AMD with ASUS Mobo

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hy guys, please forgive me if I post in the wrong place, first time here. 


 


I finally got the time to try out Mavericks, I wanted to give it a shot since forever.


My system is:


AMD Phenom II X6 64 1100T


ASUS M4A88T-V EVO/USB3 with AMD 880G/SB710 chipset


ASUS nVidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti video card


 


I managed to install Niresh Mavericks with the amd64 boot flag. After restart I get the "Still waiting for root device" problem. I re-installed numerous times with different settings for the SATA, including the still waiting fix that was included in the installer, tried all the boot flags I could find, but still no luck. I understood that I need a driver (kext) for my southbridge/sata driver, but did not manage to find anything by simply google-ing. 


 


What else can I do? Where else can I find solutions? Or what other method should I search? I think someone from here knows this hardware setup and can help me.


 


Thank you in advance!

      I'm trying to install High Sierra 10.13.3 on an ASUS N552VW laptop, and I get stuck after this message:
      "could not recover SATA HDD after 5 attempts, terminating" 
      And some other warnings afterwards.
      Specs:
      CPU: Intel Skylake 6700HQ 2.6GHz
      RAM: 16GB DDR4
      2TB HDD + 128GB SSD
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 530 + Nvidia GTX960m
      I'm installing using a 16GB USB3 flash drive on one of HDD volumes (UEFI Mode)
       
      I uploaded the verbose log and clover config.plist
      config-new.plist

      Ciao ragazzi,
      alla fine sono riuscito a risolvere il problema che riscontravo qualche mese fa, dopo l'ottima EFI sistemata da @gengik84 e l'ho risolto rimuovendo dart=0 che creava kernel panic e problemi quando la batteria scendeva sotto ad un livello di batteria basso. Adesso il sistema non crea più problemi di kernel panic, ma volevo chiedervi se allo stato attuale secondo voi c'è qualcos'altro da ottimizzare.
       
      Vi allego la EFI.
       
      Grazie anticipatamente.

      So after a gazillion tries with High Sierra, i gave up and decided to try Mojave. I had nothing to lose, afterall.
       
      I started from scratch. I reformatted my thumb drive. Made it bootable from the Mojave [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. Booted with it. Selected my language. It installed a little bit. Rebooted. I Booted from the SSD. Installed a bit more. Rebooted. I Booted from the SSD again and it finished the installation.
       
      I went through the basic setup and got to the desktop. I ran [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and selected my options and "built" it.
       
      Thinking i was a-ok, i decided to reboot, just to make sure all was well.
       
      After about 1min, i lose display.
       
      I thought i had messed something up in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], so i decided to go back to my mac mini, redo the thumb drive all over again.
       
      I go to boot from the thumb drive and when i get to the language selection screen, i lose all USB usage, so i cant even get in to wipe the SSD and start over. So, Mojave is still on the SSD, but i cant get to it because i lose display.
       
      Im attaching a screenshot of Verbose mode right before i lose display.
       
      I would greatly appreciate any help to get back into it or at least help getting it re-installed!!

      First, my build:
       
      Asus ROG Strix H370-I mobo
      i5 8400 cpu
      32gb ddr 4 2133
      1tb samsung evo 860 ssd
       
      Ive finally gotten to the point where the installation of HS loads to the language selection screen, but then i lose all usage of every USB port.
       
      Im at a loss of what to do from here.
       
      According to others, i have the proper files in the kexts/other folder as well as the drivers64UEFI folder.
       
      Does anyone have any suggestions as to what i can do? Im getting kinda desperate as ive been at it for a week now and this is as far as ive gotten.
