I've followed the UniBeast method, as well as tweaked the SMBIOS to identify my build as a Mac Pro 5,1, and managed to successfully boot the OS X Installer from my USB boot disk. Through the OS X Installer, I used Disk Utility to format my two SSDs as HFS+ GPT in preparation for my Sierra and...
Hello, I recently build the X99 xeon e5-2686v3 18 core hackintosh using Sierra.
I can boot, my GTX960 works fine (acceleration is working as expected) but I think that only one core is working.
In system report I see 18 core CPU but on my Geekbench I have 2020 single and 2040 multi core. I did...
I'm planning to build a compute server / video workstation and thought about a dual xeon setup. I'm not sure yet which xeon processors I will put in this machine but I want to keep it expandable. Should also contain loads of RAM. Of course I want to run macos on the machine, El Capitan...
EDIT: Updated info for 10.13 here.
Ok, this is my first shot at a guide, so it might suck. Hopefully it doesn't. But it might.
So, this is not a all-encompassing start to finish guide. This assumes you're at the point where you're trying to boot a macOS Sierra thumb drive (or the upgrade...
Hello so I am planning to build a hackintosh after deciding it would be a better "bang for your buck" option over getting a 2012 mac mini. This build will be used for photo editing (mainly lightroom/photoshop), some light video work and just general day to day usage. There is not set budget but...
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...
If you've built a dual xeon hackintosh recently, can you please give me some input or the actual rig you're using?
The main purpose of this machine is for cpu based 3D rendering as well as hosting Resilio Sync and acting as a server.
Budget is $2000, or just a little over.
Hi I have similar rig as you, my mb is X99-M WS and CPU is xeon as well.
my problem is different ...cant pass RTC or PCI configuration fail to start and restart the machine...i think those not needed when booting: kext-dev-mode=1 rootless=0
I use : -v npc-0x2000 nv_disable=1 any other keys will...
First of all, please let me know if this type of thread isn't allowed and what to do in that case. In the past, I've only used other people's guides, so I'm just trying to start planning for my own build!
Anyway, I've built two hackintoshes so far, the most recent being...
Is there any way I can hack my BIOS / OS / kexts / WHATEVER to force my CPU into a Turbo state? I have tried searching the forums but it seems like not many people are using Xeons.
My motherboard is ASUS X99-E WS and my processor is Xeon E5 2630-v3
New Xeons - Xeon E5 V4 like E5 2699V4
Does the new Xeons e5 v4 work in El Capitan?
Anyone knows it?
& whats the el capitan CPU limit - Yosemites is 30 Cores.
(including 1 Core for every Hyperthreading... of course...)
Anyone knows it?
Hi, does anybody knows how to get Yose or Capitan run with the New Xeon E5 v4 Processors?
Got a e5 2699v3 in Yose running.
Cinebench r11,5 is 21,8 (only 15cores with HT so 30 Cores - more dont work)
Now i got some e5 2699v4 but looks like they need another Kernel...
Anyone got any infos?
I wanna build a new machine for Audio-Production and wanna ask for your opinion on this build.
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-X99-UD4
CPU: INTEL XEON E5-2670V3
RAM: 128 GB HyperX Savage DDR4-2400 DIMM CL12
GPU: EVGA Geforce GTX970 SSC ACX 2.0
COOLING: LEPA EXllusion 240
Anyone of you using...
I have been interested about trying to make myself a Hackintosh system for a while. The internet has been filling with Skylake Hackintoshes for a while now but they all use the Intel's Core CPUs. I was just wondering does anyone know how much do the Z170 and C232 chipsets differ in this context...
I recently bought a used HP Z620 because my iMac couldn't cope with all the Simulations I threw at him and I also needed a rendering beast.
Here are the specs:
HP Z Workstation
2x XEON E5-2670
Gainward Phantom GTX 970
Anyway.. I miss OS X and all it's glory so I was...
Should I upgrade Mac Pro 1,1 or build new system
I have been following this website for a while and i've been interested in putting together a hackintosh.
I'm torn between two ideas.
1. Restoring a Mac Pro 1,1 by putting 2 Xeon Quad core processors, SSD, and max out the ram...
I searched here a guide for this installation but i found two types of guides: Guides for who has got a xeon but a nvidia gpu and guides for who has got an i7 (or i5) and a 390. I'm right in the middle (Just see my signature) and I don't know what to do? Is there any remote chance that I can...
