HP Pavilion G4 - Success! but with various problems :)


Hello! I am a first time hackintosh user. :D

just want to say thanks to Niresh for his straightforward installer. :D


i have various problems with my Mavericks. which i will highlight one by one.  i hope you guys could advise me on my problems. :) believe me, i used google already and installed various kexts but it wont work. :D


My Build:

HP G4 Laptop

Processor  2.1 GHz Intel Core i3

Graphics  Intel HD Graphics 3000 384 MB - working

6GB ram - working

Wifi - working (ralink 5370)

Sleep - working


This works but....

1. Audio - even tho i already mute the volume still, it releases sound on my laptop. the adjust is useless.

2. usb drives - i have 2 on the left, and 1 on right, sometimes, the left works, and the right doesnt. :(


It doesnt work at all

1. icloud - i installed the one that Niresh posted but it doesnt work. i also deleted plist file but it wont work.

2. radeon 6470m - i am confused how to make this work. i installed various kext but it just wont work.

3. adjust light?


Can it work?

1. my laptop is i3 and has 6gb ram, can mavericks maximise this?


Issues that needs to be addressed (cause i think my laptop will die)

1. everytime i restart, bootloader wont show up. instead i get a blackscreen. but my laptop is still turned on cause my fan is still working and the lights are turned on.

2. same with restart, when i turn off, it doesnt completely off. my lcd is black, fan still spinning, keyboard light is on

- i need to address this issue cause its been a day that im forcing my laptop to turn off. this is a bad practice since my hdd or hwatever might just stop working.



any advice will be appreciated. :)

    • 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)

    • Hello guys!

      Today I tried to install macOS High Sierra from a bootable usb, but my pc froze during the booting process.
      I need help. Can you help me?

      Thanks in advance!
