Almost Perfect - Amd FX-6300, ATI HD 5450 10.9.4

Recommended Posts

OS: 10.9.3 & Windows 8.1 Pro

Motherboard: msi 970a-g46

CPU: 3.5 GHz (4.1 GHz OCG) AMD FX-6300 Black Edition

RAM: 12GB 2 types not sure off hand.

Graphics: MSI Nvidia GeForce GT 610 2048GB(main) and Saphire ATI Radeon HD 5450 1024GB(sub)

 

I got my build working pretty well besides the Audio card to fix that. The R7 card did not have any kext support which you all know so im using a 1g 5450 and it works well enough with support but had some problems after the 10.9.3 update with white screens.

 

Install instructions: 

1. I installed 10.9 using niresh's 10.9 install. I booted using amdfx -v (https://www.hackintoshzone.com/files/file/75-niresh-mavericks-for-intel-and-amd/)

2. I disabled the GraphicsEnabler=Yes and then also selected 10.8.1 AppleACPIPlatform.kext to solve a booting problem with it after a previous installation.

3. After install I booted using the normal boot flags already added by the install but had to solve my power management situation using the instructions on the niresh 10.9 install page. After that i rebooted and booted in as normal.

4. I used MultiBeast to install an updated chimaera boot loader.

5. I installed my 5450 kext but ill skip this for now to tell you what i did in 10.9.3 which will still work at this point.

6. I downloaded the 10.9.3 Combo Update and installed it. I moved the kext files from niresh's 10.9.3 kernel into my extensions using the kext wizard installed during setup of the install when booted in first. I then copied the kernel from the files into my root folder. I then repaired the permissions using kext wizard.

7. Unlike what others said after my update it didn't work right away since it installs things after. I entered into a second install of a working 10.9 I had to do this update before using my main install. I added the files into the places like before and then repaired the permissions again. I then rebooted into my main install again and it booted just fine. You can also use the install usb and use the terminal to do what i did above if needed I can provide commands to use.

8. I logged in and installed these (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/245-ati-hd-5450-1093/) kexts for my HD 5450. I did not use the boot flags recommend since they didn't work nor were something to help the white screen they actually caused the card to send no signal to the monitors. I did though add GraphicsEnabler=No since that was instructed here http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/HCL_10.9.3 after that i also did add PCIRootUID=1 to the boot flags in /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist since it was also recommended. To solve the white screen problem I installed these kexts (https://mega.co.nz/#!Fl0FEIYA!XhVnExNW1KNQGWLafRVPZ8pRnsntdujomrDMN0E2lLc) after that it solved the white screen. I will say i was able to boot with full resolution support in safe mood but no CE/CI.

9. After doing all of that I also had to to fix my Apple App Store login problem so i used this video to fix that https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=niU8tsQ_S8o

 

I updated my main card to a Nvidia GeForce GT 610 2048GB card and moved my 5450 to my sub. The GT 610 was supported out of the box by apple so i had to do nothing which was nice and gives a full run down. Now im using 3 screens. my 1080p tv as my main connected to the 610 by HDMI along with my other display using VGA at 16:9. the third display also a 16:9 using DVI connected to the smaller card.

 

PS: iMessage and FaceTime do not work yet but ill be working on that.

Hope this helps someone too and Ill take pictures of my computer for you if you want!

This build also works with 10.9.4 now and it supports the preview app which i did have problems with in the last update. Just download the combo update for 10.9.4 and do the same steps as you did to update to 10.9.3

I posted it in the the space where i would have had it and also below this. I updated my specs with a new graphics card so check it out. the card was only $51 at the shop so if you want a good one that is OTB supported then get that i like it so far.

I have the Gigabyte Ga-78lmt-USB3 with the fx6300 (Not Overclocked) 8GB 1600mhz Ram Geforce GTX650 and a Corsair 120gb SSD.

I booted from USB stick with the /amd npci=0x2000 boot flag and it was buttery smooth from there on. See vid below:

Sorry for the late reply only just checked the forum. 

 

Have you you enabled kernel caching? Seriously speeds up booting.

    • 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
      RAM
          8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 668MHz (9-9-9-24)
      Motherboard

          1023MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti (NVIDIA)    31 °C
