    iTunes acting strange

    Tried to work out where to post this. Did a search but found nothing matching. I just did a clean install of Mojave, runs sweet thanks to me switching to an AMD card. Created a clean iTunes library but after playing music for say 10 or 20 minutes iTunes will hang, I can force quit it but after...

    [Solved] No longer full installer image?

    When I downloaded Mojave last month I received a big 6gb plus download. But today when I pressed download it downloaded a 22mb file which is just the starter app. I'm guessing it restarts the Mac in recovery and downloads the image there and then, kinda makes making a USB drive complicated...

    Internal Blu-Ray drive?

    Currently, use my PS3 for playing Blu-Ray movies but would like to use my Hackintosh so only after one that plays discs, not burn them. I saw MacSales has some LG drives which all do Blu-Ray burning and hence cost a fair bit but looking at Amazon I see several drives half that cost but not...

    Nvidia or AMD? Looking for advice.

    I currently have a GTX 960 with 2GB of RAM which felt great, especially after coming from a 2011 iMac. But, a year in things feel like they could be better, plus I'm getting a bit tired of the endless cat and mouse game between Apple's updates and Nvidia's poorly performing web drivers. So...

    Choppy UI with Nvidia on 10.13.3?

    Running the latest 10.13.3 with the 156 nvidia web driver for my GTX960 but noticing weird UI lag. Like, have Minecrfat open and getting a solid 213fps yet playing netflix gives me dropped frames and likewise dragging windows around or resizing them feels choppy. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Free space irregular.

    Random weird problem of the day. My hackintosh suddenly stopped freeing space on my drive when I delete files. I have a 500GB SSD, free space is 45gb, if I copy 10gb from an external drive it's still 45GB and when I delete the 10GB it still stays 45GB. Just ran /usr/bin/du -sh * to get a...

    The operation can’t be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code -50).

    I'm getting a lot of these -50 errors on a drive hanging off my hackintosh. At first, I thought my drive was toast but when I connect it to my imac it works just fine. Anyone got any suggestions?

    Insert system disk?

    When I start my machine it goes into a prompt asking for a system disk. The only way I can get it to boot into clover is to go into bios and manually select the drive. I thought I might have messed something up when trying to make it a triple boot and seeing I have a backup of my data I booted...

    macOS 10.13.1 update, reboot at 70%

    Weird one this. I was putting off the update as I did not have the time to fix whatever the update might break but was not paying attention when switching off and it ran the update. Now I get the Apple logo, loads roughly 70% and then restarts so. I tried safe boot but no difference. Tried to...

    Restoring boot order?

    I installed Windows and Linux after I installed macOS and since then the hackintosh starts into GRUB. I can get to macOS by going into the BIOS and selecting the SSD macOS sits on but that's an annoying workaround. Windows and Linux sit on a regular HD. Is it possible to get the hackintosh to...

    Radeon RX 570 and RX 580, how good is the native support?

    High Sierra is here but no updated drivers and I read online that the relationship between Apple and Nvidia has soured. On top of that, there have always been small bugs with the Nvidia web drivers. So, I'm now seriously considering the move to an AMD card as Apple has native support for those...

    Strange TimeMachine problem

    Every day after a few hours of using my Backups.backupdb folder on my external USB drive will become locked on invisible. If I do "get info"I see you have unknown access". Restarting my hackintosh will fix it but after a few hours it happens again. Anyone ever seen this?

    Temporary slowness after sleep

    I noticed a weird lagg/slowness after my machine has gone to sleep. It will resume normal operation after roughly 1 minute. At first I thought it was just due to the whole system waking up but the last 2 days I have had the machine to stay awake and ONLY let the display go to sleep and it still...

    No sound on fresh install

    My board has a Realtek ALC892 on it, which is now available in multibeast 9.10 but I get no audio device. I previously installed my hacintosh with multibeast 9.0.1 and audio worked just fine. What am I doing wrong?

    Cheapest LEGAL way to get Windows 7-10?

    Yes yes, I know, yech, Windows. I only want it for 1 thing. Running Obduction from Cyan (the Myst guys). The game refuses to start and when I talked to support and they found i had a hackintosh they told me my computer is unsupported. I'm asking for LEGAL as I don't want activation hassle, I...

    Best System Definition?

    Just curious, what are peoples experiences with different system definitions? I have a Gigabyte GA-Z170M-D3H with an i5, 32gb of ram and a GTX 960. So you would think maybe pick an iMac that has that CPU but the board is more fully featured so a MacPro? What differences does it make to...

    Native vs webdrivers (nvidia cards)

    Reading the comments on this ****** thread leave me confused: https://www.******.com/r/hackintosh/comments/2tpdfg/natively_supported_graphics_card/ I'm noticing some small glitches with the web drivers, both in OS (the menu bar flicker) and games so was thinking that maybe swapping to a card...

    Gaming on a hackintosh with a GTX 960

    So far I have noticed some games not running properly. Minecraft, game itself runs butter smooth but as soon as I enable the shaders it will screw up. Worked fine on my old iMac. This is an OS/Driver issue as it works fine on this machine under Linux. Steam, the payment window for paypal has...
