  1. This worked perfectly. Thanks! Now I just need to get power management (sleep) working, if possible.
  2. Full specs are one of your suggested builds. Sabertooth X79 i7-3820 Geforce GTX 680 etc... Attached is a pic of the error i get when I try to boot without the "-x" flag. If I boot in safemode it boots but I get no sound. I'm starting to think that my sound issue and the safemode issue are connected. Is that possible?
  3. Supposedly it's ALC892 but there may be a default kext somewhere that needs to be deleted. Any idea why I'd always need to boot in safe mode? It seems to be a USB issue that causes it to hang when booting without the "-x" bootflag. IOUSBFamily unable to enumerate... is the error message I get right before a KP. The only USB device I have attached is my mouse and I never got that issue in 10.8
  4. I think I'm using the right SSDT as everything else works but sound. How many audio kexts did you have to manually delete?
  5. Is anyone else having issues getting sound to work with the Saberthooth X79? ASUS Sabertooth X79 i7-3820 Nvidia Geforce GTX 680 Everything worked perfectly in 10.8. I can get Mavericks to install but I always have to boot in safemode with the "-x" boot flag and I haven't been able to get sound to work. The card uses ALC892 and I've installed kexts for ALC892 and I've tried VoodooHDA as well. Neither seem to work. VoodooHDA says that there's no compatible HDA device attached, etc... and the ALC892 kexts don't seem to do anything. In both cases the only sound device listed is a "Virtual Sound Device" It also won't detect my USB headset or mic, something that 10.8 did even before i installed the needed Kexts.
  6. [10.9 - Installation Troubleshooting]

    I've actually been able to get it to boot and install. The issue now is that it seems to only boot in safemode and I can't get sound working. Edit: For the sound I've tried both ALC892 kext files and VoodooHDA kext files (latest version). Is no sound a known error for the Sabertooth X79? It worked perfectly in 10.8
  7. [10.9 - Installation Troubleshooting]

    Having trouble getting 10.9 to install on a system that runs 10.8 perfectly. Using the MyHack method. Mobo: ASUS Sabertooth X79 CPU: Intel i7 - 3820 GPU: Nvidia GTX 680 32 GB Memory When I installed 10.8 I booted with the following flags: -v cpus=1 npci = 0x2000 GraphicsEnabler = No busratio = 32 UseKernalCache = No EthernetBuiltIn = Yes and it installed flawlessly. I've used those flags on 10.9 as well as the following: -v npci=0x2000 cpus=1 GraphicsEnabler = No and in both instances the installer gets to a white screen with a spinning rainbow colored mouse cursor and seems to hang there. I can move the cursor around the screen but it never seems to go past that point. Any thoughts?
  8. OS X 10.9 myHack USB Installer Beta

    No, that didn't work. It just rebooted my machine. I got 10.8 to install flawlessly with the following: cpus = 1 npci = 0x2000 GraphicsEnabler = No BusRatio = 32 UseKernalCache = No I tried that with 10.9 as well and it doesn't work.
  9. OS X 10.9 myHack USB Installer Beta

    Having a little trouble with a myHack install. First my specs: Asus Sabertooth X79 Mobo Intel i7-3820 Nvidia GTX 680 Graphics card. I started the USB installer using the following flags: -v npci=0x2000 cpus = 1 GraphicsEnabler = No Things seem to go fine until I hit an all white screen with a spinning rainbow colored mouse cursor. After that the install seems to freeze up as it will never leave the white screen/rainbow cursor. Any ideas what could be wrong?
  10. I'm currently using 10.8.4 on one of the suggested builds: Asus Sabertooth X79 i7 3820 Geforce 680 etc... So a couple of questions: 1) Is it possible to upgrade to 10.9 without doing a wipe/fresh install? If so, how? 2) If not, is there a way to backup my currently installed software for quick reinstall after the upgrade? I have a ton of stuff installed. If so, how?
  11. OS X 10.9 myHack USB Installer Beta

    Does this utility work with the GM release of Mavericks that was released today?
  12. Cheap Laptop for Hackintosh - Dell Inspiron i15RV-1333

    I have a little USB wifi adapter I could use. It's between this or a Acer Chromebook for around $225 that I can just install Ubuntu on.
  13. Any thoughts on the Dell Inspiron i15RV-1333 as a cheap Hackintosh laptop? It seems to be primarily (only?) sold at Walmart: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Dell-Black-Matte-15.6-Inspiron-i15RV-1333BLK-Laptop-PC-with-Intel-Core-i3-3227U-Processor-and-Windows-8-Operating-System/25582170 Specs: Intel Core i3-3227U processor 6GB DDR3 SDRAM system memory 500GB SATA hard drive Integrated Intel HD Graphics Nothing super powerful but I'm looking for a laptop that I can dualboot Linux/OS X for development. Thoughts? See anything that would be a huge "Red Flag" as to why I shouldn't get this? Could I even hackintosh it?
  14. What's missing in the 10.9 Dev Build?

    Good to know. I'm excited for the LGA 2011 power management fixes that 10.9 will bring but I think I'll wait until the actual release to upgrade.
  15. While I'm 99% sure that I could install 10.9 today without much of a problem I'm slightly worried about the stability of the actual OS. For those of you who have been using 10.9 for the past couple of days, is anything missing and/or not working properly? In other words, could I use this as my daily OS or am I better off sticking with 10.8.3?
