  1. So, I'm sure many of you recieved the news of the public release of Yosemite Beta. This is the newest version up to date for Yosemite and is no longer in developer preview anymore. Is there anyway to make this bootable in a USB?
  2. Updating After Kernel Backup (10.9.0 - 10.9.4)

    Sorry! Completely forgot to post my hardware specs. Updated post.
  3. So I've got my Hackintosh up and running for a few days now. Only problem I noticed is when I close images opened the default Mac OS X image viewer, it takes 2 minutes for it to officially close. I'm not sure why this is. So the main question I have is when I update from 10.9.0 to 10.9.4 through the official app store update, it goes into an infinite loop of reboots. In other words, it boots to apple logo screen then immediately turns black and reboots and the cycle will start again. I've tried booting with many options such as -f -v -x, or trying to use -s boot-flag to backup grafix, and xpcm-free (I have no idea what this does but it did grant me the wish of installing mavericks onto my computer). Neither of them had any affect. After doing research, it seems like I need to backup my kernel of the above situations will occur. Using OSX86 tools, I've successfully backed up my kernel named "mach_kernel" or something the like onto my main SSD and onto a USB. Though, what to do with the backed up kernel is beyond my knowledge. So I just went ahead and tried to install 10.9.4 again with the backed up kernel, and the results were not satisfying. The same thing happened the first time I tried installing the update. I should also note that my Hackintosh has no dual boot to windows, it's just Niresh Mavericks inside. So here I am after many attempts, asking the people who know what they're doing with Hackintosh for advice and solutions. Thank you for reading. Motherboard: ASRock Z87 Pro4 Graphics: EVGA Nvidia GTX 770 CPU: Intel Core i5 4670k Storage: SSD Samsung 250 GB Secondary Storage: WD 1 TB 7200 RPM That's about all the hardware that matters.
  4. Custom Built Desktop Hackintosh Drivers

    Oh sorry, I'm running OS X Mavericks from Niresh, and I'm using ALC892 since that's the driver listed on my motherboard. BUT! I don't know how, I once again installed ALC892 using Multibeast and even downloaded another kext from insanelymac which is also 892. Both didn't work upon restart, and I also downloaded voodooHDA 2.8.4, restarted, and still didn't work. So I gave up that night and went to sleep, however, upon opening my computer sound magically starts working with reasons I don't know what. I'm also planning to install OS X Yosemite, do you think it's a good idea? Thanks for replying to my thread, thank you for reading!
  5. Hi, I'm happy to say that I have a successfully installed Mac OS X Mavericks on my custom PC. However, it's just that, as of now everything is very slow and very laggy. It's like it has no graphics card installed at all or maybe even worse. Opening Safari's new tab will make the whole window blink infinitely which makes it lag really hard. Wondering if this is an driver issue? Where should I start to download all the drivers? UPDATE 1: I've located a Nvidia Icon and I face palmed myself for not locating that earlier. It gave me an option between the Apple Graphics Card or my Nvidia Graphics card, and now my FPS is fine and smooth. The only problem now is the sounds, if I can get that working then I'm good to go (hopefully). My sound has not been working at all. UPDATE 2: I've just realized that my sound was working after all, but not "working" as I would like it to. It's working, but that's an overstatement, it's producing very, very, very, very! low sound output. To the point where I can barely hear it at max volume, when I say barely I mean to the point where I mistook the sound to not work at all. Is there a fix for this really low sound bug? My specs are: CPU: Intel Core i5 4670K GPU: EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 Mobo: AsRock Z87 Pro4 Ram: 2x4 GB Sticks (8 GB of ram) Primary Storage: SSD Samsung 250 GB Secondary Storage: WD 1TB 7200 RPM Thanks for reading!
  6. Sorry for triple posting. I'm happy to say that I'm replying to this thread using my successfully installed and booted Hackintosh, but I've got no idea where to start to find the drivers. Any one can share their knowledge with me?
  7. After all this time trying to get a glimpse at the installation screen for the past few years I've finally been able to get through it. Thank you so much, now another problem occurs. When installer asks me to choose a disk to install Mavericks to, both disks that show claims to "not have enough space". Is there something that I missed? EDIT: NVM, after a little bit of searching the net, I've found a solution using disk utilities. Again thank you so much. Now I just have to hope it boots fine after installation as well as drivers.
  8. Thanks for the reply, I'll try that and let you know the results!
  9. Hi, this is my last resort to ask everyone to kindly help me. I successfully created a USB bootable with Niresh Movericks inside, and all I've been getting are black screens after logo and then it restarts itself. I've tried many boot flags such as -f -v -x GraphicsEnabler=No PCIRootUID=0,1,2,3,4,5 ncpi=0x3000 but still the same, except it doesn't go into apple logo screen and just restarts. My specs are: CPU: Intel Core i5 4670K GPU: EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 Mobo: AsRock Z87 Pro4 Ram: 2x4 GB Sticks (8 GB of ram) Primary Storage: SSD Samsung 128 GB Secondary Storage: WD 1TB 7200 RPM Please let me know if you need any other information, I've also tried using myHack and the same results applied. Thank you for reading.
