  1. Hello My wife's early 2009 Snow Leopard iMac has started failing to boot properly and I'm looking for some troubleshooting tips. Booting from cold, it gets past the logon screen and starts loading the desktop. It's quite slow at this point, but does load all the (hundreds of!) icons on the desktop. It also tries to re-open Firefox which had a lot of tabs open. Initially it would load a Firefox window but not complete loading the internals. On one boot I think I managed to close Firefox and now it still tries to load but just displays "Firefox" in the title bar with no windows. I can initially access a few menus, spotlight, Finder, the dock, but any further action results in a beach ball for these, and they can't be accessed again. I was able to navigate Finder to try to launch Terminal but just it just gave me the beach ball. I've left it like this for about half an hour but it doesn't get any further and I have to force shutdown (long press of power button). I tried booting to safe mode (holding down S on startup) but the end result was the same. I've been able to boot to a live ubuntu USB disk and can access files on the hard disk, so I've started a backup. We have a time machine backup but it's not that recent. I'm hoping it's just a corrupt file, but suspect it's the hard disk starting to fail. What's the best way to troubleshoot this? Thanks
  2. I've successfully installed High Sierra (10.13.0) on my system using Clover: 2x Intel Xeon E5410 16GB Ram GTX 950 Everything is running fine except the GPU. I've tried the web driver's latest version and 378. but both are very laggy/sluggish. I've also tried installing Lilu and nVidiaGraphicsFixUp kexts but they didn't change anything. Have someone managed to make this card work with High Sierra?
  3. In this video I first show the boot time of my system running on an OCZ Vertex 3 SSD APFS formatted and with TRIM enabled. As you can see the boot has a long pause at these "FIPSPOST_USER" stuff. The solution that always worked for me is to create a time machine backup and restore to disk. As you can see after the restoring that long pause is drastically reduced. The initial boot time is 45 seconds circa, after restoring is down to 22 seconds. TRIM is still enabled and disk is APFS.
  4. Hello there, I've successfully installed Yosemite on my PC and everything is working fine except the system is very laggy (almost unusable) My specs are: CPU: Intel Core2Duo E7500 2.93GHZ GPU: AMD 5570 1GB Ram: 4GB M.B: Gigabyte G41-MT-S2P What could possibly be causing the problem? Or is my system just not strong enough? Should I try El Capitan or would it naturally require more power than Yosemite?
  5.

  6. Hello there, i have a Problem with my new installed System. I installed with clover. I have a Fusion Drive Set up with a 256GB Samsung 840 SSD and a 3TB Seagate Barracuda HDD. I noticed that i forgot to enable trim. So i did that but there is no change. Rebooted several Times. I only get about 30-40 MB/s write on my FD. Its writing the my SSD (looking at it with "iostat disk0 disk1 1") I don't know what to do. Could it be a bad clover config? I attached it. Or does it take some time to get it fixed? All drives show up with SATA 6Gpbs connection and the SSD now has Trim enabled. Greetings Julian config.txt

