  2. Following a week of trial and error (a lot of errors), I was finally able to install last night my first Hackintosh! First attempt using Clover boot loader did not work and resulted mostly in kernel panic. Second attempt with Chameleon got me closer, but still I could not figure out what was wrong. The one thing that my gut feeling told me was that I may need to make sure I have maxed out my RAM with identical SO-DIMMs. When I started, the Elitebook had one 4GB and one 2GB SO-DIMM. When I tried swapping, there were further problems which could only be resolved by resetting the BIOS to default. After that, everything went mostly smoothly. This is my current BIOS configuration: With the boot flags -x -v -f I was able to finally get the installation completed: Could create an account and log in: and these are the screenshots showing the OS X: and as what the Elitebook is known to the Apple world, as a MacBook Pro 6.2: I'll post more details in a follow-up. Many special thanks go to all who have helped, but in particular to iFire, artur-pt, PJALM, joe75, Download-Fritz and Joseph. Apologies if I forgot any of the many from this forum who have actively helped me to get this far. Attached is the Manual for the HP8440p with hardware specifications, which is useful to know what kind of kexts to install. HP8440p Manual.pdf
  3. Hi! I finally got osx running on my ultrabook i3-3217U 1.80GHz 6GB Ram Intel HD4000 Working: Atheros AR8161 Ethernet (Working with ALXEthernet.kex) Intel HD4000 (Working with "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" and "HD4K-ig=3" Via VT1802P (Sorta working with "VoodooHDA VT1708S.kext) PS2 Keyboard and Trackpad (Sorta working with some PS2 kext i found but fn keys don't work and no multitouch support.. Trying to find something better, possibly Voodoo PS2 kext) Not working: Atheros AR9485WB-EG WiFi (Waiting for Broadcom card in mail) Touch Screen (maXTouch Digitizer (8807) Talking with some guy at Touch-Base) Looks promising though. Can't adjust screen brightness. I have no idea where to start with fixing that. Hope this helps some people out The Ultrabook was ridiculously cheep and works great so defiantly recommend it. Would also love it if anyone has any fixes or drivers that i overlooked
  4. Hello! (sorry for my bad english) Finally I made my hackintosh boot and work good using Clover (UEFI). I followed different guides to do it, but now I'm unsure if I did everything well.

    Success! Asus N53sm i7 2670QM http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yAxq5SSCvQs
  6. Hi everyone, as said above I have a problem with my old laptop (Acer 4739z-4823) I'm trying to install iAtkos S3v2 but im not able to boot after it finishes installing, it just reboots immediately after the apple logo, it doesn't even take 1 second to reboot itself. These are my system aspects: Intel Pentium P6200 Intel HD Graphics 2GB DDr3 Ram 500 Gb* Acer Nplify *The 500Gb caused boot0:error, I solved it with the boot1h file. What im trying to install: iAtkos s3v2 from USB, md5 checked, re-downloaded like 5 times. Also i've tried installing the retail version but it does the same, and I can't get even to the installation screen using the flags that I use with iatkos. To get to the installation screen I need to boot using this flag, if I don't use it it restarts. -v arch=i386 busratio=17 but it doesn't work when when it's already installed. I think the problem is what I select on the setup, as I don't have experience installing osx on laptops I just try random stuff, of course i've been doing some research before posting and besides that im not a n00b. I had my desktop running mountain lion but I sold it, so now I can't try other installation methods. Sorry if there is any mistake, english is my second language so if you can provide help in spanish it would be better but im ok with english too.
