    Haswell hackintoshable laptop

    Hey I'm using one right now! It's the system76 Kudo Professional (it's a clevo) with: Intel i7 4700MQ 16GB DDR3 (self upgrade) Samsung 840 EVO SSD (Self Upgrade) Intel HD 4600 GPU Azurewave AW-CE123H (the included wifi card isn't supported in OS X) Link: https://www.system76.com/laptops/model/kudp1 This is the only configuration I can vouch for, but good luck with another if you choose to buy this laptop and deviate! And I'm happy to say it's about 90-95% working. Sound is the only issue remaining (Getting headphones to work). I'd be more than happy to post my guide as well as all the required kexts/installs. Please feel free to ask me any questions. Native PowerManagement Needs Haswell Patched Kernel Native Brightness Sound (see above) Mic Webcam GPU USB Wifi (see above) Bluetooth Not tested: HDMI out eSATA sleep (seems to be working)

    Need Help. Good Build?

    Is that all of your budget? If not, I'd suggest beefing up your sytem for a better overall experience. I.E (installation and general use).

    An idea for a new Forum

    Just to get some possible feedback.
  4. Hello all, Don't take offense to this, but I want to start a new OSX86 forum. And I want it to be different. I'm tired of tonymacx86's (where I spend most of my time) stealing and strict ridiculous rules and I'm a bit put off by the sheer volume and clutter that is IM. OSXLatitude seems to be alright, but they also seem to want/stress the need for donations (granted they do provide a service). And that's where my *idea comes in, a forum for the community, by the community. Not for profit Ad free All site Donations (If I decide to accept them) will be split among project developers (Chameleon, Clover, etc) or to the Developer(s) of your choice. All users will be allowed to link their personal paypal email to their account, so in the case they provide top notch support, they have the possibility of being rewarded. Why help someone for hours just to help tonymac earn money? Where does that money go? Certainly not the developers. This site WILL NOT stress/incline you to donate in any way, because it's not about the money. If someone feels like they should pay for the help they've received, only those involved should receive those funds, not me. All original credit given. No name changing, stealing, or copyright. All original works (if any) will be open source, and I will encourage anyone who posts their works that they do the same. Everyone is welcome. I believe this fosters and environment that both encourages premium and engaging colaboration (the good kind) and allows the community to be a driving force behind project development through possible donations, bug reports, and just general feedback. What I'm proposing is the hopefull end to to second rate support and a forum that truely makes everyone feel at home. I'm willing to host this, but I would need interest and a crew. I will be updating this post, I just have class right now. Edit: Sorry for the {censored} formatting.
  5. I would start by extracting the DSDT straight from linux.
  6. Sorry guys, I have since bought an Intel CPU. But i tried to find a command line task that only ran just enough to make this fix work. I know it's not effiencent. That's why I gave up. -Dlambert

    [AMD] 10.7.3 Guide - Experimental Only

    So I installed on my AMD x6 system, and I got SL (10.6) running then mounted and installed iAtkos L2. The install failed (towards the end), but I still added kernel and installed chameleon. But now the kexts load, but then the PC reboots. Any ideas? GTX 560 ti, 16GB ram, ASUS M4A87TD EVO. Right before it reboots: Also there is some stuff about SMBIOS is there

    Going to test on my Phenom II x6 1055t @3.8Ghz w/ GTX 560. WIll post full specs later.
  13. Going to try on my AMD system with the same problem
  14. Any other scripts that will just cause a little activity? not alot
  15. All of you that have band choppy sound using VoodooHDA, Azalia, or even AppleHDA now have a fix! I've tried a TON of kexts, with no joy (yes even the idlehalt=0 kernel flag). But i came across a post with a simple command that fixes it. So i made it as a script and ran it as a login item, and now i have perfect sound!! The command, although I'm sure there are others you can use to keep your CPU a little busy is: yes > /dev/null Just make that into a script! and Enjoy! Then make it a login item! If I screwed up let me know! I added & after the command to make it run in the background, and then kill to close the terminal window. Feel free to post any other commands that can be used! (I'd like to improve upon this too!)
