Install OK but Fails on 2nd Boot


Computer: Acer Aspire E1-531

CPU: Intel Celeron 1005M @ 1.90 GHz, Ivy Bridge 22nm Technology

Graphics: Generic PnP Monitor, Intel HD Graphics

Motherboard Chipset: Intel Ivy Bridge 09

Network: Atheros AR5B125 Wireless Network Adapter

Audio Card: Realtek High Definition Audio


I installed Yosemite in VirtualBox according to the video “Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite on VirtualBox and VMware With Niresh Version 2 (Download Link)” at

The install is OK. I can run on the installed machine without a problem.

When I boot the first time it asks for the keyboard type which I enter according to the instructions. This login seems to be OK also.

But when I login a second time I get a message box displaying:


"You shut down your computer because of a problem.

If you do nothing, the computer will continue the login in 1 minute."


But there s no countdown from 1 minute and the spinning color wheel is displayed.

The login is never continued and it is hung on the message box.


I have previously installed Mountain Lion and Niresh Mavericks on this computer and they run without a problem.


Why won’t it boot Yosemite?

I faced the same issue. Drag the window to the top most part of your screen and then to bottom couple of times. Your mouse pointer will change from busy to normal. Then you can start by choosing any of the buttons as per your wish.

  • Restart the computer.
  • Open the BIOS. 
  • Go to the Boot tab.
  • Change the order to position the hard disk as the 1st option. 
  • Save these settings.
  • Restart the computer.

If this solution is not compatible or give any result then move to other solution given in Acer Aspire E1-531 Manual.

    • Hello everyone,  I'm trying to install High Sierra (with AMD support) on my AMD 4500m Lenovo G505s laptop. When booting from Clover in EFI with i get some really fast screen log then the pc reboots. Now, i know there isn't a way you could help me without some info/logs, unless i'm missing a major malfunction known on these kind of laptops, so, do you know a way i could prevent it from rebooting in order to at least understand what is causing this problem? Do you think even trying to put OSX on this laptop is worth it? Thank you.
    • Hello, i am trying to install High Sierra on my ASUS X75VB but i am getting multiple errors with the ACPI.
      I believe it is CPU related?

      CPU: Intel Core i5 3320m (Not the original CPU of this laptop!)
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000 & NVIDIA 2GB Geforce 740M
      RAM: DDR3 8GB
      Storage: 120GB SSD (SATA-2)

      I have used the DSDT.aml & SSDT.aml from the following resource:

      My config.plst can be found here:

    • I have Yosemite Zone working on Virtualbox fine.  After downloading High Sierra Zone there is only a dmg and no ISO.  I tried converting the dmg with hdiutil but it goes to 8GB and I get "no bootable media" in Virtualbox.  Has anyone been able to do this yet?
