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.
