Trouble with Customization Options in Installation

Question

I was able to successfully boot into Niresh's Hackintosh installation, but I'm experiencing some issues with the installation. I think it has to do with the customizations.

 

At first, the installer worked fine and installed Macintosh without any issues. But I was experiencing an issue where my computer wouldn't boot into any bootloader that I selected in the installation process. I realized that what was happening was that Chameleon and Clover (whichever was selected) was being unselected when I finished selecting all of my options. On my last attempt at an installation, I went through and made sure that all of my options were selected and then clicked Chameleon and then install. I double and triple checked before clicking install to make sure that the box was checked before finally clicking install. The installation went through and began to install to the system but with less than minute left, the installation stopped and said that there was an error and it couldn't continue.

 

I'm wondering if maybe I'm not selecting all of the right options for my machine. Is there any way to figure out what options I ought to click for my system's specs? Admittedly, I'm not sure what I absolutely need and what I don't.

 

My computer is an HP Envy TouchSmart m6-n012dx running on an Intel i5-4200M CPU with integrated HD 4600 graphics.

I think I've figured out my issue...or at least the beginning of it.

 

On most tutorials, people will tell you to change the BIOS settings from IDE to ACHI. I never saw such an option in my BIOS so I figured it wasn't necessary. But as I read more, I'm finding out that changing that has a big effect on the bootloader and how it will operate.

 

I've used CPU-Z to figure out my BIOS and it's by Insyde and its version is F.04.

 

I've done lots of Google searches trying to find information on this BIOS and how to navigate it but haven't found anything. Is there any place that I haven't checked or maybe is there a way to change IDE to ACHI in the Windows environment using Command Prompt or something?

    • Hello, friends, I need your help. I am using  Motherboard: Asus H81M-CS Processor:  Intel Core i3-4130 Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4400 I connected monitor via VGA port.   Everything is working great. Only issue right now I am having is graphics with VGA Port. Can any one suggest me to solve this issue?
    • It's because when you update, the kernel is replaced & so are the kexts. You need to either know how to use Terminal to copy the files after booting into your USB OR hook up your Start Disk Hard Drive to another Hack or Mac & copy over the proper kernel to System/Library/Kernels/ & also use kextwizard to install the kexts required as well & then repair cache. It's not that complicated if you have another Mac or Hack(intosh) to connect your drive to. There are some tutorials online. I'm by no means a pro at this at all, but I couldn't believe no one had replied to anyone here. I'm actually in the exact same situation, just finished updating my Yosemite Zone 10.10 to 10.10.5 through AppStore & it won't boot back in, then I remembered when I did this last time I had to connect my HD to another mac & copy over files, but I can't remember exact files so I came here to look for them & found this thread. I have been successful in getting an old MSI Platinum35 mobo with the 771/775 mod & Xeon x5460 with AMD 6850 running Sierra. I have been successful getting a newer MSI A88XM Gaming Mobo with x4 760k & AMD 6670 running Mavericks, then Yosemite, then High Sierra, and recently tested Sierra & it worked too. One thing though is that with Sierra & High Sierra the screen flickered different colors & I needed to download a thing called SwitchResZ & change the setting from "Billions of Colors" to "Millions of Colors" & it fixed it both times, even after I uninstalled it, the screen flickering was gone,.. So I have been through a few different processes (not including the updates like 10.10 to 10.10.5) But I am the farthest thing from a pro. Just followed tutorials, googled  & used distros, I think DeeKay was first one for Mavericks, then Yosemite Zone, Sierra Zone, & finally High Sierra Zone. But my digi 002r worked on all with the AVID 003 family 11.1.3 driver, except when it came to high sierra. For some reason it has sync issues with Midi/audio. Says something about not recognizing clock speed of 43,121Khz or something (cuz it should be 44.1Khz, or 48Khz etc) But it only happens on High Sierra. On Yosemite I had to do a trick cuz the play bar's timing was off, to fix it I went into bios & changed my multiplier from 100 to 103 so instead of my cpu running at 3.6Ghz, it was like 3.9Ghz. But for some reason that fixed it & Yosemite was stable, rarely (if ever) did it crash. But Sierra crashes all the time so I can't make music on it anymore, for some reason I don't think it was like this at first...maybe something I installed. Only reason why I changed was to keep up with Logic X updates. My Sierra build is up to date with Logic X 10.4 & Digi 002r runs great (11.1.3 driver) but like I said it crashes alot & I don't know why. So my thought was to return to Yosemite 10.10 & update to 10.10.5 like I did b4 & downgrade Logic X to 10.3 or 10.2.4(can't remember). So I got to find those files & instructions again to put the proper kernel & texts back that the update erased. That's what ya'll need to do as well. When I find it I will come back & edit my post or just post a new one.
