I don't want to polish myself, my greatness, so lets see how goes...
 
What you need:
 
A Mac compatible PC Hardware Compatibility List (HCL)
Window$ on that PC

First Pass
==========

Download everything

Install your VMware
Use unlocker to can create a virtual Mac.

 

Unpack

OS X Mavericks.vmdk

from the virtual machine from the Mavericks VMware pack to the VMware's Virtual Machine folder.

 

Default Path:

C:\Users\<your username>\Documents\Virtual Machines\

Start your patched VMware, and create a shiny new virtual machine.

 

Here is my Tutorial Album how to do that.

 

IMPORTANT! When you setting up your physical hard drive select your EMPTY HDD!

 

When you done that steps, you are ready to boot. Go on!

 

At first boot your Virtual Mac you must to do the inital setup like Language Settings etc.

 

If everything goes fine, you have a living (virtual) mac. In the next step i'll show you how can make physical mac from this virtual mac.

Second Pass
==========
 
If you don't have AppleID here is the time to create one.
 
Here is the tutorial how can create AppleID without credit card.
 
Open the App Store, search the Mavericks install app, and download (here neded the AppleID to authentication)
 
When the download finished, and the Mavericks installer started, don't do anything, simply quit from the installer.
 
Open launch pad (2nd icon on the dock with a Rocket icon) start typing:
 
DU...
this will shows you the Disk Utility. Open it.
 
Create a GUID partition  onto your physical disk (probably grey HDD icon, and the name something like "VMware...")
 
when done, quit from DiskUtility
 
Open Finder -> Application folder -> there will be the Mavericks installer.
 
Start install Mavericks, when aksing where install Mavericks simply select your physical HDD.
 
If everything goes fine, the installation starting in two pass.
 
At the first pass installing the base system this is the faster part of installation (several minutes)
 
After the first pass you need reboot your Virtual Mac.
 
If everything goes fine, the installation continues with second pass.
 
This is the longer part (approx 40 mins).
 
When done reboot your VM, but this is the tricky part!
 
DON'T LET BOOTING YOUR FRESH INSTALLED MAVERICKS!
 
Select Your Virtual Machine, and Power On to BIOS

In the BIOS Select booting device (the SATA (virtual) HDD - if you followed my tutorial)

Here comes the third pass - the post installation.

Third Pass

=========

 

You need some tools at this point:

 

 

Chameleon Wizard to install & set up Bootloader Description here

 

1. Open your CW on the bottom of first screen (Install) select your Physical Drive and hit install button

2. org.chameleon.boot set up your chameleon preferences Dont forget hit the SAVE / SAVE AS... button!

3. SMBIOS Set up SMBIOS.plist (iMac3,1 or Mac Pro 12,2 or whatever you want) SAVE!

4. drop your CW from virtual drive to physical

 

Shut Down your VMware.

 

Reboot Your PC with your new Hackintosh.

 

If you run into Black screen after the Grey Apple screen, Do Not Panic! Probably you have misconfigured GPU.

 

reset your PC, booting again, but this time with -s switch.

 

in single user mode give this commands line-by-line:

fsck -fy
mount -uw /mkdir /kext_backup
mv AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelSNB* ATI* GeForce* NVDA* /kext_backup

the filenames are Case Sensitive

reboot

...and this reboot is a command too! :D

 

Hopefully you can boot up your MacOs in 1024x768.

 

If everything goes fine, You Have A New Mavericks based Hackintosh.

 

Thank you for your attention!

 

Edit: if you want, use my script  to backup the Graphics kexts easy  :)  https://www.dropbox....ext script.zip

I cannot install the vwWare Mavericks image on Windows 7 32bit.  I set in VM preferences, others x64 and I set virtualizzazion VTx. In addition I can easily install linux x64 versions and Mountain Lion 10.8.3 with VMWare Workstation. But with the Mavericks with any setting it remains infinitely stuck on this startup screen

1. that wirtual Mac is in the post install state the first start a littlebit longer (but offcourse not forever). At the first time (if i remember correctly) i'm waiting approx 1 min. to startup.

 

2. every setting is similar to my "image tutorials"?

hm. on Windows 8 Enterprise x64 works correctly

 

1. The first start that virtual machine a littlebit longer (on core i3 2100, with 8 Gb ram approx 1 min.) -> offcourse not infinite

2. Are you probably Using a physical HDD. try remove that from the virtual machine.

3. Check [THIS THREAD] if you have virtualization problems

4. I do not know, you should check your BIOS settings (AHCI settings, HPET 64, etc...). Also Check this site for your BIOS settings

 

otherwise

 

If you want install a standalone Maverick, and you have a working Mountain Lion that also good for install.

That VMware image is a preinstalled Maverick.

 

That will use to install to physical drive.

 Solved! It was my mistake   :rolleyes:
 
I forgot to update the patch for OS X on VMware 10. My patch was up to version 9, after updated the patch Mavericks works fine.
In fact I had not seen before OS X 10.9 but only 10.8 in the the VM options, after patch, OS X 10.9 appeared immediately.
Thanks to Apple for this great piece of software  :)
