Article: OS X 10.8.5 Update

Sorry, I beg to differ. Well, kind of. It's actually, a "yes and no" situation. I have been running OS X on 1.5TB for quite a while (I don't have a larger disk). There is a workaround. However, you are correct. By default, OS X does not run on drives larger than 1TB. I am sure that is subject to a separate thread, though :)

OS X works with disks bigger than 1tb very good, I have mountain lion since it was released in 2 tb disk at the beginning and now in a 3 tb disk. My problem starts when I installed 10.8.5 combo, I hace Chameleon 2.2 v2262.

Thanks

Update: I followed the instructions that are at the beginning of this thread - provided by Stork, even after messing it up by updating without following directions and it worked perfectly.

As an FYI, I selected this Audio Driver for my Motherboard:
>drivers>audio>Realtek ALC8xx>without DSDT>ALC887/888b>v100302 Current

So glad I figured it out, hopefully if you have the same problem, you can get yours fixed too!

Thanks Stork!!!!!



I accidentally updated without consulting this site first. I now have no sound. I am search the forum to look for tips to get this working again for me. I am unclear if I need to re-download 10.8.5 from my App Store, or if I need to download the combo update. I am pretty sure that I need to wait until the update for Multi Beast on Friday to get the extra drivers that I need to make my sound work.

Here are the stats of my machine (2 months old):

Graphics: NVidia GK104 2048 MB
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Q77M-D2H
(using onboard sound card)
3.49 Intel Core i7
8 BG 1333 DDR3
SSD 240 San Disk (partitioned Mac & PC)
2nd HD 1T (partitioned for Mac & PC)

Also - I want to know if I will be starting over from scratch, or if it just applies the update to my existing OS. I would honestly rather not start from scratch, but I will if I absolutely have to.

I'm hoping someone can help guide me in the right direction as to what I need to do to get my sound working with the new OS update.

I greatly appreciate any feedback and comments.

thanks

I used the combo update to update my h77n-wifi & i3-3225 running 10.8.4 to update to 10.8.5. HDMI audio worked without running multibeast but I lost my other output options. I of course ran multi-beast using the dsdt for my board, which is supposed to be for HDMI sound only, and restarted. I gained back my other sound output options (digital out, line out) but upon selecting the line out option which is what I am using to connect to my receiver, I dont get any sound over the line. Can anyone please help me? My TV doesnt have an HDMI audio passthrough that I can send to the receiver so my HTPC hack mini is stuck with terrible sound until I can resolve this.

EDIT: This has been resolved. All I had to do was select internal speakers as the output instead of line out. Easy fix.

Finally!! Got success with my P8P67 Deluxe i7 2600K AMD 6870 2GB Build. Initially, I kept getting "waiting for root device" error.
My method (for the most part as per Stork's #2 above):

1. Backup system!​
2. Remove:​
a) AHCI_3rdParty_SATA.kext​
b) GenericUSBXHCI.kext​
c) AppleIntelE1000e.kext​
3. Extract same kexts from Unibeast 2.1.0 using Pacifist​
4. Download and run Combo Updater​
5. Re-install Above Kexts in correct location - AppleIntel goes in IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins​
6. Re-install ALC889 Audio(With DSDT) via Multibeast​
7. Edit org.chameleon.Boot.plist to remove "npci=0x3000" flag
8. Reboot​

This works for me. Point 7 was the part that gave me success - as in I had tried all other points before and got the error above!

groslight,
I, too, have a GA-Z77-DS3H / HD4000. MultiBeast options are drop dead simple. On a fresh install, just choose:

UserDSDT or DSDT-Free Installation
Drivers & Bootloaders > Drivers
Audio > Without DSDT > ALC887
Network > Atheros - Shailua's ALXEthernet​

If you're updating, see my Post #2 which calls for using MultiBeast to just update the audio driver.

Finally, see page 3 in the MultiBeast Features document which comes with the MultiBeast zip. :thumbup: Or at the MultiBeast.com site (a best kept secret).

Unfortunately, for the MSI, ASRock and Asus owners...well, talk amongst yourselves.


Simple for you I have the same board upgraded 10.8.3 and .4 with no problem. 10.8.5 Will not boot. It comes up with UNknow CPU. Tried every suggestion. I am hoping the New multibeast will fix the issue.
Followed your post #2 Still no go. Revision 1.0 MB

Updated through Software Update, All good. Trying to reinstall the Audio driver, Multibeast failed to install the driver. Anyone else having issues with Multibest on 10.8.5?

I have a similar issue. Actually even though Multibeast says the installation has failed at the end if you close the installer and reboot then you will notice it was actually applied (at least in my case). Unfortunately the real problem is that running any installer that installs Kexts seems to throw an error now. In my case the Xcode 5 "Installing additional components" failed and the error log the resulted showed that there was an error installing a kext. Still researching a solution.

You'll need the updated (this afternoon) GenericUSBXHCI.kext for USB to work again. I've updated my Post #2.

TKS Stork, it worked perfectly: New GenericUSBXHCI.kext solved USB3.

other than that easy upgrade with SU, just did again ALC889 with Multibeast. 100% working.

timmillea,
Use the latest UniBeast (v2.1) which incorporates the latest versions:
Updated GenericUSBXHCI to v1.2.5
Updated AppleIntelE1000e to v2.5.4c
Updated AHCI_3rdParty_SATA to v0.4​

Thank you and done! That was another 2 days spent on this since my last post. I have made some useful progress but experiencing weird behaviour and this particular Haswell system is far from well.

I am at last able to boot 10.8.5 (yippee!!!) but the process is odd. I have to attempt to boot from the main (Fusion) drive with "-x GraphicsEnabler=No npci=0x3000 cpus=1" boot command line. It always fails. Then I try to boot from the USB Unibeast drive and it instead boots successfully from the main boot drive! This is the only procedure so far that I have found works. If I miss any of the command line options on the first attempted boot, then the second attempted boot also fails. It took me many hours to get to this point.

Then, iLife apps Numbers and Pages are broken. I cannot open any document or start a new one. The app opens and I can quit it, it may show a blank page with the correct document name but that is it.

OS settings, like my arrangement of my two displays are forgotten between boots. This is not a major issue but a possible clue.

Spotlight is also broken. Searching for anything brings no results whatsoever.

Then the usual Hawell issues: no sound in or out, no wi-fi (using the recommended TP-Link 4800 and shown as "Card Type: AirPort Extreme, Firmware Version: Atheros 9380: 4.0.72.0-P2P" under System Report but cannot see my Wi-Fi router nor can any other device see it when I create a network), the USB3 ports of the motherboard are dud except for providing power.

All permissions are correct. Every attempted repair shows no issues. Same with disk repair.

I am using this guide as a template for propagating to the two physical boot partitions of my Fusion drive.

The good: Ethernet and my graphics card work natively (no kexts) and I can print via USB or my router (computer-router via Ethernet then wireless to the printer).

This is what I have discovered so far.

Please help!!!!!

GA-Z77-D3H + GFX 550 TI + SATA3 SSD + SATA2 Zevo Raid 5:
Pretty tricky this time. Needed to get rid of my npci kernel flags, first. (Test with boot option -F, otherwise even safe mode kernel paniced. Never had that one before).
The safe mode was booting. As usual, the AppleACPIPlatform Rollback was required, otherwise the system hangs when not booting in safe mode.
After the 10.8.5 update i did reinstalled the last chimera ... but don't thing, that step was required.
The trick was -F (and then edit the /Extras/org.{TAB}) and the ACPI rollback for my system.
Everything is working fine now, as usual.
