10.9 GM Operation System Not Found

Recommended Posts

Hi,


I just downloaded the OS X 10.9 Install USB.RAW from TPB (md5 = 3236daa1ae495a71b6c7c64f9322abc7, and Its match with the original on the website) but had a problem with it.

After wrote it to my USB stick using SUSE imagewriter and set my bios boot to USB and I got this message: "Operation System Not Found" and stuck. Im not in the boot menu yet. just stuck there.


I already set my USB partition as a Primary & Active Partition but still no luck with the same error message.

I also press the key 1 after selecting USB boot but still got the same message.

My BIOS doesnt have UEFI/legacy setting, but it said in the website support secure boot (for windows8).


I read another thread here http://Olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=2238 there is a patch for previous release 10.8x) that have the same problem. but as far as I know there's no patch available for this 10.9 GM release.


My laptop specs:

Dell XPS L502x (ACPI x64-based PC)

Intel Cougar Point HM67, Intel Sandy Bridge

Mobile QuadCore Intel Core i7-2760QM, 3200 MHz (32 x 100)

Intel HD Graphics 3000

NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M (2 GB)

4GB RAM


Any idea what's going on here? I will appreciate any help/ suggestion/ solution.

Thanks a bunch!

Hi,


Yes, I have already set the partition become active, and its primary as well. but still stuck in "Operating system not found".

I dont know what you mean with "use another file in the USB" did you have another 10.9 GM version reelase? the Install USB.raw file I downloaded had the same MD5 with your release on the website (and ThePirateBay).

Is there any patch like you gave to this? http://Olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=2238 because some people had the "Operating system not found" problem and its fixed by this patch.


Thanks,

This 10.9 image uses GPT, so if your BIOS won't boot GPT disks in legacy mode, try UEFI boot.


The patch in this topic is for MBR images only.

Hi thanks for the advice,

The problem is my bios doesnt have the option to set/change boot mode UEFI/legacy. But only said "its support secure boot" (this used to support windows 8 installation) http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/t/19473013.aspx.

Is there any advice that I can work around?


I try 10.8 USB boot (http://Olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=1627) and it can boot and works fine. is it using a different boot mechanism than this 10.9 GM?

If you have working 10.8 you can partition a pen drive as MBR, restore the 10.9 image to it using Disk Utility (rename .raw to .dmg first) and do the last step of this guide (install Chameleon or Clover to the pen drive)

Great, I will give a try.

Thanks!


UPDATE:

I follow your instruction: format my USB stick with Disk Utility and make a MBR partition and I restore the .dmg file successfully.

Then next step I download Chameleon 2.2 svn r2266 (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/59-chameleon-22-svn/) and also the preboot.dmg file.

However when I install Chameleon targeting to my USB stick I've got the following error:

Install Failed.


The installer could not install some files in "/ Volumes/USBinstaller".

Contact the software manufacturer for assistance.


I google it and try to figure it out what causing the problem but still no luck.

Do you have any idea what the problem that I'm facing? I'm sure that my USB stick still fine (not hardware related problem because I can still see the restored OSX in my USB stick). I just got that error message from Chameleon installer.


Thank a lot for helping me out!

You can try using Chameleon Wizard to install Chameleon, or use Clover instead.

Hi,


Finally I manage to install Chameleon successfully and create the "Extra" folder in my USB root directory and then put the Preboot.dmg in it.

Finally I can boot to my USB. However my boot stuck in a black screen. I already try several boot options:

Verbose mode

Ignore boot cache

GUI

32-bit

Force 64bit

Busratio = 20

boot GrahicsEnabler= yes or no

PCIRoot=1


But still stuck in blackscreen.

Here's my screen shoot before in enter the black screen forever:

Do you have any idea what caused my problem?

I read in another forum about giving patch to mavericks on MBR http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/145-mavericks-mbr-patch/

Do I need to do this?

hello


If boot stops right before reaching the installer, or graphics aren't working right, delete video kexts:

ATI = AMDRadeon* and ATI*

Intel = AppleIntelHD*, AppleIntelSNB* and AppleIntelFramebuffer*

nVidia = GeForce* and NVDA*

Hi,


Thanks for the advice and I did that right away.

I boot in single user mode (in chameleon) and remove kext that you mentioned:

fsck -fy
mount -uw /
mkdir /kext_backup
cd /System/Library/Extensions
mv AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelSNB* AppleIntelFramebuffer* AMDRadeon* ATI* GeForce* NVDA* /kext_backup
rm ../Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache
reboot

 

then I boot with -v GraphicsEnabler=yes or no and stuck here:

Then I try another boot option with -v -f -x and then I've got kernel panic, here's the picture:

Im not sure that this is related to the SMC or IOACPI thingy. do you have any suggestion?


Thanks

Try using this kext (replace the original and boot with -f)

I can see my mouse pointer here and I can move it around. seems that I just dont have graphic here somehow. what do you think?


I tried to boot with -f npci=0x2000 or 0x3000 but still no luck.

Any suggestion?


Thanks.

Did you move all graphics kexts?


Try with GraphicsEnabler=No -f


Also try moving the kexts back in place.

Hi pernacabeluda,


Sorry just out of town for business thing, just get my hand on this stuff again :D

Thanks for the kext, that's really saving my day. It's works like charm. really thanks man! woo hoo ;)


I did post install as mentioned in this forum as well and went smoothly.

Next step is I want to enable my speed step feature and sleep enabler.

I tried to remove NULLCPUM and replace it with hacked AICPUM from 10.8 and using my DSDT but I've got famous KP: Speed step ERROR on blabla

I set generate c-states and/or p-states on my chameleon as well, but still no luck. just stuck with above KP.


any suggestion that worth to try?

Thanks again! this forum rock! :idea:
