@JoshFailingHackintosh xeon x3230 is an Intel Processor,

Did you try to boot with Chameleon @fuzzman20 

Disable UEFI in BIOS, boot with USB, it will load Chameleon boot-loader, with that you may be able to boot, try and report

Did you check Your BIOS Settings, Did you enable Executive disable bit in BIOS?

Follow this Hackintosh BIOS settings guide for complete instruction

@Niresh i think you haven't read the guide properly

Sierra & High Sierra requires SSE4.1 instruction set, Your processor doesn't support it, Your pc is incapable of running High Sierra

@fuzzman20 Yes you can even update to 10.10.5 but before that you must patch a sandbox kernel cache bug.

@Niresh i have updated and everything seems fine on 10.10.2 however my radeon 5450 card only has full res but no graphics acceleration. is there any way to fix this? it was not working on initial install either.

i have an 8800gts card 512mb version i think. should i use that instead?

 

also is there a workaround to sign into icloud/app store?
