Grey screen when booting mavericks

Question

deadmau5    54

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, managed to make a hackintosh and everything is going great (Wifi, cpu ECT)   But it's pretty damn slow, i tried one of my favorite lightweight games to test (The Ultimate Doom) and it could barely run THAT! This is my first time and i have no idea how to get my 8570 to work.. Probably should have read a bit, eh? Lol.   And no I don't plan on using my hackintosh for gaming, but god so slow..   Thanks, help would be very appreciated. Edit: It's the dedicated version btw, and in about my mac I see "Graphics Display 3 MB" maybe the issue?  
    • Trying to boot to the installer but I get instant reboot after the following: I am using the following flag (I tried a variation - I need USBBusFix=Yes otherwise it fails even earlier): All my USB devices turn off just before it reboots, so I'm guessing it loses connection to the USB install media - but I can't work out why it's disabling all the USB's. My motherboard is an AsRock Killer Fatal1ty 990FX.
    • Saludos!   Tengo el mismo error (RAM a 667mhz), con una placa base ASUS (y mi cpu es el fx 6300).   Lograste solucionarlo?
    • 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! ================================= SOLVED EDIT: Hi guys, in Display Resolution, I just set it in "Default for display" and after that pressing "THE WINDOWS BUTTON KEY, IN MY CASE, IDK WHAT KEY IS THAT IN MAC KEYBOARD, I THINK THE CONTROL ONE OR IDK" PRESSING that key I selected Scaled, and it appears more options and resolutions. There is a video on youtube about that called "Mac OS X Display Resolution" If someone has the same trouble.
