    Hi guys, Im new to the hackintosh world,

    Just attempted my first installation but as the title of this post states I can't reach the installer

    I have tried the flags; GraphicsEnabler=No, -v , -x, npci=0x3000, PCIRootUID=0, maxmem=4096, nv_disable=1
    and
    -no-zp

    Nothing has worked sofar

    Am I overlooking something?

    Did you use UniBeast to make the USB Installation Thumb Drive? From where did you download Mavericks?

    Hi Stork,
    I downloaded the Mavericks installer from the apple appstore, and built the USB installation drive with Unibeast 5

    Is there any reason why you're using Mavericks instead of Sierra? I'm trying to recall if Mavericks will work on the current motherboards/processors.

    Yeah indeed there is a reason, most of the Audio software I use does not support Sierra yet

    I had a suspicion that was the reason. OK. Have you check to see if anyone in the Mavericks Desktop Support forum section has tried to install Mavericks on a Z170 system?

    Hopefully, one of these post might give you some insight. Good Luck!

    Thanks Stork, I went through the list you posted and indeed there is no-one with a z170 system running Mavericks on it...
