Black Screeen Boot, No error.

Black Screeen Boot, No error.


I have tried running a vanilla macOS Sierra Install and it's a little too difficult with the hardware I have so I have decided to try Yosemite-Zone

  • Mobo: Not sure, some Lenovo mobo that came with the PC
  • 4GB RAM
  • CPU: Intel Core i5 3470S @ 2.9Ghz
  • Graphics: Intel Integrated HD 2500 (I know this is only slightly supported in Yosemite)

So when booting from the USB in VirtualBox and from my BIOS, it either carries on to boot Windows or says No boot medium.

I tried booting Yosemite-Zone.iso in VirtualBox and it didnt boot OSX Installer but I got to the bootloader.

The ISO is too big too fit onto a DVD and I tried 'burning' it to USB using rufus but it is an "unsupported image"

The reason I would like to use the ISO is because the DMG does not seem to work. Let me add that the USB I tried booting from had Yosemite-Zone.dmg on it from TransMac.

Not really sure what else to do, I know this is a useful community so any help is appreciated.

The .iso is for Dual layer DVD's (8GB).
For USB, you really need to use the .dmg. It should be a USB2.0 USB stick of at least 16GB and it should be in your USB2.0 port.

Can you give me the product name of your computer?

Just on a side note, for what I believe HD 2500 is not supported at all
