Hello all,

I'm working on my first build. Was able to get Yosemite installed, no problem. When I used multibeast I selected the DSDT for my Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R (2.0) BIOS FH and installed those drivers only.

Removed the USB to restart and my screen hangs on the Apple logo. When I reboot with the USB I get the main install again. Do I have to reinstall OSX?...

Any ideas on how to resolve this would be appreciated. thx

Boot with -v and find out where the hangup is.

Your Profile Graphics states you have a ATI X600 Pro graphics card. Rare. Try GraphicsEnabler=Yes at the Chimera boot screen. (Use the SpaceBar to stop the timed loading bar; tap the SpaceBar again and enter the aforementioned boot flag.)

Thx for the tip on -v.

I reinstalled Yosemite and it runs with no multibeast drivers.
When I ran Multibeast I added the DSDT for gigabyte ga-x58-ud3r FH selecting only 1080p Display Mode (as I was getting only low res).
Now the system will not boot unless I use the Unibeast flash drive, then it stalls at the Apple logo.

Here are the -v of my current situation. Any suggestions pointing me toward a solution would be greatly appreciated. Thanking you in advance :)

btw... I'm running a dual boot with Windows 7 Ultimate so I can post these messages.

Hello,

I also just came across these DSDT install steps on your site and I'm looking for clarification here. Does this need to be done in addition to the Multibeast selection and install of the DSDT?

How to Install a DSDT

1. Download a DSDT from the DSDT Database or Create Your Own DSDT Using MaciASL
2. Rename the file DSDT.aml -
I did not rename the file prior to installing it with Multibeast.

3. Navigate to /Extra -
Q. Where do I find this?

4. Drag/drop the DSDT.aml into /Extra

Following instructions is a good habit to get into. :thumbup:

The Extra folder is located in the root of your installation drive.

Hello all,

Pluggin away here. Just like to say thanks for your patience and answers to my questions, as this is new to me. Found the /Extra folder after installing the MB driver. The DSDT file was there, but I copy/pasted it over anyway.

I started with a fresh install of Yosemite. I didn't need any boot flags to install. Once opened I get internet and low res from my video card. Yosemite is sluggish but it works. I found that as soon as I select the DSDT file and other drivers in MB, Yosemite is more responsive (before reboot), then the system hangs on reboot.

Here is the MB driver set I installed and the subsequent boot error in verbose.

Any assistance in interpreting the error would be greatly appreciated. thx

... moving along. The Chimera boot loader is working fine. Here's what I get when I boot in -x.

I see there's a...

BUG in process suhlperd[155]: over released legacy external boost assertions (0 total, 0 external, 0 legacy external

Any ideas what this could be referring to?

Given where it is stopping it is either choking on the NIC driver or graphics.
You are duplicating items to be installed in MultiBeast needlessly.
Look at what UserDSDT installs (bottom of right pane in MB) and what you selected under customization. Select one set or the other but not both.
For this board you basically need UserDSDT with DSDT matched for model and BIOS version on the desktop,
audio kext, networking kext and CMOS reset patch if I remember right. EVOReboot I think is already in UserDSDT.
Wait until you have all that installed and booting and backed up (cloned is best) before installing anything else.

UPDATE: Still no stable reboot after I've installed UserDSDT, audio kext, both networking kext (RealtekRTL81xx v0.0.90 and RealtekRTL8111 v1.2.3 seperately) CMOS reset patch alone and with EvOreboot, and GraphicsEnabler=Yes in multiple combination.

Here are the latest MB settings and Verbose print screen.

Needless to say, any suggestions on what may be halting the reboot would be greatly appreciated.
