[10.9 - Installation Troubleshooting]

157 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Okay......I used the guide and I've got it installed and it is running....ish. I have BT and WiFi but no en0. I too, just as the guide preparer, need to boot with -v -x -f to get it to run. Also no audio yet. The big one is that the graphics are very flakey with the GTX580/3GB. Hard to desribe, but while I have the correct resolution, the images on some things seem to flicker alot. Not sure what that's all about but I'll keep after it until I can find something. Anytone else having and graphics issues?

 

Thanks

 

R.

I've had success installing on a GA-Z77-DS3H however the new chameleon boot loader will not load OS X from the HD, only the USB drive, just quits immediately, no idea why.

 

Also I have no iMessage activation which is frustrating as it worked in the past.

Fresh Install.  I used the beta version of myHack.  It works great!!!!  Up and running with only a few difficulties .... still no nic.  But sound is fixed ... and I'm having trouble signing into iCloud, but that should workout soon.  Head over to myHack.....It works!  Thanks Conti

Strangely it will not boot regardless of what I do.  Latest Chameleon installed, made sure to move the packages folder over.  Crashes at the 'Starting Darwin' stage.

 

GA-Z77X-UP5 TH / Core i5 / nVidia GTX680

 

 

(Lion / ML both run fine on the vanilla kernel with only FakeSMC so not really sure what's going on here)

 

 

Aha!  Needed to disable the chamelon "restart fix" I had enabled on my ML plist

stuck in dsmos has arrived... any thoughts.. my hardware is on my sig...

try removing your chameleon.Boot.plist and booting with a few commands at a time... e.g. reach Chameleon screen then boot using flags GraphicsEnabler=Yes -f -v, remove your DSDT if you have one and make sure your smbios matches your hardware.

 

Place FakeSMC and NullCPUPowerManagement inside the Extras folder, without all your extra kexts, this will allow boot without a DSDT.

 

Why i'm asking you to do this? well the DSDT and SSDT i used with 10.8 no longer work with 10.9 and it either pauses just before desktop or crashes.

 

I'm just booting my PC with FakeSMC, NullCPU and minimal chameleon.boot options with smbios...nothing else. When you get this working then work on all your extras.
