Successful installation doesn't boot into video mode

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!


I have got a ProBook 4520s where I have successfully installed 10.9 just with installation flag -v - video mode was working fine (apart from non-native resolution).


CPU - i5-480M

GPU - Non-switchable HD 6370M

Chipset - HM57


After successful installation I have tried to boot my Hackintosh for the first time but there is an error - The system seems to be fully started up without a freeze, some voice assistant even tells me what to do... but there's no graphical mode displayed.


As I have previously installed Hackintosh distros without any major problems previously, I am a greenhorn in Hackintosh troubleshooting.


I have tried: -v, -x, GraphicsEnabler=yes - no success.


What shall I do to make my video mode work fine? I am a newbie in hackintoshing but I have solid Unix-like systems knowledge.

@Radek Bush

Are you saying your display gets turned off after showing some messages in -v and you hear voice?

in case you installed into laptop and connected to external display. try changing smbios.

i had this issue during installation in my my case this issue was resolved by reinstallation and changing smbios in customise during installation ( unchecking default mac pro to mackbookpro 8 1 as my system is laptop).

@ Radek Bush You may also have to experiment with GraphicsEnabler=yes and no after changing smbios

    • Hey guys, this is my first post on this forum.   I've installed High Sierra on my box.   These are my settings:   Intel Core i5 3570k (Intel HD 4000) MSI Z77A-G41 8GB RAM 120GB SSD + 1TB HDD   I'm using an HDMI cable with a monitor resolution 1920x1080   Everything is working fine... I've got my LAN working after installing some kexts.   But now I can't have my VGA working properly (some glitches and slowdowns).   I've tried alot of things that I've found on the internet, like changing config.plist on Clover with some different settings. But nothing worked for me... even youtube videos showing how to get it to work...   Can you guys help me please?   Thanks!

    • Hi You might use Apple Disk Utility to clone the disk. May be you must  write a disk image of your Startup disk first. Carbon CopyCloner will do it too ( EVEN IF THE DISK IS IN USE). Then you must install Clover on the Disk and copy the contents of the efi Partition of your startup dist to the Clone. Voila thats it.
