Hi, I'm Peter, from Germany, but have been around in the world, having lived ten years abroad in different countries. My computer experience goes back to 1984, when I bought my first computer, an Apple IIc. However, for most of my professional life I had to use Windows. Now, I have a nice laptop, an HP Elitebook 8440p, with a Magnesium alloy case, and am converting it into a hackintosh. I joined here during the last week of March 2014, and it took me about a week from zero to having a successful first installation using the "vanilla guide" (even though I still need to boot from USB with -x -v -f). See http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/297268-successful-installation-of-os-x-mavericks-1092-on-hp-elitebook-8440p/.

Something similar here, except that I have spent over 20 years in other European countries, including yours, that is beautiful.

Hi everyone!

 

My name's Steve, I'm a software developer by trade (mostly in the .NET world, with a lot of web services and frontend work), and I'm new to the forums but not to OSX86 - I had ran 10.5 using iAtkos for a little while before buying my 2009 Macbook Pro and I've been using a dual boot win7/mavericks 3570k/ga-z77n-wifi/radeon 7770 workstation for about a year now. 

 

When I got back into it, I unfortunately went with the "beast" tools from tonymac. I was never really satisfied with how little control they give me, or how little you're actually able to learn using them. I've also since learned of the sordid history, and I refuse to use stolen code. I've registered here so I can start learning the real nuts and bolts.
 

Aside from the workstation I've got another "spare parts" system that is working except the HD2500 integrated graphics (so far I boot in safe mode) that I'm trying to finish for my sister because her 2008 Macbook Pro just died, and a Dell e1505 that works except the x1400, that I'm playing with just 'cause otherwise it sits in my basement doing nothing.

      Rules 
      Our goal is ensure that the forum remains a helpful & friendly place to learn about how to run Mac OS X on non-Apple hardware, and of course other general banter. We want you to be able to discuss anything and everything here, and to do so we ask that you check out these guidelines for forum use.
       
      Do not upload anywhere else files when developers specifically ask not to. We take this matter very seriously, as developers are the very heart of our community.
       
      No Flaming. This includes racism, threatening, personal attacks, victimization or hateful content. Retaliation will not be tolerated either; if a member has broken a rule, please use the report feature on the forum and the staff will deal with the situation appropriately.
       
      No posting of direct or indirect links to warez or pirated pieces of software, this includes cracks, serials and torrents.
       
      Do not publicly argue the decision of a moderator. If you disagree with a moderator take it up with them in private via PM.
       
      Only one (1) login is allowed per member. Duplicate accounts will be banned or deleted.
       
      Bumping of posts is not permitted. Other than being less annoying it also keeps the posts more informative.
       
      Meaningless and useless posts may be removed at Moderator's discretion.
       
      Only post your post once (1). This keeps the forum cleaner and makes it easier to find what you are looking for.
       
      No advertising or business offers of any kind.
       
      No posting of copyrighted material. This includes copying and pasting news articles from news websites.
       
      Attached materials must come with clear descriptions of what they are and what they do, linking to this information elsewhere is not sufficient.
       
      Materials derived from Open Source must include source code, as well as an explanation of what has been done to it.
       
      Discussion of P2P, torrent sites, or similar download sites of any kind will not be tolerated. We do not want to know your illegal downloading habits.
       
      Do not post spyware or any other malware. This includes linking to other sites which may contain it.
       
      Posting just to promote another site, product, or service (spamming) is not allowed. This site is not here for you to promote your own or anyone else's material.
       
      Discussion of commercial spin-offs of the OSx86 scene is allowed if it’s to understand their existence, but no discussion of how to use them, nor any support for these commercial spin-offs are allowed as they are not in the spirit of the OSx86 scene. Example of commercial spin-off: tonymacx86.
      Why InsanelyMac does not support tonymacx86 VERY IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ! (ABOUT TONYMACX86 AND iATKOS M / Y / EC / SR)  
      Posting Guidelines
       
      If you have a question please do your best to use the search feature and search the forum before creating a new topic.
       
      Post in the correct forum and read the forum description. This will make sure that your post will not be removed.
       
      Pick an appropriate title and tags (if any) for your post. A good title makes it easier to find what you are looking for. Using informative tags allows for improved searching of related topics.
       
      All posts must be clearly written and easy to read. For example, if you have long blocks of text, use the Code option, etc. Limit "empty lines"
      as much as possible, use punctuation where you can and be concise. Posts may be edited for this reasons by InsanelyMac staff at their discretion.
       
      Please remember that you are in a public forum, a bit of courtesy is always welcome. It's always nice to start by saying "Hi" or "Hello" before asking a question or seeking help. Also a "thank you" would be appreciated, especially if the help you get is effective.
       
      Your topic does not deserve any more attention than others seeking help hence topic titles must reflect their content, and topic titles containing things like: 'please help' 'look here' 'cash reward' 'urgent' or other inaccurate descriptions will be removed. This includes all-caps titles.
       
      Give your hardware specs when necessary (asking for support) and any other time where it may be beneficial to have them listed.
       
      Signatures, Avatars and Nicks
       
      Keep your signature/avatar clean and tidy - should you receive a PM from the staff regarding your signature/avatar, please make the requested alterations or it may be removed/shortened appropriately.
      To keep pages loading fast for everyone, we request that your signatures and avatars contain no animations or high-definition graphics of any kind.
      Signatures should be no more than 6 lines of text using a regular font. If you can't fit all of your system specs in that you'd like, why not create a small graphic to contain the information?

      They should also contain no referral or affiliate program graphics.
       
      Avatars should be in "good taste," a qualification that is broad enough to let us determine what is and isn't. Goth-devil-child-wild-eyed-in-the-violent-blackness probably qualifies as being in bad taste. Nothing offensive, pornographic, or vulgar.
       
      Nicknames must be readable by the system (without question marks). This will ensure that your nickname can be searched, and that other users can contact you. They should also not contain staff member groups (administrator, moderator, developer, etc.) to prevent confusion.
      Nicknames should also show respect to the community, thus nothing containing offensive language. Email addresses must be real (nothing like bugmenot or similar). Accounts not in line with the last two rules will be edited or deleted without warning.
       
      Policing
      Do not publicly discuss the decision of a moderator. If there is any issue with a decision of a staff member PM them or contact an admin.
      Moderators have the ability to suspend or impose posting restrictions upon accounts based on the user's history. Records are kept to keep track of user's behavior and point out repeat offenders. Attempts to circumvent posting restrictions will lead to your account being banned, and any other accounts affiliated with your account being banned also.
      These rules cover a broad spectrum and are set up to preserve a free and open (and fun) place for discussion. They, in conjunction with common sense and good judgment, should steer you in the right direction. We're all human and we know that people make mistakes... but that's also not an excuse. More rules are subject to appear on this board as we see fit, so please check back from time to time for your own benefit.
       
      Thanks for joining our community and helping make it the best it can be.
       
      In case the rules localizations should differ, the English rules are the standard.
