    El Capitan on GA-Z170X-Gaming 5

    I have installed el Capitan on the config below. after a few attempts, i ended up with a working system: - 4 Screens up in span mode - Audio and HDMI audio working - USB2 and 3 working - Bluetooth working (Somewhat) - Sata M.2 working - Blu-ray DVD working I still have a few issues: 1 - iTunes does not play video. I can play youtube video, I can hear music on iTunes but it seems that some security features prevent it to play video 2 - I have purchased a bluetooth dongle. I connected an apple keyboard and trackpad but they do not work very well. The trackpad while connected move from very well to randomly to none. Very erratic I got it fixed by adding 2 kexts: BrcmPatchRAM2.kext and BrcmFirmwareData.kext 3 - When I shutdown the computer, it shuts down but then reboot automatically. I got that fixed with FixShutdown option on in ACPI 4 - I installed the nVidia Web Driver but each time i Reboot it uses the default OS X Default Graphic driver. When I change to Nvidia Web driver, I do not see any difference in the resolution/quality of the image. May be the OS X Default is set to Nvidia web driver ? Any help on the above would be highly appreciated, Also is there any help on the web or books to understand the EFI architecture, Kext and anything related to adapting hardware to OS X ?
