    [Updated] wildwillow's Haswell Build: GA-Z87X-OC - i7-4770K - HD4600+GT 640

    I have a similar build with the freezing issue. Originally I used and i5 processor but just change to the i7-4770K hoping that would help. It didn't. Like several other people I am hoping to find some idea to fix it

    I swapped processor now I have no mouse in osx, windows still works

    I got windows working again but I'm not sure if I really fixed anything. Last time I started the machine and selected the windows drive to boot from I noticed that the order had changed. Since I first assembled the machine the "system reserved" selection was right next to osx but now one of...

    General Advice Needed for my first Hackintosh build...

    Location of mavericks update download

    Thanks but I don't see it there. Don't see it in download or desktop either. There was a message window saying that it had downloaded and was ready to install but I didn't install it (unless it happened without me knowing). When I go to system update now it does not show 10.9.4 available for...

    Location of mavericks update download

    My machine recently downloaded the update for 10.9.4 but I do not want to install it. Where is the downloaded file, so I can delete it? I have since changed the settings in system preferences/appStore to stop automatic downloads. Thanks!
