New OS X compatible motherboard -> QUO

Recommended Posts

Advertisement

This version of vHDA is the best I have ever used, and I have used vHDA since before it was even released to the public!

 

The detection is the important part and all players that I've tested can see SPDIF and do offer Encoded Digital Audio option if present.

 

Is it possible to convert it to a kext? I would like to try it on Clover.

Sorry, my post about vHDA was directed at a Quo AOS user. Your comments would be more appropriate in the Ozmosis topic since this thread is for QUO owners.

First time post, long time lurker.   I updated my bios on my QUO mobo to the latest Ozmosis 1479 bios.  In Bios Features, Boot Mode Selection settings, I choose UEFI and Legacy, so that I could either boot into OSX or Windows 7.   Upon save and exit, "F12" key pressed for boot options and my legacy Windows 7 HD does not show up as a boot option -- Only UEFI HDs show.


 


I have retried settings several times with the same results.  In the meantime I have reverted back to the 894 bios.


 


Anyone have the same problem?   What can I do to resolve this?  Thanks for your assistance.

Install Windows in UEFI mode.

Or

Open Terminal.app and run this:

 

sudo nvram 1F8E0C02-58A9-4E34-AE22-2B63745FA101:DisableBootEntriesFilter=%01

I haven't had a chance to install the update BIOS yet, but am planning to do so when I get home. Does anyone know if it changes the situation with Wake on Lan?

 

I've never been able to get it to work on my board, and so far as I can recall there were no answers to someone else's questions on this a few weeks back.

 

 

On a second point:

Install Windows in UEFI mode.

Or

Open Terminal.app and run this:

 

I've brought across a legacy Windows 7 HDD from before my Quo build, and have unsuccessfully tried to convert a cloned copy of this disk to UEFI. Are you aware of any easy way to convert to UEFI that I could try on another clone?

Upgraded to the new BIOS.  The only issue I'm having is that no matter what I do, it boots into my Windows 8 drive.  I change the boot priority and when I reboot it puts windows 8 back at the top.  I had to disable the SATA port it's connected to to boot into OS X.   It's not really that big of a deal since I don't have to physically unplug it, but I get the impression here that I am the only one experiencing this.  Any ideas?

Did the same to me with Win7 EFI install which is first drive in the system. System Preferences -> Startup Disk is the solution if you select the disk you want to boot in there using the reboot option then it should go to your OSX install and continue to do so every boot, then the old stand by for a Gigabyte board the F12 key at startup gives you the boot device selection menu hopefully it is enabled on these boards.

I'd like to add that you can also use bcfg boot add/rm command from Shell to change your boot order to any way you like.

 

Also handy to get rid of them EDK entries that seem to pile up, keep the last one in the list it seems to be the real one that actually takes you to a shell for any that try it..

Well that fixed it, something so simple I didn't even think to try.  Select the startup disk in System Preferences.  Thanks.

Your welcome, good to hear you got it going if you every reset the nvram you will need to redo it.

Hi @ll

 

I am considering updating to the new bios. My system is working fine, just updated to 10.9.5. Considering my configuration (see below), is updating a plus ? I read the notes coming with the bios and as I am rather noob to these matters, it was a bit like Chinese to me.  I had no problem with precedent bios upgrades. Are any precautions to be taken else than backup, before updating. Is the procedure the same than precedent bios upgrade : take out graphic card, upgrade bios, put back graphic card, reinstall sound patch, etc.

 

Thanks for any advice.

Did you re-patched the Audio after upgrading to 10.9.5 if so I would suggest you re-apply 10.9.5 Combo Update so your AppleHDA.kext reverts to its original state.

The new BIOS will inject a kext to take care of your audio.

Backup and then upgrade BIOS ( I did not remove the Graphics Card prior to upgrade)

Hi IronManJFF

 

Thanks for your fast answer. I did re-patched the audio indeed.  I'll follow your recommendation when I am ready to upgrade.

It's very simple. OS X -> System Preferences -> Startup Disk -> OS X. Reboot your system. See what happens.

