  1. I'll update this post once I do it. I used the Windows version too.
  2. Help needed getting PCI WiFi adapter working

    Hi, I'm having the same issue with the same card and I "almost" managed to fix the problem. I downloaded the .kext from here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/203030-tl-wn851n-atheros-wlan-on-1058/?p=1440013 The card is now recognized but everytime I try to connect to a wifi network I get an error saying "Connection Failed". I can't use the wifi but after 2 months of working on this problem at least OS X now recognizes the card!
  3. Hi, Sorry but I forgot the link to the PMPatch, I put it in the folder where I unzipped the flash utility and forgot about it. Here's the link: https://www.mediafire.com/?8866wtwhp4wi7 After you've downloaded it drag the exe in the "AfuWin64" folder.
  4. Some problems with a new Hackintosh

    Thanks for the help. I installed Mavericks with myHack. I don't have any video card at the moment, but I plan on getting one in a month. I can't fix the second problem at the moment because I got told that VGA is unsupported on Macs, and thus there's no way for me to use 2 screens properly if one is using VGA. When I'll buy my discrete graphic card I'll use an adapter so I'll be able to use the 2 screens properly. About the first problem I heard that PCI is unsupported unless I patch my DSDT file, and I couldn't find my motherboard custom patch so I have no clue what to do.
  5. Hi everyone, this is my second thread on the Forum. After 5 days of problems I finally managed to install Mavericks on my AsRock motherboard. However I've encountered some problems that I can't seem to sort out. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 1. My PCI Wi-Fi adapter doesn't get recognized. It's a TL-WN951N and Mac OS doesn't see any PCI device. The device works in Windows. It's supposed to work Out Of The Box, so I don't really know what to do about it... 2. Mac OS doesn't recognize the 2 screens. I currently have a monitor with a resolution of 1600x1050 and a 1080p TV connected to my rig. Windows has no problem handling the 2 screens, showing the correct names for both of them, and letting me use the Extended Desktop. If I turn on the computer with both screens plugged in the monitor mirrors on the tv. If I turn on the computer with only one of the screens plugged in and I plug the other one in after Mavericks boot that screen doesn't work, I just get a black screen. This are my specs if you need them: Motherboard: AsRock Z87 Pro3 CPU: Intel Core i5-4670k 3.4GHz RAM: DDR3 Corsair Vengeance Blue Low Profile CML8GX3M2A1600C9B 1600MHz 8GB (2x4GB) CL9 HDD: Seagate ST1000DM003 Barracuda
  6. Patching the BIOS seemed to work! If you guys have my same problem with my same motherboard here's what I did to get it working: 1. Make a USB Installation Disk with myHack 2. Download this file on Windows: http://www.ami.com/s...ds/amiflash.zip Open the zip and navigate to: \amiflash\Aptio\afuwin\64\ You will find another zip, extract it to the desktop. A folder called "AfuWin64" will be created. Now download this file: http://www.mediafire.com/download/gb9twzg3d2rnesc/PMPatch_0.5.13_win.zip Extract the .exe and move it in the "AfuWin64" folder on the Desktop. 3. Now right click on the folder in the desktop called "AfuWin64" while pressing Shift, and in the menu you will see "Open command window here", click it. Now be sure to close ALL the programs you have open, even the browser you're using to read this (so I suggest to use another device to read the next steps) 4. In the CMD you opened in step 3 type this: afuwinx64 bios.bin /o (it creates a copy of your BIOS on the computer) pmpatch bios.bin bios-pmpatched.bin (it patches your BIOS to get past the error) afuwinx64 bios-pmpatched.bin /gan (it flashes the patched BIOS on the motherboard) Now reboot. 5. Follow again step 3 and use these commands to check if the BIOS has been patched correctly: afuwinx64 bios2.bin /o pmpatch bios2.bin bios2-pmpatched.bin If everything worked it will tell you that the program found nothing to patch. After you did this boot from USB and Mavericks will begin installing. EDIT: Guide updated after nettrafficer post.
  7. [UEFIPatch] UEFI patching utility

    I've been encountering a problem with my Mavericks installation, and from what I read and from some of the replies I got I understood that I needed to flash the BIOS to fix my problem. My motherboard is an AsRock z87 Pro 3. What's the best method to do it? I read about the #775 post in this thread, but I can't seem to find an AFUDOS version which I'm sure it'll work with my motherboard.
  8. Actually I wanted to flash it but I can't find the proper tool or even an exact tutorial on how to do it so I'm taking more time to study how to do it and then I'll give it a try.
  9. Thanks for the reply. I will try to flash my BIOS now and I will let you know in a minute.
  10. Hi guys, this is my first post here. I recently built a PC and was interested in getting Mavericks to dual boot with Windows 8. This is the configuration: Motherboard: AsRock Z87 Pro3 CPU: Intel Core i5-4670k 3.4GHz RAM: DDR3 Corsair Vengeance Blue Low Profile CML8GX3M2A1600C9B 1600MHz 8GB (2x4GB) CL9 HDD: Seagate ST1000DM003 Barracuda I didn't flash my motherboard, but the BIOS has been updated to the last version available. I also have an SSD with Windows 8 installed on, but it's unplugged. What I did is running Mountain Lion on a Virtual Machine on this PC, got a 8 GB Cruzer USB Stick ready with myHack and then unplugged the SSD and tried to install Mac OS X Mavericks on the HDD. However after I get the boot device choosing option of myHack and choose my USB Stick to boot the Mavericks installation OS I see the Apple logo for a second and then the PC reboots. I've tried using another USB stick, and even a SATA HDD. I've tried using a lot of boot flags, and when I use -v the PC restarts at Starting Darwin x86_64 Boot Args: boot-uuid=5D98B392-0DD6-3459-AZ44-6C444E2DE05E rd=*uuid -v I then tried using this guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/280756-guide-the-all-in-one-guide-to-vanilla-os-x-including-chameleon-dsdt-for-beginners-updated-for-mavericks/ I get the same problem. I've been working on this problem for the past 4 days. Any suggestion or help would be greatly appreciated.
