  2. OS X on Acer 532h Atom

    OS X on Acer 532h Atom I have a Acer Aspire One 532h, it has a Aton n450 processor, I've been trying to install OS X on it for the past week and I've faced many issues so far. My install has to be via USB, and I don't have a Mac or hackintosh right now. Using Niresh Mountain Lion 10.8.5 DMG file I can easily put the install on a USB drive, however it has Clover, no boot flag or config makes it boot. The laptop just reboots immediately after I hit enter. I tried downloading the 10.8.2 iso, but i'ts a ISO and the guide to put it on USB with Windows doesn't work, so I can't move on. I also want to know if Niresh's 10.8.5 ISO contains a different bootloader from the DMG and the kernel support for atom processors.
  3. [Guide] How to dual-boot Windows with OSX on a HP Pavilion DM4-1250ca (also preserves Windows data) This may work for other earlier DM4 laptops that have Arrandale 1st generation i3/i5/i7 CPUs too, that have graphical glitches upon entering the OSX installer. Working: * QE/CI (accelerated) Graphics * Sound * Microphone * USB ports * Ethernet * VGA * DVD Drive * Internal temperature monitors Not working: * Battery display * HDMI * SD card port Might work: * Mini PCI-E Wi-fi card (lost mine) Hardware requirements: * 8 GB USB Thumb drive or higher for the OSX Distro * 1 GB USB Thumb drive for MultiBeast * USB Mouse (only for part of setup) * USB Keyboard (same) * Ethernet connection Software requirements: Windows: * TransMac * ParagonHFS * MacPwn-generated distro of El Capitan * Files to make the distro MBR-installable (link in guide) * Working config.plist (link in guide) Mac: * Kext Wizard * Multibeast * Intel HD Graphics QE/CI drivers (link in guide) * Laptop keyboard / touchpad drivers (link in guide) * VoodooHDA 2.8.8 Now for the guide. 1. Go to the BIOS Advanced menu by pressing F10 and A at the same time repeatedly when you see the HP logo. The timing window for this is pretty small. From there, go to Advanced > Chipset Configuration, and disable VT-d. 2. In Windows, make sure there is enough free room to install OSX (at least 40GB.) 3. Get into an admin mode command prompt (for Win 10, right click the window icon and choose Command Prompt (Admin). 4. Type diskpart, then list disk, and then "select disk #", where 0 is the hard drive you want to install OSX on. 5. Type "list partition", and take note of the number. Then, type "create partition primary size=x id=af", where "size=x" is the size in megabytes you want your drive to be. "id=af" sets the partition to HFS+, so the OSX installer can see it, and so it won't need the whole drive to install OSX. 6. Type "select partition #", where # is one more than the number you noted, type "active", then "exit". 7. Type diskmgmt.msc, right-click the partition you made and choose "Change Drive Letter and Paths". Give it a drive letter for later. 8. Download the latest MultiBeast on a spare thumb drive. 9. Get a MacPwn-generated distro of El Capitan, like one named "El Pwn Version.dmg" 10. Burn it to a thumbdrive with TransMac, by right-clicking the thumb drive and choosing "Restore with Disk Image". 11. Once the image is burned, then load the thumb drive up in TransMac, go to System/Library/Extensions/ and rename AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext to AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.old (right click to rename.) This allows the installer to be visible without graphical glitches. 12. You'll have to replace the thumb drive's /EFI/Clover/config.plist with the one attached . 13. Google "El Capitan MBR Patch" and follow the first link to make OSX MBR bootable (involves replacing two files on the drive.) 14. Boot to the distro with boot argument cpus=1 -v, then plug in the mouse and keyboard. You should be able to install the OS. 15. Keep the USB drive in, and don't load the distro you have just installed, since as soon as you get to the desktop, the screen will glitch out. Time to boot back to Windows and rename some files with ParagonHFS to fix that. 16. Once you're in Windows, install ParagonHFS (TransMac doesn't work for this, file permission issues) and open your OSX partition (not your thumb drive partition), go to System/Library/Extensions/, delete AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext and AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext and you should be able to boot properly to OSX, from the thumb drive's bootloader. 17. During the OSX setup, at the "How Do You Connect?" screen, choose "My computer does not connect to the Internet", we'll set up access later. 18. In the OSX desktop, run MultiBeast go to Drivers > Network, and choose RealtekRTL8111 v2.0.0, Misc > FakeSMC v6.18, FakeSMC Plugins, FakeSMC HWMonitor, NullCPUPowerManagement, and Bootloaders > Clover Legacy bootloader, then choose Build. This will enable ethernet, some internal temperature monitors, and install the Clover bootloader. Now, before you reboot, change your OSX drive's /EFI/Clover/config.plist with my working one attached, and copy the kexts from your installer thumb drive's /EFI/Clover/kexts/Other/ folder into your OSX drive's empty /EFI/Clover/kexts/Other/folder. 19. Download Kext Wizard and the kext for your laptop keyboard/touchpad at (google OSX Voodoo PS2 Controller, first hit). Be sure to follow the directions on this page. May want to copy org.rehabman.voodoo.driver.Daemon.plist and VoodooPS2Daemon to your desktop, then type "cd Desktop" in Terminal, for the command that copies them to the right places. Also may want to enable tap-click from Launchpad > System Preferences > Trackpad. 20. Before updating the video drivers, grab the El Capitan 10.11.6 update from the App store, which will require a reboot and cause your OSX desktop to be a glitchy screen again. Boot to Windows, go to the OSX drive's System/Library/Extensions/ folder, and delete AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext, AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext, AppleIntelHDGraphicsGA.plugin, AppleIntelHDGraphicsGLDriver.bundle, and AppleIntelHDGraphicsVADriver.bundle, then boot back to OSX. 21. The proper, QE/CI-enabled video drivers can be found at (Google "1st generation intel hd graphics qe/ci", first hit). First, do a command-f search for Natit.zip, then grab that, then command-f search for "Watch", to be near the blue banner that reads "Enable Quartz Extreme with Core Image (QE/CI)". Scroll down a little further to "Intel HD Graphics QE/CI Download" link. Click through, download and open the 10.11.6 file. 22. Once open, move AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext, AppleIntelHDGraphicsGA.plugin, AppleIntelHDGraphicsGLDriver.bundle and AppleIntelHDGraphicsVADriver.bundle to the desktop. Then, in the open Intel HD Graphics QECI 10.11.6 folder, go to Select Framebuffer > SingleLink > Normal > LCD+VGA > LCD+VGA LW1, then move AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext to the desktop. Now open Natit.zip and put Natit.kext on the desktop. Install the six files with Kext Wizard. 23. You may want to turn off Display sleep in System Preferences > Energy Saver, since sleep is broken, the display turns on without a backlight. 24. For audio, install VoodooHDA 2.8.8. I couldn't install it through MultiBeast so I downloaded it separately, works fine. You should have a smooth video experience now. The setup can handle 60 FPS Youtube videos nicely, but detailed 3d graphics are a bit much for its 288 MB of VRAM. Sorry about the lack of links, there's a spam filter. config.plist

