Yesterday I try to check Mavericks to install on my old Intel system and filed with unibeast "still waiting for root device". I installed it with my GA-P55A-Ud3L system with easy beast option selected and connect in to my Intel Q9550 system surprisingly it loaded into Desktop with full resolution and GPU Acceleration, without any further tweak and setup shows HD4600 i test it with GE yes and other frame buffers (Any One suggest me which is correct frame buffer for XFX HD 4670 with DVI+Dsub+HDMI) all works

The problem i am facing is MY 2.8 Q9550 shows 4.3 Ghz in about this mac and HD 4670 shows 4600 not 4670
I think MAVERICKS is more flexible than past OS X

can i solve this

help


EDIT

The "still waiting for root device" problem is solved by "USBBusFix=Yes" flag and the HD 4670 card booted in to installation window with " X" flag and after MB the full resolution and Open CL is available and i get full 1920x1080 display. with GE=No even dvd player works well

The problem i am facing is MY 2.8 Q9550 shows 4.3 Ghz in about this mac and HD 4670 shows 4600 not 4670
I think MAVERICKS is more flexible than past OS X is still exist

can i get an edited DSDT and GPU power management of this system

This is my replay to my own post It is meant for a description that what i am doing

I know almost all people here running behind new releases of CPU, GPU and Mother board but minority among us is trying their old builds to convert HACK. always i try to setup my old system with new osx release my testing rig is this Q9550+DP45SG with HD 4350, 4670, 5670 and GTS 250. GTX 560 i always do my experiment with this intel machine with HD 4670 because it is on my desk

I try 10.6.x, 10.7.x, 10.8.x and now 10.9.0 . the experiment with 10.8.xx failed, 10.7.xx succeeded. to gain this i have to connect my drive in my GA- system and install the os there even do all the post installation work there and connect back to my intel board and can run full resolution with Null cpu power management kext. Unibeast USB 10.7 or 10.8 failed to boot in installer screen .

To my Surprise I can boot into installer with 10.9. Unibeast usb and can install the os in my intel dp45sg board and get full resolution
without doing the tweaking and check various boot loader plist editing and kexts. It is almost native , with graphic enabler No and ATI frame buffer all the programmes are running even DVD player and Chess. Need USB fix in org.chameleonboot.plist other wise usb port only function with Keyboard and mouse.

After installing this I tried to create a DSDT for this board with MaciASL with help of various fixes from various sources ( All the DSDTs wich i downloaded here from various post cause me Kernel panic) but that one also do not solve the USB problem (Still need USBFix in org.chameleonboot.plist) and all other things CPU power mange is working, do AHCI fix so no need of third party Sata kext and no DVD player problem eject with F12. System spleep works but when wake from sleep black screen. The About this Mac shows 4.3 GHz speed instead of 2.83, i yhink it is cosmetic because LixMark OpenGL viewer ...e.t.c are showing 2.83GHz

I attach that dsdt here, if anyone with the same mother Board ( Bios SGP4510H.86A.0125.2010.0121.1927 ) can use it.

Hey, Rohith, I have that same board (DP45SG) with a Xeon X5460 (771 to 775 mod) which booted to 10.7.5 with a SL rollback but now I can only get into El Capitan with a Core 2 Quad Q8200 2.33. The Xeon X5460 just gives me a a garbled screen. If you still have that system what does "About this Mac" say your Q9550 is? Clover spoofs the C2Q to Xeon with a "Penryn CPUID 0x10676" I'm wondering if it is possible to spoof my actual Xeon X5460 to something else that El Capitan will like.


Thanks in advance!
