Need help with Booting on an AMD FX Processor

Recommended Posts

Hello, im trying to boot with the parameters amdfx -v and I get a "System uptime in nanoseconds: 0:" error. I have googled and tried to find and answer, and I can't seem to find one. So im asking for help. These are the specs of my PC that I am currently running Oracle VM VirtualBox on:


And this is a picture of the VM window when I get the error: http://gyazo.com/fef40adf942e48b86100dd32c7519c04


Help would be much appreciated, thank you for your time.

I have an AMD FX-4300, and booted installer with: amdfx PciRootUID=0 npci=0x3000

Once install completed and rebooted, I booted to Safe Boot with -x -v switches as normal mode would just crash as soon as OS X loaded. Let the install complete, reboot to normal mode, and it worked fine.

Are you trying to install OSX on a virtual machine?


Why not download a ready image?


Anyways, try downloading the extension pack : https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloadsand choose the correct version of OSX you want to install. Make sure you choose 64-bit architecture. Also, open your virtual machine settings and tick the enable EFI box. Give this a good read : http://www.macbreaker.com/2014/05/os-x-mavericks-in-virtualbox-with-niresh.html


It should work, but it isn't worth it, because VMs can't allocate more than 100 mb of VRAM and your graphics will be REALLY bad. Just make a small partition and install it there mate...
