  1. Hi, I've just upgraded to OSX Catalina from Mojave on my VMWare Workstation 15.5, running on Windows 10. The Sidecar feature is there, and after connecting my iPad Pro 12.9" 2018 running iPadOS 13.1.2 via USB cable, it is recognized as a display device in the Sidecar preferences. However, when I enable it, the Sidecar screen on the iPad is completely black / blank. I can't send anything over, and if I mouse over the green + on an app window (i.e. Safari) to move it to the iPad, nothing happens and the screen remains blank. The sidebar will only appear after I turn it off and on again at Catalina's Sidecar preferences. The buttons there actually work. For example, if I move Safari over to iPad, the screen is blank, but if I activate the on-screen virtual keyboard and type there, the text actually goes to the Safari's search bar (the Safari still appears on the desktop). Is this a compatibility issue with VMWare, where Catalina can't properly recognize the second screen? I've tried changing host VM settings too, i.e. to "host setting" or 2 monitors, enable / disable 3D acceleration, nothing works. the iPad is definitely correctly connected, as I can browse / backup its data at the Finder. Can anyone please advice on how to enable Sidecar properly in VMWare? Thank you. Below is a screenshot of how it looks like on my iPad:
  2. Hello, Here I am looking for the answer of new Mac OS Catalina features and what type of Mac will support this new Os??
  3. Hi guys, this thread is to show you a new and open source app, created by me, that I called TINU: The name means: TINU Is Not #####, the U refers to a popular software that is used to create macOS hackintosh installers (that for good reasons is banned on this forum), but the aim of the name is to explain that this app is a totally different thing from that software and works in a totally different way. This app basically is a graphical interface for the createinstallmedia executable that is inside the macOS and Mac OS X installer apps, it is capable to create a bootable installer completely vanilla like what you do using the command line method, and also this method is recommended by apple itself. In addition to this, this app provvides to you simplicity and flexybility, and lets you to avoid most of the steps needed with every other app. TINU allows you to create easily a bootable macOS installer without messing around with command line stuff and without using disk utility, all you need to do is use the app and then install clover on the usb drive once TINU has finished or leave it as is if you want to use it on a real Mac. Features: - Simple-to-use UI that allows you to easily start the bootable macOS installer creation process. - It can work with every macOS installer app that has the createinstallmedia executable inside its resources folder (including also beta and newly released installers). - You can use any erasable volume that is at least 7 GB of size (if the volume's drive is not in GUID format, TINU will re-format it accordingly). - Can work with the Mac OS recovery system, so you can create a bootable macOS installer from the macOS installer itself or from the macOS recovery partition, and you can use TINU to install macOS, too. - 100% clean: The bootable macOS installers created with this tool are vanilla, just as if you created them using the command line "createinstallmedia" method in Terminal. - Open Source: You can verify what this program does on your computer and you can create your own version by downloading and playing with the source code. - Does not require any special preparations. Just open the program, make sure you have a USB drive plugged in and have a macOS installer app on your disk. - No need to use Disk Utility. TINU can format your drive or partition for you. - Integrated EFI partition mounter tool. - Uses recent, modern, APIs and SDKs and the Swift 3 language. - Transparent graphics style available (type alt-S or choose from the menu bar: View -> Use transparent style). - Works using the latest versions of macOS and will also support newer Mac installers out of the box without requiring an update. - Offers advanced features to customize your bootable macOS installer. Features that are planned for future versions: - Install and configure [Clover](https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/). - Install kexts into Clover's kexts folder. - Clover drivers customization - Use custom DSDT in Clover - Integrated pre-made Clover config templates database from a remote and open repository. - Support for other languages, at least Italian. # Requirements: - A computer that runs Mac OS X Yosemite or a more recent version (Mac OS X El Capitan is required to use TINU in a macOS recovery or installer). - A drive or a free partition (on a drive which already supports GUID) of least 7 GB that you want to turn into a macOS/Mac OS X installer. - A copy of a macOS/Mac OS X installer app (Maveriks or newer versions are supported) in the /Applications folder or in the root of any storage drive on your machine (excepted the drive or volume you want to turn into your macOS install media).

