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 The only distro that works so far on this laptop is iAtkos 10.6.3, but that's just too outdated!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:

    • @svpsl08 Your images don't work and post your specs as text don't share images, Have you tried installing High Sierra?

    • Hey guys, this is my first post on this forum.   I've installed High Sierra on my box.   These are my settings:   Intel Core i5 3570k (Intel HD 4000) MSI Z77A-G41 8GB RAM 120GB SSD + 1TB HDD   I'm using an HDMI cable with a monitor resolution 1920x1080   Everything is working fine... I've got my LAN working after installing some kexts.   But now I can't have my VGA working properly (some glitches and slowdowns).   I've tried alot of things that I've found on the internet, like changing config.plist on Clover with some different settings. But nothing worked for me... even youtube videos showing how to get it to work...   Can you guys help me please?   Thanks!

    • Hi You might use Apple Disk Utility to clone the disk. May be you must  write a disk image of your Startup disk first. Carbon CopyCloner will do it too ( EVEN IF THE DISK IS IN USE). Then you must install Clover on the Disk and copy the contents of the efi Partition of your startup dist to the Clone. Voila thats it.
