  1. Got temporarily banned earlier today from tonymacx86.com. Caught me totally by surprise! The reason given was I had repeatedly violated the rules about a Signature. Specifically, that I had not listed my system information in the Signature. Scratching my head because I had indeed listed my system information from the very beginning in my Signature. The ironic thing was I was in the process of updating my Sig when I got the banned notice. So I tried to look up the pertinent rules for Signatures but of course, I could not go there because I was shut out. One of the mods replied to my last post before the ban saying I was not in compliance but I still don't know in what way. Like a lot of people I have been experimenting with High Sierra on different systems lately so my posts contained questions about various combinations I was using but my main rig specs were in the Sig all along. Supposedly, the ban will be lifted tomorrow so I can find out more specifics. Wow, kind of floored! They must have some very specific rules about the format of a Sig over there. Not use to that. I spend most of my time over at Overclockers.com where a Sig is encouraged but not mandatory.

    Lenovo ThinkPad W530

    I bought a W530 machine back on Black Friday of 2012. It's a very nice and powerful machine."(Thank you for reading http://www.insanelym...ort-tonymacx86/ )"we managed to get to a condition where it will boot with a few flags and be limited in its capabilities. Anybody here with experience in this machine? Or is willing to help me (and maybe others) out?
  3. Hi all, So I am trying to get a hackintosh running for a friend of mine and I am running into some issues. Here is my hardware setup Gigabyte GA-H87N-WIFI LGA 1150 Intel Core i5-4430 Quad Core Haswell @ 3.0 Ghz 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 MHz PC3-12800 240GB SSD I used the CustoMac Mini Deluxe build, the only thing I left out of the list was the video card, which was listed as optional So, I originally tried to follow tonymac's tutorial which did not get me very far. During bootup after finishing the OS install, I would get a whole screen full of distorted lines and the process would not go any further. So I decided to try another tutorial to try and get mavericks installed. The second time around, I used this tutorial for installing a vanilla OS X 10.9 http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/280756-guide-the-all-in-one-guide-to-vanilla-os-x-including-chameleon-dsdt-for-beginners-updated-for-mavericks/ This tutorial seemed to be much better, but after I do the initial install of OSX onto my SSD (btw, the only way I could get the installer to load was via the –x -f –v flag during boot) I am getting a kernel panic. I have quite a bit of experience with UNIX/Linux so I am not at all afraid of the command line, but I have to admit some of the messages that get spit out in verbose boot make it sound like your computer is just about to commit suicide in some graphic and dramatic way. Here is a screenshot of the kernel panic that I am running into (btw, this is also when I use the –x –v –f boot flags – for some reason it worked without issue the first time, but at the point of the tutorial where I am supposed to boot back into the installer and run a few things in terminal, I am not able to get back into the installer to load up the terminal application). I should mention that when I view the boot process with the –v (verbose) flag, I do see some error messages that say something about the CPU not being compatible with the system, even though this processor is listed on the site that specs out hackintosh builds. Occasionally the boot process seems to get hung up on something related to Bluetooth as well, but I do not have a picture of the output readily available. I can upload a pic when I get home from work tho (that is, if I can get it to fail in the same way).. Any idea what is going on?
  4. Hi all, As many of you probably are, I'm now upgrading to member after a ridiculous ban hammer. I simply asked the mods to weigh in as to whether asking somebody for a legitimate MAS installer was piracy. My argument is that it isn't really piracy, considering Apple freely gave El capitan away as an upgrade. Then I asked, if the mods are okay with it, can someone give me an installer for El capitan, as I have all the rest of them, but sierra wasan't working for me. Instead of just saying, that they feel it's piracy (I would be okay with their ruling), ban hammer. Asinine ! Lets start a "How did you get banned of TM or take a survey and see how many members have been banned for fun" poll Probably a lot of us !
  5. I have installed Lion on Vmware and due to good performance I have decided to install natively on the computer using this method: http://tonymacx86.bl...lion-using.html My machine: Intel Desktop Board DH67B Intel Core i3-2100 Processor (3M Cache, 3.10 GHz) The video is integrated on the motherboard Samsung S19A300 18.5 inch Widescreen LED Monitor Two Kingston of 4GB DDR3 PC3-10700 1333MHz But I have some questions: 1. What would be the choices I make in [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]? I found this topic with the option to place in the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] But not any graphic option marked: http://www.tonymacx8...=141042#p141042 2. How to configure the integrated video motherboard? 3. Can you update the Lion without problems or I have to fix in each update? 4. I recognize the configuration of my monitor? 5. I found the DSDT file of the motherboard but not how to use it: http://olarila.com/f...c.php?f=7&t=219 Any help is appreciated as I am very new on Mac Thanks
  6. Many users wonder why we do not support tonymac's products here at InsanelyMac. The reason is that we believe he is a commercial spin-off of the OSx86 scene, and it's not in the spirit of OSx86 to have commercial intents with development. These are the main reasons why we don't approve posting his material here (why he's a commercial spin-off): 1. His software is not open source. This is often confused because most people equate open source software with free software. This is definitely true, but it doesn't grasp the entire scope of open source; open source also includes releasing source code for the product, which tonymac fails to do. The OSx86 community believes everything should be open source. 2. The construction of his site is set up with emphasis on donation buttons and (affiliate) links to Amazon and Newegg, hinting at interests of profit. 3. The intent of gaining profits is basically confirmed by marketing his projects with suggestions of donations as though he deserves it, even though his products (most notably #####) is a compilation of products/drivers developed by others (not himself) that any non-programmer could put together. 4. You must pay for the tonymac software. Although this may seem reasonable considering the effort involved in building a customized installer for specific computer builds, again, it is not in the spirit of OSx86 to charge for software development, so the wiser idea would most likely be not to offer that service at all. Even though it may be nice for newbies, in my opinion it does not encourage education but rather laziness. I say this because the OSx86 movement is designed as an educational movement, where by hacking Mac OS X you can learn more about the operating system works, how computers work, etc., like how many of us do. However, the purpose of OSx86 is not a way to get a cheap Mac, which I personally believe is encouraged by tonymac's software considering it is marketed to perform a task without any sort of explanation of how it works. From another perspective: http://prasys.info/2011/01/tonymac-seriously/ This covers one of the issues brought up by developers. In two sentences: at InsanelyMac, we want to keep moral standards high and safeguard genuine developers. At tonymacx86 they take from others without giving credit. In order to make sure that it doesn't happen any longer, staff have now a new guideline:
