Maybe you can help me out.. i got it to boot one time only and now it hangs with the APPLE sign and spinning wheel..
8 Gig Corsair DDR3 1600 (2 x 4G)
Samsung 840 SSD.
I see in verbose mode a few things that don't look good, and i could only boot one time with safe mode '-x' and could log in, downloaded MultiBeast, ran it, but now cannot get back to it.
messages i don't like "this is an unknown CPU model 0x3a" -> how can that be ??
this is followed by "journal replay done" then "sound assertions" then "macx_swapon success " then it just hangs
with Google I found several other threads with the same problem -- maybe one of their solutions can work for you
He got it working by using the boot flag option "GraphicsEnabler=No" (type it in the without the quotes, the way you do for -x etc.) if it works, add this option to the /extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist
Otherwise make sure you have sata mode as AHCI, put your monitor on DVI or DisplayPort (not vga), plug in only the boot drive in sata port 0.
The unknown CPU is ok -- that's because there aren't any real Macs with the same cpu. I have that, too.
The journal replay would be an indication of some disk corruption, so maybe worth reformatting the drive and doing a clean install. Then don't use any of the sound options in Multibeast, only the basic minimum needed for ethernet and boot loader ...
