motionworks posted a topic in Installation GuidesHello Community, I would like to share my El Capitan install guide for the owners of Asus X99-E WS with 5960X Cpu. There are a few guides around with 5960X install, unfortunately with this specific motherboard i couldn’t achieve any success. I always got reboot or freeze after PCI Configuration begin or other problems. Finally i succesfully installed El Capitan 10.11.6. So far everything looks great, no problem at all. Steep stepping is working too with the help of custom SSDT. I didn’t invent anything, just educated guesses and resources from community! Before begin, thank you for all talented people around like; Pike R. Alpha, Brumbaer, SammlerG, stinga11, chris1111, the Clover team and many more… My System Specs Are Asus X99-E WS Intel i7-5960X 64GB DDR4 Ram Nvidia Geforce TitanX 3 x SSD 6 x Hard Drive (4 of them in RAID 10) Noctua CPU and Case fans. The following features are operational: CPU energy management operation from 1.2Ghz to 3.8 GHz (Sleep not working. Black screen) 1 x Ethernet adapter with Gigabit Support (AppleIntelI210Ethernet) NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X working correctly.

No need for Mac Pro 5,1 or older) Nvidia WebDriver-346.03.15f03.pkg (After install completed needs system security update to install) Cudadriver-8.0.46-macos.dmg CAUTION: Please don’t use my SSDT if your cpu is not overclocked to 3.8 Ghz. Please read SSDT part to regenerate yours. Step by Step USB Guide: Download all needed software to the computer you will use to prepare the USB stick. (Kexts and clover configs included with the topic) The USB stick will be erased. 1 - Start Disk Uitility Select the USB itself. 2 - Select Erase 1 Name: ElCapitan 2 Format: OS X Extended Journaled 3 Scheme: GUID Partition Map 4 Press Erase 4 Quit Disk Utility 3- Open Terminal a.

Change install location to USB (ElCapitan) b. Customize Select Install for UEFI Booting Only In Drivers64UEFI only choose (DataHubDxe-64 and OsxAptioFixDrv-64) After finished use Clover Configurator to mount EFI drive or manually mount. (It is better to change USB EFI name to another like USBEFI or INSTEFI not mandatory) I include my INSTALL_CLOVER folder (please compare or just use this folder) (All necessary kexts are in CLOVER - Kexts - Other) Included Kexts are (FakeSMC.kext - USBInjectAll.kext - VoodooTSCSync.kext - XHCI-x99-injector.kext) PLEASE don’t forget this guide is only for 5960x and X99-E WS. So VoodooTSCSync.kext is changed to 15 Install USB Clover Config Tips: In this part I will explain my clover config. (This folder is already included. Maybe helpful for other x99 owners) 1 - ACPI a. DSDT Patches I have used these DSDT patches with XHCI-x99-injector.kext for USB3 support. (It is important to disable Asmedia USB3.0 Controller in BIOS only Intel is supported) EHC1 to EH01 find 45484331 replace 45483031 EHC2 to EH02 find 45484332 replace 45483032 XHCI to XH01 find 58484349 replace 58483031 b.

My processor overclocked to 3.8 Ghz. In my opinion the most important thing is disabling Asmedia USB3.0 Controller in BIOS. Otherwise you will fail with PCI Root Configuration. Caution: By the way my bios Fan settings are custom made, don't use with yours. INSTALLING - Proceed with USB stick, boot into OS X installer, select your destination drive, format with Disk Utility if necessary, and reboot. - After boot don’t remove USB stick boot with it but this time select freshly installed OS X drive. - After successful login, install Clover bootloader with the same settings usb install PLUS select Install RC Scripts on Target Volume - Before restart use my OSX_CLOVER folder to replace you OSX EFI. (I used non default theme so it is better to change it to default or download mine.) FIXES - Sound ALC1150 Fix is already done with my OSX_CLOVER. I injected “1” id and used FixHDA. - Graphics Use Nvidia drivers then replace nv_disable=1 with nvda_drv=1. If you will use Macpro 6,1 please use AGDPfix.v1.3 - SSDT Please don’t use my SSDT in clover folder if your CPU is not overclocked to 3,8 Ghz. Use appropriate SSDT with your own settings. You can create your own SSDT before installing OS and replace with USB - CLOVER - ACPI - Patched. (Both for INSTALL and OS X EFI) Use piker alpha’s ssdt generation script from https://github.com/Piker-Alpha/ssdtPRGen.sh If your cpu is not overclocked, use this one for stock “ ./ssdtPRGen.sh -p ‘i7-5960X' -f 3000 -turbo 3500 ” Please enjoy your Hackintosh Yucel BIOS.zip INSTALL_CLOVER.zip OSX_CLOVER.zip
