I have booted until getting a Intel power management kext error before. never tried to fix that error due to shear frustration.  this error is new and i cannot find any information on it.  Do i  need to format my Harddrive or Decrypt the Windows partition? 


Im Fairly new to hackintoshing so if you can please keep it as noobish as possible it would be great. im good with windows. but new to OSX. 


Should i just give up? or is there something i can do to get this working. I dont have the cash to throw on a legit mac. (Who really Does) 


i tried the bootflags 


AMD -v  

AMD -v Arch=i386

AMD -v -legacy busratio=20 npci=0x3000 arch=i386

and none work.

those are not capital they are all small

amd -v

amd64 -v

amdfx -v 

add cpus=1 with those flags

Example : amd cpus=1 -v
