I think i solved the problem with random reboot:) (99%)

I removed PMDrvr.kext. Iwill come with final answer after more testing.

Alright, so yesterday finally I had some time to try and do the installation, but right away I came across a problem.
So, it went as follows:
Followed the guide
Boot from USB
Installer comes up and starts the installation from the USB
Then the first picture comes up (not sure if it's normal or not, guess not)
View attachment 292885
Then a bunch of lines comes in rapid succession and can't read any of it and stops in the second image

And finally, after a minute or so, the whole thing looks like a corrupted image and a typical from apple "No" sign comes up and just stays there, of course.

So, as I mentioned before, this is my first try to do a hackingtosh.
I'm leaving the components of my computer, jus in case.
-Core i7-6850k
-Asus uAtx x99-M WS motherboard
-Corsair Vengance LED 4GB x 8 RAM
-EVGA Nvidia GTX 980 ti Classified
-Corsair AX860i power supply
-Corsair H100i v2 CPU cooler
-I also have hooked a SIIG Legacy and beyond series, USB 3.0 type-c and A, PCIE card
-Samsung 960 PRO Series 512 GB but I have windows installed in this, I'm trying to install MacOS in a 325 GB HDD

So I hope this is enough information for a diagnosis. Thank you.

So... any advice?, or maybe another guide I could follow?

i updated to hight sierra like this with some little issues but it worked. to me the most importent thing is the post install procedure to get the usb ports recoginzed and a working bluetooth; working audio would be a nice candy on top.
"post" install? im just trying to get to the disk install section for starters. it hangs on osxaptiofix etc (tried all the combos)

SSDT with sleep susses.

Finally worked everything with one SSDT.
Enjoy.
SSDT-X99-All_Sleep.aml
I just add this code to SSDT-X99-All_Sleep.aml
GLAN,USB,HDEF,GFX1,XHC1
Code:
       Name (_PRW, Package (0x02)  // _PRW: Power Resources for Wake
        {
            0x6D,
            Zero
        })
    }

Great guide, makes everything so easy.

What works OOB.
Sleep, DP Audio, Wifi/Bluetooth, Handoff, iCloud, iMessage.

Issues:
I cannot get the USB write speeds to work correctly. Read 120 – 130Mbs Write 7-15Mbs
Also Photos app halts the entire system once it builds its library.


Sleep gives me poor performance on Geekbench.
Before Sleep: 21k multicore
After Sleep: 9k

Any hints what i should be looking into?


The Geekbench issues was solved with New Ram from the supported list.
