Not sure if this is allowed on TomsHardware but I'm about to kill myself if i dont get a solution to this problem..(jk) i have an AsRock Professional-M microatx motherboard with patched 1.9 bios and everything seems to work except that my CPU is "unknown".. other people have gotten lucky and just waited about 15 minutes and it will go over it but I havent been so lucky. If you have any recommendations as to what i should check on Multibeast then PLEASE tell me! I AM DESPERATE FOR SOME HELP :??:

Can you pres f2 as it boots and get into bios?
If you can, you might be able to set the cpu up manually.
If other people are having problems its possible the bios patch
didnt officially support your chip.

yes I can and ill disable everything in bios for my CPU to see if that will help but the odd thing is that before i flash my DSDT it detects my CPU perfectly.. I'm beginning to think that its the DSDT thats the problem



EDIT: i just disabled all of the features for my cpu and it is still giving me that problem. I'm really thinking that its the DSDT because my bios has been patched and everything

Is your motherboard supported? I picked the Asus Z77 Sabertooth when I set my Hackintosh up because it did not need a DSDT. I am running 10.8.3 and my i5 3570K is seen correctly.

It's supported with a DSDT but its weird how osx works before I flash the DSDT . A couple people used his DSDT with the same motherboard but flashed with clover(something like that) not unibeast. He said it should work with unibeast / multibeast .
