    First boot = prohibited, subsequent boots = fine

    I'm doing a new build with an MSI Z170A-G45 Gaming and 6700k (disregard the other build in my sidebar). I've got El Capitan installed thanks to the tips in this guide (http://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/10-11-4-skylake-starter-guide.193628/). There's just one oddity. The first time I boot up the...

    (Ignore build in sidebar) Mobo: MSI Z170A-G45 GAMING CPU: 6700k (Skylake) Following the master El Capitan install guide (http://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/u...upported-intel-based-pc.172672/#install_elcap) First I followed the main guide, but after step 4, I got stuck. El Capitan had...

    Stuck at post-installation (probably simple...)

    Doing a brand new build (not the one in my sidebar). Mobo: MSI Z170A-G45 GAMING CPU: 6700k (Skylake) Following the master El Capitan install guide (http://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/unibeast-install-os-x-el-capitan-on-any-supported-intel-based-pc.172672/#install_elcap) Successfully got all the...

    Stuck on boot after El Cap install

    Disregard specs in the sidebar...that's my old Hackintosh. Today I'm Hackintoshing a different one, a new Skylake one. I'm using a ASRock Z170 Pro4 ATX LGA1151 Motherboard with a 6700k -- taken right off the April buyer's guide. I'm following the El Cap instructions here to the T...

    Hang on Apple logo

    Disregard specs on the sidebar; this is a new build. I'm using a ASRock Z170 Pro4 ATX LGA1151 Motherboard with a 6700k -- taken right off the April buyer's guide. I'm trying my best to follow the step-by-step guide for El Capitan (here...

    [SOLVED] Oops...disabled USB and now I'm hosed...

    I'm starting a new Hackintosh build (please disregard specs in my profile -- those are a previous build.) Mobo is a ASRock Z170 Pro4 and the processor is a 6700k. I followed the guide but got stuck at the black-screen-white-Apple-hang, so went back into the BIOS to hunt for things I might have...

    Freeze on shut down - any fixes?

    PLEASE DISREGARD THE BUILD IN MY PROFILE TO THE LEFT - THAT'S A DIFFERENT HACKINTOSH! I've been playing with this older PC that I've resuscitated to a Hackintosh. Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P Video card: PNY Nvidia GeForce GT610 (also tried an older PNY GeForce 8500GT DDR2) CPU: Q8400...

    Hackintoshable motherboards with 64GB RAM support?

    I know the "official" advice in the Buyer's Guide is to avoid Skylake for the time being. Are there any non-Skylake motherboards -- or any motherboards in general -- which are very reliably/easily Hackintoshable, which support 64GB+ of RAM? (I looked but didn't immediately find any.)

    PNY GeForce 8500GT DDR2 512MB PCIe sort of works, but...

    PLEASE DISREGARD THE BUILD IN MY PROFILE TO THE LEFT -- THAT'S A DIFFERENT HACKINTOSH! I've resuscitated an old PC, running on a Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P motherboard with a Core 2 Duo CPU, and (mostly) successfully hackintoshed it. The graphics card is a PNY GeForce 8500GT DDR2 512MB PCIe. I had...

    [SUCCESS] El Capitan on a Gigabyte Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P

    I just successfully resuscitated an older DIY PC and was able to put El Capitan on it and figured I would document it in case it was helpful to anyone. Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.66GHz Graphics card: PNY GeForce 8500GT DDR2 512MB PCIe Here's how it was...

    Partitioning 1 drive for BOTH El Cap and Windows (GUID/MBR/etc.)

    I'd like to retain the option to install both El Capitan and Windows 7 on my Hackintosh. How do I format and partition one physical drive to be able to do both? I'm pretty sure that the Mac OS requires a GUID partitioning scheme, and doesn't Windows require a Master Boot Record? Or can it...

    Suggestion: is there a post-build checklist?

    I just successfully built my first PC and, as of a few minutes ago, got El Cap up and running in it and as you can imagine, I'M THRILLED!! Is there a post-build checklist anywhere on this site? If not, may I suggest it be written? Something that has a list of things you should check to see if...

    Can't install El Cap: reboot after Apple logo

    [SOLVED] Can't install El Cap: reboot after Apple logo SOLVED UPDATE: Suddenly got this working. No idea why. Yesterday I tried about 5 different Unibeast installs followed by launches and they would always fail on launch on the PC, either at the Apple logo (sudden reboot) or at the 100%...

    Dumb question: do I need a video card if the CPU has video support?

    I'm looking at following the CustoMac Pro recipe from December 2015 (http://www.tonymacx86.com/building-customac-buyers-guide-december-2015.html#CustoMac_Pro) to a T, and it includes the i7-4790k processor. The 4790k chip does have graphics support (Intel® HD Graphics 4600). My video needs are...

    Hackintosh-compatible mobs that support TWO CPU's? (Or the very fastest...)

    New to the party here, and I'm looking for the most powerful Mac Pro replacement I can buy. So I've been through the Dec 2015 buyer's guide looking for the Mac Pro equivalent...except I'm not sure it really is all that equivalent since it's just got a single i7 chip in there, which is fast, but...
