  1. Hey, I'm new to Hackintosh, trying out my first install. Can boot but hang at ACPI System State (S0 S3 S4 S5) [s3] when trying to launch/install OSX. I've read and followed a couple of guides (including ones specific to my mobo). Flashed my bios to the latest stable, followed recommended BIOS settings. I've tried a bunch of different flags, and have the DSDT file for my mobo but I am under the impression this should be applied post-install. As far as I've been able to research, I should be ready-to-go peripheral wise, and as I understand this error is usually caused by an onboard graphics chip. Does this mean OSX is failing to see/initialise my gfx card? Could this be related to the new BIOS somehow, or the settings therein? Any non-obvious settings I can look at? Here's my system: Gigabyte P55-USB3 rev 2.0 (F9 bios) i7 870 B1 3.2GHz Gigabyte Nvidia GTX 465 4GB RAM, DDR3 (Kingston KVR 2x2GB) 120GB Intel SSD (partioned 80/40 for Win7/ML) 1TB HDD VIA chipset FW400 add-on card Thanks, and please let me know if there's more information I could give to make it easier for you to help. Edit: I have tried Mavericks but it comes back with an error about driver initialisation, can't even make it to the ACPI hang.
