    The original installation media for Mac OS X Snow Leopard was a 10.6 DVD. The DVD was only updated once to version 10.6.3. In order to provide more frequent updates to users, Apple is now slipstreaming the latest version of OS X directly into the download. Upon fresh installation, no updating is necessary!

    If you downloaded Mavericks from the App Store prior to February 25, 2014, you most likely have 10.9 or 10.9.1. To re-download Mavericks and update your Installation App to 10.9.2, simply log into the Mac App Store and click Download. When the download finishes, the app will automatically open. The updated 10.9.2 Install OS X Mavericks App can be found in the Applications folder. You can then re-create your UniBeast installation USB.

      I used the fresh install approach and had great results. On one platform that all previous OS x versions would not allow sleep or the embedded bluetooth, 10.9.2 automatically detected the bluetooth, and now sleep works perfectly.

      ASUS P8Z68-V Pro Gen3 (modded bios)

      Used MultiBeast (without DSDT) to enable sound and trim.

      Unibeast to create the App Store 10.9.2 installer.

      Nvidia 650 Ti worked OOB.

      OS x came up with Mac Pro 3.1 profile.

      Going to install this on my main platform soon

      I just successfully installed a fresh version of 10.9.2 on my first Hackintosh. Everthing besides integrated HDMI seems to be working. I wasn't able to get picture or sound through the on-board HDMI port. I'm using an dedicated card for video, witch installed without a hitch.

      Hey Greg,

      Not too sure if your board has 2 HDMI ports, but I have the GA-Z87N-WIFI and using the top HDMI works. Try it out and it should work.

      Does this mean that Apple could slowly be moving toward opening up their operating system for all hardware? It would be nice to get all the integrated wifi and video and sound to work.

      Yes, you can simply update your OS - I have been updating OS X via the app store since 10.8.3 with no problems (granted I fix permissions and have to run Multibeast to restore audio drivers, etc)

      The purpose of updating the Mavericks app (and thereby updating your Unibeast flash drive) is so that you have an up-to-date rescue flash drive.

      I am about to build my first HackPro. I downloaded Mavericks last night and created my USB boot drive. I have to wait until all the parts come in to verify it actually installs 10.9.2.

      As a side note I have a MacPro 3,1 with a GTX570 in it. I had to zap the NVRAM to get dual monitors back post updating to the new NVIDIA driver. (331.01.01f01) and the CUDA update

      Here are my parts:

      I updated from the Apple Store from 10.9 to 10.9.2 for the second time. The first time I lost audio and I tried a number of audio drivers (usually Realtek DSDT free, ALC887/888b Current v100302 works) to no avail. I could try making an Unibeast 10.9.2 USB but that will take some time. Any suggestions?

      I just finished updating from Mavericks 10.9 to 10.9.2 via Apple Store and for the second time I lost audio again. I tried several audio drivers including the original Realtek without DSDT ALC887/888b Current v. 100302 to no avail. I'm trying to avoid creating an USB Unibeast 10.9.2 to save time. Has anyone had the same problem and how did you fix it? Much obliged.

      The full install is 5+ GB, the Combo Update is under 1GB.
      Before the slipstreaming of the OS we used to update with the Combo Update and that's how I did it this time too. Works fine.

      You run Multibeast again to install the sound drivers and magically they'll work again.

      Tried to update my USB flash drive to 10.9.2. Downloaded 10.9.2 to Applications folder, plugged the USB flash drive, reformat using Disk Utility: MBR, USB, Mac OS Extended (Journaled), downloaded UniBeast 3.0.1. Launch UniBeast, but the USB drive didn't show up in the destination to install.
      My last time to install UniBeast was for upgrading to 10.9, and no problem at all at that time.
      Why this time UniBeast doesn't recognize the USB flash drive?

      I had this problem before try reformating with GUID partition table then reformat again to MBR worked for me although you can just use the GUID partition table if using on a system with Mac already on it

      Sometimes for reasons that elude explanation (perhaps manual change of permissions or ownership), the audio kexts just refuse to be replaced. On your 10.9.2 system, go to /S/L/E and check on AppleHDA.kext. The version should be Toledo 887, and you should also have HDAEnabler1.kext. If not, then manually change the audio kexts to another name such as AppleHDA.oldkext and re-run Multibeast. I assume you're using uefi not a patched dsdt, but in either case, make sure you select the correct audio kext [887] for your setup.

      Thanks. Tried that also, but didn't work.
      It seems UniBeast can only display 3 destination drives. Three drives are installed in my computer already, and thus the USB drive is the 4th and is not displayed. I will try running UniBeast again next time when I get the chance to open the computer case.

      Hey Geoff,

      You'll need to re-run Multibeast to get your drivers back. After you've fully installed the 10.9.2 update from the App Store, open up Multibeast and use the same settings/options you did when you originally installed Mavericks. Run it, restart, and you should be good to go.

      What I'd recommend doing is saving the MultiBeast and your MultiBeast preset somewhere safe - that way it's always on hand for when you need to re-run MultiBeast and you don't have to worry about keeping track of what kexts you need to install whenever you do an update.

      Hope this helps.

      The Cupertino guys must have read Tonymac's site and the complains. Now not one issue with 10.9.2
      Thanks Apple's universal Windows hardware compatible software You might live in the West or far East, never forget using Uni and MultiBeast!

      Apple would only benefit if more people use their OS without buying their hardware. People like me even though I can afford their hardware would never buy their current lineup because they don't offer a custom mid-range model. It's either too low end or too pricey highend stuff like MacPro. My current Hackintosh setup cost more than 2 iMacs but I enjoy having the choice of picking what parts that matters to me instead of just getting a pricy iMac that has a weak graphics.

      Hey buddy, I'm have a very similar system to you and was curious if you had to use any bootflags or specific settings for the 10.9.2 install. I've been having a hell of a time but I'm a noob to this so I'm not sure what the heck is going on.

      My hardware specs are:
      GA-h87m-d3h (F7)
      i7-4770
      EVGA GTX 650 1GB
      2x4 GB Team Vulcan memory 1600 MHz
      Samsung DVD drive
      old G4 Quicksilver case modded
      500W PSU

      Any help is much better than where I'm at now. I've used -v, -f, GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No, etc.

      I'm getting stuck at [IOBluetoothHCIController][start] -- complete

      thanks

      FOLLOW UP:

      don't use VGA!!!!!!!!! Switched to HDMI and solved all my problems. Only used -v boot flag. 10.9.2 running smoothly after Multibeast! Thanks to community out there - couldn't have done it without your posts.

      That is incorrect as I have more than 3 and all are shown, you just need to scroll the window or increase the window size.
