Optimized For SSD- Inateck USB 3.0 HDD Case

11 September 2014 - 07:55 AM


i recently buy on Amazon the inatek Usb 3.0 HDD Case and i put inside my SSD Corsair Force GT 120GB 2.5".

This case is optimized for SSD and should give a very high speed rate on USb 3.0


The problem is that despite all expectations , i cannot properly boot OSX ML from it.


I have created two partition with OSX Lion and OSX Montain Lion and when SDD is connected directly to SATA port inside PC it works very well


( 430 Mb/write/read), but when i mount it in Inatek case, i am able to boot only OSx Lion .. ( Disk speed test MagicDesign gives 150/210Mb /Write/read)


It's very strange - i have installed USB 3.0 Kext (PXHCD.kext) on both partition and i use Chameleon 2.1 snv 1820  to boot .

On Usb 2.0 port is the same : doesn't boot OSX ML, only Lion.


it seems that there are some incompatibilities with USb 3.0 port.


My Hack is :

Gigabyte H67N-USB3-B3 Socket 1155 Intel H67 DDR3 SATA3 USB3 HDMI

CPU Intel Core i5-2500K 3.30GHz

SSD Corsair Force GT 120GB 2.5"

HDD Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5"

RAM DDR3 G.Skill Sniper F3-10666CL9D-8GBSR 1333MHz 8GB

VGA Sapphire Ati AMD Radeon HD 6450

Intel HD3000 (on board)

Case Micro Techsolo TC-020 MicroATX / power 400W

Blu-ray Sony BD-5300S 12x BD/DVD/CD burner

Acer S241 HL 24" 5ms HDMI monitor



My try is to sustitute the case or find a workaroud

SheepShaver and Mac OS 9

10 January 2014 - 10:15 AM

Hi, i want share my trial with this Mac OS 9 emulator.

You can find all you need here


1) download Sheepshaver for windows and unzip it into a folder
2) search on internet a Mac OS ROM ( 4Mb)
3) search on internet a Mac OS 9 Install Disk ISO ( 600 Mb)

then run Sheepshaver GUI and configure your VM
- create a Vm disk ( macos9.hfv) of at least 512 Mb ( 277 Mb are needed for installation)
- add VM disk macos9.hfv and Mac OS 9 ISo to volumes ( i.e max MaC OS 9.0.4) Mac oS 9.1 is not supported
- set windowed and 1024x768 resolution
- set network to BassiliKII_Slirp

Start SheepShaver , inizialize VMDisk, Run Mac Os 9 Install

Wait 10 minutes , voilĂ  you have got a Mac Os 9 System virtalized

Hint :

Mac Os 9 ISO must be set readonly in windows otherwise boot error occurs
- Internet explorer 5.0 crash VM so you must use iCab Web Browser to go in internet
- Outlook will run ( but i haven't tried yet)
- Install Adobe reader 4.0 ( to read PDF)

Graphics - Windowed or full screen
Audio - works
Network - works

See Ya

Which is the best Mac OS X version ?

30 December 2013 - 07:18 AM

Come on, respond to this simple open question : Which is, for you, the best Mac OS X version ever released ? Please don't answer the next one ( next year release). I prefer by now OS X Lion because is some different from Snow Leopard ... Next Montain Lion o Mavericks didn't have news functions that i cannot live without ... This is IMMO. See Ya
