About This File

The latest kernel, which i'm posting here as amd_kernel, was built by Andy Vandjick, but that wouldn't be possible without the amazing work by Sinetek (who made the first ssse3 emulator ever, enabling non FX-series CPUs to run OSX in 64-bit kernel mode), R:A:W:x86, Bronzovka (who made Lion on AMD possible) and the Voodoo team. Many thanks to them all!

The correct boot flags to run the kernel are amd_kernel arch=x86_64. FX-series users must also add the correct busratio. The kernel is not working properly with nVidia graphics (and some ATI ones), so their users must also either add -x (safe mode) boot flag or disable GeforceGA.plugin and GLDriver.bundle in System/Library/Extensions.

FX users may also try the 12.0 AMD kernel by sinetek, which is confirmed to be working nicely with newer AMD CPUs (Bulldozer and Piledriver chips). Bad news are that, since it's a 12.0 (10.8.0) kernel, it won't work with 10.8.2 without mods; specifically, it's necessary replacing the 10.8.2 AppleFileSystemDriver.kext, IOACPIFamily.kext and perhaps AppleACPIPlatform.kext by the 10.8.0 versions of each one.

Good luck to all and please post feedback. The sources are also included for anyone wanting to build the kernel from the sources, or help improve it - there's still a lot of work to do.

        Hackintosh Yosemite no PC AMD
        AMD atlhon 64x2 dual core 2.3 ghz, ddr2 3ghz, nvidia gforce 9500 GT. Estou tentando emular o hackintosh Yosemite no meu Windows 10, com o wmware. Consigo chegar até a parte onde depois de digitar o flag, em sua primeira tela preta, logo após inicia o carregamento com a tela da maçã do hackintosh zone vermelha, onde fica carregando sem fim, nunca termina, já deixei um dia inteiro e não sai daí. Será mesmo que não há alguma configuração que possa burlar isso? Essa é uma tarefa das mais impossíveis, mas acho que tem solução. Alguém se arrisca ?
