Hackintosh Only Boots in Safe Mode

Recommended Posts

I am new to the hackintosh scene. I used Niresh and installed 10.10.1 to a secondary hard drive. I used the bootflags "/haswell -v ncpi=0x2000" to load the installer. I then copied over the haswell kernel, but the bootflags don't boot the system, I need to use "GraphicsEnabler=No -x -v ncpi=0x2000 nv_disable=1" to boot off the hard drive.

 

The problem with safe mode is it is really slow for me, to the point of being unusable.

 

My specs are:

Intel i5 4670k

MSI MPower Z87

AMD R9 280X

8GB Ram

250GB HDD

When I use GraphicsEnabler=Yes, I get a lot of"xxxx:family specific matching fails" where xxxx is about 10 different codes.

Any suggestions on what to try? I am using an intel wifi card which obviously doesnt work, so any files I need to download are done so through windows and transfered over an usb.

Thank you in advance.
