  1. Introduction This is a step-by-step guide for installing macOS Sierra 10.12.x on ASRock H170M-ITX/ac utilizing the onboard Intel HD530 GPU. Sorry for not elaborating like you’re reading a novel of some sort, but I think this is for your own benefit. Here are the details of my personal build: - ASRock H170M-ITX/ac (BIOS v7.00) - Core i3-6100 @ 3.7GHz - 16GB RAM @ 2133MHz - Onboard HD530 via HDMI - Mini PCIe BCM94352HMB Wifi+BT My experience with this system after 4 - 5 months of daily development usage (Xcode, Web etc.) is this: It's most definitely a very stable system if you don't mind the well known Hackintosh plague, which is the absence of Sleep functionality. Highly recommended. Prerequisites - Maccie, a working Macintosh or Hackintosh computer, or even a macOS VM on Windows. - Hackie, your to-be Hackintosh computer. - Installie, a USB disk with capacity of 16GB or more. Create the Install Disk A) Download Install macOS Sierra.app from the AppStore on Maccie. Insert a USB disk on Maccie and open Disk Utility. Select your USB disk, select Erase, add Installie as its name and press Erase. C) Run the following command from Terminal: sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Installie --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app --nointeraction D) Once more, rename your USB disk to Installie and execute Clover_v2.4k_r4049.pkg. Select Installie USB disk as target, then proceed to the customization step. E) Select nothing but Install for UEFI booting only, Install Clover in the ESP, and OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 from Drivers64UEFI menu. F) Installie's EFI partition is now mounted. Overwrite EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with the config.plist file attached to this post. G) Copy all attached kexts to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other, copy SSDT-2.aml to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched. OS X Installation H) Your Installie USB disk is now ready, plug it in on Hackie. I) Press Del key to enter Hackie’s BIOS. On the Exit menu, execute Load UEFI Defaults, then enable XHCI Handoff. J) On Boot menu, set your first boot device to UEFI: BrandName XYZ, Partition 1. Save everything and exit. K) On Clover menu, select the macOS Installer entry, and after a couple of minutes you should be in the macOS Sierra installer. L) Open Disk Utility, and format Hackie's internal HDD or SDD just like on step B, but this time name it Macintosh HD. M) Continue with the installation on Macintosh HD until Hackie is restarted. Then, the second part of the installation will continue. N) On the last restart, this time boot from your newly created Macintosh HD. Finalize O) With some luck you should be now customizing your Hackie's first run. P) Repeat steps D, E, F, G but this time make sure you apply everything on Macintosh HD. Q) Remove Installie from USB port, and restart Hackie. R) The end. Extra Points S) If you own a SSD, paste the following on Terminal in order to enable TRIM support: sudo trimforce enable T) Replace VBoxHfs-64.efi with HFSPlus-64.efi in drivers64UEFI. It's proprietary, but it's faster. Notes - You should replace the default Intel Wifi+BT Mini PCIe card with the BCM94352HMB or something equally compatible. - Sleep does not work yet (see post #2 for output). - Keep in mind that this is a WIP, any input from you will be much appreciated. - Make sure to mention the lettering of the step in question and the description of your problem using as much detail as possible.

