Grey screen when booting mavericks

Question

Hi, the other day installed mavericks as usual, everything went fine.

It worked a few days, and when i wanted to boot it again i got a grey screen after the apple logo. It doesn't worried me a lot because i get used to have a crash on my hackintosh everytime a month..

So, i decided to install it again, and after the install, again, the same problem.

 

I tried with so many bootflags, even -v, but the verbose mode it's ok, and then it goes to the grey screen, so in the verbose mode i don't see any errors.

 

PS: Also, i tried to install Mountain Lion, and i can't get video signal after install, the monitor (Screen) goes to stand by mode with my GTX 760.

 

Any info will be appreciated.

Those are the last lines before going to the grey screen. Sorry for the quality.

As i can see i have 'NVDAStartup: Official' and 'NVDAGK100HAL loaded and registered'

 

PS: And yes, using GTX 760 4GB

I had this problem and resolved it fairly quickly.  My graphics card is a Gtx 760 192bit (OEM) and had the same grey screen. What I did was once it was finished installing i booted using the line "GraphicsEnabler=No" and that fixed it. So it was trying to use my intel graphics every time it booted. I had to reinstall without the GraphicsEnabler line unselected at the install screen and it worked perfectly after that. Good luck. :D

I got Undefined error 0 when finish installing. But maybe it's because i tried with a different torrent. I will use the torrent that niresh shaid (Which worked for me the other day)

    • 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
