(Working) Asus M3N78 SE (AMD + ATI)

Recommended Posts

I installed OS X Mavericks using Niresh Mavericks for Intel and AMD (USB installation):


Motherboard: Asus M3N78SE

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 9550

GPU: ATI Radeon HD 4850

RAM: 4GB DDR2 800 MHz

Mouse/KB: Genius SlimStar i815 (wireless)

Audio: On board

Ethernet: Realtek 8139



- Start USB installer with options: amdfx -v USBBusFix=Yes ahcidisk=1 debug=8

- Install Mavericks build with no changes in default options, keep everything as it is

- Restart to USB once again with the same options

- Open Terminal and delete AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext from /System/Library/Extensions/


In Terminal type:


  1. cd /Volumes/name-of-your-mavericks-partition/System/Library/Extensions - press ENTER
  2. rm -rf AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext - press ENTER
  3. reboot - press ENTER



- After the system reboots, enter your Mavericks installation with options: GraphicsEnabler=No

- Complete the installation and wait until the notifications tell you that the system is ready

- Find and download QE_CI Exotic Patch Mavericks GM and copy the two files from the downloaded folder to /System/Library/Extensions/ - replace the original files

- Open Kext Wizard and repair permissions/rebuild cache for /System/Library/Extensions/

- Reboot with no options this time, everything should work perfectly fine!


What works:

Everything works except logging in to iCloud/iMessage, full QE/CI, graphics card is correctly recognised, mouse and keyboard (wireless combo) work, network works fine...



- cannot login to iCloud/iMessage, none of the advices from the internet work
