  1. Changelog 2015-12-19: Added instructions for El Capitan along the guide and updated the attachments - now including Clover 3320. Reason: ASMedia 1042 is finally supported since El Capitan 10.11.2 and GenericUSBXHCI 1.2.11. For El Capitan stable releases, non-Apple kexts should preferably (in some cases, mandatorily) be copied to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.11, for which you'll need InjectKexts=true and disabled SIP. post-install.zip updated with kexts that work for El Capitan too. Included separate versions of Audio_NP530U3B, one for each OS: Audio_NP530U3B_Mav.zip and Audio_NP530U3B_ElCap.zip. USB 3.0 is working for installation. 2015-08-23: Tested the same method for OS X El Capitan Public Beta. Basically all you need is to update everything (Clover and all the kexts) and the only really important modification is to use these as the Clover boot arguments: -v kext-dev-mode=1 -rootless=0 (thanks leocg). The system will already be usable with full backlight and graphics. Also, the current GenericUSBXHCI doesn't work with El Capitan and must not be loaded (no USB3, ASMedia 1042 unsupported so far). I'll probably adapt this guide or create a new one once I reach a good level of completeness with El Capitan. 2015-05-18: Added display color profile, fine-tuned for this laptop: Display Calibrated.icc.zip 2015-03-22: Modified config.plist with AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB patches so that HDMI audio is working now (thanks toleda). Also modified config.plist so that now the _DSM method from HDEF device is included by Clover, no need for DSDT patch anymore. 2015-03-20: Added NVRAM and EmuVariableUefi considerations (thanks nguyen). Updated SSDT part with updated ssdtPRGen. 2015-03-18: Big update! apianti made me notice that the system was only able to boot with a specific Clover version because that version I had, had a special driver called HFSPlus, which is not part of the Clover installers. The VBoxHfs driver won't boot from external drives, only from internal drives. Knowing that, now we can use even the most recent Clover version and that definitely makes things easier, especially for booting newer OSX's. 2015-02-25: updated with EAPDFix v2.0.1, instructions for kext reload added to the guide. Updated all kexts from post-install.zip to the most recent versions. 2015-02-23: Some extra reviews, added an introduction and Clover Configurator suggestion. 2015-02-22: Some overall minor updates (new links, formatting, grammar...). 2015-01-13: Added Chatzki report about a possible mistake on the section that explains how to activate two-finger scrolling gesture. 2014-09-18: it's safe to update to 10.9.5, no pre- nor post-interventions needed. 2014-07-16: it's safe to update to 10.9.4, no pre- nor post-interventions needed. 2014-05-31: it's safe to update to 10.9.3, no pre- nor post-interventions needed. 2014-03-17: Removed NullCPUPowerManagement.kext from Clover_2236.zip - thanks nguyen! 2014-03-13: EDID injection section moved to a dedicated thread 2014-03-12: added boot time improvement tips 2014-03-05: TRIM enabler is now done on-the-fly by Clover. No extra app is needed anymore. The changes were in the config.plist both from Clover_2236.zip and post-install.zip 2014-02-27: it's safe to update to 10.9.2, no pre- nor post-interventions needed. 2014-02-21: added some clarifications after feedback on #16. 2014-02-17: updated BIOS section with pictures and discovered the reason why I lost access to it before. That means: you won't lose access to yours anymore 2014-02-15: reconsiderations about the hibernation. 2014-02-10: changed the whole SSDT part, new config.plist needed. I'm still studying about the optimal way to use the SSDTs but this is already giving a Geekbench 10% increase and so far no problems. Updated some kexts. Small change in audio patch. Removed EHCI and DTGP patches (DTGP now done by Clover). 2014-02-05: removed some useless DSDT patches (now only 4, all really needed). Fn key and LPC work without patches. 2014-01-31: added some hardware specifications to help on search and specs comparison 2014-01-30: corrected AppleHDA269.kext, now only 16KB and truly ready for system updates (the AppleHDA binary patch is done in Clover). Added Clover patch to enable VGA. 2014-01-29: added AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementInfo.kext output for reference (references.zip) 2014-01-28: three Windows steps could be removed thanks to a patch rewrite by RehabMan; internal microphone now working (thanks Mirone!); 100% vanilla now: created an AppleHDA269.kext following Piker's New style of AppleHDA.kext patching Special acknowledgement: kyndder and RehabMan for their extensive support, patience, and for having taught me everything I know. So, what is cool about this guide? There are still many many tutorials around the web teaching you how to install a Hackintosh in a very old fashion: using distros (hacked versions of Mac OS), using Chameleon bootloader, Legacy booting, manually patching kernel extensions... Here I have put all my efforts on the newest methods available in order to have a very stable and clean system, without hard modifications to it. Let me give you an example: the first version I installed was 10.9 and I was able to gradually update to 10.9.5 without extra efforts (at all!). I just went into the App Store and clicked Update, just like a real Mac. When El Capitan came out, almost no modifications were needed to my setup, actually the hardest part was waiting for people to release some driver updates The Clover bootloader is the main facility here. Thanks to it, you can UEFI boot and configure some patches that are applied on-the-fly to the Mac settings, keeping all the OS files original (or vanilla as you'll often read), but simply read differently once the system is starting. Instead of hacking the OS, you hack the way the OS interprets your machine. That's why everything keeps working when you update the system. Finally, and maybe the most important, a completely bizarre particularity of this laptop was found and solved after weeks of research: you will need