I am putting a 2014 Mac mini inside a 2006 20" iMac and am trying to reuse as many original components as possible. The wiring for the IR receiver/LED is what I am tackling at the moment. The iMac has brown, grey, purple and black wires while the Mini has all black wires. Does anyone know the...
at first I would like to thank all of you for all the great guides and the great work put into this forum. Thats GREAT! Without this Forum my project wouldn't be possible.
Some weeks ago I watched a YouTube Video about a little but powerful Mini-PC found on AliExpress.
I just recently purchased a newer laptop but with the old ram and SSD from my older upgraded laptop I’d like to build my first hackintosh!
I’d like to replicate the slow Mac mini but do some basic editing for music production.
I was looking at...
I am using a Mac mini from 2012, and had hoped for an upgrade from Apple this year.
I like the small formfactor, so I was wondering if it is possible to buy an Intel NUC and use it as a hackintosh?
Further more, I am using a Thunderbolt Display, and have read a lot of online posts, and as I...
I'm at a loss on this one. I've got a standard 2014 2.8ghz i5/HD5100 Mac Mini that just won't boot macOS. No matter what, I'm getting kextd stall IGPU.
Things I've tried:
-Reset SMC, NVRAM
-Apple diagnostics (passed with flying colours)
-Following Apple's instructions in creating a...
This is for a very compact build, I'm planning to buy this case, it is basically 23x20x8 cm.
I'm planning to buy the following:
-CPU Cooler Noctua NH-N9li
-RAM Ballistix Sport LT 16Go @2400
-SSD: Samsung 960 EVO 500 GO M.2
-HDD : Seagate Barracuda 3,5" 1To
-FANS: 1 or 2...
so i have a old mac mini mid 2007, it can boot in 64 efi but the reason apple blocked it from running higher os than lion was no gma 950 support in 64bit osx.
so i recently added a 150 ssd and noticed the wifi slot could be used with an egpu to at least get el captain running with a native...
I'm looking to build a new mac mini. I want it for some smart home applications and thus need one with WiFi and Bluetooth Low Energy support. Sadly I don't know if Bluetooth support is even possible. If yes, which MB would do it?
Thanks already for your support.
I just attempted to set up a egpu on my late 2014 mac mini running High Sierra using a Geforce GTX 1080 in a Akitio Node. The Node is connected through a thunder bolt 3 to 2 adapter to the computer. The card lights up and fans spin at first but I never received the prompt on my computer that a...
Forgive me since this isn't totally a hackintosh question, but I figured if anyone knew a solution, it would be this community.
I've got a couple of late 2009 Mac Minis running Mavericks. I recently replaced their hard drives with SSDs. Everything seems to work fine, however, I don't always...
I have a mac mini have been using it for sometime, now I upgraded it to two SSD / much more ram. But... Its still not giving me the performance that I need. I also work on a variety of platforms (development) and prefer native environments.
So an idea struck me to create a tower...

I had an old mac mini that I backed up using time machine before I sold it. Now that I have my hackintosh built I was trying restore from the backup. All seemed to work well. I installed...
After being really happy with my mHack, I think of building a little media center. So I come for advice :)
My main concerns are to keep it small, quiet, with low power consumption and sleep/wake functioning properly (as it will almost never be shut down). It will be use to store & play...
Hello. I want to create a hackintosh that isn't very powerful, because the main thing I will be running is safari and Xcode. It needs to be able to be able to run somewhat basic to intermediate programs coded on the machine. I want a compact and cheap alternative to a mac mini to hopefully...
Hey guys, ideally this will be my first build! I'm following this build for the $682 Skylake Mac Mini. My question is, will the build support driving two 1440p monitors at 60Hz refresh while doing very basic tasks like checking email and watching movies with the integrated graphics card on the...
Hi there!! I have in mind to build a reproduction of the Mac mini. What do you think about this configuration?
CPU: Intel Core i5 6400
MB: Asus Z170I PRO GAMING (I chose this one because I need a displayport and a m.2 slot)
CPU Cooler: Zalman CNPS2X
RAM: Crucial 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2133 Memory...
I have been searching around for a while bit was not able to find the answer I was looking for. My situation is as follows: I do have a FractalDesign Node304 case that I want to use to build something like a MacMini on a Skylake platform.
I want to go cheap. From the "Buyers Guides"...
So I had to sell my macbook pro late 2013 to pay for other things. Before we parted ways a few weeks ago I hastily made an el capitan boot usb. I forgot a few things.... It was to be used on my freshly updated desktop, which I had previouslu been running yosemite, but with audio issues...
I am a complete noob at this (have no experience building a computer) so I want to keep my first build as basic as possible.
I'm thinking of building something along the lines of a CustoMac Mini but in a nice looking HTPC case. It will mostly be used for watching Plex (server) and Kodi but...
