Almost perfect installation

Recommended Posts



as mentioned in the title I managed to install 10.9.0 (and update it to 10.9.1 afterwards)

in my desktop PC setting it as an Mac Pro 5,1.

Everything worked out of the box and if I could

solve a few "small" problems I would be more than happy to have such a cool OS and get rid of Windows!


First of all when I shut down my hackintosh everything goes as planned.

I see both power and HDD lights turn off, however I hear noise from either my PSU or some other component with a fan.

The second "problem" is the multichannel Audio. I can only hear from one of my speakers and the quality of sound is


I found this and I cannot understand what I have to do

after creating and aggregate device.. :(

The last one has to do with imessages.. Although I can connect to icloud without a problem, I get constant error messages

when I try to connect to imessage. I tried a few things you mentioned here however with no success.


My PC has an ASUS P5K Premium motherboard, an Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600, 2 GB of RAM, an MSI GT 630 graphics board

and 1 TB WD HDD. Both onboard ethernet adapters are recognized (although I only tested one of them). A small blutooth

adapter works perfectly (I have no idea on what it's brand name is, just got it from ebay for 1 Euro or so). My monitor is recognized and so is my HP Deskjet 4625. Only my "onboard" wireless adapter and a Pinnacle TV card do not appear at all

however I do not mind.


Sorry for the long post and I hope someone can help in making my Hackintosh perfect for me...


Thanks in advance!

Had almost the same setup only with GT 8800. mountain lion worked like a charm. changed it for a laptop (see other post) and much harder to get it to work. grapics/ethernet /sound no luck.  Almost jealous of your specs.


I think you have to check wireless compatibality list on internet because many wifi adaptors don't work with mac.

fleu I don't mind about the wifi adapter, neither the tv card.

If I could only fix imessage and multichannel Audio I would be more than happy.

For some reason the problem I had when shutting down (the fun continued to operate)

doesn't exist anymore, however I got a new problem now.

When I get past the apple logo gray screen my screen "sleeps".

Every three restarts or so it turns on.

I'd really love to solve at least this problem and the Audio and I can live without imessage.

Any ideas?

The multichannel Audio started to function when I unplugged the cables from my PC.. Go figure, but who cares as long as it's working.. :)

    • So I tried to install Mac OS X Sierra on my computer with the following specs :   - Intel Core i5 650 3.20GHZ - 12GB RAM DDR3 - 2 HDD (.1TB , 250GB ) - Nvidia Geforce 210 1GB VRAM DDR3   Everything was cool at first the installation went smoothly with no problems, after setting up everything I noticed that the graphics card has been detected by the systems but there is no acceleration and the resolution is 1024x768, I couldn’t change it   I tried a lot of kext drivers from multiple websites but no success, last kext crashes my os, I start getting black screen after the login page, and the computer restart it self immediately, so I decided to mess with the clover options to find if I can enable the graphics card from there, and WALLAA, the magic happened, I went to clover options then > Graphics Injector Menu > I checked : InjectNvidia option, and I checked : Use NVIDIA WEB Drivers   Note : I already installed Nvidia web drivers previously so you do that too before trying this method   After the restart it took longer then the usual to boot up, but once it got to the login page I noticed that the acceleration is working perfectly and the graphics has no bugs like before.   So until now everything is working fine and I’m enjoying my experience with Mac Sierra  
    • HI, I have the same issue. I have integrated Intel HD4000 and nVidia 620m. I tried with IGPEnabler, GraphicsEnabler and nv_disabled bootflags but none of them helped, it just got me additional kernel panic "AppleUSBHostPort: :disconnect: persistant enumeration failures". I also don't have option to turn off any of my graphic cards in BIOS.  Is there any solution to this issue?
