Hello everyone, this is my first time on this forum and it's pretty interesting how thinghs work around. To tell the truth I've never tried/experienced Hackintosh, so sorry for being noob. This is my Laptop specs, it seems that the cpu and gpu are pretty close/same with the new Macbook Pro 2013 2.0 GHz (i7-4750HQ) quad-core Intel Core i7 Crystalwell with 6 MB on-chip L3 cache(15") + Nvidia GeForce GT 750M with 2 GB GDDR5 memory. (15", 2.3GHz) Model: Asus n550JV - 15.6 inch Full HD (1920*1080) Ram: 8 GB LDDR3 - 1600 Mhz (Kingston) Cpu: Intel I7-4700HQ Haswell Gpu: Nvidia Geforce GT 750m (4GB) HD: 1 TB (5200 rpm) (yeah I know, slow like hell) More detailed info see in attachment. Update1: I made a bootable usb with myHack 3.3 + changed kernel with custom one 10.9 Ivy Bridge-E & Lapic Fix Kernel (http://www.osx86.net/files/file/3606-109-ivy-bridge-e-lapic-fix-kernel/) I have succeeded to boot in USB but unfortunately I got stuck at Pthread support aborts when sync kernel primitives misused Update2: Made a new Bootable Usb using Clover together with the custom kernel + moded efi files. Installation started and succeeded. BUT everytime I try to boot OS X, I keep rebooting after something like "uuid loading ....................................................................++++++++++++++" So could someone please help me? Is it because my Smbios is wrong? And if it is, what should I do to get a good working one? UPDATE 3: Succesfully booted in Mac Os X 10.9 ;D - Wifi & bluetooth doesn't work. (bluetooth works rarely (20 % chance it works)) - Sound also doesn't work but it's fixable by moding with kexts etc. ( haven't connected with internet so is it possible that it will after connection 1* time?) (fixed sound) - About, finder, configuration, wallpaper, live wallpaper, mounting all works perfectly. - It's performing truth to be told butter smooth, and I booted with all cores (4). But it's working whole time on max speed (2.4 ghz) so that needs to be fixed or at least limited to +- 2 ghz so it would use less power & make less heat. - Battery stats could not be seen (0% whole time) (fixed with patched kext) - sleep doesn't work. - shutdown, restart works - Tried iMessage and App store, worked fine without internet (lol). That's it, can't think or find another thingh to mention. GUIDE for OS X 10.9 on Asus n550JV (note this may not be detailed/complete enough to succeed): - First make a usb stick with restore from OS X Mavericks (search google, it's almost same everywhere ) - Then make a clover bootable stick using Clover v2: https://mega.co.nz/#!csACCYwI!Cx-GC02... guide: - Follow everything in that youtube vid exactly, because it could turnout differently if you don't - Use these modded EFI files and overwrite/merge with EFI partition of usb (credit goes to my russian friend amocc for his amazing work): https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BxmvHU43bIiQS3hTTHNFem1iVnc/edit?usp=sharing amocc's profile: http://www.osx86.net/user/508444-amokk/ Another discussion on forum: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/292368-laptop-reboots-after-root-device-uuid-is/page-3?do=findComment&comment=1959561 - Reboot system with usb plugged, check if USB LEGACY is on. And get in bios/efi or whatever and change boot priority for example UEFI: CLOVER boot should be the first one to boot. - Clover bootloader will show up, go to Mac Os installer (or what it is called) and press space than go to without caches and press enter. - Installer will show up, make a Mac Os Extended Journaled partition by going to Utilities than Disk Utility. - Instal, REBOOT back to Installer (trust me). IMPORTANT: Launch Terminal and give these command (change YOUR_Partition!): cp /mach_kernel "/Volumes/YOUR_Partition/mach_kernel" ++++++++++++++++ THEN RENAME mach_kernel to mac_kernel --> mv mach_kernel mac_kernel ++++++++++++++++OR goto your folder of EFI bootloader(EFI-> CLOVER -> Config.plist) and change mac_kernel to mach_kernel - Reboot into OS X (not installer) using without caches. - After configuring your system with username, password you'll appear on desktop. - Now you'll need to use different kexts to fix several issues: For audio go to this link: http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=355 Use the latest one, I used VoodooHDA_v284.zip Than you should edit info.plist in VoodooHDA.kekst ... ___ Will continue guide...
