  1. Your method works perfectly. You must have put some serious work into getting these steps down. I did have to workout some of the steps, but outstanding work. Below may be just a little clearer for newbies like me. Requisites Network driver for E2200(It's E2205 on motherboard), this i didn't find here and cannot link to it, do a search on google for e2200 Mac OS X kext. 10.9.5 Combo Update, download from here. Chameleon Wizard, download from here (Find the latest, was 4.4.1 when writing this). Base installation On first boot with install DVD (Niresh Mavericks 10.9 on DVD or Thumbdrive) add following as boot parameters. xpcm-free -v Before hitting Install make sure you add following kexts under Customize. Chipset Drivers (Kexts)/Chipset Drivers/IOATAFamily On first reboot add following parameters to Niresh boot menu. GraphicsEnabler=No PciRoot=1 -x On the "How Do You Connect" screen choose "My computer does not connect to the internet", where adding drivers for this later. On first login in "Safe Boot" edit org.chameleon.Boot.plist under /Extra folder and add following. <key>PciRoot</key> <string>1</string> Let Permission and Cache rebuilds finish. Install network kext with the Kext Wizard, use the Debug kext. Reboot and system should start as normal. Run the Chameleon Wizard and update kernel to latest(No test versions), update any modules if there are updates. 10.9.5 Combo update 10.9.5 - This one is tricky, updates kernel and renders system useless unless done as below. Run Terminal window and the login as root user by entering following command. sudo -i Make a copy of the kernel. cp /Volumes/NameOf YourSystemVol/mach_kernel /Volumes/NameOf YourSystemVol/mach_kernel_ok Make a copy of Extensions folder. cp -R /Volumes/NameOf YourSystemVol/System/Library/Extensions /Volumes/NameOf YourSystemVol/System/Library/Extensions_ok Install update and upon reboot, insert installation DVD with following boot parameters. xpcm-free -v Go through the first installation step without doing anything, open up Terminal via the menu. Run following commands to restore working kernel and extensions. mv /Volumes/NameOf YourSystemVol/mach_kernel /Volumes/NameOf YourSystemVol/mach_kernel_bad cp /Volumes/NameOf YourSystemVol/mach_kernel_ok /Volumes/NameOf YourSystemVol/mach_kernel mv /Volumes/NameOf YourSystemVol/System/Library/Extensions /Volumes/NameOf YourSystemVol/System/Library/Extensions_bad mv /Volumes/NameOf YourSystemVol/System/Library/Extensions_ok /Volumes/NameOf YourSystemVol/System/Library/Extensions Remove DVD and restart system, add following as boot parameters. -x -v -f (I didn't have to do this--but I didn't see where I would do this to be honest) Use Kext Wizard to repair permissions and rebuild cache. Restart again and you should be up and running. Now you can remove the bad kernel and extensions folder, they are not needed anymore. Extra fun things to know Disable .DS_Store files poluting network drives. Open Terminal and run following command. defaults write DSDontWriteNetworkStores true
  2. I have some questions about this process. In the base installation section you say "install DVD" do you mean the Niresh 10.9 Mavericks? And if so does it have to be a DVD because I have a thumb drive which I use. And in the 10.9.5 Update section you again mention a DVD but is this the same DVD as in the first section? Or the 10.9.5 update burned to DVD. Can you clarify these things?
