  1. Hi Guys As many users have successfully installed mavericks on D630 I'm sure I must be doing something wrong. I have D630 with Nvidia graphics running Lion without any issues. I am trying to upgrade to mavericks as follows:- replace disk drive - partition/erase as GUID build installer using myhack - no mbr - 10.9 bootpack installer works perfectly and completes installation reboot progresses to a point and then freezes - picture attached (sorry about the quality) Any help appreciated. arcaman6
  2. i have been trying to get 10.9 onto my e6500 for days now without any luck. every time i end up with it telling me osx couldn't install and asking to view the log. this is before i even get into the installation right after it asks you to choose a language. normally i wouldnt start a new topic but i have looked everywhere and tried everything. i have tried with every option in my bios (A29) off and on and with -x -v pcirootuid=0,1 npci=0x2000,3000, -f, graphicsenabler=yes, and with various combinations of those tags (of course properly capitalized). anyone have any idea what i am doing wrong here? i used the current myhack download to install 10.9 onto USB and add the extra that is suggested on a page on this forum for building e6500's with mavericks. o yea and of course, after creating the usb installer a few days ago my other hackintosh crashed on me (gigabyte board with a Q6600 8gb PC6400, HD6850) and i havent had a chance to rebuild that install yet. so i have some experience with this stuff but this damn thing has me stumped... what bios is everyone else running too? as i said mine is A29. any ideas?? thanks yall e6500 A29 t9700 2.8ghz c2d 4gb nvidia nvs160m @ 1920x1200 currently running win7-64bit and ubuntu 14.04lts-64bit will install on a seperate hd i have tried also formatting my drives with Disk Utility to GUID with an HFS+ partition, and have tried MBR (the myhack install should have installed the mbr patch) but alas still no luck with either...
  3. Hey guys, Recently I've got problem with my Mavericks 10.9 - it seems that I can't change brightness with controls Fn + Home/End, neither with System Preferences. I can change brightness of my screen only during boot. Any ideas to solve this problem? Thanks
  4. Hi, I've succesfully installed mavericks on my dell 3521 using Myhack but i've noticed some problems after fine-tuning with the edp app. First of all, the patched appleintelcpupowermanagemet.kext that gets installed to get my powermanagement working, gives me a kernel panic after rebooting. I fixed this by downloading a patched version from the niresh website. After using their patch i could boot and everything works good now. my second problem is that when i boot my hackintosh with -v, it hangs for a long time at "ioapic version 0x20 vectors 64 87". How can i fix this ? I know it doesn't seem to be an error but it takes damn long to boot when it always stops there. And last but not least, i found out that my laptop is using the realtek alc282 audio chipset but the edp recommends to install a version of voodoohda... I tested it by removing voodoohda and patching my applehda using the hackintosh vietnam tool and got my my audio to work out of the box. What would be the best to be using ? voodoohda or a patched applehda ? Thanks.
  5. Hi, I've tried to install Mavericks on my system, but unfortunately I don't even make it to the installation screen. Bios is set up properly and I've got an intel processor, nvidia graphics and an Asus mainboard. When booting verbose it gets stuck with the following error: USBMSC Identifier (non unique): 058F63646476 0x58f 0x6364 0x100, 2 Still waiting for root device What could that be? Does anybody know a solution? Thanks in advance! Intel Core i3-3240 @ 3,4 Ghz 8 GBs of RAM nVidia GeForce GTX 650 Asus B75M-A
  6. Updated 21 october 2013 - Fixed some text true the document - Rewrite of chapter 7 - Added new images for chameleon install and iMessage Error - Added section TROUBLESHOOTING - Added Boot 0 : ERROR in Troubleshooting - Added iMessage Error in Troubleshooting - New Install109.zip Run OSX Mavericks on a Dell Optiplex 780 This tutorial will describe the steps to install Mavericks on a Dell Optiplex 780 (this will also works on a 760). The installation goes to the latest version of 10.9, and when there is a new update i will change the tutorial as soon as possible. If you find any mistakes or have something to improve then please send me a PM and i will update the tutorial. I have also included the PDF file of the guide and the zip file to install OSX Mavericks. A special thanks goes to Brian from Tech Erra for using parts of their tutorial. I am from The Netherlands so sorry for my bad English. 1. Credits/Sources Everything OSx86-related is a collaborative effort amongst people who enjoy doing these things, as well as those of us who enjoy tweaking and experimenting with things. Below are a list of sources used to compile this guide: Tech Erra OSX86 Wiki InsanelyMac Forum member Pingu from Germany for helping me out with the text changes. And all other forum members who have posted in my topic and helping out the community. 