In Topic: Need some input on ASRock X99 WS - trying to boot to Sierra installer

13 June 2017 - 01:19 PM

@MaaseyRacer you'll be pleased to know that after much head scratching and thought, I am currently installing Sierra. It wasn't the GPU (although the 1050 I borrowed is installed now) but I reflashed the EFI (same version 3.30) and that seems to have done the trick.


EDIT: Almost there!


Whats working: GPU, USB3, Sleep (but it kicks the USB so it's disabled right  now), Ethernet (only one of them), Speedstep and CPU PM

What's not: Useful sleep (as mentioned above, it kicks USB and safe sleep USB causes a reboot), Audio (shown in sys prefs but doesn't seem to output), USB2


CPU PM: https://github.com/P.../Beta/README.md


I probably won't use sleep, but it would be nice to get it working. Same with USB2. I might ditch internal audio and use a Griffin iMic I have from yesteryear.

I love the Quadros, but I was also looking at one of the 1060's. I managed to get a little further, I can now see GUI... but I get a hang on either the grey screen (presumably just before the Installer actually appears) or on the screen with the Apple and the progress bar. The things that made the difference are all to do with the GPU, so I am pretty sure it's the issue. I might just bite the bullet and buy a 1060 or maybe even a 1050 to drop in and see if I get any further.


Oh, and just realised my clover folder didn't actually attach to my first post.. :rolleyes: :blush:  Oh well, suppose it doesn't matter too much now... I'll attach later when I've tweaked again.


Also, I read in this thread that the E5 v3's don't need the NullCPU and do quite well, so feeling hopeful :)
