AMD Processors - nForce 630a without AHCI

25 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have a motherboard (ASUS M4N68TM_LE_V2) which has the nForce 630a chipset (for AMD processors). As is the theme with nForce chipset motherboards, there is no option to select AHCI, only the default IDE mode or RAID, as seen in the following image:

I know that RAID implies AHCI, however, no matter if I am in the default or RAID mode, I still can't get to the Mac OS X Mountain Lion Installer, due to the "Still waiting for root device error".

 

This image shows the error that I see:

The boot flags which I use are: -x -v npci=0x3000

(I use npci=0x3000 in order to get around the [PCI Configuration Begin] error)

 

No matter if I run it using -x or not, it still won't work.

 

I have tried 5/6 different nForce ATA kexts, to no avail, and tried Verdant's Support Pack, which didn't seem work for me either.

 

What would you suggest? What do you think is the problem?

 

Also to note, I have Mac OS X Mountain Lion on a USB drive, using Andy Vandjick's 10.8.2 AMD kernel. I am using Chameleon the bootloader.

 

Thank you.

Look for IM topics dealing with the nForce MCP67 chipset as it is probably fully AHCI compliant and so does not work with the AppleNForceATA.kext.............see here.............:)

Yes

 

Where can I obtain it from? (I apologise for the incomplexity of my questions!)

 

From what I've seen (correct me if I'm wrong), they all show machines that have Mac OS X installed. I can't even get to the installer.

For background info. on "Still waiting for root device" see here.......

 

Your OS X Installer (either USB or DVD) will need to have the appropriate kext in either the /Extra/Extensions and/or /System/Library/Extensions folder that it is booting from to get you to the OS X Installer app Desktop.....

 

If you want to run OS X ML, then you will need a 64bit kext for the 630a chipset. However, the kexts that were referred to in my previous posts relating to OS X Leopard will probably be 32bit only kexts....e.g. see the kexts here......

It's strange because when I use a 64-bit NForce ATA kext, before it gets to "Still Waiting For Root Device", the hard drive and optical drive start (can see via the HDD LED indicator and the optical drive spin sound), but still doesn't work. If I don't use the kext, there is no disk activity etc.

 

It says:

 

IOATAController device blocking bus

For ML, the kext needs to be the appropriate kext for the Southbridge chipset as well as being 64 bit capable.

 

Try installing OS X ML on an external HDD in a USB enclosure if your PC allows USB booting to find out which ATA kexts works for your MOBO, and then use OS X Disk Utility to prepare the internal HDD for installing OS X onto to it via the USB HDD......

I'm going to try this now :)

 

Thank you so much for your support, I highly appreciate it.

Still can't manage to get it working, just stuck on:

 

com.apple.AppleFSCompressionTypeDataless kmod start

com.apple.AppleFSCompressionTypeZlib kmod start

com.apple.AppleFSCompressionTypeDataless load succeeded

com.appple.AppleFSCompressionTypeZlib load succeeded

Still waiting for a root device

 

The USB drive which I installed OS X on worked on another machine (with an AMD chipset), but cannot get it to run on my nForce machine.

 

I guess I'll be purchasing a new motherboard soon in that case.

It all depends on what OS X version you want to run on the nForce AMD PC. If you are happy to stick with Snow Leopard so that you can run the kernel in 32bit mode, while still able to run 64 bit apps, then you have a better chance of finding the correct kext......

 

If you do not wish to give up just yet, to save your time, I recommend that you initially install OS X Leopard using a AMD compatible Install DVD distro such as:

 

LawlessPPC-10.5.4-Phenom-AMD

 

iATKOS 4a AMD

 

Leo4Allv4.1 AMD

 

iPC 10.5.6

 

iDeneb V1.4 10.5.6 etc.

