Randomly Freezing @ P5KPL-AM/BR



I've successfully installed OSX Yosemite from an Unibeast pendrive, which was created at another hackintosh, at my P5KPL-AM/BR motherboard which is equipped with:

- 2,93 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 (not overclocked).
- 4GB (2x Kingston 2GB) RAM.
- 320GB HDD.
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1023 MB.
** Audio is external, using an USB Steelseries Siberia Soundcard.

Kexts were installed using the last version of Multibeast, with an exception of the video driver, which was downloaded from Nvidia's website (Version 343.01.01f03 of Nvidia Web Driver).

Everything is fine, except by random freezes. Sometimes it happens seconds after booting, sometimes hours.

I've checked logs, there was something related to a network driver, doing a little research I found something about an Atheros driver, which I removed and used Kext Utility to rebuild cache.

I've no clue on what may be causing this, any help would be greatly appreciated. If any other information is required, please just comment below.

@morc3go is it solved or does it exist?


I've decided to try to reinstall it following your tutorial and using your dist, will do it tonight.


It might be of huge help if you could point me the correct options for the customize option during installation.


Again, thanks a lot.



Hey, thanks for your answer!


It still happening. Tried changing smbios settings, every single one I tried gave me black screen upon restarting (while using nvidia's web driver).


I've also tried some options at Multibeast, nothing.


Edit: It came to mind that I had the same issue with your dist. of Mavericks. In this (mavericks) case, I didn't install anything, used your dist. automatically installed kexts.

I've reinstalled with your dist and left my hack unchanged after the first boot for an hour w/o freezing. After that, I had to install the only kext which didn't work, network (AppleRTL8169Ethernet 2.0.6).

After this kext installation, my hack froze 7 minutes after rebooting.

Having in mind the problem may have been the network kext, I did a bit of a research and found something about it in a post here at www.hackintosh.zone, which suggested using -legacy and cpus=1 at boot. So far, using these boot flags I've been fine for about 15 minutes, which ain't that long of a time, but better than the previous restart. If it freezes again I'll edit this post.

Note: I've tried every network kext from Atheros and Realtek. The only one which made my connection work was AppleRTL8169Ethernet 2.0.6.

** After every kext removal from S/L/E, I ran Kext Utility for a cache rebuild.

Any help regarding this will be greatly appreciated.

Edit: it froze. Im starting to lose my will to do this hack.

I couldn't get it to work, even installing the correct driver for Ethernet it still froze, so I'm giving up on this as I have no clue on what to try anymore.

    • Hi guys, I installed the Hackintosh Sierra Zone image and most things work except my graphics. It detects as AMD R9 290X when I use FakeID 0x67B01002 on boot, however I only get 7MB of VRAM with no QE. My screen also tears as well. Hope someone can help me - Intel Core i5 2500K - AMD R9 290X 4GB - ASUS P8Z77-V LX
    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have      
    • Hi everyone. Here are my specs MOBO :Gigabyte Z68 XP UD3 (1155) GPU : HD 6870 1gb CPU Intel i7 2600k (1155) 60gb SATA SSD   MOBO is using legacy Bios. This machine has served me well for years. I tripped a circuit breaker a few weeks ago and now it's stuck in a boot loop. I have setup a new bootable USB to reinstall but for some reason the boot loop is happening when I startup from this as well. I can manage to get to the desktop using the safe mode boot flag (-x) but after a few moments, the desktop freezes and the computer reboots. I used the 10.10.1 disc image to create the new USB stick I am not sure if this could be causing the boot problem in the USB. Should I have used the 10.10.0? At first I suspected a hardware issue but I left the computer on for two days at in the bios screen and it stayed on just fine. Hoping someone can give me a hand figuring out which boot flags can get me going again or how I can reinstall the OS. I really need to get past the freeze/reboot cycle I am in. I am almost ready to nuke this thing and install windows
