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

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

    • So I tried to install Mac OS X Sierra on my computer with the following specs :   - Intel Core i5 650 3.20GHZ - 12GB RAM DDR3 - 2 HDD (.1TB , 250GB ) - Nvidia Geforce 210 1GB VRAM DDR3   Everything was cool at first the installation went smoothly with no problems, after setting up everything I noticed that the graphics card has been detected by the systems but there is no acceleration and the resolution is 1024x768, I couldn’t change it   I tried a lot of kext drivers from multiple websites but no success, last kext crashes my os, I start getting black screen after the login page, and the computer restart it self immediately, so I decided to mess with the clover options to find if I can enable the graphics card from there, and WALLAA, the magic happened, I went to clover options then > Graphics Injector Menu > I checked : InjectNvidia option, and I checked : Use NVIDIA WEB Drivers   Note : I already installed Nvidia web drivers previously so you do that too before trying this method   After the restart it took longer then the usual to boot up, but once it got to the login page I noticed that the acceleration is working perfectly and the graphics has no bugs like before.   So until now everything is working fine and I’m enjoying my experience with Mac Sierra  
    • HI, I have the same issue. I have integrated Intel HD4000 and nVidia 620m. I tried with IGPEnabler, GraphicsEnabler and nv_disabled bootflags but none of them helped, it just got me additional kernel panic "AppleUSBHostPort: :disconnect: persistant enumeration failures". I also don't have option to turn off any of my graphic cards in BIOS.  Is there any solution to this issue?
