10.9.0 on Asus H97-Plus Semi-working


Dear all,


First of all thank you for all the guides and wonderful resources. This is a lot of work.


To start, here's my h/w spec:


- Asus H97-PLUS

- Intel i5 4460 (3.2GHz, 6MB Cache, LGA1150)

- 8GB Kingston RAM (1 stick)

- 2 x Seagate Barracuda 500GB SATA drives

- 1x Asus DVD Writer


That's it. I'm using onboard everything.


What I mean by "semi-working" is this:


- I managed to get it installed. The key thing for this board is PCIRootUID=1


- The bootloader is another business. Apparently Asus decided to drop GUID boot support since 8-series board

   so you have to activate EFI partition and install separately. Thank you Bob Roche on YouTube (



The main issues are:


- The onboard RTL8111GR networking chip is only running at 10Mb at half-duplex. It is better than nothing but I don't think this is right.

I'm using the Mieze driver installed via Mac Pois0n. What diagnostic info do I need to post here to move forward?


- Video: I'm using "-v GraphicsEnabler=Yes IntelAzulFB=10 PCIRootUID=1" at boot time but how do I know it is indeed using the onboard HD4600 with proper acceleration? Does it only work on DVI/HDMI ports as I'm currently connected on old VGA port only.


- Audio: Haven't bother with this yet


And there's all these other "little things" that I'm really not sure what to install to fix them. Things like:


- CPUPowerManagement: Do I just install the NullCPUPowerManagement?

- Missing BlueTooth Controller: Or somehting like that. At boot time it spends like a minute on this thing and move on.


And there's the confusion about the bootloaders. So far I gather there is:


- Chimera

- Chamelon

- Clover


I'm guessing the USB boot sticks made by niresh and tonymac are both Chameleon. Is that right? This matters because of this Asus 9-series board I must revert to installing the bootloader manually.


So for the next step any pointers on the NIC and the video would be much appreciated.

    • 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?
