MSI B85M-P33 - Can't boot installer, instant restart no matter what flags are used




After a few years long break from Hackintosh I'm trying to get back with my "new" PC. Unfortunately I didn't build it with Hackintosh in mind so I guess my motherboard is incompatible / has some problems. First, the spec:


CPU: i5 4440

GPU: Gigabyte GTX 660 2GB




I downloaded latest Niresh Yosemite and made a bootable USB using TransMac. However, once I boot up from it and choose "Yosemite-Zone", my PC instantly restarts just after seeing Hackintosh Zone logo for a second. I tried booting with all kinds of flags. GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No, PCIRootUID=0/1, -x, -v, ncpci=0x2000 etc. Nothing, always the same. When I boot in verbose mode I can't even see any error. Back in the days when I was installing Snow Leo, booting with -v resulted with installer getting stuck at the error so I could see what's going on. Now its different, even when I boot with -v I can see kexts loading up but then it just restarts without giving me an error.


I set all the things I could in my MOBO's settings according to installation guide. Booting mode is set from "UEFI" to "Legacy+UEFI" (that's all I have, don't have typical "Legacy" or "UEFI=Disabled"), HPET is enabled (I can only choose enabled/disabled, don't have an option to set it to 64-bit), disks run on AHCI. I tried booting using my NVIDIA GTX 660 and  internal graphics - always the same. I even unplugged completely my GTX 660 and run strictly on internal card - same thing. I even tried to unplug all the hard drives just to see if the installer boots up - nothing helps.


So I guess the last thing that might prevent me from booting up is my MOBO. I digged through all the settings and I set everything correctly as much as I could - the settings on my mobo are kind of limited so not much to change :/ Is it possible that I need to patch my BIOS? I heard there is some pmpatch and uefipatch. Which one to choose? Is UEFIPatch really needed if I'm not using full UEFI boot mode?

    • Sierra installed without any issue, but cannot get GT620 to work. Installed Cuda and Webdriver and boots without issues, but home screen wallpaper disappears and screen becomes black. Is this card supported on Sierra?
    • I get this message no matter what I do, I've tried changing my SMBIOS to a newer model to no avail. Anyone no how to get the second install boot to work?
    • This is my first time doing Hackintosh. I've several other machines running Mac using UniBeast and Multi beast. I wanted to try Hackintosh Vanilla. So far, no luck. I followed the Guide and MacPwn Mojave Guide. 
    • Hello! I wanted to install MacOS High Sierra, but the SSD does not appear in Disk Manager. I have a Samsung Pro 840 250GB. Is there a Driver for Intel Gigabit 82579LM Network LAN for MacOS High Sierra?
    • This is my very first post and have looked around the forums to my question but I wasn't able to find the exact specifics that I need. This is my very first windows/mac dual boot project. I chose to attempt high sierra and I hope I am posting in the correct area. High Sierra seemed to be the newest that is possibly more stable than Mojave so I chose that. I'm reaching out to the more advanced builders and experienced people. I'm currently running Win 10 as of now and bought a separate SSD to install a macOS on. Before I invest time and energy into this. I'm wanting to get the best recommendations on what OS I should choose , if my hardware will be up for the task and my best plan of attack. I'll be honest I'm not ready to bang my head on the keyboard for hours. I've been there and done that.  My hardware was some of the best at its time in 2011 and I'm not 100% confident it will work with a more up to date macOS I'm also concerned about drivers for my GPU.  All input is welcomed   Here are my current specs:   CPU
          Intel Core i7 2600 @ 3.40GHz    28 °C
          Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology
          8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 668MHz (9-9-9-24)
          ASUSTeK Computer INC. CG8350 (LGA1155)    26 °C
