  1. Hello, thanks for reading. My USB Wi-Fi adapter (Ralink RT5370) has worked fine since I installed 10.9 (Now updated to 10.9.5)... Last night I left my pc on, and this morning I woke up to having no internet? I don't know what it wrong with it. I disconnected and connected and it turn on for like 5 seconds, no even allowed a website to load, and when is not working I press the rescan button (to scan for routers) and it won't find any. I tried rebooting the computer (which makes it work for no more than 10 seconds)... Reinstalling drivers and everything... Anyone might know what's wrong with it? (There's a picture). Thanks, once again. EDIT: After doing a reinstall once again, it now stays kind of on, but I still have no internet. EDIT 2: The problem appears to be in the adapter since I had the same issue using Windows OS. It's what I should have done in the first place.
  2. Your computer is compatible. Follow any guide on how to achieve this, because there are many guides out there and it wouldn't make sense to re-write a guide here. You might find tutorials here, but I used one from Macbreaker com... Here's the link; http://macbreaker com/2014/01/install-osx-mavericks-on-pc-with-niresh.html (Change the space with a dot). You might need to use cpus=1 to boot at first.
  3. Hello, thanks for your comment! I actually saw a tutorial that Niresh did on how to do this (fix the grey/black screen) through the boot options, it also backup all these kexts that has to do with graphics. The thing is, that method only worked once for me, so, instead of doing that again I logged into windows and deleted the kexts that were backed up with Niresh's method, in a folder named "Graphics-kext", inside of the backup folder. Also, inside the graphics' folder, there were three folders, ATI, Intel and Nvidia. So, since Niresh's method only worked once (at least for me), I manually deleted the kexts that were moved from the extensions folder to the backup folder, because, whenever I installed these kexts, my computer would produce a grey screen and apparently when I updated to 10.9.5, these kexts where reinstalled, so I had to once again boot into windows and manually delete these files. My laptop has been working fine without any of these kexts, and, I assume it will for other 4077cl's owners. Could you please post the details of the kext they should NOT delete so I can update the guide. Also, I don't know what your method is to remove these files, but I know one but it involves writing all the names of the kext so it's just easier to boot into windows and just plain delete them. @Deepak
  4. Well, if you followed the steps properly and it did not help you, just boot into another os x, access you mac os x drive and in System/Library/Extensions delete the .kext you installed... If you boot into windows, you'll have to download a software to access you HDD. I used MacDrive free trial Alternatively, if don't have another OS to boot in. Make a bootable USB or DVD with Niresh 10.9 and in the intalletion windows, after selecting you language, go to the Terminal windows, and type the following command: mv /Volumes/NameOfYour Drive/System/Library/Extensions/nameofyourkext.kext /Volumes/NameOfYour Drive/System/Library/Extensions_bad After that, you will be able to see your desktop. If you don't find something else on how to use your GPU, you might need to get another one. Good luck.
  5. Hello, @ . I did some research on your topic and I actually found a guide... I am not sure if it works because I do not have that GPU myself, but you could try it and get back to us here. http://forum netkas org/index.php?topic=5484.0 replace the spaces with dots "." for the link to work.
  6. There's a button that says Mark as Solved. Click it. additionally, enter into full edit mode and add [solved] to the beginning of your title so other users with the same problem can solve it. Good luck with the rest of your hackintosh.