    Very slow installation

    Hey guys, i've been trying to get Mac os x 10.8.3 Mountain leopard on my PC since yesterday.. no luck tho.. i can get to installer and use disk utility and everything, installation runs fast until 18 minutes show up.. then its slow as hell, i left it for the whole night and when i woke up there was still 7 minutes to finish.. my specs: AMD Phenom x4 965 BE 8GB DDR3 Sapphire HD5670 1GB ddr5 MSI 760G-P43 (FX) - i know, this MB wasnt showed on compatibility list but i gave it a try Can somebody help me somehow ? Now its on 16 minutes to go and slow as hell.. flags used : arch=x86_64 npci=0x2000 -v -f -x
  8. After some research (took me a year ) I think I finally found a solution to get a more smoother interface. I don't know if this also fixes "Channel Timeout" errors, more testing is needed. Some history: After reading several topics/post about power-states that are used on GeForce-cards, I found out that the Fermi series only has 3 P-states instead of 4 (or more). P-states can control clockings on a GPU down or up when needed. (Down when more 'power' is needed/Up when being more idle) You can check your clocks by running the tool nvidia Inspector in Windows My EVGA GeForce 450 GTS (1GB) has the following clock-speeds: State 3 (lowest energy use) CPU Clock: 50Mhz CPU Memory: 324Mhz State 2 (mid. energy use) CPU Clock: 405Mhz CPU Memory: 324Mhz State 1 (high. energy use) CPU Clock: 783Mhz CPU Memory: 1.80Mhz After looking in Windows 7 what state the nVidia card runs on, I found out that this is usually state 3. In OS X however I could only get smooth animations if the GPU was running in state 2. My theory is that OS X simple needs more 'power' because it is running on OpenGL and their are way more animations (enabled) than on Windows. I also checked how my card was running on Linux (KDE). When using their interface I also find out my card was more in state 2 than in state 1. Editing AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext: To set the correct clock-speeds based on load, editing AGPM.kext was needed since they are undefined for my GPU. After searching through some post, I found out that some users were using all the 4 'load-fields', when my Fermi-card only has 3. Also some users simple tried to disable the last two, by setting really high values. This should prevent the CPU hitting state 3. Some users claim that state 3 is causing the freezes and the slow interface. My theory is that the GPU doesn't switch to state 2 when needed. It is either taking to much time for the GPU to reach state 2 or it would simply mean that the GPU doesn't like being on state 2 all the time for some reason. To make a long story short: I wanted to have a smooth interface, but also don't wanted the GPU to be fully loaded all the time (causing me a high energy bill). At the moment I'm using iMac12,2 as model. This because my i5-2400 seems to be inside this model. By setting this model, it also loaded the AGPM.kext. These are the values I have chose for my GPU (device id 0dc4): <key>Vendor10deDevice0dc4</key> <dict> <key>BoostPState</key> <array> <integer>0</integer> <integer>1</integer> <integer>2</integer> </array> <key>BoostTime</key> <array> <integer>2</integer> <integer>2</integer> <integer>2</integer> </array> <key>Heuristic</key> <dict> <key>ID</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>IdleInterval</key> <integer>200</integer> <key>SensorOption</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>TargetCount</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>Threshold_High</key> <array> <integer>70</integer> <integer>87</integer> <integer>100</integer> </array> <key>Threshold_Low</key> <array> <integer>0</integer> <integer>60</integer> <integer>92</integer> </array> </dict> <key>LogControl</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>control-id</key> <integer>17</integer> </dict> As you can see (or don't) I have simply removed the last row (aka row 3). My GPU is clocking as it should be and I can enjoy movies again. Also the sound from the GPU fan seems to be lower as it normally would, since this is also controlled by the GPU-clock. Setting details: I have set the IdleInterval from 250 to 100. It seems that setting this as 250 it takes to long for the GPU to switch to a higher or lower state. My theory is that the 250 value is set for the GFX0 (aka the nVidia/ATI-GPU) because it 'only' needs to render a game/high-use application. When the 100 IdleInterval of the Intel GPU, is needed because more/faster switching is needed for 'normal' use. The BoostPState and the BoostTime simple defined what state to be used when an application needs more 'power'. The SensorOption should need to be set to read-out the GPU-status. The TargetCount should be the state were the GPU should focus on. At least I think so, please let me know if you have more/better information. Testing: I would like to see some (test) results from Fermi-card users. That's why I posted this as new topic. But please know that doing this is at your own risk! As 'proof' please check the following pictures: Idle (4% idle or less): Browsing/doing stuff: (more than 4% load) Benchmarking: (more than 45% load) AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext.zip
  9. Hi! I have an OS X El Capitan installed on my main hackintosh. Everything works smooth instead of sound and video playback. When I try to play a video on YouTube audio gets choppy and video is out of sync with sound. Even all system sounds are choppy and crackling. Also my clock runs a little bit slower than it should be. 1 hour lasts average 65 minutes. Also when I set my PC for sleep it goes to sleep but after waking up it restarts. I can't figure out why it's not working. I was trying to fix these problems by myself but I failed and couldn't find the solution. I found that manually setting FSB would help but with a lot of experimenting it didn't work Can anyone help me?

