Holla!

Just starting a thread so we can keep track of what works and what doesn't when it comes to installing 10.9 on your PC.

So far, Charmeleon r2243 is a no-go for 10.9 support, it will make you crash on start.

Anything else?

It is going to take me 22 minutes, and a CCC backup, but very excited to try and report back soon.

I'm going to try opening up the ESD and restoring the Base system to a flash drive. But I noticed that the ESD no longer contains a mach_kernel. Not sure how to work around this.

Awesome, thanks for that; never would have thought to look there! With that said I can't seem to get into the installer. If I boot -v, it typically freezes after a lot of nonsense about bluetooth and ethernet. After sitting there for about 45 seconds, the system suddenly panics, with what looks to be something to do with HPET. I tried ForceHPET=Yes, but that didn't seem to do anything. I've also tried with various combinations of -v, -x, npci=0x3000, ForceHPET=Yes, and even GraphicsEnabler. It seems that the bootloader doesn't like my systems (one being socket 1366 on X58, the other being socket 1155 on Z77)

This is using the method above, which involves replacing the 'boot' file on the root of the installer after installing Chameleon.

I can't get into installer either... I restored the base system to usb. I can get to the bootloader, but then just spinning gear.

-f stands for = avoid loading kernel chaches.

Probably you have installed some custom kexts and forgot to run Kext-Utilities or similar to rebuild those for the next boot.

No

Just clean bottable USB... Also now clean installed 10.9 does not want to boot without -f and does not want to start after new reboots... So looks like something in chameleon... For now -f working till update....

I've experienced this as well on my build. -f did the trick, i am thinking the installer makes a kernel cache of it's own for fastest first boot.

Keep in mind that this is a user-modified Charmeleon, all the possible optimization for 10.9 are no where near completion
