I have tried everything I could think of, but alas, I could not get to the GUI. I continuously receive kernel panics no matter what I try.


My specs are as follows:

-AMD FX-9370 4.4ghz CPU

-Asus Crosshair V Formula Z Mobo (no integrated graphics)

-MSI Radeon HD 7850 2gb GDDR5

-16gb DDR3 1600

-New 500gb HDD (for Mavericks)

-1tb HDD with Windows 7 installed (with access to any program/file I may need)

-Micro Center 28gb (marketed as 32gb) flash drive with Niresh mounted to boot with


I have a PowerColor AX5450 Radeon HD 5450 (Cedar) 1gb DDR3 card that I can install if necessary, but I would prefer to use my MSI HD 7850 after the installation is complete.


Anyway, with my specs listed above, what will I need to do to get OSx Mavericks installed and working on my machine? I have tried bootflags, and most of them cause my system to restart immediately after pressing "enter". Thank you in advance!


P.S. I apologize if this is in the incorrect sub-forum. I did not see a "help needed" category :/