      Hello guys.
      This is not my first hackintosh, but this will be the first time to create a hackintosh with thunderbolt.
      First of all, i have read some info about MoBos with Thunderbolt, but im a bit confused.
      I need to create a working hackintosh with Thunderbolt 2/3 .
       
      At this moment i know that we got 2 options (Correct me if im wrong),
      -we can get one MoBo and ad a Pcie Card with thunderbolt (only if the chipset is compatible)
      -we can get one MoBo with thunderbolt integrated via USB-C connectors (like the new Macbook Pro)
       
      What are the possible MoBos that have integrated Thunderbolt vía USB (or directly thundelbolt ports)?
      I have read a lot of buyers guides from some webs , but a lot of that MoBos with thunderbolt enabled, are "discontinued" or without stock
      Should we only choose Gigabyte MoBos? 
       
      I Have been too looking at Gigabyte website, and seems that the Chipset Z170 its the only one with Thunderbolt (vía USB-C)
      ports.
       
      Could you help me with these please?
       
      Thanks You So Much!

      Hello.
       
      It's been about 3 or 4 years since I built my first, and so far only hackingtosh. I did so fallowing a guide written by good guy ^Andy^, witch came with hardware recommendations. I now feel it's time for me to upgrade to a faster system to keep up with heavier work loads. I'm strongly considering building a hackingtosh around the new i7-6700K Skylake processor, but I haven't come across guides for  this type of processor. I was wondering if any of you could recommend me a motherboard that's compatible and that won't become a hassle when trying to install OS X. Also, if there's a guide you know of, please let me know.
       
      Thanks in advance.

      Hi,
      I'm currently running a Windows 7 x64 PC with:

      8GB DDR3 Ram

      AMD FX 4170 GPU

      AMD Radeon HD 7870 CPU

      1TB HDD (Windows 7)

      150GB HDD (Blank)
       
      Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 Motherboard
      I am aware that getting OSX on an AMD machine is not an easy task, but can it be done with my setup?

      I am currently running OSX 10.8.3 in VMWare which is OK but lags a fair bit and lacks any kind of 3d acceleration and would like to be able to dual boot it natively alongside windows on the 150GB HDD.

      Thanks

      Makes OS X and the installer work with the nForce 430 chipset.
       
      More specifically, allows OS X/installer to see the SATA and IDE (yes, IDE, too!) devices plugged in to your computer, including hard drives and disk drives.
       
       
      This kext does NOT make nForce LAN or anything else work, just SATA and IDE/ATA HDDs and ODDs.
       
      ---------------------------
       
      Works great with the Compaq Presario SR55 series!

      Intro
      Hey guys,
      I'm a linux guy so I'm not afraid to get down and dirty here. With that said my current project is to install osx86 onto this server motherboard and get the 8800gts working with QE/CL. I currently have a working system with Ethernet but no sound or DVD drive. The DVD drive wont reconize and I did not yet install a sound card. I am using the chocolate_kernel and do not need any boot flag to boot up. The real problem is the graphics. If I can get this up I don't care about DVD or sound.
       
      Setup
      Intel Server mobo (I think this is the board)
      Dual Processor - Dual Core 3.0Ghz
      4GB DDR2 - 800Mhz
      8800gts 320mb [g80]
      320GB - Portable HDD (for sandboxing/installing)
      iPortable Snow Leopard 10.6.2 - chocolate_kernel
       
      Problem
      The 8800gts 320mb [G80] will not install. No QE/CL, no hardware acceleration. No Front Row. I have tried the following:
      GraphicsEnabler=yes
      EFI Studio
      OSX86 Tools EFI tool
      GraphicsEnable.pkg (or something rather. I can get the exact name)
      Deleted Framebuffer.kext & installing the kexts that come with iPortable Snow

      I have tried 3 different EFI strings that I all found online. iPortable Snow comes with NVinject and NVenabler but they are pkg and I cannot find any documentation on them on the internet. Funny thing about the EFI strings, they install to a directory NOT in Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist . I have to copy the plist from a different directory where EFI Studio and OSX86 Tools spits it out and copy it to the Extras folder.
       
      Please help I am 5 days into this and I have lost sleep over it thinking I am 'almost there' with each step. Thanks, any help is greatly appreciated!
