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

Question

Miaitza    1

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!

@ Also make sure you're using the USB .dmg image burnt to the USB. If you burnt the ISO to the USB, it won't work.

@ 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.

If you use 2 usb drives, don't forget to change the order in the BIOS. The first to boot is the one with iBoot. If you DID try that and it doesn't work, the best thing to do (as Aman said) is to write iBoot on a CD/DVD.

 

It worked for me.

    • Hi guys, managed to make a hackintosh and everything is going great (Wifi, cpu ECT)   But it's pretty damn slow, i tried one of my favorite lightweight games to test (The Ultimate Doom) and it could barely run THAT! This is my first time and i have no idea how to get my 8570 to work.. Probably should have read a bit, eh? Lol.   And no I don't plan on using my hackintosh for gaming, but god so slow..   Thanks, help would be very appreciated. Edit: It's the dedicated version btw, and in about my mac I see "Graphics Display 3 MB" maybe the issue?  
    • Trying to boot to the installer but I get instant reboot after the following: I am using the following flag (I tried a variation - I need USBBusFix=Yes otherwise it fails even earlier): All my USB devices turn off just before it reboots, so I'm guessing it loses connection to the USB install media - but I can't work out why it's disabling all the USB's. My motherboard is an AsRock Killer Fatal1ty 990FX.
    • Saludos!   Tengo el mismo error (RAM a 667mhz), con una placa base ASUS (y mi cpu es el fx 6300).   Lograste solucionarlo?
    • Hi guys. Well, this is my second day of troubles, I touched everything, I installed max like 5 times in the same day, trying to figure out things and well. My Mac it display my graphic card on the #About this Mac tab With 2047MB ( So I guess all is right ) I installed the latest nvida drivers and on clover I activated the NvidaWeb. The problem is the resolution. Max resolution allowed is 1280 x 1024 and 800 x 600. I used to boot with nvd_drv 1 with nvd dry 0, I used to boot with all that things, and without them.  BUT No way to fix the resolution. Someone knows what-s going wrong and how can I fix it? Bdw im using iMac14,2 and OS X Sierra 10.12.3 Im connecting to the screen with DVI adapter. ( Maybe that causes the problem ) But it shows Im running 2047 MB so... idk why I can't change resolution. Thanks! ================================= SOLVED EDIT: Hi guys, in Display Resolution, I just set it in "Default for display" and after that pressing "THE WINDOWS BUTTON KEY, IN MY CASE, IDK WHAT KEY IS THAT IN MAC KEYBOARD, I THINK THE CONTROL ONE OR IDK" PRESSING that key I selected Scaled, and it appears more options and resolutions. There is a video on youtube about that called "Mac OS X Display Resolution" If someone has the same trouble.
