I need help installing on AMD machine - OS X Mavericks 10.9 - Hackintosh Zone Jump to content

Question

Hi guys,

For the last two days I've been trying to get OSX 10.9 Mavericks installed on my PC;

 

Specs:

CPU: AMD Athlon ll X2 270

GPU: nVIDIA GTS 450

RAM: 2x2GB Kingston DDR3 1033MHz

Motherboard: MSI GF615M-P33 V2

Chipset Model: GeForce 7025

Southbridge Model: nForce 630a

Storage: 160GB 5400RPM IDE(!) HDD (primary)

 

In my bios I have no AHCI option, only IDE and RAID.

On my harddisk I have a Windows partition, a storage partition, and an unformatted partition for OSX.

I'm trying to install it using a thumb drive, on which I wrote the .DMG using Win32DiskImager.

 

The installation keeps getting stuck at at a "still waiting for root device" screen. I've tried the following flags: amd/amd69, ahcidisk=1 debug=8, GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No, USBBusFix=Yes, -f, -x in all combinations, none of them works.

The thing is, last night I got it to work using "amd64 ahcidisk=1 debug=8 GraphicsEnabler=No -f -v". The installation succeded, and the OS was very responsive (way better than Ubuntu), it had sound, networking and everything was working on the first run. This morning however I couldn't get it to start, so I erased the partition and tried to install it again, and this is where I am now. I don't know what else to do...

 

I'll attach some pics.

If you are willing to help, please do so in a way that a beginner can understand.

Phew.. I've done it myself. I'm posting this from within Mavericks :D .

I booted into the USB installer with "amd GraphicsEnabler=No USBBusFix=No -f -v" and into OSX with "GraphicsEnabler=Yes USBBusFix=No ahcidisk=1 debug=8".

I just hope I don't fuck up now.

I didn't encounter that problem during my installation...

Try the RAID mode and boot with "ahcidisk=1 debug=8" from the USB.

No, just select Raid mode, and restart the PC. RAID will then install AHCI, and begin to boot from the HD that's configured to boot first. I was able to get Mac OS X on an IDE configuration.

Hi mate. I have tried what you told me to do. I went into the BIOS and checked if there were any options about enabling RAID.

 these are the options which I get there. I went to Serial-ATA Raid Config "NV SATA RAID function" was disabled... I enabled it. Then Enabled NV SATA 1 Primary and NV SATA 2 Primary. Because those are the only ports on which two of my hard drives have been connected. Then I booted back into the installation with USB thumb drive made by unibeast. with bootflags "ahcidisk=1 debug=8 GraphicsEnabler=No -f -v npci=0x3000" but still no hard drives in the installation. :( Can you plz briefly tell me how did you actually get the RAID mode enabled. Did I do it correctly? Or is there more to it? Plz mate just a lil help and i'll be saved. Plz reply asap. Thanks in advance. :(

I recommend, if you have the means, and the time, and the patience, you create the USB in windows, using WIn32DiskImager and the USB version of the official release. I think this has something to do with things.

Also your bios page looks different from mine. look for a page called "On-Chip ATA devices".

Never Mind. I'm running Mavericks 10.9 fully stable now. Used nforce kext to get it detect my hard drives. BTW I can't get the Audio won't show up. The icon is there but no volume on sliding it. Can you suggest me a proper kext? Thanks in advance.

    • 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?
