I am wanting to create a Hackintosh machine although I am unsure if my configuration is capable of doing so, so I thought I would post and ask the community as I have never set up a Hackintosh machine before so I need some help.
I have followed this guide here ...
Hi guys, I built my hackintosh a couple of years ago with the following specs:
Gigabyte Z87X-UD5H motherboard
GTX 760 Graphics card
Corsair RM650 Power supply
16Gb of Crucial Ballistix RAM
Samsung 840 EVO 120Gb SSD (Yosemite installed to this drive)
Seagate 1TB solid state hybrid...
I'm from the shallow end of the tech gene pool and looking for advice on upgrading my second Hackintosh, a GA-Z97X-UD5H/i7-4790k/GTX-760 I've been using for FCPX video editing for two years. It's starting to glitch (occasional slowness, random freezes) and I need to upgrade from Yosemite to...
So I've noticed when setting my Turbo power limit to 88watts, which is the stock values on my Z97M-D3H. My CPU will only reach roughly x36 instead of x40-44. Setting the Core current limit to 105amps seems to not have an affect my performance. But setting the TDP to Intel's recommended 88watts...
I got El Capitan working on my desktop computer, but it just randomly freezes (I have to restart the computer after a freeze).
After looking up solutions on how to fix it, I saw that the ethernet kext may be at fault. So I removed the kext and wouldn't you know, it wasn't freezing anymore, but...
I don't know what I've done, but my system no longer boots. It just cycles between the Asus BIOS entry screen and the Clover Boot Manager Screen
A few hours ago I updated to 10.11.4, plus the latest Nvidia drivers, with no apparent issues. Since then I've been trying to restore HDMI video. I...
MoBo : Asus z97-c
Processor : Intel Core i7 4790K
Hi, this is my first hackintosh that I build. After installing it with no problems whatsoever, but after finishing all the other things I noticed that the audio is not working.
At System Preferences > Sound it shows me this:
I don't have any...
I have an I7 4790k and a msi z97 gaming 7, so when a make any cpu overclock and try to wake the pc from sleep neither keyboard or mouse are working, both USB. I have read on other post that I have to set the bus speed to static, but I don't know how to do that on my BIOS that is the MSI click...
It's my first time building a computer myself, so I went to the "Buyer's Guide" and chose these parts:
Intel Core i7 4790K
Cooler Master H60 Watercooling
Asus z97-C Motherboard
2x Samsung EVO 850 250GB SSD
Crucial Ballistix Tactical 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory

I am new to the world of hackintosh. I barely started reading last night and finally got the courage to execute my first one. I used this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0qf9j68lVQ for my installation. I used boot args nv_disable=1 only. I finished installing el capitan.
I've tried twice so far to install it on my windows pc with no success. I've followed every step exactly from the guide posted by tonymacx86. Im using a 32 gb sandisk usb drive, formatting it on a macbook air, and installing the OS on it with Unibeast. Also, i've tried to boot from usb on my pc...
Motherboard: Maximus VII Hero
Graphics: 980 Ti
HDD: Sandisk 120GB SSD
I've successfully installed El Capitan but without any sound! I used the kext ALC1150 within multicast but to no avail. I installed the clover UEFI boot loader, fakeSMC along with the plugins. In...
I'm building a CAD workstation and got a crazy idea that perhaps I could hackintosh it. I would love to do most of my work on a Mac and then switch over to a PC when I needed to run my PC CAD progs.
Heres my build so far:
Asus Z97-A/USB 3.1
g.skill ripjaws x series 4x8gb ddr3-2133...
I'd like to start by saying that this is my third post in this forum and I have to complain that I have got no reply on them. :-(
I don't mean to point that the community is not active because I see people discussing anything and everything. I'd like to know what went wrong? Did i...
Hey guys, I just built my first rig last week, and I installed Windows 10 on it. Everything's working perfectly, but I tried to install OS X El Capitan lately on a second drive, it installs perfectly using the Unibeast drive, and then I install the multibeast drivers and nvidia driver and it...

For over a year I wanted to tackle my own hackintosh project, but never did, until today.
To get to my problem
I can't install the OS. The system "boots" (?) fine into clover, and recognises my bootable USB drive, but I am greeted with a big canceled out circle, if I try to...
