@wildwillow,

This makes no sense my SSD is Samsung 850 Pro AHCI non NVme yet I get the same issue as this one post #51. I will try genericNVme to see what happens. I also have the IOAPIC clover patch for the Skylake MB's and that did not help. After that last line line in post #51 I keep waiting and I see the message Still Waiting for Root Device, then the screen text becomes shattered and unreadable with the prohibited sign.

Apologies for the late reply. Where are you with this installation? Waiting for root means its looking for the OS/installer. Installing the GenericNVMe.kext will do nothing for your issue with a SATA device. The post you read required the user to install the NVMe driver due to the fact that was what he was using. The IOAPIC patch is no longer required in later version of El Capitan.

Hi Ammulder,
Thanks for your outstanding and detailed work here. I have a skylake system and I have followed you usb procedure with general success. I have 14 listed in the IO registry, however I can't seem to get power to my lacie USB 3 drive through any of these ports. Wondering if I have made a blunder somewhere or am missing something. Would appreciate your input.

Hi all thanks for this unfortunately whenever I load these settings my machine works perfectly for exactly two days then starts playing up again. Is there something I am doing wrong? It also does not store my multibeast settings when I try to relead the build it says file corrupted. I have tried reloading multibeast but got the same results.

Thanks in anticipation.

Hi, SeasideMike! Thanks for your input. I have re downloaded MultiBeast and re done the build. The latest build is a bit worse as it does not pick up sound system now. Any other advice would be greatly appreciated.

I am FINALLY getting my new build here Monday/Tuesday next week. I will have a GTX 1080 and a i7-6700K in my build using the Z170 model of this motherboard. It seems like most people have been able to go through this build using the Z170 WIFI model just fine, but with the GTX 1080, I am a little worried.

Should I leave GPU unplugged while using macOS? Or would it be ok to plug it in have two HDMI cables plugged into the computer, so that one would be plugged in to the GTX 1080 and the other would be plugged into the motherboard its self.

Ultimately, if I am using macOS with a GTX 1080, what steps do I need to do to hopefully avoid errors? I plan on dual booting the computer with TWO separate drives, so that macOS is on one SSD and Windows is on another SSD. Is there any guide on how to do this safely?

TextEdit can lead to problems with your config.plist if you are not very careful. We recommend patching .plist files with Xcode or Plist Edit Pro.
