Mavericks working on Samsung laptop but with issues


Macken    0

Hi, this is my first post and I do have Mavericks working on my Samsung laptop but there are issues both major and minor. I do have MultiBeast (which I haven't tried yet) and I'm hoping somebody will help me out with either some downloads that I require or if I can fix my issues with MultiBeast. 


First Issue (Major): No wireless internet. Needless to say this is necessary and I'd really like to get this going. As things stand now I'll have to download what I need on my main computer and transfer the files to a USB stick. I'd like to get this running before anything else.


Second Issue (Minor-ish): Graphics. Right now things are set up so that Mavericks is using the "Stretch To Fit" option and while it doesn't look *too* bad, it doesn't look very good either. I only have one resolution listed, 1024X768, and my screens native resolution is 1600X900. From searching I've seen that there's a free app in the Mac App Store which adds additional resolutions but of course I can't download this app until I get working wireless internet. Also, graphics related I have an AMD graphics card in this laptop and I'd like to get that working as well. I'll be posting a screenshot I took from the System Info program that shows the components that are on my laptop.


Third Issue (Minor): The mouse cursor is a lot less "zippy" in Mavericks than it is on Windows 7. (I'm dual booting). I did download the Mac drivers for my particular mouse but if there's some way to speed up the mouse cursor let me know. I'll probably still install the drivers anyway as there's a particular setting I like. 


Fourth Issue (Minor-ish): Dual booting. I've found that I always have to have the DVD of the Mavericks ISO in the drive if I want to boot between Windows 7 and Mavericks. If there's a way to do this without leaving the DVD in, please let me know. 


Fifth Issue (Minor): The computer that I'm running Mavericks on is, as I mentioned, a laptop but when I go to the "About this Mac" window and check out the specs I'm shown a picture of a tower computer instead of a Mac Book or Mac Book Pro laptop. I know this is pretty minor but how do I get the picture of the laptop to show up?  :unsure:


Okay so those are all the issues I'm having. My first priority is getting wireless internet running but obviously I'd like to get everything running properly fairly soon. I've attached a screenshot from the System Info program. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.  :)

BTW I've solved the problems with the slow mouse cursor. I looked in the "Mouse" settings and the default was set at a slower speed. I'd still like to get my 4 other issues solved especially getting the wireless internet working. Thanks.

    • Hey!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named" repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)

    • Hello guys!
