In fact, he does, and what you're saying is that, in the end, it doesn't really matters, because building a hackintosh-friendly piece of hardware, or even a complete build, doesn't violate itself the EULA, as long as you don't pre-install the OS.

Well, that's disputable: see post #104.

Best regards!


Exactly. Any vendor selling a a UEFI-based GIGABYTE LGA1155 board with compatible CPU and a GraphicsEnabler-supported GPU is effectively selling a Mac clone, or at least an easily hackintosh-able PC.

Thats exactly my point. People thinking this is not legal is laughable.

I doubt it - not that this isn't a valid idea but simply because of conversations I have had with people (mostly creative professionals) who buy Mac Pros. A couple of reasons why:

1) When you're an established business, you don't go around breaking the EULA of the company your workflow is built around.
2) When your livelihood depends on your computer, you don't play with the possibility of important updates breaking your system.
3) Though Macs do fail, AppleCare is still a HUGE motivator for buying a real Mac Pro (this is the one that comes up the most).

Honestly spoken, the majority of people who build Mac Pro-type hackintoshes probably wouldn't shell out the $2500+ bucks it would take to buy a base Mac Pro. This is a general observation - obviously we have seen some KILLER builds on this forum, but generally speaking people who build hackintoshes do so to save money or to tinker. The Mac Pro is designed for the professional market, the majority of whom probably are still buying/considering buying a Mac Pro (although their sales will drop until they announce the new line later this year).

Just my casual observations, but they are backed with many conversations with Mac Pro owners in various professional fields.

If I could allow a Mac Book/Pro, would definitely buy one. That's for sure. When a hardware is pleasant to use and work with, it pays off 100%. Esp. if it's equipment used to earn for living.

First 100 it was $220 and now it is $240. Consider all the add on cards you do not need its a great price.

So, basically by the time this board is generally available it will be up against Haswell boards.

We explained this earlier, I will say one more time.
If and when haswell will meat AOS standards we will make a board with it.
So far, you are talking about a "paper" board and if you google a bit, you will find that haswell has problems and 99.99% it will be delayed.
On top of that, if Apple will use it, as we known from the past, it will get at least one month, if not more, of exclusivity until it will reach PC market, if you add on that how long it will take until it will be stable on all mainstream operating systems, you will get close to the end of this year.

I got an Intel 82574L LAN PCIe card, but OSX don't supports it OOB.
What will be the difference to the chip on the board ?

I'm looking to build a new system over the next few months and have backed this project on Kickstarter. My current PC is over 5 years old so I've been looking at processors to go with this board. I've seen a lot of positive opinions regarding the performance/value of the Xeon E3 Ivy Bridge processors but Rashantha confirmed to me on Kickstarter that those CPUs won't be supported. However, assuming THe KiNG's post above is from the Quo board, it appears to show one being used. Is it just the case of the above being a beta/custom UEFI version or that they're not "officially" supported?

That is just the DRAM controller and the PCI Express controller. Those are not the actual CPU. I have the same output from lspci for my Ivy Bridge i7-3770k.

Does anyone want to share what "Update 7" was on Kickstarter? I'm not a backer (yet?) and it ends in roughly 3 days time. Some of the comments mention that $170K is a stretch goal, which is really looks like the priject is going to hit. I'm just curious what those stretch goals are? Unfortunately that update is only available to backers...
