Hackintosh?

Mac OSX is an OS offering from Apple Inc which is built to run exclusively on Apple branded computer hardware, and it does that job pretty well. But what if you want to try it out without having to buy a whole new computer to go along with it? To try something out just for a few days?

Presenting, the Hackintosh. A portmanteau of the words “hack” and “macintosh”, a hackintosh setup lets you run OSX on your non Apple computer hardware. Although technically possible to install OSX on your non Mac computers, take note that it does violate the Apple OSX EULA. You have been warned.

This guide is to satiate your curiosity only. Like what you see? Buy a mac.

The Process

OSX needs “EFI” to boot. It doesn’t play ball with BIOS based systems. And most EFI based systems still can’t start the OSX installer, because of a lack of “HFS+” filesystem driver in their implementations, which the Apple Installer Medium uses.

Drivers

We use a bootloader which emulates EFI and can load files from the Apple Installer, and then use vanilla Apple tools to install OSX on the system drive.

For

After installation, we install the bootloader to the system drive, so you can boot off your system without using a bootloader from an external device. We will also need to install custom kexts so your hardware may work, and need to patch your computer’s Differentiated System Description Table (DSDT).

For

This guide is geared towards running Mac OSX Mountain Lion 10.8 on an HP Pavilion G6 2303tx

What You Need

Before getting started, make sure you have the following things in order :

  • A USB drive of at least 8GB capacity
  • A running install of OSX Snow Leopard or higher(An actual mac, another Hackintosh, or even a Virtual Machine)
  • “Install OS X Mountain Lion.app” from the Mac App Store or the “InstallESD.dmg” from it
  • “myHack” (An OSX Application)
  • Custom kexts and drivers (which kexts? put links)
    • VoodooHDA for Audio
    • Realtek Drivers for wired network
    • FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext and FakePCIID.kext from RehabMan’s Repository for USB 3.0
  • A large serving of patience! 🙂

Getting Started

Setting up your install media

In your Snow Leopard installation, use the “Disk Utility” to prepare your install media. Set up the USB (I assume) device to use “GUID Partition Table” and create a “Mac OS Extended (Journaled)” file system of at least 8GB on it.

Use the myHack application to install OSX onto your USB drive.

Installing OSX

Boot from the USB drive. You’ll need the following boot flags to actually boot into the installer :

PCIRootUID=1 GraphicsEnabler=No cpus=1 -v -f

Use the “Disk Utility” from the installer environment to setup “GUID Partition Table” on your install target, and create a “Mac OS Extended (Journaled)” file system partition, of upto 1 TB in size. If you have a multi TB disk, create multiple partitions.

Quit the Disk Utility, and go back to the installer. Install OSX like regular. Reboot to the installer media.

Copy all kexts from /Extra/Extensions/ of the installer volume to /System/Library/Extensions/.

Post Install

Hp Laptops Pavilion G6

Boot your installed mac via the USB bootloader. Use the same flags as above to successfully boot.

Right after the install, your computer may boot in horrible looking resolution, with choppy graphics and other performance issues, ignore them for now.

Install Clover on your boot volume, with the following options checked:

  • Install Clover in ESP Mode
  • Driver64UEFI/OSXAptioFixDrv-64
  • Install RC Scripts on Target Volume
  • Install Clover Preference Pane

After install, replace the files in the mounted EFI volume with the linked files for DSDT patching. This will enable graphics acceleration on your system (called QuartzExtreme / CoreImage in OSX).

At this point, you should have everything except for Audio, Network, and USB 3.0 working. Install VoodooHDA, and remove AppleHDA.kext to enable your Audio, Realtek drivers for wired network and FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext and FakePCIID.kext from Rehabman’s Repo for USB 3.0. The wifi card (RaLink RT3290) is not supported by OSX, and does not work. Reboot to a glorious working system.

You can update to 10.8.5 from here if you want to / if your computer is not already at 10.8.5, and it should work without any issues.

End Notes

Installing and running a near perfect OSX on your non Apple branded computer hardware makes for a fun project, but it isn’t ready to be a daily driver (bad audio output, missing wireless on this system; could be any number of issues on another system). The community at osx86 project is hard at work at supporting even more hardware, but progress without official support has its limits, not to forget the fact that the project as a whole violates the OSX License Agreement. If you must use OSX for your daily work, you’re better of purchasing hardware officially supported by Apple.
