Can't Boot USB Mavericks Installer

Recommended Posts

Hello, i downloaded the Niresh's Mavericks Installer, i choose the .iso available on, i thought i would choose the .iso so i could work with it on Windows, and not have to worry about converting it from DMG, or anything else. I used Mac to create the USB Installer to begin with, i used the guide on this site, couldn't get the USB flash drive to boot though, i would choose my USB flash drive, it would start to load it i think, then it would just go to the start windows normally screen. I cannot get it to boot the USB for my life, next i tried using the windows program, Win32 Disk Imager, got everything loaded on the usb flash drive, doesn't boot, does exactly as before where itll just load windows. I cannot figure it out, i tried to boot using the USB on two different computers, i tired using both windows and mac to create the usb installer, the only thing i can think of is that i am using the .ISO and not the .DMG, does that make a difference, i know with Lion and Snow leopard when i would have a boot loader problem, it was as simple as installing Chameleon bootloader, but it wont let me do that since it has no free space on the flash drive(its actually only taking up the space the Mavericks DVD needs, the other space on the flash drive is unused space that i have no access too. Cause i know i have a big enough flash drive its 16GB)  Oh and the other thing i noticed, is when i am putting the Mavericks installer on the usb, it changes it from GUID, or MBR, to Apple Partitioning Disk or something. Is that what is causing it to not boot?

I got it working, downloaded the .dmg instead, maybe the .iso I downloaded got corrupted. But it's working now. How do I delete this post?

@Bela you can see the Bootloaderscreen, or not?

@Genie, what graphics card do you have? The HD2500 in your CPU is only tricky supported in OSX.. and it is not stable...

    • Hi, I have a HP G61-415ES with this configuration:
      Intel Pentium T4300 Dual Core 4GB RAM NVIDIA GeForce G 103M My Wifi card is AR5B95 (aka. 9285), and yes: works well with Windows, isn't broken. The thing is, I succesfully installed Niresh 10.8.5 and works perfect, but I tried and tried to get WiFi conection (no Wifi icon on status bar, no Wifi on Network settings)
      I tried installing io80211family.kext, RehabMan-Atheros, toledaARPT.kext and nothing. No icon, no settings... Also I read something about patch DSDT but I don't get nothing clear about how to use or how to patch, all guides are too complex for a person that don't have knowledge of that things. Also a lot of files fo download are missing and a lot of links to get reference are broken, and that increase the complexity of the problem.
      I have a PowerMac G5 MOD working very well, but obviosly I made with the ¨Buyer's Guide¨ and I didn't got any major trouble, but with this laptop it's guiving me headache
      I don't know what to do now, I'm reinstalling again 10.8.5 but I don't have more ideas.
