Thanks I'm finally getting some help here: http://www.insanelym...cs-qeci/page-75


I am now stuck at the prohibited symbol. I may try this install method if I continue not to get anywhere.

Ah I see. Yeah for 10.11 you're getting the prohibited symbol. You aren't authorized to install OS X. Nah just kidding haha. Anyways that just means that your USBs aren't working. Therefore when OS X takes over the USB ports, the external drive is no longer detected, which causes OS X to go into an unknown state. You're gonna have to read on how to enable those ports in El Capitan. Though I believe one easier way is to use a different SMBIOS. Don't remember which one.

Ahh ok. The 10.11 install does seem to work a little better than 10.10. Even with busratio=17 and cpus=1 I get to the install but it restarts at some point anyway. So El capitan maybe a better bet or at least clover is.


Going to try some of this:

"Prohibited" sign on boot

  • Try booting verbose. If it's complaining about OsxAptioDrvFix and relocation block, make sure you're booting from a drive with the latest version of Clover (3270+). This was a common problem with older versions of Clover.
  • If OsxAptioDrvFix doesn't work, try OsxAptioDrv2Fix (but not both at once).
  • For a 2500K, 2600K, or other Core i5 and Core i7 'K' Sandy Bridge CPUs you may need to boot with cpus=1 until you can either install the correct SSDT.aml or finish the install and put NullCPUPowerManagement.kext into /Library/Extensions/
  • If you get all garbled text and/or the message "Still waiting for root device" with the prohibited sign:
    • Try the install USB in every single USB port on your case, motherboard, add-on PCI card, USB hub, etc. and see if it gets farther on any of those
    • If you're using a USB3 stick, use a USB2 stick and try all USB ports again
    • Try booting with cpus=1.
  • If you have USB hub or a port replicator, try putting the install USB in there
  • Double-check SMBios selection: MacPro3,1 may be the most reliable in general


After trying the above I get the prohibited symbol after a bluetooth controller transport is missing problem. I tried different USB ports, I tried cpus=1, I tried MacPro3,1 typed it in in clover. I also made sure the usb ownership and usb injection were both on. Still I got the prohibited sign with scrambled text. Any ideas?

Well if you use Clover, the bus ratio isn't necessary. It automatically detects the CPU. I faced this reboot problem in the Snow Leopard days when using Chameleon.

Interesting that you say that. I have a build of 10.10 with chameleon that booted with the busratio=17. I have a clover 10.11 build that will not boot even with that flag. Since clover has the CPU detection it does not work for my system. The 10.11 build still will not boot and I got a large strike through circle when it panics. Any ideas?


It seems it maybe the combo of busratio=17 and cpus=1 that works. I did not think it was cpus=1 made a difference cuz I have used that before without success. Still with both of these flags clover will not boot the 10.11 install. I guess I'm going to try to see how far I get with chameleon and 10.10.

As explained in the guide, you must do more work (well not really) to get it to work in Clover. Unfortunately, you thought that just by installing Clover it was automatically gonna work. I wish this was the case. You must configure Clover to work with your system. As for graphics, you disable Inject Intel and enable patch vBios. This was explained in the guide if you used Clover from the start.



I don't think this problem relates to Intel HD Graphics. Must be other hardware related.

GhostRaider thanks for your response. What else could it be? Is there anyway to diagnose it? Like I said I cant seem to see any pattern in the panics. I have tried a lot of different flags but none seem to make a difference. I cant even get in on single user mode which is quite bad. There is another user here with almost the same setup but its an HP computer. See: http://www.insanelym...s-boot-problem/


He was able to osx to finally boot but his tutorial is not detailed enough for me to get anything useful from it. Is there anything you think I can try? I'm open to suggestions.


I got in.. Busratio=17 is a must.. Any idea why?

Yes same issue because you can not change any file before reach the desktop 

Well I could delete the AppleIntelHDGraphicsfb kext's and rebuild the kext cache but it will likely end up the same as before. If I can give you an idea of where it crashes could you help me diagnose the true problem? My system is really similar to this one: http://www.insanelym...s-boot-problem/


He somehow got Mavericks to work but I still got no where because his install method was not detailed enough to show everything he did to get it to work. There is something I am missing that will make this work but I am not sure what it is. I dont want to just give up, because I get really close to it working and than it just panics.
