    Yosemite build on GA-X79-UP4, FIREWIRE audio device issue multicore

    I followed the original guide by DavidHyde18 here and it works just great! HOWEVER! I have one remaining issue to resolve and its driving me insane. When CPUS=1 flag is entered (either in the Extra .plist or at boot), the sound to my FIREWIRE device works flawlessly, however, to utilise all the...

    Hackintosh dies after 1 hour - Audio/ethernet causing kernel panic? Yosemite 10.10.3 GA-X79-UP4 Cor

    To begin with - I'm more of a lurker and not much of a poster - but thanks to the tonymacx86 community i had in the past successfully built an extremely stable hack running ML for over 2 years. The OS was in need of an update, so i figured I'd take it a step further and upgrade hardware at the...

    Allegro FW800-E Apollo sound card in FireWire

    Since my build is based on the GA-x79-UP4 motherboard and doesn't have Thunderbolt I bought the Allegro FW800-E Pcie card and flashed Apollo with the FW firmware on my MacBook where it works well. On the Hackintosh it plays the audio but the audio stutters all the time. Any idea how to fix this...

    GA-X79-UP4 / i7-4820K / EVGA GeForce GTX 760

    I bought parts straight from the recommended list and expected the build to be pretty easy, but this last step of configuring the system is harder than I expected. I simplified the system by removing all but one stick of 8 GB RAM to make the process more straightforward. I got UniBeast to...

    Help Needed: GA-X79-UP4 with i7-4820K and EVGA GTX 760

    I've found the guides helpful so far, but a mixture of trial and error has been necessary to set the parameters for this build, even though it is a recommended set of hardware. To get to the Mac OS X configuration program I used these parameters (all on one line): UseKextCache=Yes npci=0x3000...

    Trying to get desktop to Sleep properly... "Wake reason: ? (network)". GA-X79-UP4, 10.9.1 Mavericks

    Hackintosh is otherwise fine except for inconsistent responses to being put to sleep. Sometimes, when I put the computer to sleep, it goes down fine. Lights and fans off and everything. This usually happens after a restart or the first time that I put it to sleep. Usually, the next times that I...
