OS X 10.8.5 Halting On Boot

Recommended Posts

Hello,
 
I am trying to install 10.8.5 on my PC. However, I am having issues getting it to boot it is just stopped at FakeSMC and also giving a bunch of "could not find" errors. I am using bootable USB dmg as installation method via Clover.
 
 
My hardware;
AMD FX-8150
M5A99X Evo motherboard
16GB RAM
Radeon HD 6950
SSD is an Intel 520 Series 120gb

Booting with flags: kernel=amdfx USBBusFix=Yes -v

Could somebody help me out with this? I am trying to get to use the Disk Utility so I can install Mavericks on a partition. However, having issues installing Mavericks too (see: https://www.hackintoshzone.com/topic/887-ssd-is-not-being-recognized/ ) so I thought I'd try to boot 10.8.5 to see if it'll recognize my SSD, however it seems it doesn't want to even boot. :(

Even if you partition the solid state drive with a third party application/software it does not get reconize ?

No, just on OS X it's failing to recognize.

I came across the same problem.

My solution was to change the SSD SATA cable to a higher speed SATA port on my motherboard. (3GBs works)

The drive was then recognized.

 

Hope this helps
