Hello dear Hackintoshers,

I want to Hack my Asus K65CB laptop. However, I have this strange issue that when the Apple bootscreen has finished loading, my laptop screen goes black.

I already have tried booting with bootflags like GraphicsEnabler=No and PCIRootUID=0 but none of them work :(
I also tried booting with -x (and -v)

Is this because my laptop has an Nvidia 740m GPU? I hope someone can help me as I really want to finish this project of mine.

Thanks in advance!

Moved to Mavericks Laptop Support...

Is the nvidia chip dedicated or switched? (if you have also Intel HD graphics, it is switched)

I just knew I was in the wrong side of the forum XD... time for some glasses.

Ontopic: The Nvidia chip is indeed switched as my laptop also has Intel HD Graphics.

I'll go edit my OP with the official Asus page with al the specs.

You need to remove the nvidia kexts from the USB (NV*, Geforce*).

Then boot with:
IGPEnabler=N GraphicsEnabler=N -x -v -f UseKernelCache=N dart=0

Uhm, how do I remove the nvidia kexts from my usb :oops:?
When I insert the USB in my Mac, the USB only shows the Mavericks installation file...

Thanks for the help so far.

You cannot trust Finder.

The files are hidden. Use ShowAllFiles to see them or unhide them:
Code:
# in Terminal, assuming your USB is called Installer
sudo chflags -R nohidden System
sudo chflags -R nohidden Extra
sudo chflags nohidden mach_kernel

System kexts are in /System/Library/Extensions.

Thanks! I'll try that and report back if it works!


Also, do you think most of my laptop is compatible with OS X?

Alright so I have deleted al NVDA kext's (Because those are the Nvidia kexts)
But I still get the black screen after the Apple Boot Splash! :(

So, do I need to enter specific boot flags or what? I'm really stuck at the moment :( ...

EDIT: Sorry RehabMan I didn't see your post where you told me to use the IGPEnabler=N GraphicsEnabler=N -x -v -f UseKernelCache=N dart=0 boot flags! I have succesfully booted into the OS X 10.9 installer ! :D

I hope I can ask for further assistance when it's done regarding multibeast drivers and stuf.
Everything on my desktop Hackintosh just worked when I installed it so I don't have any clue how to fix my wifi, sound, boot menu, trackpad and stuf :S ...

WiFi: depends on having compatible hardware. Use DPCIManager -> PCIList to find out what you have.

Trackpad/keyboard: Need to install ps2 drivers. The ones you need depend on what trackpad is in your laptop. Look at the detailed information in Windows Device Manager.

Booting from HDD: http://www.tonymacx86.com/mavericks...nagement-sandy-bridge-ivy-bridge-laptops.html

Audio: Best results with AppleHDA. Google 'patch AppleHDA guide', collect codec information from Linux... search for AppleHDA that matches, patch DSDT as required.

Enabling graphics will depend on injecting the right ig-platform-id, which depends on your screen resolution.
