Success! - Hackintosh Mavericks - Hackintosh Zone Jump to content

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I'm new to the hackintosh scene, but old to the hacking scene. After 2 frustrating weeks I have finally successfully installed OS X Mavericks on my computer, to be Dual-booted in the bios along with Windows 8. If you have a motherboard like mine or similar, I can give you the bios settings because they are tricky and I have no HPET setting in the bios. It took a lot of trial and error but I have everything working flawlessly. I installed after writing the .dmg to usb drive via Transmac. Then boot through USB in the bios. Okay. here's my specs. PM me if you need help. Oh, and my system is o/c'd and running cool and quiet with no problems in OS X either.

 

AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE C2 @ 3.66 GHz

M4A87TD - EVO motherboard by ASUS

8 GB G.Skill Ripjaws @ 1200 MHz (Underclocked for tighter timings)

Gigabyte Radeon HD 6850OC - 1GB DDR5

Dual WDC 5000 and ST31000528AS Drives (yep, 4 drives. I used to run dual RAID's until I got curious about OSX)

 

 

Thanks again, Niresh!

Please share the BIOS settings on thread . I am having a M4A89GTD PRO and am stuck at PCI Configuration begins.

Ugh, I wish I could get my install to work :( I am only going for 10.8.5 because I'm not sure about Mavericks. I would strongly recommend 10.9 after looking at your system. I tried 10.8.5 first and half my hardware wasn't recognized. I don't have the patience to search around for working drivers. Trust me on this one.

Well installation finally went all the way through, using a USB instead of DVD.  My wife got it to boot once after restart and it told her to restart again and now we can't get it to work.  Hard thing is I'm at work and she's at home playing with it lol.  Now we just get a black screen in verbose mode or the apple logo without it, any ideas?

Hmm....something's holding up the install. Let your wife know she has to disconnect any extra USB stuff, and re install - Or try pushing F8 just after the BIOS screen so it hits the Chameleon boot loader. From there she can enter boot commands.

 

Seeing your system, I would make sure I am typing at the boot menu amdfx -v maxmem=8192.

And that's the stuff. When I first installed Mavericks I had a few usb extras plugged in and the install went whacked. After install they went fine. Oh, and if it freezes on the registration screen, just leave it for 20 minutes.

    • I have the updated Lilu.kext loaded and now tried loading the Nvidia GraphicsFixup.kext too. With the GT 610 installed, there is no difference (no difference with the HD4600 either). I posted a photo where it repeats over and over (3rd item in this Photos album) https://www.icloud.com/sharedalbum/#B0f5M7GFPGEAfHW Should I try re-installing HS with your new AMD release? Try a different video card? Any help is appreciated Niresh! Martin
    • @Niresh i forgot to say that that error was given because i have a Samsung M2 NVMe 960pro. I tried to remove it and it kinda worked but with a lot of bugs even during the installation. I can't remember everything clearly now cause it's been like 4 months ago
