I have the same problem on:


AMD Phenom II 945

4gb DDR2

6870 Saphire


Downloaded the latest 10.8.5 iso on USB stick using TransMac. Upon startup Niresh bootloader popped up, I selected Boot OS X from 10.8.5 or something like that.

for the AMD go to options > you should all kinds of boot flags go there press enter then go all the way to the beginning of the flags type "kernel=amd" -v without qoutes ofcourse and you should boot , had the problem 2 first now im stuck @ the installation screen with a not working keyboard & mouse

The Stuck is Because of Clover Boot-Options Try to Edit Them or Boot Using Chameleon to Boot Using Chameleon You must Press 2 While Booting on Legacy/ Non-UEFI

I also tried installing Niresh Mountain Lion 10.8.5 on my computer.  I tried installing through VirtualBox and keep getting stuck right after this error:


WARNING! IOPlatformPluginUtility : getCPUIDInfo: this is an unknown CPU model 0x3c


I tried using different combos of boot flags such as -v -x -f cpus=1 PCIRootUID=1 npci=0x2000 etc.


My Specs:

Intel i5 4200M w/ Intel HD Graphics 4600

8 GB ram 1 tb hard drive

Lenovo z410


*Also I am booting through VirtualBox in legacy mode as UEFI doesn't virtualize very well with VB.  Any suggestions?

    • @MYLX You should do it via BIOS & I'm glad you made it work
    • Check your BIOS Settings, Enable Executive disable bit in BIOS You have a latest processor (2017 released) you should try Sierra or High Sierra if possible   Sometimes this guide may work
