Cannot boot installer

Recommended Posts

By disabling EHCI Handoff and HPET now I am at Installing.

Installing on a new HDD with GUID. PT.

Partitioning New HDD with Sierra Zone is PITAss.

Never shows Correct Volume size (Set one and Changes to One after partitioning).

Installing failed 10 times with different combinations, first time "Can not move NVIDIA.kext", after that "Installation failed due to an Error".

No clue beside that.

Tried Chameleon but failed to go to the language selection screen.

Waiting for any help or clue.

USBBusFix=Yes is a chameleon boot-flag, if you want to configure usb settings in clover, You have to look in Options menu

Try kcsuffix=amd1


Try booting with Chameleon bootloader, to initialize chameleon bootloader Keep pressing number 2 while it starts booting from USB

@Niresh I tried both amd and amd1 now as kernel using kcsuffix boot flag, now getting the following error:
Error allocating 0x1655 pages at 0x....c7a000 alloc type 2
Error loading kernel cache (0x9)
Boot failed, sleeping for 10 seconds before exiting...

Currently searching Google to see if I can find an answer but if you know what this is that'd be great. I have already tried with 'nv_disable=1'

Tried booting Chameleon by pressing 2 as you suggested - a couple of times it kept booting to Clover, but one time it went to a black screen and nothing else?

Okay got past that error - it was the "slide=0" default boot flag, removed that. Now stuck on [PCI configuration begin]. Attempting to use the 'PCIRootUID=1' boot flag but using shift causes the P key to repeat a hell of a lot, going to see if I can get around this one.

Will also try booting Chameleon again shortly if I don't get around the key repeat issue in Clover.
