[help] Installing Mavericks on Microsoft Surface Pro

Recommended Posts

Hi There Guys,

Since i've seen videos online of osx 10.8 running on the microsoft surface pro i've decided to try installing 10.9 so i can make a proper guide and file package

i'm facing some problems i'm using clover 1888 to boot into an almost vanilla usb stick made with disk utility, just added latest xhci general kext fakesmc and nullcpu

but after the system loads the installer i get a black screen on the surface and a grey screen with stuck coloured wheel, no more.

any help?

i've tried booting in safe mode, removing geforce, ati even intel kexts but everything end up with a beautiful black screen :) HELP


for those seeking specs:

it is an ultrabook on paper with Intel Core i5-3317U CPU 128gbSSD and 4Gb of Ram
