OSX Mavericks Boots, Need Help With Several Issues

Question

ZenShredder    0

Hello, so I'm new to the Hackintosh world but I've got my feet wet by attempting to install OSX Mavericks on my laptop. After a lot, and I mean A LOT of hours, trial and error, I've finally got it to boot and run the OS, which has been quite an accomplishment! However, there's still several lingering issues that are pretty vital to fix. I've done a lot of research on how to do so, but everything I've tried seems to be half-right or completely wrong and not work at all. Before I get started, let me list my system specifications, methods and steps I used to get to where I am now.

 

 

My Laptop:

 

Asus R510DP-RH11(based on the X550DP system)

 

APU: AMD A10 5750M @ 2.5Ghz 4 Cores/4 Logical

 

GPU: AMD Radeon HD 8650G+8670M 2GB

 

RAM: 2X4GB 1600Mhz

 

Drives: WD Black 2 Dual Drive(120GB SSD + 1TB HDD), WD Caviar Blue 5400RPM 2.5" Drive, CD/DVD R+W Optical Drive

 

Display: 1920X1080 LED @ 60Hz

 

 

 

1. Please note, OSX is NOT going on my Black 2 drive, Windows is currently installed on there and I don't want to mess with that. OSX is currently installed on my WD Caviar Blue drive, which is an internal drive from a previous laptop turned into a spare external drive to run OSX.

 

2. The boot flags I've used to boot into the installer successfully and install OSX are: amd -v cpus=1(this was extremely hard to get to believe it or not, I tried up to 7 or 8 boot flags simultaneously at some point just to get to where I am!)

 

3. I don't remember everything I customized when I selected how to install OSX, however I do remember turning off GraphicsEnabler, TRIM support for SSDs, selecting the Macbook Pro identifier and Chameleon Standard for my boot even though my motherboard boots in UEFI.

 

4. My BIOS are very limited, I can remove secure boot, fast boot and enable the other two features(I can't remember their names) to load the Niresh USB, but outside of that there's no option to disable APU graphics, no other "advanced" options except how the motherboard reads from SATA, etc.

 

-------------------------------------Troubleshoot Section-------------------------------------

 

 

Okay, so now that's out of the way, let me explain my current issues.

 

First off, OSX will not boot without the Niresh USB, I can select the drive and use the boot flags "-v" and "cpus=1" but without them or the drive, I cannot boot OSX at all. How can I make my drive independent and able to boot on its own? If I cannot, can I partition my WD Blue drive to have the Niresh USB and the OSX system so it only takes 1 USB port? If both are not an option, what options do I have then?

 

My second issue is with wireless and bluetooth capabilities, my wireless drivers are from Ralink, however I have no clue what my actual wireless card model is. It does not say what it is on the Asus website, in the device manager or in the manual. I attempted to load some Kexts that were supposed to work, but they did not. Is there an extra step I need to take in Terminal or Kext Wizard?

 

My third issue is my trackpad, the drivers for it aren't working at all. I honestly haven't attempted to fix this issue as it's been the least of my concerns considering that a wireless mouse can remedy this issue. However, I rely on a bluetooth mouse and not a wireless mouse to keep a USB port free, hence the conundrum of a catch 22(sort of).

 

My last concern, not the least however, is my graphics problem. The resolution is stuck below 1080p, I'm assuming at x768 or something close to 720, but not 1080. There are also several graphical glitches when loading Launchpad and Safari, I haven't opened everything yet so there could be other programs that are affected, but mainly the graphics flicker and disappear for 1/10th of a second when moving around within the application. As I said before I cannot disable the APU graphics within my BIOS, I'm perfectly okay with disabling the dedicated GPU because I don't plan to run graphic intense applications like Photoshop or ZBrush in OSX, mainly XCode for learning purposes and Garageband/Logic Pro for Audio design. As long as I can get one of the graphics cards to stop glitching out and functioning properly for my Hackintosh, I'll be happy.

 

 

Thanks in advance for your help and support, I do truly appreciate it. I will try to answer your questions as best and as quickly as I can, however I'm not an expert(at least with Mac) so bear with me please! Thank you.

    • Hey!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM com.apple.audio.DriverHelper[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named com.apple.bluetoothaudiod." repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)
