  1. Ah ... OK Here's some simple steps that may help... If using USB mouse and Keyboard make sure they are connected via USB2 if available ports, if not you may need PS2 keyboard only Try removing your PCIe graphics card and use your onboard graphics for BIOS access Make sure your CPU is on the supported CPU list available on the ASUS support pages for your motherboard on their website If all these steps fail to get you into your BIOS then check with your motherboard supplier if they have a replacement warranty if the board is faulty (most UK suppliers allow 4-12 weeks from date of purchase) If Supplier does not support return/swap policy then contact ASUS you may need to RMA the motherboard if it's still covered by ASUS warranty Martin
  2. If you need both OS's then use legacy to boot your SSD drives. UEFI mode does not seem to work very well when using Win/OSX as both OS's want to have exclusive rights to the first detected HDD/SSD. As for the glitch with the graphics card other than making sure it's seated correctly then there is nothing I can think of other trying a different PCIe slot. In days gone by some Asus boards preferred slot 3 whilst others preferred slot 5 if you have that many. Martin
  3. EIST is now handled by KernelPM and -xcpm_ipi so it's safe to be disabled in the BIOS, you may want to consider disabling HyperThreading too especially with Sierra. If you are using El-Cap then you will probably find VooDooTSCSync and the kext given here will help with getting full SpeedStep and Power Management enabled. Martin HackPlatformPlugin.kext.zip
  4. If you're using clover then it should boot using the Asus fix and ticking KernelPM in the kernel patches section. You can also boot using -xcpm_ipi as a boot flag. Martin
  5. The link you provided gives you the chipset info ... Chipset: Renesas uPD720201+Genesys GL3520 ... so I need slapping for missing the number 7 off Martin
  6. You're welcome - Try reading all the posts from 1 to #35 as they might contain little gems of information you need to know. From post #35 the guide specifically covers your chipset 20201 Martin
  7. You might have some luck reading through This Hope it works for you Martin
  8. Not enough information to be able to answer this ... Need to know the card ID or chipset it's using , even with that information it still might not have an OS X driver. Martin
  9. I had a quick search to see if there are any success stories out there for the Pavilion model you gave and sadly didn't find any. I would recommend posting at http://amd-osx.com and see if there are any folks there that might know if it can be done. Martin
  10. search using your preferred search engine using 'asus rog g750js hackintosh success' as the query Martin
  11. If you are uncertain, I advise that you wait until you know someone with similar specs as your setup who has had success. That way if you run into issues you have a contact for help if needed Not the best answer I know, but the only one I can offer Martin
  12. Try this link and see if it helps Click here Martin
  13. CPU does matter - If you have an unsupported CPU you will have to use a FakeCPUID. Martin
  14. Yes it can be done but I don't know how ... DMos here is the guy for AMD hackintosh builds but he's not around as much these days because of other commitments. If you have time to wait, then I am sure he will chip in when he gets time. If not try http://amd-osx.com they have a forum there that will get you started. Martin
  15. The Z9 should work as a Mac Pro 6,1 SMBios but you will need to find a proper Serial Number - Serials that start with CO can be problematic. 128Gb RAM is good for the Mac Pro 6,1 too The DSDT might need editing to get the full 24/48 cores/threads to work, if I remember rightly you will get AppleACPI errors on boot if it's needed El-Cap used to support the -xcpm_ipi too and you can get proper speed step support with Yosemite and El-Cap Yosemite gives you better chance of getting Nvidia working without black screen issues if the GFX card is installed to PCIe Slot 5 El-Cap required the SSDT2 file if I remember rightly too.
