  1. Mavericks only boots in safe mode - Asus N56VB

    Hello, HD4000 graphics are working now. It could help others, so here is what I done : - Clean Vanilla install of Mavericks - Install latest Chameleon on hard drive, and put into org.chameleon.Boot.plist <key>IntelCapriFB</key> <string>3</string> - Boot with a proper DSDT for my laptop Audio is working with the latest VoodooHDA kext (I just had to patch the device ID) Webcam is working (but not in Photo Booth) Ethernet is working Wifi will probably never work Trackpad and multimedia keys don't work well, I'm always looking for a fix (if someone has an idea). Thanks to iFire for the help (don't know why it didn't work before, I did exactly what you said, I maybe broke some kexts) I mark the problem solved, but if someone can help with trackpad and multimedia keys I would appreciate.

    I'm not especially in favour of Chimera and Tonymac, I've just realized today (thanks to your help, that's what I was here for) that it brought the graphics to work. If I could find a solution without it would be great. I'm also looking for workarounds for Wifi and Audio, also what I'm here for. Thank you for your previous help though.

    The DSDT makes the system hangs at boot (at the same point as before). Did you patch the graphics in the DSDT ? It isn't needed since the key IGPlatformID in Chimera fixes the issue. What is not working is : - Wifi - Audio (VoodooHDA doesn't work) - Webcam (the lights switches on when Photo Booth is launched but it doesn't work) - FN keys (not very important if not working) - the trackpad is working but not the 2-digits-scrolling, although it is activated in System Prefs (not very important as well if not working) I launched lspci manually in Terminal, here's the response : pcilib: 0000:01:00.0 64-bit device address ignored. pcilib: 0000:01:00.0 64-bit device address ignored. pcilib: 0000:00:02.0 64-bit device address ignored. 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Unknown device 0154 (rev 09) 00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Unknown device 0151 (rev 09) 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Unknown device 0166 (rev 09) 00:14.0 USB Controller: Intel Corporation Unknown device 1e31 (rev 04) 00:16.0 Communication controller: Intel Corporation Unknown device 1e3a (rev 04) 00:1a.0 USB Controller: Intel Corporation Unknown device 1e2d (rev 04) 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation Unknown device 1e20 (rev 04) 00:1c.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Unknown device 1e10 (rev c4) 00:1c.1 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Unknown device 1e12 (rev c4) 00:1c.3 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Unknown device 1e16 (rev c4) 00:1d.0 USB Controller: Intel Corporation Unknown device 1e26 (rev 04) 00:1f.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corporation Unknown device 1e59 (rev 04) 00:1f.2 SATA controller: Intel Corporation Unknown device 1e03 (rev 04) 00:1f.3 SMBus: Intel Corporation Unknown device 1e22 (rev 04) 01:00.0 3D controller: nVidia Corporation Unknown device 0fdf (rev a1) 03:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc.

    Should I restore these kexts ? EDIT : I do have these kexts in /S/L/E in fact... Extra.zip

    Here's the report, but I think it's not complete (for e.g. the lspci command failed) Many thanks for your help DarwinDumper_2.8.8_Chameleon_2.2_X64_Mav_boullusgoullus.zip
  7. Mavericks only boots in safe mode - Asus N56VB

    Well in fact I've already put this one, sorry So with this SMBios I tried two things : - extract DSDT : I could boot in normal mode, but the screen was split into 4 (I could see four desktops).. - I installed Chimera : I could boot in normal mode with the flag : IGPlatformID=01660003 So something is positive : now I know the ID of my HD4000 ; but it doesn't work with Chameleon (I reinstalled it and tried to boot with InjectIntel-ig=01660003 or IntelCapriFB=3), which is quite weird PS : In normal mode the wifi wasn't working (as expected) ; do you know a workaround to bring the AR9485 to work or is it hopeless?

    I tested all the ig-platforms for Ivy Bridge (my CPU is IvyBridge), and I have no smbios.
  9. Mavericks only boots in safe mode - Asus N56VB

    Maybe I did something wrong, but I tried the flag InjectIntel-ig=01660004 and the flag IntelCapriFB with the values from 0 to 11, and nothing changes. Is there something I forgot/misunderstood? (btw, how do you get the value you type after InjectIntel-ig from the values listed in your post ?)
  10. Mavericks only boots in safe mode - Asus N56VB

    Thanks for your reply. I did what you said, and nothing changes if I boot with "-v GraphicsEnabler=No" (I get stuck at the same point as before). However, if I boot with "-v" or "-v GraphicsEnabler=Yes" I end up with a black screen
  11. Hi! 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.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/289062-109-mavericks-simple-vanilla-hackintosh-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 ? Thanks boullusgoullus
  12. OSX Snow Leopard Freezes...

  13. OSX Snow Leopard Freezes...

    Well, I don't think it's the graphics, it seems there is absolutely no link I could downgrade my version of OSX or iTunes, of course, but it would be better to solve the problem... Any other ideas?
  14. Hi everyone I hope you'll be able to help me, because I'm facing a bothering problem... So, here's the story : about one week ago, I installed successfully OSX 10.6.3, using the retail Snow Leopard DVD and some EFI CD to boot the install ; then I installed Chameleon, many softwares I needed, and everything works fine now! Graphic card recognized, as well as the WiFi USB Key and the sound card Here's my config : - CPU Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 @ 2,53Ghz - Graphic Card Nvidia GeForce 8800GT 1Go - one Hitachi Hard drive for Mac (partitioned in GUID), the other one for Windows and data - Motherboard : Gigabyte GA-P31-DS3L - Sound : Terratec Aureon 5.1 PCI - WiFi : D-Link DWL-G122 I recently updated to 10.6.7 using Software Updater... I don't know if the problem is linked But I know for certain that, when I launch iTunes, the OS freezes completely (it's even impossible to move the mouse or to use the keyboard )... the problem doesn't solve from itself, so I'm forced to reboot using the reset button on the PC case I've only noticed that the problem appears when launching iTunes. I've seen many freezes problems on other forums, but everything that is said as a solution is to repair Disk permissions (what I've done)... It's really bothersome because now the problem appears EVERYTIME I use iTunes (very often, so)... a couple of days ago it only appeared sometimes Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks
  15. Can't get my 8800GT to work...

    I followed the guide, but I seem to be unlucky, Core Image stays "Software" and Quartz Extreme is no supported... Desesperating Any other ideas ?