I did my USB boot drive accordig to the OS X El Capitan 10.11 UniBeast 6 Clover Installation Guide . So I made the Boot USB and then I went to the Bios of my Laptop and there is not such "Optimised defaults" so I loaded the default Bios values and saved them. Then I changed the boot order with F12 to boot from the USB stick but nothing happened ... and Windows 7 starts loading up... Iam lost because no matter which method I follow when i try to boot it do not recognize the USB boot drive and runs immediately to windows. Help here what I need to do...

  6. Hello, After failing a few hours to create a iso image, involving i. a. a tool to create a iso image and terminal/command-line ways to create a iso out of the downloaded ".app" installation file of the OS El Capitan, I've created a bootable USB-Stick (MacBook Pro - El Cpt.). It appears that Windows does not recognize the file-system on the used USB-Stick, so I used HFSExplorer to extract the files. What can I do with these files to be able to install the OS on VirtualBox ? Or... is there any easier way to install the OS on VirtualBox ? Regards
  7. Anyone willing to help a newbie out? I'm trying to set up a VirtualBox Guest of Mavericks or El Capitan on a Windows Host. I have the InstallESD.dmg files from two separate Macs that I use at work, one Mavericks, one El Capitan. Both are verified bootable, checked with DiskMaker X and booting to the USB Drive. For some reason, I can't just boot from them in a VM like I could Lion (10.7). I'm not sure what I need, but it sounds like a bootloader is necessary, as I keep meeting a EFI screen that won't do anything but tell me the command I just entered was not recognized. I have no clue where to find one, which one is best, or how to use one. Just wondering if anyone can help me with that. A step by step guide would be fantastic. One of my main concerns was my hardware. However, my processor, the E3-1230 V3, is a Haswell-based server processor which, in theory, has the same architecture as a Haswell i7 with no integrated graphics. tonymacx86 lists the i7-4770, 4790, and both K versions as compatible with Hackintosh's, which should mean good new for me. The MSI Z97 Gaming 5 is also on that list, and I have the Z97S SLI Krait Edition. Very similar boards. The GTX 750 Ti is also on the list, which leads me to believe that hardware shouldn't be too much of an issue. Thanks for any help with this. I've been wanting to play with OS X at home for awhile now. Finally having the courage to try and get this done. *EDIT* I forgot to list my specs list... Oops.

