Gateway DX4300-15e & OSx86

2 posts in this topic

Hi Insanely Mac,

I'm making this post as I have lots of difficulty in my attempt to install Mac OS X on my desktop computer. I've installed iDeneb on a laptop before so I have a degree of familiarity with the process.


My desktop computer is what I'm trying to install (any distribution that will work). The specs are:

Gateway DX4300

AMD Phenom II X4 810 - Processor

American Megatrends, Inc. P01-A4, 9/15/09 - BIOS

ATI Radeon HD 4650 - Video Card

AMD High Definition Audio Device - Sound

Realtek RTL8190 802.11n & Belkin Basic Wireless USB Adapter - Wireless Adapter

8.0 GB RAM


The closest I've gotten to an ideal installation was actually done in VirtualBox; what prevents it from being ideal is no sound and no wi-fi. Since I'll be using this for multimedia production, it's important that I have all components working.


Which distribution do you suggest?

Since previous attempts with iatkos v3s2 and other distros resulted in kernel panics or just never brought me to the Welcome to Installatio screen, I'm likely going the Virtualization route. -- Since I do not want to render my computer useless. However, if anyone is sure of a distro/method that would more than likely be successful, I may try my luck.


Thank you all for your help in advance.

      Hi everyone. I installed MacOS High Sierra on my computer 3 months ago, in January. After a long way to get the computer fully working now I'm facing a new problem: imagine I'm working or doing something in my computer and it suddenly freezes and I have to restart it.  There's no reason why the computer restarts by itself...
      Here I also attach my Clover EFI folder in case you need it (it doesn't allow me to attach it so here i give you the link: https://mega.nz/#!92xCiLDZ!WY1F55ZvuP-9WW369EP9KY-3hNLt5sWUgJDxPrbgpPM .
      Thank you in advance.

      Hi guys, i'm trying to help a friend of mine trying to install osx(possibly high sierra) on his pc with the following specs: 
      Amd fx8350 
      Asrock 990fx extreme 3
      8gb of fury Kingston ddr3 ram(2x4)
      Radeon hd 7950
      128gb ssd( crucial m550)
      A couple of hdds I don't remember the brand(maybe a seagate barracuda and a dumb old disk for data)
      We tried to install it using the regular clover+high showers installer but we couldn't get it to reach the installer, then we tried osx-amd(don't know if i can talk about it there, sorry if i can't) and we still couldn't get to the installer.
      Is there a guide i can use to install osx in that machin, i tried to search in the forum but i couldn't find it.

      I am struggling to install Windows 7 64 bit on a new computer. The storage is M2 and it has 8 GB RAM.
      The system is assembled by a company and not much information about the mobo is available.
      I simply want to install windows 7, preferably only... but I could leave an untouched Mac version on a partition if needed.
      Is this something Clover will be able to help me do?
      I have read many guides but a lot of them talk about dual-booting with macOS.
