Black Screen after chameleon with installer USB

Recommended Posts



I am trying to install Niresh on my Acer Aspire 7551-2575 (specs at bottom), however no matter what boot flags I try; after the initial screen of text the screen changes to just a black screen (the screen is on, just black). Any one have any ideas ?

I am encountering the same problem on dell inspiron 11. Zador, I think what he means is that when we boot verbose, we see chameleon's "Loading kernel cache" and the like, but after that just a black screen - the installer never boots. It is not a graphics problem as the installer never starts booting to load any drivers. I somewhat new to hackintoshing, I've made only two hackintosh laptops , but my guess would be a problem with chameleon, the kernel, or the bios. If anybody has anymore ideas or insight on the issue please come forward, it would help us a lot and I would really appreciate it.


    Happy hackintoshing guys!


 UncleAcid, have you tried using one of the amd kernels? Although I have an intel, if you try a different kernel and it works, that would let me know if that's is the problem for me as well. If you haven't tried please try and respond back when you get the chance.
