  1. Hello again , Im back ,I managed to get mavericks installed using pandora video .and a few flags (cant remember what ones ) but main thing is it installed to my HDD , so when it installed it had to reboot , the hdd wont boot on its own so i boot to usb pick hdd then -f-v and or usekernelcache=no, it cant find kernel cache so i copy kernel from root of usb to root of hdd , still wont recognise kernel so i trial and error with some kernels till one loads ,.... i then get this (see pic ) any Ideas !! ps tried -x -f -f-v -f-v-x npci=0x2000 and 3000 then it hangs hi again ave been @ this since friday and cant get any joy ,... driving me crazy,... could anyone look @ this pic and point me in right direction please ,.. Im stuck ! just cant get the hdd with mavericks installed to boot or usb to install again gettin confused and tired .
  2. gonna start afresh dwnload fresh mavericks from apple ,... if i dwnl;oad fresh image and start again ,.. will i put ur rollback files in it b4 i burn it m8 and kernel ? cheers gonna have a beer first .. and 1 for u lol cheers
  3. tried what u said above m8 still same , is there a reason that it would have loaded up once then not load again ? the usb wasnt touched once it had booted up because i thought i had done it and didnt want to mess with it when it was working ,. but it just didnt load up again,.,. checked my bios with above a and its correct apart from i dont haveAHCI as u know and i dony have ENHANCED HALT STATE IN BIOS but i do have ENHANCED HALT C1E disabled ... what is SATA SPREAAD SPECTRUM MINE IS DISABLED SO IS PCI SPREAD SPECTRUM ...CPU ACTIVE CORE CONTROL.......BOOT FAILURE .... is it looking like i wont be able to do it ? ?. also see whjen i copy raw image to usb ,.. my usb then has three partitions on it partition 1=EFI file system is fat32 type GPT (efi system) status active part. 2 = 6gig file syst. other type GPT status none ( should this partition be active ) part 3= unallocated spare not in use is it is that correct ?
