Stuck While Trying To Install OSX (First Time Build)

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to install Mavericks for most of the day with no success. Im running a Asus TUF Sabertooth X79, EVGA GTX760 4GB and Intel i7 4820K.


I originally typed in -v and got this error - http://i.imgur.com/8bEOZqY.jpg


I also tried "-v PCIRootUID=1 npci=0x2000" and it got stuck here - http://i.imgur.com/V53GY1a.jpg This is where I have been getting stuck with "iobluetoothhcicontroller" which I've been told is a graphics card issue.


I can't seem to figure out what I should do to install Mavericks.


Any help would be appreciated.

My best advise to you is picking which bootloader you use can make or break an install. Chameleon, Clover or (some tonymacx86 version will get no help around here).

I use Gigabyte boards but I assume an X79 by Asus is similar and uses the 1150 CPU.

Question is, how much work are you willing to do to get mavericks running?

Are you able to get onto a real macintosh computer to get started? If so, what is the MacOS version you can use?

I would give you my experiences if you would like them. PM me if you choose to!

Add nv_disable=1 GraphicsEnabler=No to your current flags

Use my install guide here:

-v cpus=1 npci=0x2000 GraphicsEnabler=No

 

And do not use any other installer other then my hack. 

 

And then use my x79 DMG here:

I support all LGA 2011 boards on my site.

Sorry for the slow reply I've just been trying many different things over the past couple days I only just tried this one now. Anyways, Rampagdev your method worked perfectly!! Installed with no issues (other than one ill get to in a little bit) and then I installed the DSDT from your site for Chameleon and now I don't even have to use any boot flags!

 

However I am still having one problem, my graphics seem to be lagging. When I move my mouse around the screen its choppy and slow, even when I try to open up a file it looks like the computer is running at 1 FPS. Any idea on a possible fix? 

 

EDIT: I just rebooted and it seems to have fixed itself! Thanks Rampage!
