  1. Yeah, that didn't work so well. Does anyone happen to have step-by-step instructions on how to do this?
  2. So the web driver corrects whatever the Security Update 2015-006 does?
  3. Hey guys, I'm running a Mac Pro 5,1 with a flashed Nvidia GTX 770 on Mountain Lion 10.8.5. The last time I installed a security update (Security Update 2015-4, I believe), I got an error screen upon restarting. From what I understand the build number was changed. Anyway, I'm curious: is there any way to apply the security update and sidestep the same headache? Thanks.

    Hardware compatibility concerns...

    Nothing, eh
  5. I too would like a confirmation on whether or not it works with Final Cut Studio 2. Also, if it's not too inappropriate, are there any demonoid invites available or are requests totally ignored.. If so, please send it to mcgurk67 AT yahoo DOT com (I agree it's lame to include an e-mail with the request but I wanted to expedite the transaction (if there's to be one))
  6. Hey guys, I'm planning on putting together an OSx86 system and I need to make sure it would be able to run the way I'd need it to before I do. So to begin with, the hypothetical specs: motherboard: ASUS P5LD2 (Intel 945P) processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E6420 Controe 2.13GHz video: HIS HighTech H180GTO256DVN Radeon x1800GTO 256MB (I'm hoping for QE/CI to work (this particular graphics card wasn't listed in the compatibility guide)) RAM: Kingston 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) hard drive: Seagate Barracuda ES ST3250620NS 250GB 7200RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s It can pretty much be assumed the rest would work properly. For software, I'd like to be able to run Final Cut Studio 2, Adobe's CS2 and 3, and Blender. I know this question'll bring a lot of negative comments about reading through the compatability guide and probably some capitalization, but I've read through them and though they may have a pretty trustworthy determination of whether or not one component is compatible, it doesn't cover multiple components at all. Reliability is my primary concern; I don't want to drop money on something that would be unreliable or have to be constantly updated with difficult-to-find patches. Whoa, I just read through that and I sound like some kind of poorly acclimated cyborg. But it gets the point across, I think. Thanks.
  7. I've spent quite a bit a time there already, and though it's useful as far as general operating system compatibility goes, it doesn't say anything about software. I don't want to sound as if I don't appreciate the suggestion; I do. But from my limited exposure to x86 as related to Final Cut Pro (in this thread, to be precise), it seems there are more considerations than I had initially thought. Getting the operating system up and running well is fine, but I'm worried about having to always be making little file changes and other tinkerings to simply be able to install a program I'd like to use.
  8. Hey guys, (I would have posted these questions as a response to an existing thread, but the ones I've seen haven't been answered as definitively as I'd need them to be to invest in the system I'd like to build.) Ahem, so, I'm thinking of putting together an Athlon-powered system to run OS X 10.4.8 and eventually Leopard (in a dual boot with Windows XP). Here, more specifically, are the components I'd like to use: Motherboard: ASUS M2N-E Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ Brisbane 2.5GHz (Socket AM2) Video Card: Sapphire Radeon X1900GT (PCI-E) RAM: Kingston "HyperX", 2 x 1GB 240-pin DDR2 SDRAM HDD: Seagate Barracuda ES (320 GB) (and an optical drive and such to be determined) I suppose what I'm wondering most (and what's been the primary impetus for this thread) was how well (and easily) the above hardware would get along with the software I plan on using. The software: -Final Cut Pro 5 (and above) -Compressor -Adobe CS2 and CS3 suites -Blender 3D -Adobe After Effects (eventually) -Shake (eventually) -Motion (-iTunes -Safari) And by "getting along" I mean not having to edit some text file or install a patch to acknowledge every piece of software I'd like to use. Is this too optimistic an aspiration? Thanks in advance.
