  1. I have now tried 5 different methods (including the ones in the link). No matter what I do, I cannot get past a black screen when I boot from the SSD. The most luck I had was with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. I can boot from the USB and install OSX, but once installed, I cannot boot from the SSD on which I installed OSX. It just hangs after it goes through verbose mode. I would also like to reiterate that I am not a programmer, and have very close to no idea what I'm doing. I feel like there is just some boot flag I'm not entering, or something. It seems like something specific to my hardware. Even if you could tell me which piece of hardware is causing the problem, that would be helpful. Please let me know if I can offer any more information that will help you help me.
  2. Hi all, I am trying to load OSX Mavericks onto my new build, but it wont boot from the SSD after it installs OSX from the USB. I have used the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and Chameleon methods with the same result from both. I am not a programmer, but am far from computer illiterate. I have tried various boot flags in various combinations (-v, -f, -x, GE=No, PCIRootUID=0|1, cpus=1, dsdt=no, npci=0x2000|0x3000, and all that fun stuff) but none of them seem to work. Could anyone offer advice on what I should do?
