OS X Yosemite Installer doesn't boot AMD FX CPU

Question

I have: 

1. AMD FX 8350 CPU at stock speed CPU

2. Gigabyte GA990FXA-UD3 Revision 4 motherboard with the F3i Beta UEFI/BIOS update

3. EVGA GeForce GTX 660 3Gb Graphics Card (I'm using the DVI-D Connector)

4. 1 2TB Seagate HDD and 1 160WD HDD (I want to install OS X on this one)

 

I have the OS X Yosemite Zone distro on my 8Gb flash drive.

My computer can boot to the screen where I'm asked to type in boot flags.

Since I have an AMD FX CPU, I type -amdfx -v

 

However, after pressing "return", it starts loading a BUNCH  of files, but then it restarts my computer.

I've tried -f -v, etc.. but none actually boot the system.

 

I remember, when this used to be Niresh, I installed a Niresh Distro, that mostly worked, but I don't remember which one it was.

 

Any help?

first of all, yosemite 10.10.1 doesn't have /amdfx boot option, so i suppose you are on 10.10. 

first question: did you read any installation guide?

second: did you set anything in bios?

third: did you try to boot with arguments npci=0x2000 PCIRootUID=1?

 

My specs are this:

AMDfx 8350

ASrock 990fx EXTREME 4

16GB Ram Corsair Vengeance

Zotac Nvidia GeeForce 660 ti 2GB

and lot of hd....

Currently I'm on Yosemite 10.10.1 and it works.... it was not so easy to do it, but is possible :)

any news?

 

Answer to your first question:

yes I did read a guide: http://tinyurl.com/lbenq52 which was Guide 2 of this link: http://tinyurl.com/khhal3e

I followed practically all that I could up to step 4. I do have an old iMac G4, but I wouldn't want to try to restore the .dmg file on it because it has USB 1.1 ports which are extremely slow, unless I absolutely have to.

Answer to your second question:

What I changed in the UEFI was what was mentioned in the first link I gave. The person who wrote the guide had an Intel CPU, and a Gigabyte motherboard, so some options weren't there.

Answer to your third question:

I tried the boot arguments you told me, but they didn't work either. It would load some files, and then restart. I also tried them with -amdfx -v, etc.. and it kept restarting.

Ofter many attempts i solved a lot of erros during the installation, and finnaly i found out that macOs does not suport SSD. I created a patch for my ssds but now, i have this error: ACPI ERROR; and last: AppleNVMe Assert failed;  2 SSD: // Inject bogus class-code for NVMe SSD to prevent IONVMeFamily.kext from loading

    • 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)
