    Official CustoMac Mini 2011 Guide and Notes (in progress)

    Update time! My daughter managed to break her 1TB Western Digital drive by dropping something heavy on the computer case, sending the read/write head into the disk at very high speed. So, I headed down to Best Buy and managed to pick up an EVO Pro 250 GB SSD Drive and a GT 710 graphics card...

    Official CustoMac Mini 2011 Guide and Notes (in progress)

    Just as an update: I'm in the process of a fresh install using High Sierra, and a newly-purchased GT710 replacing the old graphics card I had in the system. Seems to be working just fine: I'm going to report on this all when I've finished with the install.

    [SOLVED] Missing SDD/HDD Disks on Fresh High Sierra Installs

    Oh my goodness. I can't like this thread enough! Thank you. I have been struggling for hours with this, and finally googled it. I assumed it was third-party ACHI drivers, until I realized that they weren't doing anything...

    Official CustoMac Mini 2011 Guide and Notes (in progress)

    Do you mean that it gets half-way through booting and gives you the prohibited sign? I'm in the process of trying to get one of our two H67N-USB3-B3 boards running, and so far, I've got to the point where I can see the installer window. Sadly, the drives weren't recognized (new drive...

    Enabling AMD RX 4XX cards in Sierra.

    So It's not a major issue, and it's windows rather than OS X, but I've noticed my hack (Z77X-UP5-TH) doesn't like booting into windows with the IGFX set as primary. It'll boot, but it'll use the internal graphics and won't let my network come up either. Turning the network off and on again...

    Enabling AMD RX 4XX cards in Sierra.

    While I'm on the subject, does anyone have any cool utilities for helping me keep IGFX running while booting into Windows? Right now, Windows 10 doesn't want to let me use the RX480 as primary if I boot with IGFX...

    Enabling AMD RX 4XX cards in Sierra.

    Well this is as frustrating as hell. New XFX RX 480. Followed guide, modified kexts, but still no acceleration. Boo. Will try booting with the monitors turned off... Edit. Waited till things booted, still no acceleration, x4100 not loading :( Am sad doggo. EDIT: Am stupid doggo. Remember...

    macOS 10.12.4 Update

    Just a warning: my OS X install balked when updating. I've got my System on a different drive to my /user folder, and it completely screwed the pooch. I had a backup of course, so all's well that end's well. I'll try the update again...

    Time to start again..

    Howdy folks. Sorry I've been a stranger. It seems like the time has come for my monster build to get replaced. I'm trying to decide just what I'm going to replace it with. With YouTubing now my primary income stream (and a potential big-name client in the process of discussing licensing...

    [Success] GA-Z77X-UP5-TH -i7 3770k NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Yosemite, 1TB RAID SSD Vanilla Install WIT

    Another quick update from this system. A few weeks ago, it decided that it hated me completely, causing kernel panics, refusing to boot up, and eventually refusing to do anything. It turns out the 12TB RAID 0 configuration (where my /user folders were) had decided to corrupt itself. Luckily...

    OS X 10.11.4 Update

    Hi guys and gals, As some of you may remember, I'm running Ozmosis bootloader on a customac pro based on the Z77X-UP5TH Gigabyte board. When I started the update I thought I'd be fine... But it turns out that Ozmosis is also victim to the problem with memory allocation for the Kernel...

    Rocket Raid 2720SGL Boot Panics on 10.11.2

    So this gets weirder and weirder. SAS drives now working fine (after I deleted the WebGUI and installed a new, clean OS). After some juggling of the internal cabling, I connected three SATA drives to the card too, and arranged them in an 8GB RAID 5 array. But while the BIOS would let me...

    Rocket Raid 2720SGL Boot Panics on 10.11.2

    Update: Removed the Web GUI package and everything is peachy again. I would recommend anyone considering this card stays a LONG WAY away from the drivers from HighPoint, instead preferring the built-in support in 10.10 and 10.11 onwards. Will keep you all up to date with progress as time...

    Rocket Raid 2720SGL Boot Panics on 10.11.2

    So, this one is causing me to tear out my hair... Click here for my base system (although it's been tweaked a little now and has 10.11.2 on it..) I'm still running OSMOSIS as my boot loader, and I'm still keeping the BIOS settings as they were in the original post. Additionally, I'm now...
