Mavericks AMD Help - OS X Mavericks 10.9 - Hackintosh Zone Mavericks AMD Help Jump to content


Hello all. Trying to install mavericks on an AMD machine.

M2n68-am plus mobo

GeForce 7025 chipset

Phenom x3 processor

GeForce 8800 gt graphics

I have mavericks in a vm for prep. I am stuck at waiting for root device. There is no option in bios for ahci, however I've read it isn't necessary. Can anyone tell me the proper boot flags needed?

Also is it possible to install mavericks on an external usb hard drive. I would like to try dual booting my toshiba qosmio x75 but can't risk windows at the moment. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance!

On my bios there is no option to set SATA mode to AHCI. It's before install. I've booted with amd -v, amd64 -v, and both kernels plus -x -v and it hangs at waiting for root device. I've seen videos of successful installs but they don't provide much help. When I get home I'm going to try turning usb legacy support on and off to see if that helps at all. When booting with USBBusFix=Yes I get a different error that I will post later.
