    • Help with Intel G530 graphics @Niresh I need your help please! On my desktop computer I have an Asrock H61M-VS mobo with Intel Celeron G530 CPU and integrated graphics. The only successful Hackintosh installation I’ve ever done is the one with your Sierra distro 10.12.3 in which graphics works perfectly. I wanted to ask you what did you put in your distro to make also G530 integrated graphics working. With every other way to install Hackintosh on a pc I’m unable to get to the installer as I’m stuck in verbose mode due to unsupported graphics. Please answer me, thank you so much!
    • Yes truely its possible to upgrade its kinda hard todo because if you have AMD Proccessor you need to wait until niresh releases a new hackintosh distro. and then make a backupwith time machine and install the newer mac from usb and then you will be asked to have your old data back from windows machine or from your old mac version which if you choose from mac all data will be copied to your new sierra from yosemite so you don't need to lose any data or backup everything on a different usb drive and then use time machine to recover files from usb if its possible because i never use time machine. If you don't want to recover any data then just click on configure as new mac. And it is safe to download app store updates if you have a good intel processor if you have amd you need to use a custom kernel which somebody has patched.   Just search on google with this search term: (example) hackintosh sierra amd patched kernel update 10.12.6 is the latest or you want to update yosemite to 10.10.5 search for update patched kernels amd 10.10.5   https://www.google.nl/search?q=amd+kernel+patched+hackintosh+yosemite+10.10.5&source=lnms&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiv5teI6ZzVAhUMmBoKHaHrAkQQ_AUICSgA&biw=1920&bih=925&dpr=1 Here is the search term i already have for you if its only what you need the search term i used =: amd kernel patched hackintosh yosemite 10.10.5 Or find on youtube a good video how to upgrade a hackintosh yosemite to sierra
    • Loos like a kext eror or a missing dependencie try to boot with -x for safe mode it disabled dangerous kexts to boot mac without issues and maybe by updating or find another or delete the highlighted kext that is causing a kernel panic   try also when you setup the mac try also with: -v -x xcpm kext-dev-mode=1 maybe that should initialize all kexts. Mostly a kernel panic will come if a kexts is required for booting the system is corrupted, missing or you must to update the kext because its outdated or you need to downgrade the kext to older version using kext wizard doesnt matter to install older or newer kexts supported for your lapotp model or desktop and the right mavericks so your system could boot normally.   i looked up for ya the patched kernel you use i think its not supported with your cpu and i think that will only cause more problems.   Bronzovka's (A.K.A. Bronyas) 10.9.0 mach_kernel_rc7     AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 250 AMD Opteron™ Processor 3350 HE AMD FX-8320 AMD FX-8350 AMD FX-8150 AMD Athlon™ X2 340 AMD Phenom II X4 955 [Black Edition] AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Intel Paxville Xeon DP AMD A8-4500m APU Others (Maybe others like i3 i5 i7 maybe not pentium D) im not sure but try to use the vanilla way. And the kernel extensions one of them are faulty. Like it says kernel extension in backtraces. i think you found your problem by download and replace the corrupted com.apple.kec.CoreCrypto kext which maybe can be found in /System/Library/Extensions so first try to reinstall from usb with original niresh kernel dont use amd kernel because you have intel and after it says installation complete... restart ETA like 10 seconds click restart you see a chameleon bootloader so as you mentioned in your problem then try -v -x xcpm npci=0x2000 dart=0 then setup the mac and reboot without -x  see if that works.    
    • Only if you have 2 partition or 2 hard disk because Sierra and yosemite includes the same folders for system files like application there within safari etc utilities it will overwrite so you have to install it on a different hard disk or shrink/split your volume in 2 partition so just split 1 harddisk in 2 partitions   BTW: You need to search the tutorial (how to partition 1 hard disk in 2 partition for hackintosh etc....) it doesnt matter which search term you use you got to search it on google bc im not gonna advertise other tutorials for sites maybe you can find a tutorial on https://hackintosh.zone look in the forums there is something useful in here.
    • Use another tool or wait for a update or just do it like terminal way and then install uefi clover or legacy boot mode so hard shouldn't it be.

AMD 5800k APU with HD 6850 2GB - SO PERFECT.

