    << Solved >> Internal card reader suddenly stopped working

    https://www.axagon.eu/en/produkty/cri-s3 This is my internal SD card reader. It is connected to a USB3 internal connector on the motherboard. The other side of the cable has 2 connectors going into the reader. One is for the cards and the other cable is probably just for the USB port on the...

    << Solved >> Backup MacOS drive from Windows

    I used dd from Linux before I deleted it and kept only dualboot MacOS with Windows. Restore using dd from Linux worked perfectly. I have not yet tried to restore from the windows-made dd but I believe it would work. I am now logged in to Macos since it's my daily production OS so I will compare...

    << Solved >> Backup MacOS drive from Windows

    Thanks, but that is not the solution I am looking for. I want free command-line oneliner/script that would do the same as dd in MacOS does. The image file should be dd-compatible in case I decide to ditch windows or it crashes. I think I finally have it: I found dd for windows here...

    [Guide] How to hide unwanted volumes on Clover boot menu

    Holy crap, from what I'm reading here it looks like this bootloader is the worst configurable thing in the world. Clover sucks so deeply for it's shameful configuration options. Look above how people are struggling and never accomplishing this simple task of sorting/removing boot menu items...

    How to use ip camera for Facetime?

    It is easy to use USB webcam, even turn it into an IP cam. I need the opposite. Because webcameras are these days hopelessly sold out and getting one is impossible (Slovakia), I want to turn my Samsung S10 phone into one.

    Catalina 10.15.4 Supplemental Update Didn't Work - Please Help

    Update from 10.15.1 did not work, after reboot it is still 10.15.1. So I decided to boot "MacOS Install prebooter" or something like this, thinking that the update should run off a different partition prepared before reboot. The prebooter of course didn't do it, instead it completely messed up...

    MacMan's Build: ASUS TUF Z390-PRO GAMING - i9-9900K - Vega 64 - Updated for 10.14.6 and NVRAM Support

    Do I need a dedicated GPU if I'm not playing games or mining cryptocoins? What is dedicated GPU for in a Mac? Will the computer be faster? I am editing 4K video and RAW photos perfectly fine with integrated Intel UHD 630 GPU.

I guess i should have run clover_v2-4k_r4920-uefi-emunvr-ub-pkg-zip BEFORE installation. How...

    MacMan's Build: ASUS TUF Z390-PRO GAMING - i9-9900K - Vega 64 - Updated for 10.14.6 and NVRAM Support

    Dear @MacMan, All, before selling my MacBook I created the UniBeast stick. Now I noticed that I had to apply ACPI patch BEFORE booting from the stick, so I should have it done in a Mac environment, using PlistBuddy command. I noticed that the patch is a simple text file and PlistBuddy does...
