I try 10.9. Create USB and...

without flags - restart pc

with flags:

amd -v

amd64 -v

amdfx -v

Next I add flags: UseKernelCache=No -x

... every time the same:

SMC: successfully initialized

and stop.

Any idea?

What do you mean? I have AMD CPU.

I just mean that Intel is more Compatible with Hackintoshing than AMD

@robertszkola:

 

i am using the same motherboard and encountered a similar error.

 

could you please post your bios-settings and bootflags with which you managed to get it to work?

 

if i am correct, the 'bless could not install..' error is no big deal it just means that the disk is not set as bootable, which is no problem since we are using clover or chameleon.

 

still i am stuck at first boot.

 

greetings
