Hi all,

I've been trying to install Mac OSX 10.10.0 on my HP Envy 17-J053EA. The specs are as follows:


- nVidia GT 740M

- Intel i7-4700MQ (With Intel integrated graphics) (Haswell)


- 1920x1080 Display


I changed the BIOS options to disable virtualisation and secure boot, and enable legacy boot.

I got it to boot into the installer (past the Apple logo) using the following flags:

/haswell nv_disable=1 cpus=1 -v -x

However, once I'd clicked through the language and selected my 500GB HITACHI External HDD to install OSX to, it got to "About 14 minutes remaining"

I can not get anything to happen now, it says "Debugger not configured hang" (Or something similar, I had to turn off my laptop as the fan went crazy) and mentions something about the kernel.

I installed the "yosemite-zone.dmg" (10.10) onto an 8GB SanDisk Facet with Transmac on Windows 10.

Any help would be appreciated!
