Hi there I'm having some issues i would like some other opinions on.
I have been doing a lot of reading and research but i am stuck on this problem.
Something is not loading correctly and i dont know what it is.

I have to use all these flags -v -f npci=0x2000 kext-dev-mode=1 nv_disable=1
This gets me to the 3rd PCI Configuration begin, if i don't use these flags i only get to the first PCI Configuration begin.
Anyone knows what this 3rd one is and how to get around it?

I have followed this installation process posted below and this has gotten me the furthest. (Instead of following the basic 10.1 thread)

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Did you make sure to delete the previous .kext files in /USB/Extra/?

Also because you are using an Asus board try updating the bios, I remember hearing there were issues regarding that.

Good luck!

Thanks for your response, i did indeed uninstall the previous kexts from both the specified locations that were in your post. I have seen that 1 other forum member has installed this board successfully with the same BIOS version that i am using, but with another CPU (a xeon e5)
So i have been stuck at PCI Configuration begin for 3 days now :(
Trying all sorts of boot flags and so far none has helped.

-v -x -f npci=0x2000 npci=0x3000 kext-dev-mode=1 nv_disable=1 PCIRootUID=0/1, changed the SMBIOS plist to MacPro5,1 instead of 3,1 tried another graphics card = same PCI configuration begin as before.

The boot flags shouldn't be the issue. I would just try re-doing the entire drive creation.

Thanks, I've done it twice all ready, just to sure. Any ideas?
