Installation Issues With AMD - Hackintosh Yosemite - Hackintosh Zone Installation Issues With AMD Jump to content

Recommended Posts

I tried to install Yosemite 10.10, the first release by Hackintosh Zone for AMD processors, and had no success as I was always stuck between the boot and login screen, the only way i would make it past was in safe mode which is almost useless.

Has anyone had any success on an FX-8xxx Series CPU with the latest version of Yosemite-Zone (10.10.1). If so, what boot-flags do you use? 


My build:
CPU: AMD FX-8320, 3.5ghz

Ram: 10Gb DDR3
Graphics: Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 1GB
MoBo: ASRock 990FX Extreme3 AM3+

i use for install boot flag /amd npci=0x2000 with Amd FX 8350.

In the Volume Selection menu Select the Volume and select Customize 

then select the npci=0x2000 for bootloader.

Try GraphicsEnabler=No for your video card.

Well I have an AMD processor myself and I faced many problems with Yosemite!
The solution for me was to choose as the host os "Windows" instead of "Mac".

However notice that if you use VMware, after choosing "Windows" as host os and before running your virtual machine, go to:


find the .vmx file, edit it with notepad, find the line: firmware = "efi" and remove it.

Hope it helps!


EDIT: The "Windows" selection as host os only work in vmware! In virtualbox select mac 10.9
