Endless White Screen
1 1

Question

Hello ! I am new here. I just got installed Yosemite 10.10.1 on my pc. However i cannot seem to get past the white screen with spinning beach ball. The only thing that gets me passed it is this: -v -f -x npci=0x2000 but this gets me in safe boot.

 

I have also tried other boot flags but when i dont include "-x" it does not work..... And when i use -x it takes me to safe boot.... :( i dont know what else to do, please help.

 

My configuration is:

CPU: AMD FX 8350

MB:  ASUS Crosshair V Formula Z

GPU: R9 290X (works out of the box as HD 8xxx series)

For me, it was a chipset kext issue. However you can try to boot with the following boot flags: -v npci=0x2000

go to Insanelymac.com and under downloads section is Kexts... get the "AMD replace kexts for Yosemite"

 

I have the exact same system you have and this is only thing that will fix your graphics and voodoohd sound

I will try this right away, i hope it works though.... I will be back with the result

 

 

Update: I got through the white screen, but i still don't have sound, any ideas how to fix ?

I have the same problem , just with different hardware.

 

My CPU/GPU is  Intel Celeron 530 (with Intel HD Graphics),

it works in safe mode , but is recognize as Intel HD 2000, with would be the CPU of the Core i3-2xxx Sandybridge CPUs. Celeron 530 is basically a down-sized Core i3-2xxxx.

What solution do you suggest? Edit chameleon.bootlist? Intel HD-Graphics-Pactcher? Install a kext, an which one?

 

I hope there is a solution, i havent been able to find any Intel HD Graphics 2nd gen Sandybridge drivers/kext yet.
