Download the 10.9.4 combo update, from here: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1754

 

Before installing, also download this kernel: http://www.hackintoshosx.com/file/4210-amd-kernel-for-os-x-mavericks-1094-xnu1330////

Put the kernel somewhere you can easily get to from the command line.

 

Install the 10.9.4 update, and let it do it's stuff. If I remember correctly, it reboots and then installs.

 

After it's installed, you'll need to replace your kernel with the one you've just downloaded. Boot your installation media (or you may be able to boot single user mode, -s boot flag) and open up the Terminal (you have to accept conditions etc first). Overwrite the mach_kernel with your new kernel (make sure you rename the new kernel to be "mach_kernel" without quotes).

 

E.g..

mount -uw /

mv /Volumes/Mac/mach_kernel /Volumes/Mac/mach_kernel_backup

cp /Volumes/Mac/username/Downloads/kernel_name /Volumes/Mac/mach_kernel

I just tried this but the update says  "OS X Update can't be installed on this disk. This volume does not meet the requirements for this update."

 

I tried selecting the drive Mavericks was installed on, am I missing something here?

 

 

Edit- You did not link to the combo update -> http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1755
