    GTX 760

    The 7/6 series cards are amazing and won't hear a peep out of them. I have the EVGA Superclocked GTX 770 2gb it's a reality nice card. You shouldn't run into any graphics issues since you're on 10.8.4 you will get full QE/CI and works out of the box due to self initiation features. Good luck!
  2. Hello folks! I'm having some graphics glitches with my GTX 770 on OS X Mavericks 10.9. My boot args are -v GraphicsEnabler=Yes PCIRootUID=1 The glitch seems to happen mostly in graphical transitions. Instead of a smooth transition the graphics blink rapidly during transition animations then return to normal when there is no transition movement. Ive attempted to use pandora's box to patch the video kexts with no avail. Any ideas on how to go about resolving this issue and getting full graphics acceleration in 10.9? Relevant hardware: EVGA GTX 770 2gb (Read as the GK104 in 'About This Mac') Gigabyte z87-HD3 i7 4770k OSX Mavericks 10.9 (issue persists in both DP1 and DP2) Any help is much appreciated! thanks in advance!

    QE/CI Glitchy Graphics issues on 10.9 GTX 770 and Haswell

    In regards to Hackintosh and the 770, yeah I have very little understanding with this card. And thanks for the info I will update to DP2 and hang tight for further updates and QE/CI support.

    QE/CI Glitchy Graphics issues on 10.9 GTX 770 and Haswell

    Hello again! And many thanks for the replies. Good to hear you've got the 780 up and running! And yeah unfortunately no wed drivers for the 7 series on 10.9 :/ Perhaps installing a copy of your ATY_Init.kext would solve? Also what card comes up when you look at your 'About This Mac'? I've just booted with the suggested arguments, and unfortunately no change. Ive already attempted a clean re-installation with myHack to see if it would fix the issue and patching ATY_Init.kext with Pandoras Box but also no change. Are there any other solutions for this issue via DSDT, kext, boot args etc..?

    Congrats Jonty! Maybe double check your res settings in your .plist boot file, to verify your changes are being applied? If not change them manually either in text or as a boot argument.

    Also try debug=0×100 or debug=0×144 and grab a picture with those.

    Introduce yourself.

    Hello all! I am Blipotech a current engineering student of computer software for mostly mobile devices with Java Android SDK and iOS. I also like to use CS6 for graphic, html, and project development and Logic for music production. I have finished my Haswell Hackintosh build and successfully have OS X Mavericks 10.9 up and running with only cosmetic (Graphic) issues. Build: intel i7 4770k nVidia GTX 770 2gb 8GB ram 500GB HDD, 128GB SSD Gigabyte z87-HD3 This forum has been a great tool for both pre and post installation and has a very helpful and healthy community. I find myself visiting more and more often!

    Compatible wireless cards?

    I have two drives as well one 500GB HDD and 128GB SSD Windows 7 on one and OS X 10.9 on the other. I used the 500GB HDD to test with since I pulled it out of my previous build it was 'leftovers' and haven't had any disk related errors thus far. However, I will say if you can go with an SSD for your OS X installation it's much faster. As far as the dual boot goes it's all a matter of your partitioning methods and BIOS version of which ever motherboard you go with.

    Have you taken a look here: http://www.osx86.net/cat/12-kernels.html for any related/patched kernels ?

    Compatible wireless cards?

    Have you installed the drivers? Scroll down you should see the 8187L:http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PFid=1&Level=6&Conn=5&ProdID=36&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false&Downloads=true Also what OS X version are you using ?
  11. The EBIOS read error and block sectors are referring to a problem regarding your boot disk. Did you format your drive correctly before booting ?

