New Hackintosh User In Need Of Help with Compatibility etc.

Recommended Posts

I keep trying to install OS X 10.9 Mavericks with Niresh Installation but can't get it to work properly.

cpu: i5 3570k ivy bridge

Gpu: Radeon HD 7970

Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77 -V

Ram: Viper 1800x4gig =16gig total

SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 500Gig

Wifi: AsUS n66 USB

I don't really know what to check or uncheck on the "Custom" installation menu.

I don't know if I have to insert flags for compatibility issues.

Thanks for the help in advance!

There are few things that you must make sure in BIOS before you start Hackintoshing.

 

 

1. Make sure SATA mode of Hard Disk is set to AHCI instead of IDE.

2. Set BIOS Mode to Legacy from EFI/UEFI.
3.
Enable HPET and set its value to “64” in BIOS.

4. Enable Virtualization in BIOS. (Some guides say disable, both cases worked for me) 

5. Enable USB Legacy.
6. Make your First Boot Device to USB HDD.
7. Make sure you unplug all other USB Devices and other Internal Hard Drives. 

 

You haven't explained what you did so far and what are the errors you are getting.

 

Be precise and explain step by step. Then it will be easy for the community to find mistakes.

 

As a start, try these boot flags

 

-v GraphicsEnabler=No PCIRootUID=1 npci=0x2000

 

Check the Mavericks Installation Guide by Niresh in this website and check Mac Breakers guide on how to Install Niresh Mavericks.

 

http://www.macbreaker.com/2014/01/install-osx-mavericks-on-pc-with-niresh.html

 

Try these out and tell us what happens. Incase of errors, try to take some clear photos of your screen and post it here.

You didn't tell us what steps you have done so far, or what flags you have used.

 

Here is what you must do,

 

You will need to remove the AppleIntelHD* and AppleIntelF* kexts from the installation on the hard drive.
 
You can do this from single user mode (-s).
 
Boot using the flag " -s " from your Mavericks Installation instead of your USB (Niresh-Mavericks)
 
Now you will enter the Single User Mode.
 
When you see the prompt "root:", type these commands one by one and press Enter. 
 
* Type: mount -uw /
 
* Type: cd /System/Library/Extensions
 
* Type : mkdir intel_back
 
* Type: mv AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelF* intel_back/
 
* Type: touch ../Extension
 
* Type: reboot
 
After rebooting, boot from Mavericks Installation using the flags you earlier used. And let us know the result.

You are welcome...

 

For the drivers part, download Chameleon Wizard (not boot loader) in this website and open it.

 

Select Builtin and select Boot0hfs and click install.

 

And in the second tab (org.chameleon.Boot.plist) select the boot flags you used and save it.

 

You don't have to use -s flag anymore...

 

Post a screen shot of your remaining problems.

Oh oh...!!!

 

The updates has to be done in a particular manner....

 

I believe you have just updated using the 10.9.5 update.dmg file.....

 

I'l post the step by step process to update your hackintosh, but I'm afraid you have messed up your installation...

 

I would recommend you to do a clean install and set your hackintosh as it were before the update...

 

You might be able to make it work with out reinstalling, but to be on the safe side do a clean Install...

    • Has anyone managed to run the atheros 9485 run on Mojave? I even managed to make him recognize, but he can not find any network.
    • Hello everyone  I have installed High Sierra and updated to 10.13.6 before installing nVidea web drivers. After everything was installed (Kexts and the driver) everything booted fine. Graphics worked perfectly. My onboard USB did not work but I have some generic NEC USB 2.0 card that works fine. After a reboot later in the day, I had a weird kernel panic. It spit out strings no longer than 30 charters and then proceeded to reboot. I have not seen this type of panic . This happened when using the onboard USB 3.0 controller but was fixed by removing the device. But now I'm not sure what caused this. I have reinstalled about 15 times already. Here are my specs: ASUS B150 Plus D3 Intel Pentium G4400 ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1050 2GB WD Blue 500GB HDD 8GB Ram Some generic wireless card (That works) Thanks -T
