Computer can only boot in safe mode Yosemite 10.10.1

Question

flgd    0

Hi all,

I have installed Yosemite Niresh on my computer but I can only boot in safe mode (see my config at the bottom).

I managed to complete the Install with the following boot flags:

  • /amd64 PCRootUID=1 npci=0X2000 GraphicsEnabler=No USBBusFix=Yes -v -x

 

I managed to sucessfully reboot a few times without any flags, however the resolution was 1024x768.

 

I installed the graphics kexts Ati Radeon HD 5750 (0x68BE1002) from the download section using kext wizard + repair permissions and cache reduild, then rebooted

  • on the system report graphics/displays shows that the graphics card is not recognized, no kexts are loaded, the monitor is not recognized either, the resolution is 1400x1050 at that stage

 

Out of desperation I installed SwitchResX, filled in the monitor info and the graphics resolution, then rebooted

  • Without any flags: stuck on grey screen prior to login with spinning beach ball on the left corner
  • With -x flag: boot all the way through and logged in successfully in full resolution  (system report shows all the correct info display and graphics)

 

Tried to tweak the boot.plist with chameleon wizard (-F, -S, PCIRoot=0, GraphicsEnabler=Yes...) one change at the time + reboot, still no luck, can't narrow down to anything in particular, I cannot boot my computer other than in safe mode.

 

I have installed Yosemite 3 times now, trying to do things in a different order but the result is always the same. SwitchResX definitely helps to get the GC and monitor recognized but I believe it is also responsible for preventing me to boot normally. Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.

 

Asus M5 A97 R2.0 (no Integrated Graphics Card) / AMD Phenom II X4 955 / 8 GB RAM / Asus Radeon HD5750 / 500GB HD / Samsung SyncMaster 2494HM (1920x1080)

Little update, I can now boot normally since I have removed AMDRadeonX3000.kext. I have full grahics resolution but no acceleration. I suppose it's better than a kick in the teeth....

    • Hey!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • 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)
