I am able to install Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard on this machine but got an error when trying to update it to Mac OS X 10.6.8. It wont boot up again.

When trying to install OS X 10.9 Mavericks, i cant get to the Installer. Using flags "-x -v GraphicsEnabler=Yes"
Error on screen stuck on "Missing Bluetooth Controller Transport!"

Installer Used:
1st: iBoot CD + Snow Leopard DVD
2nd: Unibeast with 10.9 Mavericks

Yes I am able to install Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks on this device...

Errors I got Stuck on: Missing Bluetooth Controller Transport!
Solution From the Forum and it works for me:

Boot -s. When you see the prompt "root:", then:

Type: mount -uw /
Type: cd /System/Library/Extensions
Type: mkdir intel_back
Type: mv AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelF* intel_back/
Type: touch ../Extensions

Reboot

Boot again with this flag: -v

Please provide complete details in your profile.

System: manufacturer/model
CPU: detailed CPU model + motherboard chipset
Graphics: all graphics devices + laptop internal screen resolution

For example, typical Ivy laptop:
System: HP ProBook 4540s
CPU: i5-3320m/HM76
Graphics: HD4000, 1366x768

Use CPU-Z on Windows to find CPU (Core iX-xxx) and motherboard chipset (HMxx). For a laptop, these details are important and affect critical installation procedures.
