I know I made a mistake trying to install OSX on an AMD machine, but I've spent so many hours (around 12) of troubleshooting, I feel like I'm already too deep in. I'm finally ready to ask for help.







I AM COMPLETELY AWARE THAT YOU PROBABLY CAN'T HELP ME, AND I KNOW AMD ISN'T THE BEST FOR THIS.







I would really prefer if you can't help me, please don't reply with things like "Get an intel" or "Amd sucks" or "amd isn't supported". I know all of these things, and I know posting this is probably not going to get me much help, but it doesn't hurt to try.







I have tried 3 different versions of Niresh, and iAtkos and I've still not figured this out. I'm not even getting kernel panics, or error screens, my PC is just restarting. I managed to install an older version of iAtkos (Like 10.5.7) to a virtual machine, and that's the closest I've gotten.







I've tried the flags: amd, "Kernel Cache"=\amd arch=i386, colors=32, cpus=1, graphicsenabler=yes, graphicsenabler=no, maxmem=4096







9/10 times I just get a restart. The words that flash on the screen are far too fast for me to notice. I've enabled AHCI (which I don't think would have any effect at this stage anyway), my bios screen is a bit different from what I see most guides for, but I feel like I have everything disabled that needs to be. I have one of the newer bios screens so if I'm missing something, that may be it. I can't get it to install on a virtual machine either so I doubt that's the issue.







The times I do get an error message it's the memory allocation one (Usually due to a flag I was just trying) or on the virtual machine I'll occasionally get "tsc_init: EFI not supported!"







Here is a brief video showing what typically happens, since I can't take a picture fast enough. (Ignore the roommate yelling randomly)







Niresh not installing (AMD FX-8120) - YouTube







My Spec are:







AMD FX-8120 (I do have it overclocked a little bit with AMD overdrive, I don't know if this would effect it? I actually just realized.)







ASRock 990FX Exreme4







16 Gigs of DDR3







AMD Radeon HD 7870







I AM TRYING TO DO THIS VIA USB
