    OS X 10.9.5 Update

    I delayed applying this update because I've been working on some projects at home that I can't afford to be interrupted by an upgrade gone wild. So I finally got around to doing it and had everything printed out, backed up, etc. I repaired perms, downloaded 10.9.5, installed it, rebooted, and...

    Dead 1155 Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H motherboard--should I replace or upgrade?

    I don't have the -TH model, just the UD5H. I'm concerned that when I get mine back from Gigabyte it will die again. Those boards seem to be hit or miss. Against my better judgement, I'll probably put it in and sell the D3H and hope this doesn't happen again. (Hope is not a strategy!) I also had...

    Dead 1155 Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H motherboard--should I replace or upgrade?

    My GA-Z77X-UD5H just died as well. I bought my board as a refurbish from Microcenter four months ago. It's disappointing that it died so quickly, but some searching online suggests that it's not as uncommon as it should be. So today I bought a refurbished D3H, which gets much better reviews on...

    Updating Mavericks 10.9: GA-Z77X-UD5H

    Lifesaver post (#72 konjow) - thanks for posting your plist! I've been using my Hac as a daily driver for a couple of years. I'm not a complete noob, but I get stumped on updates sometimes. I switched to Mavericks (clean install) last night and had a machine that was booting just fine as far...

    Mac Mini with OSX Server, Cloud storage, Time Machine and iTunes server.

    Not trying to hijack the thread here, but I use a Synology NAS for Time Machine backups of my hackintosh, iTunes server, and a few other things including Airplay. It's accessible via AFP and has an amazingly good and simple web interface for managing the server. Cloud storage? Check out Cloud...

    Updated Nvidia Drivers still get Fermi Freeze w/ GTX 460 FTW

    I don't have a fix for you, just sympathy for your situation. I had a GTX 550 Ti until about 12 hours ago. I chimed in a couple of times on the other Fermi Freeze thread here (for the 560s), but I never heard of a fix. My workaround was to run Videowall (app store) on one of my desktops...

    560ti fermi freeze back with latest drivers/10.8.3

    I posted to this thread a while back - early May - about freezes with my GTX 550 Ti. I have been using Videowall since that time and haven't had a single freeze. I use a couple of desktops and keep it active on one of them. I like it actually! The downside is it costs a dollar or two, can't...

    help choosing Graphic Card

    The GTX 650 suggestion in this thread is a good one from my understanding. I would steer clear of the 4xx and 5xx due to incompatibility issues with 10.8.3 unless you can install at 10.8.2, which apparently isn't a problem for 4xx/5xx. My experience is with a GTX 550 Ti and 10.8.3 - I can...

    560ti fermi freeze back with latest drivers/10.8.3

    @lisapower - I have more than a full day now without a crash. Videowall seems to be keeping my GPU busy, but not *too* busy. Your method seems to be working. I'll check back in with an update. I think if it goes a week without a crash, that will be awesome.

    creating preconfigured installation image for easier installation?

    I'm sure that would be possible given very specific hardware, but the nature of osx86 is such that you *must* do at least some tinkering. It's one of those things where it would be worth a smile and two raised eyebrows if it worked, but you shouldn't expect it. (And I don't know where you would...

    560ti fermi freeze back with latest drivers/10.8.3

    Great idea. It's not a fix so much as it's a fun way to keep the problem at bay, assuming it works! I went with a different app called Videowall. It seems like the same thing, but has better reviews. Anyway, I'm a GTX 550 Ti owner and found the "kernel[0]: NVDA(OpenGL): Channel timeout!" message...

    MultiBeast 5.3 Update

    Awesome work on this Multibeast. I had trouble, but I brought it on myself. Quick recap for people who are noobs all over again because it's been so long since they had to reinstall. (I've been on 10.7.x for 1.5 years - had to relearn all of this.) * Follow directions on here for making a...

    GTX 550 Ti

    Haven't read all the posts in this thread, but I just upgraded my Hac today with a EVGA GTX 550 Ti and it worked out of the box. I had Intel integrated 3000 video before, which gave me artifacts. Those are gone. The only issue I had was a panic upon reboot. I decided to rerun MB v4.3 and...

    Mac OS X 10.7.3 Update - The Official Thread (Desktops)

    I haven't done this, but maybe this will help:

    Mac OS X 10.7.3 Update - The Official Thread (Desktops)

    Not an upgrade for me, I did a fresh build and new install. I'm new to the osx86 world. Hardware is in my sig, but basically I did this: 1) install, 2) MB w/Sys Util, User DSDT, Audio (ACL and AHDA), Network (LNX2MAC), Trim (for SSD), and the utils. Network still didn't come up, but installing...
