    Yosemite 3 Monitor Setup Problem

    I tried a fresh install of OS X 10.10 which went fairly smoothly save for most of the USB 2.0 ports being rendered unusable and no audio for the 898 chipset. The hardware configuration is as follows: Intel Core i7 3930K Asus P9X79 Deluxe PNY GTX 670 (2x DVI, 1x HDMI, 1x DisplayPort)...

    Basically I have what was a great stable build for years. However, it has recently developed a problem where it will, upon resuming the screen (just the screen not the system) from sleep, it cannot launch any programs and will beachball. Then it will freeze up. Doing a hard reset results in the...

    No OS X System Backups Were Found

    Currently I am running Mavericks 10.9 and would like to update to 10.9.2 and when available 10.9.3. Before I attempt this I would like a full system backup so I tried Time Machine with no exclusions specified (don't even see options for exclusions) and a USB HDD of 1TB (I also tried a 500GB...

    Plist Doesn't Use npci=0x2000

    I finally got Mavericks OS X 10.9 bootable on my system. The only flag left necessary to boot is: npci=0x2000 I've edited the org.chameleon.Boot.plist file to include npci=0x2000 but for some reason I still have to manually enter it when booting so perhaps I haven't gotten the syntax...

    P9X79 Deluxe i7 3930K Safe Mode Only Please Help

    Basically the Mavericks install went fairly well. I used Time Machine to backup a Corsair 120GB SSD with OS X 10.8.3 then restored it to a OCZ Agility III 360GB SSD. Then used Unibeast 3.0.1 to instal OS X Mavericks. I then moved on to MultiBeast (I'll post the settings I used). Hardware is...

    RocketU 1022A USB 3.0 Mac Drivers and Install Question

    I bought an iView HF2-SU34 bay USB 3.0 / eSATA enclosure from Newegg for ~$89.99 after coupon code and a $20 rebate brings it down to ~$69.99. It also came with a free HighPoint RocketU 1022A Dual 5GB/s USB 3.0 card. Looking online at some of the RocketU 1022A documentation yields that it...

    Latest Java Update Bricks OS X 10.8.1 Install

    My Wife installed a Java update and found that the OS X install will no longer get past the Apple logo. I tried using the -x, -v, -f options but didn't see anything that looked like an error. I will post screenshots so that a more educated eye may look at them but its a bit of a problem to do...

    Have HD 6870 Would Like To Switch To GTX 670

    Just like the title says I would like to transition a working OS X Mountain Lion install from an HD 6870 to a new GTX 670. Unfortunately I'm not sure what to expect so I am asking for advice on the process. Is it as simple as swapping the video cards and then running MultiBeast again (repair...

    Lion 64-bit Kernel and Extentions: No, How to Fix?

    I'm guessing this is caused by some kext that is being used. Maybe the Voodoo audio? Not sure how to track this down. Will Mountain Lion install on such a system as is or is it best to try and fix this now?

    High-End Ivy Bridge Z77 Motherboards Will Have Intel Thunder

    Apparently, Intel Thunderbolt support will be present on high-end Z77 motherboards from the usual suspects (Gigabyte, Asus, MSI, eVGA and so on). I was just wondering how likely it would be to get this support in OS X Lion 10.7.3 on such a Thunderbolt capable motherboard? These motherboards...

    Move OS X Lion From 1TB HDD To SSD Using Time Machine?

    Not really sure how one would do this but I would like to restore a Time Machine backup of OS X Lion from the installed 1TB HDD to a 60GB or 128GB SSD. My guess is that the iBoot + MultiBeast method would be used to boot into Snow Leopard install then you would mount the USB HDD with the Time...

    How Safe is it to Buy Lion on a Hackintosh?

    I was just wondering if that is what everyone is doing. I have a Mac Book Pro I could use but I wasn't going to upgrade it to Lion. I guess I just wanted to know if Apple knows and or cares if you buy Lion on a Hackintosh?

    Most Mac Like Case I Have Seen So Far

    Like the title says, this is probably the most Mac like case I have come across so far (if you are in to that sort of thing) other then an actual Mac Pro case: ... -Case.html It comes in different colors but the brushed aluminum look is the best IMO.
