That is great...can you please share the UniBeast and Multibeast settings that you used? Maybe a quick walk through, I have never used UniBeast or Multibeast either.

I have a Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3R as well, 8GB's of RAM, Nvidia 8800GTS, with a 320GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.10. I was running OS X a few years ago, and I have been thinking about getting Mavericks running on this. Have you noticed any issues? Thanks in advance, and thank you to the makers of UniBeast and MultiBeast for making it possible.

Hi,

By the way, now you can following this guide first

BIOS Setting
1. Load Optimized Defaults
2. Go "Integrated Peripherals" -> "PCH SATA Control Mode" -> "AHCI"
3. Go "Integrated Peripherals" -> "SATA Port0-3 Native Mode" -> "Enabled"
4. Go "Integrated Peripherals" -> "USB Keyboard" -> "Enabled"
5. Go "Integrated Peripherals" -> "USB Mouse" -> "Enabled"
6. Go "Power Management Setup" -> "HPET Mode" -> "64-bit mode"

My step on install just plug the USB then boot, it will stop at a image page.

There, you must press your keyboard's "Space" Key, then will see a
boot with a text box

Then you must input this
GraphicsEnabler=Yes PCIRootUID=1
to enter the Installer.
Why not same as me just need PCIRootUID=1 is because your are using 8xxx series card, I am 6xx not need GraphicsEnabler=Yes


After first time install, 1 minutes later it will reboot, don't unplug your USB, this call "Second Boot" on the Guide above.

This time, using your keyboard's "->" key to choose the installed new OS X 10.9.1, also at the
boot text box
enter this again
GraphicsEnabler=Yes PCIRootUID=1

then you boot to your installed HDD, then run MultiBeast, choose the EasyBoost, and then Driver for your motherboard.

My MultiBeast Setting There, and I am post my GA-EP35-DS3R.mb file here, you can load it.
But remember click the "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" for your Display card since my .mb file haven't click it.
And sorry there, you must change the Audio to without DSDT

Then reboot done!


!!!! A note there, this Motherboard before install the MutliBeast, when it power off or reboot, MAC OS X will force clean your BIOS setting, just go in the BIOS again, see my first post's setting. save it. Then done

Until you finished your installed MutliBeast and reboot again this will fix!!



On this build in way install, only one problems for me like other, the build-in message on Mavericks can't login by your Apple ID.
I post there

Other important thing like Mac App Store, iTune Store will fine out of box!!!

I also tested it performance

Hi,
I have used your guide & .mb file but sound is not working :(
I have GA-EP35-DS3P but the audio is the same as your GA-EP35-DS3R.
I hope you can help me with this :)

I just installed Mavericks on my GA-EP35-DS3L; the one thing I had to do is add pmVersion=0 in the Chimera boot flags to avoid a kernal panic on startup.

Thanks for the guide!
