I've had flawless OSX experience with Mavericks and El Capitan - I'm wondering if anybody has attempted to install Sierra Beta on the old school gold standard GA-EP45-UD3P. I'm using a 'Q9650 CPU and a GTX-660 with 8GB of PC8500.

Looking for SMBIOS System definition that I should use, and if the DSDT.aml that i've used the past few installs will work with Sierra as well.

Thanks in advance.

Mac Pro definitions are out - you might try with the late 2009 iMac. It is about as close as you can come to your Core2Quad vs the iMac Core2Duo.

Hey!

I got this working.

I did a clean install & used these multibeast settings: https://www.tonymacx86.com/attachments/multibeast-png.180529/

With the following modification:
No Nvidia injection
System definition of iMac 13, 1 - very important if you have a GT640 graphics card.
Question: is there a step by step process for a clean install? After the install of Sierra, it prompts for restart...then I can't continue with the install. The system just boots back to the USB and I don't see the new Sierra drive installation...

Any and all help is appreciated.

@TightFade, please update your profile (personal details) with your Motherboard, CPU and iGPU or Graphics Card(s).
If you have a prebuilt computer enter make and model instead of motherboard.
