I jusst bought a 500gb crucial mx500 to see wheter the slow response of my hackintosh was due to the old 2.5" 500gb wd black hdd that i savaged from a broken laptop at home to install osx the first time but i don't know how to transfer my datas, os, programs and bootloader on the new drive since crucial only shows how to clone the drive but doesn't (obiously) refer to the clover boot partition, how can i do that?
and what filesystem should i use? apfs or hfs+?
I can also use windows or linux programs since i'm on a triple boot setup
ho recentemente acquistato un ssd crucial mx500 (arrivato stamattina) e non ho idea di come trasferire il sistema operativo e clover dal mio attuale wd black 500 (2.5" che ho preso da un portatile a caso in casa) su questo nuovo ssd per vedere se questo rende il sistema più reattivo, sul sito crucial dicono solo come copiare i dati e os sul disco ma niente (ovviamente), cosa devo fare per sostituire bootloader, os, programmi e dati su questo nuovo disco? Ho in dualboot win 10 pro (che avvia da un altro 128gb ssd) quindi posso usare anche programmi da win, da una distro linux o da pennetta, non ho usato un granchè osx in quanto l'hdd credo lo renda lento quindi non sono molto esperto in queste cose su osx
Inoltre mi conviene rimanere su hfs+ o usare apfs come file system?
I am new, I hope I am posting in the correct forum.
My specs: Processor: Core i5 6500 Skylake 3.2ghz
Mobo: Gigabyte h170-d3h
M2SSD: WD Black 256gb PCIe (Mac OSx)
SSD: Samsung 860 Evo (WIndows 10)
HDD: WD Blue 1TB
GPU: Radeon RX 480
Monitor: BenQ RL2460 24"
I was able to install High Sierra on a new m2 drive, that I added to the above configuration with windows 10 already installed.
I had a few issues during install, including the monitor turning off at boot screen.
Unfortunately, this persists even now. It turns off at about 60% of the progress bar, and to turn it on again I have to unplug/plug back my hdmi.
Additionally, while all of the usb ports worked during install and while running it out of the clover I had on the usb stick, only the rear ones appear to work now.
The audio doesn't work either, though I added the correct patch according to my mobo
Lastly, my other drives are not recognized in the bios anymore. They run fine from boot override but they don't show up in the boot priority (while multiple entries of mac OS do, and they seem to increase in number at every reboot)
I've got the intel 600p M.2 1024gb ssd and installed it as a second drive. High sierra 10.13.3 become very slow and even unresponsive when I copy a large amout of data to it - the more data copied, the slower it is and I see the kernel task consuming cpu, but not too much - about 70-80%. After 100-200 gb the whole system hangs and I see nothing in the logs (probably I just don't realize what shall I look for). It has 512 bytes sector size and, as Intel said, it cannot be changed. Not sure it is the source of the problem, but anyway - is it possible to use it with high sierra 10.13.3 at all?
Hi guys, i'm trying to help a friend of mine trying to install osx(possibly high sierra) on his pc with the following specs:
Asrock 990fx extreme 3
8gb of fury Kingston ddr3 ram(2x4)
Radeon hd 7950
128gb ssd( crucial m550)
A couple of hdds I don't remember the brand(maybe a seagate barracuda and a dumb old disk for data)
We tried to install it using the regular clover+high showers installer but we couldn't get it to reach the installer, then we tried osx-amd(don't know if i can talk about it there, sorry if i can't) and we still couldn't get to the installer.
Is there a guide i can use to install osx in that machin, i tried to search in the forum but i couldn't find it.
