    Mac Pro (late 2013) replica

    That looks cool but I wouldn't trust it my self. The idea behind it looks cool but I prefer to lift a cover off instead of opening a door. It would not feel much like a Late 2013 Mac Pro replica in that case.

    Hackintosh Stable enough for Business use ?

    When I built my Hackintosh I thought it was going to be unstable here and there but I have not had a single kernal panic or any thing with my build. I edit and record videos on my Hackinosh to a point I feel that it is stable enough to spend the money on Final Cut Pro X from iMovie.

    Why is Apple making it so easy to run OS X on non apple machines?

    I watched a WWDC video (I can't remember the year) that Apple made the move to Intel CPUs simply because they got more performance per watt then the Power PC chip they used. As long as Apple sticks with Intel CPUs it will be as easy or might get easier to run Mac OS on Intel systems. The short...

    My first hackintosh... will it work?

    No. iGPUs are not made to game on. Like I already said you need a dedicated GPU. Intel HD Graphics are complete garbage.

    My first hackintosh... will it work?

    I agree about going with Gigabyte motherboard. I have seen others use Asus to but I can only say Gigabyte works the best. For the ram I would look for one that has a heatsink on them to help get the heat away from the chips. For the GPU it depends what you play to do on the build. If you are...

    Mount of outer dmg failed

    That worked to make a bootable USB drive! I had El Capitan Installed and its way to buggy for my hardware. :( The show hidden file command is wrong but I did find the correct one.

    Mount of outer dmg failed can I use my Mac Mini?

    I have tried a bunch of times with new downloads and different USB thumb drives but nothing lets me mount the El Capitan OS to it. Is there a way that I can use my Mac Mini to install the OS and stuff needed to run on my Hackintosh?

    Late 2014 Mac Mini Wifi to SSD question

    I was wondering if its possible to replace the Late 2014 Mac Mini's Wifi card with a Macbook Pro SSD. They look like the same interface is being used but I don't have a Macbook Pro I found this Transcend JetDrive 520 SSD that I want to know if I can use that instead of the Wifi slot.

    Mount of outer dmg failed

    I am trying this right now. I have never had this kind of problem trying to make a bootable USB of Mac OS till now. I only get my Mac OS from the Apple Store. I will let you know how that works. I've only downloaded it from the App store for the 2nd time after it failed the first few trys.