2. Requirements Here are the requirements: A Dell Optiplex 780 – This is necessary to install OSX Mavericks for this tutorial A copy of Mac OS X – This can be in the form of an existing hackintosh, a virtual machine within Windows or Linux, or even a regular Mac. If you don’t have any of these things, then find someone who can help you out for a while. I prefer using a hackintosh with OSX Mountain Lion. Using an already working copy of Mac OS X either in a VM or a native hackintosh install is HIGHLY recommended. A 8GB USB flash drive (or larger) – We’ll be copying the files to the drive appropriately, so make sure that you have a flash drive with enough storage space (8GB or larger). A copy Mavericks 10.9 GM – If you don’t have a Mac Developer Account, then you’ll find torrents of 10.9 around the web. 30-60 minutes of time – Depending on how tech-savvy you are, this may be quick, or it may take a while. An SSD or HDD to install 10.9 to – For me, I used a 500GB partition to install 10.9 to. An PCI Express Video Card – For use with QE and CI Highly recommended. I use a Ati Radeon HD5450 1GB but 512MB or 2GB also works. Install109.zip – This ZIP file contains everything that you need to get your flash drive properly prepared. Note: The files for number 8 "Install109.zip" contains the following Directory's (4) and files: Kernel - Mach Kernel Kexts - FakeSMC.kext - NullCPUPowerManagement.kext - EliottForceLegacyRTC.kext - AppleIntelE1000e.kext - VoodooHDA.kext OSInstall - OSInstall - OSInstall.mpkg (Not used for my configuration because I use the entire hard disk) Utils - Chameleon-2.2svn-r2265 - Chameleon Wizard - Kext Utility - EFI Studio - ShowHiddenFiles The first 3.kext files will fix most kernel panics en bios reset that you might experience while booting. The 2 OSInstall files will allow you to install 10.9 onto an MBR-partitioned drive ( ! this is not tested, for further info go to insanelymac forum !). 3. My Specs My installation was successfully done on an Dell Optiplex 780 Desktop computer with the following specs. NOTE: A PCI video card is recommended to use the full potential of OS of Mountain Lion because the on board video card doesn't support QE/CI. Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 @ 2.93GHz 8GB DDR3 1333Mhz RAM Western Digital 500GB HDD ATI RADEON HD5450 1GB Intel WG82567LM onboard network Bluetooth USB Cambridge silicon radio (works OOB) ADI 1984A HDA audio onboard HP W2207h Monitor 1680×1050 display Apple Magic Trackpad Apple Wireless Keyboard US 4. Preparing your SSD or HDD for install on a MBR-partitioned drive If you intent to install OSX86 Mavericks on the same Hard disk as your windows follow the steps below. For a clean install on a new formatted hard disk go to Chapter 5. If you’re in Windows 7, you can easily make a new partition on an SSD or HDD via the Disk Management program. Start>Run (or Windows key on your keyboard plus R). diskmgmt.msc (press enter after typing that) Find your drive, right-click on it, and go to Shrink Volume. Wait for it to calculate the amount of space you can make your partition, and enter in your amount (for an exact GB amount, multiple your desired amount of GB times 1024, so a 20GB partition would be 20480MB). Let it make your partition. It will show up as unallocated space. Format the new unallocated space as NTFS and give it a label (mine was Mavericks). Done! 5. Formatting your USB drive Start OSX Mountain (Lion) or Snow Leopard to prepare your USB Flash drive Make sure to backup the files that are already on your USB flash drive via Disk Utility in Mac OS X: Extract the zip file Install109.zip to your Mac OS x desktop Put USB drive in your Mac Open up Disk Utility. Click on your USB drive in the left sidebar. Click on the Erase tab in the middle. Choose “Mac OS X Extended (Journaled)†as the format, and give your drive a label (like “MAVERICKS USBâ€). Click on the Erase… button. Done! Leave Disk Utility open, as you’ll need it later. 6. Preparing your USB drive with 10.9 This part is the most time consuming. Using a USB 3.0 flash drive will help things out quite a bit. Mount the DMG for Mavericks (will be called Mac OS X Install ESD on your desktop). Show hidden files by running the app ShowHiddenFiles in the folder Install109 - Util on your desktop. Click on Show Special Files (leave the app ShowHiddenFiles open we need this later). In the folder MAC OS X Install ESD right click on Basesystem.dmg and choose “ open with DiskImageMounter(default) Switch back to Disk Utility. Click on your flash drive in the left sidebar. Click on the Restore button in the middle area. For the source, drag “Mac OS X Base System†from your desktop into the empty Source box. For the destination, drag your USB drive from your desktop into the empty Destination box. Click on “Restore†and type your password. This process will take anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes depending on the speed of your flash drive. When it’s finished, you’ll end up with 2 “Mac OS X Base System†drives on your desktop. Figure out which one is your USB copy (you can right-click > Get Info and use the capacity as an indicator), and rename it to MAVERICKSUSB, after that open it up. Once you’ve opened up MAVERICKSUSB (the one that’s your flash drive), go to /System/Installation. You’ll see a symlink for Packages. Remove it. Create a folder called Packages. Open up a window of the original Mac OS X Install ESD drive and copy everything within Packages to the empty Packages folder on your USB drive. Done! 10.9 is now installed onto your USB drive. Now, we need to modify some of the files on it so that it will properly bootup on a PC. 7. Adding the fixed 10.9 files to the USB drive Now, we need to modify some of the files on your USB drive so that it will properly bootup on your PC. Open the folder “Instal109 - Kexts†on your Mac OS X desktop. Copy 3 .kext files (FakeSMC.kext, NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, EliottForceLegacyRTC.kext) to /System/Library/Extensions on your flash drive. NOTE: The 2 OSInstall files will allow you to install 10.9 onto an MBR-partitioned drive, if you install it on the entire hard disk skip step 3 and 4 an go further with step 5. Copy the OSInstall file to /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Install.framework/Frameworks/OSInstall.framework/Versions/A/, overwriting