Problems booting up Installer

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, just created an account here a few days ago.

It's been a while since I don't create a Hackintosh, last time I did it was with Leopard, and now I'm trying to install mavericks, but when I boot to the usb, this is the last screen I see, after this, I get a black screen, it's in verbose mode, also have tried with -x flag and no luck.

Without verbose it hangs at the grey screen with apple logo.

Not sure how I can get through this, so I hope somebody could gave me a hand.

Here are my specs:

i7 4820k

Asrock x79 Extreme4

Nvidia GTX780

Any help will be greatly appreciated :)

I have tried now some kexts I have found for my motherboard, using another pendrive, downloading again the .dmg.

Does someone now if my hardware is compatible?

For anyone interested and future users with problems, I managed to boot it, just used the dmg for my motherboard from rampagedev, copied the mach_kernel and boots.

Now when everything is loaded and I am supossed to get the language selection screen in the installer, I just get an gray screen where I can see the mouse, but it moves really slowly.

Maybe someone could help me here, as this issue should be more common.

I have the EXACT same problem. Black screen with -v or hangs on apple logo with no -v. I have tried like every version and options of boot command. I am going to try using the dmg files but I am not quite sure how to. I have intel 6 core, same motherboard, ATI R9 280 3GB, 32GB ram, samsung 500GB SSD. I need a fix!
