Hi

I have come back to my hackintosh laptop HP Probook after along time

But for some reason it dont seem to be loading into macOS

I get past the clover boot image and the apple logo shows for a few seconds then the screens dims and goes off and after that nothing

Can anyone help me with any tips of how to troubleshoot this issue?

Your help will be much appreciated.

P.s. i am not 100% sure what OS it is running but i think it was macOS Yosemite - that why i have posted here.

Follow entire guide as written.
That will be reinstalling the the OS? Whereas i already have the OS installed.

I currently dont have access to a macOS to re-create the USB

Will that mean i am out of luck, until i can arrange access to macOS to create the USB

Hit the space bar once at boot select verbose. And post a pic.

In case you haven't tried the obvious...

*** Press your brightness up key ***
