Still waiting for root device - OS X Install issue on GA-Z87N-WIFI

Recommended Posts


Hi @all!

I just bought my first hackintosh components which I put together today.

But, first of all, the components I used:

Intel Core i3-4360
No Graphics Card
SATA Harddrive, 500 GB
8 GB of RAM.

I bought this components because of some buyers guides and forum posts pointing out that the install would be very easy.

For installation, I use an USB drive of Niresh OS X Mavericks.
I know the USB drive is working because I successfully set up a virtual machine with it.

So I built the computer, put in the USB drive and fired up the machine.

I used the -v flag to see whats happening.

I also used some other flags such as -x or -maxmem or -GraphicsEnabler (both yes and no), but I always hit the screen I attached a photo of.


Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? Since so much people wrote that the install is easy, I think the problem is sitting in front of the keyboard

I would love to hear from you.

Greetings from Germany,
