In Topic: Upgrading from 10.8 to 10.9

26 May 2014 - 07:33 PM

This is a bit of a (steep!) learning curve for me... Just found another guide that mentions copying across existing ketxs from System/Library/Extensions - I'm wondering whether, if I did that, I might have fared a little better!   


I'll do some more searching later and perhaps give it another shot in a few days once I've mustered the willpower and/or courage!


Thanks for the help again d620osx :)

Thanks for that. My experiment was, unfortunately, a failure.


I followed the guide here: http://www.insanelym...for-mavericks/ 


I used the existing contents of the Extra folder from the existing set-up. Install and boot-up went fine but networking didn't work (no ethernet connection shown in System Preferences) and the audio didn't work either. I gave up at that point and reverted to the old SSD with 10.8 running on it. I'll need to do some Googling to see if there are some kexts for the motherboard.


If anyone stumbles across this and has the solution to getting Mavericks running on GA-Z77-DS3H (rev. 1.0) it'd be much appreciated!

Hiya d620osx,


Thanks for the reply.  Spec below:

GIGABYTE Z77 chipset - z77-DS3H (http://www.gigabyte....spx?pid=4147#ov)


Graphics - GIGABYTE GTX 470 Super over Clock (http://www.hardwarec...k-review-5.html)



Uses a wired net connection so no need for wi-fi (which I understand can be a PITA). 


I'll be adding a new hard drive so, worse-case scenario, I can always plug-in the old SSD if I screw things up (sorry, when I screw things up!!)
