Help! I messed up my laptop!

Recommended Posts

Okay so recently I installed Niresh's OS X Mavericks onto my Windows 8 laptop. I was stupid and didn't back up anything, thinking that OS X would install separately from Windows 8. Evidently, that wasn't the case, so now I have a laptop running Mavericks with no Wifi (the internal card isn't compatible with OS X), no Bluetooth (for some reason the laptop won't identify any nearby devices), and it seems like the USB ports don't work (I've plugged in WiFi USB adapters, but they never show up on OS X. I really don't want to spend another hundred dollars replacing what I had before. If this problem occurred because I was careless and didn't back anything up, then is there a way to fix the internet connection issues or Bluetooth issues? The laptop is a Sony Vaio E14P with an Intel i7 processor, 16 GB of RAM, and a 2 GB dedicated AMD Radeon graphics card. I am still able to access the BIOS but without the USB to boot OS X from, the computer just says "No Operating System Found". I'm pretty sure I screwed myself over. Any help is welcome!


P.S. I am a beginner with all of this and am in no way experienced, as clearly seen.

    • Well, the pkg is beginning to install High Sierra on my SSD, but then stops with the error code "could not be installed on this computer" 
    • I followed your tutorials which seems to be 1000% easy as its usually around the same as TonyMac, except your installs requires less to do and youve done most of the work too the package which makes it installing for us very easy. Now, the pic below shows a whole bunch of errors and I dont know why. Ive searched these forums and just like the title here, there is none which is odd, because from your tutorials, this shouldnt happen and it seems no one else is running into this problem, HOWEVER, if they did post something like this, Im 1, looking for the fix on high sierra, not sierra or tammy or roger or lutherin, 2 they need to check their titles again because its not helping anyone. I will say I did try installing Sierra Hackintish Zone version and it works all the way up to right after it installs, it tells me "it cannot be installed on this computer", SO....sigh, idk       So, to conclude, I do appreciate the devs here and much respect. Thanks for doing this. But guys, please help a bruh out and tell me how to fix this. Im using windows 10 as my main so do not tell me to go to do nothing on a mac, its the whole point of me coming here is to hackintosh. I do follow instructions fairly           well consider I teach Programming to the Military. My god bless this post soul too tbh <3       
    • Hello, I want to know what I have to do to install Kexts, use clover configurator, install bootloader, change resolution and how to use multibeast according to my hardware. I'm new to this mac configuration process. For now my hackintosh is pure, with no driver installed wifi, ethernet, graphics etc .. Sometimes when I start hackinstosh gives the Kernel Panic and stops loading on the apple screen, but I reboot and load normally. And also after a few minutes using the macOS it freezes the screen. I used the Hackintosh Zone Niresh Sierra because it was the only one that successfully installed on my notebook. My hardware is: Notebook Samsung Expert x23 Intel HD Graphics 5500 I5-5200U Processor Nvidia Geforce 910M 2GB 8 GB RAM HDD 1TB Bluetooth