an EDID injection in order to activate the built-in display (ok that's kinda common, actually) and then you also need a DSDT edit to achieve full brightness, because there's a memory register set to a value that turns out to be very low on this specific display. The overall procedure here described is recommended even for different laptops or even desktops, however keep in mind that this guide can be used then only as a very superficial base - surely many modifications here recommended should not be done, and some extra will be needed, especially on the DSDT. The steps here described are strictly optimized for the Samsung Series 5 NP530U3B laptop. Working: Built-in display with brightness control, full backlight and resolution Intel HD Graphics 3000: QE/CI, full speed step (350MHz - 1.15GHz), HDMI (with audio) and mini-VGA outputs Intel Core i5-2467M: full speed step (800MHz - 2.3GHz) Realtek ALC269VC: built-in speakers and microphone, headphones Realtek RTL8168: Ethernet ASMedia 1042: USB 3.0 (for El Capitan, only since 10.11.2) Bluetooth Battery percentage Touchpad Keyboard commands with the key Fn Mavericks only: Card reader and Integrated camera iCloud, iMessage, FaceTime (last tested on March 22nd 2015) Sleep (from RAM only) Not working: Integrated WiFi. Intel Centrino will probably never be supported, please buy a compatible WiFi USB Adapter. Hibernation, which implies that the PC will keep some power usage while sleeping. FYK, hibernation doesn't exist on real Macs so this is not simple to get. El Capitan only: Card reader and Integrated camera Unstable: Mavericks only: no audio after boot and/or after sleep. Needs to reload EAPDFix.kext El Capitan only: shutdown and sleep will instantly reboot the machine if certain USB devices are kept connected, such as my WiFi dongle. When I take it off before sleeping or shutting down, they both work fine. Both systems: the USB 3.0 port often doesn't work after sleep This guide will simply and only avoid you one special job: research. This is not meant to be and will never be a "next-next-finish" procedure, unless you want to have a crappy system, and I don't really expect that from an Apple user. You will be able to install it after some hours of work. It took me a month to study and test a lot of solutions until I had a usable system, and I keep studying to make it better One of the very important parts of a Hackintosh consists in modding the DSDT, a system file containing lots of information about your PC's components and how they should interact with the system. This file is unique for each machine and even the same machine could have a different DSDT during its lifetime (e.g. after a BIOS update or a hardware upgrade). That means you should never use someone else's DSDT. So, during this guide, you'll prepare your very own DSDT, starting from the origin of it. Think positively: the hard work will only occur on the first installation; for later ones, you'll take profit of almost everything! Last but not least: the majority of the steps follow a necessary order, thus it is really important not to overpass. Don't reboot the machine if the guide doesn't say so, for example. Even with all the steps having been severely tested for over 2 years on tens of different OSX builds, I don't take any responsibility for any problem that could occur in your machine. You should also not attempt this guide if you don't know how to boot a USB Live Linux or to remove your HDD and install it into another machine, just to mention some usual PC recovery activities one should be used to in case of failures. Let it begin! --------------------- On Windows: 1. Update your BIOS on Samsung's SW Update. Here, the installation froze some times, and at every freeze I restarted the PC and retook it, until it finished successfully. I'm using version 13XK; I don't recommend using older versions and there aren't any newer while I write this guide. 2. Download the attached Clover_3320_preinstall.zip and extract it to any-size pen drive just formatted as FAT32. If you prefer, you can download the Clover installer, replace VBoxHfs driver by HFSPlus driver, install drivers EmuVariableUefi and OsxAptioFix, replace the config.plist with the one included on this zip and include the needed kexts in order to be able to boot and have your keyboard/mouse/touchpad/USB 3.0 detected. However, the zip already includes all that. 3. Follow steps 1-3 of the EDID injection guide to dump your EDID in base64. 4. There's only one adjustment to be made in the attached Clover: open EFI/CLOVER/config.plist on notepad, search for "CustomEDID" and change the string to the EDID64 you got from the guide. If you don't do that, you'll get a black screen on your laptop after booting Mac OS X, as said. ------------------------------ On the BIOS setup: In the Advanced tab, change AHCI Mode Control to Manual, and Set AHCI Mode to Enabled. Notice that "Fast BIOS Mode" lies that if Disabled the system can boot Legacy OS only. It does boot UEFI OS when Disabled! Moreover, you won't be able to boot from a USB drive if this is set to Enabled, so leave it Disabled. If someday you want to enable Fast BIOS, you'll need to use Esc+F2 whenever you want to enter the BIOS again. In the Boot tab, change UEFI Boot Support to Enabled and enter Boot Device Priority to put your device containing Clover (USB HDD probably) to the 1st place. I had problems when booting from "select boot device", so it's better to set it here. ------------------- Installation: 1. Download OS X Mavericks/El Capitan on the App Store and install it to a USB device following OSXDaily's guide. The USB device should be preferentially formatted in a GUID partition table via Disk Utility and the install partition should be at least 7GB. You can install Clover to the EFI partition of this USB drive and even have multiple installations, as I have on my USB 3.0 external HDD (see the picture below). If you don't have a machine running Mac OS X, you may want to try a VirtualBox, and in that case you might want to exchange files between Windows and the virtual Mac, for which you may want to refer to paulscode post. 2. Plug the Clover and Installation USB drives to any USB port. If you have put your installation files to a USB 3.0 device, you'll likely speed up your installation by plugging it to the USB 3.0 port. Use a 2.0 port if you have any troubles. Once you've booted from the USB, Clover should show up. Press the F4 key; this is going to save a lot of original files from your machine, such as the famous DSDT, in the folder EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/origin. We'll use them later for some patching. Clover may seem to have frozen for some seconds; don't panic, it is just saving the files. 