Installing mavericks on virtualbox

Question

Dan389573    0

My PC has an AMD FX 6300 CPU

 

I'm using virtualbox 4.2.16 (newest versions I've tested have usb issues)

 

VirtualBox config, 4gb ram, chipset ICH9 (have tried PIIX3 with similar results), EFI disabled, using 6 cpus, extended features and hardware virtualizations enabled, for testing I have network and Audio disabled, I have usb and usb2.0 enabled because I will need usb.

 

Mavericks iso from here: https://www.hackintosh.zone/file/75-niresh-mavericks-for-intel-and-amd/

 

I have tried many flags but I attach images for the 2 that I think should be useful, first

amdfx USBBusFix=Yes -x -v

second

amdfx USBBusFix=Yes -x -v GraphicsEnabler=No cpus=6

 

 

Any suggestions on how to solve this are appreciated.

When making the machine, set your os to OSX either 64-bit or server, can't remember which one the lateest version of vbox states. Could you get into the installer at all?

It is set to Mac OS X, Mac OS X (64 bit), I boot from the ISO, then type the parameters and press ENTER, the result is I get stuck on images attached, I assume that is the initialization of the installer.

I get similar results... it's just that I'm stuck at "system uptime in nanoseconds: 0"... it seems that I just can't get iso to install mac os...

No clue. If you don't mind the legality side, there are several torrents of pre-built machines. I would just grab one of them to be honest.

Oh yea, as far as flags go you will 100% need "amdfx -v" you MAY need to add "npci=0x2000" and if the USB aint working you will need "USBBusFix=Yes". worst cause just add -x which is safe mode

USBBusFix=Yes -x -v GraphicsEnabler=No cpus=2 "

    • 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)
