  1. Really strange error on first boot

    This seems to be a common error with Yosemite (It happened to me) if you have an "Unsupported" CPU (i.e. anything you needed to put a Kernel argument into the boot loader). See Niresh's article at https://www.hackintosh.zone/page/hackintosh/articles/installing-yosemite-in-unsupported-processors-and-most-amd-processor
  2. This is a good step forward and very nearly works on my system (AMD FX6100 and NVidia GFX750). Followed instructions and all loaded OK although graphics are very slow and a bit jittery. Biggest issue is I get kernel panics whenever I shut down. System also tends to lock up occasionally. Can only assume there was something else it hadn't fully installed when it froze.
  3. Also tried copying amd1 kernel into root and running /amd1 -s but this had same effect.
  4. Unfortunately this does not work for me. As I have an AMD6100 CPU this wont load with -s mode (this caused kernel panic) and thus I cant get it to load into Linux (Single user) mode.
  5. 10.10.1 no amd fx kernal

    I have finally got this going by following Niresh's new instructions at https://www.hackintosh.zone/page/hackintosh/articles/how-to/installing-yosemite-in-unsupported-intel-processors-and-most-amd-processors/ Basically this involved installing with /amd1 kernel boot option and at the end of install copying this kernel onto the installed drive. Now works perfectly (Well as perfectly as it did with earlier version. I still cant get Audio to work on my ASUS M5A78L-M motherboard).
  6. 10.10.1 no amd fx kernal

    I can confirm that none of these options works for me. /amd produces immediate kernel panic. /amd1 runs through main install but then after reboot produces a panic during load. /amd2 /amd64 has same effect. npci=0x3000 has no effect on any option. My system is FX6100 with Nvidia GTX750 (I always choose the "enable default Nvidia drivers" option). No option will boot even in safe mode. Yosemite version 10.10 installed without issue.
  7. The /amdfx kernel option seems to disappeared from the 10.10.1 ISO . Have tried all the other /amd options but they all produce either kernel panics or crash after install. AMD FX6100 processor, Nokia gtx750 graphics, says m5-88-m motherboard. What tipn should I use with an fx6100
  8. This is probably a common problem with VirtualBox. I have an AMD FX6100 with Nvidia GTZ750 Graphics and get exactly the same issue. Get both with Yosemite 10.10 and 10.10.1 distros. It loads OK on VMWare so assume some kind of VirtualBox incompatibility.
