I've been trying to build my Hackintosh for a couple of days now and im having a couple of issues. I followed the directions on Beelzebozo's 9 series build guide to the letter and up to this point been able ot get snow leopard up, which allowed me to make a Yosemite USB boot drive via Unibeast.
I have hit a wall though, at the point of trying to install Yosemite from this drive and while viewing the install with the verbose (-v) command I can see it stall at a couple of places depending on what i change. I'll list my specs and what I have tried to far, I was really hoping someone better equipped could help me along the way!
This is the point at which the install hangs and goes no further:
Thanks a lot in advance
Mobo: Gigabyte 297x ud3h
CPU: i5 4690k
RAM: Crucial ballistix 16g
HD: samsung evo 250g SSD
While following the main guide on this forum I was able to set the following BIOS settings:
- Optimized defaults: Set
- VT-d: disabled
- CFG-lock: Couldn't locate it in the BIOS
- Secure boot mode: Couldn't locate it in the BIOS
- OS: Set to other OS
The Unibeast setting i used were the ones suggested on the main guide on this site.
I made sure to use USB 2.0 throughout.
At this point I started doing research and have tried the following boot commands:
-x -v maxmem=4906 maxmem=8192 GraphicsEnabler=no PCIrootUID=1
None of this worked. I made sure that the BIOS is set to use IGFX and not rely on a GPU (There is not one installed yet!)
Another thread suggested i attempt to remove the bluetooth kexts, which i tried to no avail.
These are the types of message i get during the verbose install:
Sorry for the potato quality pictures...
Any direction would be appreciated folks. This is starting to give me a headache now..
I'll answer any questions as best as I can, thanks a lot!
