[SOLVED] Hackintosh doesn't boot: AppleKeyStore starting

Hi guys,


my new Hackintosh does not boot up to OS X 10.9.4 properly after initial boot up and setup through MultiBeast...


My config:
i7-4970k
GigaByte GA-Z97M-D3H
GigaByte 770GTX


I set up my Bios like it was described in several threads in the forum before and got to the Mavericks installation with -v -x without issues on the only installed SSD.


MultiBeast settings:
Quick Start > DSDT Free
Drivers > Audio > Realtek ALCxxx > ALC892
Drivers > Audio > Realtek ALCxxx > Intel 9 Series Motherboard Support Drivers > Disk > 3rd Party SATA

Drivers > Disk > TRIM Enabler > 10.9.4 TRIM Patch
Drivers > Misc > FakeSMC v6.9.1315
Drivers > Misc > FakeSMC v6.9.1315 Plugins
Drivers > Misc > FakeSMC v6.9.1315 HWMonitor Application Drivers > Network > Realtek > RealtekRTL8111 v1.2.0 Drivers > System > AppleRTC Patch for CMOS Reset Bootloaders > Chimera v3.0.1

Customize > Boot Options > Basic Boot Options Customize > Boot Options > Generate CPU States Customize > Boot Options > Hibernate Mode - Desktop Customize > Boot Options > Instant Menu
Customize > Boot Options > Use KernelCache Customize > Boot Options > Verbose Boot
Customize > System Definitions > Mac Pro > Mac Pro 3,1 Customize > Themes > tonymacx86 Black



But now, after the setup through MultiBeast, Bootup stucks/hangs at "AppleKeyStore starting" (I assume), picture attached.

Anyone has any idea?
Thanks in advance!

And I realized something else.
When I have Intel Processor Graphics enabled in the Bios, I get a Kernel panic during boot.
If I disable it, I can boot regularly until the AppleKeyStore starting error appears...

Using that graphics card there is no need in the integrated graphics and will have to be disabled in the bios integrated graphics on 9 series motherboards aren't supported without a patch and the same for audio


for the original problem reinstall FakeSMC from multibeast if you can get to the desktop with safe mode -x

That's why I disabled it, I have read in the forum that the graphics cause problems.

I tried to reinstall OS X / MultiBeast (with various options) before.
Right now, I can't get to the desktop. Tried a lot of boot flags (including -x of course, and in combination).

I can only install and get into OS X the first time after installation (with -x and maxmem=4096). After that, I always get the above mentioned error while booting...

Same here on ga-z97hd3, GTX 760, 16GB, i7 4790k. I can instal and boot with maxmem=4096 and -x. After running multibeast a reboot will fail with applekeystore error message. BIOS is up to date, setting are double checked. Don't know what to do.

Edit: Reinstalled several times now. Everything (exept audio) works as expected after vanilla boot. RAM, CPU and GPU are detected correctly in "about this mac", no flags needed. After runing MultiBeast i get applekeystore everytime, no matter what options i (de-)select.

Same here. Tried a new installation at least 20 times now, every time with changed MultiBeast settings.
I assume it has something to do with MultiBeast, why else should the first boot work fine (with -x -y maxmem=4096) and not anymore after installing MultiBeast?

I am having this problem on my GA-Z77-DS3H board. My problem started when I was trying to fix iMessage. Booting stops at AppleKeyStore with my new SMBIOS.plist file, but boots normally without it. I wonder if you have tried booting with: SMBIOS=null. Unfortunately, I have no idea WHY that stops my system. If this is way off base and doesn't help I apologize.

I was able to solve my problem yesterday!
I am at work, but I can post what I did when I'm back, if anybody wants to know?
