  1. Issues with boot up on Hackintosh

    Hey guys, This is my first Hackintosh build and everything went together fine during the build, but the software installation has been the tricky part. Here are my specs: Intel i5 3570k CPU Gigabyte Z77-DS3H motherboard Corsair CX600M power supply Corsair Vengeance DDR3 (2x8gb) RAM Sandisk 240 gb SSD My computer booted up great the first time I tried, I was able to get into the BIOS and edit the few things such as AHCI that needed to be changed for Mac OS X. I used [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to create a bootable flash drive and the install went well, downloaded and everything in twenty or so minutes. After the restart, it went back to the white screen with the apple and spun and spun for hours. I've researched a ton, got it to work by booting in safe mode (-x) and now via [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], it boots up fine, right into my SSD. However, I always have to manually boot it into safe mode or it spins at the welcome screen. What do I need to change? kexts, Idk Thanks