the file that’s already there. Copy the OSInstall.mpkg file to /System/Installation/Packages/, overwriting the file that’s already there. Go to the root of your USB drive and create a folder called "Extra". This is used to store configuration files for the chameleon boot loader Run the Chameleon installation package from Install - Utils. Make sure to install this package to your flash drive. Choose in the Chameleon setup for Customize, in the customize screen choose Modules – FileNVRAM ( we need this to make iMessage work) after that go further with the install of Chameleon. Run the Chameleon Wizard click the “SMBios†tab then click "Edit". Now there is a list of “Premade SMBiosesâ€. Look through this list and choose for your Dell Optiplex 780 the iMac9.1. Click “Save As†and save it to the /Extra folder we created on the USB stick. Choose Tab Org.Chameleon.boot and set the follow options like in the image below. If the settings are like the image then Click “Save As†and save it to the /Extra folder we created on the USB stick. Copy mach_kernel from the Folder Install109 - Kernel and paste it into the root of your flash drive. Lastly, copy extracted folder (Install109) which you have extracted earlier from the zip file to the root of your flash drive. You’ll need this in Chapter 12 Eject all mounted drives (this is not necessary) Go to ShowHiddenFiles and click hide special files after that close program. Eject your USB Drive Done ! 8. Bios Settings Dell Optiplex 780 Before we boot from the Dell Optiplex we need to optimize the bios for OSX Mavericks. Start your Dell Optiplex and press F2 to get into the Bios. Go to Boot Sequence and choose on the right for USB Device and click the up arrow so that the USB Device is on top, click on apply to make the setting. Go then to Drives - Sata Operation and choose on the right for Raid Autodetect/AHCI click again on apply and choose exit, now the Bios is ready for installing OSX Mavericks. 9. Installing OSX Mavericks from your USB drive Time for the fun stuff! We’ll now boot from your USB drive and install OSX Mavericks onto the partition or Hard Drive. Boot from your USB drive. Once in Chameleon let the boot loader resume (or hit enter to start it manually highlight your flash drive and add -v -f to the end, then push enter. You’ll see a lot of text fly by be patience startup may take a while.) Once you get into the installer (assuming your computer didn’t freeze, restart itself, or get a kernel panic), choose your partition or Hard Disk to install OSX Mavericks to. NOTE : when you install it on a partition skip step 5 - 10 see Chapter 4. (If you install Mavericks on the entire Hard disk follow the steps below ) In the installer open up Disk Utility. Click on your Hard Drive in the left sidebar. Click on the Erase tab in the middle. Choose “Mac OS X Extended (Journaled)†as the format, and give your drive a label (like “MAVERICKSâ€). Click on the Erase… button. Done close Disk Utility and go further with the installation process. The installation process will take about 5 to 15 minutes, depending on the speed of both your USB drive and your SSD or HDD. When finished boot to your new OSX Mavericks. 10. Booting OSX Mavericks! Now that everything is finally prepared, you can go ahead and boot into OSX Mavericks. Boot from your USB drive again your computer won't still be able to boot from the hard drive. 2. Once in Chameleon let the boot loader resume (or hit enter to start it manually highlight your flash drive and add -v -f to the end, then push enter. You’ll see a lot of text fly by be patience startup may take a while.) You’ll eventually get to the setup screens for OSX Mavericks. Go through that process to setup OSX Mavericks. Choose by "How Do You Connect" for "My Computer Does Not Connect to the Internet" we will fix this later in Chapter 12, go further with the installation process. The installation process will take about 3 minutes. Done! Proceed to Chapter 11 to install the bootloader to your partition so that you don’t have to rely on using your USB drive to bootup. 11. Installing the bootloader to 10.9 Once in 10.9 go to finder – preferences –General and choose in show these items on the desktop for - Hard Disk - External Disk - CD Go also to System Preferences – Security& Privacy click on the lock on the left corner and type your password Choose by “Allow applications downloaded from: for “Anywhere – Allow from anywhere Close system preferences. Navigate to your folder Install109 -Utils and run the chameleon package, install it to your OS X drive. Copy the Extra folder on your USB drive to the root of your HDD (open Finder -> Go -> Computer -> OS X -> paste folder). Done! 12. Install the Kext files for de Dell Optiplex 780 hardware Now, we need to install some Kext files on your Hard Disk drive so that the hardware will work properly on your PC. Open the folder “Install109 - Kexts†and select the following Kext files - AppelIntelE1000e.kext - EliottForceLegacyRTC.kext - FakeSMC.kext - NullCPUPowerManagement.kext - VoodooHDA.kext Drag the Kext files (which are mentioned above) over "Kext utility.app" (contained in folder “Install780â€) and release the mouse Type your root password and the Kext files will be installed on your Hard disk. Reboot. Once in OSX Mavericks go to System Preferences – Network There will be a message saying “Network device is detected†Choose apply if you want to use DHCP or give a IP Address if you use static IP. Click apply to make the setting active. 