Hello, I've been trying to install 10.10 on this laptop for 3 days now. I can get it to install but am plagued with issues after the install.

 

I will try and list all my laptop component that i can recall to help

 

chipset HM77

intel i7 3537U

Intel 4000HD

Nvidia 730M

changed wifi card to BCM supported card (works under 5,2 smbios)

 

1. When i install i need a smbios version of 5,2 to fix my wifi but the installer doesn't give me that option. so when i install my USB or Wifi doesn't work meaning i can't download the fixes off the internet. i have other laptops but as i mentioned the USB doesn't mount USB disks but will work if i plug a mouse of keyboard into them

 

2. when i install the voodoops2 kexts via the installer and then try and boot with just -v the ps2 kexts throw a panic.do i have to uninstall these kexts and install newer ones as i recall reading i do.

 

3. What settings do i use to get my graphics working properly? are there boot flags i can use so i don't have to keep running the installer in safe mode?  The flags i use are below as follows

 

kext-dev-mode=1 -v npci=0x2000 GraphicsEnabler=No dart=0 USBBusFix=Yes (if i don't use this i get failed to enumerate errors)

 

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated

 

thanks in advance

might be worth mentioning that niresh's installer pretty much ALWAYS fails to install for me. Although 10.10 is installed there seems to be things like the bootloader and god knows what else missing. i can boot into my installation with the USB though

    • I booted from the USB, selected "Yosemite zone", but this brings me back to the original problem. It is freezing on the hackintosh logo. Is there any way to solve this.
    • Well, the pkg is beginning to install High Sierra on my SSD, but then stops with the error code "could not be installed on this computer" 
    • I followed your tutorials which seems to be 1000% easy as its usually around the same as TonyMac, except your installs requires less to do and youve done most of the work too the package which makes it installing for us very easy. Now, the pic below shows a whole bunch of errors and I dont know why. Ive searched these forums and just like the title here, there is none which is odd, because from your tutorials, this shouldnt happen and it seems no one else is running into this problem, HOWEVER, if they did post something like this, Im 1, looking for the fix on high sierra, not sierra or tammy or roger or lutherin, 2 they need to check their titles again because its not helping anyone. I will say I did try installing Sierra Hackintish Zone version and it works all the way up to right after it installs, it tells me "it cannot be installed on this computer", SO....sigh, idk       So, to conclude, I do appreciate the devs here and much respect. Thanks for doing this. But guys, please help a bruh out and tell me how to fix this. Im using windows 10 as my main so do not tell me to go to do nothing on a mac, its the whole point of me coming here is to hackintosh. I do follow instructions fairly           well consider I teach Programming to the Military. My god bless this post and.....my soul too tbh <3       
    • Hello, I want to know what I have to do to install Kexts, use clover configurator, install bootloader, change resolution and how to use multibeast according to my hardware. I'm new to this mac configuration process. For now my hackintosh is pure, with no driver installed wifi, ethernet, graphics etc .. Sometimes when I start hackinstosh gives the Kernel Panic and stops loading on the apple screen, but I reboot and load normally. And also after a few minutes using the macOS it freezes the screen. I used the Hackintosh Zone Niresh Sierra because it was the only one that successfully installed on my notebook. My hardware is: Notebook Samsung Expert x23 Intel HD Graphics 5500 I5-5200U Processor Nvidia Geforce 910M 2GB 8 GB RAM HDD 1TB Bluetooth
