Salve a tutti, un mio amico ha un iMac del 2006 core 2 duo (versione 5.1) questo iMac fino ad un pò di tempo fà montava ancora OS X Lion (10.7.5) purtroppo per colpa dell'EFI a 32 bit e delle caratteristiche l'iMac non ha più aggiornamenti e neanche i programi, per questa regione il mio amico ha fatto un tentativo ed attraverso una "patch" è riusvito ad installare maverick...però non funzionano alcune periferiche (tra cvui la scheda video che fà dei glitch.
Visto che non ci sono più supporti ne kext che possono fare funzionare le periferiche in maniera corretta abbiamo pensato di installarci ubuntu mate 20.04 con efi a 32 bit (esiste una versione che supporta il processore a 64 bit e l'efi a 32 bit) così da "rivitalizzarlo un pò" purtroppo non riusciamo in nessun modo a fargli vedere la chiavetta usb o i dvd da cui fare partire l'installazione.
Qualcuno ha qualche idea di come poter risolvere il problema e procedere con l'installazione "pulita" di linux?
Hello! My internal SSD lifetime is running out so I'm thinking how to upgrade it. I don't want to replace it with slow Sata SSD so I want to buy OWCMercury Helios and install new nvme fast ssd, but I won't be able to boot from it using standard boot loader.... Is it possible to boot nvme ssd using Clover on real iMac?
I am asking you with a great request for help with a problem I can not deal with.
I hope I have chosen a good section on this topic
I have been using my Hackintosh for some time now
it does not cause me any more problems except for the one that irritates me
the system does not recognize my monitor and detects it as a
monitor monitor VGA
13,9'' (800 x 600)
Gigabyte GeForce 9600 GT 512 MB
My monitor model: LG Flatron W2243S
As you can see in the attached picture, the system does not recognize the monitor as a built-in screen
My main problem is that when the screen resolution is set to 1920x1080, black bars appear on the sides of the screen
It is not very comfortable, that's why I would like to change it and make the image look the whole width of the monitor
The monitor is connected to the graphics card with an adapter from the VGA connector to the DVI connector
this is my conifig.plist
I hope that I described my problem in a comprehensible way, thank you very much for your help
I've an early 2006 iMac (4,1) that I updated with Core2Duo. I then upgraded the firmware to 5,1 and everything works without issues. It is currently running 10.6.8. System profile reports it correctly as an iMac5,1.
I wanted to update it to El Capitan (or Mavericks at the very least) because most apps are in dire need of upgrade. The problem is that the MPF and macOS extractor guides have a prerequisite that you start at Lion (10.7) and I just can't get it installed.
I've followed the procedure described in this post: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/249877-how-to-install-lion-on-any-coreduo-mac-upgraded-to-a-core2duo/, specifically post#8. In a nutshell, I've:
created an "InstallLion", restoring it to the contents of the BaseSystem.dmg file found inside the installer volume.
removed the symlink and copied the installation packages.
deleted the PlatformSupport.plist and copied the new OSInstall.mpkg.
It doesn't even boot from the image. I've also tried in an external USB drive and no dice. It starts booting and immediately shuts down.
Does anyone have any clue where to trouble shoot? Is there an updated procedure that has a better success rate? Is it possible to get a bare system image from someone with an upgraded iMac5,1 that has it working?
I'm relatively new to the Hackintosh community. It's certainly not the first time someone has had a problem like this, but I thought I'd post it.
So, about a month ago, I picked up an HP Pavilion computer I had lying around from 2009, and I thought I'd try turning it into a Hackintosh just for kicks and giggles, so I knew what it was like before I tried installing it on my main PC. I'm using Clover as the bootloader.
Here are the specs:
Pentium Dual Core E5200 2.5ghz
ASUS ATI Radeon X1600 Pro Silent 512MB (device ID = 71c3)
4GB DDR2 RAM 800mhz
Seagate 320GB HDD
macOS Sierra seemed to return a kernel panic, probably because SSE 4.2 support is not present on the E5200 if I recall correctly.
El Capitan seemed to boot fine though, and I installed it. To my surprise, it booted on the first try. So I did some post-installation with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to get the audio working and the bootable hard drive.
So here I am, on El Capitan 10.11.
The only issue I'm still facing is the graphics card. Sure, it might be old, but I heard some people got it working with full QE/CI.
The thing is, it tells me it only has 5MB of VRAM. As a consequence, there are numerous screen artifacts (especially on logon, it's awful to watch), major slowdowns, no DVD playing support apparently, and most importantly, no QE/CI.