  5. Lenovo Thinkpad L420 macOS Sierra Guide Thanks to the good old mighty Clover Bootloader, we have so much better support for laptops and different alternative hardware. I have made a few HackBook Pros but without a shadow of a doubt this Lenovo L420 is almost a perfect Apple computer. Even better in some aspects if you ask me about it. Lenovo theme on Clover in my L420 I will be quoting a good fellow of the community, tluck , who made an awesome guide for his Lenovo T420, and he also helped me achieve better functionality. Regards to you my friend. I have already written a guide for installing and perfecting Mac OS X El Capitan on this PC, but I wanted to see how good Sierra could run, and OH BOY it is running like a charm. Here are the specs of the machine. In my case I added 8GB of RAM. I understand this is not a highly popular laptop outside corporations, I don’t even know if it was ever sold to the general public, so I guess this post will help me know that hahah anyway a friend of mine gave me two of them, one with i5 another with i3. This tutorial applies to any of those models. It should also apply to older versions of Mac OS X all the way until Snow Leopard (little modifications required as well as appropriate kexts) What is working WiFi , Bluetooth, Airdrop (Wifi replaced with Atheros AR9285) Full QE/CI acceleration with integrated Intel HD3000 graphics Trackpad with 1 finger , 2 finger and 3 finger gestures keyboard as well as function keys (brightness, volume) Battery percentage Sleep, Shutdown and Reboot Sound working on ALC269 mobile DVD Drive DisplayPort audio and video VGA out USB 3.0 ExpressCard (Renesas) iMessage and Facetime Recovery Partition What is not working You tell me 1. Creating the install media The best way to install macOS to our Hackintosh is definitely to create a USB with the latest version of macOS Sierra (10.12.5 as of writing this guide) and to use the createinstallmedia method. For that you will need either a Macintosh computer, an existing Hackintosh or a Virtual Machine running OS X 10.6 or above. This way you will end up with a clean vanilla install , and with a recovery partition capable of booting and capable of using FindMyMac / FindMyiPhone I won’t go into too much details about this since this is one of the first things you should know when attempting to Hackintosh. This procedure is for a new macOS installation using a USB Installer. Download macOS from the App Store - it is freely available One can build a macOS USB installer with the standard macOS installer app downloaded from the "App Store". Download and extract the zip file from this post to build a Clover-based USB installer. This same bundle will be installed later on HD. Install macOS to a GPT formatted disk using the standard Install macOS.app downloaded from the Apple Store. Create a macOS USB installer Partition an 8GB (or larger) USB formatted with GUID Partition Table (GPT) - use the Partition Options... menu to change from MBR to GPT - Name the partition USB - the install process will rename it, but it matches the script below. - Use format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) (formerly OS X Extended) Note: if you have a larger USB (say 16GB) you can split into 2 8GB partitions, so you can have 10.12 and 10.11 installers on the same USB key Run this command to copy the bits to the USB key: Note: if using an older version of macOS, replace with the corresponding app name. sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app --nointeraction 2. Install bootloader (Clover) to install media You should select your USB in the Clover installer and then hit “Customize” Select the next options: Install Clover in the ESP Install boot0ss in MBR Clover EFI 64bits SATA CSMVideoDxe-64 EmuVariableUEFI-64 OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 Fat64 3. Configuring the bootloader After installation is complete, the EFI partition we want to configure will already be mounted, so we proceed to open it and do the following Install HFSPlus.efi and NTFS.efi in drivers64UEFI folder and remove VboxHFS.efi. Because this PC doesn’t have any UEFI you should also install HFSPlus.efi and NTFS.efi to the drivers64 folder. Open the folder /EFI/Clover/kexts and delete all the folders starting by 10 and leave only the “other” folderIn the above mentioned “other” folder. Place the kexts that I will quote next (you can download the ones attached to the post, but I always recommend the latest versions) : ACPIBatteryManager.kext AppleALC.kext CodecCommander.kext FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext