Hello,
After a few months of (normal) operation, my hackintosh stopped booting up normally - I get the White screen with the Apple logo. I didn't make any hardware changes or change any settings that I can recall. I CAN, however boot in safe mode. Below is a screen shot, booting in verbose mode. I have GraphicsEnabler set to "No". Let me know if I need to provide additional info.

System info:

Motherboard: Gigabyte z77-ds3h V1.1
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K processor
GPU EVGA GeForce GT 640 -
RAM: G.SKILL 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3 RAM
Power Supply: Corsair 650w CMPSU-650HX
Optical Drive: Lite-On Super AllWrite 24X SATA DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Drive
Hard Drive: Western Digital 2TB Hard Drive
Solid-State Drive: 240GB OCZ Vertex
Bluetooth: Jabra A320s USB Bluetooth Adapter.

Any ideas?

Hi,

Did you install any software before this occurred?

PS: Chapeau on making me turn my head :P

No software, the only thing I added was a 4 port usb hub. I've tried removing it and restarting it, with no luck. Still only works in safe mode. tx

Boot with -f maybe this will help

How did you connect them?



And the post above.

Ill try -f after I post this. I just plugged it in the back as some of my ports (on the front of the case) dont work. I only plugged in an Apple usb into the hub to sync my ipad and my bluetooth dongle. Thanks!

So, you are connecting the USB hub through USB? :)

No dice on using -f. I still have the White Apple logo screen with the spinning grey wheel.

Yea, I basically have 2 USB ports on the back that work so I plugged the 4 port hub into one of them to expand as needed. Thanks for the help!
