It has been working fine with full QE/CI, sleep and etc for me until the DP4 update. After DP 4 It can only start in safe mode. In regular mode it just freezes with an unrelated log message during boot.

Chameleon 2254 bootloader

 

Output is thru on board hdmi

When -v looks like its gonna boot normally but instead of the regular screen where it completes the setup I get a black screen with a cursor in the upper left corner

Cause of my issue:

 

When both my external monitor (HDMI) and laptop internal screen are being used, it will freeze during boot.

 

Workaround:

 

I have to unplug the HDMI display and plug it back in. This unfreezes the boot process.

 

This issue is new for me in DP4.

Exact same thing happened to me after installing DP4 (as well as Logic Pro X if that makes any difference).

 

When I boot without -v, it boots, then right before it goes to the desktop, a white screen appears with the spinning loading icon in the center of the screen. Booting in verbose leaves it at a black screen with a cursor in the top left corner...Wait like 3 minutes and the monitor looses signal and never comes back on...but it's still up and running. I've never seen anything like this before and have no clue where to start with troubleshooting. Has anyone found a solution to this problem?

dp4 breaks multimonitor ability on my 7850.  it doesn't appear to have updated either video kext though.  (7000controller/radeonx4000).  it appears to be an issue with the bootloader injection, I expect the next update for clover will fix it.  he's gone for 2 weeks so might take a little while.

When it's stuck on the spinner unplug your monitor for a few seconds then plug it back in. Tell me if that fixes the issue.

I managed to solve the problem by taking the cable,

HDMI during boot, after about 45 seconds hooked again and everything was perfect.

Same here. Black screen with blinking cursor. 

I tried to delete all NVDA kexts and disabled GraphicsEnabler and so I can reach the desktop.

Looked the logs, the WindowServer crashing but I don't know why.

So if you just deleted the nvidia kexts and set GraphicsEnabler to no to boot to the desktop, couldn't we just take the nvidia kexts from DP3 and install them on DP4? or is it not that easy?

Same situation with GA-Z77N, i5 3750k, HD4000, only fake smc kext, GE=NO, device id (for HD4000) or DSDT, DP3 works with new update white apple screen.

I think is graphics problem.

I wonder if anyone using a real Mac has had this issue...if so then I guess it'll hopefully be fixed in the next DP. If not I'll just have to move everything back to my ML partition til the Golden Master comes out and more hackintoshers are playing with it :(

Got it on my 2012 MBA and not an issue there

I had a problem after upgrading to DP4, my GAZ77-DS3H couldn't continue booting after a Bluetooth message of something...

 

Then I noticed that with the -f flag the Extensions were not listing at startup, so I added UseKernelCache=No and then the installation completed without a problem.

 

I think I read that the -f option is no longer used.

 

Found it : Common boot options for Chimera, Chameleon, #####, iAtkos, and more  ;)

 



-f
Ignores kext caches during bootup on Mac OS X Snow Leopard. If you did not install a kext properly (usually because you forgot to run System Utilities in ##### after installing a new kext), your kext cache will be damaged, and Mac OS X might become unbootable unless you use this boot flag. The kext cache was replaced by the kernel cache in Mac OS X Lion, so theoretically, the -f boot flag should no longer work; however, this boot flag can still help some Hackintoshes boot (for reasons unknown).

I just tried booting without -f and, unfortunately, it was the same result :/ thanks for the suggestion though! I think I'll try with and without -f along with some other combinations to see if I can get to the desktop.
