Need help with installing Mavericks on my Desktop


Hey , 

I need help installing Mavericks on my Maschine 
The datas are :


ASUS P8H61-M LE / USB 3 (Already flashed the modified bios from )

i5-2500 (Sandybridge with Intel HD 3000 but i disabled it in bios)

AMD Radeon R9 280X

8GB 1333mhz DDR3 Ram.

128 GB SSD ( Windows )

400 GB HDD splitted into 2 drives ( Data and Musik from windows )

A seperate 200 GB HDD for Mavericks .

A 32 GB USB Thumbdrive 


Used a USB Flash drive with the Mavericks.dmg from this Forum.


I Just booted up the Setup without any bootflags . Formatted the 200GB with Mac OS Journaled and named as MavericksHDD , the next step i choosed the destination of my install to my 200GB HDD and in Customize i changed the bootloader from Chameleon to Clover Standart. And i Selected Move ATI , Move Nvidia and Move Intel , because i read that the R9 280X is supported Out of the Box and i dont need any graphics kexts. After i installed it from my USB Thumbdrive , i went in my UEFI Bios and selected my 200GB drive as first boot device and saved it. So i wanted to start my new Hackintosh but after the grey apple screen the monitor wents black and some noise came out of my speakers .

I tried to boot with -v -x Graphicsenabler=no IGPenabler=Yes ( Many varieties like one time only -v and one time with -v Graphicsenabler=no and more .. )


It's not my first Hackintosh so i have some experience but for a half year i had the same configuration but insteed of the R9 280X i had an old Geforce GT 9600 from Nvidia .


Clover and the verbose mode of Macintosh recognized the R9 280x as 7970 ( R9 280x has the same chip but its a bit more overclocked xD) and my i5 2500.


Also in verbose mode after DSMOS has arrived the screen turns black but i hear some noise coming out of my speaker.


So i don't know what to do .


I hope someone can help me

So now i can boot with my R9 280X into OS X with my native resolution 1920x1080 without any kexts or something other . The issue was made from IOBluetooth ... kext so i just plugged in my Bluetooth adapter and now it worked xD . 

Under My Mac is my i5-2500 with 3,19 ghz and my 8 GB Ram and my R9 280x ( named AMD Radeon 7970-X 7mb) under system profiler my Grafiphicscard only has 7mb normally it has 3072mb. QE/CI isnt working .

    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have      
    • Hi everyone. Here are my specs MOBO :Gigabyte Z68 XP UD3 (1155) GPU : HD 6870 1gb CPU Intel i7 2600k (1155) 60gb SATA SSD   MOBO is using legacy Bios. This machine has served me well for years. I tripped a circuit breaker a few weeks ago and now it's stuck in a boot loop. I have setup a new bootable USB to reinstall but for some reason the boot loop is happening when I startup from this as well. I can manage to get to the desktop using the safe mode boot flag (-x) but after a few moments, the desktop freezes and the computer reboots. I used the 10.10.1 disc image to create the new USB stick I am not sure if this could be causing the boot problem in the USB. Should I have used the 10.10.0? At first I suspected a hardware issue but I left the computer on for two days at in the bios screen and it stayed on just fine. Hoping someone can give me a hand figuring out which boot flags can get me going again or how I can reinstall the OS. I really need to get past the freeze/reboot cycle I am in. I am almost ready to nuke this thing and install windows
    • i also have this problem if you will finde the solution please inform me right away and thank you
    • I built a Hackintosh on a GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P in 2010, and upgraded it to Sierra about 4 months ago. It's been working great until a few days ago.  The clock now is losing time, while the computer is on and running. I've been working on the computer all morning, and have had to bump it forward to the current time it 3-4x. Right now it says 9:40am, but it's really 9:47am.  I have "Set time and date automatically" set in settings and "Apple Americas/U.S. (" selected on the drop down. Deselecting it, and selecting it again, brings the clock back to the current time.  Is this a hardware issue or a software issue? Do I have to replace the CR2032 on the motherboard? If so - why? The computer is on, and running, why would it need that battery to maintain the time?
