  1. Ok, I got it. Thank you for taking the time to help me. I really appreciate it. For some reason, my wifi card isn't being recognized.
  2. I don't see anywhere to modify UEFI settings in BIOS. Am I missing something?
  3. I'm very sincere and truly grateful for your help. I have been working on this for a while and I have googled many times how to install Clover. I have tried a few of them to no luck. Last night I got your ML guide and followed some of the Post-Installation steps. I used MacDrive to move files from your Mavericks ktext folder to the S/L/E of the Mac hard drive. I restarted and was able to boot into the newly installed Mavericks. Everything was kind of laggy though. I installed Clover to a Fat32 formatted EFI partition on the Mac hard drive. I moved the DSDT and the SSDT to the appropiate places as stated on your guide. I installed the ktexts using Ktext Wizard. I also moved the ktexts to the EFI/Clover/ktext/10.9. on the EFI partition. I still haven't installed the Lapic patch and SMBIOS. Does I use the mach_kernal from my USB drive for the Lapic patch? Also, my wireless internet isn't working. I also have to boot into Windows or Mavericks using my USB drive.
  4. I can assure you that I'm not lazy. I have googled all day. I just don't understand Clover. I'm a novice, not an expert like everyone else. I'm trying to learn this, but I'm having a little trouble.
  5. I don't know what this means, but I'm having trouble getting Clover to my hard drive. I have been relentlessly searching everywhere the correct ways to do it. This is all new to me. I can't boot into the newly installed Mavericks. Could someone point me in the right direction. I have been using the guide for ML, but the guide uses Chameleon instead of Clover.
  6. Can someone tell me what I need to do next. I have installed Mavericks onto my second hard drive. I need to do the post installation, but I'm not sure how to use Clover to do the installations.
  7. Clover is installed on my USB drive right now. So I use Clover to install all the post installation files? Is there a guide somewhere about Clover.
  8. I have decided to install another hard drive just for Mac OSX. I installed it tonight and installed Mavericks. Is there anything I need to do different since I'm installing to a dedicated hard drive for Mavericks? I'm still a little foggy on how to actually do the post installation. What do I use to install the DSDT, SSDT, Lapic patch, SMBIOS. Thank you. Almost there.
  9. Ok, the install was successful. Now do I keep following the ML guide or is there some other guide I need to follow to complete the Mavericks installation?
  10. I got it. When I created the partition in Windows, I just left it as unallocated space. I went back in and formatted the partition as exFAT. Now it shows up in Disk Utility. I then formatted it for Mac use and OS X is installing right now. Thanks for the help.
  11. I tried that. It shows "Current" and has 5 blocks. There is one block with no name and when I click on it it tells me that it is free space. I'm not able to format it. But it is the 100GB partition that I created in Windows 7 Disk Management.
  12. OK, I managed to get to the OSX installation screen. When it ask me where do I want to install, it only shows my USB drive. When I go into Disk Utility, it shows my 750GB hard drive. My Windows 7 is installed here. I created a partition in Disk Management for a 100GB Mac OS X install. It is showing up as free space. I'm kind of at a roadblock on what to do next. I don't want to harm my Windows 7 install. How can I get a Mac partition created?
  13. I have a hard drive with Windows 7 64 bit. I partitioned 100gb for a Mac OSX install.
  14. Could you tell me how to do this? Sorry, this all new to me.
