Niresh OSX 10.8.2 "You need to restart your computer" Error

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. First off, some system specs:

CPU - i7-4770 @ 3.4GHZ
MB - Hewlett-Packard 2AF3 1.0
GPU - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 645
OS - 64 Bit Windows 8
RAM - 16GB (not sure of the make)

Alright, I installed the Niresh OSX 10.8.2. Afterwards, it restarted and went to the grey apple screen for a few seconds and transitioned to this screen shortly after:


I restarted and used the -v to give you guys something to work with. This is where it stopped:


Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

-v shows no error other than graphics.

can you keep the machine on longer? ~10 minutes

and also, i believe that haswell is too new for 10.8.2 so try mavericks or 10.8.5

Hey all you have to do is booting in safe mode (-x) then go to S/L/E and delete these kexts : 


  • ATI...
  • GEFORCE...
  • AMD...
  • NVD...

Then use kext wizzard to repair permissions and rebuild caches, reboot and you'll get it working. 


PS : you have to install a fixed driver for your video card after, PEACE!
