    macOS 10.15 Catalina is Now Available on the Mac App Store

    Works great on my Z77x chip-set boards using the upgrade method from within the Mojave OS (with supported OOB comptible video cards i.e. GTX780/RX470). Existing Clover 4934 boots installer, finds pre-loader partitions all by itself, and runs through a couple reboots along the way. result at...

    What was your primary reason for building a hackintosh?

    I've owned four real Apple computers, all had one or more hardware failures in the first few months. I realized that Apple was in pursuit of form over function, so finally I just decided to build my own. I have run the same setup for 5 years now with zero failures, and zero problems.

    macOS 10.12.3 Update

    Smooth like butter on a GA-Z77X-UDH5. Even sound stayed working.

    macOS 10.12.1 Update

    Updated from App Store. 1 reboot, and wham back in business. Amazingly, did not have to re-doo the audio. I think this is the first update ever (since 10.6.3) that did not kill my audio. If this is what the future holds, I'll stay on this hardware combo till it dies.

    Direct Update to macOS Sierra using Clover

    Nope, you need a newer version of Clover than the one that you used a while ago with ElCap. So upgrade Clover to a version newer than 3600 before you begin.

    Direct Update to macOS Sierra using Clover

    Worked like a charm for me. Only had to re-run the 1.20 audio script. note: my system is on clover 3650, my bios is iMac13,2, and my video card is natively supported in the OS.

    Cant load Clover bootloader from HDD

    In your MB BIOS you might want to double check that the drive is in your device boot list, and that your boot method is set to UEFI.

    Apple Releases macOS Sierra 'Golden Master' GM Candidate to Beta Testers

    It can be pretty painless if you already have an updated version of clover as your existing boot loader and a natively supported video card.

    using MacOS feedback assistant crashes OS

    I open feedback, begin to create a message (or not, makes no difference), and 2-3 seconds later "poof", hard crash. Does anyone know if there is some dependency on having real mac hardware to use this app? Everything else in the OS I've used is stable, including many 3rd party apps.

    Other then having to re-run the audio script, smooth and easy update. My front panel audio now detects and works properly (was M.I.A. in beta 1-6).

    macOS Sierra Public Beta 3 is Now Available

    I did somehow. Downloaded on a 13.2, installed on the same (using the 13.2 in the plist on the usb drive as well). Maybe I found a loophole unknowingly?

    macOS Sierra Public Beta 3 is Now Available

    Probably a not yet mature combination of beta and vid driver. If you remove the vid driver does it still crash? Your processor/mobo hardware would match a 13.2 profile btw, not 14.2.
