    Fenvi FV-T919 Wifi/BT card At Newegg.com for $51.99

    Hard to tell, but looks a bit too wide. The connector on the rev of the card I have is so tiny! I've been making myself crazy trying to feed the 4 wires back into the little holes, but I'm close to giving up. Maybe i'll order one of these just to find out lol

    Fenvi FV-T919 Wifi/BT card At Newegg.com for $51.99

    Damn, my little bluetooth cable just ripped out of the tab that connects into the Fenvi card. Really flimsy connection and clearly i didn't baby it enough. A few internet searches led me here. Is there any way to buy a replacement cable that fits (mine is the rev with the small black tab, not...

    AMD Radeon Performance Enhanced SSDT

    I think I've done this right as I'm seeing stable/solid performance. But would be grateful if somebody could glance at my config.plist and let me know if I've botched anything. It's an OpenCore 0.5.8 build on a z390 with a 5700xt in a iMacPro1,1 mode Anything look amiss?

    AMD Radeon Performance Enhanced SSDT

    I'm using the SSDT and kext method for the 5700 XT in my OC 0.5.8 z390 build using SMBIOS iMacPro1,1 And I've seen a solid boost to my scores (from an average in the mid 40s on GeekBench to upper 60s). So thanks for that and making it easy! I do have one remaining question: I've tested both...

    AMD Radeon Performance Enhanced SSDT

    Sorry for what is likely a basic question, but I scanned through the thread and didn't see what I was looking for. I've got a 5700xt in my z390 0.5.8 OC dual-boot build. I'm using SMBIOS iMacPro1,1 with my iGPU off. It works great. But I'm intrigued about this approach to wringing some extra...

    AMD Radeon Performance Enhanced SSDT

    Random question on this. I saw this in the release notes for the latest WEG: "Add support to injecting Force_Load_FalconSMUFW from OpenCore" What does this mean for this effort? Anything? nothing? Does it simplify the solution?

    An iDiot's Guide To Lilu and its Plug-ins

    Looks like I got lucky. I used IOReg and searched for IGPU. It turned up the correct AAPL number (in reverse order) and correctly listed the model as Intel HD Graphics 630. So as you suggested, I'm guessing the hardware is just very similar to what Apple uses in a normal 18,3 era iMac. Because I...

    An iDiot's Guide To Lilu and its Plug-ins

    Thanks so much for the clear and detailed explanation of how this all works. I was about to dig in and double check a few of my settings but before doing so I double checked my current setup. I'm running mojave on a kabylake with a RX580. I have IGPU turned on in bios per instructions and I'm...

    USB Audio Interface (Zoom H6N) doesn't show up on 2 Hackintoshes?

    Very odd problem. I've been using hackintosh rigs for a couple of years now. And I've never really seen a USB issue like this before. I recently bought a Zoom H6N. It's a cool little device use to record live music. It has 2 mics built in, and 4 XLR inputs for additional mics/soundboard line...

    GA-Z77X-UD5H i2600k - Will not power off or sleep.

    I had the same problem with the exact same MB/CPU combo (which I purchased for the same reason, figuring it must work since it's a recommended kit of parts). In searching and trial and error, what eventually seems to have done the trick for me is disabling the xHCI mode in the bios/uefi...

    10.8.2 Brings Complete Native Support for NVIDIA GF100, GF110 and GK104

    Article: 10.8.2 Brings Complete Native Support for NVIDIA GF100, GF110 and GK104 Dumb question. What is the recommended method for undoing the patch we applied to make the GTX 670/680 work until now? I did a clean install with 10.8.2 last week, and I checked the box on that enabler (per the...

    AHCI3rdPartySATA fix for DVD Player / burning / optical

    Interesting finding. With this version of AHCI3rdParty I lost auto sleep. In digging into what was going on, I saw that in my system report, my marvel gsata controller (which is connected to two 7200 rpm drives I use for media) was now reported as "unknown" whereas under the usual AHCI3rdParty...

    AHCI3rdPartySATA fix for DVD Player / burning / optical

    :clap: I just installed this and it fixed the disappearing optical drive problem I've been having since switching back to BIOS from UEFI. Just out of curiosity, what happened, and why was this needed vs. the one that's in MultiBeast? Thanks for fixing my rig and any insight. Just trying to...

    Almost Perfect on z68-2600k-nvidia-670. Sometimes has reboot cycle on wake.

    Looks like that did the trick! Did a fresh install, ran multibeast as always, and had a successful first boot. Then I executed the terminal command from Duff (below) and rebuilt with Kext Utility. I confirmed via pmset -g assertions and pmset -g logs that nothing was going to block my...

    Almost Perfect on z68-2600k-nvidia-670. Sometimes has reboot cycle on wake.

    Alright then. Looks like patching AppleRTC is my next stop. Since I'm usually just running Multibeast, I'm not super familiar with the procedure for simply patching one file. Is the best way via terminal as described by Duffs below?
