Installation Stuck on Gray Screen with Apple Logo
8 8

Question

Hi,

 

I'm trying to install latest released Yosemite hackintosh by www.hackintosh.zone on my Lenovo Y5070-C.

 

This is my system details:

 

- Intel Core i7 4710HQ 2.50GHz

- 16GB Ram DDR3

- 1TB HDD

- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 4GB

 

So, I think my laptop supports it perfectly!

 

When I'm trying to boot the installation process of Yosemite hackintosh with /haswell command, a new gray screen with an Apple logo appears; This is not the problem! the problem is when the progress bar (below the Apple logo) stuck on the middle of loading the installation process!

 

Anyway, I tried to boot the installation with commands like -x and -v and other stuff. After entering these commands, my laptop just reboots instantly! The only command that doesn't cause any reboot, is /haswell which has the problem I mentioned.

 

BTW, I just followed this instruction:

http://www.hackintosh.zone/page/hackintosh/articles/yosemite-hackintosh-installation-instructions-guide-and-videos-for-amd-amdfx-intel-haswell-hp-laptops-common-pc/

And I exactly followed the rules. Before I begin this installation, I completely erased my HDD and I didn't even make any partition for it.

 

So... What should I do exactly? I need to install hackintosh badly! :(

@ Your the best! :)

 

Actually I tried flags /haswell -x and my problem finally solved! after entering the flag you mentioned, I finally relieved from the "progress bar stucking" issue; but I still stuck on the language choosing section.

 

Anyway, there is another problem, which I'm still don't know what to do! I've installed Hackintosh Zone perfectly; when I'm trying to boot it, there is another gray screen appears and this time, I have Hackintosh Zone logo in red and progress bar below it, which is stucking again!

 

Boot screen is somehow graphical and selective, so I can't really type anything in it. I can only choose how the OS boots; and trust me! I've chosen every single option, and every single of them has some issues! the only one that redirects me to that screen I mentioned is the simple boot!

 

Other boot options that I can choose are "Boot Verbose", "Boot Ignore Caches", "Boot Single User".

 

I appreciate if anyone can help me with this kind of situation :x

@Vendetta

just thought you said you installed it ok in the end but now youhave the grey screen again when booting use the /haswell -v -f kext-dev-mode=1 -s

when at bash type what it say above like /sbin/ xxx/-fsck press enter then 2nd /sbin/xxx/ -rw then enter i think it is then type grafix backupall press enter reboot then retry without -s that should remove graphics kext and use the vesa graphics no gc/qi ect but once booted install the graphics ect you need and let nirsh scripts run at 1st boot till safari opens its self

See, I have a screen like this:

(The image is not mine - I just found it on the internet, but this is exactly what I'm dealing with)

 

Now, when I type /haswell, this is the reaction:

 

"Can't find /haswell

 Press a key to continue"

I tried, but it still doesn't find this kernel.

 

I don't have any OS on that comp. I completely format the HDD to try Yosemite on it.

@ Do you still have that modded installation? 
I'm having the same issue which no bootflag seems to solve. Maybe your modded install will fix it :)

After many hours to find an issue and re installing Yosemite Hackintosh , i was very perplex...

But i found this issue on the net :

1/ Boot -s. -v :

Type: mount -uw /
Type: cd /System/Library/Extensions
Type: mkdir intel_back
Type: mv AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelF* intel_back/
Type: touch ../Extensions

Reboot :

2/ I use the following boot flags :

Enjoy !
