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


FinnenHawke    0



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?

    • Saludos!   Tengo el mismo error (RAM a 667mhz), con una placa base ASUS (y mi cpu es el fx 6300).   Lograste solucionarlo?
    • Hi guys. Well, this is my second day of troubles, I touched everything, I installed max like 5 times in the same day, trying to figure out things and well. My Mac it display my graphic card on the #About this Mac tab With 2047MB ( So I guess all is right ) I installed the latest nvida drivers and on clover I activated the NvidaWeb. The problem is the resolution. Max resolution allowed is 1280 x 1024 and 800 x 600. I used to boot with nvd_drv 1 with nvd dry 0, I used to boot with all that things, and without them.  BUT No way to fix the resolution. Someone knows what-s going wrong and how can I fix it? Bdw im using iMac14,2 and OS X Sierra 10.12.3 Im connecting to the screen with DVI adapter. ( Maybe that causes the problem ) But it shows Im running 2047 MB so... idk why I can't change resolution. Thanks! ================================= SOLVED EDIT: Hi guys, in Display Resolution, I just set it in "Default for display" and after that pressing "THE WINDOWS BUTTON KEY, IN MY CASE, IDK WHAT KEY IS THAT IN MAC KEYBOARD, I THINK THE CONTROL ONE OR IDK" PRESSING that key I selected Scaled, and it appears more options and resolutions. There is a video on youtube about that called "Mac OS X Display Resolution" If someone has the same trouble.
