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 ?

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.

Yeah but for now, can you help me with the other problem I have that I put in my post right before you? I heard more people have it but I cannot find a forum. Please help me or at least find a forum about this. I will also keep trying.

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.
