  1. Installing Sierra on the EVGA Classified SR2 First I installed Sierra onto a Disk using my MacBook Air, bit of a cheat but the setup from there was pretty straightforward. I set up Clover using the following settings: I then set up the EFI portion like so using d00ds DSDT.aml which I’m attaching I used the latest FakeSMC and NullCPUPowerManagement kexts: You need to delete (move) the AppleTyMCEDriver.kext if you don't have ECC RAM and the boot caches before rebooting. sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/AppleTyMCEDriver.kext/ ~/Desktop/ rm -R /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches That moves AppleTyMCEDriver.kext to your Desktop for use later if you get ECC RAM This gets most things up and running that I can see so far. SNAGLIST: Usual iCloud and messages error, SMBIOS and en0 network should fix them. I’ve splurged on some ECC RAM so will see if that fixes the AppleTyMCEDriver.kext problem. Struggling with getting a product name that works for SMBIOS but still experimenting, This causes a KP when used on all the ones I’ve tried so far and is also linked to the AppleTyMCEDriver.kext due to the MacPro5,1 requiring ECC.

  3. Did anyone have any luck with Sierra on the SR-2?
  4. Thanks for the files to fix my bluetooth was driving me round the bend :-)
  5. I've tried a couple of times to get my install working with the new kernel, so far I've had no luck. I have some free time today though, so will try a few options that I've yet to try.
  6. I've tried the 9.6.3 kernel from the Nehalem Mac Pro which was linked in another thread. Here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...p;#entry1132913 It's rebooting fairly early on into the boot process. So far I've tried with the boot flag busratio=20 and without. I also tried it using no overclock which didn't help either. Things to try: Hyperthreading off and single core enabled with busratio included/excluded.
  7. Hi Mike, I'm running the same as you - 920 i7 OC'd to 3.8GHz and I've tried the new kernel with no success. How where you able to make the switch from the Voodoo kernel successfully. Any pointers will be gratefully received.
  8. I'm up and running using these instructions and have the same Motherboard as you. The LAN was the only part that didn't work, but was fixed fairly easily. So it's definitely possible for you. I had problems when using multiple drives which I removed, once installed I put them back in and it all works fine.
  9. Mine was the same all good until I ran the 10.5.6 update and then it stopped booting. I removed all the Hard Drives and DVD Drives, then plugged the SATA drive with OSX into port 1 and left the rest off, booted fine then. After this I put all the other drives back in and made sure the Drive UUID in the com.apple.Boot.plist is correct and it's all good from then.
  10. Has anyone got the new Mac Pro or access to it so we can try the new kernel on our i7's?
  11. Works for me, I'm now using Chameleon after following the guide for Asus 6T and munkys boot. dp35dp wrote a script that does all the work for you, nice boot screen :-)
  12. We think it should work we are just not sure where we should put the voodoo kernel for sure.
  13. Will the script also take into account that munkys instructions in this thread may require the mach_kernel.voodoo in the EFI directory, how will this script work with that. I have seen a couple of people post that when they copy mach_kernel.voodoo into Extras it won't boot and nobody has posted a definitive answer on where exactly it must be put for the chameleon boot to work using the voodoo kernel. The voodoo option is in phase 4 of munky's instructions:

    Upgrade Your Boot Volume to Chameleon 2.0-RC1

    The link for munky's script is broken again, will you be making a new one and why do they keep getting removed.
  15. Has anyone successfully switched over to the new Chameleon 2.0RC1 and if you have can you tell us which instructions or method you have used. Many thanks :-)
