I would suggest treating yourself to a new graphics card or asking Santa for one as the holiday season approaches. Preferably one that works out of the Box from the Buyer's Guide. Using GraphicsEnabler=No and IGPEnabler=Yes has caused me no issues.

Hi WW,
In this season I upgraged my system with a CPU Cooler and IOGear bluetooth dongle.
So today after setting them when I boot OSX 10.9 I see it is stuck in verbose mode.
It is saying the 'getCPUIDInfo: this is an unsupported CPU ........ power management may be incomplete or unsupported'
:banghead:
During that phase I hit Cmd+F5 to start Voice Over. It was saying that I am on login screen asking for password.
So I think OS was booted (I saw DSMOS arrived in verbose boot). But I think graphics was not starting on. WW any help please :oops:?

I did not change any of the H/W. I could not get to the desktop. So tried to reinstall.
Using your way only I was able to get the installer. Installer installed 10.9 fine.
But after reboot when I try to boot from HDD it again stuck to the same stage.
Though it is saying something about bluetooth but I think it is stuck to 'getCPUIDInfo: this is an unsupported CPU ........ power management may be incomplete or unsupported' :beachball:
I have taken a pic and trying to attach to the post may be later. As my sytem is not letting me do every thing.
Can you please help:rolleyes:

Regards
NicoX

This may have nothing to do with your CPU.
OS can boot even with those messages and even worste regarding CPU.

I may have to say that it is coming from FakeSMC.
If you have installed last version of FAKESMX Try to install an older version the one that was working

if there is no other OSX in your computer working use BOOT USB and come in MAVERICK install and repair permission
and try to restart

if you have another OSX running, try to use it in order to fix your other OS. By removing FAKESMC and reinstalling a working versioon
don't forget to repair permission

Most of the systems that don't use a CPU that is in the list that Apple uses will have this message with a good boot. I would suggest checking your Graphics boot priority in the BIOS and also if you can get into OS X using -x checking that the org.chameleon.Boot.plist is set correctly. More than likely a graphics related issue.

Thanks WW,
For your help and you are correct the reason may be graphics issue as I can feel Voice Over is working but no Graphics.

I debugged a bit tonight here is the outcome....
:!: I tried to install ML first (10.8.5) using your earlier post.
:arrow: Prepared USB and installed 10.8.5 in HDD.
:arrow: Then I kept BIOS exactly as you did only one extra Wake up on Lan = Disabled. I needed boot flag
"-v -x GraphicsEnabler = No" and I had to remove the IOGear bluetooth dongle. It showed me ML desktop then I used Multibeast to complete the job(for sound I used ALC 892, I supplied this for friends who is trying with the same mobo and suggesting forum guides for this. Do use ALC 892 not ALC 889 for GAZ87X-OC mobo. Otherwise sound will not some. Actually it was mentioned in WW earlier post, just copied :) ).
:arrow:I had to solve 'boot 0' error by old gothic way (this is also elsewhere in the forum).
:thumbup: That was a clean install :)



:banghead: But when I do the same steps for 10.9 it is again getting stuck.
:arrow: USB prepared and installed 10.9 into HDD (I have same HDD and I am installing 10.8.5 & 10.9 in two different parts).
:arrow: I can not come to 10.9 desktop where I am supposed use Multibeast.
I used boot flags as '-v -x GraphicsEnabler=No.' / "-v -x" / "-v" but every time I am hitting roadblocks :beachball: It comes to the black screen.
Please find the image attached for 10.9 during post installation with boot flag -v -x GraphicsEnabler=No. I tried with Intel Virtualisation = Disabled.. not sure we need that or not .
FYI I am using IGFX in Init Display in BIOS.

I will request you to suggest me some way to reach 10.9 desktop for post installation as here I am getting clueless :silent:

Thanks & Regards
NicoX

Hi NicoX,

You will need to use GraphicsEnabler=Yes for onboard graphics, or IGPEnabler=Yes in Mavericks. Is there a graphics card installed. After the installation, when it restarts and you select your USB in the BIOS/F12 boot priority for the last time then highlight your Mavericks installation drive, If you can try typing -x GraphicsEnabler=Yes and report back.

It is saying the 'getCPUIDInfo: this is an unsupported CPU ........ power management may be incomplete or unsupported'

You know what. Google search is such a nice tool... if you know how to use it:


plugin-type
Let us go back to Ivy Bridge power management for a sec, which introduced a new property called plugin-type. Apple used a _DSM (Device Specific Method) in one of their ACPI tables to trigger additional plugins to load (X86PlatformPlugin.kext and X86PlatformShim.kext). And we still need to set this property, otherwise the plugins won’t load (matching will fail) and you end up seeing this error in system.log:

ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::start – waitForService(resourceMatching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) timed out
WARNING: IOPlatformPluginUtil : getCPUIDInfo: this is an unknown CPU model 0x3c — power management may be incomplete or unsupported

Again WW thanks a mil :) It worked superb :)
You figured out the exact problem. :thumbup: :thumbup: (Ohhh for info I am waiting for my 760 to come so not using any GPU card on internal GPU only.)
What I was doing wrong was, I was waiting for OS to reboot again and let the boot screen comes. I should have used F12 to get to the USB. :oops:
Rest was cake walk :) Boot flags "-v -x GraphicsEnabler=Yes" I get the desktop then multibeast, fine to go with 10.9.

Just one problem in 10.9 is I faces is
:?: If I go apple menu and use sleep it wakes up after I hit any key in keyboard/mouse
:?: But it does not wake up if it is in sleep for long long time (like 45~50min) [I have done the plist change also... I guess followed all steps you said.]. I have to hard reboot only to get system coming back.

Am I missing any or it is also happening to you too ?

Hey Thanks PikeRAlpha,
Yes you are correct googling gives you answer but not always to a correct way :)
And I guess if all of us know the answer there will be no question at all right?
And not this post goes to upto mmmm 47 pages, till now?

No I have wake from sleep working well. On this thread we were going through a similar problem back here. See post #404 This may be what you need to do depending on which port you are using. Sleep has been working great for me since the beginning of OS X Mavericks release. This is because our systems are different but I managed to to figure out in the link.

I would first say try adding this in your org.chameleon.Boot.plist and test it.

Code:
<key>IGPlatformID</key>
<string>04160000</string>

If you still have the issue use the link I provided and remove the IGPlatformID.

Hi WW

Just got back from offshore to discover the wife and kids got me the bluetooth keyboard and magic mouse! I have both of those working great, But I noticed I have the 10.9.1 update waiting and I saw you installed it and just re-installed the MultiBeast audio. My question is if my audio is from HDMI to my monitor will I have to redo all of the stuff from Toledas post to get that working again or just the MultiBeast as you have done? Can't remember if you were using HDMI or not lol.
