Unable to boot mavericks

Recommended Posts

Hello sir,

 

I am a newbie, and wanted to install, hackintosh on my laptop.

 

Hardware:

Acer aspire 5745G

Intel i5 430M 2.26GHz

Nvidia gt330m 1 gb

4gb ram

500 gb hdd

 

The problem is i am not able to boot mavericks even with -x.

 

I tried many flags -x -v but neither booted mavericks, i searched forum and found to set legacy usb support=yes, but i did not find such option in my BIOS and i also tried to search VT/D and was unable to find this option also.

 

Please sir help me out, I really want to run mac on my pc.

 

Thanks

wait buddy, dont be so desperate.

As per you picture its not a clear prob.

 

Try this -v UseKernelCache=No PCIRootUID=1 (or 0 if 1 didnt work)

Your graphics card is optimus (Automatic switching when needed) ?

 

If yes then trying following before re-installing.

 

-v -f PCIRooutUID=0 (or 1) GraphicsEnabler=No IGPEnabler=Yes (or No)

 

try all combinaions of above flags.

 

Can you disbale your graphics card in BIOS?

If no then disbaler the nVidia.

So this is causing the problem. Boot with

-x -v -f PCIRootUID=1 (or 0) IGPEnabler=Yes

 

It should boot into OSX.

 

Then goto <OSXHDD>SystemLibraryExtentions

 

And delete all Kext starting NV*.kext and GeForce.kext

 

Boot with

-v -f PCIRootUID=1/0

You may try to install again from 0 but this time goto configuration menu (after formatting HDD)

 

And in Graphics move nVidia and ATI graphic kext.

Reason could vary but right now mostlt cue to OPTIMUS GPU.

 

When you install this time, just where you select HDD (in your case M:) there is a configuration menu in left down side.

 

Go there you will see Graphics-Tree.
