  1. OS X Maverick on an older Macbook

    What are your exact specs? How much RAM do you have? If it's an early 2006 (Core Duo) model it will likely not run. If it's a late 2006 (Core 2 Duo), from what I've gathered, should be doable as it is 64-bit. I installed Mountain Lion (10.7) on my late 2006 Macbook using MLPostFactor method and it runs perfectly. Check your requirements, if it's a Macbook 2,x (mine's a 2,1) should run fine. You could try it, if it does Mountain Lion maybe it could do Mavericks: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1325709 This video guide was also helpful: - Note: If you use this, you'll need to tinker with Disk Utility after installation, because it won't let you resize normally. Let me know if you need help with this. Haven't had much luck finding a method for Mavericks 10.9, though I did find this guide for Yosemite 10.10. I'll try it and report back. - http://networkdisconnected.blogspot.com/2014/07/run-os-x-1010-yosemite-on-old.html Also, when googling stuff for your macbook, I suggest you use " -pro " after last word so it eliminates results for Macbook Pro models (which seem to constitute the majority of google hits). Good luck!
  2. Nvidia 750Ti Driver for 10.9.3

    @mohansc when is it freezing? what cable are you using? I may be able to help, please post your specs and a screenshot/picture of the part where it freezes in verbose mode (boot with -v, take picture when it stops). I have the same graphics card and I had a lot of trouble installing until I checked a few other options under Customize, before installation. It worked perfectly, except I can't boot using an installed bootloader, only directly from Niresh's USB. I don't even use any bootflags, but I am stuck on 1024x768 resolution. I'm using a DVI-D cable, as HDMI did not work. Hopefully @knassez lane is right and they'll support Maxwell architecture graphics card soon. -- My Rig: - CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 Black Edition 965 - Mobo: Gigabyte GA-970A-D3 (Rev 1.4) - GPU: EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB - SSD: Kingston HyperX 3k SH103S3/240G - RAM: 8GB Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 - Power Supply: 500W Corsair CX500 - Tower: NZXT Guardian 921
  3. Help! Stuck at "flow_divert_kctl_disconnect (0):"

    Latasha, may I ask what is your GPU? I finally got my build to work after checking a few other options under the installation customization option, but I'm only able to boot directly from the Niresh USB, and only on 1024x768. Don't need any boot flags whatsoever though. The problem with the graphics is that apparently there are no kexts/drivers for new Nvidia "Maxwell" architecture graphics cards, like my GTX 750ti, for mac - not yet anyway. I'll try the nvidia web drivers solution proposed in other forums, but doubt it will work. Can anyone confirm the Maxwell GPU thing? Thanks!
  4. Hi. So, after installation I keep getting stuck at: "flow_divert_kctl_disconnect (0):" Any ideas? Tried several boot flags combinations, none seem to work. Can't attach screen shot, file too large, but you can find it in my first post if necessary. Thanks in advance.

  5. Help! Stuck at "flow_divert_kctl_disconnect (0):"

    It's doable, I've done it a few times, just don't know what's going wrong now. Probably the motherboard, I can't find much on that specific model though. Did you try any other distro? I'm about to try Mountain Lion.
  6. Hi, first time poster here but been a follower for a while. So, I've been messing with Mavericks for some time now. I was able to install it a couple of times before (using "amd64 -v" flags) alongside windows/linux on an SSD. It worked fine, except I tried to update it and had problems, and eventually gave up on the whole project for a while. It should probably be mentioned that at the time I was using an EVGA Nvidia 9800 GT as my gpu, and it's the only component I have since changed. Recently, in preparation for the release of Watch Dogs, I upgraded to a GTX 750 TI and decided to have another go at building a hackintosh, but I'm not able to do it anymore. Now, after each installation, on the first boot I get stuck at "flow_divert_kctl_disconnect (0): disconnecting group 1", and I tried to boot with and without the flash drive, both bootloaders included in the installation customization options, and several boot flags. In non-verbose mode, sometimes I get the apple logo screen frozen, and sometimes there's that additional "stop sign" thingy. I looked this up extensively and there is very very little save for a couple of suggestions for boot flags, of which I tried many combinations: npcis, graphic enablers, rootuids, archs and all those hyphenated consonants, if you pardon my newbness. In BIOS, I changed the controller type to AHCI, enabled HPET (though there's no option for 64 bit, just enable/disable) and disabled virtualization. I also made sure to disconnect all USB devices except for my etekcity mouse and microsoft wireless keyboard, and disconnected all SATAs except the target device from the mobo. And I always wait at least 20 minutes on each attempt (which from what I've read, is probably too much, especially for an SSD?). I'm using a DVI cable, but I tried it with an HDMI as well. Anyways, that's about it. I'm trying to be as descriptive as possible, but once again, this is my first post so sorry if I messed up somehow. And sorry for the crap crop job in that screenshot, didn't notice it until now Hopefully someone here can help me out. My goal is to use OS X as my primary OS for everyday use, in an SSD, and Windows exclusively for gaming, in a separate HDD. I'd also like to know your opinion on this setup, if possible. Thanks a lot in advance! ---- Specs: - CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 Black Edition 965 - Mobo: Gigabyte GA-970A-D3 (Rev 1.4) - GPU: EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB - SSD: Kingston HyperX 3k SH103S3/240G - RAM: 8GB Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 - Power Supply: 500W Corsair CX500 - Tower: NZXT Guardian 921
