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.

Should I do something before removing GPU and switching to Intel Graphics on Clover?

My graphics card seems to be on the fritz, and I've narrowed it down to the memory. I'm taking it to the store, but I imagine they might want to test it, so I could be without it for a couple of days.

I'm running Yosemite 10.10.5 on a Clover install. The system consists of a Sabertooth Z97 MkII, Intel i5 4690K, and a MSI NVIDIA 760 TF. I dual boot to Win 8.1 to play games, and that's when the problems come up (drivers crash, or a instant reboot).

Are there any possible issues from simply removing the GPU and connecting the monitor to the motherboard for integrated graphics? Are there any settings I should modify before removing it?

I realise this may sound simple enough to test, but my monitor only has a DVI connector, while the motherboard has DisplayPort and HDMI, and I don't have an adapter.

How to prune kexts?

When I setup Yosemite, I thought that MultiBeast runs were iterative. I didn't understand that each run with different options adds more and more kexts.

As a result, I have a working system but I have useless kexts and the system can't powercycle/poweroff by itself (I have to hit reset or long press power to turn off the computer after the system has shut down).

So I went on a mission, booted in safe mode and deleted all the kexts I selected over my many iterations. Now the Hackintosh won't make it into OS X.

Luckily I have a backup which I restored from.

How should I go about pruning useless kexts? What is the minimal set of kexts I need to run OS X and then install only the additional ones I need via MultiBeast?

Did I make a mistake getting an MSI 610?

I was trying to find a cheap video card that would work out of the box, so I got an MSI GT610 1GB. Well... I can't get past the Apple logo without the screen just going out completely, with the monitor not getting any signal (in verbose mode, it'll get all the way up to "DSMOS has arrived"). System loads with onboard video, only does this when I'm using the dedicated card.

Possible to create a Clover-based Yosemite installer without Unibeast?

My system doesn't require much modification in order to make it fully functional. I'm writing a specific guide for myself and others about making it Hackintoshable.

I was trying to reduce the number of proprietary tools/apps for getting this system working, but stumbled into a problem.

Previously, I used Unibeast to create the USB installer. I thought it was rather redundant that I use Unibeast for the grounds of a Clover-based system. So, I tried using TonyMac's Clover guide, with this script:

sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ --no interaction 

It goes through the motions of copying the files without any errors. I installed Clover to the drive and it is indeed bootable, but it's own install partition is not visible in the bootloader. I also tried this with the old method of restoring InstallESD.dmg to the USB drive, but had no luck. What the heck?? It seems the created partitions are not valid or bootable themselves, but I don't know enough to check or fix this.

I have Clover (and iMessage) working properly on my main SSD, so it's not a Clover problem.

edit: Forgot to mention... I cannot select "Install RC scripts to target drive" inside Clover while installing to the USB drive. It says the drive must be bootable.

Booting hackintosh, current tsc from rdtsc64() hangs

Long story short... Lenovo Ideapad Z580, i7-3520M, 8gb ram, trying to install Yosemite to a brand new Crucial 256gb ssd.

I let the installer run it's course, and it failed at the very last stretch because it couldn't "change the current startup disk." I figured this was alright, and that the OS had already installed properly. I can restart into the installed Yosemite, but using -v I see that it hangs on "Current TSC from rdtsc64() is xxxxxxxxx. Rendezvousing..." It hangs here every time, both with -x and -s.

I have tried booting with a flag I saw somewhere online, TSC_sync_margin=0. That didn't work. I have also tried putting VoodooTSCSync.kext in my 10.10 folder in Clover, and I still get this same error. Any thoughts?

Frustrating Issue With Hackintosh Yosemite Boot Loop. Please Help. Regarding VoodooPS2Trackpad.

I have already installed the OS. Ive been able to login, install the MultiBeast stuff, etc.

After I downloaded the update from the app store, I restarted and I constantly crash on VoodooPS2TrackPad. I cannot FOR THE LIFE OF ME, get it to boot up so I can remove that kext.

