  1. macOS Sierra 10.12.4 version of this guide is now available: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/322353-asus-p8h61-m-lx-r20-macos-sierra-10124-100-working/?p=2395146
  2. Hi fellow mainboard users, I'd like to share my success story of installing macOS Sierra (10.12.4) on this incredibly cheap but powerful motherboard. First, install El Capitan on a blank disk. I wrote an extremely detailed guide (applicable to noobs as well) for installing El Capitan on Hackintosh, check it out! http://eladnava.com/install-os-x-10-11-el-capitan-on-hackintosh-vanilla/ Then, update to macOS Sierra by following this guide: Finally, update to Sierra 10.12.4 via the App Store updates. Make sure to re-run audio_cloverALC-120.command after updating to 10.12.4, otherwise, you'll get randomly-occurring kernel panics. Audio Getting the on-board ALC 887 (0x10ec0887) to work is tricky, but I was able to do it by trying lots of kexts and scripts, until I found a combination of 2 that worked: 1. HDAEnabler1.kext - by toleda (https://github.com/toleda/audio_kext_enabler) 2. audio_cloverALC-120.command - by toleda (https://github.com/toleda/audio_CloverALC) The HDAEnabler1.kext can be copied safely to EFI/Clover/kexts/10.12/. The audio_cloverALC-120.command needs to be run (after mounting the EFI partition via diskutil) and the correct Audio_ID for our ALC 887 is 1. Note that you will need to go into the System Preferences -> Sound -> Output and select the hardware device for this to work! Both files are attached. Networking The on-board RTL 8169 ethernet controller works great after installing the attached Ethernet-RTGNICv2.0.6For10.7.mpkg. Graphics Depends on your card. In my case, the GTX 650 worked out of the box (without graphics injection or what-not) with QE/CI support. AsusP8H61-M-LX-R2.0-Sierra.zip
  3. Sorry, USB worked out of the box for me -- check this out, though: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/306777-guide-usb-fix-el-capitan-1011/
  4. Hi, This mobo doesn't have USB 3 (at least mine doesn't). USB 2 ports in the back work out of the box. I think the front ones do not work, but I can do without them.
  5. You're right, will do next time
  6. Updated the guide for El Capitan 10.11.1!
  7. Guide has been updated for Mavericks 10.9.5.
  8. How I got my ALC888 working in 10.9 Without DSDT

    Just dropping in to confirm that this still works on Mavericks 10.9.
  9. Hi, Try booting with -v flag to see where it fails.
  10. Haven't tried Probably shouldn't cause any issues except the usual AppleACPIPlatform kernel panic
  11. Do you have the exact same motherboard (Lx R2.0)?

  13. How I got my ALC888 working in 10.9 Without DSDT

    I tried VoodooHDA, it had terrible quality if I remember correctly and low sound volume for my card.
  14. How I got my ALC888 working in 10.9 Without DSDT

    Did you check all ports? Can you change system volume from taskbar / keyboard keys?