FakePCIID.kext FakeSMC, HWInfo, IntelCPUMonitor (HwSensors3 from Slice) GenericUSBXHCI.kext (only if you use an USB3.0 ExpressCard) RealtekRTL8111.kext USBInjectAll.kext VoodooPS2Controller.kext (tluck's version) L420 kextpack.zip Notes on VoodooPS2 (tluck) VoodooPS2Controller.kext (v1.8.25f) - New custom T420 version of RehabMans's PS2 Keyboad/TouchPad/TrackPoint - This version has extra T420 definitions in the Info.plist files. Tweaks to help with TrackPoint on startup Jakibaki's cut/paste fix for middle button + scrolling fix. if MiddeMouseScroll is set to true scrolling TrackPoint works. Sierra PrefPane integration and other fixes (smoothness and caps-lock) by usr-sse2 (see this post on GitHub) Modified Info.plist(s) to add LENOVO T420 override settings. ​TrackPad pressure FingerZ value set to 47 - up from default of 30 - change to suite your touch in VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2TrackPad.kext/Contents/Info.plist Various Default overrides such as MouseMultiplier X and Y for TrackPoint. Note: VoodooPS2Controller keyboard mappings have 3 or 4 finger swipe left/right to back/forward configured for Safari browser vs space swipe Optional Key Map: This map works in El Capitan. Since the NX keys are in a state of flux for Sierra - it is disabled by default now. If you would want to use this new map, edit the Info.plist file and rename the T420 key map entry. The F1-F15 key mappings are VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns/VoodooPS2Keyboard.kext/Contents/Info.key.plist: F1 - LCD Brightness Down F2 - LCD Brightness Up F3 - Mission Control App Selector F4 - Launchpad F5 - F6 - F7 - Mirror Displays F8 - Disable/Enable TouchPad F9 - F10 - Mute Volume F11 - Volume Down F12 - Volume Up PrtSc - Scan Previous Track ScrLck - iTunes Play/Pause Pause - Scan Next Track Insert - Eject After all the kexts are in the correct folder you should tweak your config.plist as follows, I recommend using a proper plist editor , the best is Xcode. config.plist.zip Lenovo mostly whitelist the Wifi cards on their laptops (and some desktops) so you will have to use a custom BIOS for this. There is one here luckily. If you need me to explain how to flash it then you shouldn’t really be Hackintoshing in the first place. After you have flashed the BIOS make sure you set the SATA controller to AHCI. You should be able to boot from the Clover USB and install Mac OS X Remember to use a GUID partition scheme for the drive you will use. Recovery partition should be generated automatically by the OS X installer. 4. Hopefully you boot and get to install macOS well. Boot Clover from USB Installer and select Install macOS Install the OS on your GPT disk on the macOS partition. Make sure the drive is formatted using: Scheme: GUID Partition Map (GPT) Partition Name: macOS Format: macOS Extended (Journaled) Dual BOOT tip: If you plan to dual boot Windows from the same HD - DO NOT make the 2nd partition NTFS or ExFAT with the Disk Utility app. Make them both "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" Size the 2 partitions appropriately - but later you will delete/reformat the 2nd partition for Windows. Click through GUI Install menus and wait for the installation to fully complete - on a spinning disk takes about 30-45 minutes. Follow these Notes and Tips: When the installer screens shows: "To pair a Bluetooth keyboard, turn it on and wait for your computer to connect to it.” Hit the Space Bar to get past this step. When installer seems to hang at: "About a second remaining” Don’t Panic, this "second" may take about 10 minutes or more to finish. Just wait for the installer to reboot the computer and continue the installation. The whole install process takes about 1 hour to complete. On the first boot from the HD when asked: "How Do You Connect?” Select: “My computer does not connect to the Internet” You can set up the network later after installation of the NIC driver kext. Your Intel WiFi will not work. Period. 5. Next you have to install the boot loader to the HDD You should select your USB in the Clover installer and then hit “Customize” Select the next options: Install Clover in the ESP Install boot0ss in MBR Clover EFI 64bits SATA CSMVideoDxe-64 EmuVariableUEFI-64 OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 Fat64 Install all RC scripts to target partition After installation is complete, the EFI partition we want to configure will already be mounted, so we proceed to open it and do the following Again we install HFSPlus.efi and NTFS.efi in drivers64UEFI folder and remove VboxHFS.efi. Because this PC doesn’t have any UEFI you should also install HFSPlus.efi and NTFS.efi to the drivers64 folder. Also copy your ACPI files and config.plist at the right places. 