Hello there Its been 3 years since I last installed a copy of OSX on my windows machine .
After years of countless attempts I have decided to TRY and install OSX Mavericks , of course with no hope!

I am currently trying to install with Nireshs's 10.9 distro , but fail to even reach the installer!

Here are my specs quick(Hopefully your understand) :):

CPU: AMD Phenom  X4 9650, 2300MHz (11.5 x 200 )

MB: ASrock N68-S

Chipset: Nvidia NFORCE 7025-630a ,+  ?AMD K10?

GPU: Nvidia Geforce GT240 (1024)MB

Here is what I have gathered over the last couple days of trying to get the mavericks installation :

Kernel I have changed on osx install usb to : AMD10.9.*13.0.0-R50 ,
Have also changed the Mach_kernel.
And have also placed my DSDT Files into ROOT of USB installer

BootFlags: amd     ,   -v     , npci=xxxxxx (x meaning 0x2000 or 0x3000)
Notes: NON-AHCI Board (Apparentley,I just think theres no option)  However RAID can be setup with again 2 SATA Drives .

Now my Problem:

                             nForce 630a / 7025 , Dreaded "Still waiting for root device"


Can someone Please help me solve this problem ,

Further up the white writing in Verbose , there is also a problem with USBEHCHI - something like that , will confirm next reboot.

 I Have ofcourse tried USBBUSFIX=YES , etc but same result

Please Help

I had similar issues with the same motherboard chipset.


From reading some other threads, it may be worth trying this kernel flag: USBLegacyOff=Yes


Personally I haven't tried it, but it may help you.
