Yosemite: 'is in exception list allowing to load'




First of all, sorry for posting this in the wrong section, I couldn't find a Yosemite subforum.


I used MacPwn (on my iMac) to create an install-usb and managed to install Yosemite to my hard drive. After the installer finished I attempted to boot into Yosemite, but it hangs at 'is in exception list allowing to load'. I tried using boot flags '-v -x GraphicsEnabler=No kext-dev-mode=1' , but no luck...


It might be important to note that I do not have an existing Hackintosh installation on this pc.


Here are my specs:

Asus z87-A

Intel 4770K

Asus GTX 770


Thanks in advance!

@ First make sure you are using Clover boot loader other bootloaders can't boot it
second GraphicsEnabler=No is for chameleon not for clover 
if you can install then you can boot don't use chameleon

I am using Clover, but I didn't know that about GraphicsEnabler. I made progress, I can boot using -x -s -v kext-dev-mode=1, then in single usermode I execute fsck -fy, mount -uw /  (without these commands it still hangs) and exit. The first time I could put in all of my details but the configurator hanged at 'Setting up your Mac'. I force rebooted (using the same flags) and eventually came to the login view where I put in my password, but it hanged again, this time a spinning wheel just overlayed the login window.


I really don't know what is happening here, why do I need to mount my disk each time I want to boot? And why do I have to use safemode, which kexts could be interfering with my hardware (which kexts does MacPwn install?).

Write down the name of the kext where it's hanging on, i guess it is Apple Mobile. boot with -s kext-dev-mode=1 -v. Once it is loaded execute this commands:


/sbin/mount -uw /

rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/(nameofkext)

rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/AppleKextExcludeList.kext



Good Luck

Now boot with -v -x kext-dev-mode=1, it will hang there again but wait for a few minutes. Then it suddenly reboots, then try boot without -x

It's been hanging there for a long time... How long should it take before it reboots? And are you sure that I need to delete that excludelist kext?

    • Hi guys, I installed the Hackintosh Sierra Zone image and most things work except my graphics. It detects as AMD R9 290X when I use FakeID 0x67B01002 on boot, however I only get 7MB of VRAM with no QE. My screen also tears as well. Hope someone can help me - Intel Core i5 2500K - AMD R9 290X 4GB - ASUS P8Z77-V LX
    • 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
