Toshiba Satellite P50-A

Recommended Posts

Trying to install on my P50-A.

 

grabbed the iso from a source which is probably why I am having issues.  I made a bootable USB stick from a guide I found online, it gets to the install and after cycling thru craps out (Real technical term).  I can get access to a Mac on Mionday at work but for the love of god can I get some assistance.  Here are the following specs:

 

Toshiba Satellite P50-A-144 - 15.6" -
Core i7 4700MQ -
8 GB RAM
1 TB HDD

 

Any help is REALLY apprecaited.

 

Thanks

Boot with verbose mode + debug 0x100 by selecting the spacebar when you get to the Clover menu.

Please describe this.

"A" guide found online?

 

No support for distros or TMX here I'm afraid. Both are evil stuff. Apple OS has been free for some years so please proceed with a full vanilla installation. You'd also greatly benefit from specifying the version you're trying to install.

Someone made an ISO from his Hackintosh and I downloaded it from his Google Drive account. Was told to use the app Transmac since I don't have access to a Mac on a regular basis

 

The guide was literally just a set of instructions to use if your on a Windows PC. If you need or want to see I can post.

 

As for version it was Mavericks as I was told that it doesn't matter what version you do as you can upgrade to the latest version

Uh total noob at this.  I did and read some more and I've been to some other sites that have basically said.  Plug usb stick into a mac and download the osx from the mac store....and create with clover on the mac.  boot laptop with usb stick and off you go.  other have gone into more specific instructions.  Frankly I am at a loss and have no clue on what I am doing.

finally made my bootable usb with clover on my fiancées macbook with El Captain (Her Macbook is OLD). Boot my P50-A and get to the Clover boot menu choose the option to boot into the installer it starts fine and after a few second turns off and reboots. Not sure what else to do but i'm so close to getting this up and running

 

Hopefully someone can help

can try with Cvad's utility from windows. there is also https://bitbucket.org/kylon/cloud-clover-editor-cce if you need to configure your clover config plist from any os I believe this one is a browser based editor.

 

Managed to make the USB stick and it boots to Clover and when I choose the option of Boot into Mac OS X installer however it acts like it's gonna start and then it does nothing. Reboots back into the Clover boot agent. Went into the options and changed "Then type in GraphicsEnabler=no".

 

Still stuck in a loop

You have a 4th gen Haswell laptop (i7-4700MQ) so make sure to activate the Clover KernelPm patch, otherwise you're indeed likely to encounter system reset as kernel loads. Use latest version of Clover Configurator app to prepare and tune your Clover config file.

I've done all of the above.  Not sure where the discrepancy is.  We tried changing config.plists for graphics, and all boot codes and different types of burns.  Still boots to the clover configuration and then when I choose the option of boot to os x it starts with a black screen and then reboots back to the clover menu.  not sure what else to do.

    • Welcome to OSXL! We are looking for volunteers to join us!
      Welcome to OSXL! 😀
       
      We, at OSXL, are a bunch of passionate Hackintoshers who have joined together for creating a community to drive learning, sharing and helping people interested in running Apple Mac software or tinkering with it on non-Apple hardware. We do research and development on a voluntary basis in our free time.
       
      Since its inception in 2010, our team evolved with people joining and going for all sorts of reasons. Nevertheless, this team brought out some of the best people who contributed to making the Hackintosh community progress. Unlike some other players, we’re very proud to we have consistently offered an ad-free website without calling for financial support, except on very rare occasions, and also made one of the best looking sites.😍 
       
      Back in the days, we also designed our "EDP" project to provide a common OS X installation package and a unified post-installation tool. EDP basically offered a central hub for system tuning. The project went through several phase and the latest one is currently Work In Progress. We also completed some research work and developed drivers, fixes and patches for some hardware.
       
      We recently revamped our site to a more modern look and implemented latest security features so to give our members an improvise quality of experience.
       
      Also, we are looking to expand for diversifying the content on our site not only to Apple OS, but also Linux, Android and Windows in the very near future with research and development as tech industry has changed a lot recent years and there is so much we can do in other areas and be relevant to what we do. 
       
      We are looking for passionate and dedicated people who can invest time and efforts in our community on projects like EDP and many others. 
       
      Drop us a line here in comments or through PM if interested so that we can chat about motivation, skills and ideas.
       
      You can find our crew list here if you would like to PM instead: OSXL Crew
