Recommended Posts



I'm starting this topic to ask you guys help, in order to figure some things out.

My system has this information

CPU : AMD Athlon II X3 435 2.9Ghz


RAM : 3Gb (2 Gb + 1Gb)


MoBo : ASUS M3N78-VM


HDD : 256 Gb Sata


GPU : Nvidia GT 440 1Gb Gigabyte


Monitor connected via VGA cable.


Wich kernel should I use and wich bootflags are reccomended for my system if someone has a clue?

Thank you in advance.

There are several AMD kernels included in the Yosemite distro: amd, amd1, amd2, amd32, amd64, and amdfx. you just try them out. you tell the system to use or choose the kernel by inserting /amd or what ever kernel you choose when entering the bootflags when booting. If you can boot up from the USB drive and get to the install procedure then most likely the kernel you choose is working (but perhaps not 100%)


If you can install the operating system to your hard drive, then you can unhide the content of the USB drive and copy the kernels to a folder on your hard drive /System/Library/Kernels/ the kernels are small files in the root of the USB. Now after copying the kernels to the hard drive then you can try them out each and everyone by selecting different kernels when booting your computer by inserting a boot flag /System/Library/Kernels/amd1 or what ever kernel you want totry.


I would guess other bootflags for you system would be, GraphicsEnabler=Yes npci=0x2000 -f but they can be other bootflags needed also .

    • I managed to install the niresh mav distro and then did the combo update without reinstalling the hackintosh stuff after the update, this ofc resulted in my pc not booting. Ive tried to use the installer to do a time machine backup of my system pre combo update to no avail, and now I cant even get the installer to boot again. any and all help is greatly appreciated. I'm using a asus m4a88t -v evo/usb3 mobo and amd phenom ii x4 965 Deneb edition. I previously booted the installer using -amd64 nv_disable=1 dart=0 and I think -x -v but I cant remember. I think my bios needs to be updated but I cant even find the board on the asus site so any help with that would also be appreciated. if anyone is familiar with the hp flyer red laptop my wife would like me to hackintosh that as well. I have a working windows 10 install and working Ubuntu install, sandisk cruzer 32gb flashdrive and a couple blank cds at my disposal.
