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 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      
    • Hi everyone. Here are my specs MOBO :Gigabyte Z68 XP UD3 (1155) GPU : HD 6870 1gb CPU Intel i7 2600k (1155) 60gb SATA SSD   MOBO is using legacy Bios. This machine has served me well for years. I tripped a circuit breaker a few weeks ago and now it's stuck in a boot loop. I have setup a new bootable USB to reinstall but for some reason the boot loop is happening when I startup from this as well. I can manage to get to the desktop using the safe mode boot flag (-x) but after a few moments, the desktop freezes and the computer reboots. I used the 10.10.1 disc image to create the new USB stick I am not sure if this could be causing the boot problem in the USB. Should I have used the 10.10.0? At first I suspected a hardware issue but I left the computer on for two days at in the bios screen and it stayed on just fine. Hoping someone can give me a hand figuring out which boot flags can get me going again or how I can reinstall the OS. I really need to get past the freeze/reboot cycle I am in. I am almost ready to nuke this thing and install windows
    • i also have this problem if you will finde the solution please inform me right away and thank you
    • I built a Hackintosh on a GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P in 2010, and upgraded it to Sierra about 4 months ago. It's been working great until a few days ago.  The clock now is losing time, while the computer is on and running. I've been working on the computer all morning, and have had to bump it forward to the current time it 3-4x. Right now it says 9:40am, but it's really 9:47am.  I have "Set time and date automatically" set in settings and "Apple Americas/U.S. (time.apple.com.)" selected on the drop down. Deselecting it, and selecting it again, brings the clock back to the current time.  Is this a hardware issue or a software issue? Do I have to replace the CR2032 on the motherboard? If so - why? The computer is on, and running, why would it need that battery to maintain the time?       
    • i am trying to install yosemite on a asus m2n sli deluxe chipset NVIDIA amd Athlon 64 X2 5600+ ATI Radeon HD 4800   and still i am stuck at pci configuration begin or console error. i tried several kernels and graphic cards with no results please help with these boot flags ive tried -v -x ncpi=0x3000 nv_disable=1 -v -x ncpi=0x3000 nv_disable=1 GraphicsEnabler=No
