just bought a Asrock Z97E-ITX with a i5 4570S

This system is for my Windows CAS

just try to install OSX since nobody confirmed this mobo is working out of the box.

when i boot from USB installer, it will freeze on white APPLE Logo, without the spinning wheel.

is it require PMPatch for the bios?

i can't find the OSX ver. PMPatch, using windows ver., it said modules not found and patch pattern not found.


try to install Mavericks using Clover, also stuck in the beginning.

There is a build described here which uses that board successfully with Chimera/Multibeast. The board works very well with OSX.

Sorry, I thought you had said Z87 not Z97.

Have you booted with -v so we can see what is happening ?

Thanks for reminding

after -v it stuck at ethernet

then i disable ethernet in bios, it can boot to grey screen then freeze

then i plug out displayport, plug in DVI to my dell u2713h

finally i can install it



In the specification i found that Z97E-ITX using intel i218v LAN, not i217v

Maybe this is the cause?

but i dont know why dvi is ok but displayport is not

Maybe its an Asrock thing regarding the displayport.

Have you tried the dp monitor after installation ?

The fact it has completed the first part would give me hope. What boot flags are you using ?
Without any bootflags, it stuck at DRM message (ErrorCode: 8877652)

with -x npci=0x2000, it can boot to system with displayport or dvi

i have no idea how to configure it
after typical multibeast installation, it still need a usb drive and -x boot flag to boot
install bcm4352.kext, the wifi work well, but the bt can't search anything

try to install mavericks from Clover guide
it work, just the i218v still need to be disable
but i can't install the clover bootloader to OS drive (or i can't boot from os drive)


i am not familiar with hackintosh or computing language.
i just the guy rely on step by step installation guides
the last few hackintosh builds haven't got any trouble
this time, all i can do is searching from google, searching from tonymacx86, try and errors.

but sorry i can't spend more time on this issue.
