Screen goes dark after boot on Dell Precision 390

Recommended Posts

Update: I managed to successfully install OS X by plugging the USB drive at the back (I was using the front port). However, once I log into OS X, I see a gray screen with Apple's logo for a few minutes, then the screen turns black. I tried GraphicsEnabler=No and got the same result. Any ideas on what I should do?

 

Hi all,

 

I have a Dell Precision 390 workstation with the following specs:

 

  • Intel Core2Quad Q6700 2.66Ghz CPU
  • Intel 975X motherboard chipset
  • 4GBs RAM
  • nVidia Geforce GTS 250
  • Integrated Broadcom 5754 Gigabit Ethernet network controller
  • Integrated High Definition Audio (Rev 1.0 Specification) with Sigmatel STAC9200 High Definition Audio CODEC and Intel ICH7R AC97/ High Definition digital controller
 
Every time I try to install Niresh's OS X 10.9.0, I can successfully boot into the USB device, erase the drive using Disk Utility, and customize the installation. However, once I start the installation, it will stall after 2 mins, and then it gives me an error saying Install Failed, as can be seen here

I redownloaded the OS X file several times, and I also tried Niresh's OS X 10.8.5, and I got the same error every time. 
 
Is there anything I can do to fix this problem? 
 
Thank you

    • guys please help me .....................im stucked at apple logo while installing im using hp laptop core i5 7200u 6gb ram amd radeon R5 M430
    • I have working audio, graphics and network on this 10.13  Now store has sent me "security update" which I believe is 10.13.3.  Has anyone done this via store? What do I need to do before I install it? I have issues loading EFI so have to always manually mount it (Clover configurator and EFI mounter both fail) but using terminal and command "open /efi" I am able to mount and make changes to my config.plist too.   
    • Hi guys, I try to install Mac OS X Yosemite on my computer, but... i get stuck at the logo (when i boot it) + i see a bar, who won't charge. Can you give me a solution?   Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual  CPU  E2180  @ 2.00GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.0GHz Memory: 2048MB RAM    User DPI Setting: Using System DPI  System DPI Setting: 96 DPI (100 percent) Display Card name: NVIDIA GeForce 210  Manufacturer: NVIDIA Chip type: GeForce 210 DAC type: Integrated RAMDAC  
    • Just to Add I used My windows machine with TransMac to wipe and build the install (including USB). I only used the clover installer I forgot that it could switch to chameleon.
