I found this thread which I followed, but without success... :(
I got stucked in boot. Tryed 2 GPU's Nvidia GT220 and ATI HD5750.
Both of them hangs on same spot. I don't understand lot of that flags and settings so maybe it is something small but I can't found what.
Reloaded BIOS and set same settings as other, no success...
4 days of searching and painfull try and fail. Please somebody help me if you can.

MOBO: ASUS P5Q-E
CPU: Intel Xeon E5450
GPU: ASUS EAH5750 or GIGABYTE GV-N220D2-1GI
RAM: 4x 2gb Kingston 800MHz
HDD: 160gb WD blue

Personally, I'd recommend gaining some experience by installing Sierra instead (10.12) as it's less fussy about legacy hardware and the Unibeast and Multibeast tools are more mature.

If you do want to try High Sierra on your old BIOS-only era 5-series motherboard, you'll need to start by patching your ICH10R SATA controller so that the High Sierra installer can see your hard drives.

I recommend starting here: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/solved-ich10r-and-high-sierra.233435/page-1

If the above thread is too hard/confusing, I *definitely* advice choosing Sierra!
