Hi,
I installed 10.9 on a
HP Compaq Elite 8300 PC CMT
- i5 3.2 GHz
- NVIDIA NVS 300
- 4GB DDR3 1600
- 1x Seagate Barracuda 500GB 7200RPM

I did not have any major problems (I will post a tutorial on a separate thread).
However I still have an issue: I can boot from the 500GB (Macintosh HD)
disk using the USB Unibeast stick but I cannot boot directly from the disk itself.

Initially I had a problem with chimera:
Code:
boot0:GPT
boot0:test
boot0:test
x2
boot0:error
which I solved it using the thread (Solution 1: Use UniBeast)
http://www.tonymacx86.com/25-boot0-error-official-guide.html

After that whenever I try to boot I got the attached kernel panic (same with -v)

I used Chimera 2.2.1 (both for the Multibeast and the boot0:error solution)


The org.chameleon.Boot.plist is:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
        <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>
        <string>Yes</string>
        <key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
        <string>Yes</string>
        <key>IGPEnabler</key>
        <string>Yes</string>
        <key>Kernel</key>
        <string>mach_kernel</string>
        <key>Kernel Flags</key>
        <string></string>
        <key>Legacy Logo</key>
        <string>Yes</string>
        <key>Timeout</key>
        <string>10</string>
        <key>GenerateCStates</key>
        <string>Yes</string>
        <key>GeneratePStates</key>
        <string>Yes</string>
        <key>UseKernelCache</key>
        <string>No</string>
</dict>
</plist>

Please note that I get the exact same beahaviour when I use UseKernelCache=Yes
and try to boot from the 500GB (Macintosh HD)
disk using the USB Unibeast stick.



Thanks in advance!!!!

Hi Sakoula,

I presume you're installed Mavericks?

Did you add the following option from MultiBeast when building your loader:

Drivers; System; Patched AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement; OS X 10.9.0

Cheers,
Mark

what options did you choose to get it to boot, I don't even get that far, as far as your options, search for the 4096 cluster size fix ,

update: I got mine to work,

8400gs low profile card, set f10 bios option under advanced/bios options to "clean boot"
use the following boot options when booting

GraphicsEnabler=Yes PCIRootUID=0 NCPI=0x3000 for the install and the subsequent reboot until multibeast is installed.

make sure you don't put a - mark between each option or it wont work, once installer loaded, chose the network card and the sound was Voodoo because the ALC221 chipset has no native drivers. however voodoo works fine, make sure to load the nullcpukext to prevent bios resets
