MSI X99 SLI Plus + 5820k + EVGA GTX 780: Stuck, Need Some Help


5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been working on getting a hackintosh installation going, but I've currently run into a snag with getting Yosemite 10.10.3 installed.


(No Pictures, because I'm posting this right before class starts)


What has been done

  • Obtained a vanilla copy of OSX 10.10.3 via the AppStore with OSX Mavericks
  • Created the installation media with "Something that isn't supported here"; Clover wouldn't work at all.
  • Patched the kernel on the installation media to support the X99 platform (from the tonymac forum)
  • Added VoodooTSCSync.kext to "Something that isn't supported here" in "/extra/extensions"
  • Used Bootflags -v npci=0x2000 (Gets past verbose text; locks up on white screen w/ beachball; before the start of the installer is active.)
  • Using nv_disable= 1 or 0 breaks loading. GraphicsEnabler=Yes / No doesn't seem to have any effect either.

System Information


Motherboard: MSI X99S SLI Plus
CPU: Intel i7 5820k (not overclocked)
RAM: 16GB DDR4 2133 Corsair Vengeance LPX
GPU: EVGA GTX 780 3GB (ACX) (STOCK) 03G-P4-2782-KR
Target Install Drive: OCZ Vertex 450 - 256GB SSD

Other Drives:
Crucial MX100 - 256GB SSD (Windows 8.1 X64)
WD 1TB Caviar Green - 5400RPM
Seagate Momentus 250GB - 5400RPM (Ubuntu 14.10)


Each OS has their own bootloader, and is installed with all other drives not connected during installation.


If anyone knows what needs to be done to get the system to get to the point of installation, feel free to reply.

Thanks, I've been trying to get clover set up, but I have no idea what the hell I'm doing when it comes to getting clover set up, config wise.


The current bootloader upgrade options






The current Kexts set up (probably VoodooTSCSync, HDA, & FakeSMC are needed)





VoodooTSCSync.kext is modified with this


Booting with kext-dev-mode or w/e is default w/  -v npci=0x2000 but currently suffers from a kernel panic on boot



({censored} quality + resets immediately after i'm able to take a pic.)


edit: also; here is my FULL part list @ PCPartPicker https://pcpartpicker.com/b/qLxYcf

First of all, Welcome to InsanelyMac.


Second, a very sweet config you have got there. (Titan X would have been more awesome)


Look here for CPU info.


Also, you should switch to Clover, if not already.


Happy hacking.

Found the root of my problem, at least for the method we dont speak about here. needed to update my UEFI

  1. On VoodooTSCSync.kext back number 1 on IOCPUNumber
  2. Remove NullCPUPowerManagement.kext,VoodooHDA.kext
  3. Select EmuVariableUEFI-64 and change VBox with HFSPlus 
  4. Use stinga11 kernel patch  put and replace /System/Library/Kernels folder
  5. Disable serial port in bios
  6. Use this config.plist
