This is my first attempt at a mackintosh.

 

This is my hardware:     MSI B75IA-E33 with core i3-3225  and 8GB Corsair vengeance LP

 

I'm following the guide at clover boot.weebly.com. I have made the Clover USB stick with FakeSMC, HFSPlus and NullCPUPowermanagement. 

I can boot into Clover but when I try to install Mavericks I get the "grey apple" screen flash up briefly, then it crashes and the MSI logo appears on the screen, then it goes back to Clover and continues in the same vein, sometimes with but mostly without the "grey apple" screen.

 

I've attached a picture of what I see before the crash.

 

I'm not sure where to look for clues as to what's going wrong. I cannot find any logs that might help. Should I think about using a DSDT? 

 

Any help anyone can give would be very much appreciated.

I've made some progress with this, in case anyone is interested.

 

After much reading I discovered that MSI boards need a bios patch. Very nervous about this, but used the excellent PMPatch to create a patched bios and flashed it. This was easier than I thought it would be. Then re-created my USB install stick with Clover and Mavericks and off we go again... and then my USB stick gave up the ghost. One new USB stick later...

 

and still not reaching the install screen, although now crashing further along the process, after the FakeSMC messages. This is the message:

 

dbinit: done [96MB total pool size, (64/32) split]

pthread support ABORTS when sync kernel primitives are misused

 

Any ideas anyone?
