I wonder if anyone using a real Mac has had this issue...if so then I guess it'll hopefully be fixed in the next DP. If not I'll just have to move everything back to my ML partition til the Golden Master comes out and more hackintoshers are playing with it :(

I had a problem after upgrading to DP4, my GAZ77-DS3H couldn't continue booting after a Bluetooth message of something...

 

Then I noticed that with the -f flag the Extensions were not listing at startup, so I added UseKernelCache=No and then the installation completed without a problem.

 

I think I read that the -f option is no longer used.

 

Found it : Common boot options for Chimera, Chameleon, #####, iAtkos, and more  ;)

 



-f
Ignores kext caches during bootup on Mac OS X Snow Leopard. If you did not install a kext properly (usually because you forgot to run System Utilities in ##### after installing a new kext), your kext cache will be damaged, and Mac OS X might become unbootable unless you use this boot flag. The kext cache was replaced by the kernel cache in Mac OS X Lion, so theoretically, the -f boot flag should no longer work; however, this boot flag can still help some Hackintoshes boot (for reasons unknown).

I just tried booting without -f and, unfortunately, it was the same result :/ thanks for the suggestion though! I think I'll try with and without -f along with some other combinations to see if I can get to the desktop.

You're not clear about UseKernelCache=No have you tried it ?

My difference with you is that I use a NVidia card not the HD4000. And I didn't have directly a blinking cursor but the verbose listing.

 

In fact my boot line to fix my problem was -f -v UseKernelCache=No npci=3000 darkwake=0 although I don't think the two last had any use.

 

I installed Mavericks with a Pandora's Box installer and upgraded Chameleon to the last version before the DP4.

I tried adding UseKernelCache=No and it still doesn't work. As well as your boot line (except with npci=0x2000 instead of npci=0x3000).

 

And actually I'm using a GeForce GT 630, wanted a little more than HD3000.

 

I created the Mavericks USB manually and updated to DP4 using the App Store. I haven't updated Chameleon since the first working Mavericks compatible Chameleon was released. So I guess I'll give updating that a shot and see if it makes any difference...

Yayyyy!!! finally got DP4 to boot!! I know others have tried unplugging their monitor sometime during the boot process. I tried that, but I unplugged it AFTER the black screen with the cursor appeared. This time I unplugged it right after the boot loader screen disappeared. I waited 5 minutes (probably doesn't need to be that long) and plugged it in and the "Completing Mavericks Installation" screen appeared!!! So right now I'm typing this on Mavericks DP4 running just fine!! lol just hopefully Apple will fix this in the neXt DP. I read somewhere else that it happened on an external monitor on someone's Mac Mini so I'm sure it will be fixed. Til then I'll just unplug and replug the HDMI cable every time I wanna boot....lol. Thanks a bunch for the support!!!

I think it is related to this:
  kernel [0]: flow_divert_kctl_disconnect (0): disconnecting group 1
any ideas?

having problem also with booting, white cursor, black screen when hdmi monitor was attached. Temporary fix is to boot without the HDMI (single monitor is working fine through DVI connector), and just plugin the hdmi after i was logged in on maverick

Me too. I'm using DP2 and run the DP4 combo update. Instead of a Restart button after installation finished, it still show Continue and Go back. Restart system and it can't boot, "CPU halted" then shutdown every time. Is that really a "combo" update? Because I updated from DP1 to DP2 without any problem.

NDA aside, you have developer account?
 
I have not and I've been updating since DP1. Unfortunately now in the DP4 update does not appear on my Mac App Store.
 
Anyone experienced this? Did Apple changed the authentication process?
