Asus P8H61-M LX R2.0 - El Capitan 10.11.1 - 100% Working

Recommended Posts

Update: macOS Sierra 10.12.4 version available here.

 

Hi fellow mainboard users,
I'd like to share my success story of installing El Capitan (10.11.1) on this incredibly cheap but powerful motherboard.

 

I wrote an extremely detailed guide (applicable to noobs as well) for installing El Capitan on Hackintosh, check it out!

Audio

 

Getting the on-board ALC 887 (0x10ec0887) to work in El Capitan is tricky, but I was able to do it by trying lots of kexts and scripts, until I found a combination of 2 that worked:

 

1. HDEnabler1.kext - by toleda (https://github.com/toleda/audio_kext_enabler)

2. audio_cloverALC-110.command - by toleda (https://github.com/toleda/audio_CloverALC)

 

The HDAEnabler1.kext can be copied safely to EFI/Clover/kexts/10.11/. The audio_cloverALC-110.command needs to be run (after mounting the EFI partition via diskutil) and the correct Audio_ID for our ALC 887 is 1. Note that you will need to go into the System Preferneces -> Sound -> Output and select the hardware device for this to work!

 

Both files are attached.

 

Networking

 

The on-board RTL 8169 ethernet controller works great after installing the attached Ethernet-RTGNICv2.0.6For10.7.mpkg.

 

Graphics

Depends on your card. In my case, the GTX 650 worked out of the box (without graphics injection or what-not) with QE/CI support.

Hi,

Try booting with -v flag to see where it fails.

 

hi

I have tried almost all combinations of flags possible. The problem is, it loads the kexts so fast and then suddenly reboots, I cant even read where the error is at.

 

It can be the kernel (mach_kernel), graphics kext, I have reinstalled a couple of times using difent USB installers/guides, all with same problem, keeps rebooting after loading a few kexts.

 

Thanks for the reply :)

Hello,

 

It seems most El Capitan installations dont get USB 3 / 2 working properly. Have you test speed and funtionality???

Hi,

This mobo doesn't have USB 3 (at least mine doesn't).

 

USB 2 ports in the back work out of the box.

 

I think the front ones do not work, but I can do without them.
