    [GUIDE] Install Catalina/Mojave on Dell 7040 SFF

    NVMe worked for me out of the box on Mojave. I have yet to try Catalina on this box (7040MT). I've had some issues with the computer not waking from screen timeout (well, waking to a black display I). I can get it back if I vnc into the computer and change the rotation of the screen 90 degrees...

    SOLVED: First gen Blackmagic Intensity Pro card now works

    I'm having trouble with it working on a haswell era hack running Mojave with an RX570. The Intensity Pro card is recognized by Desktop Video and I can set it for playback in Davinci Resolve but, within about 20 seconds of opening a project, I get a beach ball that doesn't go away. If I disable...

    [GUIDE] Install Catalina/Mojave on Dell 7040 SFF

    I wasn't trying to hijack the thread, but instead to provide some extra info for other people looking for EFI solutions for the 7040MT. I also found that the HDMI audio issue is just a matter of un-commenting some framebuffer stuff that was already in your (trs96) EFI that was posted earlier in...

    [GUIDE] Install Catalina/Mojave on Dell 7040 SFF

    Quick follow-up. I think what's missing for the built-in audio is that the layout-id property was commented out. I erased the hash at the beginning and walla, I have an input and output in the audio prefs. I still don't have HDMI audio.

    [GUIDE] Install Catalina/Mojave on Dell 7040 SFF

    Done. But still no change. Adding IntelMausiEthernet.kext makes the built-in ethernet work.

    [GUIDE] Install Catalina/Mojave on Dell 7040 SFF

    @trs96 I've tried your EFI with this 7040MT with Mojave and although graphics work (with 1.5GB ram), sound, ethernet and USB patching does not. I got the USB sorted but still not having luck with the sound or ethernet stuff. I updated to the latest Lilu, AppleALC, WhateverGreen. One Clover...

    [GUIDE] Install Catalina/Mojave on Dell 7040 SFF

    @trs96, I thought I saw a comment from you in a thread somewhere that video editors might be better off with a Skylake machine than the Haswell era units. But, off course, after looking a bit, I can't seem to find that comment. I suppose I was hearing my own thoughts. I bought this 7040MT with...

    [GUIDE] Install Catalina/Mojave on Dell 7040 SFF

    My 7040 MT with 6700 processor sports a whopping 240W power supply. And it's a skinny thing too so options for replacement are few. I've considered trying the RX570 (4GB) card with the stock supply by using a SATA to PCIe power plug adaptor (what I think you're describing) but I'm concerned...

    The 4K Dell OptiMac - 9020 MT - Core i7-4790 - Radeon RX 570 - LG 4K IPS Monitor

    So, this is a follow up from a little bit back. I had trouble with the USB 3 ports. I installed hackintool and poked around in there looking for an obvious way to clear the kext cache. I didn't find it but I did get a pop-up suggesting that I install the latest version of Clover so I went...

    The 4K Dell OptiMac - 9020 MT - Core i7-4790 - Radeon RX 570 - LG 4K IPS Monitor

    So, I booted with a Linux Mint 20 live USB and all the SS ports work there (and appear as 5Gb speed as well). So this is a Mac OS issue. Nicksoph, I tried your method but got exactly the same scenario. The top SS port on the front is the only SS port that will see a USB device (USB 3.0 Flash...

    The 4K Dell OptiMac - 9020 MT - Core i7-4790 - Radeon RX 570 - LG 4K IPS Monitor

    I seem to be having the same problem but with a 9020 SFF model. Only the top SS USB3.0 on the front works out of the 4 SS USB3.0 ports on the machine. All the USB 2.0 ports seem to work fine. Any USB device plugged into any of the 3 non-working ports does not show up in System Information under...

    Why we do hackintosh?

    I have become far too "familiar" with MacOS and can't yet make the leap to something else. Linux has come a long way and I would be cool with it but it's missing some important apps. Windows; I have very little interest. I just can't see myself going there. My reason for hackintosh is that...

    Feature request: Search within thread

    @ Archangeliques, That looks like it is what we seek but I find that it just finds other threads even if I select "this thread". Perhaps it's borken?

    Looking for Clover settings for I3-4370 CPU

    I had this machine running ok on High Sierra but a few things were never quite right and after some hardware issues I ended up trying a fresh install of Mojave. I can't get the HD4600 graphics kext to load. I've tried the iMac 14.2 and 15.1 definitions as well as most of the other suggestions...

    How to change clover theme

    Hmm. I'm having trouble getting the theme to change. I can see the themes in the theme folder and have tried playing with them in the theme manager. But it always defaults to the stock default. And I can't seem to find this NVRAM.plist file either. Mookmill makes it sound like it's in the...
