  1. The method I used to install Yosemite on my PC was using TransMac to write the DMG file of Niresh Zone Yosemite to my 8 GB flash drive. If you want to go with the appstore version of El Capitan, then you'll need to have access to a Mac or at least have El Capitan running in a virtual machine like I did using the DevHackers El Capitan ISO on VirtualBox: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CshWGnOMwcc From there you can download the appstore version of El Capitan (10.11.6) and get your USB ready using disk utility and write the contents of the appstore version of El Capitan to your flashdrive with Unibeast which will also include the Clover bootloader if my memory serves me correctly. It may be a bit easier to use Niresh Zone El Capitan if you're coming from Windows. I don't know the process for those on Linux but I suppose the ISO version would suffice in that circumstance alongside the dd command in terminal. (If you're using TransMac on Windows, you'll want to get the DMG version. If you're using VirtualBox or Linux, you'll want to get the ISO version.)
  2. Okay, I'm currently looking through tonymacx86 forum posts about this reboot loop and someone mentioned this which may help even though it was oriented towards an Intel processor (it should still function since you're running with a multicore CPU):
  3. Okay so I may have found the answer from insanelymac regarding the same issue with Yosemite (which seems to be an issue with Clover bootloader and the motherboard being used) Those settings have to be added to your /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist file if they're not already in there. I haven't tested these since Yosemite doesn't seem to have shutdown issues, but some members on that thread were saying that adding one of those settings to their config.plist file helped with their power issue.
  4. 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).
  5. If the Nvidia web drivers for Sierra aren't working for you, then you may want to consider downgrading to El Capitan. Are you wanting to install OS X Sierra to get the latest release for a particular app (such as the latest version of Xcode) or are you just wanting a functioning hackintosh in general?
  6. That's strange since your hackintosh installer shouldn't be recognizing an Nvidia GPU on your laptop when there isn't one. The APU won't be supported of course and QE/CI won't be functioning on APU graphics. Did you get any luck using the safe mode bootflag? (-x)
  7. EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti SC I can confirm that I got the EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti SC running on OS X Yosemite with QE/CI enabled and transparency working perfectly fine. ECC is not supported (which doesn't bother me at all) and it's a decent GPU for budget-oriented hackintosh builds (although you may find better performance if you're willing to spend a tad more) Proof: Amazon's image of the EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti SC: The benefits of this GPU is that it can run with a 350W PSU and without any 6-pin or 8-pin power connectors attached (just powered from the PCIe-x16 slot)
  8. Have you had any luck with previous releases of OS X on those notebooks? Plus did you have an option to disable/enable VT-d in the BIOS? Did you try plugging the flashdrive into another USB port and tried again? Have you ensured that the flashdrive you're using can load the OS X installer? Have you ensured that the notebooks you're using can boot from flashdrives/USB? Did you try using the safe mode bootflag for the OS X installation (-x)? I have found external assistance for the Lenovo L420 which seems to make for an excellent hackintosh judging by the fact that nearly everything works with El Capitan: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/320306-guide-lenovo-thinkpad-l420-with-el-capitan/ I found an El Capitan guide for the Dell Latitude E6410 but I suppose the guide can be used to get you into OS X Sierra without many issues (I hope): http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/308765-guide-dell-latitude-e6410-nvidia-el-capitan-clover-eng/
  9. Armado I believe I have found a possible solution for your particular motherboard and Sierra installation: https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/4sil5p/audio_mechanic_old_patchfix_removal_applealc/
  10. Do you have Nvidia Injection set to True in the config.plist file? If so, then you may want to reinstall the Nvidia Web Drivers and make sure you boot into the system with the following bootflags until you enable the Web Drivers: -v GraphicsEnabler=No nv_disable=1 Since you are forced to reboot after installing the Nvidia default drivers, you'll have to put these bootflags in again so you can enable the web drivers from the control panel Once you've enabled the web drivers and are rebooting, you can remove the bootflags and hopefully you'll get a working display. (As long as you didn't set the BIOS to IGPU only and as long as your monitor and connectors are functioning) Are you still able to log in or does your system lock up at the login screen? That OEM GPU is hopeless unfortunately, I have had success with the EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti and my hackintosh installation without any performance problems. (It can run games, do 4K video editing in Final Cut Pro even though it can't export H.264 past 1080p unfortunately (that's just software limitations from Apple)) The good news is that you can pick up the same GPU for less than $100 but that's just my recommendation.
  11. Well you haven't mentioned using any bootflags so may I recommend some for you to try? kcsuffic=amd -v -x GraphicsEnabler=No nv_disable=1 The first bootflag should help since you're running with an AMD processor. The second bootflag is simply running the booting in verbose mode. The third bootflag is running in safe mode (which is the only way I've been able to get into the installer with my machines) The fourth and fifth bootflag should help since you may not have native support for your variant of the GTX 970 (just in case) Once you get OS X installed on your machine you should be looking to get ethernet and Nvidia web drivers installed before you can remove the last 4 bootflags (you don't have to remove the verbose mode (-v) bootflag if you don't want to) Which should leave you with this bootflag once you get QE/CI enabled: kcsuffic=amd You can probably add that to your boot.plist file if you get tired of typing in that bootflag whenever you start up the system.
  12. I may have found a possible solution to your problem Léonard: http://www.macbreaker.com/2013/03/radeon-7000-hackintosh.html Essentially this will be the process for your machine: Set your BIOS to default to your integrated graphics (IGPU) Plug your monitor into the Radeon HD 7770 Use the following bootflags: -v GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x2000 Then you might have functioning QE/CI, otherwise you'll either want to pick up a known functioning Nvidia GPU for OS X Sierra or resort to downgrading the version of OS X to a known functioning version. (I think 10.8.3 is the minimum supported version for the HD 7770 (Mountain Lion) see this post for specific variants of the Radeon HD 7000 series cards that are known to work: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/list-of-confirmed-radeon-hd-7xxx-series-10-8-3.92952/ )
  13. Okay, I want to know if you can install the appropriate Nvidia Web Drivers for your version of Sierra (which can be found from this list: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/312525-nvidia-web-driver-updates-for-macos-sierra-update-04192017/ ) If you can, then that should fix the graphical bugs, QE/CI, and the video memory issue. I want you to run with these bootflags for when you're installing the Nvidia Web Drivers: -v GraphicsEnabler=No nv_disable=1 Once you have installed the appropriate Nvidia drivers and selected "Web Drivers" (which should require you to restart your system at least twice; once after the installation of the Nvidia OS X Default drivers and once after you select the Nvidia Web Drivers from the control panel). When you restart after selecting the Nvidia Web Drivers, you shouldn't require any bootflags (but I'd still recommend the verbose mode (-v) bootflag to see where your system may be hanging on boot if it does boot a bit too slow)
  14. 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: 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)
  15. 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.
