    • Help with Intel G530 graphics @Niresh I need your help please! On my desktop computer I have an Asrock H61M-VS mobo with Intel Celeron G530 CPU and integrated graphics. The only successful Hackintosh installation I’ve ever done is the one with your Sierra distro 10.12.3 in which graphics works perfectly. I wanted to ask you what did you put in your distro to make also G530 integrated graphics working. With every other way to install Hackintosh on a pc I’m unable to get to the installer as I’m stuck in verbose mode due to unsupported graphics. Please answer me, thank you so much!
    • Yes truely its possible to upgrade its kinda hard todo because if you have AMD Proccessor you need to wait until niresh releases a new hackintosh distro. and then make a backupwith time machine and install the newer mac from usb and then you will be asked to have your old data back from windows machine or from your old mac version which if you choose from mac all data will be copied to your new sierra from yosemite so you don't need to lose any data or backup everything on a different usb drive and then use time machine to recover files from usb if its possible because i never use time machine. If you don't want to recover any data then just click on configure as new mac. And it is safe to download app store updates if you have a good intel processor if you have amd you need to use a custom kernel which somebody has patched.   Just search on google with this search term: (example) hackintosh sierra amd patched kernel update 10.12.6 is the latest or you want to update yosemite to 10.10.5 search for update patched kernels amd 10.10.5   https://www.google.nl/search?q=amd+kernel+patched+hackintosh+yosemite+10.10.5&source=lnms&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiv5teI6ZzVAhUMmBoKHaHrAkQQ_AUICSgA&biw=1920&bih=925&dpr=1 Here is the search term i already have for you if its only what you need the search term i used =: amd kernel patched hackintosh yosemite 10.10.5 Or find on youtube a good video how to upgrade a hackintosh yosemite to sierra
    • Loos like a kext eror or a missing dependencie try to boot with -x for safe mode it disabled dangerous kexts to boot mac without issues and maybe by updating or find another or delete the highlighted kext that is causing a kernel panic   try also when you setup the mac try also with: -v -x xcpm kext-dev-mode=1 maybe that should initialize all kexts. Mostly a kernel panic will come if a kexts is required for booting the system is corrupted, missing or you must to update the kext because its outdated or you need to downgrade the kext to older version using kext wizard doesnt matter to install older or newer kexts supported for your lapotp model or desktop and the right mavericks so your system could boot normally.   i looked up for ya the patched kernel you use i think its not supported with your cpu and i think that will only cause more problems.   Bronzovka's (A.K.A. Bronyas) 10.9.0 mach_kernel_rc7     AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 250 AMD Opteron™ Processor 3350 HE AMD FX-8320 AMD FX-8350 AMD FX-8150 AMD Athlon™ X2 340 AMD Phenom II X4 955 [Black Edition] AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Intel Paxville Xeon DP AMD A8-4500m APU Others (Maybe others like i3 i5 i7 maybe not pentium D) im not sure but try to use the vanilla way. And the kernel extensions one of them are faulty. Like it says kernel extension in backtraces. i think you found your problem by download and replace the corrupted com.apple.kec.CoreCrypto kext which maybe can be found in /System/Library/Extensions so first try to reinstall from usb with original niresh kernel dont use amd kernel because you have intel and after it says installation complete... restart ETA like 10 seconds click restart you see a chameleon bootloader so as you mentioned in your problem then try -v -x xcpm npci=0x2000 dart=0 then setup the mac and reboot without -x  see if that works.

Niresh Yosemite on amdfx, ati radeon 6570, only boots with -x flag

Question

I used the latest Niresh distro of the Yosemite system. I was already running Windows 8.1 on 1TB hard disk, and I have installed Mac OS X on another 150GB hard disk.
Here are the specs of my PC (you can view them better in the images attached, but I write them too, to make the thread more visible on search engines):

CPU: AMD FX-4100
Motherboard: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. GA-990XA-UD3 (Socket M2)
Graphics: 4096MB ATI AMD Radeon HD 6570 (Sapphire/PCPartner)
Monitor: Acer P225HQ (1920x1080@60Hz)
Network: Controller Realtek PCIe GBE Family
Peripherals: PS/2 Keyboard and USB Wireless Mouse
Audio: I don't actually know

To boot into the installation I used the boot-flags/kernel-flags:
/amdfx npci=0x3000

Doing this I can reach the installation menu and I can successfully install Yosemite.
I don't customize anything during this phase.

When I reboot, to make it work I have to use these boot-flags/kernel-flags:
npci=0x3000 -x

Then I reach the setup wizard, where the only strange thing I have to do is select "my computer doesn't connect to internet"; if I don't do this it returns to the initial menu of the startup wizard, where I have to select my language.
I can make a new user without problems, then I reach the desktop and I let Niresh complete the installation.

The resolution is 1920x1080 and it all looks good, the only strange thing of the graphic is that animations are quite slow and there are some minor glitches sometimes. However, it seems to work good out of the box.
At this point I have no Audio, no internet, and the system can't recognize my peripherals, like the USB key I used to install the system itself. I can see them, through the disk utilities, but i can't actually open them, even if they're formatted in hfs+. So i use paragon hfs+ to transfer files from windows to mac os, and by now, the only thing i have made working is the ethernet card. I used a .kext named RTGNICv2.0.6For10.7. After this, internet works.

Here comes a list of problems that i would like to fix:
- my keyboard has to be unplugged and then repugged to work correctly at every reboot
- i have to use -x
- Audio doesn't work
- usb are recognized but i can't access them
- at last, the installation doesn't install chameleon bootloader, even if i saw that the option is checked in the customize menu. When I reboot without my niresh usb key i log in directly to windows.

The main problem i would like to fix, and that i hope to have help with, is the -x flag. I think that solving it can make my hackintosh a lot more stable, but i've tried a lot of solutions and i don't know what else to do (also because I don't know which is the problem in the first place, consider that I'm a real newbie in hackintoshes). I personally think that there is some kind of trouble with my graphic card, maybe some missing kext or some missing boot-flags. On other forums I read that it can be a fakeSMC problem. When I try to update my graphic kexts it will result in a mess, and i'm not able to view anything.
