    [GUIDE] Jerivalu’s Build: Fresh 10.11.5, Z170X-UD5 TH, 6700k, Intel HD 530, Thunderbolt, Dual Boot

    I'd assumed that AGDPFix wouldn't be used anymore - I've just gotten accustomed to running it after any security patches. I rebooted a few times, clearing kextcache, etc...to no avail. Once I ran AGDPFix, my box rebooted, and the GUI loaded with full acceleration. kextstat shows that Lilu and...

    So, just to follow up...this is a known issue, apparently. Switching over to APFS not only sets up new partitions, but requires some snooping around for UUIDs and partition labels. You can't link directly to the page, but just google "Create Custom Entries to Hide Preboot and Recovery APFS...

    Thank you!!!! It didn't solve my problem, but it DID slow the boot/crash sequence down enough for me to see the kext that was failing - CPUSensor. Tracing that down led me to find an OLD FakeSMC loaded in /S/L/E. I killed that, blew out the prelinkedkernel, updated the cache and rebooted. It...

    Here 'tis. There are also a few files in /Library/Extensions leftover from 10.12. I'm having to boot into Recovery to move the files to/from a USB drive.

    Hello gents. I need help. I tried to update to 10.13.6 today after making a mess of my kexts. I was trying to update a few kexts, and I couldn't get my system to complete the OSX boot. So I decided to make matters worse by installing 10.13.6 - I assumed it would overwrite my mistakes...

    Shutdown in 10.12.6 takes significantly longer than startup.

    I'm having a very similar issue since installing 10.12.6 - when I shutdown it just goes to a black screen with the spinning wheel - but mine will never fully shutdown. I have the FixShutdown_0004 enabled (it's been enabled for a while) and I haven't found many other folks that started having...

    Has anyone that's updated to 10.12.6 had any issues with shutdown? Since the update, when I go to Shutdown everything seems to work...but it never powers off. I am left with a black screen and the spinning pinwheel.

    I upgraded my BIOS to F22 (I'm on a Z170X-Gaming 6) and updated to Sierra. After the BIOS update I did have to change all of the Hackintosh settings back as the upgrade seems to have set me back to default. I have the option to save profiles, but when I applied the backup profile there were...

    Can you outline the steps? I'd prefer to avoid backing up / nuking if possible...but I'm open to whatever :) Thanks

    Thanks for sharing your experience. I was looking at the Clover upgrade guide and it looks SO easy https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/direct-update-to-macos-sierra-using-clover.201465/

    Ok, it's been long enough - has anyone upgraded their box (built from this thread) to OSX 12? I've been holding out because everything has been working great, but I figured I'd ask to see how big of a hassle it is. Thx

    PSA: Gigabyte F20B BIOS changes

    I have a z170x-Gaming 6 and just updated to F20 - not sure just how closely related they are, but the version # jump is the same. My experience was - my EFI path entry for OSX was blown away. I had to boot into Windows and use EasyEFI to fix it - just had to create a new entry and point it to...

    Just a note. I was having intermittent issues trying to stream media from my rig (built using this guide) to my nVidia Shield. I kept blaming the shield until i started digging deeper on my rig....turns out my NIC was flapping, sometimes a lot and sometimes a little. I can see it via my...

    Interesting..I just noticed that OSX is only seeing 1 of my memory sticks now, but it's at 3200Mhz instead of 2400. I guess I need to play around with the memory settings some more. Edit - Actually it sees 2 x 8GB sticks instead of 2x16GB. Interesting. I never setup my memory in Clover...

    They are decent I guess...they don't look great compared to Jerivalu's 64bit scores, but I don't know that those tests are comparable.

    I'm not having any random restarts. I've been playing around with the OC options on my board (a z170x Gaming 6 - close enough to the UD5). After listening to Jerivalu's advice and reading through other forums I have OC'd my 6700k to 4.6Ghz, with the Cache ratio also set for 4.6Ghz. I used the...

    Is anyone else using the Optical Audio out option? I can't get OS X to setup "encoded audio" on my optical out. If I use MplayerX I can get DTS/AC3 surround out to my amp - but I can't do the same in VLC. In reading through a few posts it appears that VLC relies on the system to determine...

    I'm completely new to this kind of overclocking. I've seen several guides, but none of them make me feel very comfortable with too much tweaking. I bought a 6700k and an OC friendly board (Gaming 6) with full intentions of OC'ing - I'm @ 4.4Ghz now using the board's built-in profile for my...
