  1. Hi! I'm new to hackintoshing. I have the following system and I'm a bit confused by all the guides and compatibility issues. Will my system be hackintoshable? Motherboard - ASUS M5A78L-M LX V2 CPU - AMD Athlon II X2 270 GPU - ATI Radeon HD 5450 If yes, which guides and software should I use? Thanks!
  2. Mojave (and maybe High Sierra 10.13.6) on Asrock H370M-ITX/ac and getting RX560 or RX580 to work with Intel graphics for full hardware acceleration Components used: Core i7 8700, UHD 630 Gigabyte Radeon RX560 Wifi/BT BCM943602BAED (DW1830) M.2 Sapphire Nitro RX 580 Samsung PM961 NVMe SSD *This guide requires you to know the basics, meaning how to create a macOS install drive, installing and using Clover. There are great beginners guides out there! As always you need at least FakeSMC to boot, every other kext I’ve used is mentioned in the guide. For Mojave beta you need to be enlisted with your Apple-ID in Apple’s beta programme. What is described here may work for High Sierra 10.13.6, but I doubt it to be reliable. Even in early beta status (PB3) Mojave runs much more stable and smoother than High Sierra ever did for me.* *UPDATE Mojave final* For the final release of Mojave you can use my attached Clover folder as a reference. If you don't have a Radeon RX 580 installed or you prefer WhatEverGreen just use the DSDT_no_graphics.aml and rename it to DSDT.aml. You need to have updated to BIOS V3.00 to use it. *UPDATE* I've updated to BIOS Revision 3.00 which seems to work fine in contrast to 1.50. Already compiled a new DSDT and uploaded it alongside a new config.plist. You can use both if you like. If you don't use a RX 580 you need to edit the PEG0-PEGP section in the DSDT to adjust it to your graphics hardware. With this DSDT and config in place you'll only need FakeSMC, IntelMausiEthernet, USBinjectall plus XHCI-300-Injector, Lilu plus AppleALC for Sound. You can add Shiki for iTunes DRM playback if you like, I've uploaded the latest version as well. Avoid Whatevergreen at this time. UEFI-BIOS settings: The board comes with BIOS version 1.20, there is an update 1.50 on the Asrock website. Usually it is good to stay updated but in this case I’ll recommend to stay on 1.20, because the 1.50 version seems to be unstable and I had restarts upon wake and things like that I couldn’t get fixed even with dsdt patches. So I just downgraded to 1.20 which runs fine. Settings needed: Just the usual. Disable fast boot and security boot (everything Windows-related), disable vt-d and enable XHCI hand-off. Activate multi monitor support and set VRAM to 64MB to activate the Intel IGPU. From what I’ve read most people recommend 128MB but I find the 64MB setting to be more reliable, getting artifacts with settings below or above 64MB. 128MB may be needed for 4k support, though. *Update* BIOS V 3.00 with Mojave final release works fine with 128MB. As for nVidia users: You may have to disable the Intel graphics. I’m using an AMD card and that is the brand to go these days since Apple decided to work with AMD Clover and power management: I recommend upgrading to 4586. It seems that Aptiomemoryfix is now working with H370 chipsets. I stayed on OsxAptiomemoryfix2 together with Emuvariable and it works. Feel free to experiment. *Update* Now using OsxAptioV3. For power management with your CoffeeLake cpu you can just tick plugin type within Clover or compile a ssdt with Pikeralphas script. Mojave reports my cpu correctly as Core i7 since PB3, before that it is just “Unknown” but that is just cosmetic. Graphics: *UPDATE* Whatevergreen 1.2.3 now supports Displayport on Nitro RX580. Still recommend DSDT or SSDT port activation instead as it runs more reliable and faster than WhatEverGreen. *UPDATE* I updated to PB4/DP5 and switched to a Sapphire Nitro RX 580. You don't need to spoof Kabylake anymore, SMBIOS 18,x now works and can use my attached DSDT_RX580 for your convenience! You'll need it for displayport to work as primary display or else you get black screen on boot and can use only HDMI. Problems are the same as written below in the graphics section. If you need iTunes you absolutely need to keep a copy of the latest Shiki that is available, because it is discontinued. The newest WhatEverGreen-Fix (1.2.0/1.2.1) does not work! If you want to use Final Cut and don't need iTunes just stay away from Shiki or Whatevergreen. This is the worst part. Getting the Radeon to run correctly alongside the Intel graphics took me weeks to figure out. While RX570 