acer aspire e5-523 laptop my first hackintosh!

Hi, i'm trying to install macos-sierra-zone on my Acer Aspire e5-523 laptop.

But i'm having trouble installing it, i get the apple logo and the loading bar come up within one second my laptop reboots.

My laptop specs are:

AMD A9 7th Gen dual core  Processor running at 2.9Ghz with turbo boost up to 3.5Ghz

AMD Radeon R5 Graphics

8gb of ddr4 ram

1TB hard drive

This is my first hackintosh and i'm new to this, in the UEFI menu i selct options and where it says boot i take out what it says next to it and put kcsuffix=amd

I'm not sure if i'm doing this right but doing that get the apple logo and progress bar up.

What should i do?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! 

Thanks, for reading,

Tom.

Give these bootflags a try Tom:

kcsuffix=amd -v -x GraphicsEnabler=No

The bootflags contain a verbose mode, safe mode, and doesn't bother trying to enable QE/CI since that may not be available for your APU graphics solution.

You will not be able to get transparency working on the APU graphics solution and you'll only be able to get the native resolution of your monitor through this bootflag:

"Graphics Mode"="1366x768x32@60"

Aside from that you'll be experiencing some instabilities (kernel panics here-and-there depending on the workload and what you open) and you may not be able to get WiFi working on your laptop (or ethernet if you even have that option).

You could potentially get those things working if there are kexts for them, but I can guarantee that QE/CI won't be working because my first hackintosh attempt was Niresh Zone Yosemite on an AMD A10-6700 inside an old ASUS M11BB Essentio desktop with APU graphics (that was about 2013/2014).

I would recommend getting a laptop with supported Intel HD graphics if you're wanting a hackintosh on-the-go with QE/CI capabilities (such as transparency and graphics acceleration with less graphical glitches)

Since you're going to do what I did (try to get a working OS X installation on an AMD A-Series APU) and you have my respect and empathy for that (I know how much of a pain it was and how disappointing it was at the end when realizing what all was feasible on that setup) then the least I can do is help you get to the installation screen.

    • 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)
