    Migrating to new SSD

    Hi all. I've been happily running a Hackintosh for about two years now, everything working perfectly. I'm planning to upgrade my M.2 SSD soon, so I've been wondering what would be an appropriate migration path. My idea is as follows: 1. install new SSD alongside old 2. partition it so there's...

    << Solved >> Can't seem to disable SIP even from recovery

    Hi there. I'd like to disable system integrity protection, so that I can use MacForge. I also use it on my non-Hackintosh Mac to use some plugins for the Finder. However, somehow I just can't seem to disable SIP, even from recovery mode. I can confirm that it can access my drive in recovery...

    Remove invalid entry in boot menu

    Hi all :) Having a weird issue which I'm hoping someone here can help me figure out. I built a computer according to this guide, and it's working perfectly fine, running OSX 10.13. However, a while back during an update that required a restart, my computer crashed. When I restarted, there was...

    Installed Clover but still get Windows Boot Loader

    Hi all, I recently followed pastrychef's excellent tutorial and got a working OSX system. However somehow I've been unable to get the bootloader installed properly. Before installing OSX, I installed Windows 10, and each time I start my computer and press F8 I only see this. I can't seem to...

    Thoughts on this MicroATX build?

    Hi all, I'm thinking of building a computer for gaming and for work. I might end up dual booting with Windows, but in any case I do need OSX for work, so my focus is on making sure it's compatible. I've gotten most things from the buyer's guide, some from user build topics around here. I really...

    How safe is it for me to update?

    Hi there! A while back, I followed this guide on a Hackintosh made according to the August 2013 Buyers Guide (Mini-ITX). I've got my Mac OS X 10.8 working properly, but now I'd like to upgrade to 10.9. I'm really curious what the general success rate is, and what I should be doing to prepare...

    Enabling Vt-x — is it possible?

    So I've got a successful setup now, using a Gigabyte GA-H77N-WIFI. It works fine. However, aside from OSX I still use a few Windows programs, so I use Parallels Desktop to use them. In order to get my Hackintosh working, I had to disable Intel Virtualization Technology (Vt-x) in the BIOS. Is...

    Passive cooling video card?

    Hello, I'm thinking of getting a video card for my Hack. Right now it's just running on Intel HD 4000, but the motherboard doesn't have a DVI-I output so I can't get full res on my monitor (2560x1440). So I'm looking for a video card, it doesn't have to be *that* good, but since I'm buying one...

    thinking of quitting, could use some advice

    Hi everyone. Could use some advice from someone who knows their stuff about building Hackintoshes. So, the thing is, I figured that if I'd just use the Buyers Guide, and follow the proper tutorial, I'd be able to get things up and running with a minimum of problems. But now that my system's up...

    Looking for a cheap gfx card to use higher resolution

    Hi there, I've built a hackintosh using the August buyer's guide. I'm using a cheap build with a Gigabyte GA-H77N-WIFI. But the thing is, it only supports up to 1920x1200. I don't really use this machine for playing games, but I would like to have support for 2560x1440. Does anyone know of a...

    OSX ML as per Buyers Guide; no boot, gfx

    Hi everyone! I've set up a ML install on a computer based on the Buyers Guide August (Mini-ITX, different case though). I'm using a Gigabyte GA-H77N-WIFI as motherboard, with Intel Core i3 3225. I followed this guide to the letter. In fact, the install went just fine, without a problem, didn't...

    Multibeast doesn't seem to use my DSDT file

    Hello, I'm currently setting up my first Hackintosh. Got through the install just fine, then tried Multibeast. But I don't think it's using my DSDT file (DSDT-GA-H77N-WIFI-F2.aml, downloaded from this website). I put it as DSDT.aml in my user desktop directory but there's no mention of it in the...

    Advice for a TV card/EyeTV?

    Hi everyone, I'm a long-time Mac user (since the OS8 days) and I'd like to try building a budget Hackintosh for home/non-pro things (I use an 11" Air for my work). So I looked up the Buyer's Guide and I think the Mini-ITX build might be for me. There's one thing that I'd like to have in...
