  1. Alright, so, I got Mavericks installed on my build: Z77-DS3H 8Gb DDR3-1333 RAM OC'd to 1600 i7-3770k (OC'ng shortly to 4.2) EVGA GTX570 HD 1280MB 250GB Crucial M500 SSD 1TB Seagate 7200RPM HDD Vantec FireWire 800/400 UGT-FW210 Using this thread/tutorial by A.I.Ghost I followed it pretty closely and made a few changes for my specific build as follows: After following all his steps I got everything except the HWMonitor package to work, so I installed FakeSMC v5.3.820 via MultiB**** to the USB installer, then booted perfectly using "-v -f npci=0x2000". Installed, deleted AppleKextExcludeList.kext, copied FakeSMC back, rebooted into OSX using "-v -f npci=0x2000" Ran MultiB**** again and selected FakeSMC v5.3.820 + Plugins/HWMonitor App, under Audio I selected Realtek ALCxxx>Without DSDT>Optional 3 Port Audio Enabler, under Disk I enabled 10.9.0 TRIM Patch (for the 250Gb M500 SSD), under Network I selected Atheros - Shailua's ALSEthernet v1.0.2 so it would be injected directly into the IONetworkingFamily.kext instead of alt-loaded by Extra, then installed Chameleon from the installer A.I.Ghost suggested and dropped in his org.chameleon.plist, taking out the -v npci=0x2000 flags After that I got a warning that kexts from unkown developers were installed, so I went to: System preferences>Security and privacy>Unlock (password needed)>Allow apps downloaded from:Anywhere Rebooted into an almost perfect installation with everything almost fully functional. ----------------- Tried Clover for awhile. Used this to go to Clover http://www.insanelym...ionadd-to-bios/ Boots damn quick, but I keep getting two errors in Console that are a little unsettling: PM kernel[0]: FireWire GUID 0000000000000000 is invalid! PM plugin-container[952]: AVF error: AVF_VirtualAcceleratorCreate: fail to create QT accelerator If anyone knows how to help with either issue please comment asap. Ran VDADecoderChecker and got: AVF info: hasOfflineRenderer, board-id check : true AVF info: Successfully connected to the Intel plugin, offline Gen6 AVDCreateGPUAccelerator: Error loading GPU renderer An error was returned by the decoder layer. This may happen for example because of bitstream/data errors during a decode operation. This error may also be returned from VDADecoderCreate when hardware decoder resources are available on the system but currently in use by another process. VDADecoderCreate failed. err: -12473 logout I feel like it might be ignoring my nVidia card for some reason or another, even thought the only display in use is hooked into the GTX570 HD. I'll share my Clover zip below. I'm sure something is a little off, but it boots my above mentioned rig in about 14sec and everything, aside from the two errors mentioned, works perfectly. All you need to do to apply it is format your EFI partition to FAT32 and unzip contents to it, then change BIOS to boot from UEFI EFI partition. You can test it first by formatting a USB drive to FAT32 and copying the contents of the ZIP there instead, then setting BIOS to boot from the UEFI USB drive. If you're using ATI/Intel graphics you'll need to change the Inject keys in EFI>Clover>config.plist to "false" for nVidia and "true" for what you use. I think my problems stem from the DSDT section of this same config.plist or from the actual DSDT within EFI>Clover>ACPI>patched>DSDT.dsl. The added Z77-DS3H folder just has different config.plist's I've tried along the way. Now I just need a few things from the community. I need a solution for WiFi via normal PCI or USB, preferably OOB, most likely not, please advise if you come across a definite solution. I also need a solution to my above mentioned errors. Attached Files CloverZ77DS3H.zip 3.08MB 0 downloads EDIT: So, I installed Enoch instead of Clover and: sleep can now be woken by USB (previously would only wake from power button) Firewire doesn't report error UNTIL after sleep, then same "FireWire GUID 0000000000000000 is invalid!" console every 10sec No longer seeing PM plugin-container[952]: AVF error: AVF_VirtualAcceleratorCreate: fail to create QT accelerator So I'm led to believe that I screwed up the DSDT part of Clover. I'd really like to make this thing completely Mac'cy and able to do major updates without rehaxin, so if anyone could look at my Clover arrangement and tell me what to change I'd be super appreciative. I installed Enoch with nothing but the above mentioned MuiltiB kexts and a tweaked SMBios to add a serial number to my machine. No DSDT.

Installed Chameleon instead of Clover and fixed most bugs (firewire has errors only after sleep now), so I'm curious as to what I should change in Clover to make it perfect. CloverZ77DS3H.zip