  7. Hello, fellows. Today I am going to show you how to (or how I) install Mavericks 10.9.5 on a HP Pavilion DV7 4077cl... Here are the specifications (This could work for another HP Pavilion with similar specs): Motherboard: Portwell (Not much details about it, since anyways I didn't use DSDT and it's working great). Processor: Intel Core i3 350M L3: 3M 2.26GHz (Dual-Core with multithread) RAM: 8GB (Upgraded from 4GB, which should be totally fine) Graphics: This HP has two Graphic cards. The one integrated in the processor (Intel HD Graphics, the one I'm using with my hackintosh, working 100%), and ATI Mobility Radeon 5470 (Actually some people claim it works full. I have not tested it myself, since my BIOS has lack of options and I can't choose whether to disable the integrated graphics or not). Wi-Fi: Not worth talking about. It does not work. Luckily for me, I had a USB Wi-Fi card that I had bought in eBay for someone, which never picked it up, so I am using it and works perfect. The USB is Ralink RT5370 (Around 7 bucks ). NOTE: I do not give credit to myself for anything here. All the credits go to Niresh, and the authors/developers of all the guides/softwares that I refer to through the process. this is just showing you the steps on how to do it to make it easier and to make almost 24 hours of research into just 1 hour or 2... With this info we should be ready to start. What we will need: - HP Pavilion DV7 4077cl (Or very similar), with windows already installed. - Download the Niresh Mavericks 10.9 DMG File (You can find it in this website). - At least a 6GB USB Flash drive. - Multibeast (last version for Mavericks). - Optional - Enough Hard Drive Space to Install Mevericks (10GB is enough, but I recommend at least 20GB). Note: If there's anything you can't find just google it with it's proper name. I am not giving you any outside links in case it's not allowed in this forums, but I will provide you the proper information you need to find it. STEPS: 1. Write the DMG to the Flash Drive. As the title of the step states, we need to write the installation file into the flash drive. For that we will need to download Win32 Disk Imager. Just google the name and you'll eventually find it. Once you have downloaded and installed it, you open it and it have a super easy interface. Select your DMG file and select "Write". Once it finished writing, we're good to go. 2. Actually begin the installation. Note: I am assuming that you have the hard drive ready for installation. You have chose your partition in your disk, or you have an extra Hard drive. If your extra Hard Drive is 1TB+, you'll need to partition it. Mavericks won't install on Hard Drives larger than 1TB. Note 2: This step here would require some tweaking to do in the Bios, which lacks a lot of options. Luckily for us, these options are exactly as they need to be already, so there's nothing we need to do in the Bios. IMPORTANT: It is recommended that through this step, any extra USB and unneeded devices are disconnected from your computer. It reduces the chances of errors through installation. (It's fine if you're using a USB mouse). Let's begin the installation. The first thing we need to do is reboot our computer, with the USB connected. When the HP Logo appears, quickly press the 'esc' key. You'll be redirected to a black screen with some options. Here, you should press the 'F9' key, which is the boot options. Afterwards, you should see the name of your flash drive in these options, select it. After you have successfully done the selection, you'll be prompted to the Niresh boot screen. Here you'll have to write the following boot flag "cpus=1", without the quotes, then press enter. You should successfully see the spinning wheel and your installation boot fine. IMPORTANT: It is probable to you will see a distorted black screen with sort of white dots after it boots, that is totally normal, just wait and it will show you into the Language selection screen. After you have selected your preferred language, you'll see that here you'll have to select the Hard Drive you want to install Mavericks in. In the tabs (up), click on Utilities-> Disk Utilities... In there you should see all your hard drives. Select the partition in which you'd like to install. After that, go to the Erase tab (Inside disk utilities), and choose the format MAC OS Extended (Journaled), give a name to your drive, click erase. Done! After that, close the disk utilities and select the partition you just formatted. Normally here you'd click customize, to select the kext or drivers you'd like to install. I sort of skipped this through my installation (Didn't pay much attention). But you have! So, once you've selected your drive click customize. In this screen, deselect everything that has to do with graphics, close, and begin the installation. Congratulations! You have successfully installed Mavericks 10.9 on your computer... 