GA-X79-UP4

06 March 2014 - 10:58 PM

as the topic says, i have this board. recently upgraded my system and would like to install OS X 10.9. i really prefer not to use any distros (most guides i found required usage of ##### or distros) as i have acquired the retail disc for this version and want minimal hacks to get this system running. the specs are below with screen shots...

 

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4

Bios             : F4 (came preinstalled with this board)

CPU             : Intel Core i7-4820k @ 3.70GHz

Memory       : 16GB (4x4gb) DDR3 1333 (Plan to upgrade to 32GB soon)

Main HDD    : Seagate 1TB Hybrid Drive (ST1000DX001-1CM1) (connected to Intel port 0) (Eventually SSD)

Graphics     : Nvidia Quadro FX 3500 (will be upgraded soon to newer cards for SLI)

 

I plan to split the 1TB drive in half so i can have Win7 x64 and OSX 10.9 in a dual boot setup. I have not setup any OC profiles (left it with default optimized settings). if there are any bios settings i must change, boot flags and boot disc i need to get this running please advise. thank you for your time.