3. Enter "Boot from Install OS X Mavericks" (or El Capitan) and wait for the install to load, it should take up to 2 minutes to show the graphics (time will vary depending on the attached drive, especially if USB 2.0 or 3.0) and then around 30 seconds to ask you for a mouse/keyboard if you haven't connected a mouse to a USB port. If it freezes for longer than this in any message, there's something wrong. Please post it here if you're using the same laptop model, otherwise refer to Google or create your own topic in these forums saying where did your boot hang up. 4. Once the graphical installation is loaded, you'll surely notice the brightness is very low (maybe you'll even think your display is off!). I found out that there's a memory register which needs a specific value to activate full backlight, and RehabMan then built a DSDT patch that sets this register in conjunction with ACPIBacklight.kext. You'll install both the patch and the kext later, because these procedures require the Mac OS to be installed, so you'll just have to be patient and use the display like that for the first moments... 5. Open the installation's Disk Utility (top bar > Utilities > Disk Utility) and partition your HDD. In case you're intending to dual-boot later, leave some free space for the Windows partition(s) after the Mac partitions, otherwise it won't work. If you plan to use the Windows free space for multiple partitions, be aware that the installation can only be made in the first of them. If you want a partition with native read&write support on both Windows and OSX, use exFAT. NTFS is read-only on Mac and FAT will give you problems for files bigger than 4GB. You don't need to mess with the SSD. You can try to install Mac on it, but 16GB is just too small, you won't be able to install almost anything on your Mac then. If you want to make a slight upgrade and have an SSD dedicated to the Mac, go ahead and get a 32GB+. Another option is to create a Fusion Drive between the SSD and the HDD: this is the solution I've been using for over a year. People say this also tends to corrupt more... Well, my installation got corrupted after 1 year, but the overall speed boost I get everyday definitely made it worth it. Remember to Time Machine as often as you can! It certainly saved me days of work when I needed it. 6. Quit Disk Utility, follow the installation, restart and boot to your brand new Mac OS X to make the initial settings! ---------------------- On Mac OS X: Installing kexts: Drag and drop kexts over Kext Utility icon. If they're many, drop them all at once, otherwise at each kext installation the app will rebuild the kernel caches and this takes some time. To uninstall a kext, simply move it from the folder /System/Library/Extensions (also known as /S*/L*/E*) to a backup folder and run Kext Utility to update the caches. The kext is going to be loaded on the next boot. El Capitan: the next boot should be made with SIP disabled. Run kextstat on the terminal to certify that the kext is loaded, then run Kext Utility again to re-update the caches. In order to disable SIP, all you need is to set RtVariables/CsrActiveConfig and RtVariables/BooterConfig in the Clover's config.plist. Open the file, find the section RtVariables and make sure it looks like this: <key>RtVariables</key> <dict> <key>CsrActiveConfig</key> <string>0x67</string> <key>BooterConfig</key> <string>0x28</string> <key>ROM</key> <string></string> </dict> PS.: I've intentionally cleared the ROM string. You can generate one by using Clover Configurator. 1. Install the kexts included in the attached post_install.zip (RealtekRTL8111, ACPIBacklight, ACPIBatteryManager). These links serve not only for giving credits but also for verifying in the future if there exist any updated versions. 2. Reboot and check if your Ethernet (cable) network is working. 3. SSDT: read the readme, download and run ssdtPRGen.sh as normal user, not as root. You must be connected to the internet (the script downloads information about your CPU). Answer No to all the questions asked by the script. 4. Copy ~/Library/ssdtPRGen/SSDT.aml to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched. Also copy EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/origin/SSDT-1.aml to the patched folder. Some methods in the DSDT make reference to a register defined in the original SSDT-1 so we need to keep it. These will be the only SSDTs to be loaded as Clover is set to drop all of the native ones (that's defined in the config.plist). Reminder: don't reboot yet! 5. DSDT: use MaciASL. Open the file DSDT.aml stored on the previously mentioned origin folder and apply the patches included on post-install.zip, compile and save as DSDT.aml on EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched. Apply the patches slowly, let the app take its time. It will only be possible to save the file if there are no compilation errors! Warnings and remarks are ok, some are going to show up, and they're going to be fixed via Clover patches. 6. Edit EFI/CLOVER/config.plist : look for the key "Generate", which is set to true, and change it to false. Now we're using a custom SSDT so we won't need Clover's auto-generation anymore. P.S.: we've manually applied some patches to the DSDT because it's unpracticable to apply them with Clover. The others are applied via Clover to reduce the amount of manual patches. This way, in case of a BIOS update or a hardware upgrade, you'll have to reapply just a very few patches to your new DSDT. 7. Reboot. Notice while booting the correct startup of AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement. Power management solved! And if you correctly applied the DSDT patches and installed the included ACPIBacklight, then you should also have full backlight. We're almost there! 