Samsung RF511 Not Booting Without USB (10.9)

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys, first topic post! :thumbsup_anim:

 

I have a Samsung RF511 (I5 Sandy, 8GB RAM, Intel 3000 graphics) and It will not boot Mavericks without a USB bootloader still inside. :(

I have tried to install Chameleon and Enoch Multiple times to the HDD, but with no apparent luck, however... :)

I think that it has something to do with the F4 Recovery option at the POST or BIOS startup screen B), as when I pressed it,

It booted up chameleon ^_^, I clicked on OS X, and it crashed! :( So I formatted the HDD and tried again, nothing at all this time!

Don't know if this matters but...

When the USB is in it boots up but when its out, it gives me a Error:

"Reboot with proper boot device, or insert boot device and press a key"

 

If ANYONE knows of a solution, I will be of great appreciation :yes:

 

-UPDATE-

 

I have now followed this guide TO THE LETTER to boot Mavericks:

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/280756-guide-the-all-in-one-guide-to-vanilla-

os-x-including-chameleon-dsdt-for-beginners-updated-for-mavericks/

However the USB still won't work ???

 

This is what the Chameleon Installer list says:

If you're getting that message, you haven't installed Chameleon properly. What are your BIOS options set to?

All of them?

(im now trying ti use clover on 10.8) but getting "[AGPM Controller] unknownplatform

Use Chameleon. Clover doesn't work well. Your BIOS boot mode should be set to UEFI, and enable AHCI, VT-X and all that.

 

To solve the AGPM UnknownPlatform message, delete NVDAResman.next from /System/Library/Extensions in single-user mode, refresh kernel cache and reboot. Problem should be solved.

the reason being that I am trying this whole process again, to get 10.8 up, download 10.9 and chameleon and then I will be on the same level to everyone else:)

and ok, I will try that, but how do I because I cant get on?

You said you can boot the system with the USB, correct? Boot to the installer, select Terminal and navigate to your OS X installation drive by typing this command:

 

cd /Volumes/"<Insert partition name between these quotation marks>"/System/Library/Extensions

 

Then type:

 

mv NVDAResman.kext NVDAResman.kext.bak

 

This renames the kext to NVDAResman.kext.bak (to keep a backup). Now, reboot with the boot flags,

 

-v -f

 

And then see how it goes.

      I've been happily using macOS Sierra 10.12.6 (16G29) successfully for more than a year (all things working), but now I replaced my old Asus GTX 750 Ti card with a new Zotac GTX 1060 6GB, and it get stuck on boot just before going to the login screen (verbose boot screen attached).
       
      I've updated Clover with all its kexts, and reinstalled the Nvidia Web Drivers (using nvidia-update script), but it's still stuck in the same part. I can only enter using nv_disable=1
       
      My current Hackintosh specs:
      Motherboard MSI H110M Gaming (MS-7994) (LGA 1151/Intel H110/DDR4/SATA 3 & USB 3.1) CPU Intel Core i5-6600 6M Skylake Quad-Core 3.3 GHz LGA 1151 65W RAM HyperX FURY 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2133 (PC4-17000) HX421C14FBK2/16 Video Zotac GTX 1060 6GB SSD Samsung SSD 850 EVO 250GB HDD Western Digital Black 1TB (32MB Cache) (WDC WD1001FALS-00J7B1)  
      I've read that maybe it can be fixed patching the DSDT, but I don't know how to do it.
       
      My RunMe.app generated zip file and verbose boot screen are attached.
       
      Any kind of help is appreciated. Thanks.

      This was spurred on from a discussion in the Clover General thread. Where there was a debate on bcdedit being able create/read/edit (U)EFI Boot entries. I didn't think it appropriate to post all this information there and somebody may want to make use of this and its likely to get lost in that massive thread.
       
      Out of curiosity I decided to see if I could create an EFI entry using bcdedit. What can I say I like a challenge.  Whilst is not a documented method by Microsoft, as it turns out in a round about way it IS possible to create an EFI entry using bcdedit and these are the steps I went through to add UEFI Shell located on a USB stick to the EFI entries. 
       
