    Gigabyte Z170X - Gaming 7 - Success Hackintosh

    Got it working now. Had to use the Radeon framebuffer driver instead of Baladi. So important lessons for me were: - make sure to have a UEFI vbios on the graphics card (use the dual bios toggle so you can easily swap between UEFI and Legacy vbios when necessary, the Z170X uefi setup menu doesn't always work with the UEFI vbios) - disable the networking stack in the UEFI settings, as well as IOAPIC and CSM - enable XHC Hand Off - don't use fakeid and use the correct framebuffer Now only problem is that sleep doesn't work; the screen goes black but the computer doesn't go to sleep and just stops responding entirely.

    The problem right now is that none of the ethernet ports work (they don't show up in the control panel, and if I click the "add" button the control panel just crashes), and that I don't get proper video from the graphics card (it's stuck at 1920x1080, and there are artifacts). I have tried with both CSM enabled and disabled; it didn't make any difference. My graphics card device id is 0x1002 0x67B0 (same as the fake id, so I didn't think it could hurt). When I get home I'll try without FakeATI, but I don't think that'll fix my network problem I should also add that I used this card in my previous system (GA-EP45-DS4 with Yosemite) without any issues straight out of the box, with no specific changes to the config.plist. Edit: turns out my video card was re-enabling CSM because it didn't have a UEFI vBIOS. I reflashed it and got CSM properly disabled, and since then I managed to boot once with both graphics and network working perfectly. Unfortunately, after rebooting again it now keeps waiting for the root device. No idea what went wrong now. This thing is cursed, I tell you. Edit 2: Apparently enabling the networking stack in the UEFI setup causes that "waiting for root device" issue. Now it boots, but I don't get a display. The video card is however properly detected now because it mentions enabling the video acceleration subsystem in the console (right before the screen goes black) which it didn't do before.

    Looks like I forgot to actually attach the file... Let's try again. I should add; I started with your general settings and then tried to get it working from there. I added the Radeon 290X kext patches and injection (which did nothing), and tried updating the Atheros and E1000 kexts with the latest ones, but that's about as far as my changes went. CLOVER.zip

    Thanks for wanting to help out I've attached my clover folder. Some additional info; the adapters are detected as PCI devices in the system profile and it says a kext is loaded for them, so I'm sure the Atheros kext is loaded (it also appears in the kernel logging). It's as if just the networking subsystem doesn't see it.

    Finally got El Capitan to install on my machine, but I can't get any ethernet interface to show up using either connection. My setup is: - Gigabyte Z170X Gaming 7 - Intel i7 6700k - 32GB RAM - Radeon 290X (which isn't corrently detected either but I thought I'd fix the ethernet first) - Samsung 950Pro on NVMe for Windows - Sandisk 128GB SSD for OS X If during the setup I'd tell it to configure my wired network, the installer would just crash, and I would briefly see a kernel panic in com.insanelymac.AtherosE2200Ethernet. I told it to not setup any networking and that allowed the setup to go through, but then in the control panel I still can't see any interfaces, regardless of which one is plugged in. Any tips?
  6. I was just wondering if anyone has had any success installing Mac OS X 10.4.8 and the AppleTV frontrow (2.1 or later) on their AppleTV? And if the remote, and more importantly, the universal remote learning functionality still works? Reason I ask is I'm trying to figure out how to activate the universal remote feature in the receiver (for a Linux project I'm working on), but I can't get the USB logging kexts to work under the ATV OS which I require to see which magic packet is being sent to the receiver to activate it. But I'm having zero luck getting Front Row to start up under 10.4.8, so I was wondering if it was at all possible (and working with the universal remote thing).
