I'm at a loss. Struggling to get the USB stick to load the OSX installer for Yosemite 10.10.10.
I havent built a Hackintosh in awhile but I had enough spare PC parts from work to mash this thing together. This is my 3rd Hackintosh and the first time I've been unable to get to the installer.
MSI H81M-E34 board
Single Stick 4GB DDR3 RAM
Followed the guide yet during the Verbose setup I hit a "hmm.. mismatch sizes 3100 vs 20"
The system hangs for a bit then goes to the black screen with white Apple logo with loading bar. I can see and move my cursor and then a beach ball of death happens and the system hangs there not doing anything.
The only deviation I have is that the Clover 2.3K Special Edition Installer is no longer on the site. I ended up using Clover 2.3k r3270 I had from setting up a different Hackintosh. When that failed I used the latest Clover 2.4k r4049. Both give the same issue of hanging at an Apple logo with a loading bar unfilled and beach ball of death. I've also tried getting the installer to launch with both HDD and DVD drives unplugged to no avail.
Followed the guide right up to the install point, right after where the guide notes the deprecated information. I attempt to carry out the install and that's where I'm stuck now.
-16gb USB 2.0 stick formatted HFS+ with GUID partition
-Make bootable Yosemite 10.10.10 media on USB
-Install Clover; UEFI and ESP selected only
-Run Clover Configurator, mount EFI, set ACPI, set Boot, set GUI, set Graphics, set Kernel and Kexts, set RT Variables, set SMBIOS, set System Params, set Drivers according to guide
-Save config.plist to EFI
-Eject USB safely
-Put USB stick into USB 2.0 port
-Set mobo to IGD
-Hit F11 and boot UEFI: USB STICK
-kext-dev-mode=1 rootless=0 nv_disable=1 -v (I also tried with -f, dart=0, ncpi=0x2000)
-System hangs at "hmm.. mismatch sizes 3100 vs 20"
Any clues as to where I might have gone wrong?
