  1. I bought the new Magic Trackpad 2 (far too expensive, but that's another topic) and cannot get more than simple move the pointer around the screen functionality on it. I have checked to make sure it works on another real Mac I have. I have 10.11.1 on an MSI Z77MA-G45. I have a custom DSDT with some USB fixes (still not getting USB 3.0 speeds however). I have installed in S/L/E: BrcmPatchRAM2.kext + BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext. I also have a Clover patch: <key>Comment</key> <string>10.11.dp1+ BT4LE-Handoff-Hotspot, credit RehabMan based on Dokterdok original</string> <key>Find</key> <data>SIX/dEdIiwc=</data> <key>Name</key> <string>IOBluetoothFamily </string> <key>Replace</key> <data>Qb4PAAAA60Q=</data> Below are some additional info, advice would be great.

  2. Hello, have you been able to see if you get true USB 3 speeds on your USB 3 ports? 5Gbps? Thanks!
  3. MSI Z77MA-G45 Worklog/Help Request

    Success with a full Clover UEFI setup. For running with the built-in Intel 4000 graphics, make sure you select Inject Intel in the Graphics section in Clover config. I have sound successful via both analog and HDMI via a patched DSDT along with https://github.com/toleda/audio_cloverALC to get the Realtek ALC892 working. If you don't need HDMI audio, you can stop with just this, if you need HDMI audio, then Add in patches to Clover config according to https://github.com/toleda/audio_CloverHDMI Make the direct kext frame buffer edits https://github.com/toleda/graphics_Intel_framebuffers TO make HDMI Audio DSDT: MaciASL -> add http://pjalm.com/ sources Boot no DSDT (or press F4 at the Clover boot screen, then grab the DSDT out of ACPI origin folder in Clover's EFI folder) Patch MSI MSI-Z77A-G45, then Graphics Intel HD4000 Then need frame buffer edits, http://www.tonymacx86.com/graphics/125239-hd4600-hd4000-hd3000-framebuffer-edits.html MSI framebuffer is 0x6
  4. Well, that didn't work for me. In fact when I changed it, it brought back the "contact iMessage support" message when I tried to log in to iMessage.
  5. HD4000 loading but no QE

    Might want to try creating a DSDT for your board. See http://www.macbreaker.com/2014/03/how-to-edit-your-own-dsdt-with-maciasl.html For getting the base DSDT if you are booting with Clover, in the Clover boot screen, press F4. It will save the DSDT (along with a lot of other files) to your Clover > ACPI > origin folder. Use this as the basis to then follow the instructions.
  6. Since this thread is for Mavericks, I have started a new on for Yosemite here.
  7. Yosemite is up and running now on my wife's Asus Z87I-Deluxe. I used Shunu's Qlover Note to install on the USB drive, instructions on the link. First make sure you install for UEFI so you can avoid the MBR madness. It is also important that in the Graphics section that Intel injection is on, otherwise you will get a kernel panic. Initial WiFi via built in card can be had via toleda's toledaARPT.kext from here. For turning on the 5Ghz on the built-in WiFi, use the below in your Clover Config file (thanks Girl Introverted for this code). <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>10.10-Airport_BCM4352_5Ghz</string> <key>Find</key> <data> WFQAKxgsIQAg </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AirPortBrcm4360</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> WFQICjYcRwAK </data> </dict> </array> I was never successful getting the built-in BT working, gave up and bought an BT dongle. For the Realtek ALC1150, follow toleda's CloverALC here.
  8. MSI Z77MA-G45 Worklog/Help Request

    Hi folks. I'm doing a fresh install on my MSI Z77MA-G45 with a new 500GB SSD. BIOS has been patched. I can successfully install with [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url], but I like using Clover much better and of course want the faster UEFI booting. I have created a USB boot drive using the instructions from http://cloverboot.weebly.com. Clover starts up nicely, then after beginning to load the OS X installer, it gets stuck just after showing: init probe start Then some odd stuff about not finding the bluetooth ([iOBluetoothHCIController][start] -- completed) If I wait awhile, a grey screen will come up and I get a spinning beach ball. If I try safe boot, I get a reboot almost immediately. No matter what I change in the config it does not seem to help; I have a monitor attached via DVI. And I suspect it's something with the display, but I could be wrong. Ideas?
  9. HWSensors

    Don't want to install Windows to run HWMonitor to grab sensor info for your board? I made a bootable CD ISO with BartPE, Windows XP, and CPUID HWMonitor v1.23. Use OS X Disk Utility to burn to a CD. Reboot In BIOS, disable AHCI; Use IDE mode for your drives Boot from the CD Run HWMonitor Plug in 2GB or smaller thumb drive to save HWMonitor output/screenshots Why a CD, not USB? I'm lazy and making a USB is a lot more steps. Grab it at http://www.osx86.net/downloads.php?do=file&id=4026
