Problem Occurred with Niresh's Mavericks Installer
2 2

Question

Hey guys.

 

So today, I checked out Niresh's Mavericks (w/ AMD support) and followed the "How to install OS X Mavericks on your PC with Niresh" and encountered an error literally just before the installation completed. Here are some screenshots taken from my S4:

My specs are:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 (1090T BE) (Which Niresh confirmed that AMD Phenom II X6 1090T is fully compatible with his Mavericks distro)

Motherboard: ASUS Crosshair IV Formula AM3

RAM: 4GB

 

I installed the Niresh Mavericks Installer (.dmg) on a virtual machine of OS X Mountain Lion's Disk Utility (not on Windows'). All of that worked fine. I was able to boot into the installer on my 32GB SanDisk USB stick and was installing Mavericks on a portable USB 3.0 (Western Digital Passport) hard disk.

 

Please help!

Hello, I am also unable to install on my laptop. It installs up until around 10 minutes remaining, then says it is unable to install. It also mentions an error in the log. Not so sure what it is, I have a really bad memory haha. I am installing to a USB 3.0 Western Digital Passport 1 TB external hard drive. My specs are:Asus X53U laptopAMD C-60 APU with Radeon HD 6290 integrated Graphics4 GB RAM

post a pic of exact error ?>??

 

Well it's not exactly an error that appears, it's just when I try to start the booting after installation (it completed the installation apparently according to some people on InsanelyMac) I don't get any boot screen or menu to type in any flags...it's just a black screen with a white "_" at the top left of the screen and that's all that happens...so I'm assuming it won't boot at all. :(

This is not a virtual machine, Deepak. I have Mountain Lion running on VMWare fine, just trying to install Niresh Mavericks on a USB 3.0 500GB portable Hard Drive is the problem.

 

When I went through the Niresh Mavericks installer, it completed successfully and rebooted this time around...but then it crashes and fails after this screen:

I am unsure how to actually describe what happens... it comes up with a loading bar under the Apple logo after the above screen then stops and my screen goes black and says "No HDMI signal input" and then absolutely nothing happens unless I manually reboot the system. (this is an AMD Phenom II X6 CPU PC with an NVIDIA GeForce 8 series Graphics Card) I am assuming this is a kernel panic but it doesn't actually show the kernel panic at all.

So now when I attempt to boot, I enter my Boot Manager, select my USB stick which Niresh USB Installer in installed on and then I select my hard disk with which I installed OS X... I boot with the following flags:

  • [*]-v [*]-x [*]-f [*]amd63 (not found)

I've tried (all the above):

  • [*]npci=0x2000 [*]GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No (both)

I don't know what else to try without just giving up. :( Which ever I try now I get "OS X Mavericks cannot be verified successfully" then "CPU halted" and it shuts my system down.

try these flags arch=x86_64  or amd64 or amd  -v -f -x 

 

"amd64 / amd" just returns saying "not found". I've tried -v -f -x and I still get "CPU halted". :( Tried arch=x86_64 also.
