  1. ACPI Dynamic OEM table load error Firstly, on creating the High Sierra beta installation drive, I have edited the config.plist in TextEdit and changed Inject Intel to false and inject Nvidia to True have booted the High Sierra Beta with just the -v boot flag. It went fine. I have proceeded with the installation. On first boot, it said 21 minutes remaining, and then reboot, and then the installation it resumes. On first boot, the internal Macintosh HD has not icon, unlike the installation pen driver, only a blue circle. DDST patch seems over my expertise as of today, this seems the best solution. Dart=0, nv_disable=1 or npci=0x3000 do not seem to work. Also, when I managed to boot the OS using -x boot flag, it moved horribly slow, unlike Sierra or the installation medium of Sierra. It may be something regarding the low ram, yet, but that is, most likely, rather easy to fix. Installation of Clover failed.

  2. Shut down blocked A new hard configuration, the old motherboard was broken. Things went fine at first. After a few days, noticed a nasty issue that was getting more and more serious: the os tended to block at shut down. It gets to CPUhalted (if offline) or Realtek link down on en0 (if online) and then stop. Overheating was an issue on the previous configuration (Gigabyte) based, but there, at least there was a CPU overheating alarm. On the new one, nothing similar. Specs are: Asus P5P41TED Rev X.ox Intel Core 2 Duo e8500 Nvidia GeForce 6200 To be able to shut down, I do this: 1) Reboot after being logged on; 2) reboot 1-3 times being logged off; 3) shut down being logged off. But sometimes not even this works. Sometimes, the bios seem to fail loading. At one point it even gave an error of loading. At first install, it ran until a Quick boot option, that skipped some tests, to be able to boot faster, but I disabled that, in order to keep the hardware safer, to run the full tests. This a serious issue. Maybe some patching will work. I boot with only verbose mode, -v, no other bootflags. A shut down block would potentially affect the installed OS on the hard drive? Is this a dead lock?
  3. Realtek Ethernet not working in Sierra I have changed thoose days the motherboard, it got fried due to some power failure. It was a Gigabyte S 3. I have found a fairly cheap Gigabyte motherboard, slightly older then the one that was fried. Instalation went well, up until tried to connect for the first time via ethernet. It refused to work. Tried several solutions, including removing and reinstalling the kext, nothing worked. My specs are: gigabyte fsb 1066 ga-945gzm-s2 motherboarrd, Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 CPU, and Nvidia Geforce 6200 Graphics. Installed Windows and device manager it said it is Realtek PCI GBE Family Controller. The standard Realtek kext does no work, it seems.
  4. I have had a similar issue when updating 10.2 to 10.3 . I switched from Clover to Chameleon, I have now 10.5. Maybe you can try a new Clover version. If the latest Chameleon will not boot properly either, try an older version, a few months earlier.
  5. Just a basic question about El Capitan, it may sound dumb for experienced users, but since I am quite new to Hackintoshing (less then a year) and did not tested the public beta of Yosemite, I would like to ask anyone who installed the Niresh version of El Capitan: from beta 1 to beta 2 there is an update that appears in App Store or only a fresh install from scratch can make the switch from beta 1 to beta 2 etc? I am asking this to see if I choose to download and install the latest version of El Capitan uploaded by Niresh.
  6. Graphic card Nvidia GeForce 6200. One old monitor. Search Google for Clover iso . Burn it to a cd-rw or to an usb drive, other then the one on which you have the Yosemite installer. I used the boot flags (boot arguments) npci=0x2000 or npci=0x3000, I have firstly succeded with the first, then with the second, I guess the second is better, but one of them seems crucial for situaitions like this one. In Clover, on first screen, on Options there is a menu where you can get the place where the boot flags can be added.
  7. Try to burn a Clover iso un a cd-rw and, after booting that, try to boot the OS from it. If it works, you can then install Clover on the hard drive, marking all the ps2 keyboard and mouse kexts. I had a similar issue and this worked for me.
  8. For me, it did not booted as well. Chameleon, the new version for Yosemite, seems to have some issues with certain old motherboards. I have burned a Clover iso on a cd-rw, and used it to boot the usb installer. After installing without a bootloader, I have booted the installed OS using the same cd with Clover, then installed Clover on the partition on which I had installed Yosemite. I have BIOS on the board, not UEFI, but I have partitioned the hard drive with GPT, giving a better environment to Clover to boot and to be installed, although it seems to work at this step with MBR as well. After booting the os, ejected the cd and rebooted, the Clover on the hard drive took the role of the one on the CD. The only downside is that, at every boot, I need to manually add the boot flag (boot argument) npci=0x2000 .
