    System shuts down at boot

    Thanks for your reply. This would be my first time working with it. What should I do once I boot into single mode?
  2. Hello. After several problems with High Sierra on APFS, I decided to do a clean install with HFS+ file system. Install went well, and I was even able to update to the latest 10.13.6 build with most recent Security Update. I then installed the latest compatible NVIDIA drivers, and I was able to boot with no problems. The next day, I powered up the system, and while it was loading, it suddenly shut down. I booted in verbose mode and was able to get this image. Not sure what it means, and I didn't find related terms in the forum. Hope someone can please help me figure it out. Thanks in advance.
  3. I'm having the same problem accessing the site. I'll keep checking.

    Stuck on boot after manual shut down

    Thank you both very much. It was a real pain in the ass dealing with this issue, but I was able to finally resolve it after trying many different things. Long story short, I tired Allan's method, but unfortunately didn't work. I did reinstall all my kexts and that helped me boot to the OS again. However, that same day 10.11.6 came out, and I decided to upgrade since I already was struggling with my computer. The upgrade took me back to square 1, and I wasn't able too boot all the way to the OS. After some digging in the forums, I came across a post that suggested trashing the Nvidia kexts. I did that and problem resolved. Not sure what exactly caused my problem, but I'm guessing it had something to do with the graphics kexts more than anything else. Thanks again for your help, guys. Cheers.

    Stuck on boot after manual shut down

    Ok, so I have access to MaciASL, and I have extracted my DSDT. How can I patch Device(RTC) in the DSDT? Is that something I can actually do with MaciASL? Or is that I edit on a config.plist or something like that? Thanks.

    Stuck on boot after manual shut down

    Hi again. I tried to boot without patches as you said, trying different combinations in clover (removing the plus signs shown on the image below) but all I get is the booting progress bar that reaches (very slowly) to the end but nothing happens. What else could I try? I've read RehabMan's guide to patching DSDT, but it mentions using MaciASL, which is only for OSX Lion and above, and as I mentioned before, I only have access to a Mac running Snow Leopard. Please let me know if there's anything else you can think I can try. Thanks.

    Stuck on boot after manual shut down

    Thank you, Allan. How can do the following: Currently I have access to a Mac Book running Snow Leopard and a Windows machine. Thanks again.
  8. Hi. Everything was working great on my 10.11.5 system. Today I was copying files between a sd card and a usb stick. All of the sudden, Finder stopped responding. I tried to re-launch it, but it didn't work. I tried to shut down the computer, but it was taking a very long time to do so. Since I was late for a meeting, I had to manually shut down the computer. After I came back from the meeting, I tried to start the computer, but I would get stuck on boot with the white Apple logo. Tried manually restarting, and here is where it gets weird: I pressed the restart button on the case and I booted directly into Windows (I have two drives, one for each OS). I went back to my BIOS to see why my booting options had changed, and I noticed my saved BIOS profiles were gone. Anyway, I tried bootflags -v and -x and this is what I get: I know you guys get this all the time, but I'm seriously in the middle of a project that I need to finish ASAP. Any help will be very appreciated. Thanks.
  9. vonmolk, can you please re-upload your plist file? The link is not working anymore. Thanks.
  10. Thanks for your reply, samma7896. Do you know where I can find a guide I can follow step by step to build a new machine? If your configuration is a popular one around here and requires little hassle to make it work, I will provably buy the same hardware you have. But I kinda got my eyes on a Gigabyte board with support for Intel's Thunderbolt: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128839&cm_re=Gigabyte_Z170_UD5-TH-_-13-128-839-_-Product Any thoughts are appreciated.
  11. Hello. It's been about 3 or 4 years since I built my first, and so far only hackingtosh. I did so fallowing a guide written by good guy ^Andy^, witch came with hardware recommendations. I now feel it's time for me to upgrade to a faster system to keep up with heavier work loads. I'm strongly considering building a hackingtosh around the new i7-6700K Skylake processor, but I haven't come across guides for this type of processor. I was wondering if any of you could recommend me a motherboard that's compatible and that won't become a hassle when trying to install OS X. Also, if there's a guide you know of, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

    Hello. I'm having a kernel panic. No idea what it means. Please help.
  14. Hello. That seems to have fixed the issue. Thank you very much for your tremendous patience and help. I really appreciated, Pimentel. I have one more question if you don't mind: Can I overclock with the settings I have, or do I need to change something? Thanks again.
