I have installed OSx86 10.11 (El Capitan) on April 2016 on my Asus Z170 Deluxe system.
For installation I used this Thread.
I used it a lot and it worked well. Meanwhile I switched to Linux and I use Win10 time to time. So OSX was forgotten. Also it did not boot correctly anymore.
Now I wanted to start with a fresh installation and use OSX more often again. I want to use OSX 10.13 High Sierra. Is it working on my Asus Z170 Deluxe? I have the same Hardware as of April 2016 only the graphics card was updated to a Nvidia GTX1080.
My Hardware in detail: Asus Z-170-Deluxe (Bios 3801), i7-6700k, EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 SC GAMING ACX 3.0, Samsung 950 Pro/M2 NVME 512MB, HDD 4 TB)
Can I use some of support files from the old thread for the installation (see attachment)? Can I still use Clover 2.3k r3292 Special Edition v2 ? Or do I need a newer version?
Has someone installed High Sierra successfully on the Asus Z170 Deluxe ?
About some hints where to start I would be thankful.
My system is Asus Z170-P Motherboard i5 6600K Processor NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4095 MB Be-quiet 500W PSU Crucial 16 GB 2400 MHz DDR4
xHCI Handoff enable Serial Port disable SATA AHCI mode IOAPIC 24-119 Entries (enable y disable) two mode stuck
I can not build a robust and stable system, The system Sierra is already installed but when I restart or shut down, I get the error Still waiting for root device error, but after too many reboot ( from 2 times to 9) start correctly or other times leave too minutes, with prohibited symbol and finally starts. Once started recognised correctly HDD.
Also I tried with a new EVO860 nvme SSD , but I have the same problem.
I dont know because sometimes yes sometimes no, the system stuck in this error
I add some information files and logs.
Here is my little guide to install OSX 10.6.8 on the EeePC 1000H.
I'll quote some of the CicciMTS and scenemusic topics, thank you guys.
What is needed ?
A Asus EeePC 1000H
A 8GB or more USB Pen drive
An empty hard disk drive
An other mac or hackintosh
A USB mouse
My package of tools, including the latest Apple OS X 10.6.8 Combo update
Restore and Boot from USB
On your mac/hack, go to Disk Utility, find your USB Pen drive, erase it with GUID Partion Table and Mac Extended Format (journaled). Then, restore your iAtkos image on your USB pen drive.
Next, you need to make your USB drive Bootable. Find Chameleon in the tools Folder, open it and install it on your new Snow Leopard USB pen drive.
Boot into BIOS, if available, set the SATA mode to AHCI. If you can't it should work too so don't worry
Select your USB Pen Drive and boot on it. Chameleon will appear, select your iAtkos install drive, and type -v to boot in verbose mode. After a moment, the OSX installer should appear. Trackpad will not work so plug in a usb mouse. Select your language and click next. on the top of the screen, find disk utilty, and erase your HDD with GUID Partion Table and Mac Extended Format (journaled) options, and close Disk Utility. Click Next until the installer ask you on which drive you want to install OSX. Do not install it yet, click on Customize. Select the following options :
-BOOT OPTIONS 32BITS GRAPHICS ENABLERS ETHERNET BUILTIN USB (all)
-PATCHES CREAR EXTRA FAKESMC DISABLER RTC KERNEL ATOM EVOREBOOT SLEEPENABLER UUID
-DRIVERS SATA-IDE SATA/AHCI or INTEL SATA/IDE if you didn't enable AHCI in your bios
-PS2 VOODOOPS2 or APPLEPS2
-LAPTOP HARD BATTERY CARD READER THERMAL ACPI
-VGA INTEL EFI STRING GMA950 (all)
-WIFI Ralink RT2860
-WIRED ATLANSIC L1E
Click OK and install OSX on your HDD.
First Boot and update to 10.6.8
Remove your USB stick from your computer, Chameleon should appear, boot your new OSX installation with -v boot flag. Once you've created your account you should be on your desketop.
Run the Combo Update installer but do not reboot!! Force Quit out of the installer (hold down the Option key and click and hold over the Installer icon in the Dock. Select Force Quit) and Run the Legacy Kernel installer and then reboot the machine.
now you should see that your graphics driver doesn't work anymore. Run Kext Utility and let it repair the permissions and update the cache. when it says "all done" drag and drop all the graphics kext into kext utility, and when it says "all done", reboot your computer. Cross your fingers and reboot your computer. You should now have a fully working EeePC 1000H, with graphics, sound, wifi, USB, bluetooth and Ethernet Working with the lastest Snow Leopard update. You can have the latest security updates on your system with Software Update, it will not damage your installation.
Sorry for my bad english, I'm french. Fell free to ask questions if you need, thank you guys
I know the machine and OS X version is old, but its the machine I have and I want to know if I can install iATKOS S3 V2 on the machine?
My specs are:
A-Bit AG8 (not to be confused with the A-Bit AG8-V)
2 GB DDR400 RAM (An additional 2GB of DDR400 RAM will be installed soon)
Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz (OC to 3.52GHz)
EVGA GTX 260
WDC Blue 1TB
(A soon to be installed IDE DVD player)
(A soon to be installed USB 3.0 PCIe card)
System has Windows 8.1 installed and I plan on dual booting (maybe triple boot with linux)
Currently my problem is that I am having issues getting the installer to start, I have used the following flags:
-v /arch=i386 /legacy
-v /arch=i386 /legacy /graphicsenabler=yes
all have the same result: a reboot just before the apple logo would normally show up, after all the kexts are loaded by chameleon, the system will just reboot. What do I need to do?
Hey, so I just installed Sierra using the iAtkos SR and everything works except my Graphics... It shows that I have only 5MB Video memory.. My card is AMD Radeon R9 270.
Tried different stuff when installing, like different framebuffers like Hamachi, Futomaki, Dayman, but nothing seems to be working. Tried installing extra stuff with a "AMD Radeon GPU Injector Tool" but nothing worked.
The weird thing is, everything worked flawlessly on Yosemite. I even updated without problems via the AppStore, and I never did anything special for my graphics back then as far as I remember. I was running a pretty stable hackintosh on Yosemite (It was iAtkos too), but wanted to upgrade.
Has someone with the same graphics card encountered this issue, and fixed it?
