Crosshair V Formula-Z How-To - Hackintosh Mavericks - Hackintosh Zone Jump to content

Question

Hey Guys!

 

     I've finally decided to give OS X a crack on my pc and Niresh is definitely the best way to go. As you can tell through my specs I have the Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z mobo, and I'm thrilled to see that someone wrote a custom UEFI bios for the motherboard to be able to install OS X! My question though is where can I find a tutorial on how to install OS X specifically on my mobo? I understand there's a custom bios for it but what settings do I run on the bios? Also, with the custom bios installed will I be able to have a Windows partition as well?

 

Thanks in advance for any insight at all!

There is a link to a tutorial on the download page of the Niresh Distro. Your pc should be compatible. Try installing it and youll find out. Yes, you will be able to use windows with the custom bios/with niresh installed.

Thank you! However, looking deeper into the custom bios thing: the custom bios file is a 29kb .aml file and in comparison if I go to asus's support page and download my current bios it's actually an 8mb .cap file. Does anybody know why this is? It can't possibly be right, I don't want to brick my mobo!!  :D Also could you please direct link me to the tutorial page just to make sure we're both on the same page?

 

A very grateful nub  :blink:

Everything went well! Successfully dual booted Mavericks with Windows 8.1 Enterprise. There's only two problems: No sound and I can't see any of my NTFS logical hard drives. All I can get for info on my Asus Realtek driver is it's "Supreme FX III". Do I need a certain kext in order to see my other drives?

 

 

-Edit: Everything works perfectly.

Please help, I am trying to get Mac on my Crosshair V Formula Z motherboard setup.  Have you been able to install any other version past Mavericks?  If so/not, what was the steps you took to install it (Distro, settings, ect.). I greatly appreciate any help you can give me as I have been trying on and off for the past year.

    • I previously installed yosemite on my pc. It worked well. But I can only boot the yosemite by cliking F10 advanced boot option and have to select my Hard drive. It didn/t boot automatically. So I just mounted the EFI folder and replaced the files from the original EFI I got from a link. Probelm started. So I planned to install Yosemite again. Keyboard not worked. So I boot back windows 10 and replace everything. But when I try to install yosemite again, sill I'm facing the probelm. Keyboard not working at selecting Yosemite zone screen. Keyboard is well functioning at BIOS screen, advanced boot option screen, even in my windows 10. But it freeze at the below screen. I tried everything, changed my Boot mode to UEFI and Legacy, reset CMOS by removing CMOS battery, restarted minimum 50 times, Changed my keyboard from USB to PS2, changed my USB keyboard port to every port. Please help me to solve this.   My System Config :   Intet i3-2120 CPU@3.30GHz 1 TB Hard drive 8 GB Ram 2GB GT610 graphic card Keyboard freeze at this screen.
