Failing to get an installation working on an AMD machine

Question

kenb    0

I'm a newbie and very stuck getting installed - i would really appreciate some help.

 

The PC I am using has an AMD Athlon II X4 630 Processor - 2.80 GHz. with 6GB RAM.

The Display Adapter is NVIDIA GeForce 9100

The OS is Windows 7 Ultimate, 64-bit.

 

I tried following the instruction post and the video instructions for installing on AMD machine, and failed miserably.  I was unable to get the computer to boot from the USB, with either the .dmg or the .iso file on it (put on the USB flash drive by means of Win32DiskImager, per the instructions text and video).

 

So I set up a VM using VMware Player version 6.0.6 build-2700073.  (I am  not sure if this is the right version to use - it was recommended by a comp sci lecturer).

 

I set up a VM using the Yosemite .iso file.  In the initial install i used an amd64 bootflag.  The VM opens to the Hackintosh splash page, and never gets further.  

 

The VM settings are:

4GB Memory

1 Processor

8GB Hard Disk (IDE)

CD/DVD (IDE) - using the Yosemite .iso file

Network Adapter NAT

Sound Card - Auto Detect

Display - Autodetect

 

The OS shows as Other-64-bit

 

Please help.  My goal is to get a machine going that i can use to load XCode for some coding. If anyone seeing this has any ideas of what i am doing wrong, and what I should do instead, please let me know.

It's useful if you provide a screenshot using the -v (verbose) bootflag.

    • 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.
