Installer issue

Recommended Posts

Okay so I got approximatively the same problem as here: https://www.hackintosh.zone/forums/topic/2077-cant-boot-usb-mavericks-installer/

 

So I have this HP 15-e036sf with a AMD A4-5000 APU, my motherboard does not support AHCI, too.

But, I'd like to install Mavericks in dual boot with the Windows 8 the laptop came in.

I partitionned the HDD and created a Mavericks usb with Win32 Disk Imager.

 

 

Then, the problems came, when I wanted to boot from the usb stick, it would detect it correctly and all that stuff, but the installer just refuses to load.

 

I tried starting it with -v and it gave me command lines that scrolled too fast to see what it said and then, simply restarted.

Even if I try to start it normally, it simply restarts.

 

Is it a problem from my processor (As I saw in the pinned topic) or my usb that was not correctly made?

It HAS to be AHCI. End of.   Sorry but if you can't find a way to run AHCI (Or run an older OS X version such as 10.6/7) then it's a near impossible task

I heard from many sites that Niresh support non-ahci drives, that why i chose it.

Also found this: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/290644-installing-os-x-on-non-ahci-drive-laptop/

 

Can this work with Mavericks?

 

 

I tried also to boot with the command amd -v oramd -x GraphicsEnabler=No

 

 

And I get this:

Edit: 

 

 

(Or run an older OS X version such as 10.6/7)

So you're telling me that I can install Lion without AHCI?

Try lion as worst case. I dont think the first few mac books had AHCI and they ran 10.6 and 10.7...    Try "cpus=1"

Okay, i'll try Lion, thanks for the answer.

 

There is a special way to update from Lion to Mountain Lion afterwards?

    • Oh, thank you but in the meantime I thought again and have installed High Sierra instead. It works just fine, put a camera, bluetooth, wifi, all working OK. I only have to solve a little problem when doing restart it freezes but after shutdown it comes up good! I have also Win7 on same mbr disk and I start with the installation usb but I think go over to EasyBCD to make a smoother boot. If your experienced I would appreciate very much any hints for helping me in this direction.

    • Hi, i am struggling with installation telling me that it needs less than one minute for eternity. in log it shows that "./postinstall: Using AMD Bronya Kernel" process is running, but 4 hours is too long for "Less than a minute" don't you think ;).    Please help me, i tried to install Mac OS on Intel and AMD processor PC, same problem.  
    • Hola, generalmente se postea en ingles.   Podrias dejar las especificaciones de tu tarjeta madre, por ejemplo: RAM PROCESADOR GPU ETC   Ademas de los componentes que tienes instalados... tengo una pregunta para ti.   Ya comprobaste la compatibilidad de tu ordenador con el sistema operativo?
