  1. Using Clover and trying to install El capitan from a USB flash drive prepared using the terminal command listed elsewhere. Boots up all the way to install screen and seriously pretends to install progress bar and all, while the HDD snoozes merrily. No drive activity LED at all. As the installer finished it reboots and I can see there's nothing on the drive. Several attempts, same results. Completely different hardware, same results. Different USB same results. Same thing happened a year back on Yosemite. I don't remember how I solved it. The one common thing is the El Capitan download from Apple. So friends any ideas and suggestions please.

  6. Hallo liebe Community, ich bin hier wenn ich ehrlich bin so langsam wirklich am verzwifeln. Gleich vorne weg ich bin zwar kein ahnungsloser Anwender aber die Installation eines Bootloaders in mein System raubt mir den letzten Nerv! Zu meinen Spezifikationen: Asus K56CB Intel i5-3337U Ivy-Bridge 750GB HDD Sata 8GB Ram Nvidia 740M GPU Intel HD 4000 Graphics und so weiter... Um es direkt zu erwähen, ich habe alles so geregelt das mein Mountain Lion 10.8.3 auch trotz Optimus Technologie problemlos läuft. So nun zum eigentl. Problem... Ich habe ein UEFI System und schaffe es glaub auch mit 1000 weiteren Anleitungen nicht einen Bootloader so zu installieren das nach einem Neustart ohne BootCD nicht die Meldung "Insert proper boot device and restart" kommt. Ich weiß das viele sagen nutze keinen Chameleon Bootloader auf UEFI Systemen aber selbst diesen habe ich in den letzten Tagen ausprobiert. Nun an euch... was kann man denn bitte so enorm falsch machen das er einfach keinen Bootloader schluckt... Im Bios habe ich auch schon etliche Einstellungen ausprobiert doch es scheitert immer an der selben Stelle. Fast Boot ist aus, Launch CSM ist eingeschaltet und Launch PX oPRom oder wie das genau heißt ist ausgeschalten.( Hab alle Kombinationen schon druchprobiert ) Kann man denn irgendwie seine UEFI Partition so zerschießen das sie nicht mehr funktioniert?! Ich weiß nicht mehr weiter. Ich hoffe ihr könnt mir helfen! Meine momentane BIOS Einstellungen und die Oberfläche allgemein könnt ihr euch im Anhang betrachten. Vielen lieben Dank, denn ansonsten rennt das Teil wie eine Eins!
  7. Hi I'm in the middle of a Mac Pro (2006 - 2008) conversion and I'm stuck getting parts for a particular problem. I want to retain the four hot-swap drive bays. Apple connect the data and power supply to the four drivebays using an SAS connector for the data and an eight pin connector for the power, both directly connected to the logic board. This is the end of the drive bay wiring loom that connect the bays to the logic board: I need a solution to plug into the data connection and convert this to four SATA cables to connect to an ATX motherboard. I can modify the power connection easily to two four pin Molex type connections. Anything suggested would be nice if it was available in the UK or Europe. If anyone has done this conversion please post solutions, tips, suppliers ETC. Thanks for any suggestions or comments.
  8.

