Unable to boot into Yosemite after successful install

Question

Hi all,

 

So near to a breakthrough but I need some help...

 

AMD FX 6300

AMD Radeon R7 260x

Gigabyte GA-970-UD3P

Existing Windows 7 on local HD

 

Using Yosemite 10.10.1 distro via a USB key, it seemed to install successfully to a seperate HDD but after restarting it just boots into Windows, and I can see in the UEFI/BIOS that boot priority has been altered so that my Yosemite HD is at the top.

 

I have booted into the USB and tried to select the Yosemite HD, and this looks right but when I enter the same bootflags as before:

 

amd64 -v npci=0x3000

 

...it says can't find systemlibrarykernelsamd64  and using HFSExplorer, I can see it's there! amd64 is there! If I can find it, why can't it?!

 

I did have the same error when trying to install, BUT I moved the 'amd64' file from the root of the USB and into systemlibrarykernels because that's where it was looking for it. Is that normal? I haven't found anyone else who had to do that but it worked for the install, annoying now it doesn't work to boot.

 

Can anyone please help?

 

 

Many thanks!

 

Tom

Hi Tom;

 

My name is Tom as well. What are the chances? lol.

 

If you used /amd to boot the installer, then you do not need the kernel boot flag to boot Yosemite when finished. I have amd fx 8350. my boot flags for the installer were:

 

/amd GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x3000 cpus=1 -f -v

 

Once installed my boot flags for Yosemite installation (and I use clover)

 

ahcidisk=1 debug=8 dmar=0 -force64 GraphicsInjector=No npci=0x3000 -v

 

I have 2 EVGA GTX 660s thus the GraphicsInjector=No, which is the same as GraphicsEnabler=No in chameleon. You may or may not need it depending on your graphics card. And you probably won't need the -force64. I have it for fun.

 

I had Windows 8.1 installed first, made hfs partition and installed yosemite on that. Used Bootdiskutility to install clover to usb. (Edit: I have both Windows 8.1 and Yosemite on same HDD)

And then copy the clover files and folders from that to the EFI partition on my Windows drive. Gives me the option to select Windows or Yosemite. Works well for me.

 

Note: When you use the flag amd64 OS X defaults to looking for the kernel in /System/Library/Kernels/

 

When you add a slash in front (/amd64) it will look for it in the root of the installer/installation

    • Hi guys, I installed the Hackintosh Sierra Zone image and most things work except my graphics. It detects as AMD R9 290X when I use FakeID 0x67B01002 on boot, however I only get 7MB of VRAM with no QE. My screen also tears as well. Hope someone can help me - Intel Core i5 2500K - AMD R9 290X 4GB - ASUS P8Z77-V LX
    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have
