I'm not sure this is an issue with my particular build or with mac OS but here we go.
I clean installed High Sierra on my build and the clean account worked fine with iCloud Drive. I decided to migrate my old data over using Migration Assistant and that seemed fine. But when I...
Thanks. Your right in that I should pick something that someone (or someones) is actively on top of. I'm definitely not an expert but I can follow directions (got me this far). So I want to make sure if something goes wrong in an update, someone can solve it ahead of me and I'll follow.
I am thinking of hacking a laptop to work on developing apps while on the go. It wouldn't be my primary computer (I have a desktop at home), but I need something while I travel including my daily commute to and from work (~50 minutes on the bus).
I like the Buyer's Guide for desktops...
Hey everyone, I have a quick question. I somehow thought that I could just upgrade my mavericks build to Yosemite through the App Store [pause for laugh], knowing my mistake I now have a drive that is sort of upgraded but doesn't work, a clone (Mavericks), and a time machine build (Mavericks)...
I was hoping the notes from the console would be useful but I can't find any leads as to what they could mean (again, I'm pretty new to all this).
The only good news is that I tried out my Ubuntu usb stick and I can confirm that both FireWire 800 and Firewire 400 drives will connect and I can...
I plugged the card into a PCI-E slot, booted up, tried 400 and 800 ports and nothing mounts but drives light up and feel like their disks are spinning.
In short, here are my (relevant?) specs:
CPU Intel Core i5-4670 3.4GHz Quad-Core
Motherboard Gigabyte GA-Z87-D3HP ATX LGA1150...
[Probably solved] Worked for weeks but now can only boot with -x PCIRootUID=1 (GA-Z87-D3HP)
So, after all the hours I wasted, I had a sneaking suspicion that for some reason it had something to do with the HDMI hookup to the monitor. Even though it worked for weeks, something made it so that it...

Confirmed, I just built it this morning and am working through the issues while also doing work.
Current problems: audio not working, messages not working, can't seem to reset properly.
I am looking into the forums and found some leads on those issues but have to finish my Xmas shopping first...
For anyone who sees this, I thought I would update it.
I decided to drop the i3 and get an i5-4570, realizing that an i3 was probably a poor choice for what I do.
Also, I got a good deal on a GA-z87-D3HP, though I am still wondering if it is a good choice for hacking since it was never included...
My parts arrive tomorrow and I will be using the 10.9 Mavericks instructions. Here is my build:

Gigabyte GA-Z87-D3HP ATX LGA1150
Corsair Vengeance LP 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1600
Western Digital Silicon Edge Blue 256GB 2.5" SSD (I also have a number of other 2.5" drives...
This will be my first build and I am undecided between the GA-Z87X-D3H and the GA-Z87X-UD3H motherboards.
The other components include:
Intel Core i3-4330 3.5GHz Dual-Core Processor
Corsair Carbide Series 500R Arctic White
CORSAIR TX Series CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V /...
