Unable to install Mavericks using USB on HP Computers

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I downloaded the mavericks dmg file and then used the instructions under distros to copy it to a 16gb usb stick.

 

when i connect the usb to my Compaq 610 laptop, it doesn't boot off it even though I have set in my boot order to boot from usb before harddisk.

I created a ubuntu live installer on usb and this boots fine on my laptop.

i checked the mavericks usb installer on a dell computer and it starts the installer successfully.

I checked the mavericks usb installer on a hp workstation and had the same issue as the compaq 610 laptop (their bios looks same).

 

I have updated the bios on the compaq 610.

Can someone help me find why the usb installer is not booting on my compaq 610?

 

thank you

I get the same problem on my HP XW6400 workstation .. I managed to get a 10.5.5 image to boot but anything newer than that refuses to boot without the help of a already installed chameleon bootloader.. and even then i run into kernel panics after install lol

Hi Crispe

 

I found that the 16GB usb I was using was too big for my HP to recognize.. damn! I used an 8GB and it saw the usb during bootup but now I am having the same issue as you, kernel panics when booting up from usb.

 

How do you install a chameleon bootloader so that it recognizes and installs off the usb?

 

Thank you

    • @svpsl08 Your images don't work and post your specs as text don't share images, Have you tried installing High Sierra?

    • 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.
