having absolutely No luck with an AMD and intel system,

Recommended Posts

ok the last two days i've trie dto setup a hackintosh, mainly so i can cleanly build an Vanilla Yosemite USB Stick (Windows installer kinda.. Hosed my Mini's HDD and now i need to redo Yosemite on it,) only Spare Systems i have, are

 

  • AMD Phenom II X4 based (lil too flustered and it being 5:30am here. to turn it on just to see exact CPU)
  • (ASUSRock 880GM-LE Mobo)
  • 4GB DDR3-1333 Ram

 

  • AMD APU 7850K
  • Gigabyte GA-F2A88XM-D3H Mobo
  • 6GB Ram

 

  • Intel Core i5-650
  • Gigabyte GA-H555N-USB3 Mobo
  • 4GB Ram


(ram between these is pretty much the same just the APU board has 4 ram slots vs the others only haveing 2. as are the GPUS)
GPUs:

  • Nvidia GTX480
  • XFX Radeon HD5750
  • Radeon RV370
  • Radeon X600
  • Radeon HD3650

(the only other PCI-E card i have is an Nvidia Geforce 6600LE but thats sittin cozy in my PowerPC G5 tower and as far as im aware theres no PC Bios to flash to convert it.)

theres 2 othere systems i havent listed neither, but both arent mine much less my own Main rig which i've tried making work in VMWare onlyt to be so agonizingly Slow i didnt want to attempt what i needed a hackintosh/real imac for)

what would be suggested i use what release in downloads should i use? and recommended of the systems i have to spare, what's the best bootflags to set? its been too far long since i last built a hackintosh and that was back when Snow Leopard was New

Your i5 6th generation can run Sierra & High Sierra

Im not sure about the AMD CPUs but High Sierra is pretty good capable of running them (Im not an AMD Expert), but all your CPUs must support SSE4.1 instruction set to run Sierra or High Sierra, otherwise you will end up with a kernel panic.

If you have dual graphics cards or chipset in same machine, try Sierra instead of High Sierra.

High Sierra for Intel & High Sierra for AMD are separate releases. 

but you can try the AMD version with Intel machines.

Properly setup BIOS before booting your Hackintosh

You have to boot from these and post picture of your problem, without a problem i can't debug

thats a First gen i5 (the i5 650) but the APU? i'll give Sierra a try.  the last intel system i dug out one of the oddball Dual Core Pentiums,  the Legacy boot installer menu for Chamelion just halts w/ " :" or "/" mid"spin" i'll update w/ screenshots in alil while (i'll grab Sierra and while the USB stick's being written to going to get dinner here started as its atm of this post, 6:24PM EST)

@CaelThunderwing If that is a 1st gen, you should go with Mavericks Zone or Yosemite Zone

Mavericks recommended. I though that was a 6th gen

i'll give Mavericks a shot w/ that one, tried Serria on the APU based System,  and i cant shake this no matter what i try,

whelp got something somewhere finally with Mavericks and the I5 system, the offical createmedia tool goes to erasing my disk 0%....10%... gives me an error (1, 0) hopefully some tips while i'm snoozing come along BUT its working almost to a tee.

(No Sound No Networking, and i only get in to Desktop if i pass along -x so i think i need nvidia drivers for tthe GPU i selected for the temp-build (EVGA Nvidia GTX 480) and USB is Weird, any port will host a USB Disk Just fine but only ports that actively repond to K&M is my USB3.0 ports, if i can get all 4 issues solved,  i'll make this dual boot w/ windows to give the teeny system a purpose :D its a really Small motherboard  like POS System small.  here's a image of it (you can see somewhat in the background my G4 Quicksilver)