  2. Mojave (and maybe High Sierra 10.13.6) on Asrock H370M-ITX/ac and getting RX560 or RX580 to work with Intel graphics for full hardware acceleration Components used: Core i7 8700, UHD 630 Gigabyte Radeon RX560 Wifi/BT BCM943602BAED (DW1830) M.2 Sapphire Nitro RX 580 Samsung PM961 NVMe SSD *This guide requires you to know the basics, meaning how to create a macOS install drive, installing and using Clover. There are great beginners guides out there! As always you need at least FakeSMC to boot, every other kext I’ve used is mentioned in the guide. For Mojave beta you need to be enlisted with your Apple-ID in Apple’s beta programme. What is described here may work for High Sierra 10.13.6, but I doubt it to be reliable. Even in early beta status (PB3) Mojave runs much more stable and smoother than High Sierra ever did for me.* *UPDATE Mojave final* For the final release of Mojave you can use my attached Clover folder as a reference. If you don't have a Radeon RX 580 installed or you prefer WhatEverGreen just use the DSDT_no_graphics.aml and rename it to DSDT.aml. You need to have updated to BIOS V3.00 to use it. *UPDATE* I've updated to BIOS Revision 3.00 which seems to work fine in contrast to 1.50. Already compiled a new DSDT and uploaded it alongside a new config.plist. You can use both if you like. If you don't use a RX 580 you need to edit the PEG0-PEGP section in the DSDT to adjust it to your graphics hardware. With this DSDT and config in place you'll only need FakeSMC, IntelMausiEthernet, USBinjectall plus XHCI-300-Injector, Lilu plus AppleALC for Sound. You can add Shiki for iTunes DRM playback if you like, I've uploaded the latest version as well. Avoid Whatevergreen at this time. UEFI-BIOS settings: The board comes with BIOS version 1.20, there is an update 1.50 on the Asrock website. Usually it is good to stay updated but in this case I’ll recommend to stay on 1.20, because the 1.50 version seems to be unstable and I had restarts upon wake and things like that I couldn’t get fixed even with dsdt patches. So I just downgraded to 1.20 which runs fine. Settings needed: Just the usual. Disable fast boot and security boot (everything Windows-related), disable vt-d and enable XHCI hand-off. Activate multi monitor support and set VRAM to 64MB to activate the Intel IGPU. From what I’ve read most people recommend 128MB but I find the 64MB setting to be more reliable, getting artifacts with settings below or above 64MB. 128MB may be needed for 4k support, though. *Update* BIOS V 3.00 with Mojave final release works fine with 128MB. As for nVidia users: You may have to disable the Intel graphics. I’m using an AMD card and that is the brand to go these days since Apple decided to work with AMD Clover and power management: I recommend upgrading to 4586. It seems that Aptiomemoryfix is now working with H370 chipsets. I stayed on OsxAptiomemoryfix2 together with Emuvariable and it works. Feel free to experiment. *Update* Now using OsxAptioV3. For power management with your CoffeeLake cpu you can just tick plugin type within Clover or compile a ssdt with Pikeralphas script. Mojave reports my cpu correctly as Core i7 since PB3, before that it is just “Unknown” but that is just cosmetic. Graphics: *UPDATE* Whatevergreen 1.2.3 now supports Displayport on Nitro RX580. Still recommend DSDT or SSDT port activation instead as it runs more reliable and faster than WhatEverGreen. *UPDATE* I updated to PB4/DP5 and switched to a Sapphire Nitro RX 580. You don't need to spoof Kabylake anymore, SMBIOS 18,x now works and can use my attached DSDT_RX580 for your convenience! You'll need it for displayport to work as primary display or else you get black screen on boot and can use only HDMI. Problems are the same as written below in the graphics section. If you need iTunes you absolutely need to keep a copy of the latest Shiki that is available, because it is discontinued. The newest WhatEverGreen-Fix (1.2.0/1.2.1) does not work! If you want to use Final Cut and don't need iTunes just stay away from Shiki or Whatevergreen. This is the worst part. Getting the Radeon to run correctly alongside the Intel graphics took me weeks to figure out. While RX570 and 580 run out of the box in most cases, the RX560 models often do not or at least not correctly. Apple even banned them from eGPU use. For my approach you cannot use “Whatevergreen.kext”, it simply didn’t work for me the way I needed it. Instead I added some fixes to my DSDT to set the correct number of ports used (DP, HDMI, DVI) and tell macOS to use the correct frambuffer. For those who are not into dsdt editing I added my DSDT, look at the “PEGP” section how it is done. This works for the RX560 using the “Acre” framebuffer, you can replace it with “Radeon”, that works too. Other cards need a different framebuffer and a different number of ports. You can do it! BTW: Do not buy this Gigabytecard!!! It has some weird VBIOS on it, which caused me nightmares before I got the card to work! Buy a Sapphire card instead, they are used by Apple too. To get full hardware acceleration for encoding videos you have to have the Intel graphics enabled alongside your AMD card. Problem is, you