[AMD] 10.7.3 Guide - Experimental Only

210 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The OS installed by following this guide has worked very well. The only thing I cannot get it to do is boot into OS X without typing -legacy -v npci=0x3000 everytime. Is there a way for me to not have to type it EVERYTIME I want to get into the OS then it would be even better!!

 

If I boot into my SL partition and change the boot.plist file by choosing the iAtkos partition, some of the changes work and some of them don't. The first pic shows what my bootplist looks like now. I added the line npci=0x3000 by editing the bootplist in SL then repairing permissions thru disk utility. If I take out the npci=0x2000 line and leave the npci=0x3000 by itself it hangs on bootup. Even though I added the line npci=0x3000 in the bootplist I still have to type the bootflag to get into the OS. If I don't type it the screen looks like the second pic which is some sort of graphics hieroglyphics. If I add the flag legacy=yes to the bootplist by editing thru the SL partition then the system hangs during bootup also. Any and all information/assistance to remedy this situation would be greatly appreciated.

 

Yes, you should repair if you replace the finder.app, always repair when editing system files.

 

And. to answer this question: No you don't need to type that in everytime. In your boot.plist just add these flags in the kernel flag key like this:

 

<key>Kernel Flags</key>

<string>-legacy -v npci=0x3000</string>

 

Hi.

I can Use Method.2 for my PC [ fx4100 + M5A88-V EVO + WD Blue 320G + 5770 + 4G/1333 ] it work.

But bootup very slow and osx mouse pointer move very very slow.

I don't install anything out of Method.2 ->Step 1->Step 2->Step 3->Step 4.

How to fix it .Help me please.

 

I hop you understand . :huh: I'm little in Eng. :(

 

Kernel: v4, v5, v6 and voodoo 9.0.26.

 

It's because QE/CI is disabled, list your graphics card.

Alright, after months, I solved the can't mount problem.

Now, I just need help with 'Waiting for root device'.

I'm using Phoenix Award WorkstationBIOS v6.00 as my BIOS and I can't find anything with AHCI.

(seems like my BIOS changed :P, I used to see the little tabs on the top, now just buttons going down with keyboard)

Change your HDDs SATA mode to AHCI, not IDE. This works every time :P

HELLO , put all off your kext (ata support and more ) in S/L/E do not use E/E for loading kexts , (remove kexts from EXTRA ) , and repair permissions with MYhack with your leopard partition .** also use the last chameleon boot loader , download and install it on your lion partition or more safely in your usb key with chameleon wizard **

Removed all kexts from E/E................downloaded myhack and repaiired permissions ......

 

just wanted to know .....

1. can i repair permissions from disk utility of snow leopard

2. also chameleon 2.1 is already installed in snow leopard.....is it necessary to install in lion partition.

disk utility repair permissions can work , but this is an original apple tool , i think the permissions settings (x----r---w---w......) are only optimized for a real mac , "kext wizard" it's good tool for repair also , YOU MUST create a chameleon boot disk on usb key , if you have internet on your leopard , use the program "chameleon wizard" to install the last boot loader on your HFS journalized formated usb key , i have maked my boot key with this , and it worked , see the iatkos l2 thread (on web ) how to.

 

but if you have cham. r1730 no gui it can boot , i never tested , if it boot no need to install in lion partition

 

for me:

1 : i installed the last chameleon in lion partition

2: i have reinstalled my leopard chameleon on leo partition (more old realease off chameleon but it active full QE/CI with no bugs)

3: i use the usb key with the last chameleon if i want to boot in lion , if i remove it , the system boot direct to SL 10.6.8

DEXTRUCTOR: Since is experimental this kernel I have some unstable applications and other issues. I'll update to 10.7.4 later and post the results.

 

success update to 10.7.4 , i just use the last kernel from rawX86 based on brovozka kernel (9.6 MB) (and replaced the finder with dp2 !!!), almost perfect , the only big problem is for playing flash and streaming movies on web (html5 works better but bugs subsist ) , all web players crashes after 10 seconds when i remove the sound kexts (no sound device) , and it work with very very slow frame rate with sound enabled (i have QE/CI OK) , no flash problems on snow leo 10.6.8

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT: big problem resolved , the streaming is due to bad permissions off a sound settings folder (library/pref/audio)

(this bad permissions make AudioMidisetup.App not responding ... )

 

this is a sound issue !!!!!!! and the problem appear on the video <_< very strange .......BUT FIXED !

Excuse my bad English

 

I see many asking for the error "Still waiting for root device". For me it was just the kernel !!!! No AHCI or else ...

