Now up and running. Problem was with installer wanting to do a firmware upgrade before installing. Stork suggested changing system definition to iMac 14,2 and installing with that and then changing it back to Mac Pro 5,1 (thanks, Stork). Did that and upgrade from High Sierra to Mojave went...
A friend was given Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0 and wants to know if it will work with Sierra or High Sierra to use on her new PC-Mac. Neither of us has had any luck googling for the answer to this question.
Anyone using Photoshop Elements 4.0 on Sierra or High Sierra?
I finally got some time to replace the GTX980 in my X99 build with the Gigabyte Rx580 Aorus
At first, I was unable to get it to boot to a usable screen, but with some research, I found my answers. Many patches later to my DSDT (thanks to RehabMan for most of the patches) and it compiles...
If you have an icon at the Clover screen labeled Boot EFI Windows from EFI then you have not installed Windows Legacy Mode.
Another check is to launch the Windows disk management tool and look at your drive structure. If you have a WinRe Tools partition, Microsoft Reserved and EFI partition in...
After days of frustration I finally found a way to install High Sierra from the USB.
Booting the USB, selecting Install icon at the new Clover screen, on reboot selecting the install icon for the HDD was getting me a white screen, then the eternal beach ball. One go-round looked as if was going...
Multi Booting with Sierra, Windows 10 and Linux Ubuntu on Legacy BIOS hardware is as easy as doing it on UEFI hardware.
What you need to start:
Note that the Sierra USB installer must have Clover installed Legacy mode. This is easily accomplished with UniBeast:
You can install the operating...
Are you planning hardware upgrade or OS upgrade? Else why post in Buying Advice?
To upgrade to Sierra from Mavericks see https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/direct-update-to-macos-sierra-using-clover.201465/ or do a clean install.
Installing on a laptop is not as easy as a desktop. I am still struggling with a G751JY.
Have you included the fix for installing on NVMe in your Clover boot USB? OS X will not install on NVMe without it since it has no support for NVMe drives.
Once again UniBeast/MultiBeast has made this an easy thing to do.
To begin with, build your UniBeast USB:
Connect UniBeast USB and boot up, F12 to get device selection and select the USB - hit enter.
At the Clover screen, if you want to see the post text, right arrow over to options and add -v...
Interesting AIO from Coolermaster - CPU cooler+radiator+fans in a single package for mITX case applications:
I have the Fenvi adapter with an Apple Broadcom BCM94360CD iMac WiFI/BT card (both bought from Amazon.com) in a build with an MSI H77M G43 and i5 3570K and it work just fine. Also tested it in the X58A build in my sig.
The only problem I see is that the card seems to be hard to find today -...
Built a Legacy Mode Sierra USB installer and tried a clean install on the X58A.
Regardless of presence of NullCPUPM kext in Clover/kexts/other folder I am getting a KP on AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext. Clover 3423 from El Capitan MultiBeast does not seem to be injecting kexts.
There are only...
Updating PB7 to GM this morning. Since reboot to installer is has been sitting on
busy timeout(0), (240s), kextd wait(0): 'AppleACPICPU'
busy timeout(1), (240s), kextd wait(0): 'AppleACPICPU'
for the last half hour. No drive activity light blink at all.
Finally had some time today to test install Sierra on my signature build.
I followed this guide ( http://tonymacx86.com/threads/how-to-create-a-macos-sierra-public-beta-installation-usb.195077/ ) to make the Sierra installation USB and the latest Clover r3676 I downloaded from SourceForge with...
MultiBooting Win10, OS X and Ubuntu on separate drives is as simple a procedure as installing all 3 on the same drive and booting them with Clover ( See http://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-multibooting-uefi.197352/ ).
What you need:
3 HDDs or SSDs or some combination of the two.
So far this has been a dream laptop to work with OS X on. I have not really done much with it past the basic install of Sierra PB1 except to install the nVidia drivers for the GTX980M GPU. 1920x1080 screen resolution on a 17.3 screen makes the fonts too small for me to read so I have to attach a...
