AMD OSX Yosemite Install

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I may be missing something but this post suggests that I can install OS X Yosemite on my AMD Based HP Envy M6 - 1302sa. I was wondering if anyone can explain 2 things to me.

Is it possible to use the Yosemite Zone file after I restore it to install Yosemite on Windows 8 on VMWare Workstation?

 

And

 

Is it possible to partition my hard drive and dual boot into a different partition where OS X would be installed?

 

 

My laptop is a HP

CPU: AMD Quad-Core A10-5750M APU 

Graphics: Radeon HD 8650G

RAM: 4 GB DDR3

Chipset: AMD A70M FCH

First, testing the OS X in a virtual machine is a good way to see (not 100% though) if it will run on your computer, and yes the dmg files are usable for virtual machines.

 

For dual boot, yes it is quite possible, but GUID partitioned hard drives are preferable for OS X although the distribution is supposed to work on MBR partitioned hard drives. It is possible to install Windows on a Guid partitioned hard drive so Windows (fully working) can coexist on the very same hard drive as OS X but of course in a different partition.

    • Hello everyone,  I'm trying to install High Sierra (with AMD support) on my AMD 4500m Lenovo G505s laptop. When booting from Clover in EFI with i get some really fast screen log then the pc reboots. Now, i know there isn't a way you could help me without some info/logs, unless i'm missing a major malfunction known on these kind of laptops, so, do you know a way i could prevent it from rebooting in order to at least understand what is causing this problem? Do you think even trying to put OSX on this laptop is worth it? Thank you.
    • Hello, i am trying to install High Sierra on my ASUS X75VB but i am getting multiple errors with the ACPI.
      I believe it is CPU related?

      Mainboard: HM76 (X75VB SOCKET 0)
      CPU: Intel Core i5 3320m (Not the original CPU of this laptop!)
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000 & NVIDIA 2GB Geforce 740M
      RAM: DDR3 8GB
      Storage: 120GB SSD (SATA-2)

      I have used the DSDT.aml & SSDT.aml from the following resource:
       https://github.com/xxx10101xxx/ThinkPad-X230-macOS/tree/master/i5-3320M

      My config.plst can be found here:

      Thanks in advance!

    • I have Yosemite Zone working on Virtualbox fine.  After downloading High Sierra Zone there is only a dmg and no ISO.  I tried converting the dmg with hdiutil but it goes to 8GB and I get "no bootable media" in Virtualbox.  Has anyone been able to do this yet?
