Basic boot flags for the Macintosh System or Hackintosh Systems


"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.

    • 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.
