ASUS Sabertooth 990FX + AMD FX 8350 + NVIDIA GTX 970 Setup

Question

So I've been fighting this for awhile, and I've had really really really weird outcomes..

 

So first time installing, had to install with            /amd -v npci=x2000  to make the installer even work. Rebooted, got a boot0ss: Error - Okay whatever. Reinstall time

 

Second time installing, same arguments, switched bootloaders to the other one with UEFI and rebooted. Got to try booting into OSX! Had to do the backup of the kexts for the graphics and tada I was at my desktop, with no mouse at all. Crap. The mouse would be literally shut off right after selection of OSX to boot.

 

Fine, install again, back to original bootloader. We have boot! Except, I forgot to specify npci=x2000 again and so it hung. I reboot with the reset switch and then it won't boot anymore because it can't find the kernel.

 

Where am I going wrong here? I've followed all the guides? When I had no mouse I had keyboard, but I got to the part of the initial setup after creating the user to tell it if I want to send reports to Apple, and I can't get past that because Tab won't move me off the checkbox anymore there. I also know I have no networking because it couldn't grab a DHCP address...

 

I'm kind of ripping my hair out? I'm trying on a single hard drive for a quick and dirty setup so I can at least know how to get it functioning ONCE. What should I do or try?

 

I was browsing newegg for a new motherboard and processor and thinking of just jumping ship to Intel, but I can't find a motherboard with as many USB ports as this one has... I don't want to downgrade considering I just built this machine.

 

I hope I'm not just screwed for loading up OSX... it works great in vmware haha

This place is just mighty dead isn't it? Am I to believe there is just absolutely nothing that can be done and I'm basically screwed? Jeez. I've gone through the installation 10 times now at least. All I end up with is boot0ss: Error and when I boot from the Yosemite-Zone drive, I select my drive with OSX on it and I get that it can't find the kernel.

 

Nothing? Nobody? No help? I've found 4+ topics on this with NO replies at all...

Hi, same Mobo here, if you select Uefi Clover boot loader you must change options in boot 

Clover Options - PCI Devices unselect USB Ownership and USB Injection.

 

I installed with /amd npci=0x2000

So, using the above advice, I got into Yosemite, the install finished, I installed NVIDIA drivers and rebooted. Now it says a box about how I shutdown because of a problem and it can open my apps again, but it just sits there with a spinny wheel. I can't get past it. What do I do here? REALLY confused...

 

I can't use Chameleon to boot either because it says it can't find /System/Library/Kernels/kernel to boot my system. I tried typing mach_kernel etc etc and nothing works, so I believe I'm stuck with Clover.

Me too, installed with same flag, even with npci=0x3000 it works, but no idea on what flag to select, absolutely.so i try to install myself, complete installation, but no luck at reboot, unable to load any kind of kernel, Always " Can't find AMD, amd64, amdfx", absolutely nothing and no chance to fix it by terminal because it says it can't find /System/Library/Extension/Kernels/kernel, but it's there!!

WTF

Any idea on how to arrive at desktop?

hi,

if you use nvidia driver you must add to boot flag nvda_drv=1 kext-dev-mode=1 or edit your config.plist in clover configurator to do this.(you should find a guide how to use clover configurator)

 

Before installing the graphics card drivers yosemite worked well? why you install the nvidia drivers?

hi,

what steps do you follow? in the customize menu do you select the right flags? look here 

https://www.hackintosh.computer/37/yosemite-zone-amd-guide/

after installation you don´t need any more de flag /amd.

 

You can use the installer to use terminal after the language selection and copy a new kernel from terminal if you want.

Unfortunately i have no idea on what kernel to use and the terminal, with the command cp -f, does not let me copy the kernel i want.

After this, now i'm able to reach the desktop, after i installed enoch on hdd from another mac with the right flag, but the video is full of glitches, artifacts, i don't know how to explain :)

Maybe the problem is the kernel itself

Have no sound, no ethernet, no correct video, no reboot...and no right kernel i think, but it starts

My specs are:

AMD 1090T Phenom II

16gb Ram Corsair Geil

Gigabyte 990XA-UD3

I'm booting from pen drive, because i'm not able to boot from hdd at the moment...any suggestions?I would like to start from kernel

Maybe kernel, maybe graphics.

 

To ethernet install all in one solution https://www.hackintosh.zone/file/118-all-in-one-network-solution-wireless-ethernet/

Try to find what is your sound card and search for kexts and install, and the same for graphic card.

 

Do you install the 10.10.1 version of niresh? i think that /amd kernel is the last kernel. i suggest to try install over again and follow de guide from niresh step by step it works.

 

Cheers

    • 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