and 580 run out of the box in most cases, the RX560 models often do not or at least not correctly. Apple even banned them from eGPU use. For my approach you cannot use “Whatevergreen.kext”, it simply didn’t work for me the way I needed it. Instead I added some fixes to my DSDT to set the correct number of ports used (DP, HDMI, DVI) and tell macOS to use the correct frambuffer. For those who are not into dsdt editing I added my DSDT, look at the “PEGP” section how it is done. This works for the RX560 using the “Acre” framebuffer, you can replace it with “Radeon”, that works too. Other cards need a different framebuffer and a different number of ports. You can do it! BTW: Do not buy this Gigabytecard!!! It has some weird VBIOS on it, which caused me nightmares before I got the card to work! Buy a Sapphire card instead, they are used by Apple too. To get full hardware acceleration for encoding videos you have to have the Intel graphics enabled alongside your AMD card. Problem is, you cannot have it running simply as a second graphics card but you’ll need to “hide” it, means telling macOS that it doesn’t have any display connectors. Otherwise you’ll have screen artifacts or in the worst case just constant crashes. This can be done by adding a certain ig-platform-id in Clover. If you use 59120003 the Intel graphics will not show up in system profiler but it is there. You can check it with iStats or HWMonitor or look if the Kaby Lake graphics kexts are loaded. This ID makes the CoffeeLake UHD 630 to be recognized as a Kaby Lake gpu that has no display ports, is just used as a helper card. You’ll need it as a helper card for video encoding. That is what Intel graphics are used for in Macs, to support video encoding on the hardware side. You can check if hardware encoding is supposedly enabled by using MacX Video Converter Pro and VDADecoderChecker. If both say “yes” and “fully supported” this is a good start. But despite the widespread belief this doesn’t mean everything is set correctly! You now have to find out, how to get both cards working together. This is the moment where you have to choose between work and fun: Are you using FinalCut Pro for video editing or are you planning to use iTunes for entertainment? Up until this day (Mojave PB3 PB4/DP5, High Sierra 10.13.6) you cannot have both working correctly! I’ll show you how it is done both ways. The best settings for Final Cut: Use the DSDT I’ve added with the respective AMD settings for the RX560 or modify them for your graphics card. Use SMBIOS for iMac17,1 (14,2 does work but picture over DP port is ugly, iMac 18,1/2/3 do not work *Since Mojave PB4 they do work at least for RX580*) in Clover. Have AppleIntelKBLGraphicsFramebufferInjector_3e9x.kextin your Clover/kexts/Other folder. Until Mojave PB2 (may work on High Sierra 10.13.6): Fake-ID 3E928086 plus ig-platform-id 59120003 These are the correct setting when installing Mojave (usually you will start with PB1 as the full installer). For Mojave PB3 and higher: Fake-ID 59128086 plus ig-platform-id 59120003 After upgrading to PB3 you will get a black screen with 3E92 fake id because PB3 introduces Coffee Lake kexts and macOS will use these kexts instead but that doesn’t work with our ig-platform-id. So you can download the update to PB3 but before installing it you’ll need to change the fake-id to a usual Kaby Lake id. While this didn’t work in High Sierra and the first two Mojave betas (meaning you didn’t get full hardware encoding) it is now magically working with PB3. It is safe to remove AppleIntelKBLGraphicsFramebufferInjector_3e9x.kext after upgrading to PB3. For Mojave PB4 and higher (including final release): Only add ig-platform-id 3E920003 and inject Intel = Yes in Clover, no need for spoofing a fake id anymore. Now iMac18,3 works best with AMD. Intel only users should use iMac18,1 instead. The best setting for iTunes and why it is the worst for Final Cut: Just do the same thing as for FinalCut, put Shiki.kext into your Clover/kexts/other folder and add -shikigva boot argument. You can use -shikigva=1 or 2 or 12 it will work either way. Now you can watch movies with iTunes, yay! But it has some sideeffects. You cannot use this setting when seriously editing with Final Cut. While this works by tricking macOS to use the IntelGraphics to play protected video content, it doesn’t seem to be the way real Macs are doing this. As soon as you open FinalCut you will notice (check this with iStats or HWMonitor) that the Intel graphics