  19. Hello guyz, after a lot of research and uncountable tries with various kernels and kext files, i had successfully installed OSX 10.10.3 on my AMD FX 8350. I would like to help every AMD FX users on how to install 10.10.3 on their System and enable GFX acceleration on nvidia cards. Prerequisites: Download the 10.10.3 Combo update file from the link below. Installation Instructions: Step 1: Install Yosemite Zone 10.10.1 with /amd1 bootflag OR Install 10.10.1 with Unibeast drive using amd kernel Step 2: Download the .rar file from the link below and extract it. Step 3: In the rar file you will get a file as "kern" without quotes. Its the kernel file. Copy/paste the file on the root of you hackintosh drive. Also copy/paste two other kext files named as AppleACPIPlatform.kext and IOPCIFamily.kext on the root of your hackintosh or downloads folder of your hackintosh as we will need these two files later. Also Copy/paste the Web driver which i had also given on the rar file. Step 4: Now its time to install the 10.10.3 combo update file which u had downloaded. Step 5: After installing the update file, dont restart your PC. First, you have to copy/paste the pthread.kext file on System/Library/Extensions. or you can use Kext Wizard to install the Kext. You will get the pthread.kext file on the rar file which u had downloaded. On the rar file, you will get a .zip file named as Extract that zip file and you will get pthread.kext. Step 6: After installing the kext, Fix permissions with Kext wizard and then restart your PC and let the update complete. Step 7: After updating the hackintosh to 10.10.3, its time to boot. So now we need that kernel file which we had pasted on the root directory of the hackintosh drive earlier. So, insert the Yosemite Zone Pendrive as because we need that drive to boot into our hackintosh drive as it has got chameleon installed. Step 8: After inserting the Yosemite Zone Pendrive, boot from the pendrive and select your hackintosh drive from the chameleon boot menu. And now use the following boot flags: /kern -v -x -f Step 9: Patience. It will take some time to boot and after successful boot, it will boot without hardware acceleration. Step 10: Now we need to install the two other kext which we had copied earlier. So fire up Kext Wizard and install those two kext AppleACPIPlatform.kext and IOPCIFamily.kext. After installing the kexts, fix permission using kext wizard. Step 11: install the nvidia web driver which you had copied earlier. After installing the driver, remember to use boot flag nvda_drv=1 on org.chameleon.boot.plist and also copy the kernel file "kern" without quotes to System/Library/kernels and run chameleon Wizard and on org.chameleon.boot. option, tick mark kernel option and on the text bar below type in "kern" without quotes. This will make the OSX boot with kern everytime and you dont need to enter /kern bootflag everytime. Step 12: Reboot your PC and on the Chameleon Boot menu, Choose your hackintosh drive and hit ENTER. ENJOY YOSEMITE 10.10.3 on AMD FX. My Specification: CPU: AMDFX 8350 GPU: NVIDIA GTX 760 RAM: 8GB CORSAIR VENGEANCE MOBO: ASUS M5A97 R2.0
  20. Stuck at installation logo (boot) So recently I decided to try Yosemite Zone on my computer. But just when I tryed to boot into the installation, the screen stucked: What flags should I try? I should say that I have a skylake CPU. I know also, that normally an apple logo is being showed at the installation and I found it strange, that here it's the hackintosh logo.
  21. Hello, nice to meet you all. Today i'll be giving you an interesting news about Mountain Lion 10.8.5 which suits perfectly with ASUS A43SJ, and i would recommend you this laptop as a hackintosh laptop. Why? Well, i used Niresh distro's since Lion 10.7.3 and all of them works flawlessly. Okay, let's get started ! Here's the screenshot of my machine specs : Here's the desktop view, which works flawlessly ( The Battery, Wi-fi, Disk Drive, etc ) and the iCloud & iMessages are also work like shit ( sorry, i'm so happy for it since epic failures and issues on 10.8.2 LOL ) Alright. So, how to reach this paradise of Mountain Lion 10.8.5 with less issues during the first install ( this is my very first install and it succeeded directly ) ?. 1. Download Mountain Lion 10.8.5 ( ISO version ) from Niresh 2. Make sure you download it properly and finished in the same amount of the size ( if it's 4,32 GB, it must be finish in 4,32 GB ). Why? well sometimes error occurs from this tiny mistake 3. Burn it to a disc. ( mine was DVD-RW ) and burn it using IMGBURN by the speed of 8x ( make it solid ) ATTENTION : When i finished burning the iso, it says to close the disc tray and it says ERROR when validating the iso. Don't panicked yourself, just eject it and make sure you have BACKUP THE ENTIRE DATA and DON'T REGRET ANY LOSING FILES 4. Boot up to your BIOS to change your default BIOS from IDE to AHCI mode !. 5. Restart 6. Normal boot and select the Niresh Mountain Lion 10.8.5 disc, then type -v ( verbose mode ) and enter 7. Take some times to load dozens of white texts, make sure you still heard your disc circling sound, if it's stop and you feel stuck for about 10 - 15 minutes by the white texts, RESTART YOUR LAPTOP. But then if you keep finding yourself with the error, RE-BURN YOUR MOUNTAIN LION.iso WITH ANOTHER DVD DISC, but if the problems keep appear, YOU DOWNLOAD THE FILE UN-PROPERLY. So, don't get to panic 'cause i serve you the other reasons and options. 