Stuck at Grey screen, can't type in single user mode?

Question

Hi, first Hackintosh here. 

I've installed via USB and Niresh. I went through the installation process and everything was fine, when done installing it asks to reboot. After that I boot to the Apple logo, screen goes black for a few seconds, then turns grey and I'm stuck there forever. I've tried GraphicsEnabler=No, and yes. I tried to boot into single user mode, but once it runs it's process I am unable to type anything. The text indicator remains solid white, and no keyboard actions are processed. I'm assuming the problem is with my graphics card, I have a GTX 770(rest of the specs below). I was going to follow this guide to attempt fixing it https://www.hackintosh.zone/page/hackintosh/articles/how-to/fix-grey-screen-black-screen-mac-os-x-installation-hackintosh/

Other than that I'm not sure what my problem could be. I'm more than certain it's my GPU. I booted with -x, it got a little farther than the standard boot. It took me to the Apple Logo, a loading bar appeared below it(further than any other try), but then once again we were back at the grey screen. Any help is appreciated. 

Computer specs: 
CPU: Intel Core i5 2500k

SSD/HDD Samsung 840 Pro 250GB. 500GB Seagate HDD
Nvidia GTX 770

Biostar TZ86 motherboard

16GB Patriot Viper Xtreme ram.

Hi, first of all, thanks for the help. 

A simple reinstallation, and reconfiguring of the options solved the problem. Thanks anyway! Now it's on to find a long-range wifi extender compatible with Hackintosh. I'm assuming anything compatible with MAC will work with my Hackintosh? 

That or perhaps I can configure one of my current wifi dongles to work.

I think what I will get is this http://www.asus.com/Networking/PCEAC68/

Gotta wait until payday, and then we will be up and running. Does anyone here know the range? I'm currently using an IDEAwork long range wifi adapter on Windows. Obviously, ASUS SHOULD be better.. But does anyone know for certain? 

 

This is what I currently have for Windows. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA1V00S64887

I'm not sure about the range personally, but I've read some good things about the adapter as a whole. Will probably buy one myself in fact.

 

I have also read a few different comments about it being natively supported. Some users it works fine and appears as an Airport card, however some users have said it doesn't (i.e. this guide): http://www.macbreaker.com/2012/04/most-compatible-wifi-cards-for-your.html (the post is a little outdated)

    • 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?
