Can't boot installer (grey apple screen flashes, then reboot)
3 3

Question

Firstly, spec.

 

i7-4700MQ (with integrated HD4600 gfx), 2x8GB Samsung RAM, GeForce 765M, 250GB Samsung 840 Evo disk, 750GB WD Scorpion Black disk.

 

Now, if I boot without any flags it flashes up the grey apple screen for a fraction of a second and then reboots.

If I just use USBBusFix=Yes if spits out a load of "EBIOS read error: Device timeout"s

If I use any other combination of flags (IGPEnabler, GraphicsEnabler, -x, -f, UseKernelCache, dart) with -v, I get to the attached image then an immediate reboot

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm having the same problem with my HP Compaq 6730s (Intel Celeron T1600, 2,5GB RAM, 250GB HDD, 128MB Mobile 4 Series Chipset). I followed the guide given here ( http://www.macbreaker.com/2014/01/install-osx-mavericks-on-pc-with-niresh.html ), and used all the usual flags in just about every combination. every time, it gets to  "Starting Darwinx86_64" and then reboots. My computer dual-boots Windows 8.1 and I am trying to install Mavericks on a 32Gb Partition just to try a program we are using for a 3D design course. My computer does meet the minimum specs for the program, but I can't even run it because Mavericks won't install. It is a Mountain Lion and up program, and Lion worked perfectly on the same system, even the same partition. Please can someone help me in my thread for even trying to boot to the installer at: http://www.hackintosh.zone/forums/topic/2165-hp-compaq-6730s-not-booting-into-installer/

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello there,

 

I have the same issue too. But I am sure my PC can run Niresh because I already had installed before Niresh 10.8.

I really wanted to try out Mavericks. Please find the way to fix the problem.

I don't have access to a mac, so I can't use a vanilla installation with Unibeast, or any other installation, as a can't find the .dmg.

@Deepak I am now running 10.7.3, but need 10.8 or higher to run a program for my iPad. It's a mac-only program.

 

@ found .dmg today, how to use unibeast now that I have Lion installed?
