System preferences "Loading" HELP!

System preferences "Loading" HELP!

So i just installed mavericks on my laptop, everything works fine (except wifi of course because my card is not compatible)

But i have a problem, when i enter system perferences, and click on Users & Groups, or Network, or ANY other tab except for general. It just says "Loading" but the setting never pops up, only way to close it is to force close the system preferences.. I have tried to repair the disc premissions but that didn't work, still the same problem, can anyone help me? Thanks.

Try to make a new user account and log in there. See if the system preferences panes load. If so, go back to your other account, go to ~/Users/[your username]/Library/Preferences/and move com.apple.systemprefs.plist to your desktop. Reboot your system. A new systemprefs.plist will be created then. See if that fixes your problem.

Thanks for your answer, I already tried that, same problem occurs on a new account, also. If i login to any other account than root, i get a lot of questions marks on apps. Because everytime i start the Hackintosh it says mac osx want to make some changes so i have to login as root to allow it..

Boot into single user mode (bootflag -s), from there type "fsck -fy". 
Reboot.

It's not clear to me as of why "Mac osx wants to make some changes". I know that Niresh has some post-installation tool built in, but you don't need to be root for that.

Thanks i will try that now.

 

Update: Just did it, it ended with "the volume appears to be ok" But i still have the same problem. Can't open stuff in the preferences, like network/users and groups etc. It just get suck on "loading" :(

And yes it's pretty weird that it happens everytime i reboot.. This is what is looks like:

So i don't really get to a "normal" login screen.

Go to Applications -> Utilities -> Keychain acces -> Preferences -> Reset default keychain. Reboot. That should fix the login prompt, hopefully. 

Also, open terminal and run sudo diskutil repairPermissions /
Just to be sure...

Once again thank you for helping! 

When i click on reset default keychain i just get "The Specified Keychain Could Not be Found"

 

I also don't know the password for unlocking "local keychain".. no password that i have set seems to work.

Your installation does not like you that much, lol.

Well, we'll keep trying.

Go to ~/Library/Preferences and delete com.apple.keychainaccess.plist
Go back to ~/Library/ and remove the Keychain folder (or move it to your desktop)
Go to Applications -> Utilities -> Disk Utility. Select your harddisk, click 'first aid' and choose 'repair permissions'. When it's done, click verify disk. It may ask you to repair the disk. Do it.
Reboot.

I know haha, Everytime i install it get's stuck on "setting up your mac" so i have to hard reboot the laptop.. maybe that is why i get all these problems? haha

 

I don't have any file called com.apple.keychainaccess.plist even tho i have hidden files shown, i did verify disk and it said that the volume is OK.. Damn this lol

    • I have the updated Lilu.kext loaded and now tried loading the Nvidia GraphicsFixup.kext too. With the GT 610 installed, there is no difference (no difference with the HD4600 either). I posted a photo where it repeats over and over (3rd item in this Photos album) https://www.icloud.com/sharedalbum/#B0f5M7GFPGEAfHW Should I try re-installing HS with your new AMD release? Try a different video card? Any help is appreciated Niresh! Martin
    • @Niresh i forgot to say that that error was given because i have a Samsung M2 NVMe 960pro. I tried to remove it and it kinda worked but with a lot of bugs even during the installation. I can't remember everything clearly now cause it's been like 4 months ago
    • Thanks. I Have One Ethernet And One Wifi.
