Recommended Posts

Today after restarting the computer I got this screen 




I read that it is an error due to the bios that reads the network card (third preference) jumping hard drives and USB. When I start the computer I can not load the operating system from the hard disk and from the usb. how to solve? is there a way to format the hd from the bios? 

please help I do not know what to do

have this problem with my old corsaire ssd sata II (each time I shutdown my pc)


what I do to solve this? nothing special, just boot on your bios (touch F2, DEL...) and then F10 to save settings and reboot.

What guide?!


How can we help you, when

- we don't know how you built your USB installer?

- we don't know anything about your hardware?


If you're booting in UEFI mode, you can't use Chameleon. You have to use Clover.


If you don't know what a CMOS reset is, now is a good time to read your motherboard manual.

I was reminded of one thing, before I install windows 8 after the problem that I had, I formatted all the hard drive with GParted so I think I will not start because I deleted the partition that is used to start on a ssd for the installation of Mavericks. is it possible? how to be a formatted hard disk to be able to install from usb Mavericks? 


please answer me to the last question I need to know how to be a hard disk before starting the installation to return everything as it was before. At first I was able to complete the installation of mavericks

    • i think the "red light" you are referring to is that you have a optical SPDIF output (3.5 mm) combo jack. it most likely will be "red" when audio is active. 
    • Domanda , ma il tuo configplist lo ha settato cosi Gengik????
      Noto molte cose atipiche , tipo aperto con Clover configurator nella sezione ACPI il nome DSDT.aml NON è selezionato , quindi in teoria NON dovrebbe caricare il DSDT che hai in Clover ACPI Patch , se usi SSDT x la CPU NON dovrebbero servirti quelle personalizzazioni sempre in configplist sezione CPU ...
      Secondo me dovresti partire da un configplist pulito , xche sempre secondo me c'è rimasto delle schifezze di qualche tool x installare facile    EDIT
      Scaricando il configplist di jolly NOTO ha impostato +o- come intendevo fare io , sistemando quello  sopra elencato e bammmmm NON avvia , mi forniresti x favore Hack info che trovi nella mia firma ???
    •   Can you share the Clover folder that lets you boot?
    • yes it is. i can boot using a backup from a backup of my clover. i am just trying to fix the VGA /HDMI so i tried using the clover i got from Allan
    •     I mean't to fix that. The new attached EFI only contains new USB patch that will unlikely fix anything unless your hackintosh is installed on a USB drive. If it is installed on your hard drive, as I said, try playing with the patches I attached in the screenshot (i.e. disabling some of them).   Your SATA Mode is AHCI in the BIOS right?
