Yosemite - Black screen at boot after new install

Recommended Posts

My HP laptop's specs:

HP Pavilion DM4-1253cl

Core i5-460M


Intel HD Graphics


I was able to successfully install the latest zone build with the /hp flag.

After booting into the OS with a dedicated drive, I am seeing the loading bar.

About 2/3rd through, the screen turns black and the laptop's fans spin up while

the laptop is getting hot.

I booted with "-v GraphicsEnabler=No"

Are there specific parameters I should at install time outside of the /hp one when instlling? I am using the default install options.

Thanks everyone... :)

Try booting with the /amd1 command along with your -v and GraphicsEnabler=No boot flags, this /amd1 command booted my intel ATOM laptop just fine. along with an actual AMD computer.

I just booted again with only the -v flag. Same results as the screenshot that I shared in my first post with the exception that I am now getting a value.


rooting via boot-uuid from /chosen: 6A14D606-51F4-3B98-95


I searched Google for this string but can't find anything that makes sense.


Looking at the screenshot, it looks like there are a bunch of ACPI errors.

    • Hello everyone,  I'm trying to install High Sierra (with AMD support) on my AMD 4500m Lenovo G505s laptop. When booting from Clover in EFI with i get some really fast screen log then the pc reboots. Now, i know there isn't a way you could help me without some info/logs, unless i'm missing a major malfunction known on these kind of laptops, so, do you know a way i could prevent it from rebooting in order to at least understand what is causing this problem? Do you think even trying to put OSX on this laptop is worth it? Thank you.
    • Hello, i am trying to install High Sierra on my ASUS X75VB but i am getting multiple errors with the ACPI.
      I believe it is CPU related?

      Mainboard: HM76 (X75VB SOCKET 0)
      CPU: Intel Core i5 3320m (Not the original CPU of this laptop!)
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000 & NVIDIA 2GB Geforce 740M
      RAM: DDR3 8GB
      Storage: 120GB SSD (SATA-2)

      I have used the DSDT.aml & SSDT.aml from the following resource:

      My config.plst can be found here:

      Thanks in advance!

    • I have Yosemite Zone working on Virtualbox fine.  After downloading High Sierra Zone there is only a dmg and no ISO.  I tried converting the dmg with hdiutil but it goes to 8GB and I get "no bootable media" in Virtualbox.  Has anyone been able to do this yet?