  7. Hi Everyone, this is my 1st post! First off, thanks to Niresh and the crew for making awesome installs that work! I tried all the other install options available in the scene but this is the only one that worked for me and nearly everything worked out of the box except, WiFi (fixed with these) and SD card reader (fixed with this), so they do now. I AM NOT A TECHNICAL EXPERT - If you ask me how to fix this or that, I don't know. I read every forum, and researched all the Hackintosh info I could and spent countless hours learning. I just now what I did works and wanted to share it here. You can do things in another way (format/make bootable USB) but I put in this article up documenting what I did and how I did it, and it works. My specs are... Toshiba Satellite P755 1004XT (Model - PSAY3L-0PX055) Purchased in Thailand. Mobile QuadCore Intel Core i7-2670QM, 2200 MHz HM65, Intel Sandy Bridge 8 Gigs (DDR3-1333 DDR3 SDRAM) NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M (2 GB) Intel HD Graphics 3000 LG Philips LP156WH4-TLA1 (Monitor)[15.6" LCD] Intel Cougar Point HDMI @ Intel Cougar Point PCH - High Definition Audio Controller [b-2] Realtek ALC269 High Definition Audio Controller Standard AHCI 1.0 Serial ATA Controller TOSHIBA MK7575GSX ATA Device (750 GB, 5400 RPM, SATA-II) HL-DT-ST BDDVDRW CT31F ATA Device (DVD) HID Keyboard Device Standard PS/2 Keyboard HID-compliant mouse Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad Atheros AR9002WB-1NG Wireless Network (WiFi) Adapter Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller (Ethernet) Your system may vary but if you have the same system I have or a Toshiba with specs close to these ou may be in luck. My laptop worked nearly out of the box with the Niresh installer, except for a few adjustments, but right now it works flawlessly with all components, sound, both graphics (Intel/nVidia) WiFi, Ethernet, all of it works, with no issues. Here is what I did to get it up and running. I'm using one 750 GB hard disk with two partitions, one for Win 7 x64 and one for MacOSX (this Hackintosh) for dual boot. I will assume you already know how to create partitions. If not you need to learn how. You need two partitions, one for Win 7 x64 and one for Mac. I named mine WIN7X64(C:/) and MacOSX(D:/). The WIN7X64 (C:/) partition already had an existing installation of Windows 7 x64 on it and the other partition (D:/) I used for file storage. I just moved all the files from the storage drive (D:/) to a Passport drive and made that partition (D:/) my MacOSX drive for this Hackintosh install. Pre Install: a.

Download TransMac here... http://www.acutesystems.com/tmac/tmsetup.zip (15 day Trial/Used for viewing Mac volumes in Win 7 x64) Edit: Added VoodooTSCSync.kext > Resolved the cpus=1 issue. Now HWMonitor reads all 4 Cores boot flag no longer needed. Be sure to read the directions and change the file to fit your CPU i3, i5, i7 etc. I removed the AtherosWifiInjector and usedthe above WiFi solution while I wait for my new fully supported WiFi card to arrive. Edit: Added RehabMan's DSDT patch bundle (most of them) and created a custom DSDT, this made a lot of things work and improved stability. I'd like to thank RehabMan for all the great work he has done and has been very helpful to me. The DSDT part can be done later after your initial install. h. Use BootIce to format your USB stick. Open the program, Select your USB stick, Click on Parts Manage, then click Repartition. It will format the drive, done. Ignore any Windows popup that asks you to format it again, just close that window. Continue... i. Use WinDiskImager to create your boot disk with Niresh (OSX-Mavericks.dmg) you downloaded. Open WinDiskImager, select your USB drive you just formatted with BootIce, and then click on the little blue folder icon to navigate to where where the Niresh OSX-Mavericks.dmg is. Click/Open that and then click "write" and WinDiskImager will start writing the Niresh DMG file to the USB. If you get an error while writing to the USB drive just repeat the process and write again. Done. Here we go! 1. Installing: MAKE SURE NO OTHER DRIVES OR DEVICES ARE PLUGGED INTO USB PORTS (mouse okay). Put the Niresh USB stick you made into your computer, power on, and then hit f12 (or whatever key it is that allows you to select the boot device in your BIOS and select boot from the USB drive. 2. The Niresh menu will pop up. IMPORTANT: Select the USB drive OSX and then hit the space bar and use these boot flags... cpus=1 -f -v (<<<--- If you don't use those flags the installer will hang up and not work correctly) 3. Hit the <Enter> key. You will see the program loading in verbose mode going through all the stuff and then it will get to [AGPM] something... and appear to halt, it doesn't. It just takes a couple of minutes to get past this part (3-5 minutes in my case). You will now get to the installer screen. Select your language and click the arrow and wait until you see the menu bar on top (or it may appear before that) but don't continue through the install just yet. For me, I had to select my language first before the menu bar appeared at the top of the screen. 