[Guide] Upgrading to Mavericks on GA-EP35-DS3L

Update for 10.9.3: Same procedure as before....just run it from the App Store, reboot. Everything works like a charme. And the eject key on my Apple keyboard is supported again. Perfectly done! ;)

Is there any experience with the GA-EP35-DS4?


I've made a clean install on a test drive. Have no sound or ethernet there so far. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated. ;)


Yes, there is!

Now, I found out that you need the IONetworkingFamily.kext from your previous 10.6/10.7/10.8 installation for working ethernet - install it with tools like kext utility, restart - done.

For audio, just run multi...you know tool I'm talking about (any version) and select in the drivers section the ALC889/885 without DSTL. Repair system preferences and reboot - boom, there you go. Just forget AppleHDA.


Last thing is graphics. By default, Mavericks will let me boot in 1024x768. Looks kinda weird on a 24" so I changed the resolution in my org.chameleon.Boot.plist in /Extra to 1920x1080.

My graphics card (AMD Sapphire HD6850 1GB) is regocnized by the system out of stock, I've added a DSTL from my previous 10.8.5 installation - but I have no possibility to change to another resolution via system preferences-->monitors. There appears nothing - nada...rien...just nothing. :(  --> holding down the option key while clicking on "scaled" reveals three possible resolutions...better than nothing. 

I've managed to install Yosemite on mine and everything works except for Audio.  I'm using clover with mine and I can't seem to find the proper kexts for my audio. I've found a couple but they always seem to give me kernel panic and cause me not to be able to boot.