13. Installing Video for QE/CI Manually Copy the Kext files AMD5000Controller.kext and AMDRadeonX3000.kext from system/library/extension to your desktop. Go to AMD5000Controller.kext and rightclick and choose Show Package Contents and open info.plist with textedit. Find <key>IOPCIMatch</key> and add your string for HD5450 ( HD5450 1GB the string is 0x68F91002 and for 512MB the string is 0x68E11002) <string>0x68F91002 0x68981002 0x68991002 0x68E01002 0x68E11002 0x68D81002 0x68C01002 0x68C11002 0x68D91002 0x68B81002 0x68B01002 0x68B11002 0x68A01002 0x68A11002 </string> Save and Exit Go to AMDRadeonX3000.kext and rightclick and choose Show Package Contents and open info.plist with textedit. Find <key>AMDCedarGraphicsAccelerator</key> and then look for the first <key>IOPCIMatch</key> and add your string for HD5450 ( HD5450 1GB the string is 0x68F91002 and for 512MB the string is 0x68E11002) add <string>0x68F91002 0x68E01002</string> Save and Exit Install both kext files with Kext Utility Now reboot. After Reboot the video card must be working with QE/CI. TROUBLESHOOTING 14. BOOT 0 ERROR If you are using a 4k HDD you can get boot:0 error, to solve this issue do the following Reboot system back into Mavericks installer (USB)FLASH DRIVE). Run Disk Utility find the Disk Identifier (eg. disk0s2). Unmount the drive you installed Mavericks on Launch Terminal and execute the following command: dd if=/usr/standalone/i386/boot1h of=/dev/disk0s2 Exit Terminal Boot Normally 15. App store and iCloud doesn't work If AppStore and iCloud doesn't work follow the steps below. Open up EFI Studio in folder “Install109 - Utils.†, select Ethernet, select Add Device. On the new window you will see a lot of numbers (Hex String) in the second row. Then clicked write to com.apple.boot.plist. Then go to /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/apple.com.boot.plist and select the new key and string it added. Now you can add the Hex Strings to your org.chameleon.boot.plist(com.apple.boot.plist) see Chapter 12 which should be in root/extra folder. When you add it manually make sure it is in <key>device-properties</key> <string>Your Hex String here</string> arguments after that. Remove all network devices from System Preferences/Network. Delete in library>preferences>system configuration> NetworkInterfaces.plist file. Finally, Reboot. After reboot, go to System Preferences/Network add devices. Click (Ethernet) FIRST!! Then add the other adapters you use to connect to the internet or Bluetooth. Voila. App Store and iCloud now works. 16. iMessage Fix Hackintoshes have been unable to log into the Messages app (better known as "iMessage") on OS X Mountain Lion and Mavericks. We can now fix the problem using Chameleon bootloader. Run the Chameleon installation package from Install - Utils. Make sure to install this package to your HDD. Choose in the Chameleon setup for Customize, in the customize screen choose Modules – FileNVRAM after that go further with the install of Chameleon Finally, Reboot Voila. iMessage now works 17. If sound doesn’t work The HDMI from the Ati Radeon 5450 doesn’t work properly so we need to change this to Headphone, follow the step below to make sound work. Open System Preferences – Sound – Output – And choose for Headphones.18. Finished! You’ve successfully installed OSX Mavericks onto your Dell Optiplex 780. Install109.zip run os x mavericks 10.9.pdf
  7. At first, since this is my first post here, big congrats for your effort. Really made me install OSX Mavericks (10.9.1) on my E6530. I have followed the instructions here provided by Jake Lo (thanks for that; really made it quite easy). Compared to his system, I have a different version of BIOS (A13) than the one in the guide (A12). Should I reinstalled the earlier version (if this is possible)? Now, with the issues I am facing: 1. I can hear the noise of the fan working all the time. Of course it is not that loud, but is this really what I should expect? 2. I am using the Extra_Mav.zip folder in my system, as it is in the archive. The only change I made in the boot.plist was to add a Timeout of 2 seconds. Should I do anything else? (Again, my system is identical to the guide, except the BIOS version). 3. The laptop now is always quite hot, on the left side. Power management is really working? The Activity Monitor shows that the CPU is over 80% idle most of the time, but still laptop gets quite hot, so most possibly PM is indeed working. Maybe it is because of the nVidia card, which is all the time enabled? 4. Should I update to 10.9.2? Based on my experience, with SL 10.6 some time ago, I should install the delta or combo update, reinstall Chameleon and I should be good to go (or maybe troubleshoot some stuff, but I should be able to login again to OSX). Whenever you have time! Cheers! Christos

  9. I have a Dell Latitude D630 with NVidia graphics. It has a Core 2 Duo and NVidia Quadro NVS 135m. I followed the guide on this site. I created the flash drive with myHack. I installed the extra folder on the flash drive. I booted the flash drive on my Dell. Installed OS X Mavericks. At the end of the install it asked for the extra folder, I chose the extra folder from the flash drive. I boot into the Mavericks on my HDD. I set every thing up. Everything works fine up to this point. Here's when it goes bad: I install EDP and choose my model then click build. I downloads everything. Installs everything. I reboot. after the bios it shows the boot loader. It tries to boot into the Mac HDD and it can't. It say boot error. It can't get passed the boot loader. I tried two different HDD's they both give me the same error. This worked fine with the old version of EDP. I started to give me problems with the new EDP. It works fine with Snow Leopard and Lion. I get this error with Maverick's and Mountain Lion. I never got this error with the old EDP. I wish they never changed it. What can I do?

