  1. Hello all, newbie here .... 1st off, i would like to thank everyone in the community working, testing, etc to fix problems, to enable all of us to enjoy the release of HS. It took me a couple of days to read up, break up my mini itx build, fix it up, install HS, re-try, re-try and again retry, until just a while ago, i have successfully managed to enable the bloody GTX 970 nvidia drivers on High Sierra. Rest of my HW like Ethernet & Audio worked for me out of the box with High Sierra installer by selecting the respective kexts during installation. My only BIG trouble was enabling the NVIDIA drivers, which took me quite a few clean installs to make it work. The issue i had was Problem 6 (as described in link below) - NVIDIA driver preference was auto changed to default OSX after every restart after the combo OSX update. https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/solving-nvidia-driver-install-loading-problems.161256/#Problem6 Final Solution was: Clover install, enable both EmuVariableUefi-64 & Install RC scripts on target volume, reboot and re-enable the nvidia drivers to 'stick' in the NVIDIA control panel. Initially upon countless searches here and anywhere online, i had tried the solution as i found this info here (for an 960GTX) but this did not work for me. Note: I did have those 2 kexts installed already (Lilu.kext & NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext) before i began the solution with Clover (Problem 6). Don't know if that helped too in the situation. My HW is: Asus P8H61-I LX R2.0 LGA1155 mini-itx (Intel H61 (B3) chipset) Intel i7-3770K 3.5GHz Ivy Bridge 16GB 1333 DDR3 (2x8kit) Gigabyte GTX 970 mini-itx 4GB GDDR5 PCI-Ex16 3.0 Standard Seagate SATA 1.5 TB 3.5" LAN: Realtek 8111F AUDIO: VIA VT1708S 8-ch HD audio Many thanks to everyone here. P.S. Sorry for asking but how do i attach my screen shot here? I cant find any way to do so, im using FF browser. (for the Mac HW Info screen shot)
  2. Yosemite 10.10 stuck at LPCB after successful installation Hello all, New member here at the zone. Congrats on all your work on the various versions of OSxes. It has been a pleasure going through all the various info. Also note that I've been using osxes in virtual boxes for some years, starting from Leopard to latest releases (but i was not registered here). Anyways, i opted to install Yosemite "locally" on a 2nd PC about 2 days ago. Did quite some reading, prepared everything (BIOS config, dmg, tools, boot flags, etc) based on my HW used. I successfully installed Yosemite 10.10 but I'm afraid it is stuck at a point where after searching here in zone and a lot of googling, i did not find any resolution (as of yet). Did trials & errors (basically set different flags) for a day, then i decided to post here for further information (if anyone can point me in any direction). Attached is a screen shot from the HD boot process where it stops (obviously). I did try to register and upload to the cloud (cl.ly) as suggested but upload does not work. Anyways, here's my HW info: Set up BIOS config as required by the zone guide. MB: Asus P8H61-I LX R2.0 mini-itx Chipset: Intel H61(B3) CPU: i7-3770K (used flag "-v npci=0x2000" for LGA 1155) RAM: 16GB DDR3 1333MHz VGA: NVIDIA GTX970 PCIe 3.0 x16 HD: 300GB SATA3 @ 3GB/s LAN: RealTek 8111F AUDIO: VIA VT1708S The KB and Mouse is a USB wireless Logitech K220 combo (both the kb + mouse are wireless via 1 usb) I don't know if this matters or not, but both worked fine during installation. After setting up all relevant flags (based on my CPU type) , i still cannot get passed the point shown in img: LPCB: family specific matching fails Any suggestions are appreciated. My apologies in advance for the long post, but i like to be thorough as possible. Thank you *EDIT* 16.2.2017 I installed the exact same dmg (10.10) on an older asus P6X58D-E mobo with an i7-930 (1st gen). The boot & installation worked without much hassle on this machine (i don't know why). I only needed the -v npci=0x2000 boot flag to boot and everything went well. However, on my previous request, i tried all different flags mentioned in the zone & any other guides, but i am still stuck at the same exact boot error, after install completes and i boot from the HD. Is there anyone (anywhere) who can help me in troubleshooting this further? i would really prefer to have Yosemite on the i7-3770k build, cause it would be much faster.. Thanks
