    Mac Pro sata wiring harness help?

    I used these in my second map pro build after I blew the 60+ bucks on the sas/sata adapter in my original one. Happy accident finding them as they seem to only be made for the 540 carbide air case but they almost exactly match the mounting tabs on the mac pro cable. Power and sata cables are...

    Continuity and Handoff Capable Apple Mini Cards + PCIe and mini-PCIe Adapters

    Just got this combo myself. Can't wait to try it. Rather than using the ugly plastic antennas I want to use the built in ones in my Mac Pro case. Will it still work?

    UniBeast: Install OS X Yosemite on Any Supported Intel-based PC

    Anybody having sound issues read the posts. Yosemite handles audio differently. You now have to set 'internal speakers' under preferences and manually add the sound icon to the menu bar. I ended up having to load the ALC892 kexts from Multibeast 6.1.0 to get sound on my GA-Z87MX-D3H...

    No sound in ALC892 (OS X Yosemite)

    Multibeast 6.1.0 Worked like a charm! So why did they change it without testing and will they fix it in the next update?

    Use Unibeast to install Mavericks on a real iMac (or any other Apple computer)

    We do this at work all the time. First we copy the dmg to an exfat formatted flash drive. Then we copy the dmg to the desktop of a functional OSX machine. Then we use Disk Utility to repartition the flash drive to HFS+ Then restore to create the bootable flash by using the dmg as target...

    Have You Updated to OS X Mavericks Yet?

    Yes! And it was the EASIEST yet! I made my unibeast flash in 10.7.5 Did a clean install to a new 500GB HDD, ran multibeast with user DSDT then used my time machine backup to restore my files and programs. I'm a little sad I have to repurchase ilife and iwork from the app store because it...
