I've been following this (and the other) thread, and looks like you have instructions not mentioned in post #1.
I haven't actually started the install, as I'm having problems creating the USB installer. All my 8 and 16 GB USB drives are USB 3.0, and my USB 2.0's are small (up to 1GB).
My EX 485 system drive died a while back.
And I haven't revived it since.
Would also like to know if anyone has successfully installed El Capitan on this one.
Looking forward for some guides too.
Trying to get rid off MS OS from my machines as well. :)
I'd like to help with the testing. But the last time I built a hackintosh, was when the OS X was still Snow Leopard.
But I'm new to Clover, and not quite familiar with the GIT steps. So it's like a newbie once again, and the learning curve might be steep.
If starting from scratch:
OS X Lion (10.7) is still available I believe:
Or even Snow Leopard OS X 10.6 DVD...
Great job guys.
I'll continue watching this thread, and will try my install soon.
I've done my first hackintosh 5 yrs ago (SL then Lion), but looks like El Capitan on Skull Canyon is a totally new trail.
Thanks for leading the path.
Maybe you need something like this:
But looks like your fan used to have a molex connector?
The above only works with the regular pwm connector.
Maybe just get an old USB cord and splice the ground and positive wires. Take note that USB only supplies 5V, while...
Guys, at the moment, the supported procedure in simplified form:
- Update exisitng Snow Leopard 10.6.7 or 10.6.8
- Download latest MultiBeast and xMove
- purchase Lion from App Store, and install to current SL partition
- run MultiBeast to load Chimera (if you haven't done so)
The forum rules I think are clear.
This site is about purchased retail methods only.
If you don't have an existing Snow Leopard (which is the only way to get Lion at the moment), you can't be supported. The good news is, there are other sites that can support you on that.
I did something similar. But after I installed Lion to the new drive/partition, I did not go back to my SL, and just boot the Lion right away. Just copied MultiBeast from SL, and ran it from the Lion desktop. You can copy MB to a CD or a flash drive, so you save the extra step going back to...
How did you try to install Lion?
Via "installer" using xMove?
Not sure what you mean stock.
But you can install Lion to a new drive or new partition without messing up your Snow Leopard. It's a clean/fresh install.
But you have to use the installer created using xMove.
Once Lion is...