8. (Very recommended) Download and run the latest Clover installer and install it to your hard drive. This time we have some modifications in order to NVRAM work properly. Click on Change Install Location if your hard drive is not already selected. Continue > Customize. Check Install for UEFI Booting Only. This will automatically install Clover into the EFI partition. Drivers64UEFI: check OsxAptioFixDrv (only this one, and please don't use OsxAptioFixDrv-v2, it gives you artifacts on screen). Check "Install RC scripts on target volume" and "Install all RC scripts on all other bootable OSX volumes". Those are for NVRAM purposes. Once installed, replace VBoxHfs-64.efi by HFSPlus-64.efi to be able to boot from external drives I had a kernel panic at my first reboot, but since the second reboot everything works flawlessly. If you want more information about NVRAM and how to test if it's working properly, please refer to Everything you need to know about NVRAM (by nguyen). The fixes below have no specific order and they all require the system to be rebooted in order to start working. You're still welcome to apply them "at once" and reboot after all, but do it as you wish! Audio: install the kexts from the attached Audio_NP530U3B_Mav.zip (Mavericks) or Audio_NP530U3B_ElCap.zip (El Capitan). Mirone helped me to update the xmls, then I've put them to a new dummy kext (so that you don't need to remove original AppleHDA.kext) and edited EAPDFix.kext for this laptop's nodes. EAPDFix is for audio after sleep. If you ever suddenly have no audio (mostly happens after a cold boot), all you have to do is: sudo kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/EAPDFix.kext sudo kextload /System/Library/Extensions/EAPDFix.kext I have a script called EAPDReload.sh on my home folder, so I open up the terminal and run ./EAPDReload.sh. It has the same code as above, but the first line must be #!/bin/bash. I need it more often on Mavericks than on El Capitan. Battery: you've already patched and installed the kext, now you just need to go under System Preferences > Energy Saver and check "Show battery status in menu bar". Bluetooth: if you don't use it, remove the *Bluetooth* kexts from /S*/L*/E* in order to remove the support; however, this won't turn off the board. Scrolling gesture on the touchpad: System Preferences > Trackpad, move the tracking speed all the way up, test the scrolling, then reduce the speed back (thanks Andrea_ITA). Chatzki reported it worked for him after moving the scrolling speed all the way up. App Store & iCloud: do the steps described in the method #3 from this guide (remove all the Ethernet interfaces, then remove file /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist and reboot). It's better to do this before having configured your network, but it's not mandatory. Also, if you haven't installed the RealtekRTL8111 kernel extension, then do it, otherwise you won't have an "en0" interface and Apple is going to say that your computer could not be verified. If Spotlight is heavily using the CPU and you are dual booting with Windows, prevent NTFS drives indexing. Hibernate: this is a known problem for PCs booting in UEFI mode. A temporary fix (currently works only for Mavericks) is to change the hibernation mode to 0 - this way, the sleep image will be stored in the RAM instead of in the disk, so the PC will keep draining the battery (low power of course) to provide energy to the RAM memory. It's different from the hibernation that we're used to in a Windows system, because it doesn't even exist on a real Mac. By the way, a real Mac has three hibernate modes: 0, 1 and 3. Many people succeeded on making a Hackintosh hibernate by using bizarre values like 21, 25, 29, 57... But I wasn't successful the time I tried it. Run the following command to set mode 0: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 For El Capitan only, we will also execute two more commands: sudo pmset -a standby 0 && sudo pmset -a autopoweroff 0 In case you haven't done it and your laptop has hibernated, you'll notice on the next boot that the Mac OS X boot option in Clover now has "(Hibernate)" beside it. If you try to boot that, you'll get a reboot, that's why we change the mode to 0. If that happened to you, hit the spacebar over the "(Hibernate)" boot option on Clover and enter "Cancel hibernate". Once booted, execute the step above and also the command below: sudo rm /var/vm/sleepimage If you don't want sleepimage to ever be saved again (because it takes some Gigabytes), you can do this trick to create a 1 Byte unmodifiable file (thanks kyndder): cd /var/vm sudo rm sleepimage sudo touch sleepimage sudo chflags uchg sleepimage As mentioned in the working/not working/unstable (beginning of this guide), sleep can end up rebooting your machine depending on what is connected to the USB ports. It might be useful to know that you can prevent the system from sleeping when you're away from it using the caffeinate command, either alone for infinite waiting or followed by -t and the amount of seconds it should be kept running: caffeinate -t 3600 The common issues below are already solved for you if you're using my files: USB 3.0 on chipset ASMedia 1042: it works perfectly on El Capitan only since version 1.2.11 of GenericUSBXHCI, included on Clover_3320_preinstall.zip among the injected kexts. Curiously, Apple has reverted a change on the USB drivers on El Capitan 10.11.2 that made this possible. On earlier versions of ElCap, ASMedia 1042 is not supported. [AGPM controller] unknown platform: the MacBookPro8,1 SMBIOS requires your GPU to be named IGPU. On this laptop, it's called GFX0 instead. The Clover config.plist included in Clover_3320_preinstall.zip makes a DSDT patch that takes care of the renaming. The Mac OS X setup is over! Now run NovaBench (App Store), OpenGL Extensions