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:

Quote

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!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • 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 com.apple.audio.DriverHelper[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named com.apple.bluetoothaudiod." 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)
    • 980m+intel 530, 6820hk 512ssd+120ssd+1TB im trying to install macOsierra, and i tried a lot of combinations of arguments and configuration, nothing seems to work, i got the same problem every time ofter i start the installation! Is saying: System uptime in  nanoseconds: some random numbers.
    • Hello guys!


      Today I tried to install macOS High Sierra from a bootable usb, but my pc froze during the booting process.
      I need help. Can you help me?

      Here I attached a demo with the problem.
