I passed my old hackintosh on to my Dad (2500k, H61 mobo, HD5750) with the strict instructions to not do any major updates without asking me first. So of course the phone rings the other day - "I've broken my computer". Looking around it seems all I need is a GT710 gpu but that's going to have...
Hi there Amoretam. I followed the 2011 Mac Mini guide, but with a different board and case. I don't use wireless on this machine - I'm hardwired.
Anyone got any comments on sleep behaviour with the new DSDT's?
Still on 10.7.3 because I've not fancied mucking around to get the SSDT stuff sorted. However, I did update the BIOS to F8 and install the new DSDT to supposedly sort out the USB wake-from-sleep issues. It's made not a jot of difference - has anyone who's installed one of these new...
My Core i5 Hack has been running brilliantly for several months now with the HD3000 graphics, but one of the intended uses of my hack was a bit of gaming. I was pretty set on a Radeon 6850/70 but now that Apple are intending to move back to Nvidia I've been a bit tempted. What's...
I think as long as you go into a Hackintosh with your eyes open then that's what matters. Personally, the system I built for £500 is significantly more powerful than a Mac mini, is expandable, has an optical drive and even gave me the pleasure of letting me build it in the first place.
I'll try disconnecting the drive tonight and see if auto sleep works - thanks for that!
<edit> Nope, didn't make any difference
Is there anything that can be done about the forcible USB drive unmount when sleeping? It's become a bit annoying... :(
Which network driver did you choose? I've personally had best results with the Lynx driver, but ymmv
Depends what you mean by 'improved' graphics. If you're getting a lot of artefacts from the HD3000 then yes. My artefacts disappeared after the first few days and haven't returned. If...
Just to throw my tuppence in - I had a few artifacts when I first built the system, but they seem to have been showing up less and less for some reason - I've had none for 3 days now, and I've resumed from sleep and rebooted.
Glad you made the system sleep. I'm afraid that I've not touched discrete graphics on my Hack yet, and when I do I'll be going for one of the easy OOB cards like a 6870 so I've got nothing useful to add, apart from best of luck!
