Hey guys, hope all is doing well with your x79 boards. Right now I am running Yosemite and am very pleased with everything but I'm not able to get the latest updates and security. Plus i'm about ready to format and start new.
Having an issue. I have the GA-X79-UP4, GTX 780 w/6gb ram, Intel i7 4930k. Using Sandisk extreme hard drives. Normally booting into the installer is the hardest part for me. This time around i'm about to boot into the installer using the bootflags: -v -cpus=1 npci=0x3000 nv_disable=1 PCIRootUID=0. HOWEVER. No matter what I do, I can't seem to get the installer to run on the formatted SSD I had prepped for the OS. I've tried multiple drives, formatted several times for GUID. Followed every different walkthrough and I receive this error message. "A disk with a mount point is required". Can't find anything online about it. I'm convinced there is a trick to getting the board to work with Sierra but I haven't found one yet.
If anyone out there would be able to help, that would be great! I would document my experience on here so that one more person can have a success story on x79 boards for Sierra.

Hi Joe. I'm thinking of installing Sierra on a GA-X79-UD3 which used to run Mountain Lion really well. Hence, I've made a return to the forums to see if anyone has done this.
Just wondering if you got this rig working.
