  1. We are all at the mercy of @Niresh hard work here. While i am typing my hackintosh Yosemite zone is running on virtualbox roughly stable but it's way beyond my expections. After a little playing with hereYosemite i downloaded High Sierra DMG via torrent and and now i'm trying to do the same for High sierra zone. But as you now virtualbox can only boot from a bootable ISO. here is what i did to convert hackintosh high sierra to ISO.

    Black Screeen Boot, No error.

    Black Screeen Boot, No error. Hi! I have tried running a vanilla macOS Sierra Install and it's a little too difficult with the hardware I have so I have decided to try Yosemite-Zone Mobo: Not sure, some Lenovo mobo that came with the PC 4GB RAM CPU: Intel Core i5 3470S @ 2.9Ghz Graphics: Intel Integrated HD 2500 (I know this is only slightly supported in Yosemite) So when booting from the USB in VirtualBox and from my BIOS, it either carries on to boot Windows or says No boot medium. I tried booting Yosemite-Zone.iso in VirtualBox and it didnt boot OSX Installer but I got to the bootloader. The ISO is too big too fit onto a DVD and I tried 'burning' it to USB using rufus but it is an "unsupported image" The reason I would like to use the ISO is because the DMG does not seem to work. Let me add that the USB I tried booting from had Yosemite-Zone.dmg on it from TransMac. Not really sure what else to do, I know this is a useful community so any help is appreciated. Nick
  3. Can someone please tell me how to install Multibeast? I have my Yosemite Hackintosh running nicely on a custom built pc but I have no idea how to install Multibeast to tidy up the few non-working items (wi-fi, Audio). I have the tutorial so I'm okay with how to use it, but I can't understand how to install it. The download is in iso format but the pc, of course, is formatted for Mac. This may be a simple thing but I don't get it. Please help. Thanks.

    iso vs dmg install

    Please help me get past the problem I am having trying to follow the instructions article for installing the Niresh install to a Windows (AMD64) machine. The instructions article says to install from a USB with the DMG file - but that fails to happen, and i suspect it it because the dmg format is a compressed archive. Should i be extracting the files and then putting them on a USB, and try again, or should i use the ISO? Are there any instructions available for installing from the ISO? (The comments with the file suggest it needs to be opened from a virtual machine - but I am not sure that is the case.) Detailed instructions would help me a lot (I am a newbie as is probably obvious). Thanks.
  7. I try to build the own bootable DVD images with OS X installers and found some serious problems with way to create ISO file. OS X system binaries have a utility for do it named 'hdiutil'. This software contains special command for including boot sector in ISO images but thats all deprecated. With command 'El Torito' boot we can add the boot sector(e.g. cdboot from chameleon bootloader package) and create the disk. In present days most of installers intended for USB flash drive ways but i'd like to use optical disks. Most of old cdboot files is to old for new hardware and disks created with that is to stupid. It's real boot images and chimerachameleon 'boot' file work correct but loading process crash after timer line is out. Have any ideas how to create a boot DVD? I have a system and i have an installer but i can't write the working disk. What CDBOOT sectors i can use to do the Ivy Bridge and Haswell compatible installer images? We really can build boot DVD images with OS X installer fast and simple but all of new installers intended to flash. Have any ideas? Can we "respawn" old 'cdboot' style in new installers versions for Sandy, Ivy and Haswell? In experimental bootable flash drive cropped OS X system with only x86_64 architecture, languages and minimal functioning software it's have only 2-2.5Gb disk space ... and it is a format of small(13 size) optical DVD circle.
  8. Hello, I'm trying to boot from the niresh mavericks installation but the procedure is stuck at booting from the external hard drive. I have downloaded both dmg and iso files and imaged them to my external drive more than 10 times. I could actually see the files in the external hard drive except for the niresh logo, is that normal? What do you think is the problem? I have used win32DiskImager. I have tried two different hdds. What would you recommend? Thank you
