EDIT: Sorry my camera sucks


Alright just so there is more than 1 up for the month.


So here is the low down on the system, I tried doing a budget build for a gaming system and never thought I would be running mac on it or specs might be different.


AMD FX-4100 BE Oc'd to 4.2 GHZ

Biostar TA990FXE MB with 990 NB and 950 SB.

8BG Corsair Vengenace DDR3 1333MHZ (supposed to be 1600 MHZ but Windoze likes to glitch when I run it that fast)

ASUS ATI Radeon HD 6770

650W PSU


1.5TB WD Caviar black 6GB/S (windows 7, Ubuntu 11.10, and Data)

250GB Seagate 6GB/S (windows 8, just for {censored} and giggles)

200GB Samsung 3Gb/s (OS X 10.6.4, non working OS X 10.6.8)

Cheapass DVD Burner

BiFentix 140mm Red Led fan x 5

BiFentix 120mm Red Led fax x 2

uh I don't think I'm leaving anything out, maybe....


Here are some pics of the Evil Hackintosh:

Now I'm gonna try going to lion and see if it works....


I'll keep you posted, and I'll try to get new pics soon with the evil apple sticker that PunkNugget hooked it up with. Thanks again Punk.

Not only an AMD, but Biostar as well... good use of the budget components to make a nice hackintosh!

    • @MegaCookie   ok, I have no solution for that Trial 7 good for the release?
      Is this codec good enough for you?
    • @onejay09  - thanks again for your help and advice.  I tried various combinations of Info.plist mods (Adding a new Machine entry with my Board ID and GFX0, adding GFX0 to the MacBookPro6,1 Machine entry and adding a Vendor/Device entry to the Board ID and MacBookPro6,1 Machine entries. I thought these might make a difference, but after comparing GPU temps and frequencies to those reported in Windows 7, I'm not seeing any difference.  It appears as though AGPM is natively detecting and handling power management of the NVidia Quadro NVS 140m without any Info.plist mods.   Thanks again.
    • My rig is not booting without the "XCPM bootstrap patch" and "xcpm_program_msrs (c) Pike R. Alpha" patch. Already tested that.  Booting without the TSCAdjustReset.kex is working great and booth sleep and wake is working. The new bios 0603 has an updated microcode and that might be the reason  for the fact that everything is working as it should without the kext.
    • Hello folks,   I may be a privileged user since i own a real mac aka a MBPro 15" mid 2012 runing fine HS... So i wanted to try a personal tip: I hooked my Sandisk 100 GB USB SSD to the real Mac and performed a clean install of High Sierra on it. Then i installed the latest CLOVER on this USB disk and copied the Urashimataro previously provided EFI partition. Then i pluggued this USB to my Xiaomi laptop i5 and tried to boot from this USB SSD. INCREDIBLY BUT TRUE: YES it worked fine. ;-)) Of course i also removed the serials to put mine previously blessed on Sierra...   Happy to share this new tip that lets me boot again my Xiaomi laptop on MacOs, and proud for my own personal solution, since i couldn't retrieve here any workable solution and it drove me crazy and nuts...   Enjoy!