 

to set up two OS X volumes on your HDD and then install Leopard on one of the volumes to figure out exactly what you need to do boot and run OS X Leopard on your system......and then use Leopard to help you install OS X Snow Leopard on your second HDD volume, and so on.........see this AMD Retail Snow Leopard install guide...........as you no doubt know, you will also need patched kernels for installing OS X Lion and Mountain Lion on AMD.....

Sorry for the late response to my thread, just began trying to get it working again!

 

I tried disabling the SATA on the motherboard, and still ran into the same "Still Waiting for Root Device" error, so this leads me to believe that something else is causing the error.

 

Could someone confirm what this actually means?:

 

Waiting on <dict ID="0"><key>IOProviderClass</key><string ID="1">IOResources</string> etc etc.

com.apple.AppleFSCompressionTypeDataless kmod start

com.apple.AppleFSCompressionTypeZlib kmod start

com.apple.AppleFSCompressionTypeDataless load succeeded

com.apple.AppleFSCompressionTypeZlib load succeeded

 

Could this be causing the error?

 

Thanks!

Hi!

 

As I see, you have the same chipset as my motherboard. I will tell you what I did and where I am now.

 

First of all I needed a running Mac system. In BIOS there is no option for AHCI, only IDE or RAID. Only method what was work to me is

Downloaded boot-kabyl-bumby.zip, and booted in to hazard installation dvd with "-v -busratio=11 maxmem=4096". My cpu is AMD Phenom X4 9550 it works on 2200 MHz, the bus speed is 200 MHz, so the multiplier (busratio) is 11. I think the kernel which is on dvd does not recognizes more then 4 GB RAM. So booted in to install and selected:

 

Modbin_Kernel

NVInject

AppleAzaliaAudio

RTL8139_Ethernet

AppleRTC

LegacyAppleRTC

SATA_ATA_Fix

AMD Patch

 

After install finished, I booted up the system and found out, almost nothing works. Only LAN and sound works for me. So I started reading verdant's tutorial. My system does not recognized non USB devices I attached (The solution was to turn off Legacy USB in BIOS. If you turn off this, then USB keyboard and mouse won't work until you get in OS. In Chameleon neither works.) so I managed to use an old internal hard disk. Downloaded the support files in download section. Got the InstallESD.dmg. From "Part B", "3. Preparing the USB flash drive as a Mac bootable device volume" I did everything what is written. In 4. step I get the GeForce kexts and copied where verdant said to copy (I renamed GeForce.kext to GeForce.kext_ORIG and GeForceGA.plugin to GeForceGA.plugin_ORIG because my GTS 450 would boot up only with "-x" and then I do not have LAN nor sound. With this renaming I can boot up without flags but I don't have graphics acceleration YET). in verdant's support files I found "Extra Folder.pkg", installed it on the disk. Copied:

 

AHCIPortInjector.kext

AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext

ApplePS2Controller.kext

ApplePS2Keyboard.kext

ApplePS2Mouse.kext

ATAPortInjector.kext

JMicron36xATA.kext

JMicron36xSATA.kext

OpenHaltRestart.kext

 

to Extra/Extensions/ and:

 

AppleNForceATA.imk64bit.kext

AppleRTC.MLion.Patched.kext

EvOreboot.kext

FakeSMC.kext

nForceLAN.0.64.5.kext

NullCPUPowerManagement.kext

VoodooHDA.kext

 

to System/Library/Extensions/ directory on disk. And did the terminal stuff. The kernel I used is from here. After install I had to boot back to install hard disk. Then copy kexts listed above and kernel on the installed system. Reboot and boot into installed system, then install chameleon.

 

I did not tried to install from usb. Maybe if I add to org.chameleon.Boot.plist wait time would work, but not tried YET. The DVD method don't works for me. I burned 20 different DVD's non works.

 

What is working now:

 

LAN network

Sound (mic doesn't works)

with "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" I can change resolution but no graphics acceleration

USB devices works if Legacy USB is disabled in BIOS (USBBusFix=Yes not works) or booting with "USBLegacyOff=Yes"

sleep wake not works, to be honest I don't like when my machine goes to sleep. I bought my PC to be power on all the time.