Viewer (App Store) and GeekBench (free version on their website) and compare them with my results for the stock NP530U3B-A02FR: GeekBench, NovaBench, OpenGL (my current results are actually higher as I added a 4GB 1600MHz memory module). If you feel you're having problems with your installation, you can also compare the snippets of interest on your DSDT and SSDT to mine. The AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementInfo.kext output is interesting too. These are all included (DSDT, SSDT and AICPUPM output) in the attached references.zip. ------------------------------ Going further I really really recommend you to keep your Clover updated and to install Clover Configurator to take the most out of it. There will be plenty of options in there so you won't need to know each of the config.plist keys, everything is in the Configurator interface. Open your config.plist with the Clover Configurator and use the magic wand to get automatically filled the parameters in the SMBIOS section. For the SMBIOS/SmUUID, open the Mac terminal and run: uuidgen This will generate a random UUID, just copy-paste it to Clover Configurator. Besides the SmUUID, I've also cleared the RtVariables/ROM, RtVariables/MLB, SMBIOS/Board-ID and SMBIOS/Serial Number. All of these can be generated by Clover Configurator and I recommend to do it as chances of getting a working App Store, iMessage and FaceTime are bigger. ------------------------------ Installing Windows 8 Recommended read: Beginners guide to UEFI Dual boot OS X and Windows Format the SSD as FAT32 (MS_DOS option on Disk Utility) otherwise you'll get errors during Windows installation (apparently it tries to place some files to the SSD). If for some reason you can't format your SSD, unplugging it will also work. Format a USB drive for Windows 8 from a Windows computer (on Mac you'll get an error about duplicated privacy.rtf while you copy the .iso files) Extract the Windows 8 ISO to the USB drive. In case you've created a partition for Windows instead of leaving free space, erase that partition using the Windows installer, then select the new free space and click Next. Windows will automatically create the needed partitions on that space. To recover Clover, boot Windows and connect your pen drive containing Clover. Hold Shift key while you click on Restart to enter "Advanced startup" menu. Choose to boot from USB-HDD. Sync time between Windows and Mac: change Windows registry key. ------------------------------------------- Installing Clover to the HDD If everything seems to be running fine, you can start making some customizations to your Clover config.plist, such as removing "-v" from the Arguments key - this will show a gray Apple screen during the boot instead of a black console. The console is useful for debugging but if everything's fine then you don't really need it anymore. Also, personally I don't have other systems installed, I have Windows and Linux installed as virtual machines inside the Mac. So, it's pointless to select the system I want to boot. That's why I activated the "Text only" option in the GUI section and set Timeout to 0. As a final tune, you can now enable Fast BIOS option. Your Mac will boot in under than 10 seconds from the moment you click the Power button. Finally, you probably don't want to use forever a USB drive only for booting. You can install Clover directly to the hard drive, instead. Please follow step #9 and then the following steps: If you want to use your SSD with Mac, format it as Mac OS Extended and mount its EFI partition using Disk Utility. EFI partitions are hidden, you'll need to follow this tutorial to see them. Copy the EFI folder from the USB drive to the SSD EFI partition. You can also use the HDD's EFI partition. Mount the HDD EFI partition and copy the folder EFI/Microsoft to the just created EFI folder on the SSD. When you reboot using the Clover USB, go to Clover Boot Options and enter Add Clover boot options for all entries - this way, your BIOS will be able to boot from whichever drive you installed Clover, including your SSD (normally the BIOS doesn't have an option to boot from the SSD). Reboot now without the Clover USB and it should work! ------------------------------------------- Final words It took me a lot of time to write this guide, but I felt I needed to do it after so many people hard working to help me and the whole community. If you have something to add, please do it! You're also welcome to make any critics and further suggestions to this guide. If you wish to use it as a base for writing your own guide, I just ask you to link to my topic. Good hacking!
  2. Hi I need help installing Mac OS Sierra on my laptop (Samsung NP550P5C-S05IN). I have experience installing OS X - Mavericks & Yosemite previously on this laptop and now want to install Sierra. I have followed many guides available on the web for the installation and I have created a USB using "clover" and "createinstallmedia" command and is able to boot up to the installation window and proceed with the installation. The only problem I am facing is to after the first reboot, when I boot into 'Install Mac OS' the installation displays: Mac OS can't be installed on this computer. Unable to un-mount the volume for repair. I already tried changing various clover settings and also tried various SMBIOS but to no help. Thanks!!
  3. Hey, i had hackintosh in old days of chameleon but clover is new to me. I used this guide Guide maverics samsung 530u3b but to be able to install i had to use another config to match the hd4000 card on my 530u3c, becouse on that setup install froze on graphic initialization. With changed config i was able to prepare to install, but it took long time and there were some error's. After reboot install starts and it goes with no problems at all. When system starts it looks like everything is ok, but... The only usb device that is visible by system is this with install maverics. Partition with clover(on the same pendrive is not). I tried 4 different usb pendrive, with fat32 and with journaled and nothing is visible. I couldn't find the way to install kext's becouse there was no ethernet and no usb working. Sooo i came up with idea to store kext utility and kext's in the install partition of maverics pendrive.Kext utility work's perfect but kexts makes no difference. What to do? What you need to be able to examin this problem, i will send logs, or other information. Thank's for your time My setup: Samsung 530u3c i5-3317um 8GB ram SSD Samsung (new) i will be changing bluetooth card sound card alc if i remember 296 one Matt