6. In order to get everything working properly , follow these guidelines for ACPI tables patching. Firstly, press F4 at Clover GUI in order to dump the native ACPI tables. You will most probably get a crash, a red screen full of weird black numbers and strange symbols, do not worry, just force shutdown. At the next boot if you look in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/origin you should have a bunch of files. After getting MaciASL and acpica tools from RehabMan (always updated) and installing them, and adding rehabman’s laptop dsdt patch repository, which is this: https://github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch Delete all files except DSDT, SSDT-0 and SSDT-1 in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/origin You should decompile the DSDT , SSDT-0 and SSDT-1 using the following commands (make sure you create a .txt document containing the following external references and place it in the same place where the ACPI files are) External(MDBG, MethodObj, 1)External(_GPE.MMTB, MethodObj, 0)External(_SB.PCI0.LPCB.H_EC.ECWT, MethodObj, 2)External(_SB.PCI0.LPCB.H_EC.ECRD, MethodObj, 1)External(_SB.PCI0.LPCB.H_EC.ECMD, MethodObj, 1)External(_SB.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP.SGPO, MethodObj, 2)External(_SB.PCI0.GFX0.DD02._BCM, MethodObj, 1)External(_SB.PCI0.SAT0.SDSM, MethodObj, 4)External(_GPE.VHOV, MethodObj, 3)External(_SB.PCI0.XHC.RHUB.TPLD, MethodObj, 2) Then do: cd /path/to/your/filesiasl -da -dl -fe refs.txt *.aml After obtaining the .dsl files you should open them and check for errors.The only error you will find will be in one of the SSDTs and it can be fixed using the Remove _PSS placeholders patch to fix that SSDT that only contains info about the CPU and is full of “Package (0x06)” When your files are nice and clean and in .dsl format you can happily apply the following patches to DSDT Use the patch “Rename GFX0 to IGPU” Use the patch “Rename B0D3 to HDAU” Use the patch "DTGP" (easy to find with our buddy Google) Use the patch "Fix _WAK Arg0 v2" Use the patch "HPET Fix" Use the patch "SMBUS Fix" Use the patch "IRQ Fix" Use the patch "RTC Fix" Use the patch "OS Check Fix" Use the patch "Fix Mutex with non-zero SyncLevel" Use the patch "Add IMEI" Use the patch “6 Series USB” Use the patch "USB PRW 0x6D" Use the patch "Audio Layout id 3" Use the patch "L420 battery patch" For Brightness keys (Q14 and Q15 in DSDT) In Method _Q14 add at the end: Notify (PS2K, 0x0206)Notify (PS2K, 0x0286) In Method _Q15 add at the end: Notify (PS2K, 0x0205)Notify (PS2K, 0x0285) If you are lost with ACPI here is how you should place the code: Little bonus, since the ThinkVantage key does absolutely nothing, I patched the DSDT so that when you hit that key, the fans will remain at 100% speed all the time. Hit it again and they go back to auto mode Cool Right? Replace your _Q19 method with this (credits to tluck) Method (_Q19, 0, NotSerialized) // _Qxx: EC Query { Name (FANS, One) Store (HFSP, FANS) XOr (FANS, 0x80, Local0) If (Local0) { Store (0x80, HFSP) } Else { Store (0x07, HFSP) } } After all the ACPI tables are properly patched save them all and compile your tables cd /path/to/patched/tablesiasl *.dsl After getting the resulting patched aml files, place them in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched for Clover to load itFinally you will need to generate an SSDT using ssdtPRGen.sh Note: - If you want working brightness in Sierra make sure to download my ACPI files pack and use the provided SSDT-PNLF - Also if you use Atheros AR9285 like me you can use the attached SSDT-2 and see if it works, otherwise provide here your DSDT 7. After you have your DSDT, SSDT-0, SSDT-1 and SSDT (the one generated by the script) , along with SSDT-PNLF and SSDT-2 if you need them, place them all together in /EFI/Clover/ACPI/patched and in the ACPI section of your config.plist make sure to "Drop OEM" tables and set the "Sorted Order" Overall I would say this laptop is quite perfect for a Hackintosh , I use it for a few months and I love it, hope you do too. This Hack is functioning almost 100% in Mac OS X and certainly it performs so much better than in Windows Enjoy our fully functional Hack General Notes and Random Fixes The stock Intel WiFi will not work. The common approach is use a modded BIOS and replace the WiFi with a Broadcom or Atheros chip (I went for AR9285). Enable (turn on) Bluetooth so the green light is showing on the LCD bezel (do from Windows or Ubuntu). Also make sure the side switch is set to green too! When using external headphones or speakers, may need to plug and unplug 1 or 2 times for recognition. iMessage/Facetime may not register without overriding the Clover generated values with real ROM and MLB values from a real Apple Mac. Search thread for ROM to get more info. ​Clover can possibly generate proper values and inject using RtVariables - use mac address -- see wiki for details. Hibernation - Use OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi instead of OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi UEFI driver for restart from hibernation. Suggested settings if you don't want or use hibernation: sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 rm /var/vm/sleepimage if you want hibernation, then set hibernate mode to 7 (mode 7 is like mode 3 but without encryption) - may need to manually edit this value into the plist file now. sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 7 Note: Booting up from the hibernated image may have jumbled or blank LCD until you do a sleep/wake cycle to reset the LCD. Add boot option darkwake=0 if you would like to disable power nap and have the lid wake the gfx instead of hitting extra key. TrackPoint may not be responsive on startup (random occurance) - a sleep/wake cycle should revive it. Here are my patched tables if you need them L420 patched ACPI Sierra.zip

  12. I've installed Mac Os X 10.9.1 Mavericks on my Intel Haswell NUC Core i5 (D54250WYK), which has mini Display port output. I connected Nuc with 27-inch Korean monitor (Crossover 2763amg) with mini Display port - Display port cable to get 2560x1440 resolution. Installation was working fine without any issue, then i restarted my machine to load Mavericks and got login screen. After i type my user account password, os x shutd down immediately in 1-2 seconds. If i boot with "-v -x" flags (verbose, save mode), then everything goes fine, but there is poor graphics acceleration. I've also noticed if i connect my Nuc to old 17-inch LG monitor through HDMI cable (mini HDMI - HDMI), then there is no a such issue, but resolution is 1080p. Another strange thing, if i change Org.chameleon.Boot.plist file located in /Extra folder of my SSD for lower resolution (from 2560x1440 -> 2048x1152) then i have os x shuts down after login screen not every time - sometimes it occured, sometimes not. The same behaviour if i connect my Nuc with passive mini DP - DVI adapter + DVI cable (the resolution in this case is 1920x1200): sometimes shuts down after login screen occured, sometimes - not. Also, i've tried Windows 7x64 installing, and everything worked without below problem in 2560x1440. I've heard about Lapic Kernel patching for Haswell CPU's, but i haven't tried it yet. Where could be the cause of this behaviour in Max OS X? Any suggestions? Here is my suggestion: Try another mini DP - DP cable. Try MINI DP - DUAL LINK DVI adapters like: Monoprice Mini DisplayPort/Thunderbolt Plus USB To Dual-Link DVI Adaptor Kanex iAdapt C30 MDPC30 Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter StarTech.com mdp 2 dvi Mini DisplayPort to DVI Dual-Link Apple mini Display port to Dual Link DVI adapter Try External usb3.0 video capture card

  14. everytime I try to install mac osx snow leopard on my Acer Aspire 5920 (not 5920G) I get error message: the installer could not install the software because there was no software found to install. Please Help! my specs: Intel Core 2 duo T5550 intel GMA965 graphics 2GB DDR2 802.11 a/b/g WLAN I am using Snow Leopard 10.6.1/10.6.2 for sse2/sse3 intel amd by hazard
  15. Hi, When on 10.8, I edited about this mac by modifying com.apple.SystemProfiler.plist in ~/Library/Preferences. I changed the name, computer picture, and a couple of other things. I restarted and tested it, it worked fine. After updating to 10.9, it worked for a while, then I tried to open it, but it does not, nothing happens. System Information still opens, but about this mac does not open. I tried moving com.apple.SystemProfiler.plist to the desktop and rebooting, I had the same issue (OS X had made another on reboot which was empty). I was using a smbios.plist in /Extra, so I downloaded a stock one and used that, not change. I then just renamed it to smbios.plist.old to disable it all together. Still same thing and I have run out of ideas. Graphics all work perfectly so it isn't a graphics problem. Any ideas? Thanks.
