Failing During Install

Recommended Posts


I am not new to Hackintosh installs, but this one has got my beat.

I can boot to the install section. I've formatted journaled and also ran a repair on the HDD.

When it gets to 22 minutes left it fails.

I am installing on AMD Acer. I have previously got Snow Leo working, but not Mavericks.

Two things.

1) Does selecting different install options actually stop it installing or it just won't work when it has installed?

2) I'm using a HDD plugged in via USB as the target. Is it best to have it plugged into the SATA?

Any help would be welcome.

Use the -v boot flag. Take a picture of what happens. If this is a kernel panic, I had the same problem on vmware. It turned out it was something to do with hardware virtualization. Check your BIOS and turn it off if its there. If not, are you booting from the HDD or using VMWare?

Please give a bit time when you create a new thead. You must tell your PC specs in detail.


Be sure about BIOS.


Though it should work but I wont suggest OSX on an USB HDD.


And Yes, it affects (configuration) the whole setup so leave it until you are sure what are you doing.


Also, boot with amd or amdfx (if your system is amdfx) boot flag.

Thanks both.

I put the HDD into the PC and it installed perfectly.

It's up and running now.

I do have an issue with having to boot with USB stick in now, but I'll spend some time with that.

Thanks for the quick reply.

The machine is Acer 5551 with AMD Athlon II.

    • I have working audio, graphics and network on this 10.13  Now store has sent me "security update" which I believe is 10.13.3.  Has anyone done this via store? What do I need to do before I install it? I have issues loading EFI so have to always manually mount it (Clover configurator and EFI mounter both fail) but using terminal and command "open /efi" I am able to mount and make changes to my config.plist too.   
    • Hi guys, I try to install Mac OS X Yosemite on my computer, but... i get stuck at the logo (when i boot it) + i see a bar, who won't charge. Can you give me a solution?   Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual  CPU  E2180  @ 2.00GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.0GHz Memory: 2048MB RAM    User DPI Setting: Using System DPI  System DPI Setting: 96 DPI (100 percent) Display Card name: NVIDIA GeForce 210  Manufacturer: NVIDIA Chip type: GeForce 210 DAC type: Integrated RAMDAC  
    • Just to Add I used My windows machine with TransMac to wipe and build the install (including USB). I only used the clover installer I forgot that it could switch to chameleon.
