@mimixa , perfect and excellent job!
Apart from the impressive system results, how did you manage to properly install the web driver? Just for all others yet wandering around in the dark
@mimixa I have the same cpu and a few questions do you get C1-C3 states in appleIntelinfo.kext?
My second question is the cpu overclocked cos I don't get more then 36.000 in geekbench on HS
Bios Standard Version 3502.
For the video here
@mimixa Are your bios settings for cpu especially, the same as in the guide ? I know it's a different mobo but it should not be that different .
Also hyper threading is on or off?
Is here anyone who can test and confirm that USB-C in asus x99 Deluxe II works with no problems with this guide ?
I have nothing to test it right now but want to invest in wacom cintiq pro 16 and connect it through usbc, before I do it I would like to hear that usbC is working fine, thanks
The machine runs Sierra fine (using @kgb outstanding Sierra guide),but I'm having trouble with the WindowServer restart problem, on 10.13 install. My machine:
ASUS X-99-A II
2xEVGA Maxwell Titan X
1TB Crucial SSD (Sierra's installed here)
1TB Samsung 960 EVO M.2 SSD (this is the eventual home of 10.13)
(a bunch of other disks in a ZFS pool: these aren't the problem, because I shut them all off in the BIOS)
OSXWIFI Bluetooth/802.11 card
I've got the installer on a USB drive, in the 3.1 slot on the motherboard, and it loads a bunch of stuff (via -v), but then gets to the WindowServer restart thing, and just hangs. I'm not 100% sure which version of High Sierra this is trying to install, and I'm not 100% sure what the problem is. I'm OK with waiting for things to get better, but I sort of wanted to get HS on this box this weekend.
Note that I'm stalled out well before trying to install the nVidia web drivers, mind.
OK, actually, I removed one of the Titans, and I was able to get past the hang and start installing the OS onto the Samsung drive. Whoo hoo! Maybe it's time to upgrade from the 2xTitans, as I'm no longer doing heavy duty CUDA development.
Done. Now I just need a stable build of ZFS and I'm good. Also, will need to upgrade to the nVidia web drivers, but for now, I'm good.
Yes I assume the same. Could it be my mobo, an MSI X99S SLI Krait Edition?? I am running out of ideas.
Yes, double checked.
I was previously using your EFI-X99-10.13-Final-Release-031017.zip, now I'm trying EFI-X99-10.13-SU-Release-061017.zip. Removed the NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext_1.1.3.zip kext from USB and SSD now.
Everytime I reboot and try this from scratch I seem to get different results... it makes me think it's the mobo or my setup...
PLEASE NOTE: I'm on a MacBook Pro with El Capitan. When I format my SSD with "Disk Utility" it's ofc not APFS. Should I be doing:
"diskutil apfs convert /dev/diskX"
From the USB Installer BEFORE attempting to install High Sierra on my SSD? Thanks.
If there are any HW recommendations for me to make (minimal if possible) to get a desktop High Sierra install I'm open to recommendations.
