New Installation With Partitions

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

    Most of the Hackintosh Installation guides that I have read claim to require the re-formatting of the FULL Disk in order to make an installation.

I have just been succesful Installing Hackintosh Zone 10.10.2 directly into an HFS+ Partition and keeping the other partitions untouched.

    I have installed HAckintosh Zone using the recommended practise ... but did the following to get it install into a partition WITHOUT having to delete or re-format the whole disk ... thus I was able to retain my original Windows Installation on a Lenovo, that also had a secon install of Ubuntu Linux and after this I was just able to add in the Hackintosh.

   By Default the laptop now boots with the HAckintosh and if I want to go to Windows or Linux, I simply have to activate the bios menu and select one of the other windsows or ubuntu boot options.

   Here is the process ....

     1. In your existing drive, simply use Parted Magic and create an HFS+ partition, name it as MacInstall.

     2. Boot up Hackintosh Zone from USB

     3. Begin Installation of Hackintosh Zone...

     4. When Hackintosh Zone comes up ... from the standard Hackintosh Install process -- SKIP the Disk Format and Partition process as we have externally created a Partition for HFS+ using Parted Magic.

     5. Hackintosh Zone will show the available partitions and The MacInstall partition also.

     6. Simply choose the MacInstall partition and proceed to Customize ...

     7. Rest follows f rom HAckintosh Installation guides !!

 Works like a charm, after Multibeast and all of that !!!


Cheers !!

    • 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[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!
    • ASUS laptop X550D can run hackintosk ? help me ! please!!!   thanks alot
    • Oh, thank you but in the meantime I thought again and have installed High Sierra instead. It works just fine, put a camera, bluetooth, wifi, all working OK. I only have to solve a little problem when doing restart it freezes but after shutdown it comes up good! I have also Win7 on same mbr disk and I start with the installation usb but I think go over to EasyBCD to make a smoother boot. If your experienced I would appreciate very much any hints for helping me in this direction.
