@ Fruitboi

 

Can you provide DarwinDumper of QUO mobo?  You can get DarwinDumper from http://www.insanelym...4-darwindumper/ .

Don't forget to select "Make Dumps Private."

 

Thank you for your time.

Hello everyone, long time lurker on this site, but this is one of my first posts. I received my Quo MB a few days ago. Today I installed W7 on a SSD, worked like a charm. This evening I flashed the custom bios, ran the 10.8 usb installer on a different SSD, worked like a charm. But I have two challenges: the first one is I cannot seem to get the OZ boot manager GUI to load (even though F12 works). 

 

The second issue is that F12 only works if I have a DVI monitor plugged in. If I am on a TB display, it seems to hang.

 

Are these known issues? Any known workarounds?

 

Any tips will be appreciated - but this thing is rocking! Thanks to everyone who has worked on it.

Can anybody confirm their CPU Multiplier and power management?   I can sleep and wake up fine, the CPU just does not throttle down while idle. The only way I know how to see this is via iStat Menus' Sensor widget

The Disabler.kext in bios blocks IntelCpuPowerManagement.

 

The question is on purpose?

I would assume its needed for installing from 10.6 because the cpu would be unknown to AICPUPM and cause a panic.

Has anybody ordered the board from QUO's website and received it ? Because shipping time is like one week and many kickstarters have not received their boards yet, just wondering

Ordered July 25th via website and recently received my shipping notice and alert that it has been picked up.

It appears they shipped 2-day USPS versus FedEx ground. Likely arrival on East Coast by Friday.

Hmm, anyone been able to get the audio to function under 10.8.4? HDA auto configure doesn't seem to work with this mobo. OS X detects the codecs but cant seem to figure out layout issues. Manually patching it ala the shell script does patch AppleHDA.Kext corectly but OS X still cant seem to make heads or tails of the port layout. ideas?

There is a whole bunch of information about how to patch AppleHDA right here on this website and it works with this board. Check the Hardware/ Audio Forum

True, but I have yet to find one that works with this mobo. HDA script patch, bootloader patch, QUO legacy patch, HDA GUI patcher, nothing has worked so far. Hence why I was asking if anyone got it working.

cwestpha, what outputs are you using for audio and did you follow the instruction for the PatchALC892 running it from / and using the correct folder?

Its ok I got it. Had to throw together an HDAEnabler.kext, ugh I hate doing it this way so nasty and breaks with every update. The entire idea behind this thing was its supposed to just work once you get the bootloader configured (and that was supposed to be easy since most modern loaders have some intelligence with auto configuring). I hope they merge the HDA edits into the built-in DSDT like it was SUPPOSED to out of the box instead of needing to do them manually. Their implementation of ALC 892 seems to be detected right off the bat by the OS, its just they aren't supplying OS X with the addition device description information to auto-configure it so we can see the System manager Audio Pref Pane auto-populated by at-least the native mobo stuff. Shouldn't be to hard since the other OSs will just skip the additional lines that don't apply to it and OS X will just grab and load it.

The problem is applehda is always updated and changed. You would need to add voodoohda if you don't want to deal with updates.

Okay, I'm not sure what I'm missing here.  I got my KS ProjectQ board, flashed the H3A.739M EFI image onto it, restored basic BIOS settings, and tried to boot off of a stock 10.8 flash drive.  It stops after the line

 

considerRebuildOfPrelinkedKernel org.netkas.FakeSMC triggered rebuild

 

Nothing after that.  I don't have a graphics card installed, just 16GB of RAM and an Ivy Bridge i5-3570 CPU with HD4000 graphics.  From what I've seen, it seems like this should just work.  The only difference I can think of between this and systems that people are reporting success with is that most seem to be using an i7-3770.  If it really needs the i7, I'll get one, but it seemed like another HD4000 chip should work.

 

Any ideas?

Oh jeez, what a rookie mistake.  I didn't realize the K/non-K distinction now included GPU models.  Well, off to Fry's to snag a 3770K!

Boot the install disc with the -f flag and that should take care of this.

Also, the non "K" version of 3770 has HD4000.

Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum. Just got a Quo motherboard and I'm trying to get OS X 10.8 running on it. Downloaded HermitCrab Z77MXQUOAOS.H3A.723M.zip and successfully flashed it, then used a USB drive to install OS X... I was able to boot with the USB drive and started the installer but never got past the first screen (gray background with Apple logo and loading indicator below it). I don't think it crashed as the animation is still going but it's been more than 20 - 30 minutes already heh so I doubt it's working.

 

Using a Sandy Bridge i3 processor (is Ivy Bridge required?), 2 x 4GB RAM modules and an Intel SSD.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks.

Having just gone through this myself, I am now qualified to say: yes, you need an Ivy Bridge processor.  Specifically, one with HD4000 graphics.  So, the i7-3770, i7-3770K, or i5-3570K.
