Hello all,

Came to this forum after I tried myself to identify the motherboard. It belongs to an Asus X552VL-X008D.

Images in the links below:

I wasn't able of find much about it on the internet, other than that it has intel chipset.

I'd need at least the chipset model, manufacturer and motherboard model but anything additional is more than welcome.

Thank you in advance!

The board is produced by Asus. The model is X550CL Rev. 2.1...

Does the thing still boot or is it ripped to shreds? What the need for the chipset info? drivers?

If that system was designed for the X86 platform, almost impossible to install an OSX platform. Entirely different architecture.
The X86 platform uses CISC (complex instruction set configuration) versus the RISC (reduced instruction set configuration) of the Apple/Mac OS platforms.. such as OSX. Linux-based OS would be a good alternative.

For the correct system feature drivers, look for the string of characters in the lower left hand corner of the first video image. This is a positive ID of the system, plus BIOS info and inception date. That should allow an easier search for proper drivers.
Best to go to the site of the unit's brand. Drivers and BIOS may be different from the parent company that provides systems to other brands.

Edit:
In case you have a problem locating the proper feature drivers for that unit, here is the official site again..
