The cheek? Wow, way to be dirty
I gotta say, this is the coolest project I've seen in a long time. Awesome job and much props!
I'm testing on my MacBook 2,1. I'll use the SL GMA 950 kexts, I'll let you know how I get on.
EDIT - I tried, but for some reason, either booting into the Chameleon disk, or the Install OS X disk resulted in a flashing Apple logo / no smoking sign / question mark folder loop. Any help? I did everything right, double-checked. I used a SMBIOS from a MacBook 4,1 which is supported.
i tested your "guide", step by step..
but when i reboot into chameleon disk, it says not found bootable disk..
what should i do for this?
i would like to be a beta tester of this app , im nowhere near affodring a mac so this is as close as it gets
@hackerwayne is there a beta to your MVPF app if thats what you'll call it
Had the same issue on my mini when trying it out..
I had this issue when trying to boot Chameleon of a USB drive, I guess there could be some incompatibility on certain drives.
I ended up partitioning the internal drive into 3 partitions (1 chameleon boot, 1 mavericks installer and 1 "Macintosh HD" for installation).
You will need to use GPT partition table (even though guides props for MBR on Chameleon), otherwise you cannot install Mavericks on any partition on that drive.
You can later on "hide" (a.k.a. leave unmounted) the boot/installer partition in OS X, google for guides.
Still wait patch for my MacBook 2,1
where i can get X3100 driver and audio driver for mavericks?
Any chance you could share the Mavericks boot.efi?
I don't need anything else, and won't bother with further questions, but I do need the patched boot.efi.
Thanks in advance!
I've been able to instal Mavericks on my Black MB 3,1. Did a clean install. Did all updates to DP4 and still runs fine.
Installation was pretty easy, just had to modify the PlatformSupport.plist on CoreServices and com.apple.recovery.boot, and InstallableMachines.plist (locate in System/Instalation/Packages/) and modify OSInstall.mpkg to have the installer run.
After installing, just had to replace the PlatformSupport.plist on the HD and it worked just fine!
Problems: Graphics and sound not working out of the box.
Placed the SL 64bit kexts, no improvement besides showing that I was using the built-in display, had the GMA X3100 and external monitors now work.
Will try the MLPostFactor kexts and OpenGL.framework and see what happens...
Placed the AppleHDA.kext from the MLPostFactor, no good yet... Maybe lacking other dependencies? Still working on that...
I have no problem in helping you hackerwayne!
Got sound working, but no luck with graphics.
Tried replacing OpenCL and OpenGL frameworks, and placing the kexts from the v0.3 MLPF but no luck, Finder just crashes.
So I'm stuck with the SL 64bit kexts until this project goes further...
EDIT: No sleep too.
Files from MLPF won't work as thats designed for 32-bit kernels. MVPF is in the works and will only be released as beta after GM version of Mavericks.
Yup, I remembered that the MLPF files wouldn't help unless I could get a 32-bit kernel running on Mavericks...
Anyway, I have a MacBook 3,1 and can help you out with the testing on this platform.
Hope to good news from this project of your, just like MLPF!
What did you do to get sound working?
I've installed Mavericks on a Mini 1,1 and I'm missing sound and wifi.
I have the SL 64-bit GMA950 kext running slow but good enough (will be a headless server). I think the sleep issue is caused by the graphics kext not being fully operational.
As you may or may not know Filevault to encrypt user account is unsupported with MLpostfactor (I tested myself, mac os just won't allow to reboot after activating Filevault).
Do you plan to make this an available feature with Maverick or it's a no go?
I ask this question in order to know if should buy Macfort or wait for Maverickpostfactor.
No go for MLPF. Very buggy on MVPF
Thanks a lot to you, guys.
I surely will try it when 10.9.4 will be released. Thanks for making my MacBook live longer, so I don't have to worry about getting a new computer.
I will donate to you soon)
I just upgraded my Mac Pro 1,2 from 10.8.4 to Mavericks Developer Preview 6 and i it's without problems so far.
Hi, what guide/tutorial did you follow? Cheers
Installing without boot screen
Hey guys. I've been fine on Lion for ages with my 1,1 but Apple have finally forced me to upgrade because Xcode 5 which I use a lot will only work on 10.8 or higher.
My problem is that I have an unflashed PC HD5770 as my graphics card, so I have no boot screen. This has been no problem for me until now, but the install process for Mavericks has this bit:
1) Now re-boot your Mac Pro and hold down the option key on your keyboard to bring up the list of drives.
2) Select Startup Disk, then tap the F8 key repeatedly until you see a list of bootable drives.
Anyone know how I can do this without a boot screen?
I'd like to try when Mavericks comes out. Is everything working with your hack: audio, wifi, sleep, iCloud/Mac App Store/Messages?
Thanks for you help.
GM is out wahooo!
Wondering if that still means you are releasing beta soon? Thanks
Just updated my Mac Pro 1,2 to GM build, no problems so far
Any progress as the GM is out now? Not impatient just curious
