    • 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.    
    • Only if you have 2 partition or 2 hard disk because Sierra and yosemite includes the same folders for system files like application there within safari etc utilities it will overwrite so you have to install it on a different hard disk or shrink/split your volume in 2 partition so just split 1 harddisk in 2 partitions   BTW: You need to search the tutorial (how to partition 1 hard disk in 2 partition for hackintosh etc....) it doesnt matter which search term you use you got to search it on google bc im not gonna advertise other tutorials for sites maybe you can find a tutorial on https://hackintosh.zone look in the forums there is something useful in here.
    • Use another tool or wait for a update or just do it like terminal way and then install uefi clover or legacy boot mode so hard shouldn't it be.

Triple Boot OSX Yosemite, Windows and Linux help with Grub


I recently successfully installed Hackintosh.Zone yosemite on my asus i97i-plus system. But now I want to be able to boot Linux (ElementaryOS (Ubuntu), Windows and Yosemite OSX, from one bootloader.


I tried chameleon. Chameleon does see Windows 8.1, but does not start windows successfully. Chameleon does not see Linux (even with Grub in de bootsector of the partition sda6).


So, Grub2 seems to me a better way to go.

Grub does see Windows and boot it successful and of course boot Linux (with different kernels).

Grub (update-grub) does not see my Yosemite Chameleon install. I did try to modify /etc/grub.d/40_custom in different ways, but none of them did work.


Can anyone help me with Grub and OsX?


My partition layout is: (lsblk)



sda 8:0 0 223,6G 0 disk

├─sda1 8:1 0 300M 0 part NTFS rescue

├─sda2 8:2 0 100M 0 part /boot/efi EFI

├─sda3 8:3 0 128M 0 part Unknown msftres

├─sda4 8:4 0 143,9G 0 part Windows 8.1

└─sda6 8:6 0 79,2G 0 part / EXT4 ElementaryOS (Ubuntu)


sdb 8:16 0 1,4T 0 disk

├─sdb1 8:17 0 200M 0 part HFS+ EFI

├─sdb2 8:18 0 232,6G 0 part HFS+ OSX-Root

├─sdb3 8:19 0 619,9M 0 part HFS+ Recovery OSX

└─sdb4 8:20 0 1,1T 0 part HFS+ OSX Data


sdc 8:32 0 1,8T 0 disk

├─sdc1 8:33 0 15,3G 0 part [sWAP]

└─sdc2 8:34 0 1,8T 0 part /home EXT4 Linux home


Grub is installed on /dev/sda and /dev/sda6. The pc boots from SDA.

I think elementaryOS is not linux but an ubuntu based distribution.


Any how, you should install the grub bootloader on sda6 alone.


I had done it before, see below. I only have 500GB and partitioned it.




I had tried Luna(grub bootloader) on it, following this guide and successfully made it worked.


Im now experimenting Quad booting on my Fujitsu, currently Chameleon can see and boot on Fedora.

Wndows81, Yosemite, Fedora and Arch Linux using Chameleon as the main bootloader.


Which partition is your default 1st boot?

:D Believe me, Elementary OS (a Ubuntu derivative) is a full Linux distro! Just Like Ubuntu itself is full Linux.


Do you mean I have to remove grub from sda?


My UEFU computers boots Grub from /dev/sda and the default os to boot is Elementary. But When I boot the OSX harddisk (UEFI F8 selection) then that is the default.

yeah I think so, we'll wait for the final release of Freya. :D


I finally manage to make a quad boot just now.


Try to remove the grub on sda


is there a Disable Secure boot on your bios settings?


Can you check the chameleon version your using?

Darwin/x86 boot v5.0.0.132 - Chameleon v2.2svn r2286 Build date: 2013-12-27 22:41:01


Secure is disabled in Uefi

I'l have to find ut how to remove grub on bootsector sda.


What bootmanager do you use on your quad boot system?

You might want to purge or remove it from sda.



Here's the demo


I install windows first, then Yosemite (installed Chameleon bootloader), then Fedora (install grub on its partition), then Arch (install grub on its partition). No extra editing on grub cfg files.


Basically Chameleon handles all those partition. If you will follow rehab's link, you will gain knowledge on multiple booting.
