Can't boot from flash drive on GA-P35-DS3R

Recommended Posts

I wanted to turn my pc into a dual boot OSX and windows 7. After downloading the image file I followed this guide: http://www.macbreaker.com/2014/01/install-osx-mavericks-on-pc-with-niresh.html
PC specs:
Motherboard: GA-P35-DS3R
Ram: 6GB (2x 1GB Corsair 2x 2GB ADATA, not sure about the models)
CPU: Core2Duo E8400 3GHz
HDD: WD Blue
GPU: Nvidia GTS 450
I created the bootable drive with win32diskimager and when trying to boot from USB-HDD I get the following screen:
My BIOS was set up using the guide. I first thought that the drive wasn't bootable, so I tried to create it with usbit and then with transmac, same screen as before.
The drive in transmac looks like this:
I hope you can help me figure out why I did wrong guys, most of the parts in my build were reported as working with hackintosh

@Zsolt Székely

Are you sure your are using a .dmg file instead of an .ISO file ?

Burning an ISO file to the USB will render it unbootable

@Zsolt Székely 

1) Format your USB drive in FAT32 format in windows 

2)Open up transmac :

Right Click your drive and select > Restore with Disk Image 

Point to your Niresh Mavericks .dmg file 

And let it write the image to the USB 


3) Try Booting with the USB drive now

I figured it out that my motherboard lists usb drive in hdd even though it has USB booting. I'm gonna try this once again. Thanks!

EDIT: I followed the instructions, but same screen is displayed :(

EDIT2: I managed to burn mountain lion to a DVD and it successfully booted, then on restart it froze on apple logo screen with an exclamation icon over it and the spinner stopped too. I restarted the PC and it froze again so I restarted again. Now I'm in a desperate situation since on the 2nd restart my monitor didn't show anything, PC started like normal, no beep, all fans running but nothing displayed. So I'm at a point where I don't know what to do. I tried unplugging the cable and letting it sit for 5 minutes just in case it would have been on sleep, but nop. It's weird that such thing could happen.

    • 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
          8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 668MHz (9-9-9-24)
          ASUSTeK Computer INC. CG8350 (LGA1155)    26 °C
