    Clover doesn’t see/won’t boot my customac anymore.

    Had been working fine for over two years. Last night I powered it up, and clover no longer saw/booted my MAC OS. It only showed me the recovery partition (with the big Red Cross on it). I tried booting that - and it comes up ok. But the only options it gives me are to reinstall MAC OS...

    Copy MAC encryped disk files to another MAC?

    My hackintosh stopped working today after running solid for a couple of years. Just won't boot. At this point I just want to copy files over to some other safe place. But the drive is MAC OS encrypted. I have the encryption key. Can I just mount the drive in a USB SATA enclosure and copy...

    Need help. Intermittent error allocating...

    Couldn't allocate runtime area. Boot failed. The odd thing is that it will eventually work ok after I restart about 2x. No issues once it's up and running. What would cause that - and what can I do about it. It's a pain to have to keep recycling until I get a good boot. Any help is...

    El Capitan 10.11.4 - panic at "starting darwin x86_64"

    I couldn't resolve my installation problem with updating in place from Yosemite to El Capitan 10.11.4. So I went with a USB install instead - which seemed to work. But I can't boot from the OSX instance on my ssd. I get a panic just after it says, "starting darwin x64" Not sure what...

    El Capitan install won't resume after restart

    I have a working Yosemite hackentosh that I just tried updating in place via App Store update. Download finished and I ran the install. I agree to terms, press continue etc. says it'll reboot automatically. But when it restarts, the install doesn't resume at all. I've tried 3x now...

    NAS device on network - poor performance from my home grown Mac.

    I've basically got a 32 gig 8 core beast of a machine running Yosemite 10.10 but I get something like 2 and 4 megabytes per second write/read going up against a NAS device that's Ethernet connected to a 1 gigabit port on my network router. By contrast, my wife's windows machine gets closer to...

    ga-z97x-ud7-th post install questions

    First, this was the smoothest build process ever. Everything installed on first attempt and I could boot successfully after establishing my settings via Multi-Beast. No hunting/pecking for kexts. My questions... Do I need to worry about setting P-states and C-States bootflags? If yes, to...

    Sleep/wake for HP ENVY Haswell...Mavericks.

    I've read through a few of the threads on how to get sleep/wake to work but I'm afraid to experiment at this point because everything else is working well and I don't want to F it up. Anyway, my laptop won't come back to life if I close the lid - or if I let it go to sleep. Not sure if I need...

    Dumb question about Apple updates

    All, So now that I've got stuff working reasonably well on my machine, what's the "best practice" for applying future OSX updates (both point releases and major releases? Won't/can't some updates utterly mess up my kext setup; replace Apple Kexts that I've had to remove; other mayhem...

    Audio only works with -f boot flag.

    Not something I noticed right away. But I've tested it enough to say it's definitive. I only get audio when I use the -f bootflag. I tried removing the cache itself then rebuilding it (plus all permissions) using Kext wizard. Still only works with -f. I guess it's not a show stopper...

    No Mouse/Keyboard @ Initial Welcome screen

    All, I've got my HP ENVY 17-J037CL working up until the initial Welcome screen after installation. Although my trackpad and keyboard worked during the USB installation, it doesn't appear that the VoodooPS2Controller driver got copied over. Since there's no keyboard and mouse, I can't do...

    Help - Mavericks install HP Envy 17-J037CL

    I followed the guide on insanelymac...Chameleon boots ok on the laptop and I get a choice of OSX base System, Windows, and Recovery. I choose OSX base. The apple logo shows up briefly, and then the whole thing just reboots from scratch again. I tried the -x switch but same thing happens...
