Hi guys, Im new to the hackintosh world,

Just attempted my first installation but as the title of this post states I can't reach the installer

I have tried the flags; GraphicsEnabler=No, -v , -x, npci=0x3000, PCIRootUID=0, maxmem=4096, nv_disable=1
and
-no-zp

Nothing has worked sofar

Am I overlooking something?

Did you use UniBeast to make the USB Installation Thumb Drive? From where did you download Mavericks?

Hi Stork,
I downloaded the Mavericks installer from the apple appstore, and built the USB installation drive with Unibeast 5

Is there any reason why you're using Mavericks instead of Sierra? I'm trying to recall if Mavericks will work on the current motherboards/processors.

Yeah indeed there is a reason, most of the Audio software I use does not support Sierra yet
