Apple logo AND the loading loop thing go on for infinity

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi this is my first time doing anything like this, so when I successfully put Mac OS X on my desktop, I was a little jumpy and put it on my laptop. Both machines are a little old, but hey, if I can get it on a Pentium 4, then why couldnt I have gotten it on my laptop?


Anyway, The installation went like a charm and it installed quickly to, but when I boot it I get to the apple logo screen, and this is whats weird, I GET the little loop thing, but it never goes away... I tried -x, I tried cpus=1 and arch=i386, but it doesnt work, I can hear the faint humm my hdd gives off, so i know its not completely frozen.


Any help would be appreciated.

      Ciaossu raga, dopo i problemi di batteria avuti con Sierra, mi son detto "se devo fare le cose fatte bene le faccio sull'ultima versione di Mac Osx", sperando non sia un ragionamento sbagliato XD.
      Quindi eccomi quei. Dopo aver creato la chiavetta seguendo la guida trovata qui, sono sorti dei piccoli problemi.
      Installazione e primo avvio fatta con una cartella CLOVER trovata in rete, specifica per il modello in firma, ma al primo avvio dopo aver impostato la lingua e aver installato i vari kext, che prima erano nella cartella others di clover, ed il successivo riavvio, il bootloader non vede più l'hard disk, se faccio ripartire l'installer invece lo vede.
      Avevo letto che a qualcuno era successa la stessa cosa dopo l'aggiornamento da Sierra ad High Sierra. 
      Allego le due cartelle clover (pre e postinstallazione) sperando nel vostro aiuto.

       I have found on the internet working installer image with Sierra 10.12.4 and I placed it on the USB with TransMac and I tried to install it, but it didn't work right from the box untill I didin't find a "good" .config file with good flags for this laptop and I replaced it in the Clover. It has Clover 4049 in the EFI partition on the USB installer.
       That was my first problem to get Clover working on SSD but after some time I succeed to install the newest Clover 4128 on the SSD - EFI partition.
       I have installed at least 10 times this Sierra image on this laptop before I came here to post all of this because apparently I make always same mistake and I can't go any further with it. I hope that I did not messed too much with all of this because there is still working Windows 10 with working 4128 Clover. The only problem is that in biginning after first few times unsuccessful install of OSX I had different behavior then now of OSX if I would like to start it from SSD.
      In beginning, if I check flag -V and I try to start from SSD it will come to one point and it will hang enternally at that point and I must to restart notebook via the power button because it will never boot to OSX desktop without USB installer. I "played" apparently a bit too much and after changing and putting the same . config to EFI partition on Clover and sometimes even Clover will not show up untill I don't swich off the power on notebook.
      I went further and I thought, O.K. I will continue with installing kexts to see what I can get working. It was also not so easy and acctually I still don't know exactly which kext I really need to install and what I should avoid to install assuming I didn't use any patched DSDT cause I never make it so far.
      What I got it to work somehow till now with Pandora's Box (Before that I tried and other post install tools as Vietnam tool 1.9.6 with not so much succes, actually after using the Vietnam tool I got this kernel panic and immediate rebooting if I try to boot from SSD and it's never gone even after deleting the whole OSX partition and Pandora's box is noob's friendly tool) is:
      Booting from USB installer, Sound, Ethernet, USB (but I don't know if it's full speed or not) Some hardware monitoring info, touch pad and keyboard, trimming.
      I changed internal WiFi Intel N7260 card with bluetooth for the one Broadcom BCM94352HM WiFi+Bluetooth card which is here and overall advertised as working out the box with OSX but I didn't get it working untill now.
      Dedicated Nvidia GT 750M video card is not working and also Intel HD 4400 looks a bit too slow by opening applicatons box in the OSX.
      Webcam doesn't work, hibernate doesn't work, touchscreen doesn't work and booting from SSD doesn't work.
      This time I have installed OSX again and I have pressed F4 to extract my original DSDT file from this notebook(I don't know if it does a metter that I pulled DSDT.aml file after install of OSX and not before installation, I mean after rebooting) but I didn't boot to finish installing until I don't get good information from someone who knows where I make mistake. I only tried to boot once from SSD to see if something is changed with immediate kernel panic, but there is still one there waiting to be removed.
      - I have attached here Clover config file which is in the EFI partition on the USB and it's a same config file from EFI on the SSD.
      - Also I have attached an already patched DSDT file for Dell Inspiron 7537 which I found here in Download section but it is patched for El Capitane and is not from this laptop so I don't know if it can help.
      - I also added a full folder of Clover from the EFI partition on the SSD.
      Who can help me to bring this installation to the end ?
      I have not so much time to finish it so please don't hesitate to help me in it. Thanks !
      Greetings from Holland !
      Config file from EFI partition in Clover.7z
      Patched DSDT from InsanelyMac for El Capitan.7z
      Not patched DSDT from this Dell 7537.7z
      CLOVER from EFI partition on the SSD .7z

      The is the Post-Install topic following the Ryzen Clover Installation Guide for macOS Sierra. 
      If you have yet to install Sierra on your Ryzen machine, check out that thread for help installing.
      Here we can discuss post install troubleshooting such as well known  issues with NVIDIA Drivers, audio interfaces, etc. 
      Here is one workaround for audio that I am using - My audio was not working and I spent days trying to get it to work (ASUS Prime X370 Pro) to no avail. Eventually I bought this for $10 and it worked immediately with no drivers or setup: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B072BMG9TB/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
      One question for starters, I am using a Radeon R9 280x with no graphics injection. If I put my Ryzen build to sleep, it changes power states correctly. When Powered back on, the monitors don't turn on. I don't know if this is related to the GPU, or just an issue in general, but in any case I would appreciate any help!
