    CPU Load 100% on NVISEN Y-MU01 - audio issue?

    As described here I have a NVISEN Y-MU01 with a i7-8565U CPU. Should be a ALC269 audio unit. The setup is running fine with Mojave 10.14.6 (USB, BT, WLAN, audio front port work), but there is one issue: one CPU core is always at 100% system load (kernel_task) and the fan is spinning...

    No luck with i5-7600T Kaby Lake, HD630, Mojave 10.14.6

    Hi there, I am building my first hackintosh with an Intel iGPU and it's unexpectedly hard. Hardware of choice is a Gigabyte Z270N-Wifi, an Intel i-7600T (iGPU: HD 630) with Mac OS 10.14.6. This setup worked fine with a Radeon 560, but with the iGPU I get stuck during boot from the Macintosh HD...

    Booting 10.14.3 SU from USB2 stick freezes during boot

    Hi, I have a Gigabyte Z270N-Wifi, a Intel 7600T and a MSI 560 graphics card. I am using a USB2 stick to install 10.14.3 (probably with the Supplemental Update, since I downloaded Apple's installer after it was released) but the boot process freezes at some point. I never get to the installer...

    MacPro 2009 (Laser Hive parts) needs more red

    I always liked the hard drive disc holders on those Mac Pro towers so when I started to use three 3.5" drives and two 2.5" ones I started searching for Mac Pro towers on EBay. The mTX Mac Pro kit from The Laser Hive and a MSI B250M Gaming Pro should do it. But what would my accent color be...

    PowerMac G4 Quicksilver with Laser Hive parts

    In 2018 I spent a lot of time case modding old Apple PowerMac cases, specifically the G3 blue&white, a G4 Sawtooth and two G4 Quicksilvers. Here I am presenting the G4 Quicksilver. The hackintosh parts are not really worth going over, so here are a few points on the case mod. I try to illustrate...

    Native Broadcom card doesnt work anymore with M2 SSD?

    Does this sound familiar to anyone? So here I have my main work horse (7700K, Gigabyte H270N-Wifi, Samsung 970 EVO M2 SSD, GTX 1070). Up until recently it was all working with a Samsung 850 EVO S-ATA SSD and macOS 10.13.6. I am using a native WLAN solution, specifically a BCM94360CS2 card in an...

    What would I do different with a Radeon GPU setup?

    Hi there, I started building hackintoshes in 2012, but I have never used a Radeon GPU. This time however I have a i5-3550, a ASUS P8Z77-M and a PowerColor Radeon 6870 (2x DVI, HDMI, 2x mDP). Here it says it should be compatible out of the box? But what Clover settings do I need (for 10.13.6...

    Adapting the front speaker of G4 cases, esp the Quicksilver

    So here I built a Skylake-based hackintosh into a 2001 Apple PowerMac G4 "Quicksilver" (info thread soon, little teaser pic attached). Now, what about the front speaker? Just one piece, but hey, it's Harman/Kardon if I remember correctly. The cable seems to have two wires. I don't find this...

    WhateverGreen Smooths Out the Nvidia Drivers Stuttering

    In the feature description for WhateverGreen it says Does that fix the stutter that I and lot of other users experience? Currently I am on 10.13.3 with a Gigabyte 1070 and using an old version of the NVidia Web Driver was the only way for me. With anything newer YouTube videos would stutter...

    How would one use a BCM94322HM8L card?

    Hi there, I am constantly looking for Broadcom WLAN cards for hackintosh builds. Recently a BCM94322HM8L popped up on EBay. Recently I used two M2 Broadcom cards in two hackintoshes with a GA-H270N-Wifi. But the BCM94322HM8L is a different beast? This is a PCI card? Do you put it directly into...

    NVidia web driver check box survives restart, but not a shutdown

    Hi there, I just did a clean install of High Sierra on my existing hack, but somehow in System Preferences > NVidia the check box to enable the NVidia web drivers does only survive a restart, not a shutdown. In the latter case it reverts to the default macOS drivers (i.e. none). I installed...

    Modding a 2003 Cinema Display 23"

    I am currently feeling like modding a G4 tower (after two G5's) and one offering on EBay comes with a 23" Apple Cinema Display from 2003. Now I remember those displays and while those where fine at the time, I don't think today they hold up. Now on ifixit they have guides for that thing and at...

    Is an M2 Samsung 860 EVO hackintosh compatible?

    Yeah, question is right in the title. My local stores are full of M2 Samsung 860 EVO's, yet the current part recommendations on the tonymac main page don't mention them. The list carries the 840 SATA's, 850 SATA's, 960 EVO M2's ... but not those? The M2 860 EVO's are NVAND, so I guess macOS High...

    Can I use my Unibeast stick to install macOS on Apple hardware?

    Yeah, the question is pretty much in the title. Let's say I have a USB stick lying around, prepared by Unibeast, that I used to install macOS Sierra or High Sierra on a hackintosh. Now I have original Apple hardware that I want to install macOS on. Can I use that same stick or do I have to use...

    Hi there, I already have a hackintosh up and running with macOS 10.12.6 "Sierra". The mainboard is a Gigabyte GA-H270N-Wifi. Now let's assume I get my hands on a Gigabyte GA-Z270N-Wifi. Could I just swap the mainboard and the hackintosh continues to work as before? Or do I have to do a...

    GPUSensors still not compatible?

    Hi there, it looks like it's been a while since the Fake Sensors kext family has been updated. Is the GPUSensors.kext still not compatible with Sierra? The reason I ask is that with my brand new build I just had my machine suddenly shut off during rendering with Final Cut Pro X. Thanks to...

    G5 mod with TheLaserHive ATX mod kit

    So here is the second G5 case I bought used on EBay. The other one I repainted, whereas this one was used as is by me until recently. A few weeks ago I bought new Kaby Lake hardware and put it into a Corsair 250D. The modded G5 case with the old 2012-ish parts I gifted to a friend. I am using...

    Could I swap a H270 for a Z270 without re-installing the OS?

    Hi there, let's assume I have a working hackintosh with a Gigabyte H270N-Wifi. Now I feel like overclocking and I buy a Z270N-Wifi to replace it. If I did so would I have to re-install the macOS? Or would it just continue working?
