[AMD] 10.7.3 Guide - Experimental Only

Recommended Posts

Did you install Chameleon on top of the Retail or iATKOS L2 installation? If there's no Chameleon there's something wrong.

 

No, I mean while installing SL to install Lion.

The install CD boots up, and when I go into Disk Utility and try to partition/erase the drive, it says Can't mount and then when I reboot, that happens.

I've a question, but there is a solution ( or in developements ) for running lion in 64 bit mode .

I've turion rm-74 x2 64bit ss2 .

Or there isn't hope ???

 

EDIT :

 

 

Can anyone send me (mp) a finder.app from dp2 ?? please

Hi!

I've a problem with the Second Method:

OSinstall.mpkg doesn't work, It say at least a core2duo, i3 ecc, is necessary.

I've hazard 10.6.2 installed, and "about my mac" is "macpro5,1".

 

 

My pc configuration is:

 

cpu 1090t

mobo shaphire am3rs790g

gpu gfx460

4gb of ram.

You could try to Edit your smbios.plist with Chameleon Wizard. Or just set the smbios to defaults.

But the error is that don't work some app !??

Because Now i m in 10.7.2 and textedit iTunes software update don't work !! They don't start...

Is it a kernel bug ???

Create a Dynamic Disk of 450 GB on the hard drive and use the vdi.

I'm not sure, don't bet on 64 bit mode yet.

You need to use iATKOS L2 or you will get error installing. You need a intel processer to install, you can't fake this with SMBIOS, it uses a very specific checker that can't be bypassed.

 

You could try to Edit your smbios.plist with Chameleon Wizard. Or just set the smbios to defaults.

 

Does not work, changing SMBIOS is appearance only to About This Mac. Only thing useful is the serial number, everything else is just for showing off, sometimes it can crash your computer, but pick a similar device.

 

But the error is that don't work some app !??

Because Now i m in 10.7.2 and textedit iTunes software update don't work !! They don't start...

It works, make sure you turn it on and open software update straight away. Apps stop after 10 minutes, kernel bug, read FAQ in 1st post.

Try making a new user account(administrator),log out,login to the new one and test.Trash the old one if everything is fine.

the second method says:

"Using your existing AMD Machine running Snow Leopard".

This is a guide to install on Amd, what's the point of "

You need a intel processer to install"?

I can't give you much information but I would look here, I've done it before:

http://www.sysprobs.com/access-physical-disk-virtualbox-desktop-virtualization-software

 

Make sure you follow correctly, and that when you open and attach the file it creates, you run it in administration mode.

 

the second method says:

"Using your existing AMD Machine running Snow Leopard".

Because it's a guide to install AMD Lion. There's no way to install it you use iATKOS L2 on existing Snow Leopard or another machine with intel Lion/Snow Leopard or real mac. Use Method 3.

in VirtualBox i could run Lion ,, but when i tried to dual boot Snow/Lion then alot troubles to boot ,, first sleep, then pci begin ,, after that got KP about FAKESMC 3.1 all solved

then real troubles wait for root device , or dsmos has arrived ,,,

 

 

UPDATE:

 

well now boot , very very slow boot after dsmos has arrived and alot failed kexts ,, but then boot either in bluescreen or background of iatkos , and i hear sound ""about voice speech or something ,and press back to know about it ,,,, ""

i Used virtualBox, but i think is same as VMware,,

prepare some partition to install Lion in it

 

* download iatkos l2 and then run it in ur Vmware , then ""

ShowAllFiles "" in ur Snow Leopard,

*

Open

iatkos l2, and then go to ""

System/Installation/Packages/OSInstall.mkpg " and open the file.

* then install Lion and you can customize the install, and make sure select the correct Installation Hard drive/partition

when installation then do STEPS in tutorial in here of

Devout

 

is easy to run in VirtualBox,

goodluck

Confirmed working with AMD Athlon II X2 250 and motherboard ECS Elitegroup A780LM-M2! Installed with method 2 using v4; thanks very much indeed for the tutorial.

