How to install Mavericks WITHOUT AHCI?

Recommended Posts

I have iAtkos L2 (Lion) installed on my hackintosh and working fine. I downloaded Niresh's Mavericks as he said this will work without AHCI in one of his posts. I can install it but then it gets stuck on the apple logo. If I use IOATAFamily.kext it gives me a kernel panic.

 

In iAtkos L2 there was a kext clearly named "No AHCI" which I selected while installing and everything installed fine. Why is Niresh's one so complicated? Please provide clear instructions.

 

This is my ONLY problem. I don't have AHCI. Niresh said I can install mavericks without AHCI. How? I've searched this forum for people with similar problem but you people just seem to steer away from this AHCI thing?

 

How do I install mavericks WITHOUT AHCI (Niresh said it can be done)?? This is getting really annoying man

try to install it if you won't see your HDD in Disk Utility then you need to enable Ahci , lastest or some manufacturer already has it enabled ...

I can select my partition and everything man. It installs fine. Then  it gets stuck on the apple logo. I booted in verbose mode and it gets stuck at WAITING FOR DSMOS...the installation is very quick by the way, about 15 minutes and at the time of install there's not much visible hard drive activity...what is wrong?
