    I made a huge mistake

    I apologize if this is not the appropriate place to post this. Please advise me if this should go somewhere else. It just seems that the people who post here might be able to help me. I was on my legit iMac Mojave system — trying to create bootable Clover USB drive for my *hackintosh* system —...

    GTX 960 FTW vs. SC

    Last year, I purchased what I believed to be a tonymacx86 recommended video card. The Amazon link had several products gathered under one page heading, and I somehow picked the wrong card. :O recommended card—EVGA GeForce GTX 960 SC (Super Clocked) ..the card I bought—EVGA GeForce GTX 960 FTW...

    Clover SSDT Install Option

    I currently have a build running ML, and I'm preparing to install Yosemite on a separate drive using Clover. I have my installer thumb just about ready, but I have a few questions before pulling the trigger. Yosemite Clover Install Guide says (Step 26) DSDT and SSDT patches are optional. I have...

    Function keys not working. What did I do wrong?

    My functions keys aren't working properly. The keys I have assigned to Mission Control work, but when I hold down the fn key, I just get Dashboard, and Dock items randomly popping up and Menu Bar items randomly highlighting in Blue. With fn held down, I have no control over brightness or volume...

    Question Trim Support on SSD

    This may seem like an obvious question, but I can't seem to find an answer. I have an SSD divided into two equal partitions. (One has Lion, other Mountain Lion). When enabling Trim (using Trim Enabler) I'm guessing that I need to enable it twice... once from each partition... but I'm not sure...

    Migrating from an i5 to an i7

    I had Mountain Lion installed and working fine on a 4530 i5, but I was expecting more from the system (in terms of audio performance) than it could deliver. So, I pulled the SSD drive out and put it in a 4530 i7 2670QM. And, as I expected, upon startup I got a kernel panic. I'm probably going...

    Disabling AMD Radeon HD 6490M in BIOS

    I'm looking at an hp 4530s LJ521UT. It does have the onboard Intel 3000 HD Graphics, but also has an AMD Radeon HD 6490. Some time ago, one user had pointed to a page where another user mentioned disabling 6490M in in the BIOS, but that thread was not specifically about the 4530s, and it also...

    'Find My Mac' anybody get this working?

    I'm very happy with the way my 4530s is running. With the exception Bluetooth and Find My Mac (FMM), most everything else seems to be functioning smoothly I've been reading a bit about FMM... Hacked PCs have no Recovery Partition and, without it, FMM doesn't work. On a actual Mac, I guess the...

    Very hot adapter and other issues

    Okay, so I got all my components and went ahead and installed my SSD drive (not an easy task) and followed the MLion 5.1b1 Installation, by RehabMan. On the plus side, I can boot off the MLion drive without a problem. My FireWire ExpressCard (running my Audio Interface) works great. The whole...

    What happens to a RAID volume when...?

    My desktop system is running Lion but, in order to use certain software that doesn't run under Lion, I'm thinking about installing a Snow Leopard partition. I have a mirrored RAID volume that was created using SoftRaid (running Lion) and I'm wondering what happens to it when (if?) I boot up in...

    How do I make a bootable Snow Leopard flash drive?

    I'm running Lion on my main drive, but I have some apps that will only run on Snow Leopard. I really don't need a huge partition, I'd just like to have a bootable Snow Leopard flash drive. It may be that it's done the same way as if you were doing it on a HDD, but a friend told me that it was...

    Need help with FireWire ExpressCard

    I've narrowed in on two (or three) Syba FireWire ExpressCards to put in my 4530 but am uncertain as to which one will fit. The encasing (for lack of proper word), that is, the part that flushes with the outside of the laptop, seems taller on one than on the other. On one, the FireWire ports are...

    Has anybody had any experience with the Atheros AR9002UB-1NGB?

    Okay, I am relatively certain that the WiFi card in the HP 4530s (A7K07UT) I'm planning on buying is not the Atheros AR9285 but instead the Atheros AR9002UB-1NGB. It's one of Atheros' WiFi/Bluetooth combo cards. I've searched here and the web for hackintosh-related info on this specific card...

    Must I supply power to FireWire card if units plugged into it already have power?

    I'm currently in the hunt for a FireWire Card so I'll be able to do pro-audio on a HP 4530s (A7K07UT) I've read on this site that you need to add a power supply, but I'll be using it with an audio interface (TC Electronics Impact Twin) and a hard drive (WD MyBook) that both already have their...

    Corsair SSD question...

    I have a Corsair 480GB SSD (CSSD-F480GBGT-BK) that I was going to use as a sample/virtual instrument library on my Mac Pro, but, as big as it is, it just isn't big enough (I have over 750GB of data). So I'm thinking of using this as my boot drive in a HP 4530s i5 (A7K07UT) I've read elsewhere...

    Is this the Atheros 9285?

    ​I've got a pretty simple question to which I think I know the answer, but better safe than sorry. I'm looking at purchasing the HP 4530 (A7K07UT) … At: http://www.tonymacx86.com/hp-probook-4530s/38363-faq-os-x-4530s.html … it says: "For full functionality you should have an Atheros 9285."...
