Everyone knows that apple has announced to move on to his PowerPC with intel processor in the year of 2005 at WWDC to increase the performance of Macintosh systems like Macbook,iMac

What is DSMOS or DSMOS X exactly ?it is abbreviation for Don’t Steal Mac OS X.kext, sometimes error occurs as “Waiting for DSMOS” or “DSMOS has arrived”  is a file present in Intel-capable versions of the Mac OS X operating system which allow installation on one piece of Apple hardware only

Ultimate fix for “Waiting for DSMOS” or “DSMOS has arrived”

Almost every Hackintosh user suffered from this error “Waiting for DSMOS” or “DSMOS has arrived” this are the common issues for almost every Hackintosh System and this issue is caused most of the time by FakeSMC.kext and it’s a Graphics issue too on this guide i will show you how to bypass this error with few steps.
I figure out two Solution for this Error
Solution 1:-
Download the latest FakeSMC.kext and replace with the old one.You can do it by mac drive or From USB installer and Boot with Following flag “GraphicsEnaber=No”
If that doesn’t fix your problem, boot your mac drive with single-user mode(-s) and type:
/sbin/mount -uw
mkdir ~/backup
cd /System/Library/Extensions
If you have NVIDIA graphics then type:
mv -R NVD*.kext ~/backup
If you have AMD/ATI Graphics then type:
mv -R ATI*.kext ~/backup
If you have IntelGraphics then type:
mv -R AppleIntelGMA* ~/backup
mv -R AppleIntelHD* ~/backup
mv -R AppleIntelSNB* ~/backup
mv -R AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext ~/backup
Solution 2:-
Boot your mac drive using this flags ” -V -S ” and you go to single mode
fsck -fy
mount -uw /
mkdir /backup
cd /System/Library/Extensions
mv AppleIntelHD* AppleIntelSNB* AMDRadeon* ATI* GeForce* NVDA* /backup
rm ../Caches/
Note:- If your system have AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement then save it in backup

  • What do you mean with USB Installer?

  • The installer which you made from Unibeast or manual restore method

  • Hey Pratik, you made my day today! FakeSMC.kext is what my hackintosh turned out to have been missing. I've spent countless hours trying to find the issue and come across your site. Mavericks has booted for the first time! Thanks a million!!!! 🙂


  • Anytime time my friend 😀

  • hmm.. good article. but can't help my problem. i used albatron mobo. and with integrated gfx (intelgma series).

  • Yeah this error occurs due to fakesmc and power management i would suggest you to change those kext on S/L/E and E/E and try different version of those kext

  • already try all fakesmc version.. still didnt help. its quite ankward issue.

  • Try delete all GPU kext try with nullpower+fakesmc

  • sometime in other case, it would happen caused by any delayed disk..
    anyway.. ur articles has quite complete hackintosh guide thank for sharing.
    thumb up.
