Reboots after i try to boot into installer


Hi there !

I am need of some help at the moment , and i also have some questions.I have tried researching the answers to these questions online , but the answers seem to vary from site to site , so i am going to try and post here ! P.S i dont currently own a mac :/ , so i am not able to use unibeast or multibeast

Firstly , here are my specs :

AMD FX 6300

Zotac Nvidia Ge Force GTX 750 Ti

Gigabyte 78LMT-USB3 Motherboard

If there are any other specs i need to tell you , please ask :-)

Question 1: Can running a hackintosh cause hardware damage in any way ?

Question 2:  I have burned niresh distro which has osx 10.8 on to a 4.7gb cd-r , and have attempted to boot the installer . I entered amdfx and -v as a boot flag, and it will print about a screen full of output , With the only errors being No DSDT found, ACPI Table not found, Not an Intel platform:Restart Fix Not Applied. I have attached a photo of my pc just before it restarts.

The last line of output on the screen is Legacy USB Off Done , and then it will pause for a second , and restart my pc. I dont understand what i am doing wrong here ?

Question 3: Am i able to dual boot windows and osx on my pc?

Question 4: Does anyone have links to some kexts which work with the GTX750ti , as i cannot find them anywhere :(

Question 5: What is the latest version of osx my pc supports, as I dont have a clue.


Thank you for any help people are able to provide ! , i do greatly appreciate it.

/amdfx npci=0x2000

and after install, for first boot use:


ok i managed to get it to a further stage in the boot progress of the installer. It now stops at pci configuration begin , and then restarts after 15 seconds or so. :-( thank you for your help so far by the way ! :D

    • Hi guys, I installed the Hackintosh Sierra Zone image and most things work except my graphics. It detects as AMD R9 290X when I use FakeID 0x67B01002 on boot, however I only get 7MB of VRAM with no QE. My screen also tears as well. Hope someone can help me - Intel Core i5 2500K - AMD R9 290X 4GB - ASUS P8Z77-V LX
    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have      
    • Hi everyone. Here are my specs MOBO :Gigabyte Z68 XP UD3 (1155) GPU : HD 6870 1gb CPU Intel i7 2600k (1155) 60gb SATA SSD   MOBO is using legacy Bios. This machine has served me well for years. I tripped a circuit breaker a few weeks ago and now it's stuck in a boot loop. I have setup a new bootable USB to reinstall but for some reason the boot loop is happening when I startup from this as well. I can manage to get to the desktop using the safe mode boot flag (-x) but after a few moments, the desktop freezes and the computer reboots. I used the 10.10.1 disc image to create the new USB stick I am not sure if this could be causing the boot problem in the USB. Should I have used the 10.10.0? At first I suspected a hardware issue but I left the computer on for two days at in the bios screen and it stayed on just fine. Hoping someone can give me a hand figuring out which boot flags can get me going again or how I can reinstall the OS. I really need to get past the freeze/reboot cycle I am in. I am almost ready to nuke this thing and install windows
    • i also have this problem if you will finde the solution please inform me right away and thank you
