    • Help with Intel G530 graphics @Niresh I need your help please! On my desktop computer I have an Asrock H61M-VS mobo with Intel Celeron G530 CPU and integrated graphics. The only successful Hackintosh installation I’ve ever done is the one with your Sierra distro 10.12.3 in which graphics works perfectly. I wanted to ask you what did you put in your distro to make also G530 integrated graphics working. With every other way to install Hackintosh on a pc I’m unable to get to the installer as I’m stuck in verbose mode due to unsupported graphics. Please answer me, thank you so much!
    • Yes truely its possible to upgrade its kinda hard todo because if you have AMD Proccessor you need to wait until niresh releases a new hackintosh distro. and then make a backupwith time machine and install the newer mac from usb and then you will be asked to have your old data back from windows machine or from your old mac version which if you choose from mac all data will be copied to your new sierra from yosemite so you don't need to lose any data or backup everything on a different usb drive and then use time machine to recover files from usb if its possible because i never use time machine. If you don't want to recover any data then just click on configure as new mac. And it is safe to download app store updates if you have a good intel processor if you have amd you need to use a custom kernel which somebody has patched.   Just search on google with this search term: (example) hackintosh sierra amd patched kernel update 10.12.6 is the latest or you want to update yosemite to 10.10.5 search for update patched kernels amd 10.10.5   https://www.google.nl/search?q=amd+kernel+patched+hackintosh+yosemite+10.10.5&source=lnms&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiv5teI6ZzVAhUMmBoKHaHrAkQQ_AUICSgA&biw=1920&bih=925&dpr=1 Here is the search term i already have for you if its only what you need the search term i used =: amd kernel patched hackintosh yosemite 10.10.5 Or find on youtube a good video how to upgrade a hackintosh yosemite to sierra

[Success] AsRock Z87, i5-4670k, 650Ti OC [MultiBoot]

3 posts in this topic

Here are my PCs specs. Keep in mind it wasn't built for Hackintoshing.


MOBO: AsRock Z87M Pro4

CPU  : Intel Core i5-4670K @ 3.4GHz

RAM  : 4GB DDR3 1333MHz A-Data [x2]

GPU  : MSI GTX 650Ti BOOST [ Forum Thread ]

PSU  : 650W Chieftec PSU non-module.


I installed OSX on a HDD partition with every internal drive d/c-ed. Selecting boot device upon startup is my multi-boot method of choice. I didn't want to risk and screw-up my GRUB.


Everything works OOB after installation, only couple small problems I have are:


1. Microphone is awfully low. Skype calls are impossible - other side can barely hear me even when I'm screaming. I know how to turn the volume up, but I think it's either a kext issue, or a Skype problem. I'll try another voice-chat app when I get home and report back about it. Else I'm thinking about switching Audio chip), that was broken down into 2 kexts (Using Kext wizzard) - installed, rebooted - and it's better than ever!


2. I need my USB drive to boot OSX - I still haven't got a workaround for that one. If anyone has a quick guide about how to not use the USB to boot OSX after install - please let me know.

FIXED I totally messed up my Bootloader, so I re-installed OSX from scratch and it's booting fine now. Only thing is I have to type "GraphicsEnabler=No" everytime I boot - still haven't gotten passed this.

EDIT:  Added <key>GraphicsEnabler</key><String>No</String> to the .plist file - all is working as it should be!


Graphcis Acceleration appears to be working quite fine. I played some League of Legends last night - it was running really smooth. Still haven't tried anything else, but "LoL" is a pretty intense game so I'm guessing no issues there.



Some thoughts and insights


I've put up together a $1100 machine and I have to say - I truly believe if I weren't booting from a HDD it would be a dream. It runs perfectly, considering I'm booting from a Hard drive though. I almost never see the "umbrella" circle going round. I'd say even though I never followed any "Hackintosh buyers guide" Niresh's build has worked perfectly for me.

all 4 cores active perfectly? or have you got crashes and need to use only one core (boot with cpus=1)??2

thanks for answering

All 4 cores active. After adding GraphicsEnabler=No to the .plist file everything works good.


I'm not really sure if the CPU scales down, though. I think it's just always @ 3,4GHz



Keep in mind this was a while ago and it was OSX 10.9.2 - I sold the machine, because I moved to a different country to study and I don't have it anymore, so I can't give you any additional information. Anyway, as far as I know this CPU model is natively supported so there shouldn't be any problems.
