Need help to get my dual boot running


Need help to get my dual boot running

Hey and hello everybody!
After one week of reading about hackintosh, installing and troubleshooting, this is my cry for help:lol:

My system

MSI MS-7849 Motherboard
Toshiba 24GB SSD
Seagate Barracuda HDD, 1TB
Intel Core i7-4770K 
AMD Radeon R9 290

My plan

I am planning to install El capitan on one partition on the HDD, and later installing Windows on the SSD, if possible.

What I did/achieved so far

I successfully created the USB-Stick with the El Capitan installer via Unibeast. Added MultiBeast to the stick. I chose Legacy Mode, as my PC is running with BIOS. Did not choose to Inject ATI.
Disconnected everything from my computer except for one of the two displays, mouse and keyboard. Even unplugged the graphics board.
In my BIOS, i chose the AHCI mode, and set "BOOT OS" to "other". I wanted to turn Safe Boot Mode off but the SB option vanished after setting BOOT OS to other. BIOS is by American Megatrends.
I then went on to install Mac OS X on a newly created partition on the HDD after completely erasing both the SSD and the HDD. This was also successful.
After the first start, i copied MultiBeast to the desktop and chose the following:
- "Quick start": Clover Legacy Mode
- Audio driver: Voodoo (because i could not find out which codec my mainboard uses)
- Network driver: Realtek (still not 100% certain if this was the right choice)
The installation was completed successfully, so i went to shut down the PC. I then unplugged the USB and turned the PC on. Sadly, this is the point where luck left me. I was not able to start Mac OS again, i then thought "maybe the boot priority is faulty", so i restarted and pressed F8, the Menu gave me two options: The normal boot loader, and "generic card 1.00". I assume "generic card" may be the Clover BL, but anyway- both won't start. 
I then plugged in the USB drive, chose "USB" in the boot menu, clover appeared, i chose "Start Mac OS from HDD", the apple appeared, but then there was a long text for a very short time and the PC restarted (kernel panic?)

So, now i don't know what to do anymore. Maybe someone can help me? Thanks in advance, 

Eric, the ultimate hackintosh-newbie.

    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named" repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)
