I am trying to install Mavericks 10.9 GM on my Vostro 1700. I cannot get it to recognize internal hard drives. I was able to install it on a USB hard drive but it will not work with internal. I have tried changing the AppleACPIPlatform, AppleAHCIPort, and IOPCIFamily kexts to the 10.8.4 versions, but all that does is cause me to have a kernel panic associated with AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement. My BIOS is set to AHCI.
I made my own installer using only my DSDT and a few kexts that I used for my ML installer. I seem to be having the same issue when upgrading to 10.8.5 from 10.8.4, that's why I decided to give 10.9 a try.
When installed to and booting from a USB hard drive, I get working trackpad with 2 finger scrolling and tapping, QE/CI with Geforce 8600M GT, Ethernet, Bluetooth, Audio, Microphone/Line-In, Sleep, iCloud, and iMessage.
Issues that I know I'm having are, of course, no internal hard drives, I have an HP BCM4322MC wireless card rebranded to Apple Airport that shows up in OS X but only gives me connection failed when I connect to my router, and no SD Card.
Any help figuring out my issues would be appreciated, just let me know any information that you need.
Thanks in advance.
