Mavericks install tutorial request/some questions

Question

iiSeptum    0

Hi all,

 

I'm kind of a n00b on physical hackintoshing, but have done some OS X installs on VMware machines in the past (current one is Mavericks 10.9.1 with the souldevteam premade .vmx image).

First I would like to know if my pre-made (not home built) PC is compatible with the Niresh 10.9 distro and if there will be any problems ,and (if any) how to fix them.

 

Computer specs:

Current OS: Windows 8.1

Processor: Intel Core i7-4770 3.4GHz (3.9GHz with overclock) 8MB cache

HDD: 2TB (7200rpm)

RAM: 16GB DDR3

Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760

Graphics card memory: 1.5GB GDDR5

Motherboard: Intel Z87

 

Secondly I would like to know how to dual-boot the Niresh installation and the Windows 8.1 that came with the PC (preferably NOT deleting the Windows OS as it would take forever to remake it the way I want it). I have read up some info about bootloaders (Chameleon etc.).

All I want is an explanation of HOW to install Niresh distro on my PC and dual-boot the OSes. Link to an already made tutorial is ok. If the computer is incompatible, then I won't risk it unless there is some sort of a fix for a problem that I may encounter.

 

I would be very thankful to someone who explains all this.

 

Thank you for any help in advance!

I'm 100% sure that your PC is compatible with Niresh 10.9, there isn't too much to explain about the dual-boot. First crate a partition directly from Windows using the integrated disks and partitions manager (in this way you will get 2 partitions, one with Windows but obviusly with less space and another empty partition). Then you can start installing OS X, just be sure to boot in AHCI instead of IDE. With the disk utility in the installation program you will format the empty partition in Mac OS Journaled and then you are ready to go and you can install OS X on this partition. Be sure to select Chameleon during the personalize phase before the installation and then just let it install. If the installation will go for the right way at the end of it the PC will reboot and you will see a screen with a red loading line, just press any key and BANG! you can select OS X or Windows. The only thing is that you won't be able to boot Windows in AHCI mode if it was installed in IDE. For getting rid of this problem you need to start the PC in IDE and to change some setting in Windows registry, in this way you will be able to boot Windows and OS X both in AHCI mode. Open regedit and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesstorahci and you should find an entry with a value of 3, change it as 0, save changes and reboot. Then enable AHCI mode and you should be able to boot both OS X and Windows in AHCI. I hope that I helped you  :)

    • 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 com.apple.audio.DriverHelper[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named com.apple.bluetoothaudiod." 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)