 

One issue: it boots only when iATKOS L2 is in and set as first boot device, or else the computer shuts down square. Strange and annoying, like some malfunction with chameleon, which i tried to reinstall by the way, to no avail. I think the instaled O.S. uses to boot loader of iATKOS DVD to bypass this error. In fact, the problem was already there in my Snow Leopard, meaning that i made the same mistake twice, but in Snow Leo i was managing to overcome the problem simply by booting in single user mode and typing "mount -uw /" and "exit". It worked, i don't know why, but it was impossible to do with my Lion system, who shuts down my computer whatever flag i use, unless iATKOS is running as first boot device.

 

At first, when i discovered how to pass through the shutdown problem using the iATKOS dvd, the boot hanged anyway at "

AppleUSBOHCI::CheckSleepCapability - OHCI Controller will be unloaded across sleep

" after a sucessful first boot, and continuing doing so, although i of course had changed to AHCI in my BIOS and had used recomended boot flags, and tried single user too. The solution for it? Using the bootflags "-legacy -s". After this, i had another difficulty when i tried to migrate my settings from my Snow Leo HD, resulting in a "DSMOS has arrived" freeze. i had to reinstall it, and without doing the migration tool, everything worked fine. My ralink was recognized with the correct driver, the same for my maudio and soundblaster soundcards. My graphic card, a nVIDIA GeForce G210, needed only graphics mode and "GraphicsEnabler" in boot.plist to work fine, with full resolution and QE/CI.

 

Waiting for a 64-bit kernel!

 

P.S.: of course, i experienced the same kernel-related bugs as everybody else, link finder problems - i used DP2 to partially fix this - and being unable to execute apple "core" apps after a certain amount of time. Not a big deal for me, since these apps are not among those i prefer. Well, except maybe for the AppStore, which could be handy with it worked. Second, my network always takes a certain time to start working. An issue between OsX and ralink drivers, i suppose, since it happened with Snow Leo too.

Nope not for 10.7.2/10.7.3, I'm not sure about 10.7.4 because I'm running Mountain Lion under Intel now.

Yepp it's ralink drivers, I'm not sure about the other problems though, but it does freeze boot sometimes.

So I installed on my AMD x6 system, and I got SL (10.6) running then mounted and installed iAtkos L2. The install failed (towards the end), but I still added kernel and installed chameleon. But now the kexts load, but then the PC reboots. Any ideas? GTX 560 ti, 16GB ram, ASUS M4A87TD EVO.

 

 

Right before it reboots:

 

[Warning] /extra/dsdt.aml not found

USING PCI-ROOT_UID value:0

ACPI Table not found DSDT.aml

 

Also there is some stuff about SMBIOS is there

      Hello there!
       
      TL:DR; I built a Hackintosh system using the OpenCore Vanilla Desktop Guide (running Catalina 10.15.4) and I use an AMD Ryzen 1600 CPU and Radeon RX 5700 XT GPU. All works well except my displays are very blurry and it feels like I’ll get a headache if I try to look at the screen for very long. The picture quality is noticeably worse than Windows or Linux. What can I do to fix it?
       
      --
       
      Let me start off by saying that this is my first hackintosh build. I based my build on the Opencore Vanilla Desktop Guide at https://khronokernel-2.gitbook.io/opencore-vanilla-desktop-guide/. I’m running macOS Catalina 10.15.4.
       
      So I finished installing macOS after slowly and carefully taking about 8-10 hours to go through the guide yesterday and make sure I did everything properly. It paid off - it has been solid as a rock. However, there is one problem that is currently bugging me to no end - my displays are very blurry. This seems to be independent of any application or display resolution. My dock icons are blurry, the system text is blurry, app text is blurry (like in Slack, Safari, Notes, etc). This does not occur in Linux or Windows when using the same screens. 
       
      Also, as a test, I hooked up my girlfriend’s MacBook Pro to the same two screens, and the monitors are crystal clear again, just like they usually are in Windows. This leads me to think that my EFI may be configured improperly or my system may be missing some software or a kext that enables the displays to show a sharp image. I attached my EFI folder and my config.plist file for reference. 
       
