You are welcome, we are all there want to help you out.

Just a remind

The DSDT copy to your USB detail more way I can give you is..

If your USB name "USBA"

Then in your finder, Press keyboard "APPLE + SHIFT + GO" It will show you a text box

you must enter like this

/Volumes/USBA/Extra

or you can just enter /Vol + Press Keyboard "Tab" Key, it will auto help you input the full name if unknown, this way you can just type three word + "Tab" is done :thumbup:

This way will go to your USB stick's /Extra folder.

this is the different of the before I send you the How to install your DSDT tutorial. (This is for after installed OS X using.)

Glad to see this thread, I've been thinking of upgrading hardware on my machine, but I think I'm going to hold off another year or so and just upgrade my current box to Mavericks. Almost identical system specs to the original post.

Edit: Never mind, I got it to boot, but I had to do GraphicsEnabler=Yes and PCIRootUID=1, so completely the opposite of the original post. Installing now, let's see how it works.

For future reference: with GraphicsEnabler=No and PCIRootUID=0, when I boot from the USB stick, I get as far as the grey screen with the apple, see the progress wheel spin for a minute or so, then my monitor goes to sleep and the system appears to hang hard.

My current set-up is now GA-P55-USB3, i5 670, 8GB 1333 RAM, GTX 580

I'm using these settings in Multibeast:

This has everything working and has solved the wake from sleep issue I had.
Hope this might help someone else.

Hi all,

I have a GA-H55-USB3 with i5 661, using the onboard Intel graphics card for HDMI output. BIOS version is F11 so I download Dsdt file corresponding to my BIOS version from this site and put it in /Extra.

When trying to boot into install screen, it always stops in the screen as attached. Got no good luck after using -x , GraphicsEnabler=No. Is this issue related to AppleIntelCPUPowerManagment or Bluetooth kext (I don't have Bluetooth hardware installed)

The USB install disk was created to install Mavericks on my vaio notebook and I just replace the Dsdt file for giga motherboard. Is this a possible cause to fail the installation?

The kext in /Extra/Extension of USB install disk are
AHCI_3rdParty_SATA
AppleACPIPlatform
AppleACPIPS2Nub
ApplePS2Controler
EvOreboot
FakeSMC
GenericUSBXHCI
IONetworkingFamily
NullCPUPowerManagement

============================================================================================
I created a new install disk for installation of the desktop and use the dsdt file(F11) from this web site, still got the same problem. Then I edited the dsdt file w/ EDID info injected, but nothing changed. Do I need to buy a graphic card instead of using built-in one? Does anyone succeed in installing 10.9 w/ built-in graphic card ?

First I want to say thanks, this finally got me past my problems. Here is what I learned.

I have the Gigabyte GA-55-USB3 Rev.1 F8
Core i7
8GB RAM
BFG nVidia GTX 280

I used Unibeast to create a Yosemite boot disk WITH USB legacy support (the first time I used without and had no keyboard/mouse control at the setup screen).

Used boot switches:
-x GraphicsEnabler=Yes PCIRootUID=1
(Without the PCIRootUID=1 I would get the apple logo then it would go black and stop outputting video)

Finished install and then did the following configs in Multibeast:
UserDSDT - with my DSDT
Realtek ALC - ALC888 - Current (Rev 2 has has the 892 codec)
USB 3.0 - Universal by Zenith432
Realtek - lnx2Mac's RealtekRTL81xx v.0.0.90
TRIM Patch (if you are using an SSD)
Enable - Drivers & Bootloaders/Drivers/System/AppleRTC Patch for CMOS Reset (without this my BIOS settings kept getting reset every time I rebooted)
Under Customize > Boot Options I additionally added "GraphicsEnabler=Yes" and "PCI Root ID Fix"

Have this motherboard working well, except for USB 3.0. Non-hard drives in USB 3.0 work fine, but hard drives aren't recognized. Any ideas?
