@ You can actually mount it inside the Niresh Installer Setup in Disk Utility and Format it to the name FIX and then proceed with the steps in transmac.

Open Terminal after you have booted into the Niresh Installer. Utilities > Terminal (on the status bar )

And now?

 

ditto -V /Volumes/FIX/Extensions/ /Volumes/Integral Courier Media/System/Library/Extensions/

ditto: can't get real path of source

I'm pretty sure the correct syntax would be :

ditto -V /Volumes/FIX/Extensions/ /Volumes/MAC/System/Library/Extensions/

Hi Everyone,

 

First I'll post my PC's specs and then go into how I was able to get 10.9.2 to boot after I updated from Niresh's 10.9.0.

 

PC Specs:

AMD FX-6200 3.8 GHz 6 core cpu

Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H Motherboard

8GB Kingston HyperX 1600 MHz memory

EVGA GeForce GTX 260

700W OCZ ModXstream Pro PSU

 

So I am currently just using a couple of old SATA 2 80GB WD hard drives. One was for my initial installation, the other is being used as a clone and the drive I do all of my testing on.

So the first thing I did was make the installer and boot from it. On initial boot, I only needed to use one boot flag which was "amdfx" (without quotes of course) and I used the optional but very helpful "-v" (verbose) flag to make sure there were no errors.

After setting up my drive I went to "customize" but didn't change much at all.

I enabled all but the ACPI sensor under the FameSMC plugins section. (HWMonitor shows all of my temps)

I enabled USBBusFix=Yes, UHCIreset=Yes and EHCIacquire=Yes.

The installer already used npci=0x2000 and GraphicsEnabler=Yes so I had nothing to add there for my graphics card.

 

After the mavericks installed, it rebooted and went right into my desktop with full qe/ci enabled.

So now I cloned the drive, downloaded the 10.9.1 update from apple and the 10.9.2 combo update. I updated the clone to 10.9.1 and booted from it to make sure it would run alright. It did, so I booted back into the main drive and installed the 10.9.2 combo update onto the clone. (going to 10.9.1 first may be an uneeded step for your system, so if you want to go straight to 10.9.2, try it out!)

 

This is where the clone stops booting properly no matter what I do. I would get panics or other odd errors, everytime I booted. I downloaded the fix from this post, but unfortunately it did not work for my setup, so I continued my search for a fix and found a kernel that worked perfectly!

 

I hope I am allowed to post links to external sites here, because everyone struggling with getting 10.9.2 to boot properly with and AMD CPU needs to try this one out!

 

www.osx86.net/file/3736-amd-10910911092-kernel-update-iii-with-full-sse4-support/

 

The instructions say to copy System.kext, AppleMatch.kext & Sandbox.kext from 10.9.0 to System/Library/Extensions on your 10.9.2 drive and then repair permissions and restart your System

 

This file also has a support.kext file included, but I did not use this one. I used the one from my 10.9.0 drive which worked fine.

I used kext wizard to install the kexts, backup the 10.9.2 kexts and then after I backed up the current mach_kernel and copied over this modded kernel, repaired permissions and rebuilt the cache.

 

After all of that, I rebooted the clone and waited with my breath held like I was updating the BIOS on a motherboard! (If you've ever had a motherboard BIOS update go sideways, you will understand!)

 

I am happy to say that I am writing this reply in 10.9.2 on my AMD FX-6200 based PC!

 

I hope this will help everyone else out there that are struggling with this update!

Hi there
 
I successfully update OS X 10.9.0 to 10.9.2 (Niresh Distro)
 
PC Config Specifications
CPU: Intel Core i3 3,41 GHz
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LX
Ram: 4GB Kingston 1333 MHz
GPU: EVGA Nvidia GeForce GT 610 2GB
Hard Disk: Seagate 2TB

 

Click on the link to see the proof

http://s2.postimg.org/l5lye3mmx/Schermata_2014_04_09_alle_14_08_58.png

 

Step by Step Guide:

1) Remove any trace of GPUSensors.kext from /System/Library/Extensions and repair permissions
2) Backup NullCPUPowerManagement.kext and remove it from /System/Library/Extensions
3) Download the patched mach_kernel for 10.9.2