    amd a8 w/yosemite [HELP]

    Hey guys, i wanna do a dual boot for my samsung notebook and i need help. i prefer to install a genuine version of OS X Yosemite? to my external hard drive, just a 1TB toshiba (i know toshiba isnt the best to go with but it was what i could afford and take with me to travel) but i dont mind settling with a N{censored}, i just want to be sure i get all the nice features and a feel of a real mac. i would love to do a dual boot but everytime i search on youtube or google theyre always some sort of different amd processer. I dont really want to do a virtual machine because that kinda defeats the purpose of doing hackintosh in a way. the person i followed a tutorial was by 38darkness42 which was doing a mavericks 10.9.1 but i cant get it to work in my favor. My friend has a mac book that he will let me use to get a bootloader for my USB to get a hackintosh ? my notebook specs are: AMD A8-4500M APU with Radeon HD Graphics 1.9 GHz with 4GB of Ram Windows 8.1 64 bit (doubt that's neccessary but i seen people on windows 7) ? PLEASE REPLY AND HELP ME

  7. Hi there! ? I'm trying to make a Hackintosh from my notebook. So far, I have launched N{censored} Mavericks, but I haven't updated it yet to the latest version (10.9.5, I think). With GE=Yes and IntelCapriFB=3, my HD4000 works.? ? CPU: i7-3630QM IGPU: Intel HD4000 (Capri) GPU: Radeon HD7670M 2GB Chipset: Intel HM76 (Chief River) RAM: 8GB LAN: Realtek RTL8168/8111 Gigabit-LAN (10/100/1000MBit)? WLAN: Atheros AR9485WB-EG Wireless Network Adapter (b\g\n) WLAN2: TP-Link TL-WN725N V2 (working) BT: 4.0 Bluetooth? ? What's not working: Bluetooth (system shows it as Enabled, but I can't even find my Hackintosh with my phone);Power Management (not using AICPUPM nor NullCPUPM);Internal WiFi (but I'm pretty sure it won't work, so I'm using TP-Link);Discrete GPU (AFAIK my BIOS is locked, so I can't turn off IGPU; if I'm wrong - tell me more about it);Function keys (kind of; when I turn the volume up with Fn keys, it's going up, but even when I stop pressing the keys, it constantly volumes up);Display brightness (I don't even have a brightness bar in System Preferences);Sleep (instant wake up, keyboard and touchpad not working, random reboot);Webcam (I mean - it's working, but it's very dark; need some control panel to increase brightness and contrast);? My boot log: PasteBin ?

  9. Good night to all people! Today I am posting because I have a great little problem. Anyway, my laptop is a SAMSUNG NP300E5C-S0AES and well, I'm having difficulties with the kext and others.? ? To begin with I had to get a copy of maverick U{censored} to install. Well the installation was a success. But now comes the problem, after installing back to start with usb boot, well installed with MB{censored}, excellent pack but I guess there will be better ... So what happens to be what comes next, do not work for me or webcam, or wifi or audio. My pc looks like this: # NP300E5C-A07US http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/HCL_10.9.3/Portables? ? But with DCPI Manager've looked some stuff and the driver I need is the ar9485 wifi and audio driver atheros but the voodoo 2.8.4 to install this in MB{censored} does not install when I installed and no sound .. no I have no idea how I can comfigurar this.? ? And for the webcam I have no idea which driver uses when N{censored} probe the distribution of work but ... if I prefer an official hackintosh. So I installed maverick but as usual because they do nothing xD navigate.? ? Then wanted to know what I can do? and if there are kext and others to use my hackintosh. The graphics card is a nvidia laptop. And then I will leave the pc specs if you need them.? ? features:? ? Intel i5 3210m 2.5ghz? ? 4Gb ram? ? Nvidia geforce gt620m

    Samsung NP300E5C-S0AES

    Good afternoon everyone, my problem is quite curious, I have recently bought my laptop a few months and make a samsung resulting np300e5c-s0aes that came with windows 8 wanted.? ? Well I got into N{censored} page as their distros are very effective and take me pleasantly surprised. Turns out I spent the maverick image of N{censored} dmg to usb, and usb've tried it on my desktop computer has amd processor and another laptop. It is going on all included in the amd ie make the boot without any problem. But now I get to start the new samsung and it do not you boot. I formatted the pendrive twenty times and I used win32diskimager usbit and nothing. I do not get to start the distro install. I tried to do it from the iB{censored} and as I started with the log where I've recorded until the pc shuts down and logs that give, go stopping the video to view the logs. This is the video:?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKciIvYUWsQ ? No problem if that will maybe be corrupt dmg down, not sure if it's confguration bios, and if neither the maverick will not hold and I have to install mountain lion? you who believe that I should do? ? Then I show the page where are the features of my pc, but translate this in Spanish because they are components be easy. Sorry if I express a little bad English I'm Spanish ? The page:?http://portatiles.findthebest.es/l/1912/Samsung-NP300E5C-S0AES
