Hi All,

I am having some issues with installing Yosemite on my system specs are:

Asus Crosshair IV Formula
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T
8GB DDR3 1333
ASUS R9 280X

I am using this image:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bw4QHW ... l1M00/view

And am booting to the USB installer only using the '-v' flags.

Sorry for the poor quality images, I think the pertinent error is:

Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSInvalidArgumentException', reason: '*** =[NSFileManager copyItemAtPath:toPath:error:]: source path is nil'

Which looks like a storage error? I'm not sure. I've seen a few errors on here about GFX cards but no solution.





This is my first ever go at hackintosh so not sure where to start can anyone help?

Other points are:

  • Can't boot from USB3 port (i have found some fixes on here but no idea how to apply them to the USB installer)
  • If I try to reboot into the HardDrive after install then it loads the initial text and reboots, i have also tried in safe mode and still reboots

Appreciate any help.
