Thanks for the links! I managed to get a hold of a Mavericks 10.9.2 install image, set it up in VMware, download 10.9.3 from the App Store, and get it copied to a flash drive, along with setting up Clover.
I'm installing it currently, but so far there wasn't any issues
Just adding my experience here; on my ASRock Fatal1ty H97 Killer motherboard, I had to enable the USB Compatibility Patch under BIOS settings in order for VMWare Player to see my flash drive at all (didn't see it in either the USB 2.0 or 3.0 ports).
No, try to boot OS X with the vanilla kernel and disabled PM kernel patch in Clover. In case it boots successfully the MSRs are unlocked too.
In my BIOS, I have all power saving tech disabled (including Turbo and SpeedStep), and a fixed clock rate. Would I still need the disabled PM kernel patch? Or should I just re-enabled some of those features in order to test for unlocked MSRs?
