Unable to boot to installer

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! I downloaded the Niresh Mavericks DMG and installed it on a USB,  also configured the BIOS to boot in Legacy, with the USB as first option, but it doesn't start. What it shows is a black screen and after that, the computer boot to Windows.
Can you guys tell me how to start the Niresh installer please?


Thank you :D



P.S: I have a Samsung Series 7 Chronos, with an Intel Core i7-3615QM, 8GB of RAM, an Nvidia GeForce GT640 GM...

Use iBoot CD to boot first then select USB-Installer from iBoot selection menu.

I'm having the same problem.


It just boots straight to Windows 8.1 and when I use the iBoot CD I get a Kernel Panic.

The only way that I could install was by putting my HDD in someone else's laptop and booting from there, but now that i've installed it I still cant boot, it just flashes the Apple logo and restarts. I hope that someone comes up with a solution soon, as this is getting really annoying.


Please answer my thread question here:

Samsung has f*cked up Series 7 BIOS so it won't boot devices (either hard drives or USB sticks) with GUID partition table. The workaround is to download clover bootloader .iso image, burn it onto a cd or dvd, go to bios, disable UEFI boot option (otherwise it won't boot from cd either), and then boot clover from cd, put your Niresh Install USB stick in the USB 2.0 port, and then choose it in the clover menu. Oh, yes, another thing, after you set up options in bios, insert the cd with clover into the drive and then power off the machine by holding the power button, and then turn it on again. Simple reboot will get it into the boot loop again. Every time you want to boot Series 7 from either a cd or a USB stick, you have to power down the machine completely and turn it on back again.


If you have access to a working hackintosh/macintosh, you can use the disk management utility to format another usb stick (not the niresh installation one) as a mbr disk and then istall clover onto it. Choose boot legacy usb option in bios, save changes an power down the machine. Put the Clover USB stick in the USB 3.0 port, power up the machine and boot clover. Then stick your Mavericks install USB into the USB 2.0 port, choose it from the clover menu and boot into installation.


Oh yes, if you format your hard drive as GUID you won't be able to boot OS X from the hard drive, you will have to use clover cd or usb all the time. So format your hard drive as MBR and use MBR patch for you mavericks installation (Mavericks and Yosemite won't install onto a MBR hard drive natively).

    • Sierra installed without any issue, but cannot get GT620 to work. Installed Cuda and Webdriver and boots without issues, but home screen wallpaper disappears and screen becomes black. Is this card supported on Sierra?
    • I get this message no matter what I do, I've tried changing my SMBIOS to a newer model to no avail. Anyone no how to get the second install boot to work?
    • This is my first time doing Hackintosh. I've several other machines running Mac using UniBeast and Multi beast. I wanted to try Hackintosh Vanilla. So far, no luck. I followed the Guide and MacPwn Mojave Guide. 
    • 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
