    Fried my motherboard. GA-Z370-WIFI

    Broke my Hackintosh. Water spill, took out my external backup drive. A few drops apparently got onto the motherboard, a GA-Z370-WIFI. They don’t sell them anymore. The power supply may be fine (case lights up, fans run), but no POST, no BIOS screen, etc, so I assume the mobo died. Should I...

    Solved > Clover: In config.plist, I set scan to <false/>, with no boot entries defined

    Shot myself in the foot. Made a mistake and messed up my hackintosh. In the config.plist, I set scan to <false/>, without first creating custom boot entries. Now, clover shows zero entries. No way to boot macOS or the Recovery drive. Does anyone know how I can access my drive, so I can...

    Desktop question: Why sleep?

    Desktop question: Why sleep? Makes sense for laptops. But desktops? My small white box (intel HD630 graphics) draws very little power. The power supply's fan doesn't even kick on unless I push the CPU. I usually do not. No spinning disks. Stock CPU fan and case fan. Sleep mode...

    Clover Questions

    Some time ago, my machine had a Clover boot option for the macOS Recovery partition. No longer, not sure what happened. The Recovery partition still exists, just no boot option for it in Clover. The boot option is not simply hidden. (Meaning that F3 does not display it.) Yes, FakeSMC.kext...

    Mojave running on 2011 MPB.

    I have installed macOS Mojave unto my 13" 2011 MacBookPro using this utility: http://dosdude1.com/mojave/ Seems stable. All the new apps work. The iCamera works fine. But there are few minor graphical artifacts, some menus are not painted correctly, and difficult to read. Not sure I will...

    Noobie question

    As I understand it: The ACPI defines a set of tables which provide an interface between the OS and the system firmware. The DSDT - the primary table - tells the OS how to interact with the motherboard’s hardware. The SSDT - the secondary table - is used to configure system power management...

    Thoughts on the Apple 9-12-18 event.

    The Apple 9-12-18 event has no news on new Macs. Just phones and watches. Buckets of them. Regarding Apple computers ... just crickets. Not even vapor. Cook is great with phones and watches (Apple's cash cows), but he is not stewarding the Mac lineup well. Apple currently makes 7...

    The Basics

    I have gotten pretty far with the Buyer’s guide and Installation guides (and generous good luck). I realized that I have a very shallow understanding of the fundamentals. Still have so many newbie questions. Grrr… Many people here post EFI folders and kexts from their builds, but I do...
