This is not the same motherboard. I strongly suggest to follow the OP guide of this thread, not the Gigabyte Z77N one. The following advices are part of Zotac guide.1. BIOS:
- initial giacomo's tutorial on the Prodigy-cased Z77N-build
That's strange...I can confirm Mieze's New Driver for Realtek RTL8111 v. 1.2.3 still works on my Zotac rig. The file uploaded in the OP here is the same downloaded from insanely repo2. Pre-Install:
- tony's Guide w/ your files => the LAN-kext didnt work, I had to rename it from ...8111.kext ...81xx.kext
Make sure both LANs are enabled in bios settings.
Bios>Advanced>OnBoard Device Config, set PCI-E GigaLAN1 Controller and PCI-E GigaLAN2 Controller to Enabled
Toleda reports correct 7 Series boards layout as 3, not 1. Make sure your config.plist has the FrameBuffer Capri binary patched, open it with Clover Configurator and check Kernel and Kext Patches3. Post-Install
- Audio: I had to use Audio ID 1, not 3
The right command to gain Bios boot menu is F8 on Zotac boards. F12 is used by Gigabyte boardsAnd then something VERY awkward happened: I had HUGE difficulties to enter the BIOS. No chance to get into Boot Options via F12, no way to get into BIOS without permanently hitting Delete. If I did try "normally" nothing happened, the screens were on but simply stayed black. I finally managed (by permamently holding delete) and booted into Clover on my original test install, this one went well.
However, an another restart the same happened. It was almost impossible to enter the BIOS, instead the screens were on but simply stayed black.
Normally a GUID partition is recognized by the bios as long as the UEFI mode is active. Maybe the bios is not working properly? You could always flash to the latest oneCould this have something to do with NO MBR-based hard drive in the hacky any more?
