ok. Buy a usb audio device just in case. spidf out works perfectly 100% of the time but regular audio out with the green audio jack does not. you will need a usb audio device most likelely! Glad you got it

Here is a full install guide using Unibeast / Clover to install OS X El Capitan 10.12 on your custom built Haswell E X99 Computer! I made this guide from using instructions gathered from the TonyMac forums. 10.12 appears to be the most solid version of MacOs for x99!

What's working:
Everything!!!! 100% on 10.12!!!!

* Update * 11/25/2016 I have ironed out any issues with OSX. I have 10.12.x installed. There are some issues though. Audio out is not reliable. It will work, but not reliable enough to not use USB audio as it seems to go out randomly. Also people are saying that usb 3.0 doesn't work, although I have no problems with it.

This is my final guide update for 10.12.x unless some major changes are made, in which case I will make a new guide.

The build:
GIGABYTE GA-X99-UD4 (Motherboard)
Intel Core i7 5820k Haswell E Processor (Cpu)
16GB Corsair Vengence DDR4 2400 RAM (Memory)
EVGA GTX 970 SSC 4GB (Graphics Card)
Sandisk Extreme ii 120GB SSD (El Capitan drive)
Samsung 840 Evo 120GB SSD (Windows Drive for dual boot)
(3) Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB (Hard Drives)
Old Maxtor 500gb Drive (still works)
Antec DF-85 (Computer Case)
EVGA SuperNOVA 750 B2 (Power Supply)
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo (Cpu Cooler)
Samsung CD / DVD-RW Burner With LightScribe (for when I rarely need a cd/dvd drive)

Requirements for this install:
An empty flash drive for Unibeast + an already working copy of OS X to make the drive.

A usb audio device. I have a Sabrent USB sound adapter, it's plug and play! Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IRVQ0F8/?tag=tonymacx86com-20

Pre installation requirements:
Update Bios to f22 from Gigabyte's Website (for x99 ud4 motherboard) @ http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=5123#bios

Go into bios, use "load optimized defaults"

Save.

Thats it.

Bios settings not required, but recommended for this install:
go into bios under frequency settings set "cpu boost 5820k to 4.3 ghz"
set memory settings xmp memory profile to "profile 1" or "profile 2" (depending on your memory speed)

this will overclock your cpu and memory, you may or may not want to do that. i reccommend it. computer definetly runs better with overclocking. It's automatic and the motherboard takes care of all the voltage settings. Use 4.3ghz for your cpu and profile 1 or profile 2 depending on the speed of your memory. I use profile 1 because I am using 2400mhz memory.

Pre Install - Step 1
Use the tonymacx86 method to install "Sierra" to a USB Flash Drive using Unibeast. You will need to make an account on tonymacx86 to be able to download Unibeast.

Here is the link to the guide to make the unibeast flash drive:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...ierra-on-any-supported-intel-based-pc.200564/

Install unibeast / El Capitan To flash Drive using the guide from the link I posted.

Pre Install - Step 2
After installing Unibeast / El capitan flash drive you will need to get "EFI Mount 3 and Clover Configurator".

Get Clover Configurator from http://mackie100projects.altervista.org/download-clover-configurator/

Get EFI Mount 3 from the Downloads section > Community Software @ Tonymacx86.com Link: http://www.tonymacx86.com/downloads.php?do=cat&id=10 (must be logged in to view this page)

Pre Install - Step 3
Copy EFI Mounter 3 / Clover Configurator to Your Applications. Then open the EFI partition from the unibeast drive (it should already be mounted).

(If it is not mounted open EFI Mounter 3 and mount the first selection in the menu. Then open the EFI partition from the unibeast drive)

Pre Install - Step 4
Download OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi from this link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/d74tdymovdxmlly/OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi?dl=0 (Source: https://nickwoodhams.com/x99-hackintosh-osxaptiofixdrv-allocaterelocblock-error-update/ )

Copy OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi to your /EFI/ClOVER/drivers64UEFI folder and remove OsXAptioFix2Drv.efi (This is the key to getting the unibeast drive to boot!)

- Thanks to Sunman for the info! https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/so-close-to-success-x99-ud4-5820k-x290-5770-sierra-boot.203495/ <---- reference link

Pre Install - Step 5
Open config.plist from the EFI > Clover folder on your Unibeast drive with Clover Configurator.

In the "Boot" Section of Clover Configurator Tick:

dart=0
nv_disable=1
npci=0x2000

in the custom flags box type
-v -f

Now your ready to install MacOS Sierra!

Install - Step 6
Reboot your computer and choose to boot from usb drive. It should boot into the MacOs installer screen!

