  1. I’ve got a really strange issue that I can’t seem to find a solution for. I’ve got Mavericks successfully installed using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] (this was the case with Mountain Lion too). I install [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and reboot, so everything is working great. However, when I go to reboot the system again, I get a blinking underscore for a while and then a boot0: error. No boot0: GPT or repeated message, just the one. When I reboot the system from a [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] drive, I can see the installer, but not the boot drive I just created. When I go into disk utility on the installer, the partition that I was booting from is greyed out (I can’t verify/repair the drive or the partition) and it has lost its name (reverted from ‘Boot’ to ‘disk0s1’) My initial thought was to use the boot0 error guide, but as far as I can tell, I’m not using a 4k drive. My setup is as follows: CPU: i7 3770k Motherboard: Gigabyte B75M-D3H Drives: Samsung 840 (Boot), Western Digital Blue 2.5” (1tb), 2* Western Digital Green 3.5 (3tb) - in a RAID 1 Mirror GPU: GTX660ti The strange thing is that I had a completely working Mountain Lion system for several months before this and the error started occurring with no hardware change at all. Chimera, [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], and OS upgrades clearly didn't help with anything. Basically, I’m down to always booting from a [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] drive and then selecting the proper drive to start the OS, so it sounds like something in the BIOS/Bootloader is screwy. I’ve been pulling my hair out over this for months, so if someone could help me out, I’d be so grateful. I’d be happy to post any logs or anything that would be helpful. When I try performing the normal boot0 fix (as outlined in the guide) it says that the drive was already unmounted. I ran the fix (0+2 in, 0+2 out), but when I went back to Disk Utility, it was unmountable. Now it's doing it every time I boot and it's driving me up the wall. Someone please help.
  2. Also, any idea what kind of connectors you're going to use on the final iteration? I'm gonna be super cramped for space, so having low-profile connectors is pretty important to me. When you get closer to finishing them, I'd like to talk to you about cable lengths and maybe just going straight to headers for the USB's.
  3. Both of those will work fine. Your back panel is identical to mine, so you should be good.
  4. That works great. Thanks a bunch for doing these! Since I'm soldering-retarded, I wasn't looking forward to having to fab my own back panel.
  5. Gotcha. I think that's how I'll send up doing it. Just out of curiosity, what is your time frame for the cables to be completed and shipped? I'm in no rush (not building for a few months), but I'd like to know so I can plan ahead.
  6. Single ethernet would be awesome. Gotcha on the positioning thing. I'll just try to find some pretty and low-profile DVI cables. For the actual connection to the back of the case (this part), did you buy the connector? If so, where would you get one for the 670, or did you fabricate it yourself? If it isn't too much trouble, could you take a picture of yours?
  7. I'd also love one of these when you make them... sign me up! Also, I've got a quick beginner's question for you: I'm going to be building up a G5 with a Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H and an EVGA GTX 670. From what I've that others have done, I like the idea of putting the motherboard near the back of the case, so that the GPU can be in its normal place (like gouedi did here). However, this leaves the rear I/O panel very, very close to the I/O panel on the motherboard. What would you suggest as an alternative connection for the GPU, or a way to better position things? zammykoo's method here is ok, but looks a little bit funky. Thoughts? Thanks in advance!
