Yosemite on AMD Athlon X2 and NVIDIA 9800 GT

Recommended Posts

Hello to everyone! 

Yesterday i've tried to install the Niresh' Distro of Yosemite 10.10.

i have loaded the image file on the usb pen and i booted it. 

To boot it i write "/AMD" and it starts but at but some point to continue the installation I pressed the power button of the PC and so all uploaded.

I've accepted the contract and i use the Disk Utility to format the HD and to Install the MAC. I don't have switch the options. 

After the installation I followed this guide because i had the black screen issue. Fix grey white black screen (Case 1) 


After it i configured the first boot of the Yosemite and i had this horribile screen. post-18793-0-23879300-1419956530_thumb.j

Now my problem is "which kext I enter in the mac?"


Now i replace to you my PC settings:


Motherboard: AsRock K10N78M --> http://www.asrock.com/mb/NVIDIA/K10N78M/index.it.asp

CPU: AMD Athlon X2 240 Processor

Grphic Video: NVIDIA 9800 GT 512 MB

RAM: 4GB DDR2 Corsair

DVD drive: LG

The fan of the GPU is running at maximum and it is very boring!

Sorry for my bad english..i'm Italian! :)

Now i'm downloading the lastest release of Niresh..the Yosemite 10.10.1


If you need another info about my pc ask and i aswer to you. Thanks a lot! :)

Thats a graphics problem, you have to install the drivers for your video card, I dont know if your graphic card is compatible, but try installing the graphics kexts of nvidia, if you selected "backup graphics kexts " in the setup, they have to be in "volume/backup/kexts/graphics/nvidia/ " just install it with kext utility.


If it doesnt work, look here in the "downloads" section if there are drivers for your graphics card.

    •     Getting problem with installing macos Sierra on a dell latitude E5520, I tried the usb boot on a hp computer and there it worked. But on the dell i get the error as in the picture. What's can i do for fix this?
    • I've added every kext possible, Lilu, IntelGraphicsFixup, changed my config settings nothing so far has worked. I tried asking for help on the tony mac forums, but was banned the minute I sent the progress report they asked for, for software piracy. (which makes no sense because any hackintosh is software piracy anyway) but regardless of that, I still have very choppy graphics, and only 4 mb of VRAM, as shown in the about my mac screenshot I linked below. Can anyone help?
    • Hi, 
      I finally decided to install macOS high sierra on my laptop - Lenovo IdeaPad 720S 15IKB.
      It has:   i5-7300HQ, Intel HM175
      12GB DDR4 RAM
      A Samsung 256GB NVMe Drive
      GTX 1050 Ti With Max-Q   The first try did not boot so i had to use some args to get it to boot. The first problem arises due to the fact that all available usb slots are usb 3.1. The installer did not recognise my keyboard and trackpad and i had to install some kexts to get them working. Well, after i intalled the kexts, It was stuck in a boot loop. I was fed up and it was late so i decided to download hackintosh zone from niresh. I would install it later. Well, when i run hackintosh zone it gets stuck at the apple logo after loading. I ran it in verbose mode and it gets stuck in the following   [Date] localhost com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] <Error>: Host-level exception raised: pid = 541, thread = 0xbf1f, exception type = 0xd, codes = { 0 }, states = { 0 }
      busy timeout[0], (240s): 'AppleEFIRuntime'
      busy timeout[1], (240s): 'AppleEFIRuntime'
      busy timeout[2], (240s): 'AppleEFIRuntime'   Then the screen goes blank and it starts over. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
    • ASUS laptop X550D can run hackintosk ? help me ! please!!!   thanks alot
