Yosemite issues after installation
1 1


Hello ladies and gentlemen,


I'll start by providing my pc specs.


I'm using:


ASUS M5A97 R2.0 Mobo ( UEFI ) - I used clover UEFI


AMD FX 8120 @ 3.1 GHz (Default with Turbo Core Disabled)

Radeon HD6850

USB Keyboard and Mouse

1 TB 3,5" Hard Drive



So, I've downloaded Niresh Yosemite and burned it into the USB Drive.

I've tried several articles for preparing my mobo settings.

Disabling Virtualization and Secure Boot didn't seem to work.

I only managed to get to installation screen by going into BIOS Settings and loading optimized defaults, then selecting USB Drive for boot.


After that I managed to get to installation screen with these boot flags:





Didn't get any errors during the installation.

After the installation when I boot from the hard drive. I got stuck with a grey screen and a spinning colorful cursor ( Not the one with lines before kernel panic ).

This is the usual spinning cursor of Mac OS.

During installation I chose npci=0x2000 and verbose mode tin addition to originally ticked ones to avoid typing them everytime.



My problems are:


1- I can only see the desktop by using -x and booting from the usb stick. Every time I have to do this.

2 - My Ethernet doesn't work. During launch with verbose mode and -x, I see Realtek8111 kext not loaded error. ( It doesn't gets stuck there , just continues to desktop) Did the deleting network devices and rebooting after installation trick, didn't work.

3 - I can't seem to mount any drives or partitions other than the one that Yosemite is installed on. ( I'm not sure if safe mode could be causing this, apologies if it is).

4- When I normally start my pc with Main drive selected as boot drive, it gets in to a restart loop.

5- Audio is not working.


I tried to copy Multibeast to my pc after installation but I couldn't get any of my usb drives to mount.

My Ethernet is not working, hence I can't download it.


Thanks for taking your time to read this.

I hope I can get a clear answer here.


Cheers, R.
