     If it gets stuck on loading (everything’s frozen) or there 
     is a red cross over an Apple Logo (or the loading circle)

  • What config do you have and have seen bios seeting if not see that first and try

  • Gigabyte MB GA-H61M-S2P-B3 (rev. 1.1) , 2 GB Ram, Intel Dual Core processor, nvidia geforce 210 1GB

    Bios Setting,
    AHCI, HPET – Change this to 64-bit, USB HDD first boot

  • If you have any settings in your bios like ACPI mode S2 or S3 if yes then change it S3 or Auto