  11. Hey there guys, i got this LSI 3ware (Escalade) 9550SX(U)-8LP Controller here and i thought about tinkering around with it. Because of the specs of the mainboard i am using, i am not yet sure if i can switch to a different controller card, also hey, i got this one here already... it'd be just awesome to be able to use it. For the moment i have the system running halfway smoothly and it will be still some days until my next task (the gfx card, also not that easy on this mobo...) is up, so i was wondering... Has anyone tried this particular model? Any chance on info, or that someone got it to work yet? I've seen some threads regarding various alike cards, but then when following their steps it doesn't seem to be fruitful. What i have done so far is to try to get it to work was to look through various posts indicating that installing the codeset 9.5.3 in addition with the AMCC3ware9000.kext (or better said the AMCC3ware900064.kext) would do the trick as it is said that most of the ids are alike. Oh, the id for this particular card is 13c1:1003 I'm not quite keen with all this to be honest, but then i tried out osx86 every now and then for some time and achieved most of my selfset goals, but this time it might be a little over my head... So uhm, thanks for your input!
  12. Hola, tengo una duda: Mi placa tiene 2 puertos SATA blancos con especificación Sata 600. Tengo 3 discos que tendria que conectar, 2 para hacer un Raid 0 y un SSD con el sistema. La duda es si conecto el Raid 0 a dos puertos de 300 y el SSD al de 600 o lo monto al reves. Actualmente tengo dos discos de 250Gb a los SATA normales en Raid 0 y el SSD al de 600, pero he pedido dos discos de 2T a 600 y ahora me faltaria un conector. Algún entendido que pueda recomendarme se agradece. Un saludo.-
  13. I found how to have your system's SATA controller information displayed correctly within the Serial-ATA section of the System Profiler / System Information pages. As long as you can obtain the Device ID and Vendor ID of what the system has, then it should be fairly simple. Procedure: 1) Use a program like lspci or System Info to list the devices. 2) Find all SATA storage devices, making sure each unique combination is recorded. 3) Proceed to copy AppleAHCIPort.kext to your favorite working directory from /System/Library/Extensions, as well as copying the original version to a location separate from this working directory. You may need to put the original back into /System/Library/Extensions if there is a problem later. 4) Once in the Finder, open the kext with Show Package Contents and navigate to the Contents directory, expanding it to open the internal Info.plist. 5) Once editing Info.plist with your favorite xml editor, navigate to the IOKitPersonalities section and add the necessary details for each SATA controller. Start by copying an existing entry that closely resembles the details for the added controller. I used one that already has the IOPCIPrimaryMatch sub-key. After that, proceed to modify the main key for the controller you are adding. For example, my system has both a Marvell 88SE9172 and AMD SB950. I made the sub-keys immediately below IOKitPersonalities my own invention, following the pattern of the already existing ones. For example, I entered: Marvell88SE9172AHCI AMDSB9x0AHCI 6) The Chipset Name sub-key is modified to something meaningful. The vendor name sub-key is pre-pended in the Memory section, so it may as well be absent in this value string. For example, mine are: 88SE9172 SATA AHCI Controller SB950 SATA AHCI Controller 7) Modify the IOPCIPrimaryMatch to match the Device ID and Vendor ID within your system. For example, mine are: 0x91721b4b 0x43911002 8) Finally, update the the Vendor Name to match the SATA Controller vendor within your system. For example, mine are: Marvell AMD 9) Save this working copy Info.plist to your working directory. 10) Copy this Info.plist into the AppleAHCIPort.kext | Contents directory within /System/Library/Extensions, replacing the Info.plist already there. 11) Answer the prompt for authenticating this replacement. 12) Use your favorite method to update the /System/Library/Extensions caches and permissions to be sure all is well. I use Kext Wizard, since I get tired of typing all of the commands within Terminal. 13) Reboot. 14) Inspect and confirm the new SATA controller details are now showing in the System Profiler / System Information | Hardware | Serial-ATA section. Note that no binary files are affected by this addition to the AppleAHCIPort.kext | Contents | Info.plist. Here is what the raw xml looks like inside Info.plist. The IOKitPersonalities and MCP79AHCI keys are shown for reference to assist understanding that the new controller entries have been placed alphabetically under the IOKitPersonalities key. The entries I made look like: AMD SB 950 SATA Controller Entry: <key>IOKitPersonalities</key> <dict> <key>AMDSB9x0AHCI</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Chipset Name</key> <string>SB950 SATA AHCI Controller</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AppleAHCI</string> <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> <string>0x43911002</string> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>2000</integer> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> <key>Vendor Name</key> <string>AMD</string> </dict> . . . . . . Marvell 88SE9172 SATA Controller Entry: <key>Marvell88SE9172AHCI</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.apple.driver.AppleAHCIPort</string> <key>Chipset Name</key> <string>88SE9172 SATA AHCI Controller</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AppleAHCI</string> <key>IOPCIPrimaryMatch</key> <string>0x91721b4b</string> <key>IOProbeScore</key> <integer>2000</integer> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> <key>Vendor Name</key> <string>Marvell</string> </dict> <key>MCP79AHCI</key> <dict> . . . . . . I did this for both the retail Snow Leopard and Lion installations on my FX-8350 system.
  14. I decided to also do the last major PATA/SATA controller. Mainly JMicron. The current version is fully Yosemite optimized with everything updated. It builds without a single warning. It fully supports any JMB36x matching following description: 0x2360197b&fff0ffff Matching following PCI class: 0x01010000&0xffff0000 Github repo: https://github.com/andyvand/JMicronATA JMicronATA.zip
  15. Hey guys I just wanted to share with you all my speed test my new samsung 830. I made a youtube video which you can check out here: https://www.youtube.com/user/BRKHD1?feature=mhee. This hard drive was installed in my 2009 macbook pro which doesn't have the SATAIII connector but it still makes my computer amazingly fast compared to the old hard drive. The write speed comes in at 194mbps If your looking for a new hard drive I really recommend the 830 samsung series (the 840s just came out too). Anyways just thought I would share if you guys have any other questions please let me know!
  16. Hello my configuration is this: Asus P8z77-M 8GB DDR3 (Corsair 1600) Nvidia 560SE 1536MB RAM Seagate 250GB SATA3 (ST3250318AS) I had a problem with USB not working inside installer but i solved it with this: Now remain the other problem with my disks. i have internal sata disk seagate 250GB but it appear as external in disk utility at el capitans installer. i tryed this: but with this, no longer start the installer. it stuck at some point. When i remove this code from config.plist, i can go to installer but again the drive appear as external. I tryed also other disks but all internal drives appear as external. Any solution? Im reffering ofcourse for El Capitan installation

