Niresh Mavericks on Bay trail, is it possible ?

Recommended Posts



I want to buy an Asus T100TA transformer with Intel Bay Trail processor (newest ATOM).


Do you thinks it is possible to install Mavericks on it ?


I know Niresh's Mavericks usb image support Atom (with a specific kernel) but i don't know if it supports new Bay Trail Atom...


Sorry for my english faults if there is any, i'm French ;-)

To answer your question, possibly. There is no definite answer, it really depends on the hardware that comes along with your bay-trail processor. It might take a bit of tinkering, but the AsusT100 series should be compatible in general.

I'm sorry, I completely forgot about this. The answer is no, it does not work. First generation bay trail hardware such as the asus t100 and the tablet I got are accompanied by 32-bit UEFI firmware, and while 64-bit Linux is fine with this, Mac OS X (only 64-bit nowadays) and Windows-64 cannot be convinced to run on such firmware. Not to mention the fact that Gen7 (and by extension, Gen8) Intel HD graphics from the ATOM family of processors are not compatible with OS X, making any attempts at hardware acceleration futile, although this may change in the future. Also, the myriad of ever changing hardware in bay-cherry trail devices makes any drivers created much less likely to be compatible with other devices that may have the same SOC but slightly different internals.

    • I have a laptop with an Intel Core i5(6th gen) 6198DU CPU with Intel HD 510 graphics and Nvidia 920mx discrete graphics. other specifications include: 8gb ram 120gb ssd+ 1tb hdd Is this build compatible high sierra 
    • Hi, I already solved it. just mount the dmg image to a USB 3.0 memory and apply what Niresh answered in this link I hope you work
    • I am also having this problem  I use Chameleon as installed by the Niresh installer.  I don't see a preboot partition.  Where would it get created? Where would I find the installer logs to upload? OK so I've found the logs and they contain this... Jan 22 09:22:22 Mac-Pro OSInstaller[565]: PackageKit: PKUpdatePrebootInstallOperation skipping disk because it is not apfs. My boot disk is an SSD and I did not select any option to convert it when installing High Sierra so I don't know why it wasn't converted by the install.   If I could figure out how to attach the install log I would and I'd ask if converting to APFS would fix the problem.  Any ideas how to attach a log?    
    • Well thanks guys for help or say no help any way i fix everything by installing  High sierra everything works including hdmi audio also. So admin/moderator can you close/move this post?
