  1. To check if the community has had success with your hardware, google 10.9.3 (or whatever version you use) and HCL (or hardware comaptability list). Very handy for troubleshooting tricky peripherals.
  2. Mavericks install UEFI Clover

    From the install pics you posted, it looks like you have at least got Mavericks installed, (true?) Have you tried booting to safe mode (-x)? I have found with the i7 4770k processor that Mavericks gets 'hung' when trying to find the correct FrameBuffer. (Should be, from the documentation the Azul FB.... 10 for desktop.) There's a couple of things you want to try: 1) Try disabling your IGPU in bios and booting off your GFX card... this may help just focus on exteral GFX card and bypass the fault you're getting-- not sure about that. 2) ensure you have decent SSDT's built. I found this to be key for fixing a number of issues. (They are a lot less tricky than DSDT's. Use Maciasl)
  3. I had (have) similar problems getting my clover system to work with the HD 4600 IGPU. W/O the benefit of another video card,I found that temporarily disalbling the AppleIntelHD* kexts (I was not sure if it was the 4000/5000 or FrameBufferAzul kexts that were (interdependently) wreaking havoc so I moved them al to backup directory. Once booted into GUI and finishin the install (albeit with a rather blocky interface) I was able to restore the kexts. This doesn't fix the problem (even after rebuilding/fixing the kext cache) but it will allow you to boot 'normally' into the desktop with no flags set. Currently I get only 1980x1600 resolution and as the default graphic setting and the Graphics is recognized as "Intel HD 4600 with 7mb of VRAM...." I've beat my head against the wall trying to get IGPU to operate properly (various injects with Clover at boot time) but to no avail. Its worth mentioning that I'm using the smbios for a 14,2 -- which I thought, as a Haswell CPU, would cause the least grief. Also worth mentioning is that under Chameleon 2.2, I don't have the same issues and the GPU is reconginzed properly and all default Gaphis resoltions are avaiable.
  4. Many thanks, artur-pt. That did indeed answer the mail with the PARSEOP_ZERO and PARSEOP_ARG0 issues. Did you apply any one single patch to get rid of the errors? Now begins the long slog of figuring out right set of patches to apply to get the system up.
  5. Hullo smart people, I'm bringing up my system riding on a Clover bootloader. While I've got a stable system, I want to enable the IGFX on my Haswell i7 4770K (a HD4600 chip.) I believe using the standard patch IGX0 to IGPU will do the trick. No problems finding that patch in the repos..... in fact I've found patches for all of my hardware, but I still can't find patches to get rid of the last two errors in compile. I get syntax errors in PARSEOP_ARG0 and PARSEOP_ZERO. I'm a complete n(b)oob when it comes to DSDT editing but have read enough of the tutorials and guides to be slightly hazardous to myself... Can anyone point me in the right direction? Any assistance would be mightily appreciated.... Pre-Edited GA-Z97MX-Gaming 5 - DSDT.zip Generated SSDT.dsl.zip
  6. Help for Mavericks setup boot

    Check Genius Bar (Tutorials Section) for AIO guide. For guys n gals just starting out, it walks you through two great methods of installing -- from Chameleon and Clover.
  7. Well, getting older versions of the OS is up to you. No one here condone's illegal acquisition of old softs. Most of us here pull the OS off our real-Macintoshes. I have a couple of laptops and a Mini that I use to conned to the Appstore. I use those to create the install disks I use for my mackintosh. I use USB install so don't have any version older than 10.9.1.... Once you have a version of 10.9.x that you want to use, it only takes about 45 minutes to create an install USB and install on a new machine. WHile you are waiting you should decide which boot loader you wish to learn....
  8. Mavericks install UEFI Clover