4) Backup your graphics kexts by using the terminal because the combo update replace the patched kext with the native one:

a.       Create 'backup' folder

 mkdir /Volumes/ NameOfOSXDisk /backup

e.g.: mkdir /Volumes/MAVS/backup

b.      Select "Extensions" folder directory

 cd /Volumes/MAVS/System/Library/Extensions

c.         Transfer kexts to 'backup' folder

     cp AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelSNB* AMDRadeon* ATI* GeForce* NVDA* "/Volumes/MAVS/backup"

e.        Verify all kexts transferred:

 cd /Volumes/MAVS/backup

 ls

5) Copy the patched mach kernel, the graphics kext backup folder (which you find it in your OS X partition) and NullCPUPowerManagement.kext in a usb stick

6) Download OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 Update (Combo) and install it

 
Now there are two way to continue the upgrading process, you can use Windows or the terminal of the Niresh distro usb installation
 
7.1) If you have a Windows partition in your pc:
 
      a) First download Paragon for Windows, install it and reboot your pc

      B) Now you should see the OS X partition in My Computer

      c) Plug the usb stick where you have the copied files

      d) Now replace the mach_kernel in the Mac partition, then copy/replace NullCPUPowerManagement.kext and graphics kext in OS X Drive/System/Library/Extensions

      e) Now reboot to your OS X partition and Mavericks should be working

 

7.2) If you want use the terminal:

      a) Boot to the usb installer

      B) After the boot completed open the terminal plug and the usb where you copied the previous files

     c) Then follow the instructions:

a.       Verify secondary USB stick location:

     diskutil list

b.      Mount it:

     diskutil mount /dev/diskXsY

e.g.: diskutil mount /dev/disk2s1

Terminal will confirm the name of the disk mounted

c.       Select directory of USB stick's root:

     cd /Volumes/USBStick/

e.g.: cd /Volumes/CRUZER/

d.      Copy over patched mach_kernel [and NullCPUPowerManagement]

    cp /mach_kernel "/Volumes/NameOfOSXDisk/mach_kernel"

 e.g.: cp /mach_kernel "/Volumes/MAVS/mach_kernel"

    cp -R /Volumes/CRUZER/NullCPUPowerManagement.kext "/Volumes/MAVS/System/Library/Extensions"

                    e.      Copy the graphics kext

                             cd /Volumes/USBStick/backup

                             cp -R AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelSNB* AMDRadeon* ATI* GeForce* NVDA* "/Volumes/MAVS/System/Library/Extensions"

                    f.   Quit terminal and reboot to your OS X Partition

 

8) Now you should have Mavericks fully updated to 10.9.2. If you have some graphical issue or Audio issue or something else, use Multibeast or search on google the suitable kext for your requirements.

AMD FX-8350 8-core

Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 MB

20 GB Ram

MSI N560GTX-Ti GPU 1GB

1 TB WDC HDD SATA2 (Mavericks 10.9.2)

2TB Seagate HDD SATA2 (Windows 8.1 Pro)

Logitech Unified Keyboard/Mouse

 

I did exactly this, but I get severe performance issues From 10.9.2 that I did not have in 10.9.0. Every time I move the mouse it lags severely and clicks are delayed. Can barely use it. Upgraded Video Drivers from Nvidia Web Drivers and no difference. Also a thing from 10.9.0 Safari is unreadable because there are lines through everything. Looks like a printer running out of ink. No worries on that though, I use Firefox anyways. Much clearer. But it is "Working".

I am using the steps: Non-booting OS X.

 

Is there a similar way I can perform these beginning steps without having to use Windows? I would rather not waste my time dual booting my Macbook Pro with Windows.

I was about to attempt the update, but after reading these posts, I believe I am going to wait for Niresh to release a 10.9.2 patch/installer or something. My installation works perfectly right now, I don't wanna mess it up.

My system works so well with niresh 10.9.0 and I'm not too sure to update after reading this problem.

However, any chance to see a new Niresh distribution with 10.9.2 ?

@mtx4 Very slim chance of seeing a Niresh Distro just for 10.9.2 especially with 10.9.3 around the corner

What about 10.9.0 to 10.9.3?

 

Is there any solution?

 

Thanks,

When I follow the torrent for Niresh 10.9, I get Ubuntu, but the file name is "Mavericks 10.9 ISO .torrent". Do you have another torrent?
