I have seen this question asked a lot, and lots of suggestions regarding a "just compatible" card for High Sierra. I have read endless posts regarding problems with installation. I have used Nvidia cards for a long time now and still have the old compatible AMD cards, which do work, but are...
High Sierra wasn't easy mainly because of the graphics drivers. So to document what I did in hopes other will benefit, here is what worked for me.
Gigabyte GA-Z170MX Gaming 5 F4 UEFI BIOS
Intel 4.1 GHz Core i7 6700K
64 Gb DDR4 2400 RAM
512 Gb Samsung 850 Pro
I have waited till now to install Sierra on my "Production" Hackintosh . I am waiting till the bugs are out of High Sierra to try it and Sierra does everything I need. There may be many how-tos on Sierra installation on this board, but in case there are others needing cross references on how...
I just finished building a new Hackintosh on a GA-Z170X-UD5 motherboard the components listed below.
i7-6700K 4GHz LGA1151
64Gb Crucial Ballistix DDR4-2400 RAM
Nvidia GTX-960 OC
I used OSX 10.11.4 created by Unibeast 6.2 and Multibeast 8.2.2 for the post...
The system I have has:
2.8 GHz Intel Core i5 processor
8 Gb 1066 MHz DDR2 RAM
Nvidia GeForce GT240 video card 512Mb RAM Graphics
I created a non-UEFI installer USB stick with Unibeast onto an 8Gb Sandisk USB stick and installed from that. On initial boot, I had to...
UPDATE: This configuration updates to El Capitan using the tonymac86 recommended method described here at this link ...
I followed the directions EXACTLY (don't miss a step!). The...
Yosemite, GA-Z77X-UD5-TH, Network Slow, SOLVED
This is an interesting quirk, and I would like to know if anyone has experience this or has any ideas. I have the above listed mobo and have installed Yosimite by the tonymacx86 upgrade method, which worked great, by the Unibeast/Multibeast...
The system specs are:
Motherboard: GA-Z68XP-UD3P F5 BIOS (using DSST.aml, not the beta UEFI BIOS)
CPU: Core i5 Sandybridge
Graphics: Gigabyte Radeon 6850
RAM: 16 Gb
WD 500Gb 7200 Drive
Method: I created the Unibeast Mavericks USB install stick per the tonymac instructions using the...
Here is the method I used. I did not want a new install because I had a fully tweaked system that had been heavily used and I depended on. Thanks much to Colton328 and this thread: http://www.tonymacx86.com/mountain-lion-desktop-support/60730-mountain-lion-6xxx-gpu-issues-fix-inside.html ...
I have been combing forums everywhere trying to find the solution to the Linux/OSX dual boot problem.
After looking high and low for an answer, I found a post that recommended a fix for pointing grub2 towards the OSX partition. I tried it by editing the /etc/grub.d/40_custom file (obviously...
I thought I would document this install. Using Tony and Macman's iBoot+Multibeast method made this infinitely easier. Those are great tools.
My Hardware list is:
Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4P Motherboard F10 BIOS
Intel Core i7 860 Processor
4x2 Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Memory
