Can't boot to install OS X 10.9 [AMD]

Recommended Posts




I have an issue and have been days trying to solve it, I am stuck trying to boot to the installer.

I have tried many bootflags, including "Kernel Cache", Graphics Enabler, and USBBusFix, to no avail.


My specs are:


Specs are sort of incomplete because of the lack of information on this G505. I checked online and in the manual, all to no avail, they were just generic specifications, no model, etc.


Lenovo g505

AMD E1 APU, 1ghz

Radeon HD 8210 graphics

Mobo: Couldn't find the model.

Wireless: Couldn't find.

Ethern: Couldn't find.


Here's a minimap of the errors:


amd -> efi error

amd (tried again with USBBusFix) -> reboot

amd64 -> hangs forever in gray screen, in verbose mode code runs all over the screen, almost impossible to read, then gets stuck for hours

amdfx-> Not my architecture I believe, tried, resulted in reboot


If you need any more information just ask and I will happily provide.
