Mavericks Login Screen Gone, Black screen with white dash upper left corner

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

 

Two weeks ago I was cleaning my system from old and unused drivers and leftovers and it looks like that I deleted something that was crucial.

 

Using UninstallPKG I removed unused Printer drivers, Old Dj Controllers, TeamViewer, RedGiant Components, LeagueOfLegends leftovers, LogMeIn leftovers, and more...

 

My System:

-------------

MacBook Pro (Early 2011) "Core i7" 2.2Ghz, 15-Inch, dual graphics processors -- an AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 1 GB of dedicated GDDR5 memory and an Intel HD Graphics 3000 graphics processor that shares 384 MB of memory with the system.

 

Description Source:


--------------------------------

 

THE STORY:

--------------

- Bought my MacBook in July 2011, I updated to Lion OSX in July 2011 and since then I was just upgrading, never did a clean install.

 

- Two years ago using BootCamp I installed Win8, which suddenly after a while messed up my bootloader, and the only way I was able to boot into my system was by:

 

-- using Command+S (single-user mode)

 

-- /sbin/mount -uw /

 

-- exit

 

to proceed to login screen. If i avoid CMD+S, Apple's logo appears then the loading bar + the spinning wheel and after a while eventually the system hangs, and it shutdown.

 

- Since then using fsck my disk prints out disk0s2: I/O error... (I know that my disk might have some bad sectors, or maybe is failing, but my files are still there, I can still access them via terminal)

 

Now my System, OS X Mavericks cannot boot and it stuck at a black screen with a flashing vertical white dash in the upper left corner, in which every 10 seconds is doing some kind of refresh trying to load stuff and it shows the cursor for just 1 second, or less.

 

I believe that behind the black screen, Login Screen does not exist because:

 

- I can occasionally see in an instance the cursor with a grey screen.

 

- Commands appear occasionally on the black screen where the white flashing dash is (SMC, en0, etc)

 

- Commands also appear sometime if I close the lid and re-open it after a while

 

- I have tried to press the power button and after the button S (read somewhere that it should Sleep), never happened.

 

 

 

[TRIED EVERYTHING]

 

- Reset PRAM

 

- Reset SMC

 

- Deleted the /var/db/.AppleSetupDone

 

- Tried to access Hardware Diagnostic, never started

 

- Tried boot using Left Shift, never booted

 

- Tried Recovery Mode, CMD + R

 

-- Verifying permissions, but cannot repair permissions

 

-- Verifying disk, but cannot repair disk

 

-- Tried resetpassword using Utilities-> Terminal, cannot save a new password

 

- Tried second screen using Thunderbolt->HDMI with now luck, the screen is white

 

 

My next step is to buy a Thunderbolt cable and connect it to another mac and see if i can repair the permissions and or repair the disk using the second mac.

I have my some files backed up, but there are a lot on-going projects with 3rd party plugins, so I want to try my best to make it boot!

 

Any other ideas guys? I am dying here

      Hey.
      I have a Dell Vostro 3267 system unit. It has a Skylake processor Intel Core i5-6400 with integrated graphics Intel HD 530, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD. The monitor is connected via HDMI.
      I faced a problem that if I enter Hackintosh in a sleep mode, and then I press something on the keyboard, the system unit wakes up (I hear as coolers begin to turn), but the monitor does not react in any way.
      I tried to disconnect and reconnect the HDMI cord, tried to inject EDID in config tried to change SMBIOS on MacMini8,1, but it did not change the situation.
      How to solve the problem?
       
      P.S.
      All in Mojave 10.14.6
      CLOVER.7z

      Hi,
       
      I've just bought Giga Z390 Ultra (+8700k) because I read a lot of people reported this mainboard will easily work.
       
      I create a USB boot drive following the post on Olarila forum. It booted and get through the verbose but then the installation enters the black screen. It seems that it's still going on but there's no signal. 

      I read some topics here and there but still can't figure out how to get HD 630 works in Mojave. I've been using 10.12.6 Sierra on Z77X-UD3H + 2600K for a very long time, so I know I have to update some news info to get this work. But could you please lead me to some of helpful topic because there are a lot of them out there.
       
      Thanks so much!
