In Topic: AOpen MiniPC Duo MP945-D (Now 100% compatible!)

12 January 2017 - 08:56 AM

Does someone still use this AOpen MP965-D?

I got (the MP965DR version, but it's almost the same) one because it isn't being used anymore (damn this thing is old)

 

I don't know the specs because I haven't hooked it up yet, I guess it's pretty standard. 80GB HDD and standard CPU.

But when I lookup the specs, I get this:

It says Intel GMA 3100, I thought this videocard doesn't support QE/CI?

 

Could I install vanilla Yosemite, El Capitan or even Sierra on it? (I probably need to upgrade the CPU for Sierra)

What guide could I use best? And what kexts or dsdt do I need to use?

Okay thank you, if it's not even possible to raise the FSB on the E8600, then it's easy. Just keep it standard :)

I have the Optiplex 760 SFF btw.

 

One last question. I want to add a second drive (SSD) but I don't want to loose the optical drive. What's the best alternative solution to add a second drive? Can I use the eSata port for this?

Is the eSata port bootable? And can this eSata port power the SSD drive?

The drive I want to use is an 128GB mSata SSD. I don't think there are eSata <-> mSata cables so I also need to buy an mSata>Sata adapter

Should I use a regular eSata cable?

Or can I better take one with an additional usb cable (for power I assume):

I want a second drive for more storage and I guess it will make it more easy to make it dual-boot (Windows + OS X). But I don't know yet if I want to have OSX on the SSD or Windows.

 

 

(I don't have the computer here atm, so I have to work with the info I find on internet)

In Topic: [How to] Asus P5K-VM guide

What is the best vanilla way to install OS X on this Asus P5K-VM?

This is my setup:

- Asus P5K-VM

- Q6600

- 8GB DDR2 (4x 2GB PC2-6400)

- GTX 670 2GB (Palit GeForce GTX 670 JETSTREAM

- SATA HDD

 

I don't mind which version of OS X it is. Preferably the latest (Sierra or El Capitan) but older is also not a problem (Yosemite or Mavericks)

I've read you can overclock these Optiplex (I have the 760) with SetFSB. Is there something comparable within OS X to do this?

I want to replace the CPU with a E8600 and 8GB of DDR2 (probably PC2-5300 not PC2-6400)

I also bought an EAH5450 SILENT/DI/1GD3(LP)
