Cannot install Yosemite, reboots automaticly.

Question

Hello,

I cannot install Yosemite since I use "-v" and it reboots automaticly at the "Read HFS+" series of commands.(the ones that go really fast at start)

Dell XPS 8700

NVIDIA GTX 745 4GB Dedicated VRAM

12 GB Memory (2x4 and 2x2 for 4 slots)

Intel Core i7 4790 "Haswell" 3.6GHz

1TB hard drive for Windows 8.1 and SSD for booting it up

External USB 3.0 hard disk of 120GB for Hackintosh

Well, installing Mavericks went fine with my IDE USB, I just had to boot the install with the "haswell" kernel and using "GraphicsEnabler=No". I tried them on Yosemite and it didn't work. The only other problem that I had in Mavericks was that I had to boot "-s" and delete the graphics kexts to enable VESA and then "-x" to boot first time to do it properly. Then it worked good until I did the 10.9.0 to 10.9.5 update.

I think the problem is, because you're using external HDD for installing Yosemite. Don't use external HDD for installing OS X

Problem is that my HDD is IDE so my computer doesn't have IDE port... That is why I got an enclosure to transform the IDE to USB. Could it be that USB 3.0 doesn't work on Yosemite Zone ?

I do not understand the "Yes you could". I did not ask if it could work or not, I asked if USB 3.0 could be the problem. Maybe you mispelled it. And when do I choose GUID from MBR ?

sorry my mistake.

 

yes, you can use external HDD but I'm not sure it could be work with IDE HDD. As long as I know OS X only use SATA HDD or with SATA to USB converter (External SATA HDD).
