FIXED: Os X Mountain Lion 10.8.5 Will Not Boot With My Amd Fx8350
0

Question

Hello I upgraded my PC with a new mother board and CPU, I can not get Mountain Lion 10.8.5 to boot what so ever I get the apple boot screen with the loading icon after a minute I get a circle with a line down it, I've tried all the flags that i've found on other forums with people with the same problem and nothing is working.

I booted using -v and it gets stuck on something saying waiting for root or something and it will respect the error like its trying to loads something.

amd -x -v

amd64 -x -v

amdfx -x -v

So using one of these will fix my Keyboard and mouse problem as I was using the amdfx -v to boot last time it worked but no response from mouse andkeyboard

If I load using amdfx -x -v it freezes same with the other flags amd amd64 etc, if I boot using amd64 -x I get a kernel panic same with other flags if I boot with amdfx it boots to install but no mouse and keyboard same with other flags, I've looked on the bios on USB section changed a few things still nothing would be so grateful if someone could resolve my problem. Thanks

The os is picking up the mouse as when I push the power button once the disk has loaded to the install screen I get a white screen witch is the sleep thing if I click the mouse it disappears but the cursor or install dose not respond if you have Skype I could show you, I've also tried the flags USBBugFix=Yes etc still same unless I'm typing something in wrong?