      Third party software is available that can create and edit UEFI entries from Windows with better support and more features. I'm just making this information available in case those options are unavailable. 
       
      DISCLAIMER - This is not a supported method. Use at your own risk. I recommend backing up your BCD/Firmware variables/settings beforehand.
       
      1) Copy {bootmgr} entry.
      C:\Windows\System32>bcdedit /copy {bootmgr} /d "UEFI Shell" The entry was successfully copied to {34e8383c-73a7-11e9-9cb0-94de8078a7b5}. 2) Edit the new entry using the new GUID bcdedit generated in the copy step.
        a) Set the device and path for UEFI shell on my USB stick.
      bcdedit /set {34e8383d-73a7-11e9-9cb0-94de8078a7b5} device partition=G: bcdedit /set {34e8383d-73a7-11e9-9cb0-94de8078a7b5} path \EFI\SHELL\SHELLX64.efi   b) Clean up some of the stuff that was copied from {bootmgr} (optional as far as I can tell, just makes things tidier in bcdedit)
      3) Put the new EFI entry first in boot order. (optional)
       
      After completing the steps above, here is what "bcdedit /enum firmware" shows:
       
      I shutdown my computer and when I turned my computer back on it booted up into UEFI Shell. After exiting the shell my PC went on to boot Windows.
      Here is the resulting dump using "bcfg boot dump -v" from that shell:
       
      You may notice that the shell shows as "Windows Boot Manager" in the bcdedit output. This I believe is because of the "WINDOWS" at the beginning of the option data that bcdedit added to the EFI Boot entry. I also believe this why bcdedit shows my Windows 8 installation as "Firmware Application" because it has no option data. I don't know how to remove this data using bcdedit nor do I know how the option data, that bcdedit adds, will affect other EFI applications.

      There might be a way to create the EFI entry without copying the Windows entry but if there is I'm unable to find any documentation on how one would do so. If you use the create command then it just puts it in the BCD and I'm unaware of a way to tell it to create it in EFI instead, other than by doing the above.

      Hi,
       
      I've been trying to install Mavericks 10.9, I know it's older now, but It's honestly the version I want to use, the specs of the PC are:
      Asus P8H61-MX USB3
      i3-3220
      8GB DDR3 Memory
      GTX 750 ti
      500GB HDD
       
      I've been following this guide: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/280756-guide-the-all-in-one-guide-to-vanilla-os-x-including-chameleon-dsdt-for-beginners-updated-for-yosemite/
      But, after booting, this is the error screen I get, any guidance on what Kexts, SMBios settings, etc. I need? I can tell I'm probably missing something here.

      Thanks,
      Dan

      I've been trying to boot MacOS Mojave (10.14.4) after installation on a system I've built.
       
      I was able to successfully install Mojave through my USB, it seemed like the installer recognised my gpu and was working with it in the installation screen as it looked like it was outputting video at 4k resolution. When the computer restarted I then booted into the "Preboot" option on clover twice (the first time I tried the progress bar got to a certain point and then the system restarted) and on the second attempt the progress bar filled up completelly and the mac installer counted down to a restart (which I took as meaning that it had successfully finished the installer). After restarting however I tried to boot into MacOS from the SSD I installed it on, the apple logo showed up with a progress bar that filled up completelly before the screen turned black, then grey with a cursor over the grey screen. Also, it's probably worth noting that the GPU's fans continue to spin from turning the system on, up to the point where the screen turns grey after which they stop spinning.
       
      My system specs are as follows:
      CPU: i5 3470
      GPU: RX 570
      RAM: 16GB DDR3 1600MHz 
      MB: Asrock B75m r2
      SSD: Samsung 850 Evo 250gb
      WiFi/BT: Fenvi FV-T919 PCIE Card
       
      I am thinking that it's probably a gpu related issue as everything about the installation process has gone pretty smoothly up to the point where it's displaying a grey screen at bootup (and not going further). I have attached a photo of the output from rebooting with the verbose bootflag (it's missing one line at the bottom "busy timeout[1], (240s): 'AppleACPICPU'"), after the verbose output stays on the screen for a few minutes the screen then turns grey with the cursor and hangs there.
