Mavericks not booting up on MSI GE60 2PE

Recommended Posts

Although I am attempting to successfully install and configure Mavericks 10.9 on my MSI GE60 2PE laptop, I have been encountering some problems related to Bluetooth. However, from what I have seen thus far around the internet, it seems to be an issue with the graphics drivers. If I boot Mavericks in safe mode using -x flag, it just works fine.

 

Some specs of my laptop:

Integrated GPU: Intel HD 4600

Dedicated GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M

Memory RAM: 8,00GB 1 slot 1600MHz

 

Picture of where the logging stops using -v flag (sorry about the quality):

Picture of my org.chameleon.Boot.plist (I booted using -x flag):

I have also tried GraphicsEnabler=No/Yes but it didn't seem to do much. As I found somewhere on the internet too, I might be using the wrong platform id but I am really confused about this, I don't know what to use. Do I need new kexts? Do I just need to change the platform id to a correct one?

 

If you need more information, just ask me I'll be glad to answer!

 

Thank you everyone.

860m is not currently supported, just add nv_disable=1 to boot flag, and IGPPlatformID is for clover, not chameleon, use IntelAzulFB instead for Haswell graphics, InterAzulFB is ranging from 0 to 15, usually working with 10-12 for hd4600, just try which will work.

    • I don't think the ten series work yet on Mojave, I have a Ryzen with a GTX 1050 and I'm staying in High Sierra for now.

      I have tried High Sierra and Sierra with no good luck. I had it installed once before but the issue was I couldn't boot into it, of course, lol.   Now I can't seem to get the installer to boot, but can get to the bootloader to enter flags. I've tried npci=0x2000  nv_disable=1 -v -f -x which ends up just crashing the thing and it says it's exiting.    I'm really trying to get this to work, I'm sick of Windows always having updates and dumb issues. My timezone won't even work right lol What?    Please let me know what other info you need so I can get this loaded!   PS: Tonymac banned me for discussing "illegal distributions" or using one or some crap like that... was a member for like 5 years. Really crappy of them. Not sure what they're even talking about. No warnings or anything. I think because I mentioned another site they got pissed lol    
    • I now see that my wifi adapter doesn't work as it's Intel.  I purchased USB-AC53 Nano which works, but handoff, even with functioning Bluetooth and wifi doesn't work.  Suggestions?  
    • @Niresh is there any work around for graphics for the gt1030 on dell optiplex 760?
    • @Niresh - my apologies for the delay.  I didn't see this until now.  I've made quite a bit of headway and am up and running except for my wifi from what I can tell.  Is this something you can help with?  As to the specs:   https://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/product-support/servicetag/6bx4y52/configuration   Thanks so much!
