I'will be very grateful if someone could spare a few minutes to listen to my problem.

 

Well I used to install OS X to a virtual machine. But I decided to install Mavericks to my physical computer. Since I have no available USB stick, I decided to launch the installation from the hard disk.

My computer is a customed Windows 7 PC and here is the list of my hard ware:

CPU: Intel i5-2300 Sandybridge@2.9GHz

Motherboard: Gigabyte HA65M-d2h-B3(rev 1.0) (HA65M does not mean that the chipset is h65, actually this motherboard has a h61 chipset)

Graphics: nVdia 9600 GT, 512M GDDR3 cache

RAM: 4GB ADATA DDR3 1333(Single Channel)

HD: Seagate Barracuda 12 500GB ,16 MB cache(MBR partition table,ahci enabled in bios)

No optical drives

Input device: PS2 keyboard and Logitech Wireless Trackball

Nothing exotic,huh? 

 

I installed chemelon 2.2 svn 2281 through windows installer and I dumped mavericks installation disk into a logical drive. Then I deleted amd kexts ,added fakeSMC(2.5) ,NullCPUPowerManagement, PS2kexts ,patched mbr patch and rebooted to chameleon. NO DSDTS WERE USED(Will this be the point?).

Chameleon booted successfully and the partition I dumped was found by chameleon.So I selected the partition and entered with -v -f .

Chameleon loaded all the files then this occurred:

Attached File  IMG_20140122_125751.jpg   156.63KB   9 downloads

Then the machine stopped running and stayed there,doing nothing. The HDD indication lights were not flashing also.

I wondered if it was my graphics card's fault so I tried Graphics Enabler and UseNvdiaROM (I did extracted the rom needed with Lavalys Everest and put it to the Extras folder) however the same error occured. The message on the screen was EXACTLY the same, yes, EXACTLY.And this didn't change even after I removed PCI-E graphics and started to use the built-in HD2000. By the way, adding -x was not useful too.

I did a few researches on the Internet however I didn't find much useful. According to my understanding, other guys might see this when they boot into their hacintosh but this don't stop them booting into their OS(In other words, it is a harmless message).

My friends suggested me turn off VT and I turned it off but the goddamn error still exists!

Later I deleted Applekeystore.kext and the computer stopped at that screen as usual,the only thing changed is that the message "Applekeystore Starting" was gone.

 

Am I alone? Is there anyone having the same problem or knowing the solution?

 

p.s: i don't have an existed OS X on my computer. And I was quite curious about the guides in which an existed OS X is needed. Why do I need to install mac on my PC if I have a mac installed?

I had the same problem, though I didn't reach it the same way. The problem was 'DropSSDT=Yes'. Boot with it set to 'No' as an argument.

I ran into this same issue just yesterday trying to get my desktop (Intel DH67GD) to boot a Clover-based USB installer. Originally installed via Chameleon, but migrated to Clover, I wanted to see if I could do a pure Clover install. I was able to get it to boot with my patched DSDT, but not without (and I kind of wanted to understand why).

It turned out the CPU SSDTs included by the OEM were not appreciated by OS X... Of course will fully patched DSDT and CPU SSDT in place, it worked fine. To fix it, I had to add this SSDT:
DefinitionBlock ("iASLMU8I11.aml", "SSDT", 2, "INTEL ", "CPUx  ", 0x00000012)
{
    Scope (_PR)
    {
        Processor (CPU0, 0x00, 0x00000410, 0x06) {}
        Processor (CPU1, 0x01, 0x00000410, 0x06) {}
        Processor (CPU2, 0x02, 0x00000410, 0x06) {}
        Processor (CPU3, 0x03, 0x00000410, 0x06) {}
        Processor (CPU4, 0x04, 0x00000410, 0x06) {}
        Processor (CPU5, 0x05, 0x00000410, 0x06) {}
        Processor (CPU6, 0x06, 0x00000410, 0x06) {}
        Processor (CPU7, 0x07, 0x00000410, 0x06) {}
    }
}
Then I used the DropOem option in config.plist to drop all OEM tables (all of them are CPU related on this machine, so no need to pick and choose). With that SSDT in place, I was able to boot the installer with Clover and full power management (using Generate for p/c states in Clover config.plist)

Hope that helps...
