    MSI MPOWER Z87 install help

    @C.Frio, I don't really want to take that risk, especially since MSI isn't on the list. I don't have anything installed on that machine either. The hard drive was already formatted.

    MSI MPOWER Z87 install help

    Let me be honest with you: First, I did try ton*y's tools, but it still did the same thing. Right now I just want to get it up and running, without too many non-solvable issues. I get the fact that his tools use other people's software without giving credit, but if it gets the job done, I'm happy with the stuff people made. So here's the problem: I did what you said, and tried every form of bootloader, software, etc. All of them end the same way: with the computer restarting. I've used -v -f GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x2000 (also tried 0x3000) -F. I did try safe mode, but it does start, but i dont know where it stops, it still restarts basically. Right before it reboots, its says its loading the kernel with all the dots (...........) and then it restarts. What do I Do? I've tried Nir*esh, i*Atkos, O*laria, UniBe****, and with those boot flags: Still the same thing! I configured my bios with the settings that i could find. I know SATA mode is AHCI and HPET is in 64 bit (even though there is no setting for it, other forums about this Mobo says so). Thanks! DustinKazi

    The second link said to not use UEFI usb boot, and set it to legacy. Either way It didn't work. Also, I can't find the setting for NX bit or XD bit in my bios setup. And I have been booting with these flags: -v npci=0x2000 (those were default) GraphicsEnabler=No

    Well I did it, and its still doing the same thing. It said not to use UEFI boot, so I changed that, and it still didn't work. I wasn't sure where to find all the settings, but I found the closest thing to it. Still doesn't work is what i'm saying.

    I tried to run it, but my computer just restarts. It says loading kernel cache and then restarts. What do I do? Must I go to the not-so-nice Tonymacx86 ...

    Hello! I'm brand new to installing OS X onto a physical machine, so please pardon my newbishness note: I posted this in the wrong place (OSX 10.9 installation), so If this is also the wrong place, could an admin please move me to the right place thanks! So Here's the build I'd like to install OS X 10.9 (or 10.8 if 10.9 wont work): Processor: Intel Core i7-4770k Graphics Card: MSI Twin Frozr GTX 660 Ti (The MSI version of Nvidia's GTX 660 Ti?) Memory: Patriot Viper 32GB (4x 8GB cards) Motherboard: MSI MPOWER Z87 Chipet (Does have the UEFI thing) DVD Drive: ASUS 24x DVD Burner DRW-24B1ST HDD: 1 or 2 TB (Don't think it matters) I built it with the best that I could get, thinking that it would be better so that OS X would run really fast So will my hardware support? and what boot flags (I read some of the instructions) should I use? Will provide everything necessary to get this baby working xD Thanks! DustinKazi P.S. Could I also possibly install Xcode and iLife on it (via the DMG files that I found)?

  8. Hello, I'm new to all this OSX stuff, and was wondering weather it is possible to install OSX 10.8 on a Lenovo Thinkpad 14 (Intel Core i3, 2GB RAM, 200GB hard drive). I found this "Niresh" installer and was wondering if I should use that or use some other process to install... If I can't install it on my laptop, could i possibly install it onto a VirtualBox and how? Thanks --DustinKazi P.S. Sorry for my noobishness. I'm all new to this, and really want to get my hands onto OSX.
