Mavericks installer won't boot (HP Pavillion 15-e045sa Notebook PC)


HI all, brand new account here, so hopefully this is ok.


I've spent a long time troubleshooting and trying to install Mac OS X on my Laptop, HP Pavillion 15-e045sa Notebook PC, and I've overcome many hurdles. I couldn't install it to a usb, boot from usb etc. I successfully installed it into VirtualBox and it boots and runs almost flawlessly. However, upon booting the installer on my actual laptop (Niresh 10.9 DMG) it either throws up the "You need to restart your Computer" screen, or hangs on text (Screenshot attached). If anybody could help me install this I'd be extremely grateful. I must also add that the bios has almost no options that I can see. I've been through it fully at least 20 times and you can enable legacy support and disable secure boot, but nothing else.

Did You set the Sata to AHCI at The Bios? Because you are stuck at The "Still waiting for Root Device"

    • I have a GA-H81M-S mobo with G3240 Pentium (R) processor. I am not using the IGP but an Nvidia GT-710 1GB DDR3 dedicated Graphics card. I followed posts in other forums and managed to install once. After upgrade and reboot, I messed with clover configurator and now I can't get to the install screen. I get stuck on VoodooPS2Mouse: Version starting on OS X Darwin 16.4. If this forum is still alive, please help
