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

built in speaker needs to be hooked up to the motherboard. it should have came in the box. small round black speaker about the size of a dime but thicker.

Also sometimes certain monitors don't display bios screen. I recently bought 2 4k monitors. the 1st of which does not show my bios screen, but the 2nd one does. If you don't see the bios, just keep mashing delete (not backspace) as soon as you press the power button on your computer, and hopefully it takes you directly to the bios. if not then there may be another problem like incompatible processor. Even though the 6950x is supposedly compatible, if you didn't update the bios to the compatible version before adding the cpu that could explain why it isn't displaying the bios. Good luck!

I have...
2 Asus VS Series VS247H-P Black 23.6" Monitors
1 Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 Graphics Card
They worked fine on my Intel mobo...
Also I have not found a small round black speaker in the spare parts that came with the mobo...
The speaker is mounted on the F_PANEL (orange). The G Connector clearly shows where the 4 pin connector goes.
I ordered a speaker here...

I dont even see a place in on the mobo in the manual to install a small speaker...

do you have another graphics card you can try? what is your motherboard?

After installing the mobo speaker I have a "CPU Error".
Contacted Gigabyte again and they are blaming the second mobo.
I have a third mobo coming...either I am a motherboard killer or Gigabyte is having problems with this board.

I'd like to say thanks for the walk through! I haven't had a working Hackintosh since switching to X-99 (been a while, I got it on launch week). Now that all the bugs are worked out of clover with multiple pci-e devices your walkthrough went perfectly.

My USB settings after lots of struggle:
  • For further info check the actual USB fixing guides, I know nothing and I didn't inject a USB SSDT so things at this point can still be wrong.
  • Rename EHC1, EHC2 and XHC on DSDT as per guide info (I use DSDT)
  • Kexts needed: FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext – FakePCIID.kext – USBInjectAll.kext – XHCI-x99-injector.kext
  • Boot with flag -uia_exclude_hs (This is what made it all work).
  • NO increase ports limit patch on clover. (Ideal scenario since it respects port limits)
  • Latest clover and bios (just in case)
At this point, someone with a bit of time can boot with this settings and start creating the USB SSDT for 100% security that things will run smoothly.

Thanks heaps Malki. Used this guide to build my first ever hackintosh and have it working nice and smoothly at 4.3ghz. Pretty much the same build as yourself. Have been following your last few guides really helped me with the purchasing part as well. Did the latest update to 10.12.3 today no issue. Thanks once again for this guide
