Hackintosh-to-be stuck on reboot before install

Recommended Posts

Hi there,
So this is my config :

Gigabyte Z87N Wifi (Realtek ALC892 Audio, Intel&Atheros LAN)
i5 4590 (4x3.3 Ghz, 6Mo L3)
8Gb (2x4) Kingston HyperX Fury 1600Mhz CAS 10
Samsung 840Evo 120 Gb + Seagate Barracuda 1To
Corsair CX450M
BitFenix Prodigy

I bought everything from the book as you can see, and shouldn't have had any issues.
I've been trying for a month to Hackintosh it and it stubbornly disagrees. Bios is configured correctly (I tried almost everything - except the hammer on the mb), I tried to boot with -v (of course), -f, -x, maxmem=4096, PCIRootUID=0&1, GraphicsEnabler=Yes&No and each other one I came across, on their own and in combination, even tried to remove 1 ram stick, the built-in wifi card (heard that it could cause some trouble), with another HDD, nothing works.
I manage to get to the bootloader screen, and when I press enter to boot it begins loading HFS+ files, 6-10 screens of them, then just reboots before actually getting to the installer.

I tried with almost all distros and vanillas (Niresh's, IAtkos, vanilla w/MacPwn & UniBeast, and some others I don't remember), on Yosemite, Mav, ML but nothing, nothing, nothing...

I must say it is quite a pain in the arse, since I built this PC for a friend of mine who needed a mac and now ends up with a crappy Win7 with -of course- no Logic Pro in it.

Any help or advice will be much, much, MUCH appreciated :huh:

Cheers :)

I'm about to set up a similar build using hackintosh-zone (yosemite edition).  I will let you know how it goes.  Have you made any progress?

    • Has anyone managed to run the atheros 9485 run on Mojave? I even managed to make him recognize, but he can not find any network.
    • Hello everyone  I have installed High Sierra and updated to 10.13.6 before installing nVidea web drivers. After everything was installed (Kexts and the driver) everything booted fine. Graphics worked perfectly. My onboard USB did not work but I have some generic NEC USB 2.0 card that works fine. After a reboot later in the day, I had a weird kernel panic. It spit out strings no longer than 30 charters and then proceeded to reboot. I have not seen this type of panic . This happened when using the onboard USB 3.0 controller but was fixed by removing the device. But now I'm not sure what caused this. I have reinstalled about 15 times already. Here are my specs: ASUS B150 Plus D3 Intel Pentium G4400 ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1050 2GB WD Blue 500GB HDD 8GB Ram Some generic wireless card (That works) Thanks -T