  11. Hi, after a few KP's i managed to get my fresh Mavericks 10.9.4 system working relatively smoothly, but i'm not really sure about Power Management, Speedstep, C-States,P-States etc and also Wake from Sleep is broken. (No video signal on wake). I don't really know about patching my motherboard etc. Couldn't find any pre-made patches. Also i don't really understand whether i need SSDT or DSDT (apparently not the latter for UEFI Mobo?) and I don't know how i test eg C-States, P-States etc or what I need them for. One thing that's a possible "issue" is the Corsair H80i, attached to the Mobo via mini-usb. there's no controller software for OSX obviously. When I had a 10.9 Mavericks working with Sleep, it would wake itself up immediately with GLAN EHC2. This may have been the USB connection on the fan forcing it to wake up but not sure. Currently though Wake is broken as mentioned, so I can't just test that issue by unplugging the USB at the moment) any advice & links would be gratefully appreciated. Presumably first step would be to fix the system to be able to remove NullCPUPowerManagement? thanks J Mavericks 10.9.4 (from App Store) myHack installer myHack AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement patch NullCPUPowerManagement.kext myHack TRIM patch kernel flags: npci=0x2000 dart=0 GraphicsEnabler=Yes Realtek81xx kext for ethernet (or might be using EthernetBuiltIn=Yes... not sure, as both present) Envy24 audio drivers for m-audio Audiophile2496 Chameleon NVFileRam kext for iMessage fix --- Motherboard: Asus P8B75-V (UEFI) CPU: i7 3770 GPU: Zotac GT210 Cooler: Corsair H80i SSD: Samsung EVO840 250GB

  13. Hello everyone, I just installed OS X Mavericks on my latitude e6400 with myhack. I tried to install a graphics kext for my intel gm45 graphics, and in the guide, it told me to replace my boot.plist. I replaced it with the one provided, but when I rebooted, it said that it was late by xxxxx seconds, and I had to use forcewake=Y to override. I entered in this boot flag, but after a second, my computer just restarted and came back to the charms lion boot screen. I don't have access to a Mac anymore to create an installer to reinstall, so what should I do? Thank you in advance!

  15. Hi all, First of all thanks Jake Lo for the great guide ! I installed following your guide https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/5641-dell-latitude-e6430-e6230-intel-mavericks/ My system is Dell E6530, i7-3540, HD4000, 1920x1080 My current version is Mavericks 10.9.3, I upgraded from 10.9.2 My problem is that I do not have sound working at all and I am using the latest AppleHDA you provided, Apple HDA provided for 10.9.2 also doesn't work (it didn't for 10.9.2 either) These are the lines containing AppleHDA from system.log Jun 15 12:03:06 Cristians-MacBook-Pro.local com.apple.kextd[12]: WARNING - Invalid signature -67030 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA2A for kext "/System/Library/Extensions/myHack.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleHDAController.kext" Jun 15 12:03:06 Cristians-MacBook-Pro.local com.apple.kextd[12]: WARNING - Invalid signature -67030 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA2A for kext "/System/Library/Extensions/myHack.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleHDA.kext" Jun 15 12:03:07 Cristians-MacBook-Pro.local com.apple.kextd[12]: WARNING - Invalid signature -67030 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA2A for kext "/System/Library/Extensions/myHack.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleHDAHardwareConfigDriver.kext" Jun 15 12:03:08 Cristians-MacBook-Pro kernel[0]: Sound assertion in AppleHDADriver at line 1535 Jun 15 12:03:08 Cristians-MacBook-Pro kernel[0]: Sound assertion in AppleHDADriver at line 2205 Jun 15 12:03:08 Cristians-MacBook-Pro kernel[0]: Sound assertion in AppleHDADriver at line 207 Jun 15 12:03:08 Cristians-MacBook-Pro kernel[0]: Sound assertion in AppleHDADriver at line 1094 I assume the first 3 warnings are ok but the next lines are not Any help is greatly appreciated !

