Mavericks Only Safe mode Fixed!

Recommended Posts

Got OSX Mavericks working with My PC
For anyone interested this is my Hackintosh specs......
Intel 4th gen i5 3.0ghz
Gigabyte B85M-HD3
Zotac GeForce GT 630 2GB
16Gb Ram
1TB Segate Hard Drive
I Followed all the steps with installing Niresh Mavericks and every thing went well until the reboot after the  install. It just froze on the white/grey screen with the loading wheel continues spinning (not the colored wheel).
I then rebooted from the USB again and selected My Installed OSX Drive and typed -v to boot, to see where it fails. It stopped at the "bluetooth transport controller" So after quite a bit of searching for what to do next, I rebooted again in safe mode ( -x at the boot prompt).  It booted into safe mode no problems with full graphics. (When installing, at the drive install option, I didn't change anything in the custom section. I just left it as it was.)
Anyway in safe mode, I went to... go/computer/installed hard drive(mine is called mac)/system/library/extension, then deleted all the bluetooth kexts and tried to boot normally again but still stops at the same spot.....booted into safe mode again and went to the same folder and deleted all the AMD Graphics Kexts and tried to boot again but still no luck. Back into safe mode again and into the extension folder and this time deleted all the ATi Graphics Kexts, then rebooted again! It Worked! Booted spot on! Audio worked too.
I also have a TP-Link 821N wireless dongle that i couldn't get working  either...until after more searching I found that most USB sticks have Chipsets that are compatible with OSX. Mine has a Realtek chipset in it, and I downloaded the correct OSX driver from Realtek and that worked too.
So other than a few hicups, so far so good.

    • Sierra installed without any issue, but cannot get GT620 to work. Installed Cuda and Webdriver and boots without issues, but home screen wallpaper disappears and screen becomes black. Is this card supported on Sierra?
    • I get this message no matter what I do, I've tried changing my SMBIOS to a newer model to no avail. Anyone no how to get the second install boot to work?
    • This is my first time doing Hackintosh. I've several other machines running Mac using UniBeast and Multi beast. I wanted to try Hackintosh Vanilla. So far, no luck. I followed the Guide and MacPwn Mojave Guide. 
    • Hello! I wanted to install MacOS High Sierra, but the SSD does not appear in Disk Manager. I have a Samsung Pro 840 250GB. Is there a Driver for Intel Gigabit 82579LM Network LAN for MacOS High Sierra?
    • This is my very first post and have looked around the forums to my question but I wasn't able to find the exact specifics that I need. This is my very first windows/mac dual boot project. I chose to attempt high sierra and I hope I am posting in the correct area. High Sierra seemed to be the newest that is possibly more stable than Mojave so I chose that. I'm reaching out to the more advanced builders and experienced people. I'm currently running Win 10 as of now and bought a separate SSD to install a macOS on. Before I invest time and energy into this. I'm wanting to get the best recommendations on what OS I should choose , if my hardware will be up for the task and my best plan of attack. I'll be honest I'm not ready to bang my head on the keyboard for hours. I've been there and done that.  My hardware was some of the best at its time in 2011 and I'm not 100% confident it will work with a more up to date macOS I'm also concerned about drivers for my GPU.  All input is welcomed   Here are my current specs:   CPU
          Intel Core i7 2600 @ 3.40GHz    28 °C
          Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology
          8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 668MHz (9-9-9-24)
          ASUSTeK Computer INC. CG8350 (LGA1155)    26 °C
