how can i dual boot yosemite with windows 7 already installed?

Recommended Posts

Really hope some kind soul can help.

im downloading the DMG of yosemite right now to make my bootable USB so i can dual boot as i used to (mavericks and win 7)

my PC has windows 7 installed already and i dont want to ruin my windows id love to be able to install as dual boot with my windows partition left intact.

 

can i do this by usign the windows disk manager to make a new partition and the nformating it to OSX extended (journalled) as i think if i use the mac usb to partition to GERD i will lose all of my data right?

Step 1) Make a Partition in windows partiton manager. DONT FORMAT IT!
Step 2) Get GParted and put it on an extra CD/DVD or USB

Step 3) Boot GParted and when it opens just wait and use all the defaults.

Step 4) In GParted format your partition in hfs+
Step 5) Go back in windows and put the dmg on the USB (Find a tutorial to do this is TransMac)
Step 6) Reboot your pc and boot your USB.

Step 7) When at the "Choose your disc to install" go to the top, Press Utilities and then Disk Utility

Step 8) Click your partition for OS X and goto the top and press File then Enable Journaling
Step 9) Close Disk Utility and choose your OS X partition
Step 10) Done (Im looking for a boot manager tho like grub.)

    • Recently I tried to install Sierra Zone Hackintosh onto my Dell Inspiron N5567 Laptop. Installation was pretty fine. It booted up so well. The problems started during the post-installation process. Audio kext worked properly after some reinstalling. Wifi, Ethernet, and Bluetooth was unable to configure. When installing the graphics kext for Intel HD Graphics, it got installed properly and after restarting my laptop, there was a black screen after my Clover bootloader and it gets shut down.    My Laptop Specs: Dell Inspiron N5567 Intel Core i5 7200U 8GB DDR4 SODIMM RAM  AMD Radeon R7 M445 Graphics  2TB Hard Drive   The Drivers Include: Intel AC3265 Network/WiFi drivers Realtek ALC 3246 Audio Drivers Intel HD 620 Graphics Drivers AMD Radeon R7 M445 Graphics Drivers.   Please do consider this issue and come up with any solutions. I have checked youtube. No one has Hackintosh installed Hackintosh on the very same laptop series. Please help.

    •     Getting problem with installing macos Sierra on a dell latitude E5520, I tried the usb boot on a hp computer and there it worked. But on the dell i get the error as in the picture. What's can i do for fix this?
    • I've added every kext possible, Lilu, IntelGraphicsFixup, changed my config settings nothing so far has worked. I tried asking for help on the tony mac forums, but was banned the minute I sent the progress report they asked for, for software piracy. (which makes no sense because any hackintosh is software piracy anyway) but regardless of that, I still have very choppy graphics, and only 4 mb of VRAM, as shown in the about my mac screenshot I linked below. Can anyone help?
    • Hi, 
      I finally decided to install macOS high sierra on my laptop - Lenovo IdeaPad 720S 15IKB.
      It has:   i5-7300HQ, Intel HM175
      12GB DDR4 RAM
      A Samsung 256GB NVMe Drive
      GTX 1050 Ti With Max-Q   The first try did not boot so i had to use some args to get it to boot. The first problem arises due to the fact that all available usb slots are usb 3.1. The installer did not recognise my keyboard and trackpad and i had to install some kexts to get them working. Well, after i intalled the kexts, It was stuck in a boot loop. I was fed up and it was late so i decided to download hackintosh zone from niresh. I would install it later. Well, when i run hackintosh zone it gets stuck at the apple logo after loading. I ran it in verbose mode and it gets stuck in the following   [Date] localhost com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] <Error>: Host-level exception raised: pid = 541, thread = 0xbf1f, exception type = 0xd, codes = { 0 }, states = { 0 }
      busy timeout[0], (240s): 'AppleEFIRuntime'
      busy timeout[1], (240s): 'AppleEFIRuntime'
      busy timeout[2], (240s): 'AppleEFIRuntime'   Then the screen goes blank and it starts over. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
