    Solved > 10.14.4 System has posted in safe mode.

    Thank you! Had the same issue and the AppleRTC patch worked for me.

    Please help - does printf work??

    Problem is, this isn't my build. It's a build I built for a friend. I listed the build components in the OP. Do I still need to list them in my profile? The build in my profile IS my current build. Cheers :)

    Please help - does printf work??

    Hi all, I am resorting to opening this thread because I have tried searching this forum and troubleshooting this intermittent problem and none of them have worked. The hack boots up fine most of the time and 100% of the time after rebooting after this error. It is experienced maybe 10% of...

    i7-9700K no hyper-threading?

    That's what I figured. Thanks!

    i7-9700K no hyper-threading?

    So I'm set to build another hack soon based on the Z370 chipset and the i7-9700K. The 8700K is sold out currently here in South Africa. We went with the Asus Maximus X Hero for this build and it just requires a BIOS update for the 9th gen chips. The 9700K gives up hyper-threading, though. Is...

    Look for a Website Forum Dedicated to Modding (Aging) Computers

    I don't know about a global community, but my country's local PC forum is a wealth of information filled with many knowledgeable people. www.carbonite.co.za I live in South Africa and out here we make do with what we have access to so there are a lot of mavericks doing weird and wonderful...

    Z390 and i7-8700K - any successful builds?

    I would think that if you have configured certain kexts, DSDT, SSDT, edits etc for one specific build there could be conflicts that prevent boot if you attempt to boot of another machine with different chipsets? But yeah, macOS is both hardware specific and agnostic. Cheers :)

    Z390 and i7-8700K - any successful builds?

    Thanks @Robotronic. I can imagine that an existing installation wouldn't work. But that still isn't a good sign. I think we might just have to stick with a Z370 board. Cheers :)

    M.2 compatibility with x58

    It might be worth getting a standard PCIe NVMe drive. There are plenty out there even though M.2 is the standard. Check eBay or Amazon. Cheers :)

    Z390 and i7-8700K - any successful builds?

    Hi all, A friend of mine wants me to build him a new Hack. The only problem is that we need to stick with Gigabyte AORUS motherboards (for Thunderbolt support) and here in South Africa the Z370 boards are now few and far between. We originally chose the Gaming 7 because it offers enough M.2...

    Asus Maximus IV Extreme Z (Z68) and RX 480 8GB

    I have a couple of DP to DVI adapters but they never seem to work. I will give it a try but I ended up just installing a Sierra VM in VMWare Player as a test bed and somewhere to create installers. Would be nice to have a dedicated hack but I work on and need Windows on this machine anyway so...

    [SUCCESS] Biostar H61MLB + i3-2120 + Asus GT610 1GB

    This was one of the easiest builds I've ever done. Almost everything works OOB. Currently running 10.11 (first release). I know it's an old build but I decided to transform my HTPC into a Hack so I gave it a shot this afternoon. Took me about two hours. SPECS Biostar H61MLB i3-2120 3.3GHz...

    Asus Maximus IV Extreme Z (Z68) and RX 480 8GB

    No adapters. Straight from HDMI to my monitor.

    Asus Maximus IV Extreme Z (Z68) and RX 480 8GB

    Just wanted to note that the installer will boot all the way in both vanilla and verbose mode. The boot process is fine and I can see all the relevant hardware passes. It's just when the GPU initiates that I get nothing. Very bizarre. Cheers :)

    Asus Maximus IV Extreme Z (Z68) and RX 480 8GB

    I've tried DVI and HDMI. I have a triple display setup. I've tried each single display and multiple. All three displays register signal but the screen is black. They don't turn off and go into power saving mode. I've tried installing from different media along with all the other kexts...
