i7 freeze on startup Mountain lion 10.8.5*update4*

If you are having problems after installation, this has a lot of information:

UPDATE QUESTION: when I install from DVD it takes about 20 minutes and then the screen goes grey and the computer restarts. Is this the way it should be?

 

Hi.

I have installed Niresh Mountain Lion 10.8.5 on a separate hard drive in an existing Win 7 computer. To be clear, I have one drive for win7, one for storage and now one for OSX. (I refer to Niresh Mountain Lion 10.8.5 as OSX here)

 

I have NOT installed a correct bootloader. I installed OSX on the separate hardrive connected via SATA. I can choose to boot direct from this drive through my UEFI BIOS interface. Or to use boot flags I use the DVD to choose the boot from the hard disk. OSX begins to boot but hangs.Note that I am happy with leaving the boot situation alone. When i want to have a go with OSX I can choose boot from the hard disk easily. I do not have access to camera at the moment.

 

I have tried the following:

 

1) reinstalled using burned DVD of Niresh iso.

 

2) the various "flags": -x -v -GraphicsEnabler = No

 

3)Setting my BIOS settings to UEFI defaults then disabling anything "fancy" eg. - VT-d technology under the north bridge options. 

 

Here is the manual for my motherboard:

ftp://europe.asrock.com/manual/H67DE3.PDF

 

 

the following errors occur during the boot:

 

1)device hubdrive @0x1d100000 overcurrent condition port will be disabled (occurs several times)

 

2)

 OSX hangs upon reaching the following line as shown by -x-v boot (lines leading up tp this are below in qoutes);

Bluetooth -yaddayaddayadda-Start completed

 

"SMC::smcInitHelper ERROR:MMIO regMap == NUll - fall back to old SMC mode

ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::start - wait for Service (resourceMatching(AppleIntelCPUManagement) timed out
DMOS has arrived
[iOBluetoothHCIController][start] -- completed"
 
**Update**
 
i have disabled Vt-d but my monitor is vga only. So I think i need to install vga support for HD3000. From here maybe;
 
 
However I can't figure out how to do this. ** I am trying to edit the kxt's but when booting with -s typing into command line keeps being interrupted by USB warning about "device hubdrive @0x1d100000 overcurrent condition".
 
So I am parking this project. Will probably try again when I have access to a Mac and not use distro. 
 
I have tried the AppleIntelCPU* removal via terminal, no impact
 
I have tried replacing the FakeSMC via terminal, no impact.
 
I have tried reinstalling with different options in customise, but none had an impact. I tried changing NullCpu.. to Disabler, and others, but no effect.

Not sure how much clearer I can be. This is from my original post:

    • 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
    • I built a Hackintosh on a GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P in 2010, and upgraded it to Sierra about 4 months ago. It's been working great until a few days ago.  The clock now is losing time, while the computer is on and running. I've been working on the computer all morning, and have had to bump it forward to the current time it 3-4x. Right now it says 9:40am, but it's really 9:47am.  I have "Set time and date automatically" set in settings and "Apple Americas/U.S. (time.apple.com.)" selected on the drop down. Deselecting it, and selecting it again, brings the clock back to the current time.  Is this a hardware issue or a software issue? Do I have to replace the CR2032 on the motherboard? If so - why? The computer is on, and running, why would it need that battery to maintain the time?
