  1. I followed this guide and I ended up with a 9.4 GB ISO.... I know it's meant for VMWare etc installations, but how would I cut down on all the extras like printer drivers and languages? I'm trying to make a DVD burnable/bootable ISO. I'm currently trying to dd a USB stick I made as one of my attempts to ISO, but it's going to be too large for a standard single layer 4.7 GB DVD-R. Thanks in advance.
  2. ASUS ZenBook (UX510UW-RB71) Ever Been Hackintoshed?

    With all due respect did you read any of my post? I said I was well aware that I'd have to disable the NVIDIA GPU, but you didn't confirm with me if you've hackintoshed this particular model. Laptops can have their own quirks that desktop do not have.
  3. Hey all. I asked this very question in a thread on (only mentioning this site in the context of my question here, since I know your history with them) TonyMacx86, and their moderator RehabMan, despite my asking him not to, only redirected me to the laptop FAQ / install guide. So, I'll ask here. NO I'm not asking for TMx86 support. Just because I mention them doesn't mean I'm looking for help with their way of doing things. Has anyone here attempted to hackintosh the ASUS ZenBook (UX510UW-RB71)? I do not have this laptop yet, so please don't do what "they" do and redirect me to a guide I cannot use. Here are its specs: ASUS ZenBook UX510UW-RB71 Intel Skylake Core i7-6500U (2.5GHz - 3.1GHz) Processor 15.6" Full HD (1920 x 1080) Anti-Glare Display 16GB DDR4 2133MHz Memory 1TB Hard Drive NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M (4GB) GDDR5 Graphics Card Wireless 802.11AC + Bluetooth 4.1 Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit) Illuminated Chiclet Keyboard I'm aware that it's got Optimus graphics, and I'm also aware that Optimus as of my posting this thread (June 2017) does not work under Mac OS X on non Apple hardware. I know I'd have to disable via DSDT the NVIDIA GPU and resort to the HD 520 iGPU. I'm also aware that the Intel WiFi/BT card would have to be swapped out if I want it functional under OS X. All I'm asking is WHETHER OR NOT (sorry for the caps but the TMx86 ppl are so inept when a question like this is asked) ANYONE HERE has ATTEMPTED to hackintosh this particular model of laptop? Thanks, Shiggitay
  4. Hello all. I used to have a a mostly fully working Hackintosh system, but due to the mobo's lack of power management (even patched) I gave up on it, and I swapped out to a different one that's considered by the community to be more Hackintosh compatible and suchlike. Here are my new machine's specs: Motherboard: AsRock Z77 Pro 3 (I don't know what BIOS revision) CPU: Intel Core i7 3770k @ 4.4 GHz with water cooling RAM: 16 GB DDR3 @ 1600 MHz Storage: 1x 1.5TB, 1x 1 TB and 2x 2TB, 1x 120GB SSD for Linux GPU: Zotac nVidia GeForce GTX 460 Amp'd Edition 1GB GDDR5 I believe.. the card is from 2010 Two 1080p 24" Displays I was able to launch the installer and successfully install ML with both displays active but my issue is that I can't get the system to boot up natively unless in Safe Mode (boot flag -x), though I guess that isn't quite native. I know my GPU is older, but on the aforementioned other mobo (now being used in my other desktop system that serves as my HTPC, of which I'd like to reattempt to Hackintosh soon) I was able to get my it working just fine... I think I had to get its device ID or something and put into my chameleon.boot.plist? Would my best bet be to get a GTX 470 or higher? Is getting this older GPU working a waste of time and effort? I intend to use OS X as a dedicated video editing 'workstation' as I want to have it triple booting with Linux (running now) and Windows 7 or maybe I'll try Windows 8.1. I've read peoples' success stories who have my same board, but they flashed a patched BIOS. I'm weary of doing that since I bricked a previous board I had and I don't want that to happen again. Any help would be appreciated greatly.
