  1. I tried to install Yosemite 10.10, the first release by Hackintosh Zone for AMD processors, and had no success as I was always stuck between the boot and login screen, the only way i would make it past was in safe mode which is almost useless. Has anyone had any success on an FX-8xxx Series CPU with the latest version of Yosemite-Zone (10.10.1). If so, what boot-flags do you use? My build: CPU: AMD FX-8320, 3.5ghz Ram: 10Gb DDR3 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 1GB MoBo: ASRock 990FX Extreme3 AM3+
  2. Hi, I have installed OSX Yosemite on my PC but it will only boot into safe mode, I have tried all these boot flags individually and all at once: npci=0x2000 npci=0x3000 GraphicsEnabler=No GraphicsEnabler-Yes IGPEnabler=No PCIRootUID=1 -v -f When I boot in normal mode with no boot flags I get a grey screen with a spinning wheel. I have also tried using an NVidia GPU to see if it will boot but it won't. I have previously installed OSX Mavericks on the same PC and it booted fine, I just couldn't get WIFI working. My PC Specs are: AMD FX 8320 CPU AMD R9 270X GPU Asus M5 A97 R2.0 Motherboard Thanks
  3. hi there my laptop is a hp probook 6550b. i've instaled mavericks from the pen drive. after instalation i had the grey screen, i managed to fix that but after i restarted the computer the only way i could boot was either using boot without ceches, safe mode or by using cpus=1. but not normaly or with ACPI=off. im very new to this type of thing if anyone could help that would be awesome also i cant get the wifi or camera to work, im not that fussed about the camera but the wifi would be realy usefull as i only have 2 working usb ports and having one taken up by a usb wifi dongle would be annoying. specs can be found here http://www.cnet.com/products/hp-probook-6550b-15-6-core-i5-450m-windows-7-pro-4-gb-ram-320-gb-hdd-series/specs/ i tryed to copy and past but it was a mess sorry. CPU Intel Core i5 450M / 2.4 GHz Graphics Processor Intel HD Graphics 4g ram
  4. Hello!I cannot boot in Yosemite without bootflag -x. When i tried to boot in without booting in safe-mode i got kernel panic. I have tried many bootflags before, but none of them didn't work at all. Is there any way to solve this issue?My configuration: 8gb ramnVidia GeForce GT 740M (2gb vRam) + integrated Intel graphics1 TB HDDIntel inside CORE i7 QuadCore
  5. After installing Yosemite I have tried to boot back in, but I am only sucessfull with safemode (which does not allow me to acess any drives or internet) Without safemode I am waiting at a greyscreen with a "loading" cursor. I tracked the error down and the error is: "Warning : Could not block sleep during cache update Warning: Proceeding w/o DiskArb" I guess its just not scanning the drive that has the actual operating system and its going to a blank grey screen. Anyone know what to do? Ive tried using UseKernalCache=No and theres no luck. My build: CPU: AMD FX-8320, 3.5ghz Graphics: Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 1GB MoBo: ASRock 990FX Extreme3 AM3+ Audio: Realtek ALC892
  6. I am new to the hackintosh scene. I used Niresh and installed 10.10.1 to a secondary hard drive. I used the bootflags "/haswell -v ncpi=0x2000" to load the installer. I then copied over the haswell kernel, but the bootflags don't boot the system, I need to use "GraphicsEnabler=No -x -v ncpi=0x2000 nv_disable=1" to boot off the hard drive. The problem with safe mode is it is really slow for me, to the point of being unusable. My specs are: Intel i5 4670k MSI MPower Z87 AMD R9 280X 8GB Ram 250GB HDD When I use GraphicsEnabler=Yes, I get a lot of"xxxx:family specific matching fails" where xxxx is about 10 different codes. Any suggestions on what to try? I am using an intel wifi card which obviously doesnt work, so any files I need to download are done so through windows and transfered over an usb. Thank you in advance.
