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

.iso is for DVD.


Please read guide before you start.


Download .dmg and prepare your USB.

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.

    • Hello everyone,  I'm trying to install High Sierra (with AMD support) on my AMD 4500m Lenovo G505s laptop. When booting from Clover in EFI with i get some really fast screen log then the pc reboots. Now, i know there isn't a way you could help me without some info/logs, unless i'm missing a major malfunction known on these kind of laptops, so, do you know a way i could prevent it from rebooting in order to at least understand what is causing this problem? Do you think even trying to put OSX on this laptop is worth it? Thank you.
    • Hello, i am trying to install High Sierra on my ASUS X75VB but i am getting multiple errors with the ACPI.
      I believe it is CPU related?

      Mainboard: HM76 (X75VB SOCKET 0)
      CPU: Intel Core i5 3320m (Not the original CPU of this laptop!)
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000 & NVIDIA 2GB Geforce 740M
      RAM: DDR3 8GB
      Storage: 120GB SSD (SATA-2)

      I have used the DSDT.aml & SSDT.aml from the following resource:

      My config.plst can be found here:

      Thanks in advance!

    • I have Yosemite Zone working on Virtualbox fine.  After downloading High Sierra Zone there is only a dmg and no ISO.  I tried converting the dmg with hdiutil but it goes to 8GB and I get "no bootable media" in Virtualbox.  Has anyone been able to do this yet?
