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

Follow this:
I assume that the name of your Unibeast USB is "USB". In Finder: Go> Go to Folder...> paste this: /Volumes/USB/Extra

In my case, using the DSDT from ML didn't help, but I'm gonna try a few more things. Never give up! :D

Yes Yes Yes, I finally got the mouse and keyboard to work. I have an H55M-D2H (BIOS F4) and a GT 520 1GB. Here's how:

1. Create Unibeast USB *without* Legacy USB support (yup, without it).
2. Copy DSDT.aml file to the Extra folder of the Unibeast USB (see post above for info on how to access this hidden folder).
3. In the BIOS I have the option "Legacy USB" enabled (even though I haven't installed it in the Unibeast USB).
4. Boot the USB with: -x GraphicsEnabler=No PCIRootUID=0. You may not need to add the GraphicsEnabler=No part since the latest version of Unibeast enables it by default (so I've read).

That's it. Happy hacking everyone. :)

Thank you :) I didn't realize it was a hidden folder. Installing now. Hopefully it all goes smoothly.

Edit:

Thought I'd include what I've done so far to get my setup running:

Unibeast options: OS X Mavericks + Legacy USB
Boot flags: -v -x GraphicsEnabler=Yes PCIRootUID=0
Extra folder with DSDT.aml


Is it true that you need Legacy USB if you have a first generation Core i processor? i.e Intel i5 750? I couldn't get the USB to boot without the option selected but I don't remember having to use that in previous versions of OS X/Unibeast.

Yeash, pretty much everything in the Unibeast USB is hidden except for the install file.

this!! thank you. i was pulling my hair out trying to figure this out. i was even more confused and went down a wrong path because when i prepared the installer with usb legacy support and messing around in bios it actually worked once and managed to install.

i have the gigabyte p55a ud4 bios ver 14. made the installer with no legacy usb. copied my dsdt from mountain lion into extras folder. all bios usb related settings enabled including legacy usb and usb storage support. the boot in safe mode with -x flag. my graphics card doesnt need graphics enabler.

the missing ingredient in my case was DSDT for this usb problem.

I have EVGA GTX 570 which is Fermi chipset as yours.

I assumed that you have another Mac to create Unibeast bootable drive.

My bootflag is GrapichsEnabler=Yes, ncpix3000.

Hope this helps

My board is GA-H55M-S2, and I met the exact same problem, thank all yours research, and give me the right information to resolve the problem by copy the DSDT.aml to hidden folder "Extra" in the Mavericks installation USB disk, and I enabled "Legacy USB support" when I made the Mavericks USB disk!!

Thank you guys!

How exactly do you find that DSTD file in the extra folder? I understand that you have to copy it and put it in the Mavericks extra folder but I do not know how to find that folder either. I am having a problem with my ps2 keyboard but the mouse works fine.

The DSTD file for my Gigabyte Z87-HD3 motherboard not on the list. How do I make one myself the file? Or are there any other ways of finding the DSTD file for my motherboard? I understand how Go to Folder works but how do I find the location?

Thanks in advance
