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.

Skipper,

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.

    • 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
          Intel Core i7 2600 @ 3.40GHz    28 °C
          Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology
