Recommended Posts


i have successfully installed Niresh 10.9 Mavericks but I removed my Windows 8.

I have tried to install Windows 7 and Windows 8 with Usb stick, but when I boot with it.. nothing happens.

I have my hard drive partitioned, because i want a Dual Boot.

And I cannot choose Uefi mode or something in BIOS.


Can someone help me?


P.S. Sorry for my bad english(I am German).

good morning. uefi is a bios type.  if your just going to install 7 don't worry about the ahci versus ide mode in your sata settings since you already have maverick installed.  as far as your partition for 7 format it ntfs and set it to primary not logical.  once you have the format on the partition rightclick the partition and select modify and set it to active.  you can use partition wizard's boot disk to do this.  just download the iso and use whatever program you prefer to burn it to a cd.  from what i've been told for what i want to do i need to do 7, 8.1, and then mavericks in that order.  i'm assuming that's because there's a chance windows might balk at the unknow partition you have for osx and give you trouble.  anyway i hope this helps.

    • Hi, i tried to install high sierra on my hp computer, i created the partition on windows, i copied the sata-100-unssuported.kext to /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other but my intel SSD does not show up at the disk utility at all, my bios does not have options to change sata to ahci or any other option, and i read something about mbr patch which i dowloaded but there is no guide on what to do with it, any help would be really appreciated. Thanks
    • i tried this in last hours, but nothing. i tried to boot on an acer aspire (specs are almost the same) and it boots (stuck on logo but boot), i guess that problem is mine laptop?
    • Hi!
      As a first try with hackintosh I succesuffy installed High Sierra on a Dell PowerEdge T20. It works fine, but as I start scrolling in a web-browser the screen starts flickering. It only recognises my screen as a secondary projector, and can't change resolution from 1920x1080.
      How do I fix this?
    • I've downloaded the nvidia webdrivers but obviously nv_disable=1 disables them. I've tried booting with nv_drv=1 among other boot flags and the boot always hangs at the bluetoothhci starts completes line. Gfx is gfx 750ti cpu is amd phenom ii x4 965 deneb black edition. Motherboard is m4a88t -v evo/usb3 Couldn't edit to add this info, I installed using niresh mav 10.9 using boot flags dart=0 npci=0×2000 and nv_disable=1 as well as /amd64. I've successfully update to 10.9.5
    • To me it sounds as if he/she installed MacOS on their PC without understanding what they are doing, since they are asking to return to Windows 10.   My thought was, to allow them to start over with the installation, but with help from the thread.
