Hello, Sir @bilal2404

i am sorry to hear you had problems with hackintosh

Your model is: dell optiplex gx 620 pentium D 820 3gb ram nvidia 512 ddr2 gs 8400

it seems to be a old model

i recommend to upgrade your videocard to a nvidia geforce 600 series with 1 gb ram mac os will run smoother. in case 512 mb is very low but i dont know how mac os x runs on your laptop since mac os x mavericks is not a operating system when you need high end pc so thats good but your ram seems to be ok,

Recommended ram is also: 4 gb but i do not have problems when i also use 3 gb ram bc my pc does have 8 but i had a old pc which had 3 gb i could also run mac smooth on pc with 3 gb ram


So i dont understand the problem very good so what for black screen do you see a cursor flickering or is the screen just black and it does nothing


Do you use Clover or Chameleon as bootloader: if you use clover the problem may is that its missing OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 which you can search a tutorial for how to install OsxAptioFix2Drv

To install the following file (OsxAptioFix2Drv) you need clover configurator.

Maybe upload a ss or pm it to me so i can look maybe i understand the error different so do u know whats causing the error but you can't find the solution may also say to me if it logs/outputs on the screen a error and it hangs also report it to me or to @Niresh may you not able to pm him bc he only responds on forums.

If it gives you only a black screen it must be a file thats missing or the pc can't find the kernel in s/l/k system/library/kernels/kernel to boot up or you missing a requird file dependency to boot up mac os installer i hope you'll respond fast if the error dissapeared in one time and you didn't know why it maybe could be a boot bug or your usb flash drive was not detected anymore


Also try if you have windows try with transmac to burn the files again on the usb 

For mac see tutorials on hackintosh.


If i couldn't help you soon and you have the problem still try vanilla method see tutorials on there are some tutorials out there that may help. 

sorry for my english

I am a dutch person, i will try to improve my english to talk on internet and in real to improve my social envoirement with people to talk so my english will be better.

No, There is no cursor flickering just a black screen

When I try to boot mavericks with -v bootflag the setup begins with all the text  loading  but takes about 2-3 sec on system/library/extension m kext , loads 2 more lines and then resolution changes from 720x something to 1024x 768 black screen with nothing on it , i even left it for bout 2 hours but no use, thinking that it might be loading.

i tried some boot flags like GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No  PCIRootUID=1/0 etc but still no success. I have tried using the on board graphics but still the same issue

Im new to this hackintosh stuff and don't know much about it, i'll even try to upload pics of what is going on with the system. Searched the internet and got to know that gs 8400 is hackintosh compatible 


and if i try to boot straight into the installer, the system ends up with a grey stretched apple logo screen

Did you tried vanilla way


is your laptop running smooth for macOS?

already tried to boot with safe mode

maybe you are selecting a other kernel or you just need to add the bootflag -x means safe mode boot


Or try the vanilla way

Your model seems to be a old model try also to add bootlfag npci=0x2000

otherwise you will be stuck at pci configuration begin

i do always boot with -v if i want to boot to installer

if that didn’t work

try to disable prelinkedkernelcache by adding bootflag: UseKernelCache=No

or if no bootflag either work then its maybe a corrupted kernel and maybe macos can’t boot to the installer.


Also let me know which bootloader you use? and which version latest or older.

Did you tried to reburn all the files on the usb with transmac on windows maybe that could fix corrupted or missing files.


or you need a custom kernel for dell i dont know which kernel but i will take my time to search for you if you need a custom kernel.


Next time include a screenshot.
