Mavericks don't boot after installing

Question

Hi, I hope you can help me because i'm a bit lost with all this hackintosh things.

 

First of all my computer is:

 

Motherboard: Gigabyte ga-970a-d3

Processor: amd phenom ii x4 965 

Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT 1GB

 

My bios configuration is to boot from USB-HDD first, HDD second, CD-ROM last (my cdrom is configured as sata type (it is connected via sata), port 5). The HDD is configured as AHCI type.

 

I was able to install Mac OS X Mavericks 10.9 via pendrive with no problems and all was ok, I used bootflag amd to run the installer.

After that if I install any bootloader my computer won't boot anymore, I have multiple errors like a restart without warnings, boot ebios error 0x31, a grey screen with apple logo with no results and a aparently normal booting but a suddenly black screen.

 

I started to think that my graphics are not compatible with MacOS, when I use my computer connected by HDMI it doesn't have HD resolution, it's much worse. I didn't find any info online about my graphic card working with Mac OS, any of not working either.

 

I'm only able to boot  booting with the installation pendrive and bootflag amd.

 

The last time I reinstalled the system it was all ok but a bootloader from Niresh was installed (an update I supose) and i'm not able to boot anymore even with installation pendrive.

 

Any ideas of what's happening with my computer? 

 

I'm desperated now I reinstalled like tons of times and now I don't know what to do. Please Help!!

After installing, try to boot back into the bootloader in the pendrive, then go down to your mac harddrive, then use theese bootflags: "PCIRootUID=0 npci=0x2000 GraphicsEnabler=No -v"(without quotes), if that doesn't work, try with an extra -x flag.

Good luck!

    • 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?
