Help with Asus B85-PLUS Niresh 10.9 install

Recommended Posts



I am having issues installing Mavericks on my new custom built PC.


System specs: (I hope this is enough)


UEFI Motherboard: Asus B85-PLUS

CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K 3.50GHz (Haswell)

GPU: (Built in) Intel HD Graphics 4600

HDD: Western Digital Scorpio Blue 120 GB

RAM 2x 4GB Corsair Vengeance


Installation media:


Niresh Mavericks 10.9.iso burned to a USB flash drive


The problem:


When I launch my installation media from my USB, a black screen appears and there is a single grey underscore flashing in the top left corner. I waited on this screen for 10 mins, nothing happens. I cant do anything, no ctrl + alt + del to restart, nothing.


Thanks in advance for your time

I'm sorry, I didn't know that burning an iso to a USB would cause an issue. Thanks for your suggestion, I'm now downloading OSX-Mavericks.dmg


While this topic is still open, could you suggest any kexts to install after installation?




Also, I have windows 7 installed on another HDD, when I plug this in, will it work as a multiboot automatically? Or do I have to set it up? (I dont have another SATA cable at the moment)

Yes it will not boot (win 7), but what you have to do it throw your win 7 repair disk, and repair the win 7 (automatic repair). And it should boot fine.


Locking this thread. Feel free to create new if you run into and issue again.


One more thing, as you have a Haswell processor so if your USB reboots in loop, use boot flag xpcm-free.

    • I have working audio, graphics and network on this 10.13  Now store has sent me "security update" which I believe is 10.13.3.  Has anyone done this via store? What do I need to do before I install it? I have issues loading EFI so have to always manually mount it (Clover configurator and EFI mounter both fail) but using terminal and command "open /efi" I am able to mount and make changes to my config.plist too.   
    • Hi guys, I try to install Mac OS X Yosemite on my computer, but... i get stuck at the logo (when i boot it) + i see a bar, who won't charge. Can you give me a solution?   Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual  CPU  E2180  @ 2.00GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.0GHz Memory: 2048MB RAM    User DPI Setting: Using System DPI  System DPI Setting: 96 DPI (100 percent) Display Card name: NVIDIA GeForce 210  Manufacturer: NVIDIA Chip type: GeForce 210 DAC type: Integrated RAMDAC  
    • Just to Add I used My windows machine with TransMac to wipe and build the install (including USB). I only used the clover installer I forgot that it could switch to chameleon.
