iATKOS Y (OS X Yosemite 10.10.3) Hackintosh Desktop/Laptop PC Installer

Basic Information

- iATKOS Y is the Yosemite version of the OSX86 installer releases of iATKOS team.
The system version of the latest revision of iATKOS Y is Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.3.
We announced it on Feb. 2015 and released it on March 2015.

- iATKOS Y is a 7.8GB hybrid multi-partition dmg image file and it can only be installed using 8GB or bigger USB Flash Stick/HDD.
You will have to restore the iATKOS Y installer dmg image file to your target USB Flash Stick/HDD by following the instructions and boot with the USB device to install the system.
You can restore the dmg image to USB Flash on a PC (with Windows/Linux) or on a Mac.

- iATKOS Y is both for PC's and Real Macs.

- iATKOS Y dmg image includes 3 bootloader options to boot the iATKOS Y USB installer on your PC.
You can boot iATKOS Y USB installer with Clover UEFI, Clover Legacy, Chameleon Legacy bootloaders of your choice and you can install any of them to your target computer.
Clover version is 2.3k r3232, Chameleon version is 2.3 r2716.
This release is prepared to support wider range of computers by its hybrid multi-boot structure.

- For Macs, you can boot with the iATKOS Y USB by selecting it on the boot device selection screen.
Press and hold 'alt/option' key after pressing the Power button of your Mac until the boot devices menu comes up.

- iATKOS Y is designed only for Native Installation.
No Virtual Machine installations (Virtual Box/VMWare/Parallels etc.)

- Easy installation on Software RAID volumes. No additional user actions needed.

- iATKOS Y can work with AHCI, RAID and Non-AHCI (IDE) SATA modes.
No need to set SATA to AHCI Mode anymore.

- Network, Sound, Graphics, SATA/IDE and some other devices will be auto-detected and mostly auto-configured according to your hardware setup.

- iATKOS Y is designed for Clean installation.
You can migrate your Data/Accounts/Applications from another system using Migration Assistant after installation.

- Using software updater to apply main system updates just like Real Macs is possible using iATKOS Y on most of the compatible computers.

- Default Yosemite setting which shares your search terms you entered on Spotlight and Safari to Apple's and Microsoft's servers is disabled on iATKOS Y. Because, we think this is sort of a security breach, even for personal use.
You can turn on the option anytime if you want your Spotlight and Safari search results to become more specific for your location and your needs.

- Like the previous iATKOS releases, iATKOS Y is designed to run better on more compatible computers because of its original/vanilla/retail base system.

- UEFI/Legacy multi-boot operations (Windows 7, Windows 8, Linux) are easier.

- Wide range of options to make basic hardware work.

Beta 8 is Great . . .

iMessage works..partially

Searched deep and wide for a solution but have not fixed it yet..

Installed Yosemite 10.10.5 this morning. Tried the iMessage fix listed in tonymac and got the pop up box telling me to call apple support. Awesome!

Call them, they get things figured out and I am now able to log into FaceTime and iMessage.

FaceTime works fine but iMessage only works partially. I am able to receive and sent SMS on my "mac" via my iPhone but not iMessage. When I select a recipient there is an option to send via iMessage which is not grayed out however when I try to select it, nothing happens - doesn't switch to iMessage. It will not receive or send iMessage. My phone (iPhone 6+ if that matters) sends and receives iMessage fine.

Have tried the fix that reddit user proposed as well. I am on Ethernet - haven't gotten a chance to swap out wifi card yet, getting it tomorrow. And the Ethernet BDS or something is set to the proper value.

Hopefully there's a fix without changing my S/N as calling apple was a headache.

Problems with UniBeast and GeForce GTX 970

Im having some problems getting past the PCI config loading Yosemite 10.10.5 with Unibeast 5.2.0.

With these flags -v GraphicsEnabler = NO PCIRootUID=1 npci=0x2000

I get locked up on [PCI configuration begin]

I made it past that only once to: RTC: Only single RAM Bank (128) with flags

-v GraphicsEnabler = No PCIRootUID=0 npci=0x2000

Ive been searching around all day, and I think it has something to do with the graphics card drivers that its trying to load default in UniBeast? maybe not.

