Slow booting - OS X Yosemite Zone Hackintosh 10.10 - Hackintosh Zone Jump to content

Question

Hello everyone, I am new to hackintosh and my build is almost working good but I am facing some problems regarding boot time...

 

My hackintosh installation process as well as post installation process ran into problems in many different ways but finally I was able to manage the VGA and network working like charm but till now I am not able to solve the boot  problem, that problem may not be that important to some people but that is surely embarrassing for me.

 

The problem is with the boot time, I think the boot time of my hackintosh is not so normal , the loading screen with niresh hackintosh logo (pic attached)  is taking one minute and twelve seconds to fill out the area and i think that should be 20-30 seconds at all.

 

I had tried many ways to fix that issue but was unable to do so, hence I am posting it here because it is quite clear that I can't solve that problem without help from the hackintosh pros....

 

By going into the verbose mode i noticed that there are many errors in the boot process like unable to locate something etc.

 

I also stuck at missing Bluetooth controller error, i solved that by disable graphics enabler but that error still appear in verbose mode but after stucking for some seconds the computer boots fine, now I think there is something to do with this missing Bluetooth controller error because it is the last line before booting up, I tried some ways to solve that error (one was by removing two apple Intel kext from single user mode)  but it still appears!!

 

Shut down can also be an issue, normally after clicking shut down the monitor goes black and shut down within some seconds or immediately, sometimes it takes longer to shut down and sometime some strange small white texts appear in black screen with some errors i think. I tried EvoReboot but that works perfectly for only one time (i can see the spinning wheel with black background that time), that is not working from the next boot.

 

 

Here is my Config:

 

Processor: AMD FX™-4100 Quad core

Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 5450

Motherboard: Asus M5A78L-M LX V2 (Simple BIOS no UEFI)

Ethernet: Realtek® 8111E , 1 x Gigabit LAN Controller(s)

Audio: Realtek® ALC887 8-Channel High Definition "Sound" CODEC *2

 

Here are some more details that can be useful

 

** I have simple bios (no uefi), so there was no need to patch dsdt or other stuff..., In the BIOS menu i only edited SATA mode to AHCI to boot properly, nothing more is edited till now.  

** My Hackintosh version is 10.10.3

** Booting Yosemite Zone from the pendrive is also slow.  

** I installed hackintosh on a HDD (not SSD)

** I have to use GraphicsEnabler=No and npci=0x3000 every time (technically) to boot

** Now I am dual booting hackintosh with win 8.1 (same thing occurred with single booting)

 

Now i am fully depending on the pros to solve that problem, any type of help will be super highly appreciated. :)  

 

Thanks for reading....good night.

    • 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)
