BlueEyed build [Still in progress]

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

 

Well... After I bought some Apples and exploded my old android, I wanted to make something new in my working/home place. First time i was installing Mac OSX themes for Windows. I thought it is so hard to install Mac OSX, and when i made some kind of "plan", I backed up my data, downloaded OSX, formatted disk, and tried to start the installation. I had errors like "still waitting for root device", and pci errors, just because I had old hardware. Then, in one great day, my motherboard and power supply burnt out ( It wasn't my fault, there are were energy issues in @ my district ). Then i just thought to build Custom Mac.. just for "test". I am thinking to buy 'real' Mac soon. So i bought the following components:

And Mountain Lion installed without any errors! Great, I made that I wanted!

 

Now, you can see how I was building it.

 

Connected every component and restored Mac OSX 10.8.4 from my Time Capsule.. Tada!

I don't want to change information in 'About this Mac' for now. 

 

 

Well, my pc case has finally arrived!

So, i took it out from box, looks awesome. ( I already attached PSU ).

Let's place mobo and another components inside!

That's how it looks with 'mirror' effect

I want to replace those USB2.0s to 3.0 ones, also, front audio works.

That's how hard drives and PSU are installed in.

I am using HDMI cable, my display has better collibration support for it.

BUT ONE THING THAT I DIDN'T KNEW - It has L.E.Ds inside.

So, i dis-attached some thingies, and made it branded! ;D

This is some my stuff, as disk using, wifi, etc

Hosting second home WiFi network because i can't make this card work with internet ;(

As you can see, it's fine.

Well, i finally made my wifi to see networks. Added 168c,0301. But if it connects it's freezes ;(

Current case is MidTower ATX. It is very small and compactible. More like Micro ATX.

 

Currently, Geekbench shows 7600 points when I'm using 10.9 & 8100 points when I am using 10.8.4. I think the slow part are my HDDs. ( Note, not Solid state drives ).

 

 

I am going to upgrade my specifications soon. I will post every progress there. I am going to make some kind of 'tuning' for my CustoMac. 

 

TODO list:

 * working wifi internet

 * wait for apple & "blue eyed" stickers and buy mirrored acrylic sheet to make it look more awesome!

 * replace usb2.0 by usb3.0

 * make it more quiet

 * (optional) buy ssds

 * (optional) buy more ram memory

 

 

Thanks for watching! Leave comments please! ;p

Nice build!

 

What I would have done with the apple logo is make it into a stensil and reversed it. So the big blue circle becomes covered, but the apple symbol shines blue - like on the back of mac books.

But that's me :P

 

Still looks like a great build

      Ho provato tutti i modi ma sono arrivato alla conclusione che ha bisogno di una patch DSDT.
      Ciao, ho recentemente un hackintosh nel mio laptop e devo risolvere l'attacco video HDMI che non ha eseguito quando collego il mio laptop alla TV.
      le foto con queste informazioni sono state fatte con un programma quando che avrei vinto 10 nell'altra foto l'informazione di hackintosh.
      Acer Aspire 5741g Modello High Sierra System!
      Caratteristiche:
      CPU: Intel Core I3 350M 2.27Ghz Arrandale 32nm Tecnologia
      Ram: 6: 00GB
      Grafica: Monitor Pnp generico (1366x768 Ghz) 1024mb Nvidia GeForce GT 320M (Acer Incorporated)
      Archiviazione: 465 GB Sata
      Driver Optiocal: Optiarc DVD RW- AS-7585H
      Audio: dispositivo audio ad alta degradazione
      Qualcuno può aiutarmi!?! E 'la terza volta che faccio questo post in questo gruppo visto che sono nuovo nel mondo hackintosh preferisco se qualcuno è capace a risolvere il mio problema che lo faccia in remoto così non faccio sbagli.

      Hello,
       
      Here I am looking for the answer of new Mac OS Catalina features and what type of Mac will support this new Os??
    • By JohnOl
      Hi,
       
      I've just upgraded to OSX Catalina from Mojave on my VMWare Workstation 15.5, running on Windows 10.
       
      The Sidecar feature is there, and after connecting my iPad Pro 12.9" 2018 running iPadOS 13.1.2 via USB cable, it is recognized as a display device in the Sidecar preferences.
       
      However, when I enable it, the Sidecar screen on the iPad is completely black / blank. I can't send anything over, and if I mouse over the green + on an app window (i.e. Safari) to move it to the iPad, nothing happens and the screen remains blank. The sidebar will only appear after I turn it off and on again at Catalina's Sidecar preferences. The buttons there actually work. For example, if I move Safari over to iPad, the screen is blank, but if I activate the on-screen virtual keyboard and type there, the text actually goes to the Safari's search bar (the Safari still appears on the desktop).
       
      Is this a compatibility issue with VMWare, where Catalina can't properly recognize the second screen? I've tried changing host VM settings too, i.e. to "host setting" or 2 monitors, enable / disable 3D acceleration, nothing works. the iPad is definitely correctly connected, as I can browse / backup its data at the Finder.
       
      Can anyone please advice on how to enable Sidecar properly in VMWare? Thank you.
       
      Below is a screenshot of how it looks like on my iPad:
