    Hi there!Thanks for answering my questions, I wish I could say that I have resolved all the issues, but sadly - no. This is what a wrote previously and was banned, but for another reason. Well, I had time and now kinda managed to resolve everything. Anyway let's go along historical...

    Hello, everyone! Hope you are having a good time. First of all I wanted to thank @rramon for keeping this thread alive and constantly posting/refining his EFI. I've been able to update my Catalina 10.15.7 with the last EFI from @b166ar that he made while being active(I did some minor changes...

    Hey, guys! I did it.Running latest Catalina 15.2 on an external SSD. Sidecar(amazingly good even via WIFI), iMessage, Hevc support in Videoproc for rx580 and all other functions are working or at least they seem to work, but... Yeah, there's mostly "but" involved when you talk about hackintosh...

    Well, since I am able to understand and even speak English, Russian and Chinese there are lots of sources and I can rely on. This is a funny one, if you read my previous post, then you can see that I currently have 10.14.2 and its working flawlessly. I shoot tons of commercial video and photo...

    @TurbineSeaplane Just ordered some noname 512gb ssd with a 32gb flash drive as a bonus for 52$ .Will try to install it during the weekend. One more question: are you using one Clover for all of the versions of the OS installed or switching boot drive in BIOS and each OS has its own boot loader?

    Yeah, I thought so. It's just loosing everything perfectly tuned and doing it again a bit pain in the neck. But in the other hand, I don't do this too often, once per year is bearable. By the way, I'm living in China and SSDs here are dirt cheap, so I thought maybe to get one external 256gb and...

    Hello, guys! Was checking a few videos about freshly released Catalina 10.15.2 and people mostly are having very good feedback, saying that it is stable enough to be the main one. I'm still on 10.14.2 since it was installed in the very first time. But changes in Catalina (such as sidecar...

    Love the name of it=) "The Great Kext Schism" - was good to read. Thanks for the links! Even though I have a bootable backup(exactly the way you have it), I still won't install any updates until at least 10.14.6 or even 10.15 (Guess clean install is preferable for a major update ). So I...

    Hello there! I just realized I might have been doing something wrong: In my very first attempt to install a hackintosh I have failed, installer wouldn't even start after choosing it in Clover.That time I just copied your EFI folder to bootable USB stick EFI partition. I fixed it by copying...

    Don't be, I have another macOS based mini-itx media center/server in mind for future, so this l9i cooler will definitely be a good choice for some i3 or i5. I guess that will try undervolting these days, but again summer in Shanghai is crazy hot, even with AC turned on ambiance temp normally...

    I believe there's some misunderstanding and @b166ar's "suspended" status has nothing to worry about. Meanwhile I'm glad I can answer at least one of your questions, since I was digging dualboot system topic for a long time before I made it. I'm not completely sure whether rear m.2 supports...

    I'm using Corsair LPX 3000 Mhz 2x16gb. But it seems to be that your RAM is even faster. Speaking of CPU: guess L9i isn't quite enough for i7 8700 (never done any kind of delidding and undervolting, kinda afraid to break something). Chinese new year holidays now and stores are closed, but ones...

    Yes, I went through similar builds, made some research on TDP etc... and choose SF450, the fan doesn't spin most of the time unless I play heavy games (tried only Far Cry 3,5 and Need For Speed Payback so far) or do some heavy editing in FCPX, and even if it does - only for a short time. When...

    Thanks! As I said it's Geeek A50 case which is I believe got its "inspiration" from Dan a4 SFX Case. They almost the same size like(Geeek slightly bigger) and Dan a4 uses all premium materials, while Geeek mostly made of acrylic (except the chassis, it's aluminum ). Speaking about price: Dan a4...

    So guys, you may congratulate me, it works like a champ now, I’ve resolved the previous issues and yeah, it’s crazy powerful. I’ve used Unibeast for making bootable USB this time (though I think previous methods were also working and were not causing the problem). Replaced the EFI folder using...

    I have tried other ports, but I don't think that my motherboard has USB 2.0 , I checked the user manual and all the ports listed on it have 3.1 with compatibility down to 2.0. Since we have the same one can you tell me which one you have used? Yes! The first thing I did was reading this guide...

    @inarush Hi, you were so kind to me answering my previous questions. Hope won't mind answering a couple more of them. Finally I did it, the machine is assembled and working, changed the PSU to the one you've recommended sf450. Had some problems with the video card, but already got it replaced...

    Wow!Thanks a lot for answering my noob questions! Now I see why is Z motherboard is good choice for me as well.Those two M.2 ssds is everything I need for the internal storage, so no cables for 2.5" ssd and better cable management as a result (planning to order custom cables for PSU). It's...

    Hello from Shanghai! I'm about to assemble my first hackintosh and your build is seems to be a great base for mine! Would you check my specs and answer a few questions, please? I've been reading the forum and all the guides for quite a while, but there's still something which I don't...
