Hello everyone :),

 

My name is Michael, and I have been having some issue trying to decide which PC parts will be compatible with OS X Mavericks 10.9 (Niresh Distro of course lol)

 

PC parts that I have chosen so far and I need to make sure that they are compatible...so that is were you (the viewer/helper) comes in :), any help will be much appreciated :D

 

Part list:

 

- Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97X-GAMING 7 LGA 1150

Processor:          Intel i3-4330 Dual Core 3.5 ghz

- Ram:              Corsair Vengence 8gb Ram DDR3 1600

HDD:                  WD 1TB Blue

- PCU:              Corsair CX 430 Watt

 

So if anyone can help at all try to determine if these parts will work that would be awesome and also please contact me on Twitter @Michaelkintner1 if you have any input please on email me @ Michaelkintner35@gmail.com   also another thing is that I am not sure if the Z97 Chipset is compatible with Niresh Hackintosh, but I hope it is and most Gigabyte Motherboards are supported thankfully :)

Also you might want to use an Intel core i5, graphics are the most important. There are nvidia & ATI cards that work out of the box. You can google those. And when you intalled Niresh, try to make an vanilla install. They work way better than disro's

@sloeberGJ I was wondering what i5 processor to get that has good integrated graphics?  Also I would still want it to be socket 1150 because I really want that motherboard for my Hackintosh build :).  Also I hope that the Z97 chipset is supported by hackintosh Mavericks :).  One more thing...what is Vanilla install I have never heard of it?

    • Hi, I have a HP G61-415ES with this configuration:
      Intel Pentium T4300 Dual Core 4GB RAM NVIDIA GeForce G 103M My Wifi card is AR5B95 (aka. 9285), and yes: works well with Windows, isn't broken. The thing is, I succesfully installed Niresh 10.8.5 and works perfect, but I tried and tried to get WiFi conection (no Wifi icon on status bar, no Wifi on Network settings)
      I tried installing io80211family.kext, RehabMan-Atheros, toledaARPT.kext and nothing. No icon, no settings... Also I read something about patch DSDT but I don't get nothing clear about how to use or how to patch, all guides are too complex for a person that don't have knowledge of that things. Also a lot of files fo download are missing and a lot of links to get reference are broken, and that increase the complexity of the problem.
      I have a PowerMac G5 MOD working very well, but obviosly I made with the ¨Buyer's Guide¨ and I didn't got any major trouble, but with this laptop it's guiving me headache
      I don't know what to do now, I'm reinstalling again 10.8.5 but I don't have more ideas.
