    • 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.

OSX Mavericks Boots, Need Help With Several Issues

Question

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.
