    Best LAN Copy Method between Hackintoshes?

    Would like to transfer some apps and docs from one Hackintosh ("Mini-ITX 1" below) to another ("Mini-ITX 2" below). The computers are connected via a fast Ethernet switch (both on LAN ports). Mini-ITX 1 is running High Sierra under the HFS+ file system, and Mini-ITX 2 is running Monterey under...

    Config.plist Items with Boolean Values = NO Not Needed?

    Experimenting with my working config.list on the computer at left, I found that all line items that are Boolean with Value = NO could be deleted with no effect on booting. Can't recommend doing that until everything is working, of course, but it did reduce the storage footprint of my EFI folder...

    First Aid on Device Partition Fails (?)

    Running Disk Utility First Aid on either of two SSD storage devices (in the same Skylake computer) returns a "partition" failure message. But First Aid run on the containers and volumes in those devices returns normal happy results. The disks were recently updated from Big Sur to Monterey 12.6...

    << Solved >> "Installer Is Damaged" - Twice?

    Downloaded Monterey installer (from same source, "Mr. Macintosh") twice. Both times I created a Kingston 16 GB USB 2.0 USB flash drive installer. It looks good on Disk Utility both before and after the "create media installer" routine in Terminal. But both times the attached message shows up at...

    << Solved >> "Create Install"-made USB Flash Drive Will Not Boot

    That is, it boots fine on my "Mini-ITX 3" Coffeelake computer, but not on my "Mini-ITX 1" Haswell computer. If it is the only "bootable" disk present on Mini-ITX 1, I get the text message to "insert a proper boot device and press any key to reboot." No problem making the "Install macS High...

    Single-slot Entry Graphics Card - AMD Radeon RX6400?

    Checking out low-profile single-slot AMD graphics cards, I discovered the AMD Radeon RX6400, and wonder if it is compatible with macOS (and if so, with which versions of the Mac OS).

    << Solved >> Spotlight Trouble on Haswell in High Sierra

    Yesterday I replaced my two Samsung 840 EVO 250 GB SSDs in my "Mini-ITX 1" computer (below) with two Sandisk 1 TB SATA III SSDs. Since then, Spotlight returns incorrect filenames. For instance, I typed Heaven in the Spotlight window, and it returned a letter that I had written in 2015. Also, the...

    Interest Geekbench Benchmarks

    Compared GB 5.4 0 results on computer at left running Big Sur on APFS with GB 5.4.4 on same computer running Mojave on HFS+. Main thing I notice is that results on Mojave/HFS+ are all slightly better than on Big Sur/APFS. At least, no performance was lost downgrading to Mojave from Big Sur. I...

    << Solved >> Strange Terminal Result

    "What we have here is a failure to communicate..." On two of my three computers, inputting the Terminal command in the screenshot below, returns a listing of kexts with comments. But on the computer at left, running Mojave 10.14.6 and using the HFS+ file system (same as the other two running...

    << Solved >> EXACT Copy of AppleHDA.kext Needed... How?

    My High Sierra computer's copy of AppleHDA.kext (v 281.52) has an "unknown" signature. My Mojave computer's copy of that file is version 282.54 and has a good signature. But if I copy it to the desktop, its permissions change from the original System/Wheel/Everyone to Me/Staff/Everyone, and I...

    << Solved >> OC 0.8.0 Question

    Looked at possibly updating my O.C. 0.7.9 to 0.8.0. A little research led to questions. Apparently the update changes its script language from Python 2.x to 3.x. MacOS 10.14.6 Mojave includes Python 2.7. What would be the effect on user operation if the EFI boot loader was updated to 0.8.0...

    << Solved >> BOOTx64.efi is a TextEdit document?

    On my High Sierra computers, BOOTx64.efi Get Info states it is to be opened with Mac File Opener.app. But on my Mojave computer running 10.14.6, the "preview" shows it is a TextEdit document and Get Info says it is to be opened with TextEdit. And indeed it does open. Problem is that OpenCore...

    Advertisements Sometimes Block Text

    Have noticed recently that although most ads are "behind" the desired post text on this forum, in some cases they suddenly appear (during scrolling) in front. This also causes the text to jump vertical position, and is annoying when reading in the middle of a post. Is this unique to Mojave, i.e...

    << Solved >> OpenCore Disk Icon Missing on APFS Storage Device

    Please note that this thread refers to my "Mini-ITX 3" computer listed below, not the computer at left. Thought the problem was EFI Mounter v3.1, but looks more like anOpenCore 0.7.8 EFI configuration issue (see following posts).

    No Audio Devices after Updating BIOS

    Well, my High Sierra Coffeelake computer ("Mini-ITX 3" below) was working fine, with sound, using Gigabyte's BIOS version F14a. But I read that they really recommend upgrading to their latest, F14 due to some "vulnerabilities." So I used QuickFlash to do that, which worked fine (I thought)...

    Help! I want to access my computer's DSDT using OpenCore 0.7.8. The instructions look like this: The problem is that I don't understand the instructions; also, this is an old instruction and OpenCore may have changed the method. My questions are: 1.
