    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?

    Sorry all - for whatever reason email from this site never makes it to my mailbox (yes, checked spam). Anyhow, can you post that script, either as an attachment or just pasted into a "code" block? This sounds interesting and I do have a CCC license for my laptops. These days, is everything...

    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...

    macOS 10.12.6 Security Update (2018-002)

    I'm a non-AMD, non-Nvidia person who got burned by outdated kexts last time. This time it all went smoothly using the appstore update. I also have been installing all Clover updates, FWIW. I need to remember to dig through the forums here and figure out how to best keep all the third-party...

    Security Update 2018-001 for macOS Sierra 10.12.6 and OS X El Capitan 10.11.6

    Oh, I don't run nvidia, just the stock/onboard Intel HD530. There were three show-stoppers, ACL, Lilu and IntelGraphicsFixup. "Supported" in the hackintosh world seems like a pretty slippery word though, but I'm pretty sure I found this board based on some list here. Just thought it was weird...

    Security Update 2018-001 for macOS Sierra 10.12.6 and OS X El Capitan 10.11.6

    Yeah, it would be really good if the mods maybe put a news item on the front page for this as it feels more like "10.12.7" than just a security update. It looks like no matter what graphics option you've got, something bad will happen. I sorted my issues out I think. Rule 1 for me now should...

    Security Update 2018-001 for macOS Sierra 10.12.6 and OS X El Capitan 10.11.6

    Removed alc and can boot (but no sound), but still no graphics. Boots, progress bar hits about 70%, and that's it. Can remote in with screen sharing. Anyone else have integrated HD530 working on this update?

    Security Update 2018-001 for macOS Sierra 10.12.6 and OS X El Capitan 10.11.6

    Damn, this totally hosed me, thought it was a minor update. Famous last words. Can't even remember why installed Lilu at this point. I'm on 10.12.6 + this update, considering just rolling back until there's more input. I can only boot safe mode, and in safe mode, can only login remotely with...

    Loading is very sloooowww

    Ugh. Very weird. I tried two 2.3 versions, the older being v2.3 revision 3333. Still very slow, and on these older versions can't boot 10.12. Of note, in all these periods where the UI is not doing anything, the USB stick is being accessed - the activity LED flickers the entire time. No...

    Loading is very sloooowww

    Can you give me an idea of just how old a version I should be trying? A few months? A year?

    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

    Well, I bought a batch of Intel cards from China. Will be trying the first one soon and will update this thread with model numbers and such. Then I suppose I'll be Ebay-ing the rest (had to buy 6).

    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...

    How to Fix iMessage

    Just a datapoint, but this is an old ID. I think it goes back to my G3 iBook... Is there any harm in starting over with a new serial?

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

    Bump. Looks like only the lack of hardware encode and working iMessage are all I have left. Any further ideas?

    How to Fix iMessage

    Any ideas? Is it worth pursuing with Apple or is that a bad move? My debug still looks good, the customer number reported in the error remains the same, the SN still shows as invalid at apple and valid at other serial checkers. I saw the pointer to that reddit thread, which is about a year...
