This is (hopefully) an easy, step-by-step tutorial for installing OSX10.9 (and other Operating Systems) on your M6300. <UPDATE: I was able to update to 10.9.3 just fine after this installation.>

 

There’s not too much original information here, as it’s all been regurgitated from borrowed ideas in other posts and advice in forums everywhere.

 

A special THANK YOU to Sergeant for his advice and files that got me started on the right path for this!

 

Note: The attachments are a PDF with the step-by-step instructions and the files necessary to add to your OSX Installation Boot USB.

 

 

Post Install 1:  I followed the advice in another post here about the running myHack's myFix to fix the sleep issue.  My PC does wake up, but sadly my screen remains black ...  However, a nice "side-effect" from running myFix is that my internal WiFi is now working!  Yay!

 

Post Install 2: I've just updated this to 10.9.3 and then immediately (before the reboot) ran myHack's myFix (full).  Everything booted up happy happy.

Interesting stuff, but why use Kext Wizard to add/replace kexts in /E/E of the USB installer? Just manually copy them there then run myFix (quick) on the USB installer. It's always potentially dangerous to mix myHack/myFix and other kext tools such as Kext Wizard.

 

Furthermore, myHack/myFix takes care of the kext cache, so -f bootflag should not be required.

 

You appear to have a different (better?) bootpack than maybe the one provided here, so that should simply be used at USB installer creation and no more messing with kexts and Kext Wizard.

You need a built-in ethernet port to access App Store. Installing the Intel driver will fix the problem. If you don't have a built-in card, you could try this.
