Stuck in Clover Boot Menu / possible GPU issue?

Recommended Posts

hey guys,
got a running hackintosh (OS X Lion) and would love to do a clean install of Yosemite or El Capitan, here are the specs:
EVGA SR-X Mainboard
2x 6core intel xeon e5 2ghz
geforce gtx 580 sc
I think I got all the BIOS settings right, I get to the Clover boot menu, but from there I can't get to the actual installer.
using -v as flag, it states:
Error allocating 0x800 pages at 0x000000000b400000 alloc type 2
Error loading kernel cache (0x9)
Boot failed, sleeping for 20 seconds before exiting...
using -v as flag and InjectNVidia OFF, it states:
Read error 0xc
Error lading kernel cache
Boot failed, sleeping for 20 seconds before exiting...
people have suggested removing the GPU during installation, however, since the SR-X doesn't have any video out onboard that's a bit tricky...
I've also tried using the Yosemite-Zone.dmg and got stuck after the boot option menu (HDD or USB) on a grey screen stating: can't find /mach_kernel or so. no visible option to enter any flags, so I ditched that option..
any idea how I can get that thing up and running? if it really has to do with the GPU, what can I do to disable it if I have no onboard video out?
appreciating any help, thanks in advance!!

    • I have searched all over and there is a LOT of info on what to do to install Mac OS w/e once you have set up the Mac VM. I am brand new at this so I may just be missing something very simple. How do I get from this... To this....  
    • Hello everyone,  I'm trying to install High Sierra (with AMD support) on my AMD 4500m Lenovo G505s laptop. When booting from Clover in EFI with i get some really fast screen log then the pc reboots. Now, i know there isn't a way you could help me without some info/logs, unless i'm missing a major malfunction known on these kind of laptops, so, do you know a way i could prevent it from rebooting in order to at least understand what is causing this problem? Do you think even trying to put OSX on this laptop is worth it? Thank you.
    • Hello, i am trying to install High Sierra on my ASUS X75VB but i am getting multiple errors with the ACPI.
      I believe it is CPU related?

      CPU: Intel Core i5 3320m (Not the original CPU of this laptop!)
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000 & NVIDIA 2GB Geforce 740M
      RAM: DDR3 8GB
      Storage: 120GB SSD (SATA-2)

      I have used the DSDT.aml & SSDT.aml from the following resource:

    • I have Yosemite Zone working on Virtualbox fine.  After downloading High Sierra Zone there is only a dmg and no ISO.  I tried converting the dmg with hdiutil but it goes to 8GB and I get "no bootable media" in Virtualbox.  Has anyone been able to do this yet?
