Need Help Please. AMD A8 APU

Question

Hi guys, i've been working on installing Mavericks on my hp envy touch smart 15-j009wm. I have tried every boot flag and kernel i can think of. All i get is an instant reboot after it runs just a few lines. 

Specs:

 

AMD A8-5550m

Radeon HD 8550g graphics

8gb Ram

 

Let me know anything else you need. May donate with paypal if someone can help me get it running.

Wow man that helped a lot. I'm at least getting somewhere now. I now get stuck on (of course) "still waiting for root device" so I'm trying to figure that out. My bios doesn't have an ahci option but from researching I found out that it is supposed to be enabled by default. I tried adding the flags ahcidisk=8 and debug=8 and I get this: "see attached"

Find in your BIOS and change to AHCI, then you can try with -x (Safe Mode):

 

amd npci=0x3000 -v -x

 

or try:

 

amd npci=0x3000 USBBusFix=Yes -v -x

 

or:

 

amd npci=0x3000 USBBusFix=Yes PCIRootUID=1 -v -x

 

if not run, change to PCIRootUID=0

 

Regards.

Well man i finally managed to enaBLE ahci. the original problem was that my bios didnt have that option so i had to run an efi shell at bootup and run setup_0x39 0x0 to change it. so after booting to niresh again and adding the flags i GOT A LOT FURTHER!! but i got stuck somewhere else;/ after reboot now im just getting stuck at the same waiting for root device?! But i can confirm that ahci is enabled
