Asus X99-Pro Motherboard and OS X Yosemite (Hackintosh)

Let me start off by stating that this is NOT a how-to for installing a Apple's OS X on an ASUS X99-Pro motherboard. A how-to is way beyond the scope of what this blog post is capable of.

You can download the Variety RPM from my Google Drive.