  16. Two problems: Wireless Cannot Find Networks I installed an Atheros AR5BHB112 as recommended on the supported/unsupported card thread. It is detected but cannot find wireless networks. I tried to manually enter my wireless network information, but it could not find it/connect in either clear or WEP modes. My SSID is not hidden. lspci -nn returns: 03:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9300 Wireless LAN adaptor [168c:0030] (rev 01) I've tried running MyFix quick and full and have rebooted several times with no success. The old Dell card had two antenna hookups for ch 1 and 2; I attached those to ch 1 and 2 on the Atheros card. There was a third cable that was unused; I attached that to ch 0 on the Atheros card. Is this where I went wrong? Keyboard Layout Is Not Saved I use a Japanese keyboard layout. When I reboot, the computer reverts to a US layout and I have to go to Keyboard Settings to redetect it. Is there a way to permanently set it to a Japanese layout?
  17. First post, long time wannabe hackintosher. Recently I've picked up a Samsung NP900X4D-A03CA laptop, which looks promisingly similar to the NP900X4C/X3C models. i5-3317U and similar (if not same?) BIOS's. First, I'd like to take time in advance to thank anyone willing to lend a hand Second, I've done a hackintosh install before using Hazard's Intel/AMD SSE2/3 distrobution, and although it wasn't pretty, I managed to hack away at it until it was fully functioning on an AMD Athlon II X2 240 processor. Fun times. Third, I'm definitely willing to provide logs, DSDT's, SSDT's, etc, etc. with a little guidance. No, there's not a working anything installation as I'm trying to make this soley an OSX machine, but I can definitely hop into a bootable Linux distribution of anyone's choosing should it assist us in pulling DSDT's or other ACPI data from the mobo. So, without further ado, here's the specs: Problem I've having is getting it to boot without the black screen Intel HD4000 problem. Here's what I've tried so far: Originally I started with Niresh's 10.9.2 customized ISO meant for both Intel and AMD systems, and it worked OK for the installation part. No boot flags required immediately from the get go, just pop the DVD into my external USB DVD Drive, USB 2 or 3 port works fine, boot up, install with default options. The problem is upon reboot, it hangs unless I use the GraphicsEnabler=No flag, and then it doesn't hang, but gets stuck at a black screen, probably trying to display over the micro-HDMI port. (I have ordered a micro-HDMI to HDMI adapter to help troubleshoot this.) I went back at least 8 times, selecting different SMBIOS.plist files, none of which helped in any way, and eventually booted into single user mode -s and was able to run their grafix backup all script to clean all the Intel kext files out. After that, I managed to get it to boot and login, although I had to do so as root because it skipped the initial setup screen...? Anywho, since then I attempted to use EDP, which failed because of other kexts already loaded from Niresh's, so I figured as I have a half-baked install, why not use it to download legit Mavericks and run myHack? Plug in USB for formatting, kernel panic! Needless to say, I ended up creating a myHack USB Installer at work on their Mac's, and used the NP900X4C compatibility pack from OSXLatitude, including your handy guide. Problem there is the installer would also boot to a black screen unless I used -x safe mode flag. (Yes, I did try the GraphicsEnabler=No/Yes and the IGPEnabler=No/Yes flags just for the giggles, neither of which helped.) I went ahead and installed it from -x safe mode flag boot, and selected the "/Extra" Kexts folder bootpack for the NP900X4C but upon reboot, it would start up, seem normal in verbose mode (no abnormal errors) until Mr. DSMOS arrives which is when it finishes booting and bingo bango! Black Screen. I have also tried the IGPlatformId=xxxxxxxx and IGPEnabler=Yes flags, they're not seeming to do anything different. I seem to be in the same pickle as this guy's thread and would love any assistance or insight's into my sillyness. According to the information @Stanislav was able to provide, the Samsung 900X3C/900X3D/900X4C/900X4D models all share the same motherboard, so technically speaking they should all be able to use the same bookpack or DSDT files, yes? (assuming the processors are all i5-3317U's as well) Anywho, I'll await patiently and see if we get anywhere, and do have Mac's at work I can use to keep making hackintosh installation USB's. Many thanks, Erik
  18. Hi everyone ! I have a strange problem. I've just installed 10.9 on my AMD Athlon 64 x2 2.0 Ghz 2 GB DDR2 RAM. I have 2 SATA drives, one of 80 GB for OS X and another one of 500 GB for Windows 8.1 / Data. Everythings works fine but for an unknown reason, sometimes the second 500 GB drive suddendly disappear from my desktop saying Ejecting Error, try to disconnect the drive by…etc, just as if it was an USB external drive. System Profiler detects it as a SATA drive, the icons aren't yellow, there's just like any normal drive and most of time, I can read/write on them without problems. I did a Time Machine backup without issues. First I thought that it was a Kext conflict between SuperVIAATA.kext and IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector.kext or AHCI_3rdPartySata.kext but I tried to remove the two last of them and be able to boot fine (Removing SuperVIAATA.kext result as "still waiting for root device"). But the problem persist and I can't figure why ! The drive works fine on Windows and shows no errors, SMART state is reported as capable and OK and the 80 GB hosting OS X works fine as well. My desktop is a HP dc5750 with the latest BIOS (configure in Native IDE mode - no AHCI available) and beside this very anoying problem under OS X, it works fine. Any ideas ?
