Thanks a lot to this post , I have my hackintosh !!!  :-P  :-P  :-P  :-P  :-P


My ASUS is a Hackintosh N73SV-V2G-TZ548V (specifications identical to EMlyDinEsH’s computer, except no bluetooth, no BluRay, RAM 8GB, a 250GB SSD).


The prerequisites are:

USB mouse

USB 16GB minimum

Download myHack http://myhack.sojugarden.com/guide/

Download EDP (with Kext Wizard) http://www.osxlatitude.com/edp/download/

Download the Atheros AR9285 WiFi Kext for Mavericks https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/5690-atheros-ar9285-for-os-x-mavericks/

Download Chameleon BootPacks ASUS N53S for the Mavericks (10.9.xx) http://www.osxlatitude.com/edp/compatibility/

And Osx Mavericks of course…


For pre-installation :

Prepare the USB stick with myHack as shown in the tutorial (in dialog boxes that appear at the end of the preparation, I responded to the first NO, YES to the next on the Core i7 processor, and the NO last on nVidia)

After creating the key, replace the /Extra folder on the USB stick by the /Extra folder content in BootPacks (Asus n53SV)

The key is ready. You can test it.

Copy Kext Wizard, the Kext the Atheros WiFi AND BootPacks on your USB drive (in my case, I copied these files to an SD Card) ...


For installation (on the hackintosh):

Connect the USB mouse

Install OsX with the USB key.

Be Careful : after the installation is complete, restart with the USB key.

Start an new installation again (but only in order to launch the Terminal).

In Terminal, replace the /Extra from your OSX installation folder by the /Extra BootPacks folder the content on the USB (SD card for me)

Remove the key and restart

The system starts well.


For Internet connection :

Install Kext Wizard

    For Wifi: with Kext Wizard, install the Atheros AR9285 Kext

    For Ethernet with Multi Beat install Kext AtherosL1cEthernet 1.2.3 (Drivers - Network - Atheros)


The network operates



Download EDP

CONFIG menu, then "Build Model from database", "System: Notebook," "Vendor: Asus", "Asus N53 Series", "Asus N53SV (Intel HD3000 .....)", "Intel Core i7-2630QM Processor (...) "," Bootloader: Chameleon ... ".

Click "Continue to configure your system."

For my part, having no Bluetooth on my machine, I set to OFF switch "Bluetooth Firmware Uploader" in FIXED.

I set to OFF switch "Asus Backlight" in OPTIONAL too, cause kernel panic.

Click "Configure System"



There you go,


ENJOY !!!!!