    AppleAHCIPort.kext (for RAID)

    Version 1.0 (only version)


    This modified AppleAHCIPort.kext makes it possible to Hackintosh laptops and desktops that are locked in RAID SATA mode. I've personally only tested it with the HP m6-1045dx laptop, which uses a classic locked BIOS and HM77 "Panther Point" chipset paired with the Ivy Bridge i5. Based on the nature of the kext, I would say this can work with other computers, just give it a go! ------------------------ Why do I need this kext? If your SATA-connected hard drive isn't being detected by the OS X installer and you have no control over SATA mode in BIOS/EFI (ie, IDE, RAID, AHCI modes). Common with the latest (2012 at least and newer) HP laptops, probably the trend for many OEMs these days. ------------------------ Install via Kext Wizard, probably a good idea to rebuild cache/repair permissions (also via Kext Wizard) while you're at it! Thanks to eep357 for making this file!
  18. Hello all, I've been gone for awhile and am wondering with the holidays coming up should I upgrade my badass Hackintosh entirely, or should I just upgrade a couple of things? Some of my specs are in my signature. I need more Hard Drive space and currently I have a option to upgrade my storage by either getting a card to expand my IDE capacity or taking one of my two DVD drives out. What I have in the Signature is actually my backup HD. The ones I have Inside are 160GB, 120GB, and 2 TB. I have slow 667mhz memory in here. Would it tremendously help if i upgraded to the O.C. which is 1066 or higher to 1366? I need to be able to keep Snow Leopard functionality because of older games I refuse to let go just to go to lion or mountain lion. I also want to make sure video games like WoW or Starcraft which are the ones I usually play will not make my system a minimum specs for awhile. I'm going through college and I don't have allot of money to spend on other things besides school so any help that is not tough on my wallet would be great. If anyone can say if my board and graphics card is supported in mountain lion and lion that'd be great!

    SuperVIAATA 1.0.3 for Yosemite

    I decided to upgrade SuperVIAATA for Yosemite. Not more deprecation / warnings during build so totally optimized. Fully 64-bit capable too. BTW: It's my 30th birthday today so you could call this the birthday edition Gonna have a little beer now... Gordon Platinum (12%)... the best Enjoy... I'll even give the secret behind these... Diff between AppleIntelPIIXATA 10.5.8 and 10.6.8. Notice the differences between the code... You can upgrade any ATA driver this way and make it SL (and above) compliant. EDIT: New version, fixed some mistakes. EDIT2: Added Github repo. https://github.com/andyvand/SuperVIAATA AppleIntelPIIXATAUpgrade.diff.zip SuperVIAATA.zip
