Will My System Run Yosemite?
2 2

Question

Hi,

I have an Zoostorm Desktop PC with the following specs:

  • Motherboard A55MX
  • BIOS American Megatrends Inc Version B73F1P02
  • AMD A8-3870 3GHz Quad Core Processor with built in AMD Radeon 6550D graphics
  • 8GB DDR3 RAM
  • 320GB system HD with 1TB extra hard drive.
  • 2GB AMD Radeon HD6670 Graphic Card
I would like to try the MAC OSX on this machine but I am not sure if my system comes under the compatibility. I would like to hear your thoughts.

Thanks in advance. :):)

Hi,

did you after install finished, restart the installer usb stick and move the kernel ?? 

don´t think so ;) 

 

 

open terminal from installer usb

enter: 

 

ls /Volumes  will show you name of devices 

 

cp -/Volumes/"Image Volume"/amd64 /Volumes/"Mac OS"/System/Library/Kernels/kernel

rm -rf /Volumes/"Mac OS"/System/Library/Caches

kextcache -/Volumes/"Mac OS"

 

Image Volume is the Volume that the Stick have for me 

/amd64 is the kernel that we used to copy into kernel folder

Mac OS is the name you have installed your Hackintosh System for me personal OSX  :)

Sorry, I am lost. Do I have to move the kernels before the installation or after?

How do you open the terminal? I can see terminal in utility Menu? Is this the one?

Okay, I open the terminal and follow all the commands mentioned above. Below is the photo showing commands I used. Let me know if I doing it this the right way.347bhg1.jpg

What should I do next after all the commands? I did close the terminal and restarted the pc and try to run the maxosx, which is already installed on my hard drive. I used the same boot flags which I used in the installer. And the following error comes up.2ex4nkh.jpg And if I just press enter on the mac osx hard drive. My pc restart

ls /Volumes  will show you name of devices 

cp -/Volumes/"Image Volume"/amd64 /Volumes/"Mac OS"/System/Library/Kernels/kernel

rm -rf /Volumes/"Mac OS"/System/Library/Caches

kextcache -/Volumes/"Mac OS"

 

Image Volume is the Volume that the Stick have for me 

/amd64 is the kernel that we used to copy into kernel folder

Mac OS is the name you have installed your Hackintosh System for me personal OSX  :)

 

You are not typing in the commands correctly. Look at the spaces closely, in the commands you typed in they were often missing which caused errors.

 

Additionally in your cp  command you used "yosemite" where you should have used "Image Volume". As you can see from the ls /Volumes command there is nothing named Yosemite.

 

So basically, your copy command failed because you used the the wrong volume name and did not put a space between the two file paths.

 

Your remove command failed because you did not put a space between -rf and the file path to remove.

 

The kextcache command initially failed because you did not put a space between the -u flag the file path. Eventually you fixed the spacing issue but you also  changed the file path which you should not have done.

 

Hope this helps, good luck!

After following all the commands my hard drive does not show up anymore. The other two hard drives are showing up normally. I decided to change the ports on the motherboard but it is still doing the same. Please help me out. I have been trying to install this for the past two weeks but no success so far.
