So after installing 10.9.2 in virtualbox and then upgrading to 10.9.4 with a combo update with rc3 all seems well except if I try and view "About This Mac" from the apple menu. Finder seems to reboot after this error

For rebooting Finder try to paste VoodooTSCSync for AMD cpus, maybe that will work for you. About shutting down I think it's not a problem with kernel. I have FX too and restart and shutdown working very well :)

Well using VoodooTSCSync changed the error

And yes I don't think the KP on shutdown is related to the kernel but I lack the knowledge and experience to deduce what the issue is sadly.

 

Thanks

Maybe you should try paste System.kext from Bronya's kernel package? Or install osx on real hard drive, not in virtualbox. This will be faster, easier and more comfortable for you and your amd machine ;)

P.S. You don't have to use the newest kernel from Bronya. You can use previous Bronya's kernels, they working very well too with 10.9.0-10.9.4 versions :)

I have tried both the one from MyHack and the latest one available (updated 08.07.2014)

I have swapped the System kext with Bronya's. The reason I am using a virtualbox setup is it seemed Bronya was working on trying to make it work a little better so I thought I would give it a shot as I have dozens of virtual machines. And the reason for using latest kernel is this is the closest I have been to being able to get anything past 10.9.2 to load. 10.9.3-4 are not friendly to my rigs for some reason.

 

It seems coming here is just causing all kinds of trouble, and I'm sorry about that I just enjoy making OS X load on amd as a hobby and only have been at it for about 4 months of actual work. But thanks for the help regardless.

Is it possible to use VoodooPState with the latest kernel? I was under the impression that the System.kext with the latest kernel was patched for VoodooPState, but I must have misread... When I use VoodooPState My CPU only goes up to 1600 MHz.
