[Solved] -x Flag necessary on Intel Xeon 1240v2 + GTX 670 + GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UP5 TH

Hey Guys,

i keep it short for you:
My system mentioned above is only booting to the desktop when using the flag -x
Intel Xeon 1240v2 + GTX 670 + GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UP5 TH
When booting with only -v it gets stuck @
mcx_swapon Success
AppleIntelE100e: Link is Up....
ConsiderRebuildOfPrelinkedKernell com.apple.kext.OSvKernDSPlib triggered rebuild

GraphicsEnabler=No is already a Key in the right plist.

I used Multibeast 5.2.1 with the recommended Setting from here:
http://www.tonymacx86.com/golden-bu...-ga-z77x-up5-th-gtx-650-ti-mountain-lion.html
and later on a fresh install.

I always repaired permissions.

Thanks a lot for your help!

Look in the BIOS for VT-d, try disabling it. This CPU looks very interesting to me. I hope that works!!

Happy new year!
Dude, you got to be kidding me, it WORKS!
Thank you so much!
Disabled vt-d in Bios!

Don't get me wrong but i love you!

Yes the Xeon 1240v2 is awesome if you don't want to use the HD4000 (it has none) and you don't want to overclock.
Awesome CPU for the price. Benchmarks almost like the i7 3770. Cinebench: 7.35

And Xeon sounds so much more awesome then an i7 ;)

The ASUS GTX670-DC2 is so quiet, you really can not hear it.

HOW is you 660TI? Does it not have those sleep issues?
Thats why i bought the GTX 670.

Thanks again and much love!

No problem! Great to hear it works, can you post a Geekbench 64bit score or Heavenmark, thanks!! Happy New Year to you too!

The 660Ti is good for me, my Hack stays on 24/7, I use it as an iTunes Media Server

Which Settings in Heaven Mark? Or just hit Benchmark?

I only have the 32-Bit Version of Geekbench.
Just hit benchmark in Heavenmark, 32-Bit will work in Geekbench, 64-bit scores are a little higher normally

Edit:

That's a pretty good score in heaven mark!! Take a screen shot of your scores: press Command+Shift+4, then drag a box around what you want, click left mouse button.

Geekbench Scores updated in my last post.

Maybe Heaven Bench is so high because of the bad resolution?!

Geekbench is good, around the same as an i7 3770, but without the on-board graphics, which is what I like. Just noticed the resolution, yeah, that helped the score a little bit!! What type of memory are you using?

Since 1333 oder 1600 does not matter on discrete GFX i choose the cheep 1333mhz:
CORSAIR 8GB DDR3-RAM-1333MHZ
CMV8GX3M1A1333C9

Other:
- Samsung 840 SSD, 500GB
- WD 2TB HDD (WD20EARX)
