    Happy 2016 InsanelyMac!

    By Mr. Xtreme, in OSx86,

    Happy new year InsanelyMac

    A lot has gone on in the past year, Intel's released Skylake (which still needs hackintosh dev love ), Apple released OS X 10.11 El Capitan, and laso just released the Source code for El Capitan this December thus enabling our great AMD gurus (Spakk, Bronya, Duran Keeley, Y2K4, etc.) to get El Capitan on AMD CPUs.
    Happy new Year and 2016 InsanelyMac!

  • Mr. Xtreme

    Apple has now released El Capitan 10.11.3 to developers, and users via the developers center, and Apple's OS X Public beta program respectively. Apple hasn't given any information on what fixes are included in the beta but it is probably more security fixes.

    What's new:
    Security fixes?
    Nothing else known so far.

    OS X Compatible Motherboard

    By Mr. Xtreme, in OSx86,

    OS X compatible motherboard!


    Gone are the days of having to to spend hours or even days getting your Hackintosh working thanks to a new motherboard made by QUO called the Z77MX-QUO-AOS (AOS stands for Any OS).

    The QUO AOS motherboard has Thunderbolt, Firewire, and uses Intel's LGA 1155 socket for Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge CPUs, which are natively supported by OS X. All you have to do is flash the modified UEFI made by HermitCrabLabs (links below), create a vanilla installation drive for OS X, boot the drive from the boot menu, install OS X, reboot and use this this file for audio and you're ready for an un-complicated Hackintosh.
    Features of the Z77MX-QUO-AOS motherboard;
    2 SATA 6 Gps + 4 SATA 3Gps,
    4 RAM slots supporting up to 32GB of DDR3 RAM,
    Intel's LGA 1155 socket supporting Sandy and Ivy Bridge CPU's,
    2 USB 3.0 + 4 USB 2.0 Ports on the back I/O, you can add six more USB 2.0 and 2 USB 3.0 connectors via the onboard headers,
    2 Firewire 800 headers on the back I/O + 1 Firewire 400 header on board,
    For display connectivity we have 1 pair of Intel-certified Thunderbolt ports, 1 miniDP port, and one HDMI and DVI port
    Realtek ALC 892 audio codec,
    Intel 82574L Gigabit Ethernet.

    Expansion card slots;
    1 PCI-E x16 slot plus a PCI-E x8 for SLI or 1/2 graphics cards,
    2 PCI-E 1x slots for network cards, bluetooth, etc.

    All in all It's a bit outdated on the CPU-side but a good board never the less.
    Continue discussion and find setup instructions/support.
