Hi, first of all I want to apologize, I finished this build about two years ago, but never finished writing the guide. Today, I needed to update to Sierra, and I felt that I was in debt with this community because tonymacx86 and its incredible, awesome community who helped me to build my two color grading stations and this build.

This is actually my second build, first one was a x99 color grading workstation. The problem is it took me so long to finally make it fully working, that I can barely remember all the steps I made.

This build was intended to be used with Touch Screen as an input device so no need of a keyboard or mouse (although they are needed during installation and configuration ).
It was vital minimizing the the components so it can be used with a nanoATX PSU (only 250W), which allows a reduction in the weight so it can be easily transported. So that's the reason of using the integrated GPU.
Same reason because I didn't OC, to keep the energy consumption to the minimum possible, so it can be powered with batteries. The batteries works more as a UPS thing; the system can not only boot on battery power, but can keep running for some time.

Important disclaimer: I'm not an experienced builder but I have some computer background and some patience. Also, keep in mind that I am not engineer, electrician or programmer or anything like that. Everything in this build was made using trial and error, and some sparks were seen during the process.

Touch Screen is possible through Touch-Base software, it provides touch screen compatibility between mac osx and certain displays: https://touch-base.com/

Installation notes
I followed this guide step by step, I don't think I can explain it better than Tmpdmp so here is the link with the guide:

Post Install
Only thing that I did different is to add two more settings in MultiBeast configuration and looked like this:
MultiBeast Settings


Very important:
- I did all the process with the m.2 NMVE Drive disconnected. When I had my system up and running and completed the section “Getting the NVMe to work”, I connected the drive to the system. It was impossible to get to the install screen with the drive connected.
- As I intended to use this system with the built in graphics, after the installation I had to do this:

What Does Work
Everything so far, touch screen, sound, Airdrop

What doesn't work
Further test needs to be done

Did you have to do anything special to get the BMD Decklink card to show up? My rig is 10.13.6 based on Z270 Chipset with an i7-7700k, but I can't seem to get the system to recognize the card.

Hi vitoludo, thanks for responding. Yes, I've installed the latest Desktop Video Software, but it has not helped. I'm going to try switching slots next. BTW, your rig looks pretty cool.

Hi @bshermis , did you try to connect the card in other PCI Express slot?

That's my next attempt. I only have Three x16 slots on this MoBo. Currently I have GTX 980ti Graphics in Slot #1 and Thunderbolt3 AIC in Slot #3. Those two work as is. I'm going to try switching the TB3 Card with the BMD Card.
