Thank Tony!!!
How do you set "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" in MultiBeast so you don't have to enter it each time you boot?

There is an option in multibeast and I did verify this in my boot plist that it is there.

I verified all of my flags needed are there but still getting sleep monitor.

:(

Good part is for now I can enjoy Mavericks through USB boot and flags that way.

When Mountain Lion came out, the 68XX cards were having serious issues. If your CPU didn't have internal graphics you had to swap in a different graphics card. Anyone know if that's still the case?

I had the same problem, on the system information it says "Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 6xxx 1024 MB", just to be more specific :)
This time I had no issues at all, just a longer time to get to the installation (choose the language) after the bootloader.
I suddenly have some graphic lags, but I think that with next updates everything will work perfectly! If you are not sure, wait for 10.9.1 or 10.9.2 ;) hope it was useful, bye!

Upgraded from 10.8.4, everything went smoothly!

boot flag: GraphicsEnabler=No (probably not needed as this is the new default)

I think I am confused....
I have one mac (pre-2007 I believe) and one imac, both running 10.6.8
When I try to upgrade to OS X Mavericks, it says it cannot complete the purchase, and won't let me download the os x mavericks.
I know both my computers are intel based, and have enough RAM and hard drive space for mavericks. Unfortunately, none of them are "upgradeable" to os mavericks.
So, when I start from the beginning, I do have a 8G USB drive. I have downloaded unibeast and multibeast, but cannot go beyond step 1, line 3 which is to download os mavericks from the app store. How do I download it if macstore tells me that they are not upgradeable? I am sure the answer to my problem is simple. Maybe I should be using different procedure than the one listed here?
Thanks so much for all your help in advance.

Well well, you have real Macs. I also have 2006 iMac which I cannot upgrade beyond Lion. You are definitely on wrong site to find solution, sorry.

Hi, same problem here did you get anywhere with it?

Have you tried to use different USB ports while installing? This sometimes helps.

really beautiful!! Installation screen in high definition!!
I m on ASUS Z87I-PRO with Haswell i5 4570T
(and two macbook pro late 2011)

Only a question, if i want to install mavericks on my PC with ASUS that has a SEAGATE 1 TB with Windows 8.1 preinstalled, i might have a dual boot or i must install OSX and then reinstall Windows? (SIGH!!)

TY GREAT JOB!!!!!
