In Topic: Intel Atom x5 z8300 BIOS Issues

26 March 2017 - 01:00 PM

Computers with Intel Atom SoCs in them which Intel started making in 2012 aren't recommended since there's no graphics support with those. Apple never used Intel SoCs so they didn't need to make drivers for it. This is why you can't find much help installing OS X on them.

The CPU isn't supported either but you can patch the kernel for that. I don't think it's really worth your time though as you'll end up with a disappointing result. Sorry :(

What bootloader are you installing to your OS X install media? Clover? Chameleon? What you install determines whether you'll be wanting to boot your install media in BIOS or UEFI mode. You also need to configure your bootloader and install the correct kexts. Since you don't mention any of this then my guess if you're trying to boot unmodified OS X install media on a PC, which does not work that way (with exceptions like Ozmosis). That's why nothing is booting.


Also I want to bring up the z8300's graphics is Cherry Trail which isn't supported in OS X. So only install OS X on this if you're fine with choppy low resolution graphics.

In Topic: WiFi USB card for Sierra

25 March 2017 - 10:05 PM

Here's one I've used with the latest version of Sierra and I haven't run into any issues with it. I just bought it a month ago: TP-Link TL-WN725N https://www.amazon.c...N/dp/B008IFXQFU


Looks like it uses the same or similar Realtek chip as the Edimax EW-7811UN as the drivers given for them are the same. Feel free to go with Edimax if you want to save $0.50.

In Topic: HP/Compaq WIFI Error 104 (whitelist)

25 March 2017 - 06:32 PM

I took a quick look at your BIOS file and it has these cards listed in the whitelist that I'm seeing:
8086:1043 subvendor 8086:2527, 8086:2522 - PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter
8086:4220 subvendor 103c:12f5, 103c:12f6, 8086:2701 - Intel® PRO/Wireless 2200BG
14e4:4320 subvendor 103c:12f4, 103c:12f6, 103c:12f8, 103c:12fa, 103c:12fb  - Broadcom BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller
I replaced the device and subdevice ids for the 2100 3B with the 2915 model info you provided in BIOSCOD1.ROM where they're referenced. Included is the WinPhlash app for flashing with the modded BIOS named MODDED.WPH and also includes the original.
I am not responsible for anything that goes wrong with this.
If it flashes fine but you still are getting the error 104 then let me know. According to the page some 2915ABG models use device id 8086:4223 subvendor id 8086:1000-1003 which I didn't add to this whitelist. I can add those as well.

In Topic: AOS NUC?! What is this guy doing?

16 March 2017 - 10:42 PM

My guess is they just have Ozmosis installed which is what AOS used from what I remember. You can install it into a number of motherboards' UEFI firmware, Haswell motherboards included. It takes away the need to install disk-based UEFI bootloaders like Clover. They're just using the AOS label to sell their stuff.

That case isn't anything special either - it's a Habey EMC-600BL designed for standard mini ITX boards. You can buy it from a number of online stores.
