Hello,
are there clover configs for Intel chipsets 3200 and 3240 ? I have two HP Proliant Servers ML110 G5 and ML110 G6 where I want install OSx.

Here are my configs:

ML110G5
CPU: Intel Xeon 3040
Chipset: Intel 3200
RAM: 4GB
external SAS RAID SC40Ge (LSI 1064 chipset)
only USB2.0 ports

ML110G6
CPU: Intel Xeon 3430
Chipset: Intel 3240
RAM: 4GB
external SAS RAID HP P212 (LSI 1064 chipset)
only USB2.0 ports

Tried several graphics cards (Ati x700, Nvidia 6600GT, Ati HD4670). I'm running El Capitan with Ati HD4670 on my another desktop PC (Intel C2Q 8300, with MB Asrock 4Core 1600 Glan) with 3D acceleration without any problems.

ML110G5 and hdd in external SC40ge controller (not created raid drive)
  • can boot installer to graphics mode
  • can install El Capitan
  • after restart Clover does not see any drives, only USB installation disk
  • when I remove drive, and put it in internal SATA, boot start, but stuck on "waiting to root device"
  • tried several options and clover configs

ML110G5 and hdd in external SC40ge controller (created 1EE raid drive)

  • can boot installer to graphics mode
  • can't install, because installer does not see raid drive
  • tried several options and clover configs

ML110G5 and hdd in internal SATA controller

  • can't boot to installer, boot start, but graphics does not load
  • tried several options and clover configs
ML110G6
  • can't boot to installer, boot start, but graphics does not load
  • tried several options and clover configs

I desperately want to run El Capitan on one of these server, because they are powerful as my desktop or old MacBook (Late 2007) and I can expand it to 16GB RAM. My desktop MB is limited to 4GB.

I will be glad to any help.

Thank You experts.
