    • Help with Intel G530 graphics @Niresh I need your help please! On my desktop computer I have an Asrock H61M-VS mobo with Intel Celeron G530 CPU and integrated graphics. The only successful Hackintosh installation I’ve ever done is the one with your Sierra distro 10.12.3 in which graphics works perfectly. I wanted to ask you what did you put in your distro to make also G530 integrated graphics working. With every other way to install Hackintosh on a pc I’m unable to get to the installer as I’m stuck in verbose mode due to unsupported graphics. Please answer me, thank you so much!
    • Yes truely its possible to upgrade its kinda hard todo because if you have AMD Proccessor you need to wait until niresh releases a new hackintosh distro. and then make a backupwith time machine and install the newer mac from usb and then you will be asked to have your old data back from windows machine or from your old mac version which if you choose from mac all data will be copied to your new sierra from yosemite so you don't need to lose any data or backup everything on a different usb drive and then use time machine to recover files from usb if its possible because i never use time machine. If you don't want to recover any data then just click on configure as new mac. And it is safe to download app store updates if you have a good intel processor if you have amd you need to use a custom kernel which somebody has patched.   Just search on google with this search term: (example) hackintosh sierra amd patched kernel update 10.12.6 is the latest or you want to update yosemite to 10.10.5 search for update patched kernels amd 10.10.5   https://www.google.nl/search?q=amd+kernel+patched+hackintosh+yosemite+10.10.5&source=lnms&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiv5teI6ZzVAhUMmBoKHaHrAkQQ_AUICSgA&biw=1920&bih=925&dpr=1 Here is the search term i already have for you if its only what you need the search term i used =: amd kernel patched hackintosh yosemite 10.10.5 Or find on youtube a good video how to upgrade a hackintosh yosemite to sierra
    • Loos like a kext eror or a missing dependencie try to boot with -x for safe mode it disabled dangerous kexts to boot mac without issues and maybe by updating or find another or delete the highlighted kext that is causing a kernel panic   try also when you setup the mac try also with: -v -x xcpm kext-dev-mode=1 maybe that should initialize all kexts. Mostly a kernel panic will come if a kexts is required for booting the system is corrupted, missing or you must to update the kext because its outdated or you need to downgrade the kext to older version using kext wizard doesnt matter to install older or newer kexts supported for your lapotp model or desktop and the right mavericks so your system could boot normally.   i looked up for ya the patched kernel you use i think its not supported with your cpu and i think that will only cause more problems.   Bronzovka's (A.K.A. Bronyas) 10.9.0 mach_kernel_rc7     AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 250 AMD Opteron™ Processor 3350 HE AMD FX-8320 AMD FX-8350 AMD FX-8150 AMD Athlon™ X2 340 AMD Phenom II X4 955 [Black Edition] AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Intel Paxville Xeon DP AMD A8-4500m APU Others (Maybe others like i3 i5 i7 maybe not pentium D) im not sure but try to use the vanilla way. And the kernel extensions one of them are faulty. Like it says kernel extension in backtraces. i think you found your problem by download and replace the corrupted com.apple.kec.CoreCrypto kext which maybe can be found in /System/Library/Extensions so first try to reinstall from usb with original niresh kernel dont use amd kernel because you have intel and after it says installation complete... restart ETA like 10 seconds click restart you see a chameleon bootloader so as you mentioned in your problem then try -v -x xcpm npci=0x2000 dart=0 then setup the mac and reboot without -x  see if that works.

Unable to complete installation of Yosemite: partition force-unmounted by installer

Question

Hi,

 

So after spending 10 days in succession trying to (unsuccessfully alas!) install yosemite and not finding satisfactory help on other topics, I finally am going to start a new topic.

 

My PC configuration:

Acer Aspire 5750

Intel i3-2310 M Sandybridge processor @ 2.1 GHz

6 GB RAM

Intel HD 3000 Graphics

InsydeHD motherboard v1.21 (downloaded from acer official website)

 

So, I read through Mac Breaker's acticle and many of the articles in tonymacos86 website, for boot flags support, and I have the following error:

No matter what combination of bootflags I use, the installer says 'Cannot install Mac OS X because 'xxxxxx.pkg' could not be installed. Here is the main problem because of that: when i reboot, I do not see the mac OS X partition while booting from the USB installer!! Hence, cannot use multibeast or any other tool.

 

I thought that if i could at least boot into the partition, I could use MultiBeast or some other tool to install the required kexts, but alas - I am helpless!!!

 

In the period of 10 days - I was able to successfully install Yosemite 2 times but each time something or the other was not working (Audio or network or graphics, etc.). While I was trying to fix them using Multibeast, I encountered kernel panics and hence sought to re-install again.