cannot have it running simply as a second graphics card but you’ll need to “hide” it, means telling macOS that it doesn’t have any display connectors. Otherwise you’ll have screen artifacts or in the worst case just constant crashes. This can be done by adding a certain ig-platform-id in Clover. If you use 59120003 the Intel graphics will not show up in system profiler but it is there. You can check it with iStats or HWMonitor or look if the Kaby Lake graphics kexts are loaded. This ID makes the CoffeeLake UHD 630 to be recognized as a Kaby Lake gpu that has no display ports, is just used as a helper card. You’ll need it as a helper card for video encoding. That is what Intel graphics are used for in Macs, to support video encoding on the hardware side. You can check if hardware encoding is supposedly enabled by using MacX Video Converter Pro and VDADecoderChecker. If both say “yes” and “fully supported” this is a good start. But despite the widespread belief this doesn’t mean everything is set correctly! You now have to find out, how to get both cards working together. This is the moment where you have to choose between work and fun: Are you using FinalCut Pro for video editing or are you planning to use iTunes for entertainment? Up until this day (Mojave PB3 PB4/DP5, High Sierra 10.13.6) you cannot have both working correctly! I’ll show you how it is done both ways. The best settings for Final Cut: Use the DSDT I’ve added with the respective AMD settings for the RX560 or modify them for your graphics card. Use SMBIOS for iMac17,1 (14,2 does work but picture over DP port is ugly, iMac 18,1/2/3 do not work *Since Mojave PB4 they do work at least for RX580*) in Clover. Have AppleIntelKBLGraphicsFramebufferInjector_3e9x.kextin your Clover/kexts/Other folder. Until Mojave PB2 (may work on High Sierra 10.13.6): Fake-ID 3E928086 plus ig-platform-id 59120003 These are the correct setting when installing Mojave (usually you will start with PB1 as the full installer). For Mojave PB3 and higher: Fake-ID 59128086 plus ig-platform-id 59120003 After upgrading to PB3 you will get a black screen with 3E92 fake id because PB3 introduces Coffee Lake kexts and macOS will use these kexts instead but that doesn’t work with our ig-platform-id. So you can download the update to PB3 but before installing it you’ll need to change the fake-id to a usual Kaby Lake id. While this didn’t work in High Sierra and the first two Mojave betas (meaning you didn’t get full hardware encoding) it is now magically working with PB3. It is safe to remove AppleIntelKBLGraphicsFramebufferInjector_3e9x.kext after upgrading to PB3. For Mojave PB4 and higher (including final release): Only add ig-platform-id 3E920003 and inject Intel = Yes in Clover, no need for spoofing a fake id anymore. Now iMac18,3 works best with AMD. Intel only users should use iMac18,1 instead. The best setting for iTunes and why it is the worst for Final Cut: Just do the same thing as for FinalCut, put Shiki.kext into your Clover/kexts/other folder and add -shikigva boot argument. You can use -shikigva=1 or 2 or 12 it will work either way. Now you can watch movies with iTunes, yay! But it has some sideeffects. You cannot use this setting when seriously editing with Final Cut. While this works by tricking macOS to use the IntelGraphics to play protected video content, it doesn’t seem to be the way real Macs are doing this. As soon as you open FinalCut you will notice (check this with iStats or HWMonitor) that the Intel graphics is not or only barely utilized under certain circumstances depending on your material. Instead cpu usage skyrockets, indicating that slow software rendering is used instead of hardware encoding through Intel graphics. To make it worse the Radeon still “thinks” there is an Intel graphics helping so it does not run at highest potential. Wifi and Bluetooth *UPDATE* With Mojave PB4/DP5 Bluetooth stopped working with Rehabman's kext, my MagicMouse simply isn't connecting anymore. I decided to finally remove the card because handoff isn't working anyway these days with M.2 or NGFF bluetooth on High Sierra or Mojave (tried several ones "the internet" claims they would work oob but they do not ;)). That is what I wanted Bluetooth for. If you need Wifi I recommend you go with a cheap Wifi-only card, you don't need to pay 30 or 40 $ for dual cards that won't work the way they were intended to work. If you are on a micro ATX board and can have a graphics card plus PCIe Wifi/BT-card that actually connects to a physical USB port on you're board then you may be lucky enough to have handoff working as expected. I'm having a wifi repeater laying around with an ethernet port in case I may need wifi someday on my hack. I swapped the Intel Wifi card that was coming with the mainboard plugged into the onboard M.2 port with a compatible Dell card. The DW1830 or BCM943602BAED. The wifi part runs half way out of the box, but if you want the card to appear as Apple AirportExtreme and set the country code according to your country you need to put FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext into Clover/kexts/other and add some Clover kext-to-patches by PMHeart.