DVD-RW rom doesn't works. If I put a DVD in the drive, after 5 minutes says I put a blank DVD in the drive.

 

I'll try to make USB installer

 

Sorry for bad english

Hi!

 

I suggest you ask help in the appropriate subforum: http://www.insanelym...lations-on-amd/

 

Additionally, join IRC at the server chat.osx86.hu, chatroom #legacykernel.

 

Best regards.

 

When everything will work, I will post the steps to your thread "AMD working Builds", how I get it stable on my PC. Before one year I had fully stable system with Mac OS X 10.6.8, but only 32-bit was work because then I had problems with nForceATA kext and 64-bit.

 

My specs was:

Motherboard: MSI K9N Neo V3

CPU: AMD Athlon64 X2 5000+ Brisbane

GPU: MSI Geforce 8600 GT 512MB

RAM: 2GB KIngston 800MHz DDR2

It is hard to find people who have NVIDIA GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a chipset in this community. Maybe if you rename or move the thread "nForce 630a without AHCI" or something we would find more people with same problems and together would find out what will work for our chipsets

Were you able to get everything (or part of) to work? If so, could you please post the steps. I also have the nForce 630a and having great difficulty getting Lion and Mountain Lion to work due to "Waiting for root device" error.

Hello guys! I also have the nForce 630a motherboard and I'm trying to install any Hackintosh distro on my PC. Every time, i got some error(panic, waiting for device...). I tried distors like iAtkos, HAZARD, Modcd but every time i got same result. Error screen. I would be very happy if could some one help me. Thank you in advance. :)

Do the steps in post #14.

 

To recap:

1. Boot with CD from boot-kabyl-bumby.zip image.

2. Swap the CD in step #1 with Hazard's 10.6 DVD with boot flags "-v npci=0x3000 busratio=16 maxmem=4096". Note: busratio depends on your CPU speed & board bus speed. Disk swapping can be tricky. You have to press <enter> at the right places when prompted at the end of step #1 to properly swap DVD.

 

3. Install Hazard OSX and choose the install options mentioned in post #14.

4. After Hazard finishes install and reboot, use the following boot flags: "-v npci=0x3000 busratio=16 maxmem=4096 USBLegacyOff= Yes". Note: You have to install and boot Chameleon or equivalent prior to step #4.

I also have an nForce 630a MOBO (Asrock M4N68T-M), with a AMD Phenom II X4 955 @ 3.2GHz, with 4GB DDR3 and a GeForce 8600GT GPU, and can't even get to the setup screen, no matter which distro I use and no matter bootloader I choose. Either I get KPs or the computer just reboots the second it gets to the Apple logo. Tried a number of bootflags and combinations, and still nothing. 

 

Any suggestions? Does anyone have a detailed step-by-step guide on how to install ML or Mavericks on this machine? I don't have any IDE's, just SATA hard drives, and don't have AHCI support visible, although I do have two disks in RAID0...

 

EDIT: I've also tried the boot-kabyl-bumby.zip image, no success...C'mon, I really need this to work!

I am happy to report that both ML and the latest Mavericks work on my GeForce 7025/nForce630a MSI board with AMD Phenom II X4 840. Happy Hackintoshing!

