Yosemite on AMD... Success ?

Question

OK, here's my hardware :

 

1. Mobo : Asus M5A97 r2.0

2. Graphics : AMD Sapphire HD 7850

3. CPU : AMD FX 8320 @ 3.5 GHz

 

How I installed Yosemite on my hackintosh :

 

Steps :

 

- I downloaded Yosemite-Zone.dmg from the downloads section and followed the guide to make a bootable USB

- I googled Bronya AMD Kernel and I found this : http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Patched_Kernels

- I placed the kernels in their files in the bootable USB

- I booted through the USB using each of these kernels. Some additional flags were needed, like npci and GE=no

- I installed Yosemite on a drive

- I replaced the correct kernels in the yosemite drive. Chameleon didn't work correctly because Yosemite stores the kernel files in a different directory in the system. I booted through the install USB's own bootloader. I got way too many errors and some kernel panics.

- I booted with -v -f -x and everything went OK. It booted up perfectly and I was able to transfer my user from Mavericks to Yosemite.

 

Trying to get it to work on normal mode :

 

- I booted into mavericks and I ran myHack on the Yosemite installation to fix problematic kexts and run myFix

- I replaced some kexts with the mavericks ones (my Mavericks installation works 100%) :

 

AppleACPIPlatform.kext
corecrypto.kext
IOACPIFamily.kext
IONDRVSupport.kext
IOPCIFamily.kext
IOUSBFamily.kext
 
- I booted up using kext-dev-mode=1 (it gave me a kernel panic otherwise)
 
 
Where I am now :
 
It boots up perfectly, shows the home screen with the users etc. but the USB's are ALL not responding to anything. I have tried keyboards, mouse, trackpads and nothing works. They worked OK in safe mode. Somebody please help. I thought that it is because of the kexts dependencies so I thought I should give it some time for other, more experienced, users to try and then follow their instructions. So, I hope this helps! Try it our for yourself maybe and let me know how it went.
 
P.S. : I tried booting with USBBusFix=yes , still the same. Similar problems occured when I used Clover as a boot loader some time ago. Maybe this is the problem... I think the built in bootloader for Niresh is Clover...
 
Cheers

I have tried running the installation with niresh's Yosemite for AMD but it hangs on "No driver found for platform : ACPI". I will try replacing some kexts and I will report back!

    • I booted from the USB, selected "Yosemite zone", but this brings me back to the original problem. It is freezing on the hackintosh logo. Is there any way to solve this.
    • 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 and.....my 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
