It looks like Intel have released the first of the i7 models : NUC5i7RYHR

CPU : Broadwell 5557U, 3.1GHz, Turbo 3.4 GHz, Dual Core i7, 4mb cache <-- Nice !

Graphics : Intel Iris 6100

Apple hardware match : MacbookPro12,1, 13 inch, early 2015 (Same CPU & Graphics)

This looks the best option for hackintoshing one of these new NUC's so far.

Point to note however, if you look at the models I posted on page #1 and follow the naming convention, this has the soldered down Intel Wifi card.

The NUC model we really want to see is NUC5i7MYHE, if they release such a beast.

I think that's a wise advice. I should have waited and read this before I plunked down my money on an i5 model + M.2 PCIx HD.

I'm pulling my hair out right now, because I am able to install Yosemite 10.10.3 + Unibeast. But my keyboard and mouse goes bonkers. During install, they're jumpy and unstable. After install, they don't respond at all.

I must have tried almost all possible combinations of the following boot flags:

-v -x
npci=0x2000
UseKernelCache=No
maxmem=4096
PCIRootUID=0/1
USBBusFix=Yes
cpus=1

Nothing seems to fix the mouse and keyboard going bonkers.

If I was in your shoes, I would drop the USBBusFix, npci and PCIRootUID. Probably drop the CPUS= as well.

I would also be paying close attention to the DSDT and SSDT.

Just sayin...

Actually, I'd LOVE advice from you, Wonky. I'd been reading your Yosemite NUC guide up and down and sideways... And I've been using your NUC install pack 6.0 for many things (except for the kernel, of course).

If I drop a lot of those boot flags, I get the dreaded "Still waiting for root device..." that goes on forever.

And the cpus=1 is the one that actually gets me to the install screen. But the mouse and keyboard is all jumpy as hell. Still, I managed to install, but when I boot into it, mouse and keyboard are dead and unresponsive, no matter what boot flags I use.

I'm not educated at all on DSDTs and SSDTs. What exactly are they, how do you make them, and are there ones for NUCs available?

You can get a native DSDT by either booting into OSX if possible and extracting it, or booting from a linux CD/image and extracting then saving it that way.

If you got the thing installed, then reboot with -v and see what is reported. Even if the mouse isnt responsive it may give you some clues.

Is using a intel broadwell nuc possible now with the release of 10.10.3?

Took a screenshot with just -v bootarg:

As for extracting the DSDT file, I can't do that from the Yosemite install, since I can't use the keyboard. But I'm willing to wipe that, install either Linux or Windows and extract it that way, and post it here for public view.

However, can you or anyone walk me step by step as what I should change in the DSDT file to make everything kosher, and hopefully make the kb/mouse work on this thing? Sorry to sound like such a noob, but I have zero experience fiddling with DSDT files.

Thanks

Kinda...

The new release now recognizes the broadwell CPU, but other things (namely keyboard and mouse) do not work right now. I was able to install 10.10.3, but can't use it because the inputs do not work.

Hopefully, we can sort this all out collectively....

You dont need to re-install to get the DSDT. Boot from a linux boot cd or thumb drive and you can extract it once booted up. We cant change the DSDT until you can get a clean copy of it extracted.

OK, I'll boot up Linux and get it extracted once I get home -- if it's the last thing I do :)
