Possible Hackintosh with this set-up?

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

 

I've been hackintosh'ing some PC's and with success. But now I'd like to hackintosh a small media PC. A Packard Bell iMedia X4623 with the following specs:

  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300
  • GPU: GeForce G 210M
  • RAM: 4GB

Now, obviously I've already tried it with a Yosemite Zone but so far no luck. 

I wonder if this is because of the specs of the PC why it won't boot. The boot flags I've been using:

  1. (none)
  2. -v
  3. -v -x
  4. -v -x -f -F
  5. -v -x GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No
  6. PCIRootUID=1
  7. npci=0x3000
  8. USBBusFix=Yes
  9. And also some combined. Can't remember what all.

And yes, my BIOS is set up to AHCI. 

 

Any idea's and suggestions I can use?

org.chameleon.Boot.plist

Nope, didn't work. I also tried npci=0x3000.

 

Here are the results:
