Trying to install 10.9 on Toshiba Satellite A55-5384

Question

Hi!

 

I am a first timer with hackintosh so please be patient. Thank you for your monumental effort to keep this going!

 

I tried to install maverick on my new toshiba satellite a55-5384 laptop (i3 with 4GB RAM). Other forums said that this laptop is compatible.

 

I created the usb drive and could install the maverick, but after installation it would not boot. So I made GraphicsEnabler=No during boot and it gave HPET not available panic. I looked into boot seetings of the laptop there is no HPET settings. So once again I tried to install and this time I clicked on customize button and I enabled the disabler kext and unchecked the HPET kext. It went to install but it never came out.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

What other boot flags have you tried? -x -v?

 

Yes I tried both the flags and also PCIRootUID=0

 

Thanks

When you say:"It went to install but it never came out."

What do you mean? it never finished the install?

Also my Laptop doesn't have HPET in the bios but I could install Mavericks hmm.

Yes it happened when I enabled the disabler kext in customize, before that every time it completed the installation (tried numerous times with different settings) and every time it completed but failed in the boot (like I mentioned above).

 

Maybe there is a secret sauce somewhere :)

    • I previously installed yosemite on my pc. It worked well. But I can only boot the yosemite by cliking F10 advanced boot option and have to select my Hard drive. It didn/t boot automatically. So I just mounted the EFI folder and replaced the files from the original EFI I got from a link. Probelm started. So I planned to install Yosemite again. Keyboard not worked. So I boot back windows 10 and replace everything. But when I try to install yosemite again, sill I'm facing the probelm. Keyboard not working at selecting Yosemite zone screen. Keyboard is well functioning at BIOS screen, advanced boot option screen, even in my windows 10. But it freeze at the below screen. I tried everything, changed my Boot mode to UEFI and Legacy, reset CMOS by removing CMOS battery, restarted minimum 50 times, Changed my keyboard from USB to PS2, changed my USB keyboard port to every port. Please help me to solve this.   My System Config :   Intet i3-2120 CPU@3.30GHz 1 TB Hard drive 8 GB Ram 2GB GT610 graphic card Keyboard freeze at this screen.
