10.11.0 Patched Kernel For Intel Z87 Haswell Motherboards w/ Reboot Loop

About This File

This is a patched version of an official vanilla kernel from El Capitan 10.11.0, allowing Z87 Haswell motherboards capable of booting without reboot loops or kernel panics.


The following perl scripts have been applied to the vanilla kernel for 10.11.0:


perl -pi -e 's|\xe2\x00\x00\x00\x02\x00\x00\x00|\x00\x00\x00\x00\x02\x00\x00\x00|g' kernel


perl -pi -e 's|\xe2\x00\x00\x00\x4c\x00\x00\x00|\x00\x00\x00\x00\x4c\x00\x00\x00|g' kernel


perl -pi -e 's|\xe2\x00\x00\x00\x90\x01\x00\x00|\x00\x00\x00\x00\x90\x01\x00\x00|g' kernel

I take no credit for the creation of the perl scripts used.


Patches #1, #2, and #3 have been documented on this blog by the original owner here. Shout outs to Pike R. Alpha whose code the patches are based on, he lives here.

Tested on EVGA Z87 FTW


Please let me know if it works well for you so I can confirm the amount of success users are having. Thanks
