Basic boot flags for the Macintosh System or Hackintosh Systems

Question

"GraphicsEnabler=Yes" This is needed for Intel HD 4000 installation.

 

"cpus=1" This may be needed for some 2011 socket

 motherboards and some laptop

 computers. TSC Sync should be selected for those 2011

 socket motherboards during install.

 

"UseKernelCache=No" This command is needed for 

 computers that freeze at any point

 (including "PCI Configuration Begin" line) 

 or computers that act weird this can be a CMOS reset

 or ignoring other SATA ports issue.

 

By entering this command, ElliottRTC.kext and modified IOPCIFamily.kext will be loaded during install.

 

"-v" Verbose mode. (Basically tells you wants happening  

 during boot up.)

 

"-x" Safe mode (Basically boots your system with the bare

  minimum kexts.)

 

 

"-s" = Single user mode. Command line only mode. Allows  

 you to run commands as root to fix system.

 

"-F" = Ignore boot setting in Boot.plist

 

"USBBusFix=Yes" This option is to fix USB related issues of

 some motherboards that can cause

 freeze or USB ports to fail.

 

"npci=0x3000" Computers that freeze on "[ PCI 

 Configuration Begin ]" line may try this command.

 

"ATIConfig=xx" "xx" is the ATI framebuffer name for target  

 model (search it on google). 

 This may be needed for some Intel HD 4000 + ATI gpu  

 computers to boot with "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" command.

    • 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)
