1: This is the Audio card You have:

(Realtek® ALC892 codec

High Definition Audio

2/4/5.1/7.1-channel

* To configure 7.1-channel Audio driver.

Support for S/PDIF Out)

2: about the graphic card:

You bought a Gtx 660 videocard and You want full Graphics Right?

Check in the download area of this web site for the drivers of that Videocard.if you dont find them i can Look for them for You.

And the way to install drivers or Kexts as we call in the Hackintosh community.They are alot of Programs

Or Kexts intallers out there. Since You are a beginner i recommend you to use KEXT UTILITY.

You open the programs and just drop the kexts inside the program and it install the drivers

Automatic.

For Audio you can download Multibeast from the download area.open it and dont select nuthing just go to where it

Drivers and look for the one that say ALC892 ,and just install that because everything is working fine

All you need is Audio.

Thanks a lot for your respond, I really appreciate it.

 

I've been searching on this download center but I couldn't find anything, I found one link that might be for my use:

https://www.hackintosh.zone/file/26-nvidia-gt-630/

 

Is that correct? Or is that ONLY for 630 since i have an 660?

In that case, could you please as you said please help find the driver so I can get my graphic card running. I know about the kext installer, I have the pre-installed Kext Wizard in Programs and it seems to work :)

    • Hey guys, I'm looking into dual booting OSX Sierra or High Sierra on my ASUS Zenbook Pro UX501V. I use a lot of mac only software like sketch at uni and it would make my life a lot easier to just be able to boot into it instead of going to campus to use one of their Mac's. I'm currently running windows 10 and would prefer to not have to lose all my files or reinstall windows 10, however if this is unavoidable I would consider it. Specs are Processor    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2592 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
      GPU    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960m 4gb DDR5
      RAM    12GB DDR4
      BIOS Version/Date    American Megatrends Inc. N501VW.300, 9/05/2016
      BIOS Mode    UEFI Does anyone know of any guides? Or has done this before? Even a link to point me on my way. Looked into the clover bootloader and I'm under the impression that's the route I'll have to take. Thanks for any help you may have      
    • Hi everyone. Here are my specs MOBO :Gigabyte Z68 XP UD3 (1155) GPU : HD 6870 1gb CPU Intel i7 2600k (1155) 60gb SATA SSD   MOBO is using legacy Bios. This machine has served me well for years. I tripped a circuit breaker a few weeks ago and now it's stuck in a boot loop. I have setup a new bootable USB to reinstall but for some reason the boot loop is happening when I startup from this as well. I can manage to get to the desktop using the safe mode boot flag (-x) but after a few moments, the desktop freezes and the computer reboots. I used the 10.10.1 disc image to create the new USB stick I am not sure if this could be causing the boot problem in the USB. Should I have used the 10.10.0? At first I suspected a hardware issue but I left the computer on for two days at in the bios screen and it stayed on just fine. Hoping someone can give me a hand figuring out which boot flags can get me going again or how I can reinstall the OS. I really need to get past the freeze/reboot cycle I am in. I am almost ready to nuke this thing and install windows
    • i also have this problem if you will finde the solution please inform me right away and thank you
    • I built a Hackintosh on a GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P in 2010, and upgraded it to Sierra about 4 months ago. It's been working great until a few days ago.  The clock now is losing time, while the computer is on and running. I've been working on the computer all morning, and have had to bump it forward to the current time it 3-4x. Right now it says 9:40am, but it's really 9:47am.  I have "Set time and date automatically" set in settings and "Apple Americas/U.S. (time.apple.com.)" selected on the drop down. Deselecting it, and selecting it again, brings the clock back to the current time.  Is this a hardware issue or a software issue? Do I have to replace the CR2032 on the motherboard? If so - why? The computer is on, and running, why would it need that battery to maintain the time?
