HI appreciate any help
was trying to finally get my hack ready for update os.
have been using usb stick to boot it for about 1 year since a blackout that i couldn't get the HD to boot by itself.
I tried to get the multicast to reinstall chime so it would boot from HD using multibeast.
This was so i could eventually move over to clover.
Upon restart it wouldn't boot from HD and now when i use the usb to boot it just shows the Apple
with a bar loading.....
I have tried changing the graphics settings but that doesn't seem to work
I can get to install and terminal via the usb if i start the usb.
NOT very good at understanding how to add a boot flag if I need to.
any help would be amazing!

At Clover selection screen use right arrow key to move to hi-lite to the options icon. Click on it or hit enter. Use arrow keys to hi-lite the boot arguments option and hit enter - this allows you to type in your flags. When done typing, hit enter again, use arrow key to hi-lite Return option, select your Mac OS boot icon and hit enter.
