Download the 10.9.4 combo update, from here: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1754

 

Before installing, also download this kernel: http://www.hackintoshosx.com/file/4210-amd-kernel-for-os-x-mavericks-1094-xnu1330////

Put the kernel somewhere you can easily get to from the command line.

 

Install the 10.9.4 update, and let it do it's stuff. If I remember correctly, it reboots and then installs.

 

After it's installed, you'll need to replace your kernel with the one you've just downloaded. Boot your installation media (or you may be able to boot single user mode, -s boot flag) and open up the Terminal (you have to accept conditions etc first). Overwrite the mach_kernel with your new kernel (make sure you rename the new kernel to be "mach_kernel" without quotes).

 

E.g..

mount -uw /

mv /Volumes/Mac/mach_kernel /Volumes/Mac/mach_kernel_backup

cp /Volumes/Mac/username/Downloads/kernel_name /Volumes/Mac/mach_kernel

I just tried this but the update says  "OS X Update can't be installed on this disk. This volume does not meet the requirements for this update."

 

I tried selecting the drive Mavericks was installed on, am I missing something here?

 

 

Edit- You did not link to the combo update -> http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1755

    • Hi guys, managed to make a hackintosh and everything is going great (Wifi, cpu ECT)   But it's pretty damn slow, i tried one of my favorite lightweight games to test (The Ultimate Doom) and it could barely run THAT! This is my first time and i have no idea how to get my 8570 to work.. Probably should have read a bit, eh? Lol.   And no I don't plan on using my hackintosh for gaming, but god so slow..   Thanks, help would be very appreciated. Edit: It's the dedicated version btw, and in about my mac I see "Graphics Display 3 MB" maybe the issue?  
    • Trying to boot to the installer but I get instant reboot after the following: I am using the following flag (I tried a variation - I need USBBusFix=Yes otherwise it fails even earlier): All my USB devices turn off just before it reboots, so I'm guessing it loses connection to the USB install media - but I can't work out why it's disabling all the USB's. CPU: AMD FX 8350 (8-core)
      RAM: 12GB HyperX Fury
      Motherboard: AsRock Fatal1ty 990FX Killer
      GPU: Gigabyte 4GB NVIDIA GTX 960
    • Saludos!   Tengo el mismo error (RAM a 667mhz), con una placa base ASUS (y mi cpu es el fx 6300).   Lograste solucionarlo?
    • Hi guys. Well, this is my second day of troubles, I touched everything, I installed max like 5 times in the same day, trying to figure out things and well. My Mac it display my graphic card on the #About this Mac tab With 2047MB ( So I guess all is right ) I installed the latest nvida drivers and on clover I activated the NvidaWeb. The problem is the resolution. Max resolution allowed is 1280 x 1024 and 800 x 600. I used to boot with nvd_drv 1 with nvd dry 0, I used to boot with all that things, and without them.  BUT No way to fix the resolution. Someone knows what-s going wrong and how can I fix it? Bdw im using iMac14,2 and OS X Sierra 10.12.3 Im connecting to the screen with DVI adapter. ( Maybe that causes the problem ) But it shows Im running 2047 MB so... idk why I can't change resolution. Thanks! ================================= SOLVED EDIT: Hi guys, in Display Resolution, I just set it in "Default for display" and after that pressing "THE WINDOWS BUTTON KEY, IN MY CASE, IDK WHAT KEY IS THAT IN MAC KEYBOARD, I THINK THE CONTROL ONE OR IDK" PRESSING that key I selected Scaled, and it appears more options and resolutions. There is a video on youtube about that called "Mac OS X Display Resolution" If someone has the same trouble.