  9. I have managed to install Yosemite on an old system, from 2007. There clear issues regarding the che ss app. If I open it on screen it blocks and sometimes I can not even get out of it into the desktop, and even after reinstallation of the OS Chess acts really sluggish. At first, it works fine, then, after working on settings, it star,ts going bad, it takes even one minute, sometimes, to respond to a command. I think that, if 3d effects will be out, this app and apps that use the same functions will work fine. Does anyone know anything to this, anyone having an idea on this?
  10. So, finally it worked. I decided to share my installation experience. I have a costum made system, but an old one, with Gigabyte 945pl s3p as motherboard and Nvidia Geforce 6200 as video card, with an Intel dual core cpu. This configuration could have been the one for a home made Mackintosh back in 2007, altought this combination was not mode for this. First step, I tried Mountain Lion. I managed to install it with Chameleon, surpasing a kernel panic with back up the Nvidia Graphics. But, after installation, it froze often, reset being the only way to exit this state. So, I tried Mavericks. After finding the way how to boot from USB (this type of motherboard is very picky on booting USB devices, the boot menu is really weird and automatic boot is not possible, only through the boot menu from pressing f12), installed Mavericks with Chameleon. It worked, the freezing from Mountain Lion was gone. App Store, iTunes Store etc did now work, so I googled and discovered a way. So, the next step was to try Yosemite. The image made by Niresh refused to boot on itself. I have tried to boot it using the Chameleon boot menu at the basis of the Mavericks installation, it failed, giving the Can,t find mach_kernel error. I realised that I can not use Chameleon, because the old Chameleon will not see the Darwin 14 kernel, because of it,s location and name that have changed. So, I reinstalled Mavericks with Clover. It worked, even the Apple stores went fine, I did not need that tweak anymore. Using the base installed Clover, I could boot the Yosemite installer. I knew that Mavericks and Yosemite share the same basic hardware requirements, so I had to work one way or the other, and this confirmed. I have installed Yosemite on Clover, but it either have me an error at the end of the installation, or, if not, the PCI Configuration begin error. On the guide, Niresh said he removed the boot argument npci=0x2000, because it caused him issues. I have burned Clover on an iso, to use it as a boot loader, so I will not depend on an installed Mavericks that I should reinstall every time I tried to install Yosemite. I so that it had npci=0x2000, so I booted the Yosemite installation media with it, adding this boot argument. I succeeded in this, and, to avoid issued, after repartitioning on GPT, I have installed without a bootloader. This installation was reported as a success, and booted through the Clover from the cd-rw I put it into, with npci=0x2000 added at every boot. I could log in, the downloaded Clover and installed it on the main partition. I could now remove the cd, to boot from the hard drive. The only drawback is that I have e to manually add npci=0x2000 on every boot. I have installed all the updates from the App Store. I found that it freezes on log in screen, so I reinstalled the OS and deactivated the log in screen. I figured out that the need to manually add the boot argument in Clover time could serve as log in password, anyway. So, I guess that this method could be used by others in similar situations like mine. What issues I still have: some apps freeze in full screen maximised mode, like Chess, and sometimes it is even impossible to return to the desktop from them. If I could restore the old maximise function, it would be something. iTunes complex visualisations refuse to work due to the video card, they say, I mean iTunes Visualizer (Magnetosphere) and iTunes Classic Visualizer (GeForce). I would really like to make them work. Now, a lot is still ahead, I mean to learn about maintenance. On Windows, the need to clean up disk, delete internet cache etc is needed at least weekly, I assume in here is the same thing, I know that defragmenting has to occur rarely, once every six months, perhaps even rarely, I found out, not minimum weekly, like on Windows. Finally, I would like to thank Niresh and the rest of you for making this possible. Keep on going, in the name of freedom.
  11. If I install Yosemite on my laptop, there are certain issues that I consider a must. 1) The build-in dust removal hardware has, obviously, a Windows driver and a gui app to use it. Now, does OS X have a build-in equivalent or there is any non-Apple app that can be installed to use this hardware component? 2) I know that defragmentation on Linux it is not an issue, like it is on Windows. OS X, as a Unix based OS, is the same as Linux on this? 3) Does OS X have build-in disk cleanup and maintenence utilities, like the latest Windows?
  12. I guess that, if I install Mountain Lion from a DVD, not an usb driver, then I can upgrade to the Niresh distro of Mavericks or Yosemite without burning another DVD or using an USB flash drive, just download the installer and run it. Right?
  13. Thx for the replies. All I need now is USB flash drive, large enought to fit the installer.
  14. And, by the way, does this distro have full support, read and write, for NTFS partitions?
  15. I was thinking on Logic Pro, when I said DAW. Logic Pro asks for 4 gb and I know the installer stops if less if ram is present.
