Help: Hackintosh a Dell customized PC

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


So my PC has the following HW:


Dell XPS 8000 motherboard

Intel Xeon X3460 CPU


EVGA nVidia GeForce 210 512 MB

I think the onboard ethernet is Broadcom


So i know from researching that i have really bad combination of HW's for a Hackintosh, but im trying to make this PC work anyway since otherwise i dont know what to do with it :-)


I use ###### to make an USB with Mountain Lion, update the USB with the following:



AHCI_Extended_Injector.kext (which helps me pass the "no HDD shown while installing even in Disk Utility".


Non-helpful (i do not know if these affect anything but i did put them in:

NVEnabler.kext (trying to make GeForce work)

AppleBCM5701Ethernet.kext (trying to make onboard Broadcom ethernet work)

I added "device-properties" with these string from the OSX86 tool also (trying to make video work)




When booting via USB needed to have these params:




After all i have the HDD ready to boot, but upon booting i have this screen (stalled, of course). Params for this screen was:







Thats all. I've gone this far and currently dont know whats missing. I guess its the Video card but i'm not sure what to do next.


Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
