Mavericks on HP Envy 15(pretty similar to macbook pro)

Question

Hi Guys, i am really new to hackintosh. i have recently bought a laptop(HP Envy 15) and wanna install a hackintosh to it. the spec is as below:

CPU: Haswell i7-4712HQ

Ram: 8GB 1600

GPU: GTX850m with HD graphics 4600(i know that 850m is now not supported)

Screen: 1080p ips

Chipset: HM87

HD: 1TB 5400rpm

i think that most hardware is supported, but when i use niresh mavericks, it cannot boot.

after i plug my usb that made in windows into my laptop, and i use f9 to choose to boot my usb. after that, it is able to go into the niresh menu.

i tried to use no flag, cannot boot or even see a apple logo.

with flag

1: hp xpcm-free -v -x

2. hp xpcm-free -v -x cpus=1

3. hp xpcm-free -v -x GraphicsEnabler=No

but nothing works, not even getting into boot process.

i can't even install it on my laptop.

please help me, million thanks.

oh, i am really new, and i finally find out that i cannot use 2 Mach_kernel, in my case, because it is a haswell cpu, xpcm-free is more important, hp should not be use.

    • Oh, thank you but in the meantime I thought again and have installed High Sierra instead. It works just fine, put a camera, bluetooth, wifi, all working OK. I only have to solve a little problem when doing restart it freezes but after shutdown it comes up good! I have also Win7 on same mbr disk and I start with the installation usb but I think go over to EasyBCD to make a smoother boot. If your experienced I would appreciate very much any hints for helping me in this direction.

    • Hi, i am struggling with installation telling me that it needs less than one minute for eternity. in log it shows that "./postinstall: Using AMD Bronya Kernel" process is running, but 4 hours is too long for "Less than a minute" don't you think ;).    Please help me, i tried to install Mac OS on Intel and AMD processor PC, same problem.  
    • Hola, generalmente se postea en ingles.   Podrias dejar las especificaciones de tu tarjeta madre, por ejemplo: RAM PROCESADOR GPU ETC   Ademas de los componentes que tienes instalados... tengo una pregunta para ti.   Ya comprobaste la compatibilidad de tu ordenador con el sistema operativo?
