  1. Well... you can forget about wifi and touchpad and most probably - camera as well. The rest seems doable and I'd give it a try if I were you, but don't expect everything to work oob
  2. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9sxFZaqAS_kcUlYNjBTTUUyeDA/edit This was floating around I'm sure it'll be helpful....
  3. Did you try to load the kext you used to use in Mavericks AFTER the system has already started? Also - in System report -> Networking - is your Ethernet adapter listed?
  4. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9sxFZaqAS_kcUlYNjBTTUUyeDA/edit Check your wifi adapter model. Very few of the ones out there are supported. You may need replacement => Approx. $30 (maybe less - depends on where you buy it)
  5. GraphicsEnabler=No .... otherwise I couldn't boot neither Mavericks nor Yosemite.
  6. I'd like to know if your NVidia is working. I have an Acer Aspire that I'm considering trying an OSX installation and I read somewhere that if you have both Intel HD graphics and descrete graphics then the NVidia(in my case) won't work at all. One more thing I'd like to ask is if you have bluetooth and if you do - did you get it to work somehow?
  7. All 4 cores active. After adding GraphicsEnabler=No to the .plist file everything works good. I'm not really sure if the CPU scales down, though. I think it's just always @ 3,4GHz Keep in mind this was a while ago and it was OSX 10.9.2 - I sold the machine, because I moved to a different country to study and I don't have it anymore, so I can't give you any additional information. Anyway, as far as I know this CPU model is natively supported so there shouldn't be any problems.
  8. The only way I figured out how to do it is to boot Yosemite off of my installer flash drive. I use chameleon as my primary bootloader and since I couldn't get Yosemite to boot from it... I just insert my USB installer (with Clover on it) and use it as a bootloader... it's way off from a perfect solution, but it's a working one... for me at least. ** Note that I have both Mavericks and Yosemite on the same HDD (different partitions)
  9. Erm... comming from a Haswell user - make your usb installer with different options (assuming you're using a working Mac/Hack to do it). I did mine 3 or 4 times before I got it to boot. Unfortunately I can't remember what were the working options for me.
  10. I found a very simple solution to my problem. It's a kernel patch I found on a 3rd party website and it worked like a charm. I could re-link it, but won't post it since I don't have the OP consent. It was just a matter of copy/pasting a few lines of perl code.
  11. I'll try it in the weekend. I simply don't have time to reinstall should anything go wrong right now. Thanks a lot for the tip, though! I've seen combo updates lying around, but never quite got their idea. Could you elaborate please? Cheers!
  12. Hello there! Below are my PC Specs: Intel Core i5-4670k CPU @ 3.8GHz AsRock Z87M Pro4 Motherboard 2x 4GB DDR3 1333MHz A-Data NVidia GeForce GTX 650Ti Boost OC (MSI Twin Frozr) 128GB SSD Intel 520 series 2x1TB WD Black 7200rpm 64MB Cache Now, Just to state the obvious - with the exception of: - My mic volume being extremely low - The need to add a kernel flag to achieve autoboot The machine works absolutely perfect right out of the box. Everything is buttery smooth and NICE! Never had any issues until I tried updating. This is what happened: 1. I updated from the Mac AppStore => System failure. 2. Reinstalled. Updated from the Mac AppStore > Followed the guide Devonic wrote > System failure. Totally unable to boot into OSX. 3. Reinstalled. Updated from the Mac AppStore > Followed another guide somewhere on the web (Don't remember which one really) => System Failure. Totally unable to boot into OSX. 4. Reinstalled. Did NOT do ANY updates whatsoever => Machine works perfectly well! I would just like to point out a few things to avoid some non-neeeded questions: Q: Why do write this? A: I promised Deepak I would, after exchanging a few messages and spamming the guide. Q: Did you try booting with -x -s -f -F -v xpcm-free etc. A: Yes. I tried every kernel flag in various combinations in between. No result whatsoever. Q: What do you mean "Unable to boot into OSX" A: Machine reboots. That's it. No errors, no nothing. Just a boot-loop. Q: Did you try patching some files? A: Yes. I re-wrote a lot of files! I even tried copying my entire "Extensions" folder and re-writing it after the update. Doesn't work! I tried the "SlowBootFix" thing, the "NoNcpi=" archive, etc. It just doesn't work on my machine. Q: Did you try using a different bootloader? A: Yes! I did try using Clover and Chameleon. No difference whatsoever. Any more questions I will be more than glad to answer. I don't think I'll be attempting a system update anytime soon though. I don't feel like reinstalling AGAIN. I'm sick of backing things up. If there were an option to rollback a system update from the installer itself - maybe.... Cheers! litttlegreen
  13. Hey guys! I had a perfectly good and smoothly running installation of Mavericks. However I WAS stuck at the "boot0:error" problem and decided to give chameleon a try. Installed it, rebooted and that was it. I am still unable to reboot into OSX. Tried a possible solution here: https://www.maconpc.com/topic/733-boot0-error/ with no luck whatsoever. Can you guys please help somehow? I don't get any errors. Just when I try to boot from my disk1s1 partition it sends me back to boot choice. I tried -x -v -f -F -s ... alltogether and separately.... Booting with argument xpcm-free -v outputs "cannot find xpcm-free; Press any key" My system specs: Core i5-4670K AsRock Z87M-Pro 2x 4GB DDR3-1333MHz A-Data Booting from a HITACHI HDD (for now) NVidia GTX 650Ti boost OC (MSI TwinFrozr) EDIT:Re-Installing OSX from my USB drive appears to have made things better. I can now boot, but only with GraphicsEnabler=No I really don't get it - same installation media, same Hardware, same Software - why the difference? Can anyone help me with this? I don't want to type GraphicsEnabler=No every time I boot up my computer.
  14. Are you guys considering laptop section? I think I'd be great. If someone succesfully installed OSX on a laptop I surely would want to know about it - model, specs, etc. Besides posting laptop kexts would be separate and therefore easier for people willing to attempt OSX installation on a laptop.
  15. Hey there! I installed 10.9 just last night and my GTX 650Ti OC Boost works out of the box with full acceleration and everything... I even played some League of Legends. It's a MSI TwinFrozer unit with 2 Gigs of memory, here's a link of the product: http://www.msi.com/product/vga/N650Ti-TF-2GD5-OC-BE.html#/?div=Specification If that is what you have (or similar enough I guess) - I think it should be working quite all right. Cheers!
