Core 2 Duo e7400 OC to 3.47, and an AMD R7 260X, OSX POSSIBLE?!?!?

Question

Core 2 Duo e7400 OC to 3.47, and an AMD R7 260X, OSX POSSIBLE?!?!?

My local library just upgraded all of their computers, i was fortunate enough to get a few, all have an unlocked board to overclock and they have 2 GB of ram. i have a few 260x cards lying around and they work in them. Is it possible to install on this pc? oh yea, last time i tried it didnt even show the clover boot loader. just gives a flashing line.

 

Motherboard: MSI 7529 Ver 1.6

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 3.47 Ghz

RAM: 2GB (unknown brand)

HDD: 320 GB WD Blue

 

(if you need any more info i would be happy to supply it)

I think you'll be hard pressed to overclock this hackintosh build (at least without some instabilities especially when running CPU demanding tasks such as gaming and video rendering)

Plus some research on the AMD Radeon R7 260X from 2015 brought this possible solution:

I'm having R7 260x, but along with i5 650, and booting with Clover is smoothly. I'm using FakeID as following (0x66401002 or 0x665C1002):


<dict>
	<key>FakeID</key>
	<dict>
		<key>ATI</key>
		<string>0x66401002</string>
	</dict>
</dict>
...
<key>Graphics</key>
<dict>
	<key>FBName</key>
	<string>Futomaki</string>
	<key>Inject</key>
	<dict>
		<key>ATI</key>
		<true/>
		<key>Intel</key>
		<false/>
		<key>NVidia</key>
		<false/>
	</dict>
	<key>InjectEDID</key>
	<true/>
	<key>LoadVBios</key>
	<true/>
	<key>VRAM</key>
	<integer>2048</integer>
	<key>VideoPorts</key>
	<integer>4</integer>
</dict>

Hope it can help.

Of course this was on an older version of OS X and it may not apply to Sierra (but it would be worth a shot if you get that far)

Plus you need to lookup BIOS settings for your motherboard for hackintosh use (such as disabling VT-D)

Then you have to consider the method you used to write the Sierra DMG image to your flashdrive. If you're running through Windows, then you can use TransMac which I had uploaded earlier today for convenience sake: https://mega.nz/#!j0xCnTiC!iKY-EMkWlH4NxTlBDn-eyNDXlQUwt0zM3esupDJgPRY

If you do have access to a mac or another hackintosh (such as an OS X installation on VirtualBox) then you may want to go with the Disk Utility restore method which should work just fine from what I've experienced.

When you do get to the bootflags part you may want to give these bootflags a try:

-v -x GraphicsEnabler=No

That way you'll be running the installer in safe mode which is the only way I've been able to install OS X on any of my machines. Once you have gotten everything installed, then you can remove the -x bootflag and see if that allows you to boot without a kernel panic (or a system uptime in nanoseconds error)

I'm so sorry, I'm still new to this. Where do i put the text in the quote at the top? but, i did remove the overclock and it got into the Niresh boot loader and was able to get to [ ACPI PATCHER ] then it restarted. i used "-v -x GraphicsEnabler=No" and also tried without safe mode it made it to the same place just faster. Unfortunately they do not support turning Virtualization tech on. so its always off.

To inject ATI graphics in your hackintosh installation you will need to hunt down your Clover bootloader config.plist which should be located in the /EFI/CLOVER directory.

Then you'll have to insert the code (without the ... of course) into your boot.plist file if they're not already in there.

Reboot the system when you saved the changes and hopefully it will boot with QE/CI enabled ( I couldn't find out anything on ATI/AMD drivers for OS X Sierra unlike Nvidia so I assume that OS X Sierra should have ATI/AMD support out-of-the-box these days).

    • 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
    • I built a Hackintosh on a GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P in 2010, and upgraded it to Sierra about 4 months ago. It's been working great until a few days ago.  The clock now is losing time, while the computer is on and running. I've been working on the computer all morning, and have had to bump it forward to the current time it 3-4x. Right now it says 9:40am, but it's really 9:47am.  I have "Set time and date automatically" set in settings and "Apple Americas/U.S. (time.apple.com.)" selected on the drop down. Deselecting it, and selecting it again, brings the clock back to the current time.  Is this a hardware issue or a software issue? Do I have to replace the CR2032 on the motherboard? If so - why? The computer is on, and running, why would it need that battery to maintain the time?       
    • i am trying to install yosemite on a asus m2n sli deluxe chipset NVIDIA amd Athlon 64 X2 5600+ ATI Radeon HD 4800   and still i am stuck at pci configuration begin or console error. i tried several kernels and graphic cards with no results please help with these boot flags ive tried -v -x ncpi=0x3000 nv_disable=1 -v -x ncpi=0x3000 nv_disable=1 GraphicsEnabler=No
