    Utter, thank you so much for your help. It was a RAM issue. It was a fundamental issue, and I figured it out when I went to try and install Sierra.

    I appreciate the feedback and gave that a try. Same result unfortunatley. I had the SAT0 to SATA patch because I read on a couple of posts that this was for Skylake Chips like mine. So I went back to the drawing board. I started a fresh copy of Unibeast, and I was able to locate a copy of...

    Project Day 7: Once I was sure that everything was running, and there were no issues, I began to re-route some of the cables in an attempt to improve cable management.

    Quicksilver G4 Case Mod + Budget Hackintosh

    Project Day 6: Today is assembly day. However this become a good news bad news situation pretty quickly. I was able to mount the MoBo to the risers pretty easily, and it slid right into the I/O shield! I was not able to get a screw into every hole, as it didn't line up quite perfectly, which...

    Adapting the front speaker of G4 cases, esp the Quicksilver

    You can defintely wire it to different things. Stereo Plug If you wired the silver plug from the speaker to the red cable on the plug, and the silver/black on speaker to silver on plug, you could plug it in and get some mono sound.

    Project Day 2: So there were a few days between the first part of the deconstruction and the second, and part of that was because I wanted to make sure I had all the tools that I needed. I knew I wanted to do an All-In-One cooling option, and I knew I wanted the case to be a positive pressure...
