Installs OK, but does not boot! Niresh, help please :)


Hello everyone,


I'm trying to install 10.9.0 OSX Mavericks and I've got the

following hardware:


CPU: Intel Core i7 3840QM

Chipset: Intel HM77 (Ivy Bridge)

VGA: NVIDIA Geforce 680M (2x)

RAM: 16 GB Corsair Vengeance


I have reinstalled like 7 times now, but nothing seems to work.

I've already tried different boot options (-x -v -s -f USBHubFix=Yes etc).


My last attempt seems to be the best one, but it still hangs at the
AppleIntelCPUManagement.kext. I've already tried installing with the
AppleNull...kext, but no luck either.


Can someone please tell me what options I should choose when installing
Mavericks on my hardware? Is there any link which explains what options
I should choose? Maybe @ himself, can help me?


Thanks in advance!


Grtz from Belgium!

Update, I've removed the kext file, as found a similar topic on this forum:


cd /Volumes/<MAC OS X VOLUME>/System/Library/Extensions

rm -rf AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext


The booting process continues now, but it seems that it stops booting at the
Apple logo. It's in verbose mode, but I'm unable to see the errors that hang
the system, what should I do next?

Than its hanging on your graphics. Read this article and find a fiiting kext for your graphics.

Fix DSMOS has arrived

I think you're spot on. I searched on Google and I've found the following

boot switch, which allowed me to boot into Mac OS X Mavericks as the

"root" user:


boot: -v -x PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=No


Everything seems to be working now, in safe mode. I'll try booting

into normal mode now, with the following switch:


boot: -v PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=No


I'll let you guys know how it went! Where can I find the correct kext file for

my 680Ms?


Kind regards!

Ok, once again, I think I found it myself:


Now I only need to know 3 more things:


- How to make the "GraphicsEnabler=No" the default boot switch?


- Can I use the Mac OS X updates?

Answer: Yes, you can try to install them, and... (see below)

- If yes, what should I backup before updating?

Answer: It seems that you have to backup mach_kernel from the root /.and recover it when updating messes it up


Kind regards!

More users should be like you, make a topic and answer it themselfs. :D


BTW you are using the right kext's, your card is natively supported :P. You could download the nvidia cuda drivers from nvidia, that will make performance even better.

I recently installed Niresh's Hackintosh on my system.


This was installed on separate HDD but after installation, it started booting but after Apple logi appeared, the next screen was blank Whitish Grey and system did not moved further.


My System config is :


Asus Z97 Deluxe Mother Board

Intel Haswell i4790 Processor

32 GB RAM - Corsair Vengenance 2133 MHz

NVidia GT650Ti Boost graphics

Dell 2410 Monitor

Audio : Realtek ALC1150

Ethernet : Intel 1218 and Intel 1211AT

Wifi : 802.11 b/g/n/ac 2.4 and 5 GHz.


Also after installation, when OSX starts booting, my DVD drive automatically eject but after trying several times I'm not able to insert the tray again until and unless I reset the system and boot into Windows.


Please help immediately so that I can enjoy new system and make full use of it.
