#2061516 Apple to seed iOS 8 later this afternoon.

Posted by fallen101 on 17 September 2014 - 02:39 PM

iOS 8 brings a large number of features to iOS that users have been asking for years. With ios 8 apple now allows applications to have widgets in notification center. But that isn't the only change happening to motivation center on IOS 8, allowing users to interact with notifications, for instance you can send a text message right from notification center! The coolest feature coming to iOS 8 requires OS X Yosemite, and it's called Continuity. This further closes the gap between iOS and OS X. Continuity allows you to begin typing an email, text message, and what not on your iPhone/iPad, and finish it on you "Mac." But wait, you can't send/receive text messages on your computer what are you crazy! Is what you might be saying. Nope with iOS they also allow you to take phone calls on your "Mac" as well as answer and send text messages. Apple has already opened up Touch ID API to developers to harness the full potential of using your fingerprint as an encryption method. Furthermor...

#2042247 [Rumored]Apple planing to release a 12" Retina Macbook

Posted by fallen101 on 20 July 2014 - 03:11 PM

A die shrinkage isn't all that's coming to broadwell, some minor video improvements have been confirmed for the chip. Which adds VP8 hardware decoding, as well as two independent stream decoders to boost video decoding performance and speed. The TDP can be as little as 3.5W and as high as 4.5 Watts. This is great news for apple! despite only being dual core processors, these pack a powerful punch, allowing apple to create a smaller MacBook without compromising size, battery life or performance. In fact some rumors clam that it'll be even thinner then the current MacBook Air! Stunning! Let me know if you're as excited as I am about what apple has in store for us in the upcoming months! source: MacRumors Click here to view the article

#2041781 VMware Fusion fails to boot Windows 8.1 Bootcamp

Posted by fallen101 on 18 July 2014 - 07:23 PM

Yeah that seems to be it, I believe it's because you have it all on one disk. The virtual machine is trying to boot off of that partition but its missing the bootloader

#2040868 VMware Fusion fails to boot Windows 8.1 Bootcamp

Posted by fallen101 on 15 July 2014 - 01:25 PM

Thank you again, I will boot Windows 8 and check with disk manager maybe some partition other than 4 has become active :) Partition 1 I think it's the EFI (?) partition (created by OSX install), Partition 2 is OSX Partition 3 I don't know, maybe that weird "recovery" thingy that Clover sees. Partition 4 is Windows 8.1Alrighty just in case back up clover or chameleon on a flash drive just in case anything happens to the boot loader. Better safe then sorry.

#2040855 VMware Fusion fails to boot Windows 8.1 Bootcamp

Posted by fallen101 on 15 July 2014 - 12:37 PM

Wait I just noticed you're getting a boot0 error... If it's a physical disk I don't want to mess up your bootloader for your hackontosh. BUT you can fix windows 8 by using the Plop manger, and from their repair the windows bootloader. Here the Plop screen. I have to select the highlighted Partition 4 to Boot Windows. Selecting Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 Plop says "No Valid Bootsector signature (Y/N)", pressing Y in Part 1 VMware says "A fault has occurred causing a virtual CPU to enter the shutdown state" Cool, right? [ that is interesting what's on partitions 1-3?

#2040848 ASUS X53SV - Boot problem

Posted by fallen101 on 15 July 2014 - 12:20 PM

Okay, here is Diskutil list: This is: -v GraphicsEnabler=No This is: -v GraphicsEnabler=Yes Thanks a bunch your flash drive is actually being detected you just need to mount it. First try plugging out and plugging the flash drive back in. If that doesn't work open terminal and run these commands. mkdir /Volumes/USB (an be named what ever you like) Sudo mount -t hfs /dev/disk1s2 /Volumes/USB Then copy over the Extras folder from the flash drive over to your Macintosh HD.

Boot Camp? Boot Camp is what Apple calls dual booting on a Mac traditionally windows I'm going to assuming you're on Non-apple hardware in this case. Check VMware Fusion's settings and make sure windows is boot with EFI and not legacy.

#1830008 What is a Distro?

Posted by fallen101 on 28 June 2012 - 07:58 PM

What is a distro? A distro (abbreviation for distribution) is a copy* of MacOS X that has been conveniently modified to ease the installation process on non-Apple machines, i.e., it comes with a mechanism capable of booting the installation DVD on generic PCs (bootloader) and additional drivers (kexts) pre-configured to enlarge the number of hardware components correctly recognized by Mac OS X. Retail installs VS Distro installs: With Retail installs you bought a copy of OS X from Apple, and during and after the install you know what patches you've installed. One becomes quite educated in this process, enabling you to fix your computer if things go wrong, or even help others out. This provides the most secure type of installation and will have more Mac-like qualities about it. You can also use Apple's updates without fear.** Myth-buster: retail installs are not harder than distros. They are of equal difficulty, simply retail installs take a little bit more effort/researc...

#1829606 CPU Temperature getting way out of hand

Posted by fallen101 on 26 June 2012 - 10:28 PM

1. When you applied the thermal compound did you clean off 100% of the hold compound from the heat sync and the processer? 2. I believe you should put the old heat sync fan on and test what your idling at replacing a fan isnt that difficult.
