Help: Updating from Mavericks to Yosemite

Question

Hardware Specs First:

-AMD FX 6100 Processor

-AMD Radeon HD 6570 Graphics

-Gigabyte 78LMT-USB3 Motherboard

-No dedicated sound card... Yet.

-The HDD that I have Mavericks currently installed on is a WD

250 GB HDD.

Mavericks 10.9.0 works wonderfully on my AMD-Based PC (as you could tell from the specs, I'm an AMD Fan)

However, just like iOS 7, I think that Yosemite looks beautiful, and like anyone else as eager as me out there, I would like to have it for myself.

I've followed the current guide on Hackintosh Zone (as of October 31st) and have been 100% successful... Up until the actual Installation part comes in.

When I boot into my 16 GB (Cruzer Glide) USB, everything goes perfectly. I press 'O' to access the configuration and, along with the "Kext-dev-blah blah =1", I add a

"-v", that way I can see what's going on.

I then press 'return' and proceed to arrow over to my Yosemite Install, and press Enter.

I'm then greeted by 2 or 3 Lines of code, followed by a line of dots slowly progressing across the screen. About 2 seconds into these dots moving about the screen, happily, the dots suddenly stop and I get what I think is an error, saying:

"Root Device UUID is..." followed by a whole buch of letters, numbers, and various dashes. After this has been on the screen for a good 4 seconds, my PC crashes and reboots.

I've tried adding all of the following:

ncpi=0x2000 -v

ncpi=0x3000 -v

-x -v

PCIRootUID=1 -v

PCIRootUID=0 -v

...With no luck.

I'm NO noob at all of this, nor am I an expert at installing and modifying Kernels and Kexts and what not. I would appreciate some help here, as I honest to goodness have no idea what I'm doing wrong.

Thanks for any and all help!

    • Oh, thank you but in the meantime I thought again and have installed High Sierra instead. It works just fine, put a camera, bluetooth, wifi, all working OK. I only have to solve a little problem when doing restart it freezes but after shutdown it comes up good! I have also Win7 on same mbr disk and I start with the installation usb but I think go over to EasyBCD to make a smoother boot. If your experienced I would appreciate very much any hints for helping me in this direction.

    • Hi, i am struggling with installation telling me that it needs less than one minute for eternity. in log it shows that "./postinstall: Using AMD Bronya Kernel" process is running, but 4 hours is too long for "Less than a minute" don't you think ;).    Please help me, i tried to install Mac OS on Intel and AMD processor PC, same problem.  
    • Hola, generalmente se postea en ingles.   Podrias dejar las especificaciones de tu tarjeta madre, por ejemplo: RAM PROCESADOR GPU ETC   Ademas de los componentes que tienes instalados... tengo una pregunta para ti.   Ya comprobaste la compatibilidad de tu ordenador con el sistema operativo?
