Hi Guys,

at first sorry for my bad english i am coming from Germany and have some Trouble installing my first Hackintosh!

At first, YES i tried to find my Problem(s) here but no solution has worked for me yet.

Okay here is my build:

Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H
Intel i7 4790k
Geforce GTX 770 2GB from Windforce
Samsung 850 Pro 256 GB SSD
and two HDDs.


I tried to install Mavericks with the Unibeast Method and ended up with diffrent error codes trying to do some Troubleshooting. At first i enabled the gtx 770 and ended in some error with this error:

"/var/db/bootcache.playlist - could not find".

I tried diffrent boot flags (safe mode x=2000 x=3000) but nothing did solve my Problem.

Then i tried to install it without the GTX 770 but that did not work.

Can anyone help me or give me a hint what to do to get this work? I think the components are all supported.

Thank you :)

Check your BIOS version - You need F9 for your 4970K - Gigabyte

Good Luck

Wow that was a fast answer :)

in the Moment it is f8 but i have installed Windows right now (because i wanted to try if something is wrong with the processor) and this worked without Problems.

So is it important for OSX that it is f9?

The important thing is that Gigabyte specify that it has to be F9 to support that CPU.

For a deadbeef error add maxmem=4096 to your boot flags

In your case, I would connect the monitor to the onboard graphics DVI - VGA is not supported.

Boot with -v -x maxmem=4096

Post a picture of the screen when (if) it stops.

Good Luck
