Finally! Here's how I resolved the issue without removing the graphic card.

Bec. I knew how close I am to the finish line before getting black screen not without nv_disable=1

 

 

Download the latest El Capitan 10.11.3

Download the latest Nvidia Graphic Driver

Create bootable usb

Boot clover with nv_disable=1

Install the OSX

Install the latest Nvdia graphic driver provided for 10.11.3 El Capitan

Edit the AppleGraphicsControl.kext which is located at

 

/System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsControl.kext

/Contents/PlugIns/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/Info.plist
 

My board-id appears to be iMac17,1 in the config.plist

SMBIOS:

Find these lines and replace it's entry to "none"

 

"Mac-B809C3757DA9BB8D" or

"Mac-65CE76090165799A" or

"Mac-DB15BD556843C820"

 

Rebuild the kext using kextutility tool.

Reboot with nvda_drv=1

Then that's it!

I have seen successful installation of El Capitan on z170x g7 with skylake but I cannot manage to setup final my hackintosh after fresh installation of El Capitan.

 

My build:

Gigabyte Z170X Gaming G1, Socket 1151 Bios F6

GTX Titan X 12 gb

64gb Geil Dragon Ram (16gbx4)

i7-6700k 4.0 ghz Skylake

3TB Seagate Sata

 

Accomplishments:

Configured the bios to make El Capitan USB Installer bootable from scratch.

Able to create bootable usb using Clover

Patch kext but I don't know which ones are important and/or necessary

Able to boot from the HD with El Capitan with usb

Working Audio

Working USB, 3.0 not checked

Bluetooth works

 

 

Problems:

Display is showing but in lowest resolution (so slow)

Wifi not working

I have no proper DSDT, AML for my mobo.

Don't know which set of kexts would be appropriate and necessary.

 

Anyone, please help. Attachment of their dsdt and kexts for the same would be appreciated.

I'm just an average user of hackintosh. Please give me a guide, thanks.

 

 

Note: I have successfully installed El Capitan in my old build: Gigabyte EP35-DS3R, QuadCore 775 Intel 2.5ghz, 8gb ram, 80gb seagate, msi 9600gt with no problems and all are working.

still didn't went well.

currently unable to boot and messed up everything.

dunno what's the workaround for post installation of GTX Titan X to be functional.

I manage to install El Capitan in EP35-DS3R with ease and flawlessly with Nvidia 9600GT.

 

repeating now all the process from start.

 

Is GTX Titan X compatible? need help badly. thanks.

at the first start, boot with: nv_disable=1,  after installation of El Capitan and Nvidia WebDriver / Cuda driver then boot with: nvda_drv=1

has anyone have dsdt for gigabyte z170x gaming g1?

I'm having trouble how to make own dsdt. i really dunno how.

 

Had finally installed el capitan 10.11.3 but having difficutly with the ga gtx titan x to work.

-had nv_disable=1, then installed the latest nvdia driver.

-boot with nvda_drv=1 will result to black screen.

-edited the applegraphicscontrol and changed appropriate assignment to none.

-when booted, the nvdia control setting returns back to osx default graphic setting.

 

 

nv_disable=1, will have glitches at start and low reso.. Anyone please provide me guide.

thanks.

 

os: el capitan

mobo: gigabyte z170x gaming g1

ram: geil 64gb

vid: gigabyte gtx titan x

sata hd

 

will other (ga z170x g3, g7, g5) config.plist work for my setup/board? is this the same for dsdt?

what does macvidz flashing with their cards mean?

Ok, I've been trying to get an El Capiitan install on my system for months, I have tried several methods to get it done, but no joy.  I'm at the point of giving up entirely, almost.  I even spent about $2000 on i new Skylake based build, only to find out that it's not as easy to do as I was lead to believe.  I will post my system specs below I have El Cap kind of installed using VMWare, it works, but that's not what I want.  I want a fully functional dual boot setup, Win 10 for gaming and other stuff, and OS X for development, vid editing and such.  I used several version of USB creation programs, but none of them has worked to create a working USB installer, they get to a certain point in the installer's boot sequence, then go into a never-ending loop, forcing me to hit the reset button.  Not a good outcome...  Can i get a bit of guidance as to what I'm doing wrong?  Maybe what boot flags i need and installer advice?  I'm a newbie at this, but I am rather competent w/ computers. in general.  I can install any version of Linux or Windows, but OS X has so far eluded me.

 

My specs:

 

CPU: Core i7-6700K Skylake

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z170x-Gaming 7

RAM: 32 GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4 2666

Storage: 1 Samsung 850 EVO M.2 SSD 500 GB, 1 Samsung 850 EVO 2.5" SSD 500 GB and 1 WD BLACK HHD 3 TB

Graphics Card: EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980

CPU Cooler: Corsair H110i liquid cooler (if that's necessary)

Power Supply: Corsair RM850 850 WATT (if that's necessary)

 

My motherboard has 2 NICs, 1 Intel I219-V and Killer e2400 Gigabit.  I'm connected to the Killer, if that matters.

 

Any advice would help.

Thanks from a disabled computer nerd!
