Stuck at Grey screen, can't type in single user mode?
1 1

Question

Hi, first Hackintosh here. 

I've installed via USB and Niresh. I went through the installation process and everything was fine, when done installing it asks to reboot. After that I boot to the Apple logo, screen goes black for a few seconds, then turns grey and I'm stuck there forever. I've tried GraphicsEnabler=No, and yes. I tried to boot into single user mode, but once it runs it's process I am unable to type anything. The text indicator remains solid white, and no keyboard actions are processed. I'm assuming the problem is with my graphics card, I have a GTX 770(rest of the specs below). I was going to follow this guide to attempt fixing it http://www.hackintosh.zone/page/hackintosh/articles/how-to/fix-grey-screen-black-screen-mac-os-x-installation-hackintosh/

Other than that I'm not sure what my problem could be. I'm more than certain it's my GPU. I booted with -x, it got a little farther than the standard boot. It took me to the Apple Logo, a loading bar appeared below it(further than any other try), but then once again we were back at the grey screen. Any help is appreciated. 

Computer specs: 
CPU: Intel Core i5 2500k

SSD/HDD Samsung 840 Pro 250GB. 500GB Seagate HDD
Nvidia GTX 770

Biostar TZ86 motherboard

16GB Patriot Viper Xtreme ram.

Hi, first of all, thanks for the help. 

A simple reinstallation, and reconfiguring of the options solved the problem. Thanks anyway! Now it's on to find a long-range wifi extender compatible with Hackintosh. I'm assuming anything compatible with MAC will work with my Hackintosh? 

That or perhaps I can configure one of my current wifi dongles to work.

I think what I will get is this http://www.asus.com/Networking/PCEAC68/

Gotta wait until payday, and then we will be up and running. Does anyone here know the range? I'm currently using an IDEAwork long range wifi adapter on Windows. Obviously, ASUS SHOULD be better.. But does anyone know for certain? 

 

This is what I currently have for Windows. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA1V00S64887

I'm not sure about the range personally, but I've read some good things about the adapter as a whole. Will probably buy one myself in fact.

 

I have also read a few different comments about it being natively supported. Some users it works fine and appears as an Airport card, however some users have said it doesn't (i.e. this guide): http://www.macbreaker.com/2012/04/most-compatible-wifi-cards-for-your.html (the post is a little outdated)
