  1. Hello, I'm new to Hackintoshing and would appreciate some assistance. My Hardware specs are: Motherboard: AMD Crosshair V CPU: Phenom II 1090t RAM: 16GB DDR3 Graphics Card: Quadro FX 3800 HardDrive: Seagate 1TB I was successfully able to install OSX Yosemite 10.10.1 via my USB Yosemite(installation drive) using AMD kernel (1010-SSEPLUS-Rev.2) from this thread: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/302075-amd-yosemite-kernel-testing-for-help-use-the-help-topic/page-41 Currently I can get the system to boot from my hard drive installation via these flags: -x -v GraphicsEnabler=Yes npci=0x3000 However, If I want to boot into the Yosemite installer on my USB drive, I type these flags: -v GraphicsEnabler=Yes npci=0x3000 (Notice how if I boot into the Yosemite installer via the USB it does not require the safe mode -x flag.) Anyway, I also noticed that if I removed all of the nvidia kexts from S/L/E folder, I actually can boot into my Yosemite hard drive installation without the safe mode flag. However, this method isn't really a fix because I obviously want to use my Nvidia card drivers or else the entire desktop will be laggy and I won't have any graphics acceleration. Even if I place the nvidia kexts back into the S/L/E folder the system does not have graphics acceleration. However, when I check my the "About my MAC" it shows that my graphics card (Quadro Fx 3800) was detected properly. I also tried an AMD 5850 in the same machine, but same problem, would only get to the login screen if I boot via safe mode. If I do not use the safe mode flag when booting into my hard drive installation of Yosemite, I am stuck with the spinning color wheel cursor with a white background. Is there any way to achieve full graphics acceleration and boot into Yosemite without the safe mode flag? Am I experiencing two separate problems or are they related somehow?

    Stuck in Safe mode

    Hey there I have managed to install Mavericks onto my rig. But sadly I can only boot into the OS in safe mode plus the -x Kernel flag is stuck can't remove it. It's not in org.chameleonBoot.plist can't find it anywhere. If I want to boot normally I have to remove -x manually during boot. Not that normal boot is working gets stuck on Apple logo with spinning wheel of death. I tried verbose mode only thing I see is something related to bluetooth. I have tried all Kernel Flags known to man none work except safe mode. I have latest Chameleon and Installed all required Kexts and even SSDT for my specific motherboard. My build - GA-X79-UP4 Mobo (Latest Bios F7) - Core i7-3820 LGA2011 CPU - 32gb Kingston HyperX Beast 1600 RAM - nVidia 650Ti Boost OC GPU - Kingston HyperX 120gb SSD - Tons of regular Hard Drives I do not know what to do. Please help !
