First off, I'm new to this community. I've spent a few weeks trying to figure this out, and I have familiarized myself with just about everything I can. I've also read the forum rules, but if I messed anything up, please let me know.
Okay, so here's my issue. I have an AMD Phenom II x4 CPU in a Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P (I just upgraded from a GA-78LMT-USB3, since it didn't have UEFI) motherboard with a EVGA GTX 770 Classified GPU that I'm trying to install Mavericks onto (Using Niresh,as I don't have a Mac already.) I have configured my motherboard exactly how every tutorial says (though I only have the option to enable HPET, not force 64bit mode) and have been able to install OSX. I have tried it on a 2TB HDD (partitioned because I read OSX won't boot off of anything larger than 1TB) and my 120GB SSD.
All is good until I try to actually boot it. When I try to boot, i get an instant reboot. If, however, I try to boot with -x and -v, I can get all the way to "Starting Darwin x86_64" before I get the reboot.
Lots of research makes it seem like I need a different kernel (though, I'm using AMD64 when installing initially) but I'm not 100% sure, or 100% sure on how to do that.
I have tried every boot flag there is, in just about every combination. I have looked up how to do this specifically on my board, but haven't found any clear answers. I've also erased the drive and installed from scratch with a series of flags, again, in endless combinations to no avail.
If anyone has any ideas on what I could try, or if they think the kernel may be the issue, please let me know!
Also, if more detail is needed just let me know and I'll find out.
Thank you so much!
