Booting Problem in Hp Laptop
4 4

Question

Whenever I try to install Yosemite from USB disk it just shows Mac Logo and then restarts immediately. I have tried the "/hp" solution but it didn't work. I know there is another solution on the site but I can't figure it out. The Solution is

 

There is a possibility of Instant reboot for custom kernel users as the kernel may not install automatically

to fix it after Installation Do Not Reboot Open Terminal
I assume that the kernel you used as haswell and The Installation Volume where you installed Mac as "Mac OS"
(Replace following code variables with appropriate kernel and volume name)
cp -f /Volumes/"Image Volume"/haswell /Volumes/"Mac OS"/System/Library/Kernels/kernel
rm
-rf /Volumes/"Mac OS"/System/Library/Caches
kextcache -u /Volumes/"Mac OS"

 

 

Can anyone tell me what to type in the "Image Volume" and the "Mac Os" Volume. 

 

Assume the USB i have written the Mac to is "I" Drive and the partition I want to install the Mac into is "G"

 

Thanxxx

hiii prajjwaldimri

 

i think these commands has to be used after the installation.I installed it successfully but ended up with scrambled login screen.

 

create a Chameleon usb boot loader and  try booting from it.

that commands only use after your installation is done and your pc reboot right after trying to boot into your mac. not during the time you want to boot into installation process.

 

before you start to boot for installation, try this command :

/hp npci=0x2000 PCIRootUID=1 if that doesnt work try PCIRootUID=0 or just use /hp npci=0x2000 or 0x3000 lets see which 1 is working.
