Updating After Kernel Backup (10.9.0 - 10.9.4)

Question

KradonZ1    5

So I've got my Hackintosh up and running for a few days now. Only problem I noticed is when I close images opened the default Mac OS X image viewer, it takes 2 minutes for it to officially close. I'm not sure why this is.

 

So the main question I have is when I update from 10.9.0 to 10.9.4 through the official app store update, it goes into an infinite loop of reboots. In other words, it boots to apple logo screen then immediately turns black and reboots and the cycle will start again. I've tried booting with many options such as -f -v -x, or trying to use -s boot-flag to backup grafix, and xpcm-free (I have no idea what this does but it did grant me the wish of installing mavericks onto my computer). Neither of them had any affect.

 

After doing research, it seems like I need to backup my kernel of the above situations will occur. Using OSX86 tools, I've successfully backed up my kernel named "mach_kernel" or something the like onto my main SSD and onto a USB.

 

Though, what to do with the backed up kernel is beyond my knowledge. So I just went ahead and tried to install 10.9.4 again with the backed up kernel, and the results were not satisfying. The same thing happened the first time I tried installing the update. 

 

I should also note that my Hackintosh has no dual boot to windows, it's just Niresh Mavericks inside.

 

So here I am after many attempts, asking the people who know what they're doing with Hackintosh for advice and solutions.

 

Thank you for reading.

That's about all the hardware that matters.

    • 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)
