You have to disable VT-d not VT-x/Tech

Try booting with "dart=0 nv_disable=1 -f -x -v"

hi
thank you for ur replay , it helped me and i installed the OS

but now i have 3 problems
1- the system is so laggy , though i installed nvidia web driver
2- no sound though i installed ALC 1150
3- i have win 7 on the 2tb hdd , but i can't see it when chimera screen comes , all i see is OS X only .

i tried to boot without writing any commands , but the screen says no signal
i used -x and -v and ( nada_drv=1 -f ) and i get "no signal"

it only works if i used "dart=0 nv_disable=1 -f -x -v"
and for some reason i ant use usb flashes .

NOTE : i installed 10.10.4

Once you install the Operating System, Yosemite on your Hard disk using your Unibeast Yosemite USB Installer and the system reboots automatically, you still need your Unibeast Yosemite USB Installer to enter the Chimera Boot screen. This is because your System Hard disk has no Bootloader but the Unibeast Yosemite USB disk has Chimera Bootloader and hence BIOS can see it as bootable and will let it reach the Chimera Boot screen.

Once you reach the Chimera Boot screen you can switch to Yosemite Hard Disk , which has limited drivers like the Unibeast Installer but still needs the SAME BOOT FLAGS Unibeast Yosemite USB Installer required to reach its destination, i.e. the Installer screen. For the Yosemite System HDD the destination is Log-in screen >Desktop. For that trip it needs the same Boot flags the installer used.

Once you are on Desktop, you need to find out what kexts/drivers the system already has that function OK like major ones - Audio, Ethernet, Graphics/Displays , USB and how to install what is lacking

Like the Device Manger of Windows , System report.. can give you that information

Apple>About This Mac>System Report..>Hardware:

  • Audio .......> Audio kext & Audio devices like Mic /Speaker
  • Ethernet Cards.......> BSD name like en0, en1
  • Graphics/Displays...>kexts and Display Monitor name > Resolution
  • USB...> Driver
What ever Onboard device drivers you don't have, find the Chipset for them from Motherboard documentation or Windows Device Manager/Linux sources or running a tool like DPCI Manager: http://sourceforge.net/projects/dpcimanager/ and search for drivers and seek Forum help.

Similarly for any Add-on cards , you have to find the drivers [Example Nvidia Video card>Webdriver] as Multibeast cannot provide them.

Multibeast will also help you with Chimera Bootloader for your System HDD so that it can boot to the Chimera screen without the help of the USB Installer.

Once you install all drivers , you need to edit the /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist and add ALL the flags that helped the system HDD to boot to the log- in screen EXCEPT -x and -v , the latter if you don't like Text-based screen and prefer the Apple logo screen.

but now i have 3 problems
1- the system is so laggy , though i installed nvidia web driver
2- no sound though i installed ALC 1150
3- i have win 7 on the 2tb hdd , but i can't see it when chimera screen comes , all i see is OS X only
1- the system is so laggy , though i installed nvidia web driver
Although you have installed the web driver , you need to insert the flag nvda_drv=1 under Kernel Flags like

<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>kext-dev-mode=1 nvda_drv=1</string>


To prevent the video "lag" you have noted from lack of QE/CI the above flag is needed. The installed web drivers are not being used for want of this argument and during boot your flag nv_disable=1 orders bootloader to ignore video acceleration.
.

NOTE:
  • There must be a single space between the arguments [flags]
  • Arguments are Case-sensitive.
  • Missing any characters or wrong ones can cause boot problems.
  • Check the existing entries to see you are following the EXACT FORMAT.

2- no sound though i installed ALC 1150

3- i have win 7 on the 2tb hdd , but i can't see it when chimera screen comes , all i see is OS X only
In /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist add the following:

<key>Instant Menu</key>
<string>Yes</string>

After installing web driver try booting with "dart=0 nvda_drv=1 -f -v"

As you have Desktop install Layout ID:1 kext from multibeast along with ALC1150.

Is the windows was installed in Legacy mode or UEFI??

Are you able to direclty boot into windows from BBS/BIOS ??