1 post in this topic

I approached my OS X 10.9 Mavericks installation with a lot of caution.  It sounds so damn complicated!  I guess quite a bit of any computer skill comes from direct experience and can't be taught but this setup was so incredibly easy.  SO many people have problematic issues with this or that, making a Macintosh out of PC hardware can clearly be a LOT of work.  I want to tell my tale of great fortune :)  I am a PC gamer who had a good deal of old hardware laying around, so one day I bought an AMD apu 5800k and an ASUS mobo for it, and with the extra components I had a great home theatre pc.  I had been looking at Hackintosh builds for quite a while, and once I discovered Niresh I was really encouraged to give it a try.  I will get into specifics with anyone interested IN THE COMMENTS, otherwise I think it's better to show specs as basic hardware components:

 

-AMD 5800k APU  -  install boot flag=  amdfx           :)   So why did I choose FX instructions?  Because the 5800k uses Bulldozer/Vishera type cores or units. 

-ASUS FM2+ mobo

-4 gb ram - 2 parts     -make sure you have working RAM chips, or system will crash no matter the OS

-500 gb WD hard drive (I tried a 1 TB HD, installation was good but when booting I got the error that affects 1 TB+ boot drives... don't use a 1TB or greater boot drive for reasons you really don't want to get into)

-Sapphire AMD HD 6850 2 GB gpu  ~ I find it hilarious that for PC gaming this sucker is old and useless, on a Mac it's top of the line for the next year at least.

 

So I follwed directions, after some research I decided on:   graphicsenabler=YES :)

 

When I first tried to boot it froze at account creation, so I rebooted and tried some advice from a friend and type in quickly (during the Niresh boot) :  -x -v

This enables safe mode / verbose mode.  The system booted to the Mavericks desktop.  The Niresh optimization system started and things worked themselves out (thank so SO much Niresh for this, man truly I have so much love for this kindness). 

 

Sound worked automatically with front and rear ports, spdif etc. identified in the sound control panel.  What was amazing is that once I restarted out of safe mode, the graphics card did Quartz Extreme and everything else perfectly. 

 

Here was my most pleasing "hack" - and one that I think a lot of you will appreciate :)  I have a TP link usb wireless card, and I downloaded the OS X 10.8 installer form their website from my PC and brought it by flash drive to the Hackintosh.  For whatever reason, it wouldn't let me install.  Everything in the installer was greyed out and set to "skip".

 

I went into hacker mode.  I used the (THANK YOU NIRESH AGAIN!!!) unpacking tools provided to make it work.  I knew it was the correct installer package, so I viewed "package contents" of each element, right clicking on each package, viewing contents, then with the "payload" file I right clicked and unarchived it, taking the .kext file onto my desktop (.kext files are extensions or drivers needed for hardware to work).  I then used the .kext installer tool included by Niresh in the local Applications folder and installed them together, then used my manually unpacked "Wireless Tool.app" on restart.  It fucking worked.  OMG.  I was so pleased.  How did I figure this out? I open the "uninstall" script in TextEdit and there it is, in reverse, all the files that would normally be installed and the directories they belong in.

 

So I restart and open my Wireless Tool.app, load up my access point bitch:  Now I'm online.

 

So I installed Steam and linked to my account, wow I was able to play graphically intensive games on my new "Mac Pro".  The AMD 5800k showed up as a Xeon 3.82ghz quad core in the system, pretty hilarious.  The 6850 goes beyond it's PC potential on a pc, it behaves so differently and wonderfully under OS X.  I understand now why Apple doesn't use "cutting edge" GPU's in their systems.  My gaming PC's  AMD r9 290 would do severe damage on an OS X system man lol.

 

I tried to load the new Tomb Raider title in Steam got an error - You need to update to 10.9.1... SHIT.  SHIIIIIT.  I sat there looking at forum posts about the nightmares associated with updating.  I eventually said fudge it, downloaded the so-called "Mac Pro 10.9.1 update" a link to the Apple updater file you can find through Google from tonymacx86.  Ran the update.......

 

Everything worked better.  Why am I so lucky.

 

I kid you not, boot times faster, better gaming performance.  Good deep breath.  Ok my new AMD Mac Pro is bad ass.  So  I had been reading up on using a PC bluetooth dongle to use the Apple Magic Mouse and PS3 controllers...  WTF!!!! I plugged it in and it worked right away.  Sweet.  In the bluetooth control panel I paired my Apple Magic Mouse and a PS3 controller.  At this point I was feeling like the luckiest Hackintosher ever.  It had been such a simple smooth setup.

 

With my 10.9.1 working perfectly, sound, you name it, everything still good, I crossed my fingers and launched Tomb Raider.  Boom.  Immediate bluetooth PS3 controller support, I put the graphics @ 1080p on High settings, gamed my heart out. 

 

I have had such a great Hackintosh experience, it was so easy.  Anyone needing guidance go on and comment.  AMD Hackintosh is not only possible, it's fucking awesome.
