Cannot install Yosemite, reboots automaticly.

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I cannot install Yosemite since I use "-v" and it reboots automaticly at the "Read HFS+" series of commands.(the ones that go really fast at start)

Dell XPS 8700

NVIDIA GTX 745 4GB Dedicated VRAM

12 GB Memory (2x4 and 2x2 for 4 slots)

Intel Core i7 4790 "Haswell" 3.6GHz

1TB hard drive for Windows 8.1 and SSD for booting it up

External USB 3.0 hard disk of 120GB for Hackintosh

I think the problem is, because you're using external HDD for installing Yosemite. Don't use external HDD for installing OS X

Problem is that my HDD is IDE so my computer doesn't have IDE port... That is why I got an enclosure to transform the IDE to USB. Could it be that USB 3.0 doesn't work on Yosemite Zone ?

yes you could. choose GUID Partition Table. don't use MBR Partition Table.

I do not understand the "Yes you could". I did not ask if it could work or not, I asked if USB 3.0 could be the problem. Maybe you mispelled it. And when do I choose GUID from MBR ?

sorry my mistake.

 

yes, you can use external HDD but I'm not sure it could be work with IDE HDD. As long as I know OS X only use SATA HDD or with SATA to USB converter (External SATA HDD).

Well, installing Mavericks went fine with my IDE USB, I just had to boot the install with the "haswell" kernel and using "GraphicsEnabler=No". I tried them on Yosemite and it didn't work. The only other problem that I had in Mavericks was that I had to boot "-s" and delete the graphics kexts to enable VESA and then "-x" to boot first time to do it properly. Then it worked good until I did the 10.9.0 to 10.9.5 update.

And I read the link and I do not see where it says that is is supported only SATA HDD.

Maybe try Apple partition scheme (PowerPC) since IDE's are from that time?

Well back to square one sadly. It keeps rebooting even with all the kernels used. Sadly I don't remember the combination that helped me get passed the reboot. Expect a video soon about the reboot thing while it happens.

i failed to install yosemite on my External IDE HDD,  :crying:

it stuck in grey screen with hackintosh zone logo, i tried it 3 times, but it always stuck there

so i give up.

now i'm using dual boot (mavericks and yosemite) and it works smoothly  :rofl:

I made 3 partition, 1st partittion for Mavericks and 2nd one for Yosemite the last partition for backup data.

I use chameleon bootloader with Chamelon Wizard for both of them with same setting.

sorry i'm not good for answering kernel panic issue..

If I got that issue, then i reboot the pc. I always use to boot with usb-hdd (usb bootloader) before the OS X can boot normaly from HDD

I think the problem are:

  - BIOS setting (UEFI or EFI BIOS) you must google them to set up for different BIOS configuration of yours

  - Bootloader costume for your system, I always uncheck GraphicsEnabler=No (coz my graphics card is ATI)  then check Chameleon EFI not Chameleon Standard at Customize screen.

  - I've got no clue for installing Yosemite on External IDE HDD. Sorry can't help...

 

According to your photo, I thinks you mus try to customize bootloader using Multibeast or Clover Configuration tool.

That's weird I think it has something todo with the processor because I have that same one and it keeps rebooting before I even get to -v at Read HFS+

Hi there. use "/haswell -v"

this will locate the 64bit haswell kernel and bootup the installation. But if the problem still araises, try "/haswell -v -x" without quotes. This will prevent from a kernel panic. hope this helps.

Cheers! ;)

Every time I tried to boot it, it was with /haswell. Also we need to write "haswell", not "/haswell"

    • Sierra installed without any issue, but cannot get GT620 to work. Installed Cuda and Webdriver and boots without issues, but home screen wallpaper disappears and screen becomes black. Is this card supported on Sierra?
    • I get this message no matter what I do, I've tried changing my SMBIOS to a newer model to no avail. Anyone no how to get the second install boot to work?
    • This is my first time doing Hackintosh. I've several other machines running Mac using UniBeast and Multi beast. I wanted to try Hackintosh Vanilla. So far, no luck. I followed the Guide and MacPwn Mojave Guide. 
    • Hello! I wanted to install MacOS High Sierra, but the SSD does not appear in Disk Manager. I have a Samsung Pro 840 250GB. Is there a Driver for Intel Gigabit 82579LM Network LAN for MacOS High Sierra?
    • This is my very first post and have looked around the forums to my question but I wasn't able to find the exact specifics that I need. This is my very first windows/mac dual boot project. I chose to attempt high sierra and I hope I am posting in the correct area. High Sierra seemed to be the newest that is possibly more stable than Mojave so I chose that. I'm reaching out to the more advanced builders and experienced people. I'm currently running Win 10 as of now and bought a separate SSD to install a macOS on. Before I invest time and energy into this. I'm wanting to get the best recommendations on what OS I should choose , if my hardware will be up for the task and my best plan of attack. I'll be honest I'm not ready to bang my head on the keyboard for hours. I've been there and done that.  My hardware was some of the best at its time in 2011 and I'm not 100% confident it will work with a more up to date macOS I'm also concerned about drivers for my GPU.  All input is welcomed   Here are my current specs:   CPU
