your hackintosh is being configured

Question

Hi,

I've successfully installed Mavericks on my AMD machine (have had a fully working setup on this same machine before) however have run into a new problem on boot.

When I boot the machine it runs the usual "your hackintosh is being configured" pop up. After a few minutes it completely locks up and doesn't respond until I perform performance hard reset.

My specs:

AMD Phenom II x4

6GB RAM

NVIDIA GTX560 Ti

NVIDIA GT520

Asus M5A99X evo

As I say I've had Mavericks running smoothly on this setup before - so not sure why I'm getting this problem this time around.

Anyone got any ideas?

Can't even think of any log files to check. Are there any?

Okay so I don't think it's related to the configuration as it has managed to configure successfully now but still freezes after a few minutes of use. I suspect it's a temperature problem?

Can anyone help with advice on what to check?

It's definitely my GTX560 Ti that's causing the issue - I have removed it and the machine hasn't locked up for at least 10 minutes.

Can anyone help fix this problem?

 

I have tried the freezefix.app - but to no avail.

Not so sure it's the graphics card now as it has frozen with just my other card too now. Really don't know where to look for this.

I used a different USB as my installation media and it worked fine.

Don't know if it was the USB or the ISO - supose this could help anyone else in the same boat.

    • 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?
