    No sound through HDMI with Dell Optiplex 7010 on Sierra (voodoohda)

    I have just about everything working on a Dell Optiplex 7010 (even iMessage), but the audio is driving me nuts. There doesn't appear to be a "Newbie" Audio guide and the guides I've seen are confusing to me, I'm sure they're easily understood for an experienced user, but I'm finding them...

    After advice from trs96, I've decided to take the plunge.

    I didn't really have the inclination (OK, guts) or time to build my own system, but have finally come to the conclusion that I have little choice. The last machine I built was Celeron based, power supplies came with cases, all processors came with fans and water cooling was only used on...

    Pre-Built system

    Thank you Yoyellow and trs96 for your replies, very helpful. I decided to have a look at some systems advertised on ebay as Hackintoshes, I was ten miles from their location yesterday and phoned up with the intention of visiting, discussing my requirements and ordering a system. After a two...

    Pre-Built system

    Thank you for your reply, unfortunately, the item is out of stock in my country (UK). Is there any other machine that you're aware of ?,

    Pre-Built system

    I need a replacement for my 2 year old (16gb) mac mini which is really struggling to cope with the demands I put it under. The replacement machine doesn't have to be a small case, but I would like something that's quiet running. I don't have the time to put together a bundle of components and...

    Flickering Screen

    Hi, Sorry for being not being clear, I'm new to all of this and stumbling along ................... What I meant was that if I don't put any value in "ig-platform-id" (in clover configurator) but leave Inject Intel ticked the display is usable. If I put the values you supplied in...

    Flickering Screen

    I did boot verbose, the system "tried" to boot into graphics mode, the screen then either went black, hung and returned to the clover boot screen again (I don't think it restarted, but could have I suppose), or the screen looked like an untuned channel on old terrestial TV, "squiggly lines"...

    Flickering Screen

    I tired the following values in clover configurator (did I convert them correctly):- 00 00 12 19 - 0x19120000 :- system hung 01 00 02 19 - 0x19020001 :- (system went back to the boot logos) 01 00 12 19 - 0x19120001 :- (as above) 01 00 32 19 - 0x19320001 :- (as above) 02 00 16 19 - 0x19160002...

    Flickering Screen

    I changed the ig-platform-id in Clover Configurator to 0x12345678 as suggested on a page in the forum, this had no effect. Is there any way I can find the correct id to inject ? I've seen posts about the Intel 530 graphics chip, but little about the 520. I'm probably going to buy a machine...

    Flickering Screen

    I've searched the forums but can't find a fix to this problem. Booting up is fine, but after starting to login, the screen flickers, has horizontal white lines, then settles down to a cler display, but the screen can seem slow to refresh and if images are opened in a browser window or a video...

    Need to know if I can Hackintosh a HP Pavilion 15-ab254sa 15.6" Laptop

    I have most things working on the ab291sa, I assume it's the same machine, just a different colour case. I'm writing a guide, but until I've fixed everything (can boot, have sound, keyboard, trackpad working), don't feel it appropriate to post it.

    Help, Booting after installing Clover.

    After booting from a USB stick and installing to an external USB drive (want to preserve windows partition until all problems ironed out), I'm unable to boot FROM the USB drive. I've configured using Multibeast and Alternate Post-Installation method, none of these worked (UEFI mode) I can...
