    I did try that, but only a couple of times. Mostly I'm using boot arguments npc=0x2000 -f and -v. My motherboard is an Asrock X99 WS and my processor is an Intel 6 Core Xenon. A buddy of mine found a thread here that has some other options that I'm going to try. I'll report back on any progress that I make.

    Thanks :)

    Thanks, I'm going to give this a shot over the next couple of days. I originally planned to install Yosemite, as I'm using this for music production and some of the software I use isn't compatible with El Capitan yet, but hopefully it won't be long until it is.

    Thanks :)

    Anyone experience slow shutdown/restart time? Any tips? Thanks :)

    I must bid adieu. My system is up on 10.11.1 and I have deleted my backup copy of 10.10.5. Hope to see more of you in El Capitan!

    I thkn there is a gap in the Unibeast installation techinque and the Clover way TonyMac is recommending. Can anyone clearify a little? I'm getting stuck in a boot loop after creating the clover installer.

    All I know is that I spent days trying to get a xeon working in my rock solid x79 board. For the x99 I went with the 5960x. It may seem like a couple tweaks and you're home with that setup, but unless you don't mind going solo and figuring out the custom kernel stuff I'd stay away from xeon in hackintoshes.

    Just my 2 cents. I'd love to know if you get it working though. You should check out the 2696 v3 on eBay and geekbench scores, if you do go xeon. Was never officially released by Intel but it benchmarks close to the 2699 v3 for around 1500 bucks. 18 cores!!!

    Good luck

    Did you ever manage to install El Capitan on 5960?

    I'm still struggling with my X99 build. I've had the reboot loop issue as well as others, depending on the boot arguments and which type of partition I create. Regretting attempting an X99 build for my first one for sure....
