Hiya devs, this is my first attempt installing OSX on AMD PC. Unfortunately, it's old motherboard and doesn't support for AHCI. But you can ignore it since I patched the installer with ApplenForceATA and AHCIExtendedInjector. I also use amd_kernel by Andy Vandjick. 



I have installed iATKOS ML2 on my SATA HDD and using "amd_kernel arch=x86_64 -v" when boot the installer.


My problem is, I do not know how to boot it normally. It only boot with "amd_kernel arch=x86_64 -v -x" and since it's safe boot mode. I can't use a couple device on my motherboard, right? I get only 3MB VGA :|


I got this when boot using "amd_kernel arch=x86_64 -v"





it doesn't matter if I use PCIRootUID=1/0, GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No in addition.

I have wait this for about 20 minutes. Still no changes.

What I keep in mind is: "As long the led keep blinking while pressing caps lock for several times, it's still processing"


I don't mind to read more thread / pages. Just gimme the link :)

Thanks in advance.



I followed @artur-pt suggestion, post in there and get solution from @roon83.

@marl boot in safe mode and disable all the nVidia, ATI and inteI graphics kexts in your S/L/E.

So, I boot into safe mode, remove all ATI*, AppleIntel*,GeForce* and NVD* from S/L/E.

and boot normally.

Ta Daaa..... My graphics card detected!

but I planned to find better graphics card because my current is only 256MB which is poor for 10.8 user experience.




Thanks Devs!
