Yosemite 10.10.1 hangs on grey screen with spinning wheel

Question

rainmaker3    7

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.

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!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM com.apple.audio.DriverHelper[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named com.apple.bluetoothaudiod." repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)
