Problem installing Mavericks on a VAIO VPCW21A7E
2 2

Question

Im trying to install Mavericks from a bootable USB containing Niresh image of the OS, i got to the boot menu

But there if i press enter without typing any flag i get a screen with no loading animation, just the apple over a grey background

I have tried with the following flags :
-v ( Its supposed to show you where it does stop, but in my case i just get a fast text loading and then a black screen )

-v -x

-x

-s

atom -v

atom -x ( this leads me to a loading screen like the apple one with a loading animation, but it just loops and does nothing )

atom -s

 

My specs are this :

 

Processor : Intel Atom N470 1.86 GHz
Mainboard : Intel NM10
Memory : 1024 MB, DDR2-5300, 667 MHz, maximal 2 GByte
Graphics adapter : Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3150, Core: 200 MHz, 8.14.10.1929
Display : 10.1 inch 16:9, 1366x768 pixel, LED, glossy: yes

@datjcat Probably atom -v is enough to start anyhow atom cpus are not exclusively supported on mac

what do you get with atom -v

have you checked your bios settings?

 Im gonna try atom -v , my Bios is quite restricted so I can´t change the SATA disk type to AHCI, but it´s supposed to be in AHCI from default as in all VAIO laptops
