Hackintosh (limit images to 640pixels wide)

  • @imacRuel1

    I suggest po na bumili ka ng extra hard drive, kahit na 80gb lang for testing. That's what I always do :) .. Pero from what I see on your specs.
    It is very compatible. I'll gladly upgrade or make hackintosh for you sir for free but I'm from a province area po. :( ..

    I can guide you step by step sir if you want.

    And Yes you can have Multiple OS side by side.

    I hired someone to install me a hack. Pero hindi ko rin nagamit dahil mabagal at wala ako wifi dongle. Which I was very disappointed. Kasi sa dongle palang dapat part na ng service na inform un sakin. nag assume siya agad na LAN gamit ko

    Anyways ito specs ko
    i5 3470
    Asus P8Z77-M
    1tb HDD
    r9 280x

    Nag pa install ako ng yosemite.

    kaso kinalabasan e mabagal nga. sinasabi niya mag SSD nalang ako. So ok! dapat sinabi na niya in the first place.
    pangalawa, e ung wifi nga.

    So in the end, hindi ko nagamit. Bumili pa nga ako ng wifi dongle na supposedly mac compatible. Kaso wala hanggang mavericks lang pala ang drivers
    total of P2,700 ang nagastos ko para sa wala

    Nainis ako. Ngayon nag upgrade na ko ng SSD at nag switch ako to nvidia. kaso iniisip ko kung iinstallan ko pa ulit. Kasi nga hindi ako naniniwala na HDD ung may kasalanan kung mabagal ung hack.

    I'm sorry to hear about your situation. That's why I don't charge when I do a hack to my friend or to any stranger/acquaintances, merienda lang ok na saken. Experience lang talaga habol ko as because installing a hack(mac) os takes risk because of unknown hardware it is being installed to. Also modifications to kext(drivers) takes some time and patience to understand. All in all once matapos lahat may feeling of satisfaction ako pagktapos, parang hobby na rin kse.

    Also the case where mabagal, may mali lang cguro sa pag.install nya na hindi pa nya na.iintindihan.. (Rebuild Kext Cache + Rebuild Permission should probably fix it). I've been hacking since snow leopard, and all I have to say is, Mas Easier ngayon compared dati kse nag mature na yung drivers and andaming contributors sa driver source code ng hackintosh

  • I have a spare laptop, an ASUS K52JR. Ok kaya ito installan ng Hackintosh? If so what page ang dapat ko icheck para sa lahat ng dapat ko idownload.
  • Hello,

    I have a Mid-2009 MacBook Pro na may sira ang fan. I can still use it, pero super ingay niya. Hirap maghanap ng original replacement. Nag order na ako and it's supposed to be the right one, pero mas malala pa 'yung na order ko.

    I am thinking of backing up OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 to TimeMachine, get a new SSD for my desktop, then Hackintosh it (which I've done in the past). Once 'Hackintoshed', pede ko ba i-restore 'yung backup ko from TimeMachine to my desktop?
  • @siege_8

    What are the specs of your ASUS K52JR.


    Yes it can be done. I have done it multiple times but on "compatible PC hardware ".. You can also clone it via Carbon copy Cloner. But even so with both these methods, I cannot guarantee it will work perfectly on yours.

    Just make sure you have an enclosure to access your SSD via your MacBook for troubleshooting

    Time Machine backup - as long as your hackintosh is fully running and compatible it will restore to your time machine backup.

    Cloning - Requires to install the bootloader and compatible drivers/kext before putting it to your would be hackintoshed computer
    1.) Clone to SSD
    2.) Install bootloader to SSD. not on your MacBook HDD
    3.) Install kexts/Drivers
    4.) Insert SSD to your PC
    5.) Boot hackintosh with appropriate boot flags. e.g. GraphicsEnabler=Yes npci=0x2000 -v -f ... etc. etc. etc.

  • Hi guys, managed to install yosemite on my rig ngayon lang via clover. Dami ko ring lessons learned although nainstall ko naman sya without sya without any problems. Actually last hackintosh ko was leopard pa sa DV5 ko dati, afterwards hindi na ko nag hackintosh ulit til now. Gusto ko sana muna talaga na mag chimera pero hindi pwede dahil wala ako mac, windows lang. Share ko lang kung ano dinaanan ko:

    1. Downloaded retail DMG ng 10.10.2 and 10.10.3 update. Wala kasing direct download na mabilis na link for 10.10.3, yung iba naman modified na. Mas prefer ko pa rin yung retail untouched.
    2. Created an installer using paragon, transmac and hfsexplorer. Manual extract and edit ng DMG files sa windows then loaded clover on the disk. Useful din ang 7zip when extracting the files inside the DMG.
    3. Installed muna via vmware thinking that I can create a unibeast installer from the retail copy. Hindi pala pwede dahil dapat downloaded via appstore kaso ayoko na magredownload dahil malaki filesize. Also downloaded all kexts needed which will be tranferred later sa usb installer via transmac.
    4. Decided to make another clover installation usb inside vmware at basa basa muna.
    5. Napansin ko mas ok pala sa clover since no need to remove the graphics card when installing the OS. I just disabled intel graphics. Confirmed this one from the FB Hackintosh group.
    6. Installed yosemite then immediately updated to 10.10.3. Added Nv_disable=1 nga pala sa config.plist or sa clover boot menu mismo especially when booting sa USB.
    7. Reinstalled clover as UEFI then changed the SMBIOS to MacPro 3,1
    8. Used multibeast to install ALC 892 audio, although nag fefail yung installation, nainstall pa rin.
    9. Installed nvidia drivers.
    10. Had to install voodoo ps2 drivers nga pala just in case since ps2 keyboard gamit ko at the moment.
    11. Everything works except wifi. Pero parating naman na bukas yung inorder ko for the wifi so no worries naman.
    12. At the moment nakadual boot ako with Windows 8.1 since mga games ko andun.

