Hey Guys, first topic post! :thumbsup_anim:

 

I have a Samsung RF511 (I5 Sandy, 8GB RAM, Intel 3000 graphics) and It will not boot Mavericks without a USB bootloader still inside. :(

I have tried to install Chameleon and Enoch Multiple times to the HDD, but with no apparent luck, however... :)

I think that it has something to do with the F4 Recovery option at the POST or BIOS startup screen B), as when I pressed it,

It booted up chameleon ^_^, I clicked on OS X, and it crashed! :( So I formatted the HDD and tried again, nothing at all this time!

Don't know if this matters but...

When the USB is in it boots up but when its out, it gives me a Error:

"Reboot with proper boot device, or insert boot device and press a key"

 

If ANYONE knows of a solution, I will be of great appreciation :yes:

 

-UPDATE-

 

I have now followed this guide TO THE LETTER to boot Mavericks:

os-x-including-chameleon-dsdt-for-beginners-updated-for-mavericks/

However the USB still won't work ???

 

This is what the Chameleon Installer list says:

If you're getting that message, you haven't installed Chameleon properly. What are your BIOS options set to?

Use Chameleon. Clover doesn't work well. Your BIOS boot mode should be set to UEFI, and enable AHCI, VT-X and all that.

To solve the AGPM UnknownPlatform message, delete NVDAResman.next from /System/Library/Extensions in single-user mode, refresh kernel cache and reboot. Problem should be solved.

You said you can boot the system with the USB, correct? Boot to the installer, select Terminal and navigate to your OS X installation drive by typing this command:

cd /Volumes/"<Insert partition name between these quotation marks>"/System/Library/Extensions

Then type:

mv NVDAResman.kext NVDAResman.kext.bak

This renames the kext to NVDAResman.kext.bak (to keep a backup). Now, reboot with the boot flags,

-v -f

And then see how it goes.
