:FIX/GUIDE: AMD Stuck At Grey/White Screen With Spinning Beachball :FIX/GUIDE:

Question

heres a list all the parts i have

PROCESSOR: AMD 8350 BOX PROCESSOR ------ AMD 8350 TRAY PROCESSOR

MOTHERBOARD: ASUS M5A97 EVO R2.0 ---- GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD3

GRAPHICS CARD: GIGABYTE 2GB ATI HD 7870 ----- 2x 1GB XFX HD 5770

RAM: 24gb CORSAIR VENGENCE 1816MHZ DDR3 ------ 32GB GSKILL ARIES 1600MHZ DDR3


THIS IS NOW SOLVED  :)  :)  :)  :)

first of all thanks everyone ( @Simone Rucci, @Niresh) who helped on this post i couldn't have made this happen without your help this will solve you beach ball spinning infinite grey/white screen crap ok i got this working the procedure is as follows on two different boards

asus m5a97 evo r2.0

gigabyte 990fxa-ud3

and two different graphics cards

gigabyte ati hd 79870 2gb

xfx hd5770

my processor is a amd fx 8350
32gb ddr3 gskill ram

I AM ALSO USING GPT

i can now easily play might and magic x legacy on full graphics settings

ok i used a certain kernel and the stock graphics drivers if you wish to change that it may or may not work

ok procedure you now need to have kext wizard handy

you need to head over to here for the AMD kernel

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_id=157955

inside that file is the kernel and the system.kext

now you need to go over to here to grab the other two kext IOPCIFamily.kext + AppleACPIPlatform.kext for yosemite

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/354-amd-replace-kext-for-yosemite/


you will also need amd webkit patch

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_id=154087

now i want you to place all kext on the desktop
if you have backed up your graphics drivers during or after the install you should be able to boot with just

npci=0x2000 PCIRootUID=1 -v

if not you will also need to add

-f -x

now once you are at your desktop you need to move the kernel over to System/Library/Kernels
so rename your original kernel to kernel.backup1 then overwrite it with the new one

you will then open up kext wizard and use the install pane to install

system.kext
IOPCIFamily.kext
AppleACPIPlatform.kext
(also if you backed up your graphics drivers nows the time to reinstall them)

then i want you to keep kext wizard open and install the amd webkit patch after installation has finished go back to kext wizard and repair permissions (click both boxes on the bottom half)

then reboot some of you still may have to use -v and -f

i have mine booting with full acceleration
without -f -v

enjoy

I will be attemping this method right now starting with a FRESH partiton & installation of yosemite 10.10.1 (hackintosh zone dmg).

Just for a heads up because I have a feeling I will be back with more errors (been at this for 2 1/2 days STRAIGHT; attempted EVERY boot flag...with nothing but a grey screen and a death wheel)

My PC specs are:

Processor: AMD FX -6300 3.50GHz

GPU: AMD Sapphire R7 270x 2GB

Board: Gigabyte 970A-UD3P (9 Series)

HDD: 1TB (WIN10) & 250GB (Mac OSX Yosemite 10.10.1; when finished installing)

RAM: 8GB DDR3

BIOS: UEFI DaulBIOS

Audio: Realtek High Def. Audio Ver. 6.0.1.7553

Bootloader: Chameleon (when finished installing yosemite 10.10.1)

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