I'm new to hackintosh setup. I have tried one two years ago and failed it. I'm now trying to give one last attempt before selling my PC.
I'm starting this thread since the links in the old threads are not working and are also not updated for EL capitan OS.

My SPECS :
Mobo: ASrock z77 pro 4
Processor: i5 3570k
Ram : Corsair vengeance 8gb 1600mhz
Storage : Seagate Barracuda 1tb
Graphics : HD 7850

My Aim is to make my pc Run Yosemite or El-capitan Os. I tried searching for patched bios for my motherboard, the links dont work anymore. My main problem is that i dont understand most of the terms used here in this forum as im new to this Hackintosh stuff. I would be ready grateful if someone gives me a proper and clear explanation and method to install the OS in my pc.

I am also planning to buy a SSD if this setup works well.

Don't use asrock motherboards, a good chunk of them don't recognize clover when trying to boot from the hard drive. Gigabyte is your best bet for hackintosh.

I can understand that gigabyte motherboard has better compatibility towards hackintosh setup but I'm not planning on buying a PC as i already have a macbook air and have just purchased a Alienware Laptop so cannot afford to buy new hardware .
The reason i want to build a Hackintosh is to have the ability to use Final cut pro X since windows can't run Final cut pro and thats the only video editing software i learnt.


Wont i need any patched BIOS and any other changed to be made while installation?
and i don't understand whats a "MSR LOCK "

Your configuration will work. All it requires is adding a manual entry in your BIOS for your clover partition. Details can be found here:

nothing wrong with asrock boards infact most devs and coders prefer them.set shared memory to 32mb for hd3000 and disable csm,sata to ahci,and disable sata hotplug. rom i uploaded i pmed patched and has ozmosis in the firmware.rtl lan and voodoohda 2.8.9 inside.use createinstallmedia to make your usb. no need for clover bootloader now.

Thanks a lot for the bios file man. I want to know if i should select UEFI Boot mode or Legacy Boot mode during UNIBEAST install.
Or if I'm using createinstallmedia terminal how will i be able to boot the setup

I did as you said and when i insert the usb drive into my PC and boot it, i get a prohibited sign when it loads.


EDIT : I installed Yosemite atlas after ejecting my video card. TH installation process was smooth after i removed my video card. Now when i install my card its laggy and glitchy and its not running at full HD. The Graphics info says 7850 HD card but the Vram memory shown is 5mb. My card is 1gb.
I installed a kext once i installed multibeast, im guessing thats troubling the graphics. What should i do now?

EDIT 2: Graphics card is fully supported now. It Supports natively but i have to use -PCIRootUID=1 during boot else i get the no signal issue.
