Not sure but have you set your SATA  to AHCI instead of IDE in your BIOS? 

 

Also, if you change it from IDE to AHCI you may find windows will not boot. This can be fixed by switching back to IDE load windows, then search "install AHCI in windows 7"in google. Easily fixed.

 

Otherwise I have no idea.   ;)

many thanks for your tip.

I went back and made a 20gb partition from my 500gb storage hdd. all installed fine. I then added a boot entry with easeyBCD.

I just need to sort out the Audio as I have none. and the graphics as its only a resolution of 1024x768 plus it tends to flash like hell sometimes on the web.

 I think you need to use the OSX install to make the partition.

 

The MBR for your machine is probably the difficultly. If you use the whole drive its easier, otherwise you need to install a proper bootloader setup so your partition can be booted from.

 

Like shown here:

(i think..)

Glad to hear its working! I think the resolution and flashing is graphics kext issue. Not really sure on these but over at insanelymac or similar site you might find advice from someone who has your video card working.

 

Fo instance your card series is listed here::

    • Hai,

      Is there a way to increase video memory of a 

      AMD A4-6210 APU

      AMD Radeon R3 Graphics 1.8 Ghz

      it is not for gaming, but only to seen movies ect
    • So I tried to install Mac OS X Sierra on my computer with the following specs :   - Intel Core i5 650 3.20GHZ - 12GB RAM DDR3 - 2 HDD (.1TB , 250GB ) - Nvidia Geforce 210 1GB VRAM DDR3   Everything was cool at first the installation went smoothly with no problems, after setting up everything I noticed that the graphics card has been detected by the systems but there is no acceleration and the resolution is 1024x768, I couldn’t change it   I tried a lot of kext drivers from multiple websites but no success, last kext crashes my os, I start getting black screen after the login page, and the computer restart it self immediately, so I decided to mess with the clover options to find if I can enable the graphics card from there, and WALLAA, the magic happened, I went to clover options then > Graphics Injector Menu > I checked : InjectNvidia option, and I checked : Use NVIDIA WEB Drivers   Note : I already installed Nvidia web drivers previously so you do that too before trying this method   After the restart it took longer then the usual to boot up, but once it got to the login page I noticed that the acceleration is working perfectly and the graphics has no bugs like before.   So until now everything is working fine and I’m enjoying my experience with Mac Sierra  
    • HI, I have the same issue. I have integrated Intel HD4000 and nVidia 620m. I tried with IGPEnabler, GraphicsEnabler and nv_disabled bootflags but none of them helped, it just got me additional kernel panic "AppleUSBHostPort: :disconnect: persistant enumeration failures". I also don't have option to turn off any of my graphic cards in BIOS.  Is there any solution to this issue?
    • ya no documentation ..and iam so confused to ..can some one make tutorial
