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.

    • Oh, thank you but in the meantime I thought again and have installed High Sierra instead. It works just fine, put a camera, bluetooth, wifi, all working OK. I only have to solve a little problem when doing restart it freezes but after shutdown it comes up good! I have also Win7 on same mbr disk and I start with the installation usb but I think go over to EasyBCD to make a smoother boot. If your experienced I would appreciate very much any hints for helping me in this direction.

    • Hi, i am struggling with installation telling me that it needs less than one minute for eternity. in log it shows that "./postinstall: Using AMD Bronya Kernel" process is running, but 4 hours is too long for "Less than a minute" don't you think ;).    Please help me, i tried to install Mac OS on Intel and AMD processor PC, same problem.  
    • Hola, generalmente se postea en ingles.   Podrias dejar las especificaciones de tu tarjeta madre, por ejemplo: RAM PROCESADOR GPU ETC   Ademas de los componentes que tienes instalados... tengo una pregunta para ti.   Ya comprobaste la compatibilidad de tu ordenador con el sistema operativo?