Thank you. So much. T.T If there was a like/promote/thanks button I'd be clicking the $#!+ out of it atm. Now I just need to find a perfect solution for WiFi, preferably OOB, most likely not, please advise if you come across a definite solution.
  4. Thanks a ton I'll come crying if it esplodes. EDIT: Having issues installing the HWMonitor package to the USB drive, keeps telling me it can only be installed on the partition currently running OSX
  5. Can't thank you enough for taking the time to talk to me. I plan on getting it ready for production by Thursday, hoping to nail it when I wake up later today. I found the problems I had with Kakewalk were likely to be that I needed to use boot flags for my nVidia card. Not positive though. If you could answer these questions I'd be incredibly appreciative How do I know if my mobo is Rev 1.0 or 1.1? Says it nowhere on the box or board.. Would there be any flags you think I might need for booting your method using my aforementioned hardware? Specifically the GTX 570HD Would you be able to attach/list recommended kexts and exact boot loader version for the build? I was considering Chimera at first, but you seem to have it working great and that's all I care about. Were you saying your onboard audio doesn't work or that it shows up but you just haven't used it? I'm building it for audio production and will be using an interface, but I want the onboard working too. If you don't have a solution for audio I'll look it up and share my findings. I doubt you'd have much to offer for this one as you use ethernet, but it's worth a shot: I need wifi to work on this and would prefer PCI (not express) but can't find a list of compatible cards anywhere. I only saw osx86's list of Mini-PCI cards, one of which is recognized as full Airport Extreme. I found that card and a Mini PCI to PCI card, but I don't know if a converter will work without drivers. I feel like it should as it's just rerouting the contacts to be for big-PCI. Any input on this would be immensely helpful as I have gone through 2 cards already. EDIT: And now there's a Golden Golden Master! O.O Basically the same thing, only they officially pushed this through MacBook updates, so I'll use that one.
  6. How's GM treating you Ghost? I'm building this machine for production: GA-Z77-DS3H Rev 1.0 (I think...how can I tell?) Core i7-3770k EVGA nVidia GTX570 HD 1.2Gb 8Gb RAM 256Gb M500 SSD 1Tb 7200RPM (Windows + Storage Partitions) I'm debating between Mavericks GM or 10.8.5. I want to not have to do this all over again in a month when the official Mav comes out, but I also want stability in programs like After Effects, Logic Studios, and Final Cut. So I haz two questions for ya: Which OS would you reccomend? Would you know why when I boot using Kakewalk for 10.8.5 it gets to Bluetooth (which I don't even have installed), hangs for a minute, then boots the installer to a black screen of nothingness?
  7. Latest GTX570 HD Full-Power Method

    Well, I'm just going to reinstall again and see what happens
  8. Latest GTX570 HD Full-Power Method

    I have. I got about 800 in Luxmark using that and Mul+1B3ast. Now it's far worse after trying the Nvidia kexts, then reverting back. Can't get more than 80 T.T
  9. Just tried it now. When I go to bench in Lux, it now says "No OpenCL device detected". Ungine Engine shows 9 FPS. The Sleep/cmos reset thing didn't show any apparent change, I didn't have in issue with that before. Rolled back to 10.7.3 supplied kexts and Mul+1B3ast, everything works again. Edit: Correction, now Luxmark says I have a score of 80 -______- Nothing I do makes it go back to the 800 I had before, and I still show a FPS of 9 in Ungine, only difference between the 2 drivers now is that OpenCL is supported in the default OSX kexts. This blows v.v I ran the NVIDIARestore package, got the old kexts back, then ran the combo enabler, but the results...are worse now than ever T.T
  10. Alright guys (and gals . I've been searching these forums for quite some time now (at least two months) trying to find a legit fool-proof method of getting full recognition and power out of my GTX570 HD. I'm SURE I'm not the only one. Currently, using the official 10.7.3 kexts and the combo enabler from Mul+1B3ast, I bench at ~800 in Luxmark; very disappointing. I've seen a few people post recent success stories of far higher scores, but not how they did it >_< Conducting a search through the forum for "GTX570" gets me a bunch of old methods prior to 10.7.3 or a bunch of hopeless people in my shoes, as it would for anyone else frantically searching for a solution to their 570. So, I'd like to call out to all those reading this who have managed to enable their 570's or similar and gotten beautiful benches to please share your methods. Don't be shy! If someone posts one thats ALMOST identical to yours aside from one step, POST IT ANYWAY! You never know if that one detail could be the difference from 800 Lux or 7000 Lux for someone else! Let's make the post that tops the search bar with a method to get any GTX570 working in no time flat! My specs, for reference, are: ASUS Sabertooth X58 GTX570 HD 12GB RAM i7 950 Everything works perfectly except my card.
  11. Nvidia EVGA GTX 570HD SC

    Can you post a modern guide? I've been trying to get my GTX570 HD working on a fresh install of 10.7.3. I tried stock 10.7.3 drivers with latest CUDA and Mul+1B3ast combo enabler. I have seen some post results in Luxmark as high as 7000, I can't get anything over 800. Someone recommended a DSDT edit for my card, but I'm not sure if that's still a decent method and I have no experience with DSDT editing. Like most, the death of the auto-patcher was a sad day for me v.v
  12. Fermi Graphics Power Management

    Did you get it working? I've been searching for weeks, nobody seems to have posted their solution for getting full power out of their GTX570 HD v.v
  13. Thank you so much ErmaC! ^-^ I've been trying for a year now and you fixed it in a day. All that's left is to find a way to fully activate my GTX570 HD and I'm golden...guess I'll make a new topic and hope someone bites
  14. Nothing has been added to E/E. For S/L/E, I added nVidia's CUDA kexts, the official Realtek Gigabit Ethernet 2.0.6 for 10.7, the 10.7.2/10.7.3 combo OpenCL enabler for 10.7.3 nVidia kexts, and Chimera v1.8.0 r1394 from Mul+1B3ast. For audio I added the latest AppleHDA for ALC892 from Toleda. From my research, I was told that the nVidia kexts that came with the 10.7.3 update Are the latest kexts and that the one on nVidia's support page are 1 release behind, but I'll install those if that's what you want me to do (confirm it, plz). Here is the new IOREG with my ProFire plugged in as well. Thanks again for your help JDR’s Mac Pro 2.zip
  15. UserDSDT installed with that file, then opened Logic. Still the same weird audio. The ProFire mixer in System Settings seems to react immediately to the levels of my voice, which is an improvement, but for some reason there's still a delay in sound in Logic and it comes up as that odd noise. On the plus side, Sleep works right now Before it would go black screen and the CD reader would keep starting up every 10min, now it actually sleeps. Also, Luxmark now scores 100 points higher, which is nothing in terms of solving the OpenGL problem, but I think it would mean that you've improved overall system stability by a bit. Not sure if it matters, but I'm running my interface through the onboard firewire.
