    Attempting to boot up from a flash drive. Mac OS shows status bar as if it is loading up normally but then it stops, the screens shows black and white horizontal lines, then the language choosing screen comes up but the boxes are shaking like crazy. I have an integrated graphics CPU and according to Tonymac and LifeHacker, this can cause quirky problems. I tried entering a few boot flags (GraphicsEnabler=Yes GraphicsEnabler=No, etc) and no luck.

    Thoughts?

    What model of Mac do you have for starters (also what year)?

    Good question.

    Sure sounds like someone is not using a Mac but a "Hackintosh".
    We can't help with those questions, sorry.

    My problem in a nutshell is how do I install Yosemite 10.10 with an Intel i5 COU that has integrated graphics?

    Boot flags fixed the shaking problem and got me to a point but now OS will not finish installing. Help! I'm desperate!

    Closing thread, we can't help because it's a violation of the Apple EULA.
