  1. will do, I have extra HDD. Putting up christmas lights tonight but first thing in morning will do compare and post my results..
  2. going to restore one of my computers back to mavericks and do some testing to see if I can see any changes. Have two apple accounts, one for work and iMessage works on that one, the other is my hack for play. Lets see what I can find. All I have is time. keep u posted and thanks for all your input holyfield.
  3. Dude not new to hackintoshing. I understand what you are saying but it is pretty cut and dry what I did. I am not wasting apple support time, I own real mac and pay for the service. I am a retired dev and I think I can handle transposing values from 1 config.plist to another. We r humans that is why I had other people look over what I have done. To make sure I didn't miss something. I never assume that I am perfect I know {censored} happens as they say.
  4. Have all those settings. Complete SMBOS I have been using since I switched to clover. iMessage was working fine till upgrade to yosemite. No clover settings have changed at all. Thanks for input. When working with support everything seems fine and they say it should work but is not. only time will tell if the engineers will find something.
  5. Hey All, Just figured I post my soap opera with apple support. iMessage gets code to call support after upgrade to Yosemite. I have real mac mlb and rom my own, go thru all questions. 3 Security questions I set. He goes and sends code to reset my iMessage, try to login and get code again. I spent about 2 hrs with multiple support people with no resolution. I am now working with apple engineers to resolve the problem. He said I should from him in 4 to 5 days. So if there is some new info the are collecting I should find out shortly. Will post results as soon as I get them. Other wise everything works perfect on my hack. PS. Only difference I see from mavericks to yosemite is that I don't have apple dir in efi, doesn't seem to be writing to it anymore. Running latest clover. my nvram works fine can write to it and results stay. Does anybody know if this is a problem or nothing to worry about? or did apple stop doing this?
  6. have turned off Fast boot and AHCI mode off !!!!! AHCI has to be turned on to see drive.......
  7. had to call support but had good serial and done on about 5 minutes. Remember VALID SERIAL # needed... Thanks for the guide.....
  8. you only need gop support if you run uefi and then discrete graphics has to be GOP. Just install by the old bios way and you should have no problems... CSM off is for UEFI booting...
  9. read previous posts, it is all there, have people forgotten how to read. This is a brainless solution.
  10. have been watching and xp thanks for all your hard work on z77x-ud5h board. I just ordered new samsung evo ssd and does this version work with discrete graphics or igpu only. looked back on posts and did not notice if works with peg or igpu?
  11. No isn't, It wasn't that hard just take your time. Lots of screws and they are all numbered.
  12. hey guys want to thank all for help.but I think I am going to go back to my gentoo. Already started to compile my system. I did get bios 1 back. thanks again.....
  13. I stopped around 2:00 in morning. Was getting brain dead. It is a new morning and will get this working today. D-an-W thanks for the suggestion. I will try after get a pot of coffee in me. Problem happened when I was trying to switch between Discrete graphics and onboard. It locked up then, will try suggestion and post what happens....
  14. I don't know what happened but it hosed my bios. had to switch to #2. first bios is dead. what a drag.
  15. what did you do to get past blank screen. I am trying to do fresh install? Has anyone done this with Discrete GPU only?
