    Upgrade Options

    I'm still running the box in my profile - a Gigabyte GA-Z170N-Gaming 5 motherboard with a core i5-6500 (4 core, 3.2GHz), 16GB RAM and onboard Intel graphics (HD 530), as well as an assortment of drives. This box is still on 10.12.6 with all current updates. I really like the case, it's a pretty...

    Best full backup (including bootloader) option?

    Hi all, I'm still on 10.12, and before I jump over to 10.13, I want to sort out a better backup strategy. I have Backblaze along with some manual backups, and I'm dumping another disk in my server to allow me to Time Machine this hackintosh. I also have a total of 3 drives in this box, one of...

    Loading is very sloooowww

    I'm a bit stumped on this one. I was trying to bring an old box back to life (Gigabyte GA-H55M-UD2H) which had been running 10.11 as the latest OS. It's back together with a mish-mash of parts and replacing my wife's seldom-used desktop (which was an old Core2Duo). I figured this would be...

    Known good ethernet card under $20

    I'm gifting my old hackintosh to my wife. It works well, and is faster than her old Core2Duo hackintosh. It does have network problems that I never got around to solving: sometimes multicast just stops working (which essentially breaks file sharing and printing on the network), and more...

    No accelerated video - GA-Z170N - Intel HD 530 gfx

    I'm still kind of catching up on how things differ with this whole EFI booting business, but after some issues with audio and migration assistant copying some extensions over from a previous hackintosh, I have this thing working. So far my last big problem seems to be accelerated graphics on...

    Migration Assistant - ElCap to Sierra boot fails

    So I just successfully installed Sierra on a new MB last night. It went well and booted fine off my SSD. I then did as I've done in the past and used Migration Assistant to pull my info from a backup of my previous install. I did deselect the "other files and folders", yet I woke up to an...

    How smoov are the Custo-Macs?

    Like, reaaall smoov? :) Basically, looking at the current CustoMac page and considering either the Mini or the Budget ATX as the base (board, CPU). I'm looking to not spend on a graphics card unless I later find it necessary, so working onboard graphics are a must. I know with some other...

    Need to upgrade on the cheap

    So my current desktop is built around a Core i3 from quite a few years ago (3.07 GHz, 256KB L2 cache, 4MB L3 cache, 533MHz bus speed). For graphics, I have some ancient GeForce 9500 GT card. For the most part, this is OK - I live most of my day in iTerm and remote ssh sessions with a fair...

    Natively supported ethernet card?

    I currently have an on-board Realtek card working with lnx2mac's driver, but I'm looking to install something that's natively supported by OS-X (snow leopard). What's a decent card available at one of the large online retailers that fits the bill? The Realtek works fine but for one annoyance...

    Hackintosh "reinstall" methods?

    Howdy, I'm a bit lost here, but I'm having a problem with my hackintosh that, until now, has been more reliable than my Apple hardware. On Thursday, we had lots of power outages. Ever since then, the system has not been right. It got closer to "right" after doing the somewhat dodgy "fix" of...

    Gigabyte GA-H55M-UD2H F11 Success

    Thought I'd go ahead and post a success thread here. Hardware details, then my MultiBeast settings, then my additional kexts, then my caveats/problems. Hardware Mainboard: Gigabyte GA-H55M-UD2H BIOS F11, board revision 1.3 http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-Micro-AT ... cx86com-20 CPU: Intel...

    Help - Need to replace dead iMac quickly and with little $

    Howdy, So it's not been a good week or so. Had a server for a new business venture fail while on vacation, hit a deer last week, and today my old c2d imac just died. No power, nothing. Even if it is just the power supply, that's $130, and who knows what will die next. If it's the mainboard...