  8. Alright, here's my dilemma. I'm trying to boot up Niresh Mavericks on an AMD64 desktop (I'm not using Yosemite because it takes 5 minutes to load all the HFS+ files on that one). I've gotten stopped by the infamous "PCI Configuration Begin" hang, and I can't fix it; I've tried pretty much every combination of PCIRootUID=0/1, npci=0x2000/0x3000, pci=no, GraphicsEnabler=Yes, dart=0, -x, and so on with both /amd and /amd64 (this is not an FX system); no luck on any try. I finally found some custom kexts somebody made that are supposed to be able to bypass this. I know they go in the Extra\Extensions folder. But here's where things get tricky; The computer's motherboard doesn't support booting from a USB drive, so I have it burned to a DVDR-DL that I'm booting from; I've got like 50 of these laying around, so I've no worries about burning more. Of course, this means I'm using the ISO file, which can't be edited; only extracted, edited, and then put back together. Problem is, I can't for the life of me get it put back together properly. I'm using PowerISO, although I do also have IMGBurn and Image Master at my disposal. What I've been doing is taking the ISO, backing up the boot information, extracting it, manually extracting the [BOOT] folder with 7zip, putting it back in, adding the kexts, and then putting them all back into PowerISO, making it bootable, and using the boot information from the official ISO. It does create a valid ISO file, but it doesn't actually boot; it just hangs on the boot screen (I've been using VirtualBox to test it, where the normal ISO works fine). To make matters worse, I can't browse the filesystem contents of the disc on my Windows computer, so I can't just edit it directly that way (haven't tried on Linux yet, but I'd assume it's no different). I do have a Mac Mini available, but it has no disc drive, and I don't have any external disc drives to hook up to it. I need some way to add custom kexts to the Niresh ISO file, and still be able to burn it to a disc and have it work.

    Will trans Mac read my hackintosh hard drive so I can insert kexts into the extra file
  10. Right so after quite some time and a few installs I got my OSX build working (yay) however I have done a few installs now for varies reasons and everytime the System Reserved Partition for Windows (Which you use to boot) keep disappearing and it's really rather annoying. Has anyone else found this problem? And for anyone doing a fresh install maybe install OSX first if you can and if not then make sure you do a back up first (I have a few HD's so luckily I could install windows elsewhere and then back everything up but it's still a pain)
  11. Will it work?

    Hi guys, I'm new to the forum. I registered because I'm fed up with Windows and want to change it to OS X. The only problem I have is my fear of bricking my notebook, because after all I still need to work on something. I hope that there is somebody here who could look at my specs and tell me if I should attempt installing Yosemite on my machine. So what I have is an HP notebook with: Intel HD Graphics 4400Intel Core i3-4005U CPU @ 1,7GHz4 GB 1600 MHz DDR3L SDRAM500 GB 5400 rpm SATA Well it's this notebook - http://store.hp.com/UKStore/Merch/Product.aspx?id=J4T67EA&opt=ABU&sel=NTB I don't really know what else to post so I'd be really happy if anyone told me what informations I need to add
  12. Hi all, So near to a breakthrough but I need some help... AMD FX 6300 AMD Radeon R7 260x Gigabyte GA-970-UD3P Existing Windows 7 on local HD Using Yosemite 10.10.1 distro via a USB key, it seemed to install successfully to a seperate HDD but after restarting it just boots into Windows, and I can see in the UEFI/BIOS that boot priority has been altered so that my Yosemite HD is at the top. I have booted into the USB and tried to select the Yosemite HD, and this looks right but when I enter the same bootflags as before: amd64 -v npci=0x3000 ...it says can't find systemlibrarykernelsamd64 and using HFSExplorer, I can see it's there! amd64 is there! If I can find it, why can't it?! I did have the same error when trying to install, BUT I moved the 'amd64' file from the root of the USB and into systemlibrarykernels because that's where it was looking for it. Is that normal? I haven't found anyone else who had to do that but it worked for the install, annoying now it doesn't work to boot. Can anyone please help? Many thanks! Tom
  13. How to boot windows again

    I have been trying to install Yosemite on a hardrive partition on my dell Inspiron laptop. I installed it however when trying to boot I get an error: boot0ss: error. I now just want to get back to windows however I have no idea how to select which hd partition it boots from. I can only choose to boot from hd or usb. I have seen some solutions which include changing settings in the os but since I have no running os I can't do that. How do I boot windows again?

