Use Toshiba Satellite C855D-S5307 as a Hackintosh

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,



This is my first post and I'm hoping someone can help me. I have a almost new Toshiba Satellite that I'd like to use as a Hackintosh. I've searched and searched but can't find anything about it for my particular laptop If anyone could help I'd appreciate it. My system stats are below:


CPU: AMD Dual-Core A6-4400M Accelerated Processor

MEMORY: 8GB DDR3 1600MHz memory

GPU: AMD Radeon™ HD 7520G

LAN ADAPTER: Qualcomm Atheros AR8162 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller



And while I don't have the exact model the sound is a Realtek audio card. From what I have seen the biggest hurdle I'm facing is the fact that my cpu is an AMD.


Again, thanks for any help I can get.

Forget about it with AMD processor.. Even if you manage to run it with patched kernel, it still won't work as good as on Intel processor.

For the Toshiba C855D-S5103 I got it working with Snow Leopard (10.6) using distro SnowLeo DVD


Everything works.


You'll need to get the wifi kexts from osx86.net as well as the right audio kext, don't use voddohda for audio on this distribution.. it doesn't work.. you have to get the realtek kext from osx86.net - otherwise SLruns and it works beautiful. 


No problems with USB, everything else worked. 


Unselect UUID (you don't need it if you use the default bootloader)


choose Evoreboot with OpenHaltRestart, (both)


for chipset Use the option beneath Legacy AHCI


Use Vodoo powermini but use ApplePS2 (32bit)


If you need the full list I use, just reach out, I'll email it..
