Hey guys,

I have roughly the same configuration as you guys, but I can't get this installer working for Yosemite at all.

For some reason I can't seem to get passed the bootload to the language settings screen. I've tried a lot of different combinations of setting boot flags but either the loading crashes or my computer just completely shuts off. Any ideas on how to get passed this?

PC Specs:

GeForce GTX 780
Intel Core i7-4930K Processor
Corsair Hydro Series High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler H60
Corsair Graphite Series Black 600T Mid-Tower Computer Case
TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Dual Band Wireless N900 PCI Express Adapter,2.4GHz 450Mbps/5Ghz 450Mbps, Include Low-profile Bracket
Crucial M500 960GB SATA 2.5-Inch 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter/spacer) Internal Solid State Drive CT960M500SSD1
Corsair Professional Series 760 Watt ATX/EPS Modular 80 PLUS Platinum Power Supply AX760
Crucial Ballistix Sport XT 32GB Kit (8GBx4) DDR3 1600 MT/s (PC3-12800) CL9 at 1.5V UDIMM 240-Pin Memory Modules BLS4C8G3D169DS3

Some variations of tried for Yosemite

-v npci=0x3000 cpus=1 -f
-v npci=0x3000 cpus=1
-v npci=0x3000
-v npci=0x2000

Just wanted to say thanks, your guide and links helped me set up pretty much the same system, just with a 760 gtx. Only the audio i didn't get working which gave me a nice excuse to finally buy a Behringer Xenyx 302USB which works flawlessly out of the box. Did you ever try an external esata drive by any chance? Did it work? Thanks again!

SUCCESS !!! Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4 - but no sound

I have a very similar system with a Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4 motherboard, Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 graphics card, 32 GB of RAM and a SSD for the hard drive.

I just realized tonight though that the sound is not configured for an output device. I didn't realize because I had been listening with Bluetooth headphones and it just worked. What do I need to do to enable the onboard ALC892 chip? I've tried using Multibeast 6.5.0 (1) and selecting the ALC892 driver, but that doesn't seem to work properly. Has anyone had success?

I'm running Mac OS X 10.9.5, if that matters.

Thanks, - M.

I got it working with an older version of multibeast...try the driver 1 version back... I still have to go in every few reboots and choose the output source... I was actually looking today at a USB audio output... Can pick one up for under 10 bucks... Might be easier and more predictible..

Maybe I will just buy some USB speakers instead. Any recommendations?

I was just looking at the "Sabrent AU-EMAC 2.1 Audio Sound Card Adapter"...comes with a USB extension cable too... Which is nice... I think it was like 8 bucks on Amazon... I did a search for "USB audio adapter mac" ...there are a few highly rated plug and play ones....

Please let me know if you go this route and how it goes...

Thanks!

I followed this guide and have everything working wonderfully. Thank you. I was thinking about upping from the 4930k to the 2680 V2. I know it's compatible with the board and that I'd have to adjust the VoodooTSCsync from 11 to 19, but does anyone know if there's more to it than that? I am on 10.10.4

thanks again,

jb

Did you ever get hung on "MAC Framework successfully initialized using 16384 buffer headers and 10240 cluster IO buffer headers?" I'm setting up a new rig with the GA-X79-UP4 (f7 BIOS), GTX 480 (as I tried to use my 780ti, but with it's compatibility issues I couldn't be sure if that was what was causing my install issues), and a Xeon E5 2680 v2 (10-core). Also, I have a modified mach_kernel file from this build guide (http://www.reduser.net/forum/showth...ide-Dual-Xeon-with-E5-2680v2-and-ASUS-Z9PE-D8) which is supposed to add support for the 10-core processor. I realize we have a lot of differences in our setups, but I'm trying to troubleshoot where this hang is coming from.
You ever get this worked out? On a solid system with the 4930k but looking to upgrade to the 2680 V2 and would like to know what challenges I may face prior to install.

Thanks!
