  1. I could never get Sandy Bridge CPU's to work so can't offer any help there. NullCPUPM will disable speed stepping. You will need to enable the Asus Power Management fix in Clover along with KernelPM and KernelCPU recognition, you might need AppleRTC fixing too Boot arguments should be -v npci=0x2000 xcpm_ipi SMBIOS to use either iMac14,2 will get the graphics working with no patching needed SMBIOS MacPro6,1 will need an SSDT for the 660ti but it was for use with El-Cap and not Sierra so might no longer work Do not use Clover Configurator's Use Nvidia Web Drivers it's broken (or was the last time I used it) use Clovers boot Options/Graphics section to set the Use Web Drivers but only after you have installed them. So you are right to boot with NV_Disable=1 (depending on your smbios) it will be slow because it's using VESA mode, but it will enable you to download and install the Nvidia web drivers. Please note the iMac14,2 requires no web drivers to get full function of the 660ti Martin
  2. There are a number of hardware differences between the CPU capabilities that could cause issues. I recommend a fresh new install. Martin
  3. You have done well to get a Sandy processor to work as MP6,1 Martin
  4. Your boot args look good, try adding agdp=Mac-00BE6ED71E35EB86 to the end and see if that gets you in, if not the SMBios might work as an iMac 14,2 Martin
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. You might have some luck reading through This Hope it works for you Martin
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. search using your preferred search engine using 'asus rog g750js hackintosh success' as the query Martin
  15. 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