Follow the guide from Tonymacx86 to complete the installation: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...ierra-on-any-supported-intel-based-pc.200564/

After 10.12 is installed continue to follow this guide.

Install - Step 7
Now that it's installed, boot once again from your Unibeast drive, but this time select your new MacOs Installation from the clover screen. You should not need any extra boot flags. If it does not boot try adding -f (if you have not added it before). Continue to set up the computer and finish the boot until you see the desktop. Remove your Unibeast drive.

Post Install - Step 8
Download & run Multibeast - Sierra from here: https://www.tonymacx86.com/resources/categories/tonymacx86-downloads.3/

Select These Options:
Quick Start > UEFI Boot Mode
Drivers > Disk > Intel Generic AHCI Sata
Misc > NullCPUPowerManagement
Misc > VoodooTSCSync > VooDooTSCSync 6 Core
USB > 3rd Party USB 3.0
Network > Intel > AppleIntelE1000e

Install Multibeast.

Post Install - Step 9
After installing Multibeast the EFI Partition for your MacOs install should automatically mount.

Copy OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi to your /EFI/ClOVER/drivers64UEFI folder and remove OsXAptioFix2Drv.efi. Also remove VBoxHfs-64.efi (we will be replacing this driver)

Remove VBoxHfs-32.efi from the /EFI/ClOVER/drivers32UEFI folder. This file might also be in /EFI/ClOVER/drivers32 folder (if there is one)

Open config.plist from the EFI > Clover folder on your system drive with Clover Configurator

Post Install - Step 10
In the "Boot" Section of Clover Configurator Tick:

dart=0
npci=0x2000

Then go down to "System Parameters" Section of Clover Configurator

In the drop down menu above "Inject Kexts" Select Yes (will be used to enable onboard sound via VoodooHDA.Kext)
Put a check mark in the box next to "NvidiaWeb" (will be used to enable Nvidia graphics card via web drivers)

Then go down to "Install Drivers" under the "Tools" Section of Clover Configurator (Bottom Left).

Make sure these drivers are installed (grey means installed):

Drivers UEFI 64 Bit (Bottom Left Menu): EmuVariableUefi
Extra Drivers (Bottom Right Menu): HFSPlus, HFSPlus UEFI, OsxFatBinaryDrv UEFI

Go to File > Save and save your config.plist. Close Clover Configurator.

Post Install - Step 11
Download VoodooHDA https://sourceforge.net/projects/voodoohda/files/?source=navbar (get the newest one currently 2.8.9)

Copy VoodooHDA.Kext to EFI > Clover > Kexts > Other

Delete all other folders inside "Kexts" folder, except the "Other" folder

Now you will have enabled onboard sound!

Note: Onboard sound works via VoodooHDA.kext (2.8.9 only as of right now) but it has a tendency to randomly go out. Due to this keep using your USB Audio adapter, and only use VoodooHDA for spdif out from your computer. This method will work 100% of the time, otherwise your taking your chances. It's pretty much guaranteed audio will go out of you ever install certain Adobe apps. This goes for any onboard audio enabling method. I have tried all of the method's extensively.

Just for complete reference, There are 2 other methods I know of to enable sound on this system. I don't reccommend using these methods, but you are free to try them. Here are the links:

Method 1 (Toleda's Method):
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/audio-realtek-alc-applehda-guide.143757/ (Use x99 section)

Method 2 (AppleALC Kext):
https://www.******.com/r/hackintosh/comments/4e23w6/guide_native_audio_with_clover_applealckext/

I have tried both of these methods and prefer VoodooHDA by far as it's the most stable. I have had audio go out completely (no spdif out) with both methods. I also have had kernel panics with these, and many crashes. Had to reinstall MacOs many times before I came to the conclusion VoodooHDA is the best method.

Post Install - Step 12
Download and install NVidia Web Drivers from: http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/107807/en-us

Reboot

Post Install - Step 13
Go to Applications > Utilities > Terminal enter 'sudo trimforce enable' (without the ''s) this will enable Trim if using an SSD Drive (Highly recommended, SSD only)

System will reboot automatically.

Congratulations you now have a fully working x99 Hackintosh running 10.12.x!

Optional Install - Dual Boot with Windows
In order to dual boot with windows 10 you will need to open up your config.plist file again.

Open EFI Mounter 3 and mount the first selection in the menu. Then open the EFI partition and open config.plist from the Clover folder with Clover Configurator.

  • If windows was installed using UEFI Mode:

In the "Boot" Section of Clover Configurator the menu on the top right should say "PBR"

Go down to "Install Drivers" under the "Tools" Section of Clover Configurator (Bottom Left).