is not or only barely utilized under certain circumstances depending on your material. Instead cpu usage skyrockets, indicating that slow software rendering is used instead of hardware encoding through Intel graphics. To make it worse the Radeon still “thinks” there is an Intel graphics helping so it does not run at highest potential. Wifi and Bluetooth *UPDATE* With Mojave PB4/DP5 Bluetooth stopped working with Rehabman's kext, my MagicMouse simply isn't connecting anymore. I decided to finally remove the card because handoff isn't working anyway these days with M.2 or NGFF bluetooth on High Sierra or Mojave (tried several ones "the internet" claims they would work oob but they do not ;)). That is what I wanted Bluetooth for. If you need Wifi I recommend you go with a cheap Wifi-only card, you don't need to pay 30 or 40 $ for dual cards that won't work the way they were intended to work. If you are on a micro ATX board and can have a graphics card plus PCIe Wifi/BT-card that actually connects to a physical USB port on you're board then you may be lucky enough to have handoff working as expected. I'm having a wifi repeater laying around with an ethernet port in case I may need wifi someday on my hack. I swapped the Intel Wifi card that was coming with the mainboard plugged into the onboard M.2 port with a compatible Dell card. The DW1830 or BCM943602BAED. The wifi part runs half way out of the box, but if you want the card to appear as Apple AirportExtreme and set the country code according to your country you need to put FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext into Clover/kexts/other and add some Clover kext-to-patches by PMHeart. Name: com.apple.driver.AirPort.BrcmNIC Find: 75166644 3BA3581A 0000750C 4183FE04 7406 Replace: 66906644 3BA3581A 00006690 4183FE04 6690 Comment: AirPortBrcmNIC - PCIe in 10.13.x Name: com.apple.driver.AirPort.BrcmNIC Find: 4183FCFF 7435488D 55D0 Replace: 66C70644 45EB348D 55D0 (*this is for DE country code, change for your need) Comment: BCM4352-Country Code Bluetooth will work thanks to Rehabman’s kexts. You’ll need BrcmPatchRAM2.kext and BrcmFirmwareData.kext OR BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext. The Data.kext can be injected through Clover, just throw it into the kexts/other folder, the Repo.kext has to be installed in /Library/Extensions on your mac drive, it won’t work with Clover. I had issues with the Data.kext, Bluetooth was gone on every second or third reboot. The Repo.kext is more reliable, haven’t had any issues yet. I really don’t like the kexts to be installed in my system but I guess I have to live with it for the time being. Oh, handoff and continuity don’t work, doesn’t matter that system profiler shows them as enabled. At least it works in one way: the mac can handoff Safari pages to my iPhone, but not the other way around. Documents opened on my phone show up in the dock, but they are not loaded. This issue is around since at least High Sierra and from what I’ve read Rehabman is not going to fix this, because he founds this features not worth it. I have to disagree, these are very convenient and valuable features if you work with desktop, laptop and tablet in different situations, I miss this capability very much! Audio Audio works with Lilu.kext plus AppleALC.kext and you need to inject Layout ID=1 in Clover if you don't use a patched DSDT. For Mojave use the boot setting -lilubetaall to force the kexts to load. If you like to have DP or HDMI audio add a HDAU device to your dsdt (see mine for reference). There's an audio patch already added in my DSDT, so you don't need to use the Clover patch. Credits: Credits go to this great community! I hope I mentioned everyone in this guide whose insights made this hack possible. If I have forgotten someone please let me know! CLOVER_Mojave_Final.zip