Has anyone else had this problem with this card? It seems like [PCI configuration begin] is a super common place to get hung up

Yosemite Installation Question

I have a quick question about installing yosemite without a mac. How do I create the usb drive if I don't have access to a mac? Could I order the Snow Leopard CD from Apple and install that way and then upgrade? If someone I know has a Mac, could I get the Yosemite files to make the installation usb that way without messing up their license?

Thanks and sorry if these are basic questions. I couldn't find too much info on the licensing aspect specifically on some of the sidebar resources.

Building my first Hackintosh, a few questions

Hey, all,

I'm replacing a garbage can Mac Pro with a home build; this will be my first Hackintosh, and I have a few questions.

  1. How up to date are the tonymacx86 instructions? There's a lot of cargo-cult woo over there ("repair permissions"? in 2015?) and I'd like to avoid unnecessary steps and pointless handwaving.

  2. My build (Asus x99 Deluxe, 2xTitan X, 5930k) is pretty standard, but I'm curious about SLI support in OS X. Does it exist? Or will OS X just ignore the second Titan?

  3. In general, what's the hit ratio here? How many people simply can't get anything working reliably?

Anyway, a few questions. First, is this all compatible? The 3 hard drive setup we're looking at is like this. The SSD currently holds a Windows 10 Pro installation. On top of that, the 500GB and 3TB drives are other, miscellaneous file storage.

I have no freaking room on the SSD to dual boot. Is it possible to dual boot from two different drives (I'll put OS X on the 500GB drive then)? And if so, can I do it in a way that I can keep my existing UEFI Windows install, or do I need to reinstall that at some point?

Thirdly, where can I get a copy of the OS? I have a disk image for iATKOSv1.0i somewhere, but I'm not sure if that's outdated or anything.

Anyway, I've been wanting to do this for a while, and never really got around to it. Thanks in advance, and I apologize for any noob-ish questions.

GPU for Final Cut Pro / Premiere / After Effects / Blender

Hey all,

I'm thinking of building a new hackintosh, but I'm honestly a little out of the loop on recent GPU tech. I'm looking for something that'll give me great performance for exporting and rendering with the programs listed in the title. I'd like to stick with something from the TonyMac buyers guide and ideally something that's as close to plug and play as possible. I've built a hack before, but it's been several years and has always been a little buggy, so I'm trying to go as simple as possible.

Thanks for any help in advance!

Now for the Yosemite part... I've already installed windows 10 with VMware running Mavericks in order to create the usb installation. I tried the Unibeast method from tonymac and it would constantly freeze during the loading bar with the apple logo. I also tried using Clover(Rampagedev method) And I couldn't seem to get the installation files on the usb after installing clover. Part 5 #4 is where I had trouble.I couldn't seem to get the Shell file to work properly, as I couldn't type in my password to start the installation. Other people have been having the same problem with no help in the comments, the shell file would immediately close after opening or they couldn't type their password.
I was also wondering, would I have to reinstall windows in order to dual boot? Or would I be able to partition the SSD and install OS X on the other partition?

How important is tonymacx86 config hard drive recommendations?

I am in the planning stages for my first Hackintosh and I am following the tonymacx86 August 2015 Buyers Guide for the CustoMac Mini Deluxe config. I am looking at the hard drive recommendations and they list the following:

  • Samsung 850 EVO 120GB

  • Samsung 850 EVO 250GB

  • Seagate Barracuda 1TB

I want to build the machine mainly for Storage and Network streaming so I could run a small SSD or a standard 1TB as the boot drive but I was also considering just slamming the case full of 4TB drives or something to max out my storage. Do the hard drive recommendations in these configurations make a big difference, if I just buy some other drive will I risk not being able to get OSX installed on it?

Does the Microphone work correctly on Yosemite?

I know I'm annoying with my questions, sorry.
I have a question. Does the microphone work correctly on 10.10.1 ?
I mean I can hear myself through the speakers when talking on the microphone, but Applications don't register the sound when I'm talking in them (Teamspeak 3, Skype, even CSGO, etc.)
I'm just asking is this how it's working right now or is there a fix for this ??
