Hackintosh Page 1 Networking iAtkos Working!!! Snow Leopard Niresh Success!! Helpful Links Audio

This was not my first attempt at creating a Hackintosh with an AMD system.  It is now much more difficult to create a Hackintosh using an AMD based system using OSX 10.7.?  If you want to successfully create a Hackintosh using OSX 10.6 there are 2 very important resources you will need in order to accomplish your goal.  Tonymacx86.com and Insanelymac.com.  Multibeast is an extremely useful tool in installing kext files and/bootloaders. 


Using an AMD system, it is easier to use OSX 10.6 or older.  If you wish to create an AMD Hackintosh successfully you will need to get 3 things to work properly: 


Networking

Video

Sound


My advice:  After a successful install backup the system via Time Machine to an external drive or clone the system using Carbon Copy Cloner or some other means of system backup...THEN play with kexts and or bootloaders.  Many people make the mistake of installing/changing their systems around without a backup and when there is a problem they have no backup to fall back on.


*Time machine will more than likely wipe out all of the data on the drive if it is formatted NTFS or will format the drive and render it unusable for anything else...be carefull with your data!!!!!


Getting it to install successfully is one thing...but having all 3 of the above mentioned components working properly is another thing all together.


IF YOU ARE TRYING TO USE A VMWARE IMAGE OR CREATE A VMWARE VIRTUAL MACHINE USING AN AMD SYSTEM VIA OS X LION OR NEWER IT IS IMPOSSIBLE AT THIS TIME!!! AND I AM NOT KIDDING!!! 

I have only tried this using the following mother boards without any success:

Gigabyte GA-MA770TA-UD3

Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3

Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H

Gigabyte GA-MA790GP-UD4H

Biostar A780L


I used these CPU's also.

X3 720 unlocked to X4 20

X6 1090t

X6 1045t

FX 6100 BE

FX 8150 BE

 


The error message you get says "The CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system" and goes no further into the loading/booting screen.  I am not sure what the problem is but I have never been able to bypass this and I have not seen anything posted on the internet to rectify this situation.  Obviously AMD processors are not in Macs computers so this probably answers the question why this is not being addressed. 


Right now on osx86.net there is a link to a newly created kernal patch to install OSX Lion on AMD systems that may help.  You can find it here.
