yes it works, but with a fix that should have been included in your installation, incase this has not installed than you can find the fix in another post here in this forum, but you need to find out where to put the files that correct or enable Appstore, iMessages. 


You also need to have a valid serial number of the "fake" mac/hackintosh.

I have now 10.10.1, appstore is working, i also installed all the fixess for that ) for example ethernet builtin, nvram, rename ethernet to en0..) Can I get somewhere valid serial number if I dont have original mac? 

When I had maverick, it was working. 

EDIT - oh, so I can just copz that from any mac serial on internet. I will try


EDIT2 - No. It's not working. I used valid serial from another mac pro, but it's not working. Can you help me somehow?

Edit, since the Appstore, iMessage is not working even using the Smbios.plist from the old installation, then the "Fix" is not fully applied or something else is wrong. If yo have downloaded the "fix files" (a link is in other thread here in this site) then you just copy the files to the following directories you will see which files go in each directory. 


The directories are /System/LibraryFrameworks and /System/Library/StagedFrameworks/Safari.


It is easy to get a valid serial number for the hackintosh pc, if you had a Smbios.plist in the old installation from Maverics, then you could have used that one, but if you don't have that one, then you can generate a new one with valid serial number with for instance the "Chameleon vizard" with Chameleon Vizard you can choose what mac computer your hackintosh should imply it is, "most often" it is best to chose mac model similar in specs to your hackintosh but the Mac Pro definition in Smbios.plist (Smbios.plist is in directory /Extra) most often works for most desktop systems but in some cases iMac definition gives somewhat better performance, and for laptops choose similar specced Macbook (Air,Pro) and for desktop using only graphics in the CPU then Mac Mini is most often similar, but this is a trial and error testing to find out what is best for each system.

Thanks for fast reply. I tried both of them. I tried adding verified serial and random serial from chameleon wizzard. (I tried macpro 3,1 and iMac) But still nothing. No, I don´t have smbios from the old instalation.

BTW, I know, that I have to choose similiar system as macpro 3,1 or something like that. but I have AMD. So what do you prefer?


PROCESSOR: AMD Fx-8120, 8 CPUs -3.1Ghz
RAM- zeppelin 1333MHz, 8GB
MOTHERBOARD: ga-990-fxa-d3
GRAPHICS: nVidia geforce gtx 750 Ti 2 GB

Hello SanduQi.

You should have a sound system, at least you have the serial OK. But as you know the serial is not all it takes to get the Appstore and the other Apple connections working.

The net fix worked for me, i.e. I had to place the files in their correct places my self (replace the originals) I downloaded the files from another thread in this web site and after that (note I had upgraded to 10.10.1 from Apple).


There might be one another possibility, although I am not sure but that is to place the file FileNVRAM.dylib in /Extra/modules, you should be able to google and download this file and try it out. In previous versions of OS X this worked to enable iMessages.

    • 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
    • i also have this problem if you will finde the solution please inform me right away and thank you
