The wifi, Bluetooth, and Ethernet are all built into the motherboard, which is the Asus z87-deluxe. Is that just hopeless?

It also seems that I'm still stuck booting from my flashdrive which is fairly frustrating. Any ideas why that might be or how to fix it? When I try booting without the flashdrive it gives me a black window for a little bit before booting into windows

Can you upload the following file:

http://rampagedev.wo...-your-own-dsdt/

 

Also make sure you compress the files so you can upload them... and please list BIOS version. Thanks.

Sure, give me two minutes here. I am not sure how to upload a file?

 

 

Edit: I have the zip file made, but I'm unsure of how to share that with you? Also, I am using a patched BIOS, how do I tell exactly what version?


I ended up just putting it in my google drive, here's a link: https://docs.google....dit?usp=sharing

Install this in your extra folder and then restart. Post a new IOreg after restart. Thanks.

 

Also what BIOS version is this?

So here's an update:

 

1. I still can't boot into OSX from anything but this flashdrive. If I try to boot my computer any other way it just stalls briefly before booting into my Windows HDD.

2. The clock speed is working properly, however, when I restart it resets the time the clock thinks that it is.

3. I don't have functional networking (bluetooth/wifi/ethernet)

This is the last thing I see before boot (note this is booting from the flash drive, because I can't boot otherwise) with only the tag "-v":

if you have possibility to return on desktop, go to extra and change the theme by the one on the usb flash drive; after that try to boot

 

in your hdd and type this  flag

GraphicsEnabler=No PCIRootUID=0 -v -x

I will try that, although at this point I believe that my extra folder is the one from the flashdrive entirely.

 

I also can't figurew out how to run those boot flags when I am booting directly from my hdd

 

 

Edit: I tried all of that with no results

replace the extra original and just change the theme because I think its the themes that is unableling you to typing flag

Ok, here's what I did. I replaced all of that stuff. But I don't think we are talking about the same place to type flags. I can only get to a real boot loader when I choose the flashdrive as a boot device from the motherboard. If I choose the hdd that I have 10.9 on I get a black screen with a flashing cursor briefly before it says, "boot0: Done" which is referring to the drive that I have windows on, because it immediately boots into windows after that. Does that make sense?

You need a more up to date boot loader then the one you are installing post install.

I'm pretty sure I'm using an up to date boot loader?... If not, where would I find that?

Everything currently boots off of my actual HDD now!

 

I had to unmount my drive with osx on it and follow this:

 

4. Reboot system back into Maverikcs  installer.
5. Run Disk Utility and unmount the drive you installed OS Lion on.
6. Launch Terminal and execute the following command:
 

Code:
dd if=/usr/standalone/i386/boot1h of=/dev/disk0s2

7. Exit Terminal
8. Reboot Normally

 

Tomorrow, I will spend some more time checking what is and isn't working. I've read something about a graphics thing where you test by seeing if there's a ripple somewhere? But, I can't remember what it was?... Does anyone know a test I can run to test if everything is running properly? 

 

I see in system profile that it thinks that my RAM is 1333, but I know that it's 1600, does this matter?

At also thinks that I am using a Xeon processor, does that matter?

 

Final note, it seems that the clock just doesn't run when the system is off. So when I boot back the clock is wherever it left off.
