Unable to boot to installer...

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I recently found out about Niresh's 10.9 distro and decided I wanted to try it on my machine (specs below). Unfortunately, even with UEFI BIOS setting correct, I am unable to boot to the installer via the created USB. For some reason, it stays on the blinking cursor and nothing. I can't even get to the flags or anything. There is no activity light flashing on the USB either.

 

I have followed the guide many times and still unable to boot. I only have access to a Windows machine so any Mac method would be useless for me.

 

Thanks.

Download iBoot. Burn it to CD/DVD. Boot with it and then select your USB.

 

I don't know why I didn't think of that. Thanks, I will try that!  :)

 

BTW Should I download the haswell version or the normal version? I'm presuming haswell but wouldn't 10.9 already have haswell suppport?

 

Was sure if you could boot USB devices through it. I will get back to you on this.

As your processor is Haswell so you should download Haswell though I have not checked personally. Far I have tested i5 3rd generation with normal iBoot and it works.

You 3rd doubt has same reply as above, Yes I have tested it on i5 3rd gen.

Apologies for the long delay, I have been busy.

 

I think that maybe the USB I am using or the tools or even the ISO is giving me issues. Simply because I cannot boot through iBoot as it doesn't show nor can I boot normally.

    • Hello everyone,  I'm trying to install High Sierra (with AMD support) on my AMD 4500m Lenovo G505s laptop. When booting from Clover in EFI with i get some really fast screen log then the pc reboots. Now, i know there isn't a way you could help me without some info/logs, unless i'm missing a major malfunction known on these kind of laptops, so, do you know a way i could prevent it from rebooting in order to at least understand what is causing this problem? Do you think even trying to put OSX on this laptop is worth it? Thank you.
    • Hello, i am trying to install High Sierra on my ASUS X75VB but i am getting multiple errors with the ACPI.
      I believe it is CPU related?

      Mainboard: HM76 (X75VB SOCKET 0)
      CPU: Intel Core i5 3320m (Not the original CPU of this laptop!)
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000 & NVIDIA 2GB Geforce 740M
      RAM: DDR3 8GB
      Storage: 120GB SSD (SATA-2)

      I have used the DSDT.aml & SSDT.aml from the following resource:
       https://github.com/xxx10101xxx/ThinkPad-X230-macOS/tree/master/i5-3320M

      My config.plst can be found here:

      Thanks in advance!

    • I have Yosemite Zone working on Virtualbox fine.  After downloading High Sierra Zone there is only a dmg and no ISO.  I tried converting the dmg with hdiutil but it goes to 8GB and I get "no bootable media" in Virtualbox.  Has anyone been able to do this yet?
