Almost There

Question

After a LOT of searching and trial and error I just about have most of my system working or at least the things I have thought to try.  My big remaining problem that I am aware of is that that my system doesn't see my optical drives.  I have two host controllers on my MB.  One is intel and the other Jmicron.  The optical drives are on the Jmicron.  One thing I noticed is that that in the Niresh system info tool it lists the intel as Sata and the Jmicron as IDE.  The drives are Sata drives.  In the regular system info section it just says both are ACHI and neither seem to have errors.  I have upgraded to 10.9.2.  My video isn't horrible but it seems like it could be a little better.  I have a Radeon 6950.  How can I tell if I am using the best kext file for my card.  YouTube is pretty much un viewable.  I am fresh over from WIndows so I am still trying to figure out how things work in this environment.  I'm still not sure I am running programs right.  It seems like they just run from where they are downloaded and do not install but that really isn't at the top of the list.  I would be very happy if I could just get these two optical drives going at the moment.  Thanks!

Sure, I will post a shot of kexts and devices.  I also have a onboard broadcom gigabit netlink that I never could get to work if you have any suggestions.  I used the all network driver kext which got a 100mb Intel add on card working so I have connectivity it just isn't as fast on the local network.  No biggie on that one though since I do have something working.  Please keep in mind I am completely new to this and very Windows minded at this point but I am getting there.  I am reasonably tech savvy but feel pretty stupid on this stuff atm.

I still can't see where anything is being attached.  I tried both basic and advance uploaders.  I'm not sure if I am even able to see it.

Well, just to check I moved one of the drives over to the Intel controller and it showed up.  I haven't tested it yet but I can see it.  Maybe it has something to do with the kext file for the Jmicron controller.

    • Hi guys, I installed the Hackintosh Sierra Zone image and most things work except my graphics. It detects as AMD R9 290X when I use FakeID 0x67B01002 on boot, however I only get 7MB of VRAM with no QE. My screen also tears as well. Hope someone can help me - Intel Core i5 2500K - AMD R9 290X 4GB - ASUS P8Z77-V LX
    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have      
    • Hi everyone. Here are my specs MOBO :Gigabyte Z68 XP UD3 (1155) GPU : HD 6870 1gb CPU Intel i7 2600k (1155) 60gb SATA SSD   MOBO is using legacy Bios. This machine has served me well for years. I tripped a circuit breaker a few weeks ago and now it's stuck in a boot loop. I have setup a new bootable USB to reinstall but for some reason the boot loop is happening when I startup from this as well. I can manage to get to the desktop using the safe mode boot flag (-x) but after a few moments, the desktop freezes and the computer reboots. I used the 10.10.1 disc image to create the new USB stick I am not sure if this could be causing the boot problem in the USB. Should I have used the 10.10.0? At first I suspected a hardware issue but I left the computer on for two days at in the bios screen and it stayed on just fine. Hoping someone can give me a hand figuring out which boot flags can get me going again or how I can reinstall the OS. I really need to get past the freeze/reboot cycle I am in. I am almost ready to nuke this thing and install windows
    • i also have this problem if you will finde the solution please inform me right away and thank you
