Cant boot after install of fakesmc plugins [details inside]


So i finally got my hackintosh fully working (sound was a pain but i finally made it work)

So i overclocked a bit, did some testing but I couldn't see any temperatures.

Did some research and found that multibeast has some kexts that make it work (Fakesmc plugins) Installed it, and now it wont boot.

What i tried: Installed hackintosh on another disk and deleted the kexts on my main hackintosh disk.

Help with a Hackintosh for Video built, 1500$-ish Budget (newbie)

Hey everyone. So this is my first time building a Hackingtosh (never had the guts before), and also my very first time using reddit itself (which still appears as slightly confusing)! So, yeah, hello everyone!

I built Pcs before, but always using scrap parts, so never had to actually, properly decide them myself – and now I am utterly lost, as I am realizing I don’t even know that much about Pc parts themselves…

About the “why” and “needs”: I have a small video production company here, in Spain, and I’ve saved enough to buy (build!) a decent computer, once and for all, for decent editing. I’m aiming for an equivalent of a Mac Pro.

Main use:

  • General Video Editing.

  • BUT: sometimes 4K, and have a 360-degrees project soon, and other highly consuming processes (so I definitely need to upgrade).

  • NO Final Cut. Always working with the Adobe family and some other programs (that means stick with Nvidia, isn’t it?)

  • Will also have Windows. I work with a couple of programs I will be using on Win, not Mac.

  • I often have to move it around. So robust – at least –would be a plus.

I planned on 1200 – 1500 Budget. It is an investment after 2 years of saving, so if a slight increase in price may lead to huge benefits, I could consider it. On the other hand, that’s why I’m being extremely careful, as I don’t have much margin to fuck it up.

My thoughts so far:

  • From what I have been reading and such, seems like I should stick with a i7 processor. (Does it make sense to try to aim for 6 cores? Like Intel Core i7-5820K 3.3Ghz?)

  • Trying to aim for 32Gb ram.

  • Considering if one SSD with a partition, one being Win and other Mac, or two SSDs for each one – and then the 3rd drive with all working files (what makes sense?)

  • Best GPU possible within the budget (at least 4Gb, higher if possible)

  • A motherboard that could later accept 64Gb ram and other upgrades?

  • Does the case, the cooler, the powersupply, etc make any real difference?

I have been trying to find a “stable build”, as I’m a newbie with this, and it is for work purposes. Essentially, I already have a general idea… but can’t quite decide the “exact parts”… and any thoughts, guidance, help would be extremely appreciated.

Best way to install kali linux on existing hackintosh?

Here is my current build: (clover + yosemite + 2 ssd's one windows one osx + 2 hdd for storage etc)

I am trying to install kali linux as well to my current build. So far I partitioned my drive with osx, and then loaded kali usb, and installed kali to that drive.

Now do I install the kali bootloader? I did not select it, and finished installation, however no option for kali under clover options.

If I install Kali bootloader, will clover not work anymore?

Have Windows Currently, New SSD OSX Install?

Hey guys. If I have built a PC with windows installed (and compatible hackintosh hardware), Can I purchase another SSD at a later stage and install OSX on there without too much hassle? Thanks in advance

[Question] GTX 970 vs R9 390

Both cards are at similar price range and I've read a lot about how r9 390 has better performance, more vram and all that good stuff. But since my main goal is for the card to also be compatible with hackintosh build, I'm wondering what kind of reliability/support can I expect? I have found a successful installation guide, but since this is going to be my first build, I wonder if anything can break with future OS updates?

Mountain Lion 10.8.5 hackintosh installation reboot before install screen. Any bootflags to help?

Hello. I made this account as a desperate attempt to get help.

Bit of background, I have a Pentium G3258 with no dedicated graphics card. My computer is basically un-hackintoshable.

I'm trying Niresh's distros as a final result, (already tried legit El Capitan, didn't work.)

Another guy on Hackintosh Zone managed to get 10.8.5 working on a Pentium with no GPU, so I can probably do it to, the hurtle is getting to the install screen.

Any help getting to the install screen would be much appreciated. I boot in /v and all I get is loading library/extensions/mktxt and then a bunch of asterisks* and then it reboots.

I've probably tried every bootflag known to man, but want to know if there's something I'm missing.

iMessage only working with email recipients

So I just finished setting up a hackintosh for the first time and have everything mostly working. The one thing that I haven't gotten to work consistently is iMessage. I'm able to send and receive messages that are sent to contacts that have their email set up as the receiving/sending info, but cannot get it to work with contacts that use their phone number. I can see messages that I send from my iPhone, and can see the "typing" animation on the computer, but can't send the iMessage. Any thoughts? I'm not getting any error messages.

Is there any app or patch I can use to be able to play netflix 1080p on hackintosh?

  • Chrome is limited to 720p

  • HTML5 on safari doesn't work because of a DRM issue on hackintosh

I'm open to any solution (except running windows in VM, lol)
