Root device UUID is... Please help!

Recommended Posts

Hello, dear community!

This is only my second post here. If I do something wrong - please, sorry!

Since my PC is based on Haswell - i7-4770k, I switched back to my attempts to install Yosemite. As far as I understand, that Mac OS X version of that time can be more friendly for my CPU because of native kernel support.

I already tried a lot of things, including Niresh's images. So, with Niresh High Sierra I have a problem with reboot - at first 1-3 seconds after pressing "Boot Mac OS X & Install" in Clover. Nothing helped and no any info at all even with -v -x. It also doesn't matter, whether I choose "Don't reboot on panic" or not - always reboot. But I was surprised that Niresh High Sierra has a lot of configs (config.plist). Reboot problem was with default config, config.plist, with some other configs I got black screen (if using -v). 


So, what I did with Niresh's Yosemite:

At start, as with many other images, I got a black screen problem. Then I "copy-pasted" configs from Niresh High Sierra to my flash with Yosemite and I got a progress! :) But again I'm still before installation process)) Now I Have "root device UUID is xxxx-xxxx.xxxx..."

My configuration:

MSI Gaming 3 (Intel Z97 chipset, Audio - Realtek ALC1150, Network - Killer E2205), i7-4770k (Haswell), 16gb (2x8Gb) Corsair DDR3, Gigabyte nVidia 1070, clean OCZ SSD 240gb (just initialised in GPT, that's all) and a Samsung display connected to 1070 via HDMI.


How to solve problem with root device? I understand that problem is somewhere in config.plist. Clover configurator is a little bit hard for me - I just don't know what to do, what to choose, regarding to my problem.

Here is a screenshot, under spoiler.

Thank you!

    • Hello, First of all, I'm starting with my pc configuration,    Processor: Core i3-6100 Motherboard: G1 Sniper B7 with 8GB Ram. GPU: AMD Radeon R7 370 So, I want to make my PC in Hackintosh. Is it meet Hackintosh compatibility? And which version should I go with like( Sierra, High Sierra etc.) with Process? I need your help. Thanks in Advance                                                                                                                                                                             
    • I wasn't being lazy, I looked through my whole bios and I couldn't find all the setting you are telling me to change, but I still found some of them. Once I change the settings, what should I do?
    • When I unzip Restore High Sierra I just get the .pkg. I'm not about to install the pkg on my main HD unless I know what it's going to do. 
    • Niresh, first of all, thank you for your help. I can't disable the NVIDIA GPU, even on the BIOS settings, there is no such option. I have even looked on the manufacturer help fórum, there is nothing in that regard. Is there a way to make these DSDT patches on your release? Could you make a guide or a video of it? I tried looking at some guides on, but it's too complicated for me (and also, I don't have a running version of MacOS on my computer).
