I think its related to the boot and it cannot boot so the black screen appears. I taught myself the clover stuff and now I know a lot. As I don’t have access to any mac I used the cloud clover configurator to edit clover. I put some boot flags and checked many options but still the black screen comes up. I got a debug from it and I see nothing bad in it but there is a line that says resolution 1366×768 not found. I made the installer again for few times with usb3 device but still the black screen.

I do appreciate the response. After giving up on trying the image posted earlier in this thread, I spent an afternoon on Virtualbox, following a couple of different howtos, and never could get the virtual machine to boot Snow Leopard.

I said incorrectly said Ivy Bridge in my post, but on further inspection this HP appears to be a Haswell, with a H87 chipset and Intel 4600 graphics. Has anyone been successful with one of these or similar? I have a HP 15 NOTEBOOK r203tx whose specs are 5th gen.
Intel core i5 5200u with 4Gb ram, Intel HD graphics 5500 coupled with Nvidia Geforce 820m and HP’s own motherboard with Insyde F41.A bios which doesn’t have much customization options. Hence i couldn’t find a sata controller setting. But anyways i had previously installed Yosemite on my laptop & multibooted with windows 8.1 with clover. But now when i am trying to install sierra its showing me errors like system uptume in nanoseconds. Tried all plist files, custom plist files, old plist files, changed boot flags, nothing works. What shall i do?
Glad to see I'm not alone with my 945GCM-S!! Anyway, switching to 'compatible' mode can't do the trick for me, since I've got 4 SATA HDs and 2 IDE optical drives, which I want all to work. So I'm trapped with the usual IOATAFamily KP, netkas' PIIXATA or not.
If I put my 10.5 vanilla IOATA, it works in x86 mode, but I have to forget x64 until it gets solved. Using a patched DSDT.aml too (using 1.20 official bios), for boot hangs without it (in 10.5 too). Do you get the internal ethernet controller to work by the way? Edit: after more researches, it might related to my amount of RAM (4 Go); investigating with maxmem flag. Hi ihave Asrock 945GCM-S also and i can's install leopard.
Can you tell us how to install it? I try to install IPC. Mine: Asrock 945gcm-s 1 Ram 1 GB DVD rom HardDisk Sata 80 GB nvidia GeForce 7 series.
