    [Solved] Clover hangs on "4630 scan entries"

    I had this problem this afternoon with Clover 5119 and Catalina. Tearing my hair out. What finally worked for me was to remove my video card and just use the internal graphics for the setup. Hardware is a GA-Z97X-UD5H. Video is (was) Sapphire RX-580.

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

    When Microsoft released its much maligned Windows 8, I abandoned Windows and switched to MacOS. I have come to like MacOS better and for the most part I like Apple's hardware. The problem, of course, is that if you want the OS, then you're also married to the hardware. And if Apple does...

    Logitech MX Master Mouse Lag FIX

    Smooze is wonderful. Only a few bucks and the effect is like scrolling on silk. Lots of customizations and the support is also stellar. Just remember that if you rebuild and want to transfer your license you need to email the dev.

    Catalina firmware update bricking real Macs

    I wish I had read this thread before I, too, bricked my 2018 MacBook Pro 15 installing Catalina. Here’s what happened to me this week: Installed Catalina a couple of weeks ago. Had some issues and decided to go back to High Sierra, which is what my machine shipped with. Pressed...

    (Solved)Hackintosh freezes while playing videos on safari/App store

    This can be confusing. You need to click on "releases" to get the zip file that contains the kext. Or, just follow my links above. Then, download

    (Solved)Hackintosh freezes while playing videos on safari/App store

    I did some research this evening on a system that was experiencing this problem. I had been hoping that switching from the Intel graphics to an Nvidia card would solve it, but no go. But it turns out that putting WhateverGreen and Lilu in efi/clover/kexts/other solves the problem for me...

    GA-Z77-DS3H Audio not working

    ALC887/888b from Multibeast 10.4.0 works for me in High Sierra on GA-Z77-DS3H. The system even sleeps and wakes properly, which is something I had trouble with in earlier builds on this board.

    [SOLVED] GA-Z77-DS3H network not working

    I have an "AtherosL1cEthernet.kext" that seems to work in my Z77-DS3H with High Sierra if I put it in clover/kexts/other. I'm not sure where I got it, but you can probably look it up. It might have been from an older Multibeast.

    Best Bluetooth Adapter for Hackintosh?

    The Asus USB-BT400 Bluetooth 4.0 USB adapter was plug and play for me in High Sierra on a GA-Z170X-UD5 TH. I didn't even have to reboot.

    WindowServer memory leak on High Sierra?

    Okay, I've been running 387. for a few days now. Seems fine. The memory goes up to 300-400 MB sometimes, but not into the GB range like I was seeing before.

    WindowServer memory leak on High Sierra?

    I just tried the suggestion posted by moonlight16. The script ran, but somehow my EFI was erased and now I can't reboot. In fact, at this moment my system appears to be totally bricked. I can't even get the BIOS. Not sure what happened. Update Okay, I have the system back again. Not sure what...

    WindowServer memory leak on High Sierra?

    I can confirm that the NVIDIA web driver 387. caused a similar problem on my system. Every time I scrolled up and down in the Activity Monitor, the memory usage for WindowServer would go up another 30 MB. It was up to 7 GB in a couple of hours! The temporary solution for me was...

    Change Finder Device Icon

    Here's another example of how weird this problem is. This morning I went to the Sharing panel in System Preferences and changed the name of the computer that was showing up in the Finder sidebar as an iMac. It now shows up as a Mac Pro, as it should. Thinking I had found a solution, I tried the...

    Change Finder Device Icon

    So much of life is like that. We get so frustrated when our ducks won't line up the way we want them to. But maybe that's because they want to line up a different way, which is even better than the way we had intended. Thanks for sharing your results with the SYMBIOS.

    Change Finder Device Icon

    I know what you're talking about. I have five Hackintoshes set up as Mac Pro 3,1. Most are normal, but two are like yours. One shows an iMac icon in the Finder sidebar and another shows a Mac Mini. But everywhere else in the OS that the icons appear, they show as Mac Pros -- even when you click...

    UniBeast: Couldn't remove installation packages

    I just got UniBeast to work, but I'm not sure how. Here's what I did... 1. On my 2011 MacBook Air, running El Capitan (10.11.2), I downloaded a fresh copy of El Capitan (10.11.3) and a fresh copy of UniBeast (6.1.1) 2. Reformatted a Kingston 32GB flash drive that had worked reliably for many...

    El Cap App Store Failing to Login

    loqshio's solution worked for me. Many thanks! BTW, apparently there's another solution that has to do with the shared folder if this one doesn't work:
