  1. Hello! I'm pretty new here. I'm not very technologically smart (I'm honestly quite a noob) but I hope you can bear with me! Here are my computer specs according to CPU-Z: http://imgur.com/a/Cathx I have an HP Pavilion 500-424 PC. It's got 8GB RAM, 2TB hard space, and an AMD A8-6410 APU with integrated Radeon R5 graphics. I have a working, bootable OS X Niresh Mavericks USB drive. I have all of my BIOS settings properly configured (I think - it boots from the USB). I've tried to boot it using multiple flags. I have never got in to the OS X installer. In fact, I can barely get to the Apple logo at all. When I do get to the Apple logo, either nothing happens, or I get an "EFI not supported" error message panic. Other times, I get to a black screen doing absolutely nothing, or my PC just restarts. I have tried hp, amd, amd64, and amdfx as kernels. "amd" gave me an instant "EFI not supported" kernel panic, "amd64" gives me a white screen with the Apple logo doing absolutely nothing (I waited for, like, fifteen minutes and it didn't do anything). "hp" just restarts my computer back to the "select your boot disk" screen. "amd -v" gives me an error: "tsc_init: EFI not supported!\n"@/Users/iMac/Desktop/xnu-2422.1.72_by_bronya_sinetek_anv_rc7/osfmk/i386\tsc.c:616". "amd64 -v" just gives me an infinite black screen after entering the boot flags and getting past the boot disk menu. "hp -v" just restarts my computer. I'm using VGA (as my monitor doesn't have anything else I can use). Did I not wait long enough on the Apple logo with "amd64", or did I not wait long enough at the black screen in "amd64 -v" (I waited for five minutes)? Or am I simply not using the right boot flags? Any help that may lead me in the right direction would be of great help! Thank you!
  2. Yes I've done the research and everything came together and You wont be able to install any Mac OS X to your PC if you have a AMD APU because the APU is a CPU/Graphics Joined together and Mac dont support it so its up to someone like Niresh to make it it would be nice if he could but to everyone that has a problem and get that kernel panic even when you use "-v -x USBBusFix=Yes GraphicsEnabler=No -f) And it still doesn't work...... It was a waste of your time because that wasn't the problem it was you Processor ! Hopefully we see a difference int he future about this problem for laptops ! Update: 1/14/2014 for some people it will work IE desktops have the Chance ! Staff DO NOT Unpin or Delete this thread, This is for people who have this Processor and to stop them from wasting there time trying/posting a thread about it !

    Dear All, Please can I have urgent help. I have tried building a hackintosh with a A8 APU Radeon HD Graphics with 6GB DDR3 Memory, and it could not be worse. Also, I have spent nearly 2 days to get to this stage and I am not tech savvy at all so please use dummy words! I installed it successfully, but when it boots up there is flickering black lines which go down the screen, when it reaches the desktop there is the biggest lag when moving the cursor or doing anything. Also, it does not recognise Wifi, USB or anything like that. Where do I begin? Thank You. Justin

  6. Hello all. I have an Acer Aspire One 725 (Non-UEFI Edition), 11.6" netbook with the following technical specification *CPU - AMD C-70 APU 1.0 GHz with Turbo boost to 1.3 GHz *GPU - Radeon HD7290 with boost to 400 MHz *RAM - 4 GB DDR3 1333 MHz *HDD - 500 GB in excellent health. *Network: Wi-Fi: Realtek RTL8188CE 802.n PCI-E Wireless LAN Adapter Ethernet (I use it much): Realtek RTL8139/810X Fast Ethernet Adapter (100 Mbps) I want to install some Hackintosh, I don't have any preferences, only to be 10.7 Lion or up. I tried almost all hackintosh versions (10.7; 10.8; 10.9) with many boot flags such as -x; -amd; -amd64 and etc. but no success. I only succeded in someway with Mavericks with boot flag -amd64 but on the first startup (after installation) it stucked on the Apple logo and nothing more... In all other cases I'm stucked at Apple logo loading right after I select USB from boot menu and then partition to boot... Can you please give me some advices what boot flags to use for example, etc. I only find information about other video card, but they are not working too (I tried them too). Every help is welcomed. Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english.

    Need Help Please. AMD A8 APU

    Hey Guys, I have been trying to Install Mavericks on my HP Envy TS 15-j009wm. I have tried every boot flag, and kernel i can think of. All i get is a few lines and then a reboot. HP Envy Touchsmart 15-J009wm AMD A8-5550m APU Radeon HD 8550g Graphics 8gb Ram. Let me know if you need anything else. May be able to donate with paypal if you can help me get it running.
  10. I approached my OS X 10.9 Mavericks installation with a lot of caution. It sounds so damn complicated! I guess quite a bit of any computer skill comes from direct experience and can't be taught but this setup was so incredibly easy. SO many people have problematic issues with this or that, making a Macintosh out of PC hardware can clearly be a LOT of work. I want to tell my tale of great fortune I am a PC gamer who had a good deal of old hardware laying around, so one day I bought an AMD apu 5800k and an ASUS mobo for it, and with the extra components I had a great home theatre pc. I had been looking at Hackintosh builds for quite a while, and once I discovered Niresh I was really encouraged to give it a try. I will get into specifics with anyone interested IN THE COMMENTS, otherwise I think it's better to show specs as basic hardware components: -AMD 5800k APU - install boot flag= amdfx So why did I choose FX instructions? Because the 5800k uses Bulldozer/Vishera type cores or units. -ASUS FM2+ mobo -4 gb ram - 2 parts -make sure you have working RAM chips, or system will crash no matter the OS -500 gb WD hard drive (I tried a 1 TB HD, installation was good but when booting I got the error that affects 1 TB+ boot drives... don't use a 1TB or greater boot drive for reasons you really don't want to get into) -Sapphire AMD HD 6850 2 GB gpu ~ I find it hilarious that for PC gaming this sucker is old and useless, on a Mac it's top of the line for the next year at least. So I follwed directions, after some research I decided on: graphicsenabler=YES When I first tried to boot it froze at account creation, so I rebooted and tried some advice from a friend and type in quickly (during the Niresh boot) : -x -v This enables safe mode / verbose mode. The system booted to the Mavericks desktop. The Niresh optimization system started and things worked themselves out (thank so SO much Niresh for this, man truly I have so much love for this kindness). Sound worked automatically with front and rear ports, spdif etc. identified in the sound control panel. What was amazing is that once I restarted out of safe mode, the graphics card did Quartz Extreme and everything else perfectly. Here was my most pleasing "hack" - and one that I think a lot of you will appreciate I have a TP link usb wireless card, and I downloaded the OS X 10.8 installer form their website from my PC and brought it by flash drive to the Hackintosh. For whatever reason, it wouldn't let me install. Everything in the installer was greyed out and set to "skip". I went into hacker mode. I used the (THANK YOU NIRESH AGAIN!!!) unpacking tools provided to make it work. I knew it was the correct installer package, so I viewed "package contents" of each element, right clicking on each package, viewing contents, then with the "payload" file I right clicked and unarchived it, taking the .kext file onto my desktop (.kext files are extensions or drivers needed for hardware to work). I then used the .kext installer tool included by Niresh in the local Applications folder and installed them together, then used my manually unpacked "Wireless Tool.app" on restart. It fucking worked. OMG. I was so pleased. How did I figure this out? I open the "uninstall" script in TextEdit and there it is, in reverse, all the files that would normally be installed and the directories they belong in. So I restart and open my Wireless Tool.app, load up my access point bitch: Now I'm online. So I installed Steam and linked to my account, wow I was able to play graphically intensive games on my new "Mac Pro". The AMD 5800k showed up as a Xeon 3.82ghz quad core in the system, pretty hilarious. The 6850 goes beyond it's PC potential on a pc, it behaves so differently and wonderfully under OS X. I understand now why Apple doesn't use "cutting edge" GPU's in their systems. My gaming PC's AMD r9 290 would do severe damage on an OS X system man lol. I tried to load the new Tomb Raider title in Steam got an error - You need to update to 10.9.1... SHIT. SHIIIIIT. I sat there looking at forum posts about the nightmares associated with updating. I eventually said fudge it, downloaded the so-called "Mac Pro 10.9.1 update" a link to the Apple updater file you can find through Google from tonymacx86. Ran the update....... Everything worked better. Why am I so lucky. I kid you not, boot times faster, better gaming performance. Good deep breath. Ok my new AMD Mac Pro is bad ass. So I had been reading up on using a PC bluetooth dongle to use the Apple Magic Mouse and PS3 controllers... WTF!!!! I plugged it in and it worked right away. Sweet. In the bluetooth control panel I paired my Apple Magic Mouse and a PS3 controller. At this point I was feeling like the luckiest Hackintosher ever. It had been such a simple smooth setup. With my 10.9.1 working perfectly, sound, you name it, everything still good, I crossed my fingers and launched Tomb Raider. Boom. Immediate bluetooth PS3 controller support, I put the graphics @ 1080p on High settings, gamed my heart out. I have had such a great Hackintosh experience, it was so easy. Anyone needing guidance go on and comment. AMD Hackintosh is not only possible, it's fucking awesome.

    Apps crash right after launch

    I'm new to hackintoshing, and fortunately I was able to install and boot niresh 10.9 on my AMD laptop with little resistance. Now i'm faced with a new problem. Some apps crash right after launch like photobooth, chess and most importantly the ios simulator app in xcode. I read that if QE/CI isn't able to run you wouldn't be able to move chess pieces or something, but I can't even open the app. So i'm unsure if it's related to my cause. Help would be very appreciated.
