-I couldn't get the HD4600 to play nice with the GTX780 for some reason so I disabled it.. But hey who needs it when you've got a GTX780.
-Also, you might get this error "Error 0x31 Block 0x0 Sectors 0" as I did. No idea why it's happening but all it does is slow down the boot up. Not much of an issue.
-If you have an extra HDD like mine and its formatted in NTFS cause you used Windows previously, OS X won't mount it. You'll need to get an NTFS software like Paragon NTFS for Mac which is paid
A) Initial Bios Configuration
1. Update the motherboard's BIOS to version F7 via Gigabyte's homepage. I actually did it using the @BIOS tool that Gigabyte provided via Windows 8 before I started to hackintosh it.
2. Enter the Bios and Press F2 to load the Classic View
3. Press F7 to load optimized default values then proceed to change it.
B) Installing Mavericks 10.9.1
3.1. Under Peripherals > xHCI Mode, change it to AUTO
3.2. Under Peripherals > xHCI Hand-OFF, change it to ENABLED
3.3. Under Peripherals > EHCI Hand-OFF, Change it to Enabled
3.4. Under Peripherals > Internal Graphics, Change it to Disabled.
3.5. Under Peripherals > Init Display First, change it to the PCIe slot that you placed your graphics card in.
3.6. Under Power Management > Wake on Lan, change it to Disabled.
3.7. Under BIOS Features > Boot Options, change it to your boot disk but pick the one that starts with P2 or some number like that.
- Do not select the UEFI version else you will get the missing operating system error.
4. Save and Exit Bios.
1. Follow the installation guide here for 10.9.1 by tonymacx86: Link
To boot from USB into installation, I did not need to include any boot flags.
However after installation and the first reboot, I had to include -x to boot into safe mode.
2. MultiBeast Configuration
- The TRIM Enabler is only if you have an SSD
- The WIFI card should work by default
- 1080p display is if your monitor supports that resolution and you'd like to see a higher resolution boot screen, otherwise completely optional
See if your installation works by rebooting! If all goes well, you should have had no need to include any boot flags.
