I've recently completed installation on an X99 build featuring the following:

ASUS X99 Deluxe Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813132260

Intel Core i7 5930k 6-Core processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=19-117-403

16GB Crucial DDR4 2133MHz RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148859

and a Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 with 4096MB of VRAM: (No link for this one because it's out of stock everywhere :( )


So far there's a few things that are not working as of now:

Audio: None of the ports are detected as of now, although, I've heard about a fix for this that would to change the device ID in the AppleHDAController binary from 20 8C to 20 8D but I'm unsure on how to go about doing that. USB Audio works fine though! Help would be highly appreciated!

Bluetooth: I have yet to get Bluetooth to work, but this may be solved by adding a kext or two. I have yet to try it.

iMessage: iMessage still fails to work on a X99 build, but support for this will come in time. I just gotta be patient!


HOW I DID IT:

Step 1.

Downloaded OS X Mavericks 10.9.5 from the Mac App Store. Partitioned the Flash Drive (SanDisk Cruzer Glide USB 3.0 64GB) as Mac OS X Extended in Master Boot Record (THIS IS IMPORTANT, MAKE SURE IT'S MBR). Ran UniBeast to setup installation Flash Drive

Step 2.

I added VooDooTSCSync.kext (6-core) to /Extra/Extensions, Renamed my Flash Drive to "USB" and patched the mach_kernel by typing the following into Terminal:

Code:
[COLOR=#000000]sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x74\x11\x83\xF8\x3C|\x74\x11\x83\xF8\x3F|g' /Volumes/USB/mach_kernel[/COLOR]
Code:
[COLOR=#000000]sudo perl -pi -e 's|\xEB\x0A\x83\xF8\x3A|\xEB\x0A\x83\xF8\x3F|g' /Volumes/USB/mach_kernel[/COLOR]
Step 3.

I installed per usual installation from the UniBeast Installation Guide. Boot Flags: ncpi=0x2000 -v

Step 4.

After installing, I went back into the OS X Installer and copied over the mach_kernel from the flash drive to the Drive OS X was installed to

Code:
[COLOR=#000000]cp /mach_kernel /Volumes/Mavericks/[/COLOR]
(Replace "Mavericks with whatever the name of your installation drive is)

Step 5.

After booting and installing Kexts using Multibeast per usual, I had to use the "EFI" partition to allow OS X to boot without using the USB Installer as ASUS has changed some stuff around and dropped support for native booting from a partition with OS X installed to it. So I had to type the following into Terminal to replace the EFI partition with a partition that's able to boot OS X:

Code:
[FONT=arial][COLOR=#333333]sudo -s
[/COLOR]diskutil list
[COLOR=#333333]newfs_hfs -v EFI /dev/disk'X's'X'                                                (Replace 'X' with drive/partition number)[/COLOR]
[COLOR=#333333]mkdir /Volumes/EFI[/COLOR]
[COLOR=#333333]mount_hfs /dev/disk'X's'X' /Volumes/EFI                                   (Replace 'X' with drive/partition number)[/COLOR]
[COLOR=#333333]cd /Volumes/'NameofInstallationDrive*/u[/COLOR][COLOR=#333333]*sr/standalone/i386[/COLOR]
[COLOR=#333333]fdisk -f boot0 -u -y /dev/rdisk'X'                                                  (Replace 'X' with drive number)[/COLOR]
[COLOR=#333333]dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk'X's'X'                                                (Replace 'X' with drive/partition number)[/COLOR]
[COLOR=#333333]cp boot /Volumes/EFI/[/COLOR]
[COLOR=#333333]fdisk -e /dev/rdisk'X'[/COLOR]
[COLOR=#333333]p[/COLOR]
[COLOR=#333333]f 'X'                                                                                             (Replace 'X' with EFI partition number)[/COLOR]
[COLOR=#333333]w[/COLOR]
[COLOR=#333333]y[/COLOR]
[COLOR=#333333]quit[/COLOR]
[/FONT]
This effectively makes the "EFI" partition created when OS X is installed into a bootable partition for OS X to use *THIS ONLY APPLIES TO HASWELL BASED ASUS BOARDS*


And there you go! All finished! That's exactly how I did it!

Help with the Audio, Bluetooth and iMessage would be greatly appreciated!

Congratulations and thanks for sharing! Audio though would be nice...

I think @samtimbaud (and @InsaneCultist) have this system running. Perhaps they have a solution?
Also Tonymac wrote a 'first' temporary guide http://www.tonymacx86.com/mavericks-desktop-guides/141353-haswell-e-x99-motherboard-temporary-guide-os-x-10-9-4-10-9-5-a.html
Perhaps that can help

If you find a solution please share! I have a similar build, only with a newer GTX 970. Do you think it will work?

May I ask what stuff you installed with Multibeast?

CrusaderArts: Are you using Yosemite or Mavericks? Cause you posted about success in a Yosemite topic 06:22 AM and then made this topic 04.32 PM, but this topic is about Mavericks. Just want to know!

CONGRATS on your build! A couple things:
  • If I'm not mistaken, the BT chipset on the X99-Deluxe is not a supported chipset. To get BT, just grab one of the compatible BT USB adapters from the Buyer's Guide list. WiFi should be working OoB
  • ASUS released an updated UEFI BIOS last week Wed or Thursday - v1004. The new BIOS fixes the issue of legacy boot & booting with GUID Partition. Now you don't have to jump through all those hoops to be able to boot from your HD (and without UniBeast key). It just "works" now!! :)

I tried your steps, but get stuck at an apple logo/ grey screen

Beginners questions: How/where do I get the VooDooTSCSync.kext (6-core) ?
I downloaded it here, Correct? http://forge.voodooprojects.org/p/voodootscsync/downloads/

If I type your sentence in terminal, I get an error, because on the unibeast USB, there is not folder "/USB/mach_kernel"

PLEASE HELP ANYONE?


Is audio working already? Did you check with the other guys?
A computer without audio... isn't useful to me. I have the exact same hardware (only GTX 970), so please respond, so I can start making the hackintosch finally

GTX 970 / GTX 980 are only supported in Yosemite builds. I had a H**L of a time trying to get it to work in Mavericks until one of the other super-users here clued me into the Yosemite only issue.

If you haven't already checked out this thread, lots of good info here:
