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!

Hi I have few questions about it, how do open (and what is it) terminal (is like in windows it's called 'command prompt?'), is the file (amd64) in the usb pen (with mavericks), if doesn't work where shall I put the 'flag' 'KernelCache=mach_kernel'? Thanks.

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.

Thanks.

 

Here it is, step by step :

 

1. Install OSX on a drive (Let's assume it's called "Mac OSX"). Use bootflags "Kernel Cache"=amd64 etc. for installation. When choosing the drive you want it to install to there is a "Configure" option, which you can use to configure what will be installed. Check it out and see if you need to add anything else.

2. Reboot when the installation prompts for a reboot. Boot into the installation drive again.

3. When the installation screen shows up, go to the "Utilities" menu on the top bar and open "Terminal".

4. Copy "amd64" from the pen drive to the root of the "Mac OSX" drive where you previously installed OSX and name it "mach_kernel". (Without the ")

5. Reboot

6. Select the drive you installed OSX to boot into. Chameleon bootloader will start and it will be visible for about 2 seconds. When you see the bootloader screen press a letter in order to access the boot flags prompt. Input the boot flags : "Kernel Cache"=mach_kernel -v (and any others you might need) and press Enter. (PCIRootUID=1 boot flag is useful in AMD machines, but you might not need it. If it hangs at PCI Configuration, add npci=0x2000 boot flag.)

 

After (if) you boot into OSX, there is a file here /Extra/org.chameleon.boot.plist which has all the boot flags that chameleon automatically loads for you. Add any flags you know you need. The "Kernel Cache" boot flag will most probably be needed only once.

 

Oh, also, keep this trick handy, because every time the AppStore tries to update anything, it replaces mach_kernel with the original one and you might need to do it again if it stops booting.

    • 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)
