Thanks for the tutorial, worked like a charm in my Rig described in my signature

Using this I've successfully made a true UEFI Penta Boot System in a single 1TB HDD containing

Mountain Lion 10.8.5
Mavericks 10.9.2
Windows 7 64 Bit
Windows 8.1 64 Bit
Ubuntu 13.04

Used Clover's on-the-fly AppleHDA Patch by Toleda from Github
Hats off to Him also

It seems that the Clover is going to be the Future for the next Gen Hackintoshing

Three Cheers for the developers of Clover!!!!!!!!!!!

Can FileVault2 be enabled with Clover as loader?
Thanks.
FV2 does not (yet) work with Clover [FV2 can be enabled but Clover cannot boot the encrypted volume].
There is interest from the user community in this feature and the developers have taken note.
Not sure what the current status is.

When I change it to this, I get a Kernal Panic. Do you know why?
(I am doing this on my USB Clover Boot until I get a USB keyboard to fix my "Boot0 error".)

Without "seeing" what the KP says I'd try changing DropOEM_dsm to "true". Also make sure your DSDT name is identical to your string - I typically make a copy and just rename to a DSDT.aml to be safe.

Clover success, but can't overclock CPU.

Hi all,

Successfully installed Mavericks on my system with Clover.

Specs:
GA-Z87MX-D3H
EVGA GTX 760 superclocked
i7 4770k Haswell
Ripjaws x-series 8gb (2x4gb) DDR3 1600
Intel Jay Crest 240gb SSD
Corsair H100i

Took a good deal of troubleshooting. Install initially went well, booted into OSX without a hitch. Ethernet driver wasn't working despite selecting the correct kext. Used clover Configurator, then system wouldn't boot at all. I could only boot into OSX through the UEFI on the external USB drive used to install OSX. Continued to boot into OSX through the external UEFI drive until I got the settings right with Clover Config. Only problem now is OSX isn't recognizing my UEFI system overclock. Changed the CPU clock speed to 4.3 in Gigabyte UEFI. It was working with previous Chimera boot loader. Any ideas?

This Clover thing was the best way for me to run 10.9.2!! Works fantastic and I'm getting great geek bench scores. (17000)

I followed the directions that Tony made. The only issue was that on the first boot I had a kernel panic. After disabling the ACPI fixes, had no trouble booting. And then one by one I added back the fixes I needed to create a stable system. And here is What I have.

GA-Z87X - OC Force
I7 4770k 3.5ghz. Not overclocked
32 gig Corsair Vengeance Ram running at 1600mhz
2- PNY GTX 780

I must say, I have not had a single freeze on the system. One note. I picked the iMac 14.2 as my system def. For me, things just work very smooth with this. I tried a mac Pro 3.1 but ran into stability issues.

The only bug I've had so far, is on a restart (not shut down) my second 780 card doesn't load. But havent had a issue in some time. I'll keep everyone posted on stability as time passes.

Tony is right, there is a steep learning curve but worth it!