  16. Disclaimer: This is my app, not sure about the rules on promotional threads on InsanelyMac. I don't normally post threads about my own stuff, but I thought this would be pretty useful to the Hackintosh community. InsanelyMac & TonyMacx86 have helped me so much. So I went from W7 (which had a multitude of great apps for dealing with more than one monitor like Ultramon) to an OS X Lion Hackintosh, which I loved infinitely more but apparently didn't work too well out of the box with a multiple monitor setup. A bit about my setup for anyone who cares: Mobo: ASUS P6T CPU: i7 920 GPU: GTX 470 SLI (ugh, huge headache not knowing how to do EFI strings) RAM: 6GB OCZ Gold Monitors: 2x 24" Samsung SyncMasters. =========================== Here's my attempt at dealing with the multiple monitor problem: Multimon. (<- Click to view in App Store) Features: • Multiple Menu Bars ⁃ Should work for any number of monitors, the max I was able to test up to was 3 though. (Hackintoshers with 9 monitor setups, please let me know ). • Advanced Window Management ⁃ You're more productive with another monitor but nobody wants to drag windows left and right. Easily send a window to any of your monitors via a drop down or a hotkey. Maximize or minimize too! • Automatic Window Resizing ⁃ A lot of us hackintoshers don't have the luxury of matching dual cinema displays . This'll automatically resize windows that are too large onto smaller monitors. • Hotkeys ⁃ Pretty customizable hotkeys for a bunch of the features listed above as well as quickly hiding all menu bars, etc. So yup, that's it. You can tweet me for support / feedback at @delveapps. Chat with me about hackintosh / apps / design / tech / anything at @aaronykng . Hope you guys find it useful. Look forward to hearing what you guys think.

  18. Hello, What I want to do is installing mac os x lion on my dell dimensions 8400 with iAtkos L1 (downloaded last week). But, when i boot on the external disk (because it don't work on a dvd) the screen frezes. And the computer stop working. What can i do ? Thanks (if you speak french, you can go to my french topic !)
  19. Hi Everyone , I just put my new GTX 970 in my macpro early 2008 today ! Everything is working (my 3 screens via DVI (2X) and display port (1X). I downloaded the latest webdriver and CUDA drivers. BUT , When i run for exemple the cinebench test from MAXON I only have 35 FPS, which is my previous score with my ATI Radeon 5870 1G memory... I saw a guy making the test on youtube he has 114 FPS !!! I also tested premiere with CUDA but I didn't notice any gain in the workflows or on the effects CUDA is supposed to accelerate. Same in adobe media Encoder , I did rendering with my old ATI : 25 Minutes and with the new gtx : 24:30 ??? Does someone have an idea about that or do I miss something ? I saw some people playing with <key>Kernel Flags</key> <string>nvda_drv=1</string> and things like this ??? but I didn't need that for the card to work... Anyway, thank you very much to anyone with help because for now I'm very disappointed with my new GTX . Robin
  20. Salve a tutti, Sarei interessato a mettere mac os X lion su questa mia configurazione: MB: Asus rampage IV extreme (EFI Bios) VB: Nvidia ge-force GTX 580 CPU: intel i7 3930k @3.8 GHz (overclocked) (sanybridge) RAM: kingstone DDR3 2x8(?) @ 1333MHz Audio: logitech G36 (USB) Wireless: realtek RTL 8192SE LAN: intel 82579V BTH: Asus bluetooth Mouse: Trust Predator (USB) KB: Logitech G19 Screen: LG Flatron W2442PA (full HD) (TYPE: AHCI) 1HDD: Patriot Pyro SE (SSD, windows) 2HDD: WDC WD20EARX-00P CD: SH-S223B (Se servon altre info basta chiederle) E vorrei installare qui Mac OS X Lion (per ora), in concomitanza con Windows 7 premium. Nonostante abbia un po' di esperienza anche sugli hackintosh e non poca sui PC (son un ingegnere informatico), questa configurazione che mi son fatto sembra la prima (a legger dal web) su cui venga installato un hackintosh. Ho (a prove) configurato il BIOS in modo da far partire l'installazione (in pratica andava disattivato un controller e la CPU Spread Spectrum). Solo che quando installo iAktos (lion) al riavvio (ho provato con vari kext ma nulla) ottengo un kernel panic. Con ideneb (1.6), invece, ottengo in installazione l'errore "Still waith for root device", che se non erro indica che non vede i dischi (son certo sian in AHCI). Cosa mi consigliate di fare?
