  1. Probably the kernel...check a guide i wrote a few days ago, i gave a step by step on how i did it on my amd machine, i made a backup of my own kernel booted into it with the bootflag and then replaced the new one with my old one......before i tried with a random kernel online and it never worked. So try replacing it with your original one
  2. How to update on AMD

    Hey guys after about two weeks of no success, I was finally able to update my AMD hackintosh to 10.9.4 I kept getting into the restart loop, or a kernel panic that wouldn't allow me to boot. So i just want to shar with you guys the steps i took in order to succeed, and hopefully it can help others in my same situation. This tutorial is assuming you have your hackintosh at 10.9.1 fully functional Things you'll need: 1. Niresh Installer USB 2. Another USB can be and size 3. A USB with the utilities and working graphics kext (optional) 4. A lot of dam patience Procedure: Step 1: Use the command or Desktop Utillity to show all hidden files Step 2: Make a backup of your mach_kernel and kext folders with the commands below using terminal: sudo -s [enter password] cp -r /System/Library/Extensions /System/Library/Extensions.backup cp -r /mach_kernel /mach_kernel.backup Step 3. Right click and copy your working mach_kernel and paste it on your desktop or USB so that you can rename it to mach_kernel.bak Once done you can place the renamed kernel back into your root Step 4: Follow steps 1-6 this guide: and make a USB with the System.kext, AppleMatch.kext, Sandbox.kext (this is where you use the 1gb usb) Step 5: install your combo update Step 6. Once it restarts boot into your niresh USB and finish the second part of the guide provided in step 4 Step 7: once you restart use the following boot flags: mach_kernel.bak -x -v (you also want to add graphicsenabler=no depending on your card) Step 8: Once you boot in restore the mach_kernel and kexts you backed up in step 2 with the commands below using terminal: sudo -s [enter password] cp -r /System/Library/Extensions.backup /System/Library/Extensions cp -r /mach_kernel.backup /mach_kernel Please share your success stories and build if you would like.
