    Apple Updates Mac Lineup

    I think what he meant was that you can't upgrade the SSD when you first buy. Why should you have to discard a 256GB drive and think of another use for it to change it to a 512GB one?

    Boot order problem

    Hello all, I have 3 physical disks in my hack. 1= Yosemite 2= Windows 7 3= Windows 8.1 With the menu installed with Multibeast the disks show up correctly. The problem is, if I choose Windows 8.1 Windows 7 loads. If I set the boot order in the BIOS to 1,3,2 then Windows 8.1 loads as the second...

    Do you own a real Mac?

    This is a really old poll. SInce I last voted I bought a MBP, but can't put it in, since I "already voted" :D

    Hdmi fix

    While nobody doubts Toleda's knowledge of making HDMI sound work for many motherboards, for me his solutions are just a puzzle. I tried several times, but somehow they never seem to work. There are too many "ifs, buts and maybe-s" for me to figure it out. At the end I usually just restore from...

    What Router Do You Use?

    NetGear D6300, works well. Initially had a problem with it for a couple of weeks, not being able to access the setup functions through the browser. I had to reset it and set it up from scratch every time. At the end the technical support team at Netgear advised me to take it back to the...

    Agrajag's Z97M-D3H i5-4690K Build

    By running the Gigabyte auto tuneup utility that comes with the motherboard (runs on Windows only:thumbdown:) you can have a Geekbench score of around 14,000 and no headaches. Dead solid performance afterwards.

    Guide: Update OS X Mavericks to OS X Yosemite Using UniBeast and MultiBeast

    Thank you for this comment. Tony does say this in his instructions, 3. Remove /System/Library/Extensions/GenericUSBXHCI.kext if present but after installing Yosemite it appears again. My USB ports were so flaky I almost gave up on the whole thing. After booting I had to try all USB ports for...

    Guide: Update OS X Mavericks to OS X Yosemite Using UniBeast and MultiBeast

    I have been trying to upgrade Mavericks to Yosemite with partial success after what seemed interminable failures. 1. Of the 8 USB ports I have, only 3 USB3 ports work on the motherboard and none of the USB2. That's what threw me when I couldn't use the keyboard and the mouse. Just keep trying...

    OS X Yosemite is Now Available on the Mac App Store

    The same thing hit me afterwards and I did just that. Still, no dice. The whole thing is still so fresh that there is not much information to research. That's why I'll try a bit later.

    OS X Yosemite is Now Available on the Mac App Store

    So far the updating hasn't been very pleasant or successful. As always, I made a bootable backup and booted from it to make sure it's OK (I ALWAYS do this) Then made the thumbdrive with Yosemite which booted OK. After a 18 minute installation the disk would boot, but there is no USB, so no...
