Been trying to install a bootloader. No luck.

Recommended Posts

IMG_20180929_141223.jpgI've been trying to install a bootloader for my Hackintosh. I tried a lot of tutorials, but I can't boot from the HDD. I need a USB with the system DMG to boot.

When I try to start the system without the USB, I get this message.

@ANiCRe Have you tried to Install Clover or Chameleon bootloader.

I've tried Clover, nothing. Chameleon, same thing.

@ANiCRe What is your Motherboard model?

List full hardware specs

Full computer specs or just the motherboard? And how do I see the model? Is there something like a Speccy alt for macOS?

@ANiCRe I need full hardware details, Motherboard model usually hard-printed on the Motherboard. 

 

or use Google: How to find motherboard model

CPU: Intel Core i7 (2nd Gen) (3.40 GHz)

GPU: nVidia Geforce GT 740 (VRAM: 2 GB)

RAM: 12 GB

That's everything I can confirm now. I don't know how to get the motherboard model without taking the computer apart. I heard that's dangerous.

I found something. "UEFI Boot". It was disabled, so I enabled it. Now it boots without USB. Still, I get a very basic, text-based, boot menu. To properly boot my Hackintosh, I have to type "GraphicsEnabler=No", and select the HDD. How do I get a graphic boot loader, with settings and such?

Clover loads. But when I try to modify the boot arguments, the bootloader freezes.

@Niresh @Niresh So, I could get the Hackintosh going. Everything was right. Clover doesn't crashes. It just pauses everything, so I thought it crashed.

I tried reinstalling the system because Vanilla Mojave didn't work properly with my computer (Hackintosh Mojave distro when!?). I updated Clover. But now I get this error when I select the main macOS partition.15407542470876583328838676006414.jpg