    if you followed the AIO clover guide posted elsewhere on insanelymac, you should have no issues booting off your USB. Ensure you made the EFI partition on an MBR and your BIOS system is set properly. Just remember CLOVER while awesome is fundamentally a different boot process all together - you'd do well if you unlearn most of the stuff you are used to with CHAMELEON with respect to interaction at boot time. If you have a DSDT that was working before great. otherwise leave it out. You definitely need a config.plist (The AIO on didn't work for me after install - it worked fine for the initial boot off the USB.) Good luck.
  9. Sounds like you got your system booted. (b.1) gooogle: quick-fix-onboard-audio-9-series-motherboards to find a working solution for 1150 (if its not working.) (b.1) good. (c ) If your GFX is working correctly (try running any 3d game) there's no reason to be tweaking those settings. Hope all is right with your system. S_L
  10. 10.9.3 has IntelHD FrameBuffer issues. Didn't exist in previous versions. This is not a fix, but it will let you boot to desktop: Boot into single user mode (-s) & mount drive via on-screen instructions. cd /Volumes/{your Boot HDD}/System/Library/Extension/ mkdir IntelFB-Bak mv AppleIntelSN* IntelFB-Bak reboot I've also read that some audio is causing KP at boot after 10.9.3 If so you're concerned that might be a problem after boot, add mv AppleHD* IntelFB-Bak while you're at it.
  11. (a) which 10.9.x are you trying first with? 10.9.2/1/0 or 10.9.3? 10.9.3 has some special issues. ( your Z97 (and H97s) are different that the previous gens and have issues that the community is dealing with now. (b.1) Sound chipset, though technically the same as some previous ALC chipsets, evidently have a new vendor code, causing some issues with the exitsting drivers. (Kernel Panics) you can safely delete it. (in single user mode '-s') (b.2) Network chipsets also have similar issues to above though generally wont' cause KP. © have you had your gfx card working under a Hackintosh before. If not, I recommend minimizing the greif at boot time by removing it. Once you are up on your system (known working) you can add the GFX card back and then deal with those issues. (d) ensure you BIOS settings are per recommended (normally: load optimized defaults, ensure AHCI is enabled and disable VT-d, at a minimum.) Good luck.
  12. Are you using the Intel GFX as your Video Card? Had a similar issue with 10.9.3 on a Z97 board. couldn't even safe boot with 10.9.3... Ended up getting past that issue by removing all the FrameBuffer files for the HD4600 (I have a 4770k). Its kind of a brute-force fix --no finess -- but if you want to try to do it: boot to single user: -s (mount drive with on-screen instructions) cd /Volumes/HDD/System/Library/Extensions/ mkdir IntelFB-BAK mv AppleIntelSN* IntelFB-Bak reboot once up, fix permissions and continue with your install.
  13. TP-Link TL-WN851N - connection dropping

    Thanks. Got it solved (in 10.7.3 at least....) See the TP-WN851ND link in topics. Ta for the help!
  14. Well I'll be a monkey's uncle.... I finally got it working. I reverted all the previous changes back to 10.7.3 stock. Then I tried a IO80211Family that had only a modified AirPortAtheros40.kext and IO80211NetBooter.kext from OSx86.net (http://www.osx86.net...ros_ar9285.html), added pci168c,2d and pci168c,2c the PCI device list. Dumped into Kext Utility, rebooted and now I'm off to the races. - Airdrop working. - 300Mbps wireless speed, n/g/b and no hiccups yet. - WoL not tested.
  15. Greetings, As my Belkin FD5001 finally gave up the ghost after 5 years of mackintosh's I decided to replace the wireless card with a low-cost (evidently high-head ache) model. I'd seen good results of several ATHEROS chipset wireless adapters to I acquired a TP-Link WN851. I though I was getting an '-n' model but ended up with a '-ND'. The difference is actually the chipset. While I've tried about every AR chipset kext on OSX86.net, I've found nothing to work for me yet. I've tried different combinations of IO8211 and IONetworkingFamily and can't even remember what was original now. I've fumbled through changing deviceIDs in various places as well nothing seems to work. Can anyone suggest a good guide to methodically isolating possible problems or can point me to a thread I might not have read that might get me back on the wireless high-road? Much appreciated. Here's a screenshot of where I am currently.. 10.7.3 Gigabyte EP45-UD3LR (DSDT from Kakewalk 4.1.1) TP-Link WN851ND
