    The New Beginner's Guide to USB Port Configuration

    I recently had a motherboard failure and switched from a GA-Z97X-UD3H-BK to a GA-Z97X-UD7-TH. I took the opportunity to change from Clover to OpenCore 0.6.8, created a new 15,1 system definition and upgraded to Big Sur. All the basics plus sleep, power, wifi, iMessage/iCloud all seem to be...

    Command key no longer works

    This is a strange one. I've been using a Windows USB keyboard and it has worked fine for about a year. The Windows key functions as the Apple or Command key. Recently that function simply stopped, although the key works fine when I boot Windows via Clover. I've tried the following with no...

    No Sound - Realtek ALC AppleHDA [Guide]

    I selected Internal Speakers and used the green port - result is no audio. I went back to the black port and second Line Out and I have audio again. The trouble is that it's intermittent - I believe it's related to sleep/wake, however sometimes audio works after waking. Did the logs and IOReg...

    No Sound - Realtek ALC AppleHDA [Guide]

    Description of audio problem Sound goes out intermittently after an upgrade from 10.11 to 10.12 - can’t seem to pin it to sleep/wake or other behaviour. Rebooting fixes the issue, however I’m hoping something seems obvious from the diagnostics below. OS X version/motherboard model/BIOS...

    Hardware (Marvell 88SE9230) vs. software RAID

    I'm looking at adding 2 x 3GB HDD (Seagate ST3000DM001) in a RAID 1 configuration and wondering if I would see much performance improvement from using a Marvell 88SE9230-based controller (like the Syba SI-PEX40057 or IO Crest equivalent) vs. Apple software RAID (on a GA-Z97X-UD3H-BK...

    Working 100% official Apple BCM94360CD with PCIe adapter from Mallaid/Taobao

    Ok, so we have conflicting info about the green/orange/red led on the back -- I was hoping to use that to determine whether the card was getting USB power for Bluetooth. The WiFi card (BCM94360CD) shows up under Network/Wifi in the System Report, however Bluetooth is absent from the USB device...

    Working 100% official Apple BCM94360CD with PCIe adapter from Mallaid/Taobao

    I have the exact same card and it worked perfectly on my Z77X-UD5H motherboard -- plugged in the PCIe to a 1x slot, attached the USB cable and it worked great. However, that mb died and I've replaced with a Z97X-UD3H-BK -- the WiFi portion is working, however the bluetooth will not work...

    ultrazone's guide for Z77X-UD5H + Mavericks + Clover UEFI mode

    Thanks for the info...I checked and that setting is not selected. I did try the power button and you can hear a relay go off and mb lights flicker for a second but it's like it doesn't stay on. The trouble seems to be with waking up entirely. I tried the sleep/wakeup cycle in Windows 8 and...
