Re: Hackintosh in a GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 SAT
Hi I got the same MOBO along with a GTX480 Geforce by gigabyte 6gb corsair, 2tb Seagate barracuda, thermaltake 850w power, this pc was tucked away in the store thought will give it a shot at making it a hackintosh, to cut the story short, on my macbook pro that runs osx lion 10.7.4 i downloaded unibeast and made a 16gb USB - installer, it run perfect followed all the instructions to the T and came up with the screen that installation is complete.......now this installation did a 11.8 mb space on the USB and didnt take much time less than a min.
i pluggged this into the pc and setup bios and booted thru usb, my screen goes balck and nothing seems to happen till i hit k or enter and the screen comes to chimera (USB LOGO) with boot.....written and does not show me the USB ..??
can some of the experts tell me where i am wrong ?
ON the boot: i type -v, -x etc as per the unibeast manual and i get the screen cant find mach_kernel .
Still unclear how to get audio working on GA-X58a-UD3R mobo rev 2, bios- FF. I get no audio devices showing up. I would appreciate ANY response from the community - is this a known issue - or just something I've broken?
Your board has an ALC889 sound codec. If you are using the DSDT from this forum corresponding to your board and BIOS version then all you need to install is the corresponding patched sound kext from Multibeast install. Only this kext (only one) should be installed and of course must select system utilities in MB to repair permissions. If installed ANY other kexts with MB before it will never work. Have to find out which ones and delete them or start over. Always run Sys Utils from MB whenever installing deleting a kext.

i have the same MB as you (rev 1.0 at bios ver 5). i had a working build for SL. now i want to see how well i can tackle unibeast/multibeast. do you have any settings written down or anything you could pass along that might be helpful? wanted to see if i have the MB settings correct. can i go to mavericks?
i tried a quick usb installer test with unibeast and it fails after the boot screen. i have the geforce 9800 gtx. i tried the boot settings recommended, but it still goes black after a few seconds.
for some odd reason, under windows 7, it says i don't have a sata3 connection for my ssd, but that's another story, i guess.
