  1. I upgraded my system, so trying to use older system at home. It's got GA-Z68AP-D3 i5-2500K Don't want to spend getting Graphic card. I clean installed Yosemite and when installing it with clover, the resolution comes fine without problem, however once I got to desktop after completing installation, HD3000 not recognized. tried bunch of solution from here, but all I can get is HD2000 with 7MB, thus not usable. I did have HD3000 working one time, but it was taking almost 5min to boot, then there were tons of artifacts all over the screen. Rehab man says DSDT patching is needed when using clover, did that, but did't help. So I am trying to boot with chameleon, but I get stuck at PCI configuration begin. (see attached pix) trying with npci=0x2000 or 3000 but same thing. So here is my dilemma, I can boot with clover but I get no HD3000 working, when trying with chameleon, I can't boot. Can't anyone help please?
  2. I have been trying to work out the following issue. My firewire works well enough when I boot up 10.8.5. However once it wakes from sleep I receive "Firewire GUID is invalid". In researching the issue I also noticed that on startup the console will show the "Firewire runtime power conservation disabled" entry. This leads me to believe that there is some kind of power management issue in the firewire controller. I have found several encouraging threads regarding possible fixes: Changing IRQ settings in the DSDT http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/237750-fix-for-firewire-and-hpet-irq-conflict-using-dsdt/ Firewire power conservation hack http://www.projectosx.com/forum/lofiversion/index.php/t956.html http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/235523-dsdt-auto-patcher/page-118 The solution I have been pursuing is to incorporate the DSDT edit for the firewire power conservation hack. I have made progress however am struggling to successfully compile the DSDT. I have received the "device SB.PCI0.PCIB.FRWR" object does not exist error. I believe it to have something to do with the FRWR _ADR. I am struggling to identify the the FRWR address (_ADR I assume) and how to successfully point the DSDT edit towards the right board controllers/components. I am unsure which section of the DSDT I must add the Device thread to. The majority of the hack code is provided by the DSDT editor, however there are parts I am unsure about. I have been through so many broken threads where the subject is either dropped or loosely documented for those that need that extra bit of help understanding. My primary uses for this machine are pro audio, graphics, and video. Hence my need for firewire. The system runs great otherwise and I really feel that this part of smoothing out the final 5% of the system. I have listed below hardware and software details. Hardware Specification: ​Gigabyte z68x UD7-B3 The board has a built in T.I. TSB43AB23 Firewire controller BIOS F10 i7 3770K EVGA GTX 760 2gb 16gb 1600MHz RAM Focusrite Saffire Pro Audio Interface OS X 10.8.5 Console Entries: FireWire runtime power conservation disabled.

  3. Hello everyone, I managed to install Mavericks onto my system. The problem is that it can only boot in safe mode, the audio is not working and the graphics are "flickery" when something is moving on the screen. Is there a way to fix these issues? Or can someone help me configure a DSDT? Here are my specs of the hackintosh : - Intel i5-3570K - nvidia GTX650 - 8 gb ddr3 ram - 60 gb SSD Thanks everyone!
  4. Hello, good people! I just successfully installed 10.8.3 on a i7-2600k/Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3 (BIOS v. 10, "Touch BIOS") using a USB 3 external HDD and everything works just fine, except for one annoying thing: this computer have also Windows 7, installed on a RAID array using two SSD disks, and when i try to boot it from Chameleon, i get a "no bootmngr" message. I have to resort to hit F12 and change the boot order to access Windows. How do i solve this? RAID is not a realm where i really feel comfortable. Another question, albeit related to the first: if i clone the OSX installation from the external HDD to an internal one, will it be able to boot, despite SATA mode being set as RAID? Or OSX and Windows RAID arrays cannot share the same space? t! All the besr
  5. ASRock Fatal1ty Z68 Professional Gen3 SSD 120GB Corsair SATA 2.5", Force 3 Series Corsair 8GB (KIT) DDR3 VENGEANCE 1,5V CL9 RED ATI HD4850 RADEON 1024MB I've been trying for days to find the right version to install on my PC but failed. Therefore I'm turning here to find help with it. I'd really appreciate exact links to specific .isos or download that you know from experience works with the hardware I've attached. The latet try was the iPC 10.5.6 iso which froze in the installation at this part: "USBF: 0,454 Attempting to get EHCI Controller from BIOS USBF 0.454 Attempting to get EHCI Controller from BIOS USBF 0.454 USBLEGCTLSTS value c0082007 USBF 0.454 Found USBLEGSUP_ID - value 0x10001 - writing OSOwned USBF 0.566 acquireOSOwnership done - value 0x1000001 USBF 0.579 USBLETCTLSTS value c0082007 " I also tried the Hazard 10.6.6 version and the problem with this one was that first of all the Apple logo appeared and it starte loading, but after a while the no symbol (the red ring with a line diagonally through it) appeared over the apple logo and it froze there. Help is really appreciated! Regards (I'm sorry if I've posted this in the wrong category or something, I'm new to this forum and new to the hackingtosh thing)

    ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 DSDT Help

    Okay guys, I've had much success in getting my Hackintosh to work thanks to all the work here and on Tonymacx86. However there is one thing I cannot get to work no matter what I do is sleep, and I've tried everything I know to do. I've been following this topic to get it done but it seems to be for other iterations of the ASRock Z68 chipset series and sadly not the Extreme3 Gen3. This is a great board and I know plenty of people who have it due to the price / features. At any rate, components: GPU: nVidia 550 Ti 1.5gb (Works great, fully supported now) CPU: Intel Core i5 2500 (no K, I kinda regret it, but I was on a budget) Mobo: ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 Bios Rev. 1.30 I'm using the latest Chimera bootloader, 1.9. Going to sleep works fine, and it stays asleep, waking up is the problem. Since the update to Chimera 1.9 it'll actually takes me back to the desktop upon waking but it freezes immediately. probing syslog via "syslog | grep -i "Wake reason"" gives wake reason: eusb. Uploading my DSDT Any ideas guys? I truly appreciate all the help I've received through this forum! dsdt.dsl.zip
  7. Hey everybody - The idea for this post is to try to clearly document the process of my new first built-from-scratch Hack Pro, so that others might benefit. I've been reading insanelymac, tonymacx86, myHack, ox86.net, etc, etc., but sticking at various points, and still need help. THE SPECS: CoolerMaster HAF 932 case AsRock Z68 Extreme7 Gen3 motherboard Intel I7-2600K CPU @ 3.4Ghz (plan to O/C to 4.6Ghz) CoolerMaster Hyper 212 CPU cooler G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (2133 O/C) Lightscribe DVD burner 24x Radeon HD 6870 2GB Eyefinity 6 graphics card (with 6 minidisplayport outputs) CoolerMaster SilentPro 700W power supply Dell u2410m monitors (3 so far, 6 possible) 24" IPS 16:10 1920x1200 resolution Additional info: Intel I7-2600K: Has Intel HD Graphics 3000; SSE up to 4.2 Asrock Z68 board: SATA: (4) SATA 3 at 3Gb/s and (6) SATA 3 at 6Gb/s: 2 are controlled by Intel Z68 chipset, 4 by Asmedia 1061 (of which 2 are shared with the eSata port). I've connected the SSD to one of the 6Gb/s by Z68.

Assembled machine. Newegg's build videos (link: http://www.newegg.co...014&PID=3266097 ) extremely helpful. POST beep first time. Nice. 2. [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]: First tried [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] by tonymacx86, which my brotherinlaw put on his Asus slate and got working first time. Not so easy on this build. Got to installer once, but it never completed. On [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] page, it suggested entering boot loader flags. After a few hours, figured out that all that is needed on the Chimera boot loader screen is to hit any key, and it will open the prompt. So tried -x -v -s "GraphicsEnabler=No" as suggested possibilities on the [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] page, and got to the point where it gives error message "Waiting on root disk". I dug around and have tried "rd=disk0s3" to try and indicate where to install Lion (the SSD with the EFI partition, the Windows 7 partition, and the 3rd partition waiting for Lion). Is that right? Or should I point it to the USB? Not sure what the rd= flag is asking... Anyways, one of the rd= combinations I tried (aargh, I didn't document which one) then says that the files are READ only, and that to write, I need to type in the commands "fsck -fy" and "sbin/mount -uw" . I tried that, but it just gets to same point and then screen goes black, still not reaching installer even after hours of letting it run. Stuck at this point with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]. 3. WINDOWS 7: Wondered if having a working build (with Windows) would help. Installed Windows7 and updated all drivers and Windows Updates. Everything working well on Windows side. Wow this is a fast machine - boots in about 5 seconds! Used DiskManagement to partition the SSD in preparation for OSX. Now have the EFI (System) Partiton, the Windows 7 Partition, and the unused partition waiting for Lion. 4. [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url], part2: Back to trying [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]. No changes from last attempts - see step 2. Windows still runs fine, by the way. 5. MYHACK: Decided to try myHack. Also a nice application with nice GUI. Tried a verbose boot (-v) at boot loader screen, but after loading the kext files (learning that those are similar to drivers or dll files in Windows), it goes to black screen with a white bar half way across the top. Tried a verbose safe boot (-v -x) and this time it gets farther, but then gets to same error message: "Waiting for boot volume with UUID 1AF86C55-A6A1-3A81-BIFC-72842DD14EEA", then pauses, then "Waiting on <dict ID="0"><key>IOProviderClass</key><string ID+"1">IOResources</string><key>IOResourceMatch</key><string ID="2">boot-uuid-medida</string></dict>, then pauses, then "Still waiting for root device" which repeats endlessly until reset. Time to try the "rd=" command again, I guess. At boot loader screen, typed in "-v -x rd=disk0s3" and variations such as rd=disk0, rd=disk0s1, rd=disk0s2, etc, but never gets beyond the "Still waiting for root device" error. I should also mention that the fakesmc plugins and nullcpupowermanagement kext all seem to be indicating that they are installed successfully. 6. MALDON'S STICK METHOD. Will probably try Maldon's stick method here on insanelymac next.... But at this point, since both other methods have given same error about "Still waiting for root disk", I'm thinking that I need to get past that to get to the installer. So for now, will try showing you all the error screen (jpg attached). I'm pretty sure this is an easy fix, if I knew what I was doing. These links: http://apple2pc.blog...oot-device.html and http://books.google....%20s%3D&f=false have explanations that are fairly good, but if I need to point back to the USB drive to boot, I don't know how. The SSD is in the 0 position, according to BIOS. Please HELP if you can. Trying to make this a post that will be beneficial to others. Thanks in advance!
  8. So I got my SSD in this morning, it's an agility 3 SATA 3 240gb, It gets recongized in the system no probelm I even got trim to work by using the trim enabler and it's showing 6gbit link in system profiler.. I'm getting roughly about 11 seconds to boot up which is better than my hard disk but how is that compared to SATA 2? The reason I'm asking if because I ran a few benchmarks and I will let the screenshot speak for it self One is reporting SATA 2 results the other SATA 3... which one is it? How I find out if it's using sata 3 for sure since I know sata 3 is backwards compatable so it might be using 2? Thanks,
