Hello and a happy new year to all of you.

I recently got new Hardware and I'm wondering wether it will run OS X.

 

I got the following Mainboard: Intel DH87RL

And this CPU: XEON E3-1245V3

 

Mainboard should be fine for Ethernet and Audio as there are kexts for these.

 

What do you think?

Aren't there any other issues I have to deal with?

 

Well, then installing will be a fine Job doing...

I don't think so, if you say you already have the kexts for your ethernet and audio

 

maybe with your pci-e card (if you decide to have one)

 

see on OSx86 Wiki for more details  (Mountain Lion/Mavericks)

 

good luck    ;)

Seems to be a misbelief as actually I can't even get to the installation screen.

 

Neither using Clover nor Chameleon.

 

Due to booting in verbose mode is incredibly fast I can't even see the last message before rebooting.

You might have locked MSRs. See: http://www.insanelym...63cl-i7-4700mq/

Man, you are a f***ing genius!

 

Replaced myHacks mach_kernel by the one you provide in your Link and booted using -v -f npci=0x2000 - and boom, I got to the installation screen.

 

After installation rebooted to installation programm and copied mach_kernel from thumb drive to /Volumes/MacintoshHD in terminal.

 

Booted from HD with the same flags and I have a running OS X.

 

Still some adjustments to do but the machine is running!

 

Thanks a lot!  :drool:  :thumbsup_anim:

You will eventually want to substitute a patched mach_kernel instead of the kernel provided as an attachment, since certain features (iCloud... Messages... perhaps other Apple services) do not work with a built kernel, but do work with a patched kernel (strange as it may be).

Yes, I will give this a try.

 

Just execute the perl-script on the original mach_kernel, right?

 

I will have to use the patch every time I update to a newer version?

Yes.

Yes.

Edit: Clover has auto-patch for this problem with KernelPm option. I suppose it is possible for someone to add the same support to the Chameleon KernelPatcher.dylib module, although... that module appears to be closed source.

I will give Clover a try too after I got it completely running as I strongly prefer Clover with the experience from my actual combo in mind.

 

How do I know which value is the correct one for IntelAzulFB? I know I have to test each value, but what is the easiest way to determine whether it is the right one? Is the Memory value corresponding to the one I set in BIOS if the value is right?

I only come from HD4600 in a laptop context... no option to change anything in BIOS. I believe the best support on a desktop is with IGPU memory set to 64MB. You can make some educated guesses about the value, but in the end it comes down to trial and error.

Trial and error is ok for me ;-)

 

I'm booting fine to Mavericks. But graphics is shown as "Intel HD Graphics P4600/P4700 64MB". No kext is loaded and I have some flattering in Safari for example. So I think QE/CI is not enabled.

 

Problem is: How do I know it's the right value? Will graphic be Iris, will it have 1024MB or what else?

 

Everything else is working fine now. Audio (thanks to Toleda), Network and all Apple Services (thanks to your patch, which even endured the update to 10.9.1).

You will not see "no kext loaded" in System Information when it is working... Please note that the injection bootflags (IntelAzulFB, etc) have no effect without GraphicsEnabler=Y (assuming you're using Chameleon).

 Ah ok! That's good. Thanks a lot.
