  1. I went messing around today with my Asus N53SV Laptop that people have claimed to have at least Mountain Lion running on it. I decided to install Mavericks on it using the N{censored} Mavericks USB version. I replaced the extra folder with an extra folder downloaded from this guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/283739-guide-install-os-x-mountain-lion-1082-and-mavericks-1091-on-asus-n53snn53svn53sm-notebooks/ I chosen the file (since there's two files one of which doesn't have Nvidia support): Asus-Extra-Files-2-No-Nvidia.zip Don't ask why I went for this version and yes, I did make sure the BIOS was set to AHCI before booting into the setup. Either way, after booting into the installer successfully, I was able to choose all the settings I wanted from the N{censored} Mavericks installer (this included me not checking the Apple Smart Battery Kext Battery because of previous attempts Kernel Panicing the system after reboot) and installed to an external USB hard drive. After rebooting and filling out the Welcome Installer, I made sure I installed the, Wifi Kext, VooDooHDA kext, and the trackpad kext. I last looked at the battery kext and downloaded a version of the VooDoo battery kext for Mavericks 10.9 and higher and installed the two kexts using kext wizard. After rebooting, and using -v, after a few seconds it started with a loud nonstop beep and never went to the Desktop or Login Screen. I tried booting it up again this time with -v -x -f and Use_Kernel_Cache=false and this time it hangs at, "Incorrect Number of Thread Records." Does anyone have any idea on how to fix this or an alternative work around method? Before you ask, no I did not completely follow the instructions from the Insanely Mac page because the USB creation part was sorta broken since the video doesn't exist anyone following that I don't have a copy of Mountain Lion I only used the Extra folder to modify the N{censored} USB installer to help it boot up incase it didn't.