  17. Hi, I have Yosemite and Win 8 on dual boot. Yosemite works well... and I have not booted to Win 8 in last 3 months or so. I have everything I need on OS X, so I would like to take in usage that windows reserved disk space. What is right way to do this? In Disk Utility I can format disks, but I assume I need to modify boot also so I can get faster boot to Yosemite / remove dual boot. I have "standard" Yosemite Zone installation so I have not tweaked etc boot at the moment. Also now on boot it seems to wait... maybe user input if you want to boot to windows... dunno... I have not booted to windows since I installed Yosemite with new boot loader How do I remove this... I suppose it is also gone when I get windows from boot options away? BR JLahtela
  18. Hey fellows I'm doing the 10.8.2 installation of Niresh to my 8GB USB. I've followed all the steps and checked the AHCI instead of SATA and such.So I move on to the booting, when i press a button so i get the boot options If i just press enter with no boot "commands", I stuck at the Apple logo screen, no loadin circle or anything just the gray apple, I've waited 15 mins but nothing happens. So if I try booting with the booting command -v I get a black screen after some text that I'll try to show you, the text is very blurry but you might see what it says: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2kzccaqp581odv9/bild.PNG Here's my specc: System: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 CPU: Intel Core i5 4670K 3.4 GHz (Haswell) Graphics: Gigabyte GTX Geforce 660 Other Hardware: Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-B85M-D3H RAM: Corsair 8GB (2x4GB) CL9 1600Mhz VENGEANCE LP Thanks a lot!
  19. BIOS and WIFI on WINDOWS

    Hi, I've installed yosemite on an hp dv6690el (external hdd); all works perfectly on osx, eccept wifi. I noticed that the setup changed my bios... at the first boot on windows (internal hdd) after the setup of yosemite, i had a bad surprise. When the wifi is ON, windows tells me that the wifi is "deactivated"... when i put it OFF, it tells me that the wifi is "disabled" i have solved this problem one time by doing an update of my bios with the official setup. Now, i've tried to log on Osx, shutdown, log on Windows and it gives me the same problem!! i've tried to update again the bios but with no luck.. How to restore my old bios or make the wifi works on windows? Thanks alot
  20. Hi, So I noticed that on the newest Yosemite install guide it looks like Niresh(?) is installing Yosemite to a separate partition. Also, he's selecting the format that he says is most similar to Windows. Does this mean it can be installed on a separate partition and be dual booted with Windows? Thanks, rekrom12

