ASUS N55SL odd black screen when trying to boot into OSX for the first time


Trying to hackintosh my laptop for the first time so apologies for being newbie. I've used The N{censored} version of Mavericks and installed (what I thought were) the right kexts and so on, but basically when I try and boot into OSX for the first time I get a while of loading and then it just cuts to a black screen.

Laptop Spec:

i5 2450M

Intel HM65 Chipset

NVIDIA GeForce GT 635M 2GB (might this issue be to do with Optimus?)

2.5" 500GB SATA HD

(If there's any other specs you need let me know)

What I've tried:







Getting pretty much the same result from all of these and if it didn't go to a black screen it would kernel panic.

Using -v, I attached a video of everything I get when I try and boot N{censored}'s 10.9 up, I also attatched a pic of what's on the screen the moment before it goes black.

Read that this forum was good for issues like this, if any of you could lend a hand it would be much appreciated!

Tried removing them and it just attempts to remove a load of stuff and fails because the file is "read-only". 'Singleuser boot -- fsck not done root device is mounted read-only'

Tried disabling it and it just goes to a black screen as per.

Sorry about that, my bad
