Installs OK, but does not boot! Niresh, help please :)

Question

Hello everyone,

 

I'm trying to install 10.9.0 OSX Mavericks and I've got the

following hardware:

 

CPU: Intel Core i7 3840QM

Chipset: Intel HM77 (Ivy Bridge)

VGA: NVIDIA Geforce 680M (2x)

RAM: 16 GB Corsair Vengeance

 

I have reinstalled like 7 times now, but nothing seems to work.

I've already tried different boot options (-x -v -s -f USBHubFix=Yes etc).

 

My last attempt seems to be the best one, but it still hangs at the
AppleIntelCPUManagement.kext. I've already tried installing with the
AppleNull...kext, but no luck either.

 

Can someone please tell me what options I should choose when installing
Mavericks on my hardware? Is there any link which explains what options
I should choose? Maybe @ himself, can help me?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Grtz from Belgium!

Update, I've removed the kext file, as found a similar topic on this forum:

 

cd /Volumes/<MAC OS X VOLUME>/System/Library/Extensions

rm -rf AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext

 

The booting process continues now, but it seems that it stops booting at the
Apple logo. It's in verbose mode, but I'm unable to see the errors that hang
the system, what should I do next?

Than its hanging on your graphics. Read this article and find a fiiting kext for your graphics.

http://www.hackintosh.zone/osx86.html/hackintosh/articles/fix-dsmos-has-arrived-and-waiting-for-dsmos-problem-hackintosh

I think you're spot on. I searched on Google and I've found the following

boot switch, which allowed me to boot into Mac OS X Mavericks as the

"root" user:

 

boot: -v -x PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=No

 

Everything seems to be working now, in safe mode. I'll try booting

into normal mode now, with the following switch:

 

boot: -v PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=No

 

I'll let you guys know how it went! Where can I find the correct kext file for

my 680Ms?

 

Kind regards!

Hello,

 

Ok, so it boots up, also in normal mode.

However, how do I know whether it's using the correct NVIDIA kext

or the normal display driver?

 

I've taken a screenshot here:

Also: Can I just use the Software Update to update to 10.9.4?

 

Kind regards!

Ok, once again, I think I found it myself:

 

http://users.skynet.be/foclan/nvidia.JPG

 

Now I only need to know 3 more things:

 

- How to make the "GraphicsEnabler=No" the default boot switch?

Answer: http://www.macbreaker.com/2012/01/how-to-use-boot-flags-for-your.html

- Can I use the Mac OS X updates?

Answer: Yes, you can try to install them, and... (see below)

- If yes, what should I backup before updating?

Answer: It seems that you have to backup mach_kernel from the root /.and recover it when updating messes it up

 

Kind regards!

More users should be like you, make a topic and answer it themselfs. :D

 

BTW you are using the right kext's, your card is natively supported :P. You could download the nvidia cuda drivers from nvidia, that will make performance even better.

Hi

 

I recently installed Niresh's Hackintosh on my system.

 

This was installed on separate HDD but after installation, it started booting but after Apple logi appeared, the next screen was blank Whitish Grey and system did not moved further.

 

My System config is :

 

Asus Z97 Deluxe Mother Board

Intel Haswell i4790 Processor

32 GB RAM - Corsair Vengenance 2133 MHz

NVidia GT650Ti Boost graphics

Dell 2410 Monitor

Audio : Realtek ALC1150

Ethernet : Intel 1218 and Intel 1211AT

Wifi : 802.11 b/g/n/ac 2.4 and 5 GHz.

 

Also after installation, when OSX starts booting, my DVD drive automatically eject but after trying several times I'm not able to insert the tray again until and unless I reset the system and boot into Windows.

 

Please help immediately so that I can enjoy new system and make full use of it.

Try to boot with the following boot switch cmpugay:

 

-v -x PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=No

 

The -v stands for verbose, which will show you the errors that are occuring

The -x stands for safe mode, which will skip loading some kexts that could mess up booting into Mac OS X

The PCIRootUID, i don't know what this means, but I have tried this switch and it made my system boot up :)

Since you have an NVIDIA card, you don't need the GraphicsEnabler, which was causing problems for me too.

 

Try that and post your errors/results here :)

Hey @sloeberGJ

 

What version of Mac OS X Mavericks are you running?

I'm having quite some difficulties upgrading to 10.9.4,

without making the system completely unbootable.

 

Did you already upgrade to the latest version and got it working?

 

By the way, even after installing the Cuda Mac drivers from NVIDIA, as
you suggested, my DisplayPort is still not signaling my Apple LED Cinema

Display. In short, my external display is not working :-)

 

Any suggestions?

 

Kind regards!

Using GraphicsEnable=No worked and I'm successful in loading  OSX.

 

I tried your suggestion and now I'm able to Boot successfully but after booting following issues encountered :

 

1. Audio is not working. My Motherboard is using ALC1150 Realtek Chipset fo Audio

2. Networking is not working and I'm not able to connect to Internet or other computers.

3. Also while booting, DVD Drive automatically ejects and can't put the tray back until booting completes.

 

Motherboard has Intel 1217 and 1218 Dual Gigabit Ethernet ports.

Try to install additional kext using the Post-Installations tools on this forum.

I don't know what the problem is with your audio/network/dvd tray, it all worked
for me and I didn't have to change any additional kexts.

 

The post installation tool can be found here:

 

http://www.hackintosh.zone/file/213-macpois0n-mavericks/

 

You can also try to find your kext in the downloads section on www.hackintosh.zone.

 

I really hope that helps you :)

 

Kind regards!

@, I can use native powermanagment from osx because i hacked my bios, you can do so too. That tool wil unlock an MSR register. so that OSX can write there. Then you dont need a patched kext, nullcpupowermanagment etc.

 

I have an nVidia Geforce Gt540M and Intel HD 3000 in my laptop but due to nVidia Optimus i can't use the Nvidia card :(.

 

I've got an Asus k53SV-SX706. You can read the full specs in the article about what to post when you make a topic (on the homescreen),

Infected,

 

I did downloaded MacPoison from the link given and then ran it on the OSX. Installation went thru but after that I could not find trace of the application to launch and it also didn't modified anything.

 

Network (both Ethernet and Wifi) and Audio is not working even after updating to v. 10.9.4.

Try to install additional kext using the Post-Installations tools on this forum.
