I've had my El Capitan Hackintosh running sweet now for a while and I'm extremely happy with it. I just have one outstanding issue and would love any guidance if anyone has seen similar?

The audio device is a Behringer UCA202 - it works brilliantly but has two quirks. Firstly it's slow to initialise upon first boot.. so the system boots extremely quickly, but the audio system doesn't seem to come alive for about 15-20 seconds until after the desktop has come up. The speaker icon remains greyed out then suddenly just lights up, and audio then works fine.

You get similar behaviour on shutdown too. If you turn on verbose mode you can see on the console that the system is waiting on USB AUDIO CODEC (which is how it shows up on the system). If you shut down the system you sit waiting on that device, before the system will actually reset / shutdown. Yet weirdly, sometimes (like 1 in every 10 shutdowns), it will shutdown immediately.

Spec is:

Asus H170 Pro GeForce GTX 970 Zotac OMEGA AMP

Not using Multibeast / Unibeast - using a more vanilla method with hardly any additional kexts loaded - I don't have the list of kexts currently, so will have to supply that later when I get home.

Thanks in advance.

Anyone have an issue with the HD530?

I turned off all the sleep functions and even the display sleep function.

If I leave the computer idling (without doing any functions) for about 30-50 minutes, screen goes black and I can't bring it back to life unless I do a hard reset.

It's gotten worse and it never did this. Haven't really changed anything.

Specs: i6700k 64GB RAM 512GB PCIe SSD 10.11.6 (with latest security patches) GTX1080 (non functioning, only use it in Windows 10)

Any help appreciated

I'm trying to get my R9 390 to work. Everything was booting fine until I tried to get the 390 to work. I can only boot in if I disable inject ATI. If I boot using -v I can see that it hangs here http://ift.tt/2dMGu53

GraphicsEnabler=No doesn't seeme to help I HAVE to disable injectATI

can't seem to find any info on why it won't boot, any thoughts?

I tried to set everything up using clover configurator.

I want to turn my PC into a dual boot Hackintosh and I need the iso file. I currently have a Yosemite Niresh one that boots in a VM but won't boot on my PC. I want to try a different iso that will boot.

I've been happily running this setup with El Capitan for a few months now. I have deliberately not installed Sierra because it was such a pain to get El Capitan working in the first place.

However, a few nights ago - I switched to Windows (installed on a separate SSD) and since then, have been hanging at the Apple Logo loading screen. I followed this guide and after using the "-v" boot flag started seeing the awful bluetooth controller message + some other logs about missing kexts and bad system policies.

I know the bluetooth controller message isn't the actual problem - but do any of you see anything else in there that might tell me where to start?

these are my current boot flags

dart=0 nvda_drv=1 kext-dev-mode=1 rootless=0 

I've tried adding "-x", "GraphicsEnabler=Yes", and "GraphicsEnabler=No".

Any ideas?

Does such a thing exist? I have a GTX750ti but honestly don't want to spend the time/effort to make sleep work properly with it. Sleep works with my on-board HDMI video but on-board of course is only 1080p, and I have a 4k monitor.

Any low profile displayport radeon cards that I can plug in that "just work?"

I'm on a fresh upgrade to 10.12.1

Super late to the party, I know. But just felt like sharing that you crazy people lured in another one.

I bought the laptop from my old job at a tech recycling/refurbishing center for a grand total of $80, with the intention of setting up Win 7 and Steam so my girlfriend could get some low-spec TF2 time. Stumbled across a site detailing the very simple process of installing OSX on it, researched it a bit more, and learned that my girlfriend has been wanting a Macbook anyways, and it just kind of happened.

Now I'm wondering what else I can put OSX on...

I'd like to built what I consider to be the ultimate audio rig. It's OSX 10.6.8 running logic 9 and a few choice 32 bit plugins. I know it's going to be a weird older machine, but maybe a few years ago, has anyone tried to make a nice laptop running OSX 10.6.8? Back in the day, when OSX 10.6.8 was the newest and coolest?

Many thanks in advance! :)

I installed Sierra OS on a Haswell-E X-99 system with nVidia GTX 970. After installing the latest nVidia web drivers, using the new NvidiaWeb flag and switching to 14,2 SMBIOS, I managed to log in to desktop. However after 5-10 seconds, everything on the screen will freeze but sometimes the mouse can continue moving around but nothing interacts with the mouse.

No such problem is encountered when using the default graphics driver. There is no graphics acceleration as expected.

Any ideas what is happening?

The specs for the amazingly nice looking machine are out and the i7 and 980M seem like they would be able to work with macOS, but I don't know for sure, and I want know if It can dualboot.

Followed a guide and opened iTunes and signed in before applying clover patch for serial number etc. Consequently, I have to wait 90 days before I can associate this device with my Apple ID. Come to think of it, is that wise?

Either way, is there a way to reset this and get it all happening now or do I just wait?

Hey everybody. I've got a functional hacktintosh setup a few weeks ago now, and i've been really happy with it.

This week i bought my third monitor, and I'm having some trouble connecting it. I tried it out on my Windows partition and it works fine.

Do HDMI and/or Displayport work on hackintosh (I don't have any displayport cable to test it with, so I'll have to buy that one.) But before I spend money on that I'd like to know if i can use the HDMI port? Am I just missing some kexts ?

My other two monitors are connected with DVI-D(144hz) and DVI-I.

An ex built me a hackintosh. He kindly updated it to El Capitan before we parted ways. Unfortunately there is a problem with the keyboard, and being a Hackintosh n00b myself, I don't know how to troubleshoot the issue.

I love Team Hackintosh but sadly Keyboard is not a team player. Keyboard goes through spurts of acting like a keyboard before it rebels and freezes. It may/may not finish typing a phrase depending on it's mood. I'm not sure how to convince Keyboard participation is desired.

Keyboard is a Logitech MK700/710 wireless. I also tried a wireless apple keyboard to the same result. Both are bluetooth. Both work for a hot second before they change their mind.

I'd rather not ask the ex, please help!

I get this damn error no matter no matter what bootflags or version of OS X I try. I'm currently using a 10.12 Unibeast installer but I did try to follow a guide for 10.11 and even tried going back to 10.9. I've tried using -f and -F but it only hangs at the loading screen and when I use -x it says cannot load kernel.

  • ASUS Sabertooth Z77
  • i7 2700k
  • R9 390X (When I installed 10.9 it was a 7970)
  • 32GB ram
  • 180GB Intel SSD
  • 2TB Seagatrash drive
  • 480GB PNY SSD
  • CD/DVD r/w drive I've pulled out of an old Dell Inspron 580
  • Stock Dell Mouse and Keyboard
  • Avermedia C985

I've gone into the bios and made sure that Sata was set to ACHI and even disabled Intel VT-d. I keep looking at all these guides for my mobo but they all claim to be able to boot into the install menu with out any bootflags. I have no clue what I'm doing wrong, only thing I could think of was remeber seeing a post a while back about the ASUS CPU powermanagement kext needing to be installed on the USB drive but I can't find it anywhere.
