HDMI question

I just finished piecing together my hackintosh/windows8.1 build that is intended as an htpc: -Gigabyte z77n Wifi -Intel i3-3225 -8 gb ram I installed yosemite and got everything working however when i disconnected the monitor and connected via hdmi to my tv as its final resting place it no longer finishes booting. it freezes. I assume it either has to do with the HDMI connection or the fact that the integrated graphics can't handle the resolution change from a 23 inch monitor to a 60 inch TV any suggestions

[HELP] boot0: error when booting to new Yosemite install (and DSMOS has arrived when booting to USB)

So here's the deal.

My specs are:

  • Gigabyte Z97X-UD3H motherboard

  • Intel i3-4360 at 3.7 GHz

  • 4 GB RAM (1x4 GB)

  • 1 TB WD Blue hard drive

I was able to get into the USB installer. However, when I ran Multibeast after the install, once I restarted, it gave me this error (when booting to the hard drive):

boot0: GPT

boot0: test

boot0: test

boot0: test

boot0: error

boot0: GPT

boot0: test

boot0: test

boot0: test

boot0: error

So I found this tutorial on how to fix this error (http://www.tonymacx86.com/general-help/65706-boot0-error-official-guide.html) but when I try to boot the USB installer again, it gives me a "DSMOS has arrived" freeze.

Please help as soon as possible, because I am building this for a family member and I don't want to bring shame to my family :(

Thanks

dual boot yosemite with SL

Hi guys. I am using Acer Aspire 4741G with specs as below:

intel core i5 450M 2.4Ghz 8GB DDR3 RAM Nvidia GT310M 500GB 5400rpm WD Blue

currently it is running Yosemite 10.10.3 with everything working perfectly (chameleon boot loader). From 500GB, I partitioned 250GB for this yosemite, and the leftover is unpartitioned.

i have been trying to get snow leopard installed into the other partition but having problems getting into the installer. I got my vanilla SL 10.6 image file inside the yosemite. prepped my 8GB USB drive, restored the image into the USB drive (without any boot loader). but during the chameleon boot choice, if i pick the SL installer, it loads for a while in verbose, and then looped back into the boot loader. i have also tried to make another USB stick with restoring the image and installing the chameleon boot loader into the stick, same problem. variety of boot flags too (-v -x GraphicsEnabler=Yes arch=i386 cpus=1 busratio=16 etc..)

also tried this http://www.hackintoshosx.com/files/file/44-boot-usb-snow-leopard-pkg/ but that installer keeps failing at the last minute.

any idea how to get into the SL installer?

Question about an unsolved issue regarding graphics card fans

So it's been about two years since I built my Hackintosh, and it has been wonderful smooth sailing since. However, I have a GTX 650 Ti Boost installed in it, and since day one the fans ran at minimum speed, and do not ramp up. After a while, I just assumed that this was normal, and simply stayed away from benchmarks and intensive tasks. However, after recently watching a Youtube Video of a newer built with a GTX 960, the fans were reportedly ramping up with the web drivers. Am I doing something wrong, or has Nvidia only just recently updated their Macintosh drivers for newer cards to support fan control?

Dual boot issue + noob question

Hey guys,

So good news! OS X side of things is working really nicely, well apart from iMessage and FaceTime which I'm not sure how to set up.

When I turn my computer on I get the chimera boot screen where I have the options to choose either Yosemite or windows. Yosemite works perfectly. But when I boot into windows I get an error saying that windows is corrupt and that it needs to be repaired....

The thing that i do not understand the most is when I boot windows manually from my BIOS everything works fine. No issues at all.

Here's to the noob question: I can manage to find out how to copy paste things from my keyboard. I'm using a windows keyboard and I've tried everything from alt, ctrl, windows key and the right has ult and ctrl.

So my questions are:

  • how do you get iMessage to work?

  • why am I getting that windows error and is there a fix or will I need to possibly reinstall windows all together?

  • how in the hell do do I copy and paste on my windows keyboard?

Thanks so much in advance to for the helpful replies :)

Dual booting with windows 7, already have Yosemite installed on VM

I would like to dual boot my PC with Yosemite currently running windows 7. I already have OS X Yosemite running in a VM using Virtual Box. What programs would I need to put it on a flash drive and partition the hard drive and such? I'm a totally new to all of this so sorry if its very basic. If anyone could make a guide it would be greatly appreciated. Again sorry for the noob question.

Want Advice for Dual Booting Gaming [Build]

Hey guys, as the title says, I want some advice and suggestions on a build that is intended for gaming (mainly on Windows, hence the dual booting). Below is what I have so far; I believe that all the parts are compatible since I picked them from some other posts and the tonymac site. What I really want to know is are the parts optimal (in performance and price) for gaming or if there are other things you could recommend me. Budget-wise, I'm trying to stay below ~$1,250, which this build does. Thanks in advance!

[Build Ready] Audio & Gaming Rig

I've decided to sell my MacBook Pro so I can finally build a decent rig! I don't mind Windows, but I want a PC that can also run OS X without any issues. I'm accustomed to the key commands and workflow of my audio applications in OS X, hence my desire to build a hackintosh.

This rig will primarily be used for gaming and audio editing (with Pro Tools), with a little photo/video editing on the side.

I'm not looking for anything super crazy that's going to push 4k with triple SLI cards, but the ability to upgrade the parts is a huge plus. My budget is $1,000. I already have a mouse, keyboard, and monitor. I've been mainly following the guides and suggested parts on the tonymacx86 site, so as far as I can tell, these parts will play nice together and run OS X.

My plan is to have one OS per SSD, so that I can format them separately and boot from the desired drive. I already have a larger HDD that I'm planning on installing for media storage. I realize the Corsair case is a little pricey, but I love the way it looks, and want my new rig to look good!

My main questions are about the CPU, GPU, and MOBO. Are these good choices? Is there anything cheaper that will perform equally well?

R9 290 being recognized, but only 7 MB.

So after many hours of combined research and reinstalling, I got Yosemite to recognize my R9 290 but only 7MB Of it. I am using Niresh 10.10.1 updated to 10.10.2. Any way I can fix this? Performance is lagging and choppy. I am using clover configurator and I do have 4096 as my VRAM. Thanks!

[Question] 4K and a normal 1920x1200 displays on GTX970

Hello,

I'm planning to upgrade my videocard and was thinking of buying 2415q Dell display to accompany my Dell 2412m.

Can anyone tell if I will be able to run 4k@60Hz and 2412m with GTX970 at the same time? If not, what are the other options? Use the old card at the same time as 970 to powerup the second screen?

Thanks!

Anybody else using this RAM?

I'm using a G.Skill sniper 2x8GB 1866MHz. There was a problem with my RAM (overheating), This has caused me to replace my RAM 2 times. My second RAM is fine until it's about a week later, and had caused me to replace it the second time. My mobo is MSi Z97 Gaming 3 (now changed to Gaming 5 along with my 3rd RAM). I doubt it's OS X burning my RAM (after it's been overheating, it'll never be cool again except powered off). Is there a possibility for OS X to do such thing? Or am I extremely lucky to get faulty RAM even after replacing? My third RAM is fine on my new mobo and windows 8 and btw, I'm using clover as a bootloader to boot OS X (not tested OS X on my 3rd RAM yet since I'm afraid I'll break it).
