Legacy Lovers - Z68X-UD5-B3 El Capitan Journey

12 January 2016 - 09:36 AM

Hi guys,


long time member here - always been repping some of the more hard to accomplish projects. I achieved a flawless Yosemite build with my old Z68 motherboard, using legacy Award Bios, and tomorrow I'm taking the journey to El Capitan when I get my spare Solid State.



If anyone else has this board still, or the Z68 in general, and wants to come along for the ride, be sure to stick your head in this thread and I'll do my best to answer any questions.



I've done the initial prep and managed to boot into a USB and run a test El Capitan install (Faulty spare hard disk though so couldn't boot into the OS after).

The only thing I had to change since my El Capitan build thus far, was disabling CPU EIST in the bios. It's  not so straightfoward to find, but its in advanced CPU settings a few pages in.


Cheers  :yes:

Safari keeps causing freezes, Can't update nVidia drivers

27 May 2015 - 02:51 AM

hi guys,

build is a Sandy Bridge setup with a Geforce 560ti, running 10.10.3 and clover with no real problems up until lately.
Now, Safari is causing my computer to lock up intermittently, sometimes it will log out to login screen, other times it will hang all together.
Furthermore, nVidia advise me that my old drivers aren't compatible and have rolled back to OS X Web Drivers. Updating the drivers causes my build to KP after reboot.
Unsure how to approach this and any advice is greatly appreciated.
Thanks a lot

10.10.2 - Latest Nvidia Web Drivers KP

09 March 2015 - 10:41 PM

Hi guys,


Running clover for 10.10.2. Install was perfect, upgraded to 10.2 without any issue but Apple defaulted to its drivers because of compatibility, which was fine. However, when nVidia said new drivers were available I updated and now I keep getting KP's. 


How can I remove these drivers from Terminal without knowing exactly what it installed? Or should I try to boot with disabling them and if so, what flags should I boot with.


Very upset as I had no idea a web driver update could bring down a stable install.
