    sourcing parts to build out a Intel NUC D34010WYKH - advice?

    Never got a response so I went ahead with buying this item. I am unable to get mavericks install on the unit however, it boots to the point where the gui should start, but then the system reboots. I verified that virtualization and XD are both turned off. Not sure what else to do at this...

    CustoMac Nano: Prebuilt Micro PC

    Article: CustoMac Nano: Prebuilt Micro PC I just bought one of the intel NUC D34010WYK1 kits. I bought a intel DW1520 mini pci-e wireless card with the BCM943224HMS broadcom chipset, and I'm going to try using a 20GB msata drive along with a OCZ Deneva 200GB 2.5" SSD. I'm currently working on...

    sourcing parts to build out a Intel NUC D34010WYKH - advice?

    Hi I'm in the process of buying components to build out my NUC. I am either going to try to build it out to use as a customac, or I'll be replacing my current HTPC with it (my powermac G4 hackintosh build pc listed in my signature) so I can turn it back into my hackintosh. will a Dell DW1520...

    Kiwi's 20" iMac i5

    Fantastic Job, I had hoped someone could make one of the newer non intel imacs live again. I just acquired a educational market Intel Imac model AA195 that works ok other than the LCD screen having lines thru it. It's a common defect for a lot of the early intel imacs and they made the logic...

    DoctorEvil 30564's Powermac G4 Graphite Hackintosh

    The only other change I made to it was I left the original drive installed but disconnected and installed a Western Digital Green 1.5 TB sata hard drive that I'm currently using. I wanted to be able to switch it back over to being a customac later on when I no longer need a HTPC. I have a bit...

    DoctorEvil 30564's Powermac G4 Graphite Hackintosh

    I may have to do a "action" shot showing it running my 42" LG LED TV in it's new home in my entertainment center. It's still a great conversation piece, as everyone always asks me about it when they see it.

    DoctorEvil 30564's Powermac G4 Graphite Hackintosh

    I just wanted to give an update on this mod. It is still going strong, however I swapped out the original hard drive and loaded Windows 7 Ultimate on it, and switched the GTS 250 video card over to a GT 610 as I needed a HDMI port so I could connect it to my TV in my living room. I currently...

    Haswell Mac Mini

    This is awesome, I figured someone would come up with a build that would fit in the mini case, but my bet was for one of the core duo or core 2 duo era mini cases. This is amazing, and looks as good as, if not better than the original stock case. Great Job :thumbup:

    Possible craigslist find

    If the seller will let you visually inspect the case before you buy and you can snag it for less than $100 with the PSU I would say go for it. It also wouldn't hurt to ask the seller if he still has the parts that he removed before he did his build, as he may have the parts you need to finish up...

    Kiwi's Next Project - iMac G5

    If you are unable to get the audio working on your NUC you might want to consider adding one of those OSX compatible USB Audio dongles into your build, I used one of those with my old Core 2 Duo Hackintosh as every time they did a new update for snow leopard it would always break my system...

    DoctorEvil 30564's Powermac G4 Graphite Hackintosh

    Thanks for the quick response for me MiniHack, I saw the update to this topic but I didn't have a chance to respond til now. the nylon threaded locking nuts are ideal for securing the standoffs., and minihack's template is spot on for the proper places to drill for adding the standoffs

    iMac G3 Test Bench / Show case

    what about using the intel NUC that Ersterhernd and MacTester57 used for their Imac G4 mods? with it being small enough to fit inside the G4 dome you would maximize your available space inside the Imac G3 case and you could then concentrate on making the I/O adapters so you could reuse the...

    Yosemite - Ivy Bridge (first mod)

    I can attest that the RTX is a decent performing alternative to a Dremel and that attachments sold for a Dremel work just fine with it. good luck with your mod, so far it looks like you are off to a nice start.

    Macbook Pro Logic board swap!

    as they both are compatible with the same model Early 2011/Late 2011 A1278 13" Unibody Macbook Pro they should be interchangeable. the only thing I would double check would be if they both use the exact same heatsink. Perhaps the seller for the i7 logicboard still has the heatsink? might want to...

    is there a way to permanently change the default language on a russian macbook to english?

    It seems to have worked, when I logged out the login screen has fully switched to english, and the few remaining bits that were still showing up in cyrillic had switched to english. I wonder though if this would work from the OSX installer, or if by doing this did it flip the necessary bit in...

    is there a way to permanently change the default language on a russian macbook to english?

    My roommate bought a used mid 2010 model russian macbook pro (with the keyboard showing Cyrillic characters in addition to the english ones. When we replaced the bad hard drive in it and tried to load it with a fresh copy of mountain lion it booted off the thumbdrive ok but displayed everything...
