    New OS X compatible motherboard -> QUO

    Tab functionality does not appear to work to change the system time. (H20.XMAS) Can this be set via the shell? EDIT: I solved my problem by setting the system date via Terminal in the installer using the "date" command.

    Z77MXQUOAOS.H2O.167X-MASS on the wiki does not match the checksum and is dated 2015/12/24 I read there is a version of this patched for Sierra. Most links in this thread are expired. Can someone point me to the correct location?
  3. True. By budget, I meant current 2016/2017 tech that will run 10.12 well for web browsing, non-graphics intensive gaming, etc.
  4. Good stuff. Im looking to buy mid-january for a feb 1 build date. Ill post back with the results.
  5. I would love to hear what board/cpu combos people are using these days for budget 10.12 builds.

    Joe75 is right. You should autograph it!

    I was having various sleep state issues, as well as issues with the Sata II ports with my MSI N760 TF 2GD5/OC installed. Worked fine without discrete graphics. Overall performance was great. I placed my rig in a work environment under heavy load with three months of uptime. Stellar performance. With 894M my sleep and Sata port problems are gone. Works great.

    I have no experience with Preinstallation Environment installs. I would consider researching "Windows PE UEFI" for how to install. Just make sure that the install steps do not format your drive, if same is OSX install.

    See post #856 Consider only plugging in the hard drive you want to install to and the USB flash drive. Reflash to 828 to clear settings, enter BIOS and restore defaults, check version from shell. See post #856 for information on the aforementioned items.
  10. As Braddman mentioned, a PC can do anything a Mac can do. That said, lets compare Apples to apples. If by Standard PC you are referring to "Dell/HP", than a Mac and Dell/HP with similar specs will perform the similarly. You don't necessarily need a $10,000 HP workstation for the work you do; however, the bottom of the barrel Intel i3 machine might not do the trick. An SSD, or multiple SSDs provide substantial benefits. Consider at a minimum, SSD for OS/applications separate from your storage and scratch. Discrete graphics do not need to be excessively high-end. Although discrete graphics improves performance, Photoshop and Illustrator depend heavily on your CPU. Crunching video is where powerful discrete graphics really shine. You will find money spent on discrete graphics is well spent for rendering video. Although discrete graphics improves performance, Photoshop and Illustrator depend heavily on your CPU. Each instance would be fighting for it. Price out an iMac and then a comparable PC with decent monitor. In a business environment, running OSX on non-apple hardware as primary workstations could easily open a can of worms. An inadvertent update could cause issues. If you are not very familiar with the concepts of running OSX on non-apple hardware, than I would shy away from the idea. Consider that if you have moved to Creative Cloud, each seat gets two installs. You can also use the same license for PC or Mac. Don't take this the wrong way but consider your pricing structure for work. I have experienced numerous photography, design, and video production houses charging next to nothing. In each instance, they nearly doubled their rates and lost 40-50 percent of their customers. That enabled them to purchase better equipment and retain quality staff. Consider picking up an Intel i7 PC and giving it a try via windows. A mix in your studio might not be that bad.

    Put your full system specs in your signature. Ensure you have an error free copy of the BIOS.Create a Firmware/Patch flash drive Format a second flash drive FAT32 and label it firmware Copy the latest firmware to the flash drive Compare checksum for consistency. Open a terminal window and type the following (replace INSERTFIRMWARENAME.ROM with the actual filename). Compare the notes to the checksum provided.: mds /Volumes/firmware/INSERTFIRMWARENAME.ROM Remove non-essential componentsRemove all non-essential components, including your desecrate graphics. System should be CPU, RAM, Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor, primary hard drive, and motherboard speaker (Front Panel Header). Re-Flash your firmware Plug your firmware flash drive in Start your computer and enter the BIOS using the del key Select Q-Flash Select the desired firmware Upon completion, system should reboot twice On the second startup, you should be presented with the built-in shell (Only if you followed the previous step and have not connected your hard drive.) At the shell prompt type the following to confirm your firmware flash was successful: bdmesg -b Now restart and enter the BIOS. On startup, press the DELETE key to enter the BIOS. Do the only the following: Restore Optimized Defaults If you have 1600 memory modules, you may adjust the Extreme Memory Profile (X.M.P.) settings​ Patch Audio Download PatchALC892 (https://www.dropbox.com/s/jrhqpr74e44etqc/PatchALC892.zip) Unzip and place the PatchALC892 folder in the root of your install partition Run the following in Terminal. Press enter after every line: sudo -s cd /PatchALC892/109 ./PatchALC892.sh Restart and confirm working audio. (Certain updates will overwrite the patched file. You will loose audio and will need to run the patch again.) If you are still experiencing kernel panics, consider uninstalling all files related to your firewire audio, as well as those non-apple kexts that I see you have installed. If the KPs stop, then that is your problem.

    Correct. I set it up but have not used it. Ill run some tests later today.

    Can you check to ensure that your changes were made? In Terminal: nvram -p
