Screen Freezes at Setup Screen


gameus    0

Perhaps you can help me. I've been trying all night. I've installed maverick 8 different times trying out different things and different boot flags.


My Specs:

AMD Phenom II x4 CPU

M5A99X EVO Asus Motherboard with UEFI

GTX 660ti GPU



My Problem:I can get Mavericks to boot up after installing just fine, but I can't get past the welcome screen. The system freezes everytime I try to set it up. I first thought my mouse and keyboard weren't working, but then I made it as far as "Finding a Network" and "Creating a User" and when I made it there, the spinning loading circles both froze. And everytime I try booting into safe mode (-x) I get the apple logo with a ban circle (circle with a slash through it) right on top of the apple and then proceeds to load forever.


I've tried both amd and amd64 for launching the Niresh Installer and both times they've installed just fine and booted into Mavericks just fine, but the setup screen still froze.

I've tried a combination of numerous flags




-x (this just doesn't work at all and when combined with -v it says "still waiting for root device")


I've tried customizing the install numerous ways, installing graphics, removing graphics, removing laptop touchpad kext and enabling other boot options. And everytime the welcome screen just freezes. Nothing changes it.


I finally used the -v flag and booted up normally, the setup screen freezes and I get this error.


panic (cpu 2) *some mumbo jumbo) No HPETs available incorrect cpu configuration. Something along those lines. The only HPET option in my motherboard is HPET Enabled/Disabled. And it is indeed on. So is AHCI.

    • 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[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named" 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)
