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!

    • Install is hanging at 11 minutes  Localhost osinstaller 403 can not connect to /var/run/systemkeychaincheck.socket no such file or directory 
    • So far installer is working with amd phenom ii x4 965 black edition and gtx 750ti. Installing on a Kingston 240 GB ssd. Mobo is  m4a88t -v evo/usb3 from asus. Used boot flags /amd64 nv_disable=1 dart=0 -x -v
    • I managed to install the niresh mav distro and then did the combo update without reinstalling the hackintosh stuff after the update, this ofc resulted in my pc not booting. Ive tried to use the installer to do a time machine backup of my system pre combo update to no avail, and now I cant even get the installer to boot again. any and all help is greatly appreciated. I'm using a asus m4a88t -v evo/usb3 mobo and amd phenom ii x4 965 Deneb edition. I previously booted the installer using -amd64 nv_disable=1 dart=0 and I think -x -v but I cant remember. I think my bios needs to be updated but I cant even find the board on the asus site so any help with that would also be appreciated. if anyone is familiar with the hp flyer red laptop my wife would like me to hackintosh that as well. I have a working windows 10 install and working Ubuntu install, sandisk cruzer 32gb flashdrive and a couple blank cds at my disposal.
