Hello everyone


I've been trying to assemble my first Hackintosh. Here is my build


Intel Core i9-9900K, 3.6GHz, 16MB
Asus ROG Z390 MAXIMUS XI CODE
SSD Samsung 970 PRO 512GB PCIe x4 NVMe
SSD Samsung 850 Pro
MSI GeForce GTX 970 GAMING 4GB DDR5
Noctua NH-D15
SeaSonic Prime Platinum 1300W
Ballistix Ballistix Sport LT, DDR4, 32 GB,3200MHz, CL16


The process apparently stops on full bar with apple logo. I've installed High Sierra on a USB drive...

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

You are just wasting time if you don't boot in verbose mode.

Your new image is in verbose mode and appears to show a graphics problem.

So what should i do?
I have used dart=0 -v nv_disable=1
nv_disable=1 should allow you to use the GTX 970 in VESA mode until you have installed the OS and the web drivers.
There are many reasons why this may not happen and you might consider removing the graphics card and install using the processor's integrated graphics.

Hi! I figured it out.. For now most functions works fine..

Can I ask you a few things?
1. I have a problem with two monitors. When both monitors are connected, a black screen appears after booting. One DisplayPort screen and the other HDMI -> DVI-D
2. I can't deal with Audio drivers.. I already have the latest kexts.
3. Can bluetooth and wifi card work in ROG MAXIMUS XI CODE motherboard?
