Help with Asus B85-PLUS Niresh 10.9 install




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

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'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)
