Help me figure out a way to install hackintosh on E1-510!

Hello everyone!

I need some help installing Hackintosh on a Acer E1-510 Laptop!
I've heard of a guy on this forum who somehow managed to install niresh 10.10 on it but I've been struggling for such a long time and I can't find a way to even make it boot up..
Any help with what im doing wrong?
I mostly end up on a black screen

I have the same laptop and wasn't able to install macOS on it either. The BIOS only accepts certain filesystems, thus you can only install windows 8, 10 or Linux on it. At some point I managed to boot into clover, but as soon as I wanted to start the installation, my laptop rebooted. I worked around it by installing a lightweight linux distro instead, and ran macOS on it in virtualbox. (You can do it from windows too, but Linux uses less resources -> more RAM available for the VM :P)

Next week I will look at it again. The connector of the power button is broken, next week I'll get the replacement :D

Yeah I saw his post, but I've never been able to install it. When the laptops came out there was a restriction on the BIOS, it didn't even let you install windows 7. Only windows 8.1 and linux (mine came with puppy linux pre-installed). Later Acer made a BIOS update available for legacy support, which allowed me to boot into Clover but as soon as I hit the installer entry, my laptop just rebooted. So it's either the BIOS that says no, or it's because of the CPU that isn't supported. :P In case of the CPU, you could try to work around that by using FakeCPUID in Clover.

The power button board replacement came today. Downloading macOS now. I'll report back later. Just a side note, even If macOS will run on it, the graphics are not supported.

    • Hello everyone,  I'm trying to install High Sierra (with AMD support) on my AMD 4500m Lenovo G505s laptop. When booting from Clover in EFI with i get some really fast screen log then the pc reboots. Now, i know there isn't a way you could help me without some info/logs, unless i'm missing a major malfunction known on these kind of laptops, so, do you know a way i could prevent it from rebooting in order to at least understand what is causing this problem? Do you think even trying to put OSX on this laptop is worth it? Thank you.
    • Hello, i am trying to install High Sierra on my ASUS X75VB but i am getting multiple errors with the ACPI.
      I believe it is CPU related?

      Mainboard: HM76 (X75VB SOCKET 0)
      CPU: Intel Core i5 3320m (Not the original CPU of this laptop!)
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000 & NVIDIA 2GB Geforce 740M
      RAM: DDR3 8GB
      Storage: 120GB SSD (SATA-2)

      I have used the DSDT.aml & SSDT.aml from the following resource:
       https://github.com/xxx10101xxx/ThinkPad-X230-macOS/tree/master/i5-3320M

      My config.plst can be found here:

      Thanks in advance!

    • I have Yosemite Zone working on Virtualbox fine.  After downloading High Sierra Zone there is only a dmg and no ISO.  I tried converting the dmg with hdiutil but it goes to 8GB and I get "no bootable media" in Virtualbox.  Has anyone been able to do this yet?
