Hi all. I installed mavericks on my laptop. I want to use ProBook Installer 6.1.13r3 but I dont't know which options I should select and which I shouldn't select. And of course I have problem with my Radeon 6370 graphic card. I cant find kexts for this card. Did anybody install mavericks on this laptop and can explain me in details which options select from ProBookInstaller and of course where find and install in right way drivers for my video card and audio drivers. I need your help guys because I want to use mavericks)

The ProBook Installer does not support your laptop.

Does your laptop have just the Radeon or both Intel+Radeon?

My laptop just have radeon graphics. But I thought that some tools from ProBook Installer are able to work on my laptop for my model.

Your laptop is one generation prior to the first supported by the ProBook Installer. The only thing you can use is the SSDT generator. You can probably use some of the DSDT patches, but you'll need to figure out which ones apply, if any. And you'll need to figure out how to make your Radeon graphics work with OS X.

No idea on the graphics question. I don't have any of that hardware.

Power management: http://www.tonymacx86.com/mavericks...-sandy-bridge-ivy-bridge-haswell-laptops.html

Audio: Best result with patched AppleHDA. Google 'patch AppleHDA guide'. Search for suitable AppleHDA or patch it yourself. Apply appropriate DSDT patches.

DSDT patches you need for AppleHDA: https://github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch
Apply: "Audio Layout 12" (change layout-id from 12 to the layout-id used by the patched AppleHDA)
Apply: "IRQ Fix"

Determine layout-id from patched AppleHDA.kext:

First you need to know your codec id in decimal. Then look in the Info.plist for AppleHDAHardwareConfigDriver.kext (in PlugIns), find your codec id under HDAConfigDefault (there may be many entries in a sloppy patched AppleHDA or only one). The LayoutID that matches your codec id is the layout id you need.

Info.plist where is this file?

Post #6 is referring to the Info.plist in AppleHDAHardwareConfigDriver.kext, which is a plugin inside AppleHDA.kext.

But you're probably getting ahead of yourself. First you determine your codec id. Then you find a patched AppleHDA for it. Then you determine the layout-id used by the author of the patched AppleHDA.

And one more thing) Maybe something was installed incorrectly from ProBook Installer because I can start up my system just with -f flag it doesn't start with default flag.

Like I said before, the ProBook Installer is not applicable to your system. Your laptop is not supported by the ProBook Installer.
