Hi. My friend wants me to build a computer for him that's capable of running El Capitan and Pro Tools HD.
I have no doubts about the hardware and OS X, it's a Gigabyte Z170XP-SLI, Core i7 6700K, 8GB Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4, 240GB Kingston SSD and a 1TB Seagate Barracuda HDD.
The thing is...
I have a solid install of Mountain Lion, but it's time to update to Yosemite for compatibility reasons.
I'd prefer to wipe my current OS drive and begin with a fresh install of Yosemite.
Since I already went through the MOBO settings when installing Mtn Lion, do I need to go through these again...
I'm an artist/producer using Pro Tools 10. For pretty much as long as I can remember, my hackintosh has had a problem with Pro Tools CPU usage, it throttles back in forth constantly. Could be 20% one second then 80 the next. As a result, I have to run extremely light sessions or constantly...

Been doing forum searches the last couple hours before posting, as I didn't want it to come across as spam. I work within audio and am need of running OSX for stability with certain pieces of software. Specifically, Pro Tools.

Considering a build for a friend of mine who has a 3 card PT|HD system. It IS PCI-e, so that's not an issue. However, since this PT hardware runs on 32bit operating systems only, I'm locked into using Mountain Lion or older. My question is, of the available motherboards, which would be more...

Avid Firewire conflict FIXED
I think this problem is not only related to the Hackintosh world, since I found many threads with "real" mac users having this case.
I tried to install Pro Tools 8.4 (2010 !) LE as I own the original installation disc, selecting the default option with core...

When I manage to start up...
I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on building my first hackintosh and was hoping to receive the forum's blessing first. This rig's main purpose will be to run Pro Tools 11 with my Digi 003 rack as an interface. Down the road, I hope to install an RME AES32 card to replace the...

This is my first post on Tonymac! Hello! I normally find enough information from looking through other posts but I'm at a dead end with this one. I've been around Hackintosh's for a few years but I wouldn't say I was an expert so go easy!
