  6. Hello! I downloaded the Mavericks DMG and exported it to the USB flash drive using ROSA Image Writer (win32diskimage dind't work for me). So far so good. Restarted, booted from USB, entered the amd64 -v boot flag and it boots, everything loads up untill the message "AppleNForceSerialATA: found 0 entries" appears, followed by the still waiting for root device message. Restarted and booted to Windows. Did the fix Niresh suggested with the BootDiskUtility. Formated my other flash drive, deleted boot, replaced with the fixed one, renamed it to boot, went to Extra > Library > Extensions (I think thats the path) and replaced the kernels. Booted from this flash drive, everything fine. A "press any key to continue" prompt appears. However, if I press a key, it just reboots my computer, no matter what bootflags I use. Any further help is appreciated. --// My specifications -- ASUS M4N68T-M LE NForce 630a Chipset AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE nVidia GT630 Regards, Eduardo.

  8. Hi, I have been struggling with hackintosh for a long time and once I found out about Niresh's distros I started to have hope again. I have tried in the past Niresh's OSX 10.8.5 but every time I finished the installation and got to the first boot i got a still waiting for root device error I have tried everything to get past of this but I can't [NOTE: I used this guide too https://www.hackintoshzone.com/page/apple/articles/fix-osx-hackintosh-still-waiting-for-root-device] I managed to install Niresh's osx 10.9.0 but now that I boot using the usb (yes the instillation was in a usb) I got a kernel panic!! I tried some combinations of those boot flags: npci=0x2000 npci=0x3000 UsbBusFix=Yes cpus=1 [to get to the instillation I always use amdfx kernel] but nothing worked I am desperate!! I can't get a pic of the kernel panic but as soon as I take one I will upload it. I use chameleon boot-loader because clover doesn't load the mouse&keyboard HERE'S MY SPECS: HDD: Seagate Barracuda ST 3000 DM 3TB ( GUID partition table OS: Windows 8.1 and this is where I want osx to go too) CPU: AMD FX 6300 Six-Core 3.5Ghz GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GT 610 RAM: 10GB (diffrent capacities 1GB-1GB-4GB-4GB 669,7 MHz) MOTHERBOARD: Gigabyte 970A-DS3 (Rev. 1.0 I think) (for more detailed info here is my speccy url http://speccy.piriform.com/results/HQjhtOMzRyYb6nuZOvSt8vk ) Sorry for my English
