    UniBeast: Install macOS High Sierra on Any Supported Intel-based PC

    I've installed 10.13.5 on an external USB drive clone, and then once everything is working okay, only then did I clone it back to my SATA internal drive. Reason I need to do it this way is if the upgrade fails, I want my computer to be unaffected so I can get back to work quickly and try again...

    [SOLVED] Hackintosh Sierra Hangs and reboots randomly with or without heavy load.

    My problem was with the BIOS. I updated to the latest version for my mobo, and that fixed all instability.

    Solving NVIDIA Driver Install & Loading Problems

    YAAAAAAHHHH!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. Re-Installed a GTX970 back on my Hack (my 6870 card is failing and couldn't drive 3 monitors anymore), and for several days now I couldn't make this GTX970 to work. I know it worked previously on an older OSX version. Did upgraded Clover, run the...

    Screwed standoffs to an old motherboard, lay it down on chassis, mark where the standoffs landed, and use JB-Weld to glue the standoffs to case (with mobo still attached), and placed weights on top of mobo until JB weld is cured. Unscrew old motherboard.

    Moving to SSD (2TB to 500GB) How?

    So I have a 2TB mechanical hard drive, about 1.3GB used. I'm thinking of getting a 500GB SSD, and using the 2TB old drive for my /Documents and home folder. Of course, I can't use SuperDuper to restore 2TB to 500GB. So what's my plan of action? Do I have to do a fresh install of OSX from...

    macOS 10.12.5 Update

    I had 10.11.6 and successfully upgraded direct to 10.12.5 using App Store upgrade link. The only caveat is I upgraded my Clover EFI to version 4097 first. (My previous Clover EFI of 3974 didn't work.) Everything works after the upgrade, even Siri and Messaging after the upgrade. ** minor...

    I bought mine used for $170 back in Nov 2016. It should be even cheaper by now. Something better? Maybe a 980.
