MSI B85M-P33 - Can't boot installer, instant restart no matter what flags are used




After a few years long break from Hackintosh I'm trying to get back with my "new" PC. Unfortunately I didn't build it with Hackintosh in mind so I guess my motherboard is incompatible / has some problems. First, the spec:


CPU: i5 4440

GPU: Gigabyte GTX 660 2GB




I downloaded latest Niresh Yosemite and made a bootable USB using TransMac. However, once I boot up from it and choose "Yosemite-Zone", my PC instantly restarts just after seeing Hackintosh Zone logo for a second. I tried booting with all kinds of flags. GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No, PCIRootUID=0/1, -x, -v, ncpci=0x2000 etc. Nothing, always the same. When I boot in verbose mode I can't even see any error. Back in the days when I was installing Snow Leo, booting with -v resulted with installer getting stuck at the error so I could see what's going on. Now its different, even when I boot with -v I can see kexts loading up but then it just restarts without giving me an error.


I set all the things I could in my MOBO's settings according to installation guide. Booting mode is set from "UEFI" to "Legacy+UEFI" (that's all I have, don't have typical "Legacy" or "UEFI=Disabled"), HPET is enabled (I can only choose enabled/disabled, don't have an option to set it to 64-bit), disks run on AHCI. I tried booting using my NVIDIA GTX 660 and  internal graphics - always the same. I even unplugged completely my GTX 660 and run strictly on internal card - same thing. I even tried to unplug all the hard drives just to see if the installer boots up - nothing helps.


So I guess the last thing that might prevent me from booting up is my MOBO. I digged through all the settings and I set everything correctly as much as I could - the settings on my mobo are kind of limited so not much to change :/ Is it possible that I need to patch my BIOS? I heard there is some pmpatch and uefipatch. Which one to choose? Is UEFIPatch really needed if I'm not using full UEFI boot mode?

    • Hi, Succesfully installed High Sierra. First time login with succes. After a restart the same login credentials were not accepted, so login failed. Login credentials were not changed! How to proceed? Thnx! H.    
    • Ok i tried right now. It started the installer. I did tools>disks and i tried to format one of my hdds in macos format and it gave me error. Then the hdd vanished. I went on win10 to format the hdd and have it back. When i went back to the bootable usb it gave me error. Here's everything   Edit: ok i tried to boot first the other partition of the usb (the not EFI one) and it got stuck like it did before. Now i booted the efi one and it's booting fine like before. I'm gonna check if i can initiate the hdd. Allright it booted and started some kind of configuration. I waited for it to end and I did a reboot. The problem is that the resolution is too low and i can't see properly Clover's window. What can I do?
    • @Niresh    it says  uhci controller  ehci controller setting legacy usb off on controller legacy USB off done   my motherboard is gigabyte EP43-UD3L can you help to set up bios as it is different from the pics posted    i am using the chameleon bootloader enoch r2839 could this be a problem?
    • I changed the config.plist but still I don't reach the installation menu. It freezes at Apple screen at 60% of progress. In chameleon way (the cmd like) it still says "host-level exception" trying to change values but don't go furthermore. What I can do?  
    •  there was a solution back in the day with mavericks. Well... unlucky. i'll fix the rest (Wifi, Sound and webcam(?) ) then update the main thread for others ^^' Thanks.
