I would like to report successful installation

Maverik on this GA-X58A-UD3R.

 

I started from

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/289062-109-mavericks-simple-vanilla-hackintosh-install-guide/

 

everything is OK until point 10 included.

I confirm you must put GraphicsEnabler=No

In /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist on USB key.

 

Installation goes fine but first reboot gives KP.

 

So you need to launch an other OS (I used Snow) in order to add some kexts.

I have a ATI 5770 so I needed AMDRadeonX3000.kext and ATI5000Controller.kext in /S/L/E/

 

If you want Ethernet you need RealtekRTL81xx.kext in /S/L/E/

 

 

If you want ATA DVD to work you need JMicron36xATA.kext in /S/L/E/

 

 

Of course you need FakeSMC. Kext & NullCPUPowerManagement.kext in /S/L/E/

 

 

If you want sound: don’t put any DSDT.aml in /Extra and you need AppleHDA.kext (modified) and HDAEnabler.kext (From tonymac…)

 

All .kexts are in folder http://ul.to/9x2okqqm

 

Of course copy each .kext in /S/L/E/

When in there

#chown –R root:wheel  xxx.kext && chmod –R 755 xxx.kext

 

You can’t install chameleon from Maverik (Forbidden !) so do it from other OS and watch the install log (in Maverik partition). You may need some adjustments as indicated in the log.

 

 

reboot option –f

 

it’s done, you are in Maverick 10.9HD_DP5 all working

 

PS: There is also an update floating on the web 10.9_13A510D

If you try to install it : catastroph at reboot=shutdown you'd better make a backup before test !

:thumbsup_anim:  Great news!!! But I hope than when it comes out you guys end up with an easier way to have it running ... I can wait :)

hello DDI

 

i know and you know that InsanelyMac does not support tonymacx86

but this is a fast way to install Mavericks....

http://www.tonymacx86.com/374-[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]-install-os-x-mavericks-any-supported-intel-based-pc.html

 I report results here after:

All is working if you post install with multi  beast :

#####

Audio without DSDT ALC889

disk third party Sata

RTL81xx

 

 

ATA DVD works if you add manually ApplePCIIDE.kext.

I used kextutility 2.5.1 (mountain Lion) for kexts manual insertion.

 

Mavericks is very fast, boots 26 sec on my Hack.

 

 

leon321

 

 sleep  works too after a clean re install

moving to 10.9.1 breaks only audio, you must reinstall Audio without DSDT ALC889

I'm on Mavericks and haven't had any noticeable issues.

 

Anyone else eyeing the GTX 970?

Looks like people are using integrated graphics to boot into the OS and then installing the web drivers. Too bad I don't have integrated graphics! Maybe we can target boot over firewire to install them?

 

I really don't want to buy a new motherboard and processor just to get a more current GPU (currently using a ATI HD 4870).

Hello

 

a few posts above (646) I had random problems using my ATI 5700.

Hack frozen, only reboot as exit.

In system log a lot of things about graphic card.

 

I found the easy solution.

Just update graphic card Bios to last version

and problem never comes back.

 

You only need a second graphic card, could be a low performance

I bought a Radeon HD 5450 30 euros

for that.

 

Hope it can help.

 

Leon

I recently got this board since I found out about the Xeon 6 core "secret". So I have a this board + Xeon X5670.

Can someone who has used this board long term give some feedback about how well it works? Is it close to flawless?

It's the best board I've ever had.

I've just sold mine to go with Thunderbolt and UEFI, but it was a rock solid mobo.

OTOH, wich is "Xeon 6 core secret?".

Cheers.
