In Topic: How to: Intel Pentium G3XXX and Celeron G1XXX (Haswell) works with speedstep...

23 October 2015 - 04:43 PM

My heartfelt thanks to stinga11. I am a complete beginner with Cloverbut am slowly absorbing it.

 

I rashly promised to Hackintoshify a friend's new Acer Veriton VX2631 U10  which showed itself both as a Core i5 and a Pentium G3220 in different situations. ( I have MacMini in my config.plist so the "Core i5 " might be coming from there ? )

 

This Veriton has just one PCI Express slot and luckily I had a Sapphire HD6450 laying around which just fits in the case

and works OOTB with QE/IC ( ripples in Dashboard ).

 

 Ethernet is working as is audio with injected kexts.

 

I used Clover UEFI and installed Yosemite 10.10.0 and then a direct Combo upgrade to 10.10.5 and it was really noticble that under 10.10.0 after the first install I had frequent "out of nowhere shutdowns ( no KP's ) but after the 10.10.5 upgrade they have all but disappeared.

 

If anyone has any thoughts on the following I would be grateful.

 

1.  This Acer Veriton VX2631 U10has only one 4 gb memory stick. I have always thought that TWO identical RAM sticks was an  

     absoolute  requirement.

     System Profiler shows " RAM ???? " + the 4gb size.

 

2.  In System Profiler nothing shows under PCI cards tab. What have I missed ?

 

=============================================================

3. Here is my config.plist. What obvious Clover option(s) have I missed ?

I have not yet gotten around to making either SSDT or DSDT.

 

Stinga11, Many, many thanks.

In Topic: GenericUSBXHCI USB 3.0 driver for OS X with source

01 July 2015 - 04:21 PM

I add my gratitude and thanks to Zenith. This year I decided to revive my old Mac Pro 2.1 Dual Quad 3 Ghz and now have a HD 5870 ( also a MSI HD 5770 ) ( both with EFI DVI-VGA ) running on 10.9.5 flawlessly. I even found a used FireWIRE 400 card as my Apple FireWire mysteriously died.

 

Today here in Japan I bought a locally made AREA USB 3.0 card for ¥1,800, threw in Zenith's kext and ! Viola ! I now also have USB 3.0 up and running. This old MP still has a few more good years left in her.

 

I add Zenith to the honours list which includes Netkas and Tiamo. Thanks a million guys.

 

All I need to get tomorrow is a USB 3.0 HD dock and a genuine USB 3.0 cable. Total cost for all of these upgrades will be around US$ 150.

 

Next purchase will be a 4,1 MP with all the above goodies shoved in. Then I'll need to put my seatbelt on prior to bootup.

 

Cheers.