  3. Radeon RX 580 8 GB graphics card on macOS High Sierra (as of 10.13.6), Mojave and Catalina on the P55-USB3 board: excellent performance with acceleration (Metal) OOB, no need for drivers (kexts), with 3 drawbacks, one has to do with the boot of the operating system (a solution is proposed), another with the number of rear connectors enabled (a solution is proposed) and another that only affects to one phase of the Mojave or Catalina installation (without clear solution for now).I have placed the XFX AMD Radeon RX-580 P8DFD6 8GB Triple X Edition GDDR5, 256BIT, DVI + HDMI + 3DP graphics card on a 10 year old motherboard (Gigabyte P55-USB3) in order to update the hackintosh to 10.14 Mojave and 10.15 Catalina because the card that I have used in past years, Nvidia Geforce GTX 750 1GB, has stopped working after 10.13.6 High Sierra since this was the last version for which Nvidia published the alternate web drivers that were necessary for the card to work well with graphic acceleration.The new RX 580 card needs considerably more space than the old one although it fits perfectly in an ATX case, and requires an additional power connector. It has 2 big fans that most of the time are stopped, at least in my case. In macOS it works perfectly, even with Metal acceleration, without additional drivers and without extra settings in Clover. But it has drawbacks that I comment below.Alterations during startupDuring the boot of the operating system, when the screen goes from the basic driver to the AMD driver, 2 artifacts appear randomly, they are very short in duration (from one to a few seconds): Very short flashing white screen that may or may not be accompanied by purple lines The fans runs for a few seconds (the noise is clearly audible). This behavior is solved with the installation of 2 kexts, Lilu and WhateverGreen. Lilu is an extension created by acidantheraand vit9696 among others whose function is to help to patch kexts, processes and libraries during macOS boot. It is accompanied by specific plugins for the task required, for example WhateverGreen that injects necessary patches for certain AMD, Intel and Nvidia graphics cards. It is mandatory to have both extensions together, one of them separately does not correct the problem.I have installed Lilu 1.4.4 and WhateverGreen 1.3.9 in the EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other folder of the EFI partition and artifacts have disappeared. Remember that these 2 extensions are not necessary for the card to work properly, if you tolerate those very brief distortions of the screen or the noise of the fans running for a few seconds, you can live without Lilu and WhateverGreen. Note: authors recommend that when using Lilu and WhateverGreen with Radeon cards, NO graphic settings have to be added to Clover (Inject ATI, etc.).Note: these alterations, especially the brief white screen and less frequently purple lines and fan noise, are also seen in Windows and some real Macs with the same card.Alteration during macOS installationBoot from USB > Clover menu > Install macOS from Install macOS Catalina > screen works fineBoot from USB > Clover menu > Install macOS from MacintoshHD > black screenBooting from USB > Clover menu > Boot macOS from MacintoshHD > screen works fine.In the first and third stages, screen works fine. In the second stage the screen goes black although the installation continues. The user has nothing to do at this moment so you can leave the PC working until the Clover menu is shown again, the screen is recovered, the initial account options can be configured and you can enter into the newly installed system with correct resolution and acceleration.This behavior is not corrected even by placing Lilu and WhateverGreen into the USB device. At least in my case I have not found a solution for it. Yo can install macOS perfectly with that drawback of not seeing how it progresses during the second phase of the installation.Only 2 connectors of the 5 available workThis card has 3 Display Port (DP) ports, 1 HDMI port and 1 DVI port. In my case, only 2 DP work, those that are further from the HDMI connector. It is enough if you use a single monitor or 2 monitors that can be connected by DP. But if you want to have 3 or more connected devices or some of them only have HDMI, it is necessary to enable the 5 connectors or at least 4 of them since the DVI is obsolete and does not allow resolutions as high as DP and HDMI.User foxbox has proposed a solution in a thread titled [Solved] Sapphire RX 580 Nitro + SE | black screen on HDMI and DVI. Must inject from Clover a modification to the Orinoco framebuffer (which is used in the RX 580 card) so that the 5 connectors lack a fixedly assigned address and, instead, receive it dynamically. This change is made from the KextsToPatch section of Clover. Read the post from foxbox.This has to be accompanied by 3 changes in the Graphics section of Clover: Orinoco in FB Name / Inject ATI / 5 in Video Ports. I have tested this solution in macOS Catalina and it effectively enables the 5 ports of the card but, since I only use 1 monitor, I have removed it and I am with Lilu and WhateverGreen.

