I'm sorry for asking it. But our sytems are nearly the same except RAM. I've kingston X.M.P. DDR3 But i don't think that would be so challenging.


I'm trying over and over with the same system. I can't get in to install screen on either [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] nor myHack represented installer USB.


I've red all documents about it but i can't even get the installation proccess.


I'm not familiar with UEFI Bios so I can't be sure whether there is something wrong there?


If you've some time, could you post the steps? Not in every detail just the key operations.


Thank you.

Yes i finally installed. But The only this two execption;


Realtek ALC898 HD Audio, and USB 3.0 support... Everytime i try to hack ALC898 com.apple.HDA...etc. fails or kernel panics. I've an audioless and usb 3.0less mac now. :(


Yes there is 6 core/12 virtual core, all ram mounted and working properly and GTX670 with Cuda enabled works...


Anyway my mouse scroll goes wrong. But it doesn't matter for now.
