New Hackintosh User In Need Of Help with Compatibility etc.

Question

I keep trying to install OS X 10.9 Mavericks with Niresh Installation but can't get it to work properly.

cpu: i5 3570k ivy bridge

Gpu: Radeon HD 7970

Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77 -V

Ram: Viper 1800x4gig =16gig total

SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 500Gig

Wifi: AsUS n66 USB

I don't really know what to check or uncheck on the "Custom" installation menu.

I don't know if I have to insert flags for compatibility issues.

Thanks for the help in advance!

There are few things that you must make sure in BIOS before you start Hackintoshing.

 

 

1. Make sure SATA mode of Hard Disk is set to AHCI instead of IDE.

2. Set BIOS Mode to Legacy from EFI/UEFI.
3.
Enable HPET and set its value to “64” in BIOS.

4. Enable Virtualization in BIOS. (Some guides say disable, both cases worked for me) 

5. Enable USB Legacy.
6. Make your First Boot Device to USB HDD.
7. Make sure you unplug all other USB Devices and other Internal Hard Drives. 

 

You haven't explained what you did so far and what are the errors you are getting.

 

Be precise and explain step by step. Then it will be easy for the community to find mistakes.

 

As a start, try these boot flags

 

-v GraphicsEnabler=No PCIRootUID=1 npci=0x2000

 

Check the Mavericks Installation Guide by Niresh in this website and check Mac Breakers guide on how to Install Niresh Mavericks.

 

http://www.macbreaker.com/2014/01/install-osx-mavericks-on-pc-with-niresh.html

 

Try these out and tell us what happens. Incase of errors, try to take some clear photos of your screen and post it here.

Here's the update of my verbose. I tried your flags with no avail.

**Photo to large to upload going to try and shorten it.**

You didn't tell us what steps you have done so far, or what flags you have used.

 

Here is what you must do,

 

You will need to remove the AppleIntelHD* and AppleIntelF* kexts from the installation on the hard drive.
 
You can do this from single user mode (-s).
 
Boot using the flag " -s " from your Mavericks Installation instead of your USB (Niresh-Mavericks)
 
Now you will enter the Single User Mode.
 
When you see the prompt "root:", type these commands one by one and press Enter. 
 
* Type: mount -uw /
 
* Type: cd /System/Library/Extensions
 
* Type : mkdir intel_back
 
* Type: mv AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelF* intel_back/
 
* Type: touch ../Extension
 
* Type: reboot
 
After rebooting, boot from Mavericks Installation using the flags you earlier used. And let us know the result.

You are welcome...

 

For the drivers part, download Chameleon Wizard (not boot loader) in this website and open it.

 

Select Builtin and select Boot0hfs and click install.

 

And in the second tab (org.chameleon.Boot.plist) select the boot flags you used and save it.

 

You don't have to use -s flag anymore...

 

Post a screen shot of your remaining problems.

    • Hi guys, I installed the Hackintosh Sierra Zone image and most things work except my graphics. It detects as AMD R9 290X when I use FakeID 0x67B01002 on boot, however I only get 7MB of VRAM with no QE. My screen also tears as well. Hope someone can help me - Intel Core i5 2500K - AMD R9 290X 4GB - ASUS P8Z77-V LX
    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have
