    No problem, the update process should be fairly similar, but haven't tried on a AMD configuration. /Marcus

  3. Hi Thanks for testing, and you are correct a thumbdrive works as well, only had the DVD. :-) The -x -v -f is right at boot when the niresh boot menu shows, you are right should have clarified that to. :-) It's the same DVD/Thumbdrive used when installing from scratch. Thanks for the input, hope it's useful for more people than just me. :-)
  4. OSX not booting after updating from 10.9.0 to 10.9.5

  6. Problem update 10.9.5

  7. Foremost i would like to thank Niresh and all of thoose making this possible, i wanted to give back how i managed to install Mac OS X on my system and update it to 10.9.5. My Hardware Motherboard: MSI Z87-G45 GAMING Graphics card: nVidia GT650 Ti 1GB Memory: 16Gb 1600 MHz DDR3 Hard drive: Sata 250Gb CPU: Intel I7 Haswell 3.5GHz 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 Niresh 10.9.0 install 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 or thumbdrive 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 at the Niresh boot screen if needed. -x -v -f 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 Thanks again and i hope someone else have use for how i did. Update: Thanks to madthinker for pointing out some question marks in this guide, added sections are marked with green above. Regards Marcus
