Help with hackintosh terminology and descriptions

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I my very new to hackintoshing, i just finished installing osx 10.9 to my hp AMD laptop. I just had a few questions regarding the modded kernels, dsdts and kext.


1) Will installing a modded amd 10.9 kernel fix my wifi/ethernet problems or do i need that in conjunction with some 3rd party .kext?


2) What exactly is a DSDT and how can it make things more compatible?


3) what would get osx 10.9 to recognize my graphics a .kext, modded kernel or a dsdt?

Try to look for a .kext that match with your graphics and internet. Almost sure that some people over the internet had your same hardware that you before, and they made a guide or they upload the file.

Don't try to use DSDT at least they told you to.

1) modded Kernel creates some issues with Audio only ,,,i have not found with wifi or ethernet .

2)you can googled what really dsdt and why its important 

3)depend what hardwares you have or system specs ???

Thank you for answering, one more question though, do modded kernels come with the compatible .kext or are they just to get to startup?

    • Hello Hackintoshers! I'm almost finished with my hackintosh project, except I can't get my dual monitor setup to work. Here are my specifications: Motherboard: H110M PRO-VH Processor: Intel Core i5 3,19 GHz GPU: Intel HD Graphics 530 RAM: 16 GB So here's the problem: Whenever i boot with HDMI and VGA connected the monitor with VGA goes black and then it turns off. I'm a complete noob at hackintoshing so I don't know what to do. I'm gonna link my config.plist file.  This is urgent!
