Help Booting Installation on AMD HP Envy 2015


Hi everyone!


I've tried hackintoshing - but years ago. Back to try it out again.


I can't get to the installer screen. Can you make some suggestions? I think the issue might be boot flags.


Installation type:

N{censored} Mavericks 10.9 with AMD & Intel - USB & ISO 10.9

[mod edit - link removed]

I believe this has AMD support. Again, I'm trying to figure this out, but with some AMD support I think I just need to insert the correct boot flags?


Computer type and specs:



AMD processor

Release: 2015

Name: HP ENVY Notebook - 15-ah151sa - (http://support.hp.com/gb-en/product/HP-ENVY-15-ah100-Notebook-PC/8499284/model/8942971/document/c04946555/?sku=P0U49EA)

CPU Family: Carrizo

CPU Type: AMD Quad-Core A10-8700P APU with Radeon R6 Graphics (1.8 GHz, 2 MB cache)

Graphics: AMD Radeon R6 Graphics (integrated)


Boot Issue:

So I'm first trying a distro. I reach the distro loader screen. If I press"enter", it says "errors while starting, restarting" then it restarts.


I've tried a variety of boot flags. I'm concerned if I use a wrong boot flag combined with useful boot flags, that makes it hard to figure out what the problem is, I think?


One error message I've seen several times is: "Not an Intel platform, restart fix not applied".


I've seen a variety of screens, some restart immediately, some go to a clean white screen with grey Apple logo and nothing happens within 10 minutes. Or, white screen with Apple logo and a kernel panic.


Moving Forward:

So perhaps I should start fresh. What should I try first for boot flags? Then I can provide any kenel panic information needed to troubleshoot.


Many thanks!

Hi, I've removed the Illegal link. Please read our forum rules.

Hi, yes I read all of it. I'm still stuck. Hopefully someone can help.

Well its and AMD laptop so dual gpu not going to wok.Then you also going to have issue with QE/CI.

But first you need to make a USB installer (manually )

You also can try VMware

Last read my guide pls.There are no magic fix to run Hackintosh.
