    All my EFI partitions have the same uid!!!

    I've just had the idea to check the uid of the EFI partition of 3 drives and (see title)... Now I understand why Clover Configurator can't open 2 of them at the same time, it's as it was the same drive for him. So, is this normal? Should I do something about it? I suppose there's a Terminal...

    [Solved] Apps think computer is different when switching from Chimera to Clover

    Hi! Hard to find a short title to be clear but here we are. ;) I'm sure many of us have met this issue, trying to replace a working Chimera with Clover: - When launching Apple Mail, it will ask for all your accounts passwords. - Chromium too thinks it's on a different computer and makes all your...

    [Solved] Clover: the miracle of Custom Entries revealed ;-)

    Hi everybody! Custom Entries are not only for renaming or hiding partitions, here's what you can achieve — After many searches, I found 2 solutions for my problem, but I'm quite sure there's a more elegant one… (look at the end of this post and tell me if it's possible, please! ;) ) EDIT: see...

    USB Clover won't boot with one of my HD attached

    The title says it all: I have to detach my most recent HD for Clover to launch from USB key, otherwise it doesn't even arrive at Clover's GUI. No issue when my SSD or two older HDs are connected! The only thing I can think of is that the HD has a few ZFS pools/partitions on it, but it doesn't...

    [Guide] Darkthing#2 - DELL Latitude E6320 - i7 2640M 2.8 GHz

    Ok, this is not the state-of-the-art build, but as there isn't any guide here for this laptop, I think it's a good idea to publicize mine. ;) Starting point A friend of mine gave me this laptop and I thought it would be a nice SOS machine in case Darkthing#1 would let me down... • Here are its...

    [Solved] "won't shutdown" 101?

    The forums are full of that issue, across the years and across the OSes — I'm facing it myself on 10.11 — with generally no answer at all or no convincing answer. Isn't there someone here who could write a diagnose method or advices on what to check? Seems like the Finder waits for something to...

    Standalone tonymacx86 Clover Builds

    Hi! I'm wondering if those Clover Builds are suitable only for the latest OS or can they be used, say, for 10.9, 10.10, 10.11?

    Audio noise fix trick

    Here's a little trick I've just found to avoid noise, if you connect one of your integrated outputs to an amplifier. It might only work in specific cases, but here it is anyway. My issue was that after 15 to 30s of inactivity a buzz would rise in my speakers (nothing on headphones) and stopped...

    Energysaver & other issues after testing Clover on USB key

    Hi! A few weeks ago I test-drived Clover as explained there and since then I can't access any more EnergySaver.prefPane (+ some issue with Shades — a third party dimming prefpane, that is now restored to full power after wake, and was not before). I still can set EnergySaver's prefs through...

    Possible confusion in the Guides...

    Hi! I humbly think there's an error in the 10.8 guide at the Post-Installation Using MultiBeast part, when saying download the latest MultiBeast: as this post from Tonymac says, it's rather that there's a MultiBeast version that matches an OS version! It might not be true with OS 10.9, but I...

    Edit fstab to speed-up /Users partition at boot

    It's easy to google and find the trick to hide some partition from mounting, using /private/etc/fstab (see this thread, for example: http://www.tonymacx86.com/general-help/60244-edit-fstab-not-mount-some-drives-boot.html) but the reverse might be very useful too: prioritize the mounting of a...

    10.9 on Z68: sleep or audio, not both!

    Hi! I'm the happy owner of a nearly one year old Z68XP-UD3 based machine (see my signature) with "dual" boot 10.6.8 and 10.8.x on the same disk. As far as I've arrived with my trials on Mavericks (on a second hard disk ;) ), I must chose between sleep and audio as it needs npci=0x3000 to have...

    Chimera internal procedure diagram for better knowledge?

    Hi all! Our knowledge of hackintoshes rely much on personal trials and deduction, it would be nice to have an explaination of what goes where and what for, for advanced users (and maybe it would also help noobs with a good technical knowledge, as I was, to understand better what they're doing...

    Hurray! DAE Error 743 is dead & gone! :-)

    THIS IS NOT A HACKINTOSH ISSUE! So you'd say "why posting this here?": because most people might think it is, as I did myself! :mrgreen: The (not so) happy owners of a Digidesign/Avid MBox2 audio interface have all become bald now, after being left in the dark by Avid for 3 or 4 years! But Avid...

    Hibernation anyone?

    Hi! My build has been working perfectly for a few months now, but I've discovered Deep Sleep (Hibernation) mode on my iMac and have tried to use it on my build, be it with a dedicated utility such as SafeSleepOnce (that works perfectly on my iMac) or via the Terminal (sudo pmset -a hibernatemode...

    Some common errors and their fix

    While installing my first build, I had a hard time finding information and fixes for some very common errors.:banghead: That gave me the idea to summarize some of them here, hoping it may be useful for beginners. :) From what I've read, the first two errors are possibly related to your PCI...

    DSDT.aml not automatically copied in /Extra?

    Hi! From what I read here and there, that should be the place for the DSDT.aml file, right? Multibeast with userDSDT checked and a .aml file from the database on the desktop is supposed to copy it there or not? In my case it doesn't. If I need further settings, I have to copy it there manually...

    iBoot stuck on Z68P-DS3+i3 2100+EVGA GeForce GT210 512Mb+10.6.7

    Hi! I want to install 10.6, so don't tell me to try Lion or ML instead... ;) This is my first build: the hardware part was quite easy but trying to start from an iBoot CD, after 3 lines I don't even get the red apple, just black screen! (the last line is "mounting: done", which disappears...

    ProTools LE 8.0.5 on ML!!!

    Everyday brings its share of surprises! I've just bumped into a thread at Avid Audio Forums (known as the Digi User Conference) with many people running their ProTools LE 8.0.5 on OS 10.8 with plugins and all! :shock: The problems are not software related, as it seems (PT runs well, I've already...
