Yes, Skylake Systems need that as well as others like Haswells with NVRAM issues(no NVRAM).
Hi Gigamaxx - I have an issue with my z170x UD5 TH, it just cycles the halfway through on the apple logo progress bar at start up, is that the same issue as you had

Hi all,

I have tried again this morning to resolve this and still to no avail, with the Nvidia web option edit in it just will not get to the login screen.

All I get is the apple logo - after booting halfway it goes black and then the machine restarts. Has anyone faced a similar issue?




Hello all,

I would love a little of your time and assistance

My kit
Gigabyte z170x UD5 TH
Nvidia 980 Ti water cooled
i7 6700k Water cooled
64GB Ram Corsair (16gb x 4) DDR 4
Broadcom wifi card
SanDisk 480gb SSD
Mac Definition 17.1



Issue
I have followed the guide and I have installed Sierra. My ram is recognised and also the wifi card as it ethernet, I haven't tested audio.

I cannot for the life of me get the Nvidia card to work, and I have tried all sorts the latest a fresh build using unibeast to build the USB key and Multibeast with 1150, 100 audio and Ethernet option selected, with UEFI.

I have made the changes to the config.plist to use the webdrivers but it just reboots on start up about half way through the loading bar. It goes on in a cycle.

I can boot from USB and get back into Sierra as I am now but the NVIDIA drivers will just not seemingly take.

I have attached two files one from the boot loading, and the second from the about this Mac panel where you can see the card is not recognised as an NVIDIA just generic 7mb card.

I have tried many things from switches to fixes - one which interested me but I can't seem to get to work was the mod info.plist fix as I don't seem to be able to enable root using the old directory services way of doing it.

Followed standard instructions on the setting of bios three or 4 times.

So if you have any thoughts and before I impale myself on a Wifi aerial I would love to hear them. Even if it is that I am an idiot.

Have you tried igpu as primary display in board bios? It is necessary for newer AMD cards, it may also apply to Nvidia, not sure but it's worth a try. Sierra wants to run as integrated graphics on hackintosh.

Hi yep I did this morning, but it still did the same :(

"fdisk: could not open MBR file boot0: No such file or directory"

Is there a way to download El Capitan now that Sierra has been released? I can't find it on mac. I can find "updates" through wikipedia but does that count as a full version of the OS?

Basically, I'm still running Mountain Lion and it won't let me download Sierra from the app store.
