It's been a long time since I've actually "been here". Great to see you are keeping our Hacs alive!!! Awesome work and contribution Yehia Amer and everyone's friend, Taptun!!! I haven't looked at everyone's post, but for sure see a lot of old friends! : )
I am weighing whether I should create a new guide focusing on a clean install of Mavericks 10.9.2. What does everyone think? Is there even a need for such a thing? Seems like A LOT has changed!!! Maybe it's not so difficult anymore.
I'm in the process of building a new Hac with an older ASUS Maximus Formula (I) board and Mavericks 10.9.2, and MAN has it been a pain in the @55!!!!! I thought it would be easy with all the new advances in bootloaders and things, but... HOLY SMOKE... I'm ready to KILL myself! Looks like I'm just finally getting it to a point where I can claim "winning", which I then found myself saying... "I'm going to have to create a guide for this!"
I hadn't booted OS X on my DV8 for over two years, and when I did, it was all borked up; so I used my own guides and tools to reinstall and was very happy to find it actually all worked, first time, and I was up and running again (I'm on it right now in fact). That's of course because I wrote the guides and built the tools with and for this machine. : P Sorry to all those who tried to make it work for their machines and couldn't. As soon as I finished v2.00... Apple was releasing 10.7.0 and Intel released new CPUs and chips that changed everything! I no longer had the time to start all over and solve all the new issues. : ( I was spent! (Lesson learned: DON'T start putting together a new guide at the END of an OS X release cycle).
Anyway, what does it take now in order for us to be able to FINALLY use Apple vanilla kernels on our HP's? I've read a couple things here and there, but if someone could "fast-track it" for me (refer me to a post with the details), that would be GREAT! I assume it's just a matter of using a version Chameleon or Clover from a certain version forward.
Anyway, very nice to say hi to you all again, and I may just have to throw some guides together... for the NEXT time I'll have to use them!!!
