  1. hola, soy nuevo en este tema del hackintosh, aunque en si, ya habia escuchado de el en el pasado, pero hasta ahora no habia tenido el momentum apropiado y las herramientas para utilizarlo, el problema es el siguiente, no tengo claro el nivel de compatibilidad de mi hardware, y cual mac OS deberia instalar, y si vale la pena gastar en hackintosh para trabajar con avid media composer, ya que trabajo en el area audiovisual, y esto, aunque trabajo bien en windows, quiero, al menos, sacarme la duda, si vale la pena el hack, o no.

  4. Hello, I downloaded OS X Lion.app and used Uni Beast to create a bootable USB install drive.

  5. What is Wineskin? ? Wineskin is a tool used to make ports of Windows software to Mac OS X. ?The ports are in the form of normal Mac application bundle wrappers. ?It works like a wrapper around the Windows software, and you can share just the wrappers if you choose. Best of all, its free! ? Download ? If you are using Mac OS X and want to run Windows applications, the most popular option is to install Windows OS using Bootcamp, or run Windows in a virtual machine. Linux users will know that you can use Wine to install and run Windows applications natively. The good news is that Mac users can run Wine to install Windows applications as well. Wineskin is a Wine-tool ported over to the Mac platform. Check out how you can run Windows applications on Mac OS X. ? Wineskin is simply an implementation of Wine at its core. For those who are not sure what Wine (an acronym for “Wine Is Not an Emulator”) is, it is a compatibility layer capable of running Windows applications on several POSIX-compliant operating systems, including Linux and Mac OS X. ? Installation ? The installation is pretty straight-forward. ? 1. Download Wineskin from website. The latest version as of this post is 2.5.12. But now the 2.6.0 is available. ? 2. Extract the file and move the Wineskin app to your Applications folder. Open it. ? ? On the first run, there won’t be any engine showing up in the list. Click the “+” button to download and install the latest engine. The engine is required to make the Windows applications work. ? ? Once the engine is installed, you are ready to install Windows applications. ? Installing Windows applications ? Before you start, make sure you have the executable file of the desired Windows application with you. Note that Wineskin doesn’t support all the Windows applications out there. Check out Wine’s AppDB to see if the application you want is supported. ? 1. Click the “Create New Blank Wrapper” button and enter a name for this wrapper. In this example, we will be installing Peazip on Mac. ? ? While creating the wrapper, it will prompt you to install mono package for running .Net applications and Gecko package for running HTML-based apps. ? ? 2. Once the wrapper is created, open it in Finder; right click and select “Show Package Content.” ? ? You should see two folders: “Contents” and “drive_c” and a Wineskin app. Run the Wineskin app. ? ? 3. Select “Choose Setup executable” and select the executable file of the Windows application. ? ? The installation will proceed just like it does in Windows. ? ? Running Windows applications ? Run the Wineskin app (from the Wrapper folder) again. This time, click “Advanced.” Browse and select the installed application and click “Test Run.” This will run the Windows application. ? ? This is what the application will look like: ? ? Once you are happy with the test run, the next time you can just double click the Wrapper app to open this application. ? That’s it. ? Source:?Make Tech Easier
  6. Kinda weird but I'm a running mavericks and windows 7 dual boot system. In windows, I updated my nvidia gtx 560 gpu driver, and wanted to use 2 of those in sli, but since my motherboard doesn't support sli, I downloaded a hack program (which worked perfectly before) and installed it.? Installation was perfect, windows asked me to reboot, upon reboot, the windows option was gone and I could only boot into osx.? When I check disk utility, the partition which was once called windows, is now named disk1s3, is unmounted, ms-dos(FAT) and greyed out. I am not able to mount or explore the partition. Is there any way to restore it back to windows? I have no idea why it would have unmounted like that. Thanks for the help in advance. ? update tried to verify disk partition in disk utility and got this message ? Invalid BS_impBoot in boot block: 333334
  7. Compatability

    I want to put os x on a computer. I have two choices, the Dell inspirion 15 3000 series 703270, or the Hp x2 tablet pc 10-k010nr. I already talked to Hp support, and they said the hp tablet pc is designed like a regular pc so it can have bios access, run the same version of os as a regular pc would. ?THe tablet also has a keyboard and mousepad, so it dosnt need to be touch screen %100! 1.?http://www.officedepot.com/a/products/703270/Dell-Inspi... 2.?http://www.officedepot.com/a/products/488121/HP-Pavilio...

  8. Triple boot freeze on ubuntu

    Hi, I tried to do a triple boot but I have a problem to boot on ubuntu. When I choose Ubuntu on clover I get stuck on clover's logo. I can boot to Windows and Maverick without any problems. ?