  19. Hey all, By now many OSX users have updated to 10.9.2, and it brings awesome new functionality, such as Face Time audio. But many users (Mac and Hackintosh) have noticed that iSight and Webcams are not working. This also fixes the VDCAssistant crash error. The simple fix is to uninstall any 3rd Party video driver. This is being fixed in 10.9.3 betas, but for now... A list of conflicting drivers; - DisplayLink software - AirParrot - Air Display - iDisplay - Splashtop virtual display driver - ScreenRecycler - All programs that create a virtual screen To fix your iSight, delete the program, and its related kexts from /S/L/E/ and or /E/E/. If you know what kexts the program installs, just google "yourprogram uninstall mac" If you find a conflicting program, feel free to post it up and I will add it to the list!
  20. Hi everyone, Got a new D830 but I'm facing multiples issues to get the setup works. It's a sandard Dell D830 Nvidia Quadro NVS 135M serie with Core2Duo T7250 2Go RAM. BUT : The LCD is dead so I've remove it and it's now connected to an external LCD Scrren via VGA outpout AND : No internal Drive, so I use an external USB disk with 1 MBR partition for Windows 8.1 and 1 MBR partition for Mavericks HFS+ journalised. AHCI support (useless in my case) is enabled and the BIOS settings are those given by your Install Guide for D830 systems. I first tried to create an USB install pen with MyHack 3.3.1 but it's stucked at Bluetooth Missing Controller etc… I tried to skip the MBR patch and do it later using InsanelyMac method and I also tried a lots of Boot flags, but no changes. So I create another one with Pandora's box and I can boot fine and install Mavericks. I've noticed that the installer doesn't create a boot file and there's no Extra folder too. Hopefully, because it's just an USB disk I've just plug it in another Mac and did it manually (using MyHack to install the D830 mav bootpack Extra folder). So I can boot and configure the system. But I tried to use EDP post install tool to enable QE/CI on my setup and it just fails. Natit is installed but there's no QE/CI. I've tried to download a fresh Natit kext from OSX86.net (which is strangely 7Mb where the EDP one is about 77 Ko) but it's still the same. I know it's an unusual type of configuration but it should works. Any ideas ? Thanks
  21. E6520 with NVS 4200M disabled and HD3000 (Optimus Enabled) working on Mavericks (10.9) including sleep. Here is a list of what's working: - shutdown and restart using dsdt.aml - video Opetimus enabled (disable NVS4200) to get the sleep working - used Mbeast for - patched AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement - ethernet using hnak's AppleIntelE1000e v2.5.4d -> v2.4.14 - sound using VoodooHDA v2.8.4 -> fixed AppleHDA - hardware monitoring using fakeSMC v5.3.820 and plugin - 3rd Party SATA - TRIM enabler 10.9.0 - battery using VoodooBattery -> ACPIBatteryManager - touchpad using VoodooPS2Controller by RhabmanMerg - turboboost to 3.2Ghz using ssdt.aml generated from RevoGirl's blog - replaced wifi card, so the out-of-the-box AirPort works - SDHC card working with VoodooSDHC - provided by heemsker below; then disabled it to get sleep working All the relevant files are attached. The way I was able to install Mavericks was using MBeast. MBeast and having another partition with somewhat working Mountain Lion (10.8). I created an installation partition using MBeast and ran MBeast against the partition in order to boot and install Mavericks. Once Mavericks was installed, I had to boot from ML partition and run MBeast and put the dsdt.aml. Then, I installed the other extensions one by one. I was also able to follow the link below to install Mavericks using myHack. Changed couple of kext to latest: - patched AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement - ethernet using hnak's AppleIntelE1000e v2.5.4d -> v2.4.14 - hardware monitoring using fakeSMC v5.3.820 and plugin - TRIM enabler 10.9.0 - VoodooPSController for Trackpad allows multi finger action Change Log: 03-13-14: 10.9.2 update and sound working again (attached EE myHack Mavericks 10.9.2 03-13-14) - AppleHDA provided by Jake Lo - Removed npci=0x2000 kernel flag and kexts (AppleACPIP2Nub and GenericUSBXHCI) suggested by El Capitan - Was not able to boot if AppleACPIPlatform kext is removed. Keep it for now. - Still using Chameleon r2266. r2377 will precent booting with a Memory Allocation error. chimera (chameleon, stolen and rebranded) v2.2.1 will boot, but no sound. 01-12-14: - Sleep working now following the instruction here https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/5943-dell-latitude-e6520-with-optimus-enabled-mavericks/&do=findComment&comment=32152. - Sound working with Jake's AppleHDA; removed VoodooHDA - Trying ACPBatterManager; removed VoodooBattery - Not sure about AppleKextExclude provided by Jake. Trying it out Attached revised myHack files. 11-24-13: Updated EE and SLE download to include VoodooSDHC to get the smart card working. 11-24-13: Updated myHack Extra to use VoodooBattery allowing overclock to 3.2Ghz.

