  1. Hello Malekbobra, You have Realtek® ALC892 codec on your motherboard, this chip is common and should be rather easy for you to get working. I would recommend downloading the Multicast for Yosemite and from within Multibeast install the driver, this is simple and easy to do. In case this does not work then try to find Voodoo and install that (note in some cases Voodoo for Maverics is some cases better)
  2. Hello SanduQi. You should have a sound system, at least you have the serial OK. But as you know the serial is not all it takes to get the Appstore and the other Apple connections working. The net fix worked for me, i.e. I had to place the files in their correct places my self (replace the originals) I downloaded the files from another thread in this web site and after that (note I had upgraded to 10.10.1 from Apple). There might be one another possibility, although I am not sure but that is to place the file FileNVRAM.dylib in /Extra/modules, you should be able to google and download this file and try it out. In previous versions of OS X this worked to enable iMessages.
  3. My guess is that you have some misconfiguration in System Preferances audio section, it looks as Woodoo has detected you ALC889 chip that works (I have AMD pc working with audio in Yosemite). I would check if audio level is turned down to zero or it audio output is routed to output having no speakers or headphones connected to.
  4. Did this card work with Mavericks 10.9.X ??? This is a card with twin GPU's right? this may be a problematic card to use in Mac OS X but it seems that some one got this working in Mavericks perhaps same solution works in Yosemite http://www.hackintoshosx.com/file/3695-nvidia-geforce-gtx-590/
  5. Try bootflag USBBusFix=Yes
  6. GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No, IGPEnabler=Yes together with the Device Properties string that you have.
  7. Your ethernet card should work, make sure that it is configured for "Using DHCP" in the System Preferences/Network if not configured like that, then change to Using DHCP and apply and reboot. Some ethernet cards need reboot to connect but not all.
  8. Your motherboard should work, but there are many possible combinations of bootflags, I would guess that you need one very important and that is GraphicsEnabler=No note where the letters are capitalised. Many bootflags are capitalised in strange patterns but must be so if they are going to work. After installation you may have a minor problem regarding bootloader installation but i am not quite sure about that, since your motherboard is not quite new. But, the ethernet and audio on your motherboard should not cause any problems.
  9. can you boot in safe mode? -x if so try that and then run Repair disk permission from diskutil nd see if problem is persistent.
  10. Asus is a little problematic in regard of booting of a Guid partition, so look at this http://noberoi.wordpress.com/2013/10/30/install-mac-os-x-mavericks-on-a-intel-pc-with-asus-maximus-vi-gene-_hacknt0sh_/#efiread about the boot loader attached to the EFI partition.
  11. Haswell is compatible since Apple is using Haswell CPU's in Apple's production, how ever your problem might be related to ASUS bios, some sources imply that Asus is a little crippled in regard of booting the hackintosh i.e. GUID partitions. But this can be overcome by using a boot loader attached to an EFI partition. But if you are using the Niresh prepared USB then i "think that the USB is MBR formatted but not sure, I did not check it I just used it without a problem booting up a AMD PC. If the system you have is the only system that you have then you are perhaps in a little more difficult situation but you could set the OS X up in a virtual machine and work on the boot loader on the USB from within the virtual machine. But there are also many different "bootflags" that you can also try before. Perhaps you find the solution here http://noberoi.wordpress.com/2013/10/30/install-mac-os-x-mavericks-on-a-intel-pc-with-asus-maximus-vi-gene-_hacknt0sh_/
  12. Go to "about this mac" and take a picture/screenshot of it, the serial should be there let us see the pic.
  13. Edit, since the Appstore, iMessage is not working even using the Smbios.plist from the old installation, then the "Fix" is not fully applied or something else is wrong. If yo have downloaded the "fix files" (a link is in other thread here in this site) then you just copy the files to the following directories you will see which files go in each directory. The directories are /System/LibraryFrameworks and /System/Library/StagedFrameworks/Safari. It is easy to get a valid serial number for the hackintosh pc, if you had a Smbios.plist in the old installation from Maverics, then you could have used that one, but if you don't have that one, then you can generate a new one with valid serial number with for instance the "Chameleon vizard" with Chameleon Vizard you can choose what mac computer your hackintosh should imply it is, "most often" it is best to chose mac model similar in specs to your hackintosh but the Mac Pro definition in Smbios.plist (Smbios.plist is in directory /Extra) most often works for most desktop systems but in some cases iMac definition gives somewhat better performance, and for laptops choose similar specced Macbook (Air,Pro) and for desktop using only graphics in the CPU then Mac Mini is most often similar, but this is a trial and error testing to find out what is best for each system.
  14. yes it works, but with a fix that should have been included in your installation, incase this has not installed than you can find the fix in another post here in this forum, but you need to find out where to put the files that correct or enable Appstore, iMessages. You also need to have a valid serial number of the "fake" mac/hackintosh.
  15. The update is not processor sensitive, if you have been running OS X before then you only have to install the update. Only if you install a complete setup of the operating system and erase/format (clean install) the partition of the hard drive with the operating system will erase the content and files you have in that partition. If you have a working OS X installed then it is in (almost all cases) easy to upgrade to newer version of OS X simply by installing over the existing install and preserve all software and data, but remember to have a backup of all data for security. -v boot flag has no practical meaning other than watching the loading of the operation system and enable identification of possible problems while booting so if all is in good shape then you can leave out the -v boot flag.
