Booting into installation...

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

        So, I finally got 10.9 Mavericks installed using a myHack USB installer edited with oldnapalm's "boot" file and MBR patch. Installation completed normally, using generic Extra and removing all problematic kexts except for one that didn't apply to me at all.


        Now, when I try to boot into the new installation through the latest Chameleon on USB, it hangs at:

[IOBluetoothHCIController][start] -- completed
[IOBluetoothHCIController][SearchForTransportEventTimeOutHandler] -- Missing Bluetooth Controller Transport!

        Issue persists with -v, -x, -f, GraphicsEnabler=No, GraphicsEnabler=Yes, and npci=0x2000. I do have my SATA mode set to AHCI, as it hangs at "Still waiting for root device" if I don't.


        Can anyone help me out?




        Looks like I have to use a smbios.plist from a Mac model that uses an HD4000 to get into graphics (I read that graphics come right after Bluetooth). Is it possible to do so without having access to Finder?

*** EDIT ***


Boot with -s


fsck -fy

mount -uw /

cd /Volumes/your_partition_name
mkdir /kext_backup
cd /Volumes/your_partition_name/System/Library/Extensions
mv AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelSNB* ATI* GeForce* NVDA* /Volumes/your_partition_name/kext_backup



Replace your_partition_name with the name of your OS X partition, obviously.


If the name has spaces, use " "
ex cd /Volumes/"Mountain Lion"


Reboot with GraphicsEnabler=No