  21. I want to edit a kernel file I've downloaded off the internet but I can't open it what program do I need
  22. I have a late 2012 Mac Mini i5 Dual Core which came with 4GB RAM, been using it since December '13. I decided to Upgrade the RAM (Memory) to 8GB and bought 'Two Corsair Value Select 1600 MHz' 4GB RAM sticks and upgraded it to 8GB about a week and half back. Currently Running Mavericks 10.9.3 Since then I have experienced that the Mac during some youtube videos, hangout video calls (Chrome Browser) etc crashes and I get the 'Grey Screen asking me to press any button to Restart screen'. It happens atleast once daily sometimes twice. today it happened a lot. I've checked the 'About Mac' memory tab says 8GB with both sticks working fine. Even ran a Apple Hardware Test this morning and got a clean result. Can anyone help me with this? thanks

  24. Eu já tinha lido essa matéria a algum tempo, mas em inglês, e quando eu pesava em traduzir, os caras do Br-Mac.org já fizeram isso, e melhor do que traduzir, eles deixaram bem fácil de entender. Vejam que demais. Após 9 meses de torturante teste de uso contínuo, um laboratório demonstrou a durabilidade de uma amostra do mercado de SSDs – enquanto isso, o próprio mercado demonstra quais as marcas que merecem o seu investimento. “Como prever a durabilidade de um SSD?” Um aspecto me despertava a curiosidade, e até certa preocupação: a durabilidade dos SSDs. Enquanto um HD mecânico tradicional frequentemente encontra o seu final de vida dando vários sintomas, como ruídos e erros cada vez mais frequentes, com os SSDs eu não tenho experiência prévia e não sabia o que esperar. Mas, graças aos testes feitos pelo Tech Report, fiquei bem mais tranquilo. Eles pegaram SSDs da Corsair, Intel, Kingston e Samsung, todos na faixa dos 250GB de capacidade e voltados ao consumidor final, e colocaram eles para funcionar em um regime de tortura, com uso contínuo. O teste durou meses (começou em agosto do ano passado...), e todos os drives ultrapassaram o limite de falhas divulgados pelos fabricantes – todos passaram de pelo menos 700TB (700. bytes, na escala decimal adotada) de escrita antes de falhar. Como eram drives de 250GB, calcule quantas vezes eles foram completamente escritos e reescritos até chegar a esse número... “Ultrapassando a barreira dos petabytes” Além disso, 3 dos drives testados (Corsair Neutron GTX, Samsung 840 Pro e Kingston HyperX 3K) ultrapassaram a barreira de 1 PB (petabyte - equivalente a bytes na escala decimal utilizada) de escrita. Além dessas informações interessantes para orientar escolhas de compra, os testes também indicaram o que cada drive apresentou como indicativo de que estava prestes a falhar, resolvendo a minha dúvida inicial. “SSD não é tudo igual: é preciso conhecer as marcas” Além do aspecto da durabilidade, é necessário considerar mais algumas informações sobre os diversos fornecedores de SSD do mercado atual. No começo do mês, o site StorageReview publicou uma síntese sobre as marcas de SSD que oferecem algum diferencial: Samsung, Crucial/Micron, OCZ (Toshiba), SanDisk, Intel e (em breve) Seagate. Segundo a análise, só essas marcas valem o investimento, porque produzem ou têm acesso a algum recurso superior aos dos outros: a SanDisk tem tanta confiança nos seus SSDs que começou a oferecer 10 anos de garantia em alguns deles, a Samsung, a OCZ e a Micron dominam recursos que permitem oferecer os menores preços por GB e manter bom desempenho nos produtos, e os processos da Intel são garantia de qualidade. E os outros? São a segunda categoria, cada vez mais espremida para baixo. Alguns copiam (mal e com atraso) o projeto dos líderes, outros incluem controladores de baixa qualidade em seus SSDs para conseguir reduzir o preço, etc. A lista de marcas mencionada nessas categorias de indesejáveis inclui: ADATA, Kingston, Corsair, Mushkin, PNY, WD, HSGT, e Plextor. “Truques sujos apontados nas práticas da Kingston e PNY” Notou que a Kingston figura tanto na lista dos drives que aguentaram até o limite de 1PB quanto na das marcas de segunda linha? Essa aparente contradição pode ter uma explicação simples: a Kingston e a PNY estão sendo acusadas de um truque sujo: lançar os primeiros produtos de cada modelo de SSD com componentes de qualidade superior, aguardar os testes e reviews independentes atestando a sua qualidade e desempenho, e aí mudar profundamente a lista de componentes e processos de fabricação sem mudar a identificação do modelo, para reduzir seus custos e aproveitar a boa reputação das fornadas iniciais. Isso não significa que todos os produtos dessas marcas são ruins, ou que alguma ilegalidade foi cometida, mas as decisões do consumidor tendem a ficar melhores quando ele conhece as práticas dos fornecedores. Com esse conjunto de informações, vai ficar mais fácil escolher meus próximos SSDs! Fonte: Br-Mac.org
