Mavericks isn't booting up

Question

Eloquenz    0

Hello,

 

sorry for the title. Don't know how to describe it any better.

 

My PC Build:

- Gigabyte 970A - DS3

- AMD Phenom II BE 955

- R9 270X

 

 

 

 

After trying to install Yosemite and failing I thought maybe Mavericks will work. 

The installation worked fine. The problems began at first time booting up after installation. I got Blackscreen and the system won't start. I did as in the guide advised:

 

 If You're Stuck at DSMOS Has Arrived

Reboot Using "-s" Kernel Flag (Without The Quotes)

type "fsck -fy" press enter (Without The Quotes)

type "mount -uw /" press enter (Without The Quotes)

type "grafix backup all" press enter (Without The Quotes)

type "reboot" press enter (Without The Quotes)

After that fix and bootflag -x my OS X booted up. Problem now is its slow, I think my Graphics don't work as intended.  My network is working, which is nice.

I downloaded the r9 270x driver https://www.hackintosh.zone/file/208-amd-radeon-r9-270-270x-series/and installed it. 

Installation was successful but it still only boots up with bootflag -x. The graphics are still laggy and all, so my guess is that the driver/the graphic card still don't work as they should.

The resolution changed and if I don't do any action it looks quite nice.

 

Do you guys have any suggestions? Is my PC-build just not compatible to get a Hackintosh running?

 

 

EDIT: OSX is now booting up without -x and without any bootflags at all... BUT Graphics are still laggy, seems like the AMD R9 270X is not working with OSX.

@Eloquenz I understand this is a really late reply (sorry, I went offline for a while) - but I just took another look at your post.

It looks like your driver isn't working as you're having too boot into safe mode (-x), so that's why it's laggy as safe mode probably isn't running that driver.

    • Hey!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM com.apple.audio.DriverHelper[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named com.apple.bluetoothaudiod." repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)
