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 don't have a clue anymore. I think it's indeed because you hard reboot your laptop. On the other hand, there is a reason for why your setup hangs at "setting up your Mac".
I think it's best if you reinstall again and use -v -x at your first boot. What are your system specifications?

    • hi   ok I have been struggling with this for the past 2 weeks. I have installed and uninstalled Sierra more times than I can count and its been driving me potty .... have only cracked it today.  what you need to do is download create a vanilla usb stick with Sierra.  in order to do this I downloaded Yosemite.zone from the distroes  and created a usb stick.  the installed Yosemite once I was in Yosemite  ( the gfx work in this disto) I downloaded a copy of Sierra from the store..  you will have to search the net for the direct link.. I then created a bootable Sierra usb stick using unit beast, I selected legacy boot loader with no gfx injected. I then installed Sierra from this. once Sierra is installed boot from the usb and select your installed Sierra. iff all goes well you should have a working Sierra install with the gfx acceleration working.  I think the problem is with the type of Mac that Sierra thinks it is with everything working my system info is showing a iMac 27" 14.2 .  I have tried installing a boot loader on the main drive with no success so as a workaround you will have to use your usb stick. pics below of my system info  I hope this helped.  https://photos.app.goo.gl/PToVZOxq0UN9c5BR2 I also just noticed whilst I was trying to get thing working I copied a modified andradeonx4000.kext into the root drive of the Sierra stick. I don't know if this has had any effect on the install might be worth doing the same thing andy
    • Hello, I installed macOS High Sierra 10.13 on my Windows laptop. I installed them so I could dual boot them. It took me 2 day's to perfectionize the macOS because of the .kext files. All the Kext files went good except for graphic and Synaptics. If I install Synaptics, I can move the mouse but it zooms in and it gets stuck back into the corners. So I only installed Generic Touch Pad driver and that works fine. 

      Anyhow I thought everything was perfect until I opened Safari yesterday which came with glitches it stutters when scrolling. It's something like this https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=graphic+glitches+hackintosh only worse. I searched a lot but I found nothing on AMD drivers for my laptop. I really like this macOS, and I want it to be perfect. Is that possible? Maybe with another macOS type/version? O'yeah, when I log in, the vertical lines appear as in the youtube video is that normal or is that because I don't have an graphic driver installed? I really hope on some positive answers, and I thank everyone for his time to read and react on this. Thank you

    • Hello, I got macOS Sierra to work on my vostro 230 and I need to find drivers. I mostly just need graphics drivers (just integrated G41 graphics) and Broadcom Network drivers. > PLEASE DON'T GIVE ME AN EXPLANATION JUST GIVE ME DRIVERS. < CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 2.93 GHZ GPU: I could switch between a EVGA 610 or Intel G41 graphics.
