    Internal HDD

    Thanks @lieder1987 Do you know if it's possible to setup the bootloaders etc into a virtual box? I haven't had to boot from an old internal HDD before (obviously). I've been googling around, but all I keep coming up with is installing onto externals and booting, not removing an internal and...

    Internal HDD

    Hi guys, Please let me know if this post should be elsewhere. I have an older macbook pro with a dead logic board. I would like to salvage the HDD and keep it as a backup of the data. Is it possible to just remove the drive and put it in an external housing and boot from it, or access it in...

    [GUIDE] Remove extra Clover BIOS boot entries & prevent further problems

    @pit512 did updating your bios reset defaults or did it keep all that you had changed?

    [GUIDE] Remove extra Clover BIOS boot entries & prevent further problems

    @pit512 is that the F20b driver for you? Any other issues with it that you've noticed? I'm still using the F6 bios on my Gigabyte z170 HD3

    Black Screen with MacPro 6,1 or iMac 15 or iMac 17 System Definition

    I'm sure someone more knowledgeable than me could have a loot at it. I don't think there is an issue with how new your Clover is, as pretty much every installation guide suggests to ensure you have the latest version. Not like your hardware is all that old or anything either.

    [GUIDE] Remove extra Clover BIOS boot entries & prevent further problems

    So it seems like the solution put forward by tbjem0013 works for those also running a windows partition, but is there a long-term/single solution for those of us just running macOS? I'm on Sierra and have about 30 entries lol. I think I read somewhere that any mac formatted HD will have the...

    Black Screen with MacPro 6,1 or iMac 15 or iMac 17 System Definition

    I Had something similar if the graphics settings were injecting nvidia=1 and not the nvd_drv=1 or whatever. It seemed to me that the onboard graphics were not registering and the screen would only come on one the gpu kicked in.

    Black Screen with MacPro 6,1 or iMac 15 or iMac 17 System Definition

    Is that power management as it relates to overclocking on your 'k' chipset or just generally? I'm only using the i5 6400 so not sure how relevant it is for my build.

    Black Screen with MacPro 6,1 or iMac 15 or iMac 17 System Definition

    Is there any advantage to running on 17,1 over 14,2? I just completed my build and all seems well, barring a few strange issues. I used 14,2 and specs are in my profile. I'm currently running 10.12.1 and while I haven't benchmarked the GTX 950, it's recognised in the System Overview and in...

    No Audio Devices - Realtek ALC AppleHDA [Guide]

    Well I am still fumbling through my first ever build so the only thing I can suggest is the link in my previous post and run through the checklists there, adding anything in that you haven't already done. I'm assuming you've selected the right injections in Multibeast etc? and used the...

    No Audio Devices - Realtek ALC AppleHDA [Guide]

    In case it helps others I fixed my audio by following steps 1.1 - 1.4 under the Unsupported/Non-working Realtek ALC AppleHDA section here. I already had the ALC887 and 100 Series options ticked in Multibeast. Once following these steps I was able to run the audio_cloverALC-120_v1.0d.command...

    Audio problem: EFI partition is not mounted

    I'm having the same problem. Installed 10.12 and updated to 10.12.1. Did Nvidia web drivers and they are working more or less, but no sound at this stage as no out or input devices found. According to the audio_cloverALC-120_v1.0d it's an issue with the EFI mounting. But not sure how to...

    No Audio Devices - Realtek ALC AppleHDA [Guide]

    @rheneas If you don't mind me asking, what options did you select in your Multibeast setup? I'm having some troubles with both my audio and monitor waking from sleep. I have the Gigabyte GA Z170 HD3 and Gigabyte GTX 950 Extreme. Any tips, advice or links would be greatly appreciated. I've...

    [SUCCESS] Perfect Sierra build Asus Z170 Premium

    Thanks @zlei. I'm looking at running a GA Z170 HD3 with i5 6400 and GTX 950 Extreme and just wanted to get the process right in my head first.

    [SUCCESS] Perfect Sierra build Asus Z170 Premium

    So did you have the card installed already when you ran installation? In your other guide you mentioned you pulled it out for initial installation. I'm guessing that no injections are required for the gtx 960 during the Graphical Config part of UniBeast? Thanks

    CustomacATX Budget & GPU Option

    Thanks guys. I'll probably end up with a Samsung 850 then, to save the hassles. No luck finding a used Kepler card as yet in Australia and US shipping isn't cost effective. The closest thing so far is an ex-demo Gigabyte Geforce gtx 750ti OC. I'm guessing the dead ports that @Fl0r!an...

    CustomacATX Budget & GPU Option

    Thanks a lot for the responses guys. I've been looking through the forums at m2's as boot drives and anything NVMe does seem to be an additional pain. As I'm not that competent with how it all works, I agree that using one for boot drive probably isn't for me. From what I've read there are...

    Thanks a lot trs96. Do the brand issues extend to RAM choices too then? Agin I notice it's all Crucial branded not Corsair or Kingston or anything.

    CustomacATX Budget & GPU Option

    Thank you Fl0r!an. I hadn't actually considered looking for a used/2nd hand part. I'll have a look about and see if I can find one. Most of the similar cards price and performance-wise seem to have moved to Maxwell from Kepler. I noticed on the recommendations page that the GPU's are all...

    CustomacATX Budget & GPU Option

    Hi guys, Both my current computers have died of old age. Looking to build a hackintosh based on the recommended specs for the CustoMacATX Budget. It will be used predominantly for Photoshop work. The only changes I'm hoping to make are the addition of an M.2 drive (PCIe/AHCI seems the way to...
