To update or not to update.

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

So have been out of the hackintosh game for a while now (was using a hackintosh back when OSX 10.5 came out) and have just recently got back on the band wagon. I have installed and am up and running with Niresh Sierra. Every thing seems good and stable, as of today my machine has been running for about a week and a half with no issues. The only problem i had in the beginning was video with a Nvidia GT710 but after installing the NVIDIA web driver  i have dual screens and nice smooth operating system.


My question is i been wondering about updates. I used to be able to update through system update sometimes it would work sometimes it would cause issues. Whats the procedure here now? I have requests to update poping up now and have tried to update and have had to reinstall from scratch. Can we use the apple update or is there another method of performing updates.

I also notice that niresh asked after install if it wanted me to fix app store (saying that this could not be undone) what is with that? Is that just a fix that allows us on the app store or something else.?


Cheers and thanks for the help and the great skillz.


By the way:

Installed OS: MacOS Sierra Zone

Motherboard: Asrock X85 xtreme

CPU: i7 920 

Nvidia GT710

    • Oh, thank you but in the meantime I thought again and have installed High Sierra instead. It works just fine, put a camera, bluetooth, wifi, all working OK. I only have to solve a little problem when doing restart it freezes but after shutdown it comes up good! I have also Win7 on same mbr disk and I start with the installation usb but I think go over to EasyBCD to make a smoother boot. If your experienced I would appreciate very much any hints for helping me in this direction.

    • Hi, i am struggling with installation telling me that it needs less than one minute for eternity. in log it shows that "./postinstall: Using AMD Bronya Kernel" process is running, but 4 hours is too long for "Less than a minute" don't you think ;).    Please help me, i tried to install Mac OS on Intel and AMD processor PC, same problem.  
    • Hola, generalmente se postea en ingles.   Podrias dejar las especificaciones de tu tarjeta madre, por ejemplo: RAM PROCESADOR GPU ETC   Ademas de los componentes que tienes instalados... tengo una pregunta para ti.   Ya comprobaste la compatibilidad de tu ordenador con el sistema operativo?