    Save yourself the trouble and go with the Atheros AR5B9 and GCWB300D. The methods you describe you are bound to run into compatibility issues.
  13. So I've reinstalled and back on DP1 and still having the same glitchy graphics issues attempted for the 3rd time to use Pandora's Box patches for graphics issues with no avail. CONFIRMED: there is no full graphics QE/CI support in OS X Mavericks 10.9 both DP1 and DP2 for the GTX 770 2GB on Haswell Hackintosh builds. However, all other aspects of both DP1 and DP2 including Booting with the following parameters (-v GraphicsEnabler=Yes PCIRootUID=1), Ethernet (Realtek RTL8111 Drivers), HDMI audio, and built-in audio input/output(VoodooHDA 2.4.8) are functioning as intended. So, it's great for everyday type of computing, but unfortunately for those who wish to be graphically productive in CS6, CS5.5 etc. with a similar build should stick to a Mac Pro, Macbook Pro, or a Hackintosh with more compatible graphics cards (like the GTX 550, 550ti and lower).
  14. I used two methods of installing Mavericks on my main system: This pkg installer from osx86 ---->http://www.osx86.net/downloads.php?do=file&id=3963 and myHack Unfortunately I am having some compatibility issues. I have successfully used the pkg installer from both myHack and osx86 on my Macbook Air to create a bootable Mavericks USB Stick to load OS X on my current build (Specs from dxdiag below). Here are the errors I am running into: When booting with HDMI Plugged into PCIe (GTX 770) -Hangs at [PCI Configuration Begin] When booting with HDMI Plugged into IGFX (Integrated graphics) -Passes [PCI Configuration Begin] -Hangs at Bluetooth Module -Shutsdown/Reboots at CPU halted -And lastly loops with a disk0s2 error I have tried booting with the following arguments: -x -v -f GraphicsEnabler=No GraphicsEnabler=Yes npci=0x3000 npci=0x2000 PCIRootUID=0 PRIRootUID=1 cpus=1 Here are specs directly from my DXDIAG System Manufacturer: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
  15. I'm on DP2. the smbios is no longer an issue I am using 5,1 from chameleon wizard and it is working fine. Installation is not an issue either, as I am able to boot without safe mode. Enabling QE/CI is the main issue I am running into. For example videos, youtube works but with a screen flickering glitch and opening launchpad shows lines before the apps come up instead of a smooth animation. Also, I am not sure what you're getting at regarding the installation could you clarify please. I appreciate the replies!
  16. Uh oh... should I reinstall? I mean it's booting fine, I just have glitchy graphics... also the is /packages folder more relevant to the graphics issue or the booting issue?
  17. ***UPDATE*** Day 1 Okay so, Ive got it up and running. Turns out the only .pkg type of installer that worked for me was myHack I am now successfully booting into safe mode and these parameters: -v -x GraphicsEnabler=No Thus far sound and ethernet are functioning as intended, but graphics are glitchy and full acceleration is not implemented. Day 2 I can now successfully boot into 10.9 DP2 without Safe Boot but graphics are still glitchy. I attempted to use Pandoras Box Post Installation Utility to fix the Safe Boot and Graphics issue, but it did not provide a solution. I would either get Kernel Panics or hangs at: **** [IOBluetoothHCIController][SearchForTransportEventTimeOutHandler] -- Missing Bluetooth Controller Transport! I noticed that I wasn't having these issues when booting from my myHack USB Drive so, I resolved this by: 1. Booting into safe mode with -v -f GraphicsEnabler=No 2. Deleting all of the kext files located at /System/Library/Extensions on Hard Drive 3. Copying all kexts from myHack USB/System/Library/Extensions 4. Pasting them back into /System/Library/Extensions on Hard Drive 5. Reboot BAM! My issue was resolved I am now able to boot successfully with the parameters: -v GraphicsEnabler=Yes Note: I did have to reinstall VoodooHDA and Ethernet Drivers to get sound and internet back up. The only issue I am having now are with full graphics acceleration. I tried for the second time to use Pandora's Box to fix the Graphics Issues with the ATY_Init.kext now that I'm booting without safe boot but for the second time Pandora's Box did not provide the solution. I am using the nVidia GTX 770 and just can't seem to get full graphics acceleration, any ideas?
  18. Ok, so there is no Smbios.plist located in my /Extra folder, however under my 'About This Mac' info it is listed as MacPro3,1. The aforementioned AppleTYMceDriver.kext is located in /Extra/RemovedExtensions so im assuming it is not being used. And attached is the BDMESG from Chameleon Wizard. Also have you got your ethernet up and running? BDMESG.rtf
  19. Congrats! I've got it up and running aswell! Well, kind of haha... Unfortunately the only sure way to get into boot on both the hd and my boot drive is by booting with -x -v -f GraphicsEnabler=No any clues on a fix for this ? Also, I am getting an occasional blank gray screen when log in or installer should be coming up Any ideas would be much appreciated!
  20. Unfortunately I already have Windows 7 installed but I will extract DSDT in Windows with Aida64 then send it over to my bootable USB. But thats excellent news! Let me know if you get OS X up and running and if so, what method you use. Also what graphics card and display type are you using if you don't mind me asking :?
  21. Thanks for the info Kucksy! Although I do not know how to get the proper information for my DSDT.aml file if I cannot boot to installation. Perhaps i am misunderstanding but i figure it will not be able to get an accurate description of my hackintosh system hardware it would instead be collecting info from my MB Air which I am using to extract it. How should I go about this ?
