AMD FX + HD7xxx 10.8.3 Hackintosh Build?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,
I'm currently running a Windows 7 x64 PC with:

8GB DDR3 Ram

AMD FX 4170 GPU

AMD Radeon HD 7870 CPU

1TB HDD (Windows 7)

150GB HDD (Blank)

 

Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 Motherboard

I am aware that getting OSX on an AMD machine is not an easy task, but can it be done with my setup?

I am currently running OSX 10.8.3 in VMWare which is OK but lags a fair bit and lacks any kind of 3d acceleration and would like to be able to dual boot it natively alongside windows on the 150GB HDD.

Thanks smile.png

First of all test OS X on a different hdd, it will be easier to troubleshoot. Than go for dual boot because as you know AMD support is not good and that goes true even for their graphics card.

      I did it again! With the release of the Navi drivers for macOS by Apple I bought a card and ported my popular PowerPlay Table generators to the RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT. Some might know I already did the same for V56/64 and Radeon VII. This tool allows you to change GPU, SoC and Memory Clocks, voltages for GPU and SoC (for undervolting or overvolting), adjust Power and TDC limits and customizing fan control. The whole thing is based in a simple Excel spreadsheet and provides you with a long Hex string you can then inject to your graphics card via Clover device properties. If you want to use it on a real Mac (eGPU or Mac Pro) you can use a Dummy Kext to inject the PowerPlay Table. Please make sure that you only run this spreadsheet in Excel! iWork, OpenOffice and Libre Office are known to do wrong calculations.

      I have used UniBest to create my builds in the past and they have mostly been successful. I tried the other methods as a last resort. I have not gotten past the Apple boot screen with any method attempting to install Mojave. 
       
       

       
       
       
      I have followed all the guides I can in order to get a successful install. However, it has been hard to get a definitive guide to solve my issues.
       
       
      Could somebody please help me with the correct [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] settings. Ie UEFI Boot Mode or Legacy Boot Mode? 
      Recommended BIOS Settings for my system. 
       
       
      It might also just be the required Clover boot screen setup / flags 
       
       
       
      I also have no clue which [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] configurations are required for me to build.
       
       
       
      Any help at all will be most appreciated.
       
       
      I can post any more information regarding errors and crashes if required.