3. Fix a grey screen to be able to boot (Important). After you're done with the installation, boot into windows. How do you do that you ask? Once you reboot, you will see a bar going down. (This is called the Chamaleon boot loader). Press any key before it finishes, and select the Drive where you have Windows installed. After you have successfully booted into windows, you'll need to access you Mac OS X partition. Windows normally won't allow that, but there are some softwares that will do the job. I used MacDrive (Google it and you'll find it). Install it, probably 5 days trial, like I did. Don't worry, 5 days is more than enough for what we'll do with it. Go to your PC, where your Drives are, in Windows. You'll see your Mac OS X Partition there. Access it. Go to System/Library/Extensions, once you're there, you'll see many folders with .kext, .bundle. and .plugin extensions. You'll need to delete the following: AppleIntelFramebufferAzul.kext AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext AppleIntelHD3xxx .kext AppleIntelHD3xxx .bundle AppleIntelHD4xxx .kext AppleIntelHD4xxx .bundle AppleIntelHD5xxx .kext AppleIntelHD5xxx .bundle AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext AppleIntelHDGraphicsGD.plugin AppleIntelHDGraphicsGLDriver.bundle AppleIntelHDGraphicsVADriver.bundle AppleIntelHSWVA.bundle AppleIntelIVBVA.bundle AppleIntelLpssDmac.kext AppleIntelLpssGspi.kext AppleIntelLpssSpiController.kext AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext AppleIntelSNBVA.bundle Also, where x is any number from 1-9; AMDxxxxController.kext AMDFrameBuffer.kext AMDRadeonVADriver.bundle AMDRadeonXxxxx.kext and .bundle AMDSupport.kext ATIRadeonXxxxx.kext .plugin .bundle Also, where * is anything (a-z, 1-9); GeForce.kext GeForce*.kext .bundle .plugin This is a good chance to download anything you need, since you MAC OS x does not have internet, yet. You could download your USB's Wi-Fi Driver (For MAC) if you have one. 4. Setup you hackintosh. Here we reboot again. We will still have to press a key when the bar is going down in the boot loader, since we will still need to use the boot flag "cpus=1". Once we have successfully booted, we will now be prompted to the setup screen. Set up your machine, and, where you need to set up you internet, select that your machine does not use internet, or, if you will use an ethernet connection, just connect it and have internet. Once you're done, You'll see notifications saying that Niresh is installing permissions and drivers... Let it finish. At this point, you should get internet, either by using Ethernet or a USB Wi-Fi. *If needed, you use Multibeast here to install extra kext, although, is not necessary for us.* 5. Fixing the cpus=1. Now, we need to get rid of the cpus=1 flag, since it only allows your hackintosh to use 1 core and and it's annoying. Google; Lapic Kernel Patch. Install it and we're good to go. 6. Enabling Graphics Accelerator. For this, google "Intel HD Graphics", and click the link that says [GUIDE] 1st Generation Intel HD Graphics QE/CI... Note: You follow that guide as you are using the LVDS connector and it will work. The frame buffer I chose was; DualLink/Normal/LCD+VGA/LW1. You can also follow the extras to enable brightness. 7. Update to 10.9.5 By this point, you should have everything working near perfection, so it's time to update to 10.9.5. And for that I will refer you to this guide from this very same forums; https://www.maconpc.com/topic/4391-msi-z87-g45-gaming-and-how-i-did-to-make-it-work-with-mac-os-x-and-update-it-to-1095/ NOTE: This is the guide I used to upgrade to 10.9.5. So far, so good. Just ignore the flags he's using to boot. Thankfully we don't need any flags to boot anymore. NOTE 2: If after the upgrade you notice you can't boot due to a gray distorted screen, follow the step No. 3 of this tutorial, and you should boot normal again. NOTE 3: If what it says in the note 2 happened, you'll need to install the kext from the guide on how to enable full graphics (step 6), again. But this time install the 10.9 kext and, afterwards, install the 10.9.5 kext of that guide. NOTE 4: If you have two dysfunctional USB ports after the update or installation of some kexts, delete AppleHPET.kext from /System/Library/Extensions. (I'm not the author of this fix either). 8. Thank the authors that made this possible!! Niresh & others! 9. Enjoy you hackintosh! If I forgot anything, you have questions, just let me know and I will see how I can help.
  8. After a whole day of research, I finally found the solution!! I applied the Lapic kernel patch and it worked!! I am now able to boot without the cpus=1 flag! Thanks!
  9. What happened to me was this: So I have two GPU, integrated in the processor, and a dedicated one (Actually you can only use one since there's no switchable graphics to my understanding)... So, The default GPU kext that the installation provided didn't fit my GPU so I got a grey screen (same situation as black, gnu problems). What I had to do is the following... I boot into windows and installed MacDrive (A software to access Mac OS X HDD from windows). This software let me write into the disk. So, I went into the HDD, /System/Library/Extensions, and deleted all the kexts that were causing the problem, afterwards, I boot into Mac OS X, installed the right kext for my GPU and now it's working 100% fine. It is a possibility that your GPU is dead. Maybe you could try to use it in another system or OS. If it doesn't work, there it's probably dead, if it does work, then it's a drivers problem and you'll just have to delete the kexts. Good Luck!