 

This one doesn't work for me "AMD kernel 10.7.4 for all AMD processors" source and dev. Bronzovka aka Dmitrik from forum applelife.ru and cause the Still waiting for root device after many errors at load.

 

I'm on Crosshair V with Phenom X4 955 Black Edition.

 

If you are sure to be with AHCI in Bios try another Kernel, that can be save you time :)

if you install iatkos l2 make sure you have selected your ahci driver in installation customisation , and i think you need to update your system to 10.7.4 if you want to use this kernel with no errors , if you use 10.7.2 or 10.7.3 you may use olders kernels (v4 ..)

Mobo: Dell 0GK1k2, BIOS - v1.13, mfg: MSI

Proc: Phenom II X6 1090T 3.2GHz, BIOS Dell vA06

Graph: PCI ATI Radeon HD 5450, 1GB DDR3

N/W: VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter

RAM: 2GB, DDR3

HDD: Virtual Drive.

 

It works, but not stable. Mouse is sluggish. Straight VGA; DP2 Finder can be a little cranky. Running 4 CPUs for the heck of it. A lot of times will be entering text in a box and the window freezes. If I try to open up a picture, an icon opens up at the bottom and bounces, but clicking on it does nothing to change the state. Other things include the hard drive icon not showing up until DP2 Finder is launched (unlike its presence in SL).

 

Took me probably three days to get this working; required Googling till my fingers were numb. But now I've got a much better feel for what's going on here; blunt force iterating-it-to-death is usually the best way to know the in's and out's of the system.

if you do not see hdd drives in desktop make sure you have checked this in finder preferences menu , if you run lion in a virtualizer system it can be more unstable and lags , prefer a native system install ! good luck , the system work nice for me ( in 32 bits mode off course ...)

Only when I launch DP2, do I see the HD icon; I've tried to remove the regular Finder from the desktop and replace it with DP2, but it won't let me remove or rename it. (Now that I think about it, will that cause a problem?).

 

I dialed it back to 2 processors, and I don't see any change in response.

you can not replace or rename it because it used by the system , if you want to replace the original 64bit finder.app , you may do this from your windows partition with a HFS partition access software , or from an existing leopard partition , it recommended to have a leopard 10.6.X installed if you want to install lion on amd with iatkos l2 method ( you can see and manage your lion partition ) , or you can test to install directly the distribution "OSX INDO" it contain finder DP2 and multiple amd kernels in the insatallation customization ..

Working mostly for me:

 

ASUS M489AGTD PRO/USB

AMD Phenom 965 3.4Hz

nVidia GTX 460

OSX Lion 10.7.4

Kernel: V4.

 

Problems:

Only boots about 1 in 3 times, other times gets stuck at NTFS 3.1 stage.

Audio, ALC892, not working (not recognized using HDA kexts, crackly using Voodoo).

Installer, Skype, etc. won't lauch after some time (xpchelper issue I presume - fixes don't seem to work fully).

Kernel V6 will not boot fully to desktop (grey screen with some black rectangles), but V4 runs fine.

 

Apart from these its running 100% solid, full graphics, full cores, no crashes.

i resolve the boot stuck at ntfs v3.1 with adding -f flag , i boot with -f -v -legacy arch=i386 npci=0x3000

AND I DISABLE XPCHELPER CACHING with a program maked by " jeaton2012 " (google it )

verify in the console if xpchelper disabled , if not , redisable it again , and reboot

 

make sure you have repaired permissions with kext utility or myhack3.1 before rebooting ,

 

if you not able to boot with Kernel v6 in 10.7.4 , change/verify your boot loader and your graphics kexts ( try with -x flag ?)

it can resolve ...... but i am not sure .....good luck !

 

important : before install 10.7.4 direct try install 10.7.2 and verify if you have the same errors .....issues ....

personaly i prefer install 10.7.2 and update to 10.7.4 (just replace finder and kernel , revert iostorage family kext if needed and remodify/reinstall some graphics kexts if you have)

 

AMD IS EXPERIMENTAL , the best way is to have 3 partitions : leopard , lion1 , lion 2 , if you do some errors you can always rescue with another partition ...and you can update and change files easly.........;;

Actaully the xpchelper problems seem to have disapeared.

 

Now have a perfectly running (apart from audio, but I have another usb device) system with uptime of more than 2 days.

 

I had installed 10.7.2 first using method 2 and then updated it to 10.7.4 (and reverting the IOStorageFamily.kext).

 

10.7.2 would not boot without the cpus=1 flag, but 10.7.4 will (but not everytime).

 

So all good :) .

 

Thanks for the tips...