  10. Hi guys, This is my very first topic here. Hello to everyone I have not yet adventured myself on trying to install Mac on my PC. I wanted to use Mac on VMWare for the time being till I get some time to do more reading on how all this works. With that being sad, I have a Mac OSX 10.7 VMWare in my USB drive, 2 cores and 3GB memory allocated. It runs smooth! The boot is fast, around 1 minute. Where I click, it responds. Every program I open, it opens fast. XCode 4 is fast Now, I have my Mac OS X 10.10 also in a VMWare running from my SSD drive. 4 cores and 8gb of memory. It takes close to TEN MINUTES to boot. XCode is impossible to use. Everything is just super slow. I downloaded both VMWares off the internet, I even didnt build myself. I just can't understand why why so slow. I want to use OSX 10.10 to be able to use XCode 6, so I really would like to fix this sluggishness problem. Is anyone experiencing this? I am using VMWare workstion 11 and virtualization is enabled in my UEFI Thanks Ps: I am happy to post a video of 10.10 running to show how slow it is.
  11. Otherwise, with -x (safe mode) boot extremely fast. My config.plist attached bellow. Please help. Everything works fine, but it make me crazy. Windows loading in 2 seconds. In verbose mode, "missing bluetooth controller transport" displayed long. config.plist.zip
  12. Hi to everybody, After a lot of time and troubles I have a (nearly) fully functional hackintosh. To make this dream real (lol) I need your help in some problems, first of all audio. The audio chip of my mb (signature) is realtek alc1150. I found a lot of guides (most of that on "toleda methods"), but nothing work for me, neither "apple hda audio" or other solutions ! The only admissible (is it?) solution is with vodoohda 2.8.8. Sound was popping and I solved it with the midi configurator of mac os x (i changed Hz). I had it on HDMI, but i can't slide volume down or up, when i plug in headphones the pc doesn't switch automatically the output source and the volume in headphones is ridicolously low. But when i use headphones as output I can slide volume. I tried tipical solutions to solve it, but, again, nothing solved. Another problem is that internal hd (i use it only for storage) is slow. It is formatted in NTFS because I use it also on windows. I really notice its slowness when I modify a song on iTunes (library stored there), I use Tuxera to write on it and I don't know what other file system I can use because there are some files (big sized like games) that I can't move on a fat32 hd. I test vga card and results are better on windows (sigh). What can I do to improve vga performance on mac? How can I optimize all the machine in few words. Thank you very much for all your time I appreciate it. [|OFFTOPIC| I installed and deleted MacFuse (a program for ntfs), but I can't remove panel on settings.]