  10. I couldn't tell. What I can tell you is to try yourself, and maybe post a guide later if you're successful with it. If you couldn't find anything in google about it is because people have not tried much. My motherboard is a port well, weirdest mb ever and I actually have my hackintosh working at least in a 90%... When I get it to work full I will post a guide for my HP Pavilion laptop. Besides, if mine worked, yours has a good chance of working, this is a trial and error thing. just go with it and good luck! @watts220
  11. Hola, Ale. Primero, Hiciste una instalación modificada de tus drivers, o los dejaste como están por defecto (Justo antes de darle a instalar)? Si fue así, puede que hallan kext causandote ese problema. Si puedes identificar los kext que te causan el problema, y tienes un Dual-Boot, es decir, puedes botear con Windows también, entonces vas a hacer lo siguiente: Vas a entrar en tu sistema de windows, ya sea Windows 7 u 8... Vas a descargar una programa que se llama MacDrive (Prueba de 5 días). Este te permitirá entrar a tu disco duro de Mac OS x desde tu sistema operativo de Windows. Luego que lo instales y puedas acceder, vas a entrar a tu disco duro de Mac. Entras a las carpetas /System/Library/Extensions... Dentro veras todos los kext que tiene instado tu hackintosh (apareceran como carpetas desde windows). Vas a borrar los kext que te causan el problema y bootea desde mac a ver si pasas la configuración. En casa de que no halla sido así y lo dejaste por defecto, vuelve a instalar y cuando selecciones el disco duro donde vas a instalar, selecciona la opción de modificar (No se como dice exactamente en español, en ingles dice Customize), y seleccionas los drivers que crean que te funcionaran, si no estas seguro, te recomiendo que los quites todos e instales después de la configuración con Multibeast. Vuelve con tus resultados.
  12. @ I did the rollback on the kext with Multibeast 5.2.1 and I still wasn't able to boot without the cpus=1. However, I boot in Verbose mode and now I get a different output. Here's what it looks like: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mw3rkqigk4h5590/Photo%20Oct%2002%2C%2012%2026%2044%20PM.jpg?dl=0 Any ideas?
  13. Hello, hackintoshers. It was just a day ago that I got my hackintosh up and running almost 100% perfect. The only three things missing (that I am aware of) is that I can't change my brightness (I will fix that later), I can't use HDMI (Totally fine with that) and, what made me write this post, I am only able to boot my system using 1 core of my Dual-Core processor, aka; cpus=1... The reason that I installed this hackintosh is to program in Xcode and that, and use some other apps that demand CPU power, which I cannot achieve with only 1 core... My details are; HP Pavilion DV7 4077cl (Once I fix this I will post a full guide on how I reached 10.9.5 with niresh and make it work almost to perfection, and will give credit to everyone that helped me achieve it) 8gb of Ram perfectly working Integrated Intel HD Graphics (100% Working thanks to a guide I saw...) Intel Core i3 350M 2.26Ghz... -> Arrandale in early 2010. Dual-Core with multithread (2 Physical cores and 2 Virtual ones) So, is the anything I could do to fix this? (I posted a picture of the kernel panic I get in verbose if I don't use cpus=1) If you need extra information let me know. Thanks, all of you. Pic: https://www.dropbox.com/s/lxoat99oxua77yb/IMG_7617.JPG?dl=0 EDIT: I tried disabling the Intel Virtualization Technology and boot with dart=0... I also tried the Voodo kext for 4 cores but mine has two, so I guess that's why it didn't work. SOLUTION: Apply Lapic Kernel Patch.
  14. I will refer you to the post that I did to achieve this... Notice that you will have to adapt the boot flags to your system; https://www.maconpc.com/topic/4391-msi-z87-g45-gaming-and-how-i-did-to-make-it-work-with-mac-os-x-and-update-it-to-1095/ All the credit goes to the author of this post.
