  1. I just wanted to give everyone a heads up: I was able to get my hands on a new motherboard from QUO Computers and test if out over the past few weeks. With this mother board you can boot up the installesd and complete an install with very little hassle. All of the hardware components are supported out of the box without additional drivers or dsdt edits (ethernet, thunderbolt, ivy bridge cpu/gpu). I'll post a few picture tomorrow and update this with more info. Z77MX-QUO-AOS Wiki link
  2. Intro Hey guys, I'm a linux guy so I'm not afraid to get down and dirty here. With that said my current project is to install osx86 onto this server motherboard and get the 8800gts working with QE/CL. I currently have a working system with Ethernet but no sound or DVD drive. The DVD drive wont reconize and I did not yet install a sound card. I am using the chocolate_kernel and do not need any boot flag to boot up. The real problem is the graphics. If I can get this up I don't care about DVD or sound. Setup Intel Server mobo (I think this is the board) Dual Processor - Dual Core 3.0Ghz 4GB DDR2 - 800Mhz 8800gts 320mb [g80] 320GB - Portable HDD (for sandboxing/installing) iPortable Snow Leopard 10.6.2 - chocolate_kernel Problem The 8800gts 320mb [G80] will not install. No QE/CL, no hardware acceleration. No Front Row. I have tried the following: GraphicsEnabler=yes EFI Studio OSX86 Tools EFI tool GraphicsEnable.pkg (or something rather. I can get the exact name) Deleted Framebuffer.kext & installing the kexts that come with iPortable Snow I have tried 3 different EFI strings that I all found online. iPortable Snow comes with NVinject and NVenabler but they are pkg and I cannot find any documentation on them on the internet. Funny thing about the EFI strings, they install to a directory NOT in Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist . I have to copy the plist from a different directory where EFI Studio and OSX86 Tools spits it out and copy it to the Extras folder. Please help I am 5 days into this and I have lost sleep over it thinking I am 'almost there' with each step. Thanks, any help is greatly appreciated!
  3. Vorrei assemblare un nuovo hackintosh partendo dallo stretto necessario per poi aggiungere altri componenti nel tempo. Dato che la mobo penso sia fondamentale vorrei prenderne una che mi dia la possibilità di future espansioni ma che non costi troppo. Ho visto che su Amazon ci sono delle mobo come ad esempio la Asrock Z370 Taichi usate ad ottimi prezzi. Voi che ne pensate? Vale la pena o è rischioso? Nella descrizione c'è scritto "Come nuovo" o "Ottime condizioni". Riguardo alla compatibilità di questa scheda madre con hackintosh che mi dite? Il modulo wi-fi e bluetooth è compatibile? Grazie. Marco

    problemi di boot con High Sierra

    Ciao a tutti. dopo aver installato High Sierra il pc non può avviarsi dall'SSD mostrandomi la schermata nera che dice di scegliere il boot. facendo partire il pc con l'USB inserita, da dove ho installato il tutto, mi viene mostrata schermata di scelta dove posso effettivamente fare partire osx appena installato dal ssd ma con una lentezza mostruosa!. se provo con la chiavetta scollegata stessa schermata nera con la scelta del boot. inutile aggiungere che ho cercato di cambiare l'ordine di avvio dal BIOS, aggiornato il BIOS, ma senza successo. l'ssd funziona perché dopo ho installato da questo stesso anche linux o windows tranquillamente cosa posso fare? grazie a tutti MOBO: Gigabyte GA-B250M-DS3H CPU intel i5 GPU NVIDIA MSI N750 Ti TF 2GD5 / OC
  5. Hello. It's been about 3 or 4 years since I built my first, and so far only hackingtosh. I did so fallowing a guide written by good guy ^Andy^, witch came with hardware recommendations. I now feel it's time for me to upgrade to a faster system to keep up with heavier work loads. I'm strongly considering building a hackingtosh around the new i7-6700K Skylake processor, but I haven't come across guides for this type of processor. I was wondering if any of you could recommend me a motherboard that's compatible and that won't become a hassle when trying to install OS X. Also, if there's a guide you know of, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

    AMD FX + HD7xxx 10.8.3 Hackintosh Build?

    Hi, I'm currently running a Windows 7 x64 PC with: 8GB DDR3 Ram AMD FX 4170 GPU AMD Radeon HD 7870 CPU 1TB HDD (Windows 7) 150GB HDD (Blank) Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 Motherboard I am aware that getting OSX on an AMD machine is not an easy task, but can it be done with my setup? I am currently running OSX 10.8.3 in VMWare which is OK but lags a fair bit and lacks any kind of 3d acceleration and would like to be able to dual boot it natively alongside windows on the 150GB HDD. Thanks

    Makes OS X and the installer work with the nForce 430 chipset. More specifically, allows OS X/installer to see the SATA and IDE (yes, IDE, too!) devices plugged in to your computer, including hard drives and disk drives. This kext does NOT make nForce LAN or anything else work, just SATA and IDE/ATA HDDs and ODDs. --------------------------- Works great with the Compaq Presario SR55 series!
