New Hackintosh User In Need Of Help with Compatibility etc.

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

    • Oh, thank you but in the meantime I thought again and have installed High Sierra instead. It works just fine, put a camera, bluetooth, wifi, all working OK. I only have to solve a little problem when doing restart it freezes but after shutdown it comes up good! I have also Win7 on same mbr disk and I start with the installation usb but I think go over to EasyBCD to make a smoother boot. If your experienced I would appreciate very much any hints for helping me in this direction.

    • Hi, i am struggling with installation telling me that it needs less than one minute for eternity. in log it shows that "./postinstall: Using AMD Bronya Kernel" process is running, but 4 hours is too long for "Less than a minute" don't you think ;).    Please help me, i tried to install Mac OS on Intel and AMD processor PC, same problem.  
    • Hola, generalmente se postea en ingles.   Podrias dejar las especificaciones de tu tarjeta madre, por ejemplo: RAM PROCESADOR GPU ETC   Ademas de los componentes que tienes instalados... tengo una pregunta para ti.   Ya comprobaste la compatibilidad de tu ordenador con el sistema operativo?
