And, the display keep flickering on browser, pictures and some of the apps 

How could I fix that??




OK I know why it happen

I am using intel HD4000, so I used this in my config before

<key>device-properties</key>   <string>7f0000000100000001000000730000000200000002010c00d041030a000000000101060000027fff04002c0000004100410050004c002c00690067002d0070006c006100740066006f0072006d002d006900640000000800000005006201140000006800640061002d0067006600780000000d0000006f6e626f6172642d31</string>

Now I removed that string and don't install the AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext. It works fine now. So I think intel HD4000 do not actually need this string.


Now trying to get wifi working


My laptop is Asus K55A   i7-3610QM intel HD4000 Graphics

2.did you use easy flash from bios->advanced [i cannot select mine its greyed out]


3.did you use win-flash from windows? [i heard that bios update using win flash in windows on newer laptops leaves bricking it]


4.is it worth updating to new bios[fan speed etc]

I did not use myhack to make my bootable drive.
here is my step and work for me.

Step1:Disk utility -> partition tab -> change "current" to partition 1.
Option -->GUID
Name it "USB". --> format Mac OS extended (journaled)
--> apply --> partition

Step2:Open terminal type:

sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Mavericks.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Mavericks.app --no interaction

Wait until it say "done" it may take 10 to 15mis
[i dunno Step 3 is necessary or not, but it works for me. I am newbie too. Please point it out if any step is not necessary thanks]
Step3: download Clover and open it
http://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot (chameleon, stolen and rebranded)/

Continue -> continue -> change install location -> select " install OS X Mavericks"
Customize -> trick Install for UEFI -> theme : Bootcamp -> Drivers64UEFI: EmuVariable OsxAptioFixDrv PartitionDxe
Then "install". After install you will have a EFI driver.
Download the Clover EFI 2636 2.3.14.zip in this post first page
Copy the "EFI folder" inside Clover EFI 2636 2.3.14 to the EFI driver. Replace All.
go to the "Apps folder" inside Clover EFI 2636 2.3.14, open Showhiddenfiles app --> hit "Show special files".
Now copy all kexts of efi/clover/kexts/10.9 into OS X Install USB/System/Library/Extensions and replace
Then bootable USB is done. I can use it.
Then go back the first page of this post and follow the rest.

*Don't install AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext


If you success to install the OSX, but you don't see the bootloader after restart.
Is this your problem? If yes see below,
You open the config that inside the "CLOVER" FOLDER in your EFI driver.
and search the "time out". change 0 to 10.

Ok. I got my windows work now. 

Here is my steps: 

you need to make a bootable UEFI USB Drive for windows (Use option one) 

(If you don't know how to make, google "UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows" (first link Use option one) 


First, you have to partition Mac OSX Extended / Freespace to split the drive before install OSX.

(You could not format fat/exfat in here, otherwise, The partition would mess up with Hybrid MBR. it cannot install windows)

After you install OSX following this guide,  insert the windows USB and restart.

Choose windows at the bootloader.

Then,install Windows in the partition which you format before.


Then, you can see it in clover bootloader after finish installation.



For ubuntu,

make a bootable ubuntu disc or USB.

Set Boot Device to USB/Disc

Install ubuntu --> Continue until "Installation Type" then select  "something else"

press "+" --> Create partition --> make a 2048MB partition use as swap

press "+" --> Create partition --> make you system partition use ext4

Device for boot loader installation -> (use the same one as the system partition)


Restart and set back your first Boot Device as Clover EFI (/EFI/CLOVER/CLOVERX64) in BIOS.

Then, your bootloader would able to see the Ubuntu. DONE