    Dual Boot Clover configuration - Yosemite & Windows 8.1 on two hard drives (Gigabyte GA-Z97M-DH3 & Intel i5 4690 3,5GHz) Disclamer This guide was written only with the purpose to help those who, like me, want strictly to do a trial over the possibility of running OS X Yosemite and Windows 8.1 on a PC hardware configuration. The combination of specific hardware and software installation is merely temporary and exclusively for testing purposes. Moreover, this test is just part of a personal private research project. The procedure required a genuine Machintosh machine. Abstract For complete information about my hardware specific configuration and installation procedure for OS X Yosemite, as well as all the software tools used, please read my previous tutorial - Guide for Hackintosh Yosemite 10.10 installation using Unibeast and Clover (a hard way!). The present guide is an approach to Clover EFI configuration on a PC machine to boot successfully OS X Yosemite, as well as all configuration steps needed to dual boot Yosemite and Windows 8.1. For that purpose I used Clover configurator version 4.19.4.The working method used consisted in editing config.plist Clover configuration file using Clover Configurator software tool. Computer hardware Case: Aerocool Cube Ds White Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97M-DH3 Intel Z97 SK1150 Processor: Intel Haswell i5 4690 3,5GHz Memory: 2 x 4GB Kingston Hyper X Fury DDR3 1600MHz Graphics Card: Sapphire AMD Radeon HD7770 Ethernet: Realtek RTL8111 Audio: Realtek ALC892 Disks: Seagate SSHD 2,5” 500GB + Maxtor HD 1TB Clover configuration for successful booting of OS X Yosemite Clover ACPI Section Clover Boot Section Clover Disable Drivers Section Clover GUI Section In the other Clover Configurator sections, not shown on the pictures, there was no need of changing anything. However, please be aware that this was my case using the specific listed hardware assembling. Each case is a different case. That means the Clover profile configuration for successful booting is specific for each hardware configuration. So, users have to be able to think for themselves to choose the right Clover parameters for their specific hardware assembling. Showing only essential Clover configuration boot entries needed (OS X Yosemite & Windows 8.1) At the beginning I had six boot entries in my Clover boot menu, but I just needed at the most three. The third one is Yosemite HD recovery. After struggling a few hours, I can resume all the work in a few simple steps: Created two custom entries, one for Yosemite and the other one for Windows 8.1 in GUI section – picture #1 bellow; Navigated to the boot section of Clover Configurator and defined Yosemite as the default entry – picture #4 bellow; Hidden all the other useless three boot entries – picture #1 bellow. For the procedure of first step to work you need to go to the Tools, on Clover Configurator, and select Boot.log. After that, just press “Generate log” button on the right and you will be presented with something like you can see on the last picture of this guide (picture #5). The trouble is to look for the right strings for Yosemite and Windows 8.1 volumes. These strings are volume identifiers. When you found it, just Copy / Paste each string to the specific Volume field in the Custom Entries Editor pane, as you can see in pictures #2 and #3 bellow. To access Custom Entries Editor just click over the new custom entries icons. Don’t forget to specify the OS Type and Volume Type, or else the entry will not work. For the procedure on second step, copy the string corresponding to the default OS system you want to define and go to Boot section – picture #4 bellow. Don’t forget the Timeout field. It’s not critical, but the 5 seconds defined by default maybe too short if you choose to load the Windows OS system. At last, third step allows hiding unwanted entries. This was very hard to figure out. There was no way of hiding the unwanted Clover boot entries using the identifier volume strings. Don’t know why, but I executed almost all the options possible using the information in boot.log. Finally I understood that some entries related with Yosemite were stored in BOOTX64.efi located at EFIBoot. Still ended with four entries including an extra Windows useless entry. Even more hard, was to figure out that the useless Windows entry was stored in bootmgr.efi located at EFIMicrosoftBoot. Finally, complete success!!! Picture 1 Picture 2 Picture 3 Picture 4 Picture 5 Final Thoughts Initially it was impossible to load Windows from the Clover boot menu. I always ended with a black screen. Windows boots fine straight from the UEFI enter of the UEFI system boot menu. With Gigabyte motherboard I just have to press <F12> to access the machine system boot menu. I have to stress out that I have Windows and Yosemite installed in separate hard disks with GPT partition scheme. To avoid kernel panics at the beginning I had to keep integrated Intel graphic card enabled, along dedicated Sapphire AMD Radeon HD7770. Now, that annoying configuration isn’t needed anymore. Yosemite has native support for my AMD graphic card. So, it seems that, when trying to load Windows from Clover boot menu and at a certain point of the loading process, Windows doesn’t know which card to use to display the picture and simply freezes. I read the concerns of other users experiencing the same problem with dual booting Windows and Yosemite. So, in this particular situation, you just have to disable the integrated graphic card in UEFI / BIOS. GOOD LUCK!!!
  22. I saw some other post about amd systems not booting but I think my situation is a bit special. I have two disk: 120GB SSD Windows 1TB Hard Drive 700GB Mass storage for windows 120GB Mac OSX 80GB Ubuntu Linux 10GB Linux partition 4MB Linux partition Rig Specs FX-8350 GTX 760 Asus Sabertooth 990fx I would like to know how can I boot into my linux partition. I clicked the hard drive and the windows buttons on the mac osx start menu/ boot manager and they both said it was missing something (boot something) and ctr, alt, delete to restart. Then when I tried to boot into mac osx it would just crash. I am new to hackintoshes but very experienced with computers. I will post pictures sometime tomorrow to better show my problem. All help is greatly appreciated.
  23. Hello guys, I am a litte confused. Everyone is saying that you should install os x first and windows afterward. I have got two partitions. On the first one win7 is installed and I don't want to use all my data. I want to install os x on my second partition. So do I just have to install os x and with the chameleon boot loader I can make my win7 partition choosable again when my laptop is booting? Thanks!!
  24. Help installing triple boot
