Kernel panic after installing mavericks 10.9

Kernel panic after installing mavericks 10.9

Hi, I've had a hard time installing niresh mavericks on my machine 


Pentium D 

3 gb ram

80 gb sata hdd

512 mb nividia gs 8400 ddr2

Every time i tried to boot the usb with some bootflags it gave me a black screen so i downloaded broyka patched kernel and replaced it with mach_kernel file in the usb . Now i could reach the installer and install the osx 10.9 even without boot flags .

Now the only problem is that I cannot boot to the macintosh HD ,now its stuck on the apple logo and wont show any spinning wheel or mouse its just a n apple logo screen 

I replaced mach_kernel file in hdd to broyka's patched kernel 

With -v it gives me a black screen with nothing on it ( cursor or spinning wheel )

And with -v -f i get a kernel panic 20226387_495797350756604_1211846498_o.jp

Boot loader = chamelion (standard)

If i boot to usb the installer works fine .

Loos like a kext eror or a missing dependencie try to boot with -x for safe mode it disabled dangerous kexts to boot mac without issues and maybe by updating or find another or delete the highlighted kext that is causing a kernel panic


try also when you setup the mac try also with: -v -x xcpm kext-dev-mode=1 maybe that should initialize all kexts.

Mostly a kernel panic will come if a kexts is required for booting the system is corrupted, missing or you must to update the kext because its outdated or you need to downgrade the kext to older version using kext wizard doesnt matter to install older or newer kexts supported for your lapotp model or desktop and the right mavericks so your system could boot normally.


i looked up for ya the patched kernel you use i think its not supported with your cpu and i think that will only cause more problems.


Bronzovka's (A.K.A. Bronyas) 10.9.0 mach_kernel_rc7



  • AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 250
  • AMD Opteron™ Processor 3350 HE
  • AMD FX-8320
  • AMD FX-8350
  • AMD FX-8150
  • AMD Athlon™ X2 340
  • AMD Phenom II X4 955 [Black Edition]
  • AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
  • Intel Paxville Xeon DP
  • AMD A8-4500m APU
  • Others (Maybe others like i3 i5 i7 maybe not pentium D) im not sure but try to use the vanilla way.

And the kernel extensions one of them are faulty.

Like it says kernel extension in backtraces.

i think you found your problem by download and replace the corrupted com.apple.kec.CoreCrypto kext which maybe can be found in /System/Library/Extensions so first try to reinstall from usb with original niresh kernel dont use amd kernel because you have intel and after it says installation complete... restart ETA like 10 seconds click restart you see a chameleon bootloader so as you mentioned in your problem then try -v -x xcpm npci=0x2000 dart=0

then setup the mac and reboot without -x 

see if that works.