  5. As I see many novices in the forum ask "How to make my Radeon working? I have bad resolution, no QE/CI...." and so on. They come to the section and have no find an answer here because all Radeons are different and they don't know where else they read about this. I want to explain all steps needed for launching the Radeon family of videocards. Bootloader. I will speak about Clover because I maintain this bootloader to know recent hardware and modern OSX. Not sure if you will have the same result with other bootloaders. I am carefully checking the injecting of ATI card and correcting it times to times. I am also accessible for bug reports. OSX version. Older card require older system, newer cards require new system. ATIRadeon9000 is possible to launch under Tiger. ATIRadeonMobilityX1400 requires 10.5-10.6. See RadeonHD topic. As I see RadeonHD3xxx was successful only in 10.5 For new AMDRadeonHD7xxx there must be 10.8.3+ system. DeviceID. This must be the first question before asking about the card. You may know the device-id from Windows->DeviceManger->VideoCard.properties->compatibleIDs You may boot into system in safe mode (key -x) and see system profiler And you may boot into Clover GUI, press F2 and get preboot.log. Find here something like 2:709 0:000 PCI (00|01:00.00) : 1002 6758 class=030000 2:709 0:000 Found Radeon model=AMD Radeon HD 6670 Series It means my DeviceID=6758 (these are hex numbers) Then you must check that Apple's drivers support your DeviceID. If not then add it! For example HD7850 has DeviceID=6819. If we look into ATI7000Controller (AMD7000... in new systems) we find 6818 here but no 6819! I show you how to do this with terminal commands. Launch /Application/Utilities/Terminal.app. Type in opened window: cp /System/Library/Extensions/ATI7000Controller.kext/Contents/Info.plist ~/Desktop So you get a copy of the Info.plist on Desktop. Edit it with TextEdit. Change 68181002 -> 68191002. Don't edit this file directly in the system folder! Then copy back by terminal. Don't use finder to copy kexts! They will have wrong permissions in this case. sudo cp ~/Desktop/Info.plist /System/Library/Extensions/ATI7000Controller.kext/Contents/ sudo rm -r -v /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/* Second command make sure next reboot the kext will use your edited info.plist. The same operation you must do with a kext AMDRadeonAccelerator or ATIRadeonX2000 or other one. Check all candidates if they contain such list of possible IDs and choose closest to you. FakeID Since Clover revision 1971+ you may just inject new DeviceID into DSDT instead of correcting kexts. See instruction here. GraphicsEnabler or Injector OSX needs to know some properties (Model name, Family, etc...) that must be somehow injected at boot time. Yes, also real Macs got DeviceProperties string from firmware. Alternatives: 1. Set InjectATI=Yes in Clover (same as GE=y in Chameleon). 2. Use custom string made with gfxutil. For whom who knows. 3. Write _DSM into DSDT. You should know what to write. 4. Use some kext like ATY_init.kext or Natit.kext. If you are sure that the kext is for your card namely. I want to say that all this methods make the same thing. Differencies in their tuning. The Clover do this automatically for most known cards at this moment. Connectors. As you may see to start HD5000-7000 some strange names used: Pithecia, Orangutan, Elodea... What are they? They are configs for framebuffer. Predefined configs how connectors are solded for cards used in real Macs. Strange but these configs rear coincide with PC card. Usually gurus make advice "choose a framebuffer that most appropriate for your card". The chances 1:10. In most cases you may find a FB name that gives you main monitor working. Or nothing at all. Great respect to bcc9 who gives us a method to correct one of config to be exactly for you. See here. My retelling for Clover is here Success example in the thread in posts 44-52 Radeon Mobility I tested Clover's methods with two users having Mobility Radeon HD5470 and HD5650M. We found that full memory and QE/CI will be achieved if we set in Clover's config LoadVBios=Yes even thou no file with bios is provided. This is the key to make Radeon Mobility working! Other problem is bad gradients or artifacts. For this case Clover accept the key InjectEDID=Yes and sometimes you also need to inject CustomEDID. See Clover instructions for details. And my results.

