X99-PCI configuration begin and more

Recommended Posts

I prepared an Olarila usb installer following the directions on this site. But when I try to install Catalina on my X99 board, I get stuck on « pci configuration begin » and reboot. Then I prepared another usb installer using « Create media installer » and I replaced the original EFI with the X99 EFI from Olarila. With this usb installer I can boot the installer and the installation even starts normally until I get an error about two minutes before completion of the installation first step. Data validation problem. What is my option?

Thanks for your reply. However I don't quite understand how I should go about Extracting Tables. I suppose I boot the computer with the usb installer but when exactly should I press F4? Will any clue be visible on the screen after pressing F4?

Thanks

Hi. Magic! The installation was very smooth. And everything is working. I think I did not read enough information posted on your site. Or I would have understood that Catalina is not like High Sierra and the previous systems. I cannot manage to install it by my own means. I need your help. I can assure you that I will ask for help when I build my next computer. You cannot imagine how many hours I wasted. It won't happen again. Believe me. Your site is the best. The installation is the easiest and the fastest I have ever seen. Thanks again.

Hi

After rebooting my computer I realized that the keyboard and mouse are not working at the Clover booting window. If I quickly unplug and replug the keyboard, then it works but the wireless mouse does not work. When Catalina is launched I have to unplug the wireless keyboard receiver and replug it in order to make it work, What should I do?


Thanks

origin.zipI found the culprit: a keyboard extension cable that was probably too small in diameter. I am joining an "Origin" folder in order to get the appropriate DSDT.

Thanks again

HI 1

Something very weird happened. As you suggested, I added a fakecpuid kext and I used the same DSDT to install Mac OS 10,15.1 on a second X 99 build. I was able to boot from the usb installer and I could complete the installation. Then I installed Clover, replaced the EFI with the X99, repaired permissions and rebooted. But the computer does not boot. Instead it hangs as shown on the screenshot attached. Besides, I cannot boot from the USB installer which I previously used to install Catalina on the same computer. What did I do wrong? I attached my EFI folder.

I compressed my EFI folder but the system tells me that the file is too large. What should I do to send it to you?


Thanks

Hi

Do you mean selecting another fakecpuid from the roll down list in CloverConfigurator or adding a .kext in the kext folder of my EFI?


Thanks

Thanks again for your time.

I was able to install on my two X99 builds using FakeCPUID 0x0306F2 Haswell-E. However, on both computers I am having problems with usb ports. Whenever I plug a usb accessory, I get a message telling me that the usb accessory needs power. Therefore I cannot use any usb accessory. Besides, on one of the computers, plugging a usb 2 keyboard and mouse in a usb 3 port prevents booting. I thought the DSDT would set all the usb ports right. What should I do to get my usb ports working the way they should?

Thanks in advance

Hi

I removed usbinjectall but then several usb ports were not working.

Any other suggestion?
