Need some help with yosemite boot/soundcard noise/etc

Hi guys, I'm new here n to the world of hackintosh aswell. I've managed to install yosemite zone, but it wouldnt boot unless the installer-usb is sticked in, + I get a good amount of white noise coming out of my soundcard. I dont get this when im playing music thru my dac (usb soundcard) but thats only for headphones. Other than this, each time I boot i gotta make sure to have the "right" flags, or i get kernel panic (tbh i get kernel panic 50/50% each time i start my os, but once its booted n logged in, its stable as hell.) : GraphicsEnabler=No -v + I gotta unplug each device but keyboard/mouse, or kernel panic at boot

my pc:

asus b85m-g i5 4440 (haswell) gt 630 (1gb) 4gb ddr3 1600mhz ram

yosemite zone

Another topic: Can I use app store (make an acc etc) on hackintosh? Or would this bust the OS?

Thank you n have a nice day

[Help] I can not get 2 displays to be recognized at the same time. GTX 970, otherwise stable system

Hey /r/hackintosh ! I've been more focused on my actual programming work, and haven't had much time to work on my setup lately. I spoiled myself a bit after a long month of work, and grabbed the Dell U2515H, a fantastic 1440p monitor.

Plug it in and everything works totally fine in Windows. Quite excited, I boot into OS X, and no matter what I do, it can only recognize 1 display at a time.

I'm running a GTX 970 with the most recent Nvid web drivers on 10.10.3 . My motherboard is a Gigabyte Z97mx (microATX version of the Gaming 5, great audio quality and decent overclocking, I love it), and my CPU's a 4790k. Both monitors are plugged in via DisplayPort (My other display is a G-Sync 1080p monitor, so it has to be display port). Whichever monitor is plugged in first works, and whatever is plugged in after will not be recognized.

Every post I've found includes many other issues I don't have, like resolution problems or boot issues. My only issue is that one display will NOT be recognized, no matter what I do. I have nothing that even resembles a clue as to what is causing this, and don't want to break my install debugging it when I need this machine for work. Has anyone had a similar issue, or know of a resource that could help me debug it?

Planning my first build. Have some questions.

Hey guys, I am planning my first build. Before I go ahead with it:

1) are multiple graphic cards supported in tandem? Anyone who's done this? 2) can the onboard graphics card work with an additional graphics card? 3) I've a Mac Pro which died. The graphics cards used with it are fine, so can I use those? Instead of buying new ones?

Thanks in advance!

Vmware ESXI 6 and yosemite graphics issues

Hey guys, I haven't done this whole hackintosh thing in a while and am trying to catch up. I have an ESXi host running on a TS-140.

I am following this guide here: http://hackintosh-forum.de/index.php?page=Thread&threadID=21956

It's not in English but google does a pretty good job of translation. Essentially, im using the clover bootloader. I have not run the VMWare unlocker (it should not be necessary according to this).

My problem is, im getting stuck on the installer booting up due to what looks like a graphics failure. This is the error:

 IOGraphics flags 0x43 Previous shutdown cause:3 DSMOS has arrived 

And then it beachballs.

I've tried the following commands to boot:

 -v GraphicsEnabler=Yes PCIRootUID=1 -v GraphicsEnabler=No PCIRootUID=1 -v GraphicsEnabler=Yes PCIRootUID=0 -v GraphicsEnabler=No PCIRootUID=0 

In addition, the following boot options are added by Clover:

 dart=0 kext-dev-mode=1 

Although I don't know what it means. Oddly enough, safe mode doesn't work. -x causes the computer to restart almost immediately.

Could anybody provide any guidance?

For some reason every 35 or so minutes the whole thing will freeze but the motherboard, CPU, cooler, etc stay on. I can't tell if the card is on but I cannot interact with the system at all. When I unplug the DVI cable from the card and plug it back in I get static. The only way to "fix" it for me is to hard reboot. I need help ASAP because the codec I'm using to edit video (XDCAM EX) are only cheaply available on OSX with FCPX. Thanks in advance.

Compatibility Check, AMD.

Hello, to start off, I've read the faq and know that an AMD CPU is not the best thing to use when Hackintoshing but I'm just curious to see if my computer is compatible or at least could run a Distro of OS X, preferably Yosemite. (If this is breaking the rules, feel free to just delete this post, sorry)

PC Specs

  • Mobo: MSI Orchid-S
  • Processor: AMD FX-770K
  • Ram: 8GB DDR3, don't know what brand.
  • GPU: Amd Radeon R7 240
  • Hard Drives: 1TB with Windows 8.1 and 500GB for the Hackintosh

Computer

I've also never seen someone use the 770K so I doubt it'll work, but hey, worth asking. Thanks in advance!

Anyone who has upgraded their 2011 Macbook Pro?

I do a lot of video editing and motion graphics work and need a laptop. I'm debating on buying a used 17" 2011 Macbook Pro (i7 2.2GHz) and upgrading the ram to 16GB, putting in an SSD, and possibly replacing the optical drive with a hard drive and running a Raid 0 configuration. Has anyone out there already done this and can attest to the quality? Any trouble with creative cloud or replacing the parts or anything like that?

