PS: this is my first hackintosh build and i previously was running snow leopard so i could get mavericks on the usb without a mac

Try booting with -v -f -x

typed in -x at the boot screen.

Just used multibeast but it did not work for me. I'm trying different configuration now. No sound. I know I have selected the correct Drivers.

Also I don't know how to get my video card to work at optimal. I'm presuming I must have to install some video card drivers.

What MB settings did you try? Please be specific, including the version of MB used.

Though vague, I recall tweaking a little of the BIOS settings to get things working without safemode boot (-x) during my fresh install of ML.

The two most important settings were disabling some Intel Virtualization stuff as well as having something set to AHCI.

Anyways, I've successfully updated 10.8.3 to 10.9 with no problems known at the moment.

Computer specifications:
Gigabyte Z77-DS3H
Intel i7 3770
Corsair Vengence 8GBx2
Samsung 840 SSD
TPLink WDN4800

Multibeast settings:

BIOS settings:

*Not sure if everything is correct, but it's working for me*
