Maveriks on i7 Hashwell keeps rebooting

Recommended Posts

I don't seem to have any kind of success getting this to work and I've spend hours and hours on forums and blogs. At this point any piece of advice would be helpful. I'm trying to install the latest Niresh release on my laptop. Here is the configuration:
Laptop ASUS N750JV-T4042D

Processor: Intel Core i7-4700HQ, Haswell/ID8C49, 2,4 GHz, 3,4 GHz Turbo
Motherboard Chipset: Mobile Intel HM86 Chipset
Graphics (GPU): NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M, 4GB DDR3-1600
Network Devices: Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11 a/b/g/n 2x2
RAM: 8GB DDR 3, 1600 MHz
Sound: SonicMaster, Bang & Olufsen ICEpower 2.1
HDD: 1TB, 5400 rpm

Others:Bluetooth 4.0, card reader, webcam
I've checked online and my laptop is supposed to work with OS X Mavericks but now I'm not so sure. Is this compatible?
I'm using the ISO version on a DVD and after I get to the boot screen and use -v to continue I get the following screens (first s1 then s2) and then it just restarts and that's it. It keeps doing that every time. (This happens before the installation)

Thank you for your answer.


I tried your suggestion and got another error. Printscreen attached. After I press a key it goes back to the boot screen.

I tried that too and got the same screen as in my previous post but then I noticed you typed XCPM and in the download section I remembered it was XPCM so I switched to that and typed the following command:

xpcm-free -v -f -x 

and I didn't get that error anymore. A lot of data was appearing on the screen and after 3 - 4 pages or so I got the s4.jpg screen and then the s5 and s6.




and then:

s5 and s6

Yeh my mistake :P When you get this screen, press space bar 3-5 times.


Actually xpcm and xcpm both are flags and i interchanged one for other. xcpm is a flag for pathed kernel.


Happy hacking.

Ok, it worked. I have installed and I'm just one step away from promised land :D


After the install I have restarted and got the boot screen with the Maveriks partition. I chose that but it got stuck at the Apple logo.


When I installed I used the following settings. Considering my laptop configuration in the initial post can you look at the following screens and tell me what would you have done different in the settings before installing? and what should I do now being stuck at the Apple logo? thanks!




Apple logo stuck:



P.S. I apologize for the quality of the screens.

Start with -v -f (small f and not capital F)


Get a pic where it stuck.


Then try to boot with

-x -v -f


If it boots then :

Goto About This mac->More Info->System Report->Graphics/Display and get a screenshot.

Post it back.

    • I booted from the USB, selected "Yosemite zone", but this brings me back to the original problem. It is freezing on the hackintosh logo. Is there any way to solve this.
    • Well, the pkg is beginning to install High Sierra on my SSD, but then stops with the error code "could not be installed on this computer" 
    • I followed your tutorials which seems to be 1000% easy as its usually around the same as TonyMac, except your installs requires less to do and youve done most of the work too the package which makes it installing for us very easy. Now, the pic below shows a whole bunch of errors and I dont know why. Ive searched these forums and just like the title here, there is none which is odd, because from your tutorials, this shouldnt happen and it seems no one else is running into this problem, HOWEVER, if they did post something like this, Im 1, looking for the fix on high sierra, not sierra or tammy or roger or lutherin, 2 they need to check their titles again because its not helping anyone. I will say I did try installing Sierra Hackintish Zone version and it works all the way up to right after it installs, it tells me "it cannot be installed on this computer", SO....sigh, idk       So, to conclude, I do appreciate the devs here and much respect. Thanks for doing this. But guys, please help a bruh out and tell me how to fix this. Im using windows 10 as my main so do not tell me to go to do nothing on a mac, its the whole point of me coming here is to hackintosh. I do follow instructions fairly           well consider I teach Programming to the Military. My god bless this post soul too tbh <3       
    • Hello, I want to know what I have to do to install Kexts, use clover configurator, install bootloader, change resolution and how to use multibeast according to my hardware. I'm new to this mac configuration process. For now my hackintosh is pure, with no driver installed wifi, ethernet, graphics etc .. Sometimes when I start hackinstosh gives the Kernel Panic and stops loading on the apple screen, but I reboot and load normally. And also after a few minutes using the macOS it freezes the screen. I used the Hackintosh Zone Niresh Sierra because it was the only one that successfully installed on my notebook. My hardware is: Notebook Samsung Expert x23 Intel HD Graphics 5500 I5-5200U Processor Nvidia Geforce 910M 2GB 8 GB RAM HDD 1TB Bluetooth
