    pastrychef's Asus ROG Strix Z370-G Gaming (WI-FI AC) build w/ i9-9900K + AMD Vega 56

    Oh, fair to middlin'......not bad really. Lucked into figuring the problem I almost posted about out. CaseySJ helped me with a TB config, and even without hacking the firmware, just using the base Asus EX3 firmware, my TB card started showing up in the Thunderbolt section of SysInfo - which...

    pastrychef's Asus ROG Strix Z370-G Gaming (WI-FI AC) build w/ i9-9900K + AMD Vega 56

    Hey, there, got a question.... My Asus Z370-A running OC 6.3 runs almost perfectly, BUT (well, I wouldn't be posting after all this time if I didn't have an issue...). For the life of me, I can't get OC to respect boot order in OpenCanopy (or at the cli, either). As I need Mojave for some...

    Gigabyte X299X - Catalina Support

    First of all, thanks for the reply. I saw your previous post and studied it, and I have a question. Actually, two questions. The first is do you actually use this EFI on an X299X Aorus Master? You don't list an X299X Aorus Master in your list of systems, so I'm just wondering if you've ever...

    Gigabyte X299X - Catalina Support

    Thanks for the reply; wasn't late at all, not by my standards..... I have a Radeon 7, which with the exception of the Vega 56 and 64, is one of the most compatible AMD cards out there, and it does work well, even with all the stuff I'm running. The 5xxx AMD cards, well, I read and hear a lot of...

    Gigabyte X299X - Catalina Support

    @Gogeta-Blue Well, it's been a bit of time, but I thought I would ask about your Gigabyte X299X Aorus Master: Have you had any progress/improvement with the board? I ask because I'm considering buying it, and wondered if the F3d bios has made any improvements? Or have you just given up on...

    macOS 10.15.6 Update

    Have to say, I completely agree with you. Big Sur looks like a cartoon, or maybe it was done by a Designer who took too much Orange Sunshine........

    macOS 10.15.6 Update

    Well, okay, went ahead and did it. Seems fine. But this release is not where I'm focused......Big Bird, uh Big something like that or other.....that's where I'm focused.

    Apple Announces "3rd Transition" for macOS: From Intel CPUs to Apple Silicon

    So here's my recommendation for any (meaning every) Hackintosh user: make sure you have a spare SSD running Windows 10 (a 240GB will do just fine, and they are pretty cheap ~$25-$30 here in the US). Make sure you can always boot into it, and keep it up to date. Install some of the programs...

    Apple Announces "3rd Transition" for macOS: From Intel CPUs to Apple Silicon

    So, I spent the entire day working on my X299 system on Windows 10. It was fine. I actually did some renders with the latest version of Resolve and that went swimmingly......very fast, and faster than the same renders on Catalina or Mojave. The programs I use the most, Resolve, the Adobe...

    Asus X299 - Catalina Support

    The point is: you have a different motherboard than me, you have a different generation of processor and a different processor, you have a different bios with a lot different requirements to get it going, your PCI slot assignments are wildly different from mine, your ethernet is different...

    Asus X299 - Catalina Support

    Actually, until you answer my question, I can't help you. I have a different motherboard and entirely different setup, why are you asking me for these details? Makes no sense to me unless....did someone tell you to ask me all this? Someone on this board? Why would you ask for all these...

    Asus X299 - Catalina Support

    The graphics card isn't an issue. I have zero special configs for the Radeon VII. Use his EFI, and you'll be fine. Another very important difference is that you have a different processor which will most probably require one of the 3xxx bios versions, which I don't have. That means you will...

    Asus X299 - Catalina Support

    First of all, your system and mine are different, and yet, this post, and it's corresponding EFI, is almost completely identical to yours: https://github.com/shinoki7/Asus-X299-Hackintosh#base-efi-configuration Why wouldn't you use that?

    2020 is the Twentieth Anniversary of Mac OS X What does the future hold ?

    I tend to think maybe not. Remember, not only are Intel Macs premium priced ($$$), but they also create computer support challenges and complexities, and many other costs that I think a lot of companies (particularly now) would prefer to avoid. But, I could be wrong. We'll see.....

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    Well, first of all, I worked in Silicon Valley for over 20 years, reviewing and recommending and actually purchasing computer equipment and I also worked in educational institutions here in the US for over 10 years doing similar work.

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    Mostly, I agree with your replies. My point was, in a roundabout way, that Hackintosh really is the best option now. But not this one, the one about my new and ridiculously expensive Macbook Pro. I'm really not sure that this was a good purchase. I think it just might be a good time to...

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    Thanks for your response, but I think I know more about corporate and educational institutions than you do. I'll play along as long as I feel like it, and no longer.

    2020 is the Twentieth Anniversary of Mac OS X What does the future hold ?

    But for large purchasers of Macs, like corporations and educational institutions, I don't think they are confused. Purchases of Intel based Macs are being seriously reviewed and in many cases, these purchase orders will be withheld. I have spec'd equipment for Silicon Valley firms and I think a...

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    Probably, you're correct. So, for me, it just means that there's no real incentive to buying Intel based Macs anymore and paying such a high premium to do so. Sure, I would consider buying an Intel based Mac at a very significant discount, but not at the current pricing. I know of some Mac...
