I tried that and it wouldn't stay on the screen long enough to take a picture of it to post.

I tried that as well and both my phones were to slow and like i said the report doesn't stay up long enough. it Just lists many lines and then disappears before i can do anything about it. Could I try taking a short video of it and then posting that?

I am having same issue I think. Therefor I did not want to open another thread. If I do not boot with -v or -x I get stuck on the white screen with the apple logo and nothing more. screen shots are with -v and or -x.  I have also tried every other command I can think of and I get various end points.  I have been trying your distros from 10.8.2, 10.8.5 and the Mavericks, all with same result.  I have tried following each "guide" as best I can, I have converted my bios, I just have no option for HPET anywhere.  I have run straight off DVD, off USB sticks, also with and without clover. Specs are in my signature. 
I am on Win 7 and also have Linux installed. I am on a separate HD with a partition for each OS I have.  This is my first attempt (week and a half's worth at least) at Hackintosh so if I am making a noob mistake, I am sorry.  I appreciate your help in advance.  I have been scrounging though the forums trying to find my own answer and I refuse to be beaten by a machine haha.Posted ImagePosted Image

were these screenshots from something goofy I have missed? and were they the same as what the op was running into? Figured I may be able to help the op and me at the same time.

Thanks again in advance for any info.

    • 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
