Hello. Its my first time installing MacOS on a PC.
I have pretty much experience on Linux and Freebsd and my main OS is FreeBSD.

Hardware specs are:
M/B: Asus Z97-k/USB3.1
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHz
GPU: nvidia GeForce GTX 960
RAM: Crucial BalisticX 32G
HDD: Samsung SSD 840 EVO 120GB


I read all the tuts and guides available about the procedure of installing Mac on a PC
Also i see successful installations on Asus Z97 | Asus Z97-A/USB3.1 | Asus Z97-PRO wi-fi AC | Asus Z97 DELUXE

I have already applied all the suggested bios options and try to boot with and without GPU using HDMI and DVI but the results are the same.
i only get a black screen with a blinking cursor while trying to boot with:
iBoot Haswell 1.0.1
iBoot 3.3.0
UniBeast 8.1.0 on SnowLeopard

Unibeast 8.1.0 on El Capitan

Any suggestion would be really appreciated.
Thank you in advance.

Profile updated..! :)

I finally managed to install El Capitan with success. I use a new flash drive and everything worked fine.

Thanks.
