Can't boot without USB & GE=No flag

Question

Hello,

 

I'm a noob to this hackintosh scene, but I can't boot OSX Maverick without using the flash drive with the Niresh stuff & it freezes on the apple logo (without spinning wheel) if I don't use the flag GraphicsEnabler=No . I need to do this everytime I want to get into the OS .

Also, the resolution should be 1920x1080 and it only goes up to 1280x720 and sound-wise, it makes a grainy noise that won't go away!

Any workarounds/fixes for this (at least for having to use the flash drive to boot the OS everytime...)?

 

Thanks

 

EDIT:

 

My Rig:

Asus Z87-Plus

i5-4670K

GTX 760

500GB HDD (Where the OSX is installed)

 

UPDATE: 3h after, I managed to fix all problems but the resolution one. I just can't get my head around the problem really.

Any suggestions?

I think all of your problems can be solved :-

 

1. For GE=No, open your  <OSX HDD>/Extra/org.Chameleon.Boot.plist, and insert these lines anywhere but between <dict>..</dict>

 

        <key>GraphicsEnabler</key>

        <string>No</string>

 

2. For Resolution try this boot flag :

        

         Graphic Mode=1920x1080x32

 

3. For graining prob in sound, I assume you have VooDooHDA Pref Pane in System Preferences, then open VooDoo Pref Pane, and slide iGain to 0

 

4. To boot without USB-Installer, install any boot loader e.g CHameleon or Chimera using Slytherin or Multibeast.

 

Happy Hackintosh!

    • Hello everyone  I have installed High Sierra and updated to 10.13.6 before installing nVidea web drivers. After everything was installed (Kexts and the driver) everything booted fine. Graphics worked perfectly. My onboard USB did not work but I have some generic NEC USB 2.0 card that works fine. After a reboot later in the day, I had a weird kernel panic. It spit out strings no longer than 30 charters and then proceeded to reboot. I have not seen this type of panic . This happened when using the onboard USB 3.0 controller but was fixed by removing the device. But now I'm not sure what caused this. I have reinstalled about 15 times already. Here are my specs: ASUS B150 Plus D3 Intel Pentium G4400 ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1050 2GB WD Blue 500GB HDD 8GB Ram Some generic wireless card (That works) Thanks -T
