  1. Alright, so I've been through every forum I can possibly find and it seems this mb isn't all that popular. Regardless, all should be working fine... but it isn't. I've successfully installed 10.9 (via the un!beast method) three different times, but the same issue seems to persist. I can get through installation just fine (no boot flags are even necessary). Then it restarts, and I boot again off of the un!beast chimera bootloader into the newly installed partition. Again this will work just fine, and even the graphic kext and ethernet work excellent (no audio though). But it's after I try to get the audio running that problems arise. I try to install only the ALC892 audio kext, the AppleIntelE1000e.kext, and the chimera bootloader... oh and also fakesmc of course. It will then hang on the next restart at pretty much the same point every-time. The weird thing is I can boot into safe mode just fine consistently. I've tried taking the alc kext and the hda enabler (if i recall) off... repairing permissions etc etc, it still hangs at the same spot. It normally hangs at some stupid bluetooth line, so I take all the bluetooth kexts off since im not using bluetooth. Then it will instead freeze at an hda audio integration 581 line. From what I've researched, these don't sound like the problem kexts, but rather that it's hanging from the upcoming graphics trying to load. So I'm using the onboard hd4600 graphics which have already worked fully with the same exact bootloader, which doesn't make sense to me! I've updated my bios to the latest f5 edition, played with every bios combination known to man, tried many different boot flag combinations (GraphicsEnabler=No dart=0 -v -F -x... etc), tried different smbios via chameleon wizard (running in safe mode), and also tried chameleon instead of chimera. All to no avail... so i'm simply at a lose now. Gigabyte boards aren't supposed to be this hard! What's so different between the un!beast installer kexts/configuration vs mine, that it is causing this havoc? Gigabyte H87-D3H 8GBs DDR3 1600MHz I5-4670 Boot Drive: 3TB ST3000DM001
