AMD Hackintosh: How to install OS X Mavericks 10.9.0 and update to 10.9.5


Links: Niresh Distro USB Mavericks installer:

10.9.5 Combo Update:

Patched 10.9.5 AMD kernel:

Mav Kexts (get the one that is 822.93KB in size):

Terminal Commands:
—————commands to make usb drive———–
diskutil list
sudo dd if=(drag your DMG here and then type the next thing)of=/dev/r(your identifier) bs=1m
————show hidden files————————
defaults write AppleShowAllFiles YES
————login as administrator———————–
sudo -s
———-Move contents from BSA/Patched AMD kernel folders to Mac disk——-
ditto (drag and drop folder BSA folder)(drag and drop folder with same name in mac disk)
-x (boots into safe mode)
-v (verbose mode, shows you what goes wrong if there are issues)
-f (used when changes have been made in the installation)

I have an FX 8350, so this process should work exactly like it did for me with a similar processor, but i have also installed on a phenom ii (although i havent updated to 10.9.5 on the phenom yet). Hope you enjoy. Like, share, and subscribe

    Hey there! Great tutorial so far! My only issue is my memory:
    In the system info it says, the speed is at 667Mhz but physicaly it is at 1333Mhz. For me it doesn't look like i get the full speed of it.
    Is it like that or is it just wrong written in the system report?
    I got a fx 8350 cpu
    And ga-990fxa-ud3 (rev3.0) from gigabyte
    And memory is g.skill [ripjaws] f3-12800cl9d-4gbrl (2x2gb)
    Onybody any idea? Thx in advance!

    ok so i followed your guide to the letter (as best as i can with my hardware). had a complete success with the install and the upgrade…. can u help with getting the videocard to be recognized tho? it seems i have an unsupported one that requires DSDT injection, all examples are of pcs but im using a laptop. so the architecture is different and i dont wanna crash it after all that work 🙂

    My jaw dropped to ground when I saw this video. My Hackintosh is AMD FX-8350, Asus M5A99GX Pro R2.0 mobo and Radeon R9 270X and 16Gb DDR3 1600 with 120Gb SSD near exactly the same. My H.I.T. has Mavericks 10.9.0 running and I really want to to upgrade it to 10.9.5. Following your instruction right now…..
