Trying to install 10.9 on Toshiba Satellite A55-5384

Question

Hi!

 

I am a first timer with hackintosh so please be patient. Thank you for your monumental effort to keep this going!

 

I tried to install maverick on my new toshiba satellite a55-5384 laptop (i3 with 4GB RAM). Other forums said that this laptop is compatible.

 

I created the usb drive and could install the maverick, but after installation it would not boot. So I made GraphicsEnabler=No during boot and it gave HPET not available panic. I looked into boot seetings of the laptop there is no HPET settings. So once again I tried to install and this time I clicked on customize button and I enabled the disabler kext and unchecked the HPET kext. It went to install but it never came out.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

What other boot flags have you tried? -x -v?

 

Yes I tried both the flags and also PCIRootUID=0

When you say:"It went to install but it never came out."

What do you mean? it never finished the install?

Also my Laptop doesn't have HPET in the bios but I could install Mavericks hmm.

Yes it happened when I enabled the disabler kext in customize, before that every time it completed the installation (tried numerous times with different settings) and every time it completed but failed in the boot (like I mentioned above).

 

Maybe there is a secret sauce somewhere :)
