install success niresh 10.9.0, but post install bootloader issues. [amdfx,asus mobo]

Question

Hi there.

 

So i've recently succeeded in installing osx 10.9.0 and even updated through 10.9.2 with niresh's software.  Great job and thanks very much.

 

Sadly i've had no success with bootloader installation, largely due to non-standard uefi bios.

 

before I continue i'll note i'm running a custom build i made myself recently and specs follow:

 

mobo: asus sabertooth 990fx r2.0 (runs ami uefi bios, can run chameleon with csm + disabled secure boot)

proc: amd fx-8350 8-core 4.0GHz

Graphics: saphire vapor-x amd radeon R9 280x OC 3GB GDDR5

 

running the install works using:

amdfx arch=x86_64 ncpi=0x2000 GraphicsEnabler=YES -v

 

Moving onto the problem:

 

post install, clover (in uefi mode) cannot boot my install.  However it'll boot just fine with chameleon as exists from the installer and as is installed through the installer. But interestingly not chimera

 

I run 1 ssd and 2 HDDs, it was my hope i could run clover on the ssd in uefi mode to boot win 8.1 or mavricks and keep my bootloaders purely uefi based. (since win 8.1 boots in 8 seconds :D:D)

 

To acheive this, i've tried installing clover on the same disk as the osx installation to begin with, having used the installer first and then mounting and whiping the efi partition and installing the latest clover release on sourceforge.

 

The problem is that while loading (writing '.' to the screen, clover hangs after a couple '.'s and will not load, this is the same even in safe mode.

 

Having read up on the subject i believe this may be a power management issue since PM is misshandled by the UEFI on my motherboard.  I attempted to patch my uefi using the PM patching tool on insanely mac but to no success since the stock bios is not recognised by the tool.

 

Finally, my question is, is the asus, non-standard uefi the issue here?  If it is, should i patch it?  If so how may i patch it? (stock bios found in .CAP files here

leads to stock bios v2301found here:

i appreciate your taking the time to read my post and will make all effort to provide any further detail as necessary,

 

Thanks

 

edit.  do i need some .efi drivers for boot time that i'm missing perhaps for my graphics card?

Hey man could you please tell me how did you get the Graphics working? I have X X R9-280x and I can't get full resolution and my V-RAM also doesn't get detected!

    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have      
    • Hi everyone. Here are my specs MOBO :Gigabyte Z68 XP UD3 (1155) GPU : HD 6870 1gb CPU Intel i7 2600k (1155) 60gb SATA SSD   MOBO is using legacy Bios. This machine has served me well for years. I tripped a circuit breaker a few weeks ago and now it's stuck in a boot loop. I have setup a new bootable USB to reinstall but for some reason the boot loop is happening when I startup from this as well. I can manage to get to the desktop using the safe mode boot flag (-x) but after a few moments, the desktop freezes and the computer reboots. I used the 10.10.1 disc image to create the new USB stick I am not sure if this could be causing the boot problem in the USB. Should I have used the 10.10.0? At first I suspected a hardware issue but I left the computer on for two days at in the bios screen and it stayed on just fine. Hoping someone can give me a hand figuring out which boot flags can get me going again or how I can reinstall the OS. I really need to get past the freeze/reboot cycle I am in. I am almost ready to nuke this thing and install windows
    • i also have this problem if you will finde the solution please inform me right away and thank you
    • I built a Hackintosh on a GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P in 2010, and upgraded it to Sierra about 4 months ago. It's been working great until a few days ago.  The clock now is losing time, while the computer is on and running. I've been working on the computer all morning, and have had to bump it forward to the current time it 3-4x. Right now it says 9:40am, but it's really 9:47am.  I have "Set time and date automatically" set in settings and "Apple Americas/U.S. (time.apple.com.)" selected on the drop down. Deselecting it, and selecting it again, brings the clock back to the current time.  Is this a hardware issue or a software issue? Do I have to replace the CR2032 on the motherboard? If so - why? The computer is on, and running, why would it need that battery to maintain the time?       
    • i am trying to install yosemite on a asus m2n sli deluxe chipset NVIDIA amd Athlon 64 X2 5600+ ATI Radeon HD 4800   and still i am stuck at pci configuration begin or console error. i tried several kernels and graphic cards with no results please help with these boot flags ive tried -v -x ncpi=0x3000 nv_disable=1 -v -x ncpi=0x3000 nv_disable=1 GraphicsEnabler=No
