Yosemite 10.10.1 hangs on grey screen with spinning wheel

Question

Hello,

 

My specs are :

 

CPU : AMD FX 8320

GPU : Sapphire Radeon 280X

MoBo : Asus M5A97 r2.0

 

I have succesfully installed Niresh's Yosemite Zone on my pc. I had to replace the kernel in /S/L/Kernels because the /amd bootflag didn't work. 

 

Now I boot with -v and I see this error :

 

Warning: couldn't block sleep during cache update
Warning: proceeding w/o DiskArb
 
and it gets past the console all the way to the grey screen. It gets stuck there with the spinning wheel on my mouse. No Apple logo, no loading bar, just a blank grey screen with the spinning wheel.
 
It boots up in safe mode and I tried reverting some kexts from 10.9.5 but no luck. I reverted AppleACPIPlatform.kext, IOACPIFamily.kext, IONDRVSupport, IOPCIFamily.kext, IOUSBFamily.kext, Corecrypto.kext, Sandbox.kext, System.kext in that order and rebooted every time. Once I got to the System.kext things got too weird with multiple errors (mostly ACPI) so I stopped there.
 
When installing Mavericks updates I got the same thing. No error message though. Reverting these to an earlier version (10.9.0) worked. But now it doesn't.
 
Anybody got any ideas?

Hello rainmaker,

I saw this when looking up the same two warnings you posted in boldface, and I have completed most of my Hackintosh installation journey, and I believe I can help, so I decided to make an account just for you (Congrats, hopefully 5 days is too late and you've found a solution, but here goes) ☺

This is caused by a graphics error. Have you explored the (1) different graphics boot flags and/OR (2) editing your DSDT and/or (3) patched any Kexts for your graphics card?

The reason safe mode would work is due to it working around the normal graphic environment.

If you have solved this already, which I hope, please post what you believe fixed it, for others to find helpful.

With Unbounding Love, Grace, and Peace,

Thank you very much Sam,

 

It was what you say, the graphics card is not supported. Right now I'm pretty much stuck. The Mavericks 10.9.5 kexts worked OOB with only the AtiConfig=Pitcairn flag. And so I tried doing the same with Yosemite, but it does not work. The problem is that pretty much everybody keeps Mavericks, since the differences between these two are very small, so I have no support on the subject. 

 

There is a funny thing happening though. When I have the Yosemite kexts, OSX boots up in safe mode and the card is recognized as HD 7xxx, which is the same as on Mavericks. With the same kexts, it does not go through the full boot. After removing the kexts it boots up with 7MB graphics. I tried reverting the kexts from Mavericks but it got me kernel panics. And now I am thinking about DSDT editing. Now that I think of it, I had Chameleon installed on Mavericks and now I have Chimera, so I will first try changing the bootloader to the latest Chameleon one. I know that they are almost exactly the same, but this problem happened before when I chose the wrong AtiConfig with Chameleon so I am thinking maybe Chimera doesn't recognize the boot flag.

 

Thank you again. A beautiful new year for you and best wishes!

Can you give me some advice on my same exact problem? https://www.hackintosh.zone/forums/topic/7242-hackintosh-zone-amd-build-unable-to-boot-in-normal-mode/

I don't know how to edit DSDT or patch Kexts

    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have      
    • Hi everyone. Here are my specs MOBO :Gigabyte Z68 XP UD3 (1155) GPU : HD 6870 1gb CPU Intel i7 2600k (1155) 60gb SATA SSD   MOBO is using legacy Bios. This machine has served me well for years. I tripped a circuit breaker a few weeks ago and now it's stuck in a boot loop. I have setup a new bootable USB to reinstall but for some reason the boot loop is happening when I startup from this as well. I can manage to get to the desktop using the safe mode boot flag (-x) but after a few moments, the desktop freezes and the computer reboots. I used the 10.10.1 disc image to create the new USB stick I am not sure if this could be causing the boot problem in the USB. Should I have used the 10.10.0? At first I suspected a hardware issue but I left the computer on for two days at in the bios screen and it stayed on just fine. Hoping someone can give me a hand figuring out which boot flags can get me going again or how I can reinstall the OS. I really need to get past the freeze/reboot cycle I am in. I am almost ready to nuke this thing and install windows
    • i also have this problem if you will finde the solution please inform me right away and thank you
    • I built a Hackintosh on a GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P in 2010, and upgraded it to Sierra about 4 months ago. It's been working great until a few days ago.  The clock now is losing time, while the computer is on and running. I've been working on the computer all morning, and have had to bump it forward to the current time it 3-4x. Right now it says 9:40am, but it's really 9:47am.  I have "Set time and date automatically" set in settings and "Apple Americas/U.S. (time.apple.com.)" selected on the drop down. Deselecting it, and selecting it again, brings the clock back to the current time.  Is this a hardware issue or a software issue? Do I have to replace the CR2032 on the motherboard? If so - why? The computer is on, and running, why would it need that battery to maintain the time?
