  1. GTX 860M

    I will check into that, but to be honest dude I own a real apple.. Macbook pro 15 inch, Im not cheap. I am not doing this to get a cheap version of an apple computer. I want a great gaming experieance. Most of my games run off OSX, so I want to use that for my games. I want the power of the nvidia 860m.. Apple does not currently have a video card in any of thier laptop lines that even comes close to matching that card. That is my goal. Understand now ? I thought I was more clear than that before Thanks for the info though, I will see if I cant match up any of the ID's
  2. GTX 860M

    I have the G750m-bsi7n23 I didnt think it was an optimus card ? So any card that is Optimus Enabled is a no go for the OSX86 Project ? Thats a bummer! I wish Apple would actually build macbooks with better graphic cards than the intel-{censored} cards they have... I so NEED to get rid of Windows lol
  3. GTX 860M

    Has Anyone got the GTX 860M to work in any capacity in any version of OSX To date ? am curious if its even worth attempting to dump OSX ON my Asus Laptop.. THanks

  9. Ok I need a bit of help here. I have been trying and trying for months now. I am not an average computer user so this is starting to get quite a bit frustrating here!! I have been trying to get OSX installed on a pc for quite some time now. I am a gamer and I hate windows.. Most of the games I play actually have a mac client so since I frecking LOVE OSX I want to be able to play it on a decent system. I have had manny laptops / desktops over the last few years, but about 5 months ago I started to attempt to install OSX86 on any of the units. I had both AMD And Intel, no luck on nothing. Well the past is the past, I just recently aquired 2 beauties which I love First is an actual Mac.. Macbook Pro core 2 duo laptop. A bit older, will do perfectly for work and browsing but not for gaming. Unfortunatly I need a gaming laptop and the current best of the best macbook just wont cut it .. So I got an ASUS G750 perfect for gaming... Now here is where the problem lies. I have been trying to follow 2 guides mostly ( Have also scoured the net for others to get tips and bits off off) but the 2 main ones are: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/280756-guide-the-all-in-one-guide-to-vanilla-os-x-including-chameleon-dsdt-for-beginners-updated-for-mavericks/ and http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/296469-noobs-guide-how-to-install-os-x-mavericks-from-scratch-in-progress/ So far it seems pretty simple to me ( I am a technician so I understand everything) Now even though I just stated I am a technician, I can be stumped This may be a simple solution (I havent really worked professionaly in the IT Field in 3 years so Im starting to get a bit rusty) but I just cant see it !! I am stuck at booting the unit into the bootloader. I got my USB All set perfectly, got the install set and everything.. but the ASUS Laptop will not boot to the usb drive I had created using the real mac. And before anyone says so, I do know how to set the BIOS and Boot Order / Priority.. Every time I select the USB Drive, it just goes right into Windows. I removed the Windows HDD from the laptop and then it produced INvalid Boot Disk error... So something is going wrong with the Bootloader on the USB.... I have no clue.. Any ideas ?
  10. Flash Drive

    So question.... I made a .dmg Image of my osx 10.6 disc just incase i lost or destroyed the disc... Well I Destroyed the Disc.. So I was wondering if there was a way to put the .dmg on a flash drive, use the MagicMod CD (I think thats whats its called ?) To read the Flash Drive as where the osx is installed and utilize that ? I really dont feel like going to buy Duel Layer DVD's lol

  14. Ok so I know this is a newb question so bare with me please I have been out of the game for a few years for sure, I remember the last build I used was one from 10.5, I can see lots have changed. Well I just built a new rig, and was thinking of putting a build on a partition, however I cannot find any information on any build(s) I remember there used to be a topic that listed all the current build(s) and thier respected chipset type.. However I cannot find this information. I remember a few were iAKTOS iDeneb etc etc I cant find any of the new ones out there, not even via my "source' to aquire.. So has something changed to aquire a build since I was last here or am I just stupid and am looking for the wrong thing ?? For those that are curious to the specs of the new rig there they are! AMD FX 8120 3.1ghz 8 Core Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3 system-board AMD RD9x0 Chipset AMD SB910/950 southbridge AMD ATI Radeon HD 6850 video card 8gb DDR3 Any help would be appreated, Thanks!
