I have a AMD Phenom II x4 965 (black), and Asus Gforce 210 Silent, running on a Gigabyte GA-880GM-D2H (rev. 1.x), AMD880G Chipset. Running Mavericks 10.9.1



I tried everything to get mavericks to boot, but it would only boot to a white screen, sometimes the console spit out a bunch of "junk", but no kernel panic, that is until I came across this thread and kernel: http://www.osx86.net...0#comment_75955



I have full internet, working sound, full graphics acceleration and HD resolution, and I can run the chess app and VLC, handbrake etc. with no problems at all.



[Edit]

I have tested iMessage, works great, iCloud dose not gives communications errors. I will post my findings on Photoshop once I install it...



[Edit]

I have tested adobe Photoshop CC and it runs perfect...

FaceTime dose not work, gives error processing registration....



For anyone having issues with the installer as I did, do this:





You will need:



1) Freshly set up copy of Mavericks on VMware with AMD CPU

2) Carbon Copy Cloner

3) SATA to USB adapter or SATA Drive enclosure

4) Chameleon Wizard

5)mach_kernel : http://www.osx86.net...el-nvidia-work/

[Edit]
I have attached the kernel I used check the bottom of this Topic

Follow the following steps:



1) Mount the USB Adapter/Enclosure in VMWARE



2) Clone Mavericks to the USB HDD using Carbon Copy Cloner



3) Navigate to S/L/E remove all VMware kexts



4) Use Chameleon Wizard to install the bootleader to the usb drive



5) Navigate to /Extra on the USB drive and Right-click org.chameleon.Boot.plist select open with and choose other, navigate to were you saved chameleon wizard and click open, I have the following checked:

a)GUI

b)Timeout: 5

c)Legacy Logo

d) Kernel: mach_kernel

e) Use Kernel Cashe

f) ncpi=x3000 (if your system freezes at [PCI CONFIGURATION], disable this or use x2000)

g) SMBios.plist: /Extra/smbios.plist

h) Restart Fix

i) Graphics enabler=Yes

6) Navigate to you USB drive, and delete the current mach_kernel, replace with the attached mach_kernel (for NVidia users)



7) Reinstall the SATA drive back into its intended Computer.



8) Try to boot (this is were I had issues, I had to use google to get past them)



9) Once your booted to your desktop, install VoodooHDA for your sound, and try lnx2mac drivers for your Ethernet ( I found that using separate installers for voodoo and lnx2mac worked better then multi-beast on AMD Mavericks



10) Enjoy



This is my first MAC tutorial, please pardon my spelling

Successfully used Above Method to get Mavericks running on the following PC:

 

Mainboard: MSi 970A-G436

Chipset: AMD 970

CPU: AMD FX-6300 OC @ 4.5Ghz

16 GB GSKILL DDR3 Ripjaws ram

GPU 1:AMD Radeon HD7770 (working with full acceleration, native kexts)

GPU 2:AMD Radeon R7 250 (only works on minimal mode, no kexts found)

 

If anyone has any ideas how to get the Radeon R7 250 working it would be greatly apreciated
