  1. I made a Video guide for the easiest and fastest installation available right now. Using a PKG for creating the USB installation drive and [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] for yosemite for post-install procedures. Special guest: Doggee My specs: Asus P9X79 Pro Motherboard Intel 3930k i7 processor MSI GTX 770 16GB RAM Complete success and stable system since Lion 10.7
  2. Video Tutorial - OSX 10.10 Yosemite - ASUS P9X79 pro

    I think that both of you need to load the fakesmc.kext. Thats the main reason for kernel panics
  3. Video Tutorial - OSX 10.10 Yosemite - ASUS P9X79 pro

    Hello. Be sure to try the boot arg as i show on the video. You may need npci=3000 instead of npci=0x2000 or PCIRootUID=0 instead of 1. If you use ati VGA or unsupported nvidia you will also need to add GraphicsEnabler=No on the boot args
  4. Watch here my tutorial guide for installing Yosemite on Asus P9X79 pro motherboard; Post any questions here.

  7. HP ProBook 4520s iATKOS S3 QE/CI

    Hey Dragunov whats up? I am trying to install snow on 4520s. My configuration is: 2.53ghz i5 (460m) busratio=19 with the 530v I tried almost all available distros. I have succeeded only with retail installation (using latest [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] with GraphicsEnabler=No arch=i386 busratio=19) and iatkos 10.6.3 However i can get the usb ports working. Its very annoying. I solved the problem with patching the dsdt but for some reason i cant do that anymore. I get error in dsdt patcher. Can you tell me what packages you select in iatkos installation? I think that if we get the 530v working 4520 will be a great macbook pro.

  9. My hackintosh: Intel Core i7 in a Powermac case

    You can see the pics if you right click them and choose to show them. They just cant be embedded i dont know why...
  10. So i got bored of my old Thermaltake case: And I decided to buy a new one. But I could not find any decent original pc case. In my opinion there are only two kind of them: The "Extreme-Poser" cases and the "Why-buy-this-piece-of {censored}" cases. I always admired powermac's and mac pro's cases. They are beautiful and elegant. I also run a hackintosh OSX leopard on my computer so I thought that it would be very cool to set up my pc in a Powermac G5 or a mac pro case. So I bought from Ebay a mint Powermac G5 case and I modded it so it could host an ATX motherboard and the rest of my hardware. My PC has the following parts: Motheboard: MSI X58 PLATINUM Processor: INTEL CORE I7-920 2.66 GHZ (overclocked @ 3GHZ) Power Supply: TAGAN TG500-U88 BZ PIPEROCK SERIES 500W VGA: GAINWARD BLISS 9800 GX2 1GB Memory: 2X OCZ OCZ3X1333LV3GK 3GB (6GB Total) HDD 1: OCZ OCZSSD2-1VTX60G SOLID STATE 60GB SATA 2 VERTEX HDD 2: WESTERN DIGITAL RAPTOR WD740ADFD 74GB 10000RPM SATA HDD 3: WESTERN DIGITAL 500GB WD5000AAJS CAVIAR SE SATA2 Click on the images if you want to view them at 12Mpx resolution. So here is the case as I bought it: i used an old Pentium 3 ATX mobo for my tests so I would not put in danger my MSI. Firstly I removed all the parts (seperator, fans, cables, HDD case) so I could work in convenience: Some TORX-8 and 11 screws for the seperator and some Philips one for the HDD case and the fan. So here it is the case completely emty: Then i removed the screw bases so I could put them in ATX positions. That was really easy. Just pulled them with my pliers and they were out: Using the P3 mobo I marked with a pencil the places that the screw bases should be. I also replaced the dots with arrows so I wouldn't stick them over the pencil's graphite. The glue I used requires very clean surfaces. I also checked them with a ruler so they were aligned and sticked them in their positions: I did the same thing with the other 3 screws. So the first test with the motherboard on its position revealed me the 2 main things i had to mod at the case, so everything would fit normaly. As you can see at the following picture, the connections at the back of the motherboard are not on the correct holes. The only thing I could do is to cut the case so it would have a big common hole for all connectors: So here I am cutting with a metal-saw! After a lot of effort.... Here I used a rasp to correct the details in the shape. The next major issue was the seperator. It would block the motherboard but I had to use it because it supports the DVD drive: I did the measurements and then cutted it with the metal-saw so the mobo would fit under it. (ok not 100% straight sawing but who cares... its not a visible part!) So we are done with the Hard work. Then I placed the parts inside the case. First was the Power Supply: It fits perfectly at the bottom of the case. Very steady. The cable enters the case through the power plug's hole. Then I placed the motherboard (thanx a lot ATX format - every screw base was in the correct position) Then came the VGA. I was a bit anxious before getting the case, because the 9800 GX2 is enormous, but the case is very spacious and wide, so there were no problems. All the connectors came in their possitions (i should have sawed more deeply, but even this way you can connect everything) Powermac's HDD case is perfect for me. It fits nicely at the bottom, and its very steady too: I removed the metal cover and then I placed my SSD over the raptor: Then I installed a DVD: The slot is always open but... what can i do? Then an on/off button from my old case's reset button Checked everything was in place, and closed the case: I also installed 2 9cm fans on the back and one 12cm on the front so the air keeps flowing and the temperatures stays low. I am using hackontosh a lot time. Here is a screenshot of my hackintosh scoring 10172 points at geekbench: Thats it folks! Please tell me what do you think of my project!
  11. Hi i recently bought MSI Wind. I am a hackintosh user for a while so i thought I should make a VERY easy video for the begginers (or not) showing the entire process! Here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVXSXXpQyrY Original soundtrack is taken from apple's advertisements. Tributed performed and produced by me. Hope this is going to be sticky one day! Good luck to you all. Thanx the member of the forum for their help.
  12. I fixed it! I just installed the FInal version of voodoo frome here: http://code.google.com/p/xnu-dev/ And now x-cpu reads corectly the speed and the multiplier, even with overclock. With overclocked CPU at 3Ghz I get 8310 Geekbench points as an 3ghz mac pro. Cheers guys!
  13. The multiplier in BIOS is correct (as always) at 20. Even i change the CPUs speed from BIOS its not recognized from any software, and the x-Cpu keeps telling that the multiplier is 20, so it gives me 2000Mhz only. I really cant imagine where the problem is!
  14. You are right guys but i dont get it. How can I flag busratio=20 and it gives me only 15? I have changed the clock from the bios from 133 to 150 and nothing changed on cpu-x so i think it is its fault. Any idea?
  15. Thanx for the tip friend! Just did it and it boots like a pro! Fixed dmg mount kernel crashes too. Here are the geekbench results! http://browse.geekbench.ca/geekbench2/view/98736 5508 Points! Right in the middle of mac pro 2.8 and 3.0: http://www.primatelabs.ca/blog/2008/06/mac...ance-june-2008/ Pretty good for its cost dont you think??? :D
