Hi.  It;s been a while since I played with myhackintosh.  I'm running SL 10.6.8 on a

P5Q3 Deluxe.

 

I wanted to upgrade to Mavericks, but when I go to the app store to download it I get

"An unknown error has occured."

 

I've tried for a couple of hours now to get around this, but I have been unable to download Mavericks.

 

Is there any chance you could send me a link to the downloaded Mavericks installer?

I wanted to upgrade to Mavericks, but when I go to the app store to download it I get

"An unknown error has occured."

I solved it by adding "EthernetBuiltIn" in my boot-file. I used "Chameleon Wizard" to edit the boot-file. There is an extra option to add that string to the boot-file. After a restart I was able to download Apps and Mavericks from the App Store. 

 

And make sure that your smbios.plist is set up too. You can edit it too with Chameleon Wizard. I choosed an iMac that matches my PC-configuration. There shoulld be one configuration with an E8400 CPU if I remember correctly. That should match you setup pretty well.

I'm not too familiar with Chameleon Wizard, but i did install it and I already had EthernetBuiltIn in

my org.chameleon.boot.plist.

 

I changed my SMBIOS to Imac with almost exactly same configuration as my rig.

 

I will reboot and test to see what happens.


well, I tried with the following from CW and still get the same error message trying to download.

Try to link the smbios.plist to the org.chameleon.boot.plist. You can do that by checking "SMbios.plist" in the "org.chameleon.Boot"-editor and search for the smbios.plist by hitting the "+"-symbol and save it then reboot.

 

(Removed the last part of my answer as you are still on 10.6 and don't have a Mavericks-installer, sorry :-P ) 

 

And another edit:

Try to use one of the premade SMbios.plist that you can choose in the editor. As far as I know the most common problem for this issue is that the App-store can't verify your PC as an official Mac. Using one of the pre-mades will ensure that you have an serial-number for your Hackintosh, etc...

Hm, that's uncool. Maybe you can find some help in those threads: http://www.insanelym...e-login-errors/ and http://www.insanelym...-for-mavericks/

 

Maybe it's also an good idea to start a new thread about this issue in the 10.6 Post-Installation section :) .

Try my SMBios.plist and org.chameleon.boot.plist and dsdt.

I will give your files a shot and report back later today.

 

Just getting the install dmg is really proving to be a hassle for me but I'll keep working at it.

 

Thanks.

Also check under "About tis Mac" whether your networkcard in en0. If it is listed as en1 it won't work.

In that case You have to remove all networkadapters in systemsettings - network und also delete these 2 files:

Networkinterfaces.plist & Perferences.plist

They are located under library-perfrences-systemconfiguration.

Reboot and ad your networkadapters again starting with the card you want to use for Internet access. Now it is en0.

 

Had this problem yesterday and couldn't remember how I fixed it the last time. :)

 

*Update concerning Sound*

 

The patched dsdt solution together with  ad2000b.kext version 12E47 is definetly working.

Thanks again Mr Mag00 for the help.

I just replaced my files with yours and Mavericks is downloading as I type.

 

Anything I should be aware of with your files?

 

Once downloaded, I will attempt upgrade to Mavericks.

 

Thanks for your assistance.  I may be requesting further assistance after Mavericks install.

You have to do a clean install. I don't recommend you to update your system. Don't worry about my files :) Follow the guide ;)

OK, I formatted my USB stick.  Ran Pandora.  Got screen attached.  Replied Y.

System rebooted and hung.  Log attached.

Have you tried booting your pc without USB attached? You have virtual box installed?

No the systems just stops there.  I removed Virtual Box and will try again.

 

I have a question though.  In you rguide you say "Mount Mac OS X Mavericks image. Close the windows that shows up

and open Pandora app".  Do you mean double click on "Install OX X Mavericks" and shrink the resulting window?

If you have downloaded Mavericks from Mac App Store, you will have just the "Install Mavericks.app", so you have only to drop the icon into Pandora.
