ASUS Sabertooth X79 - Ivy Bridge-E - 4930k

First of all, for 4930k (Ivy Bridge-E) you should only be using 10.9.2+ whose kernel supports IVBE. I've had alot of trouble trying to do a clean install using Clover but Chameleon/myHack works well. The rampagedev page has good info for Chameleon (but the only way I could get Clover to work in UEFI was to install Clover over the Chameleon install ... and into a FAT formatted EFI partition.

Im having trouble installing Mavericks(10.9.1) on my machine(sabertooth, 4930, 64gb ram, gtx 680). 


What I've done so far:


- Downloaded Mavericks(10.9.1) trough App Store.


- Downloaded MyHack and installed the installer on a flash drive.


- Replaced the mach_kernel on the flash drive trough Terminal. 


- Disconnected all hardware from my machine(except mouse, keyboard and ssd).


- Plugged the flash drive and tried to booth with: -v -f GraphicsEnabler=No cpus=1 npci=0x2000 


After this the computer hangs for a while on a grey screen, than it goes black...hangs there for 1 minute, it asks for my language, after I select it I get "The OSx Installation Couldn't be Completed" and it freezes there. 


Im sure Im doing something stupid but no idea what. Can someone help me? Do I need to do something on the bios?




You need to redo your myHack installation. I had the same issue, I suspect my pc went to sleep and knocked something off the counters.
