Hey.

I usually use my VirtualBox to make bootable USBs for making installations for OS X. Did the same today with Yosemite, but I couldn't go past the installation.

Sometimes, it shows this when booting to the USB halfway when loading the instaler (it's random):

sometiems, it would boot into the installer & then when the installation starts it'd just freeze.

Specs:

ASUS H97M-E Motherboard
intel Core i5-4590 CPU
Intel HD Graphics 4600 (integrared)
4GB RAM

This machine did run OS X Mavericks, but I switched to windows for a week so it is capable of running it.

Edit:

when using -x the screen is weird:

Update: Using the boot flags: PCIRootUID=1 -x GraphicsEnabler=Yes npci=0x3000 I was able to boot into the installer, however, sometimes it gets stuck so I have to redo it. One time I was able to get into starting the installation process, but as soon as it starts, it says : time remaining 12 minutes and the whole thing freezes.

Solution: Used boot args:

GraphicsEnabler=Yes npci=0x3000 PCIRootUID=1 -v

and waited about a minute, then the installation process started ok.

No boot args were required post-installation as Apple now natively supports my graphics card.

Thanks!
