Stuck at apple logo with spinning circle

Question

Hello,

 

I have a strange issue, that i cant seem to find any posts about it. The issue i have is, the apple logo comes up, moments later the spinning circle, it stays like that for a while, then a O shape with a cross through it ( / ) pops up in the middle of the screen, nothing further after that.

 

Specs:

 

8GB DDR2 RAM

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 clocked at 2.40GHZ

Installed on a ST3500320AS ATA Device

AMD Radeon HD 5800 Series
Gigabyte motherboard (as much as i know sorry)
1920 x 1080 HDMI TV
 
Another side issue, is that it doesnt pick up my PS/2 Keyboard.
 
Its a basic Logitech SK-2930

    • I have a laptop with an Intel Core i5(6th gen) 6198DU CPU with Intel HD 510 graphics and Nvidia 920mx discrete graphics. other specifications include: 8gb ram 120gb ssd+ 1tb hdd Is this build compatible high sierra 
    • Hi, I already solved it. just mount the dmg image to a USB 3.0 memory and apply what Niresh answered in this link I hope you work
    • I am also having this problem  I use Chameleon as installed by the Niresh installer.  I don't see a preboot partition.  Where would it get created? Where would I find the installer logs to upload? OK so I've found the logs and they contain this... Jan 22 09:22:22 Mac-Pro OSInstaller[565]: PackageKit: PKUpdatePrebootInstallOperation skipping disk because it is not apfs. My boot disk is an SSD and I did not select any option to convert it when installing High Sierra so I don't know why it wasn't converted by the install.   If I could figure out how to attach the install log I would and I'd ask if converting to APFS would fix the problem.  Any ideas how to attach a log?    
    • Well thanks guys for help or say no help any way i fix everything by installing  High sierra everything works including hdmi audio also. So admin/moderator can you close/move this post?
