(Working) Asus M3N78 SE (AMD + ATI)

Recommended Posts

I installed OS X Mavericks using Niresh Mavericks for Intel and AMD (USB installation):


Motherboard: Asus M3N78SE

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 9550

GPU: ATI Radeon HD 4850

RAM: 4GB DDR2 800 MHz

Mouse/KB: Genius SlimStar i815 (wireless)

Audio: On board

Ethernet: Realtek 8139



- Start USB installer with options: amdfx -v USBBusFix=Yes ahcidisk=1 debug=8

- Install Mavericks build with no changes in default options, keep everything as it is

- Restart to USB once again with the same options

- Open Terminal and delete AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext from /System/Library/Extensions/


In Terminal type:


  1. cd /Volumes/name-of-your-mavericks-partition/System/Library/Extensions - press ENTER
  2. rm -rf AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext - press ENTER
  3. reboot - press ENTER



- After the system reboots, enter your Mavericks installation with options: GraphicsEnabler=No

- Complete the installation and wait until the notifications tell you that the system is ready

- Find and download QE_CI Exotic Patch Mavericks GM and copy the two files from the downloaded folder to /System/Library/Extensions/ - replace the original files

- Open Kext Wizard and repair permissions/rebuild cache for /System/Library/Extensions/

- Reboot with no options this time, everything should work perfectly fine!


What works:

Everything works except logging in to iCloud/iMessage, full QE/CI, graphics card is correctly recognised, mouse and keyboard (wireless combo) work, network works fine...



- cannot login to iCloud/iMessage, none of the advices from the internet work

    • I have a laptop with an Intel Core i5(6th gen) 6198DU CPU with Intel HD 510 graphics and Nvidia 920mx discrete graphics. other specifications include: 8gb ram 120gb ssd+ 1tb hdd Is this build compatible high sierra 
    • Hi, I already solved it. just mount the dmg image to a USB 3.0 memory and apply what Niresh answered in this link I hope you work
    • I am also having this problem  I use Chameleon as installed by the Niresh installer.  I don't see a preboot partition.  Where would it get created? Where would I find the installer logs to upload? OK so I've found the logs and they contain this... Jan 22 09:22:22 Mac-Pro OSInstaller[565]: PackageKit: PKUpdatePrebootInstallOperation skipping disk because it is not apfs. My boot disk is an SSD and I did not select any option to convert it when installing High Sierra so I don't know why it wasn't converted by the install.   If I could figure out how to attach the install log I would and I'd ask if converting to APFS would fix the problem.  Any ideas how to attach a log?    
    • Well thanks guys for help or say no help any way i fix everything by installing  High sierra everything works including hdmi audio also. So admin/moderator can you close/move this post?
