    Fresh install - where my personal data came from?

    I am 101% sure I did not! I have my day off tomorrow, I might try to make a new install just for the sake of it. I will report back. Cheers.

    Fresh install - where my personal data came from?

    I ment AppleID. Anyway, apparently because of the underlying algorithm, an automatic generation of a SMBios on the same machine will always give the same serial.
  3. OK this is weird. INTRO: I have been on Sierra for more than 6 months. Everything was working smoothly but I fried my mobo (GA B85M-D3H). It was sent to Gigabyte's service and it came repaired. I plugged my SSD to my repaired card only to find out that I was unable to boot. Of course it was my mistake because while waiting for my motherboard I used another one temporarily, which lacked DVI so I was using the VGA input on my monitor. I was running Xubuntu from another HDD leaving my Sierra SSD unplugged. When I received my repaired one, I was so excited to finally boot back to my Hackintosh, that I connected both DVI and VGA cables... On top of that, my DVI cable was damaged, so my Sierra was outputting to VGA therefore it couldn't boot without dropping some injects. Being eager to have everything back, I took the decision to do a fresh install. THE WEIRD: When I finished the installation, I chose not to create an Apple account. Also, I used a new Clover config file with new Serial etc. App Store informs me that I have 3 updates available. "Big deal" I thought, probably a new version of iTunes etc. But one of the updates is about a very specific scientific program that I had installed before my new and fresh Sierra!!! On top of that, the email address I had used to create an Apple account in my previous install is already filled in! How is this possible? EDIT: I double checked my old and new Clover configs and the Serial number is the same on both files! So my question was answered. If any moderators read this, please lock it.

    Sierra won't boot after motherboard repair.

    The thing is that I don't see any ACPI tables anymore on the EFI partition!

    Sierra won't boot after motherboard repair.

    No, I manually deleted the contents of EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/xxx ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In Clover->Options I selected Drop "SSDT" " Cpu0Ist" 1337 and now i get the following:

    Sierra won't boot after motherboard repair.

    Hello. Already did that. I booted to my Ubuntu on a separate HDD, mounted my Sierra SSD and cleared all files in EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched. Still nothing.
  7. Hello to everyone. Two months ago my motherboard got fried. It's a Gigabyte B85-D3H rev 2.0. It was sent to Gigabyte's service and it was repaired (I noticed some different capacitors on it). The thing is that now my Sierra installation won't boot. I changed the bios settings to recommended ones but at vain. Please see the attached photo. Any suggestions?
  8. Thank you. I will post back when my mobo arrives (about 20 days from now).
  9. Thanks. You mean doing that by booting in safe mode first, right? By the way, I hadn't patched DSDT since my system was steady and I didn't had the time to fully study the Clover wiki. Does that make things easier or is it irrelevant?
  10. I managed to fry my Gigabyte (B85, ALC892, Realtek LAN) http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=5013#sp My system was running Sierra with Clover. A truly rock steady system. I am waiting for a replacement of my Mobo. Since the store I bought it doesn't sell it anymore I have the following options: ASRock Z97 Anniversary Edition (Z97, ALC887, Intel LAN) http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z97%20Anniversary/?cat=Specifications Gigabyte GA Z97P-D3 (Z97, ALC887, Realtek LAN) http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=5361#sp If I would like to add a little money I could climb to: ASRock Z97 PRO4 (Z97, ALC892, Intel LAN) http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z97%20Pro4/?cat=Specifications I want to keep my current installation. So my question is if there is a way to safe boot to my new system and then change whatever necessary so that my hackintosh boots again with my new motherboard? Thanks. P.S. My CPU is Intel i5. I don't have a graphics card.

    Clover vs Ozmosis...

    Any more info on these so that I can study?

    Clover vs Ozmosis...

    Thanks for your post. Ozmosis lacks (or at least I haven't found it yet) a solid walkthrough, something that not only tells you "pick your kext, compress it, put it there" but to make you understand why you do what you do. My mobo has DualBIOS so I will try it sometime.

    Clover vs Ozmosis...

    That was interesting. I see you are a developer. Can you please tell us more about symbol-based patches? As far as performance goes, I thought I read somewhere (not sure thought) that there is no difference in performance and boot times.

    Glad you made it! I always have my Clover stick! Which kext are you referring to?

    Clover vs Ozmosis...

    Thanks for the answer, it dealt with another of my concerns too (better ACPI choices to avoid extra kexts). I made up my mind, I'll stick with Clover. Next step is to do some research about tweaking DSDT.
