For the last two days I've been trying to get OSX 10.9 Mavericks installed on my PC;
CPU: AMD Athlon ll X2 270
GPU: nVIDIA GTS 450
RAM: 2x2GB Kingston DDR3 1033MHz
Motherboard: MSI GF615M-P33 V2
Chipset Model: GeForce 7025
Southbridge Model: nForce 630a
Storage: 160GB 5400RPM IDE(!) HDD (primary)
In my bios I have no AHCI option, only IDE and RAID.
On my harddisk I have a Windows partition, a storage partition, and an unformatted partition for OSX.
I'm trying to install it using a thumb drive, on which I wrote the .DMG using Win32DiskImager.
The installation keeps getting stuck at at a "still waiting for root device" screen. I've tried the following flags: amd/amd69, ahcidisk=1 debug=8, GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No, USBBusFix=Yes, -f, -x in all combinations, none of them works.
The thing is, last night I got it to work using "amd64 ahcidisk=1 debug=8 GraphicsEnabler=No -f -v". The installation succeded, and the OS was very responsive (way better than Ubuntu), it had sound, networking and everything was working on the first run. This morning however I couldn't get it to start, so I erased the partition and tried to install it again, and this is where I am now. I don't know what else to do...
I'll attach some pics.
If you are willing to help, please do so in a way that a beginner can understand.
