Here is my notes of the installation.
Issue #1: Continuous Reboot
You need to add the bootflag called busratio, in my case it was busratio=16. And here is the link to get busratio for most of Intel Core i processor.
Issue #2: Freezes at "Do You Already Own a Mac" screen
I don't know why it freezes but the solution is, you need to skip the registration process and please follow the steps to skip.
- Reboot your system
- Boot into single user mode by providing the boot flag -v -s busratio=16
- Once you are in the terminal (single user mode), mount the / with R/W permission by executing the commands
/sbin/mount -uw /
(Note: Do not forget to type / (slash) I skip it most of the time :-)
- Skip the Registration by executing the following command
You can create a new user with commands (link) alternatively, you can reset the password for the user root and use it to create a new user once login. Execute the following command to reset the password in single user mode.
- launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.DirectoryServices.plist
- passwd root
Network, Sound, USB wasn't working.
