Need Help With Maverick Boot [AMD Phenom | NVidia Geforce 210]

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone, I've been trying to set up a Hackintosh so I can start developing IOS apps. I started with Mountain Lion (10.8.5) . All failed when trying to boot, I didn't even get to the installer screen. So I downloaded Mavericks (10.9.0) and wrote it to a USB as bootable. I get to the boot screen and this is what I've tried so far, and the resulting errors:


BootFlags  :   Error


Nothing:         Reboot


amd -v,

amd -v -x,

amd -v -x -f,

amd -v npci=0x2000:        Stuck at [PCI Configuration Begin]



amd -v npci=0x3000,

amd -v USBBusFix=Yes,

amd -v npci=0x3000 USBBusFix=Yes,      Stuck at SMC Successfully Initialized


and a long list of other combinations including GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No, amd64 instead of amd, etc.



I've searched hundreds of forums, and everything I've tried results in one of those three errors. I'd even be happy to see it stuck on the bootlogo at least  :( .

What I haven't tried is modifying any kernel or 'kext' file etc. I only have windows system available right now.

Anyway here are my system specs:


CPU: AMD Phenom 9500 x4 ~2.2GHz   (Please mention if this isn't supported. It's actually faster than it looks though, runs heavy apps quite fine)


Graphics Card: ASUS NVidia GeForce 210




Motherboard: MCP61PM-HM (Nettle3)



Thanks in advance for any help  :unsure:


EDIT: So I was about to attempt the .kext thing when I realised I can't even view the files in TransMac, have a look: nv6zib.png

type amd64 npci=0x3000 -v  and wait for about 5minutes, sometimes look like it is stucked but continue after minute or two. If doesnt help then try to download and put some other kernel, this is very good kernel for my phenom II https://www.sendspace.com/file/xzvb1d and of course be sure that everything in ur bios is set like it should be, sory for bad english ;

    • I get this message no matter what I do, I've tried changing my SMBIOS to a newer model to no avail. Anyone no how to get the second install boot to work?
    • This is my first time doing Hackintosh. I've several other machines running Mac using UniBeast and Multi beast. I wanted to try Hackintosh Vanilla. So far, no luck. I followed the Guide and MacPwn Mojave Guide. 
    • Hello! I wanted to install MacOS High Sierra, but the SSD does not appear in Disk Manager. I have a Samsung Pro 840 250GB. Is there a Driver for Intel Gigabit 82579LM Network LAN for MacOS High Sierra?
    • This is my very first post and have looked around the forums to my question but I wasn't able to find the exact specifics that I need. This is my very first windows/mac dual boot project. I chose to attempt high sierra and I hope I am posting in the correct area. High Sierra seemed to be the newest that is possibly more stable than Mojave so I chose that. I'm reaching out to the more advanced builders and experienced people. I'm currently running Win 10 as of now and bought a separate SSD to install a macOS on. Before I invest time and energy into this. I'm wanting to get the best recommendations on what OS I should choose , if my hardware will be up for the task and my best plan of attack. I'll be honest I'm not ready to bang my head on the keyboard for hours. I've been there and done that.  My hardware was some of the best at its time in 2011 and I'm not 100% confident it will work with a more up to date macOS I'm also concerned about drivers for my GPU.  All input is welcomed   Here are my current specs:   CPU
          Intel Core i7 2600 @ 3.40GHz    28 °C
          Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology
          8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 668MHz (9-9-9-24)
          ASUSTeK Computer INC. CG8350 (LGA1155)    26 °C
