niresh Mountain Lion install on Asus Maximus IV Genez Gen3 - won't boot after successful install

Question

Norfer    0

So, first of all thank you to Niresh for all of his hard work. I ended up here after TonyMacs forum users made me feel terrible.

 

My build:

Asus Maximus IV Gene Z Gen 3 mobo

i7 2600k

32 GB patriot DDr3 ram

EVGA GTX560ti

Seagate 500 gb 7200 HD

 

I burned the ML distro to a DVD and made it all the way through installation. I installed kexts etc during the os x installer (including bootlaoder etc). Previously using multibeast I couldn't even get to the OS X installer.

 

After rebooting and removing the DVD the bootloader didn't kick in, even if I select the drive with OSX installed on it. I can only get os x to load with the DVD inserted. It was freezing on the white background with infinite spinning wheel (I let it sit for an hour). So I used -v to see what was up. It makes it through several screens and freezes at this screen (see attached). I'm not sure what kind of boot flag magic could get it past this I've used -f -x GraphicsEnabler etc.

 

 I did some research about my board, evidently some people flash the BIOS with a patch because of power management issues. Obviously I'm worried about having to do that and wondering if it's entirely necessary.

 

Please see link for the screen I hit...

 

Thanks in advance.

An update for what it's worth.  I used the Boot Disk utility and ran it with the default args (-v and debug 0x100). It got past the throttling mtu error but stopped at "9-error reporting banks".

 

Here is the system info list from my machine.

Might do a full reinstall of Niresh Mavericks and see if that gets me any farther.

 

Thanks

Success!!

 

Maybe my previous posts were too noobtastic. Since no one has responded, I'll just post my steps here in case it helps anyone else.

 

So, I finally managed to path the BIOS with the 3603 version from Bios Repo. I used RUFUS to burn a usb stick and renamed the file with Asus Bios renamer utility and installed it with Bupdater (both available on the support page of my mobo).

 

I installed the Niresh 10.8.5 Distro to a second HD (my first HD is running Win 7). I  installed Clover from the customize menu in the OSX installer but it doesn't show up. So I have to use a Clover bootloader on a USB stick to get OSX running.

 

I first had to boot into safe mode using -x and let the Niresh installer finish all of its magic.

 

Now it boots just fine from the USB stick. Everything seems to work, Audio, graohics card even sleep mode. The only thing is the network speed is really slow over ethernet. Going to try to reinstall a couple of kexts and see if that works.

 

If anyone has any ideas about the ethernet let me know.

 

Thanks

Ok, so I'm updating this thread really for my own edification. After reporting my success on Tonymacs and not realizing that mentioning distros is taboo I got my account permanently suspended, hilarious.

 

Anyway, I reinstalled the whole OS using a USB stick of Niresh Mavericks and the whole thing pretty much worked out of the gate? Which is amazing. I have sound, ethernet, graphics card and sleep are all working. I Geekbenched it at around 11900 which is close to my Win 7 geekbench of 12500.

 

My only hitch is the bootloader still isn't installed. I assume it's because it is installed to my OSX disk. So when I choose that disk as the boot disk it  get this message that says "boot0: GPT boot0: GPT boot0: done". Then it just loads my old windows 7 install. I guess I need to install the bootloader to my windows MBR partition. I'm considering using Slytherin to do so. If anyone has explicit instructions on how to do that please let me know. I'm concerned about breaking my windows boot. 

 

I might just have to live off of USB flash drive for now.

 

Thanks

    • Hey!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM com.apple.audio.DriverHelper[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named com.apple.bluetoothaudiod." repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)
