Computer can only boot in safe mode Yosemite 10.10.1

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have installed Yosemite Niresh on my computer but I can only boot in safe mode (see my config at the bottom).

I managed to complete the Install with the following boot flags:

  • /amd64 PCRootUID=1 npci=0X2000 GraphicsEnabler=No USBBusFix=Yes -v -x

 

I managed to sucessfully reboot a few times without any flags, however the resolution was 1024x768.

 

I installed the graphics kexts Ati Radeon HD 5750 (0x68BE1002) from the download section using kext wizard + repair permissions and cache reduild, then rebooted

  • on the system report graphics/displays shows that the graphics card is not recognized, no kexts are loaded, the monitor is not recognized either, the resolution is 1400x1050 at that stage

 

Out of desperation I installed SwitchResX, filled in the monitor info and the graphics resolution, then rebooted

  • Without any flags: stuck on grey screen prior to login with spinning beach ball on the left corner
  • With -x flag: boot all the way through and logged in successfully in full resolution  (system report shows all the correct info display and graphics)

 

Tried to tweak the boot.plist with chameleon wizard (-F, -S, PCIRoot=0, GraphicsEnabler=Yes...) one change at the time + reboot, still no luck, can't narrow down to anything in particular, I cannot boot my computer other than in safe mode.

 

I have installed Yosemite 3 times now, trying to do things in a different order but the result is always the same. SwitchResX definitely helps to get the GC and monitor recognized but I believe it is also responsible for preventing me to boot normally. Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.

Little update, I can now boot normally since I have removed AMDRadeonX3000.kext. I have full grahics resolution but no acceleration. I suppose it's better than a kick in the teeth....

    • 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