Make sure these drivers are installed (grey means installed):

Extra Drivers (Bottom Right Menu): NTFS UEFI

Go to File > Save and save your config.plist. Close Clover Configurator.

  • If it doesn't boot from clover, you have installed windows without UEFI:

In the "Boot" Section of Clover Configurator change the "Legacy" menu on the top right to "LegacyBiosDefault" (it should say PBR by default)

Then go down to "Install Drivers" under the "Tools" Section of Clover Configurator (Bottom Left).

Make sure these drivers are installed (grey means installed):

Extra Drivers (Bottom Right Menu): NTFS

Go to File > Save and save your config.plist. Close Clover Configurator.

You should now be able to dual boot with Windows from the Clover Menu!

Disable Gatekeeper In MacOs Sierra

The Gatekeeper settings can be found in System Preferences > Security & Privacy > General. The Gatekeeper options are located beneath “All apps downloaded from:” with the choice of “Anywhere” missing.

Thankfully, the “Anywhere” setting can be restored to Gatekeeper in Sierra with a Terminal command. First, quit System Preferences if it’s open and then open a new Terminal window. Enter the following command, followed by your admin password when prompted:

sudo spctl --master-disable

Now, relaunch System Preferences and head back to the Gatekeeper settings. You’ll now see that “Anywhere” has been restored. Click the padlock in the lower-left corner to enter your password and make changes, then select “Anywhere” from the list of Gatekeeper options. The security feature will no longer bug you about apps from unidentified developers.

How To Optimize OS X!
Go to system Preferences > Mission Control, untick all check boxes. turn dashboard off (may require log out / log back in)

Go to system preferences > Security & Privacy, Under General > untick all check boxes (may require clicking lock at bottom left of box), fill in bubble on allow apps downloaded from anywhere (now system boots to desktop and auto logs in without needing password) Under Privacy tab > Untick enable location services

Go To system preferences > spotlight, untick all check boxes in search results tab, then go to privacy tab, drag all drives into that tab. This will turn spotlight off, so you can't search, but will make computer faster. If you want to keep search function, don't do this, but if you want faster computer. Turn it all off!

Go to system preferences > notifications, untick everything, then go to notification panel on the top right of screen, and click the grey box at the bottom. Drag any apps with the red coicon next to them to the green icon section. That will turn off all notifications for apps (speeds up computer a bit)

Go To System Preferences > Energy Saver, turn display off after: Never (drag bar all the way to right) untick all check boxes, especially untick put hard drives to sleep

Go to System Preferences > Bluetooth, turn bluetooth off (unless you need it then turn bluetooth on)

Go to System Preferences > App Store, untick automatically check for updates

Go to System Preferences > Siri, untick Enable Siri

Thats about the extent of it,
Good luck!!!!

Ok! Glad it's working! Should not have memory error though. Make sure you recheck your Clover Folder make sure it has all the files! Good luck!

Probably not since its a completely different motherboard, but you can try it!

Hi Folks. Just for the record, my rig (6900k+GA X99 UD5+GTX980) is now fully functional (10.12.1) with onboard sound e USB3.

Sound: Multibeast 9.0.1 Realtek 1150 audio patch (thanks Toleda) and AppleHDA patched (plus HDAEnabler1.kext in 10.12 Clover folder);
USB3: port limit removal patch + USBInjectall-kexts (thanks to Rehabman) and X99_Injector USB 3.kext Clover Kexts.

Thanks (and credit) to Tony, Toleda, Rehabman and MMano.

Hey so after many issues got my build to work using this guide following almost to the t (had to change a few things since I used 10.12.1. one being the terminal command that made the installer bootable as well as deleting one of the kexts that has 10.11 in the name) got it to boot up and haven't had any major issues yet!

Hi guys,
I have the same hardware configuration like @ancas (except gpu ... I run the evga gtx 970). I followed this guide but i get the same problem/error like @ancas. This other guide also looks very helpful, but my knowledge about hackintosh (especially kernel-patching etc.) isn´t that good, so I don´t know really what to do. The biggest difference to the configuration in this guide is the 6800k cpu. I think its the main problem. For the installation I use the latest version of Sierra downloaded from the appStore.

Sorry for my poor english, but I would be very happy if you could help me.

I have had absolutely no luck trying to get the bios screen to appear....no beep(s)...no screen logo...
scoured the internet with all the tricks to reset the CMOS, reset the BIOS, etc....
I am assuming this board has a built in speaker for the BIOS beeps...can anyone confirm?
Even replaced the mobo with a second board.
I am using a i7-6950x processor if that makes a difference. Gigabyte says it is compatible with this processor
