Computer can only boot in safe mode Yosemite 10.10.1

Question

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.

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....

    • I previously installed yosemite on my pc. It worked well. But I can only boot the yosemite by cliking F10 advanced boot option and have to select my Hard drive. It didn/t boot automatically. So I just mounted the EFI folder and replaced the files from the original EFI I got from a link. Probelm started. So I planned to install Yosemite again. Keyboard not worked. So I boot back windows 10 and replace everything. But when I try to install yosemite again, sill I'm facing the probelm. Keyboard not working at selecting Yosemite zone screen. Keyboard is well functioning at BIOS screen, advanced boot option screen, even in my windows 10. But it freeze at the below screen. I tried everything, changed my Boot mode to UEFI and Legacy, reset CMOS by removing CMOS battery, restarted minimum 50 times, Changed my keyboard from USB to PS2, changed my USB keyboard port to every port. Please help me to solve this.   My System Config :   Intet i3-2120 CPU@3.30GHz 1 TB Hard drive 8 GB Ram 2GB GT610 graphic card Keyboard freeze at this screen.
