Install Help!

Question

TheChad    0

Hey all,

 

I just built a new computer, I make sure everything I purchased (hardware) was on the list of compatible hardware, Asus Z97-A Motherboard, Intel Core i5-4690K Processor, 8GB Ram.

 

I installed the Hackintosh Zone boot file to an 8GB USB drive, as directed by the guide.

 

I had to use -x GraphicsEnabler=yes PCIRootUID=0 maxmem=4096 to get the installer to load.

 

I am installing OSX to it's own HDD, a 3TB Seagate drive.   I read that OSX can't use more than 2TB (Seems odd)?  So I repartitioned to 1TB for the OS and 2 TB for storage..

 

Everything installed fine, it rebooted, was loading Hackintosh Zone loading screen, gets about 3/8 of the way threw loading, and locks up..

 

I shut the computer off, updated the BIOS to the latest Firmware, reset the BIOS settings to Optimized Defaults and set "Other OS" under Secure..

 

I finally was able to get it to boot into OSX!  But I HAVE to use -x in order to get it to boot with out freezing....  I BELIVE it is hanging up on the Audio driver I hear static out of the speakers and it hangs.

 

I use to be very computer savvy, but recently have gone threw stage 4 cancer/chemo and am seeming having to learn all the techie stuff over again..

 

I've never used OSX before,  I have used Linux/BSD in the past, but again that was before cancer/chemo and I have forgotten most if not everything I use to know about it..

 

I soo close to get this working, but I can't just take it somewhere and pay them to get it working!   So I need your help!

 

I guess the first think I need to figure out is, why do I have to use the -x flag to get it to boot?

 

Next what do I need to do to fix the Video/flicker issue..

 

Then, how to fix the Audio?

 

After I get everything working, I'd like to know if it's possible to have a graphical boot loader that would show an apple Image for OSX and a Windows Image for Windows and you just click which one to boot..

 

Thanks,

    • Hi guys, managed to make a hackintosh and everything is going great (Wifi, cpu ECT)   But it's pretty damn slow, i tried one of my favorite lightweight games to test (The Ultimate Doom) and it could barely run THAT! This is my first time and i have no idea how to get my 8570 to work.. Probably should have read a bit, eh? Lol.   And no I don't plan on using my hackintosh for gaming, but god so slow..   Thanks, help would be very appreciated. Edit: It's the dedicated version btw, and in about my mac I see "Graphics Display 3 MB" maybe the issue?  
    • Trying to boot to the installer but I get instant reboot after the following: I am using the following flag (I tried a variation - I need USBBusFix=Yes otherwise it fails even earlier): All my USB devices turn off just before it reboots, so I'm guessing it loses connection to the USB install media - but I can't work out why it's disabling all the USB's. My motherboard is an AsRock Killer Fatal1ty 990FX.
    • Saludos!   Tengo el mismo error (RAM a 667mhz), con una placa base ASUS (y mi cpu es el fx 6300).   Lograste solucionarlo?
    • Hi guys. Well, this is my second day of troubles, I touched everything, I installed max like 5 times in the same day, trying to figure out things and well. My Mac it display my graphic card on the #About this Mac tab With 2047MB ( So I guess all is right ) I installed the latest nvida drivers and on clover I activated the NvidaWeb. The problem is the resolution. Max resolution allowed is 1280 x 1024 and 800 x 600. I used to boot with nvd_drv 1 with nvd dry 0, I used to boot with all that things, and without them.  BUT No way to fix the resolution. Someone knows what-s going wrong and how can I fix it? Bdw im using iMac14,2 and OS X Sierra 10.12.3 Im connecting to the screen with DVI adapter. ( Maybe that causes the problem ) But it shows Im running 2047 MB so... idk why I can't change resolution. Thanks! ================================= SOLVED EDIT: Hi guys, in Display Resolution, I just set it in "Default for display" and after that pressing "THE WINDOWS BUTTON KEY, IN MY CASE, IDK WHAT KEY IS THAT IN MAC KEYBOARD, I THINK THE CONTROL ONE OR IDK" PRESSING that key I selected Scaled, and it appears more options and resolutions. There is a video on youtube about that called "Mac OS X Display Resolution" If someone has the same trouble.
