Clean install of Yosemite wont reboot

Recommended Posts

Hello,

so i get my basics together at Maverics but i had some problems with updates of Maverics and AMD kernels so I moved on to Yosemite.

And the problem is that my computer will never reboot even at end of the installation. The loading circle just freezes and I cant move my mouse or turn off numlock...

I have reboot fix checked in chameleon wizard but it does not help.

PC specs:

AMD Phenom II X4 940

ASUS Crosshair II Formula

4GB ram

Gainward GTX260

thanks for your help and cheers

But Yosemite is installed and you can boot into it, right? You can not reboot from within the installed Yosemite? Try EvoReboot from here

Yep, I found the EvoReboot and it works perfectly. 

Now I am back at Mavericks again, reboot, graphics and everything is working very well. (I had some troubles at Yosemite with graphics..) 

Now I am just struggling with icloud and imessages (i dont mention iTunes which stopped working after update to 12.12 version) - where I think I am stuck somewhere between invalid s/n and using chameleon as a bootloader - i have read that its better to use Clover but i dont have UEFI mb so idk. Everymac.com recognised my s/n as mac pro 4,1 but apple check says that it is not valid. I guess that i will have to try few generated keys (from chameleon wizard) tomorrow again, since the apple check thing has limited number of check per day i guess.

When Apple says that it isn't a valid serial number it is a good thing. If it says that it's a valid number, it means that someone else registered that number already :D Clover works on legacy BIOS too. Just make sure that you install the legacy bootloader.

    • 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?

      Mainboard: HM76 (X75VB SOCKET 0)
      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:
       https://github.com/xxx10101xxx/ThinkPad-X230-macOS/tree/master/i5-3320M

      My config.plst can be found here:

      Thanks in advance!

    • 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?