4. You will see the menu bar at the top of the screen. Go to Utilities/Disk Manager and use the Disk Manager to format (erase) your already created MacOSX partition (Mine is named MacOSX). Select your Mac partition and format it (erase) it as Journaled mode. When it has finished formatting, close Disk Manager and continue on with the setup install package. It takes about 30 minutes. When it is done, it may try to automatically reboot, don't reboot into the new Hackintosh install yet. Shut down. 5. Boot into Windows and open Windows Explorer. You will see the Mac drive there (mine is called MacOSX)... Note: If you don't see the MacOSX drive in Explorer, open Administrative Tools/Computer Management/Disk Management and select your MacOSX partition by right clicking on it and then choose Change/Assign a drive letter. It will then appear in Explorer. Working in Exporer now, go to your MacOSX drive and navigate to System/Library/Extensions... and copy (replace) the three two following kexts... NullCPUPowerManagement.kext and FakeSMC.kext AtherosWiFiInjector.kext now (that you downloaded before). Shut down and reboot. 6. Upon reboot you will need to hit a key to stop the automatic Niresh boot-loader. Now you will have some boot options in the Niresh bootloader of what you can load. Select the MacOSX HD (or whatever you named your Mac partition) and then press the space bar. At the bottom of the screen you'll see a small window to type in bootflags. Type in these boot flags... cpus=1 -f -v Then hit <Enter> The verbose boot process will go again and then you'll get to the Mavericks account setup screen, so go through all that. In my case the screen was all chopped up and full of artifacts but I just clicked around and got through and got my account setup. NOTE: This is due to the fact the new install hasn't been completed and the kext files and all the permissions will need to be updated before it works right. Go ahead and finish the account creation process. 7. Mavericks starts loading... Screen may still look wrong but just go on letting Mavericks load. DON'T CLICK OR TOUCH ANYTHING!!! The Niresh install program starts running (with Indian music playing) and repairs all the permissions and cache. At this point I had a funky looking screen but it still worked and the Niresh updater finished. Remember, don't click or touch anything until it is fully completed and your hard disk light shows no activity. Takes 10 minutes or so. When it is all done, shut down. STOP!!! Now boot back into Windows 7. Go to the MacOSX volume again in Windows Explorer and open the Extra folder (in the root of the drive). Then open up the file called smbios.plist to edit its contents. I use Edit Pad Pro (right click/send to/Edit Pad Pro). Replace the contents with this... <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com...yList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>SMbiosvendor</key> <string>AppleInc.</string> <key>SMbiosversion</key> <string>MBP81.88Z.0047.B1E.1109091244</string> <key>SMboardproduct</key> <string>Mac-94245A3940C91C80</string> <key>SMfamily</key> <string>MacBookPro</string> <key>SMmanufacturer</key> <string>AppleInc.</string> <key>SMproductname</key> <string>MacBookPro8,2</string> <key>SMserial</key> <string>C02GM530DF8X</string> </dict> </plist> and then save the file. Be sure to make a copy of the original first! Note: You need an smbios.plist that matches as closely to the computer you have in order for it to work properly. I tried several, this one worked. You may have to experiment with different ones. Where to get them? Google it! Or try here... Every Mac 8. After you alter the smbios.plist file, shut down, power up, and then reboot the MacOSX partition again from the Niresh boot-loader, remembering to use the flags... (cpus=1 -f -v ) 9. Upon reboot my system was working perfectly! (I thought). It all works, Sound, Screen Saver, Sleep, HW Monitor, all of it. Wait... except the WiFi. Why? We already installed that kext through Windows Explorer. If the same thing happened to you and you got no WiFi after installing initially, no problem... 10. Open up Kext Wizard and navigate to your Windows 7 drive (I can see my drive C:/ in my Mac install in the Computer tab) and locate the AtherosWiFiInjector.kext on your Windows 7 drive and install it with the Kext Wizard. If you can't open your Windows drive from within your Mac install, then quit, go back into Windows, copy the AtherosWiFiInjector.kext file to a USB drive, boot back into MacOSX (with flags) and then use the Kext Wizard to install the file from the USB stick. After it finishes installing click on maintenance and repair tab in the Kext Wizard and choose the repair all permissions in System and Cache folders option. When that process is complete, shut down, reboot as before, and don't forget the FLAGS! This has since been fixed using a custom DSDT for my laptop. You can learn how to do that by reading other posts of mine and search the forum for how to create your own custom DSDT. Note: I use Windows Explorer to copy all the kext files I need to the Desktop on my Mavericks drive (D:/MacOSX). I created a folder