You’ll need BrcmPatchRAM2.kext and BrcmFirmwareData.kext OR BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext. The Data.kext can be injected through Clover, just throw it into the kexts/other folder, the Repo.kext has to be installed in /Library/Extensions on your mac drive, it won’t work with Clover. I had issues with the Data.kext, Bluetooth was gone on every second or third reboot. The Repo.kext is more reliable, haven’t had any issues yet. I really don’t like the kexts to be installed in my system but I guess I have to live with it for the time being. Oh, handoff and continuity don’t work, doesn’t matter that system profiler shows them as enabled. At least it works in one way: the mac can handoff Safari pages to my iPhone, but not the other way around. Documents opened on my phone show up in the dock, but they are not loaded. This issue is around since at least High Sierra and from what I’ve read Rehabman is not going to fix this, because he founds this features not worth it. I have to disagree, these are very convenient and valuable features if you work with desktop, laptop and tablet in different situations, I miss this capability very much! Audio Audio works with Lilu.kext plus AppleALC.kext and you need to inject Layout ID=1 in Clover if you don't use a patched DSDT. For Mojave use the boot setting -lilubetaall to force the kexts to load. If you like to have DP or HDMI audio add a HDAU device to your dsdt (see mine for reference). There's an audio patch already added in my DSDT, so you don't need to use the Clover patch. Credits: Credits go to this great community! I hope I mentioned everyone in this guide whose insights made this hack possible. If I have forgotten someone please let me know! CLOVER_Mojave_Final.zip

    How to install Yosemite?

    hi there... I have asrock g41m-vs3 r2.0 mobo and now am running niresh's mavericks and it runs well.... but how to install Yosemite on my pc?
  7. It's been a while since I really messed with OS X, but I recently setup a pretty decent Intel machine, and was interested in giving it a try. I use an ASRock Fatal1ty H97 Killer motherboard with an Intel i5-4670K CPU, and a MSI R7850 Power Edition 2GD5/OC GPU. Is it possible to natively-run OS X with such hardware? I imagine the CPU and GPU are fine, but the motherboard has be concerned. I haven't done any searching myself, so please forgive me if there's some thread somewhere with instructions for that particular motherboard or something (although if I understand right, that motherboard is relatively new to the market).
  8. Hi, have you got any idea of how can I make the sleep working on this configuration? This is the only things is not working (apart the CUDA drivers, matlab do not recognize my GTX650 video card gpu). I found that this can be done by patching the bios using pmpatch, but i really don't know how to do this, and where to get the patched bios files for my motherboard. Thanks
  9. Hi all guys I need your help and I hope you can help me I took the road to install High Sierra on my new build and now I have some doubt / difficulty I do not know how to solve. My configuration: 8700K Asrock Z370 Professional Gaming i7 AMD RX580 Nitro+ 8GB First I created the usb pendrive and I used Clover with the following configurations: Bootflag: dart=0 -v Kext: Bios Setting: VT-d = Disabled Share Memory = 128MB IGPU Multi-Monitor = Enabled XHCI Hand-off = Enabled SMBIOS: iMac18,3 So far no problem, it started successfully, I initialized the hdd in APFS and I ran the installation. Once finished, it started and I made the first configuration successfully. At this point I configured Clover the same way as the installation: Bootflag: dart=0 disablegfxfirmware shikigva=4 -rad4200 darkwake=8 Devices: Graphics: Kernel and Kext Patches: SMBIOS: iMac18,3 Kext: I reboot and start without problems, but I know there is some problem to solve ... for example, the video card seems to recognize it but if I run a benchmark with "Novabench" I noticed that the GPU is recognized as 1GB: With "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Disabled": || || || I tried to delete "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Enabled" and I recognize the card differently but the same problem presents itself: || || || Why is it recognized by 1GB instead of 8GB? While on System Profiler is recognized by 8GB .... I'm doing something wrong? I tried to enable also "Hardware Encoding & HEVC Support" but I noticed a detail