Hackintosh won't boot after new bios chip was installed

17 posts in this topic

Okay, so my BIOS got corrupted so I had to order a new BIOS. I installed the chip just now, changed the settings to what they where when I used to be able to boot up and then went to boot up and I get this error.

So, I figured what I needed to do was boot up from the flash drive again and use the terminal and enter these commands to retransfer the files.

 

cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/NullCPUPowerManagement.kext /Volumes/"OS X"/System/Library/Extensions/

cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/FakeSMC.kext /Volumes/"OS X"/System/Library/Extensions/

 

But when I try to boot up to the USB I get this

Ps. I've tried it with and "-v", "-v GraphicsEnabler=No" and "-v GraphicsEnabler=Yes" I get the same error every time.

Am I forgetting a step? :worried_anim:

Hi,

 

Check the bios settings, set SATA mode to AHCI etc.

 

Booting with USB, select the SSD, arrow down, and type -v -s.

Since you have a new bios chip, the problem should be in the bios settings.

 

No KP so far only a hang, could be graphics related also, is it in your signature? If not, provide the correct details please.

I really have no idea :P

Hope someone else can help you with this problem. Best of luck.

 

Yeah, the same thing happened. Hopefully someone will know what's going on. I really don't want to install windows again... :worried_anim:

Is the BIOS revision on the new chip is the SAME as the BIOS on the new chip? Was the old BIOS original or patched (SLIC added)? Might be you need to re-extract and redo DSDT. As it is quite hardware dependent thing...

 

Also be sure you are using legacy mode (BIOS mode), not UEFI mode. As the pics suggest that you have UEFI MB.

I am using legacy mode and as far as I'm aware it is the same version of the BIOS. I could be wrong. Also, I was using the original BIOS. I tried to install a patched BIOS I found on this site somewhere for my motherboard and that's when it messed up and Asus told me that I would have to buy a new chip.

 

 

New chip, solding or click?

 

 

I'm honestly not sure what you mean? I just popped the old BIOS chip out and then popped in the new one.

No solding, ok, thanks for the info.

So, OS X did run, with the original bios, no patched version, and the previous bios version is the same as the one that has been shipped to you?

Yeah there was no soldering. The original bios is what I ran OS X on with no problems and as far as I know this is the same version of the BIOS.

Thanks for correcting my English grammar.

I refer to 3.14r2 his post on this one, troubleshooting has been done for as far as my knowledge goes. Good luck :)

 

Okay, thank you for trying to help. I really appreciate it!
