Hackintosh Yosemite not installing at all

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone, i'm having big trouble in installing Yosemite-Zone on my PC.

I have Acer Aspire E 15 start (specification: Processor- Intel Pentium quad core processor N3540 2.66GHz; Graphics-Intel HD Graphics; RAM-4GB; HDD:500gb)

I made bootable usb of 16 gb using TransMac using Yosemite-Zone.dmg. It restored correctly but it is not recognized at boot time. It is not recognized in UEFI boot mode, then i tried Legacy mode , it recognized but when i press  enter on the device it says "no bootable media found".

I tried in different usb ports , differrent usbs , UEFI and Legacy mode , Disabled Seure Boot,  used transmac and powerISO , i also tried to boot usb in different PC too sill not working. i also tried with .dmg file and .iso files , still not working Yosemite-Zone.

That is because you can not boot any other OS on these laptops than Windows (Legacy/UEFI) or Linux. I had the same error. At some point I managed to boot into Clover, but as soon as I selected the macOS installation entry, the laptop just rebooted. I believe there's a security in these BIOSes which only allows certain filesystems and partition tables to boot. So instead I installed a light-weight Linux distro on it and installed Yosemite in VMWare.

    • Hi guys I've installed Yosemite Zone 10.10.1 on my PC who has the following specs: CPU: FX-8850 GPU: R7 260X MOBO: 990FXAUD3 REV 4.0

      I installed yosemite zone 10.10.1 without any problem and successfully installed the ethernet drivers with the PKG i found in the downloads section of hackintosh zone, I wanted to update to 10.10.5 to install the R7 260X drivers which i can download from the site but now when i enter my bootflags: npci=0x2000 and PCIRootUID=1 and I choose my ssd from chameleon bootloader it boots up and I can see it starts to load stuff when i put -v  but then the screen goes black and the system just reboots. Pls tell me how to fix thanks in advance.
    • Hi DAFFY,   Yes. High Sierra is actually installed on a Z270-F from Asus ROG. Everything's good with it.
    • Dear Community,   First of all I would like to apologise for my horrible English knowledge.   Well, I have one main problem with my hackintosh.   The first and most annoying problem is gIOScreenLockState 3. I've just tried some kexts but still this problem. Now, if I start without -v I just get black screen.   Thanks for reading,   TheXeno      
    • Can anyone specify the best or minimum NVidia GPU for Yosemite OS? Can someone list it? including the best GPU that can be supported with the nvidia web drivers. Does GT730 is supported? I only have DDR3 slot for my motherboard.
    • Thank you for your immediate response :)
