How to Fix Mavericks not booting after the 10.9.2 Update

Question

Devonic    129

DISCLAIMER : The 10.9.2 update has broken a lot of installations of Niresh's Mavericks distro due to a new version of Darwin. The steps described below are a generic solution as discussed on various parts of the forums. This is just a re-organized and structured version of the fix. This may not necessarily work for all OSX installs. So instead of only using the kexts packaged by Niresh, please backup any custom kernels or even better your entire extensions folder.

 

Stuff you need :

1) A 1 GB USB (any size actually)
2) The Niresh Mavericks Installer USB
3) An already working mavericks install (optional)


If you are stuck with a non-booting Installation of OSX Mavericks :
1) Head over to Windows and download Transmac.
2) Download the PCI Config Kexts from here.
3) Plug in your 1 GB USB and format it to Mac OSX Extended Journaled by right clicking and selecting "Format Disk for Mac"
4) Make a folder named Extensions in the root directory of the USB in Transmac (+HFS Volumes > Right click on White Space > Make New Folder)
5) Copy the kexts (not the folder, the kexts ! ) you downloaded into the Extensions folder.
6) Rename your 1 GB USB to FIX. (If you can't do this using Transmac, format the USB using the Niresh Installer and rename to
FIX. Then proceed with Transmac steps (without       formatting of course)
You're done for the windows part !

Now boot into the Niresh Mavericks Installer

1) Plug in your 1 GB USB after the Welcome Screen has appeared
2) Go to disk utility and mount your FIX usb (Right Click the USB > Mount)
3) Open Terminal and type the following :

ditto -V /Volumes/FIX/Extensions/*there is a single space here*/Volumes/*THE NAME OF YOUR HARD DRIVE*/System/Library/Extensions/
chown -R root:wheel /Volumes/*THE NAME OF YOUR HARD DRIVE*/System/Library/Extensions/
chmod -R 755 /Volumes/*THE NAME OF YOUR HARD DRIVE*/System/Library/Extensions/

2) Exit out of Terminal and Reboot
3) Your Hackintosh should finally boot into OSX 10.9.2  :)

If you have a Working Mavericks Installation before hand:

1) Just copy the PCI Fix kexts into a USB Formatted using Disk Utility into Mac OSX Extended Journaled and repeat the same steps from step number 6.

2) Additionally backup the Extensions folder and your Kernels to the USB with a different directory name.

Cheers  :D

I went exactly as it was described but it just laughed at me restarted then taunted me some more. I'm just going to wait for NERESH to update to 9.2. I have more concerns then getting 9.2 installed. Like the Nvidia kext installed. HDMI works flawlessly but my main display never works when I switch to the Nvidia from Apple. I restart with HDMI support and no main Display support. I have a 3D Display so I think I'm just fawked.

Hi everybody and sory if my english is not so good.

I have successfully updated from 10.9.0 to 10.9.2 and fully functional with this configuration:

 

AMD Phenom II x4 925

Gigabyte ma770t-ud3

8GB 1600 DDR3

Gainward GT240

sata WD 320G with windows 8 installed

sata WD 1T with Mavericks

 

I backed up only 3 kexts from 10.9.0 : System.kext, AppleMatch.kext, Sandbox.kext from System/Library/Extensions

and put them together with "match_kernel" in one folder on desktop, after that i installed combo update 10.9.2 and rebooted into windows 8. With program "mac drive" from windows i go to mac partition and put this 3 kext that i backed up on desktop in 

System/Library/Extensions with replacing files, and mach_kernel in root of drive alsou with replacing file. I rebooted again but this time from my USB flash with Nireshs Mavericks installation, started disk utility and repaired permissions for mac drive.

Reboot again this time from mac partition and with flags -x -v. When i get to desktop just run kext wizard to repair permissions and after that rebooted normal in 10.9.2 with everything working perfectly

Kernel "AMD 10.9/10.9.1/10.9.2 kernel, with SSE3 and opemu Version R6" was not so good for my spec, i had some glitches so i used this kernel that works perfectly for me:    http://speedy.sh/fyQ3k/mach-kernel

 

Hope this help somebody

The option doesn't come up with my main display. It being connected to my HDTV though 3D scales down to 60Hz. My laptop display doesn't show up with Nvidia kext active. With Apple display active. It doesn't show any refresh rate at all, just that I set it at a HD resolution. Wish it were that simple.. I may just need to get another display.. thanks Devonic for trying to help me out. not many people would go out there way to. witch in my book makes you awesome! Its a up-hill battle I'll eventually figure out..

@Devonic Thanks for this.

 

Can you please explain what the purpose of this is: https://www.hackintosh.zone/file/94-amd-10910911092-kernel-with-sse3-and-opemu/ ?

 

Also there is this one which was uploaded more recently, but does not say it supports 10.9.2: https://www.hackintosh.zone/file/148-amd-kernel-for-os-x/

 

Do you think I should install these kernels before proceeding with the 10.9.1 -> 10.9.2 update? I use AMD FX-8320. Thank you.

 

edit: OK, I just noticed what grujev posted about the kernels. They said the first one that I linked to was buggy for them. The other one I linked to is newer, but much smaller file size than "mach kernel" that was posted by grujev.

 

I just found an AMD kernel for "10.9.*" on another site uploaded as recent as March 9th, 2014 --- but explicitly says in the file description not to update to 10.9.2  :o

@iLL It's pretty self explanatory, it's an AMD Kernel (there are many variations floating around). The basic core instruction of the guide is Backup your kexts, backup your custom kernels and restore using the installer terminal. Since many did not know the terminal commands, i just made a guide. 

Yes install and backup the kernels and update.

I don't exactly advocate the update as many users have problem since Darwin is updated, but if you want to take a plunge go for it.

    • Saludos!   Tengo el mismo error (RAM a 667mhz), con una placa base ASUS (y mi cpu es el fx 6300).   Lograste solucionarlo?
    • Hi guys. Well, this is my second day of troubles, I touched everything, I installed max like 5 times in the same day, trying to figure out things and well. My Mac it display my graphic card on the #About this Mac tab With 2047MB ( So I guess all is right ) I installed the latest nvida drivers and on clover I activated the NvidaWeb. The problem is the resolution. Max resolution allowed is 1280 x 1024 and 800 x 600. I used to boot with nvd_drv 1 with nvd dry 0, I used to boot with all that things, and without them.  BUT No way to fix the resolution. Someone knows what-s going wrong and how can I fix it? Bdw im using iMac14,2 and OS X Sierra 10.12.3 Im connecting to the screen with DVI adapter. ( Maybe that causes the problem ) But it shows Im running 2047 MB so... idk why I can't change resolution. Thanks! ================================= SOLVED EDIT: Hi guys, in Display Resolution, I just set it in "Default for display" and after that pressing "THE WINDOWS BUTTON KEY, IN MY CASE, IDK WHAT KEY IS THAT IN MAC KEYBOARD, I THINK THE CONTROL ONE OR IDK" PRESSING that key I selected Scaled, and it appears more options and resolutions. There is a video on youtube about that called "Mac OS X Display Resolution" If someone has the same trouble.