      App alternative:
      ESP Mounter Pro: per montare la partizione EFI
      Vi illustrerò tre metodi per creare la usb, ma sono ben distinti… quindi usatene soltanto uno
      Metodo 1: “Install Mac_OS_X.command” Metodo 2: “Create Install Media di Apple” Metodo 3:  Metodo Manuale Alla fine delle preparazione dell’installer, tutti i metodi necessitano l’installazione del Bootloader Clover sulla a vostra USB.
      “CONDIZIONI OBBLIGATORIE”
      PUNTO 1: che la vostra usb sia stata preventivamente nominata USB (caratteri maiuscoli) Tabella di partizione GUID e la formattazione in  Mac esteso Journaled.
      PUNTO 2: che l’installer di OSX si trovi in Applicazioni
      Utility Disco 
      Selezionate la pendrive, andate su “partizione”, selezionate “1 partizione”, impostate Mac OS esteso journaled e date il nome USB, poi in basso cliccate su opzioni e scegliete Tabella partizione (GUID), poi “applica”.
      Immagine 
      Riporto nuovamente l’operazione sopra citata adoperando dal nuovo Utility Disco introdotto su El Capitan.
      Rimane ovviamente invariato nome della usb in ==>> USB (maiuscolo), la formattazione in Mac esteso Journaled e sia la mappa partizione in GUID
      Da utility disco selezionate la usb, cliccate su inizializza.
      dal menù a tendina scegliete la relative impostazioni
      Immagine  
      Procedura effettua da High Sierra è la stessa della precedente, l'unica attenzione e operazione da aggiungere in primis  è cliccare nel menù a tendina in alto sulla sinistra di utility disco e selezionare "mostra tutti i dispositivi"
      Immagine 
       
      =====================
        METODO 1: "Install_Mac_OS_X.Command" Lo script che trovate allegato in fondo alla guida permette la creazione dell’installer in maniera automatica
      Include la possibilità di scelta di tre versioni di osx
      Yosemite El Capitan Sierra Il risultato finale è come quello del metodo "manuale" descritto nella guida, per cui l'installazione avverrà in un solo passaggio, non in due come con il metodo createinstallmedia. 
      Offre inoltre la possibilità di inserire un kernel patchato, utile, per esempio, per chi usa AMD.
      Rimane invariato il nome dato alla usb in USB, mappa partizione e tipo di formattazione
      Se la vostra usb non sarà rinominata nel modo corretto, verrete avvisati dal terminale, quindi non dovrete far altro che apportare la relativa modifica e rilanciare nuovamente lo script
      Esempio
      ===========================
      Metodo 2 
      L'intento è quello di usare la procedura fornitaci direttamente da Apple, "createinstallmedia", introdotta  con Mavericks. 
      Tale metodo prevede l’uso del terminale che via via se ne sta perdendo il “valore e l’uso”
      Inizialmente per i neofiti potrà sembrare problematico ma alla fine non è così.
      Durante il post installazione alcune operazioni ne richiedono l’ uso.
      Perciò mi sono chiesto perchè, qualora uno volesse, non far conoscere da subito un po’ questo “strumento”???
      Per favorirvi vi ho allegato i comandi già  “pronti”, i quali li potrete copiare ed incollare sul terminale.
      A questo punto aprite il terminale, copiate ed incollate il comando sottostante e premete invio, digitate la vostra password e premete nuovamente invio.
      Comando per creare USB con Yosemite:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction  
      Comando per creare USB con El Capitan
      sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app --nointeraction Comando per creare USB con Sierra 
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/ --nointeraction Per creare USB con Hight Sierra o Mojave usate --> C_I_M (aggiornato per 10.14)
       
