Hi, my laptop won't boot Mavericks from USB.

Recommended Posts

So, as the title says, I can't boot it from USB (tryed 3 different USB and all my usb ports). I wrote Niresh's 10.9 on my usb using WIN32 Disk Imager, however my bios is set up to boot from usb (it works with ubuntu/windows).

I was able to install Mavericks on a VM.

What could I do?

Thanks in advance!

@ That's a known issue with Win32Disk Imager. Use Transmac instead for writing the file this time. 

 

 

Download iBoot, burn it to DVD. Boot from it and select Mavericks-USB from menu.

 

 

Wrote it again using Transmac-nothing changed

Used iBoot(it's on another USB, is it a problem?)- same thing.

@ Nope it's not a problem. You need two USBs - One for the Installer and one for iBoot. Boot with the iBoot USB / CD then (remove the CD if you are using it) insert you Niresh installer USB and press F5, the Installation icon should show up.

Thank you for your reply, now i have to USBs, one with Mavericks and one with iBoot(wrote using transmac) but it doesn't show any menu when i have the iBoot one plugged in, it's not booting from it.

I'm sorry for my bad english.

Although Devonic is right, but plz burn iBoot to DVD, its slow but more reliable.

Plugin your Mavericks USB and put DVD into drive. BOOT USING DVD DRIVE (IN TO iBoot), and it will sure list your USB.

 

Select it.

 

I am sure it should work. There is nothing with DVD mode that it will refuse to boot.

I will try this as soon as I have a DVD. I've also tryed to use Boot Disk Utility to have Clover on my second USB and it boots into that menu but it doesn't show me my Marevicks USB when I plug it in.

    • 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.
