Installation Stuck on Gray Screen with Apple Logo

Recommended Posts



I'm trying to install latest released Yosemite hackintosh by on my Lenovo Y5070-C.


This is my system details:


- Intel Core i7 4710HQ 2.50GHz

- 16GB Ram DDR3


- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 4GB


So, I think my laptop supports it perfectly!


When I'm trying to boot the installation process of Yosemite hackintosh with /haswell command, a new gray screen with an Apple logo appears; This is not the problem! the problem is when the progress bar (below the Apple logo) stuck on the middle of loading the installation process!


Anyway, I tried to boot the installation with commands like -x and -v and other stuff. After entering these commands, my laptop just reboots instantly! The only command that doesn't cause any reboot, is /haswell which has the problem I mentioned.


BTW, I just followed this instruction:

And I exactly followed the rules. Before I begin this installation, I completely erased my HDD and I didn't even make any partition for it.


So... What should I do exactly? I need to install hackintosh badly! :(

@ Your the best! :)


Actually I tried flags /haswell -x and my problem finally solved! after entering the flag you mentioned, I finally relieved from the "progress bar stucking" issue; but I still stuck on the language choosing section.


Anyway, there is another problem, which I'm still don't know what to do! I've installed Hackintosh Zone perfectly; when I'm trying to boot it, there is another gray screen appears and this time, I have Hackintosh Zone logo in red and progress bar below it, which is stucking again!


Boot screen is somehow graphical and selective, so I can't really type anything in it. I can only choose how the OS boots; and trust me! I've chosen every single option, and every single of them has some issues! the only one that redirects me to that screen I mentioned is the simple boot!


Other boot options that I can choose are "Boot Verbose", "Boot Ignore Caches", "Boot Single User".


I appreciate if anyone can help me with this kind of situation :x

just thought you said you installed it ok in the end but now youhave the grey screen again when booting use the /haswell -v -f kext-dev-mode=1 -s

when at bash type what it say above like /sbin/ xxx/-fsck press enter then 2nd /sbin/xxx/ -rw then enter i think it is then type grafix backupall press enter reboot then retry without -s that should remove graphics kext and use the vesa graphics no gc/qi ect but once booted install the graphics ect you need and let nirsh scripts run at 1st boot till safari opens its self
