[SUCCESS] Gigabyte H61N-USB3 - El Capitan

Hey guys finally got my H61N fully working with El Capitan


Spec:

- GIGABYTE GA-H61N-USB3
- i5 3570K 3.4GHz
- 16GB CORSAIR VENGEANCE BLUE (2x8)
- ASUS/NVIDIA GTX 650 1GB
- 128GB KINGSTON HYPERX SSD



NOTE: DISABLE USB 3.0 FOR THE TIME BEING - This is found in your BIOS settings under Integrated Peripherals.

STEP 1- Firstly I followed the install guide provided on tonymacx86 found here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capita...-el-capitan-any-supported-intel-based-pc.html BUT STOP BEFORE MULTIBEAST INSTALL

For the Unibeast method go with LEGACY BOOT MODE as your motherboard isn't UEFI.



STEP 2 - When you have installed and are still using your Unibeast USB as your boot drive, use Multibeast to install the bootloader & Realtek 8111 2.0 kext ONLY (do not install any other kexts at this point).



STEP 3 - Restart and boot without your Unibeast USB. Clover should automatically start your OS.

STEP 4 - Download the kexts, dsdt.aml and config file for your board from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/308411-h61n-usb3-on-el-capitan-with-clover

STEP 5 - Download and use Kext Wizard to install the kexts USBXHCI_injector.kext & AppleHDA-ALC889.kext found in insanely mac zip folder.



STEP 6 - Create a directory on your OSX install called 'Extra' inside there, put the dsdt.aml file found in insanely mac zip folder.

STEP 7 - Nearly there! Open terminal and type the following commands:

mkdir /Volumes/efi

diskutil list

Now find your hard drive on the list and then the EFI partition's corresponding ID, mine is disk0s1



sudo mount -t msdos /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/efi

STEP 8 - Inside the efi volume you just mounted there is a folder called "Clover" rename the 'config.plist' file 'config.plist.backup'.



STEP 9 - Copy the config.plist file inside the insanely mac zip folder to the "Clover" folder on the EFI partition.

STEP 10 - Restart, and enable USB3.0 in your BIOS settings under Integrated Peripherals.



BIG thanks to tluck on insanelymac and of course as always tonymac!!
I enjoyed this upgrade, although a little more challenging than previously. My iMessage also finally works in El Capitan, it hadn't been working since Mavericks before that!

Cheers guys,
Chris

Awesome guide...

But

Something isn't right with my install. I still am having the "No audio devices found" issue. Tried so much. I think i'm missing something here.

Thanks, was able to get up and running following these steps.

However. 2 Issues.
1. Display settings am only able to get 1024x768 no other options available. Shows 3mb graphic card in about this mac.
2. When I set HPET in BIOS to 64 bit, i get a kernel panic an continuous boot cycle. Shows the apple, then kernel panic, then reboot, etc. When I switched it back to 32 bit it booted normally.

Any ideas.

Do you have a DSDT in EFI\Clover\ACPI\patched? Have you disabled USB3 in the bios? Fresco FL1009 is problematic in 10.11.

I followed the insanelymac and steps above. USB3 is working, but 64 bit causes the crash.

No DSDT located there. Where do I do that at, or which dsdt do I place there.

Your better off not bothering with USB3 or if you do want USB3 then go back to 10.10 or replace the board. You can download a DSDT from DSDT Section.

What files do I need to modify if I have a 3770k with a HD4000 integrated graphics card?

Hi Saganic0,
thank you for your guide. I managed to install El capitan, however I'm stuck after step 2. It takes ages to load the system after the clover menu. I don't know where it could come; maybe bluetooth, as I don't have any dongle. Or do you know specific setup for the bios? (and yes, I disabled the USB3-ports ;-) )

Hi All, thoadr,

I have exactly the same problem... I can't seem to get a boot off the hd without the usb. I installed the bootloader using multibeast, as described, but the system never does actually boot.

I can boot with the usb stick. I even installed the dsdt and the kexts, but I just can't seem to get a boot without the usb.

Additionally, the graphics show as HD2000....

H61-N-USB3 with i3-2105...

Have you managed to overcome this?

Thanks!