  6. Hi everyone, I'm trying to install High Sierra, but it's more complicate than the first Build. After Clover GUI I start the installation in Verbose mode and the sys get stuck most of the times at the line: "Please go to https://panic.apple.comto report this panic", I'm attaching the panic point photo. Thanks in advance.

    Hello world, I have decided to upload my own personally hex edited driver for the XFX Radeon 6670HD 2Gb video card with the HDMI-DVI-VGA setup. This is modified from a stock 10.9.3 AMD6000Controller.kext file with the Ipomoea personality edited to suit the connectors, encoders and transmitters for this card since they differ from the mac-based display port 6670HD model. I have tested the HDMI and DVI which appear to work at the same time since i'm dual screening with these connections currently - the screenshots can confirm this. I have yet to test the device using the VGA slot since I have no need for this connector. Hopefully it works all the same. Install to S/L/E with a utility such as Kext Wizard - backup replacements to be safe - repair permissions and then reboot. ---IMPORTANT--- The required bootflags for this kext to be activated are GraphicsEnabler=Yes aticonfig=Ipomoea atiports=3 **You will need to remove any injectors prior from either /Extra or /S/L/E though this is unlikely needed since kext graphics injection is largely outdated. **Due to the chip on the card triple monitoring is not possible. Best of luck
  8. Hi Insanlymac’ers. I have a super deal on a WX9100 Radeon Pro Vega, but I only have 12 hours to repond, or it’s gone. Is this card able to run in High Sierra and take advantage of all 16GB ram? Thanks in advance!
  9. Hey all. I'm not exactly new here, but I don't post that much. I recently installed a fresh copy of Sierra on my i7-3770k (mobo is an Asrock Z77 Pro 3), and all is well except for my GPU. I have an AMD R9 280x (ASUS R9280X-DC2T-3GD5) and I'm aware that it's difficult to get OS X of any version to boot it directly without having the Intel GPU boot the system first. I'm aware of a user whose name I can't think of's scripts and whatnot to inject device IDs etc into Clover so it boots up as you'd expect with my 280x, but that's not working. Can anyone help me get mine working properly? I've tried to go through the personality tutorial etc but I couldn't get it working right. It's important that I have utilization of my discrete GPU because I have a BlackMagic Design Intensity Pro 4k capture card out for delivery, and I'd like to use it and then use BMD's NLE (NonLinearEditor) called DaVinci Resolve to edit the videos I make. Currently I'm able to boot up with the onboard GPU as main, and then just have my three displays use the 280x, but the main GPU is still my HD 4000. I hope I'm making sense here.. Thanks in advance, Shiggitay1

  11. I'm new to the OSx86 scene and trying to get a retail Mavericks 10.9.3 build running on my Sony Vaio SVE1712BCXB. CPU is a Intel Core i5 3210M (2.50GHz) and video card is an AMD Radeon HD 7650M. The internal display is a 17" LCD with 1920 x 1080 native resolution. I am currently booting Mavericks using Clover R2689 from a USB drive. From my research I've found that many people have had trouble getting video output on the LVDS of these Sony Vaio E series laptops equipped with the Radeon HD 7650M. I've managed to get the card recognized with full QE/CI acceleration on all three outputs (LVDS, HDMI, and VGA) using my dumped VBIOS and a modified Pondweed framebuffer. My issue at the moment is that gradients are being handled poorly on the LVDS. It's very apparent in the Chess app as well as the test here: http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/gradient.php Since the gradients are handled fine on HDMI and VGA, my thought is that there is something wrong with the EDID recognition. However when I tried to modify the first byte of the basic params from 80 to 90 per freeuser16's suggestion here http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/277042-amd-radeon-hd-6650m-graphics-enabler-dsdt-hdmi-audio-acer-aspire-7750g-2674g50mnkk-gradients-fixed/page-28?do=findComment&comment=1933143 and inject a custom EDID via Clover, I get no display output on the LVDS, just a black screen with no backlighting or anything, like its turned off. If anybody has any suggestions on how I might be able to able to resolve this problem, it would be greatly appreciated. My decoded VBIOS is below. EDID is also below and the output from Windows is identical to DarwinDumper. Attached are Clover config.plist and unmodified DSDT dumped from Windows.

