can you please buy me the battle pass lol (1 year ago)
I recommend using http://amd-osx.com kernels, I've never failed with them. Although you have to create an account to download just like tonymacx86 and osx86.net . Although with the amd-osx mavericks kernel you have to also copy the Systems.kext to System/Library/Extensions/ DON'T replace the extensions folder with the provided one. Just insert the extra next. I think you have to recreate the prelinkedkernel, or that's just El Capitan and above. Not sure.

jcoronaz26t (3 years ago)
Please help me. I've followed your video to the last detail and I can't get past this issue. I really want this to work for me since I want to have a vanilla installation like you show here. These are my specs: AMD 8370, ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2, GTX 970, and Samsung 850 Pro 512GB I'm stuck. I can't get to the white Apple installation screen. I enter the boot flags you mention in the video: GraphicsEnabler=No, npci=0x3000, and -v It goes into verbose mode and never reaches the white Apple installation screen with the black mouse cursor. It says that AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement has some sort of time out issue. I tried deleting AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext and AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementClient.kext from the USB installer and this still didn't work. Please help, I want this to work. Thank you for any help you can provide.

Hey you guys, I really need some help please. I'm trying to run Mavericks on an AMD A4-500 processor with 1.5 GHz (with Windows 8.1), and I'm using Niresh Max OS X Mavericks on a bootable USB. Installation was going great until I get to the boot menu. I try typing in several different boot flags like /: amd, amd -v, amd -v-x ,etc. but then each time it goes to a kernel panic and says something about EFI not supported. I have no idea what this means or what to do. Any help would be appreciated.

You got any ideas how to fix this?

So I can access the boot loader but no matter what I do I can't seem to get it to boot into the flash drive. I hit enter and it loads got a second and then reboots the system and that's it.

TeamTech (4 years ago)
Question, My os x will not boot. In verbose mode, the boot loader loads but when it tries to transition into the actual verbose mode of os x the computer restarts and im not sure why. I'm using this tutorial even though i have an intel proccessor because it is an intel core i7 4790k which is unsupported. The rest of my specs are two nvida geforce gtx 970's and an msi gaming 5 z97 motherboard. Niresh worked but was laggy so I thought I would use the vanillla version. Does anybody have an answer to my question?

Anarchy870 (4 years ago)
First off I want to apologize if i sound like a noob but for all intensive purposes i am :/ lol this is my first attempt at building a hackintosh let alone a computer on my own. My setup can be found here http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Anarchy870/saved/Yr8Zxr but if instead you'd rather see it listed here:  CPU - AMD FX 8320 Motherboard - MSI 970A-G43 ATX AM3+ Memory - Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 GPU - Asus GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB Memory - Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB 2.5" SSD                Seagate Barracuda 1TB                Seagate 500 GB (Just bought to put OS X on) So okay now that that's out of the way I have been running windows on my home built PC for several months now but i need my mac OS since my mac laptop is dying so i want to add it. I had gone and purchased a new hard drive specifically for it and attempted to follow your guide. I followed it to a T up to the point of typing the boot flags and after hitting enter it goes to the verbose and does its thing for a while and then all of a sudden goes black. I try it without the flags and I get the grey apple screen and for each of them it does nothing further. I'm not sure where to go from here as I said this is my first attempt.  Any help at all from you or anyone would be greatly appreciated.
Anarchy870 (4 years ago)
the same flags you used in the video, i even tried without the flags and different combinations of those flags.
OSXEnside (4 years ago)
You'll have to add more flags probably. Which ones are you booting with right now?
Duffel Bag Full of Tech (4 years ago)
Hi guys I'm having a big problem and it is very frustrating. After I type in all the boot flags showed in the video, it preloads the installer and then immediately goes to a blank screen. If I don't use verbose mode it goes to the apple logo but no spinning wheel and it just stays. I have tried everything I can, help would be appreciated!

Duffel Bag Full of Tech (3 years ago)
@CIH EDM If you are talking about the not-booting-after-BIOS-update issue, that was on Intel. I never got OS X working on AMD. I only got as far as I did when I first posted this comment. Sorry dude! You might want to wait for the Yosemite guide on this channel that is coming up.

Yep, that's exactly what I had. What AMD processor were you using? I'm searching for an alternative way as I type this, if I find anything I'll tell you

When I try to boot my computer shuts off help?
Cynigo (4 years ago)
So.. I successfully installed mavericks and everything is running fine but I accidentally deleted my C: , also I can't get any bootloader to work I always have to boot from my USB. Do I just have to reinstall windows on my unallocated space or do I have to pay attention to something?
OSXEnside (4 years ago)
@Exo. As far as a program like bootcamp I don't think so- You can install Windows again absolutely however when doing so it may force the setup to go back to the Windows MBR, but since you can't really get a bootloader to work on your OS that's not an issue because you're running the bootloader from your USB. I would try a dedicated bootloader package

Also, is there a way I can install it like bootcamp so I can simply switch between os x and windows in one click?
