Hello from Athens Greece.
I need some help from you regarding el capitan and vanilla hackintosh for my system.
I was very impressed from your post back in those 2013 days
That Black Prodigy became one of my dreams..so i followed your post and made a super hackintosh
(but with a white prodigy box)
Now i want to clean install el capitan from scratch to a new ssd (samsung 840 eve 120gb)
but with my other hardware untouched.
Let me remind you about it :
motherboard : gigabyte Z77N-WIFI (with atheros wifi card)
cpu: Intel 3770k (ivy bridge)
ssd 1x vertex 4 128gb (Windows 10), 1x samsung 840 evo 120gb (Wannabe Elcapitan)
hdd : 1x 1Tb
Gpu: MSI GTX 770OC 2gb.
Bios rev: F3
I made the Unibeast usb and booted up successfully into elcapitan.
Thats as far as i can go without messing up my system with kext injections and dsdt editing...
Can you please give me a heads up..just enough for me to understand what i am dealing with??
Clover is something that i haven't even touched yet!
Thank you for bothering reading my pm!!!

Thank you in advanced..keep up the excellent work!

vasilis77, I'm sorry, but I can't really help out with that hardware: I no longer have the GA Z77N WiFi, and I know El Cap could really mess USB ports up, especially in 7 series mobos... so my suggestion is to open your own thread in order to get the best info to reach a fully working system with OS X 10.11 and also to share all those informations with anybody who needs them. I know there are a lot of people using El Cap flawlessly with Z77 motherboards.
Good luck!

I tried to do some research today..and found a dsdt patch in GitHub for the board.
patched my dsdt with no errors..used mac mini 6.2 as definition and managed to top 17.300 in geekbench(stock values)
.:clap:. All that with working usb2 and 3 ports and sleep/wake.
The thing is that the system needed some Kexts and once installed Realtek kext for wifi(had now wifi before) I lost sound..and cannot find a way to get it back on!
i am new in clover so I don't know the settings in configuration!
when I run the HDA patch from terminal again..lost wifi too(no hardware installed)
a bit confused...anyway..I will keep trying and when I come with a good result..I will find time to post a simple walk through ..
Thanks again for your time
Sorry, but this is completely off topic. Please, vasilis77, post your work in progress in the right thread. TIA

Hi Giacomoleopardo.

I'm trying to use your guide for my setup.
- Asusu P9X79 WS
- i7 3930k processor (6 cores)
- 64GB Ram 1600MHz.
- GT 610 (which should be natively supported).

I've had the setup running before, very stable, on Mountain Lion, using a simple Unibeast installer. But I couldn't make it work on Yosemite, so I thought I wanted to give your beautiful guide a try.
Unfortunately I get stuck, when trying to load the Yosemite installer. The computer just looses connection to the screen with this command:
ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::registerLPCDriver - WARNING - LPC device initialization failed: C-state power management not initializedSo I think it's something to do with the DSDT file. But I've just tried all options I could think of, following your guide from the start like 10 times. Trying making the DSDT from the DSDT guide you made, and also trying to modify you different pre-made DSDT to 6 (12) cores rather then your 8 (16). I've attached the DSDT I'm currently trying with :crazy:

I was hoping you (or somebody else) might have an idea and could point me in a direction :) Thanks a lot in advance, Jesper
