You're not loading the correct kernel actually. It says it is loading the mach_kernel which is the Intel kernel. Use this boot flag exactly : "Kernel Cache"=amd64 with the quotation marks, along with any other boot flag you might need. AMD usually gives you a PCI Configuration error as well, so you might also want to use npci=0x2000 . If you are using an AMD graphics card add the GraphicsEnabler=No to your boot flags. So try booting with this :

 

 

-v "Kernel Cache"=amd64 npci=0x2000 GraphicsEnabler=No

 

If it works then you should get "Loading kernel /amd64" in the log. If that doesn't work then you might be missing the correct kernel. So go back to windows, run a virtual OS X machine and edit your installation media. Delete the original Intel mach_kernel and rename the amd64 kernel into mach_kernel. Keep in mind that when the installation is finished you will need to boot with that same kernel and then do some editing in the installed OS X in order to replace the mach_kernel on that disk with your AMD kernel. I can't write much more right now, because I am in a hurry, but do the installation and if it works ask here for more.

 

Oh, also , when I did my installation it worked without a PCIRootUID flag but after the installation it needed that boot flag set to 1 in order to boot into OS X.

I am not sure if Niresh distro installs the correct mach_kernel in the root of your installation drive. Mine didn't so I had to manually put it in there. To do this, boot into the OSX installation program and open the terminal. You need to use the cp command to copy the amd64 file from the Niresh bootable media to the root of your installation. I will try to give you an example. 

 

Open terminal from the tools menu on the top bar and type : 

 

ls /Volumes/

 

The output should be all your drives, including the USB (or DVD) you are currently booted from. Let's say the name of the USB drive is "Niresh USB". You will need to issue the command :

 

ls /Volumes/"Niresh USB"/ (with the " since there is a space in the directory name)

 

There should be a file named amd64 in there. Let's say the directory you installed OSX in was named "OSX". You should issue this command exactly :

 

cp /Volumes/"Niresh USB"/amd64 /Volumes/OSX/mach_kernel

 

What this does is it replaces the kernel on the root of your installation with the amd64 kernel. Try booting again. if the problem persists use the boot flag: "Kernel Cache"=mach_kernel

 

I also believe that your graphics card is not supported in versions 10.8 or older, so use "Graphics Enabler"=No as well.

 

Please reply if it works. The community relies on your feedback.

 

Happy hackintoshing! Good luck!

Yes, it is the command prompt for OS X. It is under the Utilities menu on the installation program. The file amd64 is in the root of the pen drive (that means /Volumes/(Pen Drive Name). The flag is for booting up OSX after the installation finishes and you have replaced the files. Remember that you need to replace the file AFTER you have succesfully installed OSX on a drive. You run the installation program one more time after the successful installation in order to copy amd64 to the OSX drive. After that boot OSX with the boot flag. The boot menu lasts for a few seconds (2 seconds) so you need to press something in order to access it. Press "-" when you see the boot menu in order to pause the boot and enter the boot flag.

Hi thanks to clarify the first point, but I'm still a little bit confused about how to insert the file into the boot section.

Lets see if I understood the procedure, install (os X mavericks 10.9), then once I have the computer up and running, browse into the USB, and search for a file called AMD64, and then put that in the drive where (10.9) is installed, what about the 'boot flags' where to put them and how to add, and also, I need to use chameleon or there's a way around?

Thanks.

    • 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
    • I built a Hackintosh on a GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P in 2010, and upgraded it to Sierra about 4 months ago. It's been working great until a few days ago.  The clock now is losing time, while the computer is on and running. I've been working on the computer all morning, and have had to bump it forward to the current time it 3-4x. Right now it says 9:40am, but it's really 9:47am.  I have "Set time and date automatically" set in settings and "Apple Americas/U.S. (time.apple.com.)" selected on the drop down. Deselecting it, and selecting it again, brings the clock back to the current time.  Is this a hardware issue or a software issue? Do I have to replace the CR2032 on the motherboard? If so - why? The computer is on, and running, why would it need that battery to maintain the time?
