I have an Optiplex 760 and tried to install Mavericks following this guide. I used Mavericks downloaden through the AppStore en followed every step mentioned at the start post. But when I boot my USB stick, it will stop every time at this line:
BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 No such file or directory

Is this videocard related? I am using my onboard vid card (my system does have some kind of PCI extension for DVI, I don't think it's a GPU, but just some sort adapter for DVI). The system is atm connected to a old 15" vga tft monitor through vga-vga cable.
I found some different suggestions on the internet according to this problem:
Power: switch from S3 to S1. I did, but nothing changed
Disable VT-d: my Bios doesnt has this option
Bios: choose onboard vga/card option instead of automatic. This also made no difference
Thanks for the great walkthrough! I have an HD5450 that was working fully under 10.9.1. However, if I make any changes to AMD5000Controller.kext and reinstall using the Kext Utility on 10.9.2 my resolution drops to 800 x 600 and the responsiveness is very slow. I can reinstall the 10.9.2 update and get the full resolution back, and some performance gains, but I am not getting full QE/CI.
Here are the log files that appear after editing and reinstalling the kexts according the directions provided.
Mar 14 18:57:59 jmacpro.local com.apple.kextd <Error>: Can't load /System/Library/Extensions/ATI5000Controller.kext - failed to resolve dependencies.

Did you use the right values for the kext files ?? maybe stupid question and have you installed in the past other kext files related to video ?
the kernel you provided did not work(stuck at mount hfs+) however i was able to install it by extracting mach_kernel from /Packages/Basesystembinaries.pkg using pacifier. One more thing though, I hade to make Extensions folder in /Extra folder of my USB and also paste the three kexts(EloittforceRTC, FAkesmc, Nullcpupowermangement) in the extensions folder to prevent bios reset when booting first time.
Sorry for that talsid, i am will make a clean install again on my Dell 780, but i will make use of myhack now to make it easier to install. So be patience. And yes you need the 3 kext files to prevent bios reset.
@pepto Ok Successfully install ML 10.8.0 on my optiplex 760 after about 2 days of tries Just one thing though. during the USB preparation I had to put EloittforceRTC.kext in System/library/extensions on my USB drive to make ML boot first time after installation
I have BIOS rev a00 on my computer
so can you please make this correction?
How did you get the right resolution with the onboard?
Oke i will maybe try it but my focus is now on Mavericks 10.9.X
For the right resolution you need a Videocard like i wrote in my tut a HD5450 or something else which works with OS X