    Specs ng rig ko:

    Mobo: Gigabyte H97N-wifi
    Proc: Intel 4770k
    Vcard: Gigabyte GTX 970 Gaming G1
    HDD: Intel 520 SSD 240GB and 2 seagate 320gb laptop hardisk.
    Case: Node 304
    Mem: 8gbx1 Kingston Hyperx Fury 1866Mhz

  • Additional post lang. I've managed to activate imessage just from the previous SMBIOS generation sa clover. Used Mac 2008 (para mainstall GTX 970 driver)
    Now for the tricky part:
    1. Upon signing in sa imessage may lalabas na 12-digit validation code na itatawag mo sa toll free apple support for the philippines. This validation allows future signing in with the same Apple ID from what I read sa tonymac.
    2. Tinawagan ko yung number for globe: 1800-8908-8277
    3. Mejo napalaban tayo dahil mukhang foreigner yung kausap ko. Dial 4 nga pala then sabihin mo lang you want to activate your imessage at meron kang 12 digit verifcation code.
    4. He asked me about my 3 security question which dapat alam natin ang sagot.
    5. Then he asked me to give him the serial number ng mac ko.
    6. After that nakareceive ako ng message sa iphone ko saying that imessage is now being used sa hackintosh ko (see image)

    Mighty fine work sir! 10/10 -thumbs up-

    Thanks dan! Would love to provide support for others as well especially to first time hackintoshers. I still encourage everyone to use clover para iwas sakit ng ulo in the long run. For instance, from the tonymac site with regards to updating to 10.10.3 from 10.10/.1/.2 on chimera, you have to rebuild caches pa prior to installing the update and will sometimes break your nvidia driver, TRIM and of course audio and will sometimes cause a screen garble after bootup. With clover, I just installed the update as is and reinstalled the audio via multibeast, the rest seems to work properly even sleep/wake. Plus, its really easy to install OSX on clover with a discrete graphics card connected unlike in chimera based on what I read on the tonymac forum where most users need to disconnect/reconnect the card while configuring/installing. I don't wanna go that route since I'm using an ITX case with a very long graphics card. If I did, I have to remove everything first including the motherboard (managed to fit a 312mm card on a case where the max gpu length is 310mm). Well maybe I had it easy since my mobo is DSDT free and needs minimal kexts and configuration to work.

    By the way, I've also tested SMS relay ng messages app from iphone to hackintosh and it seems to work well as well (para pwede ka pa rin magsend/receive ng message kahit walang imessage yung nasa contacts mo). Tested sending SMS via messages app :)

  • Guys i have a Lenovo T61, and T410 gusto ko sana i Hackintosh, kahit anung Mac OSX ( basta capable mag Facetime )
    though medyo maliit lang specs nila ( mosly Running on Core 2 Duo / 1st Series i5 Proc and 2 GB Memory
  • Sa T410 it'll probably work. I already saw sa tonymac na napagana ang T410 core i5 sa mountain lion 4gb ram. Don't know how well it performs at 2gb ram though. Sa T61 not sure. I think kahit mag yosemite ka sa T410 it will work basta dagdag memory ka na lang just to be sure. Check mo na lang wifi mo kung compatible. If not kuha ka na lang ng dongle na compatible (shameless plug, meron ako extra dito).
  • di ko naman need masyado mataas na OSX facetime lang naman habol ko hehehe,.

    try ko nlng look for tutorials thanks..
  • BTW aung minimum OS ba ang capable mag facetime
  • Hi! I am looking for a person who can Hackintosh my Aspire 4740. Pampanga are only if it is possible. Thanks in advance.
  • @fortloki

    im from angeles sir & im willing to help :)
  • baka may tiga marikina/ cainta na makakatulong ihackintosh laptop ko na msi ge620dx.. papatulong sana.. thanks.. :D
  • di ko naman need masyado mataas na OSX facetime lang naman habol ko hehehe,.

    try ko nlng look for tutorials thanks..

    Basa basa lang bro. Kaso warningan na kita sa facetime kasi to make that work sa clover for instance, kailangan mo tumawag sa apple support na puro mga foreigners kausap mo. Plus kung wala kang 2 factor authentication sa account mo, better check kung ano yung 3 security questions na sinet mo sa account mo kasi sigurado tatanungin nila yan. Lastly kung may iphone ka or ipad etc na activated na ang facetime/imessage, do not factory reset or reset the network after activating facetime dahil lalabas ulit yung 12 digit activation at mapapatawag ka ulit sa apple support. Much better isignout mo muna facetime and imessage sa lahat ng iDevice mo. Had to learn it the hard way nung nag network reset ako sa iphone ko, ayun, tawag ulit ako sa apple support mejo hirap na rin nga ako sa inglisan at sa pagpapaliwanag. Pagtinanong ka na lang ng serial number mo sabihin mo nasa ibang lugar ka dahil sira phone nyo sa bahay tapos pilitin mo lang na hindi na kailangan ng serial or nalimutan mo. Kung yung generated mo kasi na serial pwede kung papayag naman yung kausap mong foreigner kahit wala sa database nila, swertehan na lang siguro.
