    Hello to all,
     
    This is a post to publicly thank IronManJFF for his help restoring my QUO back to life.
    It's a pity with the Forum DB crashed. All the public posts, IM and even my registration were lost (I had to subscribe again and pass the test again)
     
     
    After installing Crusher. XMASS modified BIOS my QUO mother board was bricked, and Ironman patienly help me during three days to have the system back to work.
    I'm still unable to run the 32 GB of RAM, as the with the 4x 8GB Dimm the board is not booting again.
    But al least with 16GB I still can use the computer for not heavy work.
     
    Sincère merci beaucoup!!

    UberNoob is now using the X-Mass Oz release, has his GTX 680 flashed with GOP support and is downloading 10.11.5. 
     
    Edit:
    The AOS board needs NVRAM protection disabled because Oz is using a AptioFix1 style memory map fix (thank-you crusher. for telling me this).
     
    You can disable NVRAM SIP in a few different ways:
     
    EFI Shell:

    setvar csr-active-config -GUID 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 -nv ="50000000"Oz Defaults Plist:
        <key>Defaults:7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82</key>     <dict>         <key>csr-active-config</key>         <string>UAAAAA==</data>     </dict>NVRAM (older OS X):
    sudo nvram 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82:csr-active-config=%P%00%00%00CSRUtil (from Recovery):
    csrutil enable --without nvram

    Once booted into OS X, go to Preferences/Starup Disk and select your OS X partition.

    OK, I see you have windows so here is what you need to do:
     
    1. Create bootable FAT32 DOS USB stick with http://rufus.akeo.ie/
    2. Copy all files from attached zip on the stick
    3. Make sure in BIOS Legacy boot is enabled!
    4. Boot from USB stick(legacy not UEFI).
     
    Once on DOS prompt type:
     
    eeupdate /nic=1 /d lan.eep
     
    This will write new LAN eeprom without changing existing MAC address, if you want to be pir8:
     
    eeupdate /nic=1 /d lan.eep /MAC=XXXXXXXXXXXX
     
    Where XXXXXXXXXXXX will be your new MAC address at your choice
     
    After this type celo then enter
     
    If it pass all tests then you are good to go on OS X for test.
     
    Have fun!

    I test that one with:
    - compact card reader.
    _ HD 3,5 external.
    - External dock
    - Video Can
     
    I don't use Thunderbolt, I don't have any device, if I can use oupout for something.
     
    I read somewhere in that post, this is not plug and play and must be connect at start up...
    More details after April 7

    There is a reason why is called AOS(Any OS) and not ANB(Any N00B)!
     
    You said that you did read all 60 pages of this topic, if you did it like I do with sport pages on news papers, then is zero in zero out.
    It is stated at least in five places (for you black screen bug) to set on BIOS/BIOS Features/Display Boot Option ROM Control to Legacy Only
     
    I really hope a BIOS update will be released with this set by default so  I wont have to repeat myself over and over.

    I strongly suggest to use this board. Excellent workmanship and great support by the players in this forum, even with some really kinky questions. Quo has been very accomodating and helpful.

    IMHO not many will look into this, SSD's are still not cheap and one with SED is extra, I for one, I have no "plans" in getting one or such SATA controller for test, but I have some advice for you:
     
    1. For SED drive:
    The UEFI driver that cover most of this is "OpalSecurity" GUID: 59AF16B0-661D-4865-A381-38DE68385D8D
    You can get this module from various UEFI BIOS Vendors, extract it and insert it in you favorite BIOS for test then give it a try.
    You can also look at leaked AMI source if you want to know how this works...
     
    2. For SATA card:
    Just make sure you get one with UEFI BIOS.
     
    3. For BIOS ATA Password stuff, I don't know yet what is required, investigating...
     
    Some info I found here
     
    Good luck!

    @mixelplick, 99.9% your issue was caused by bad overclock and was discussed here before.
    The solution is to force backup BIOS to kick in(read/search this topic) then flash the BIOS you like again(assuming you didn't killed your ram sticks and/or something else...).
    You need to know few things:
     
    10.6.3 Retail DVD is limited on hardware install and have checks on hardware and system model,  what is unknown wont work, ...what you did wrong when you edited your system model and stuff, I suggest you to reflash your BIOS.
     
    For Snow Leopard, as was said here, you will need SandyBridge CPU, HD3000 will work, not sure if it can drive that cinema display...
     - You can use Sandy CPU with discrete gfx card,, just make sure is supported by 10.6.8 at least!
     - You can use your current CPU and discrete GFX but you will not have power management working since no support .

    Your best bet might be to revert to the original nvram settings. Just set the same variables you used but with MacPro3,1 values. See if that gets it booting again. Then could try MacMini5,3. These came with Lion but some users were able to downgrade them to Snow as they still used Sandybridge CPUs. These had Thunderbolt ports.
