I've posted a query elsewhere looking for assistance with building a machine with a system board I was given, but in the weeks since I posted that no one has replied at all and there have been no indications of anyone offering to assist me. I admit I'm new here, so I wonder if I maybe broke some protocol or something? I've posted 4 times (including this one) to date, one was a response to a different topic in this section, the other two were asking my questions.

Or am I just being too sensitive and no one has seen the board I'm attempting to use, meaning I'm on my own? If so, I'll keep reading and see what I can pick up, but I was getting curious about it.

When you register here, you are only guaranteed that:
1)You can read our huge database.
2)You can post questions.

Nobody ever guarantees that you'll get an answer!
And that is so for every forum.

It shouldn't even be necessary to explain why, but here are a few examples:
1)Your question has already been answered.
2)Your question is too common.
3)Nobody knows the answer, or there isn't any. Even the greatest guru doesn't know everything.
4)Those who know the answer don't see your post or cannot be bothered to reply.
And so on...

Sometimes posts just don't get answered. I now have 179 posts and this. Bump it some (not more than once a day) and see if anyone replies.

Please note that bumping is against the rules.

Oops. We just let old threads die then? Is copypasta allowed (making another topic asking the same thing)?

Even worse :)
What can we do, topics can't be in the front page forever.

Actually, I was only trying to determine if I'd breached etiquette when I posted the original message in this thread. Apparently not, since you didn't indicate that I had. Thank you for responding.

I have gotten some responses to my 2nd post, which instead of being at the end of a longer thread was a new topic of its own, so I now have something to go on while I'm starting to compile the rest of my hardware. This may well work out after all, and I'm grateful to those who responded to me.

People usually aren't willing to walk others through the entire process of building a hackintosh. It works better if you do your own research on what components will or will not work. Then you can take part in more specific discussions getting specific components to work.
