Help with Ivy Bridge CPU


6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



hopefully i am posting this to the corerct place, i am trying to install OS X to a ivy bridge based machine. but i keep running into a wall any direction i go. i have a gigabit z77-d3h system board with a i5 ivy bridge cpu. 1 hard drive 2tb with a seperate hard drive for osx *( as a test)


i gave tried creating a bootable usb with 10.7.4 on it and if i manage to get it to boot it says installs corrupted and cant proceed. and if i try a earlier lion version it works but sees no drives.


if i use iatkos l2 cd as a trial it just reboots soon as the os x logo hits. which i think is the ivy bridge.....i think. and wont boot off usb :(


maybe anyone can point me somewhere to help. many thanks

I'd recommend you wait till the final release of Mountain Lion later this month. That way you'll have an easier, cleaner, more stable install.

OS X 10.8 will have native support for the new 7-series chipset, intel USB 3.0, and ivy bridge CPU and GPU.
