boot error (dell optiplex 990)


Hey guys, 

  Im new to this forum and im having a little issue with boot. I got all the way through the install and reboot. I got to the "yosemite zone" boot screen. I have it on logging so i can see everything going on. It seems to get stopped after not seeing a bluetooth device and then after a LONG time it errors with "BUG in process suhelperd[18556]: over-released legacy external boost assertions (1 total, 1 external, 0 legacy-external)". I have looked around and can not find much on the "[18556]" part. i see i can hit a number key on the boot screen and get a "Boot:" option not sure if i can put a command in or if i can some how edit the boot options.I have tried the  -x command at that "Boot:" option and it does load different but just reboots.  Any help would be great this is a gift for a friend.


dell optiplex 990 (service tag: 30psvr1)

16gb ram

seagate barracuda 320gb

asus Radeon hd6230 (added)

I installed the Chamele standard boot loader in the custom option during install.


Thanks to any help some one...ANYONE can give me!

    • 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?