BCM943225hmb and audio (alc282) won't work 10.10.4

So everything but audio and wifi works on my y510p. I replaced the wifi card with an azurewave bcm943225hmb, because it was cheap, and I saw others had it working. The guide I followed for the audio was taken from the install guide for my laptop, but I can't get it working. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/372-applehda-for-alc282/

Hackintosh v2.0

Last year, I attempted and succeeded in making my self-built gaming PC into a dual-boot Hackintosh. 10.9 installed but it did not make use of my Graphics Card [EVGA GeForce GTX 750ti] so I never really bothered with using the Mac OS boot. I would like to start over and install Yosemite esp. now that it will/should be able to recognize my GPU - can anyone confirm?

Question is: I'm not sure which method... TonyMac or Niresh? or...??

Per the post, updating 10.9 did not go well so I'm pretty sure that's not an option and happy to start fresh but not sure where to go from here.

Thanks in advance for suggestions/hits/tips/experiences!

I've ran OS X 10.10.3 in VirtualBox on my laptop, and it ran fine. But, when trying to boot from a ash drive flashed with OS X Yosemite, my laptop does not detect it. Putting Chameleon boot loader on the flash drive boots me into OS X, but it freezes on the apple boot screen. [continued in post]

I was wondering if there was a way to trick the installer into thinking my CPU was supported. With VirtualBox, this helped me boot into it, and I think it may work again. I have a Dell Inspiron 15 3531, unmodified. The specs:

4 GB RAM

Intel HD Integrated Graphics

Intel Celeron N2830 processor 2.40GHz

I have been told numerous times that it is not possible to install OS X onto my laptop, and I've been told that it is possible.

I believe that it is possible to get it working, and I am willing to do whatever it takes to get Yosemite installed onto my hard drive.

TL;DR:

Laptop can run Yosemite from VirtualBox if I trick it to think my CPU is supported. Trying to boot from USB to actually install it on my system doesn't work. Is it possible to trick the installer to think my CPU is supported?

First hackintosh, dual boot.

Hi,

I recently upgraded my PC to an Intel platform. Recycled my old computer HDDs to create a hackintosh partition.

My specs are: Mobo: Asus H97M-Plus CPU: Intel Core i5 4690K GPU: Nvidia GTX 660 (Reference model, no extra branding) Planned GPU upgrade: MSI GTX 970 RAM: 8GB Crucial Ballistix Sport 1600MHz.

I have 4 drives, 2 70GB unused, a 1TB one for documents and games and a 128GB SSD for Windows 8.1

My plan is to install OS X in one of those 70GB HDD and choose which OS to boot.

Any special configuration for my PC, extra steps or a good guide that I should know? I know my way around PCs and Mac but still want to be sure and not screw everything up as this is my first hackintosh. I already have a MacBook so no problem getting OS X.

Thanks!

Planning first hackintosh

Hi there, I've been looking into adding an osx boot to my existing machine. My parts are compatible to my knowledge:

MB: MSI Z97 Sli krait CPU: i5 4690k RAM: Corsair Vengeance 1600 2 x 8 Video Card: windforce gtx 970 Ssd (with windows 8.1) HDD (almost full of games and probably the wrong format)

I may be getting another SSD and HDD from a friend and was wondering if anything would stop me from putting osx on the ssd as a boot option and using the new HDD as it's storage?

All I want to do is make sure the current installation of windows and my files on the existing HDD are not at risk. I'm not sure how they would be but I'm looking for confirmation, thank you

No find org.chameleon.Boot.plist

Hello all.

I installed Hackintosh from USB and was able to boot it correctly with the boot flags GraphicsEnabler=Yes PCIRootUID=0.

Then I installed Chimera from Multibeast. I realized that I had to set the boot flags permanently (booting from HDD didn't work). So I booted again via USB to edit org.chameleon.Boot.plist. But I can't seem to find it in /Extra.

Did I do something wrong?

Can't get my z97 pro to stop crashing during install.

Anyone know how to get past this. I press f8 and select usb, not os x. The apple logo pops up, I get the spinning icon, and then a black screen appears. I think I have everything that needs to be disabled disabled. No clue how to get past this.

Compatibility references for prebuilt workstations?

I've built many machines from components in the past couple of decades, and I'm kind of over it. I would much prefer to buy a high quality prebuilt system and constrain the amount of fiddling I need to do to the software layer.

Perhaps because of the DIY spirit of hackintoshing in general, I haven't found any good references for what prebuilt machines from reputable companies are or aren't smoothly compatible with the current state of the hackintosh art. If anyone has any recommendations either for systems, or places I can find documentation of this, I'd be very grateful.

I have a moderate preference for xeon/ecc, but could live with a 6+ core i7 if necessary. At least four dimm slots and a plethora of pcie slots (which are the reasons I'm not just buying a Tube). I do not care at all about the looks or size of the machine, and am not particularly concerned about price.

Any pointers much appreciated. Thanks!
