Update Niresh Mavericks 10.9 to 10.9.4 AMD

Recommended Posts

Hi, this tutorial is made by me, try many ways and this way it worked, with my Niresh Mavericks AMD


Motherboard: MSI MS-7778 (Jasmine) 
RAM: 10GB DDR3-1600 
Processor: AMD A8-5500 3.2 GHz (3.7 GHz turbo up to) 
2 Video Graphics: 
Internal: AMD HD7560D 
PCI Express: GIGABYTE NVIDIA GeForce GT 630 2GB DDR3 128 bit GPU 
Sound: Integrated IDT Audio 92HD73E 
Hard Drieve: 1TB SATA



1) In the Mavericks backup's files and directories:


/boot* (boot, boot2, boot3, boot6)

/mach_kernel* (mach_kernel, mach_kernel.backup)





2) Download  OSXUpdCombo10.9.4.dmg  and install, this installation need to restart


3) Due to the previous installation, you must copy some files from backup, so for this you need to copy file from the another OS, install Paragon HFS+ for Windows (but I will not work for me), I used Ubuntu and this work fine to me.


4) Download Ubuntu 14.04 (32 or 64 bits), burn to DVD and boot from pc or notebook "Try Live CD Ubuntu".


5) Into Ubuntu you need to do this:


$ sudo apt-get install hfsplus hfsutils


Download and install manual "hfsprogs" package (hfsprogs_332.25-11_amd64.deb)

$ sudo umount /media/ubuntu/Hackintosh  (umount any device if you have mounted)
$ sudo mkdir /media/ubuntu/niresh
(/dev/sdb2 it's my partitions HFSPlus of OSx, /dev/sda it's my partitions of Windows)
$ sudo mount -t hfsplus -o force,rw /dev/sdb2 /media/ubuntu/niresh
(if you need remount partition, use this command)
$ sudo mount -t hfsplus -o remount,force,rw /dev/sdb2 /media/ubuntu/niresh
(if the partition is mounted read-only, type the following command, and mounted again and will mounted with read-write)
sudo fsck.hfsplus -f /dev/sdb2


6) copy the backup files to the OSx partitions:


$ sudo rm /media/ubuntu/niresh/mach_kernel*

$ sudo cp /Backup/mach_kernel* /media/ubuntu/niresh

$ cd /media/ubuntu/niresh/System/Library/Extensions/

$ rm -fr AppleMatch.kext/ System.kext/ Sandbox.kext/

$ sudo copy -fr /Backup/System/Library/Extensions/AppleMatch.kext/  .

$ sudo copy -fr /Backup/System/Library/Extensions/System.kext/ .

$ sudo copy -fr /Backup/System/Library/Extensions/Sandbox.kext/ .

$ sudo reboot


7) boot from the Mavericks with any the following commands:



-v -x -f

-v -x -f -s

-v npci=0x3000

-v npci=0x3000 UseKernelCache=No

-v npci=0x3000 UseKernelCache=No GraphicsEnabler=No

-v npci=0x3000 UseKernelCache=No PCIRootUID=0

-v npci=0x3000 USBBusFix=Yes

-v npci=0x3000 USBBusFix=Yes PCIRootUID=1



And that's it.

Greetings from Bolivia.

    • 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
