Worth a try I have read of people using non-ecc in a mac pro so it is possible probable worst case non-booting system until you put the ecc back..
I now have 14gb DDR3 Non ECC Rams on my system. I have one stick of 4GB and the rest are 2GB modules. Tell me this, I have a stick of 4GB server ram but it won't take that. I always thought that ECC Rams are necessarily server rams and vice versa. Please shed some light.
If you actually use a patched DSDT.aml file, you can edit it using an editor tool such as DSDTEditor or convert the compiled .aml to source .dsl that can be edited through any text editor such as TextEdit.
If you don't use any patched DSDT file, you can extract it from BIOS through tools such as DSDT editor or Chameleon Wizard.
Thanks Herve, you're very helpful.
Eversince I upgraded to an SSD, my Mavericks now boot up within 5 seconds from apple logo to login screen. I've never seen that before in my whole experience with Hackintoshes. And I've had a whole lot.. Trust me.
I have an Intel SSD 160Gb as primary drive on my Z400, using an adapter 2,5" to 3,5" bracket, you can find it on eBay.
The app I'm using to monitor my hardware is iStatMenus
My cpu is a Xeon X5670, payed 80 British Pounds (used) on the UK eBay. This one clocks @2,93 an goes up to 3,33Ghz in turbo mode, for the price I payed I couldn't expect more.....it works like a champ.
Yeah, I see a couple on Ebay for around $100-150. I'll probalby consider once I get to put my machine to use a whole lot. I'm just really happy I get a stable machine outta this workstation. I plan on installing windows 10 when it's available, migrating from windows 7.