on the Mac Desktop (In Explorer it is found under Users/My user name/Desktop/ and I use that folder to copy things from my PC to the Mac. This is very useful and it works both ways because I can access my Windows partitions from Mavericks and copy/paste/transfer files Win-Mac or Mac-Win. 11. SUCCESS!!! If you are like me, you have a fully functional Toshiba P755 running MacOSX Mavericks! My laptop works flawlessly, it all works, Movies, screen saver, You Tube, Skype, WiFi, iTunes, App store, sound, ethernet, everything. I didn't try the HDMI but I never use it so I am not worried about that. In the System Info app all is present and accounted for including both the Intel and nVidia graphics. I also have a USB WiFi stick and that works perfectly also. Final thoughts: The only thing I haven't figured out is how to boot without having to use the flags (Solved with DSDT) but the way it is is fine with me. I am sure there is a way to boot without them, but right now I have a perfectly dual booting Win/Mac and everything works so I'll leave it at that until I read enough on how to get it to boot right without having to use the flags (fixed). After endless hours of trial and error I found what works. For me that was the Niresh option, I tried all the others without success, but don't let that stop you from trying other methods, use what works for you and your system. Edit: Your next mission is to learn how to create and apply a custom DSDT after you get your initial install working. Fortunately, this laptop is fairly compatible as it is, almost everything worked for me after the initial install, except battery, WiFi, SD Card Reader, but now everything works and I have only minor issues to work on. Your custom DSDT will allow a lot of options and there are a lot of fixes already available as mention above (RehabMan's resources). It really isn't that hard to do if you take the time to study and learn. Once you get the basic understanding of it the process gets easier. I hope this guide was useful and you have the same success I did!
  8. First things first, I won't tell you everything how I've done it, because I'm to stupid for it! Anyways, let's start that I do an educational training right now and we're working with iMac's, someday it annoyed me to work 5 days with a Mac and 2 days with a PC. So I decided to make a Hackingtosh Build. Today I want to give you my thoughts about my Build, what kext's I've used and of course, the world's most important advice, what isn't working. (Or at least I couldn't get to work, because I don't care about that one) (And I really like pixel art btw.) MoBo — Gigabyte Z77-D3H CPU — Intel i7 3770 @ 3.4GHz GPU — EVGA Nvidia GTX660 3GB RAM — 2x Kingston 99U5471 4GB each HDD — 1x Samsung 1TB SATA; 2x Server Drives with 120GB each (unknown and dead german company) DVD-Drive — Samsung (who wants to know that {censored}, I don't) Power supply — 1000 Watts (same company as the HDD's, I own this PS for ages now , doesn't fit properly in the case tho... ) Case — NZXT source 210, white, as a Hackingtosh should be! Hot pics of are attached below Photos.zip dcai777 – for the buying advice and OS Setup Laberlohe – for the CPU compatibility buying advice keiner99 – for the Gigabyte MoBo recommendation and informing me about the Ozmosis Bios (Flashing the Bios was really easy btw.) *will be done when I'm home * Overall view ( no sexy pixel art picture of that Title D: ) It was worth buying thoose parts, in the future I'll be buying a SSD and 3 Monitors too, but right now it's ok. What does not work? USB WiFi was a pain to get working and after tons of kexts installing and removing I've found a working one. But I still getting disconnected sometimes for no reason. Sadly that you cannot use the internal GPU with the PCI one, even tho it's set in UEF. In any Linux distro that works. The Reason for the 3 new monitors are basicly that the current one's are too old and not the same inch size, in fact, they're still VGA Monitors. But the other Reason is, that the EVGA Card only has one DVI-I connector that can be converted to VGA, DVI-D isn't possible to VGA and HDMI to VGA is first dumb and second of all, not that cheap. What I'm happy with. Everything is really smooth, couldn't play any games but cinebench told me that it should be good. Also if anyone wants to know this, Minecraft with Ultra shaders works fine. (That was the only game that I could download quickly) And that's the thing why I like Unix, it can't crash and/or slow down you're PC after having it for like 3 years. If a Applications isn't responding, just force it to close, not like windows to wait for everything. I've compared the PC at work ( iMac8,1 ) and mine with some CPU/RAM/GPU intensive Apps like SublimeText (while running a python code to generate a file with 500k empty lines with a delay of 1000ms) After Effects, Illustrator, InDesign, Blender, Parallels and Chrome (80+ Tabs opened), the iMac clearly lost, but I was amazed that mine didn't even slow down, I even had 20% CPU free to use! So that's that - I guess, have a good day, dcai777 forced me to do this, it hurt me. My name is max by the way..
