Cannot boot up

Recommended Posts

I'm a newbie and very stuck getting installed - i would really appreciate some help.

 

The PC I am using has an AMD Athlon II X4 630 Processor - 2.80 GHz. with 6GB RAM.

The Display Adapter is NVIDIA GeForce 9100

The OS is Windows 7 Ultimate, 64-bit.

 

I tried following the instruction post and the video instructions for installing on AMD machine, and failed miserably.  I was unable to get the computer to boot from the USB, with either the .dmg or the .iso file on it (put on the USB flash drive by means of Win32DiskImager, per the instructions text and video).

 

So I set up a VM using VMware Player version 6.0.6 build-2700073.  (I am  not sure if this is the right version to use - it was recommended by a comp sci lecturer).

 

I set up a VM using the Yosemite .iso file.  In the initial install i used an amd64 bootflag.  The VM opens to the Hackintosh splash page, and never gets further.  

 

The VM settings are:

4GB Memory

1 Processor

8GB Hard Disk (IDE)

CD/DVD (IDE) - using the Yosemite .iso file

Network Adapter NAT

Sound Card - Auto Detect

Display - Autodetect

 

The OS shows as Other-64-bit

 

Please help.  My goal is to get a machine going that i can use to load XCode for some coding. If anyone seeing this has any ideas of what i am doing wrong, and what I should do instead, please let me know.

    • Oh, thank you but in the meantime I thought again and have installed High Sierra instead. It works just fine, put a camera, bluetooth, wifi, all working OK. I only have to solve a little problem when doing restart it freezes but after shutdown it comes up good! I have also Win7 on same mbr disk and I start with the installation usb but I think go over to EasyBCD to make a smoother boot. If your experienced I would appreciate very much any hints for helping me in this direction.

    • Hi, i am struggling with installation telling me that it needs less than one minute for eternity. in log it shows that "./postinstall: Using AMD Bronya Kernel" process is running, but 4 hours is too long for "Less than a minute" don't you think ;).    Please help me, i tried to install Mac OS on Intel and AMD processor PC, same problem.  
    • Hola, generalmente se postea en ingles.   Podrias dejar las especificaciones de tu tarjeta madre, por ejemplo: RAM PROCESADOR GPU ETC   Ademas de los componentes que tienes instalados... tengo una pregunta para ti.   Ya comprobaste la compatibilidad de tu ordenador con el sistema operativo?
