  1. Niresh developing WL Capitan or Sierra alternate distro If Niresh ever develops a distro of El Capitan or preferred Sierra, I would donate to Pay Pal. I have a machine I was able to use the distro of Mavericks on an older machine and liked the installer interface. I do not prefer iATKOS as they only take bitcoin and are stubborn about any other donation method, which basically cuts the conversation off for me. Niresh, if you are listening, please consider this. I can be contacted by this forum or by my email in the forum's server. I need a machine up to the current OS, so if anyone is listening I would paypal donate for a distro, preferably like Niresh's with the same menus. I was able to experiment with a build sheet and get it working on an older machine. I have a new machine that I would like to have up to Sierra. Anyone whom has a Distro, please reach out. Several of us would like to have a distro that is 10.12 or 10.11. I have a machine with these specs / and install details listed below, I use the boot flags listed and get to the "prohitbited logo." If I had a distro I was able to get into an older Niresh installer with these boot flags: -v -x npci=0x3000 PCIRootUID=0 and then into the installer, and then sucessfully install the distro. Sierra has things different that I cannot get past with these. I do not know enough about Clover to get past this in the Vanilla. Thank You, Nick Here are my hardware specs: SuperMicro X9DAi motherboard with two 6 core XEON E5 processors Nvidia / Apple Geforce 9800 with 512 mb that I pulled from my real Mac Pro (stock video card) it's the stock GeForce GT120 32 gb ram Legacy Bios setup I have also tried the UEFI Bios Unibeast method of OS X installer. I have tied other installers but the USB does not boot. MBR USB/ with a GUID / OSX USB format Apple GeForce 9800 (NVIDIA GT 120 with 512 V RAM) (from my older Mac Pro) I also can use a GeForce 210 if need be. I also have a Radeon R7 I have tried as well.

If any other Super Micro users or users have experience with this set up or if anyone knows where I am crashing or even has better setting recommendations, I'm listening. Thanks for the forum and your time, Nick.
  2. OSX Distro of El Capitan or Sierra Available I would love to get a download of a distro that has an installer with a GUI. Niresh's past Mavericks release worked for me, but I cannot get to a Vanilla Install of Sierra or El Capitan with bootflags. Thanks Much, Nick - I can make my email available as well.
  3. I have a SuperMIcro mid tower computer, dual 6 core XEON workstation. I compiled the Niresh Mavericks ISO to a bootable DVD installer, however I am not making it to the welcome apple installer screen. It made it once then stopped a couple minutes into the install. I boot in safe mode (-x) Here is a link to the sellers machine: http://www.supermicro.com/products/system/tower/7037/SYS-7037A-i.cfm . Dual socket R (LGA 2011) supports Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 - intel and E5-2600 v2 family†It's called the SYS-7037A Has two 6 core intel E 2600 XEON processors samsung 32 gb 1600 mhz ram - 16x 240-pin DDR3 DIMM sockets generic atapi DVD/CD Intel® C602 Chipset Intel® i350 Dual Port Gigabit Ethernet BIOS Type 64Mb SPI Flash EEPROM with AMI® BIOS video card - ATI Radeon R7260X (PCI Express 3) Can anyone tell me why I can see the bootloader and it get hung up before the welcome apple install screen? I have tried to boot in safe mode -x as well. Booting from an ISO file DVD I have followed the bios setting recommendations as well. After I select the Niresh bootloader a screen briefly flashes reading AMD ATOM Bios, I'm assuming it's for the video card?? Nick, mpmmedia@yahoo.com or contact@.com - thank you
