Need Help Please. AMD A8 APU

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, i've been working on installing Mavericks on my hp envy touch smart 15-j009wm. I have tried every boot flag and kernel i can think of. All i get is an instant reboot after it runs just a few lines. 

Specs:

 

AMD A8-5550m

Radeon HD 8550g graphics

8gb Ram

 

Let me know anything else you need. May donate with paypal if someone can help me get it running.

Wow man that helped a lot. I'm at least getting somewhere now. I now get stuck on (of course) "still waiting for root device" so I'm trying to figure that out. My bios doesn't have an ahci option but from researching I found out that it is supposed to be enabled by default. I tried adding the flags ahcidisk=8 and debug=8 and I get this: "see attached"

Find in your BIOS and change to AHCI, then you can try with -x (Safe Mode):

 

amd npci=0x3000 -v -x

 

or try:

 

amd npci=0x3000 USBBusFix=Yes -v -x

 

or:

 

amd npci=0x3000 USBBusFix=Yes PCIRootUID=1 -v -x

 

if not run, change to PCIRootUID=0

 

Regards.

Well man i finally managed to enaBLE ahci. the original problem was that my bios didnt have that option so i had to run an efi shell at bootup and run setup_0x39 0x0 to change it. so after booting to niresh again and adding the flags i GOT A LOT FURTHER!! but i got stuck somewhere else;/ after reboot now im just getting stuck at the same waiting for root device?! But i can confirm that ahci is enabled

    • 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
      RAM
