Best regards

Hey, i have this mobo. Now i have installed Yosemite, but i can't boot in. To install Yosemite boot in to your unibeast USB (in BIOS choose this one) with arguments -x -v. After this we must find solution with kernel problem. :)

Oh I'm sorry to here that. I'm currently waiting too see if it goes well for others haha.. I guess i'm a little scared for destroying my currently working hackintosh. Running Mavericks as for now :)

I have Yosemite working on my GA-Z77N-wifi with audio and network functioning normally. I did not change any of my BIOS settings from the working version of Mavericks I had and did a clean install on an SSD for Yosemite. My MultiBeast settings:

Yosemite install seemed to run fine on my GA-Z77N. Made the Unibeast usb installer , booted off that using F12. Ran the installer updating from Mavericks. When its all done it reboots and you get the can't find mach kernel. To be expected before applying Multibeast. Re-started F12 usb and selected the startup drive , booted up fine. Wi-fi working , no sound . Multibeast DSDT free + Realtec 892 for sound. Pull out the USB and its starting up fine in Yosemite.

Only one issue the USB ports are acting strange . I added Multibeast USB3-Universal and didn't seem to help. USB ports seem to be working at random. USB Mouse and keyboard are fine but when i plug in a stick or a printer it will work one time and then nothing the next.

I have this motherboard with a 3770K running on HD4000 graphics

Used same BIOS settings as for Mavericks

Had to switch to the upper HDMI port otherwise I lost picture when the installation started.

Used Multibeast with DSDT-free option and Mac Mini 6,2 and Realtek v1.2.2. Will post my complete Multibeast options later

Didn't install kext for the onboard audio as I'm using a cheap USB audio card from ebay(works without any kexts)

What I have found is that the USB 3.0 Kext in Multicast breaks Intel USB 3.0 ports. Also for the audio once you have install the ALC 892 you need to select your audio output in sound devices:

Yep you are right about the USB3 , I found it also played around with the USB2 ports. From other posts don't install the Multibeast
USB3 kext. If you have open up a terminal and type.

sudo rm -R /System/Library/Extensions/GenericUSBXHCI.kext/

Re-booted and the usb connections are behaving much better. Not sure about the USB3 , external hdd works ok on it but it still doesn't respond to a usb stick. USB 2 are all good.

Yep my USB3 is the same in system report, must be working ok. The usb stick works in the USB2 slots , might just be the stick. Doesn't matter everything else is good , happy with the early update.
