    Hackintosh shuts down after 10 minutes or less abruptly without warning

    My system either refused to boot or randomly hangs. I have changed the PSU and the problems disappeared. The PSU lasted 6 years. Maybe consider changing the PSU to try?

    Mavericks 10.9.1 & Saffire Pro14 - Unstable Firewire Connection

    Mavericks 10.9.5 crashed on me last week and forced to reinstall again. Thanks goodness the installation to El Capitan went like butter. There wasn't any data loss. Now the firewire works natively on the motherboard though the PCI card (NEC chip) doesn't seem to work. It has been running...

    Mavericks 10.9.1 & Saffire Pro14 - Unstable Firewire Connection

    Now, both native motherboard and NEC PCI-X Firewire connection don't work. No idea what else to do. Repaired permissions, downgrade to a lower version of Saffire Control, etc, nothing works.

    Mavericks 10.9.1 & Saffire Pro14 - Unstable Firewire Connection

    It has become unstable after upgrading to 10.9.5. It seems that any upgrade is a gamble. I am still on a NEC PCI-E chip which works while the motherboard firewire don't work, which is strange. However, on Win8.1, it is totally stable.

    Mavericks 10.9.1 & Saffire Pro14 - Unstable Firewire Connection

    I took a chance and bought a NEC based PCI card with 2 firewire 1394a ports for about US$15 at a computer parts shop. Today is day 3 and everything works. Typically, it takes about 3 weeks or so before it breaks, so fingers crossed. Will update it if it fails.

    Mavericks 10.9.1 & Saffire Pro14 - Unstable Firewire Connection

    The FireWire is unstable again as of today. The problem seems to be triggered by iTunes. The connection was there before playing iTunes. Once iTunes plays a tune, the FireWire connection drops. any idea why?

    Mavericks 10.9.1 & Saffire Pro14 - Unstable Firewire Connection

    Hi, so far the native mobo firewire connector to my Prof14 works fine since I have uninstalled Paragon NTFS for Mac. There is far fewer incidents of firewire disconnection since. I know others have no problem with that driver but I have. I suppose that it is still too early to try so I monitor...

    Mavericks 10.9.1 & Saffire Pro14 - Unstable Firewire Connection

    Thanks for the info. i am using the FireWire headers on my motherboard Gigabyte GA-z87-ud5h. I bought this mobo because I wanted the native FireWire connections so that I don't have to work with PCI-e cards. I just uninstalled Paragon NTFS and it seems to be working, most of the time - so far.