 

While installing, I ensured that I opened terminal and checked the installer for errors using the command: '/sbin/fsck -fy' and then '/sbin/mount -uw /' to check the root partition of the installer and then mount it as read-write. I also 'erased' the partition (on which I am going to install Mac OS X) multiple times using various security levels... but in vain....

 

I am attaching 3 installer logs - each with a minor change in install flags...Installer Log 01-25-15.txtInstaller Log 01-25-15-Second.txt and Installer Log 01-25-15-thirdtry-new-partition.txt...

 

I also got a DSDT.aml from a website for my same motherboard (the first installation used the motherboard's default SSDT tables, for the second and third attempt I used the DropSSDT=Yes and DSDT=/Extra/DSDT.aml flags - i coped the DSDT.aml to the installer's folder using TransMac but still no change in results)

 

My bootflags: The IGPPlatformID is from tonymacosx86's website for intel hd 3000 graphics.I tried with and without PCIRootUID with no change

 

'-v -f ForceHPET=Yes IGPPlatformID=00301000 ahcidisk=1 debug=8 -force64 GraphicsEnabler=No PCIRootUID=1 EnableDualLink=No GeneratePStates=False GenerateCStates=False DSDT=/Extra/DSDT.aml DropSSDT=Yes maxmem=4096'

 

I installed with SMBIOS of Macbook Pro 8.1 since it too uses intel hd 3000...

 

As you can see, I tried all possible boot flags but still unable to boot from OS X itself - Cannot see installed partition.

 

My error (figured it out from installer log): If you go down to the post-install period, you will see that the installer attempts to install the boot loader. Then all of a sudden - it says 

 

./postinstall: Volume WillItWork on disk2s5 force-unmounted

I had become tired and named the supposed boot partition to 'Will-It-Work'....  :(

 

After the partition is unmounted - the installer tries to access it - which results in the error.

 

No matter which packages I disable during the customization, I get an error saying '<insert-some-other-package-name> could not be installed on your computer'

 

@ or @Anyone: Any help????

 

Great job creating this distro!! I never knew until I came across this website that you could install mac os on windows... :)

 

But, I think I am missing something.. :wacko:

 

Can you help me?

Not bad sectors but there will be problem while reset many times on hard disk, you should backup data and recreate partitions.

You can try my suggestion:

 
I think that there are USB vs Hard disk. it was bad sector therefore, it can not access to install. You can use any partition tool to fix it like Acronis Disk Director home in Hiren BOOT, then format USB and Hard disk. Recreate usb installer
 
Good Luck

i don't wish to format the hard drive entirely as i have important data in it. Right now, I am creating a new partition in it and then attempting to install mac on it. 

 

I checked for bad sectors using the 'aoemi partition wizard' software and it said that the hard disk was ok.

Are you sure that there is no other error in the log file (i do not understand what is logged in there)?

So guys, the issue was with the installer hard disk (and/or the target hard disk partition)!!

 

Typing this from a (almost) fully working yosemite hackintosh!!! 

 

Thanks a lot to nourish and other developers who created this distort - it worked like magic 

 

p.s. strangely, i didn't have to change any customization options except check SMBIOS as macbook pro 8.1... I didn't use any extra bootflags!!

 

So, hackintosh yosemite works peacefully on acer aspire 5750! :)  

 

p.p.s: how do i enable the cool touchpad gestures of a mac?

Glad to hear it worked out, do you mind posting what you did to get it to work?  Thanks :)

1. Get a bootable yosemite drive (followed hackintosh instructions)

2. Booted from it and chose a new partition that i created

3. Boot flags: None!

4. Customization: SMBios as macbook pro 8,1

5. Network, battery kexts from here: 

6. Touchpad kexts from here: https://www.hackintosh.zone/forums/topic/4357-erro-niresh-109-mavericks-appleps2trackpad-synaptics-touchpad-v75-iobluetoothhcicontroller-help/

 

NOT Working:

1. USB 3.0 - Doesnt matter for me since I run Mac OS X from an external hard drive which i plug into the usb 3.0 port. Existing solutions (from www.hackintosh.zone and other websites) do not seem to work. But still seeking solutions.

2. HDMI Audio - Tried existing solutions. Did not work. Tired of searching for solutions. Still seeking solutions.

Ah ok.  But how did you overcome the problem you had before?  I am having the same issue of the incomplete installation, with the exact same error message and unmounting of the partition.

Did you have to repartition the entire drive?  Thanks :)

I have already replied before, but here it is again:

 

I got a new pen drive and put the iso file in it via transmac.

I formatted the partition i was about to install mac into once again.

I rebooted via the new pendrive and everything just worked. I didnt hope for it to work. Just gave it a last resort attempt. I still do not know for sure that the old pen drive was the issue.... You too can try doing the same.
