Hackintosh Maverick Freeze At Disk Utility

Question

~~~System Information~~~

CPU (Intel Core i7 4820K @ 3.7GHz - 2011 LGA)

Graphics Card (EVGA nVidia GeForce GTX 760)

Motherboard (Asus P9X79 LE)

RAM (DDR3 12.0GB)

Samsung SSD 830 Series 128GB

~~~System Information~~~

 

Hello Hackintosh Community, I started off from creating my Niresh USB from windows 8.1 and I couldn't format my SSD into Mac OS Extended (Journaled) at the Installation Setup.

 

So far the essential boot flag that got me the furthest is " amd cpus=1 -x -v ". I did try a number of combination of PCIRootUID=1 / USBBusFix=Yes / GraphicsEnabler=No / npci=0x2000 , but it didn't make much of a difference as an outcome.

 

Usually when I just turn on my PC to try out some boot flags like " amd cpus=1 -x -v " as my essential, I could get all the way to the Installation setup but freeze whenever I click on the 'Disk Utility'. After the first reboot, I am now always freeze at the installation setup whenever it appears. It's either that or my mouse and keyboard are not active everytime. I find it weird that background ('Welcome' word in all languages) of the installation setup moves from left to right in one shot and stops in one second. I could record a video of what I exactly mean if needed.

 

I did try using -s to key some commands, but the keys on my keyboard suddenly became overly sensitive whenever I press a letter. Like fsck can be like ffffffffssssssccccccckkkkkkkk if I am not gentle and quick with pressing.

 

I also had no idea why does amd / amd64 / amdFX boot flag helps despite not using an amd processor of any sort. But without it, the screen will just go black after ':///BaseSystem.dmg' or sometimes 'Legacy USB OFF Done' according to what boot flag I use. I tried waiting for the black screen to do someting for almost 10 minutes but nothing happened.

 

Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Like I said above, "I also had no idea why does amd / amd64 / amdFX boot flag helps despite not using an amd processor of any sort. But without it, the screen will just go black/blank after ':///BaseSystem.dmg' or sometimes 'Legacy USB OFF Done' according to what boot flag I use. I tried waiting for the black screen to do someting for almost 10 minutes but nothing happened."

 

I just tried boot flag ' xpcm-free -v ', and resulted the screen go black/blank after ':///BaseSystem.dmg'.

    • 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?