  12. Hello. My AMD Radeon HD 6870 graphics card just died today. I'm currently running Mac OS X 10.7.4 on an Asus P8P67 Pro motherboard. I'm now debating whether I should replace my card with another one of the same model and keep my system as is, or if I should just update my OS X to Mavericks and upgrade my graphics card along with it. I'm having a really hard time deciding because I can't find a list of Mavericks' natively supported graphics cards. I'm confused as to whether all AMD 7000 series cards are supported, or if I should consider an NVIDIA card for Mavericks. I'm a total noob and I would prefer to avoid messing with kexts and such, so if I decide to upgrade to Mavericks, I would like a graphics card that's natively supported. If I do upgrade, I would do so using Andy's method (found here). Can you guys help me decide for a good graphics card for Mavericks? I do a lot of video and photo editing, so I would like a robust card. However, I'm kind of in tight budget since I did spend some money over the holidays. Any Input would really be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  13. Hi to everyone, I'm trying to install iATKOS ML2 on an HP G62 with the switchable graphics card. Everything seems fine except this: if I boot with GraphicsEnabler=No, the PC boots up, in system info it shows an unknown ati gpu with no kext loaded, no QE CI and everything is laggy. But at least all the rest works fine. if I try to boot with GraphicsEnabler=Yes, it shows the attached errors. I'd like to totally kill the Radeon card, I'd be happy to use just the integrated Intel HD gpu, but I tried million ways (changing DSDT, kext's and all the possible boot flags..) without success. What could I do? Thanks for your help UPDATE: I tried changing the booting frame buffer using the flag AtiConfig followed by the name (ex. Langur).. Still nothing.. I always get the same error. My CPU is an Intel i3 M350 and the Radeon is a 6370M.

    Hi, everyone. I'm new here but I've have read some posts and information that is useful for the purpose. Im currently aiming to install Yosemite on my AMD pc, I have available a 16gb USB Drive and a MacBook Air for preparation files or that kind. Current setup: Gigabyte GA-870A-USB3 AMD Radeon 5770 8gb (2x4b) KINGSTON 600w Power Supply USB Mouse & Keyboard PCI-e WiFi Card (realtek) Any help would be helpful and any guide would be welcome, thanks a lot.
  16. Hello! I have been attempting to install Mountain Lion on my PC which is currently running Windows 10. Here are my current specs. CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 270 GPU: Sapphire ATI Radeon R7 240 (4GB DDR3) RAM: 8GB Motherboard: N-Alvorix-RS880-uATX (Alvorix) However, I am... not doing too well with the installation. Upon my first attempt, I was successful at getting the PC to boot into the OS X boot screen (Apple Logo with loading spinner), but it just sat there spinning and spinning, not doing anything more. So I rebooted and entered in some boot flags. I tried the following combinations: 1) amd -v -x PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=Yes npci=0x2000 2) amd -v PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x2000 3 )amd -v 4) amd Now, the results were the following: 1) The entire process stopped at "System uptime in nanoseconds = 0" 2) The process froze about a minute into the loading process with the error, "BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 No such file or directory." 3) Same result as #2 4) I can load into the Apple loading screen, but it sits forever and never actually loads the installation setup. So... My question is this: My PC specs can run Mountain Lion, correct? If not, then I apologize for wasting your time. Which versions of OS X can my PC run with the mentioned specs? How would I go about running this on my hardware? I am completely new to this process, so I apologize for my inexperience. But I thank you all for your help!

Here are the technical specifications: http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/model/NP780Z5E-T01UK-techspecs I think most of the hardware is compatible, but I am worried about the graphics card. This laptop, as many others, implement Switchable Graphics technology. I'm pretty sure that the integrated graphics card won't have a problem with OS X, but what about the ATI? Will it work? Will it switch graphics?
  25. I recently acquired a Mac Pro 1,1 and got OS X El Capitan running on it. Only issue I have run into, and could not fix with hours a googling is getting my Sapphire HD 5450 to work. As you can see in the picture it says no kext installed, Just trying to figure out what I am doing wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I an a noobie to Mac(for the most part). I have tried following guides for adding device ID and cannot get it working for me.
