    i7-9700K no hyper-threading?

    So I'm set to build another hack soon based on the Z370 chipset and the i7-9700K. The 8700K is sold out currently here in South Africa. We went with the Asus Maximus X Hero for this build and it just requires a BIOS update for the 9th gen chips. The 9700K gives up hyper-threading, though. Is...

    Z390 and i7-8700K - any successful builds?

    Hi all, A friend of mine wants me to build him a new Hack. The only problem is that we need to stick with Gigabyte AORUS motherboards (for Thunderbolt support) and here in South Africa the Z370 boards are now few and far between. We originally chose the Gaming 7 because it offers enough M.2...

    Anyone else use macOS in VMWare?

    I've been finding my Sierra virtual machine highly useful for all sorts of things when building hackintoshes. I can run it on the same machine as I run Windows, have internet access to research, make installer USBs, edit config.plists, patch DSDTs, etc etc, pretty much anything you can do on a...

    Asus GT 730 2GB DDR3 in 10.9.5?

    Hi guys, I am able to install Mavericks and get into the operating system with GraphicsEnabler=Yes and -x bootflags. Obviously this is not ideal. However I am getting full resolution. Just no QE/CI or OpenCL. System info reports the chipset as unknown and only 1024GB but does identify...

    SUCCESS: Intel HD Graphics on Lenovo T530 2392 BGN

    Hi all, I just wanted to post this here because there's not a hell of a lot about it online and I thought others might find it useful. It turns out the Lenovo T530 is pretty easy to install 10.8.5 on but requires a very specific installation method, i.e. you have to install each kext in...

    Hi all, So my Hackintosh is up and running with full graphics although the audio is very noisy (ALC892) and there is no ethernet support. That, however, is fine for now. The more pressing issue for me is the error I'm getting when I run "Verify Disk" in Disk Utility. Here are the error...
