HP Compaq 6730s not booting into installer

Recommended Posts

I have a HP Compaq 6730s with specs as follows:
Intel Celeron T1600 @ 1,66Ghz
250GB Internal HDD for OSX (Have 500GB for Windows 8.1)
1280x800 Mobile Intel 4 Series Chipset
Broadcom 4300 Series WiFi Card
Marvell Yukon 88E8042 LAN Adapter
I have successfully installed Mavericks to the 250GB HDD from a friend's PC, but cannot even boot it. It keeps restarting every time it gets to:
Starting Darwinx86_64
Boot Args [i can't read this part, it restarts immediately]
I have tried the following boot flags for the pre-installed system:
"Kernel Cache"=/hp -v
"Kernel Cache"=/hp -v -x
hp -v
hp -v -x
"Kernel Cache"=/hp -v GraphicsEnabler=No
"Kernel Cache"=/hp -v npci=0x3000
Every time it gives me the same error.
I also can't boot the installer from the USB drive I created in this tutorial: http://www.macbreaker.com/2014/01/install-osx-mavericks-on-pc-with-niresh.html
It just starts booting the old OSX install that doesn't work.
Thanks in advance for any help.

    • 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:

      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?