      Funziona con il drag & drop sul terminale, in questo caso non vi è necessità che la usb sia nominata in un determinato modo ed essendo basato su create install media ovviamente funziona da 10.9 a 10.14.... 
      BENE…IL PROCESSO DI CREAZIONE E’ INIZIATO…
      AVREMO CIRCA 20/30 MINUTI DI TEMPO LIBERO A CUI DEDICARSI A CIO’ CHE VOGLIAMO………………………………………..  
      COLGO L’OCCASIONE PER FARVI NOTARE LA VELOCITA’ E LA SICUREZZA DI QUESTO METODO
      CONFRONTATE QUESTO CON IL TERZO METODO E NOTERETE CHE CON UN SOLO PASSAGGIO, OSSIA IL COMANDO DATO AL TERMINALE, FACCIAMO IN UNA SINGOLA OPERAZIONE TUTTI I VARI STEP DESCRITTI SULL’ ALTRO METODO.
      DETTO QUESTO, MOLTO IMPORTANTE E’ SOTTOLINEARE CHE COSI’ FACENDO EVITEREMO ERRORI  DI DISTRAZIONE RIGUARDO AI PASSAGGI O FRAINTENDIMENTI.
      Immagine 
      Potete adesso passare ad installare il bootloader Clover sulla vostra usb.
      *NOTA*:
      Avendo usato questo metodo l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      =========================
      METODO "MANUALE"....  (lascio per futura memoria-Compatibile fino a 10.12)
      ==========================
      Bootloader
      **Nota:** Installazione in UEFI  dipenderà dalla scheda madre in vostro possesso, quindi se non supporta tale opzione , il bootloader dovrà essere installato in  modalità Legacy.
       Vi invito, qualora non sapeste questa informazione, a recarvi nel sito ufficiale del produttore e controllare le informazioni a riguardo
      Fatto questo dobbiamo installare  Clover sulla usb.
      A seconda del tipo di Bios o al tipo di installazione che vogliamo fare UEFI o Legacy avremo ovviamente configurazioni diverse in questa fase.
      Lanciate il pkg.
      Immagine 

       
      Cambiate la destinazione di installazione ad USB oppure Install Mac_OS_X (a secondo del tipo di creazione eseguita)
      Successivamente clicchiamo su "Ad Hoc"

      7) Sezione System Parameters: Su inject kext mettete YES
      Immagine 
      ===========================
      Nota: Su El Capitan, è stato introdotto SIP (System Integrity Protection)
      Info:
      ===========================
      Recatevi in EFI/Clover/kext/10.x 
      X= alla versione di osx che state installando. Per esempio se installerete Yosemite dovrete recarvi nella cartella 10.10, con El Capitan in 10.11….ecc
      Se non ci fosse tale cartella, createla e nominatela voi a “modo”.
      Copiatevi all’interno FakeSmc.kext
      *Nota se venite già da altre vostre configurazioni, oltre kext sopra citato ,potete mettere gli altri necessari per il vostro hardware
      Stessa cosa se avete DSDT e/o SSDT potete copiarli in EFI/Clover/Acpi/Patched

       Mojave in HFS 
       
       
       
      Fatto questo avrete la vostra USB bootable per installare OSX.
      ………Non scordatevi Fakesmc.kext da mettere nella relativa cartella…. senza il quale non farete mai il Boot......
      *NOTA: se usato il terminale per la creazione della usb, l'installazione si dividerà in due fasi, perciò dopo il primo riavvio e necessario far partire nuovamente l'installer, selezionare lo stesso disco senza formattarlo.
      Finita questa ulteriore fase , l'installazione sarà terminata
      **NOTA** Se avete processori Broadwell,Skylake o Kabylake...usate FakeSmc.kext e relativi sensors che trovate all'interno del secondo pacchetto.. (potete usarlo anche sui precedenti senza problemi, essendo una versione più aggiornata ha ulteriore supporto per le cpu più recenti)
      Update: Fakesmc e sensors versione 6.26
      Post installazione... post #2           
       Buon Hack….. 
      Aggiornamento:Install_Mac_OS_X.command.zip (compatibile da 10.10 a 10.12)
      le info le trovate a questo post

      How to make AppleHDAController load on Ryzen boards?
      Rename(/add) your audio controller to your DSDT/SSDT as HDEF Add a _DSM method to your HDEF device with layout id 1 Patch the AppleHDAController binary, because it has a static table containing the supported PCI Vendor/DeviceID pairs and it also checks the VendorID against known values. As an example I provide a dif file and patched 10.13.3 binary, but if you want to I can patch the binary for other versions.  
      After AppleHDAController loads to actually get sound working you need to patch AppleHDA.kext for the codec on your board. First I tried to use Lilu+AppleALC for this task, but for some reason it refused to work. (I might look into it later why) But for the time being it was easier to use toleda's cloverALC script for that, but to make it work I had to change(/remove) the specified location of the HDEF device from the script. And for some reason it also required me to mount the EFI partition manually.
       
