GA-H61M-DS2 Rev 1.0 - Can't install OSX

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

 

I've tried to use all the tools to make USB boot disks with many versions of OSX (Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion and recently, Mavericks) but none of them work except for Snow Leopard.


I have also tried to make a boot disk manually.

 

Everytime I try to boot using the installation disk made, it gets to Darwin and show the partitions on the disk, which I choose the installation disk.

 

It starts all that loading and before the installation screen appear, it just reboots the PC.

 

I've tried all types of boot flags and none of them work as well.

 

Here are the hardware specs:


- Motherboard: GA-H61M-DS2 Rev. 1.0 F3

- CPU: Intel Core i3 2100 3.1 GHz

- RAM: 2x 4GB Patriot 1333MHz DDR3

- HD: 1TB Samsung 32MB SATA 2 HD103SJ

- Sony Optiarc AD7280 SATA DVD/CD Writter

- VGA: Evga Nvidia Geforce 210 1GB DDR3 Pci-e (01G-P3-1312-KL)

- Power: ATX 3R System Iceage IA450HP80 450W

- Wifi: TP-Link 150Mbps PCI Express x1 (TL-WN781ND) (Atheros 9285)

- Generic Card Reader (one of those "1000000 in 1")

 

I have only one HD partitioned in 4: NTFS WIN, HFS+ MAC, HFS+ MAC (tests), NTFS STORAGE


The partition scheme is MBR.

 

I've tried to use all the tools in their recent versions since the first update of my mobo, updated it to see whether the problem would be solved but to no avail.

 

Anyone got the same mobo (or specs) and succeeded installing any other version of OSX other than Snow Leopard on this hardware? (Like Lion, ML, or Mavericks?) (or am I just doing something wrong?)

 

I want to install Mavericks 13A603 (which I downloaded from the App Store).

 

Thanks in advance!

 

P.S.: I am currently running Snow Leopard 10.6.8.


If it's useful, I can record a video to show you guys exactly where and when the problem happens.


Thanks in advance!

You have a hardware compatible, but i don't know if card reader or wifi will work.

I'm gonna test them right now and get back to you.


BTW, thanks for the awesomely quick answers!


P.S.: Sorry, guys. I somehow related Olarila.com with an english language portal.


I could write in portuguese if you will.

Hi, guys.


I just uploaded a video of what happens, when it happens.


http://youtu.be/4CHZ3VIya6c


I'm not sure whether quality is nice, so better watch in 720p.


If you find necessary to focus one the last visible screen I can do that for you.


I'm also downloading the RAW image. When it's done I'll let you know.


Thanks!


EDIT: In this video, the boot disk was manually made by me using a tutorial found here at Olarila.com.

I also patched the MBR (But I've also tried without patching it. Nothing changed)

Video showing the same problem using a boot disk made using the RAW image provided here at Olarila.com:


Clover:

Chameleon:

Still no clue of what's happening, guys... :/


Been up all night trynna solve it...


Whenever and whatever way I try to boot a disk that contains Snow Leopard, it boots normally and I get to the installation screen.


Whether it's Lion, Mountain Lion or Mavericks, same catastrophe.


Anything else I should try or should I condemn my setup (or part of it)?


NOTE: The Revision of my MoBo is 1.0.


P.S.: Last thing I tried was to disable CPU's virtualization (it was ON before, but nothing happened) and checked all things in the BIOS were as fellow artur-pt mentioned (viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1804).


I just didn't find any ACPI 2.0 support / ACPI APIC support /Execute Disable Bit (NX bit, XD bit) / Enhanced Intel SpeedStep.


Closest thing to it I could pick up was: S3 State or something

Hi, Artur!


This MoBo doesn't have/use UEFI BIOS.


The BIOS is a common one, like those "blue screens".


I've checked all the options you mentioned in your first post, nothing's changed. I'm still stuck.


Gotta get some rest now, been up all night trynna solve this mystery and caffeine won't help me anymore. LOL


Well, thanks anyway!


P.S.: Did you check the videos? Any idea?

Artur, I believe so.


The HD is connected to the first SATA port using AHCI mode in BIOS.


Can I change the AHCI kext of the installer boot disk?


What should I do?


Thank you!

Put these files in S/L/E


You need install it, install with Kext Wizard.


Also Update Cache

Hi, Pimentel!


I should put those in S/L/E inside the installer USB Disk?


Just to make it clear, I still couldn't get to install the system yet.


I don't know if you watched the videos I've uploaded earlier about this issue but it won't let me get to the installer screen.

It reboots right before it shows up.


A dude from other forum told me there's no way of fixing it. That I'll have to buy another motherboard...


Pretty disappointing. But I still haven't given up. :)


Thanks!

Hello


Ok.


If you're using Chameleon as bootloader, put in Extra folder(it's in root folder)


If you're using Clover as bootloader, put in CLOVER/kexts/10.x(in this case x gonna be 9, because you want install MV(10.9)) and activate InjecKext in config.plist
