Yosemite - Black screen at boot after new install


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.

Alright, I am giving up. Maverick works fine on this laptop and Yosemite works fine on my tower. Something is going with the Yosemite build for HP laptops.

I found the culprit at another forum. The HP i-* laptops need the cpus=1 flag. I haven't seen this one listed on this forum yet but it works. So, looks like the Yosemite build from Niresh does not account for some of the HP (or all?) laptops.


I ended up creating a new build with UniBeast and the actual Yosemite download from the App Store and added the flags I needed. Works like a charm. :)
