    Yosemite upgrade from Mountain lion

    I created a boot usb drive without ever deleting any files that were suggested and yet I also get the "can't find Mach Kernel" error. Even when it tries to boot it will freeze shortly and there's just a black screen. Adding various boot options doesn't help at all. Looks like it's another...

    10.10 SUCCESS GA-P55-USB3 (multibeast settings)

    You're doing better than I am with this m/b and setup. Only diff is I'm using a GT-240 video card. I can't get it to boot with the unibeast usb drive. Even with -x, graphics enabler and other mods. It starts out but screen goes black after a short time and freezes. Right now when I try to...

    Gigabyte boards becoming outdated over time

    I'm still using a couple of Gigabyte m/b that are built around the P55 system. Seems like they are getting slower and less responsive as the OSX operating systems keep advancing. Is there a time to move on to newer and "better" features as newer models come out. The same question would...

    UniBeast 3.0.1 and Mavericks Installation Failed...

    I've about decided that making a usb installer for Mavericks with Unibeast 301 is a gone case. Doesn't even take 10 seconds to give a "failed" message. Even tried different usb sticks. Don't really feel like troubleshooting all the esoteric hidden possibilities. Either works or it doesn't.

    Installation Troubleshooting Tips & General Recommendations

    Add a soundcard..... Adding a soundcard.... hadn't thought of that. I have 3 Gigabyte based machines and have only one with working audio since Lion. Have an 892, 888n and 889. It took forever to get one audion working and don't even know what did it. So what would be a good brand...

    multibeast not identifying the correct audio format

    Thanks. This seems to reference versions 10.7.2, 10.7.3, 10.7.4 and not mention 10.7.0 which I have on this one. (Have upgraded on another, but didn't solve anything) So, will this work with 10.7.0 ?

    multibeast not identifying the correct audio format

    Problems on all computers (gigabyte mb's) with Lion. Not ever before. Multibeast (461) can't seem to decide on the right audio id to install. On one mb have had three different ones installed and none are right. However, in one case it installed the 887 for an 888b but seems like they would be...

    USBMSC + waiting for root device error, Dell Studio XPS 8000

    I finally just cannabalized the 8000 for the parts; a good i7 processor, Nvidia video card, ddr3 memory, DVD unit, and hard disks. The case is useless since it takes an M motherboard size which isn't what's needed for a replacement. It had the Intel DP55M board.

    No ALC892 Sound-How to re-run MultiBeast

    There's got to be something lacking in the audio Realtek kexts for Lion. I have machines with 888 and 892. One finally works, the other is yet to make a sound. These are both friendly Gigabyte boards. Never had a problem with Snow Leopard.

    GeForce brands and models....

    Is it correct to assume that as long as it contains the Nvidia chip that any brand of GeForce video card will suffice. Also would assume that any of the later types (like GT520, GT430) would use the kexts provided for a build. Thanks

    Possible audio kext problems on 4.5?

    So that's why my audio is still not working in 10.7 with multibeast 4.5.2. At this point is there any way to get a copy of the multibeast 4. version?

    Computer can't be "verified" by Apple.....

    Yep, that sounds like what's happening here. Can fix that. Thanks

    Computer can't be "verified" by Apple.....

    What is the difference between the org.chamelion.boot.plis and the symbios.plist which is also in the same folder. The serial number shown on About This Mac is for a real mac pro built in 2008 with an Xenon processor and specs different from mine. Maybe this is why Apple is rejecting this...

    Computer can't be "verified" by Apple.....

    No, that file was not included in the .plist. Is there any place or format that needs to be followed in adding this? Thanks for the help.

    Computer can't be "verified" by Apple.....

    Nothing works. Apple is checking the serial number of my system and rejecting it as unknown to them. Don't know how other non-mac hardware gets past this point but looks like I never will.
