Doesn't boot anymore?? Something broken?


This morning used the Hackintosh for about 30 minutes, and shut off, totally normal, nothing different.


After coming home this afternoon, it went to:


Boot:0 GPT
Boot:0 Done
And then stopped at "|" with a cursor blinking under it. (usually goes to Niresh boot menu) After several tries, sometimes "" with cursor blinking.
I have another Niresh bootsector on a different drive, but it does exactly the same.
Even my install USB disk does the same.  I can't find anything changed in the BIOS. I tried to start from a Linux boot cd (external USB DVD burner), but that looked like it couldn't read the cd all of a sudden. I could only boot from grub to a Linux disk. I'm quite in a panic, as this is my WORK DESKTOP! It worked pretty well for several weeks! (See my former review) with a few minor probs...
I managed to get into Clover through pressing "3" during boot, but that does not start a installation, not my main, nor my backup. Just a black screen. Help!
Posting from a sluggish Netbook on Linux...

I can understand it's busy here, but still a bit disappointed that nobody could point me in the right direction today, after hours and hours of browsing the web, I found the problem maker!


On page two, the person with a similar problem disconnected other discs then the boot disk and then started to connect his other discs one by one and it proved to be the Time Machine© disc. I disconnected my Time Machine© disc and indeed, it started up again. I only don't understand why I worked OK this morning. Did Time Machine more then just make a backup of my installation disc? in my iStat menu's at unmounted discs I saw before with unmounted discs; 2 "EFI discs", but now just one left, and I really have no idea what these are...


See my picture:




When I used my Time Machine© disc, there were two of these!


Now how do I use my Time Machine© disc again, except using the Scan Single Drive flag, as I want to be able to use the boot loader to pick the right disc.


Someone said: 



Diskutil complains the disk has lost its EFI partition.



Why would my disc need such a partition? And how do I put that back, if I can figure out to start my computer with this disc attached anyway?

    • So I tried to install Mac OS X Sierra on my computer with the following specs :   - Intel Core i5 650 3.20GHZ - 12GB RAM DDR3 - 2 HDD (.1TB , 250GB ) - Nvidia Geforce 210 1GB VRAM DDR3   Everything was cool at first the installation went smoothly with no problems, after setting up everything I noticed that the graphics card has been detected by the systems but there is no acceleration and the resolution is 1024x768, I couldn’t change it   I tried a lot of kext drivers from multiple websites but no success, last kext crashes my os, I start getting black screen after the login page, and the computer restart it self immediately, so I decided to mess with the clover options to find if I can enable the graphics card from there, and WALLAA, the magic happened, I went to clover options then > Graphics Injector Menu > I checked : InjectNvidia option, and I checked : Use NVIDIA WEB Drivers   Note : I already installed Nvidia web drivers previously so you do that too before trying this method   After the restart it took longer then the usual to boot up, but once it got to the login page I noticed that the acceleration is working perfectly and the graphics has no bugs like before.   So until now everything is working fine and I’m enjoying my experience with Mac Sierra  
    • HI, I have the same issue. I have integrated Intel HD4000 and nVidia 620m. I tried with IGPEnabler, GraphicsEnabler and nv_disabled bootflags but none of them helped, it just got me additional kernel panic "AppleUSBHostPort: :disconnect: persistant enumeration failures". I also don't have option to turn off any of my graphic cards in BIOS.  Is there any solution to this issue?
