    USB 3 causing freezes on GA-Z68XP UD3 10.9.3

    Bad advice. The kext did work well for a time but I think it is one I tried before and it results in the drives just magically ejecting themselves improperly. I see this thread has not really generated any views but if anyone has solved a similar experience, I'm willing to try things. Thanks

    USB 3 causing freezes on GA-Z68XP UD3 10.9.3

    Maybe Solved - I did a google search with information I didn't have the first time I looked and came up with a post on these forums that suggested going to http://www.osx86.net/files/download/337-kext-for-etron-ej168-usb3/ for a driver. The post was a bit unclear and seemed to suggest that...

    USB 3 causing freezes on GA-Z68XP UD3 10.9.3

    Title says it all pretty much. Everything was fine on my system under 10.9.2 but when I upgraded to .3 I could no longer use my USB ports unless the device was plugged in when I booted. I tried some of the fixes people used under 10.9.1 and .2 but had no success. I had a seagate kext that I...

    Install to VM fusion 6

    Good times - I will check that out. After I made my unibeast drive I deleted the install mavericks app because my system is on a 128GB SSD and I needed the room. I should be able to grab it and give that a go. Much obliged!

    Install to VM fusion 6

    As the title suggests I am trying to install Mav in VM fusion 6. I currently have a unibeast install USB stick but VMware will not open it as a bootable installation media. Where do I need to start to get this working? I am trying to get my iLife and iWork suites updated finally and I...

    Any discrete GPUs working?

    Thanks for the info guys. I will continue to look at the laptops, perhaps focusing on rigs from ASUS and Gigabyte meant for gaming. I think it is fairly safe to say that it's unlikely a laptop will not also make use of the integrated graphics to save battery. Maybe by the time I can afford an...

    Any discrete GPUs working?

    Hey guys I am in need of a new laptop and would prefer to run OSX most of the time. However, a discrete graphics card is pretty much a requirement of mine but I have not been seeing anything promising when I search. Does anyone have a *modern* laptop with a working discrete GPU? Current or...

    Guide for Installing Mavericks on Two Z68X-UD3H Systems - One Using HD3000 / One Using 6850

    Guide for Installing on Z68X-UD3H - i7-2600K - HD3000 Great news! I have a lot of apps from various sources and I am very unorganized (not to mention between Steam, Origin, WoW and Diablo I would have to download 100+GB) so I prefer the upgrade method myself. Glad to hear USB3 is working...

    Guide for Installing Mavericks on Two Z68X-UD3H Systems - One Using HD3000 / One Using 6850

    Guide for Installing on Z68X-UD3H - i7-2600K - HD3000 Thanks for the thread Stork! I am curious what luck you are having with USB 3? Did you have to manually remove another USB3 kext to get it functioning? I know these boards have always been finnicky with the USB 3 - I have an External...

    KP on Mountain Lion fresh install GA-Z68XP-UD4

    Sorry for such a delay - I don't get around here too often. I'm not sure off the top of my head what it could be, it has been a long while since I did my install. I assume you can boot using the rboot disc or the unibeast USB drive as your bootloader? There were one or two BIOS tweaks that I...

    KP on Mountain Lion fresh install GA-Z68XP-UD4

    I have a similar board and I do not have nullcpupowermanagement. Not sure if that is what's throwing the error, but I would delete that, then repair permissions in MB. While you are in MB, you should also make use of the SSDT in order to get your cpu operating the way it should. I am also...

    Streamlined install with a current Mac

    Thanks for the reply. That is about what I expected, but I wanted to look into it since my pal is across the ocean from me and I won't be able to give any hands on help. I didn't want to go off the track from the well documented methods here without being sure.

    Streamlined install with a current Mac

    I am running ML on a homebuilt PC thanks to the tools and knowledge from this site, and I have some friends who are also interested in the experience. The question is, can he skip some steps being that he already has a mac mini? What I specifically envision is installing ML to an external drive...

    KP in ML - Chameleon issue perhaps?

    Thanks for the advice, I hadn't thought of that for some reason. During testing, however, it didn't change anything. I unplugged my Lion HD and had the same failure within minutes of booting up. I unplugged the SSD and then plugged it into the cable I had removed from my Lion HD to see if...
