Hackintosh can't boot: all kexts assertion failed

Hackintosh can't boot: all kexts assertion failed

Worked late on my Yosemite Zone Hackintosh build I've been using for a year now. I peacefully shut it down, and went to sleep. The next morning as I woke up, my Hackintosh didn't want to boot up so I booted in verbose mode (my bootloader is Chimera) to see what's going on.

The system did a fsck at the beginning, returning "The volume appears to be OK", after which every single Apple kext prints out an "assertion failed" message which leaves my system hanging.

 

My specs are as follows:

EFI Partition (200MB), OSX Partition (100GB), Recovery HD (650MB), Windows 10 Partition (80GB), MSR, Data Partition (250GB FAT32), Ubuntu 16.04 Partition (50 GB)

 

Happens consistently on every reboot, so I can easily reproduce it.

Things I've tried:

  • -f flag
  • kext-dev-mode=1 flag
  • toggling GraphicsEnabler
  • combinations of the three above
  • trying to boot from GRUB (though probably fails because my OSX is installed in BIOS mode even though it's a GPT disk, while Windows and Ubuntu are running on UEFI mode)
  • Deleting VoodooHDA.kext, as I've had minor troubles with it a while back

None of these helped at all. I do have access to single-user mode though.

 

I've also noticed a strange line of output during verbose, something along the lines of BSD root: major 0, minor 7. Assuming this means disk0s7, does this mean my OSX is trying to boot off the wrong partition (the Ubuntu one) instead, explaining why it fails on all kexts (because they aren't there)? My OSX partition is located at disk0s2. I feel like this has something to do with the issue.

I'm just about ready to reinstall OSX entirely, I've already backed up all of my data and ready to wipe the partition if needed, though it would be nice to see if the problem is fixable on its own. Anyone got ideas?

    • Hello, friends, I need your help. I am using  Motherboard: Asus H81M-CS Processor:  Intel Core i3-4130 Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4400 I connected monitor via VGA port.   Everything is working great. Only issue right now I am having is graphics with VGA Port. Can any one suggest me to solve this issue?
    • It's because when you update, the kernel is replaced & so are the kexts. You need to either know how to use Terminal to copy the files after booting into your USB OR hook up your Start Disk Hard Drive to another Hack or Mac & copy over the proper kernel to System/Library/Kernels/ & also use kextwizard to install the kexts required as well & then repair cache. It's not that complicated if you have another Mac or Hack(intosh) to connect your drive to. There are some tutorials online. I'm by no means a pro at this at all, but I couldn't believe no one had replied to anyone here. I'm actually in the exact same situation, just finished updating my Yosemite Zone 10.10 to 10.10.5 through AppStore & it won't boot back in, then I remembered when I did this last time I had to connect my HD to another mac & copy over files, but I can't remember exact files so I came here to look for them & found this thread. I have been successful in getting an old MSI Platinum35 mobo with the 771/775 mod & Xeon x5460 with AMD 6850 running Sierra. I have been successful getting a newer MSI A88XM Gaming Mobo with x4 760k & AMD 6670 running Mavericks, then Yosemite, then High Sierra, and recently tested Sierra & it worked too. One thing though is that with Sierra & High Sierra the screen flickered different colors & I needed to download a thing called SwitchResZ & change the setting from "Billions of Colors" to "Millions of Colors" & it fixed it both times, even after I uninstalled it, the screen flickering was gone,.. So I have been through a few different processes (not including the updates like 10.10 to 10.10.5) But I am the farthest thing from a pro. Just followed tutorials, googled  & used distros, I think DeeKay was first one for Mavericks, then Yosemite Zone, Sierra Zone, & finally High Sierra Zone. But my digi 002r worked on all with the AVID 003 family 11.1.3 driver, except when it came to high sierra. For some reason it has sync issues with Midi/audio. Says something about not recognizing clock speed of 43,121Khz or something (cuz it should be 44.1Khz, or 48Khz etc) But it only happens on High Sierra. On Yosemite I had to do a trick cuz the play bar's timing was off, to fix it I went into bios & changed my multiplier from 100 to 103 so instead of my cpu running at 3.6Ghz, it was like 3.9Ghz. But for some reason that fixed it & Yosemite was stable, rarely (if ever) did it crash. But Sierra crashes all the time so I can't make music on it anymore, for some reason I don't think it was like this at first...maybe something I installed. Only reason why I changed was to keep up with Logic X updates. My Sierra build is up to date with Logic X 10.4 & Digi 002r runs great (11.1.3 driver) but like I said it crashes alot & I don't know why. So my thought was to return to Yosemite 10.10 & update to 10.10.5 like I did b4 & downgrade Logic X to 10.3 or 10.2.4(can't remember). So I got to find those files & instructions again to put the proper kernel & texts back that the update erased. That's what ya'll need to do as well. When I find it I will come back & edit my post or just post a new one.
    • Hai,

      Is there a way to increase video memory of a

    • So I tried to install Mac OS X Sierra on my computer with the following specs :   - Intel Core i5 650 3.20GHZ - 12GB RAM DDR3 - 2 HDD (.1TB , 250GB ) - Nvidia Geforce 210 1GB VRAM DDR3   Everything was cool at first the installation went smoothly with no problems, after setting up everything I noticed that the graphics card has been detected by the systems but there is no acceleration and the resolution is 1024x768, I couldn’t change it   I tried a lot of kext drivers from multiple websites but no success, last kext crashes my os, I start getting black screen after the login page, and the computer restart it self immediately, so I decided to mess with the clover options to find if I can enable the graphics card from there, and WALLAA, the magic happened, I went to clover options then > Graphics Injector Menu > I checked : InjectNvidia option, and I checked : Use NVIDIA WEB Drivers   Note : I already installed Nvidia web drivers previously so you do that too before trying this method   After the restart it took longer then the usual to boot up, but once it got to the login page I noticed that the acceleration is working perfectly and the graphics has no bugs like before.   So until now everything is working fine and I’m enjoying my experience with Mac Sierra  
    • HI, I have the same issue. I have integrated Intel HD4000 and nVidia 620m. I tried with IGPEnabler, GraphicsEnabler and nv_disabled bootflags but none of them helped, it just got me additional kernel panic "AppleUSBHostPort: :disconnect: persistant enumeration failures". I also don't have option to turn off any of my graphic cards in BIOS.  Is there any solution to this issue?