that I do not know if it's right or not (Hardware Info "MacX Video Converter Pro"): Without "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Enabled": With "WhateverGreen.kext" and "RadeonDeInit=Disabled": [COMING SOON SCREENSHOT] Is it normal that this occurs? Which one is correct? I'm going completely in confusion I'm trying to figure out if I need to make any other changes to the system, if I add some other patches to make it work properly but I do not know where to check. I'm trying to configure the DSDT but DSDT Editor and MaciASL do not work, they do not open the DSDT.aml file generated by AIDA64. Do you know how to give me a hand? I'm banging my head for 2 days I thank you in advance for the help and I apologize for my english I hope I was clear
  10. Hi all, I'm trying to get this past post-installation phase, used USB to boot El Capitan to no avail. Please assist if you have similar board or suggestion, greatly appreciated. Here's the error and my specifications: Specifications - Asrock H77 Pro4 MVP (Modded BIOS 1.40) - Intel i5 3550 - Corsair Vengence 16GB DDR3 RAM - Onboard Intel HD Graphics 2500
  11. Hi everyone, I'm writing here to find a solution to the issues I'm encountering on my computer after installing OS X 10.8.3. My system is the following: i7 3770K, ASRock Z77 Extreme4, 2x4GB 2GHz RAM. I'm using the integrated HD4000 graphics. Everything seemed working after installing some kext (audio and OC'd processor with "an unified tool", video and LAN separately), but: - There's no way to make my computer sleep: the screen turns off, the power led begins flashing, but the fans keep going, and the motherboard display shows a (error?) code. Then I can't wake the pc but pressing the reset button. - Even if I installed the proper kext, all the USB 3 ports can't read any mass storage device I connect: if I plug in a mouse, or another similar device, it works flawlessly, but any USB thumb drive or external HDD aren't recognised. - After some minutes of normal usage, my computer loses the internet connection. A reboot is the only solution: after that, the issue disappears, but if I switch off the computer and, for example, I don't turn it on till the following day, it disconnects again. The third one is the most bothersome issue, because it often happens when I need a stable connection, so I'd be satisfied with a solution to just that one. Thank you for you help :wink2:
  12. So I have 10.9.3 working perfectly on my system, but sleep does not work. It is the only thing keeping my Hackintosh from being perfect. I have the ASRock Z75 Pro3 mobo. If anyone could help with this, it'd be amazing. Thanks! System Specs: CPU: Intel Core i5-3470 OS: Mavericks 10.9.3 Motherboard: ASRock z75 Pro3 Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB Storage: Samsung 840 120GB SSD & Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB GPU: XFX Radeon HD 7870 2GB PSU: Corsair Builder 430W (CX430)
  13. I have a [Asrock G31M-S R2.0] mainboard and i recently saw quite a number of guide ( most of them isnt really clear enough ) of how to boot mac os on the same mainboard .... Im quite new in this .... so is there anyone kind there to help me with some clear guide with uploaded file which may be use in the installation !!! In my machine : Intel core 2 duo E4500 2.24GHz - Asrock G31M-S R2.0 - 2GB DDR2 RAM - 160GB HDD - Nvidia GT 220 Someone please help me with this !!! I will appreciate it so much !! thank you in advance !!
  14. Specs: asrock fatal1ty z87, intel 4770k, gtx770. I've got ozmosis from there: http://www.osx86.net/category/22-asrock/ . I've tried both with 1.70 and 1.50 version. I've created usb installer using createinstallmedia tool and injected fakesmc kext onto EFI partition of usb drive. I've been able to boot the installer from usb drive, partition the drive to my liking and start the installation. After a couple of minutes the first part was done, pc restarted and I couldn't find a way to continue the installation. Booting into the usb drive would start the installation process over and I didn't have an option in boot menu to boot from the ssd I tried to install OSX on. Am I missing some kexts or anything like this? Is the problem with the ozmosis I installed? Or maybe there is a way to refresh somehow boot menu entries? I know I can do it with clover, but I don't want to, I really want to get ozmosis working. It looks nicer and cleaner without the need to load clover every time you boot the device.
