phuong12 and alcanfane, could you please share your boot flags? I tried fixing permissions and all that with Kext Wizard but I still didn't get the mouse and keyboard to work when I booted with "-v". What other flags do I need?

And if you could share your graphics cards, that would help as well.

I booted in safe mode (-x). My graphics card is good old GTX 460 so I need GraphicsEnabler=YES and PCIRootUID=1

OK. Can you please upload your aforementioned kext files that you got from ML?

I tried that before, that's why I wanted your files, in case I ever changed mine on ML.
Oh well, maybe the "-x" will make the difference.

Edit: No joy. I tried "-x GraphicsEnabler=Yes PCIRootUID=1" and then "-x GraphicsEnabler=No PCIRootUID=0" and in both cases I got the same problem, despite my replacement of the USB files with those of ML. Maybe I should remove the AMD6000 kext once again.

I have a GA-H55M-UD2H mobo and I was also having problems with the Mavericks install screen and my mouse and keyboard not working. I used the DSDT method and took a copy of my DSDT file from my ML Extra's folder and placed it in the USB Maverick's installation Extra's folder and it worked! Both keyboard and mouse were working and installation went without a hitch. Currently working in Mavericks.

I'm having the same problem with the installation not recognizing my keyboard and mouse. I've been out of the Hackintosh loop for a while but could someone please explain to me where the Extra folder is on the Unibeast USB? When I open mine all I see is the Mavericks install app? I haven't been able to find the folder via 'show package contents' either. Do I need to manually create the folder? If so, where is the correct location to place it?

Thanks for any help
