Fresh install hangs on Apple logo

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I have installed Niresh from USB and all seemingly went well.
I installed to a 2nd partiton on my SSD (which also has Windows 7)

Spec is as follows:
CPU: i7 4770
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-Z87-HD3
SSD: Crucial m4 120GB
USB Mouse
PS/2 Keyboard
4x 4GB Crucial RAM
Built in GPU

When I installed I left all of the custom options on the defaults and I have not used any boot flags

On install the system restarted and I picked Mac OSX to boot, however, it got to a grey screen with a silver apple logo and a loading circle and it is just stuck on this. Does anybody know what I have done wrong as I thought this hardware was really well supported out the box

Managed to fix this very quickly, verbose booting showed it was something to do with BluetoothHCI that it was getting stuck on, a quick google and I booted successfully using
-v -x

you are booting in safe mode, which disable a lot of function, no graphic acceleration will be enabled. you stuck there probably because of your graphics are not working properly, you should try to boot with boot flag: IntelAzulFB=XX(0 to 15, by trial and error) if you are using chameleon boot loader

Thanks for that, I googled that flag and my GPU and came up with this which works:
GraphicsEnabler=Yes IntelAzulFB=10

Do I need the GraphicsEnabler=Yes flag?
 

It now works swimmingly

:) I will try to edit the bootloader to do this every time

 

Now I have got it working I decided to update to 10.9.5 - I figured if I was going to break my install I would do it now, is there anything I should know? I figured out I need to re-enable TRIM already and I'll need multi beast to do that but is there anything else I need to be aware of?

yes you need GraphicsEnabler=Yes to enable QE/CI(the acceleration). i don't really know about that, i am using a haswell cpu too, and only with hdd, not ssd, i can directly upgrade from 10.9 to 10.9.5, just need to replace the kernel. you may ask me for a working patched xpcm haswell kernel

    • I am looking to do a Hackintosh on a 14-inch computer.  I wanted to do it on an Aero 14 inch i7-8750h, but the laptop is discontinued.  I am firm on a 14-inch laptop.  I want to be able to upgrade the parts later down the road to keep the laptop current.  Any help on another 14-inch laptop would be much appreciated.
