In the last weeks I've been working on my first Hackintosh, and I'm finally able to post it as a success. I needed a new Workstation for Video editing with DaVinci Resolve,, I thought of buying the new Mac Pro but 6000$ was to much for me. So I started exploring the Hackintosh Universe and...

EDIT: I'm marking this solved, because the original intent of this thread was to diagnose the system's inability to wake from sleep (which is solved in Post #10 of this thread). The current problem (cold-boot on wake from sleep) is started as a new thread here: Macpro5,1 cold-boots on wake from...

I have a mac pro 5.1 (mid 2010) with Sierra 10.12.6. I've tried to change the graphic card to AMD Radeon RX 570. First it seems like it works immediately (oob) after installing the physical hardware. It boots with no problem, I can watch movies, browse the internet, starting up all...

Curious which OS I should focus on running on a MacPro 1,1 in 2016?
I know, it's old. But I just can't let this machine die. It's a MacPro 1,1 (2006) I pushed to 2,1 and did the 8core processor upgrade. It's currently running 32gigs of RAM, 5770 gfx & and booting on an SSD to Snow...

- CPU Intel Xeon E5410. This CPU from connector 771...

Greetings. My first foray here.
I have a 2007 MacPro1,1 that has been a great box. Unfortunately, I've run up against the "You can't install/upgrade that software" wall good and hard. It was bad enough when I couldn't upgrade OS X past 10.6.8. Now I can't upgrade most of my tools nor install...
