Almost every Hackintosh user suffered from this error “Waiting for DSMOS” or “DSMOS has arrived” this are the common issues for almost every Hackintosh System and this issue is caused most of the time by FakeSMC.kext and it’s a Graphics issue too on this guide i will show you how to bypass this error with few steps.
I figure out two Solution for this Error
Solution 1:-
Download the latest FakeSMC.kext and replace with the old one.You can do it by mac drive or From USB installer and Boot with Following flag “GraphicsEnaber=No”
If that doesn’t fix your problem, boot your mac drive with single-user mode(-s) and type:
/sbin/mount -uw
mkdir ~/backup
cd /System/Library/Extensions
If you have NVIDIA graphics then type:
mv -R NVD*.kext ~/backup
If you have AMD/ATI Graphics then type:
mv -R ATI*.kext ~/backup
If you have IntelGraphics then type:
mv -R AppleIntelGMA* ~/backup
mv -R AppleIntelHD* ~/backup
mv -R AppleIntelSNB* ~/backup
mv -R AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext ~/backup
Solution 2:-
Boot your mac drive using this flags ” -V -S ” and you go to single mode
fsck -fy
mount -uw /
mkdir /backup
cd /System/Library/Extensions
mv AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelSNB* AMDRadeon* ATI* GeForce* NVDA* /backup
rm ../Caches/