      EFI setup:
      ACPI: SSDT-EC-USBX-AMD.aml Drivers: ApfsDriverLoader.efi OpenRuntime.efi VBoxHfs.efi Kexts: AppleALC.kext AppleMCEReporterDisabler.kext Lilu.kext RealtekRTL8111.kext VirtualSMC.kext WhateverGreen.kext (version 1.3.8) My boot args are: "npci=0x2000 agdpmod=pikera keepsyms=1 debug=0x100 alcid=1"  
      System specs:
      Ryzen 5 1600, no overclock or anything special Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB RAM, 32GB total (2x16GB DDR4 dimms running at 2400MHz) XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT RAW II 8GB GPU (this is listed as a PCIe 4.0 GPU, could that cause issues since my motherboard is PCIe 3.0 only? Works great in Windows/Linux) ASUS Prime B350M-A motherboard Samsung PM961 256GB NVMe SSD  
      My monitors:
      Samsung U32J59x (32” @ 3840x2160) ASUS MX279 (27” @ 1920x1080) The blurry issue also occurs when I plug directly into my 58" Samsung 4K TV.  
      I’ve already tried these steps:
      Adjusting monitor “sharpness” settings, totally unbearable at “0” but still looks pretty bad even at “100” Trying a bunch of different resolutions in the “Display” preferences. On the 4k monitor, the only one that looks any better is the 1920x1080p option, but then I have far too little screen space left. Using SwitchResX, no different than using different resolutions in the regular Display preferences Using subpixel antialiasing in the terminal with no noticeable difference, even through reboots Turning on/off AMD FreeSync on my 4K monitor — if I turn on FreeSync, the display lags and stutters, and quality is not any better. Also tried turning on/off “game mode” but that had no difference. Tried switching DisplayPort version between 1.1 and 1.2 in monitor settings (on 4K monitor) Checking my BIOS settings, such as making sure CSM is off, against the OpenCore guide that I used to make sure everything was correct  
      Does anyone else have some other ideas that could help to correct this issue? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!

      A few days ago I faced a problem - installed ocquirks and it somehow broke my prelinked kernel. System won't boot then, and I spent more than a day restoring from the netatalk  backup to copy working prelinked kernel directory from the backup to the s/l
      So, my question is - how to relink prelinked kernel without that? I found boot args -f UseKernelCache=No but it didn't work. I was able to boot to the recovery, if that can help.

      I have been using clover to install and configuration my Hackintosh High Sierra 10.13.6. It's been a struggle and a pain. Can't restart/shutdown/wake from sleep. Random freezes. When freeze happens mouse works but in loading state. UI and open apps freeze not the mouse. I can make the apps smaller and move them.

      I haven't used any DSDT nor SSDT. Tried 5 or 6 of them from others but sometimes i end up not booting. Could someone explain me do i even need them and why? Do i need DSDT or SSDT or both?

      I'm going to try to install everything OpenCore. The first thing is i can't use a method that needs an internet while installing MacOS cause my ethernet/internet only works when i install MacOS. So i can't use the images i need full installation. Okay i have the full installation for 10.13.6. I need to use a version 10.13.4-6 versions cause application Sketch needs the newer one High Sierra 10.13.4++ version.

      Can you tell me? Can i use same kexts from Clover on OpenCore? Secondly how can i install full USB MacOS installer? (High Sierra 10.13.6 version i have is 7gb i think thats it)
      Is there a version of AMDHigh Sierra version made from the community for 10.13.4++ version?
      If i use the normal 10.13.6 High Sierra should i use this AMD 10.13.6 Kernel when i have installed the MacOS or some other kernel that's better for my system? https://github.com/Shaneee/AMD-High-Sierra-XNU/releases
      Whats the best version of High Sierra to use for Ryzen and Nvidia system?

      Will it be better to use OpenCore?

      I decided to extract the immutablekernel for Catalina 10.15.3.
      I had to add a FAT header but it extracts just fine.
      Thanks to this we have the kernel and kexts for the immutablekernel.
      The info dictionary and lists are also included.
      Needs further study if it contains extras compared to the prelinkedkernel.
      Maybe we can find out what those .im4m files (for example immutablekernel.x589iclydev.im4m) are thanks to this.
       
      Enjoy
