OS X 10.9 not booting anymore... - Hackintosh Mavericks - Hackintosh Zone Jump to content

Question

I installed Niresh 10.9 without any serious problems. It completed the setup on the desktop successfully and everything went smoothly. Now one day later I tried to boot the machine into OS X, and It won't load. It gets stuck at the apple logo with the spinning circle. I have tried several common bottup flags to get it to work and when I ran it in verbose mode it freezes at a certain point! This is my first hackintosh!

 

Computer name: Dell Inspiron 2330

 

Ram: 4GB DDR RAM

 

Processor: Intel i3 (3.4GHZ)

 

Graphics card: Intel integrated graphics card

 

Please help!!

 

Here is a picture of where verbose mode freezes :( :

Are you sure its after -v -f ?

-v had to force verbose mode and not GUI mode (as in picture).

 

Boot with USB installer but select HDD on menu and use -v -f.

I redid it with the flag you mentioned and this time, it froze and said that the ntfs partitions could not be remounted and that the windows partition was hibernating... Really confused now :/

If it boots with -x -v -f then there is prob from Windows side (do you have dual boot?)

 

Start Windows and shutdown it PROPERLY.

 

Boot again in OSX using -v -f, if its yet refuses to boot try with -x again and see if it boots fine.

 

If everything goes smooth as above then post the pic of "ntfs stuck" screen.

I tried the options you have and it stopped again at the ntfs errors

As a last resort is there anyway I can actually remove niresh form my computer fully, and keep and access my windows partition?

And yes I have a dual boot.

Hmm I suggested you to post a pic.

 

And with -x can you boot fine?

 

If your OSX is on a different partition/drive than Windows then yes you can but ntfs error is not something tough.

 

In 3-4 posts we can solve your issue.

with -x (Safe mode I can't boot fine unfortunately...

 

I don't really need to post a pic as there is nothing that givers any clues sorry :/

 

Basically what happens is a loading bar comes up, and when it's finished about a quarter of the way, it disappears and it continues with the boot (Apple logo and spinning wheel). After some seconds the wheel then freezes and nothing happens. OS X is on a different partition, but I'd prefer not to remove Niresh as I'm a huge fan of it  :)

ok post a pic where you are entering the boot flags (-v -x -f).

 

-v essentially forces verbose mode and so no apple logo or GUI in front.

    • I have downloaded your mite. Zone.dmg 4 times but it is not working on transmac , can't create bootable usb
    • hi   ok I have been struggling with this for the past 2 weeks. I have installed and uninstalled Sierra more times than I can count and its been driving me potty .... have only cracked it today.  what you need to do is download create a vanilla usb stick with Sierra.  in order to do this I downloaded Yosemite.zone from the distroes  and created a usb stick.  the installed Yosemite once I was in Yosemite  ( the gfx work in this disto) I downloaded a copy of Sierra from the store..  you will have to search the net for the direct link.. I then created a bootable Sierra usb stick using unit beast, I selected legacy boot loader with no gfx injected. I then installed Sierra from this. once Sierra is installed boot from the usb and select your installed Sierra. iff all goes well you should have a working Sierra install with the gfx acceleration working.  I think the problem is with the type of Mac that Sierra thinks it is with everything working my system info is showing a iMac 27" 14.2 .  I have tried installing a boot loader on the main drive with no success so as a workaround you will have to use your usb stick. pics below of my system info  I hope this helped.  https://photos.app.goo.gl/PToVZOxq0UN9c5BR2 I also just noticed whilst I was trying to get thing working I copied a modified andradeonx4000.kext into the root drive of the Sierra stick. I don't know if this has had any effect on the install might be worth doing the same thing andy
    • Hello, I installed macOS High Sierra 10.13 on my Windows laptop. I installed them so I could dual boot them. It took me 2 day's to perfectionize the macOS because of the .kext files. All the Kext files went good except for graphic and Synaptics. If I install Synaptics, I can move the mouse but it zooms in and it gets stuck back into the corners. So I only installed Generic Touch Pad driver and that works fine. 

      Anyhow I thought everything was perfect until I opened Safari yesterday which came with glitches it stutters when scrolling. It's something like this https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=graphic+glitches+hackintosh only worse. I searched a lot but I found nothing on AMD drivers for my laptop. I really like this macOS, and I want it to be perfect. Is that possible? Maybe with another macOS type/version? O'yeah, when I log in, the vertical lines appear as in the youtube video is that normal or is that because I don't have an graphic driver installed? I really hope on some positive answers, and I thank everyone for his time to read and react on this. Thank you

    • Hello, I got macOS Sierra to work on my vostro 230 and I need to find drivers. I mostly just need graphics drivers (just integrated G41 graphics) and Broadcom Network drivers. > PLEASE DON'T GIVE ME AN EXPLANATION JUST GIVE ME DRIVERS. < CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 2.93 GHZ GPU: I could switch between a EVGA 610 or Intel G41 graphics. RAM: 4 GB DDR3 1333 MHZ. PSU: I don't know if this makes a difference but I got this Vostro when the PSU failed and I put a Optiplex 360 PSU in it.
