[Success] Mavericks 10.9.4, ASRock z77 Pro, GTX 650ti, GT520, i5-3570k

Recommended Posts




I thought it would be helpful for other people to post my experience, and just a note this is my first hackintosh. I also read up on a lot of guides, and don't remember all of them, so sorry in advance for not giving you credit. 


My PC setup that I used to run Windows 7:

ASRock Z77 Pro 3

Intel i5-3570k 3.4 GHz

Gigabyte GTX 650Ti 2GB

Gigabyte GT 520 1GB


So here's a guide on how I got 10.9.4 working on my rig from clean Mavericks 10.9.0 , I doubt I'm doing it perfectly so you if you see something pointless please reply back.


First: ASRock z77 Pro3 bios 1.90 patched 


Here's a direct link to the firmware 


Second: Install Mavericks

The Unibeast way...


Third: On Restart start system with "-s" boot flag

The updates kept giving me a white screen so I followed this guide from this post.

reboot with -s boot-flag
then type
these and press enter
fsck -fy
mount -uw /
grafix backup all
After the restart you should be able to boot into Mavericks without any boot flags.
Fourth: Installed Updates, one by one. (Not sure if it'll work with just the 10.9.4 combo, I didn't try)
Download the updates: 10.9.1, 10.9.2 (not the combo), 10.9.3 (not the combo), 10.9.4 (combo)
When you restart, make sure you run the "-x" boot flag, especially for the 10.9.3 update. 
Fifth: Kext Wizard + Terminal + Multibeast 6.4.2
Using the Kext Wizard, in the Installation tab, drag and drop using the Finder, all the kexts from "Backup/Kexts/*" and "Backup/Graphic-Kexts/nVidia/*" in the box under "Select kexts to install" . (These are the kexts that "grafix" backed up).
I also removed the HDGraphics and Bluetooth kexts cause I think it was causing me problems. http://www.tonymacx86.com/418-os-x-10-9-3-update.html?p=811107#comment_811107. 
It's not exactly as that guide, but in Terminal I entered:
Type: sudo -s
Type: sudo cd /System/Library/Extensions
Type: sudo mkdir backup
Type: sudo mv AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelF* IOBluetooth* backup/
Type: sudo touch ../Extensions
Using Kext Wizard, in the Maintenance tab, select "System/Library/Extensions" and click the "Execute" button.
Using Multibeast do this:
Now restart and if you're religious give a little prayer. Hopefully you now have your new Hackintosh ready to go!
