  1. I currently have the same issue. Did you ever get past this?
  2. So I tried FIX_RTC and still ran into the " RTC: Single RAM Bank (128 b " error (the last word was cut off as seen from the screenshot). I tried it again and got the same error except the last few lines were different (see the screenshot). I also tried using the HDMI port instead of the DVI-D port got the " RTC: Single RAM Bank (128 bytes) " error but it got past it to " [ PCI Configuration Begin ] " hang. So I'm not sure what exactly causes these errors and why having the monitor plugged into either the DVI-D port or HDMI would make a difference. Thanks again for any and all help!!!
  3. Nope. Not using a DSDT.aml or SSDT.aml. I'm attaching a screenshot (below) of the Acpi page from the clover configurator of the config.plist from the EFI you sent (that is what I was using). Are there any changes I should make? Thanks again!!!!
  4. Just tried the EFI you sent me @mfc88 and it looks like I hit the " RTC: Only single RAM bank (128 bytes) " hang/error: Any ideas on what I should change to get past that? Thanks again!
  5. Thanks a ton! I will try this out! Do you have this same motherboard too? EDIT: Don't mind my question, I saw that you have an Asus x99 mobo

    X99 Sierra installation problem

    I have an MSI X99A Gaming Pro Carbon motherboard but I do have the AppleRTC box checked so unfortunately that won't help, I will try it unchecked as well too. I will try the USBInjectAll.kext and the X99-XHCI-Injector.kext and I can report back tonight. But yeah, I've been using a USB 2.0 port almost always:)

    X99 Sierra installation problem

    Update: After patching the IOPCIFamily.kext, it makes it to: " RTC: Only single RAM bank (128 b " before hanging for a second then rebooting. Any ideas what to do from here on out? Screenshot below.

    X99 Sierra installation problem

    Thank you so much @okrasit! Hopefully this is what I've been missing! I'm going to try it later this evening when I get home and I'll post the results:)

    Hi @okrasit, are you talking about @Brumbaer's patch as seen below?

    X99 Sierra installation problem

    I'm also stuck on [ PCI Configuration Begin ]. I have not found the solution yet unfortunately. I have tried all sorts of bootflags: -v, -x, dart=0, cpus=1, npci=0x2000, npci=0x3000, -xcpm, slide=0, kext-dev-mode=1, debug=0x100, nv_disable=1, rootless=0, debug=0x14e, PCIRootUID=0, PCIRootUID=1, maxmem=4096, maxmem=6144, usekernalcache=no, IGPEnabler=no, USBBusFix=Yes, and quite possibly a couple others that I am forgetting. From some random posts I read, it seems like it could either be a USB kext issues or possibly something to do with FakeSMC kexts (something with plugins being enabled for FakeSMC?). Not sure how to modify those or what to do. My x99 system is: X99A MSI Gaming Pro Carbon, i7 6950x, 980 Ti in case anyone is wondering
  12. Hey guys! Running into some problems with my x99 build and hoping someone can help:) I've been following a mix of x99 guides (found both here and tonymacx86) to no success thus far. The furthest I have gotten is a hang up on AMFILoad after [ PCI Configuration Begin ] as seen below Obviously the first error is that it hangs on AMFILoad. I haven't had much luck in finding out what I need to change/fix to get past this. The other error is "Unsynchronized TSC for CPU" (also seen in that screenshot). That one seems more likely to be an issue with the VoodooTSCSync kext but I'm not quite sure why as I have literally just used someone else's (successful) voodoo kext who modified it for the i7 6950x (which is the processor I have) using @Brumbaer's patch where you simply change the IOCPUNumber to 19 (10 cores, 20 threads, subtract 1 from 20 to get the 19) in the kext. I also have a successful Windows 10 boot on a different SSD so I extracted the DSDT.bin and SSDT.bin with RW Everything, converted them to DSDT.aml and SSDT.aml and placed them in the EFI>CLOVER>ACPI>patched folder. Currently, I'm also running it with 1 single 16 GB stick of RAM (and not the full 96 GB of RAM). Additionally, I have tried various usb sticks and usb ports with no additional success. Any and all help would be much appreciated on this issue as I'm pretty much totally stuck Let me know if there is any additional information I can provide or upload, etc.
  13. I'm also having issues with my x99 build and my build is similar however I have an MSI X99A Gaming Pro Carbon mobo and the i7 6950x CPU. I'm going to be making a post today on it to see if anyone has any ideas

    M.2 native wireless/bt card options?

    Hey! I have the same motherboard (Gigabyte Z170N Gaming 5) but I can't seem to get past the "Installing on Macintosh HD About 12 minutes remaining" screen. Did you follow any specific guides? Sorry I'm a bit of a hackintosh noob so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!
