#2290353 Gigabyte X58/X5570 - Nothing is happening when I install MacOS on my setup

Posted by Kucksy on 01 October 2016 - 09:36 AM

Hi from Troy - sorry for not getting back to you until now - I'm in Australia -  Legacy Mode can be selected when you boot from the installer - and - as for bootloader - I use CloverEFI version r3763 :) and I did the same thing as you regarding the FakeSMC.kext - created a 10.12 folder under the kexts folder in /EFI/Clover/kexts/10.12 (I also put VoodooHDA.kext in there for my sound card) Hoping this helps you out :) Cheers from Troy :)

#2290126 Gigabyte X58/X5570 - Nothing is happening when I install MacOS on my setup

Hi from Troy :) I have the GM of MacOS Sierra running on a Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD3R motherboard with a Xeon E5640 Processor, ASUS Strix GTX 960 Graphics Card and 16 GB of Kingston HyperX DDR3 1866 mhz ram - installed and working fine using the installer made using Pandoras Box. The only thing I did when creating the installer was insuring that "legacy installer mode" was enabled when I was creating the installer and it completed the install process fine for me (without the use of a DSDT.aml file). I am using the MacPro 5,1 system definition in SMBIOS

Well to quote someone a lot more famous than me, they once said - "Great artists steal" - to be honest the only thing this judgement does is make competition harder and therefore will limit the choice of us the end user / consumer. Of course we'll be the ones that end up paying for these court imposed "fines" through the higher price of new phones not the companies themselves. It always consumers that are the losers in things like this.

and if that doesn't all work for you - how about trying to disable one of the cpu's cores in the BIOS and booting with just the one core enabled and see if you get any further another thing to try - again in the BIOS - turn off HPET for the cpu and reboot and see if that works :)
