Hello all. I read many guides on how to build a system. I ordered all my parts after careful selection from what I read around to make sure my hardware is compatible build. So First I will list my hardware:
-Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3 LGA1155 ATX Motherboard Intel Z68 : Various sources recommend this board if used with a compatible graphics card.
-Intel Core i7-2600K 3.40 GHz Quad-Core Unlocked CPU
-Corsair Dominator GT CMT16GX3M4X2133C9 16GB 4x4GB DDR3 RAM
-SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCIE Graphics card: I see this for sale and listed as a osx86 compatible card. I also read that some users report that it works oob.
-SATA 1 TB HD
-SATA dvd drive
Ok so at first I could boot up to all versions of osx86 10.7.x install. But once setup is over and the system reboots. I can get to the mouse and the color of the desktop starts to fade but after a few frames crashes. It looks like the system keeps booting to the desktop. Its just the graphics are not responsive. I have seen this before with osx86 when there is a graphics driver issue.
So I tried to do cleen installs over and over again. I treid to enable graphics mode to yes, I tried ati init etc... none of them worked and its the same issue. It boots up. Looks like its got full res for a moment. Mouse comes up background fades to a light color and then then graphics just freeze.
Now for some reason none of my osx86 installs even want to complete no more. I keep getting the installer encountered an error near then end now. On all versions of osx86. I did not change any bios settings or hardware. I was just trying to find a good install combo to get my graphics to work. Even a full disk partition from disk utility does not seem to want to fix the issue before the start of the re install.
any hints would be great. I'm a little fustrated that it did not work Perhaps I don'r have the best hardware to work oob?