Ive tried like every boot flag in order to get it to start, and I have also tried booting it in safe mode with -x . Nothing seems to work.

All it does it stop at that line when I look with verbose on, and it crashes and restarts. Looping forever.

If anyone can help me get past this, I should be able to do the rest!

Getting Wake on Demand to work

I was wondering if anyone could help getting Wake On Demand to work. I have Wake On LAN working with magic packets, but I'd love to be able to wake it from my MacBook by just going to the Finder.

Sleep has been mostly working, waking with USB and Bluetooth devices. I am experiencing the issue with drives plugged in to the front panel being ejected on sleep. There is also an unexplained issue where the system will reboot the second it falls asleep.

My system has a GA-Z87MX-D3H, with it's built in i217-V ethernet NIC, and an Apple BCM94360CD for WiFi and Bluetooth. I'm running Yosemite using Clover, with boot flags slide=0 kext-dev-mode=1, AppleRTC set to YES, NeverHibernate set to YES and I'm injecting IntelMausiEthernet.kext, along with my other extensions. I have native power management using Piker-Alpha's ssdtPRGen script. Our network has two Time Capsules, so there are sleep proxies available. If I've left out anything relevant, let me know.

Edit: I have already tried disabling Clover's rc script that limits mDNSResponder. No success.

I think I have to leave Hackintosh behind. It makes me sad as hell to have to use windows!

I struggled for about a week straight to make the yosemite hackintosh work. It was functioning for about a month, then required updates to run newer versions of pages, numbers etc. Now it wont load or anything with the nvidia drivers to operate properly, identify my monitor or anything. I was using clover under the rampagedev method and could not get imessage or some of those other features to work right. Maybe when El Capitan comes out Ill give it another go. Anyone else ever feel completely disappointed by this hackintosh experience? I am so pissed off as I cant even get to most of my files under my hackintosh anymore. I just feel so defeated.

Can't get into Yosemite, have IOPlatformPluginDriver missing

I had Yosemite running, then changed a sound driver in Multibeast I shouldn't have, and now get kernel panics when I try to boot.

I have a dual boot system off one drive at the moment and am running Windows 10 as well.

My system is: MB Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H BIOS UEFI V f-14 CPU Intel Core i5 3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4 Ghz Graphics nvidia geforce GT 640 2048 intel processor is g12108-002 i5

I looked up the last line where I seem to be hanging...

AppleLPC::start - could not find IOPlatformPlugin driver

And found that I may be missing FakeSMC.kext.

How can I get to that /Extra/Extensions from terminal?

I am guessing that may not be my only issue, but it is recurring.

[Help] I have a 32-bit Pentium M laptop...

...and is there any way I could turn it into a hackintosh? Yes it's old. Yes, I know it can run only 10.6 and before. It's a HP nw8240/nx8220 (models differ only in graphics cards). I tried multiple distros (I really don't want to use a retail DVD, since this OS is old...), but none of them worked! Well, iDeneb did, but I couldn't get graphics to work, sound turned off randomly, WiFi supports crap WEP and unlocked only networks... So is there any way I could get this to work?

Edit: sorry for the title, new to reddit :)

How difficult is it to MAKE a driver?

Yes, I know it sounds stupid, but I am willing to give it a shot if it's just text based (like the Windows Nvidia drivers) and not code based (like Swift or Objective C). I'm considering buying myself an ASUS K501LX, which contains a GTX 950M which we have no support for yet. If one of the smarter higher-ups can enlighten us, the community can start throwing together Drivers for eachother.

Once again, stupid sounding, but I might as well give it a shot.

OS X not recognising overclock using Clover


I have a 5820k in an Asus X99-A.

I have my Hack running nicely for the most part. I also managed to update SMBIOS to show me as a Mac Pro 6,1. I've also managed to patch the VoodooTSCSync to the right details for my CPU (I believe).

My problem is that I have overclocked my CPU, but it does not show me as having done so in my system profile in About This Mac.

I am running at 4.0ghz but it shows 3.5. Is there anywhere to fix this?

Thanks in advance! So excited to be part of the Hackintosh community :)
