Hi, 

I'm new to this whole hackintosh thing, and i'm getting some problems when booting from my USB (I'm trying to install Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.1). I already formatted my USB using transmac, and I restored the disk image with the "Yosemite-Zone.dmg" file. Also, I made sure to change my bios settings correctly. My problem is, when I boot from my USB and select "Yosemite Zone", it brings me to a screen with the hackintosh logo and stays there, and I can never continue to the next step to install hackintosh.

 

Here is what the screen looks like: (this is not my picture. I got this picture from the internet, but my screen looks exactly the same)IMG_20160117_170035.jpg

 

Specs of my PC:

  •  Intel core i5 7500 (cpu)
  •  16gb of ram (ram)
  •  GeForce GTX 1060 3GB (gpu)
  • Gigabyte H110M-a (motherboard)

 

Can someone please help me with this problem

Thanks in advanced :)

@X-troyer You are booting Yosemite Zone in Graphics Mode, You have to boot it in verbose mode to see what is the issue

to boot in verbose mode, you have to type -v and press enter in Chameleon boot menu ( In Volume Selection Menu )

Then post a picture

at what point do i take the picture? There is a lot of text displayed, so i'm not sure when I take the picture (or should I just take a video of the whole thing?)

 

Also, I tried booting in verbose mode before, and i got a grey screen and it stayed on that screen

Check your BIOS Settings, Enable Executive disable bit in BIOS

You have a latest processor (2017 released) you should try Sierra or High Sierra if possible

 

Sometimes this guide may work

I already tried sierra and it gave me errors when installing the operating system. I will try to change my bios settings.

@X-troyer BIOS are different for each Motherboard models so you have to find and configure them yourself.

I don't think I have the setting in my bios, so do you know what I should do?

@X-troyer You have a Gigabyte BIOS & Many people have succeeded with your BIOS if you are too lazy to find those settings from BIOS, sorry we cant help

 

BIOS Settings
(DEL to enter using USB keyboard)

  • Load optimized defaults first, then:
  • Set EFI Boot = On (default to EFI boot)
  • Set Secure Boot = Off
  • Set Fast Boot = Off
  • Set Virtualization VT-d = Disabled
  • Set ErP = Enabled - this is necessary to allow shutdown to work properly, i.e. not reboot seconds after shutdown. ErP Support determines whether to let the system consume less than 1W of power in S5 (shutdown) state. When the setting is enabled, the following four functions will become unavailable: PME Event Wake Up, Power On By Mouse, Power On By Keyboard, and Wake On LAN.
  • Set OS Type to “Other”
  • Set XHCI Handoff to Enabled
  • Memory - I used the “Performance” setting for RAM in the BIOS. I have a 2400 module for a motherboard that only supports 2133 RAM frequency, this is not an issue. I went with an 8GB module instead of 2x4 GB so I can upgrade to 16GB later. See notes in Clover config.plist below to allow the OS to properly see the 8GB RAM. If you do some research on Single vs Dual Channel, Dual Channel doesn’t give double the performance in case you are wondering, the performance increase is is actually negligible.
  • Make sure the I/O controller (i.e. Super I/O) is disabled in the BIOS.

I wasn't being lazy, I looked through my whole bios and I couldn't find all the setting you are telling me to change, but I still found some of them.

Once I change the settings, what should I do?

I booted from the USB, selected "Yosemite zone", but this brings me back to the original problem. It is freezing on the hackintosh logo. Is there any way to solve this.

    • Hello! I wanted to install MacOS High Sierra, but the SSD does not appear in Disk Manager. I have a Samsung Pro 840 250GB. Is there a Driver for Intel Gigabit 82579LM Network LAN for MacOS High Sierra?
    • This is my very first post and have looked around the forums to my question but I wasn't able to find the exact specifics that I need. This is my very first windows/mac dual boot project. I chose to attempt high sierra and I hope I am posting in the correct area. High Sierra seemed to be the newest that is possibly more stable than Mojave so I chose that. I'm reaching out to the more advanced builders and experienced people. I'm currently running Win 10 as of now and bought a separate SSD to install a macOS on. Before I invest time and energy into this. I'm wanting to get the best recommendations on what OS I should choose , if my hardware will be up for the task and my best plan of attack. I'll be honest I'm not ready to bang my head on the keyboard for hours. I've been there and done that.  My hardware was some of the best at its time in 2011 and I'm not 100% confident it will work with a more up to date macOS I'm also concerned about drivers for my GPU.  All input is welcomed   Here are my current specs:   CPU
          Intel Core i7 2600 @ 3.40GHz    28 °C
          Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology
      RAM
          8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 668MHz (9-9-9-24)
      Motherboard
          ASUSTeK Computer INC. CG8350 (LGA1155)    26 °C
      Graphics
          NS-24E730A12 (1842x1036@60Hz)
          1023MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti (NVIDIA)    31 °C
