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...
Been a follower of the community for sometime now and always wanted to try this mod out for myself. I recently acquired a working Powermac G5 off my local classifieds for only $60! AND I promise I will either use or give these working parts to someone else so that they can live on! ;)...
Since I owned a Powerbook G4 I wanted to own also a PowerMac and later a Mac Pro, but Apple never made one for me. One Tower Mac that I could argue to buy. After more then 15 years of using apple hardware I decided to build my own tower Mac. So there it is.
I got the inspiration for...
Hello, this is my first post.
I got a Powermac G5 and want to make a casemod now.
My question is if one has a good idea for the I/O shield.
I would like to try to change as little as possible from the outside.
Sorry for my bad english but I am from germany.
I've been lurking through this particular forum for years. I received a dead PowerMac G5 a long time ago, and immediately knew that some day it would become my first Hackintosh. And that day has finally come, thanks to the awesome builds I saw around here.
My PowerMac G5 was a 2004 dual 2.0 GHz...
So, I am officially crazy...
I bought 26 Powermacs (G5)
And I modded them ALL
They are now ready for ATX and mATX Mainboards…
But why 26?
Did I mention I was crazy?!
(And they were only sold together…)
I modded G5 Cases before – They kind of became my passion.
This time I wanted everything...

I bought a 2003 mac pro 1.8ghz duel off ebay, It installed osx 10.5 fine but when it restarted and played the welcome screen the power cord got pulled ( kids ! )
Since then it wont boot from the HD or the DVD. It chimes and then the apple logo loads but no spinning. I have reformatted the...
Hi there! This is the first post I make in this community, but it's the result of hundreds of hours spent lurking.
I present to you my PowerMac G5 Hackintosh:
This is the result of months of research, work and frustration.
The list of parts:
-Supermicro X8SIL-F Motherboard
As the title says, this is a long term project, as money/time allows. But I have a near perfect condition (just some surface scratches) PowerMac G5, that I'd like to build a mackintosh in. I already can run macOS on my current rig, which I'm replacing with a Xeon build. So I'll have the mobo...
Hey all. Just got my first G5!

I plan on upgrading the RAM to it's full 8 GB
And i'm thinking of getting a Nvidia 7800, as i heard the card is compatabile with both Mac and PC, correct?
Also, i'm thinking of perhaps...
I have been reading and exploring Tonymacx86 for a couple of months now but I finally decided to go for the adventure instead of buying a new Mac (currently owning a Macbook Pro mid-2010). Hence the name is this project : Goodbye Steve !
First, I posted a couple of weeks ago...
I've been lurking on these forums for a very long time and the time has finally come to contribute something back.

I've moved the thread over to the Completed Mods section with nicer pictures; Click Here!
I will leave some raw pictures here.
When I bought it, it looks like this.
After modding, it looks like this:
I've been working on G5 case modding for some months and finally managed to get it almost Completed.
The concept of my build is a case for ultimate high-end workstation or gaming rig. Which can hold large SSI EEB mobo to support dual CPU configuration and possesses 9 expansion slots so...
Sorry if this may sound like a stupid question... I am new to this whole concept of a Hackintosh... But i love it!!!
I just picked up PowerMac g5 which i loved for a long time. Even in 2016 the case is so futuristic. My question is if anyone can point me in the right direction ? of what parts i...

Following the advice of the lovely people on this forum, I have wired my button/LED like so (pic is rotated; wires are going toward the top of the case):
