Bios modification

Question

Vyzantion    0

This is my first post, completly new to this, sorry if I will say some stupid things. Probably I will not install on my machine OS X, any version, but I am still curious on this, so... My machine can run Mountain Lion, checked it with the DVD. My CPU is Intel Celeron 1000M 1.80 dual core, Intel HD Graphics card, can not figure out the rest, how to get the Information, all I know is that my system is Lenovo G580, model 21057. I know that Mountain Lion can be upgraded to Yosemite on any hardware (Am I wrong?), so this means my system supports Yosemite. My question is that this distro requires some Bios modifications, I mean not just changing settings, but adding or/and removing  Bios components, I know that on other Hackintosh methods Bios replacement, totaly or partialy is required. Let`s say I install Yosemite, and then decide to turn back to Windows, would there be permanent modifications to the Bios? If so, official service might refuse repair or cleaning, if they discover this. Sorry again for my lack of expertise.

hi, 
in my opinion, there is no problem about changing the bios, and reinstallation of windows for after-sales service. 
WHY do not install OS-X and "WINDOWS" whole dual boot? 
good luck 
soon to OS-X

I had a Lenovo G575 (Which is pretty much the exact same system with a slightly worse motherboard). The darn things are nearly impossible to hackintosh. The Niresh build din't work so I gave up with mine as I didn't see it worth it. Next up, The celeron is a dreadful cpu, They are the bottom of Intels lineup. I don't know how powerful they are exactly but I'm not convinced it will run Mountain Lion as my G575 was 100%ed cpu wise at the desktop of windows 7 and about 40%ed at the desktop of XP!

 

You could try lion or maybe even snow leopard but the Lenovo G series from other posts I have seen and personal experience is a right pain to hackintosh and if it does work, its to slow to use at the end of the day making it not worth it.

 

Sorry to be the bearer of  bad news but best of luck :)

Thx for the replies. No, dual boot is aut of the question completly, I do not like that, maybe a Virtual Machine. I have a free license on a type of Windows 8.1, that is currently running on the machine. You say Mavericks or Yosemite should not be used, defantly, if I decide to do this, I shall not go to old versions like Lion. It seemed to me that the Niresh distro is so well done, that, if you allready have the right machine, after you load install, it will install just as easy of Windows, or almost. I was thinking for some time to switch to Linux, I have friends that did that and it Works, practicly, flawless, but it has a major dropback, for me. This drawback is the low support for music, I mean acces to online stores, music visualizers, and, most of all, music creation or editing. So, I taught of OS X Yosemite, when it will be available as a f inal version, it is still Unix, has a lot of the Unix relaibility that Windows does not have, and it has none of the music related drawbacks.  There arfaiome music creating software that require 4 gb of ram, not just 2 gb as I currently have. I wonder if there is a way to enhance swap, to give them the ram they need on OS X?

At the end, if I got this hardware, and the final installer of Yosemite, will it be as easy of Windows to install? Can Yosemite be installed and, if so, would it work ok?

For my part whatsoever Yosemite or Mavericks, everything is installed without major problems on the first try on the equipment already very old, dating as a processor, see the signature of the post. 
Mavericks runs like clockwork and I can walk "GarageBand" without any worries. I just added RAM (DDR2) and changed the graphics card is recognized by OS-X 
Good Luck

I was thinking on Logic Pro, when I said DAW. Logic Pro asks for 4 gb and I know the installer stops if less if ram is present.

I guess that, if I install Mountain Lion from a DVD, not an usb driver, then I can upgrade to the Niresh distro of Mavericks or Yosemite without burning another DVD or using an USB flash drive, just download the installer and run it. Right?

    • 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)
