    Boot into OS X 10.11.3 (El Capitan) without GUI.

    Hello mk2soldier, just had the same need as you and found this post. So far you are the only one that has documented the process with el cap. Have you been able to accomplish what you wanted with a GUI-less OS X?

    [Project] Toos his first G5 mod.

    Not sure if you had enough beer to complete this project, lol ! JK, I think this is one of the best looking G5 mods I have ever seen and it has given me inspiration to abandon my old G5 mod and create a modern version with your addition of carbon fiber. Thank you very much!
  3. Hello, I am on an Asrock Z77 and an i5-2500k Sandy Bridge. Does this work with my rig as well?

    New OS X compatible motherboard -> QUO

    Hey could you go in to what you had to do to make it work. I have a GTX 980 and I have yet to take the plunge to re-hackintosh my latest updated build. I have already flashed my bios with a pre-generated bios for my MB, but when it boots past post it goes straight to shell and I am not sure what to do from their. When I try using a clover based USB installer, it recognized the boot loader, but still won't boot to an existing hack build or my installer. Any help would be appreciated.

    Asus 1201N Installation and support

    Hello it has been a while since anyone has posted here and I wanted to ask if anyone has tried to install 10.10.3 from scratch. I am attempting to do it following TimeWalker's guide but run into issues just booting to the installer. After trying multiple times to boot, sometimes it will get to the language selection screen, but will grey screen as soon as I click down on the trackpad. Does anyone have any advice for me?

    Try another USB flash drive. Make sure its a USB 2.0 drive.

    Hello, I just want to chime in again and give you an update as well as a big virtual hug! At first I was getting all these random errors, but then I realized that I shouldn't be using a USB 3.0 card as they are known to be trouble with older systems (and even newer ones with built in USB 3.0) After using a USB 2.0 I had laying around, I got the install to work perfectly. The only problem I ran into was the 1201n package you made didn't work the first time so after a reboot, I ran it again and replaced the DSDT-4 file. Now I have 100% working 1201n with all my usb's working, wifi, lan, sound, keyboard buttons work. I am mighty impressed. THANK YOU TIMEWALKER75A !!! PS I just tried logging in to FaceTime, iCloud Drive, and Messages and everything is working as expected. I'm on Yosemite Beta 2.

    Thank you for posting a reply after you found the solution, lots of people don't do that. I on the other hand took the solution of rebranding my dw1510 to an airport card.

    I have tried 10.8 10.9 and 10.10 and for some reason I get the same errors and bugs each time. I also used the provided boot file and SSDT-4.aml to no avail. I also cleared the CMOS as suggested, but nothing has resolved my problems. In fact, now I am experiencing even more problems: 1) USB is not fully functional (none of the ports work unless something is plugged in to it before booting up, even then after unplugging a device, the port wont recognize any more devices, works under my other 10.9 config) 2) The keyboard is not being recognized (strange considering it works while in the BIOS, works under my other 10.9 config) 3) Wifi not detected (turns out I have a dell DW1510 like the other guys, but I just followed a rebranding guide and still can't get it to recognize, works under my other 10.9 config) Any help would be greatly appreciated. EDIT: I just woke it from sleep with the keyboard and it works, but not after a restart? Also do you have a donation button?

    That's not a very good attitude to have when requesting for help. Please be kind as you are coming off as you are entitled to something. You did not specify what KP you are getting. A picture would help.

    I tried it, but there a story. After I mounted the partition, I did, cd /Volumes/EFI and sudo chflags nohidden boot, but got an error stating there is no file named boot. That's weird I thought. So I reinstalled Clover as per your directions and I still did not get a boot file made. So I just put it in the root of EFI anyway, but it did not help. I still get the boot0ss error and when I try using bootaf, I get an error as well. I have to manually boot using a USB. There was one time when I booted that one of the USB ports worked, which happened to be the one where the USB stick I used for booting was plugged in to, non of the others worked. I hate to be that guy with all the problems and no solutions, but I wonder why nothing is working for me? EDIT: Now, I just noticed that I also have a EFI folder on the root of my install drive, which is strange. When I replaced the boot file there, I get the same error.

    I decided to install Mountain Lion as your experience shows that it is the fastest of the bunch. The thing is I still have the error from when I did Yosemite. None of my USB ports recognize things plugged in to it. It did work with the russian Mavericks install.
