Hey guys!

Today I have successfully updated to version 10.11.2.!!!
The first time - in my case by default does not start Nvidia web driver. After upgrade, I should to patch (option 4 for me) again the kext AppleGraphics.

Also, I haven't worked ethernet (Intel - v219). I'm tired of waiting until all the accessories for the native WiFi Airports will come from China, because without Internet on my Hackintosh nothing to do)). I remembered that android has modem mode. But unfortunately - el capitan is not supported yet... http://joshuawise.com/horndis

But sooner be upset - https://github.com/jwise/HoRNDIS/issues/42
I tried the beta driver - but it failed for my phone Samsung. However, the phone of my wife (HTC) earned.

Here steps from github issue:
1.install HoRNDIS-rel7
(from http://joshuawise.com/horndis#available_versions)
2.reboot OSX
3.terminal with
「sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/HoRNDIS.kext」 and
「sudo rm -rf /Library/Extensions/HoRNDIS.kext」.
4. install HoRNDIS-rel8pre1.pkg
(from http://nyus.joshuawise.com/HoRNDIS-rel8pre1.pkg)
5.reboot OSX

After that, It is advisable to install null ethernet kext for App Store login. I hope, that this solution will help someone.

P.S. For now I have strange behaviour of RAM memory detection (I have 16gb ddr4 kingston savage). Some times it detect as 8gb(4+4) 3200Mhz or 16gb(8+8) 2100Mhz. It's weird for me.

Same thing happened to me after I installed HoRNDIS. I also lost all USB2.0 ports along with it. So I wouldn't recommend it for now. HoRNDIS is not officially supported in 10.11

I'll be attempting to use my native firewire -the StarTech.com 3 Port 2b 1a Low Profile 1394 PCI Express FireWire Card Adapter shortly so ill confirm if it works over the next few days.

Hi!

Today I bought new board and components for skylake.

The board is gigabyte z170 gaming 7 but I think it is not much different from yours :))

Can you give me quick install guide for this?

It is much different or the same? comparing to regular (LGA 1150 or 1155) installation?

I know there is new patches for USB and Ethernet port.

I bought Radeon Video card.

Sorry my question is so broad:)) and vague..and poor English..

I have the Gaming G1 / i7 6700k / gtx980ti

I am trying to install OSX 10.11.1
- I succeed in booting with Skylake fix from Pike R Alpha
- I built Meinze's Atheros2200 (the last one with e2400 support) with Xcode with El Captain SDK. but it's not working (no ethernet)
- I installed NVidia's driver and booted with nvda_drv = 1. Didn't work and tried with the fix at policies in Apple.Graphics.Policy.kext, and didn't work either.

I will try to do a clean install again, I may have messed up with some kexts.

<b>Gaming G1 / Skylake i7 6700k / GTX980ti</b> link http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=5478#ov

Dook0, everything should work bar the Intel chipset stuff with the Gaming G1. We're just gonna have to wait for a few fixes with El Capitan - maybe Q1 2016 :)

Make sure your BIOS settings are flashed to fw 6g, Disable IOAPIC Entry in BIOS, Enable XHCI Handoff.

To install USB El Cap boot use the non 'D' labelled USB ports (Intels!) on the back connector i.e. the top two ports below the PS2 keyboard connector or the white USB port in the middle or if you've attached the frontside USB3/2s to the motherboard then you should be able to use either of the left two ports.

Make sure you are using Mac ID 3,1 to install El Cap with Clover, once in, copy over the config.plist and basic kexts to boot to your install drive (e.g. fakesmc...), don't forget to use either Multicast or Cloverinstaller pkg to get clover boot loader onto your eventual boot drive

Post install: fix up your config.plist in your EFI mounted drive (d/l and use 'Clover Configurator') and ID it to 17,1 iMac 5K Retina. See pics.

Ensure you use the latest Meinze's Atheros2200 kext https://github.com/Mieze/AtherosE2200Ethernet/blob/master/README.md which includes full support for the Killer 2400 NICs and you can safely drop it in S/L/E with Kext Wizard/Utility or drop it in your EFI kexts folder.
Use AHCIportinjector kext and you can use Z170X-Gaming-7-USB3.0-Injection kext too for now inside your 10.11 EFI Kexts folder. *Im building a new injector for the G1 but its practically the same.

Theres a few posts around the internet regarding getting the Creative Audio working but only stereo fronts and sides work at the moment. I don't use it as Im using Firewire PCI Express card.

I also use a PCI Express inateck KTU3FR-502U card for more USB 3 ports (until the Intel 100 chipset gets supported)

Currently playing with a m.2 NVME SSD on Windows trying to format it. If you can boot to windows on a separate drive I recommend taking a look at a lot of Gigabytes utilities which you can program extra stuff into BIOS... could be useful!

NOTE: On first boot after install with nvidia GFX you should use nv_disable=1, get into El Cap, then download Nvidia web drivers, change your config plist back to nvda_drive=1 save it and reboot back in with full GFX support (download CUDA drivers too). You may still need to AVOID BLACK SCREEN BOOT PROBLEMS and Pikey quotes doing the following;-

backup then change AppleGraphicsControl.kext values;-

Found in:
/S*/L*/E*/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/C*/P*/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/C*/Info.plist

go down to configmap section and change value to None:

<key>ConfigMap</key>
<dict>
<key>Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6</key>
<string>none</string>
</dict>


Viola!

I'll build a guide once Ive finished doing mine... still experimenting.
