Fresh install hangs on Apple logo

Question

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

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?

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

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

    • Im trying to install MacOSierra on Alienware 15 r2,  512ssd nvme 951 and 120gb intel sataIII samsung, i6820 hk 980m, intel 530. Ofter many attempts i solved a lot of erros during the installation, and finnaly i found out that macOs does not suport SSD. I created a patch for my ssds but now, i have this error: ACPI ERROR; and last: AppleNVMe Assert failed;  2 SSD: // Inject bogus class-code for NVMe SSD to prevent IONVMeFamily.kext from loading
      DefinitionBlock("", "SSDT", 2, "hack", "NVMe-Pcc", 0)
      {
          External(_SB.PCI0.PEG0, DeviceObj)
          Method(_SB.PCI0.PEG0._DSM, 4)
          {
              If (!Arg2) { Return (Buffer() { 0x03 } ) }
              Return(Package()
              {
                  "class-code", Buffer() { 0xff, 0x08, 0x01, 0x00 },

      //EOF   I did the patch in virtual machine as they instructed. but still nothing.
    • 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)
