Unsure about installation with this specific board

Question

Hello everyone,

 

I have searched a bit and in some outdated posts, some people say the hardware I have is incompatible. I have searched for recent threads and updates, but haven't been able to see if Niresh's distro (Mavericks) works with what I have. I saw some other motherboards that have the same name, but they're not the LX version. They say they're "pretty similar", but I'm not sure about how similar they are. I'm posting from my Chromebook at the moment, so I'll wait for some answers before I proceed any further. I mean, I know they're compatible for sure (well, from the guide) but I'm not sure about the settings I should use given the chipset.

 

Here's my PC (I have Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu at the moment)

(I actually have 16Gb of ram, but for some reason it doesn't show of on PC Wizard).

 

I have an empty hard drive for it, got the USB going and all that. The part that I'm not sure and that I don't want to mess up is after the installation. I've seen some videos and guides but it seems to be hardware specific so maybe you guilds could give me a hand. That's pretty much where I'm at. All the rest I could do by myself as it was pretty obvious. 

 

Thanks in advance for any advice and help.

Still trying to work it out. Problems I got :

 

. Stuck on greyscreen FIXED

. Wrong resolution FIXED

. Doesn't support dual screen (hdmi either) FIXED

. No mouse support (USB) FIXED

. Strange flickering when an animation is displayed 

. Freezes after less than a minute FIXED (Kernell Panic : https://www.hackintosh.zone/apple/articles/fix-no-hpets-available-kernel-extension-in-backtrace-comappledriverappleintelcpupowermanagement/). HAPPENS AGAIN, CPU 0.

. No sound

 

I'm using one screen for now, will try to fix things with dual boot if I ever get it to work. I'll keep trying different things in the customize menu, I guess. If anyone has any idea of why these things are happening or how to fix some of my problems, please, let me know.

 

UPDATE : Going for a reinstall with Clover. Going to follow a thread by some guy with similar specs. Wish me luck.

 

**Managed to get everything working flawlessly by choosing clover as the bootstrap and checking in the right stuff.HD, dual screen, sound, video card recognized, pretty much everything. Now, I gotta make sure Final cut pro x works properly and I will be done with this. Quite a challenge.

 

If you have the same specs as me and are having a hard time, let me know and I'll try to help.

    • Hi guys, I installed the Hackintosh Sierra Zone image and most things work except my graphics. It detects as AMD R9 290X when I use FakeID 0x67B01002 on boot, however I only get 7MB of VRAM with no QE. My screen also tears as well. Hope someone can help me - Intel Core i5 2500K - AMD R9 290X 4GB - ASUS P8Z77-V LX
    • 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?
