[UPDATE! GRAPHICS WORKING] Some help getting my hackintosh 100% please (iCloud, Sleep issues)



I got Yosemite (10.10.1) installed! (But there are some issues...)


I'll start off with some information about my current build: AMD!

  • CPU: AMD FX-4150 (4.0GHz X4 - AM3 Socket)
  • MOBO: Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 (AMD 970 Chipset/NorthBridge) (AMD SB950 SouthBridge)
  • MEMORY: 8GB (4GB x 2) 1600MHz
  • GRAPHICS: Zotac NVIDIA GeForce GT 630 2GB
  • Audio ALC887
  • LAN: Realtek RTL8168/8111
  • STORAGE: SATA 80GB Hard Drive/Secondary

LINK: a html doc with my FULL system information

Some info about my install:


I can get it to install 10.10.1 (ZONES) from USB with the boot flags:

  • /amd
  • busratio=200 (without it computer restarts before it gets to install)
  • npci=0x300 (fixes PCI Config Begin)


SO! Thanks for reading that! Lets talk about the problems


[uPDATE! FIXED! See below]


First and most importantly my graphics is TERRIBLE.


From the install screen everything is extremely slow and laggy and hard to use because everything is a second or more behind my inputs. However I am able to get it to install without much issue (PS/2 keyboard doesn't work and I wish it would)


Now after the installer reboots everything boots fine however when it gets done booting I get no signal on either of the DVI ports nor the HDMI.

So after some research I find that in single user mode (-s) I can use the grafix backup:

fsck -fy
mount -uw /
grafix backup all

to remove the drivers and when it restarts I have signal! GREAT! However when I get to the login screen and beyond I have very VERY poor performance. Very slow and laggy graphics and animations, artifacts after moving things or opening menus and sometimes I am the missing menu bar (no maximize, minimize, exit visible just a grey bar however I am able to click it because I know where it is) (I will attach more pictures/maybe a video demoing this shortly)


[uPDATE! FIXED! See below]


LAN works great!

Sound not so much (very low quality/volume almost like listening to AM Radio)

PS/2 keyboard works if I unplug and replug


So to fix the issues I have tried

  • all combos of PCIRootUID=x GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No to no avil
  • Installing the NVIDIA web drivers but after restart I get no signal again and have to "grafix backup all" again putting me back to the same problem


I have done tons of research but cant find much on people with the same problem and what I have found I have tried to no avail.

Please help me! any input at all would be so helpful!, this is the furthest I have EVER GOTTEN EVER! And I can see the potential and can't wait to get it working perfectly.

Thank you so much for your time!
