    El Capitan Install SUCCESS with Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H!!

    Great post but nowhere in it or your profile do you detail which revision of the GA-Z77-DS3H you have. May seem trivial but there are differences between the 1.0 and 1.1 boards. Thanks again! btw, I have a 1.0 with firmware 11a; upgraded from F9 back in June.
