Bootloader not installed + kernal panic

Recommended Posts



I successfully installed Niresh Mavericks from USB



System specs:


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


When the PC rebooted after install, it loaded the Niresh bootloader, where you choose to install from. I removed my USB and restarted my PC, it instantly booted into my bios. So I re inserted my USB and rebooted. At the Niresh bootloader, I chose the HDD I just installed Mavericks to. I used the bootflag below (I have Haswell):


Mac started to boot, and I recieved a kernal panic.


Here is the first line (the problem) of what I see on screen

panic(cpu 2 caller 0xffffff7f81581cc9): No HPETs available... CPU(s) configured incorrectly

So I know my CPU is configured incorrectly, and I have to change this in the BIOS, but what exactly am I looking for? And where would I find it?


Also, how would I go about installing my bootloader properly (I just left the settings the same, apart from the SSD setting, I dont have one, so I unticked it, during installation)?


Thanks for your help.

Oh man, I had told you to use boot flag xpcm-free if you get reboot or KP.


Follow suggestions too, they work. Believe me ;)

I already tried using xpcm-free when booting after installation, it says "Loading kernal /xpcm-free" and then "Cant find /xpcm-free". I did use that flag during installation and it worked a treat

Boot using USB using -x -f -F -v.


If it doesnt solve your issue, then there is already a thread for HPET, see that.
