Installation Problem (USB not recognized)

Recommended Posts

Hey. I just signed up and am pretty new to this Hackintosh thing. I followed the guide over at macbreaker to install mavericks os x on my laptop (http://www.macbreaker.com/2014/01/install-osx-mavericks-on-pc-with-niresh.html).

I created the usb in windows using the Win32 Disk Imager and used the Niresh OSX-Mavericks.dmg torrent from (http://kickass.to/niresh-mac-os-x-mavericks-10-9-0-for-amd-and-intel-for-apple-and-non-apple-computers-t8406620.html)

 

System:

Dell Inspiron 3521

Core i3-3217u 1.8ghz

4gb Ram

Dual boot Ubuntu & Windows 8.1

 

Problem:

I cannot boot from the USB. Its not even recognized in my boot options. Could these be because i have a dual boot system set up? Im planning on triple booting all three or will that cause problems?

 

Thanks and i hope to hear help!

 

EDIT: I found the solution. I had to enable Legacy Boot in my bios and can now boot from usb. I now have a different problem. I get these images and cant do anything?

Press pacebar 3-4 times on this screen, it will be solved.

 

And for new problems, create appropriate titled thread.

To get past those keyboard and mouse images, I just kept pressing escape and random keys until I got past it!

Might work for you...

    • 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
