  1. I doubt that very many of you will find this post very relevant, primarily due to the fact that I am running pretty dated hardware that, for the most part, is a very compatible build and hasn't been too problematic while running Snow Leopard. Mavericks, on the other hand has been unsuccessful to completely install. I had many graphics and reboot issues trying to get 10.9 going, until I discovered the BRILLIANT and Extremely Straight Forward Niresh Mavericks . By following his terminal line installation instructions EXACTLY, then being PATIENT in allowing this wonderful distro to do its stuff (that means not jumping the gun in assuming you are locked up when the verbose screen seems to be locked up at the 'AGPMController Unknown Platform' line). Upon completing the setup and rebooting, the start time becomes quite fast, but I was still at 10.9 and wanted to get completely up to date by installing 10.9.1, but as other sites have suggested, I did NOT want to make a UNIBEAST boot disk and install the current version that way. I chose to do it the simple and what now seems obvious, way. By running the NON-slipstreamed 10.9.1 upgrade avail able from Apple here - http://support.apple.com/downloads/DL1715/en_US/OSXUpd10.9.1.dmg This upgrade does require a restart to install, but it does NOT require a restart to COMMENCE the installation process. It closes all your apps and brings you to a grey screen where the upgrade is deployed. The progress bar said it would take 3 minutes to complete (actually it took about 9 minutes total). After a reboot I was up and going with no special commands or or procedures needed. Some say that you need to reinstall your Audio kexts but I am using an MAUDIO MobilePRE USB box for my Audio, so that was not an issue. I just think that Niresh and Deepak and everyone involved in making this site happen are simply The BEST! Your work is brilliant. Your guidance and assistance has been clear, concise and nonjudgmental. I am a member of all the major Hackintosh groups/forums, and they are all great communities in their own right, but none of them inspired me to have the confidence to jump into stuff I knew so little about and end up with exactly what I wanted, An Up-toDate WORKING Hackintosh as well as the personal satisfaction of having REALLY learned how and why it's working so well. THANKS for Everything!!P.S. I should be receiving a little extra cash soon and I will be donating what I can in hopes that it helps you to keep on doing what you do BEST!!
  2. First off, Thanks again to Deepak and all the geniuses here at Niresh12495! I am writing this from my freshly booted Mavericks install and I couldn't have done it without you!! My initial problem with the install hanging at [AGPM Controller] Unknown Platform required nothing more than PATIENCE! I was stuck at that same point when I needed to attend to something outside my home. I was out there for maybe 20 minutes. Upon my return ​my mackintosh was at the language select screen!! I simply hadn't waited long enough! Post install I had an issue while booting up. My screen went black (no signal detected) after the sound assertion line. But further reading in the forums here suggested I add the boot flags - CPUS=1 PCIROOTUID=1 GRAPHICSENABLER=YES NPCI=0X2000 and here I am! No Im going to read up on upgrading to 10.9.1 Thanks again you guys!!
  3. I am doing something wrong while working with the command lines. After starting in single user mode, I enter the command to get write access -fsck -fymount -uw / but it immediately returns with an 'ILLEGAL OPTION' message and the drive remains read only. I am able to navigate to the directory where the rogue kexts exists but cannot delete them from a read only drive. Your instructions are very clear and make perfect sense as I read them through, but as soon as something onscreen differs from your direction, I am completely lost and dumbfounded.I know you guys have REAL work to do and dont need someone like me asking you how to pilot a plane when I cant even ride a tricycle. If there is anything you can suggest, even if its a link to "UNIX COMMANDS FOR IMBECILES" or something, I am willing to try it. Thanks again for taking the time and having the patience to help.
  4. Wow! Your response was Instant!! I will follow your instructions and update you with my results. THANK YOU!! YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST!!
  5. First off I would like to thank everyone involved in creating all the Niresh distro's. Great work! I, too, am stuck at the [Agpm Controller] Unknown Platform. I believe that the AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext is the culprit and am trying to remove it from the install altogether. I tried entering the commands above and am also getting a 'write protected error. I am painfully inexperienced with using Unix commands so I thought I would try to remove them from the .dmg file but have been unable to get past the READ ONLY format. I tried creating a new disk image with READ/WRITE capabilities in disk utility. I tried copying the all files into a write enabled directory but that was unsuccessful. Using an app like pacifist gets me where I need to be but there is no delete option. Sadly, I don't quite understand what you mean by doing a FRESH INSTALL, because the AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext is still getting installed because of my inability to remove it from the installation image. Is there any advice you may have for me, be it commands I should be using or an app or procedure I could use to remove the INTELHDGraphics family of kexts? I apologize if I seem clueless, but thats only because I am. Thanks
