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.
Do you guys think it is worth buying to turn into a mac mac mini? or should i just build a mac mini from the recommended parts?
Intel Core i7 - 4765T Quad Core
nVidia GeForce GTX GPU w/2GB GDDR5
1TB 7200RPM HDD
2x2 802.11 Wireless Card
Please let me know what you guys think. Looks like a deal but not sure.
Ciao a tutti, sono un nuovo utente del forum.
E da circa 2 mesi mi sono appassionato del mondo dell'Hackintosh....ho infatti un dual Boot (Win10 e Yosemite) sul mio Portatile Samsung RF511 i7
e da 2 mesi appunto ho comprato una vecchia Apple TV 1' Gen sulla quale cercavo disperatamente di installargli un OS X.
Ho avuto successo installandogli Tiger 10.4.8 ma era troppo primitivo....quindi ho optato per Leopard ma tutti i siti con le guide, non erano disponibili...insomma un vicolo cieco!
Ho avuto la brillante idea di "svuotare" la Apple TV in modo da inserirgli dentro una scheda madre che sia però compatibile con Hackintosh!
Ho visto che ci sono Mini PC intel come il Voyo V3 che sono abbastanza performanti e piccoli per stare dentro al Case della mia Apple TV.
La mia domanda è: Esiste una mini Scheda Madre gia Assemblata (Vedi Voyo v2-v3 o Beelink B7 dotati di processore intel) che sia in grado di far girare una versione di Mac OS X in modo da avere una specie di MAC Mini fatto in casa?
Salve a tutti ho un vecchio mac mini

Hey guys! This is my first post after having registered a while back. I usually tend to do my research, browse through forums to find answers to my questions and figure things out on my own, but I'm stumped and need some help here. I have a 2006 Mac Mini that I upgraded to a 2 GHz Core 2 Duo (T7200, I believe.) and I also upgraded the firmware from the 1,1 (MM11.0055.08B) to the 2,1 boot ROM (MM21.009A.B00). I have reset PRAM and SMC, but I still have kernel panic for different reasons. Sorry, that I don't have the reports available to post some examples right now, but I've had several issues since upgrading the EFI such as fan issues, freezing up, not being able to install an app or update (Installer failures) and sudden need to press and hold the power button to shut down just to name a few. If someone can guide me as to rolling back the firmware that would be awesome. I have included the stock firmware and the 1,1 to 2,1 files (with Terminal script used to install it.) in case any of that is needed. I pulled the stock boot ROM with unpkg. As far as which OS X version I'm using, these errors/failures have occurred under Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion through MLPostFactor 0.3. I have even had difficulty performing a clean install using the 10.6.3 retail disk because it would fail. Installing Lion failed a few times as has the MLPostFactor install. At this point, I'd like to rollback and then try reinstalling the 2,1 firmware. Maybe that can help? I tried reinstalling the 2,1 files and didn't work (I couldn't get it to work.). I'm guessing it's because of the boot ROM version incompatibility, my ignorance, or both.. I've tried downgrading by using the Firmware Restore CD 1.7 by booting with it and MacminiFirmwareUpdate.dmg stated that it is incompatible (boot ROM incompatibility being that it is lower than what is installed), so naturally, neither option i attempted worked. Maybe I need some terminal script and/or stock boot ROM mod to downgrade much in the same vein that I upgraded to 2,1 in the first place? Or maybe some script to help me out in forcing the installer to restore or something? Any methods you come up with are fine with me as I'm able to follow instructions to the letter. I'm not savvy with Terminal, so I apologize for not knowing my way around! I should pick up a book or two soon and learn it. Any help would be appreciated and if I confused anyone, ask and I'll clarify as best I can. Thank you in advance!
