Bootloader not installed + kernal panic

Question

Hello,

 

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):

-v

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.

Yes, sure. Download Slytherin or Multibeast and install Chameleon or Chimera.

 

I prefer Chimera over Chameleon as its 5 sec faster and less overhead, In SSD it should be faster.

 

Report back so mod can mark it solved.

I dont have any internet access for my PC at the moment, so I have been using a network bridge from my laptop, via ethernet to my PC. But mavericks dosent recognise my ethernet cable. So I downloaded chimera on my laptop (Windows 7) and copied it to another usb in transmac, then installed it on my PC, rebooted and it went straight to the bios.

 

My outstanding problems:

 

I cant boot without installer USB

I cant use ethernet

I cant install a bootloader

I have to use safemode every time I boot

 

What would be the steps to fix these issues?

 

Thanks

Your straight solution :

 

Download Slytherin/Multibeast into any pc (no matter its your or in cyber cafe or friends).

 

Put it in a USB Pen drive.

 

Boot OSX using USB-Installer.

 

Insert USB having Multibeast/Slytherin.

 

Run it and install BootLoader.

I downloaded Slytherin, ran it, installed Realtek 8xx, chameleon bootloader, NullCPUPowerManagement and tried to reboot. No bootloader appeared, so I used the installer. I didnt enter any boot flags this time because I was using the null cpu kext. I still got the no HPETs panic, but ethernet was working (it said in verbose mode). I then rebooted with the flags you told me before -x -f -F -v but I still got the HPET panic, I am now going to re install the whole OS, and choose the alternate bootloader on the customize menu.