      Radeon RX 580 8 GB graphics card on macOS High Sierra (as of 10.13.6), Mojave and Catalina on the P55-USB3 board: excellent performance with acceleration (Metal) OOB, no need for drivers (kexts), with 3 drawbacks, one has to do with the boot of the operating system (a solution is proposed), another with the number of rear connectors enabled (a solution is proposed) and another that only affects to one phase of the Mojave or Catalina installation (without clear solution for now).

      I have placed the XFX AMD Radeon RX-580 P8DFD6 8GB Triple X Edition GDDR5, 256BIT, DVI + HDMI + 3DP graphics card on a 10 year old motherboard (Gigabyte P55-USB3) in order to update the hackintosh to 10.14 Mojave and 10.15 Catalina because the card that I have used in past years, Nvidia Geforce GTX 750 1GB, has stopped working after 10.13.6 High Sierra since this was the last version for which Nvidia published the alternate web drivers that were necessary for the card to work well with graphic acceleration.

      The new RX 580 card needs considerably more space than the old one although it fits perfectly in an ATX case, and requires an additional power connector. It has 2 big fans that most of the time are stopped, at least in my case. In macOS it works perfectly, even with Metal acceleration, without additional drivers and without extra settings in Clover. But it has drawbacks that I comment below.

      Alterations during startup

      During the boot of the operating system, when the screen goes from the basic driver to the AMD driver, 2 artifacts appear randomly, they are very short in duration (from one to a few seconds):
      Very short flashing white screen that may or may not be accompanied by purple lines The fans runs for a few seconds (the noise is clearly audible). This behavior is solved with the installation of 2 kexts, Lilu and WhateverGreen. Lilu is an extension created by acidantheraand vit9696 among others whose function is to help to patch kexts, processes and libraries during macOS boot. It is accompanied by specific plugins for the task required, for example WhateverGreen that injects necessary patches for certain AMD, Intel and Nvidia graphics cards. It is mandatory to have both extensions together, one of them separately does not correct the problem.
      I have installed Lilu 1.4.4 and WhateverGreen 1.3.9 in the EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other folder of the EFI partition and artifacts have disappeared. Remember that these 2 extensions are not necessary for the card to work properly, if you tolerate those very brief distortions of the screen or the noise of the fans running for a few seconds, you can live without Lilu and WhateverGreen.

      Note: authors recommend that when using Lilu and WhateverGreen with Radeon cards, NO graphic settings have to be added to Clover (Inject ATI, etc.).

      Note: these alterations, especially the brief white screen and less frequently purple lines and fan noise, are also seen in Windows and some real Macs with the same card.

      Alteration during macOS installation

      Boot from USB > Clover menu > Install macOS from Install macOS Catalina > screen works fine
      Boot from USB > Clover menu > Install macOS from MacintoshHD > black screen
      Booting from USB > Clover menu > Boot macOS from MacintoshHD > screen works fine.

      In the first and third stages, screen works fine. In the second stage the screen goes black although the installation continues. The user has nothing to do at this moment so you can leave the PC working until the Clover menu is shown again, the screen is recovered, the initial account options can be configured and you can enter into the newly installed system with correct resolution and acceleration.
      This behavior is not corrected even by placing Lilu and WhateverGreen into the USB device. At least in my case I have not found a solution for it. Yo can install macOS perfectly with that drawback of not seeing how it progresses during the second phase of the installation.

      Only 2 connectors of the 5 available work

      This card has 3 Display Port (DP) ports, 1 HDMI port and 1 DVI port. In my case, only 2 DP work, those that are further from the HDMI connector. It is enough if you use a single monitor or 2 monitors that can be connected by DP. But if you want to have 3 or more connected devices or some of them only have HDMI, it is necessary to enable the 5 connectors or at least 4 of them since the DVI is obsolete and does not allow resolutions as high as DP and HDMI.
      User foxbox has proposed a solution in a thread titled [Solved] Sapphire RX 580 Nitro + SE | black screen on HDMI and DVI. Must inject from Clover a modification to the Orinoco framebuffer (which is used in the RX 580 card) so that the 5 connectors lack a fixedly assigned address and, instead, receive it dynamically. This change is made from the KextsToPatch section of Clover. Read the post from foxbox.
      This has to be accompanied by 3 changes in the Graphics section of Clover: Orinoco in FB Name / Inject ATI / 5 in Video Ports. I have tested this solution in macOS Catalina and it effectively enables the 5 ports of the card but, since I only use 1 monitor, I have removed it and I am with Lilu and WhateverGreen.

      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?

      Mortar Max B450M
      Ryzen 2600x
      Nvidia GTX 1060
