Hello everyone. So, im kinda new to this whole hackinstosh, but, i have some experience i know at least the
Big picture. Tried to install mac, stucks at "System uptime in nanosecods: xxxx", some panic error "Local APIC Error".
If you want me to take a pic, sure, but i think that is enough considering what i have searched. I've tried to boot with some flags like "cpus=1", "nv_disabler=1", "GraphicsEnabler=NO" and some "nvda_driver".
Did everything in the main tutorial with the #####...
AND. I got pass that error once but surprise surprise, "Still Waiting for root device".
Hi, first of all let me introduce a bit myself. I am software developer, I learnt programming in Java and I also learnt Android developing and Python. Now quite recently I'm interested in C++, because it is an object-oriented compiled language so it is the best when performance comes to play. So my main interest in hackintosh is for developing/experimenting.
I will tell you more about it below, but now here I will drop some doubts/questions that I have about hackintoshing.
First, I have already researched a bit about my hardware and I think I will be fine. This is my build http://pcpartpicker.com/p/m2p7rH
Note that I didn't had planned to install OS X on it, but I think I was lucky enough to get a fairly compatible hardware.
Now here comes an important question. There are any good alternatives to tonymacx86 beasts? Why do I need them?
I prefer to do not use their crapware. I was lucky enough to get a copy of both programs from a nice user on Reddit. But I'm not sure whether is it a good idea to use them or not. I know that you can directly use Clover to create a bootable drive, but... What is the difference between that and the "magic" of the tonymacx86 tool?
Now I should mention that my goal is to triple boot Windows, Ubuntu and OS X. Can you give me some advice?
From here I will describe more deeply my motivations to hackintoshing.
Well I mentioned that my purposes were mainly for developing. More specifically I'm interested on iOS Development (obviously) but instead of developing "native" applications maybe I will try Oracle's Mobile Application Framework (Ha! Surely you didn't saw that coming) specially because I could use my favourite IDE, Eclipse. But my developing interest doesn't end here. Since I will develop eventually some C++ applications I would like to create multiple distributions for different platforms, including Mac OS X. Even if I make them open source, so anyone could compile them. Because an official distribution is almost always more trustful than the non-official ones, and of course the end user may not know how to properly compile the application.
Besides the developing interest I just would like to experiment and learn. Jesus! Apple is obsessed with the Command key(Yeah I already installed OS X on VMs, more specifically on Virtualbox), you need it for common shortcuts such us copy & paste. Which is very funny since the Windows key is almost useless. But becomes the Command key on Hackintosh and the Super key on Ubuntu.
And last, but not least. Having a machine with the 3 main OSes should make you feel like you have a machine to rule them all. ( )
Sorry, this took longer than expected, I would be very happy if read the full post.
A new version of Skylake integrated graphics driver was included in the latest OS X El Capitan 10.11.4 update.
Some "restrictions" (checking pci ids of Broadwell's IGPUs) have been removed from the AppleIntelFramebufferController::start() method.
So basically your Skylake's IGPUs could be working now.
- Some Remarks
Should you have kernel panic like minStolenSize <= fStolenMemorySize, you could avoid it by:
Either (1) Applying the patch
(Note that you should NOT use this patch if your DVMT pre-allocated memory in your BIOS settings is already >= 64MB)
Or (2) Applying the patch (Thanks to Rehabman)
or (3) you could modify the DVMT pre-allocated memory in your BIOS settings to 64MB or 96MB. (SUGGESTED)
(Note that this method is suggested especially when you have a laptop with high resolution screen)
Assertion failed: minStolenSize <= fStolenMemorySize
I will keep updating this post. Looking forward to some successful cases.
