I have a P5Q-PRO that everything works on it right now.
But sound has been a frustrating issue right now.
Does anyone have any experience or opinion on how to get it fixed?
It is Realtek ALC1200 chipset, so I assume the HDA.kext isn't compatible here...:banghead:

Great tutorial, thank you cacamaca. I'm having issues getting my NVIDIA 8800GT recognised. I've managed to install the system using the flag nv_disable=1 (I've tried IGPEnabler=No and GraphicsEnabler=Yes but these do not seem to have any impact); however, even using that flag now the screen stays black after the apple boot screen. Any suggestion?

I am using the P5Q-E and I have attached a DVI to HDMI converter in the first screen slot.

Connect monitor to DVI/HDMI port without converter.

Try booting with "PCIRootUID=1 GraphicsEnabler=Yes -f"

Unfortunately that didn't work. However I was able to boot up using nv_disable=1 and GraphicsEnabler=Yes. I've carried on the tutorial but before restarting I'm thinking whether I should find some nvidia drivers...?

Update:
I've followed the guide and run MultiBeast with the following options:

IGPEnabler=No
GraphicsEnabler=Yes
Mac Pro 3.1 definition
Kext Dev Mode
Tony black theme


Then I've deleted AppleHDA.kext and run KextBeast after having copied the two Ethernet and Audio kext as provided. Now it errors on boot saying:

loading darwin 10.10.3
kernel cache file path = /system/library/caches/com.apple.kext.caches/startup/kernelcache
loading kernel cache
/system/library/caches/com.apple.kext.caches/startup/kernelcache
read hfs+ file: [hd(3,2)
/system/library/caches/com.apple.kext.caches/startup/kernelcache] 4096 bytes.
can't find
press a key to continue...

nv_disable=1 will disable the nvidia driver from loading.

Which version of Multibeast you had ran??

Is this an upgrade from any other version of OS X ?? or Fresh installation??

So why does it work only when I disable them?

There might be some problem with your card and NVIDIA driver available with Yosemite.

Which version of Yosemite you are running??


It's an upgrade from Lion

After upgrade have you ran latest multibeast with Chimera selected??

Have you removed the mach_kernel from org.chameleon.boot.plist??

I am running Yosemite 10.10.3

Yes I did

Here's My org.chameleon.boot.plist

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
    <key>Timeout</key>
    <string>5</string>
    <key>Kernel Flags</key>
        <string>arch=i386 kext-dev-mode=1</string>
    <key>Graphics Mode</key>
    <string>1024x768x32</string>
    <key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
        <string>Yes</string>
    <key>PciRoot</key>
    <string>0</string>
        <key>IGPEnabler</key>
        <string>No</string>
</dict>
</plist>

Now I can only boot if I run with -F and nv_disable=1. I am using a single DVI cable with no converters in between.

Install the attached kext.

Here's My org.chameleon.boot.plist

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
	<key>Timeout</key>
	<string>5</string>
	<key>Kernel Flags</key>
        <string>arch=i386 kext-dev-mode=1</string>
	<key>Graphics Mode</key>
    <string>1024x768x32</string>
	<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
        <string>Yes</string>
	<key>PciRoot</key>
	<string>0</string>
        <key>IGPEnabler</key>
        <string>No</string>
</dict>
</plist>

Seems like wrong org.chameleon.boot plist. Delete it then re-run multibeast with proper options selected.

cellulosa is there some reason for the "arch=i386" in your flags? I have not seen this call used in years.

<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>arch=i386 kext-dev-mode=1</string>

Good modding,
neil
