Day 4 of No luck? Qosmio X505-Q8100X

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I have the Toshiba Qosmio X505- Q8100x.


Past 4 days I have been trying everything to install OSX on it.


I tried many different boot loaders, I have the retail version which I bought and still no luck.


If I try to boot into it I get the "You need to restart your computer screen"


If i do a safe mode or verbose, it starts loading and hits me to the "Your computer has been up for 3242390 nanoseconds" and stops there.


I cannot get past any of those screens and have tried almost every version and every boot loader.


Been reading a whole lot on the internet but cant seem to find a solution


Any ideas?
