First Boot problems

Recommended Posts

so i restored the .dmg file a 16 gb usb drive with win32diskimager, and when i boot from it, i get the OS selection screen but nothing farther. When i hit enter on the correct OS, the screen goes blank and nothing happens. When I add -x and -v to the boot, this is what comes up:


It just hangs there and doesn't do anything. Can anyone help?

Post your Hardware please.


I have an AMD FX 8350 processor. To install i use the flag amd, and for the first and the rest of boots i use PCIRootUID=1

So you should print all the flags and try all, maybe use google searching for processor, so you loose less time.

Same problem

I did -v and looked and Im getting stuck on appleintelcpupowermanagement timed out. I don't know how to inject the patched kext onto the usb installer. Any help?


My system:

Dell Inspiron 530s (Foxcon G33M02 mobo, socket 775)

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 2.6GHz

Ram: 6GB DDR2 666MHz

GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 5570 1GB GDDR5


Any additional details will be provided


some other stuff might not be needed:

USB disk installer: Sandisk Cruzer 32GB

Mouse: R.A.T. 3 (I've had problems with this mouse in the past and I'm wondering if any new problems will arise later)


I'm running iAtkos ML2 10.8.2 ATM with 90% functionality other than sound


I don't mind reinstalling os x as long as it works
