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.

    • 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)