  22. Hi everyone, I'm trying to install Mac OSX Mavericks on an ACER Aspire 5920G laptop (Intel Core 2 Duo T5450, Graphics by NVIDIA GeForce 8600m GT). The first time I was attempting a boot in verbose mode, I got the "Configuration end, bridge x device 19" error. As the boot flags "npci=0x2000" and "npci=0x3000" weren't effective, I added IOPCIFamily.kext and AppleAPCIPlatform.kext in the Extra folder, which made the installation hang at "Configuration Begin". So I made a copy of IOPCIFamily.kext in the S/L/E folder, which corrected the error but gave me the "DSMOS has arrived" error. Now I tried to replace FakeSMC.kext with a new one, and I copied it into the S/L/E folder. I also deleted all graphic kext : AppleIntelHD*.kext, AppleIntelSNB*.kext, AMDRadeon*.kext, ATI*.kext, GeForce*.kext and NVDA*.kext, which didn't change anything. Of course I tried to boot with the "GraphicsEnabler=No" and the "-x" boot flags. One more thing, before the "DSMOS has arrived" line shows up, I noticed the following errors : "BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist : 2 No such file or directory", "SuperIODevice : [Fatal] found unsupported ship ITE sequence ID=0xfc11, Winbond sequence ID=0xffff" Any idea on how to fix it ? Thanks for your time.
  23. Hey there, Name's Advanttage (Steve) I attend the forums, although I'll be the first to say I'm not the best at engaging, mainly for research as I don't have much to offer in the "moving forward" realm. Anyhow, attached you will find a System Report generated by Aida64 that outlines my system, which for the record is Dell E6410 NVidia 4GB(2x2GB) 750GB HDD, Windows 8.1 (primary drive) I have a spare 160 GB HDD that I'm using for this little project. I am using an iMac that my roommate has to create the installer, he is running Mavericks. Following this guide for the OS X installation works, Upon install I have to figure out a solution for Lan/Wifi but that's irrelevant for now. So, I mentioned I have the 160GB drive as my project drive, I swap out my primary HDD w/ Win8.1 x64, Ubuntu 13.10 for the spare, which is completely dedicated to this project I've undertaken. When Installing & Booting OS X Bios Settings Load Defaults Sata Controller: AHCI When working with Windows Bios Settings Load Defaults Sata Controller: RAID Anyhow, as mentioned, I can install OS X no problem. Once I reboot in to Windows 8.1 x64 installer I'm presented with the error, upon partitioning My support request here isn't to try and get Windows to install on GPT Disk, but the opposite. Any support for creating the Mavericks Installer so it anticipates an MBR disk? When I go through the USB Installer creator, it prompts me to select if I will be using MBR partitioning. I clicked Yes Everything works fine, I boot into bios, select AHCI, continue through partitioning, using the scheme outlined above. Once I get to choose my disk, OS X, I'm presented with a message that I forgot to note, but the message is complaining about how the partition OS X is NOT GUID Partition Table. I've done everything a logical fella who has been building and breaking, mostly breaking but you know how that is lol, with pc's for 18 years would do. Carefully retraced my steps from Creation of installer to the very end described just now. I'd like to avoid needing a Sata switch, KVM Switch style, for the two HDD's if I could as I can't seem to locate any, and my skills designing circuits are lacking, but present. OS X install with MBR partitioning? My goal is to Dual boot, I'll run through my troubles with alpha male Bootloader syndrome after I can get them both installed. Lol, sorry I have the habit of writing novels. Any other info just ask, I'm sure I can get it Thanks in advance Advanttage E6410SysRep.htm
  24. Hi! Im using 10.9.2 (installed with myHack on custom pc) and i'd like to ask a question about the Launchad. I know if i press the control key on the keyboard, the icons in the Launchpad are begin to tremble, and appears a cross to remove the icon. Well i have not this cross. The icons are shaking, but i can't remove any icon. Yes there are several program to remove the icons or groups, but i would be happy if i can use the system's feature for this. Example Thanks!
