Problems installing Mavericks on laptop

Recommended Posts

Hi there, 


I have two machines: a desktop and a laptop. My desktop (AMD FX-8120) works fine with hackintosh, but my laptop (HP Pavilion dv6-6b15ed, AMD A8-3510MX) has quite a lot of problems. Whatever I do, I cannot succeed to install Niresh's OS X Mavericks. Sometimes kernel panics, sometimes it does just nothing. I have tried every kernel and a lot of boot flags, so I am out of ideas now. I have also tried to install Mountain Lion, but no success. The only distro that works so far on this laptop is iAtkos 10.6.3, but that's just too outdated! If someone could help me installing Mavericks on my laptop, that would be great!

amdfx -v does give me some result, but it hangs on 'SMC::smcInitHelper ERROR: MMIO regMap == NULL - fall back to old SMC mode'. I googled this one, and added the boot flags 'USBBusFix=Yes' and 'npci=0x2000'. That gets me a little further, but now it freezes on the message 'warning: invalid ker'... It doesn't even succeed to complete the error.

Update: i tried adding -f to the above boot flags, I do now get the complete error, followed by a kernel panic: https://www.dropbox.com/s/4n0bse0izq5lhu7/20140427_073516.jpg

    • @riddlemeright You have not posted any pictures regarding ACPI Error, without pictures I can not debug Also you need to post your full hardware specs
    • @Douglas Dreer use ATH9KFixup.kext with Lilu.kext also you need to add -ath9485 as boot-flag in clover config
    • @tdtech959 Without any pictures of kernel panic it is really hard to debug, but anyhow have you installed whatevergreen.kext with lilu.kext   i had a weird kernel panic when my onboard graphics was turned on, I was able to select external graphics card via BIOS settings as default. are you sure if the USB is the actual problem.
    • Has anyone managed to run the atheros 9485 run on Mojave? I even managed to make it recognize, but it can not find any network.
    • Hello everyone  I have installed High Sierra and updated to 10.13.6 before installing nVidea web drivers. After everything was installed (Kexts and the driver) everything booted fine. Graphics worked perfectly. My onboard USB did not work but I have some generic NEC USB 2.0 card that works fine. After a reboot later in the day, I had a weird kernel panic. It spit out strings no longer than 30 charters and then proceeded to reboot. I have not seen this type of panic . This happened when using the onboard USB 3.0 controller but was fixed by removing the device. But now I'm not sure what caused this. I have reinstalled about 15 times already. Here are my specs: ASUS B150 Plus D3 Intel Pentium G4400 ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1050 2GB WD Blue 500GB HDD 8GB Ram Some generic wireless card (That works) Thanks -T
