I've managed to hit a problem pretty quickly trying to do this. The installer launched from clover just stalls instantly, if I put it in verbose mode it seems to stop with the error 'RTC: Only Single Ram Bank (128 bytes)' anyone know what this means?

This is on an Asus x99 board with a 5820k and a Vega gpu.

Going to need a few more details. Is this a new install? Did you use unibeast? etc.

Win 10 Enterprise is just as viable since you can control everything including updates. Get on board.

Win10 is a loving disaster. I'm intrigued by this "controlling updates" because it took me weeks of hacking at my LTSB install to get it to stop trying to update itself.

Yeah this is a completely new install, I did use unibeast. Followed this guide for bios settings https://nickwoodhams.com/x99-hackin...-bios-settings/ as my board is the MATX version of that one.

I did try and do it the clean way from instructions on r/hackintosh but for some reason it kept crapping out creating the usb installer using the createinstallmedia command on my macbook so I didn't get much further than that.

Edit: I wonder if it's a power management thing, looking at this guys build he's using a custom flashed bios?

The USB Installer part should be the easiest of it all, honestly. You're just using a Mac to do normal Mac things.

In any case, it looks like people used a RampoageDev guide to install OS X because you need to do something specific for x99 builds. The site is down, but luckily there's Wayback Machine. It doesn't have photos for certain things, but, just from skimming, it looks like it might just be Disk Utility screenshots. https://web.archive.org/web/2015031...om/?page_id=144

This guy has some tips on what to do if things go a bit haywire anywhere and how he's personally fixed them. https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh...x99_hackintosh/

If this all works for you (if you manage to get the older OSes and install them fine) you should look up what people did with their X99 builds to upgrade to Cap, El Cap etc etc.

Should I start with El Cap? I've just done a clover install on a USB for High Sierra with the createinstallmedia command on my work machine. No idea why it was failing on my machine at home.

Eeek...man the X99 platform sounds rough.

Curious scanning through the bios shots didn't see any vt-d (virtualization) field. Is that in there anywhere, because enable always causes problems.

It looks like the guide there uses Yosemite and Mavericks. You should start there just because the guide will probably tell you what things need to be configured specifically for those OSes. Once you're good on those, you can just creep back up to High Sierra or Mojave - just do basic searches like "x99 hackintosh upgrade yosemite to el cap" or ball out and see if there's one for Sierra, High Sierra, or Mojave.

Yeah, good advice. You just have to *ahem* find the install.

It's there, it's just under some obscure advanced option that I can't remember. I have an Asus X99A2 and it took me quite a while to find the VT-D option.

So have you stripped everything from it from besides one ram stick and the discrete GPU (maybe you have one).

I didn't.

My setup:
Asus X99A-2
i7-6800K
32GB DDR4
(2x)RX560

When I installed bare-metal, I had everything working on 10.13 with unibeast and clover.

Eventually I went with Fedora (I'm an embedded Linux Engineer) and GPU passthrough in a KVM for MacOS if I need it. My geekbench scores where around a 2017 corei5 imac.

I found the vt-d option on my board but it was turned off because I ended up loading the optimised defaults. Probably doesn't help I'm using an Asus X99M WS board which means I'm probably the only person trying to do a hackintosh with it.

So it should be possible to do a clean install of 10.13, not sure if I'll try it tonight as I managed to catch a lovely cold and can't be bothered to gently caress around with stuff.

The KVM idea sounds cool but I don't think I have room for another gpu.

The HS USB I made yesterday does get much further than the unibeast one, but now it looks like setup loads but I can only see a small portion of the screen?

What are you using GPU wise? Sounds like some progress at least...

It's an RX Vega 64, which I was hoping would be supported without any messing around haha.

So does it have a iGPU on the MB you can use?

Nope Haswell-E doesn't come with an IGPU, but after searching around it looks like I need to inject another kext into the clover install to fix it. However I've got no clue how to do this or I'm just incredibly stupid.

So the idea is that you have to copy the specific kext into EFI\Clover\Kexts\Other but then I don't know how to get it to show up in clover configurator

Nothing else to do, clover should just load all the kexts in the "other" directory automatically.
