Hey guys,

 

I would like to thank everyone that has contributed information to this thread (especially eng_mat, the OP). 

 

Because of you I have a fully working Mac OSX 10.9 (Mavericks) installation going.

 

Can't get the 540M to work but that's allright.

 

I learned a lot along the way, when I started didn't even know what kext files were. Without this thread I would have been hopefully lost. 

 

For everyone that needs the Wifi drivers for Atheros AR9002wb-1ng, look here: http://www.osx86.net...less-half-size/

 

Can't thank you guys enough, Mac OSX rocks!

 

@flitskikker I have an N53SV - SZ404 and 10.9 is rocking solid so you can try too I guess.

 

FYI I didn't use the Kext the OP provided but used the Intel 3000 ones that were installed with Mavericks.

 

:D

To anyone with Atheros / Wi-Fi problems; this kext package is the only thing that works for me:

You'll need both! DeviceMergeNub will inject a Wi-Fi country code. Otherwise you won't be able to connect to networks.

 

 

@Rick Lamers: Which kexts from where did you use exactly? Are the Intel 3000 kexts untouched? Alvast bedankt! :)

I have a N53SV and I'm having some troubles getting the FN keys to work.. I tried installing the kext, but no dice...

Also how do I install the DSDT? do I just overwrite the file or?

Hey guys!!!

I wanted to ask for a help. I want to start using Clover and i tried to make my own dsdt to get best, but i didn't manage to fix all the warnings((((. I use DSDTEditor. Of course some of errors i manage to fix but half of them not. I used dsdt file from this thread but the system didn't boot up after that(( I wanted to ask, if anyone could help me and fix my dsdt? I'he created it with help of Aida64. I wold very appreciated for any help) Please find attached my untouched dsdt file))))

 

My laptop is N53sv - i7-2670QM - 8GB Ram - HD3000 - GT540M (1Gb) 

 

I have a question about UEFI bios and boot procedure with Clover. Does anybody in this thread use it? I would like to know an opinion or pros and cons, if yes or not too. I'he read articles about how to work with Clover and i knew that for the UEFI bios we just need use another version of Clover. Am i right? I didn't find clear answer on my question. Is this the only one difference?

 

Thank you)

Hmmmmmmmm it's great, but how? Could you give me an advice please or maybe you could make some tutorial how you run your system with Clover? It would be awesome!)))) I didn't even manage to boot Mac os 10.9 from flash usb to install!(((( I used different patches but no luck(((( Something happening with image, it going fuzzy after about minute of booting( I stuck here and i don't know how to fix it.

I have attached photo of my screen that stops me to proceed. I suppose it should be the screen where disc utility and other stuff
