    The PowerPC Hub's Power Mac G5 Hackintosh Build

    Thanks for the kind words! Unfortunately the PSU guide that I read up on before taking on the project is now missing its photos (damn you Photobucket!). But in reality it's a fairly simple process. Remove both PSUs from their casing, figure out a way to mount the new PSU securely (I used glue &...

    The PowerPC Hub's Power Mac G5 Hackintosh Build

    Yeah it's a bummer. I really can't wrap my head around it - even in a standard PC build where the card sits upside down the cable is still going to have to travel further than it would if the connector was on the back & will still look ugly as sin. No idea. And thank you! Thank you - I'm...

    The PowerPC Hub's Power Mac G5 Hackintosh Build

    Introduction The Power Mac G5 is my favourite case design of all time. The bold, clean lines and rock solid construction place it more in the realm of an art piece than a computer case. I’ve owned and used G5s and Mac Pros on a daily basis for a number of years, so ever since I ditched the...

    The PowerPC Hub's Power Hack G5 Build

    Yep, lots of progress! Since my last post I've bought in, modified & assembled a fully working G5 Hack. I originally intended on snapping photos & posting here alongside recording & uploading the videos to YouTube, but with my only decent camera working hard on the video side it was pretty...

    Clover Reboot Loop? (Booting in to Installer)

    (Possible) Solution: After days of failed attempts I've managed to get El Cap running. It's all a blur to be honest, but if I remember correctly I installed Clover with legacy support (through Unibeast), then restored my BIOS settings, ripped all of my other drives out, disabled VT-d, onboard...

    Clover Reboot Loop? (Booting in to Installer)

    Mobo: Gigabyte GA-H81M-DS2V CPU: Intel Core i5 4570S GPU: Gigabyte Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 I'm trying to get El Cap up & running on my G5 hack, but I've hit a brick wall. I CANNOT for the life of me get the installer booting. I get stuck at this point (see pic) EVERY. TIME. There's literally no...

    Cannot edit build signature

    Sorry the late reply. I could already edit the signature, but I can't remove it (if that makes sense). If I leave the "Edit Build Signature" blank it defaults to listing a load of i5 CPUs (Main Build: - i5 4690i5 4690i5 4590i5 44...). I'd like for that to be removed so I can go ahead & type my...

    Cannot edit build signature

    Could you do the same thing to me? I've got this funky looking "Main Build" in my sig that I can't get rid of. Cheers!

    The PowerPC Hub's Power Hack G5 Build

    Update 2: Power Mac G5 Disassembly & Final Plans Earlier this week I got around to disassembling my G5. It was a relatively easy job all things considered. A lot of people bang on about how much of a pain in the backside they are to gut, but aside from the top shelf/door locking mechanism it was...

    The PowerPC Hub's Power Hack G5 Build

    Update 1: Power Mac G5 Arrival & Current Plans The wheels are turning! The centre of attention arrived today, the Power Mac G5 itself. It's a Rev.A with dual 1.8GHz G5 processors, 4GB of RAM, the Nvidia GeForce FX5200 (64MB) and 2x 80GB Apple branded Seagate drives. So, all in all, a very nicely...
