    Who wants to try out my OS X 10.9 DP on Mac Pro 1,1 guide? BE MY GUINEA PIG!!!! or not... your choice XD

    http://wp.me/p1NdqU-7

    Took me 14 hours straight to write and put together. That's right 14 hours non-stop folks... well anyways, if somethings not working or if I made any mistakes just leave a comment and I'll check it out and fix it.

    Don't forget to thank Jabbawok & netkas for their hard work!

    Many thanks for your efforts. I wouldn't mind creating a Mavericks Fusion VM from scratch. I suppose your guide can be adapted to create a Mavericks Install DMG that might be used for creating a virtual machine. I tried doing so twice last week, but did not succeed. The only thing I saw was the Apple logo, the spinning wheel and, finally, a crossed-circle forbidden sign. Do you have any pointers as to how to create such a DMG installer?

    Hi BATMANOFZURENARH,

    Thanks for your guide :)

    For me within point 4):

    4) Next we will need to bless the boot partition (Startup Disk).
    In terminal run

    sudo bless –folder /Volumes/BOOT –file /Volumes/BOOT/boot –setBoot –legacy

    should be changed with:

    sudo bless -folder /Volumes/Startup\ Disk/ -file /Volumes/Startup\ Disk/boot –setStartup\ Disk -legacy

    What do you think ?

    Looks like there was one search/replace too many.
    The actual syntax should be


    sudo bless -folder /Volumes/Startup\ Disk/ -file /Volumes/Startup\ Disk/boot –setBoot -legacy

    the "Boot" in -setBoot should not be replaced with "Startup Disk" :)

    Hi Jacques,

    You could be right but i made it as i mentionned and it worked, original is at netkas site by MacEFIRom and it was :

    sudo bless --folder /Volumes/Boot --file /Volumes/Boot/boot --setBoot --legacy

    Boot with a B was the name of the partition to bless it's why i replaced it with the partition name.

    Did you try it as you wrote it ?

    ----------

    No worries it works well, i was one of the guinea pig and Mavericks works now on my MacPro 2006 and on my Hack :).

    Congrats for your work batmanofzurenar!

    I hope that Jacques will light us about setBoot to be sure for others.

    Mavericks on Mac Pro 1,1 without Chameleon :) 64-bit. Modified boot.efi and Mach_Kernel. Test is going on now. So far no iMessage, FaceTime or iCloud due to NVRAM incompatibility. Will try to get that sorted

    @batmanofzurenar,

    I read again your guide up to the end, i saw your mods for blessing, but your credit :

    All credit is due to the incredible Jabbawok, netkas, and (some guy who’s name escapes me from the insanelymac forum)

    is missing someone who started all ML story for Mac Pro 1.1, whithout him we may won't be able to install ML and up, his Netkas forum user name is MacEFIRom, http://forum.netkas.org/index.php/topic,1123.0.html , thanks a lot to him.

    Man oh man I would not try to get Mavs to run on a X3100 MacBook.

    I think that is, bar none, the worst on-board GPU ever produced. It's much buggier than the 950 that came before it. I hated that MacBook and I was happy when I got rid of it.

    It's cool that you can hack anything to work with anything, though! Keep up the good work :eek:

    What kind of bugs then? I've been running my X3100 Macbook Late 2007 fine with 10.6, 10.7, and even now with 10.8 MLPF. No issues. I think you had hardware problems.

    Thanks a lot for the write-up, I used your guide as a base for installing Mavericks on my MacMini1,1 (flashed to 2,1).

    I had to replace the SMBios en dsdt with the ones for my mini and add the SL 64-bit kext for the Intel GMA 950.

    Now I have Mavericks running in 64-bit, albeit a bit slow thanks to the slow 64-bit GMA kexts. I'm planning to use the mini as a server so it's OK for me!

    -----

    Still looking forward to a new MavericksPostFactor for getting my other Mini up and runnings on Mavericks with better performance.. but maybe that's wishful thinking.. getting Mavericks to boot in 32-bit!
