  1. I've built a hackintosh running Mountain Lion Server and installed a HighPoint RAID 640L card in it. I've also added 4 x 4TB ST4000DM000 hard drives. All had been running fine for about a year, but now I've got RAID errors happening: B 0 W 08/12/15 08:56:25 Array 'RAID_5_0' rebuilding failed. B 0 I 08/12/15 10:54:45 Array 'RAID_5_0' rebuilding started. B 0 E 08/12/15 18:50:05 Disk 'ST4000DM000-1F2168-Z301RJK9' at Controller1-Channel3 failed.

Could this be a false warning? At this point I'd appreciate some advice - in the mean time I'll be pulling data off of it like there's no tomorrow

    OS X on the HP dv6-3019wm ?

    I'm not too up on all this yet, but for the cost of a new drive I'd be tempted to do a fresh install on one. Keep the old drive if it's that important - unless you want to be able to still access those partitions.
  3. I was looking to use Kakewalk for the installation along with my OSX disc... Any thoughts? Will I need [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 2.0 as well as this? I'm an absolute noob at Hackintosh world, I've lurked for the last six months, and used this link as a guideline as I'd like it to do Software updates etc: http://hishamkhalifa.com/?p=243 Thanks
  4. Hi, I'm looking to build a new digital audio workstation and am looking at the following spec. Could someone tell me if I should be looking at different hardware, or will this be an easy install? I just wanted to check before I start digging deep into my pockets as this is a fairly expensive machine otherwise 1 x Intel Core i7 930 2.8GHz Socket 1366 8MB L3 Cache OEM Processor 1 x Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5 Intel X58Socket 1366 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard 1 x Corsair 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz XMS3 Dominator Memory CL8(8-8-8--24) for i7 Motherboards 2 x Seagate ST31500341AS 1.5TB Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm 32MB Cache - OEM 2 x Plexus Serial ATA 2.0 SATA 7-pin Cable (Red) 61cm / 24" 1 x Freecom Data Recovery Service For Any Hard Drive 1 x Asus 9500GT 1GB DDR2 DVI VGA HDMI PCI-E Graphics Card 4 x Samsung TS-H653G DVD-RW SATA Optical Drive - OEM 1 x Coolermaster Elite 330 Case With Coolermaster eXtreme Power 460W PSU *SPECIAL OFFER* 1 x StarTech 3.5in Black Multi Port Panel for Front Drive Bay (USB, eSATA, FireWire & audio)
