Hi,

I have followed your spec in 2012 (if i am not mistaken) to build my own hackintosh and the beast is still running well today. Just wanna know if there is a quick way to update my OS from 10.8.3 to the latest Mavericks without reformatting the entire thing.. (coz thats what i did previously to upgrade to 10.8.3) haha..

Thanks!

Warmest Regards,
Collymore

Hi thanks for your guide.

I have almost the same specs as yours.

System:Asus X79 Rampage IV Extreme
CPU:Core i7-3930k
Graphics:Gigabyte Radeon HD 7950

i prepared UniBeast 4.0.2 with Mavericks 10.9.5

I have followed your guide but i couldn't get chimera to boot until i installed clover into USB Mac install then i can get it boot up and able to installed Macintosh but after finish i tried to use MutilBeast 6.0.5 and used your MultiBeast configuration to install bootloader and kexts but again i still unable to get chimera bootloader to work.

BIOS setting - Secure Boot Menu - OS type i have to set to Other OS or i can use Windows UEFI but in Key Management i have to clear boot key management in order to get clover bootloader work.

Sorry for my bad English. Again can you help me with my situation thanks a lot for your help.

I got it working on my Sabertooth X79 (which I've set up with Rampage guides in the past).

-v cpus=1 npci=0x3000 PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=No

It froze with an "X" icon when loading the installer initially, but I unplugged all USB accessories, then switched off my ethernet/onboard audio/Intel Virtualization Technology in the bios. I'm sure some of my steps and/or commands could have been skipped, but I did all of that just to be safe.

Everything runs super smooth. Yosemite looks very colorful and "consumerish" but it's nice to work with a true visual overhaul after all these years.

What bios are you on? Try 4206 if you're not already using it and make sure your bios settings are correct. BIOSs after 4206 require a functioning AICPUPM kext to enable turbo in OS X so you can try my speedstep guide if you want to go deeper.
