I have installed this Kernel in my system, but I am not able to install the current Nvidia web drivers.

The built in nForce Ethernet is recognized as a Dial-up Modem. Built-in Serial Port (1)

The GPU is GeForce 8300 (built in motherboard)

Is reported on the system as:

Bus: PCI

Vendor Nvidia (0x10de)

Device ID: 0x0848

Revision ID 0x00a2

 

The system boots with the following flag npci=0x3000  (that is all is need it)

AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual Core Processor 6400+

 

Are this issues related to the Kernel been already patch or do I have to do something?

 

Thanks for any help!

Yes I boot with that also nvda_drv=1 GraphicsEnabled=Yes, when I said that the only thing need it to boot is npci=0x3000 is to get it started, which is amazing!

I used all kind of flags combination, I am able to install the driver it allows me and it loads but it goes into a black screen.

The same issue with the built in Ethernet is recognized as a dial-up modem.

I have been trying this since the new kernel was posted and have done others things. But if the Kernel is patch in a certain way then is already loaded that way. I wanted to know if this is the way it should be or there are things I am not doing properly or my AMD system is not supported.

 

Thanks for all the help!

it may well be that I have you not understood correctly, your system is working or not?

 

Booting with: npci=0x.... is at AMD CPU mandatory because otherwise the system stuck on "PCI Configuration Begin" everything else is optional, but it also has implications for the respective function, to be the addressed.

Yes my system is working and the Kernel also works in VirtualBox.

The problem is with the Nvidia Graphics driver. I can not install or load any Kext for it.

I am using the Display with the basic Vram 6 MB, which is not stable and the screen does not refresh properly.

Also the built in Ethernet is reconized as a modem and I have the Flag enable for the built in Ethernet.

I just took a quick look at it, I have not done anything with DSDT/SSDT Injection, but i am going to follow all the steps and I will apply it later on today, will reply back with the results!

Thanks a million!

:thumbsup_anim:

It may also be possible that there is another alternative, such as patching the graphics driver with vendor ID and device ID ... and Efi-String and rom-file

This is due to your OS X Installer, something went wrong in the preparation of the USB Stick.

Create the installer by using Disk Utility, and avoid any kind of tonytools or what else, the promise of salvation! and later cause problems, only clean install, then os x start very well ^_^

 

 

Edit:

 

** If you have enough time, then you can go back several pages, then you will see, that I had similar boot problems.

After created an new USB installer, then I could install Yosemite.

 

Eventually I managed to install 10.10.5. After installation I copied the kernel from the USB to the HDD. But for some reason I was not able to boot the HDD where Yosemite was installed. I got an immediate reboot (clover could not find kernel?). Fortunate I was able to boot my 10.10.1 installation and then I installed the kexts I needed to the 10.10.5 partition and I recopied the kernel was well. Now I was able to boot the HDD and finish the installation of 10.10.5! 

 

I am happy with the result but I needed another installation to make it work. Is there a way to make it work without the need of an extra installation?

After many hours of troubleshooting I got lucky. I found this file http://www.hackintoshosx.com/files/download/1322-nvenabler/

Decided to give it a tried and it works, it recognized the 512 VRAM of the GPU. Is a patch Kext for a lot of graphics cards and still works in 10.10.5 !

I did tried the DSDT, I did not have any luck with  DSDT Editor it did not work for me. I had to do it with MaciASL, but I end up with a fake card in the system. The way I understand how all this works is, DSDT can be use to add a device that the systems does not recognized because the Bios settings are not compatible. When the DSDT is change it allows the OS to find the device. The pacthing of the Kext works when the OS find the device but it does not recognized what kind of drivers to load for it, then by inserting the device ID the OS loads the driver. In my case the Ethernet card is not recognized by the OS, I will have to tweak the DSDT somehow and for the GPU, the Nvidia Web drivers needs to be patch with the card ID. But I am finding out is that this Kernel jumped ahead into the future and most of the tweaks are not available for 10.10.5. If there is an updated guide to patch Kext for Nvidia using tools for 10.10.5, please let me know!

Thank you..! :)

Great news for you but still, I don't understand why you want/need to use webdrivers ?

 

They're not needed for a built-in GeForce 8300, even for dicrete cards 8xxx…

 

Anyway, again glad it did the trick for you… I'm just curious :P.

 

BTW, you should add your specs in sig and bootloader used too ;).

There are some issues with the graphics, it is better now but sometimes the desktop does not refresh propertly. I am thinking that by using the current web drivers it should improve as the system will be more up to date. I am working on getting the Ethernet Card to work. There is a lot of information out there but is not organized and not updated..!

All of this is been tested on:

AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual Core Processor 6400+

Asus M3N78 PRO

8 GB 800 MHz DDr2 SDRAM

GeForce 8300

I'm not with clover bootloader familiar, but the kernel must be installed in to folder: /System/Library/Kernels/  
If the folder with the AMD kernel has not been installed, so create the folder and add the AMD kernel.

(or put the kernel into /Kext/10.10/ ) ? ---> I honestly do not know. :( .

Hello!

 

I spent the last three days with installing, googling, but I can't deal with this any more. I need some help.

 

My build:

- AMD FX-8350

- KINGSTON 2x8GB

- GA-990FXA-UD5

- SAPPHIRE RADEON HD 7950 3GB

- SAMSUNG SSD 840 Series

 

I successfully installed Hackintosh on my PC (downloaded from AppStore)

OSX version: Yosemite 10.10.5

Boot loader: Chimera

Kernel: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/461-amd-kernel-yosemite-10105-sseplus/

 

- installed this because the spinning wheel of death: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/354-amd-replace-kext-for-yosemite/

- patched AMDRadeonX4000 cail_properties

- patched AMD7000Controller - Futomaki framebuffer, this method: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/303186-how-to-modification-of-amd-fb-clover-injection/- binary patch instead of clover - didn't help... same as before...

- installed ACL889 audio: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/176-experimental-6-channel-applehda-for-alc889/with HDAEnabler

- installed RTL8111 ethernet: https://github.com/Mieze/RTL8111_driver_for_OS_X

- installed USB3.0: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/150-patched-appleusbxhci/

- installed FakeSMC

- enabled TRIM

 

My system is up and running, BUT only two of my three monitors are working. I spent the last 3 days debugging this issue, but I couldn't find a solution for that. The system recognises all three, but one of them (random) is black all the time (not blinking, black). I know there is a sleep/wake fix for that, but If I sleep my system, can't wake it again. More specifically it wakes up, but no usb, no ethernet, only the three frozen desktop. It hangs. I have to hard-reset all the time.

 

Could somebody please help me? I don't know how to fix the sleep/wake issue, but now my system is pretty much useless without the third monitor and/or the sleep.

 

Thank you!

 

Can someone help me?

Edit:

otherwise, write a message to rampagedev and ask him, if he can describe you an approach to solving the problem.

I do not know how this information will help you further.

Shaneee i added my system specs ( forgot sorry :) )

 

Ok. Try booting with -x -f -v kext-dev-mode=1 GraphicsEnabler=Yes or =No

 

You should be able to install like that but to get it working after you may need a DSDT patch to work which can be found here, http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/308652-r9-280x-toxic-3gb/?do=findComment&comment=2180452
