Four years ago i built my first computer and hackintosh, and it has served me well throughout the years, however as i require more and more computing power, the systems is starting to show its age.
For this build i am looking for three things specially: Size, Power and...
On almost all the adapters that you can buy, the manufacturer incorrectly threw the ground poligon.Therefore, you need to isolate the NGFF adapter from the BCM94360CS2 network card and from the shield that installed on the motherboard. Sometimes need to isolate all places where we must...
I bought a BCM943602CS with an adapter for my laptop as it is supposed to work OOB. Well, Bluetooth does perfectly, even in Clover I can use Magic Keyboard. WLAN does not. It works for some minutes and then either my laptop freezes and then the screen fades slowly without any...
I installed HS on my setup a few weeks ago and everything is working very smooth including iMessages and FaceTime. I followed pastrychef’s guide for coffee lake. The only issue I am currently facing is, I bought a native support BCM94360CD from OSXWiFi a few days ago. WiFi and...
The Sapphire RX580 seems to be a popular graphics option as of late because of its native support. On the same day as the big 30th announcement, Apple/Blackmagic released a "pro" version of their eGPU kit:
Any thoughts on...
First post - coming back to OSx86 after a long time, since I had my first OSx86 on Tiger OS, when it had just started....
Does the kernel make use of native 64 bit on this OS? (i.e. without the use of any form of Virtualization?)
I have recently been looking into using Apple SSD's in a hackintosh build for native support and trim. I have found these options to convert the proprietary connector to pcie.
PCIe SSD Expansion Card
Mfr P/N: PCIEA13SSDOWC SKU: OWCPCIEA13SSD

My friend wants to disable some of High Sierra's kexts on load, so he can try to prevent a black screen and such.
Is there an easy way to achieve that?
Or even yet, is there a way to do it?
Thanks a bunch guys!
He needs to do that in order to install High Sierra with a 1st Gen...
Hi, I have Sierra 10.12.5 installed on my Lenovo P580, and I'm looking for Wi-Fi card for this hackintosh. The requirements are:
- native handling on Sierra (or easy install),
- half-miniPCIe size,
- it can be only 300Mbps, no matter,
Previously I had Intel AC-7260, I sold it since installed...
I have been a Hackintosh tinker for more than 4 years. Little by little I realized that my PC mindset was not working anymore when building a Hackintosh. More often than not newest is enemy of good. Let me explain myself.
When building a Hackintosh choosing the right components is paramount...
After tinkering for a while with my Hackintosh, I came to the conclusion that using a modern graphics card such as a 900 o 1000 series was going to cause different issues that range from annoying-but-ok to deal-breakers such as rendering transparent some metal windows. Thus I decided to dedust...
Hi guys, this is my first desktop Hackintosh
Specs are as follows:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
NVIDIA Geforce 210 1024 MB VRAM
When using NullCPU power management you can see the temps are really great.
The performance is definitely better without that kext, but when I am...
After getting my brand-new hackintosh up and running, I figured it was time for a small programming project. I missed the ability to control my display brightness with the F1 / F2 keys from my MacBook, so I wrote a small application to do just that on a hackintosh. Well, I know...
Hi guys. My first Hack in signature is a dual GPU laptop, Optimus, which I disabled through ACPI. I have successfully made 99% of the components work, all is good.
My gf has a Ivy Bridge MacBookPro and so I've dumped a lot of info so as to make my ACPI tables more similar to a real Mac.
I want buy a MSI Nvidia GTX 960 with 4Gb of Ram, in the Buyer's guide i found only 2Gb Versions, if i buy the GPU with 4gb of ram will it be native or i have to install some kext? Scuse me for my bad english but i'm italian :crazy::crazy:
Gave Clover a try against my better judgment as the support and tools here are fantastic. However the hackintosher in me won out and I've been playing with clover for a few weeks now.
From out of the blue I lost audio (1150) although all my setting where present. Audio_realtekALC-100_V1.0.4c...
I've dug through my system.log to make sure that the kernel boot is clean and "stable", and I've found these three USB-related messages in the kernel log:
Jun 18 10:10:38 localhost kernel: USBF: 0.753 AppleUSBEHCI:: unable to get filterInterruptEventSource
Jun 18 10:10:38...
I am a long time member, never really used my dual boot Hackintosh. I now have to, so I upgraded to Yosemite, but I read I need Clover boot loader to make everything work. (including iMessage)
So I did a fresh install.
Currently I don't know "what" works, I know that currently...
