Greetings,

  After countless hours of effort, a few tears along the way, and thankful advice from the forum members  :)  I have claimed success with a functional SPro 1 Mavericks Installation.

 

Followed this (http://www.insanelym...dows-multiboot/) explicitly. All went well until the USB Installation completed and I attempted to boot to initial setup via USB.

  1. Reboot back into Clover (you will need to hold the volume button again)
  2. Select the newly installed Mavericks drive and boot without caches and injected kext------> What resulted was a freeze at "Bluetooth Transport Controller Missing" :(   ---  The following steps solved this issue:

Boot via Clover USB--- Options-Graphics Injector-InjectEDID (checked)-FakeID:0x1660009-LoadVideoBios (checked)-Return   //  Proceed to Boot in SAFE mode

(I cannot emphasize these steps enough. I tried every other combination and none broke the freeze at "Bluetooth Controller Missing")

Once your installation takes you to the Mavericks Desktop, re-install the 5xKexts contained in the "SurfacePro" folder, available on the first post of this forum. I was unable to install Clover boot loader to my SSD at this stage ( Safe Mode?). Shutdown and reboot via CloverUSB. This time, booting "without caches and injected kexts" got me to the desktop  :) . Once there, I followed the guide "V0.3 Update Backlight and Sleep", installed Clover to my SSD, and followed steps 5,6,7, of "Install OSX on the SurfacePro". Applied Rehabman's NullEthernet Method (http://www.insanelym...0#entry2003512) to get iCloud working. 

And that's the end of the story.. happy face included! Thanks again to all who've contributed invaluable information on this forum!

Sorry JahStories, misunderstanding.. I did inject the code, but I'm still stuck at Btooth Controller.

caleidosCope... thanks for checkin' in! I did what I suspect is a "clean" install, reformatted the drive but left the Win8 recovery partition alone. Is that ok? I believe I'm using the proper files (v 0.2 files & v 0.3 files). I'm able to complete the installation, however I'm unable to boot post installation via the same USB drive I used for the initial installation. Same error every time---> stuck at "Bluetooth Controller.." Any suggestions?   Thanks again.  ssprod

Tried a re-install, repaired permissions, etc. Still stuck at BT Controller. Thanks.