  15. Hi there, I've managed to install Mountain Lion on my ASRock H55M Pro, a pretty smooth experience using this guide. One thing that doesn't work as smoothly is sound. I've installed VoodooHDA and it shows up two output devices (analog and HDMI) and one input. Ideally, I'd like to get sound over the optical out interface, which seems to happen when I select HDMI. Unfortunately, the sound is very distorted. Listening closely, I can hear some of the actual sound through the noise, so it's doing something at least a little bit right. I've tried setting the Format via the Audio MIDI Setup, and while it makes some difference, the result is always heavily distorted. A Google search revealed a bunch of things, like setting some parameters in the VoodooHDA.kext's Info.plist, but everything I've tried thus far did not improve the situation. Nor made it worse, for that matter. If anyone could give me some pointers, I'd be happy to try them.
  16. Hello! I'm new hackintosh user so I decided to ask for help. Currently I'm running Snow Leopard 10.6.6 by Hazard on my PC but the system freezes.

I end up trying with less kexts. They are the highlighted ones on the left list. The right list kext where still included into the new patched BIOS. I even tried with none the kexts on the left but end with the circle with the line anyway. My BIOS settings are optimized defaut, Share memory to 32MB, disabled serial port, ACPI, really don't know what to try next. 1) Is there a way to start the installation in verbose mode with a vanilla Yosemite USB installation ? 2) Any help would be greatly appreciated. What am I missing? My guess would be this OzmosisDefaults.plist file but I'm not sure. *** UPDATE I was able to boot in verbose mode using Windows+V keys Then I get the following error attached in the screenshot

  22. Hello, I installed Niresh maverick 10.9 on my system with default settings: asrock z77 pro4-m 16gb ram corsair vengeance curcial m4 256 gb i5 3570K Gigabyte GTX 660 OC but at first reboot i get stucked at this point: http://s12.postimg.org/s66jymh0d/foto.jpg I tryed this kind of boots: GE=NO -v -f GE=NO -v GE=NO -v -f USEkernelcache=no but i always get stuck at that point. In chat somebody told me that it's a GPU problem and to try disabling some kext but now i'm at work and i cannot test ^^

  24. Hello all. I used to have a a mostly fully working Hackintosh system, but due to the mobo's lack of power management (even patched) I gave up on it, and I swapped out to a different one that's considered by the community to be more Hackintosh compatible and suchlike. Here are my new machine's specs: Motherboard: AsRock Z77 Pro 3 (I don't know what BIOS revision) CPU: Intel Core i7 3770k @ 4.4 GHz with water cooling RAM: 16 GB DDR3 @ 1600 MHz Storage: 1x 1.5TB, 1x 1 TB and 2x 2TB, 1x 120GB SSD for Linux GPU: Zotac nVidia GeForce GTX 460 Amp'd Edition 1GB GDDR5 I believe.. the card is from 2010 Two 1080p 24" Displays I was able to launch the installer and successfully install ML with both displays active but my issue is that I can't get the system to boot up natively unless in Safe Mode (boot flag -x), though I guess that isn't quite native. I know my GPU is older, but on the aforementioned other mobo (now being used in my other desktop system that serves as my HTPC, of which I'd like to reattempt to Hackintosh soon) I was able to get my it working just fine... I think I had to get its device ID or something and put into my chameleon.boot.plist? Would my best bet be to get a GTX 470 or higher? Is getting this older GPU working a waste of time and effort? I intend to use OS X as a dedicated video editing 'workstation' as I want to have it triple booting with Linux (running now) and Windows 7 or maybe I'll try Windows 8.1. I've read peoples' success stories who have my same board, but they flashed a patched BIOS. I'm weary of doing that since I bricked a previous board I had and I don't want that to happen again. Any help would be appreciated greatly.
  25. Hello everyone, I have a new build and really want to install OS X Yosemite on it. Build is as follows Asrock x99 OC Forumla mobo Intel i7 5960x (OC'd to 4.4) 64gb Dominator platinum DDR4 Asus GTX 980ti strix I am using my MacPro to create the boot USB with a competing installer (5.2.0). Everything copys fine then I add the Kernal extensions for the 8 core processor. Then I boot from USB on the PC and I get into the competing boot screen but I only have Windows reserved and NTFS options available from my other hard drive. I am not given an option to boot into OS X. I have checked pretty much every guide online for the X99 install and 5960x and followed all steps to the tee but to no avail. I hope someone has an answer for this. Thank you all for your time and expertise. Brock
