    I'm having trouble with fonts in Mojave using UHD630 graphics (ASRock Z370M-ITX/ac motherboard with Coffee Lake i7 8700 and 16 GB RAM) and a Philips 27" display (i.e., non-retina).

    [Solved] Need USB 3.1 Gen1 MB connector to USB2

    My case has 4 USB2 ports on the front. Unfortunately, my Asus ROG Strix Z370-I mother board only has one USB2 header. However, it also has a 3.1 gen 1 header. So, is there a cable I can buy that goes from this header down to two USB2 connections?

    Endless reboot loop during 10.13.2 to 10.13.6 update

    I just tried to update from 10.13.2 to 10.13.6 using Software Update and I'm stuck on an endless reboot loop. It started to reboot from "Boot MacOS Install from MacSSD" at the Clover window, gets about 1/4 of the way on the progress bar, then reboots. This repeats endlessly. How can I get around...

    Bluetooth mouse stutters

    I have an Apple Magic Mouse and a Broadcom BCM94352Z (NGFF Dual Band 802.11ac 867M Wifi BT 4.0) card in my new Coffee Lake/High Sierra build and it really has issues.

    OK, I must be completely blind because I cannot see how to start a "conversation" with a user. I'd like to contact a member about a board we both have but I am unable to locate a private message button or some such. So, what's the solution?

    VLC 3 and 4k HVEC hardware decoding

    The newest version of VLC (3.0.0) was released late last week and is supposed to have automatic HVEC hardware decoding. My Coffee Lake hackintosh (8700, i7 6-core, UHD 630 gpu) decodes UHD Blu-Ray ripped 4k/DTS-MA Blade Runner 2049 just fine; however, my 2017 MacBook Pro Kaby Lake (dual-core i7...

    I have a NUC i5 with El Cap installed and it's working great. It has a 250 GB m2 SSD. I'd like to add a 2 TB spinning hard drive and make a fusion drive out of both. Is it possible to clone the current installation to an external hard drive, then make the fusion drive, then put the current...

    I have put El Cap 10.11.5 on a NUC5i5MYHE with an internal NGFF m.2 Dell WiFi/Bluetooth card. However, when I boot it, I get a panic cpu 2 caller during boot and the computer restarts, repeating this cycle continuously. If I connect a Bluetooth adapter to a USB port, the computer boots just...

    Link speed only 130 Mbit/s with real Airport card

    I've been experience this speed problem (130 Mbit/s as reported by Network Utility) with my Custo Mac Mini (quad-core i5, 8 gb RAM) since installing a real Airport Extreme 802.11n card with a dual-antenna adapter. I am running Lion 10.7.2 and some searching suggested the IO80211family.kext was...

    Screen saver nor display sleep no longer work

    This problem just cropped up a couple of days ago. I've been on 10.6 for many months now and it's been fine, but something unusual has happened. Is there a kext or preference file that can be deleted, or some other way to restore these?

    The 1 TB boot drive limit

    I searched for this but did not see it in the forums. Can anyone offer an explanation why hackintoshes are limited to booting from partitions of 1 TB or smaller? It seems like a strange problem.

    Sonnett Aria Extreme and Snow Leopard? Does anyone know if this card will work with a hackintosh under Snow Leo? It is for G4/G5 Macs, thus is only "officially" supported up to 10.5. But it seems as though it's a clone of Apple's Airport cards.

    DSDT and mobo revisions

    I'd like to do a clean install with a new graphics card and my p55a-ud4p has two revisions. However, when I check the DSDT database there isn't a rev 1 or rev 2 listed, just the p55a-ud4p. Does this mean that the DSDTs for this board will work with either revision?
