No Keyboard Mouse On Install Screen


Sorry to start a new topic on this but I have done a search for every topic on keyboard and mouse in this forum and have still not found a solution: I can get all the way to the installation screen where the welcome scrolls in different languages but keyboard and mouse still not working. Both mouse and keyboard are usb. Should be noted that when switching off USB legacy in BIOS that keyboard and mouse dont work in boot screen.


I have tried every flag that people have suggested on here including:







USBLegacyOff=Yes | No (Tried both ways)


Any additional suggestions are helpful.

So my mb only has one PS/2 port and was successful in getting the PS/2 Keyboard to work in the welcome screen. I was able to get to the next screen (Install OSX) but am unable to proceed past that point now. I am able to use the tab key to go back and forth between continue and the go back arrow but cannot get to the utilities menu because mouse wont work still. I tried Shift+Command (windows logo)+U for utilities menu but no response. When I try to hit continue it just sits and does nothing. I assume from past installs on other machines that this means it doesnt see a suitable drive to install to.


On a side note, I since I do only have one PS/2 port I tried to boot with the PS/2 mouse only but it didn't work at all in the first welcome screen.


Thanks @deadmau5 for the suggestion. It is encouraging to be able to get past at least one block in the road!

Here's an update: I am now successfully installing Mavericks as I type.


Here's what I ended up doing (I don't pretend to know what I'm doing here, but my keyboard/mouse worked for install by following this method)


Downloaded the DSDT.aml file specific to my Gigabyte motherboard from and changing the name to the generic DSDT.aml file name. I had to unhide all the files on the Niresh USB (unfortunately I had to use my Mac to do this - dont know how else to do it since its formatted for Mac.) by following the instructions found here: I then inserted the file in the Extras folder on the usb drive.

Then at boot I used the flags -v GraphicsEnabler=Yes PCIRootUID=1

    • 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[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named" 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)
