See Apple logo but doesn't go further during install

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am attempting to install 10.8.2. I tried doing it with no flags and I have tried -v and -x and always amd. I get to the Apple logo and nothing happens after that during the install.

 

My system:

 

Home built

Windows 7

AMD Athlon 64 939

Winfast MOBO with Award Phoenix BIOS (CK804) Nvidia NForce 4

GPU: XFX Radeon HD6770

4 GB RAM

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated and if I do get it running I promise a $25 donation for Niresh's huge effforts.

 

Thank you.

 

Mike

Koranny,

 

The odd thing is that I was able to get a retail version of OS X to install but it would not load. I can't get this version to even install.

What did you use to boot the Retail installation?

Koranny,

 

I do not remember what I used when I installed the retail version. I included an image of my bootloader showing OS X. I did that about a year ago before I knew about Niresh. It does not load, but it installed. I can not get Niresh's version to install. It hangs at the Apple logo or if I do -x -v at [ PCI Configuration begin ].

 

I could try to install it on my Alienware system, but I would prefer not to. That system is:

 

Alienware Desktop

Win 7 Ultimate 64 Bit

Intel i7-3820 @ 3.6 GHz

16 GB Ram

 

I would prefer to install it on my older system that I built which is AMD.

Hello didair,

 

Are you saying I should enter it in the format you gave with the / in there. I have not seen that before.

 

So I would enter: amd -x -v npci=0x3000/0x2000 PCIRootUID=0/1

 

No comma but with the /s?

 

Thanks.
