    Hi there I have an MSI Z170A Gaming M7 and an EVGA GTX 980 Superclocked ACX 2.0 graphics card.

    When starting up I often get a prohibition sign twice in a row. At the third start everything goes smoothly.
    Is it possible to improve my configuration in the Bios?

    @DanvZ, please update your profile (personal details) with your Motherboard or Make/Model, CPU and Graphics Card.

    Well if anyone is following this thread, save yourself the grief and get a Gigabyte motherboard. I had one and it had defective pins on the processor socket, they were out of stock so they swapped it out for an MSI 270 Mortar and I have been fighting with it for weeks now to get it working. If I can't get it to work in the next week, I am buying a Gigabyte. I am following various routes described in several threads here but wanted to post this just in case since I was looking here for answers too.

    I totally agree with @MotionC , I'm new to Hackintosh build, but I regret so much that I purchased the MSI Motherboard. For my son that uses the PC for gaming on Windows 10 it runs fine but for Hackintosh, I've had all the problems you can have. Don't buy MSI Motherboard!
