    How Does The Booting Mechanism Work?

    How does the booting mechanism work? What's going on "behind the scenes"? As a Mac user, I have always had multiple bootable drives in my tower Macs. Switching to a different boot drive was as easy as using the Startup Disk control panel or holding [Option] at boot to select a temporary...

    Hot Swap Impossible?

    My build includes a three-bay hot swap cage that accepts bare SATA drives. My workflow is such that I swap drives a lot. I have set the ports for the three hot swap bays to permit "hot-plug" in BIOS. The default 3rd party SATA kext does not make the "hot-plug" drives ejectable. I can still...

    Changing Just One Driver

    I need to change the SATA driver to the third party eSATA driver. I don't need to change anything else. This will get hot swap working for the three-drive hot swap cage I have installed. I determined this by starting with a fresh OS X install and using that eSATA driver and booting to it. Now I...

Most other times, I see the Apple logo, the go-round thingee starts to spin and then I get a panic. panic(cpu 0 caller 0xffffff80002dbe2e): Kernel trap at 0xffffff8000649e7e, type 13-general...

    UniBeast Question

    I used UniBeast to create an install USB drive for Mavericks. UniBeast places onto the USB drive what appears to be a net installer - "Install OS X Mavericks.app" - some 20 MB in size. Is there any reason I should not replace the installer app with the complete Install OS X Mavericks.app, some...

    Block Size Problem?

    Long time Macintosh user. My first exposure to Hackintosh. The machine in question was built for me by someone else. It came with Windows 8.1 and OS X 10.9.2 on separate drives, the largest of which is 1 TB. I have since added other, larger drives (2, 3, 4 TB) internally. The build also has a...
