Mavericks not loading or starting up after install - Hackintosh Mavericks - Hackintosh Zone Jump to content

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I am trying to install Mavericks on my PC. I have never installed an Apple OS on a PC before so I don't have any experience whatsoever. I wiped my hard drive clean to install Maverick on it. I changed the BIOS settings to ACHI and set up the USB as priority. I have a Gigabyte 970a-ds3 if you need to know that. I also have an amd fx-6300 processor. I read that Niresh is compatible with AMD. Anyway, I installed Mavericks by launching it with the boot code: amdfx -v. I also formatted the drive to work with OSX. My hard drive is 3TB so I tried partitioning the hard drive. But, it only let me partition it into two partitions. I installed Mavericks in one of those partitions. When it finally finished, I restarted the computer and removed the USB as the instructions asked to do so. But, it says: "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key." I press any key and nothing happens. Then I try turning on the computer with the USB, and then I click the Partition where I installed Mavericks and it just says: "can't find /mack_kernel Press any key to continue."  Is there something I am doing wrong? Or could you tell me what might be the problem or how to fix it? Thanks.

    • Hello. I just installed hackintosh high sierra on my PC. It's version is 10.13 so is there any way I can update to 10.13.3? And also my hackintosh freezes when opening few applications like logic pro x. Please help me.
    • Same problem here. Did you solve this?
    • I was having an issue with installing High Sierra because I was getting this error OsxAptioFix2Drv: starting overrides for /System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi
      using reloc block: no, hibernate wake: no I tried all the fixes that everyone was telling me about replacing the file with a different one but nothing worked. Finally I came across a post from some person who had a laptop that was designed like mine. I have the Aspire A515-51. The weird thing is that it has 8gb of ram installed. There is 4gb that is soldered to the motherboard and one 4gb ram in the only ram slot. Well this person stated that if he removed the 4gb ram that was installed in the ram slot the install would move past the error and install. I tried it and WOW it worked. I was able to complete the install and everything worked just fine but the wifi. So I hope this helps someone, but I am also hoping that someone can help me with the issue of the ram. I can't add the ram back into the ram slot or the boot will stall at  OsxAptioFix2Drv: starting overrides for /System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi
