RTC : Only single RAM bank (128 bytes) error


avenue111    0

CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 250 @ 3.0 Ghz
RAM: 6GB DDR3 Transcent 1333 MHz, 1x2GB + 1x4GB
GPU: VTX3D Radeon HD4670 1GB
HDD 1: WD Green 160GB
HDD 2: Not really sure which one, it is SATA and im installing it there

That is my configuration.

I downloaded the dmg image from the site, used TransMac to put it on my usb and I switched the settings I could in BIOS (virtualisation, S3 mode, AHCI on SATA options). Now, I booted with /amd and it stuck at the boot screen, as you can see.


Then I tried to boot with /amd npci=0x2000, same thing happened. So then I booted with the same bootflags and added maxmem=4096, I got the same screen that I stuck on, except when I moved my mouse, the loading bar actually filled, but just like 0,5%. I went to verbose to see why is it stuck there, same bootflags, but I tried /amd64, so it was exactly like this /amd64 -v npci=0x2000. It lead me to that same error like the title suggests: "RTC : Only single RAM bank (128 bytes)" stuck there, won't move anywhere. What should I do? I was looking around and I didn't find anything relevant to this error on Yosemite.

Also, when I boot up (I have HDMI to DVI cable, my screen is 21,5'' 1080p, and has DVI output so DVI is in screen and HDMI is in the PC), it happens to stay a bit tiled, so the screen (this is happening with the POST screen as well) is a bit cutoff, looks like its zoomed out, slammed in the middle of the screen, not stretched out. Any reason why that is so, or is it just GraphicsEnabler?

EDIT: I tried to boot /amd1 -v npci=0x2000 maxmem=6144 and it got me past that RTS thing but not very far.

If you can't read it, it says
USBF: 6.401 AppleUSBEHCI::CheckSleepCapability - controller will be unloaded across sleep

USBF: 6.403 AppleUSBEHCI::CheckSleepCapability - controller will be unloaded across sleep

USBF: 6.457 AppleUSBOHCI::CheckSleepCapability - controller will be unloaded across sleep

USBF: 6.462 AppleUSBOHCI::CheckSleepCapability - controller will be unloaded across sleep


Now I'm stuck there and I don't know what to do next.

OK, so I used these kexts
/amd -v npci=0x2000 maxmem=6144 USBBusFix=Yes and I booted up the installer

Now, I installed with all default options, except I chose npci=0x2000 option, disabled GraphicsEnabler and I installed it. The installation was going great until the last minute, last 0,5 cm of the installer loading bar, then I got the message saying
"OSX could not be installed on your computer.

The operation couldn't be completed. Undefined error: 0 Quit the installer and restart your computer and try again.

Tried again with the same settings, same thing happened. I saved all the logs, only errors, errors and progress and all logs.

all logs.txt

errors and progress log.txt

errors only log.txt

Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

OK this time I disabled some kexts and after 5 tries I managed to install it

Booted up without the USB, with flags -v npci=0x2000 maxmem=6144 USBBusFix=Yes and I booted up almost all the way until it got stuck at this screen.




From what I've read, that slot 1 should be the GPU but also this power management issue is suspicious as well.

    • hi   ok I have been struggling with this for the past 2 weeks. I have installed and uninstalled Sierra more times than I can count and its been driving me potty .... have only cracked it today.  what you need to do is download create a vanilla usb stick with Sierra.  in order to do this I downloaded Yosemite.zone from the distroes  and created a usb stick.  the installed Yosemite once I was in Yosemite  ( the gfx work in this disto) I downloaded a copy of Sierra from the store..  you will have to search the net for the direct link.. I then created a bootable Sierra usb stick using unit beast, I selected legacy boot loader with no gfx injected. I then installed Sierra from this. once Sierra is installed boot from the usb and select your installed Sierra. iff all goes well you should have a working Sierra install with the gfx acceleration working.  I think the problem is with the type of Mac that Sierra thinks it is with everything working my system info is showing a iMac 27" 14.2 .  I have tried installing a boot loader on the main drive with no success so as a workaround you will have to use your usb stick. pics below of my system info  I hope this helped.  https://photos.app.goo.gl/PToVZOxq0UN9c5BR2 I also just noticed whilst I was trying to get thing working I copied a modified andradeonx4000.kext into the root drive of the Sierra stick. I don't know if this has had any effect on the install might be worth doing the same thing andy
    • Hello, I installed macOS High Sierra 10.13 on my Windows laptop. I installed them so I could dual boot them. It took me 2 day's to perfectionize the macOS because of the .kext files. All the Kext files went good except for graphic and Synaptics. If I install Synaptics, I can move the mouse but it zooms in and it gets stuck back into the corners. So I only installed Generic Touch Pad driver and that works fine. 

      Anyhow I thought everything was perfect until I opened Safari yesterday which came with glitches it stutters when scrolling. It's something like this https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=graphic+glitches+hackintosh only worse. I searched a lot but I found nothing on AMD drivers for my laptop. I really like this macOS, and I want it to be perfect. Is that possible? Maybe with another macOS type/version? O'yeah, when I log in, the vertical lines appear as in the youtube video is that normal or is that because I don't have an graphic driver installed? I really hope on some positive answers, and I thank everyone for his time to read and react on this. Thank you

    • Hello, I got macOS Sierra to work on my vostro 230 and I need to find drivers. I mostly just need graphics drivers (just integrated G41 graphics) and Broadcom Network drivers. > PLEASE DON'T GIVE ME AN EXPLANATION JUST GIVE ME DRIVERS. < CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 2.93 GHZ GPU: I could switch between a EVGA 610 or Intel G41 graphics.