  9. PGHammer

    ASUS P5G41-M LX2/GB

    The dual-boot is now a triple! Windows 8 Pro x64 (solo drive) along with ML and Mavericks DP1 (sharing a drive on separate GPT partitions). CPU - Intel Q6600 (original Core 2 Quad - four years dead) GPU - VisionTek AMD Radeon HD5450 iSilence LAN - Realtek RTL8111E (R1000v3 kext imported from ML) I'm currently connected to my display (Acer H233H.bmid) via DVI - will test HDMI shortly. UPDATE - HDMI works for graphics; just not for audio. No CI/QE (however, that is just as true in ML, therefore a quibble).
  10. It took me days to figure out how to get a fully working (sleep included) 10.7.2 install on my (base) lifehacker build...no single post made a step by step solution for me so I'm posting it here in the hopes that it'll help you out... Let's start with my hardware: Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.83Ghz Mobo: EP45-UD3P Rev 1.6 RAM: 4GB Patriot DDR2 SSD: OCZ Vertex 3 (highly recommended for speed) GFX: Gigabyte AMD Radeon 6870 (Swapped out my 9800GTX for this card so I could get native HDMI working...pretty sure there aren't any issues, other than the infamous DVI-HDMI issue with lion and the 9800 so my guide should still work) Step 1: It was a mess trying to upgrade directly from my 10.6 install so I made a clone of my working 10.6 HDD to another spare drive I had using Carbon Copy Cloner. We'll come back to this in the later steps of this guide... Step 2: Use Kakewalk 4.1.1 for this board. AGAIN use Kakewalk. It has native support for the EP45-UD3P which helps with the DSDT stuff Step 3: Follow the directions for a CLEAN install of 10.7.2. You'll have to format your drive but don't worry because you have all of your data cloned on that spare drive mentioned in step 1. Step 4: The Trendnet Gigabit card is no longer recognized in 10.7, but if you have the rev 1.6 mobo, the ethernet ports are recognized so you're good to go. Step 5: Once you have internet, download [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] 4.1.0 Lion Edition from TonyMac86's site. http://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2010/02/[url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]-ultimate-post-installation.html Step 6: Launch [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] and ONLY check the following: System Utilities Realtek ALC8xxx (Make sure everything in the dropdown menu of this box is checked) Lnx2mac's Realtek Gigabit Ethernet 2.0.6 for 10.7 IOUSBFamily Rollback Click Continue and let [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] do all of the heavy lifting. Install the Lnx2mac driver and Restart. Your sound issues should be resolved by now. If not, run [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] again only checking Realtek ALC8xxx Step 7: To resolve the sleep issues (the biggest headache EVER!) download sleep enabler from this link: http://www.osx86.net/view/1771-sleepenabler_for_10.7.1_-_10.7.2_latest_beta.html Here's the most important part: Drag the full Sleepenabler.kext folder to /System/Library/Extensions. Your computer will ask you for your password...so enter it. Run Kext Utility and restart. Step 8: Plug in your cloned backup of your 10.6 system and use migration assistant (/Applications/Utilities) to transfer your apps, settings, BG, etc. Step 9: Once your transfer is complete, go into your main HDD drive and delete the folder "Extras (from your old...something or other)." This just gets rid of the old extras folder and causes less confusion for your hack. Step 10: Enjoy. App store works, iTunes Matching works, MacZfs works...and is glorious for software Raid 5 storage, SLEEP WORKS...HELL YEAH!!! (Wakeup from network, timed sleep...it all works) Hopefully this helps you guys out. Let me know if you have great success...it'sa niiiiice.
