Hackintosh - Basic Intro to Kernel Panics and Hangs

If you know your motherboard it may seem difficult to make the mistake of using the wrong DSDT, but when you're grabbing a pre-edited file from tonymacx86's DSDT database you might accidentally grab the wrong one and not realize it. Sometimes it's something as stupid as click the wrong link and not paying attention to the filename.

Other times you'll have your motherboard's firmware version wrong and need to download the DSDT file for the correct version. Generally this is not a mistake you'll make, but it does happen. If you're downloading a pre-edited DSDT file, always check its name with the name of your motherboard and your motherboard's firmware version. If they match up, you're good. If they don't, try again!

Unique Problems

Often times your hackintosh will not run properly—or at all—if there are conflicts in your BIOS settings. We detail the most important ones in our always up-to-date guide , so be sure to check you've followed those instructions correctly. If you're still having problems, it's probably time to move on to the next section because your issue may be unique.

Sometimes it's not your fault. Sometimes you have crappy hardware.

It's hard to tell with a hackintosh because it's easier to assume you did something wrong. If it does, get back to the drawing board. If it doesn't, return the broken part to the store for something that actually functions. When you get stuck with a problem that makes absolutely no sense, seems completely unique to you, and nothing even remotely related shows up in a web search, it's time to take your problem to other hackintoshers on the internet.

Two of the best places to ask questions are the InsanelyMac and tonymacx86 forums. The important thing to remember is to always search the forums for your problem before posting and do your best to choose the right subforum for your topic. If your probably is commonly discussed and you don't bother to look for an existing solution first, you might end up annoying other users and they won't want to help you.

You won't always find everything that's happened in the past, but a concerted effort to look before you post is always appreciated. Alternatively, when the internet turns out to be particularly unhelpful or you're simply impatient, try talking out the problem with a friend. It doesn't matter if they're hackintosh-illiterate or not.

Simply explaining the problem and suggesting possible reasons why it might be happening can lead you to a solution. If it does, be sure to take your friend out for a drink for listening to you talk nonsense at them for 30 minutes. Also, post it online. If you're having a particular problem, there's a good chance you're not the only one. Get the information out and help your fellow hackintoshers avoid the same frustration you encountered. Twitter's the best way to contact him, too. Got it to work!

Thanks for all the help you guys have given me!

How to solve Kernel Panic error

There are few small, nit picky problems that I still have though, but I can live with them. It seems like the boot time has gotten a little slower takes a few seconds for the progress bar to show up , and now when it is booting the boot screen bugs out a little bit and the apple logo splits into several I can post a picture if needed. Like I said, I can live with that but I guess it would be nice if I could resolve it too.

Regardless, I can boot into the OS now so my main problem is fixed. And update or add IntelGraphicsFixup. Updated like you said, everything is working pretty much like it used to. The boot screen goes black for a second or so but comes back and the progress bar finishes exactly like before. Boot time is about the same as it used to be before too.
