stuck at partitioning - OS X Maverick Zone Hackintosh 10.9.0 - Hackintosh Zone Jump to content

Question

Hi there!

 

I am a newbie regarding Hackintosh, so my question may be dumb but I cant solve it.

 

I have a HP Pavilion G6 2240sh laptop which is Hackintosh-compatible. I made a bootable usb stick with Win32DiskImager. I can boot from that without any problem, the install wizard starts up, but it stucked at the partitioning.

 

I have a hard drive with MBR, it's splitted to 3 parts (1 for windows, 1 for hackintosh and 1 for data). Windows have been already installed.

 

When I sould have to choose the partition where I want to install Mavericks, i dont see my hard drive in the list. When i open the disk utility, i can see it, but no modifications cant be made because i contantly get error messages without specs (Partition cant be mounted, cant be deleted and so on). I have already tried to make an empty "partition", in that case i could make a partition but the process is stucked at prepairing phase and after some minutes its freeze.

 

How could i solve this? Maybe I should reformat my whole hard drive?

 

Thanks for you answers in advance!

 

Best Regards

Zoli

Well, I think the problem is not the bios settings. I checked it but i didnt find sata configuration menu in my BIOS. I google'd it and found out these: http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-PCs-Pavilions-Presario/Pavilion-G6-2127TX-option-in-BIOS-to-set-IDE-mode/td-p/5798071#.UuPVUrSCvIU

Regarding these my SATA have been already set to AHCI. Now i try to install the latest sata ahci controllers and stuffs which may help me. I will keep you updated if I get anything positive :D

Finally I got enough time to figure out what the problem is. :)

 

I updated my bios and firmware of my ahci controller and now everything is working fine. o/

 

Customization: uncheck GraphicEnabler, check the IGPEnabler and move Intel kexts. After installation, hackintosh booted without any problem, in addition windows, too. I didnt even have to use any magic in boot files. For Pavilion G6 2240sh, everything seems to be working, except the wifi card (Ralink RT3290), as i know i should have to replace that with a new card.

 

Thanks for the help and, of course, thanks for the firmware :D

I tried it, but it doesnt work. After installation I got an application named "ralink wireless", but i cant open it. I mean i clicked on it, but after long minutes, nothing happened. I checked my hardware in terminal (lspci -nn) and the osx doesnt recognized my wireless card, it is still marked as "unknown device". In addition it seemed to mess up my usb tethering, but i fixed it. I think a wifi usb stick would be the perfect solution as i dont want to violate the warranty :)

 

Anyways, thanks for the tip, @Deepak :)

    • 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.