  11. OK I decided to start a new thread about this issue and especially this laptop. My laptop is the Samsung Serie 5 532U3C A01FR, one of the last models released in France. SIW in windows says this about its specifications : MotherBoard - NP532U3C-A01FR FAB1 P01ABH Proc. Core i3 2365M 1.4GHZ Graphic. Intel HD3000 (8086) Controller AHCI (?) - Intel 7 SATA AHCI Controller There's no optical drive - I replaced the HDD by a Samsung 840 250G SSD In BIOS, the AHCI mode is Enabled - The Secure boot is disabled and OS Mode is set on CSM OS (I tried also with CSM & UEFI and UEFI modes) I already successfully installed Lion 10.7.5 on this laptop (from iATKOS L2), in a dual-boot with Windows 8. The SSD is partitionned with two partition - one hfs for Lion / one ntfs for windows. I had to choose MBR because GUID prevents me to restore my Acronis True Image on my Windows partition. Also, my Lion system works pretty well, except the HD3000 is not completely recognized (no acceleration) and have no microphone support. I decided recently to upgrade directly to 10.8.2. The classic upgrade is impossible since my disk is MBR, ML would need a GUID disk to make working the upgrade. I tried so many different options - U{censored}, the new Chris111's installer (from hackmymac), and recently, iATKOS ML2. Unfortunately, I encountered a really boring issue. After booting on USB by typing F10, I choose the USB disk on Chimera/Chameleon bootscreen. And just right few second after, my USB stick will light off, stop working, the spinner loading starts on the apple logo. Finally, it stucks here with a crossed circle. In verbose mode, it stucks on different place (depends of the ton of test I did) and display the "Still waiting for root device". I tried on my three usb ports (one 3.0, two 2.0) with two different USB Sticks (new - one Corsair 3.0 - one Sandisk Cruzer 2.0) With iATKOS ML2, it stucks on Waiting on <dict... IOProviderClass.... No interval found for . Using 8000000 Still waiting for root device. I tried differents flags (sometimes combined) as npci=0x2000 npci=0x3000 GraphicsEnabler=No UseKernelCache=No USBBusFix=Yes -x -f -v With iATKOS, the only flag which made a difference was UseKernelCache=No. It occured a really loud beep sound during verbose log printing which made me turn off the laptop (but the USB stick sttoped working as usually). I just don't know what can I do next and so decided to looking for a support here, maybe some experiences from this serie 5 users. Hopefully, we'll solve this problem and make this thread a ressource for future guys who'll hack this laptop. Last thing, which'll be usefull on whatever version of OSX. My laptop battery wear seems to increase since I use OSX on it. (it's at 7% - I bought this laptop one month ago). How can I save my battery life with an hackintosh. Is there something to do. I have some other questions about the laptop, but I'll ask them later - It's important to succeed the installation of ML before. Don't hesitate to ask me more informations if I've forgot something. Thanks for reading, and helping and sorry if my english is a little bit precarious.

    [GUIDE] Samsung RV511-A01

    if anyone can help with the QE/CI, WiFi and a proper dsdt file, please comment on how to fix, I am pretty sure there are other things that need fixing, I will update this thread. So this is my work in progress, I hope people will find this helpful and can contribute in to turning this PC laptop in to full functioning Mac laptop on the hackintosh side. What I have done is split the hardrive in to 5 partitions on a GUID partition scheme: Mountain Lion 65 GB Mac OS Extended (Journaled) Windows 8 65 GB MS-DOS (FAT) turned to NTFS during windows install Windows 7 130 GB MS-DOS (FAT) turned to NTFS during windows install CCC BU 35 GB Mac OS Extended (Journaled) MEDIA 205 GB MS-DOS (FAT) <<- currently inaccessible on windows side (working on a fix) I want to use this to store music, movies, pictures, docs, etc. and share between partitions You will need access to a Mac or already running Hackintosh. 01 So to start, create a myHack bootable USB drive using an 8 gig USB drive, follow this guide to create disk: myHack Guide | myHack 02 After USB drive is complete, go in to S/L/E and remove AppleIntelHDGraphics kexts (back them up somewhere) from the USB drive or you won't get past the apple and spinning wheel when booting to install You will need a USB Keyboard and Mouse once the computer boots on to OSX for the first time. 03 Boot computer with the myHack USB in USB port, hold down F2 to go in to BIOS, in BIOS go to Advanced tab, set AHCI to manual/enabled, go down to USB Wake and enable. Go to Boot tab select the USB drive. Exit and Save changes. 04 When booting click on any key to select the USB key and type these commands -f GraphicsEnabler=No busratio=19 press enter 05 You will be greeted with the OSX Install screen, continue and select Disk Utility from the menu, select the hardrive and partition to your needs, click on options at the bottom and select GUID partition scheme, apply. When done, exit Disk Utility and continue to install follow the prompts, OSX will now install on selected partition, after install is complete, set up the OS configs and what not. Feel free to use my Extra folder, you will probably need to edit the org.chameleon.Boot.plist, I've included Chameleon Wizard to help edit this and smbios.plist. I have my primary OS booting Windows 8 from partition "hd (0,3)", included in my extra folder is a dsdt file, but I am unsure of how well done it was made, with your help I hope to get this thing roaring. 06 install Chiamara which can be found at {censored}osx86 forum optionally you could install Chameleon Bootloader that is included on the MyHack USB, I went the Chiamara way, it worked out best for me. Post Install Using Kext Wizard Install all kexts listed below to S/L/E: AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kext ElliottForceLegacyRTC.kext EvOreboot.kext fakesmc.kext NullCPUPowerManagement.kext Battery AppleACPIPlatform.kext VoodooBattery.kext Trackpad AppleACPIPS2Nub.kext ApplePS2Controller.kext Place Library/Preference Panes Trackpad.prefPane Under the Maintenance tab of Kext Wizard, select S/L/E and fix permissions. After that's done, you can reboot your machine. If you run in to any problems remember that the myHack usb drive will always save you, it is also good practice to create a CCC BU (Carbon Copy Back Up) of a good working state. Good luck! http://www.mediafire.com/?s0y9dkpy0h11ff4

Which bootloader? Thanks a lot for any help.
