  1. update on 05/20 all attempts failed. at the end, i created an installation flash drive, and boot the system to the installation phase, attempted 1, use Disk Tool to fix the partition -- failed; 2, use Time Machine to restore the partition -- succeeded after erase the drive with APFS format. fianallllllllllllllllly, my Mojave is back. many thanks for your help, guys.
  2. many thanks, go get an attempt.
  3. i took a quick screenshot, as attached, it looks like the problem caused by some clover driver?
  4. guys, I am facing a weird problem, as below: system: thinkpad e431 bootloader: clover os: win10 + mac os 10.14.2 everything went well until I hard shut the system (by pressing the power button) while the os was inactive, problem was: the mac os option was missed in clover, so as the recovery option. the partition is still there in Windows Disk Manager program, but it just doesn't show up in clover. what i've tried: use DiskPart tool (win) to set the partition's id: set id=48465300-0000-11AA-AA11-00306543ECAC sadly, it doesn't work. anyone has any clue? thanks a lot.
  5. Hi, I am using gigabyte B360m aorus + i3 8100 to set up my system, just finished dual boot with win10 and mojave, mostly it works fine apart from the reboot issue (which i am still looking for solution)... haven't tried AMD cpu, seems it require a specific kernal. try to explore the AMD part of this forum for kernals. wish your success!

    [help]antique PC stuck at installing 10.10

    sit rep: finally come up to the installing screen with boot arg "nv_disable=1". Now i am facing another serious issue which has encountered before -- e.g. the installation doesn't recognize IDE mode HDD (the MB supports ICH9 controller -- which is not in the original kext). have tried ATAinjector, and patched the ICH9 with device ID, doesn't work so far... will keep on watching

    [help]antique PC stuck at installing 10.10

    thanks for your advice, rio..will try this,see if it approaches btw, if it is the cause, boot clover with nv_disable=1 may also work, right?
  8. hi there, when attempting install 10.10 to my old PC, it reboots everytime when attached pic shows up. my hardware is: mb - unika p35 (with ich9) 775pin cpu - intel xeon x3210 video card - nv geforce 8600gt could anybody know what was wrong? or is it possibly because of the video card, or the powermanagement? thank you so much for help!
  9. sure, thanks a lot, will try this.
  10. hi guys, I have successfully installed os X 10.10.5 on my laptop ThinkPad E431 with Clover boot. It worked fine before, today I tried to hide unnecessary boot volumes (like, winApp, winData etc.) in Clover/config.plst. However, after I had done that, the useless boot options were gone indeed, and the os X can't be boot too. At first it stuck at "IOAPIC" (as show on image), then after a while, it goes to "System uptime in nanoseconds ..." and died. Can anyone give some suggestions please? thank you so much for help.
  11. [update] nothing is deleted, I only replace the PS2 wired keyboard & USB wired mouse with a wireless USB keyboard/mouse set... still no luck. now the information is: "USBMSC(non-unique)..." then, (blurry screen with a stop sign) "still waiting for root device"
  12. My fault, but I am unaware if it matters when the "shown name" changed
  13. thanks Herve, luckily I deleted nothing there. But I tried to un-plugin all PS2 devices and replace with USB keyboard and mouse, still it stuck at there.. and a few moment afterward, a blurry screen with a STOP sign and "still waiting for root device..." comes out. someone said this because the installation was from an USB flash drive.. and the USB driver doesn't function well.. "burn the dmg into a HD partition and install from it" may resolve the problem; another suggestion is to mark the partition as AF (MBR) or set an ID to it (sorry I forgot the ID's formation, for GPT). Like I said, lots of people here get hacintosh installed by lucky, I've searched lots of posts here, yet none of them to explain the mechanism of WHY & HOW people get hacintosh successful(or failed). For now, I still get no clue. Thank you again.
  14. Hi, with Herve and other kind people's help, I finally installed the os x 10.10.5 on my PC. However, when I boot it with clover, it get stuck at "VoodooPS2Mouse 1.8.9 loading..." Relavent setting: 1. MB with ICH9, with IDE option only; 2. PS2 wired keyboard, USB wired Mouse; in local hacintonsh forums, the suggestion are below: 1, open AHCI for SATA on MB; 2, if no AHCI option, inject the patched kext; 3, inject a PS2 kext, such as VoodooPS2**; 4, delete a kext under S/L/CoreServices, to avoid loading keyboard when initiating the system; 5, use an USB keyboard; My attempts: 1, the ATA patcher is already injected. (no doubt, otherwise the HD can not be recognized even in the installation) 2, VoodooPS2**.kext (v1.8.9) is injected. I also tried another version (v1.8.11) VoodooPS2, or to delete the plug-ins: VoodooPS2touchpad.kext, VoodooPS2Mouse.kext in the VoodooPS2**.kext; 3. Can't find the so-called S/L/CoreServices folder; can anyone help please?
