Fusion Drive - Dubbio stupido ma vorrei capire...

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ciao a tutti, 

 

posseggo un mac mini (late 2012) i7 con un fusion drive di 1Tb. Recentemente, tentando di partizionare il drive, è successo un casino. La capacità dell'HD è scesa da 1.12 Tb a 739Gb. Non essendomi addentrato bene nella logica del Fusion drive mi sono rivolto all'Apple Store per farmi ripristinare il mac alle condizioni di fabbrica. 

Con non poche difficoltà (la conoscenza di comandi da terminale era indispensabile) sono riusciti a sistemarlo.

Ora la disponibilità del mio hd è stata ripristinata.

 

Ho solo un dubbio stupido....sono certo che prima dell'invio in assistenza il mio HD segnalasse 1.12Tb di disponibilità (intendo quella che viene visualizzata sulla scrivania abilitando le informazioni del drive). Ora è passata a 1.11Tb. 

Naturalmente questa piccola differenza non fà la differenza, ma vorrei capire il perchè si sia lievemente rimpicciolita.

 

Ho pensato che, quando è stato acquistato, non ci fosse la partizione di recupero, perchè ho letto che alcuni mac non l'avevano...ma non ne sono convinto. Ora ovviamente c'è. Vorrei solo addentrarmi un pochino nel problema perchè ho la sensazione che, rigenerando il fusion, abbiano fatto qualcosa che non andava. 

 

Grazie a tutti per il supporto e le informazioni che mi fornirete.

 

Francesco

      Here is a new utility to patch the EFI firmware in VMware Workstation and Fusion to allow the non-server versions of Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and 10.6 (Snow Leopard) to run. Yoiu will need macOS unlocker 3 if you are using Workstation on non-Apple hardware. I still have to find a way to do this on ESXi as the UEFIPatch utility will not run in the ESXi console.
      This currently supports:
       
      Workstation 11/12/14/15 on Windows and Linux Workstation Player 7/12/14/15 on Windows and Linux Fusion 10/11 on macOS

      Hey guys, I have a ridiculously convoluted issue. Take a seat.
       
      I am trying to use Logic Pro X on a 2012 Mac Mini I have, but I currently have Snow Leopard OS X 10.6.8, and will need to update to Sierra 10.12. However, I realize I need to update to a newer OS such as El Capitan in order to be able to update to Sierra. Except I cannot sign into the App Store. I am greeted with an error message along the lines of "this computer or device cannot be verified." So I did some digging and it seems to be because my Ethernet port and Wifi don't work. I use a USB Wifi adapter to get around this but now it seems like I finally have to fix it for good so I can get into the App Store to get these updates I need.
       
      In System Preferences > Network, I do not see Ethernet or Wifi listed. Only my USB Wifi Adapter and Firewire. In System Profiler > Hardware > Ethernet Cards, it says, "This computer does not appear to have any PCI Ethernet cards installed."
       
      I'm pulling my hair out over here to get Logic Pro X on this computer, that's all that I really want, and that's all I want this computer to do. If you can help, God bless your soul.

      Hi all,

      I have 5 disks including four SSDS and a 4TB HDD configured in a CoreStorage (Fusion drive) volume.

      I have Filevault enabled also.

      When I turn on my hackintosh, I am presented with the Filevault screen to select my user, enter my password and continue to decrypt and boot macOS. This works around 80% of the time with no issues at all.

      Sometimes with seemingly no identifiable pattern, after I enter my password it just hangs on the Filevault screen with the loading bar and does not progress. There is no disk activity either. After a while of the hanging, it will just display the prohibitory sign against a black background.

      I have to force shut the hackintosh off with the power button and try to boot again. Usually after I do this, it will boot the second time.

      I'm currently running Sierra 10.12.6 but this has also happened when I tried 10.13 too.

      Clover is fully up to date as of today (r4380). 

      Does anyone know why this might occur?

      The only thing I have picked up on is the drives change disk identifiers and move themselves around (eg. /dev/disk1) during different boot ups so maybe it's getting confused when trying to decrypt and boot as a corestorage volume. I have no idea how to prevent this from happening either.

      Any help or suggestion would really be appreciated.

      My specs are:

      Motherboard: GA-Z97X-UD7 TH
      RAM: 16GB Corsair 1866MHZ Memory
      GFX: 2x Nvidia GTX 760
      CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K 4GHZ

      So I just got Yosemite up and virtualized in ESXi.
       
      However, I am using workstation as a console like the KB says to do after 6.5.
       
      So the benefit of the workstation is that sound can come out if you add the adapter. This works just fine with a window$ VM. (BTW the documentation says it shouldn't work)
       
      In the yosemite VM it just produces a white-noise static when the sounds should be played.
       
      This tells me that it is a driver issue, and should be able to work in theory.
       
      However, does anyone have experience with VMWare workstation and the sound in OS X?
       
      Thanks,

      Hey all!
       
      The Macbook Pro I used as my main computer is on its last legs, so I decided to cobble together some components I had from other builds into a “new” Windows machine. Thing is, even with some settings modifications and tools like RocketDock, I still miss the behaviors and aesthetic of my Mac ;c
       
      So, I’ve decided to pursue grabbing a new cpu/mobo/ram combo and building a Hackintosh/Windows hybrid machine. I had a couple questions regarding my boot drive, though.
       
      1. If the motherboard I select supports booting from an NVMe/PCIe M.2 SSD, can I boot macOS High Sierra from it? Will it necessitate a tool like Clover to do so? (I'm currently eyeing the ASRock Z270M Pro4, if that's relevant)
       

      2. If I partition this drive into two parts, can I format them separately for each OS- e.g. HFS+ on one half for macOS, NTFS or exFAT for Windows on the other? If not, can macOS be installed on an exFAT drive?
