Thank you so much for putting so much effort and availing such wonderful distro for AMD, am really greatful thanks!


I've successfuly installed the OS on my laptop and it seems to be working like a charm;

here are my lappy's specs


Brand : Lenovo

Model : G505s-20255

Processor : AMD A-Series A10-5750M
Graphics Adapter : AMD Radeon HD 8650G + HD 8570M Dual Graphics 2048 MB

Memory : 8GB DDR3 800 MHz.


despite having a successful installation, am having few glitches like


1. Not able to use WiFi

2. There isn't any sound output or input

3. It shows the Display as 4MB only

4. It eats a lot of battery; earlier my laptop's battery used torun for almost 2-3 hours but now it's hardly an hour



i would be greatful for your guidance and kind help, request everyone to please respond as soon as possible; thanks in advance.

Is your bluetooth working (If you have bluetooth)?

As well as this, is your brightness on full?

if your bluetooth is working, the Mac OS cannot control the amount of power going to it (So I have noticed). This eats up a lot of power.

If your brightness is on full, there are drivers to fix it (if I am correct)

I installed on a Lenovo Y40, and I am able to get 2 hours, but the brightness is extremely low.


Sound, try the MultiBeast drivers, and if they do not work, get MacPois0n, and use the HDAEnabler v2.8.5 (If I remember correctly, that is the name). If that does not work, use the Audio layout 3, also from MacPois0n.


Display memory, I think your graphics are not installed right, but correct me if I am wrong...

Are you booting up in safe mode? If you are, then I think the display memory is always wrong (or at least mine was wrong as well).


If your wifi chipset is from Intel, there are no wifi drivers for it. Only broadcom, and I forgot what the other one was.


 Are your graphics lagging in anyway? My Y40 just broke, and I am getting a refund. I am planning to buy a better laptop (Asus X550DP) and I want to know if the graphics work beforehand

If they don't work, I have found another laptop anyway

For the Sound you can use Nresh all in 1 sound package in the downloads section.


For the Wifi you can use Niresh all in 1 network  package in the download section.



As for the GFX, Try booting at the Niresh boot screen with flags: UserKernelCache=No GraphicsEnabler=Yes

    • Hi guys, managed to make a hackintosh and everything is going great (Wifi, cpu ECT)   But it's pretty damn slow, i tried one of my favorite lightweight games to test (The Ultimate Doom) and it could barely run THAT! This is my first time and i have no idea how to get my 8570 to work.. Probably should have read a bit, eh? Lol.   And no I don't plan on using my hackintosh for gaming, but god so slow..   Thanks, help would be very appreciated. Edit: It's the dedicated version btw, and in about my mac I see "Graphics Display 3 MB" maybe the issue?  
    • Trying to boot to the installer but I get instant reboot after the following: I am using the following flag (I tried a variation - I need USBBusFix=Yes otherwise it fails even earlier): All my USB devices turn off just before it reboots, so I'm guessing it loses connection to the USB install media - but I can't work out why it's disabling all the USB's. My motherboard is an AsRock Killer Fatal1ty 990FX.
    • Saludos!   Tengo el mismo error (RAM a 667mhz), con una placa base ASUS (y mi cpu es el fx 6300).   Lograste solucionarlo?
    • Hi guys. Well, this is my second day of troubles, I touched everything, I installed max like 5 times in the same day, trying to figure out things and well. My Mac it display my graphic card on the #About this Mac tab With 2047MB ( So I guess all is right ) I installed the latest nvida drivers and on clover I activated the NvidaWeb. The problem is the resolution. Max resolution allowed is 1280 x 1024 and 800 x 600. I used to boot with nvd_drv 1 with nvd dry 0, I used to boot with all that things, and without them.  BUT No way to fix the resolution. Someone knows what-s going wrong and how can I fix it? Bdw im using iMac14,2 and OS X Sierra 10.12.3 Im connecting to the screen with DVI adapter. ( Maybe that causes the problem ) But it shows Im running 2047 MB so... idk why I can't change resolution. Thanks! ================================= SOLVED EDIT: Hi guys, in Display Resolution, I just set it in "Default for display" and after that pressing "THE WINDOWS BUTTON KEY, IN MY CASE, IDK WHAT KEY IS THAT IN MAC KEYBOARD, I THINK THE CONTROL ONE OR IDK" PRESSING that key I selected Scaled, and it appears more options and resolutions. There is a video on youtube about that called "Mac OS X Display Resolution" If someone has the same trouble.
