10.9 Great OOB on AMD but no update

Recommended Posts


a big thanks to Niresh and this forum. A complete newbie here on hackintosh. after a few attempts my 10.9 works almost out of box on my AMD. my setup:



PC specs:

   Motherboard: Gigabyte GA880GM -USB3;

   CPU:  AMD fx4100 quad core

   Ram:  8GB corsair venegance

   Graphics:  Nvidia Quadro 400 512mb


best concluded method that worked:

Niresh 10.9 USB Mavericks. (created bootable on win7 using win32disk imager)

booted to usb (bios changes: disk : AHCI;  hpet: disabled;  igfx: disabled)

boot flag:  amdfx -v -PCIRootUID=1


Audio, network, graphic ALL WORKING PERFECTLY



now the part where i need help:   HOW CAN I UPDATE TO 10.9.4 WITHOUT BREAKING MY INSTALLATION. I won't know how to fix if it is broken.
