Hello,

 

   Been lurking and decided to take the plunge into a hackintosh. My hardware Asus G74SX Bios 203 fresh install of windows 7 UEFI enabled in bios. Nvidia GTX 560M 16GB ram, 2 750GB HDD.

 

Ive been following the guide from the genius bar by pokenguyen..

 

-Ive created the thumb drive partitioned with Clover(FAT)and Untitled(MAC OS ext journeled) MBR.

 

-Utilized Vietnam tool and selected sandy bridge mobile for cpu, nvidia for GPU, and SST is custom from rehab mans ssdt.zip with the name shortened to ssdt.aml

 

-I boot into the Clover Boot ROM, select install and get the blank screen. I went back tried different configurations and get the same result. I did try the boot flag verbose and all the configs get the same result:

 

efiboot loaded from device: Acpi(PNP0A03,0)/PCI(1C|3)/PCI(0)/Usb(2, 0)/HD(Part2,Sig000000)

boot file path:

 

 

I cant type anything with a usb keyboard or my laptop keyboard. Where am I going wrong? Attached is a couple screen shots...

 

I appreciate any and all help. New to the hackintosh idea and following the guides and spent 5 hours trying to wrap my head around this.

Hello

 

What's you CPU?

 

And it seems that you're using SL or Lion as OS.... My advice is to you choose Mavericks or Yosemite as OS....

 

Other.... Your GTX 560M doens't has support in OSX... you need use integrated graphic of CPU :)

Hi Pimentel,

Thanks for the replying!

My cpu is a sandybridge i7 2670qm. I selected sandy ridge mobile in Vietnam tool. I have tried others and get the same result.

I'm not sure where the OS X is looking like SL or ML perhaps that's the issue but I know I am trying to install Mavericks and have th mavericks.app on the other partition of the usb drive.

As for the video card 560m not being supported, I had Mavericks installed using another program made by a guy tony however, it would only boot with the usb so I found this method on insanely Mac which seems much better. The video card I had to use nv_disable=1 to install Mavericks and boot but once in Mavericks I successfully installed the nvidiA driver and had no issues. Granted I didn't utilize the system much being it would only boot with usb. I may need to look further into that once I get it going.

So where do I go from here? I'm no programmer but it seems when I select install mavericks from the clover boot menu and use -v in the boot flag I get a hung command almost like it's asking where do you want me to find the installer. I'm probably way off but that's what that error in -v seems to me.
