Hello, first time Hackintosh here!

I've gone through the guide for installing High Sierra (As the MacBook I had access to was too old to download Mojave).

I've done everything in the guide EXCEPT for point 9 in the BIOS Setting for disabling USB 3.0. I wasn't sure how to do this in the BIOS. I did, however, use a USB 2.0 port for the USB-Drive as I read that using USB 2.0 was desirable.

I've attached the pictures from the process. I had only the USB-Drive in the computer (Pulled out keyboard as I clicked enter). Tried different ports but still got this "Denied" sign showing up.

Not sure how to proceed, this is my first time attempting a Hackintosh. Any help is appreciated.

Specs:
Motherboard: ASUS B360F - Gaming
CPU: Intel i3 8100
RAM: 8GB Hyper X
GPU: Nvidia GTX 670
SSD: WD Blue 256 GB
USB: Sandisk 32GB

First of all, boot in verbose mode so you have the relevant information to post. At the clover boot screen, make sure that the drive where you installed MacOS is selected and then press the space key. Select the verbose option and then "Return" at the bottom.

For me, this was caused by the nv_disable=1 boot option. Look at the options available after you have hit the space key, and also those under the small option at the bottom that looks like a gear. If you see a check next to nv_disable=1, uncheck it and try like that.

Hi guys!

same problem and probably same solution but i'm not sure how to do.
nv_disable=1 is at the top of the configuration panel like this:

"Boot Args:dart=0 nv_disable=1"

I tried "Boot Args:dart=0 nv_disable=0", "Boot Args:dart=1 nv_disable=1" and ""Boot Args:dart=1 nv_disable=0" without success.

I also use USB ownership and USB injection check on.

Any ideas?

I tried this but it didn't work for me. I was able to disable it though. Just select the drive and press space bar and then you can enable/disable all the variables.

Thanks I didn't know about this menu.

I uncheck the nv_disable box and boot with selected options but unfortunately it didn't work.

You should start a new thread of your own instead of hijacking this one.

Search for "still waiting for root device".

With any OS, I find it always best to boot from a USB 2 jack, even if you think that the USB 3 should work. It's just more likely to work.

Have you tried with verbose yet? It's the only way to get information as to where the process it hanging.

Is your video connected to the video card or the motherboard?
