Specs: Hackintosh Yosemite, 4/16
Hello all,

I am new to hackintosh and I am installing hackintosh on my pc.

pc specs: Intel i5 3570 with HD 2500

mothernoard intel DH77KC,

corsair 16 gb ram

I think that's enough.

okay. So I followed the tonymacx86 guide to install mac osx Yosemite on my PC, the one with unibeast and multibeast. and now I could only log in with the -x boot flag, ie to the safemode. In normal mode it just shows a garbled screen and gets stuck.

display works, but without graphic acceleration, so I searched and found out that the HD2500 is not supported. Now I am planning to buy a new graphic card. Mainly for using it with fcp.

from some research I found that some Maxwell cards have trouble with hackintosh. So I am confused.

I would like to buy some thing from nvidea like the gt 640 or 740.

I would not go far enough to buy gtxX60 range. gtxX50ti is my maximum. I don't want much acceleration or anything in my fcp. I just want to use it without any glitches.

so please suggest me a good card.

Also can anyone tell me which lan driver should I choose in multibeast. It worked the first time when I booted from the usb, but when I switched to harddisk, its not showing up.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Installing any Apple OS on non Apple hardware is explicitly in violation of Apple's EULA. No one on this forum will help you with this.

No one here will give you any advice using "hackintosh". It's illegal to use the Mac system on a pc. I understand it rarely works, and it's not worth it. We're not goodie two shoes, but we can't help with illegal stuff. Your best bet is to buy a Mac and using boot camp, you can install windows in it if you want both systems. On a pc, the closest you'll come to a Mac is to use a Linux os. Good Luck to you.

Well That doesnt help. but thanks for the reply.
I know its illegal, but its kinda.. I dont know. I own a mac and osx is free from apple store, Actually I downloaded it from Appstore using my id.

so that makes it harmless I think.

If anybody can help, it would be great.

Thanks..

If you already own a Mac, why the need to install it (unsuccessfully) on a PC? Horses for courses.

well. Thanks.

can you just give a list of gt7 series or gt6 series cards natively shipped with mac machines. preferably with osx yosemite?

I think there is nothing illegal in this question.

I understand most macs, except the old Macbook Pro don't use video cards. The video is not upgradeable on the new macs. The graphics are on the motherboard. Even if you could use a card, chances are there are no drivers for a mac. A mac is a mac, and a pc is pc. Give up the mackintosh thing, it probably will never work.

Sorry guys. I asked in the wrong place. There are a lot of guides showing how to do a hackintosh. And also even the nvidia releases drivers for mac.

you just have to look in the right place.

as i posted i have installed mac on pc. Exept that the video acceleration is not 100%. I will hopefully purchase a gtx650 Or gt 740 And hope it can get 100% Without the nvidia drivers. Its tested and proven working with nvidea drivers.

bought the asus version of gt740 2gb, had to upgrade the bios for it to work. hackintosh detects this gpu automatically and works with 100% video acceleration without any extra drivers.

For now, everything seems alright including the Lan drivers.

Thanks for your support
