    tonymacx86's Skylake Thunderbolt 3 Test Build: GA-Z170X-UD5-TH - i5-6600K

    Well, I took a big plunge and bought the Focusrite RED 8pre audio interface, which uses Thunderbolt 2 to connect to the computer. I've gone through the full process detailed in Tony's post about activating Thunderbolt on my GA-Z170X-UD5 TH, and i can confirm that the interface is recognized by...

    Firewire 800 PCIe card not allowing hackintosh to boot :( Please help

    ticking 'fix firewire' in clover solved this problem for me. I'd check whether you have it ticked or not, and reverse whatever it's set to, reboot and see if problem is solved.

    OS X Driver for NVMe M.2 Solid State Drives Released

    It will happen brother :) only a matter of time before Apple stop being arses and make a native nvme driver. Their macpro community deserve as much

    OS X Driver for NVMe M.2 Solid State Drives Released

    Hi all, just wanted to chime in with my experiences with this ssd... I have been using it since the driver came out for OS X, it works perfectly for me, with sleep, shutdown etc and no kps. I used to have the reboot after shutdown issue before i even upgraded to the 950 pro, ticking 'fix...

    Testing Thread: Skylake Platform in OS X

    If you could talk me through or point me in the right direction as to how to do this, i'd really appreciate it. I've read loads of reports that no one can get NVMe working on hacks yet :( seems apple's version of NVMe is different. EDIT: Also, thanks for your response Tony, very useful

    Testing Thread: Skylake Platform in OS X

    Hey Tony, Nice work on this, fantastic result. I'd really appreciate it if you could let me know how you're getting on with this system aside from the graphics issues. I sort of went mad the other night and ordered this mobo, hoping it will be relatively smooth. I have a supported nvidia card...

    How to install Clover - back to absolute basics please

    Hey Simon, This Guide is pretty straightforward and i think constitutes a 'basic guide for moving to Clover'. You don't install clover to your hard drive until you are successfully booting into os x on the computer. Clover can be anywhere, be it a usb stick or a hard drive, and can identify...

    Motherboard and RAM with Best Chance for Future Skylake Compatibility?

    Nah, it's not a big issue. I just wanted to make sure you knew :). No one can say with certainty, but i wouldn't worry about the ram being compatible. It's unbuffered, non-ecc, it's pretty standard. The chances of it being incompatible are lower than the chances of z170 never being compatible imo.

    does mac osx El capitan or Yosemite work for me ?

    Of course, just follow the guide. Once you're finished windows will show up as a boot option in Clover.

    Motherboard and RAM with Best Chance for Future Skylake Compatibility?

    It's very likely that all z170 will be supported eventually, however it is also likely that full support won't arrive until 2016 Q1. Also please note for the Gigabyte board you are looking at, you will have to tick 'kernelPM patch' on Clover for it to boot due to the new gen gigabyte mobos...

    does mac osx El capitan or Yosemite work for me ?

    Follow this guide, carefully & thoroughly. Once installed, simply remove the os x hard drive/disable it in the bios. Then install windows on the other hard drive, making sure that the hard drive you install it onto is using the GPT partition tables. Once you've done that, plug the os x drive...

    Clover ASUS P8Z68V - Cant boot into UEFI

    Hi, I just discovered this thread, and just incase you havent solved your issue, i managed to work out how to do it on your board a wee while ago... Some motherboards don't automatically recognise Clover as a UEFI bootable volume, with most of these motherboards it can be added in the...

    X99 Compatibility

    Hey igouvea, Are you booting with Clover or Chameleon? It sounds like you're booting el capitan without using the correct RT Variables to disable SIP. Please edit config.plist in your clover directory and add... <key>RtVariables</key> <dict> <key>CsrActiveConfig</key>...

    Testing Thread: Skylake Platform in OS X

    Oh man, what a shame! Here's hoping 10.10.2 sorts it out. I'm in desperate need of upgrading, but really don't want to miss out on USB 3.1/Thunderbolt 3, among many skylake features. Thanks for all you guys are doing

    Bad news for GIGABYTE Z170 series motherboards!

    Damn that's a shame! I'm one of the many holding out until skylake looks like a safe plunge.

    testing without case ... any doubts?

    Just be sure not to have anything resting upon something that could short circuit it... I normally rest the motherboard on top of the ESD bag it came in when doing this. Also don't touch it while it's on :)