    Slow Boot

    So I've succesfully installed Mountain Lion (except for some problems regarding audio and iCloud). But it takes more than a minute to boot. It hangs at Waiting for DSMOS for about 30 seconds :S What can I do to fix this problem? Thank you very much!
  14. Hi its my first post(and sorry for my english), I have a problem after update 10.9.2, its my first hackintosh ,in secure mode all works well, but if i try to boot it normal its works slow and laggy. I try 3 kernels with their own System.kext and Sandbox.kex and a lot of bootflags...the only thing i know its that if disable my graphic card "nv_disable=1" it works ok... but without graphics ,so i think its a graphic problem... My build CPU: FX 8350 MB: MSI 970 Gaming GPU: GTX 770 Gigabyte some more? EDIT: Solved!!!!! I only change the S/L/Extensions Folder with the backup from 10.9.0 and it works fine but i want to know...:Works te same folder (i think it was graphics kext) to...10.9.5???
  15. Hi. Hopefully I posted this in the right forum This is a long post, and I can't expect everyone to read through it all. So to summarize: Got a defective 27" iMac (late 2012 with 2.9GHz i5 and GTX 660M). I want to build the hardware into a Mac Pro tower, without the original (broken) screen attached everything runs SLOW as hell. I've made some progress by deleting a few kext-files, but as I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing I hope someone here can help to improve performance even further --- Story: I got a 27" (late 2012) iMac for free that a customer at our shop had dropped on the floor. The result was a broken chassis and screen, but everything else was working just fine. The customer got a new one through his insurance, so he didn't care what happened to it. Here's a picture of it: http://s40.photobucket.com/user/Konsolkongen/media/DSC_0123_zpsrysh5qph.jpg.html So after having tested that everything worked perfectly, I decided to remove the hardware from inside. Ideally I want to build this into a Mac Pro tower, and I didn't want to have a big broken screen standing around. I was a bit concerned how the iMac would react when I removed the screen. Would I even be able to see the recovery menu on a monitor connected to the thunderbolt port? I expected that this would be a huge problem, and that the iMac would always assume the original screen was still present. Fortunately this wasn't the case. With the screen removed the iMac just defaulted to use the one connected with Thunderbolt. This was neat, but unfortunately nowhere near perfect. Because, without the original screen in place, the iMac is missing at least one temperature sensor and it just goes ape{censored} to say the least. This means that the fan runs at max speed all the time, easily correctable with a fan control program, but much worse, everything runs so slow that you wouldn't believe it. I guess what happens is that the computer under-clocks itself by a large amount. And I'm not exaggerating when I say that it takes 8-9 hours to install OS X Mountain Lion from the recovery menu This obviously makes the computer unusable. So I put it away in my cellar until last week where I decided to give it another go. Reason for this, was that I was reading a bit about how to make Macbook Pros perform at full speed without an installed battery. And I thought that some of that might apply to the iMac too. This is what it looks like on my desk atm: http://s40.photobucket.com/user/Konsolkongen/media/DSC_0618_zps8ujhxs9l.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0 So, having since then used the 1TB hard drive in my other desktop PC, I had to go through OS X install-hell once more. It took about 9 hours total, because my internet connection isn't very fast I spent most of Saturday evening last weekend messing with it. It wasn't as easy as I had hoped, and when I was just about to give up, I decided to try and delete AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext and AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementClient.kext. Why? Because I seemed to remember these two files being mentioned in the Macbook Pros case. I restarted and to my big surprise this actually improved the speed of the computer by a lot! It still isn't perfect, but at least it's somewhat usable. Intel Power Gadget says that my CPU is now running at 1.6GHz, it should be 2.9. I tried running GFXbenchGL from the App store. I had tried this when the original screen was connected, so I know that it should be able to run the T-rex scene at about 60fps. It ran it at about 9-10fps :/ Then I found the file called AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext. I didn't give it too much thought, the computer was still not working as desired, so I deleted it and rebooted. Now the T-rex scene runs at about 30fps! Still that's not really good enough :/ I found this site: osx86.tistory.com/243 which has a description of a lot of the kext files. And I've tried deleting several of those with not so great results This resulted in many cases where I had to wait another 8-9 hours for