Install Chameleon to EFI

Question

Hello.

 

Asus 8 series motherboards dropped support for booting unless the bootloader is in the EFI partition. I followed this guide to install the bootloader here but I used the chameleon iso "i386" folder instead of chimera from UniBeast.

 

 

The bootloader starts when the PC is booted, but when I select my Niresh installation, I loads some files, splashes the Apple logo and reboots the computer. I have tried the following boot flags -v -f -F UseKernalCache=No UseKernalCache=Yes -x xpcm-free

 

How can I fix this? The system boots fine with no boot flags if I use the Niresh USB to boot.

 

 

Also, can anyone help me to enable Graphics Acceleration

 

Here are my system's specs:

 

Asus B85-Plus LGA 1150 (Haswell)

Intel Core i7-4771

Gigabyte GTX 760 4GB GDDR5

 

Thanks

@ 1st make sure the efi partition got a latest version of chameleon and also 

chameleon loads the boot.plist in the Installation drive as main so if you have an /Extra folder in the destination that Extra will be scanned first

My Mavericks doesnt support clover (Only The Installation USB, after installing you can use clover) because it uses kextcache

restart may be caused by some wrong boot-flags, mount the efi partition of the USB then copy the files of that EFI Partition to yours it will do the trick

@ Oh ok. I was messing with chameleon a bit so I am going to re install mavericks now so I have a fresh install. When it is done, should I follow the tutorial from youtube in my original post and then do as you say after? Or should I do something else to install the bootloader to EFI?

    • Hey!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM com.apple.audio.DriverHelper[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named com.apple.bluetoothaudiod." repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)