      Change this:
      if [[ $(cat /tmp/HDEF.txt | grep -c "HDEF@1") != 0 ]]; then Into this:
      if [[ $(cat /tmp/HDEF.txt | grep -c "HDEF") != 0 ]]; then

      Hi, I tried during last 4 days almost everything but now I call for help. I have RX560 running on 10.13.4. Previously I was running it on 10.12.6 and had the same problem, but after waking from sleep my thiord display came to life, but it is not working anymore on 10.13.4. Without or with Lilu & Whatewergreen my system correctly recognize my gpu as RX560 but only 2 of 3 displays are displaying content, third display is black but recieving some signal. When I change cabling and connect only two, any combination of 2 displays is working. System profiller and system preferences are sayin I have 3 displays connected.

      Please can somebody help me to figure it out?
      Thanks a lot in advance. Tried to upload my ioreg but it is greater than 10MB allowed for me :(

      Hi, i recently set up High Sierra on my AMD computer with the help of the amdosx community (i actually used an installer just to confirm that something would work in the first place before i spend hours for nothing, i can and could have downloaded High Sierra the "legal" way).
      However the graphicscard is recognized properly, the 6gig are recognized and i have no artifacts and no screen tearing with the official nvidia webdriver,
      but unfortunally, dark colors have horizontal dark stripes in them and specific bright colors like on left bar of system windows such as settings do flicker like low fps.

      I only used the clover on the flash drive for now and i'd like if it's worth digging deeper of if i should just forget about it as it is a common nvidia problem on macOS.
      Would be amazing to know.
       
      Closer machine infos:
      * High Sierra (misses a recent minor patch as my network is veeeery slow and i got this nvidia issue anyway so i mainly jumped back to linux)
      * AMD fx8350
      * Asus Sabertooth 990fx Ref. 2.0
      * NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

      Hello everyone, I have an Asus gl502vmk (i7 kabylake + GTX 1060 6 gb) laptop and I tried all the patches/kexts to get the brightness with fn keys/touchpad (I2C ELAN 1200 works with VooDoo I2C kext v1.0 but no gestures/preference pane)/Keyboard backlight to work but no success so far, any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
      [EDIT] (10/04/2018)
      Battery status now works, thanks to @RehabMan turned out to be incorrect SMBIOS (used iMac instead of Mbp) lol, but it drains crazy fast (~1.5 - 2 hours while on standby (all apps quited!), on windows 10 it lasts 4 - 5 hours, and on linux it lasts 6 ~ 7 hours!)
      And with VoodooI2C v2.0.1 + VoodooI2CHID kext and patched DSDT, the touchpad is now detected in the sys pref pane but still no input.
      Sound works with VoodooHDA v2.9.1, but the only issue is that the jack sense isn't working (the output device doesn't auto switch to headphone when connected)
       
      [EDIT 2] (11/04/2018)
      The system brightness now works thanks to @onejay09 but I have no brightness slider, and there are 4 extra brightness levels (brightness stops increasing after 12 levels)  and the brightness keys are not mapped correctly, plus the brightness decreases when I plug in the ac adapter, then increases if I unplug it???, the brightness level isn't also saved after reboot.
      battery still drains crazy fast (~1.5 - 2 hours, even with brightness at 50%, so apparently it is a power management issue).
      and I also have shutdowns while in sleep mode (I tried darkwake=10 and darkwake-0 and darkwake=no)
       
      P.S. I have uploaded my new report files, thanks!
