Well i just bought a MBP 15 last week. So far it's cool... I loaded vmware it's okay but the loading and screen are way different. I would try Parallels but it cost money...At this point after buying this MBP machine i will have to wait or find some way to load it.

So far so good i guess .

anyone else having an issue booting from a usb stick since instaling mavericks?  I can put a known good bootable USB in (windows or linux) and it will not show up as an option when holding down 'option' during a reboot.  This used to work, I built a win8togo drive with this laptop.  Now nothing but the hard drive shows up... anyone have ideas?  Also the drives that won't boot on mine will boot on my friends retina.  Same OS version.
rm -rf /bin/laden

After some research I can confirm that others are also having difficulties booting from usb after updating to Mavericks. The solution seems to be that you need to install The rEFInd Boot Manager.

link: http://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/


Some links you might want to review before you install refind.:

http://www.mguhlin.org/2013/10/dual-booting-linux-mint-and-mac-os-109.html

http://sourceforge.net/p/refind/discussion/general/thread/f927547c/

Please let us know if this solved your problem as this will help when users are unable to boot a custom OS like THS-OS on Mavericks.

Well since I just got my mac i already broke it twice with software and had to reinstall the whole OS... hahah but so far it's running good for me. Seems the same as a windows box. I'm running vmware fusion and virtual box. run good on the machine.

Malachai,
I've been running all this stuff from VMWare generally too.  I just got Samsung SSD for the machine and DAMN it's a huge difference.  I just decided to try the boot from USB because I have been making a sort of "OS Keyring" with about 5 flash drives with different OS that I might need for various things.  Tails, LMDE, THS-OS, Win8 with Visual Studio, etc.

OE:  I've seen the rEFInd stuff but I'm not 100% sure I want to do what seems like replacing the boot loader on my mac...  I was able to use something last night called Mac Linux USB

http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-boot-a-linux-live-usb-stick-on-your-mac/

I got it to at least show me a drive in the mac startup manager.  It came up  as EFI Disk or something like that and was the typical orange "USB" drive icon.  It tried to boot but had some problem.  That's the furthest I've gotten so far. 

Interestingly the utility has an option to "bless" the drive which from my limited research seems to be the equivalent of marking a partition as "active" in the new OSX world.  Will keep playing with it but I'm keeping rEFInd as a last resort for now.
rm -rf /bin/laden

I have 3 Macs in my house and only one has Mavericks (the iMac). I had a couple of issues getting VMFusion to work so I chose to keep the MBPs on mountain lion. I will say that one of my MBP I took out the superdrive and put in a SSD and the performance in sick when I boot into Kali. I plan on sitting down working out whatever seems to be keeping Fusion from working on Mavericks. It could just be a setting I am over-looking. But as for performance, Mavericks seems to be a pretty decent OSX!

I did the same with my optical drive, I agree.  Single best computer upgrade I've ever done is switching to SSD. 

How are you booting Kali?  USB or what?  If usb what did you use to make the USB?

Yesterday put Os X Mavericks on my laptop HP Pavivlion (intel). Everything works fine except WiFi. I have a network card Ralink 5390 and it is incompatible with OsX. So I also have a usb Realtek 8187L antenna like Awus360H .How to make it work? I do not know what to think.

Have you tried using the drivers from the realtek website?

http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=1&PFid=1&Level=6&Conn=5&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false&Downloads=true


Looks like they are for OSX 10.4 and 10.5, but maybe they will work?

Upon further searching, it looks like 8187l might not be compitible with Mavericks - please review the links below, maybe they might help. The best option might be to install Windows 7 or XP, or a linux distro as a VM and surf the internet with added security.
Review these sites:

Good luck, and please let us know if you get it to work.

Thanks for your reply and for your help. I've tried everything on the links before. While I have nothing. Realtek drivers I have to drive, but I can not get them to work.
Probably better to buy a separate antenna is compatible with MAC.