  9. Hi all, it is my first time at this site and first topic. I have an exper laptop and i want to use Windows and mac on same laptop. I built Wİndows 8.1 Pro and now i have Mavericks 10.9.3 set up in my flashdisc. After set up mavericks, i should set up Clover Cofigurator for boot menu. But my hard disc that installed Windows and Mavericks is MBR. Clover Configurator is for GPT disc. I have tried to convert my harddisc to MBR but Windows couldnt install. To sum up, how can I set up Clover Configurator 3.19 in MBR mode to do something on my harddisc? (my English is not so good. i am sorry because of this )
  10. ? hi there, I hope I have posted this in the correct place.? ? I am having a great deal of trouble with my hackintosh that I have recently built. I have got the apple side of things installed on a separate hard drive to my windows, and that all works fine, give or take a few minor errors. the trouble that i am having now is that my windows 8 side that is on a different internal hard drive is just giving me errors after errors. ? here are some of the symptoms: - unable to load itunes, the icon on the task bar appears if it loading up and then stops and goes back to how it looked if i hadn't clicked it. - norton 360, once clicked it instantly says 'Norton 360 has stopped working'. - unable to load most of my apps, music, video, etc. the loading page appears with the symbol for about 5-10 seconds and then goes back to my start screen. - unable to open pc settings. i wanted to carry out system restores, however like my app, it displays the cog symbol, then after 5-10 seconds goes back to the start screen. - unable to run trouble shooter, displays an error message saying it ran into a problem, therefore i have to close. ? these are just some of the symptoms i have when i am able to access windows. ? getting onto this screen is very difficult. when i start my computer, i have to access the boot options, and then select the option called Windows Boot Manager. for some reason this has been partitioned on my mac os HDD (mavericks), however when it loads it launched my windows side, and obviously runs my windows drive. if i am successful, i can type my password in and i am greeted with my start screen. alternatlively i sometime encounter a message saying: ? The User Profile Service failed the sign-in. ? The remote procedure call failed and did not execute. ? i then select OK, and the login screen appears a second time. this time if i type my password in and enter, i am usually greeted with what seems like the installation process for windows. it says stuff like 'Hi' and 'Getting Your Apps Ready'. i have followed this through to no avail, and it simply reboots my machine. ? to get around this i have managed to install my Windows 8 installation DVD, selected the advanced options and entered command prompt. from here i have typed in bootrec/fixmbr. at this point i reboot my machine, boot from the Windows Boot Manager partition and that usually allows me to access my desktop. ? If i was to boot from the HDD that windows is installed on, i get an error message saying; 'No operating system was found' and then it says to press ctrl, alt and delete to restart my computer. ? when i boot from the windows 8 DVD, i also have the ability to refresh my pc or even restore my pc. i have attempted to run both of these to no success. i get errors messages saying the drive you have selected is locked. please unlock it, etc. ? now i am completely stuck??? my mac side is fine, and i can access that by inserting my Uni****t?USB and selecting mavericks from the list. however i need my windows side working. ? If anyone knows how to resolve trhis without losing my data i will be truly thankful if not, i will have to simply reformat the drive and re-install windows i guess? im not sure how to do this though?? ? many thanks in advance, and please can someone help me with these issues!

  14. Hi, I'm currently running a Windows 7 x64 PC with: 8GB DDR3 Ram AMD FX 4170 GPU AMD Radeon HD 7870 CPU 1TB HDD (Windows 7) 150GB HDD (Blank) ? Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 Motherboard I am aware that getting OSX on an AMD machine is not an easy task, but can it be done with my setup? I am currently running OSX 10.8.3 in VMWare which is OK but lags a fair bit and lacks any kind of 3d acceleration and would like to be able to dual boot it natively alongside windows on the 150GB HDD. Thanks?
  15. I am currently trying to get internet access on my Mac OS X 10.6 virtual machine. I am running Windows 8 as the host OS and using VmWare Workstation 10. I have created the VM using an ISO image of Mac OS X 10.6 and have the whole operating system up and running well. However, whenever I try to connect to the internet I don't have a connection. I have tried using the "bridged" option for the Network adapter of the host OS (Windows 8) but I am having no luck. I have also tried the other options and none of them are working.The only option I am getting is the Telephone Modem which is no use. I'm not dual-booting, I'm just using a virtual machine, which as I mentioned above works apart from the internet. Can anyone help? Help is very much appreciated Thanks.
  16. Hey Guys! Has anyone yet to make a guide on installing 10.8.2 on a Windows 8 certified laptop? (Or more specifically, if possible, a guide on the K56CM Series of ASUS laptops) I've installed Hackintosh on my PC, but I have a Windows 8 certified K56CM laptop and I'm not so sure on what the installation process is, as there is obviously different bios and that sort of thing. From reading a couple posts on other threads, it would seem that the WiFi controller that comes with a K56CM Laptop is not supported (yet) and people wanting WiFi would need to replace their WiFi with a AR9285 WiFi card. Apparently the GT635 is not compatible with 10.8.2 because Macs don't support dual GPU systems. (Two different kinds, in this case, HD4000 and GT635) So a kext (or something) is required so that only the HD4000 GPU is used. Also, regarding partitioning, I'd like to dual-boot Windows 8/Mountain Lion if possible, just in case the ML OS screws up in anyway. Would that mean re-sizing the hard drive so that there is about 20-30 GB of unused space? (K56CM laptops being ultra thin, only comes available with one hard drive slot, so it is impossible to add another) Any information regarding this would be greatly appreciated not only for me, but for other users of similar laptops! Thanks! [Edit] If anyone is willing to make a guide, hope I'm not asking much, but can you make it as detailed as possible? (from including things like boot commands, kexts installed, that sort of things)

