What to click in clover bootloader?

Question

shiro100    1

Hi, after problems with Mavericks I decide to try installing ML in my pc.

Config:

Phenom II x955

4GB AM DDR3

Asus Geforce GTX 660TI

120GB SSD

 

I have downloaded niresh AMD USB *.dmg, and create a bootable usb with win32 disk imager.

 

When I boot from usb it will show me something like this:

And here I dont know, what to select. I have slightly different picture, there is few options to boot windows from HDD, then two options about UEF and EFI (boot from UEFI, etc.), and one icon with image of moutain lion with caption "boot OS X from OS X" or something like that. All guides that i found on internet does not have clover, and boot directly to this:

But I dont have that screen.

 

When I select "boot OSX" (picture of ML), it only display apple logo screen like this:

and stays there stuck, no spinning wheel under logo, nothing. I will try some boot flags today. But I need to know, that my progress is right. To lauch OS X installer from clover, I have to select moutain lion icon?

omg, what a support....cmon guys. Half of a day and no reply?

 

Why you ever make such user unfriendly installation? this suck.

No guide covering that clover screen, nothing. Only waste of time.

Try to install with Chameleon boot loader, cause that's more user friendly for AMD users! And being honest, these people here are way more than supportive. As you have some other works to do, they also have their own life beside this. So wait with patience! If anyone doesn't have the exact solution for this, why should anyone give you false solutions?  :smile:

I understand, i also helping people in computer forums in my language. But if this is that too much complicated, there has to be a complete guide step by step, covering any aspect of installation.

 

How do I install with chameleon? When I create bootable usb from DMG image from Niresh, it will boot to that clover screen I have posted before. When I create install usb with Mavericks, it has booted straight to DOS-like screen, like my second picture above. No clover screen, or other confusion...

That DOS-like screen (my second image above) is chameleon?

I have test installation with boot arguments in clover screen, that I post above.

I have booted with args: amd64 -v. There were also other args already written - npci=0x2000, maxmem=3096 and path to basesystem.dmg (or something like that).

After boot I stuck at this and nothing is happened:

Hi shiro, 

 

I can't give any suggestion related to this but here is the link to a video that's the most comprehensive guide on internet to install Niresh distro on AMD Platform. Try to do what he did exactly, alright? Reply if you succeed.

    • Hi guys. Well, this is my second day of troubles, I touched everything, I installed max like 5 times in the same day, trying to figure out things and well. My Mac it display my graphic card on the #About this Mac tab With 2047MB ( So I guess all is right ) I installed the latest nvida drivers and on clover I activated the NvidaWeb. The problem is the resolution. Max resolution allowed is 1280 x 1024 and 800 x 600. I used to boot with nvd_drv 1 with nvd dry 0, I used to boot with all that things, and without them.  BUT No way to fix the resolution. Someone knows what-s going wrong and how can I fix it? Bdw im using iMac14,2 and OS X Sierra 10.12.3 Im connecting to the screen with DVI adapter. ( Maybe that causes the problem ) But it shows Im running 2047 MB so... idk why I can't change resolution. 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)