OS X to reinstall, all while the fan is going crazy Now I've finally gotten tired of that, so I have several back-up images, at various stages, on an external hard drive, so I can quickly get it back up and running. I hope someone here will be able to help me get this thing up and running perfectly The chassis and broken screen was thrown away months ago. This is a list of the components I still have: Motherboard Power supply Fan Ram (not the original, gave those away) 3x 2GB 1333MHz DDR3. Harddrive Webcam and cable Monitor cable that was used to attach the 27" display to the motherboard. Here's what I don't have anymore: Chassis Screen Microphone (unless it's attached to the motherboard or webcam?) Headphone socked (actually a damn shame, because Apples headphone amplifiers are very nice, and now I'll have to find a cheap USB DAC instead. Unless someone happens to know the pinout of the connector on the motherboard? ) So yeah that about sums it up. It's still a pretty decent computer by todays standards, so I would hate to throw it away. I assume that the answer lies with the kext files somehow, and I hope someone here has enough knowledge about this, and can guide me to get 100% performance out of my system, because I sure as hell don't know what I'm doing I don't suppose anything can be done about the extremely slow Recovery menu and OS X installation. Upgrading from Mountain Lion to Yosemite is another 7 hours btw. But I can live with that since it's only needed a few times a year Thank you for your time.
  16. Hey everyone, The past month I've been ripping my neck trying to get this installation of OSX Snow Leopard running on my machine. Everything works perfectly, QE/CE, sound, ethernet, video drivers, etc. It's pretty much a working installation EXCEPT it's very sluggishly slow. I don't mean constantly slow, OSX freezes up and locks up every minute or so. I'd be surfing just fine or opening a folder, things work great, then beach ball cursor for 2 minutes, then back to normal. Any ideas how to fix this? I think it has something to do with my boot options or external HD. I don't boot with any boot flags, they're all in my org.chameleon.Boot.plist in E/E. I'm booting with mach_kernel, using GraphicsEnabler=y, -force64, arch=i386, -v, cpus=1 I'm currently running Snow Leopard 10.6.7 via Hazard's Distro 10.6.2 AMD/Intel. I upgraded to 10.6.7 by combo update+legacy update. (I've tried every other distro and even tried using retail DVD with Nawcom/[url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] but no go) AMD Athlon X3 450 (3.2Ghz), 8GB of RAM, GeForce 9500 GT. Bootup takes very long (approx 5 minute to access desktop) and file transfers (internal or external) takes so long. 1GB takes like 30 minutes to transfer. A lot of the apps crash such as Chrome, iTunes, etc. (Probably because I'm running 64?) Bootloader Chimera doesn't work either, I have to always use the Hazard disc to select the Mac Partition. Do you guys have any idea why it's bugging out? It's weird, some tasks are fast like animations, but navigation is very slow and freezes etc. Many thanks! PS: When you boot, does the bootloader use the boot.plist from E/E or the one in the SystemPrefs folder? Also, when you type in your own flags at bootloader, does that cancel the ones in the boot.plist?
  17. Hi, Here's my config : i7 860 Maximus III Formula GTX 780 2x8go ram DDR3 Card Silverstone PCI Express 2 SATA 6gbps SSD 850 EVO 500 Go Dongle USB>Jack natively recognized. I have a problem quite unordinary I just migrated to Mac OS Sierra, and everything works but the OS itself lags, whether it's in the applications or opening the Finder, the preference panel, etc. However my graphic card is well detected and the whole hardware is detected I had the same problem on El Captain, that I resolved by recreating a cleaner EFI Clover. After doing that, it was perfectly fluid, but it didn't work on Sierra. I'm on Clover r3773 (see on the screenshot) By the way, I ticked CloverEFI 64-bits BiosBlockIO to have the support of my PCI card and therefore make the most of the SATA 3 I'm configured in iMac 13,2 (the 14.2 made my GTX780 crash at boot) Thanks !
  18. Since getting HWMonitor and HWSensors set up the boot time has gone from ~7 seconds to over 30. Looking at the boot log I think it may be something to do with multiple FakeSMC kexts installed but I'm not sure how to resolve it.

  19. Hi, After I installed El Capitan and Clover Bootloader, when OS starting, loading bar loads very slow when I choose to load bootloader from HDD is more than 10 minutes, but when I choose Clover from USB 3 stick, loading is fast. What need to do?

    Mavericks is very slow

    I have Mavericks set up with the latest kernel from Andy, this one: SinetekBronzovkAnVoodoo v2.0.0:xnu-2422.1.72-AMD/BUILD/obj/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64 It installed correctly and boots correctly, but, it is extremely slow. I have almost 100% of my CPU being used constantly, as well as my RAM. Is there something I may have done wrong or is this a common error?