  19. Hi! I have installed Snow Leopard on my Dell Vostro 1015. Everything works well except my graphics card(Intel GMA4500 MHD). I tried several ways to make it work, but still it isn't working properly. So I decided to put Windows 7 back. I will use osx later, when I get a better computer. But here is another problem. When I try to boot using Windows instalation DVD or bootable USB flash drive, computer still loads into Snow Leopard. When I hit F12 at startup - there is a possibility to chose USB drive, but it always loads into HDD. Do I have to change something in bios settings? Or is there a specific way to make bootable USB or DVD to make it boot when osx is installed. I have Snow Leopard 10.6.3. with Chameleon RC5 bootloader. When I put this USB drive in a windows computer, everything seems working and it loads when I choose it with F12.

  21. I couldn't find an appropriate forum section for this question so I put it in the 10.7 because that's what I'll be planning to install.. anyway ... I Hackintosh'd my PC before.. it ran fine, everything was fine except video, I couldn't ever find a kext for and I just gave up on it.. the methods I used back then was - 8GB USB with iAtkos ISO on it (used TransMac since I don't have an actual OS X).. Windows 7 with Chameleon Install 1806.. with that app I was able to install the Chameleon bootloader from Windows.. Now, I am trying the same thing again with the same methods, since it looks like one of my friends has found a Kext for my Video Card and I'll see if it works.. the problem is Chameleon Install 1806 won't install any bootloaders.. I open it, choose a theme (tried all) and click install but no message that it has been installed.. the Install button won't do anything.. +the bootloader won't install at all.. On my parents' laptop the bootloader installs fine with no problems, and I use the exact Windows version as them.. It worked on my PC before but now it doesn't.. any ideas? I tried compatibility mode and administrator mode etc.. still no luck.. I can't use iB{censored} since my PC's DVD/CD Reader is messed up and barely reads any DVD/CDs.. so I'm out of luck with that.. I also tried iB{censored} from USB but it wouldn't recognize my 8GB USB with iAtkos on it.. So yes, that's my problem with Chameleon.. I'm trying to install from Windows, it won't install at all.. but it ran before (this is a quite fresh installl of Windows by the way). Thanks..
  22. I've been following appliarts guide for installing Snow Leopard on an AMD PC: http://www.osx86.net/desktops/9746-guide-os-x-10-6-amd.html I have downloaded both the Nawcom modcd (also burned it to blank dvd) and the retail osx 10.6 Snow Leopard dmg file. Unfortunately my blank DVD is only 4.7 gb and the dmg file is over 6. I've seen in several tutorials it's recommended to make a bootable dmg usb drive BUT they all require you have osx already installed to use the mac utilities to do so. I don't have access to a mac so can I create a bootable dmg usb drive in windows 7? NO osx virtual box NO installing any mac builds JUST with strictly Windows 7 software.
  23. In the past I have had just iATKOS s3 v2 on my laptop. But now I want to be able to dual boot to be able to get QE/CI within Windows 7. First step I took was deleting everything by deleting my OS X 10.6.6 partition (after backing up everything to my time machine) then I installed Windows 7 Professional 32-bit to my machine. Partitioning half of my HDD, 125GB out of my 250GB. Now I have left my other 125GB unpartitioned for booting iATKOS s3 v2 on to it. What should my next step(s) be? Help is VERY much appreciated. My Hardware Specs: Dell Inspiron 1545 CPU: Pentium Dual-Core CPU T4500 @ 2.30GHZ RAM: 3GB Display adapter: Mobile Intel 45 Express Chipset Family
