    Upgrading Old Build from Chimera/Yosemite

    Hi all, It's been a while since I've been on these forums! I have an aging but still kicking Z68 build that I've been lazy about updating but am now planning on getting to the latest and greatest. I hear OS upgrades are cake once you're on Clover, so I figure I might as well update to High...

    Fresh OS X 10.8.5 reinstall on working Chimera system?

    I have a 10.8.5 system working on Chimera 2.2.0 r2248. It's solid but I want to do a fresh install of the 10.8.5 so I can have a fresh system without the accumulated clutter, while retaining the bootloader/drivers/etc. What would be the best way to do this? Yes I know it's an old OS but I have...

    [Solved] Choose which OS to boot to before restarting?

    (apologies for any incorrect terminology; it's been a while since I messed with my installation) tl;dr - is it idiotic to use a script to alter the .plist file on my "Boot OS X" volume so I can restart into any OS, bypassing the need to manually select one at the bootloader? I dual-boot...

    Is it possible to update a Yosemite Chimera Installation to High Sierra?

    Hello. I did my hackingtosh in 2014 with yosemite and i didn't want to change, but the latest release of Adobe After Effects requires 10.11 at least, so i'm forced to change. I installed my system with chimera; is it possible to directly update it to High Sierra? (is it also recommended?) I...

    Backing up questions ("dd" command, SuperDuper, Time Machine). Preparing to upgrade OS.

    I am getting ready to upgrade my OS from Mountain Lion 10.8.2 to either El Capitan or Sierra. I unplugged my 128GB SSD boot drive and plugged it into my dad's CentOS 6 machine (which BTW couldn't read or mount the hfs+ Mac OS Extended(Journaled) file-system). On that we used the dd command "dd...

    Switch from Chimera to Clover [Yosemite]

    Hello! I'm using Chimera to boot Yosemite, but as it does not work with my GPU I would like to be using my (already-working) Clover plist. I already have Clover installed to my SSD, but I can't boot into it. It is overridden by the already installed Chimera, which by the way, is just giving me...
