Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I'm trying to install yosemite zone 10.10.1 into a server not more used.


It have that hw:


supermicro PDSM+

Xeon 3210 quad core cpu

http://ark.intel.com/products/28033/Intel-Xeon-Processor-X3210-8M-Cache-2_13-GHz-1066-MHz-FSB )


6 GB of ddr2 667mhz RAM

( 2 * 2GB + 2 * 1GB )


An integrated ATI ES1000 video card , if I will need I will install a better gpu later , mb have a x8 slot so I can put in a GT730.

I've tryed a lot of combination of all flags possible: 

npci=0x2000 , npci = 0x3000 , cpus=1 , PCIRootUID=1 , -x , -f 


But in every case it Hangs without opening graphical install , when hangs nothink works , also caps lock on keyboard don't power on/off the led.


From the bios I've set ahci and enable nx like some guide says.


Here is a screenshot of the problem:





Does anyone have an idea to solve the problem ?


Thank's in advance,

Try and use the 10.10 distro and see if the same problem applies, also have you tried taking the GPU out just to see it'll boot without?

Hi , I will try with 10.10.0 , ATI ES1000 is integrated on mb so I can't disable it until I put another video card that for now I don't have.
