Working Asus M5 A78L-M USB3 Board - AMD FX8350 CPU - Radion HD 7770

Recommended Posts

I've installed Yosemite 10.10.1 successfully on my rig :-

 

AMD FX8350 processor

ASUS M5 A78L-M USB 3 Motherboard

8 Gb DDR3 Ram

AMD Radion HD7770 Graphics card

 

You'll need

 

Niresh Yosemite Zone 10.10.1 DMG

TransMac (trial version)

8Gb USB stick

About 45 Mins

 

Optional downloads (you'll need these to get the Ethernet & Audio working)

 

All in one Audio Package

All in one Ethernet package (copy these 2 zip files on to a spare USB stick for later)

 

 

Create the bootable USB using TransMac (follow the Yosemite install guide)

 

I booted from USB using the following boot flags

 

/amd1 npci=0x2000 GraphicsEnabler=No

 

Format your HDD partition to mac os extended (journaled)

 

You can either customise the boot loader at this point and add the above boot flags (recommended) or just install and run the Chameleon Wizard (found in Finder - Applications) after the installation. You must still enter npci=0x2000 GraphiceEnabler=No once it reboots if you don't customize now. 

 

Once installation is complete the system reboots and you can select your location and keyboard but don't try and connect to the internet yet as the ethernet driver is not installed. Create an account and then let the Niresh configuration scripts run.

 

Once all the scripts have configured you should run the Chameleon Wizard now if you didn't customise the boot loader earlier

 

You can now install the Ethernet and sound packages. (just click on the zip file and then the package file)

Once the 2 packages have installed - reboot

 

You should now have ethernet / internet working :D

To get the sound working, open system preferences - sound, and make sure you have line out selected in the "play sound effects through" tab.

 

Thats it. You are good to go.

 

Thanks to Niresh for all his great work.

Enjoy

 

Jolly ;)

Hey!

Would it work on my rig? I have the same Motherboard (Asus M5A78L-MUSB3) and an AMD Processor (AMD Athlon II X4 640). I know that my graphics is compatible (NVidia GT 630)

    • 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?
