Virigin Hackintosher here.

I have OSX Mavericks currently installing on a machine with a Gigabyte GA-H61M-S1 USB2.0 motherboard.

I've read what I can on DSDT and I can't find out whether my motherboard requires DSDT, and if so, what to do. The DSDT database on this site doesn't list my model.

Any help will be appreciated

Thanks

A DSDT should not be required IF you have a board with UEFI/Bios. The onboard 15 pin d-sub will not allow you to boot. A compatible GPU will be required. It is easier to plan in advance and solve potential issues before they happen. ;)

Thanks Adrian

Yes, I should've done more reading before diving in ;) I chose my components based on a published list of a working system, so I knew they would work. However the DSDT requirements had me stumped as I am new to this and didn't fully understand it.

It turns out my motherboard does have UEFI so editing DSDT was not necessary. I needed to set the BOIS settings correctly however.

Incidentally, for anyone else with this motherboard, this is what I did to set up the UEFI/BIOS:


  1. To enter the UEFI on a Gigabyte motherboard, press the delete key when your computer boots (before the operating system starts).
  2. When in the UEFI dashboard, reset your UEFI settings to their default by pressing the "F7" key.
  3. Set boot option 1 to 'UEFI - [YOUR HDD]' (first time you need to set this to your USB so you can boot from unibeast, then come back and change it to this later)
  4. Sata mode = AHCI
  5. EHCI Hand-off = enabled
  6. "F10" to save and exit
I then had a problem which took me an age to resolve. I got the 'Boot0' error when booting (unless the unibeast USB stick was still connected).

This problem is to do with the size of byte sectors on my HDD. It affects HDDs using the larger 4k byte sector size, and the thing that stumped me was the specs of my Western Digital Blue Caviar 1TB say it is 512MB. This is incorrect, it is actually 4k, so I needed to follow the instructions here:

http://www.tonymacx86.com/25-boot0-error-official-guide.html

this video tutorial makes the process of fixing the boot0 error a little clearer, although the command in terminal needed to be exactly as specified in the above link rather than that in the video (correct code copied below)
Code:
dd if=/usr/standalone/i386/boot1h of=/dev/disk0s2
All working fine now. Phew.

Hopefully this will be of use to other virgin Hackintoshers!

Update: it didn't work straight away with ethernet so I had to add the Realtek driver from Multibeast.

Glad that you made good progress :clap::clap:

I can recommend that you use dDisk Utility to repair permissions to your HDD/SSD after making changes. It keeps system error to a minimum.

If this is your motherboard then you will need to use a discrete graphics card as the VGA (15 pin din) socket is unsupported:
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4706#ov

You must have a digital connection from the motherboard and a processor that supports HD3000 or HD4000 graphics (socket 1155 hardware).

If you boot using -v then it will probably not be able to progress past the bluetooth controller text when you read the verbose boot - that is the point that the graphics start to load. Unsupported graphics cannot get past this point.

I have given a description about my mother board (i.e Gigabyte-GA-H61M-WW). I am unable to install Mac OS X 10.10 yet. You have advised me to get an way for fruitful result. But your instruction is not clear to me. So Sir, I request you to specify step wise what I will be done to succeed the Mac OS X 10.10 installing.

Sir, I also request you to tell me that HD 4000 graphics will be support or not support in my mother board.

No they can only work with a DVI-D, HDMI or DisplayPort connection. As your board does not have any of these I suggest that you get a compatible GPU (graphics card) - a cheap GT610 should make installation possible. You may need to use a bootflag at Step 4 (USB selection screen) of the main 10.10. installation guide
