Mavericks only boots in safe mode - Asus N56VB

26 December 2013 - 09:46 AM


I've been trying to install Mavericks successfully for one week but I'm still experiencing some issues.

First here are the specs of the laptop (Asus N56VB series)
- Processor : Intel Core i7-3630QM 2,4Ghz
- Graphics : Intel HD4000 + NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M
- Network : Atheros AR8161 (Ethernet, working OOB in safe mode) & Atheros AR9485WB-EG (Wifi, not working in safe mode)
- Audio : Realtek but I don't know which device

I've been installing Mavericks using the retail dmg and this method : http://www.insanelym...-install-guide/
I also added some kexts on the USB install key and the installation went fine.
Then I installed all necessary kexts and Chimera. The problem is that I can only run Mavericks with the -x flag. Without it, the boot gets stuck at :

[IOBluetoothHCIController::setConfigState] calling registerService
**** [IOBluetoothHCIController][protectedBluetoothHCIControllerTransportShowsUp] -- Connected to the transport successfully -- 0x9e40 -- 0xa000 -- 0x1000 ****

DRMStatus: iTunes/Apple Store Content Access Problem. Content playback may be disabled on this computer. You can continue to use the machine, but you should contact an Apple support representative. ErrorCode: 8877652


I think I've tried every possible combination of flags but I can't go any further. I add that I disabled virtualisation in the BIOS and that I run in AHCI mode (the only things I can do, the BIOS has very few features...).

Does anybody have an idea of what is happening ?
