If you just want a simple solution to your audio, install voodoohda (unless, of course, if my assumption is wrong that you haven't tried it yet)

Aside from dates, this has been what my x3 setup has been with 10.6.7. Never went up to 10.6.8, would also give me massive kernel panics.

 

Specs are listed below

Running on Iatkos with legacy 10.6.7 kernel. Older than more recent versions, but this one has never failed me! Really only thing I has set is no DSDT, but thankfully I didn't have anything that depended on one. 

 

Monday though I'll be getting my new rig I want to test Mavericks out on, before I throw Windows on it.

Amd 6800k FM2

CPU: AMD A8-5600K APU

Mobo: FM2-A75MA-P33

RAM: 8GB DDR3 1333 MHz (Mavericks shows only 800 MHz)

GPU: Radeon HD4850 (using QE_CI Exotic patch for OS X Mavericks_GM)

Ethernet: Realtek  RTL8111/8168B (Lnx2Mac's RealtekRTL81xx v0.0.90)

Sound: ALC887 (VoodooHDA.kext v2.8.4)

Kernel: root:xnu-2422.1.72_bronya_rc8/BUILD/obj/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64

extra boot flags: npci=0x2000 GraphicsEnabler=Yes

some notes:

  • no pink icons or problems with clock;
  • audio works with VooDooHDA, but as soon as i try to load >2 web pages at the same time, have opened >2 youtube videos or in any other way put a bit more load on my Hackintosh then i have a crackling sound;
  • AppStore works like a charm using the method posted somewhere here in this forum;
  • without a standalone GPU, my integrated APU could handle FullHD resolution desktop without a problem (and without extra flags), even Quicktime played some 720p and 1080p files;
  • so far Mavericks on AMD is completely ready for everyday use - no crashes and at the end of the day system doesn't feel slower (unlike Windows).

I have the same CPU but I get no luck doing what you've said :( my chipset is the AMD 970 if that helps.

 

Hi ... I am new to this forum, and also have the same CPU... "AMD FX 8350 Eight Core CPU (turbo 4.2Ghz)"

... I also have an ASUS motherboard "Asus M5A78L-M USB3", and I am concerned about my future with this configuration.

 

It seems there are problems with running a modern OSX on a PC with AMD Processors.  

I recently purchased my PC, and have not tried to run OSX on it - yet!

... I am now wondering whether it might not be a bad idea to exchange my processors for Intel. I would like to be able to set up the OSX and then use my machine as a Mac without ongoing problems (as I have minimal hardware knowledge)... what I really need to know right now, is  "Is this an unrealistic dream?"

 

 

... Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Thanks for replying, and so quickly, 

Please can you elaborate? ... Do you mean 'use an Intel processor' to use OSX successfully?

yes, with minimum core2duo and more to reach Maveriks   ;)

 

Thank you gils83,

 

Do you think there's anything else I should know regarding hardware - other than the processors?

 

My spec:

 

Case : Vantage Blue Midi Tower Case + 4 120mm Fans

Power Supply : 500 Watt With Power Cable Supplied

Motherboard : Asus M5A78L-M USB3 <- Will this work?

CPU : AMD FX 8350 Eight Core CPU (turbo 4.2Ghz) <- Can change to Intel

Hard Drive : 2tb Sata Hard Drive

Memory : 16gb DDR3 1600mhz Corsair Vengeance Memory

Graphics Card : Onboard Integrated (DVI / VGA) <- Part of the ASUS motherboard. No separate graphics card

Optical Drive : 24x Dual Layer DVD Writer

Connections : 6 x USB 2.0 / 2 x USB 3.0 / LAN / Sound

 

Thank you :)

graphics card PCIE ? 

 

Hi, looking up the spec of my motherboard (which has the built-in / integrated graphics card), here : https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/M5A78LMUSB3/#specifications

the Expansion slots are described as follows:

1 x PCIe x16 

1 x PCIe x1 

2 x PCI

 

However I have recently read on another forum about Hackintoshes, that my ASUS motherboard will only support AMD processors, and not Intel... so, if this is correct, I assume that I will have to change both my Processors and my Motherboard.  Do you concur?

Why not just install OS X on your AMD? That's the entire purpose of this thread and AMD development forum.

I would like to... but I am being advised against it.

 

I would like to be able to use the hardware I've got, but I have no idea if - by choosing this path, I'll be forever trying to run OSX while constantly dealing with bugs and fixes. 

 

I appreciate that I'll have to go thru a potentially complicated process to set up OSX, but once I've got it set up - I just want it to work smoothly. 

Some people posting here seem to describe problems with the OSX functionality.

 

Thanks :)

Lion and Mountain Lion are pretty damn usable. Mavericks is also very usable. You're more than welcome to ask questions, and we'll answer to the best of our ability.

 

feel free to send a tip our way if it ends up working for you :-)

I guess I could give it a try. 

I'd just need to install a spare HardDrive to install OSX onto. So I can keep my PC Harddrive with my Windows 7 and files.

... It looks like I'd need to buy a version of OSX, as Mavericks requires the user to already have a version of OSX at least 10.6.8 (unless I've got that wrong).

 

Also, there's the matter of my integrated Graphics card within my ASUS motherboard. 

... Would I need to add a stand-alone graphics card?

 

If I removed my harddrive and put in another one, and tried to install OSX... could trying this mess up any of my hardware?

1. This is the best way buy yourself an external SATA HDD, thus remains your NTFS HDD for Windows clean.

 

 2, Be sure to look if you can find someone in your circle of acquaintances who has an original MAc or a Hackintosh. then you can create and configure within an hour an USB flash drive for your Hackintosh.

 

3.  you do not have to worry about at the moment the internal graphics card,

 

4. No, you should not to do. Then you lose all data. there are fundamentally different formats. OSX = HFS+ and  Windows = NTFS.  As I described above, it is better you organize yourself an external SATA HDD

 

5. you can check your hardware compatibility the SystemInfo app for Windows then uploade the Photo here

Thank you. I will try an external SATA. I think I might be able to get one out of an old Mac G5. 
I assume that I would use this as an external drive...

Do I use the BIOS load up options (when the computer starts) - to install OSX onto this external drive? ... is this how it starts ...
 

 

@Sinetek
Yes of course, I'll thank anyone who helps me - with pleasure :)