  19. After hours, days and weeks of Trials and Errors! I was able to Install a clean copy OS X 10.7.2 Just Follow This Steps: 1. First of you need a good copy of iATKOS L2 in DVD or USB (recommended) Download iATKOS DMG Here [mod edit]Please no illegal links Google it Burn or Restore DMG file to DVD or USB If DVD is not working or you are experiencing errors Try this combinations (busratio=20 cpus=1 -v -x GraphicsEnabler=No) This solve most of my errors 2. If you pass the boot problem the WELCOME Screen in many languages will appear. 3. Open Disk Utility and Partition or Format (Mac OS Extended Journaled)the drive you want to use for OSX 4. In the Installation window you will see CUSTOMIZE Button a chameleon boot options don't forget to UNCHECK Graphics Enabler CHECK Built-in Ethernet CHECK USB CHECK Audio (VoodooHDA v2.1) CHECK PS/2 CHECK Laptop Battery This is all working settings I use you can try others but I recommend this. 5. PRESS "OK" Then "INSTALL" Wait 'til Installation finish or it will automatically restart. 6. REMOVE DVD or USB Installers 7. If you follow this tutorial using Samsung R440 you will see a log in screen and working OSX Hackintosh. ENJOY! TO ENABLE QE/CI use kext found in here. Tested to work in ATI Mobility 5470 for Samsung R440 NOTE: if you forgot to uncheck Graphics Enabler you will END in a White or Black Screen, You need to Restart PC and use (GraphicsEnabler=No) before boot. Most of the Laptop Function will work Except Wireless Lan and Mic. Still working on MIC kext but WIFI (VEN/DEV 14E4 4727 ) is not possible I check every possible solution

    Installing iATKOS L2 on SAMSUNG RF711

    Hey everyone, I've previously installed iAtkos L2 on my Acer Aspire 5742 with almost complete success, and I would like to do the same for my new laptop, a Samsung RF711. The reason I upgraded was to get working graphics on iAtkos. From previous problems, the easiest way to install mac is to look for other users with the same laptop, however I have been unable to find a Samsung RF711 GOOD thread with complete installation run-through. So, I'm making one here. Hopefully, anyone with the same laptop or similar problems will be able to follow through this thread and be able to have a working hackintosh. Laptop Specs: Intel core i7 2670M 2.2GHz Quad core (Comes with Intel HD3000 Graphics) 8GB RAM 1TB HardDrive NVIDIA GT540M 2GB Graphics 17.3" Screen Blueray Disc Drive 2 USB3 ports Broadcom 802.11n Realtech HD Audio (If I've missed any specs please message and I'll edit) Installing Method: So far I have installed iAtkos on my samsung 3 times, and I have just installed it for a 4th time. The iAtkos L2 disk boots fine, and I go into Utilities and select an already set-up 100GB partition (Logical) for my mac. I erase the partition to be Mac Formatted. I select the disk to install to, and my custom settings for iAtkos are: Chameleon 2.1 Built-in Ethernet Original apple boot logo Fake SMC Disabler RTC EvOreboot VoodooHDA v2.1 USB3 PS/2 Laptop battery AHCI SATA The installation takes a while, but is slow. After installation, I booted with the flags: maxmem=4096 graphicsenabler=no -v And it output: Can anyone help? I'm almost certain its to do with my graphics... I do have some other problems. :/ 1) After my first iAtkos install, my windows did not work - it gave a missing MBR error, and my mac chameleon bootloader didnt work - my laptop just gave a boot0: error_ and stopped. I needed windows, so I used a windows repair disk to repair my windows. This succeeded, however now, when turned on, my laptop showed a quick 'boot0:done' and booted windows. From this you can see I have been unable to use chameleon. CAN ANYONE HELP? 2) I was able to boot into my mac using the iAtkos L2 CD, however I came up with a common problem. The mac loads, including the sound. I can hear the welcome music in the background (My mic also seems to be turned on very loud, which is rather irritating - possible to fix this somehow?), but the screen doesn't load. It shows the mac booting screen, with the logo and the spinning wheel, and then the wheel stops (and then the sound plays). I'm almost certain this is a problem with my graphics cards (I have 2, and the mac is getting confuzeled). So, to try and fix this, I installed Transmac on my windows, deleted ALL of the graphics kexts except the intelhd3000 ones and 3 others (AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext, AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext and AppleIntelSNBVA.bundle). After, the mac booted same as usual, except instead of stopping the spinning indicator and playing music, it went to a black screen and played music (after loading the apple boot screen with a MOVING indicator). Kinda stuck here... I thought I might of removed a needed kext (I did back them all up), so I went to change it back in windows - however it said that the System folder (in the mac) was corrupted , and the iAtkos boot CD no longer recognised my mac :O :/ This has led me to where I am now, which is installing for the 4th time. All help is greatly appreciated!
  21. Hello This is my first post and I found this forum incredibly helpful. I am currently working on an external hard drive that has Snow Leopard installed on it that works on most of the computers in my home. I currently have all of the Intel computers booting off the Hard Drive (Easy enough) But I'm having trouble getting it to boot off the AMD laptop. I am booting off Chameleon and using -v to see what the problem is and this is the error ATI Card posted, reading VBIOS from legacy space Frame buffer set to device's default: Nr of ports set to frame buffer's default: 0 It doesn't go any further. Just stops there. Help would be appreciated thanks! One of the main problems I'm running into is my computers motherboard is custom built by Samsung (305v4a/305v4a) so I'm not sure what Kexts to use because of compatibility. P.S My hardware specs are in my signature.
  22. Instalei o Snow Leopard e tenho esse problema desde sempre. Nunca consegui gravar DVDs por que diz que ouve um erro ao tentar gravar. Ele le DVDs abre e fecha normalmente e consigo copiar arquivos de DVDs mas gravar que é o que deveria fazer não faz. Como posso tentar resolver isso?
