such as these in a string - -x -v -f acpi=off PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=No ( or Yes)

Installing an Ivy CPU on a Sandy board requires a BIOS update to support the CPU. Have you checked the GA website for your board and updated the BIOS if it is available? Without BIOS support for the CPU, you will not get any OS to run on the system.
