My name is Ian. The 'cxa' in my username comes from my ham radio call sign. I am a music producer and I'm in the process of building a hackintosh for audio production/light gaming.

Hello all .... I really like this site and i have so much to learn and here seems to be a great place.  I have been a Mac owner since Jan 1985 (128k Mac) and have always purchased what I needed from Apple so I am not knowledgeable in all the tweaking and special programs.  I have been a commercial advertising photographer for 40+ years and now retired. I purchased a Z77-UP5-TH MB and i7-3770 CPU (waiting delivery this week) along with a Gigabyte 660 graphics card.  I am trying to gather as much info as I can so I can make this work right. I live in North Carolina, USA and think it is so great that people from all over the world help each other with building their projects.

Hello all! 

 

I am Blipotech a current engineering student of computer software for mostly mobile devices with Java Android SDK and iOS. I also like to use CS6 for graphic, html, and project development and Logic for music production. I have finished my Haswell Hackintosh build and successfully have OS X Mavericks 10.9 up and running with only cosmetic (Graphic) issues. 

 

Build: 

intel i7 4770k 

nVidia GTX 770 2gb 

8GB ram 

500GB HDD, 128GB SSD 

Gigabyte z87-HD3 

 

This forum has been a great tool for both pre and post installation and has a very helpful and healthy community. I find myself visiting more and more often!

Hello from South Florida! I am so very excited to learn more about this wonderful world. I have always dreamed of getting Mac OS to run on regular HW available ever since the concept has been around when Apple switched to Intel. FINALLY I have the drive to dive right on in! Seems much more open to other HW then it was in the beginning! I am hell bent on getting OSX to run on my AMD HP LAPTOP...since it is what i am working with. Look forward to discussing with you all.

Hello! My name is Valerie. I'm a Computer Sciences student, graduating in networks management. I'm 22 years old, and my native language is French. I've wanted a Mac for long. However, they are WAYYY too pricy for my liking, so I started searching for a way to put MacOS on a Windows based computer. After a couple seconds, I found iDeneb, which was easy to install, but kinda glitchy on my laptop. So I decided to join this forum in order to get help for my own installations, but also provide help for others who might have various problems.

I know a lot about Windows, a little less lot about Linux ( Ubuntu , Debian, PFSense), and a bit about Mac. 

I am not a good English speaker because I'm not used to speak English, but I do understand everything. Please bear that in mind. 

That sums it up. Thanks!!!

Hello, all. My name is Yoojin.

 

I am joining after installing OS X on my Sony Vaio VPC-Z1390X with iAtkos 10.8.2. A quick search of the 'net will reveal that there is little or no documentation about OS X running on this particular model so I would like to post some information about how I got this far in the appropriate sub-forum of InsanelyMac.

 

Would somebody care to direct my next post?

Hi, I'm UrbanBard.

 

I spent some time over at TonyMacx86 and constructed one of their builds.

 

GA-Z77X-UD5H

Intel i7-3770

Intel H4000 graphics

16 Gb memory

SanDisk Extreme 120Gb SSD

Seagate Barracuda 1Tb 7200 rpm HDD

Corsair Enthusiast 650 Watt 80 plus Bronze PS

Corsair Carbide Black 500R Mid tower.

HP Pavillian 27 xi LED- lit Monitor

Logitech Z313 Speaker system

Sony AD-7280S-0B Optical drive

 

It's been a learning experience. It took a week or so before I was satisfied. I was always able to work my way though my problems. Everything works on my system, but my build isn't exotic. It has been an interesting experience. I'm likely to build a budget (Mavericks) system for my sister for Christmas. I think I'll build it the InsanelyMac way, although, that requires more knowledge.

 

The first Mac I used was a new Macintosh Se/30 (at work.)  I used a series of different computers in my later occupation as a facility engineer. My personal Mac's were a Mac II si, a Lime Green iMac (2001) and a 2007 flat screen iMac, until just recently.

 

This is the first time I've tried to build a computer and, for the most part, It went well. That may be a result of formerly being an electronic tech. I gave that up to go into management and to work as a System manager on a Cadam/ Catia system. This means that I mostly have experiance as a Mac user and on other computers by constructing layouts of computer installations. I never was a programmer or one who used terminal very much. Now, I am retired. This computer is vastly more powerful than I need. But, I intend to experiment on how I can use it. There is lots to learn and it seems that this place is more condusive to experimentation than TonyMacx86.  I could follow their methods, but I never learned why I did anything. It could just as well be mumbo-jumbo.

Hello! My name is Bart.

 

I'm not as tech savvy as most of you. So, I'd appreciate it if you'd be patient and keep the jargon at a basic level with me.

 

My goal is to take my old Dell Inspiron 1011 (aka, 10v) from 10.5.8 to 10.6.

 

If someone can guide me as to where I should post a more detailed question regarding this pursuit, I'd appreciate it.

hey guys, I'm Dan and I've been following the community from the sidelines for a line now. Needed a new rig and was torn between spending on an imac or just getting haswell. Thought it would be more fun to try my hand at this instead :)

      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:
