Upgrading my hardware, would this configuration work?

11 April 2012 - 07:27 AM

Hey guys, I have a hackintosh working right now using an MSI P6NGM motherboard with a Core 2 Quad processor, a GeForce 7800 graphics card and 4 gigs of DDR2 667mhz RAM. I'm thinking about upgrading to GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD3 motherboard, Intel Core i7-3820 Processor, and 8 gigs of DDR3 1333 RAM while keeping the graphics card the same. Will there be any known issues with this setup? I'm currently using ###### to install Snow Leopard and ###### for the post installation. I will need the firewire and usb ports to work without a hitch as I'm running a firewire interface, a usb graphics card for a third monitor, and a usb ethernet port. Please let me know if any of you spot a problem with this setup. Also, if this won't work or a better setup is available, my budget is $600 for a motherboard, CPU, and RAM.

Thank you so much!

disk1s2: media not present (SOLVED)

21 October 2011 - 01:12 PM

So my setup was working perfectly fine and all of the sudden it started freezing up on me and I had to hard reset. Well, after about 10 hard resets, the system decides not to start up and in verbose mode, just keeps writing "disk1s2: media not present" really fast and floods the entire screen. I tried repairing the disk using the retail dvd and repairing the permissions. It worked for 1 start up and it seemed to work fine for a while but froze after 30 minutes. I had to hard reset again, ran the repair disk and repair permissions from the installation dvd and this time it doesn't help. What is going on here?

Geforece 8400 GS and Geforece 7150/nForce 630i drivers

04 October 2011 - 07:37 AM

Hello, I am trying to run 3 monitors on my system: 2 are connected to the Geforce 8400 GS PCIe card and one is connected to the motherboard display (GeForce 7150/630i). The two connected to the 8400 GS work great, but the other one doesn't get recognized and stays in standby mode. It doesn't even recognize the monitor is connected in the system profiler. However, it does recognize the 7150/630i in there but says it's 1 MB memory. I uploaded images of what the system profiler says. I'm not sure if I need a driver or what, please help me get on the right track.