8. Mountain Lion language selection appears ( i choose English ) 9. In the next installation window, you'll see an active taskbar on the top of your screen, choose UTILITIES and click on the DISK UTILITY selections. 10. PARTITION your main or test-drive ( test-drive was meant for them who still concern about the installation success rate on your laptop, if you do this, don't use the main drive !!! ) to some amount of partitions ( i picked 2 PARTITIONS, FOR THE MAIN DRIVE AND DATABASE ) then change the type to MAC OS JOURNALED ( you can even rename your file ). 11. CLICK APPLY and it'll load for some minutes. If it appears to be an error, try the partition again, but if it keeps the same, then restart your laptop to begin from the start. DON'T GET TOO HURRIED, BE PATIENT, THIS IS NOT A THEME, THIS IS A HACKINTOSH 12. close the Disk Utility window and click next to begin the installation 13. You will have to choose the drive for your main installation area. But...WAIT UP! YOU NEED TO CLICK COSTUMIZE IN THE BOTTOM-LEFT CORNER OF THE BOX ! 14. This is when people get crazed because they don't pay attention to what things they should choose. And for this tutorial, this is for Asus A43SJ but if it appears to be success with the other laptops, then it's great. DON'T TICK GRAPHICS ENABLER, SINCE NVIDIA GT520M was FULLY SUPPORTED ! DON'T TICK THE TRIM ENABLER FOR SSD, SINCE OUR DRIVE WASN'T SSD ! For the rest, leave it be ! don't try to change 'em if you don't know how it works ! 15. Installation process begins ! it takes 20 minutes or so. 16. After finishing the installation, reboot your system and CHOOSE THE DRIVE WHICH YOU HAVE RENAME IT AS THE MAIN DRIVE FOR MOUNTAIN LION INSTALLATION. DON'T CHOOSE THE DISK NAME ANYMORE ! 17. Type -x to enter the Safe Boot mode 18. Let the notifications that told you 'repairing, building caches or so' works ! don't restart your system untill they said 'YOUR HACKINTOSH IS FULLY OPTIMIZED'. 19. While waiting them, you can install several kexts that i upload on this link ( and also for some DSDT and SSDT too ! ) KEXT 1 : KEXT 2 : IT'S WORKING FOR 10.8.5 ! Description of the file Kext 1 : Kexts that i put into a single folder, you'll need to install all of them by using KEXT UTILITY. Where can i get the Kext Utility?. It's automatically installed on the Mountain Lion 10.8.5 Kext 2 : Kexts that contains SSDT, DSDT, 'Extra' folder customization and some other kexts that need to be installed such as Wi-Fi, sound, etc. 20. Restart your hackintosh after installing the kexts. WELCOME TO THE PARADISE YOU'VE FINALLY MADE IT ! HAPPY HACKINTOSHING ! P/S : 1. If your Wi-Fi cannot connected even you've installed the kexts. Here's what you have to do ( i got frustated but i tricked them by using multibeast and it works like hell yo ~ ) 1. Download Multibeast from Tonymacx86 Wait, i don't have any internet connection !. Well think smart by using the other laptops or a tablet, then send it to your laptops and install as usual. 2. Choose the network driver and select this one : 3. There will appear a installer window. Just install it as normally 4. Restart 5. Still not working? Good ! Yeah, it won't work ! it won't work !. LOL don't panic, now you go to SLE ( System Library Extensions ) and delete the REALTEK RTL81XXX kexts. Then, you restart your system and GO TO SYSTEM PREFERENCE - NETWORK - TURN ON WIFI - CHOOSE YOUR NETWORK AND INSERT THE PASSWORD IF IT'S NEEDED. Your Wi-Fi issue saved ! What else? nothing, it all works flawlessly. Source : 15 times failures in installing 10.7.3 , 8 times failures in installing 10.8.2 , EPIC SUCCEED in installing 10.8.5 Experience is the best teacher, indeed ! If you wanna ask, just post to my Facebook : Mail me : Hope it works, i'll be testing the Maverick 10.9 pretty soon !
  22. Hello all, I am trying to install Hackintosh Yosemite 10.10.1 Niresh on my Lenovo Z50-70. When installing I get a kernel panic (see picture). At the boot prompt I type: /haswell cpus=1 -x and it boots up fine until I reach the point where there is a kernel panic. My laptop's specs are: Intel Core i7-4510U 8 GB of RAM Nvidia 820m I am a novice when it comes to Hackintosh and therefore don't really know whats going on. Any help to get this to work would be great. Thanks in advance.
  23. Every time I try to install Niresh's Mavericks 10.9.0 is get's to about 6 minutes remaining and it says "Install Failed. OS X could not be installed on your computer. The installer encountered an error that caused the installation to fail. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance. Click Restart to return to your previous version of OS X." How do I prevent this from happening and get it to install properly?

  25. Specs: Intel HD Graphics 4600 Nvidia Geforce GTX 960m Intel i5 4210H 2.90GHZ (Haswell) Hey guys. Ive been trying to install hackintosh on my laptop for a while with no sucess. Yesterday i finally got past the problem with early reboot but faced some other problems with the installer. If i load the Yosemite Zone usb with no boot arguements it stop before loading the installer(stuck in verbose mode). I then tried to load with -f -x, and it worked. I got in to the installer, used disk utility to format a partition then went on to the installer. I chose the partition and customized what i wanted installed. After 30 sec- 1min when it begins to install i got the screen in the picture. I got no idea what to do to fix this, also a fresh noob at hackintosh so i cant really analyze the errors. Help is much appriciated!