  7. This is the configuration for my Lenovo Flex 14 touchscreen laptop: - Intel Core i5-4200u @ 1.6 GHz (Haswell) - Nvidia GeForce GT 720m with Intel HD 4400 integrated graphics( optimus) - Intel QM87 chipset - Wlan: Qualcomm Atheros AR956x - Ethernet: Realtek RTL8168 - Audio: Realtek ALC283(i think..) Device ID:(HDAUDIOFUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0283&SUBSYS_17AA3801&REV_10004&157DCDAD&0&0001) - Running Windows 8.1 Single Language while trying to dual boot OSX Mavericks. Now what I have done with no problems: I made the USB for Niresh Distro using windows method. Partitioned my hard drive through a partition manager and formatted it .(Mac OSX Extended Journaled) Booted USB in legacy support mode and booted "Niresh-Mavericks" using flag 'xpcm-free' Customized the menu and installed Niresh distro by Unchecking Graphics Enabler=Yes and Checking IGMPEnabler=Yes Checking Backup kexts for Nvidia Unchecking Hardware Monitor Appication in FakeSMC Rebooting in Niresh bootloader Problems faced and my solution: After rebooting I was getting this kernel panic in verbose mode what i did was to boot in safe mode and deleted kexts IOAudioFamily.kext and VodooHDA.kext from /S/L/E and made backup in a folder in my root. After this i rebooted in verbose mode and ignored kernel cache(-f). A new error related to AppleLMUController was showing frequently (no kernel panics and the screen got stuck after some time.(dont remember what was the last line).In some forums, i read that maybe the error was caused to plugins present in fakesmc.kext. After booting up again in safe mode, I removed the kext file (don't remember its exact name..will edit this post after rebooting and getting the name from my backup folder using -s ) FakeSMCxxxx.kext from the plugins folder (/S/L/E/FakeSMC.kext/Contents/Plugins/ ) and backed it up in the same folder the previous kext files were backed up. After this I booted again in verbose mode only. The AppleLMuController error was still occurring but still the gui got loaded and I was able to access my pendrives and Windows partition but with no sound and wifi. To solve wifi problem(try), I installed Slytherin and selected only checked wifiinjector kext from its options. Current Big problem: After this, i used kext wizard to repair permissions and kernel cache. After it was completed, I was getting info about some random video file when suddenly, kernel panic occured(page fault from its look) with black screen with white text overlapping on some part of my desktop screen and my hackintosh got hung up.(something like this https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Niresh12495/Imgs_move/master/hackintosh/1415134163__dsc_0173.jpg just for reference how it looked like..not the error..replace apple logo with desktop screen) After that, whatever i do i.e whether i boot in safe mode+verbose mode or simply verbose mode it can't get past this screen Note: 1."Resetting IOCatalogue", this line only shows when booting in safe mode after 5-10 minutes. Also, when I rebooted for the first time in verbose mode only, there was some line after waiting for 5-10 minutes "rebuild kernel prebuild.." something like that( sorry don't remember the exact line) Small problems: No Audio Running video files with mplayerx( tried .mp4 and .mkv) shows black screen and running quicktime with .mp4 file shows some -101 error. No wifi Launchpad icons flickers when scrolling, screen tears Chess moves are playable with continuous flickering. EDIT: I did a fresh install and backed up only VoodooHDA.kext and it boots into gui perfectly. Small problems are remaining though. Anyone with suggestions, please feel free to comment on to this post.
  8. Hi dude i just could succeed installing Mavericks os X 10.9.0. Then i upgraded ito 10.9.1 and everything works great! But the only 2 problems i had are: 1) I ONLY can boot Mavericks os X by typing "-x" (safe mode) as boot flag...the problem is that safe mode does not support OpenGL hardware acceleration, which is required to run Final Cut Pro X and other apps. It say " Please reboot normally and try again " My question is: how can i do to boot normally in order to have my OpenGL acceleration. 2) I search from heaven to earth and i can't get my sound devices working i install voodoo, ALC8xxx, everything.. but nothing. The biggest surprise is that my driver is so common! Please help me, i think it could no be working due to the "Safe Mode" but i dont know :'( I Have Realtek® ALC 887 8-Channel High Definition Audio Here my Specs: AMD FX 8120 Bulldozer 3.1Ghz ASUS M5A87 AM3+ ATI Radeon HD 6950 1024Gb Kingston 8Gb 1600Mhz Mavericks os X 10.9.1 I'm From Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina thanks for any reply! Cheers
