Hi, I have succesfully installed osx to my pc (mobo: asus p9x79 deluxe, but do not need wifi and bt, cpu: intel i7 3930k, gpu: nvidia gx690) but now I do not know how to installe drivers. Everything is working except usb 3.0, audio, have to use cpus=1 without it the os wont boot, and I do not know how to install bootloader, it always does kernel panic (maybe it was something different, installed more things at once). Could any1 help me please?


P.s.: the osx is installed on ssd, installed with #####, or if there is something easier just recommand me

So, yesterday I finally managed to nearly complete the drivers. for audio download ##### 4.4.1 and choose system utilities and in audio alc8xxhda + applehda rollback + in hdaenabler alc8-- (probably alc898 when you have the same mono) and restart. for cpu download kext beast + voodootscs.kext but you have to edit it (for me i had to change number in IOCPUNumber to 11) here is more:  (This is for the i7 CPU 

the numbers are as followed 
i3 =3
i5 = 5
i7 With 4 cores and 4 v cores =7 the other one with 6 cores and 6 vcores = 11)

 

however bootloader still does not work, as if it loads only part of kexts

I support all x79 boards via my blog:

Also when you download the DMG just follow the read me and you will be good to go. I would recommend a clean install before installing over what you have as some of the kexts that may have been installed may cause issues.

Tried your website as first (because it was the only kext for my mobo) but did not work followed it to the last step but after the ##### it stopped working

big news about the boot loader, it works, just make sure use the same flags (or modified) as for the installation process (for me I had to use -x -v cpus=1 GraphicsEnabler=No PCIRootUID=0 npci=0x3000 to install it, for correct boot loader I used -x -v cpus=1 GraphicsEnabler=Yes, PCIRootUID=1 npci=0x3000 and restart after boot, after boot without the flags, max with npci=0x3000 and simple edit your chameleon plist)

Did not boot is not a answer... were did it hang? Did you try with the DSDT removed?

i've got a USB with installation files  and tried to install ML

 

What did you do to get past the ' waiting for root device '  ??

 
in other posts people are talking about adding kext's  while in other post i made they said i can do normal install  ,which i did but it's hanging on waiting for root device..

big news about the boot loader, it works, just make sure use the same flags (or modified) as for the installation process (for me I had to use -x -v cpus=1 GraphicsEnabler=No PCIRootUID=0 npci=0x3000 to install it, for correct boot loader I used -x -v cpus=1 GraphicsEnabler=Yes, PCIRootUID=1 npci=0x3000 and restart after boot, after boot without the flags, max with npci=0x3000 and simple edit your chameleon plist)

 

Thanks for the info , now explain to this noob how to add those flags and where ...

i can see you done this before , this is the first time for me ..

Put the USB in a USB port on he back on the MB and not one connected to a USB header. Also do not use any USB 3.0 ports to install. 

 

There is 0 need to add any kext.
