  1. I have Yosemite Zone somewhat installed. There was some graphics problem, so I had to boot into single user mode and do the grafix backup all command. After that, I installed the AMD9000Controller, AMDFramebuffer, and AMDSupport kexts through Kext Wizard. I rebuilt the kext cache and rebooted. I was able to boot into OS X, however, there's still some graphic issue. About this Mac recognizes my graphics card as AMD R9 xxx 4096 MB. I get 1920x1080 resolution, but when I move some windows around, there's obvious jerking and glitching and the dock is not transparent as it would be on a real Mac. I've already got my Ethernet and audio fixed, but I just need graphics to work properly. What else should I do? I'm lost at this point now. *Edit 1* I installed the AMDRadeonVADriver.bundle file and it seemed to help a little. The animations are still laggy, but not as much as before. There's still some jerking/distortioning when I move a window across the screen, but it isn't as noticeable as it used to be. However, there's still some lag going on.

  2. So after many hours of trying various combinations, I managed to install OS X 10.10.1 using the Yosemite Zone distro. I have Windows 7 on one SSD and OS X on another HDD. Almost everything works, I just had to tweak the Audio a bit though VoodoHDA in System Preferences and had to change the org.chameleon.Boot.plist to include the "msibase=0x90" boot argument under Kernel Flags. It mainly works, but there are still some problems that I can't figure out how to fix. 1. Some programs will crash. If I open DVD Player, I get a "{Name of App}" quit unexpectedly." message. Not all programs do this. I tried Chrome and it works fine. I tried both Bit torrent and uTorrent and the installer opens and installs the program, but once I try to open it, I get the same message. Steam, Office 2011, and Adobe Flash do the same thing. Apps from the Appstore work fine though... 2. I can't access my iCloud account, nor Messages. Messages tells me that an error occurred during activation, although once it actually signed in. iCloud under System Preferences tells me I can't sign in because there was a problem verifying the identity of my "Mac". However, the App store works fine. 3. One of, my keyboards doesn't work well. I have two keyboards. One is a GSkiller Sharkoon, I'm not sure what model. Whenever I press a letter, I get a completely different one. If I press "A", OS X thinks that it is an "H". I have an old Apple Keyboard that does work fine however. This is a really annoying problem because I prefer using my GSkiller kb because it's for gaming on Windows. I tried using the Keyboard Setup Assistant, and it can't recognize my kb. 4. When I put the computer to sleep and wake it up, neither keyboard nor mouse works. The screen comes up, but I can't type or move the mouse cursor. I even tried replugging them and that doesn't work. I'm using the Chameleon Boot loader v 5.0.132 Enoch r2700 according to Chameleon Wizard. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

  3. Hello everyone. I have a custom built computer that I would like to dual boot into Windows 7 Ultimate and Mac OS X 10.8.5 (and then update to latest Yosemite). This is my hardware: 1. AMD FX 8350 2. Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 Rev.4 Mobo 3. 8GB Patriot Viper RAM 4. EVGA GeForce GTX 660 3Gb GPU 5. Samsung SSD 120Gb 6. Seagate HDD 2Tb 7. Seagate HDD 160Gb 8. DVD Drive What I want to do: 1. Install Windows 7 Ultimate on the SSD 2. Install OS X Mountain Lion (and then update to Yosemite) on the 160Gb HDD 3. Use the 2Tb HDD as storage for programs,music, documents,etc..., and have it accessible to both OSs I am using the Niresh 10.8.5 Distro DVD. I used the DVD to boot the installer by using "amdfx" at the boot prompt, and it booted to the Installer after about 10 minutes. I formated my 160Gb HDD, customized my installation, and installed OS X on it. After about 30 minutes (The installer time isn't accurate; it stayed on less than one minute reamaing for about 5 minutes), the Install finished. I rebooted my computer and chose to boot from the OS X HDD. It took me to the Apple Screen w/ the spining circle for about a minute, then it went to a gray screen. I restarted the computer, the same thing happened. I looked online, and found this site: I tried it's first suggestion, and it worked. I was able to boot into the OS X User Setup Screen. I created my user account and all of that, and then I was taken to the desktop. However, after I restarted my computer to go install Windows 7, I booted into OS X just to be sure, and it didn't work. I get the grey Apple screen w/ the circle spinning clock wise, and then after about a minute, the hard drive stops being read from. I tried the suggestion again, but that didn't work. Now my questions are: 1. How can successfuly install OS X Moutain Lion? 2. Succesfuly dual boot Windows and Mountain Lion? I don't mind restarting the whole installation process; I just want it to work well. I'm very good with computers, it's just that this whole Hackintosh thing is kind of complex. I sincerely do appreciate your help! Thanks! ----------------------------*Edit 1*------------------------------------------ After 2 ******* days, I managed to get OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.5 somewhat installed. I used Multibeast, the Yosemite edition. I installed some kexts and some other customizations. However, there are still some problems that I need help on. 1. The graphics are very laggy. When I open the Notification center, it turns somewhat red, and flashes. Going on Safari, esp. websites w/ animations is painfully slow. I suspect this is a driver issue. I had to use the "grafix backup all" command after installing OS X and then booting into SIngle User Mode "-s" 2. The USB ports don't work. They provide power, I verified this because my keyboard has an LED light that is on all of the time, and my flash drive's LED light is on. I can't use any of my 16 USB ports. I suspect this has to do with Multibeast because this has never happend before. If any one can help, I really would appreciate it.
  4. Answer to your first question: yes I did read a guide: which was Guide 2 of this link: I followed practically all that I could up to step 4. I do have an old iMac G4, but I wouldn't want to try to restore the .dmg file on it because it has USB 1.1 ports which are extremely slow, unless I absolutely have to. Answer to your second question: What I changed in the UEFI was what was mentioned in the first link I gave. The person who wrote the guide had an Intel CPU, and a Gigabyte motherboard, so some options weren't there. Answer to your third question: I tried the boot arguments you told me, but they didn't work either. It would load some files, and then restart. I also tried them with -amdfx -v, etc.. and it kept restarting.
  5. Ok thanks. I'm at school at right now, so I'll check back later to see what I can try. Thanks anyways.
  6. I have: 1. AMD FX 8350 CPU at stock speed CPU 2. Gigabyte GA990FXA-UD3 Revision 4 motherboard with the F3i Beta UEFI/BIOS update 3. EVGA GeForce GTX 660 3Gb Graphics Card (I'm using the DVI-D Connector) 4. 1 2TB Seagate HDD and 1 160WD HDD (I want to install OS X on this one) I have the OS X Yosemite Zone distro on my 8Gb flash drive. My computer can boot to the screen where I'm asked to type in boot flags. Since I have an AMD FX CPU, I type -amdfx -v However, after pressing "return", it starts loading a BUNCH of files, but then it restarts my computer. I've tried -f -v, etc.. but none actually boot the system. I remember, when this used to be Niresh, I installed a Niresh Distro, that mostly worked, but I don't remember which one it was. Any help?
